a long weekend ..

this series is inspired by M's weekend blog. hence the initials for names :)


my weekend started thursday mid morning actually when i decided to go back home halfway from the commute to office. formals are a sordid affair anyway but when you get soaked in the rain, you just can't wait to get out of them. and the office might not have been a good place for that. so i came home, made mixed popcorns (chilly surprise with butter pepper) and a big mug of tea. finished my work for the day and promptly applied for a day off on friday. now all office goers agree that there is possibly nothing else which quite matches the feeling.

A and I celebrated N's (S or P for those who know him better) birthday at night. very simple affair - a butter scotch cake, all the leftover alcohol in the house plus doctor's brandy for the birthday boy (the cold spares no one you see) and yes some vanilla ice cream to top the night/early morning. and all the silly things that come on tv late night.


a very happy morning indeed. chatted with friends, played badminton and then food and sleep. went for "salt" at night and came back home to finish yet another (new) bottle of rum. and all the silly things that come on tv late night again.


mom n dad arrived. and the dog too. huge effort picking them up from two different places. "why?" is out of scope of this blog. but then watching the dog check out the town out of the taxi window more than made up for all of it. :)


just stayed home. mom's food and tv and football with the dog. he is pretty good i must say even though he doesn't understand all the rules. and yeah all the kids in the building visited just to see the dog. will post a picture of him in the next blog. :)


  1. so the information provided by roger ebert regarding jolie ......was it useful? or redunant?

    and yes, informing your boss abt friday off is one of the best feelings. at work. :)

  3. @Soulfull Rhytm: Yes. Yes definitely useful. Mr ebert was right on his money. We verified the fact from all angles and couldn't agree more. :)

    @Madhu: I got that madhu .. "at work. :)". Come to think of it, it did cross my mind when i wrote it .. ;)
