Embarrassing Moments [1]

        Well well.... Some shit happened to me yesterday. My Facebook got a virus thanx to my lovely bottom of a brother, so now I can't go on =( And well it's all so wonderful because this happened on my birthday! Thank you bloody virus creator, you're the effing best =). So yea I'm 18.. don't know how I feel about that really, I mean I was supposed to accomplish a lot before 18 and well that never worked out, so it ain't feeling so great. But then again what were the chances of me writing a book before 18, a successful book for that fact?.
       Anywho, I was thinking that I blogged about a lot of pretty random things, but I can't blame myself because the stuff you find here actually comes from my mind and yea I spend some few days thinking about it, and when it's too much I just decide to blog =D Aren't you all glad? You get to read my wonderful yet so uninteresting thoughts =D YAY YOU! So as pointless and irrelevant as it may all seem, you really can't blame me because the original intention of my blog was too tell you all about my embarrassing moments. You see I live with some pretty weird folks, I have some pretty weird friends, I meet some pretty interesting people and well I'm pretty stupid =) Soo all those things are very much a recipe for disaster! And that my friends, is why I have so many embarrassing moments, so many that I had intentionally thought of telling them all to you.... but they are quite embarrassing so I have had second thoughts =S. And well I have no Facebook and nothing better to do, so I decided that I should try and blog my original intentions... just to accomplish one of my 'before I reach 18' goals and plus ... I think I've finally mustered the courage =S.
            So many of you may think I'm bluffing about my life just to make it seem all interesting an what not... but don't judge my moments of shame! =P Well I can't name specifics because I don't really want the people involved to feel as embarrassed as I did or feel bad because I felt embarrassed when the situation seemed totally normal to them =). Ok so lets date back to a few years ago, it was my first day of school [Yes, a first day of school moment.. but no lie, real shit happens on that day!]. So being my first day, my parents had told me to be outgoing and make friends because they know how shy and anti social I am. And well I am really shy, awkward and anti social but I had taken drama the year before and I felt like I had really blossomed when it came to talking to new people. So I decided to be very talkative in order to make friends that day; btw if you are going to a new school this September... that doesn't usually work, since people don't really talk to you much first day of high school. So I figured that the flaw in my plan was that I was waiting for people to talk to me ... which is my typical mind set, so I said to myself 'You know what!?! If I'm going to do this... I've got to talk to people too!' So after a few classes, the dreaded lunch hour came! Who was I going to spend a hour with, if I didn't know anybody?!?!?! So as the bell rang and old friends reunited, I thought 'Hey, well I'm sure I'm not the only new person here on the first day of school,' so I began to look around for lonely people like myself, then I spotted someone who did quite fit the description of a potential friend : female, short like myself so that intimidation of height was not a factor, alone, lost look on her face amongst the crowd. Ok so it sounds like I was going to make her my victim but no don't get that idea lolz, its only because I'm female, short, was alone and lost... common grounds make for good friendships =P So I decided to go over and ask her to have lunch with me... so I walked over and in an almost awkward voice I said "Oh so you're new here too right?!" and she replied, "No, I'm waiting for my friends." And then I felt a surge of stupidity overcome me as all I could say was "Oh ok." And I quickly ran away from the humiliation but it stuck like glue =( So now I can't help but think that she thinks I'm a freak, but how impolite of her to not ask me if I was new and ask me to join her for lunch hmph! People! =P Anyways, it turns out that she was in a year above me and not in my level at all and I would often see them in the hallway and remember that shameful moment! And well I learned nothing from that except 'Keep your mouth shut and don't talk to people until spoken to first' and well thanks to that mindset, I'm even more antisocial than before =). Wow writing this stuff out makes me realize that I have real issues to deal with LMAO, well I guess if you know me and you're reading this.... now you know why I'm so messed up!

