~::~Things to do when you’re super bored ~::~

Off late megzy has been super bored to death… Since she stopped writing, playing Farmville and has taken up twitter as her latest hobby ;)

Yep, in the recent past I have been tweeting big time enjoying it too… albeit some people are complaining but then who cares…

And at one such time a buddy commented on my Tweet+FB post that he would block me if I continue at this rate… and so well that’s where this idea was born ;)

Naa Naa m not giving him any credit cos well the idea was mine but the motivation to come up with this list was probably his so called threat :roll:

Anyway – roll up your sleeves and if you are someone who has a penchant for troubling ppl this list might help you too ;)
Megzy’s guide to top 5 innovative things to do when you are super bored

 

05> Post your fave songs/videos on FB… Easiest way to while your time… Especially if you are a music freak like me, this one can keep you occupied and your friend list buggers troubled ;) I have had days when I have posted songs back to back and people have either posted my on wall or sent me a Pvt msg or pinged me asking me to stop :D do u think I stopped?? Naaahhh :P more the impetus to trouble them :twisted:

 

04> Play FB games – when you are super bored on a weekend with nothing else to do… this is THE best time pass to do. No I don’t mean Farmville, cityville, Fishville or any other VIL(L)E games or mafia wars or any other godforsaken Zynga or App game.. I mean stupid games like what’s your vampire name… What’s your Japanese name… What’s your guardian angel name…?  There was a time when I would flood everyone’s walls with my daily Horoscope updates… Naa Naa not just the One FB horoscope app but all astrology, numerology, fortune cookies apps and that includes my psychic friends – Angela, Alicia, Christina, Maria, Alchemist and even Paul the octopus.. The more people would get pissed off and scrap my walls with @#$%^$%#$ the more motivated I was to trouble them :twisted:

 

 

03>  Pick up a trending hash tag on twitter and make sure you have simultaneous posts on FB so that  audience at both places are troubled :P You will either make new insane friends who like your idea or you might get msgs back from peeps bombarding you… In either case you are then occupied with something to do :mrgreen: I did that some days back.. There was this trending hash tag  -  #eathollywood and I literally ate Hollywood for breakkie, lunchy and dinns and even digested it well :P from actors to 1950s movies I dint leave a single stone unturned and came up with the most innovative Food+movie name combos that I cud think of.. It went on to such an extent that twitter threw me an error saying I have finished my quota of tweets for the day :mrgreen: gaahh.. who cares… I slept off woke up in the morning and began tweeting again :twisted: well, it kept me occupied for 2-3 days. Similar thing happened with #weirdindianpronunciations that was trending, where Tonmoy the Dude joined me in coming up with weird Indian pronunciations. But he kinda got bored within a few moments :mrgreen:

 

02> Post a controversial status msg. M sure you would end up with so many comments and likes that it can keep you occupied for some time. Alternatively you could put up some stupid/humorous/insane pic/post and tag people… Poor are those souls who actually manage to like my status/pic/post… cos most of them are later bombarded with innumerable comment updates and even emails for them :P hell!! Who cares… keeps me occupied and gives my horns a reason to shine bright red :twisted: Else Post on a friend’s wall esp. someone with whom you share quite a few mutual friends. Or have any of them post on your wall… and keep continuing the thread as if that’s a chat page :D it then becomes a case of “is post ka anth nahi” (there’s no end to this post) :mrgreen:

 

01> Pick any Hindi/eng songs or a song in any other language you’re comfortable with and come up with parodies on them. Post them on your Twitter + FB and trouble people. I did that by creating a new hash tag #revampedtechnotunes I ended up making at least 5-10tweets minimum in a day to that particular hash tag… all the songs were reworded to suit the social networking sites and were posted on both FB and Twitter.. Well… result- some buddies like sree, fatin and coupla more joined in on the fun in the comments section… the habit took over so badly that I started parodying songs left right and centre, in even the most mundane of communications/conversations I can weave songs in a jiffy more so if I am chatting with people..Though some commented with their swears.. twitter gave me more followers and new friends ;) I do what I want to do… for anyone who has a problem… well its their probbie not mine :mrgreen:

