Red

The color that almost every wedding dress here has. . . . .even when it ruins an otherwise beautiful piece of art like the one in the picture. I’d have totally bought it for the big day, were it not for the hideous patches of red that spotted the golden fabric.

Daily Prompt: Ready for Your Close-up

Cast the movie of your life.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us SUPERSTAR.

The toughest part about writing this topic is that not being a movie buff, I’m not very well aware of the options I have. I come to know of some through my sister, others because they are having a break-up and it’s trending on Twitter, or because they received some kind of threat on Twitter, or they took to tweeting about some irrelevant bullshit and it was trending on Twitter, or because they were shutting down their Twitter accounts and yes, it was in the news.
So, of the few I know, who should play my role? My sister once said that I look like KStew, but she has changed her mind since. Besides, being nervous when speaking to my fiancè is so not me. I’m the one mentioning yet another restaurant where I’d like him to take me, and once the food is brought in and I’ve successfully connected to the WiFi, he can be conveniently forgotten till when I need a ride home. Maybe, Megan Fox can play my role. Not saying that I’m hot but I’m sure she can play the mean girl role quite well. Hold on. . .so you think she might not be interested? Well, wait till I threaten her on Twitter.
Bridgit Mendler could play my sister. Happened to watch Labor Pains once, so I know she fits the bill.
I don’t know who plays Howard Wolowitz’s mother in The Big Bang Theory but I’m sure she can play mine too.
Adding up the costs of paying these people, I now feel like it might be a whole lot better to just call in the budding actors in the neighborhood.

Daily Prompt: I’d Like to Thank My Cats

You are receiving an award –- either one that already exists, or a new one created just for you. What would the award be, why are you being honored, and what would you say in your acceptance speech?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us VICTORY

‘Award For Tolerance Of Bullshit’

Education Minister: I’d like to take this opportunity to present you this award for continued support to the soul-crushing education system. You have been tolerating all our mindless rules and oppressive ways that we employ to basically rein in your freedom of thought and action. Not that you had a choice, but we, in our generosity, would like to reward you for this tolerance that you were forced to.

Me (in my rejection speech): (holding the award with tears in my eyes as I text some psychiatrist for an appointment) I am at a loss of words at Mr Minister’s generosity to me. In just a few words, you have taken me back to my childhood, where I learned crap I could never use. But I’d rather not take all the credit. This would have been impossible without your persistent attempts at inventing more and more innovative techniques of torture thay we’d no way out of. So, I’d like to return this PTSD-triggering piece of shit, back to the person who deserves it best.

Daily Prompt: Funny Ha-Ha

Do you consider yourself funny? What role does humor play in your life? Who’s the funniest person you know?
Sometimes people find me funny. It’s mostly when I’m too pissed off to refrain from speaking the truth. And the more pissed off I am, the funnier I seem to get. It’s not like I do it on purpose. In fact, nothing could be further from my purpose than making people laugh. I intend to incite them against the wrongdoers, instead of making them laugh at the accurate but unflattering picture I’m painting of our common nemesis.
Concerning the place of humor in my life, I can say that I could hardly go through the day without humor. I can’t imagine running the gauntlet of the insane oppressive people in authority, without some humor. It must have been the lack of humor that made it so easy for me to leave my probably-former station. That place was a cesspool of humorless arrogant atheists.
Funniest person I know? Not my fiance, though I’d have loved it that way. Not my sister anymore-she seems to have gotten very serious these days. Not my peers, since the funnier classmates in college got replaced by mean and evil colleagues. Wait, I need to find that one. Till then, I’m trapped in this dismal world.

Daily Prompt: Secret of Success

What would it take for you to consider yourself a “successful blogger”? Is that something you strive for?

I would consider myself a “successful blogger” when I start writing stuff that’s really meaningful, that gives information that’s relevant in a wider sense, rather than my thoughts on the questions Daily Prompt asks. I wish for it, though I am not really striving for it now, my time being consumed in other activities.
I want to write about some curious town that I visited. I want to be the voice to some neglected orphan. I want to be more than the trash-blogging person I may have become.

Daily Prompt: These Boots Were Made for Walking

Tell us about your favorite pair of shoes, and where they’ve taken you.

I don’t have a favorite pair of shoes. I don’t have such strong sentiments for my footwear. . .or any other garment for that matter. In fact I’m no admirer of the arts and no lover of fashion.

College and my fiance might have pushed me a little towards fashion and I have gone so far as to flip through the pages of Red. And oh yeah I’ve started using handbags. But that’s it. I haven’t been affected enough to start having a love affair with the money-sucking beauty and clothing industries.

And yet again, maybe I’d start loving one of my shoes for where I’ve been to, with them on my feet. Maybe if the soles had the soil of my native land (yes, I haven’t been there since I was two months old), I’d love them. Or maybe the sands of Mecca on my shoes would endear them to me. But I haven’t been anywhere so good and so I don’t have a favourite pair of shoes yet.
