Blog quotes

Some time later I had a 'Wet Dream'. I must mention that it was an Irish cream and vodka cocktail, before you all start getting notions, not fit to be put down here. It tasted great!
-Fairy at Finntimes

This post isn't over. Not by a long shot.
-Dee (Praveen)

Now there are so many things wrong with the last bit of that last sentence, I canÂ’t even begin.
-Gabby

Some bonus stuff

Economics for girls

Girls donÂ’t get it. They donÂ’t understand money.

They excel at the micro level. I mean, they can tell you that the milk Kroger is cheaper than the milk Walmart. They fail to understand that the drive from Walmart to Kroger is more expensive than the difference between the prices at these two stores. (Excluding, depreciation, cost of the time, other unnecessary stuff that we end up buying at Kroger).

Have you ever checked your girlfriends purse? A girls purse is a simplified version of the girl herself. Don’t expect to see credit cards, money and driving license. They come last. Expect to see the unexpected. It could be a tampon or a bus ticket that she bought last year to her moms place. No, don’t even dare to clean it and organize it. According to her, its already organized. Don’t expect the money to be logically filed. 500 rupee note is followed by 5 rupee note is followed by 20 rupee note followed by 100 rupee note followed by 5 rupee note.

When was the last time a girl discussed her mutual funds, real estate investments and her retirement benefit plans with you? Never. When was the last time your mom/wife complained to you about the ever increasing prices of the commodities? Daily.

My mom once remarked that Vajpayee is fat. My aunt once remarked that Bill Clinton looks good and Nelson Mandela wears ridiculous shirts. That’s how much don’t women get it.

If Jennifer Lopez is telling you that that her love don’t cost a thing, don’t take it literally and fall in love with her. Its just that she doesn’t understand how much it costs.

So, to make this world a better place, Smiley’s Social services department came up with a series of articles that can be digested even by dodos. Each article is $1.99. But, if you buy today, its just 99Cents. Not only that, you will also get a free application for ordering the next article.

Economics for dummies girls.

What is money?
What is a bank?
What is saving?
What is spending?
What is tax?

Are Your Kids Blogging?
It's a term that many parent's may never have heard of, blogging. By definition, a blog is a chronological publication of personal thoughts and web links.

anon: That was the fastestest comment I ever received. But I didnt get you. Could you come again?

Earth Monkey said...

Smiley, anon is advertizing on your comments box. You must be rich or something :)))

Anyway, for all the comments you made bout chicksess being dumm und stubido you're in running for a good spanking followed by some pretty rough sex. And you'll get all of this by this Friday evening by my estimates.

Of course I could be wrong like I am so often :))

Ash said...

Keep in mind, that we have the same irrationality regarding money, when we buy the men in our life expensive little toys !

GratisGab said...

# of times a Tylenol in my purse has saved a colleague's day = 50
# of times moisturizer fished from the depths of my purse has gotten rid of "white patches" (aka dry patches due to shaving and not moisturizing) on Mr.Gabby's jaws = 100s
# of times a tube of crazy glue/mint/deo has elicited a heartfelt thank you from a friend = 1000s

And # of times a $20 bill placed RIGHT next to a $10 bill neatly bound in a money clip has saved the day (ANYBODY'S day) = 0

What pays?

:-) said...

Earth Dude: aaahh the joy of spam. Anon made me feel as if I have a popular blog. Mmmm..I love spam.

Spanking and rought sex? (Drool). Hmmm..now that explains what happened to me at the movie theatre yesterday night.

Minnie: You (as in You?!!!) are buying expensive toys? Tch tch. I am so used to guys emptying their wallets over silly gifts (read: functionally useless) to their girl friends.

:-) said...

Gabby: You are la femme Gabbita. You carry moisturizer in your purse and some logic in your head. Thats a deadly combination.

Now, please stop me from falling in love with you.

As a matter of fact, I agree with you. My girlfriend's/mom's hanky saved my life several times before.

But the point here is that they dont understand economics. :-)

GratisGab said...

Oh they do alright. Just not the male version of it. No we don't amuse ourselves with chats on mutual funds and 401K plans but how else can we let you all feel useful? It's not like you leave us a lot of options you know.

And as for stopping you from falling in love (Again. Happens a lot in your comment box doesn't it?) Why bother? Inevitable. And no, no guilt here. What's that they say about sweet suffering..? ;)

:-) said...

Gee..Hmmm...what do I reply now.
*scratching head*
*hit back with more examples of women mishandling finances or
hit back with more provocative stuff like women are dumb*

*ok, let me use truth by assertion*

Yeah..Gabby..thanks for making us lot feel important by letting us handle car insurance policies, cell phone talk plans, 401k plans, avoiding tax plans etc.

But my point is women dont understand economics.

*ha! I am so smart*

Love, yeah, love..I know its inevitable..but is there something we can do here?

Twilight Fairy said...

you want some education on real estate and investments? you can talk to me abt how to economise your daily expenditure.. the fact that females actually *dont* run out of things to talk about and hence dont resort to mundane investment lectures, doesnt mean that they dont *know* anything abt the same..
want a free sample of my classes? They cost you only 10 cents each and a free trip to the moon is also ensured via the kick that you get along with it..

:-) said...

Wooowww....a trip to the moon sounds promising. The orange moon? And we are gonna dine and dance all night and all day? Wooooooow.