 

 

Phew!!! That’s my list of creative ideas to trouble others when you are super bored. :mrgreen:

If you can come up with any more creative ideas please do NOT hesitate to enumerate them in the comment section :D

A beautiful lass came, he hired

She arranged all his files

In haphazard huge piles

Irritated, he screamed “you’re fired”

~::~ 3 Magicians ~::~

~::~ 3 Magicians ~::~

Tom Thimble and Thory

Three Magicians gory

Years on end, they brew

Til Tom’s grey beard grew

Adding powders and mice

Smelling bad rarely nice

Scorpion legs they add

Draught turns frothy and bad

A few spiders too

Pot hissed and blew

Snake skins turn it pink

Drop of owl tears make it shrink

Thory says – Cat furs to make it right

Tom threw his shoe, added their plight

It only made it dark n murky

Bubbling and hissing yucky

These signs they see not

3 Magicians concocting broth

Potion starts to gurgle

Turn green and bubble

Pot melts and bursts apart

Shattering the shed to shards

Green and slimy Tom Thimble and Thory

3 so called magicians, this is their story

~::~ HomeCine ~::~

Off late I seem to be giving a lot of home remedies to a lot of friends..

Over sms, calls, chats and Facebook at large.. so I thought why not jot them down in a post :P

This would be 1 stone- 2 mangoes :P one my post count increases and it’s a breather from my usual poems that some peeps are bored of and 2>> everyone reading it might benefit from it..

Pimple Outburst  –

No one likes to wake up in the morning to see that RED spot on ur face which not only makes ur face seem like moon-ic craters but also takes a toll on ur mental health. Most women would dread such days. Pimples are not only bad-looking but they also are sometimes painful.

The age old grandma remedy of early-morning-without-brushing saliva may be termed as “gross” by many and peeps would rather prefer tolerating the pimple than use their saliva… So here are some handy tips…

  • Mix Sandalwood powder with a little rose water and apply on the affected areas. This would reduce the redness/soreness/outburst and regular application also diminishes the pimple and its scars.
  • Choona (crude lime for non-hindi-ites and Calcium Carbonate for the geeks :P ) is effective on pimple outbursts too. It may burn a bit but it dries out the pimple pretty soon.
  • Avoid touching your face as much as possible. Your hands are the most unhygienic and germilicious part of your body. So by wiping/touching your face you are only passing the germs from hands to face.
  • Aloe Vera gel again is a very handy and easily available and effective for all skin related ailments. Alternatively if Aloe Vera is not available one can always get some Neem leaves- paste them and apply. The most effective medicinal plant/tree ever discovered :)

Cold/Cough

One of the most common ailment and people who are allergic to pollens suffer almost all year round :)

So people who are tired or choose not to get drunk with the Alcoholic nature of cough syrups can try these following simple home rememdies

  • Easiest and first thing is steam and gargling.. Steam would clear the nasal pipe and gargling would help the throat. Steam should preferably be with plain water vicks or any other such balms are a strict no no.. incase u do want to add something to the water u can try a few drops of Eucalyptus oil. Gargle should be preferably 2-3 times a day with salt and/or turmeric.
  • Drink hot (read as hot as u can intake) milk with turmeric and a pinch of pepper powder.
  • Mom always says – feed the cold, starve the fever. And I do believe in it.. During cold your immunity is very less so u shud regularly have hot drinks(read tea, coffee, soups) and hot food. Preferably something less spicy and oily. Include Ginger tea as one of those drinks and you are sure to hit the relief button soon :D
  • For cough, melt jaggery in a pot add some ginger juice/ dry ginger (saunt) and bring it a boil and reduce then take that as syrup. It is sure to provide you relief.
  • Alternatively you can heat lemon juice, honey and a little pepper powder. Mix them heat the mixture till warm and consumable and gulp it. That would provide some relief to your throat too.

