Wishlist 2009 - 10

1.      Refrigerator Managed to get one….Yipee(!!!)
2.       HiDef Projector or LCD TV If this is in the list for 2011, I will kill myself. Seriously.
3.      2 good vacations Got one…. And looks like no vacations for a long long time….but for a good reason.
4.       Cool laptopTyping this post on it now, almost a year down the line and am still happy with it.
5.      Sunglasses

:( Really hoping for it still

6.       iPod with good dock Wifey gifted the iPod, and made a semi-portable dock kinda thingy. So I don't want this thingy anymore.
7.      Nintendo Wii Umm…..

And now that we are done with the progress report on last year's list, let's move on to...

  Wish List 2009 - 2010.

Not that we cannot buy one right now, but we are somehow always waiting for a better one at a lower price point. Right now, am waiting for the LED TV to become cheaper
  1. PS3
The PS3 Slim. Man!!! Its so darn sexy, and it would also go well with the entire home theatre scene.
  1. Sunglasses
This thing is jinxed. Each time I come close to buying one, something bad happens. Almost makes me too scared to go out and attempt to buy one again. Honest!
  1. MFD
A multi-function device that is. And in case you still have a big '?' over your head. It's one of them Printer + Scanner + Photocopier thingies…
  1. LCD Monitor & TV for bedroom
The LG Monitor TV seems to be a good solutions…maybe soon.
  1. Upscaling DVD Player (if no PS3)
But I do want the PS3… sniff! L
  1. One more AC for TV room
Hopefully in time for summer 2010, along with #8
  1. Power Backup
Not sure how much it would cost if I hope to have the AC running though. Might have to settle for fan.
  1. N72 ?
Find myself looking at it on the web now and then. I am too in love with my N51 even now so it feels like cheating if I even crave for an iPhone. But with an n72, its like… cheating with the sister? Eww!
  1. Cutest baby in the whole wide world
Oh wait…. I already have this one. :D

My Rules

Any similarity to 'new rules' is purely intentional.

1. Can the dabbawallah talk - Next time someone talks about innovation in India, no mention should be made of bombay dabbawallahs and their six sigma ratings. Oh and while you are at it, stop talking about the surd who converted a washing machine into a lassi maker. If out of a crowd of 1,20,00,000+ people we need to harp on the same two innovations, let's face it. We are NOT.

2. No Cheese at Mac - Anyone caught taking a photograph at a McDonalds, at the bench with their hand around Ronald McDonald should be shot on the spot and hung from a stake as an example to others. And as an addendum, anyone taking touristy photographs at lame locations like the local mall, multiplex, public toilet etc. can be shot as well.

3. Diss the B - Next time the Big B appears in a Big C grade movie, bitch about his performance, his role  and his choice. Don't diss the entire movie and single out the Big B for being 'the saving grace'. No he isn't. The worst thing about Aag was the Big B. And the movie had Nisha Kothari if you remember.

4. Hose the host - And the politician and the movie producer who says 'The Indian public is smart. Give them credit.' No we aren't. We watch K serials, hug movie stars and buy them expensive gifts when we appear on their show, use our clothes as a substitute for tissues, vote for career criminals,  and listen to bhangra.

5. Forget 1983 - I am told that we won the world cup in 1983. I had no clue since we pretty much suck at cricket and especially during the world cup. The only people who had a right to celebrate the anniversary of winning the cup are the people who actually won it. (Which they did). The morons across India who celebrated that day can be shot along with the Dabbawala talkers and McDonald posers.

6. No dotcom ads - What are the top websites that come to your mind? Google. Yahoo. Rediff. Amazon. etc. What don't? BigAdda.  iBibo. BharatStudent.  I don't want the owners of these websites shot. Not even the broadcasters. Not even the pimply teen who *has* to register at every new social networking site that crops up. Shoot the VCs who fund these supposed 'next google' dotcom idea.

7. Show the door to these endorsements - Shahrukh telling me he loves his pepsi is one thing. Shahrukh telling me he loves driving his Santro? AB (and now) SRK askin me to use Navratan oil? A few years back we had Sachin Tendulkar riding a TVS bike. Are these guys kiddin me? Shoot the next MBA passout ad agency executive who comes up with the idea of using Shahrukh to endorse whisper ultra. And while they are at it... shoot the next creative director who portrays a church wedding for an ad. Last I checked, we are still a hindu major nation and yet all our ads and movies show people getting out of churches ( Race  and Tata Indicom ad anyone?)

8.  Cricket bashers - Next time some hockey or tennis or football nut says that Indian public should support other games and not be obsessed with cricket... don't shoot em. Ask em to go to Brazil and propogate test cricket.

9. Hindi fanatics - The next moron who tells me that I need to know Hindi numbers (and hindi in general) because 'afterall its our national language', should first name every member of the Indian Hockey team. After all its our national game.

10. Shoot anyone named Ekta Kapoor. - Do I need to elaborate why?
