Looks matter?

I was talking to a girl some weeks back on a chat room where the conversation headed to our relationship statuses and I am committed and I don’t really remember what her status was but one thing that she asked thereafter, startled me. She asked me, ”How does your girlfriend look?”. Frankly speaking this is a very common question and most asked when you tell someone you’re committed but I don’t understand why. Why does it matter how a person looks? Would you only like people who are pretty/handsome and cute and not care about how they are as a person and how they would treat you and how you both would connect (or not) ? Are these things totally immaterial against how HOT the person is? Also here I would like to mention how HOT as an expression sounds totally vulgar as against PRETTY.
This also raises the question about love at first SIGHT, is it possible? Is it realistic? Just by looking at the person for the FIRST time are you able to judge how a person would be? I certainly think this isn’t possible. You cannot know a person completely even if you spend your life with them and here you’re talking how you LOVE a person just by looking at them for the very FIRST time. So stupid!
Although I do agree that all of us who claim that we don’t care about the looks of either ourselves or people we like/love are not totally saying the truth. We all care about it but would never agree that we do. We all have our phases of how we think we’re not pretty/handsome/cute/*other synonyms here* and those who don’t are either lying or are blondes. (Yes I don’t like blondes much!)
Also isn’t it possible that one person may not be cute in your view but might just be the cutest person alive in others’ view after all you know what they say, “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”
That’s all I have to say.
Until the next thought in my head, Ciao.
Oh as always, comments are appreciated.

10 Funny Youtube Videos

I was thinking of changing the content type of this blog and give it a different turn.
We all use youtube for various reasons.Some for looking at sports videos,some for checking out music videos,some for other fantasies which require them to click a certain "Proof birth date" button.
I decided to make a Funny youtube videos list.These are funny in my view and if you have suggestions for other videos then add them to comments.Also remember these are not in a particular order of preference or funniness but just in the order I came across them.
Enjoy :D

1.This is part of the talent contest in Britain and has Simon Cowell(American Idol judge) among the notable judges.This video is a must see.It is where a person tries to fit himself into a balloon.Yeah into a ballon.I give it 3.5/5

2.I would like to mention that this video does look fake and that they are not real incidents but stunts.Nonetheless its worth the watch.I am also happy that am not as bad as these people are and also that they aren't related to me to cause any embarrassment. My rating 4/5.

3.These extra charged men try to show they are tough and take on various objects to emphasize on their physical appeal.My rating 4/5.Must see,really.

4.This is very adorably cute and would definitely crack you up.Its not always the video that is funny but the laugh by others as well.I love this one.If this can't make you smile or laugh then nothing can!My rating 4.5/5.

5.I saw this on Ellen Degerenes Show and found it fantastically funny and absurd.The video shows how a couple dance on "Baby got Back" on their wedding.Yes you heard me right.ON THEIR WEDDING!Also,the couple dance really well and the girl dances with the dress which is even more commendable.I would love to see it happen in real life.My rating 4/5.

6.Remember me saying how other peoples' laugh makes the videos funny too?(If you don't then go back to point no 4 and read again,you're not paying much attention by the way!)This video is terribly funny, maybe more than the baby video.Notice how the guy in the middle has such a funny,nasal laugh.After a few minutes it does get stale but enjoy it till that time.My rating 4.5/5 HAHAHAHA!

7.I think everyone's heard the crazy frog song.I used to find it so very annoying and still do and was shocked when this song was on No1 in the UK Billboard Charts(yeah it was *sighs*).These two brothers in the video lip sync the song and dance on it.Yeah on this annoying song.My rating 3.5/5.

8.How about a change from humans to animals,eh?This is a really funny video of cats.I saw this right after HOW TO WASH A CAT video.LOL.This has many MANY clippings of funny cat incidents.Watch out for how the cat tries to jump and eat the table tennis ball.LOL.My rating 4/5.

9.We have sibling rivalries with our brothers and sisters,right?Yeah we do.This shows how animals have rivalries too.Continuing with the animal videos,this features the other favourite pet,THE CANINE.THE DOG.It has very funny clippings too and the background song makes it a joy to watch.My rating 3.5/5(Dogs aren't my favourite pets you see.)

10.I received this video some weeks back from a friend.Thanks Surabhi.Its a really funny flash clip of how the world is going to be in a few years or maybe by 2050!The commentary in the video is awesome.Turn on your speakers for this.ITS A MUST SEE!! My rating 5/5.Yeah I know I should have put this video in the starting but this did build your excitement,didn't it?Yes it did.Enjoy.

Thats all for now.My next project is funny advertisements.Look out for that too.
Until then Adios and keep laughing :D

Weddings - A yawner

"I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury."
-Groucho Marx

“My husband and I divorced over religious differences. He thought he was God, and I didn't.” -Unknown

I went to a wedding last week.It had been ages since I had been to a wedding, be it for a known relative or any random person getting into this mess which he might be in for the rest of his/her life.
It was my cousin's wedding,who am not so close to anyway but I could not find a way to miss the wedding as my exams were over and I had nothing major(or minor but thats a different story titled "My sucky life") to do to get away.The marriage date was fixed a few hours before the marriage(Yes you heard me right.A few hours!)Well you see my family and people close to my family(especially mom's side) have people who believe in the 18th century traditions of janam patri and other wedding rituals which are annoying to say the least and the priest thought mentioning a date for tomorrow would be a good idea and as it turns out it was implemented.Then started the frenzy of inviting people via phone, ordering for food, looking for banquet hall, buying clothes and other 200million things to be done.Believe it or not,but the groom got his wedding dress only around 6 for the 8pm wedding!
Although everything went fine with the decorations and food and the dress but I don't think holding a wedding on such short notice is a good idea.Continuing with the events of the wedding,we reached when the baraat was going towards the banquet hall.
I actually like the baraats and I guess I had danced in my cousin's marriage too but this time I didn't feel like.I was actually thinking how much money goes into weddings and post wedding functions and even pre wedding functions.
After an unbearable 45-50minute wait for the baraat to enter the banquet hall,which I endured by messaging,it finally entered the premesis.You know who gets the most bored at this time of the proceedings?The groom.All he's doing is either sitting on the horse and looking at how everyone is dancing or sitting in the recent methods of development in the wedding industry,a chariot.Even then he's sitting and looking,although more comfortably as compared to on a horse.
As we went inside the wedding hall,the waiters wearing neat dresses are standing with yummy looking food,which I hungrily gulped down and my stomach seemed to be breathing after that and got selfish for more and I really like my stomach I can't see it wanting more and not getting it so I satisfied it some more.
As the marriage ceremonies continued I kept thinking how bored the bride and the groom would be.Doing nothing but sitting there and giving fake smiles and posing for pictures and accepting money packets,lets keep money packets out of the boring zone.

The best part about marriages?THE BUFFET!You can eat as much as you can and its very rare that I find food at marriages being horribly boring and tasteless.
This was my experience of a recent wedding as I didn't stay for the pheras.
Oh another startling thing would be how many people turned up for the wedding despite the short notice and as per my mom these were just the close relatives.As per my estimate there were 200 people and not less.Apparently,mom's aunty's daughter is a close relative as per my family!!
Comments would be appreciated.Thanks for reading :D
