A Short Post That’ll Make You Happy Because It’s Short

Posted in Weird Tales on January 17, 2011 by mmeeviloverlord

When people are sad, they shop.

When people are sad, they drink.

When people are sad, they binge on food.

When I'm sad, I paint my nails red.

Actually I might do that even when I'm happy, but explaining that would make this post long, and after the disclaimer in the title, I can't let that happen. So, say Yayy!! for red nail paint.

Before I Become a Sociopath

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on January 2, 2011 by mmeeviloverlord

Having regard to the fact that I'm not one yet, and keeping in mind that it's the new year (Yay!), here's my list of Things To Keep In Mind That May Not Seem Awesome But Thanks To It Being My Blog Are Mind-Numbingly and Bone-Jarringly Superawesomamazing!

1) Anger management is good. Very good.

2) Everybody goes through low times – even with the person who you think leads the most perfectly charmed life.

3) Revenge is a dish best served cold was said by a guy who did not have a microwave.

4) Love makes the world go round :) [I don't care if that's cheesy. I like cheesy.]

5) Be happy. Be thankful. Be superawesomely evil.

6) Believe in others. Even in the aliens who may destroy the Earth in a couple of days.

7) Slay your Jabberwocky and do the Futterwacken.

8) Laugh with others and learn to laugh at yourself. Do not attempt the evil laugh if you're not an Evil Overlord otherwise you'll be hung, drawn and quartered by my minions.

9) Read Harry Potter if you haven't already. If you have, read it again. Just like T's friend says – "There are only two types of people – those who love Harry Potter and those who haven't read it yet."

10) If you read my blog, try leaving back a comment. Otherwise, I will hunt you down and torture you in the most painful way possible :)

Happy New Year!

Love!

Granny’s Theories – Episode 1

Posted in Granny's Theories, Silly Tales with tags , , , , on December 28, 2010 by mmeeviloverlord

My grandmom has a lot of theories. Some are okay, others are downright hilarious. Since she’s going to be staying with us for the next few months, I expect to be an audience for at least 50-60 such theories. The ones that interest me more or make me laugh till my sides hurt are going to be featured on my blog, along with rating out of five. So, clap your hands for the very first episode of Granny’s Theories!

No offence, grandmom.

Theory of the Day: Single children need competition in the form of siblings otherwise they turn out to be brats.

Comments a.k.a. Squashing The Theory: This sentence was, fortunately, not directed towards me. It was in the context of a first cousin once removed who is supposed to be a it of a brat. A little background story here – the kid is about 8 or 9 years old and fights with one cousin (out of four). The fights he has are the reason for him being declared a brat. He recently got a brand new baby sister and my grandmom thinks that the competition he’s going to get from her is going to ease him out of his bratty nature. And then she generalized the whole thing by including every single kid living on the face of this planet.

Now, what could be wrong with this theory, I wonder…

a) I’m a single kid. I have three close cousins who are single kids. We were never brats and we aren’t still. Who knows about the future though, so no comments on that :D

b) I used to fight with those aforementioned single cousins. The result – we’re really close today. Even if we don’t talk to each other for ages, when we meet, it’s like we never left.

c) Competition in terms of what? Considering the age difference, the baby sister’s going to look up to him. Even if she doesn’t, where is the competition??

d) Generalizations. Aren’t. Good.

I know that kid much better than my grandmom, and he’s not a brat. If she considers him a brat, she’s never met one (which makes me wanna be bratty :D). Just because you’re a single kid doesn’t mean you’ll turn out bad. Sure, if you enjoy being a single kid, people might consider you crazy, but if not, they’ll consider you crazy anyhow (for a different reason, or perhaps the same).

Theory Rating: ** (Because my grandmom didn’t realize that her two eldest non-bratty grandchildren are both single kids.)

New Title! Whoop-de-doo!!

Posted in Silly Tales with tags , , on December 27, 2010 by mmeeviloverlord

I thought of a new title for my blog. It just came to me yesterday while my dad was teasing me about training to be a bloodsucker.

Yeah, I get my sense of humour from him.

Anyhow. Now, Obscurum Per Obscuris doesn't really fit in for me, though the sub-title is what I wanted the title of one of my books-to-be-if-I-ever-think-of-writing-and-find-people-to-read-them. So, 'A Theory of Uncommon-sense' by yours truly might hit the bookstands in a few decades/centuries (if I ever get the Philosopher's Stone). Please keep an eye out (and some cash ready) for that book, or keep passing this message on from generation to generation. Who knows, if I get the Stone, I think it would be your great-great-great-great-extremely-great grandchildren who'll be reading that book. So, please make me rich whenever it does happen, ok?

