Team outing...

We are all back from the team outing that took place last weekend. We all went off to a place on the outskirts of Bangalore and it was really great. The resort, though unassuming at first, was really good. There was this amazing swimming pool surrounded by stone pillars all done up in old art! And the bar was situated in a place that could be accessed by taking a swim on the pool. This was such an incredibly interesting experience, to take a swim and have a beer at the same time.

Also, there was this place where we could all play a game of Table Tennis. Catching up on TT after so many years was great. Also, there was great food to follow.

It was a very good time and have some great fotos for that...will be putting them up soon.

The weekend is here and it is all the more interesting cause we will be going on a team outing (all expenses borne by the company). Thats the best news and its gonna be good fun hopefully. But there is a bit of bad news also. Anand, who is going to be here next weekend cannot stay for the weekend, cannot actually stay. He is just going to be here only on friday. Damn. Well, lets see how that works out.

Till later.....

The dreaded day is over atlast!! Damn these idiots who went capering around the streets, painting the town a crazy shade of red! Rest In Peace.

Nothing to add to this days blog except that work is pretty hectic now but atleast I have something to do all day. Go back home in the night, sleep dead tired and wake in the morning late to start it all off again.

And a good friend of mine,Renie has started a blog thats kinda different - no words, all images. Check it out at the following link. This was the guy who dreamed about becoming a Marine Biologist, a photographer and what not. He lost his way, but I guess his artistic talents have not been wasted, he has a web-development firm now.


And the good news is that Anand, that "guy who always mixes those amazing drinks" - in Mahesh's words, is going to be here next week. He will be driving down from Chennai with Renie and hopefully they will stay the weekend. Gerald will also turn up, we are hoping for Anoop also to turn up. Manu, forget, hes busy studying!!

February 14th?

Seems like the dreaded, most boring "day" is just around the corner....yes, St.Valentines day!!! It looks like the greeting card manufacturing companies created this day. Who knows if a St.Valentine lived in the past or not. All we know is that this is a day when the male of the species however "unhitched" he may be, has to act all drooly and stupid, buy gifts for his lady love and act all lovey dovey! In fact, in the place where I work, the women have all decided that the guys have to buy them gifts and read out a poem for them!! I can write you a deaths song, if you please! Does this sound good enough?....

Seems three years
Though maybe four
Someone drops dead
Whom i adore
You love someone
There will be grief
The kiss of death
Lips of a thief


A dusty stack
of photographs
Of times I've cried
But mostly laughed
Commit the past
Into blue flame
Acrid smoke
Cowardly shame

Everyone I love is dead (ha-ha)

Life's a game I cannot win
Both good and bad
Must surely end
The mirrors
Always tell the truth
I love myself
For hating you

Those last 2 lines just break my heart!! Damn, love somebody, stay in love, just dont give me a goddamn day to friggin celebrate my love.

Saturday work!!!

I am working this saturday...a real big drag!!! Seems like I have to take inbound calls at work also, which is another bigger drag!!! Well, life goes on and soon, the day will end and I will be a free man until Monday. Can I come into some pretty large inheritance so that I can stop this working and laze around, not having to earn my money. Like Maiden say in Wasting Love,

Maybe one day I’ll be an honest man
Up till now I’m doing the best I can
Long roads, long days,
Of sunrise to sunset, sunrise to sunset

Dream on brother while you can
Dream on sister I hope you find the one
All of our lives covered up quickly by the tides of time

Spend your days full of emptyness
Spend your years full of lonliness
Waisting love in a desperate caress
Rolling shadows of nights

Dream on brother while you can
Dream on sister I hope you find the one
All of our lives covered up quickly by the tides of time

Sands are flowing and the lines are in your hand
In your eyes I see the hunger
And the desperate cry that tears the night

May not have been very apt, but good enought nonetheless....
