yes, but i use baldessarini…


eavesdropping has always been one of my pet intuitive, if ill-mannered, idiosyncrasies. so has alliteration, as you can see, but that’s irrelevant. its not as if i do it intentionally but seat me in a crowded restaurant and i’m more likely to be zoning in on the conversation at the table beside mine than on the one at my own. so its not surprising that i managed to overhear a rather interesting conversation between the four extroverted wierdo females from my finance class before class was due to start.

introverted, extroverted or just plain perverted, everyone knows an auditor or two. and the one steotype trait that all will agree to is the ability to bitch. global warming or cold coffee, speedbreakers or the himalayas. you name it and we can bitch about it. we’ve been known to bitch about how the bright colours of a presenter’s tie hurt our eyes. or how the room temperature’s gone up because someone had fishfingers for lunch. so four females bitching about the predictable uncouth desperation of guys who “probably use gilette aftershaves” is actually pretty tame.

and yet you wonder. do all the guys who turn and stare when the tall one bends down to pick a pencil use gilette? at least half of them are the bearded buffoon variety who would stare even if it was durdana butt doing the bending. i really dont think they use aftershave. and having sat next to some of them i doubt they’ve even heard of the marvellous human invention that is soap… but thats not the point. the point is that you cannot blame a gilette aftershave for the vice in men. just as you can’t credit virtue to issey miyake. or lore-freaking-al. thats like saying you should ban deep freezers because sheikh rasheed ahmed likes ice cream. preposterous. you should stuff him in one and forget about it till at least after the elections.

fortunately i use baldessarini aftershave balm by hugo boss myself and can take an objective view. so i would like to make it abundantly clear that i hold the opinion that unsophisticated voyeurs use gilette aftershaves in little stead.

wouldn’t be surprised if they brushed with colgate though…


do you believe in fairies? if you do, clap your hands.

  1. 1 umarah thats a difficult one.

    “extroverted – intoverted – or just plain perverted” — AAALAA!

    ahh….hugo eh?

    but with gillette ‘its the best a man can get!’ no? and those gillete models are oh-so-drool material 😛

    umm…does axe effect really have that preposterous effect on the females?
    what about rexona deo….sumtihng about kismat-shishmat

    these ads i tell ya! fooling ppl!

    err…my comment has nothing to do with the post na?:S

  3. sheikh rasheed ahmed likes milk. and he says why keep a cow when you can get it from the gawala.
    this was in response to why he didnt get married.
    his gawaala gives him millk.

    i dont know why you insist on quoting our (former?)information minister… he is so well informed about where to get milk from.

    so yeah. issey miyake huh? i didnt know karachi was that developed. thassa kinda high end cologne… most ppl wont know about it even.

    taali aik hath se nahi bajti. what if i only half believed in faries?

  4. 4 mE

    but did you know L’eau d’Issey means “issey’s water” ? bet that makes you think about using the japanese fashion designer’s water in future.

    well i like L’eau Bleue d’Issey Pour Homme for summers, there is a new one they say will launch in 2007 summers, only runner up to this perfume ever is chanel Allure Sport

    but like aint these days you want rent a cow ? and later own it after a certain time period of renting and paying a bit money. but like you can then rent another cow no ?

    im confused

  5. yes, but with owning a cow, there are maintenance and upkeep costs to consider. and keeping a cow is more of a hassle than buying milk off the shelf. that way, you can get fresh milk everytime.
    also, it depends on why you want to keep the cow. for some, keeping a cow also means having ample dungcakes if you ever need to light a fire. also, you can cook it if you ever get hungry and McDonalds doesnt deliver in your village.
    (i personally dont like mcDonalds. just so you know)

    enter xille
    WHERE ISSEY MIYAKE, WHERE DUNG CAKES? {kahan issey miyake, kahan gober}”
    xille dies.

    it’s all his fault for quoting SRA.

  6. 6 mE

    but like when you rent a cow you know the milk will be fresh dont you ??

    and accessories kinda are useful, like you can ward off evil spirits from the smell of the dung being burned while cooking chapaties on it , must taste a bit weird but heck , its cheap fuel ,

    like you know , oil tycoons wil lgo down when like dung powered cars run the market , THEN the person OWNING the cow will be worth a billion

  7. if you were all that worried about chappatis smelling like dung, couldnt you spray issey miyake over the dung, or if yer from karachi, “baldessarini aftershave balm by hugo boss”…
    and if yer really cheap, teh oogling at durdana’s butt type, you’d use EAU DE COLOGNE itself… or was it eau de colgate? i dont know, these fancy shmancy names confuzzle me.

    should we convince shiekh rasheed ahmed to get married? i mean, buy a cow?

  8. *claps hands*

  9. 9 mE

    like you mean put Issey’s water on my roti ? HELL no

    no we wait till cow dung is the fuel source and then we say ” TAKE THAT YOU SRA dumb person”

  10. dude. if the oil tycoons are going down, my search for an arab sheikh becomes rather futile dunnit?

    i KNEW there was wisdom in what my dad was doing when he tried to trade me for three cows.

  11. 11 mE

    so like should you be finding a gawala now ?

  12. dude…i dunno yar… they uthte bethte in sheikh rasheed’s company. which stinks. more than dung cakes or issey’s water

  13. 13 mE

    Issey’s water be perfumed,

    but like so we need to get a new cheap fuel source then, do they make those dug cakes out of goats ? ( and NO i do not look at goats in a funny way )

  14. you know, talk about cheap fuel is TOTALLY taking away from the topic… the closest thing to animals xille talked about was chicks, and sheikh rashid ahmed, who in turned talked about cows.
    yeh goats kahan se aa gayen?

    talk about getting distracted and having a short attention span.
    yer fired.

