What’s on your mind?

 Ok, If…

  • you are bored
  • have nothing important to do for some time
  • have some active Facebook users in your ‘friends’ list

Here’s a tried and tested formula, to banish the boredom from your life day…

Sit on your Facebook Home Page and refresh it from time to time and read the status messages from your ‘friends’. And believe me you will experience a myriad of expressions, ranging from LOL to ROFL; irritation to intrigue, amazement to disgust… they are from living room to bed room, hostel mess to stomach gas, break-ups to patch-ups, in all meant to thoroughly entertain you.

Don’t believe me?? Here are the actual Facebook Status Updates. Names and identities have been withheld to protect myself from the anger and wrath of fellow Facebook users!!

  • The Weather Reporters: The forecast on your TV or that small section in the newspaper are simply passé, coz you have friends who will give you the 100% authentic weather report and will also share their expectations and thoughts.
        • Rain is falling chhama chham chham…
