Refreshing weekends
Saturday began brunch with fun gang @ Egg Factory...fairly decent egg offerings! :)
Then on to financial planning for a friend @ ICICI - which I * thought * stayed open from 8 to 8 as their ads used to suggest - apparently timings have now changed only till 2 on a sat!! (Mid day traffic on the weekend is KILLING!)
Dragged for a bite of lunch with said friend, after which we took a trip to police station to get the bike which was towed!
Onward to another friends place to see his dogs - had time only to pop in and pop out almost immediately! Why? Had to take another friend shopping for his bday gift.
Was throughly tuckered out by this time, so a pit stop at home was very much warrented!
Friends came next door (garuda swagath) for movie, one of them coaxed me into ditching the movie so that we could heading to Barbeque-Nation for dinner, getting lost, repeatedly, trying to find the way, got there eventually, STUFFED ourselves, got out at 12.30. *restaurant usually closes by 12 -> we were the LAST to leave.
Crazy ideas of either mysore road coffee house or nandi hills for sunrise, when suddenly someone gets the bright idea of wonderla!so they are trying to drag me there come 8 Sunday morning! ...after hitting the sack after 2!! phew!
Luckily sanity (sleep?) prevailed.. and we did a lesuirely dinner at UB city with thunder and lightening in the background.The weather was amazing!
...fun weekends should be like this :)
Only fly in the ointment? Was with 'only friends'! ;)

So, it has been so long that I don't even remember how anymore..
...but I'm guessing this is a bit like riding a bicycle, with a lil effort I'm sure it will come back to me!

How you been peeps?

Me? Work in Bangalore is pretty much all-consuming. Have a healthy group of fun friends (this would work better if I could figure out how to post pictures here!) have discovered a website meant for travelers (www.couchsurfing.com) - love it cause it provides an opportunity to meet local people in almost all countries/cities in addition to facilitating costfree acco whistle traveling!
Have also made a bunch of friends through another unconventional (?) route - flights! Usually when you meet someone at the airport/flight even if you have a good conversation you don't really expect to keep in touch later, right? Strangely these people (met at different times!) seem to want to keep in touch.. and have now gone on to become friends!
Trips : went with a bunch of friends on a road trip (bikes and cars) to pondicherry - was FUN! ...only regret? most of the time was spent eating/drinking and my take is that if I'm travelling outta town I _would_ like to see the place a lil! :-S ah well.
New interests : a pal recently gifted me a guitar. Yup, a GUITAR! me, who is completely tone deaf hopes to take this up fairly soon!
New developments : Might move outta home, and live closer to work - am super excited at the prospect, cause I've _NEVER_ lived anywhere but with parents/family! Moving closer to work means cutting down on travel time - which can in turn be used for FUN activities eg:learning to play the guitar! (not to mention it will be far easier to host people/parties at my place!)
Agenda : Lose weight! I'm sick and tired of talking bout it, so this time around I'm putting my money where my mouth is, literally!! :)

So, whats happening with you?
