Her Name is (female)BOND

There was a post on January 21 by Insignia. The title was “My Name is BOND”. We have heard in many movies the sentences “My Name is Bond. James Bond”. After reading that post's title only, I thought how come a girl writes her name is BOND. Does she fancy herself as a female James Bond?

This post is for readers like Insignia and other females. But men are also welcome to read.

So you have seen the James Bond movie, Die Another Day, for the umpteenth time. Do you sometime think you wish you were like Giacinta “Jinx” Johnson, played in that movie by Halle Berry? Do you wish to be like a feminine James Bond? Don’t worry. Help is on the way.

There is a spy school in Las Vegas for females. In that school, they teach women all the skills that sexy, beautiful women do in the movies with ease. The course is not a long drawn one. One long weekend only….Thursday to Sunday. They teach you how to make a perfect drink, gamble in big casinos with confidence, handle and fire various firearms, and engage in military type hand to hand combat. They even teach you seductive dancing. Here is the schedule:

"• Thursday

Martini mixology: learn how to mix the perfect martini and other divine cocktails.

Private lessons from a croupier: learn the ins and outs of the tables like a pro. (A croupier is a person at a gambling table who collects and pays bets.)

• Friday

Elite special agent training: Navy SEAL developed hand-to-hand combat lessons. This is no “self defense” class. Learn the real deal using the system that U.S. government uses to train their top agents in the field!

A delish little lunch break and then...

Advanced seduction skills: Learn from a pro some very exotic dance moves that will leave you breathless!

A fabulous dinner with a Sommelier teaching us to pair the perfect wines. (A Sommelier is a trained and a knowledgeable wine professional.)

• Saturday

The most challenging day of your life!

Learn to handle and shoot all kinds of firearms from Glock pistols to Uzis and M16s.

Use your wiles to avoid enemy agents: Equip yourself with all the secret skills you’ll need to become the ultimate spy - ready for action at any time. After today, no silver screen agent will have anything on you!

Followed by Glam-o-rama time – the best ‘girls’ party ever! Have your hair and make up done by the pros while we enjoy fabulous cocktails and a yummy dinner en suite.

All dressed up and nowhere to go? No way! We’re off to a top Las Vegas hotspot with VIP entry for the newest crop of Spy Girls.

• Sunday

Breakfast and “debrief” time. Today is just for you! After a tasty breakfast and group debriefing, some choose to play golf or go to the spa, while others prefer to relax by the pool. Whatever you choose, you will likely be wearing a smile thinking of all the fun you had".

The price tag is a little too expensive, in my opinion.

The main purpose is to give the students self confidence and self esteem to face this world.

I don’t know if there are such schools in India for training female James Bonds. But if such a school opens in India, how many females will be interested to study there? No, I was not recruited by any school to do a feasibility study. I was just wondering. That is all.

If such a school opens in India, I could become a visiting professor to take classes on couple of subjects.


  1. Interseting piece of information...woman are as it is diffucult to handle..wonder why to make them more!!

  2. Thanks for your comments Nazish. And, welcome back. Do you think women are difficult to handle? That is an interesting point.

  3. I would like to attend the school :P sounds like fun LOL :)

    @Nazish - ROFL...we are not that difficult if you take the time to understand, you see. :D

  4. Thanks for your comments Titaxy. You don't have to go all the way to Las Vegas. Their Branch is in New York also.

  5. A 4 day crash course to become a female James Bond eh?

    Hmmm, James overrated relic from a bygone era.
    What does he really have going for him besides the gadgets that Q gives him?
    Just a couple of overplayed one liners - "Bond, James Bond."
    Also, "Vodka Martini, shaken not stirred."
    Gee thanks!

    Agent 007. Yeah whatever.
    That's a bit small don't you think?

    You can call me Double Oh Nine and a Half.
    It's at least 9.5 but I never measured.

