~::~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 🙄

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 😀 do u think I stopped?? Naaahhh 😛 more the impetus to trouble them 😈

 

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 😈

 

 

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 😛 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 😛 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 😈 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 😛 hell!! Who cares… keeps me occupied and gives my horns a reason to shine bright red 😈 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 😀 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 😀

~::~ 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 😛

This would be 1 stone- 2 mangoes 😛 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 😛 ) 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 😀
  • 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 😛 preferably studies related. You’re sure to be dozing within 10—15 mins 😀

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….

That’s it from Megzone for now..

/Disclamer – this is just a fun post.. there are no intentions of hurting anybody’s sentiments..

Please do take it in the right zest… 🙂 /

Typo Terrors…!!

Imagine you wanted to call someone as “Ma Devi” and ended up typing “MuDevi”… 😳

And you realize only after you get the reaction from the other side…

Especially in this age of touch-phones, iphones, and inbuilt spellcheckers…  the blunders that can be committed are innumerable and infinite…

Now I completely agree with mouli’s one liner that says “Ecstasy and guilt follow one after the other.. Only I would like to make it Ecstasy and Embarrassment… oh welll.. In the ecstasy of pulling someone’s leg you write something.. only to later be embarrassed at what the word/sentence went out at…

Sigh..!!! yeaaa.. That’s what typos do..

Not just TouchPhones even mails/OCS or any means of communication for that matter…

So here are some real-life incidents that made the writer (not me you sillies… but those who wrote them) blush a deep beetroot red with embarrassment..

~~~~~

Movie Quotes and Corporate World..!!!

Famous Quotes and Corporate World

I was searching for some inspiration to blog something sensible…

Err.. obviously afterall the insane in me wants to take a rest once in while 😉

so how exactly I came about hunting for quotes you may wonder.. well.. it so happened that I was finding for some nice quotes to go on my Office Communicator.. something fataaakk.. dhadakebaaz.. and I remembered the PS: I love You quote : Shoot for the moon, if you miss you shall hit the stars

err…somefing like that… so now I was on a journey to find a suitable quote for my Office Communicator.. and I must say I came across some very relevant and superb quotes…

and that’s when this brainwave strikes me..

why not try to relate the movie quotes with oour very own corporate world..

we spend almost 12-14 hours out of the house… of which atleas 8-9 are spent in the office in our cubicles

and don’t we meet some real whackos in real life too 😉

so there.. I embarked on a journey collecting quotes that I found interesting and started classifying them into charactors we come across in office 😛

errr… aint this another dose ur insanity..??

hell..!! it is who cares.. its makes for an interesting read that’s what matters 😈
