Crazy Lady Sneaks into University, Scares Students.

Wow, feels like AGES since I updated!

Life's slow here man.
Y'know...too much and too little happening all at the same time!


Well I was at the library the other day (yes, doing WORK.. and NO I wasn't ogling at the hot-studious types...much.), when Hanita and I ran into some technical difficulties involving a thumb drive..specifically,we didn't have one to save our work.

So I, being the pushy irritant that I am, accosted ANOTHER poor man and demanded that this time, he lend me his thumb drive.
The guy said "But I'm getting late for my presentation...."

Now I couldn't very well tie him to the desk and FORCE him to hand over the thumbdrive (or could I? Hmm......)
And well, you know how tender hearted I get towards aesthetically-pleasing ( Ok, fine..'HOT') men (whaaat? I turn into putty!). So I looked into his cow brown eyes and saw that he really did want to lend it to me, but he just couldn't at that time ( or maybe I just scared the pants off him. But hey.. I'm a romantic. )

So I let him scuttle off.


Anyhoo, I got my comeuppance.
It started pouring outside by the time Hanita and I were done with our work. So in an effort to preserve what was left of a good hair day and a dry jeans day, I rolled up my jeans upto my knees and put a plastic bag over my head.

Yes, in retrospect I do realise how odd (I know 'odd' wasn't the word you had in mind, I'm onto you, you monkeys) I must've looked.


You know it's funny, when, at the EXACT moment you look like IDIOT, a busload of hot, posh, prim and perfect-looking people seem to be everywhere?
Ha!Hilarious!
Shoot me.

This is called 'retribution', dear friends.
I promise I won't go around accosting poor hapless men (well...not for a while anyway).

No it doesn't end there.

Hanita and I decided to go back home by this time.
It's raining like hell and there seemed to be a jam on the highway.

Think that's bad?? I'm halfway telling Hanita a tragic story when she goes "Oh my God.."
I'm like "Yes, it is a sad story isn't it?"
Hanita : Mahima..oh my God..
Me : Yes...tragic...
Hanita : Oh..my..
Me : Okay relax man..it's not THAT sad..
*Hanita points to the fuel indicator, which is now lit up*

Turns out we had 15 minutes of fuel left.
And we were still on the highway.
In superslow traffic.
In the rain.

Suddenly images of me and Hanita, pushing the stalled car, all the way back home, filled my mind.
And I went into 'Panicky-Mahima' mode.
"Switch off the air conditioning!!Switch off the radio!!! Turn off the windshield wipers!!"
("I can't turn those off you idiot!!! I won't be able to see!". "Oh.")

Anyone who knows me, knows that I must've been scared out of my wits, to switch off the air conditioning.


I am afterall, quite the brat
=D

Oh incase anyone was wondering..

I did get home (by car, not foot)
I didn't enjoy any air conditioning on the way home.
My hair did get messed up.
Aaand I have now taken to annoying my tutors, instead of strangers. ("Time's up, sir! Can we go??Can we go??PLEEEEEEEASE???" "Oh go, you silly girl. You're giving me a headache." )


The End!
=D

My dear MM, you have a history of of accosting men to get candy bars and thumb drives. There is probably a poster of you warning guys around the university to beware.

The image of you with a plastic bag over your head and your jeans rolled up to your knee had me chuckling.

HAAAAA!!!!!! I'll let u know the image which popped up in my mind.

Car outta gas, Mahima gets outta car. Walks up to the next car in traffic (which would have a guy as a driver). Stares at him and in the same tone she had asked for candy or the thumb drive says, "Open the door, let me in and this is my address. Drop me there."

Second Option:

Mahima makes (read: orders) all guys on highway to push the car (and couple of them fan her with those Japanese fans) while Hanita steers the car

Girlfriend, there's really no need for the parantheses I think.
You can say 'I went all gushy and gave in to my base instincts to ogle attractive men.' I say damn the euphamisms, this is your blog!

That said, thi s is the very attitude that upsets the less than sculpted techno-adepts (geek is such a mean word) who have thumb drives and blank CDs at the ready.

(sob)

finding the car on E when you're nowhere near a gas station is one of the most frightening feelings ever!! fortunately there always seems to be quite a bit more gas than you expect in there even once it's on E. Whew! That's to protect people like us. :)

Blogger Madame Mahima did the happy dance and finally said..

rumpy - pfft yea.sure. me? play the very UNGLAMOROUS role of a mere car?
ha! dream on.
that role has 'apoo' written alllll over it :P

8:34 PM  
Blogger iyer education did the happy dance and finally said..

awwwww, i am SO sorry to have offered you the role of the car with low fuel... let me correct my mistake... i will give you the role of any other car "of your choice" on the highway, with the AC on and full fuel...

and i guess apoo should play mahi in the movie... your takes ?

9:08 PM  
Blogger Madame Mahima did the happy dance and finally said..

:S.
not only does the notion of apoo playing 'mahi' scare the living day lights out of me, it also conjures up the image of apoo wearing heels, having long flowy tresses and a delightfully feminine way of talking...all of which incidently scare the living daylights out of me too.

Blogger APOO did the happy dance and finally said..

So, I play a car low on fuel, without A/C which Mahima rides in, and gets hot and sweaty.

Hmmm...

I don't have much experience with boy/girl dynamics, but I'm fairly certain that you could've gotten that thumb drive AND a date if you'd really tried.

Men are easy.
