Retro: January 2008 (to Tide you over…)

April 29, 2008


When I was in university, I decided along with approximately 47,138,768 other girls that my life should be exactly like the show Sex and the City. I whisked away such minor discrepancies as a fifteen-year age difference between the protagonists and I, and the impossibility of any of the show’s characters affording their lifestyles on […]

Fuck this shit

Kos om di 3eesha. Am taking some time off blogging – I feel stupid, small and demoralized.

Smug Elitist Shits

All I ask is that you read the repugnant post on today’s strike on Scene and Heard. Let them know what you think of their condescending “solidarity” and fear-mongering.

Questions of life

Things I often wonder about: Why technology has taken people to the moon, yet I have rarely sat at a restaurant table that was even. I’m sitting at a wonky one as I write. Why it seems to boggle the capabilities of science to manufacture a woman’s dress shirt that does not gape open at […]

Love in the time of repression

Every woman’s dream, no doubt! I can’t help but think that surely the slogan “matches made in heaven” is tongue-in-cheek? The sly-demure look in the muhajaba’s eyes says yes.

FAZED: Disconcerted or disturbed.PHASED IN/OUT: To introduce/end something one stage at a time. Get it straight! Amazing how many educated people get them confused.

Complete idiocy

August 7, 2007


I am phoneless yet again. I don’t think I deserve a cell phone, frankly, much as I love texting people. This one was a compound loss: first I left it at a friend’s place, and then I went and picked it up from him yesterday. On my way home I made a phone call and […]
