Another Brick In The Wall

Been hiding.
Firstly there was the birthday recovering. Then there were other birthdays and recovering from them. Then there was random merry making. I think I'm turning into an alcoholic. I'd quit, but it's so much fun, and the alternative sounds like something me and my friends would laugh at.

Which reminds me...isn't Apple the new Microsoft? In the evil empire way. It's everywhere. In the coffee shops, in the offices, on the tele, in hollywood, on that hot girls ear, in my ear. There's just so much peer pressure.

My next laptop is going to be a windows based one.
Ok I lie.

Anyway.

Oh and this was bound to happen. It was waiting to. Like a tick ticking timebomb.

"Ineligible Bachelors: Indian Men Living in U.S. Strike Out"
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123896998996190775.html

But really? "Wife hunting trips"... wtf is that? What cereal are these journalists eating? Should I be responding with "Anyone know a good hunting-jacket shop?"

Although, my office is going to have a field day with that article. Sigh.

hehehehe... ok touche.

I was really minding my business, but my boss came over, slammed the Wall Street Journal on my desk, where this article was on the bloody front page and said "Man, times must be tough for you."

Serendipity said...

I hate the phrase "good catch"! Why is a guy (or a girl) a "catch"? I've never understood it. And yes... "wife hunting trip"?? Seriously?! "interviewed 20 potential brides". I HATE the Indian wedding system where its like applying for a job... they'll interview you, look at your "qualifications", "strengths".. yuck yuck YUCK!

And Apple versus Microsoft... I don't know, I have an iPod and I love it, can't live without it, but my laptop has always been Microsoft-operated. I don't really know how to use a Mac.

Renovatio said...

That's hilarious. But will it start working the other way around? Women making 'hunting' trips down to find men?

Also, I bought myself a non Apple laptop, and plan to continue the trend. Think Sager. I'm in love with this company's machines.

My start up will be a bride mart with the 30 plus and hymen deprived ones going for a 20 percent discount and a free pod

Renovatio said...

Manki dearest, hymen-deprived sounds absolutely horrid. You make it sound like they didn't have a choice in the matter.

Anki said...

this is me at my misogynist best

CrazyDiamond said...

@K: long distance baby. That's the new black.

@Serendipity: According to my boss, I am the perfect target audience for any joke making the rounds.
I beg to differ on this one.

@Sumedha: But as my grandmother points out "there are less divorces in the arranged marriage system". Of course her logic is flawed, but I'm not so critical of it as you are.
I also love my macbook. So there.

@Renovatio: Think about it. It'd be so cool to be hit upon. And bought drinks for. I'm all for being hunted.
SAger...hmmm

@Randy: its mostly overraed. If that helps.

@OJ: thanks muchly.

@Anki:wow
@reno:wow
@anki: WOW