       So not speaking until spoken  to seemed like a wise idea before, until this next incident; and that's when I learned that I should not speak at all! This other time was for a family wedding... aie yie yie.. when does it end for me?!?! Ok so I had not so recently attended a wedding of a close-ish relative and well it was a nice little shindig, lovely decor, good food, wonderful people but then tragedy struck! My father had signaled me over to his table to introduce me to one of my relatives, so I gladly got up, put on my decent face and headed over to be all smiles and sweet little angel. So when I landed, my father had said, " Meet your family, give them a hug and thing," So me in my stupidity responded to them, "Oh hi, congratulations!" And then the awkward moment of silence struck, my father broke it with his words, "He's not married yet, it's the brother that got married today." And all I could say is, "OooHhhhh," and all I think is "Shit!" But my father is one of the reasons I have so many embarrassing moments, because he continued to talk, "Like she hurrying you to the gun?" So I just smiled and I could see the embarrassment on his face as well since he was actually single at that time and had no plans for a wedding anytime soon, so I glided over to my seat to die of my embarrassment. But honestly, they resemble and they were wearing the same suit thing and I mean I knew who he was, I met him before so when my father wanted to introduce me to them I had automatically assumed that it was someone I was unfamiliar with. On many occasions they had forgotten who I was, so I  pray that it happens again, although I may have made it quite difficult for that to happen this time =S
         Well I guess that's it for embarrassing moments today, don't ridicule please, or else I won't tell you anymore hmph! =P So I leave you with this; What would you say was your most embarrassing moment? Comment and tell us =) Honestly, it's too hard for me to choose just one cause there are soo many awful ones! Maybe if I get good reviews I'll keep them coming... oh my what am I signing myself up for here!? =S

    Oh and well Hindi Bindi has a tumblr as well now =D It's super duper awesome!!! We linked it to our homepage for easy access, feel free to check it out -------> Follow us, reblog us, Love us =P lmao.

How to be the Ultimate HP fan. [Prt 2]

      Yo yo, almost ultimate HP fans?!?! So like I promised... I'm going to help you on your almost completed journey in becoming the ultimate Harry Potter fans. So if you haven't read part 1, den your a newbie and you shouldn't be reading this as yet, cos' it might be too much for you to handle [Can't say I didn't warn you =P]. If you've read and obeyed Part 1, then welcome...... Let us complete our sole task...

1. Honor thy Wand.
  Ok so every great wizard needs a WAND?!?! Like how the hell are you going to cast your patronus if you don't have a wand?? So to be a great fan you need to have your wand, but you most likely can't just pop by Ollivander's... So my expectation of you is to make one!!! It's quite simple, If you look at the first pic you'll see how it's done and the second pic shows how it should look afterwards. Ok the most convenient method is to use papier mâché. So use some computer paper and roll it up into a decent wand size and glue it up. Use thing piece of paper soaked it glue to make the fine details and well after, you can paint it all up. Or you can use fabric glue and draw on your wand since it dries like puff paint. Orrrrr..... You cud be gansta like me and go find a wand looking stick in your yard, and spray it with bronze paint =D. So go make yourself a wand... like right after you read this post! Expecto Patronum!

2. Honor thy Glasses.
    Well... if you wear glasses, you know what to do! Make an appointment a.s.a.p. to get your frames changed to circular spectacles just like Harry's. If you don't wear glasses then go and get non prescription glasses to wear, so you look like a true HP fan. Or if you wish not to go through such expense... which is for a good cause btw... you can always purchase a toy glasses or one from a costume shop. If you wish not to spend any money at all.. then you can make your own with some wire/paper, glue and clear plastic wrap.

3. Honor thy Written Word.
   The written word... yes my friends, the only way to truly be a HP fan is to read all the books! And it may sound hypocritical coming from me since I've only read the last one and piece of the sixth one. But if you wish to adopt my train of thought.. it's because Harry Potter is officially over for many people... but not for me because I haven't read all the books yet.. so I'm going to take my time and cherish every last moment =) So go and read all the books over and over again. Become a book collector... each Harry book has like about 3 different covers so you can buy each version of each book. And when you're done with that, you can start buying Harry Potter in each language in was published in and each version of those books until you have the ultimate Harry Potter book collection! And there's no doubt that in the future, you may own something that's worth a fortune and well you got the idea right here on Hindi Bindi! So umm yea don't forget to share the riches with us =D

4. Honor thy Games.
    So the best way to pass time with friends is to play a good old fashioned board game, which can tire out after a while but not with the ultimate twist...HP BOARD GAMES! So to all you HP fans..HP games might just be the only way for you to ever have fun again... it's the only time you can reminisce with Harry, Ron and Hermione after the Deathly Hallows. [Wow that's an awfully depressing train of thought... somebody buy me HP Scene It plz =) lolz]. So there are games like HP Guess who? which should be more fun than the original and well you don't need the game to play this. My friends and I shall try this when we aren't busy, but yes even though you don't have the game set up, you can still play and it includes more than 2 players as well [Bonus!]; ok all you have to do is keep your character in your mind and have your friends ask you yes/no questions about said person and with each response you give them they should be closer to the answer =D. I love Clue so there's no doubt that WE [yes I mean you =P] will absolutely be addicted to HP Clue. HARRY POTTER MONOPOLY! That should mean a lot to you =P There are also games like Hp Scene it as well as electronic games for PSP's and Xbox and the whole lot... So throw all that other crap away and start having some real fun with sum HP games =).

