Angel on Shopping

Shoppers never stop

No.. this is not another Confession of a Shopaholic kind of read. To begin with, I do not consider my self a shopaholic. Uhh. Err wait.. Does shopping every weekend make me a shopaholic? .. Sigh!!! Gone are the days when I used to shop every weekend!! Before u think I am a rich spoilt brat… I never really splurge on expensive stuff.  Few.. little things work out the best for me J. Different people unwind themselves in different ways. Some like to trek, some play music, some like to write.. I feel that shopping too can be an effective therapy.

Controlling your self from shopping is a lot like going on a diet. You start with resistance.  If it works, you eat/shop in small quantities without hurting your body/pocket. If the urge is uncontrollable.. SPAT!! Your scales/bills do not look so pretty.

I ran towards the shirt and pounced on it before any one else could spot it. Aaaah!!! VICTORY!!!

With this mall culture shaping up so speedily, it has become inevitable to land up at one of them during offs. The beauty of malls is that it make you buy things you don’t need. As soon as I set my first step in the mall, the spirit of shopping engulfs me. I immediately scan for my favorite shops, check for SALE tags, and prioritize them based on time and shopping needs.

I categorize the shops as follows:

  • Have to go shops: These are my favorite shops. I religiously visit them every time I enter a mall. Gadget counters, clothes, shoes, and jewelry counters belong to this category.
  • I do not mind peeping in shops: I visit these shops based on my mood. Mobile stores, grocery shops, books counters, and cosmetic counters.
  • I can skip shops: These are the shops can easily pass because either they are too boring or they can hurt my pocket badly. Saris, dress materials, and foreign brands.

Sprees

I had not shopped on a GRAND scale since quite some time. I was trying to save for an important reason. Some time back I came to know that the reason was not applicable anymore. I was happy because I knew that now I could go and shop until my…my heels broke… my arms started to ache with the weight of shopping bags etc. Ok! Enough of melodrama.

Any ways, I went to one of the malls last weekend and found myself digging clothes from a heap of so-called “fresh stock”. As I looked at the last piece of the short white linen shirt, my eyes start to gleam, I grinned from ear to ear, and my heart started to race. I ran towards the shirt and pounced on it before any one else could spot it. Aaaah!!! VICTORY!!! I held it close to my heart. My eyes filled with tears as I enjoyed that exhilarant moment.  I closed my eyes and thanked Almighty for finally blessing me.

It indeed is a high to buy those red heels you have been waiting to wear with your new red top, the latest shade of pink lip color that will make you pose like models who promote it, that little black dress on sale (a must have as declared by the fashion gurus)..Seems so tangible. The list is endless, so is the ecstasy. Phew!!

I rarely find girls who do not like to shop and men who do. It is a wonderful experience to shop with a man who likes it.

I often think that if at all I do the mistake of going to malls during a weekend, I will carry a picnic basket, some magazines, or even my laptop so that I can pass time as I stand in the queue in front of the trial room. Such a commotion during weekends is a big turn off.  However, for people like me who work from 9- (till the time bosses want us to); we really do not have much of a choice. Weekends are the only time we can shop. So be it SALE season or FRESH stock. God save us from the stampede!!.

I rarely find girls who do not like to shop and men who do. It is a wonderful experience to shop with a man who likes it. Such people do not get bored, do not nag you to hurry and love to explore. If you get lucky, they even pay for you wink! wink!!!

I am off to flaunt my latest shopping to my pals and I promise I am not thinking about the bill. If shopping is sin, I am the devil ;)

Love … for Life

Angel has written a piece like this one after a very long time. This one is a dedication to the fantasy of most of the women (I am not the woman, I am Vinni). To be pampered, loved, surprised and be treated like a princess. The man here has no name and no face. Though she really hopes that there exists one..

So people, share with angel something that you long for, something you have experienced, or dreamt about. You never know, THE person might read it and get the point ;)

Love for Life?

Make my morning with those flower so wild,
Take me in your arms and brush away my hair
The sun on my face with half open eyes
You gaze my face and I feel shy.

