G Talk




There's something about girly talks that I simply don't like at all. I don't participate in them, or at least try not to. Come together a bunch of close female friends and one thing which is inevitable is GOSSIP.
What is it about talking baselessly about other people, with great interest? I have often found myself in simliar situations. I keep sitting there, listen to everyone and leave. My friends think I am either not interested in their animated conversations (which i am so not) or do not have anything interesting to contribute.
Either ways, it's not a very positive sign as far as my so-called repo in front of my friends is concerned.

So what did I do today? I found myself at the hotbed of one such malicious rumour about a friend, where I knew the whole truth already!!!
Believe me when I say that sitting there and trying to listen to those bits of baseless allegations and assumptions (gossip, i mean) was quite a task. I was tempted quite a number of times to ask my friends to stop and tell them the real scene (which is not so pleasant either). And probably that's why I didnt want to tell them the unpleasant facts. bleh. Not quite a thing that I should be proud of........

It's nothing major though. Because I know at the end of the day, our friend whose love life was being gossiped about, isn't a saint either. And doesnt care. neither for me,, nor for other friends or the gossips being circulated about her.

Even if you simply listen to gossip, you are participating in it..............

@ born vagabond
wow, i have never recd a comment for my post within minutes of posting it. haha.

yes, i read your follow up comment on your post. haha. dat's a question which everyone keeps asking me. prianca is my pen name, my identity. my parents had christened me the traditional "priyanka". But my writing and editing bug didn't even spared my name. lolz. i prefer to be known as prianca. coz dat's d spelling of my name my frnds, colleagues, clients recognise with. Prianca is my identity, it sets me apart from thousands of other priyanka's. no offences.

And no, i do not gossip. it just doesnt comes to me. Do you?

Ah.. it can be fun as well..
especially when you get to her rumours about you as well..

i remember one such incident.. i was discussing this issue of gossip with a 'good acquaintance' (not even a friend.. mind you).. and in a very matter-of-fact tone he said- "You know you and i are supposed to be going out together"..
for a minute i was stupefied... but later i had a good laugh..

btw.. AWESOME template!! where did u get it?!?!?

Ok, so here's the explanation that you have been craving for ;). Actually I came across your profile and saw that you are a Scorpio. Then when I came across your first post, the first thing I wanted to comment on your behaviour was related to your zodiac sign. I earlier had a bit of study in this field. If you would like to know, Scorpios are the most intense, profound and powerful characters in the zodiac. Even when you appear self-controlled and calm, as in this case, there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under that calm exterior. You are like a volcano not far under the surface of a calm sea; it may burst at any damn moment. You may have an unintentional way of making those around you feel naked and defenseless - but then again, maybe you do mean to do that. Hope you aren't bored with my long post... :)

I cannot believe that the behavioral characteristics of a person are determined by the position of the sun in the zodiac when he/she is born.

However ridiculous and illogical it is, there appears to be certain patterns. By the way, those females in the pic look hot :p