  15. 15 mE

    but like chicks are not adults , like you know that be bad , Astaghfirullah

  16. my bad, i didnt realise there was a minimum age limit on chicks. they have a minimum speed limit here in UAE, where all the oil comes from and makes the sheikhs rich.
    sheikh rasheed ahmed isnt an arab sheikh, he isnt even rich. he doesnt believe in ownership of cows, which will be a source of fuel in the future, making the gawalas, his friend, rich, and teh sheikhs, poor.

    just reiterating some facts.

  17. 17 mE

    like chicks are always little , you go to hens then, but like that would be for a rooster to think about like goats on the other hand , well some ppl have to think about their age limits as well,

    anyhoo , so aint like SRA rich ? what be happen to all the money he made from pakistan gov?

    and wont gawala’s be more rich than rich sheikhs when dung fuel be happening ? and like dont hugo kinda be like hug-o , like pujnabi wala hug, which in turn brings us back to cows and dungs with cheap smelling fuels and we need issey’s water to smell good and all

    im confused again

  18. goats think about hens, like roosters? or goats think about their age limits??! i think if only people thought half as much as goats, this world would be a BAAAAAtter place.

    and punjabi ANYTHING brings ME back to bhangra man! where on EARTH have YOU been living… “cows and dung and cheap smelling perfumes”… though issey’s water reminds me that karachi has a sea, which is of no apparent use other than dumping oil (that belongs to the rich sheikhs who are CURRENTLY richer than the gawalas, who supply milk to SRA).

  19. 19 mE

    but like didnt SRA mean milk and cows as metaphors ? and like why the heck would sheikhs come to karachi to dump their oil in its sea? like dont they get more money selling that thingy as fuel make them more money than gawalas , ( like not SRA’s gawalas, like those are metaphoric ones )
    and like goat give cheeze, hens just give eggs and like if men think like goats then there would be huge cases of those like unhealthy cases of men chasing she goats around and like waznt there cheap smell coming from drinking beer ? like dont that require age limit to have an id or somethingy

  20. STOP PRESS!!!

    DID YOU, mE, UP THERE, by ANY chance, say “issey’s water be perfumed”?!
    how the HELL do you know taht…. dont tell me you been sniffin issey’s water…………. or issey’s ANYTHING FOR THAT MATTER…
    leave the sniffing to goats will u?

  24. 24 mE

    like you really need to read L’eau d’Issey Pour Homme , weikkipedia perhaps ?

    and like dogs are like famous for sniffing no? like goats are known to eat grass, like cows are to give milk though goats do that too, but like hens they dont give milk nor they eat grass, but like a cat eats grass when it sneezes, does not mean it give eggs , but chicks be little hens which come out from eggs , and like eggs can be mashed but they dont give chicks , and chicks dont sniff, they just walk around the hen, and eating worms , but like worms could be used to get fish, and fish live in the sea and the sea be the place where you say sheikhs dump their oil in to gain profits and be richer than gawalas.

  25. you need to get a life, youve been watching too much of national geographics. i dont know the names of my first cousins… really.

    anyways. ive just been given a promotion and a raise, so imna head home… P A R T Y!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BOOYAH!

  29. 29 SK

    ‘with gillette ‘its the best a man can get!’ no? And to this I would really like to add (too tempting!) ‘the best a man can get….coz he doesn’t really deserve much more!’ 😉
    Psyched: ‘those gillete models are oh-so-drool material’ My ex was like one of those ‘drool’ materials. And he knows it! JERK! 😦
    Xil: Since no one here has really related to your post, thought I’d keep up with the ‘tradition’ and just say…’do you believe in fairies? if you do, clap your hands.’ Aah…Finding neverland.. nice movie. 🙂 Oh and it’s not the ‘fairies’ we have a problem with, it’s the ‘farts AKA men nowadays’….excluding the ‘younger generation’ blogworld of course! 😉
    *and the award for the worst, most unrelated comment to a post goes to SK!*…*clap, clap* 🙂

    @ no one: if you think he’s hot thenn you’re either blind or dumb or both or worse 😦 . i feel for you.

    @ everyone: i quote the wikipedia article on him

    he use to be a pimp for the military and is not male. Actually he was born as a male, but later his parents chose to have his male organs removed. Pakistan Muslim League prides to have such a person as their leader.

    i swear i din’t write it. 😀

  53. 53 No One

    “@ no one: if you think he’s hot thenn you’re either blind or dumb or both or worse 😦 . i feel for you.”—> I was trying to be sarcastic…trying to be funny…take it easy! :D…and I can’t believe people actually wrote that about him…(referring to the wiki article)…tahh.

  54. 54 No One

    @ Psych: aahhaha…come on…a girl can be honest from time to time…ehehe.

    xille, just cuz it’s your blog that doesnt mean you have to talk even when u have nothing to say…
    ‘remain silent and be thought a fool…’

    (really, im not kicking yo behind on purpose… it just happening bro!)

  59. Q: what do they call a million year old pest who weighs 350 pounds and looks like sheikh rasheed’s cow?

    A: a hemlock.

  60. 60 SK

    ‘remain silent and be thought a fool…’ Hemlock, generally it’s usualy the other way around..the more silent you are the more people take you for a very deep & intelligent person. It’s when you open up, people go “What the….?” 😉

  61. xille: burger.
    meri wajah say tumhari aik post pe itnay comments hain, jitney k kabhi tumharay blog pe nahi they
    mommy nai thank you bolna nai sikhaya?
