Because I Want To. Hmph.


I realized that I haven't been random in a long time, what with either posting blah-blah on life and crap or just not posting at all. And I just happen to be addicted to random, so I'm gonna go ahead and be just that. Okay? Okay.

1) People should really, really, REALLY take captcha off their blogs. Like really. Why? Because when I'm reading 25 blogs a day and commenting on every single one, I just want to read, comment and get the hell outta there instead and sitting around, twiddling thumbs and typing out strings of letters. Do my sanity a favor and please take it off? Please?

2) Waiting for Grey's Anatomy's season finale is killing me. If Yang leaves, I will sue somebody. Scandal is heating up and promises to be very interesting. If you haven't seen it yet, well, you're missing something. Castle's season finale is due too. But I, for one, have gotten to a point where I say, "Beckett, with all due respect, just kiss Castle already!!"

Why, I'm watching so many soaps? Because I have nothing better to do.
And since I have run out of episodes of Fringe, The Mentalist and HIMYM, suggestions for my "To Watch" list are more than welcome (any TV show, movie, any genre except senseless action).

3) I finally changed my Blogger interface (not that I had much choice) and I enabled dynamic views as well, gave up my pretty little header too for the damn thing. AND it seems very difficult to customize, so I don't like it. Is it worth the change? You tell me.

4) Avengers was EPIC. To say that The Hulk made the cake from scratch and THEN took it would be an understatement. And it's a pity it took two parts of Iron Man for me to fall for Robert Downey Jr. Chris Evans disappointed though. Scarlet Johansson was, erm, an eyeful :P
The Dark Knight Rises is going to be even better. You should watch both EVEN if you don't understand men who wear their underwear outside for the same reason you'd watch the Titanic in 3D even when you know the dialogues by-heart and are not a mush fan.

5) THEY BLOCKED PIRATEBAY!! (When I write a whole sentence in all caps, you must assume that I'm screaming it out at the top of my voice while cursing the 'D.O.T' with the choicest of cuss words in the four languages I happen to know. Oh to know the funny part, you need to read the second headline here.

6) It's been four months since I blogged regularly, four months since I commented frequently. But I notice that I still keep getting comments on my posts. I always thought that if I stop visiting and commenting on other blogs, that I would stop getting any on mine. That my blog would go to sleep like it did a few years ago. Thank you for proving me wrong. I especially thank the people who commented on the last five-seven posts who I didn't reply on time to OR visit. Thank you. 

7) Summer sucks. It's NOT all about the flowers blooming and the sun shining and back to wearing shorts and sneakers. It's not even about getting a rain-check from, well, the rain. It's about the grime and the ick and the dust and the power cuts and sweat and the godforsaken heat. It's about wearing only liner and kajal and still have it melt off your face. 

The way summer is described is this...

What you actually feel like is this....

Well, you get the point...

Ciao then, I'll see you on the other side of Vicky Donor.

P.S: Instagram is addictive. If any of you are active over there, leave your handles in the comment section.
P.S.S: I was serious about suggesting something to watch. Very serious.

78 comments:

  1. A nice round up of your thoughts. As always, well written. ;) And about the Tv Shows, you should definitely check out Breaking Bad. Very veeery addictive.

    1. Thanks love...
      I got bored with supernatural after a while though... Dunno why :/

    2. I've left it midway too....these shows develop a pattern and become predictable. I understand :D And yes, I think this is the millionth time, but I miss you. :D

      Delete
    3. Predictable is THE word -_-

      And aren't you getting my texts, babe? :(

      Delete
    4. Demons, Angels and now a prophet.
      Predictable doesn't even begin to describe Sam and Dean now. Hmph.
      But all that is less of a torture when Sam takes off his shirt <3<3

  3. Nice dash of randomness after a serious streak - good change up.

    With due respect to the Castle fanatics - its sort of tapered off bluntly the last few episodes hasn't it?

    Try checking out - Suits, Burn Notice and Human Target if you can, they ought to keep you going a while.

    Cheers :)

    1. Zank you, Mister :)
      It did. But I find it difficult to leave midway unless it's THAT boring, so I trudge on :/

      Will do, thanks:) I've been hearing good things about Burn Notice for some time now :)

      Delete
    2. Burn Notice is pure awesomeness btw!

  4. We don't if you've already seen it but we totally recommend you to watch Sex and the City :D

    3. SATC was EPIC ;)
      I so love Carrie's narration ;)
      And as far as I know you, You'd kill for it too :)

  5. Well I would suggest Frasier for something to watch. I don't think I'm likely to switch to a Dynamic View, I just don't see the appeal. I'd heard about the TPB block too and find it beyond ludicrous, it's even stupidly simple to bypass. It's not affected anyone really. Way to prove you have no idea how to work the internet you want to censor. Now leave it alone. Having something like my blog still getting comments when I thought it wouldn't is something I would be happy to be wrong about. I would also love it if people got rid of capcha. Comment moderation is much more effective at preventing spam, or at least preventing people from seeing it. Like internet censorship, capcha only harms the innocent.

