What? Me? '9-to-5'? No way!

Well I have a 3 week temp job at the Discovery Channel and today was my first day of work.
Before you start falling over yourselves, let me clarify -

1) It DOES NOT require me to be in front of a camera (though we all know that is where I belong. Because I am glamorous.)
2) It DOES NOT require me to wrestle crocodiles/snakes/dangerous Australian animals (though I would very much like to wrestle delectable Australian males of the species Homo Sapien.)
3) It DOES NOT require me to travel to exotic destinations and sample their er....'specialities' (Alcoholic and/or male in nature)


It DOES, however, require me to sit my ass down in front of a computer for 8 hours a day, keying in programme information.
Tedious.
Monotonous.
But it pays well.


My whole family is busy enjoying themselves in Bangkok right now.
Mom called me a while back to check up on how I was-
She: Mahi we're having a lovely time here! We went shopping and on a tour! How was work??
Me: -mumble- Luverly.
She: What?
Me: Mom I don't think I'm ''cut out'' for this whole ''9-5'' business.
She: Oh nonsense!
Me: -mounting hysteria- No mom, I'm serious...find me a RICH BOY AND GET ME MARRIED OFF, PLEASE!!!!!
She: Ha ha ha! (or what she calls her 'Tinkling Laughter') Ok we have to go! Have fun!
Me: DIDN'T YOU LISTEN TO A WOR-...
-beep, beep, beep-

My parents are the weirdest Indian parents EVER.
While any other normal Indian parent would be on a manhunt by now, my parents are NOT DOING DIDLEY!
Buck up, Mom and Dad! I'm gonna turn 22! My biological clock is ticking I tell ya, TICKING!
-taps watch for dramatic purpose-
Do your Indian heritage proud!
Find me a boy!
A rich boy!



What happened to the good ol' days when parents would INSIST on getting their lovely daughters married off by the age of 21.
What is the world coming to.
-Shakes head-

Me first!

:lol: Can't believe you got yourself a 9-5 job! The mention of Discovery gave me hopes of seeing you on air, though. :(

Have fun and cheer up! You might even end up marrying like, the CEO of the channel (feeling unusually optimistic today!). Just hope he's not too old, though! ;)

HA HA HA.....I loved your post Mahi!!!
You always crack me up with your unique sense of humor! Well...just chill chill..just chill...I'm sure you'll work through this just fine...think about all the designer clothes/Star-Trek DVDs (in your case) you'll be able to afford once you pocket your pay-checks?! Or maybe a ticket to Australia or Bangkok..or other exotic places! Meanwhile.. it's temporary... so you might as well make the best of it! Goodluck!=)

-sigh- I know what you mean - I wish my parents would find me a rich husband too.

Of course, first I'd have to tell them I was gay. And then I'd have to insist that he also be handsome and muscley and hung like the proverbial donkey.

I have some money.

Not a lot. And once i fill up my car, it'll be halved.

But i'll be rich, for like, a few days.

I have a proposition.

You can marry me, for like, the first 2 days of the month. Ok, every alternate month.

How's that?

We'll get get drunk (like, smashed drunk) on day one. Day two we'll have beer for breakfast, and then you go home for the rest of the month.

Blogger Ashish Shakya did the happy dance and finally said..

So now it's a rich Indian cowboy...HA! best of luck with THAT!!

*Smirks at Mahi's innocent optimism and gets back to looking for his 'more practical vision' of a dream girl - a drop dead gorgeous girl, preferably Indian , aged 20-22 , sole inheritor of a multi-billion dollar fortune, with the libido of a porn star and the devotion of a nun(towards me, not Jesus!)*

mizzy - you're too kind yummy mummy!

Welcome to the new Indian parents, I am 26, and my parents are still not looking for a husband, leave alone a rich one ! What has the world come to :)

What's with this desperation to get married? Life is so much fun without it. Get yourself on holiday, have fun, forget marriage.

Thats why cars are better than women. For a car, you just need double the fuel money.

Fuel money + Oil + one senseless upgrade a month (like neon lights) + beer :)

i don't have neon lights, by the way, thats just odd. And they don't go with jeeps.

OMG Mahi, you can have my parents!!

And i promise you, they will find the richest guy ever!!

Okay maybe not the richest, but rich enough so that you can buy branded goods, go to the gym (and do nothing throughout the day), go on expensive vacations,eat at 5 star hotels and be a freakin' spoilt rich housewife for the rest of your life!

'Yes Mahi, I do understand.' :P *My 'listener' n 'understanding' capabilities were/are much hated by the rest, however. If it's any consolation, 'You don't look a day over 17'. *What not does experience teach one to say. The truth of course.*
