So once again I traverse the deep seas of my innate passion that at times submerges itself beneath a calm n naive facade but is raging n thrashing in the realm of my heart !! And so the mystery of Catgirl unfolds once again to all who are still mesmerized by my perseverance and many more who are yet to be in awe of it !! Catgirl working undercover as a teacher N Blogger henceforth pronounces herself a hard-core feminist !!! A girl out to protect the "woman-cause' in the world of self-loving male; A girl who would do anything she is capable of to restore the image of women which has been tarnished, even in the modern society ! Catgirl Strikes again !!! (my logo since 12 years)

Crackers !!

Ok. I admit I have an acne problem and perhaps the whole world knows about it. But they have to keep reminding me so that I never forget about it for a second. So now I have devised this reply. 
At weddings whenever I meet any hefty aunty, quite oblivious of her extreme ‘gravitational pull’ on this earth, and who thinks it’s her duty to put unmarried girls in complex… 
She: “Oh my God, what happened to your face? Haven’t you seen a good doc?”
Me: Yeah. I did recently
She: What did he say?
Me: He said u have only 2 weeks left to live. It’s incurable !

Occasionally these aunties poke me at weddings, pointedly saying, “You are next. Don’t worry!” 
I just search them out at funerals, and when they are crying over the demise of a beloved, I poke them in the ribs saying,
 “Don’t worry. You are next!” :DDD ( ok….this one is copied!!)
When the food tables are opened up for guests at a Pakistani wedding- a stampede occurs. At those times when any heavy aunty puts her heels on mine to get hold of the serving spoon, stifling a scream of frustration I go like, “It’s ok aunty. Aap lay lain. Main tau her roze khana khati hoon !”
Some women suffer from a deeply embedded superiority complex. They want to show to the world when they have bought the newest lawn –suit displayed on the catalogue front or that new variety of shoes at EBH. When I take a look at them I can never decipher the reason for their purchase. EBH casual shoes are the ugliest (though comfortable- but still not worth the money)- I just pity those ladies.
 Whenever those flowing dresses with exaggerated flare and side-tails are adorned by heavy ladies, my bro goes like “Oh my God! they forgot to change out of their bath-robe!”
At times when guys try to flirt with me

Guy: I would like to take you out for dinner.

Me: Oh so soon? No I don’ like such advances after only a few chats!

Guy: Mind you it’s not a date. I am pretty broad-minded, and you are just my female friend!

Me: Oh right then. My bro is sick of broken relationships. Can I give him your sister’s cell no. so they too can enjoy each other’s company? 
…..and there goes the broad-minded fella..Whooshh!!
(on MSN)
 Aunty jee:      So beta..now u hav done ur MBA..How about learning to cook?
Me(holding breath):     yeah...one of my friend is going to a 'cooking center. so maybe I will join it sometime soon.
Aunty Jee( expressively):    Oh..You must!!!! You know no matter how 
much a girl has studied or learnt, she must know how to cook and do household chores. Am telling you now is the time to prepare before you get married.. You Know when i was 14, I knew how to....
Me(trying to search for Aspirin)..:Oh aunty . Mom is calling. gotta go for dinner. Talk to u later...salam to everyone...Take careeee!!
*Aunty jee blocked*
Thank God. It's over!(chatting and telling to another friend of my recent escape from the dungeon! )

lol crazy girl, love your dialogue on the acne saga's. Best thing to do (as i personally have this issue ever so now and then):
(1) Drink loads of water
(2) If you skin is oily, stop all products and just use a soap and water to clean. This really helped me. Infact I have one soap that I am using for two months now.I'll get the name for you.
(3) Try to stay away from make-up at least for a week, get lots of sleep and keep washing your face, you will see such a drastic change.
(4) You are beautiful with or without acne - relax and dont think about it soo much.

MuslimFirst said...

LOOOOOL! Those stories were funny, but I know, too often the reality as well. My poor Behnu-ji!

That "You're next" line, I've heard that somewhere before, but it was still just as funny this time around!

Yeah, that must be annoying for you ladies, to be bothered by aunties about your marriage, etc. I mean, of course it's a great thing, but to be pushed and pressured makes it unpleasant for even someone who may be eager to find their other half. My sympathies Bili-ladki!"

As for the unwanted advances/flirtations - I don't get it - I mean I know the dating (despite it not being proper) and living in thing is becoming openly popular (without shame on the guy and girl's part), I don't see how guys can do such things, especially when they have sisters of their own. Double standard! Then, the parents also encourage their sons or at least look the other way - let them hit on girls, but tell their daughters to stay put - again DOUBLE STANDARD! So their sons can mess around with someone else's daughter while their own daughter doesn't have a choice??? I grew up with 4 cousin-sisters and even though they might be more liberal than me, I treat girls, Muslim especially, as if they were my own sister - and of course, they are my sisters in Faith, but I try my best to show them respect, look-out for them as best I can, while respecting the limits of being non-mahram. Shame on guys like the one you describe!

Great post Sis!

PS One of my first "loves" was Michelle Pfieffer (she played cat-woman in an early Batman film), so kinda funny that one of my cool Sista's calls herself "catgirl" hehe. Keep up the good wrok my dear!
