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!
