Saturday was eventful! Oh it definitely was!!
The morning started off at the gym at around 8:30.
For a change, there were only 3 people in the gym. Usually its crowded with a few hundred. The workout was good.
Lunch at noon followed by bowling at Amoeba. I was my usual pathetic self at bowling.
In the meanwhile, the comp guy came and tried something with my CD drive. He finally seems to have figured out whats wrong with the drive and said he would come back the next day. Lets hope so.
And then Chilli, Inder and I went to Casa Piccola. Waited there for the Devil. Finally the Devil arrived in a blazer and interrupted our conversation about we being losers et al.
So, the Devil, Chilli, Inder and I were conversing about…hmmm…well, about a lot of things. “The” Lavender was there to keep Chilli and me very much engrossed in the conversation with the Devil and Inder.
And then Inder suddenly shouts “Oowww” when an unlit cigarette touches his hand. Inder then immediately realises that there was nothing that burnt him and he abruptly stops himself from screaming and running water over his arm.
The conversations continued interspersed with a lot of Lavender. Then in walks the raincoat man. The guy was draped in a raincoat and it wasn’t raining. Upon looking at this completely covered dude, Chilli asked whether it was raining that heavily.
I burst out laughing.
The raincoat man walked past too eager to prevent the minuscle moisture in the air from settling on him.
By the time we were done with dinner it was well beyond 11 pm. Then comes up the urge to have coffee somewhere and to sit around and talk. Well, Bangalore not exactly being like LA or New York city, its kinda tough to find coffee at that time of the night. Then the beautiful idea strikes of going to the railway station to have coffee. My addendum to that idea was to have coffee on the railway platform, but the idea was summarily rejected by the rest.
So we land at the railway station around 11:30 or so. (Land at the railway station….hmmm).
The coffee was there. Nice and strong. We took a few snaps with Inder’s camera. The camera also lured certain unwanted men…er…women….er…whatever.
Anyway, so the “whatevers” started hanging around us, trying to get their snap taken and wanting us to buy them cigarettes.
We managed to shoo them away. There ends the story. Suddenly Inder and the Devil began to laugh hysterically for god knows what. Chilli and I didn’t notice anything funny. I think Inder and the Devil hallucinate a lot sometimes.
From the railway station we then stopped near Inder’s place, with one more round of Polo mints. Some more snaps were taken. Some more conversations made. The best snap was the one in the detective pose, with our collars raised. The Devil in Azhar style. Reached home at around 12:30 in the night and finished reading one of Saki’s plays by around 2:30 am.
Sunday was already here.
Sunday was already here, like I said earlier.
Went for a Playback rehearsal in the morning at 11:00 am. It was good, although I didn’t fully enjoy the session. Probably something at the back of my mind needed immediate attention. Went to office from there.
Then met up Chilli and the Devil at IIM-B. Chilli and the Devil did a lot of CD burning. Also verified that my CDs were still around
We then went to RIUS, some kinda coffee lounge on the ring road. The sandwich was lousy. The conversation was centred, again, around us being losers in a particular field. It was a lot of fun. It was very funny as well.
This thread of conversation continued right until I reached home.
Well, thats about what has happened today till now. Lets see what the later part of the evening holds for me.
Tomorrow is a holiday for me. Tomorrow is not here yet.