Those lazy noon with the meal you made,
Honey glazed bread and the chocolate cake
A kiss on the cheek with mouthful of food,
Never experienced a time that was just so good

As the evening draws closer, the sun is ready to set,
That dance so slow on the ground so wet.
My bare feet love the touch of the ground.
The wind becomes cooler as the sky gets dark
I am glad to have the love of my life around

The smile in your eyes and the dreams in your heart.
I will wait for the moment when we make THE start.
But for that honey, you gotta….
Write me a poem, sing me a song
Make a promise never to be gone..

Catches, Condoms and Commitment

Argument

A for apple… B for ball… C for…cat… also Commitment… Catches… Condoms… So the more I have known the human race, the more these words have intrigued me. I know I have a long way to go… but what the heck! I don’t mind sharing what I have learnt so far. 

Catches - Makes men run towards them. Especially if there’s a cricket match between India and Pak and an easy catch is missed. We might lose the match and it means a HELL lot to the entire nation!! It makes the adrenaline rush to all the parts of the body.
A hot babe at the work place, the doll in your coll, or just the next door neighbour. If she is in your arms, that’s one hell of a catch!

Vinni:

  • If it itches, we scratch the catch. Live with it. 
  • When the live cricket matches in on, we prefer to be left untouched and undisturbed. Would really appreciate if you scratch our backs once in while we adjust our butts in the right place. 
  • We still think Mallika Sherawat is a good catch and she has a better bust than you. Accept it, or get implants.

Condoms - Someone I know says that condoms are the best invention ever! Well said my friend. A MUST have for all the SAFE reasons. “Flavours” and “types”, these terms seem relevant once you start using it.
Your database about sex, condoms and positions gets updated frequently. You become a member of the elite group “WE DO IT”. You take a peek at the row of condoms kept in the top shelf of a famous store. The Condom ads don’t embarrass you anymore. You smile to yourself after seeing the ad of particular brand, and think, “I know it’s not that good”.
For all the pleasure which has no measure.

Vinni: 

  • We don’t like to use condoms, as a contraceptive. If you think we have AIDS, find another mate.
  • No, we don’t like the condom ringtone. (www.condomcondom.org)
  • Flavoured condoms? Curse the guy who never takes a bath. 
  • We do fantasize about porn actresses.
     

Commitment - This one is the most controversial words ever. If you stick to it, you might get hurt. If you don’t, then too you can land yourself in trouble. What makes people get into a commitment?
An assurance. ?
The idea of being with one person?
Just love?
What makes people run away from commitment?
I guess the same.

I guess people miss out on a very important factor called assurance. Sometime assurance acts as first level to commitment. A very dicey stage. If people can handle it, there is nothing better than that.
I feel most of us are not able to differentiate between an assurance and a commitment. According to me, assurance plays a vital role. Sometimes it becomes more important than commitment. It can be a small straw that can help the ant sail through the stream of water.

Most of the people I meet are usually scared or shy of commitment. They have given me the most logical, and at the same time, the weirdest reasons.
“So, I like this girl since childhood but not sure if she is the one.”!!
“It’s too early to decide” 
“I am just a 30 year old woman… I can’t commit”
“I love you a lot but my alter ego does not allow me to commit”!  I won’t be surprised if I actually hear this one someday.

I have also met girls, who kept bumping in to guys who wanted to commit the first time they met. Give the poor soul some space to breathe!!!
I have been through the situation where I did not want to commit. Not because I was scared of it, but because I was not ready for it. I guess I needed my space. Once that phase (really short) passed, I was back to be where I am most comfortable, being committed. (That does not mean I am a relationship addict) Anyways, for me, what was a short span of time is actually how some people live a large part of their life.
I am slightly biased towards people who can commit, are loyal and dedicated in a relationship. 

Vinni:

  • We’d rather have the dog committed to us, it doesn’t nag or shop.
  • We are also committed to oogling at the chick showing her hot cleave.
  • For a change, we’d like to be asked out by a girl for a change. Yeah, we suck. But only the good things.

Vinni certainly made HIS point!! I am really keen to read what the rest of you have to say about this. So go on, talk about the catch you missed or did not. Your physic about commitment. I am sure you have a lot to speak about condoms. :D
