Things are not too good here. Usually I am not the one for admitting when I am low. But I was today. For no particular reason. A regular mood swing which lasted a while. More than its usual while. Can't say I have tided it over. But at least I tried. A long walk followed by a late night shower followed by a 'happy' movie with ice cream.
About the movie. Liked it. Sweet yet not too sweet. Not too deep but not cliched too. Sincere and loaded with good intentions. An easy smile is rare on a bleak Monday night and it made me smile. So Happythankyoumoreplease. Still don't get the title though. But the movie is lovable anyway :)
Now for tomorrow's plan - no work. Food. Love. Sleep. I'll do what I can.

Last night was awesome. Beautiful music. Karsh Kale + Shilpa Rao + Warren Mendosa. Got crazy drunk post the concert. Danced like drunk people do. To some music I wouldn't care about if I was not drunk. Getting drunk is the sweetest excuse. :)

Finished all that I had to do today - read the newspaper back to back, bathed the dog, washed all my clothes, put on fresh sheets on the bed, done with the grocery. Got myself four cans of beer. Cans - because I don't have a bottle opener and someone told me it's gross to open bottles with your teeth. (Even though I think it's one of my secret skills). So I was two beers down and was about to eat - a spread of home made chicken curry and rice. A regular Sunday until now. That's when I decided to watch a movie - "Chungking Express" it was to be. What followed was the most fun I could have had on an all-by-myself Sunday. Turned out to be the most whimsical, sweetest piece of cinema I had seen yet. Loved everything about it - there is an unabashed innocence about it's characters and it's totally charming. Reminds you of all the silliness we are capable of when that heartbreak thing happens. Also when the love thing happens. :). I am sure everyone has tried it - at least once.
The soundtrack is still stuck in my head. Listening to 'California Dreamin' on repeat as I type. It's a glorious night outside.

So I put on some music and now I can't sleep. Or I couldn't sleep so I put on some music. Don't remember in what order but now I can't sleep at all. And I don't mean it in a bad way - not at all. Too much going on in my mind - not all connected, not all coherent. But at the heart of it all I feel alive and I register everything. And no I am not on drugs. :) . So I was saying .. yeah, the moment feels like a slow unspooling of all my summer memories. Also someone forgot to switch off their lights in the next building. I have this sudden urge to record everything that's happening right now. Just gave up - there is not much happening out there. The world is asleep and so is my dog. He makes these twitching movements as if he is running in his dreams .. chasing someone maybe. I wonder if it's mice or cats or maybe it's that golden haired beauty he meets on the street. I think this would make a great short film.
Okay. Guess "the slow unspooling of all my summer memories" was a promising start but then I went off track. It's a little like .. you see your life for what it was/is and accept everything. Love everything. Fear nothing. Like if that's possible at all, or maybe it is but only in fleeting moments like this. Anyway now I can't go back there .. maybe a subject for another post. Looking forward to life in general. And no, I am not on drugs :)
Hmmm. Just in case this post might have stopped making sense already, I should seriously reconsider falling asleep. :)
P.S: Last weekend I bought a shining new pair of jogging shoes to go with my shining new resolution to get fit. Again :). Also I am real proud of my new dvd acquisitions.

No questions asked of life. No plans made - not even the ones that shift forever.
Been hurtling from one day to another with monstrous efficiency. Waking, working, eating sleeping and doing it all over again, day in, day out. I have become quite the 'worker'. Maybe even beginning to like doing what I do. I am very sure I do like the people I work with - some really simple sweet people and some really whimsical funny people who respond to every crisis with a bad joke. So I get by alright.:)
But I would like to restore my work life balance to normal. And It doesn't look like its happening soon. But until then I guess it's alright. :)
P.S: Desperately need to catch a movie tomorrow.
