SunScreen

Alright enough of sarcasm, enough of cribbing, enough of DK Bose bashing and enough of anti-Sachin sentiments. Tomorrow is the last day of my month-long blogathlon (alternatively known as ‘torture’) and I already have a sentimental, oh-what-a-great-experience it was, sort of a post for that.

Anyway, today, for some reason, I feel like humming the song “Sunscreen”…

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth: (I am NOT as fat as I imagine)…

Don't worry about the future; or worry: (The real troubles in my life are imaginary)…

Do one thing everyday that scares you: (I am going to do my taxes today)…

Don't be reckless with other people's hearts, don't put up with people who are reckless with yours: (delete certain phone numbers)…

Don't waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind: (I am going to start running the race backwards)…

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults: (DK Bose can go take a hike)…

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements: (bank statements are like love letters for my dad, so successfully offloaded them to him)…

Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life: (I do know what I want to do with my life, the question is HOW?)…

Don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either: (Why not? I am a sucker for extremes)…

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can: (Mallika Sherawat, here I come)…

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly: (NOW you tell me)…

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them: (If they wanted me to read them, they would write it better)…

Get to know your parents; you never know when they'll be gone for good: (You must be kidding me! Parents are forever)…

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on: (All NINE friends of mine: love you guys)…

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft: (Lived in Kolkata and left before it made me soft; will leave Bombay before it makes me hard)…

Travel: (Yes)…

Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old: (Hope for double digit hikes even for an average performer, hope for the Lokpal Bill to mean something and hope for better anti-ageing creams)…

Don't expect anyone else to support you: (Not anymore)…

Don't mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85: (No more rebonding/straightening/smoothening)…

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it: (Cancel appointment with expensive shrink)…

But trust me on the sunscreen: (I do, I use it everyday)…

Does this mean the post a day program is put on the shelf ???

I said it was a one month exercise, and the one month ends tomorrow... so I have successfully stuck by my resolve...

so after tomorrow, readers are free; no more daily torture; no more forced quality control; no more "what can I write today?"... i will only write when I have something to say

Neil said...

Out of curiosity, isnt it stuck to my resolution? Despite the love hate relationship with your daily posts I will miss them ....

Nefertiti said...

to avoid confusion, let's make it adhered to my resolution...
N DO NOT FIND FAULTS WITH MY POSTS TILL U START POSTING EVERYDAY FROM WORK AVOIDING THE PRYING EYES OF UR BOSS.

I mostly have a hate relationship with your moto musings... so should you close that blog, I won't really miss it

Neil said...

Technically I just pointed out a mistake in your comment. Not your post. So I think youre making a massive mountain out of a tiny itsy bitsy molehill. Stop behaving like a girl!

When are you starting shimontistylestatments.blogspot.com ?

Nefertiti said...

U R NOT ALLOWED TO FIND FAULT WITH ANYTHING ABOUT ME.

and m not starting shimontistylestatements.blogspot.com bcz i have a life

u spelt statement without an e btw...

Neil said...

What happened to your keyboard? Half the stuff you type is in caps.

P.S - I missed the e deliberately so you would feel happy that went one up on me. The things one does for the happiness of others, sigh !

"(Lived in Kolkata and left before it made me soft; will leave Bombay before it makes me hard)"

It's one of the best lines I've read in the recent past. :)

PS: You and Neil bicker like husband and wife. (Just saying. :P)

Hello Girl.. Just read ur entire blogathlon.. No mood to work :p

Some good and great articles...You have many more readers than the 2 losers (Man & Woman)

Just coz someone has been jumping too much on ur head.. i think a good end to this blogathlon would be for you to tag someone who thinks he writes well.. Lets c if his so called 3 readers also stay along in the loooooongggg posts for 30 days!!!!