Good Sleep

A friend of mine was cribbing on FB saying he was hardly getting sleep. 3-4 hrs in a day is spent travelling for him and even if he sleeps at 11-12 he seems to be up by 1.30-2 and isn’t able to complete his sleep..

I think it’s a case of stressed life.. His mind is hyperactive and on the move all day and hence the lack of sleep at night. For a sound baby-like sleep the following are my suggestions

  • Take bath in hot/warm water before retiring to bed, the warmth of the water would de-stress all muscles and joints and soothe the body. Thereby making it ready for a nap :)
  • Drink a glass of nice warm milk this should help you sleep well.
  • Don’t do any mind-involving work before sleeping, just relax or meditate if you can.
  • For those who hate reading pick up a book :P preferably studies related. You’re sure to be dozing within 10—15 mins :D

I hope these tips helped :)

In case you are troubled with anything please do let me know :)

I definitely don’t mind coming up with another post with all the remedies that I can help you with….

~::~ Ad-Diction ~::~

After sms lingo it’s time for some ad-lingo in our day to life….

Well I do have plans of making a Movie special too but first let’s get on with the Ads version of the same…

In this virtual world where we are connected with our friends families and peers more through status updates/comments/wall posts than with sms and calls or even worse physical meetings.. Our language and lingo has gone through multiple changes…

I guess most of you read Sree’s (http://sreeramshenoy.wordpress.com/2010/08/29/in-briefsituations-and-abbreviations/ ) abbreviation/SMS lingo posts :D and in a confy chat with him sprung this idea.. Yep haven’t we used them once in a while atleast.. Where instead of saying a whole line/sentence we end up mentioning a product/ad where the slogan was similar.. For e.g. If I were to tease Sree saying “after marriage you will keep following Su all around naa” he is most likely to retort “Wat do you think I am Hutch kyaa?? I don’t have any other work eh??”

Why hutch?? Well their network follows you everywhere :P

So carrying on from SMS lingo, here are some ad slogans which we or atleast I have seen being used in our usual day to day life..

Nike-just do it

E.g.-  a typical advice from  Sree to MJ wud be like this :P

“Why are you worried about wat she thinks maaannn.. NIKE dude..”

Adidas- impossible is nothing

E.g. – “boss don’t think I can deliver this by today EOD”

Boss-  why get so hyped up.. chill remember ADIDAS..

CCD -  a lot can happen over a cup of coffee

E.g. – lets meet for coffee I believe CCD

Cadbury – kuch meetha ho jaaye

E.g.-  a typical shaadi pakka ho gayi news

Dude you’re engaged, Cadbury

LG- Life’s Good

E.g.-  Howdy doing buddy

LG maaannn…

Nokia – Connecting people

E.g.- often people ask me whats your work like half the time I have the mind to tell them “I’m NOKIA

Sigh!!! But I end up telling them I am a JBA in KM and my work involves blah blah blah…

Energizer Batteries -  Goes on and on and on

E.g. -  when it comes to bakwas Sree is Energizer battery :P

Mentos- Dimag ki batti jala de

E.g.- err nai samja.. Mentos kha Mentos :P

Philips- let’s make things better

E.g. – yaar panga ho gaya yaar…  chodna why worry Philips karte hai

Pepsi- Dil mange more

E.g..- I am not surprised why Sree and Nive always say “when it comes to love it’s always Pepsi”

And as far as using these lingos in real life conversation goes, who cares McDonalds(I’m loving it) nonetheless

Note – the conversations and examples are inspired by real life characters and situations for a better understanding of their relevance.(ish… did I just speak jargon here :roll: )

If you have used any other AD lingos in your daily life do lemme know..

Thats it from Megzone for now…
