Sinner Sinner


When I first saw this tag ‘Sin against Gender Stereotypes’ from IHM I thought ‘I’ve never committed any of these ‘sins”

But after reading posts by my dear Smitha, Deeps and Hitchy, (and being officially taggedΒ  by them) I realised that I’m guilty too πŸ™‚

So here are my list of sins against gender equality:
1. I think cooking is a waste of time!!

2. Would rather hang around the Computer or TV

3. Never been a very girly girl.. you know ..the pretty ones who do their curls and eyes and lips and all that stuff. I’ve always been just plain vanilla!!

4. Would rather read than watch an Ekta Kapoor soap!

5. Believe ‘serving’ family members/guests is a slightly menial task and that each person at the table must just stretch his/her arm out to help him/herself!!

6. Love technology… esp computers and MS-office πŸ™‚ Such a shame that I don’t do much of it anymore!

7. Cannot bake or make anything (cakes/pickles/traditional south Indian cuisine).. i.e., rather unfit inside the kitchen!!

8. Desperately need ‘peace’, ‘space’ and ‘quiet’. Except for my own ‘khit-phit’ cannot stand any other noise πŸ˜‰

9. Love screwing (Straighten your thoughts, my friend… I meant – love tinkering about with stuff – fixing/repairing/screwing/unscrewing broken things)

10. Would rather surf the net than gossip with the womenfolk πŸ˜‰

11. Not a fan of ‘pink’, ‘heels’, ‘stilletos’ or anything pretty. As I said, I’m a plain vanilla!

And now to tag people…. er… here is the list of the Tagged :-

Shail

Batul

Dreamer

Ordinary Guy

Piper

Pushpee

Quirky Indian

Ratna

Supriya

Roshmi

Yashada

Saurabh

Now the creator of the Tag, our very own IHM says…

So here’s a tag – Please list at least ten things you have ever wanted or done which your gender is not supposed to.

The tag is called β€˜My Sins against Gender-Stereotypes’. And you must tag twelve blogging friends or else you will be cursed to wear blue clothes pants if you are a woman and pink shirts if you are a man – for next twelve years

So get going people πŸ™‚

  1. I like plain vanilla πŸ˜‰

    Me too, Vanilla is the best, though the others look more attractive πŸ˜‰

  2. For the love of god, we know you are crazy about blogging !!! you dont have to mention that so many times !! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
    LOL, OK point noted πŸ™‚
    and glad you mentioned about tinkering. I was like ‘gasppp’ for a minute ! πŸ˜‰
    ROFL! That explanation was specifically for you btw πŸ˜‰

  3. We’re all the same kind πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I’m amazed!

    Same here, Scorpia. I’ve been amazed at this too. All the women who have done this tag have said almost the same thing πŸ™‚ We are a rocking generation methinks!!

  4. Ekta Kapoor will wonder if she should also start blogging πŸ™‚
    Ayyo.. please spare us.. she has already ruined Indian television!!

    And 5. I don’t see why not. Everybody should.
    Yup!!
    I love technology too. I wish I knew a little more – enough to tweak the blog template a bit!! But no scr… errr tinkering for me!
    But I also prefer to spend time with the comp so I guess we are sisters in sin πŸ™‚
    LOL!!! Looks like everybody likes scr.. er.. tinkering πŸ˜‰
    Join all the sinners here, Sinners Against Gender Stereotypes (SAGS)

  5. hee hee :):) I find myself nodding away! :)Thanks for the tag! Shall do it right away.

    He he he, thanks Piper. Waiting to read yours πŸ™‚

  6. All of us sinners have many similar qualities!

    I used to serve everybody first and then sit and eat alone, for the past many years. Now, I am sitting and eating with everybody. This is supposed to be a big revolution among my relatives!
    Exactly, Sandhya!! Its so unfair to women, to wait and serve and finally eat cold food alone!!
    Tinkering…everybody seems to mention this here! When I was in my mother’s place, I used to open open transistors and other small gadgets, clean them (cockroach eggs!) and screw them up!! Now, don’t do it!
    LOL!!! Ditto, except that I hate cockroaches and their eggs πŸ˜‰
    Cooking is a waste of time?! I love you for this statement, Pallavi!

