day 538

You would feel low, if for the last 8 odd years you have worked 5 days a week and most of the year you had weekends off..and suddenly you are working in a place where one has to work 6 days a week. But, as in life, you gain some, you loose some.
I woke by around 9:15 AM and did the usual morning stuff. Had some paper work to do(Wonder when will all this end...). Then left to see a movie - The Hangover 2. While leaving, Li'll Purav wanted to come out. Just like his grandmom, he hates sitting at home, and given a choice would just stay out of the house either playing or hanging around in the park or anywhere else. But no home. So being a nice guy, i take him to the roundabout a few hundred meters from my house along with my man friday and then politely ask him to go back home. He cant speak so he politely nods his head  to say "No, Uncle Charlie, i wont go home." My man friday takes him out of the car to take him back home and the minute my car pulls out, he starts crying. LOL. Anyways, i saw the movie and was worth a few laughs. Not as good as the 1st part but has its moments. Had a quiet lunch at Vithals. The famous 100 year old eatery. Came back home for around 15 minutes so that i could make a logo and a tagline for my company. Apparently, my company has this promotion amongst the employees. Make a tagline and a logo and if they like it, we will get some cash prize. There were lots of fantastic entries, so lets see who wins it. Besides having 1 saturday off per month, we also have some small event on one of the working saturdays. This saturday it was "Aam ras" time along with the logo competition. For those of you who are not familiar with some Indian Traditions, Aam ras, literally means, the pulp of mango. During the month of May, almost all households in India have mangoes along with their meals, mostly as desserts. One of the variants of mango, is the one in which one can eat the pulp. So had that, listened to some music and chit chatted with colleagues. Then it was back to work. In the evening, we decided to order for pizzas and had a nice dinner as well. And after a nice dinner and a near-party mood, the last thing one would wanna concentrate on would be work. So, productivity, for the day was at an all month low. But its ok, once a month we are allowed to take it easy. Came back home, and after years, video chatted on yahoo with a friend. It was fun. But somehow, after 30 mins of chatting, yahoo conked off. Well, some things never change i guess.
As i write, Scrooge is busy watching the Manchaster United vs FC Barcelona - UEFA champion's league final. Although, in the last 20 odd years, Man U has won more matches against Barcelona while playing each other..This year promises to be different. He wants me to watch the match with him, but since i have to wake early in the morning to meet an uncle(Grr..why on a sunday ???)...i will take it easy. I will update this blog and go to sleep. Its been a long day and i deserve a good night's sleep.

And yes, like scrooge, i am an anti-English Football/ Anti English Cricket fan. So i would love to see Manchester United loose and that too in home country.

And i will not forget the poem for my beloved.....all i have to say...i will still keep loving you...

Hold me close and tell me how you feel
Tell me love is real
Words of love you whisper soft and true
Darling I love you

Let me hear you say the words I long to hear
Darling when you're near
Words of love you whisper soft and true
Darling I love you..
