one liners...

Its one of those Sunday mornings when you are generally looking around for something to sink your teeth in. This thing on TV might have just done it for me, I think ;)

So this HP commercial goes "Hi I am Sid and I love music". That just cracks me up. I mean...someone is actually getting paid to come up with a line like "I love music"?

"Hi, nice to meet you. So what do you do for fun?"
"I love Music!"
"Sure, mate. How about that 'breathing' thing? Thats also pretty cool, no?"

While on annoying one-liners, there is the Ms. Alcohol Saint. You run into these characters in most parties.

"Hi, nice to meet you. Can I get you a drink?"
"oh no, thanks. I get high on life"

Feisty! Note she doesn't just say "I dont drink, thanks". No way! - that would be self-deprecating. And worse, would just answer the question. You gotta be more elaborate than that. You gotta have a STORY behind your teetotaling.

"Hi, nice to meet you. Can I get you a drink?"
"oh no, thanks. I get high on life"
"Thats just so sad, sweetie. Out here, we get high on life AND alcohol. na nana na na!"

Another oft-spotted-party-species is Mr. DadINeverHad. These guys usually are the hosts.

"Alrite, chief. I think we will head home now. Thanks for having us. Good night"
"Oh it is so late. Please call and let me know you guys reached OK".

Now folks, I have had quite a few late nights in my life and met many Mr. DadINeverHads. And given the limited capabilities of my memory, I almost always forget to make 'that' call. I just find it strange that none of 'em have ever called me back, or come out looking for me or filed a police complaint, or even complained of losing sleep that night.

"Alrite, chief. I think we will head home now. Thanks for having us. Good night"
"Oh it is so late. Please call and let me know you guys reached OK"
"Sure. And you call me when Rakhi Sawant cracks mensa".

Hmmm... Would I ever (in this lifetime) fall under the category of Ms. Alcohol Saint?

And remember the party at my place... drunk as I was... I did call anyone who didn't call me to tell me they reached home... who knows, huh... Rakhi might crack the mensa after all... there's hope yet :)

@Arch: haha...I think it will go well with my new beard ;)
@Wanderlust: MomWeNeverHad would never do that for the srilanka trip....considering I have not paid her back for the flight tickets ;)
@Raaga: I remember that party! And I think your gesture was greatly influenced by my vodka-green chilly recipe ;)
About Rakhi, what can I say. You have always been the eternal optimist. I kinda realized that the day you hired me!

Raaga said...

Hmmm... and Sachin would bet anything to prove the vodka-chilli recipe was INVENTED by him ;-) You guys have got to meet!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming
having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