    Replies
    1. Frasier, I catch on TV.. So I don't need to download it.
      I'm switching right back first chance I get coz it sucks :(
      I know right? Why do they even bother with all the blocking in the first place?
      -_-
      Exactly.
      Thanks for dropping by Mark :)

  6. Randomness and PeeVEe- this is what makes the best combination :D
    Well I really loved the earlier look of your blog. This looks little sad :(

  7. Desperate Housewives? Gossip Girl?? Have you SEEN what Blair's been up to?!

    Dynamic views...well...I don't like it too much...it doesnt let you do much...specially after you've slogged on making your blog look pretty for years!

    And...randomness rules. Seriously? Seriously.

    1. Desperate Housewives I watch on the telly. Hearing good things about Gossip Girl, not too teenager-y? Coz I'm a little too old for that now :P

      I KNOW, RIGHT!! Damn them for luring me :(

      Seriously.
      :P

      Delete
    2. Gossip Girl is all about pretty envious dresses, blairy scheming and nate Archibald <3
      You gotta watch it ;)

      Delete
    3. Of course it's teenager-y...in the most sexy evil manipulative way possible! And NOT in a Beverly Hills spoilt brats meet Paris Hilton kinda way. TRY IT!

  8. They should ban captcha. 2 or 3 spam comments is OK rather than putting off the readers.

    There is a show called 'Raising Hope'(Star World 22:30). An absolute must-watch :)

    Loved your previous blogger interface. To be honest, this one is not at all good.

    hehe..loved the cat's summer pic :D :D :D

    1. Exactly my point.

      Of the Hope and Faith fame? What genre is it?

      I'm changing it back :(

      :P Me too... that was icing for me :D

      Delete
    2. Hope and Faith? Am unaware of that.

      This is about Jimmy raising his infant daughter Hope :)

  9. Loved the randomness ! :)

    On the TV shows front, I will be starting Game of Thrones. Umm ofcourse you have watched The Big Bang Theory, 2.5 men and the likes?

    Am raring to watch the avengers. Hearing about Hulk everywhere makes me already drool over him - sigh !

    enjoy Vicky donor and tell us how it was! :)

    1. Game of Thrones, yes. The other two I've watched :)
      Do go ASAP, worth the 250 bucks you shell out...
      I'm crushing so hard on Ayushmann's Punjabi :D

      Delete
    2. Game Of Thrones was so confusing at first.
      British is what they speak and oodles of money is what it makes.
      Definitely the most expensive show I've ever followed. ;)
      Must watch PeeVee.
      Little advice - If possible, catch it when you're alone ;):P

      Delete
  10. The Big Bang Theory. PLEASE watch it, if you already haven't.

    I've only watched the first season, and a few episodes of the second season, of GA. Stupid Reliance is not letting me download properly. :/ I'm watchinh reruns now so that I can get dreams of McDreamy. *major drooling*

    I'm in love with Hulk. I don't care that he is big and green, has anger management issues, will need new a new set of clothes every now and then- I lou him. And the scene that totally did it for me was when the villain shouts "I'm a God!" and Hulk smashes him the way dhobis wash clothes. What fun!!!
    And Robert Downey Jr.. *drool* Been in love with him since Sherlock Holmes. Watch it if you haven't, especially the first part.

    Vicky Donor is total fun! Annu Kapoor is a total rockstar. So is Ayushmann, who is my new crush.

    Dynamic view sucks. Period. This doesn't look like PeeVee's space. This looks like Pee*yawn*Vee's space. Change. Fast.

    Aaaaand I'm back to leaving mile-long comments. :p

    1. Who doesn't love Sydney :D

      I've finished it twice over and yet I can't stop watching it all over again, I think I'm starting to give GA second place after FRIENDS :D

      :D I know, right!! I was laughing so hard I thought Pepsi was gonna come out my nose :P And the other scene when he takes a potshot at Thor :D Such timing!
      I have, but didn't like it as much as Benedict's portrayal of Sherlock... But then he's droolworthy all by himself :D

      Damn, I can't afford to have a yawn space now, can I? :D

      Thank you because I missed you.

  11. 1) Nodding my head and nodding so much that I am scared it might fall!
    2) Addicted to Scandal and Castle!
    3)Actually the previous one was better. It had a very 'happy happy' loo k to it :)
    4)Loved Avengers, still have to watch The Dark Knight.
    5)Yes, they BLOCKED it!
    6) Its not some lind of business, is it? Everyone else and I follow you because we love your work and not to make ourselves notice!
    7)Summer SUCKS, big time! The only best thing about summers is mangoes! Mabe there are other good things but nothing strikes my mind right now!
    P.P.S. Something to watch. Tried Entourage, Modern Family, Men of a certain Age?