5. Honor thy Children.
    Ok, well you look like a true HP fan and so does your pet... but what about your child?? Or any little children you may know for a matter of fact?  YOU CAN'T NEGLECT THE CHILDREN! THEY ARE OUR FUTURE!!!  So take in the children, show them love.. show them Harry Potter =). So dress your child up like true HP fans as well, using the guided instructions from Part 1. The prefered choice for many people is to dress their children like Harry, but that's so cool...walking around with a little Harry!! So invest in your child's closet plz! If you don't have a child as yet... but you have one on the way... honor your child by bestowing on him/her a name from the book. Luna and Hermione are two very pretty names for girls and who wouldn't want to be as intelligent and witty as Hermione? So I doubt your child will hate you in the future, and once they find out where they got their awesome name from and why and what it means, they'll truly love you. I mean a name from Harry Potter pwns a name like Edward any day. I was going to say Renesmee.. but heck, even my name pwns that!!!

6. Honor thy Skin.
    Why bother to tattoo your boyfriend's name to your body when you can have the magic of HP with you forever instead? So it's a bit extreme, but you must admit... if you have a  tattoo.. you're like the ultimate fan!!! And there are a lot of really pretty tattoos out there for you to choose from... some of them are rite here =) Btw if you're a sissy like me.... a nice Sharpie does wonders as well. So start practising and embracing you inner artist because you will be giving your self HP Tattoos every day!! And plus with a Sharpie you can change it up =D So go get your HP tattoo all you brave ppl out there sigh*

7. Honor thy Accent.
     So you may look, eat, perhaps even smell like a True HP fan.... but the question is... Do you sound like one??  So yes you can't truly be a HP fan without your British accent now can you? YOU CAN'T!! =P So go watch all the movies again and again until you pick up the accent and get a real hang of it. It's easier to talk as either Ron or Hermione since they say distinctive things, such as Ron and his 'Bloddy Hell Harry!'. If you know what I mean. So once you've covered the accent, learn a few quotes and use them in your every day convos, talk in your accent whenever you go out. I've done it once or twice, people usually just think you're from England when you do it, that's why it's important to be wearing your Hogwarts uniform. You must speak the language of Harry Potter!!!

 Once you've covered it all from Part1 to Part 2, I guess we can officially declare you the  ULTIMATE HP FAN! I do believe Congratulations are in order =). I'm so proud of you sniff* For all those who haven't made it as yet.. keep trying you will get there one day. Well it has been a great journey but it will never truly be over, and we will remember it... Always <3

                     So in honour of the end, I leave you with this because it's entirely true:

                                      I'm jealous of the way Ron look at Hermione.

                                I'm jealous of how much and how true Snape loved Lily.

            I'm jealous of how Luna never gave a rats arse of what anyone thought of her.

                                                 I'm jealous of how brave Neville truly is.

      I'm not jealous since I have the same, but I admire how strong and unbreakable their friendship is.

Result: Slytherin/Ravenclaw.

Ok so I got Slytherin twice! Must be Slytherin. So now that you have your house, be a true patriot and wear your house colors all the time!!! Be proud of your house, wear your ties and discriminate against the people that aren't in your house. For hell's sake will I be talking to a Gryfinndor?!!? Hell NO! And well my real school has houses as well and what?! I'm in the green house!! =D So I refer to that as Slytherin and well so should you =). And be sure to wear your scarves to sporting events... most preferably quidditch.

2. Honor thy Dress code.
    So to wear a tie and a scarf and to forsake all those who are not in your house is not enough!!! You will never get anywhere by just following #1! You need to honor the dress code, wear your robes man! Ok so that may be asking too much. I don't expect you to go and order an authentic Harry Potter robe in your designated house color to wear all the time?!?! I expect you to make one at least?! =P So what you need to do, is get outfits that resemble the uniform or that are at least inspired by HP. Remember to flaunt your house color and stick to it, you cant be a Hufflepuff today and a Ravenclaw tomorrow, that's unacceptable. So wear your HP outfits to all events and if you have pajamas then even better.