So… New blog title! I like it. I don't care if you don't :P

Top Five Reasons Why Voldemort Kicks A$$

Posted in Uncategorized on November 26, 2010 by mmeeviloverlord

I think Voldemort is the ultimate Evil Guy. Even though he died just because his wand backfired on him (WTF!), I’m willing to forgive him for that. So, here are my top five reasons why Voldemort kicks ass:

 

1) He can fly. Yes, he can fly. Or rather, Yes, he can! (Sorry Obama..) The sheer awesomeness of finding out in the last book that OMFGHarry!Voldemortcanfly!! is just far too unbelieveable, astounding, like a sledgehammer to your head and then some! And don’t say it’s a piddly reason for giving someone the title of The Ultimate Evil Overlord. You know how badly you wish you could fly.

2) He started young. While Hitler was playing dress-up and Darth Vader was discovering the world of Barbie, Voldemort had already started hanging rabbits and scaring children to death in caves.

3) He made seven horcruxes. Seven! Have the other Evil Overlords made even a single one? Bet they don’t even know what a horcrux is.

4) He hates Harry and Dumbledore, whom the world loves. It takes evilness and guts to hate people the world loves. Or maybe that’s just my analogy, but then this blog is also mine.

5) The Harry Potter series would have been nothing without him. Stories have been written about children in British boarding schools (R.I.P. Enid Blyton). Stories have been written about children outside British boarding schools. But combine British boarding schools  with Voldemort, and you get a truly heady book that’s completely different and refreshing from the perfect Blytonian world a lot of us grew up in.

Top Five Reasons Why I Dislike TypePad

Posted in Uncategorized on November 26, 2010 by mmeeviloverlord

I don’t like TypePad. I’ve been here for a couple of months now and my TypePad phases have been like:

Happy -> Curious -> Confused -> Irritated -> Seriously Annoyed

I was happy because I was able to export my entire Vox blog. Now I wish Vox had tied up with WordPress. Or even Blogger – I don’t care. So, here are my top five reasons why TypePad sucks:

1) Celebrity Bloggerdom. TypePad is for blogger celebrities. Period. If you’re not a blogebrity, you have no reason to be here. Unless and until your previous host offered to export your entire blog and you took up that offer without even reading up on your new host.

2) It feels too much like a restricted area, even when you’re living inside it. There is an exhaustive list of blogs and no way to search for the topics you might want to read up on apart from those few. And that exhaustive list is comprised of, you know it, blogebrities.

3) The free formats deserve to be abandoned in a forest. On a different continent. Far, far, faaaar away. If you want good formats, you need to get on TypePad Pro, for which you need to cough up anywhere from $9 to $30 per month. My Vox used to give me kickass formats and my blog looked a.m.a.z.i.n.g. Cost – $0.

4) Maybe this was just inherent to Vox, but there was an interactive platform in the shape of ‘Question of the Day’ and ‘Photo of the Day’. And the main page was also glorious for bloggers to interact on various topics. TypePad, I’m sorry, but Vox was just too good.

5) TypePad is to Vox what Batman and Robin is to The Dark Knight. ‘Nuff said.

A Temporary Break

Posted in Religion on November 18, 2010 by mmeeviloverlord

You wouldn't believe how sad I am right now. Really. Okay, I'm not really at my lowest point, but I'm sad. Some respect here please. A couple minutes' silence.

I just came from my last dance class for the next month-and-a-half.

I know that really doesn't seem all Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but maybe you'd understand if you knew me. I LOVE my dance class! There are so many elements about it that I love, that I'm going to miss.

I'm going to miss my instructors. They're the ones who keep us all going. Even when the world goes black owing to the amount of pressure you're putting on your 'core', they stand beside you and tell you to keep breathing, to not lose concentration, to keep smiling. They push you to your extreme and get the best out of you. There was a time when I couldn't do développés (pronounced de-ve-low-pays) without using my hands to support my legs, and now I don't need to do that at all. I've grown as a dancer thanks to my instructors and I'm going to miss them a lot!

I'm going to miss seeing those people twice a week – people I've been with since I started my classes, people whose names I don't remember even though we've been in the same class for three months, people who exchange smiles and feel comfortable with each other knowing they share that same passion for dancing. Maybe I won't really miss them much, but a little, yes, I will.

I'll miss doing those workouts, the chaînés (pronounced shay-nays), those horrible pirouettes – every single things. The pas, the routine – the whole frickin' class – I'm going to miss it!

Here's to you, dance class, I'm going to miss you so much :(
