Water water everywhere....

This weekend was a watery one...a wavy one....and a hell lotta fun..:)
Had been to water kingdom with my new friends...my office buddies...:)
I never thought I could have fun with a varied age group...but I was proved wrong...and was obviously happy I was ...:)
So, we started early...(I was the first pickup..and so had to get up early...yeah yeah I got up really early..have never woken up so early even to study for exams...:P)....
We made so much noise all the way...played dumb charades like I'd never played before...coz people here...made such wild guesses...silly guesses...but they were so well-timed that one couldn't help but laugh...!So in short I was laughing all the time...(waise bhi I laugh a lot...:D)
We reached water kingdom at 10:30 and I thought we won't stay in longer than 3-4, but to my amazement....the place was so nice...so well maintained...so clean...so much fun..that we stayed in the water till around 6-6:30...
It wasn't only the place, but the group I was …

All in a days’ work...

Working hard that day at work, just to finish in time...meeting a friend after 3 whole months..(3 months may be a very small gap...but when ur used to meeting someone everyday...3 months is like an abyss...)...celebrating a friend's birthday....being able to find a nice gift just in time...a nice huge chocolate cake...all the gossiping...remembering old times...teasing one another...pulling each other's leg....getting angry for no reason...trying to 'manofy' a 'ruthi' hui friend...savouring each bite of the cake...with timed intervals of just..."mmmmm...yummy"....all this at an awesome place with an awesome ambience...and all this in just one day...:)
That's all I can describe about this awesome day I had...Im falling short of words...and some feelings are best not described...but understood...:)

Contrary to all reason...!

This is something...that is inconceivable...absolutely...unbelievable...I mean can you even think of an accident...affecting as many as 5 vehicles...and that too at a traffic signal..when the signal is red...???

I couldn't...I never thought about something like this...ever before...however, thanks to this flimsy experience...I have concluded that your never safe...even when you have halted at a red light..:)

Here's what happened...

At my fav spot (...yeah fav accidental spot..:D...)...nal stop...the signal where you turn towards Karnatak School...
The signal is bright red...broad daylight...and not that it just turned red...its red say about 40secs remaining...to turn green
A truck...in full speed....approaches the vehicles that were obeying the red light...and wow...what do we have....a sight worth watching...
5 vehicles in a row...damaged...(I cant understand...how fast the truck was that the collision spread to 5 vehicles in a column..!! whoa..!! )
Now...in Pune we always have spa…

My cellphone

No no...its not that I have an 'out of the world' model...and Im gonna start blabbering and boasting about its features and stuff...
Its just that I have realized finally (actually I realized long ago..bt its just that im admitting to it...:D )...that I am an addict...Im addicted to my cellphone...!!!

If you come to think of it..I have a nokia1112..a very basic model..with no unusual features...but it has become an integral part of my life.
What made me realize...that I am an addict...hehe...I can give some much needed 'visible symptoms' which will help everyone analyse..(now do they say self-analysis is the key to self-troubleshooting..:D ) whether they in turn have turned addicts or not..

Symptom 1 : Get paranoid..if your cell is nowhere next to you...
Symptom 2 : If your cell is on silent (for some unavoidable reason) keep checking to see if there's some mssg or a call
Symptom 3 : If you send a sms...maybe just a fwd...you expect a reply and are restless if you don&#…

Regrets...

I suddenly realized....tat writing a blog...is as much fun...as reading anothers or commenting on their posts...
So from now on...am gonna write frequently...(this frequently may even mean once in a year...or once in a week..:P )