I cannot be stopped
I made boys ones too
Because they only had
One option 

3. Honor thy Pets.
      Ok yea,  so you look like a true wizard or witch, very good.... but what about your four legged friend?!?! 2 if you own a bird?!!? How can you be a fan if your pet isn't a fan?!?! You people are despicable! Every wizard needs his magical familiar, so if you don't have a pet go, and buy one!! So once you have a 'familiar', make them into the next HP ultimate fan, dress them up in full wizarding apparel and then the two of you are ready to hit the streets, or anywhere for a matter of fact.

4. Honor thy Party wear.
     So even Harry, Hermione and Ron didn't wear robes all the time. So yea, you need a break from the uniform... definitely! You can't be seen in that when partying... unless you have a slutty version. So for all my guys out there ... and my girls who don't want to dress slutty... the answer is simple. HARRY POTTER T-SHIRTS!!! T- shirts are fun and casual, and nothing beats a good HP t-shirt and nothing says you're a fan more than that! So when you're not wearing your uniform, wear a HP tee, and well you're partying... relax.... you don't need to support your house all the time and be a rival 24/7! Socialize, dance with your other mates in your HP tee.

WWHD - What would Harry do?

5. Honor thy Food.
    So you're pretty much almost a great HP fan, you surely look like one on the surface... but what about on the inside?! Are you eating muggle food? =S Dirty!!! So you need to eat like a wizard.... but what do wizards and witches eat and drink besides pumpkin juice?! So for more info read up on this @ and And well I don't know about you, but I don't eat beef and other things which are mentioned, so here's what you'll do.... eat food that looks like HP. Since you probably can't eat what is actually eaten by them in the book and movie, you shall eat food that is made to celebrate the existence of HP such as decorated cupcakes! If you eat anything else, you will be lying to nobody but yourself, because us,TRUE NEARLY ULTIMATE HP FANS KNOW THE TRUTH.. we can see through the lies =P.

6. Honor thy Jewelry.
    Didn't I tell you to dress like a wizard/witch?! Why are you still wearing your normal bling man?! Throw that stuff away, and go and buy yourself some real jewelry...a.k.a. some Harry Potter jewelry. So once you buy your HP bling, which are probably based on different details and aspects from the movie or are made by creative minds... wear it! Especially to parties because you need to dress up and look HAWTT =D lolz.

7. Honor thy Physical house.
     So yes, you need to honor your physical house as well. Your own dwelling... is it far from a common room? Does it not look like the Hogwarts castle itself? If your answer to both of those questions is YES, then you are doing a horrible job. So yes it's great to look like a HP fan/ Hogwarts student... but you need to live the life as well, you can't wake up with your muggle paint and muggle pillows?!!? Potter that shit yo! [yes I had to go gansta ok =P] What you wanna do is remodel your house, well that's kinda hard and a bit extreme, so you just want to redecorate. Get HP themed pillows and fabric for curtains. Throw out your metro furniture and get replace them with  that which resembles the furniture from the movie. Get wall hangings and rugs, replace the pictures of your friends and family in your home with that of the cast. [nooooo that's not crazy at allll....lolz]. So only then can you live like a wizard or at least feel like you're living in the wizarding world. If you want to create secret passage ways in your house or turn your study into an exact replica of Dumbledore's office.. be my guest.

8. Honor thy Nails.
    Ok, so you pretty much look like a pro, with your clothes and your jewelry... but what about your nails?!?! I'm sure they feel rejected?! =O So that's why you should treat them to a Potter makeover as well! Paint your nails in your house color or do HP decals on them. Be creative, you use your hands for pretty much everything! So pretty much everyone will see what you do to your nails. Use your skills to show the world how much of a HP fan you are... the power to do that is at your finger tips =P.

Sigh* young grasshoppers, despite having done all this, you are still not the ultimate Harry Potter fan, but here's what... Follow this for now and I shall continue to help you and post more helpful tips to aid you on your journey to the 15th, because here at Hindi Bindi... we care about YOU! <3 ... And we love ourselves some HP =D
