Are you a naturally born female?
That questioned stared me in my face and I stared back at it, with the words WTF multiplying like crazy in my head, unable to comprehend the deeper meaning it withheld. I ran across this question in the application form for a leading beauty pageant. Of course I wasn’t applying for it idiot; it was a part of my job. Then I had the Big O moment, I mean the Big OH moment and the profound reasoning behind this question dawned upon me.
So, I will ask you women out there, Are you a naturally born female? The choices are:
c) Come and find out.
d) Go Fuck yourself.
I can predict a lot of As and Ds. Moving on, so we were making pitch for this contest so we had to come up with a themes and stuff and so on. A group of us bashed our head together for like 3 hours and yet could not agree upon a theme. So many ideas were floated like, “Be the One”, “You are more beautiful than you think, “You will not know unless you try”, “Don’t you think you are better”, “Be the Queen” and so on. Hold on while I barf and get back.
Yes yes I feel so proud of myself for coming up with some of the gems like that. Any way we decided to work on different parts of the whole package and then put it all together to come up with the theme. I got the best part. Listen to this, I got to spend the whole day, searching online for games that let you dress up women. No wait that’s not it. Then I got to spend hours dressing and undressing women till I found the most suitable games and then record a demo of them. Could life be any better? Eww! Wait, that was sarcasm you moron. I don’t enjoy such games much. I am sure there are men who derive pleasure from such umm activities but I am not one of them. Like they say it’s nothing like the real deal. Its like saying since I enjoy killing people in real life I will have fun playing GTA3. Ok that could be true but umm never mind.
So we put the whole presentation together. I got to add music to those dressing/undressing videos that I made. They let me choose my own music. Muhahahaha. I ended up using the following.
1) Cake : Short Skirt Long Jacket
2) Marilyn Manson : Beautiful People
3) Edwyn Collins : Girl Like You
4) Jet : Are you gonna be my girl
Very appropriate and very fitting (no pun intended). Ok even if intended what can you do about it huh? Any way so we put all our efforts together and sent it for approval but they weren’t happy with the themes so they came up with a fresh and original theme ‘You can be the one”. Hmm now why couldn’t we think of it? And where did I hear this before? Gah! Can’t remember, must be getting old.
Oh and the girl-who-sits-next-to-me has quit so she will from now on be know as the girl-who-used-to-sit-next-to-me. Lil Nat’s birthday was celebrated in office and I got to eat the cake from Merwan’s and the she bought us ice cream from Gokul’s. I got the mango flavor. Yum. And she didn’t rip the head of the Wabbit yet, it sits in her living room. People have living rooms? I have one room. It’s my drawing/ dining/ bed/ entertaining/ gaming/ reading/ thinking/ changing/ phoning/ you-know-what-else room. Since I spend so much of my life in there I guess I can call it a living room too.
