Today, it is 4 years since the day I met The Dude.
Today, I complete 5 years of work.
Today, my weekend gets over, because tomorrow, I leave for Zurich.
Anyway, there is no point to this post. I am blogging because I don’t want to think about my travel really. I am useless like that, have I mentioned? I totally dislike travelling when I am doing it alone, doing it for work, and doing it to a totally new place where I don’t know anybody. Which is very funny because of a couple of reasons. One, because I love travelling when it is with The Dude, for a vacation or something, or when I am going home to mom and dad. And two, because when i was younger, I found it very cool, the whole concept of seeing new places alone, with no one to rush you around, where you could walk around at your own pace, to wherever you want to. And probably sit on a bench on the bank of River Rhine, sip your coffee, and watch ducks swimming on the calm waters.
Except when I actually was doing that last November, I was totally cranky, and calling up The Dude on my super expensive Matrix phone, and whining about how much I missed him, and hated being in the so called beautiful Switzerland without him. And that Basel is hardly Switzerland didn’t help matters one bit. But this time I am going to the super-hyped-DDLJ-Zurich. But it is just as bugging.
On a different note, I am trying to follow Indian Idol 5. I have followed most of the first 4 seasons. And every time I got bugged with who the public voted for and gave up watching the show towards the end. This time I am bugged right from the beginning. So for all you know, I will stop watching even earlier. Also, I haven’t watched one movie after Karthik calling Karthik. Sad, isn’t it? But I don’t know why we have gotten totally lazy and avoid stepping out in the sunny afternoons during weekends. So no movies.
What else? Oh yes. We took a pretty big step in life the day before yesterday. I will plug in the details as things proceed. And no, we’re not having a baby. Tough huh, I have to start giving disclaimers about this for every conversation I have these days. I mean recently, I told a colleague I didn’t want to travel for more than week, and she asked me if I was pregnant. And then the Dude tells his friend he has some good news to share, and he asks if we were having baby. Seems to be the only thing people perceive as good these days, so I am clarifying beforehand. But quite frankly, this other good thing is also quite big and makes me happy, so I thought of mentioning it anyway. I owe it to you all, after all the ranting and whining for the past few weeks!
Right now we are watching Scream 3 on TV and I am done packing too. I am travelling pretty light, which is good because that makes it obvious that I am not off for long. But when I started this post, I was watching Life in a Metro, The Dude was out to pick up Sprite for our pseudo Saturday night, and it was yesterday evening. But then I stopped the post because he returned. So now, I had to replace a lot of ‘tomorrows’ with ‘todays’. The rest is pretty much the same.
Anyway, I will stop now, and post this, because the movie is getting even more interesting, and scarier. Which is one reason why I am not concentrating on it completely. And then there is a bit of packing yet to be done. Oh, and I will be pretty active on the net the next week, because that’s what I do when I am away from home. That is, if I have the time and energy after the trainings and all. Let’s see. You guys have a great weekend and a greater week ahead.
What? I did say there was no point to the post, didn’t I?
