Day 204

And the weekend (kind of) starts early. Had an extremely tiring evening last night. For most part of the evening I was holding Purav in the arms because he was getting cranky and didnt want to stay on the floor or the bed. Had to make him listen to some nice retro music before he could calm down. Was so tired that i just crashed in to bed by 11. Since i have got a work off for the next 2 days, i was hoping to sleep till 11-12 today but had to wake up at an unearthly hour of 9:30 because mom was cranky and started cribbing about why we shouldn't sleep till late. This is very strange, because usually this is something that the Dads of the world do that, and when Dad was around, he would always let us sleep till late on our day off from work and school / college. Mums are truly great. It was very nice of one of my closest friend, Chaitanya, come over to meet mum. Later we went to see I hat Luv Stories together. That could have been a nice popcorn flick but turned out to be a damp squib. Came home in the evening and Chaitali, Mom and me were trying to feed Purav but he was constantly howling because he didnt want to eat but just play. Kids, i tell you...
Was eagerly awaiting for the Brazil Vs Netherlands World Cup Quarter final match. All i can say, after watching the match, is that i am shocked, disappointed and absolutely disgusted. Brazil did this in 1998, 2006 and now 2010. Just when one felt that Brazil was all set to win the world cup, they start committing foul, play the worst football and loose. FB statuses of so many of my friends had everyone feeling disappointed. I am pretty sure that the city of Calcutta (who are die hard football and Brazil team fans) must be in mourning. I dont even feel like watching any other matches of the world cup. Yes, Argentina is still there and have always looked a much more stronger team than Brazil but somehow, when Brazil plays, its not just football, its sheer Magic. Just look at the 1994 and 2002 world cups. Well, i guess that's how sport is.
In a while i will go to sleep. Need to catch up on all lost sleep till Sunday. Its going to be a real long long long week.
