I'm a girl and I hate weddings

I have been tagged!!
 I have to write 'bout how some common misconceptions have hounded the female sector of the society for long. I have to write 'bout atleast ten things that I have ever wanted to do or done that I'm not "supposed" to, as per the invisible book of gender biased rules which our society so graciously follows.

So here goes: This is my eye rolling list. Start rolling

 1) I hate weddings. Atleast the weddings that happen in the part of the country that I live in. South India. I hate that people have to wake up at unholy hours like 4 am in the morning to attend the holy business of matrimony. Even the food is so-so in SI weddings. I don't like weddings. They are boring.

2) I don't believe in idol worship. I'm a hindu. So I guess the 2 sentences sum up the shock value. My family is weirdly conservative. They are confused about the "rules" they have to "impose". Anyway, initially my parents used to get crazy when I didn't participate in any family poojas. Then they gave up. I like it.

3)I like to wear boxer shorts at home. My mom tells me to change when some unwanted relatives drop in. I won't. I love the look on their faces. "Oh my god!"..lol

4)I wore a frock to my cousin's wedding. When all the others wore sarees and stuff, I chose to wear a knee-length dress. It was a conservative South Indian wedding, but It didn't seem out of place. Everyone liked it.

5)I stood first in college 3 times in Electrical Engineering, considered a male dominated domain. I beat all my male counterparts! Yes!!

6)I learnt how to ride a bike before my brother did. I mean a geared one, not the gearless. I don't ride it though. Too heavy, but still :)

7) I have been to more than 4 all-girl tours in and around South India without supervision :)

8)Hmmm...Now I'm running out of things. its a unisex-ual world, there's nothing that guys do and girls cant.Okay,  I can't cook for nuts. I can make boost for myself, if thats any consolation.

9)I know more about cellphones and cars than one of my male friends. I'm not boasting, but I know more than atleast one guy :)

10) Finally, I'm 22 yrs old and I have never put on anything more than a moisturiser on my face till now. I hate make up.

Okay, those are my ten things. Thank you Sowmya for tagging me. Now if I don't tag some people, I'll be cursed to wear blue cloth pants and I'm glad I'm not a guy 'cos if I were and I didn't tag people I would be cursed to wear pink shirts. :)
