So, the first real weekend after the first week at work, and I was all set to live it up! Saturday morning, at 9 o’ clock I stepped out of my house and felt that maybe I should cancel all my plans and run back home. We (Delhiites) talk about heat all the time but Saturday was crazy! 45 degress celsius!! And I, being myself, was still out the entire day! And all over Delhi. First I went to Campus. Not that I had any real work; someone else wanted to go and I thought it’d be nice to feel the place again. But what I felt was just fireballs dropping on my poor skin.
It was also a friend’s birthday, so I couldn’t come back home. We had lunch plans. So I was back to the south, went to Pizza Hut after really long and had some good food. But it was the dessert that made me forget all about the heat. Hot chocolate cake with perfect chocolate sauce and vanilla ice-cream with it. Aah! (Sorry, I’ve forgotten the name of that thing. It was Ivory and something something.) I don’t know if any of you remember, but it was the same set of people with whom I’d completely checked-out a super-duper hot guy at Costa Coffee last year. Sadly enough, now that we were all single, we couldn’t spot any hot guys this time! 😦
Did see some extremely weird men though. And I shall not even get into describing them.
Lunch lasted a little longer than expected and so I got a little late for the next set of friends with whom I had to catch a movie. Ocean’s 13 this time – one of the many thirds of a trilogy that have come out this season. Again, this was a let down too. I mean, George Clooney still remains hot but the movie loses its subtlety. There was nothing spectacular in the way they executed their plan and Al Pacino was also just okay-ish.
I felt like my social self after really long this Saturday. After stepping out of the theatre, I kept running into acquaintances from all over. It was fun.
Hung around with friends for some more time and reached home at about 7:30 p.m., only to go out for dinner with family. The day was perfect…the only spoilsport being the heat.
Also turned out that of all the people from college who’ve gone ‘corporate’, it’s only me who’s so busy already. People don’t have work! But I guess it’s better to have something to do than to stare blankly at computer screens.
Sunday morning was my best driving session till date. After what had happened last Monday, I had not touched the car for 5 days and was quite sure that I’d never be able to drive. But thankfully I went back more confident and drove well. My turns were smoother, I had better control of the car, and I was happy. 🙂
This was followed by a late breakfast at American Diners which was a rather eventful outing. Now I know what the fun in making men feel jealous is like. He could not stop glancing towards me and Varun and boy did I enjoy myself or what! 😛 😉
From there we went shopping for Varun’s girlfriend but did not buy anything. I came back home for a nice nap and went out in the evening again. This time it was to shop for myself….all expenses sponsored by my dearie brother! 😀
The mall looked more like a mela, and the queue outside all trial rooms looked like railway reservation counter queues. I’m so sure I’m not going shopping on a Sunday evening again. But I did manage to get a few shirts for myself….and two of them are in different shades of green. 😀 😀
I had thought that I’d behave myself in office but who was I kidding! People already know me for my beautiful language, my sad jokes, my so-called uncontainable never-ending laughter sprees, and of course, my volume levels. But never mind! I have absolutely no issues being the entertainer. :))
It got quite cold in office today and all my arguments about how the temperature is very well maintained there got washed away.
I know that the length of this post will not validate this…but it was a fuck-tiring day. And that because I didn’t work today. Sitting through presentations (FOR 8 HOURS!) is such a bloody irritating thing! MS PowerPoint should just die!

You meant Ebony & Ivory, I guess.Ocean’s Thirteen.. well yes. But it was certainly better than 12. But damn it where the fuck is all the complexity in the plot? I misses it. I was disappointed there. But it was still a decent movie. I can’t say it was a let-down overall.
“MS powerpoint should just die”….that was hilarious! I am LMAO …u write nice 🙂
HOT it was….sadly even I was out in the sun almost through the weekend but thankfully the AC of my car works well so I was saved somewhat!!!”MS powerpoint should just die”…hilarious!Nothing like spending the weekend around people you care about and doing things you love! I remember when I joined the BIG BAD corporate world for close to 2 months each weekend was like a celebration!!Enjoy the ride!

Oh your weekend sounded like fun! :DAnd SO busy??I wanna goto DU again.. Waaah, this sucks! :XOh and just realised, when you say I did manage to get a few shirts for myself.., that means you wear only those now.. ungh! Sad!! 😦MS powerpoint should just dieLMAO, I so agree with you! Saw a gazillion of those today, with almost all my teachers giving speeches, that I wish it too..
Green is my favourite colour and very recently, I bought a green shirt too.:-) Yum! I am longing to have that pizza….Won’t be going to a mall until 14th July. So, I guess I’ll have to wait till then to taste “Ebony and Ivory”.
Whoa, what a fantastic typo.I meant missed*, of course. 😐
Yeah, Rohit’s right. Must’ve been Ebony & Ivory, or that’s how the phrase goes, right?And my busy days are here too. Left office at 10:30pm last night. And it’s supposed to get even tougher in the coming week. But, it’s great nonetheless. I don’t feel useless anymore. :PThe weather’s finally become better. Today is probably the coolest day in the last few weeks. Ah, hope it rains soon.
RohitYES, that was the name! Thank you. :)Yeah, the complexity was not there and I “misses” the subtlety too. 😛RichaThanks. 🙂B.People with air conditioned cars are not allowed to put ‘hot’ in caps. :DI’m enjoying but gonna be staying home this weekend. I need a break. 🙂DKLooks like everybody was out that Saturday. :)How did you like the movie?IshaniNo, it doesn’t mean that I wear only those now. And it is not sad either. Now I know that there’s shitloads of variety in shirts too. Exploring that now. :DHow’s it going there? Started with classes?SinjiniPat yourself on the back for buying that shirt. Welcome to the club! :))What’s special about 14th July?JayantYes, Ebony & Ivory it is!True – being busy is any day better than not having anything to do. We’ve known that feeling long and enough. :)It rained today.
Actually, we’re planning to watch HP5 on 14th July.It releases on the 13th.:-)
SinjiniOhhh…now I get it. :)Have fun!
