<(^_^<) (>^_^)>

Saturday night was P-A-R-T-Y night. Whoo! My college had the convocation ceremony for the graduates slash the freshers party for the B.M.M. students. I think they had both at one go so 'cause they're way too miserly to shell out bucks for two parties. So they settled for one instead. That's just my theory though. Of course the college didn't really spend on this party either. They asked all the B.M.M. students to donate Rs. 200 for the party, so it was sort of like we're throwing the party for ourselves. That's kinda sad, yeah?

Anyhoo, everything was oodles of fun. Even the formal ceremony where the graduates got to wear their black gowns and caps. I was oh so jealous of all of them. And when they posed for photos and collectively threw their caps into the air, I got goosebumps. I can't wait to wear that gown and throw my very own cap!

The entertainment section was with the skit and dance and stuff. Oh then there were the chief guests; the most famous of them being Cyrus Broacha and Shiney Ahuja. I loved hearing Cyrus speak 'cause he was hilarious as always, and had the audience in splits with his slightest comment and expressions. He told us some inappropriate stories as well, which we students enjoyed tremendously but the principal looked scandalised. Cherry on our cake :-D

The most fun part of the evening was the afterparty, which was shocking 'cause I was sure I wasn't gonna dance. Not that I don't like dancing. I like it a lot. But only within the confines of my own home and without any witnesses. Bathroom dancer, if you will. Though that would be kind of weird 'cause high possibilities of me slipping and breaking my neck while dancing in the bathroom.

But when the D.J. started playing some of my favourite songs, I just couldn't resist. Hey, it was dark and the dance floor was crowded. No one was interested in seeing how bad I was at dancing. That's what I told myself, anyway. The crowded part was horribly true. At one point, there was a classmate dancing behind me, and I accidentally kept banging my head against his every few minutes. I would have been embarrassed but I'm still hoping he didn't notice me. Anyway, once I hit the dance floor, there was no stopping me. I danced and danced like a crazy person. And here I am, two days later, with my body still aching and my muscles still groaning at the torture I put them through. Ah well. The end.

*rolling on the floor laughing* well, not literally, duh.

Oh it's been too long since I posted. A week maybe? OK not that long then. Anyhoo, I found this amazingly hilarious site called Bash. It's a pretty simple site where users can post funny chats that they've been a part of or have witnessed. You would have to browse through the site to believe the hilarity that is generated on the Net in such large quantities. For example, this is a convo I found:

(egof) I'm not that nerdy, I've only seen 30% of the star trek episodes

(kaj) if you know what percentage of the star trek episodes you have seen, you are inarguably nerdy

(egof) it's unarguably

(kaj) you are not helping your case


Oooh and here's another one:

(Guo_Si) Hey, you know what sucks?

(TheXPhial) vaccuums

(Guo_Si) Hey, you know what sucks in a metaphorical sense?

(TheXPhial) black holes

(Guo_Si) Hey, you know what just isn't cool?

(TheXPhial) lava?

.... and another one:

(ZyblOre) get up

(ZyblOre) get on up

(ZyblOre) get up

(ZyblOre) get on up

(phxl|paper) and DANCE

* nmp3bot dances :D-<
* nmp3bot dances :D|-<
* nmp3bot dances :D/-<

([SA]HatfulOfHollow) i'm going to become rich and famous after i invent a device that allows you to stab people in the face over the internet

And this last one is just so unbelievably funny! It's a bit long, but make sure you hang on till the end ^_^

(DeadMansHand) haha, last night, me and pete went out to celebrate his engagement and got hugely drunk

(DeadMansHand) we got this great idea to bury eachother in the sand close to the water and see who would chicken out first

(DeadMansHand) took about a half hour, but the water got up to my face so i freaked and got out

(DeadMansHand) i looked around for pete and he must've chickened out before me and stumbled home or something heh

(DeadMansHand) What'd he say when he woke up this morning?

(Thirteen-) uhh.. he hasn't come home yet.. i thought he was staying with you?

