Don't You Dare!

It seems that there's a meme fever going around in the blogosphere. I've just finished several tags last week and now am doing another one I received from Janice. This meme is called 8 Things You Shouldn't Say Around BLANK. You can fill in the blank however you want to so I'm going to let you know the 8 Things You Shouldn't Say Around A Freelance Copywriter Who Loves Cats and Perfumes! Here goes...

1. Hey, don't you want to get a real job? (Excuse me, freelancing from home is very much real work for those ignorant enough to ever pose me this question!)

2. Are you sure you want to buy yet another perfume? (A different scent a day keeps the depression away, so yes!)

3. Benji is putting on weight, you should put him on a diet. (What? Benji may be fat but he does get his exercise from running around after his 2 siblings every day!)

4. Err, do you think u can give me a discount for this job Marzie? (Another discount?! Pay me on time and I'll consider it!)

5. Hey, you look different today! (Why? Are you saying that I look fat?!)

6. Marzie, wake up! I need you to do this translation ASAP! (Please don't ever deprive me of my beauty sleep so early in the morning! I'm a night owl, so I sleep during the day!)

7. Hello, we got your number from your friend and we're wondering if you'd be interested to join our gym... (Why? Are u saying that I need to lose weight? And who is this friend of mine who gave you my number without informing me?!)

8. Why don't you try our new hair treatment from Japan, you hair is really dry and frizzy! (Yeah, that's exactly what I want to hear when I go to my hairdresser. Stop trying to sell me your expensive products by insulting my hair and a little subtlety doesn't hurt either!)

Phew! Now that I got that out of my system, here are my 5 victims! LOL!

Nessa, Bobo, Bokjae, Hin Man & Bobby

I like this idea! A little more freedom to show a little of your dark side and be sarcastic if desired. Just the thought of you missing even just minutes from your nourishing beauty sleep has me in a rage. I'd say something like, your hair is so beautiful and soft - please allow me the chance to massage this hair moisturizer into your heavenly locks so I will know what it's like to touch something so precious. That's the way you want it done? And nothing less!:):):)

Gotta love those hair stylists. Every time I go, they first compliment how soft and clean my hair is, then they badmouth the very product that does it after asking what shampoo is used.

That said, I did try their preferred products for a week, and it made my hair stiff and unmanagable for a full month.


Hair experts indeed.

bokjae August 20, 2007 9:17 AM

Whoa tagged again! you are right theres a tag fever lately. Will do it after I finish a few earlier tags! Thanks marzie!

J@n!ce August 20, 2007 9:43 AM

Marzie, I think we gals are most scare of pple saying our appearance. I read your 8 qns & we have a few similiarities. Actually you know those answers (yours is written in red) from mine are additional that I wrote in so that pple will have a better understanding why they should say the qns to me. I think that is more meaningful. Glad to see that in yours too :) :)

I've encountered those wanting to sell pdts via the phone & I kinda get angry too where the hell they get my phone from & who is the sabotaging friend who pass it to them.... LOL :)

Mariuca August 20, 2007 11:48 AM

Hi Bobby, that's a good one, although it will never happen. Hairdressers need to go for a course in manners so they'll be more tactful! Glad u like the tag, so I guess it'll be up soon? ;)

Mariuca August 20, 2007 11:49 AM

Hi Jason, welcome to my blog! Oh yeah, the thing is I too have tried their expensive recommended stuff several times now and they seem pretty normal to me. Definitely didn't make my hair more soft and manageable like they claim, so what gives?! LOL! This tag is fun, I get to bitch about stuff that bugs me! :)

Mariuca August 20, 2007 11:51 AM

Hello bokjae! Yay, I hope to see ur "complaints" soon here LOL!

Mariuca August 20, 2007 11:54 AM

Janice! Yeah, it does make more sense to have the little explanations on the side! :)

Tell me abt it Janice, I just hate it when I pick up my cell phone and I get all sorts of strangers bugging me about this and that when I have absolutely no interest in whatever they're selling, enough oredi!!! ;)

Adrian August 20, 2007 11:54 AM

Marzie! It wasn't me about the gym thingy LOL My my my you sound pretty stressed and touchy when it comes to certain questions...especially those concerning weight...err... work...errr and appearance LOL

PS Since you're so free I've tagged you with a little've probably got it already but does it look like I care LOL Cheers!

For Hubbs...that bloody ref cost us the game...and after that excellent goal by Torres too! Arrrgghhh!!!!

Mariuca August 20, 2007 12:09 PM

Ha ha ha, of coz it wasn't u Adrian..and it's not just the gym.. it's also the time sharing places, water purifiers etc... stop calling me la!!!

