Day 246

My bad luck with Friday the 13th continues. Guess, i spoke, i mean wrote, it too soon. The day started with the routine stuff. People calling in sick. Work piling up. Somehow everything was managed well by me till 3 PM. And suddenly one of the systems conked off and the work i thought would be done today will have to be pended till monday. Then i leave work with a friend who has bought his car to work. So i think to myself, well thats fine, i wont have to go in the local train. But sadly, the radiator starts overheating and then he has to stop the car every 10-15 minutes, fill the nozzle with water, and move. So a journey which ideally should have taken approximately 1 hour, takes almost 90 minutes. Then i reach Metro Cinema to watch Peepli Live. Very well made movie and largely inspired by movies like, Mad City, Main Azaad Hoon and No Man's land. The problem was not with the movie. But the fact that the movie started 15 minutes late and there was a huge crowd outside the door and i had an umbrella, newspapers, food and a chilled diet pepsi can in my hands. I hate waiting. Wait, the ordeal doesnt end. When i come home after the movie, i get a phone from my sister-in-law, that she is waiting out in a restaurant for my mom's chauffeur and his phone is switched off and he is no where to be seen. The first thing that strikes me, maybe there was an accident. So i rush with Mom and Uncle Scrooge from Home to the Chowpatty Beach to see what has happened. Fortunately the car was there but the driver was not. So i rush home to get the keys asking Scrooge to wait near the car, and we get to know that the driver is finally contacted us and is coming home. And the most sad part in all of this is, i was sincerely hoping, today, of all the days in the year, i would be with someone else :( :(

Well, right now, i am weary, hungry and sad as well. Come on guys, i am a human being and even i have feelings and even i am prone to all the human feelings that anyone else would have in my place.
Fuck this world makes the most simple things, complex.

Love you everyone(Specially one person).

  2. The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia, frigga meaning "Friday" and triskaidekaphobia (or paraskevidekatriaphobia) being a word derived from the concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή, meaning "Friday"), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς, meaning "thirteen") attached to phobía (φοβία, from phóbos, φόβος, meaning "fear"). The word was derived in 1911 and first appeared in a mainstream source in 1953...as per Wikipedia. :)