  6. Thanks for your comments Jason.

    Hey let's face the fact. "Bond, James Bond" sounds manly and sexy. When you say "One, Delta One" sounds very weak. And, now you are a professor of linguistics at Georgetown University?. It sounds even weaker. What do you teach? English 101 for basketball players?.

  7. seems to be fun all the way for women:)

  8. Thanks for your comments Antarman. It is fun and educational also.

  9. I would certainly be interested in the fire-arms, pistols etc courses! Rest is too girly for me..I never liked James Bond or his women. I think Bond would get bored of me ..and I might poison his wine/martini :-D

    Oh & as visiting professor, what courses do you intend to teach?? ;-)

  10. Hahahaha....But you got the reason why my title was "My name is BOND" :-)

    The course seems interesting. I would definitely learn some combating skills.

    Oh yes, you wanted to be a visiting professor. May I know what subjects you would want to teach? :-)

  11. Thanks for your comments lostworld. I am glad you are interested in fire arms and pistols.

    I know a few things about gambling in Vegas and wine selection. I can take classes on these two subjects.

  12. Thanks for your comments Insignia. I know the reason why your title was "My Name is BOND". That is why I said (in the first paragraph) "after reading your post's title only I thought......"

    I am glad you are interested in combating skills.

    I would like to teach how to gamble and how to select the right wine for the type of food at the table.

  13. hmmm, interesting..when one has nothing else to do but to blow off money; then the whole class is fun..:)

  14. Thanks for your comments Neha. You have a point. But I am surprised. I thought you would be the first person to sign up for combat skills.

  15. I wish I had so much of money to blow off...sigh! poor me....

  16. Those two are really important....winning lots and drinking right!! :-)

    Hope you get a chance to teach :-)

  17. wow such schools are really there!!! sounds cool... if a school opens in India... I definately would be the first to take admisson :D

  18. That was an informative post!

    Well I don't think there are any such institutes in India!
    Nway, the concept of these insti Sounds cool!

  19. Thanks for your comments Neha. I would pray God that you make enough money to "blow off" on things like these.

  20. Thanks for your comments Insignia. Winning lots and drinking right. I like that.

  21. Thanks for your comments Rajlakshmi. I am glad you are interested in such a school.

  22. Thanks for your comments Jaunty. I am glad you find this concept cool.

  23. i am most interested in the exotic dance classes...cant someone just come up with this kinda thing in India...

  24. Thanks for your comments Sulagna. And, welcome to my blog. Exotic dance classes? That is my forte after gambling and wine tasting.

    Sulagna, please visit here as often as you can. Thanks.

  25. mixing cocktails sounds so much fun.. I would opt for that and using all those cool gadgets.

  26. Which courses would that be? Am curious.

  27. Thanks for your comments Shruthi. I am glad you like mixing cocktails. I know a thing or two about it.

  28. Thanks for your comments Radha. The courses I would like to teach is gambling and wine selection.

  29. Meandered in from Neha's

    A weekend to be a Bond girl ? actually a Bond ! For a price anything is game in Sin city huh ?

    Let me make an exit before some of you girls start using those Glocks and Kalashnikovs :-)

  30. Thanks for your comments Madhu. And, welcome to my blog. Yes, money can buy anything in Vegas.

    Madhu, please visit here as often as you can. Thanks.

  31. If i am not wrong i think this art was taught to the girls in ancient India because Royal forces used female spies.The schedule you have put up here is sure very interesting.Hand to hand combat and learning the firearms is cool and you as a teacher hmmm super cool.

  32. Very interesting post...I never knew of such a crash-course :)....though I think 4 days are too less.
    I have never heard about such schools in India! But yeah, one should learn some combat-skills for self-defence :)

  33. Thanks for your comments Kavita. Also, appreciate your providing the info about the Royak forces using female spies. I did not know until now.

  34. Thanks for your comments Varsha. And, welcome back after a long time. Were you on a long vacation?

    I am sure combat skills for self defence will be very useful.

  35. I am quite late this time was away on a vacation, a pilgrimage I would say. Post was interesting but these kind of things I would rather stay away.