I actually had fun doing this meme, managed to blow off steam on stuff that bugs me LOL! :):):)

Msg from hubbs: (Angrily) Yeah la!Some more MU kalah, so it was a good time for Liverpool to go up, but cause of the stupid ref's decision, they couldn't take advantage of MU and Arsenal's results!

Adrian August 20, 2007 12:22 PM

Marzie! Yeah those "Crank" callers are a pain in the posterior! LOL

Yes I can see that you blew off a lot of steam with this one! LOL

And most importantly...Yeah we couldn't take advantage of the situation with MU's loss (LOL) and Arsenal's draw...what a waste...wish they could sue the ref! LOL That would be fun! (Like the silly Sheffild Utd trying to sue West Ham...crazy lah...for the sake of money the sportsmanship is lost!)

Mariuca August 20, 2007 12:37 PM

Definitely Adrian! Don't call me if u wanna sell stuff, and I hate it when strangers get hold of my cell number! :( Can't wait for ur meme on this, wanna see what gets Adrian mad he he he...

Hubbs left for the office so can't get his response on this suing issue. But last night, he stomped angrily into my office and gave his two cents on the match, so I'm guessing his train of thoughts would most likely go towards the same direction as yours when it comes to his beloved Liverpool!

Oh yeah, he wore this Liverpool shirt in LA and received many compliments on it, so he's pretty proud of his shirt I must say LOL! ;)

Bobby Revell August 20, 2007 1:48 PM

The post will be up soon you guess? Never say you guess to a tall white guy from Mississippi, ok. . . Gotcha:)Sometimes I wish I had a rude blog criticizing everyone just to let off steam! Maybe I'll start one:)Oh no, there's Phoebe, all anger is forgotten as I am blinded by fluffy cuteness and now I'm talking to her picture...awww, you're a pretty kitty. Cute kittens always break my train of thought:):):)

Nick Phillips (15/03/1967 - 04/11/2022) August 20, 2007 2:41 PM

Marzie, remind me to never ask you to do any translation jobs first thing in the morning even if the world depended on it ... LOL!

That's why I say support Kelab Bola Sepak Kuala Pilah, don't want, now blame the ref! LOL!

Adrian August 20, 2007 2:43 PM

I still wonder how they get the numbers...sometimes I get a call for my wife asking for a Mr. they don't even know who they're calling or male/female... either that or wifey's got a big secret LOL (just kidding B (yeah I call wifey B too) in case you're reading this)! LOL

Mariuca August 20, 2007 3:43 PM

Hi Bobby! I doubt you'll ever have a rude blog! It just doesn't become you ;)

Am glad that Phoebe is always around to take my anger away and now yours! :):)

Mariuca August 20, 2007 3:51 PM

Nick, why can't they just sms me or leave me an email or something instead of literally waking me up by calling and calling nonstop and when I pick up they do say "Wake up Marzie!" Ha ha ha ha....

Mariuca August 20, 2007 3:53 PM

Adrian, tell me abt it..many times I got annoyed when they say "Hello, boleh cakap dengan Encik Marzie?...." What's up la!

Nick, apparently it was a bad call on the ref's part mah.... when are u gonna get together with ur Arsenal buddies and gang up on Adrian and hubbs? LOL! ;)

Nessa August 20, 2007 11:23 PM

Hey Marzie! This victim is pleading for leniency... LOL! I hope I don't screw this up like Nick aka the funnyman did! He sure didn't bother to read... wahahaha:D

I'll do this as soon as I get the other two million three hundred sixty five and a half outstanding tags completed! hehe

Mariuca August 20, 2007 11:27 PM

Ha ha ha Nessa, you're making me laugh..sorry Nick but it is funny!!

Sure Nessa, I understand... I too am still owing several memes, just let me know when ur done and I'll hop over to read YOUR questions! LOL... Nick Nick.... he he he...

Unknown August 21, 2007 1:42 AM

I hate it when the hairdresser makes the dry, frizzy remark... it's awful.

Mariuca August 21, 2007 1:44 AM

Hi Amber! Oh tell me about it!! The last time I went to my hairdresser, he made really awful remarks abt my hair in front of my hubby!! I'm NEVER going back there AGAIN! LOL :):)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 21, 2007 10:57 PM

hi marzie. i love your questions & answers. It's unpredictably witty and funny. :)

Mariuca August 22, 2007 12:33 AM

Thanks Jean, you always say the nicest things! Glad u loved my questions! :):):)

NafaSg August 24, 2007 2:28 PM

Wah Marzie u are very strict ah? I especially like the way u answer the last question. I should do the same also! ;p

Mariuca August 24, 2007 3:09 PM

Hello NAFA! No lah, this post is for me to vent my frustrations mah! Hence the strictness! LOL!

Oh yeah, u gotta be firm with ur hairdresser or not they'll trick u into buying all sorts of expensive stuff THEY CLAIM can make ur hair better! ;)