(DeadMansHand) holy f@#$

(DeadMansHand) i f@#$ing hope im wrong about what im thinking right now

(DeadMansHand) im f@#$ing going back to the beach to make sure

(DeadMansHand) if he gets home, call me, i don't want to be worrying about this

(Thirteen-) will do. you better hope he's not still buried, you'll be in deep S&%^

*quit: (DeadMansHand)*

(Tyran) wtf? pete came home last night you f@#$. Ken's going to be worrying about this s&%^ all day

(Thirteen-) haha yea, but it will be fun while it lasts

*join: (PeteRepeat) (bob@3F8C4655.11D1C8C.18637D35.IP)*

(PeteRepeat) f@#$ing ken

(PeteRepeat) ken... that f@#$er buried me in the sand last night, i ran off about 5 minutes to it, left him there to be an idiot

(quiqsilver) pete, ken didn't come back last night, i thought he was with you.

(PeteRepeat) oh f@#$.

(PeteRepeat) if ken shows up, make sure he doesn't know that im at the beach digging for his body. i don't want him to think i care or anything.

*quit: (PeteRepeat)*

(Thirteen-) rofl. Those 2 are going to get a huge surprise when they meet at the beach.

(Tyran) i can't beleive how perfect their timing was

Did I not promise you ensured hilarity? There are many more convos copy-pasted by the users and you should so check the site out. You can visit it through here. Check out the Top 100 and Top 200 too.

In case you thought neither of these were funny, go read another blog or something.

*Green with envy*

I am so *so* jealous of my friend. He's off in Pune enjoying himself like crazy. He didn't get into the college of his choice here in Mumbai, so he decided to pursue his Bachelors in Mass Media in Pune. That by itself is nothing to be envious about. This is. He's living in an apartment which he rented with three of his classmates. It might not seem like such a big deal to those of you who are accustomed to this sort of thing, but me, I've never lived anywhere except Mumbai within the comforts (confines?) of my own home. His roommates hail from far flung places like Surat, Chennai and Delhi. Since their classes haven't started yet, they stay awake all night, talking and spend the day exploring the city and eating out at cheap restaurants. They're broke college students. What else did you expect?And here I am, studying BMM in a college that is apparently considered the Bombay IIT of BMM colleges. Which is to say, it's a pretty damn good college. It has always been a dream that I would study Mass Media in this college and I'm finally on my way to fulfilling my dream. And I'm miserable! I love the classes, don't get me wrong. It's just the people I can't stand. Most of them are townies or at least behave like they are. Townies is a term synonymous with people living in South Mumbai and they are generally considered to be class A snobs. So, obviously, these people are not my type of people. Then there's the nicer lot of people in my class. They are sweet and simple and everything. But I have the feeling they are too simple for my liking. They seem to like studying (oh, the travesty!) and refuse to bunk lectures even to watch Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na! A movie that I'm so desperate to watch that I'm ready to sit in the theatre all by myself without feeling the slightest trace of embarrassment. So, basically, neither of these people are my type of people! I just drift in and out of class smiling and being all nice while I'm cringing on the inside. And my friend has already made a bunch of friends. His classes haven't even begun! I would so trade places with him in a heartbeat.

If you think of a title, lemme know!

I'm becoming even lazier than usual. I should post more often, yeah? Well, I did start college so busy-busy. Anyway, the whole point of this too-late post is, I saw this wonderful print ad in yesterday's newspaper. The article I spotted it in was about how print ads don't necessarily have to be short to make an impact. They just have to be catchy. Boy, is that true! I totally loved the concept of the ad even though it's grim. This ad is by Contract Advertising and it won the Cannes Gold Lion this year. For those of you who don't know, the Cannes Gold Lion awards are to advertising what the Oscars are to movies.

Like I said, grim. But wonderfully done. (If the pic is too small to view, just click on it).

P.S. For those of you who didn't understand the ad *glares at the offender* read the fine print at the bottom. It says "In India, every year 1.1 million unborn baby girls die before they're born. To stop female foeticide, contact the Aadhar Association at 022 - 28885018

The ad is about spreading awareness about female foeticide and jolting the readers' sensibility people! It's not just some sick twisted thing that I fell in love with! Jeez!