      6) Over here in Blogger, it seems to be an established fact that people reciprocate only if we take the first step. But then, I was proved wrong and happily so :)
      7) Mangoes and watermelon. And lollys. But that's about it, no?

      First two, watched. Third, will start off, thank you :)

  12. I've been waiting for that goddamn kiss since forever.

    Watch Gossip Girls, The Big Bang Theory, Community, Dexter, The Vampire Diaries, House, and I would suggest a lot more but I'm starting to sound like Miss-See-It-All.

    Yes, randomness rules. Especially when it's YOU being randomn.

  13. Honestly, I am not much fond of blogger's new dynamic looks. It doesn't give any chance to use our own thoughts to design the blog. Looks so mechanical! Plus your blog's previous look was lovely. Change it back na!! :-)

    And God! I skipped a beat on point 5. *checked the site without a delay*..PHEW!!!

    P.S: Summer is BAD.

  14. UGH - Captcha is so annoyingggg! And I've been watching a million and one shows these days too!
    PS: I've seen many bloggers shift to the dynamic view but I've never liked it. You can't personalize it and it makes it boring !

    ReplyDelete
  15. 1>Even I'd been out of blogging since January. Had my boards. But now that it's over, I'm back :) And I *don't* have captcha. I hate it personally

    2> I don't see Big Bang Theory in the list! WATCH BIG BANG THEORY! There's an old show, Whose Line is it Anyway, and then there's Simpsons of course. And Friends re-run, why not? *_* And I found the 'Joey' show extremely disappointing. :(

    3>Even I had converted to Dynamic views when I came back. But, its not worth it. Almost 0 customizations,no gadgets, and I can go on and on.

    4>And Hulk. Smash. :p

    5> Off to the shores? No more?

    PS - And as of Vicky Donor, I had to watch it with my parents +_+. We got free tickets from Honda, AND WHO REFUSES FREE TICKETS ANYWAYS?!

    One thing I did recently when I had nothin more to watch was google out the 'best R rated comedies of all time' n see them one at a time.... trust me, it a very rewarding experience... two an a half men with Charlie, anyone???

    I'm on a months's break from work and tell me about the boredom. I'm surviving on 'Desperate Housewives' now. Try it if you haven't yet. Its awesomeeeeeee :)

    Hulk is the man. Can't wait for the dark knight to return. But this year, the 'Amazing Spiderman' looks kinda promising. Lets see how it goes.

    And you know what, random rocks!!

    P.S: The next time you miss from your blog I'm gonna take a gun and come hunting you down.
    P.S.S: Ditto if you miss from my blog. I mean I post something and you comment after a month??! Seriously woman, I'm not kidding on the gun thing :D

  30. Removing your lovely header is really not worth it. I don't know how you feel about it but I missed it. And the heat. It's raining here in Kochi, it's nice and cool and slushy. I am not a huge fan about the last part though. The cat pic is too funny. Don't tell me you scowl at the heat like that! :D

  31. I removed captcha off my blog. There were way too many spam comments, but its alright. I can delete them :)

    I can give you TV Shows suggestions all day:
    Big bang theory, Modern Family, That 70s show, outsourced, Sherlock, White collar, prison break, burn notice, clone high, etc :P

    I loved your header. :P
    Damn the dynamic view! :/

    I stillll haven't seen Avengers. But I will, soon. Hopefully. :P

    Piratebay's back now!! :D

  33. I really like this interface more than the previous one. I found it so difficult to maneuver around it. So did you watch the season finale of Grey's? I was pretty disappointed. I mean, a tragedy, again? Also, watch Sherlock. It's really good! Oooh add me on Instagram! I'm obsessed with it too! Handle : zarinem

  34. Wow! Not active on Blog and you get 64 comments! *jealous*

  35. 1. Totally agree, I usually try to catch up with loads of blogs at one go, and typing in the captcha code for each one is really annoying :/
    I removed the captcha on mine after I realised how frustrating I find it when commenting on other people's blogs.

    2.Here is a list of shows I watch and recommend:

    The Vampire Diaries
    Big Bang Theory
    New Girl
    Gossip girl

    3. Personally, I don't like the dynamic view thingy, for some reason it looks weird when I open it on my laptop. Like the right scrolling bar appears twice. Don't know if that makes sense :/

    4. I still haven't watched Avengers! Gah, I really need to go watch it.

    5. I know! Gah, I'm so pissed off about that too :(

    6. I think you have one of those blogs which people actually WANT to keep up with! At least that's how I feel. A lot of stuff you write is relateable and I actually look forward to reading your posts :D

    7. Ahh I know. A lot of people think of summer as this beautiful time but I think it depends on where you live. In some places, summer is like.. the worst time of the year.
