Confessions that are bound to make me pretty damn unpopular

1) I hate the idea of flowers as gifts.

I know you girls have bewildered expressions on your faces and are all "What?? You don't deserve to be a girl!!!', but seriously, there is no point to flowers as gifts. Number one, they're bloody expensive and number two, THEY DIE. Period.

2) Ice Cream isn't really that great.

Its creamy and its cold. Considering the fact that I'm not the biggest fan of cream or milk or anything cold, it just doesn't have that appeal on me.

3) I would gladly live in a tiny room with neon pink walls.

If you haven't noticed by now, I happen to have a pretty high tolerance of 'I-will-make-you-blind' colours. I would marry a rainbow and have its brightly coloured rainbow babies if I could.

4) I'd pick a quiet night home over going out any day.

And by going out I mean partying, clubbing, pub hopping, being in strange social situations, wanting to chop my head off for actually agreeing to go on one of the above mentioned night outs.

5) I expect service when I go out someplace to eat, and when I'm not happy, I make it known to the staff and the 34 other diners that are sitting around.

This is something I cannot help. I expect value for my money, not menus with a 150 items listed on them and ingredients for the kitchen to prepare only 10 of them. Yes, I am talking to you, Café Coffee Day.

6) I'm the only person on this planet who didn't think that 'The Dark Knight' was all that!

Yea, yea, hate me already. You know you want to.

I agree with the 5th and the 6th bit. As far as the Dark Night goes, I hate you already! :D

Do drop by my blog sometime. I don't have neon colours, but I have waving cows!! :D

u hated "The Dark Knight"???.. i hope by that u dont mean u hated JOKER.. i kept wishing that they had joker on screen all the time.. and i became such a fan that i refuse to acknowledge him as heath ledger anymore.. he will always be JOKER.. R.I.P..
i like flowers but giver me a potted plant anyday.. buying a bouquet off a shelf is not my idea of a good gift.. but give me white lilies anyday and u can literally see me melting.. :-)

YOU also LOVE telling people to update don't you, like your blog wasnt dead for months sometime teh beginning of this year. wicked.. hmph.

AND ZOMG? No flowers or ice-creams??? Even I'm lactose-intolerant(I think) but I can't do without icecreams. Don't tell me you dont even do those liclollies.

I'm ok with the rest. hate cafe coffee day, and havent yet seen the dark night.

Blogger Nags had this to say:

agree to most except the neon pink walls. i like elegant off-white spacious and airy rooms :D hehe..

and yes, dark knight was hyped and though this might be the meanest thing to say, i think heath ledger's performance seemed better to the audience cuz of the audience. the objectivity was lost and that surely did do it some good. i felt depressed after the movie and that, i don't like ;)

I agree regarding #1. I'd much rather get USB Flash Drives than flowers. Although, I must say, I'm easily peeved when it comes to neon colours- especially men donning neon cyclist shorts!

Blogger Bungi had this to say:

I am with you on flowers. Though i get it for my desk every now and then... Just a single flower.

Ice cream - not my favorite dessert. Chocolate is something to die for!

But the Dark Knight?!! Well, i didn't really care for the dark night as much as for the Joker... So...

Not a big fan of coffee day either...

Anonymous Anonymous had this to say:

Hmm... I hate icecream. I don't understand why people love it so damn much.

No, you're not the only person who hated the Dark Knight -- I didn't like it, too. Ledger's performance was wonderful, though.

"I would marry a rainbow and have its brightly coloured rainbow babies if I could."
lol. :D

Agree with you on the first five. But not liking the Dark Knight!!? Woman, you must be punished!!!

1. I know you girls have bewildered expressions on your faces and are all "What?? I'm sure a lot of guys have a similar expression. I not a big fan of flowers as gifts either, but beyond flowers and chocolates, what do you get a girl?

2. You haven't tried Gelato yet?

3. and have its brightly coloured rainbow babies if I could. Be careful what you wish for. This is the age of genetic engineering.

4. Amen!

5. 10 of them? Try going on Friendship day or Valentine's day. They prepare just 2 or 3 of the most expensive items then.

6. You're not alone there. I wasn't a big fan of the Dark Knight either. Heath Ledger's role was an exception however.

You DIDN'T like the dark knight ?
Wait, when was the last time you had a CAT scan ???

Anonymous Anonymous had this to say:

I would prefer a quiet night home too. I don't know if its my laziness or my general uncomfortableness in groups but I'd rather stay at home and sleep or maybe read than going out, getting drunk and dancing my ass off.

You don't like ice cream, you don't like flowers.
Please tell me you're from Mars. That seems to be the only logical explanation.

these could kick off a new trend for all you know!

uhm.. minus the bright rainbow coloured babies.

Blogger Hershey Desai had this to say:

1. Finally! Flowers as gifts...what a pathetic thing to give. You don't even choose the flowers, that's the florist's job. I say, if you grew these flowers yourself, then only you deserve to give them as a gift.

2)!!! of course ice cream on its own isn't that great. But..Ben N Jerry's Cookies and Cream ice cream...mmmmm

3) uhhh... I prefer sky hues myself.

4) YAY! Ban the clubs. They are evil. With their silly techno music that makes no sense.

5) Lol, go starbucks! The price is high, but the service is good.

6) Dark knight...meh. Batman looks fat, and joker sucked. I can play a more psychotic version of him. Anthony hopkins was THE joker. Thats it. I did like two face though. He looked nice. But the story kinda sucked.

Batman sucked, the chinese mummy sucked, the journey to the center of the earth sucked. 007 quantum of solace is gonna suck, am waiting of madagascar 2. Thats the only movie thats gonna rock

Flowers as GIFTS... suck!!

A quiet night day mornin evening...anything at home and alone is superb!!

Anonymous Anonymous had this to say:

agreed with the flowers. why to spend on something so expensive that would eventually rot and end up in the garbage?

i can't live without ice cream. it would be a deal-breaker.

quiet day at home, with a good book and soothing mint tea... huh, in my dreams!!!

I agree with all of those except maybe the ice cream one... I like ice cream but usually only eat homemade icecream that my mom makes or the strawberry blue belle ice cream. But the rest, I'm with ya!
