How do I loathe dee? Let me count the ways...

So, I was labeled a geek...shun off as an outcast...teased about for not having the the spunk...someone even mentioned that I need to be 're-educated'...

And the crime that I'm found guilty of...

...having never gone to clubs before, for clubbing...

I for one, have never found clubbing to be a source of entertainment, or for social net-working...Some might debate that clubbing are considered one of the leisure activities, a form of escapism and release....But I beg to differ...

True, life can be hard...so you could want some fun...but clubbing has never been on my list of 'fun stuffs' to do...and allow me to enlist why...

1. It is freaking expensive...
Especially for you guys who has been cursed with the Y-chromosome...bringing your X-X chromosome ladies for a date...To begin with, the entry fees is already high...why should I dig deep into the pits of my pocket, for RM35...just to listen to disco-electronic music (which was never to my liking, by the way)...when I can easily pay RM20 (student price) for a Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra concert, or even a live band...and its 2 hours of pure entertainment?...

And even if entry pass was free, I'll even have to pay till my nose bleed...because my drinks will cost much more than a McValue Meal at McDonald...which part of this was fun so far?

2. Promised of reduced hearing...
Do I hear you yell, "But clubbing is FUNNnnnnnnnn..."...Take note : "YELL" is the golden word here...Even though I've yet to my foot in a club down the street, I know enough...that in clubs, you never talk...neither do you whisper...you yell...shout your voice-box sore...so with the extended yelling, this automatically strips all hope of ever having a decent conversation...throwing it out of the picture altogether...hence, say goodbye to human interaction...

3. Its brimmed with potential sex offenders...
[Note : Now, before any guys hurl a kitchen knife at me...let me assure you that when I say, 'sex offenders', it does not apply to guys alone...girls are very much guilty of that as well...there you go, I've said it...happy?]

The way I understand it...Guys seem to think that chicks at clubs are the hottest of the town...Chicks, all seems to have the mentality that guys from the clubs are swarmed with cash, and drives a Lamborghini...

But even if I was wrong, the extend of the crowd in clubs are so overwhelming,...it is difficult to walk through a club house, without being touched...weather one means to or not...

4. People puke on you...or there is puke all over the place...
Need I elaborate further?

So, why should I find myself in such a torturing situation, when I can jump to Tesco, get a few bottles of wine and glasses, and enjoy it with my gal pals at home...where decent conversations are applicable...a good laugh would exist...a certain warmth in the mood, without the techno music beating at every pulse?...Seriously, who needs clubs?...In fact, there are times, I'm happy spending time alone..it gives me some moment to clear my mind...and allows me to dwell on leisure activities that I enjoy...reading would be one...Counter-Strike would be another...

Blehhhh, club people, lol.

I know for sure they are not a part of my crowd. In fact they are the complete opposite. I guess I can unofficially affiliate myself with the geeky crowd. Luckily, in college I can find many of them easily and hang out.

We play video games and talk about our specific interests and whatnot. I can easily talk with my friends about movies, web design, video game design, programming, music, food, and any obscure activities I enjoy.

I observe the "clubbing" type of people and they are soooooo boooooooring! Their conversations seem to lack interesting topics and any meaty-ness.

Guy: Hey! Wanna go clubbing, girl?

Girl: Yeah! Sounds awesome! I'll bring some friends too!

Guy: Cool, cool. Nothing like getting wasted and grinding, huh?

Girl: Yeah, yeah! Like, totally.

At this point, they will share past stories of drinking with their friends and how drunk they got. After that...

Guy: Ok, baby. It's been fun. We have to do this again sometime.

Girl: Yeah. I totally enjoyed this. By the way, do you have Facebook?

Guy: Hell yeah I got Facebook. Who doesn't have Facebook?

Guy and Girl: I LOOOOOOOOVE FACEBOOK!

The end.

Emily, you make your points well. Very well written piece.

Didn't realise Tesco had got as far as Malaysia, their plans for world domination continue. One day, there will be McDonalds, Tesco and Microsoft, all other business' will have been swallowed up.