    LOL, thanks, Sandhya. Its wonderful to see that most of the Blogging folks here do think cooking is a waste of time, Unless ofcourse it is cooking out of self interest and not routine/duty!

  7. From one sinner to another- Hi5!!

    “5. Believe β€˜serving’ family members/guests is a slightly menial task and that each person at the table must just stretch his/her arm out to help him/herself!!” Brilliant..I hate even those men who, right after they’ve had a meal, expect their moms or wives to carry their plates to the sink.
    πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I don’t understand why we women pamper the men so much!!

    I like your expression ‘plain vanilla’ πŸ™‚
    Thank u Deeps πŸ™‚
    Nandri for doing this tag, Pallu..I was beginning to think you’d forgotten about it πŸ˜€
    Never! Infact Deeps, I was travelling on Friday noon, so I did the Tag on Thurs and scheduled it for auto publishing on Friday!!

  8. This seems to be THE tag of the season! πŸ™‚ Certainly is!!!
    I dunno whether I qualify to talk about others but I’m with you on pt 7. I am a total klutz in the kitchen. I just follow recipes & perform steps a la chemistry lab scientist! ROFL!! Just picturing you in a Lab coat and experimenting with food πŸ˜‰
    You must be the first sinner with a flavour – vanilla! πŸ˜€ Hee hee πŸ˜‰

  9. plain vanilla is my fav pal and u have chocolate sauce in all the points to go along
    Hi fi to fellow sinner

    Thx Monu dahling πŸ™‚ That was so sweet of u!!

  10. I love screwing too…er..umph..yeah I meant tinkering…but otherwise we don’t match at all..except 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11,….opposites attracts maybe….coz I get drifted towards u to navigate ur blog, almost stalking u…hehehee…..thx for tagging me…will do it soon…

  12. 1. he he he..Pal, so u r a Maggie lover ??? On the contrary I actually cook decent stuff πŸ˜‰ Except that I hate doing it πŸ˜‰

    2. Absolutely, my choice too…TV only to watch my fav T&L shows. Ditto πŸ™‚

    3. LOL – curls and lips !!! Plain vanilla is awesome right ??? Totally πŸ™‚ Though, strawberry, pista, mango and chocolate look more attractive πŸ˜‰
    4. Oh, I would run miles from Ekta !!! LOLLLLL!! πŸ˜€

    5. Even I find this quite annoying – how nice it would be to sit together, serve on their own and eat with lots of chit chatting… Exactly!!!!! πŸ™„

    6. Is that what is left from ur last job – Come on, Pal, start working part-time / from home…. Hmmm… just not ready yet, Uma.. sometime in the future, I hope!! πŸ˜›

    8. Solitude lady…. Absolutely!!! Or call me crazy πŸ˜‰

    9. Ok – I know u wouldn’t write like that in ur blog…he he he … LOL! Actually I would dare to.. just not sure how my FB friends/relatives would react to it as they would read it via Automatic feeds πŸ˜‰

    10. LOL

    We are all sinners in our own! Each so similar yet to unique and individual!! πŸ™‚
    hugs!

    Yeah Pix, even I was amazed at the similarities in us.. this awesome bunch of bloggers πŸ™‚

  16. Vanilla – that is my favourite πŸ™‚ I can never understand why it’s called ‘plain’ vanilla – have people not figured out how expensive vanilla is πŸ™‚
    LOLLLL!!! Me likey Vanilla too. But I also like Pista sometimes πŸ˜‰

    Am so totally with you on No 5! I cannot understand the concept of ‘serving’ either!
    Same pinch, girl πŸ™‚
    ‘ rather unfit inside the kitchen’ – That is a little difficult to believe after seeing your latest post πŸ™‚
    LOL! That was a matter of downloading the correct picture, that’s all πŸ˜‰

  17. Ok done your tag Pal. πŸ™‚
    I so like the 10th one on your list. I agree completely πŸ˜›

    Thanks Shail πŸ™‚ I lovedddddd reading your tag too!!

  18. LOL! Pallavi, this is me too… Tinkering… not a kitchen person … love the computer and MS Office πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Such resonance. Finally the sinners find reprieve and redemption, I think πŸ™‚ Just did mine, and had such fun making the list up!
