Show off!

“Switz is fun! Guys...what are you waiting for? Just come over!”, one of my friends updated her Facebook status. How I wish...if visiting Switz was as easy as hopping onto a BMTC bus from Marthahalli to Domlur. The same lady is friends with 1248 people. Did I even speak to more than thousand different people in my entire life ever? Forget adding them to my social network!

Talking more about status messages - they are hilarious. At times, I laugh out, else I think, “Silly idiot…should give this fellow one tight slap!” Otherwise, it leaves me thinking – like a few listed below.

My dear friends, sorry… I had to steal it from you!

Cannila Dorreya My baby is finally here!! The korangan gets its poomala!! My first SLR!!

Guys, FYI – somebody has drilled a hole in her pocket buying the latest DSLR. Looking forward to madam’s out-of-the-world pictures; now that the expectation is set, you cannot disappoint us. Anyways, I love the monkey and garland usage; visualizing Cani having the camera around her neck.

Kapish Mahadevan When I saw you, I was afraid to meet you.. When I met you, I was afraid to kiss you.. When I kissed you, I was afraid to love you. Now that I love you, I am afraid to lose you..

Kapish’s spinster friends, he's not going to propose any of you; this guy has already fallen in love. According to his update, I'm pretty sure his feelings for the girl are intense :p

Jeenu Togi Got a late birthday gift! How I love gifts and surprises. Thank you so much! :)

Jeenu's friends, have you wished her on phone or at least sent a scrap or wrote on her wall? Anyways, looks like none of them have excited her. Like this Mr.Late, you should have also gifted her something special worth mentioning on FB.

Again, Jeenu Togi Teacher: What is ‘Romancham’? Tintu-mon: Romancham is a particular kulirarity in which all romams dancodu dance!!

Join the club, I am also a big Tintu-mon fan. Non-mallus…sorry; you will not understand.

Reena Naila has one leg in her cube and the other in her grave...Why is all work coming to me? I am only human and not super-human!
Reena’s manager – That is intended at you; please don’t give her any more work…can’t you see her multitasking?! :)

Anuse Jehmed Bright summer's day. skimpy clad gals. more football. no more trench coats. bikinis at Hyde Park! congested tubes. bright tees. even more bikinis. no more day light saving. longer days. extra cleavages! U gotta love summer!!
Now you know what Anuse is looking forward to! But dear, is summer actually as exciting as you made it sound like?

Castin Berry joined the group ‘DHONI SUCKS’.
The same guy’s update when Chennai won the IPL, “Way to go Mahi; you are India’s smartest captain
In just less than a month, our poor Dhoni is make to suck. That's unfair...

Randy Sahul is absolutely sad :(

Somebody please attend this attention seeker!

Minu Shol We don't love qualities, we love persons; sometimes by reason of their defects as well as of their qualities. 
I think she meant something like “Om Shanti Shanti Shanti hi!” :P

And if you are wondering what my status message is, well…I am also going to show off, publishing the link to this blog post on Facebook.

This will be fun, please copy-paste your facebook, twitter, orkut or gmail status in the comment box; let us have a laugh!

Haddock said...

And people are copying them and sending it to Reader's Digest and making money.
How do you like that ?

Shiva said...

" if visiting Switz was as easy as hopping onto a BMTC bus from Marthahalli to Domlur! " - :) :)As usual, shalini, spot on with humor!

Facebook is strange, giving a peep into people's lives with their permission. Sometimes when people don't think hard about who might read, it leads to some real fun and a little embarrassment :)

lostworld said...

I rarely login to fb. I am too lazy. The best I've seen recently is 'am going to get married soon' ;-p I had a mental picture of a guy in wedding attire hurriedly logging on to fb, updating the status & then rushing to tie the mangalsutra !!!!

Pan said...

Support savagely tintumon and pity all non mallus who will have to start learning malayalam to understand him in proper context ! strong support for kenuse ahmed too. if you've lived near big ben for some years sucking up the grey skies and gloom, summer is like a godsend , bikinis and cleavages included !

angel in disguise.... said...

funny post..loved reading it..especially the attention seeker one...!:)
first time here..n i have to say...had a gr8 time..

Anonymous said...

Ohk. I am a Mallu who has no clue who or what Titu- mon is! :|

"korangan gets its poomala" -ROFL :))
(I understood that one cause you translated. ty for that):D

Neat idea for a blog post this! :)

Rohan said...

These are some of the sweet status updates of a friend!! She apparently likes her bf very much!!!! And we all know it!!
"He gave me the first chocolate today!!"
"*************** miss uuu!!!!"
(thou her bf's name is short she has a long nick name for him!!)
"Alapuzhayill eppazha current varrunne???"
(His status at the time was "Alapuzhayill current illa!!")

And the one of the good ones is
"Facebook is the "Only book" I jus love reading every nw nd then,lol;-)"

And I seriously feel you should dedicate an entire post to Tintumon!!! Hes worth it!!

$$ said...

@ lostworld - from a friend, i came to know abt this guy who updated his FB status, "Bye honey... i will miss u a lot. how much a loved u".
And ask me when u posted this - little later after his wife was dead!!! now u know the level of addiction!

@ Pan - yes yes, i pity all non mallus! :P

@ angel in disguise - Welcome to my blog; and thanks a lot for ur comments! :)

@ Choco - Thank You :) ...n to know Tintu Mon, u ought to know to read malayalam!

@ Rohan - ROFL, sharikkum.. "electricity in alappuzha" is truly hilarious... than all the status i have in my post! :)

The Holy Lama said...

some compilation. you made ppl double cautious on FB

Anil P said...

Maybe there's a book somewhere in this - Memorable FB Messages or some such. :-)

Chandu said...

Good one. Satus messages serve the purpose of mini blog with a common question - What's going on?

$$ said...

@ The Holy Lama - Though that was not my intension! :)

@ Anil P - like archies.. even this is something worth a laughter! so, yes.. u can expect it soon!

@ Chandu - Thanks! ..n i agree with u.
