The New Years Bash - 2005

There should have been a big bash - in the scenic locales of GOA.
Life - however takes its own set of turns and twists. So I ended up in Delhi!!

But it was fun.. :-) and I mean real fun.

As a prelude to the last nite - we went partying on the 30th as well. I played bare chested (lmost) and then laded up in bed all day on the 31st as the cold weather had hit me hard. I wasn't sure I was going anyplace tonite. Mom-dad got me thru the day and we ended up at Gaurav & Niharikas place to bid adieu to 2005.
This has been an eventful year - no doubt on that!!!
This was a small get together for the 6 of us and we made the most of it. I couldn;t get enough of the Biryani, booze & Butter chicken (not necessarily in that order)

That's Tina'n'me gettin ready to go...

Gaurav & Rika - the lovely couple who had us over for Dinner
Surabhi & Tina on the phone.

The real funny thing was that at midnight - everybody went for their phones and the dang network was jammed up as hell...
What is this world coming to?
Sunny was the only one who actually managed to get through on the clogged networks. The only hitch was that nobody was picking up the phone at the other end!!! LOL

Merry Xmas

Yes - This Xmas might just be X-Rated!!!! (X here means FUN - not what you were thinkin )

We (Tina & me) spent it with friends - Niharika, Gaurav, Sunny Surabhi and Shamit.
It was a blast!! and I mean a real blast @ shamits place..

We were meeting Sunny , Surabhi and Shamit (3s') for the very forst time. At the end of it - it didn't feel that way. We got there at half past 10 and continued laughing our guts out till half past 3 in the morning. They actualy thought Tina and me were not Brother and sister - till we told'em and cleared the air.

This was way past the hour when the chimes struck in the clock tower at Bethlehem and heralded the beginning of a new era.

Gaurav & Niharika (GnR)- chillin!!

Sunny and Surabhi - sunny doing his thing!!

Shamit -Sunny - Gaurav. What a Trio!!!

Is that a Bottle in Sunnys hand down there or what!!!

Another Foggy Bottom Day

This time around the entire city was affected.
Layer upon layer of the Fog descended from the heavens above - kinda like that hymn we sang at School: "Showers of Blessings"

I still remember the lyrics to a certain extent. Let me put them down as a reprise.

There shall be showers of blessing
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.

Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead

Still a few days to go for Christmas - yet the season has begun.
So what if we can't have Snow. The fog will do for awhile. :-)

And gues what - I seem to get into a sneezing fit every hour or so. This is a collection of 3-8 sneezes at a go akin to a mail train. Then my colleague from the bay sends me her "god bless you"s.

God knows - I need them.

Foghorn ahoy!!!

Bring out the Foghorns!!!
The Titanic is going to sink.. well actually collide first.

22nd December '05- Ugly Kid Fog rears his head early in the Morning in Gurgaon. All I see are the clouds on the ground. And guess what it only affected Gurgaon - no impact on Delhi!!

It gives me impetus to get home on time :-)

Dats me... walking in the clouds :-)

Creativity Lost!!

John is very creative.
He put his creative thoughts online.
That was extremely tough - given the fact that he is not used to a lot of hard work. He is more of the guy who gives intelligence (consultant) than actually type it out....

Now the guys at shut his shop and ran away with all that Creativity.
He is left wondering how to recover his thoughts – which I must admit had me asking for more.

Anyone who can help him - please do so...

ELEVATE with DJ Sasha (17 Dec)

This was supposed to be a pretty happening event.
Saturday Nite - Cool place- hot music - even hotter women and the like.

It started off with a good dinner at the Kasbah in GK-1 where I got to meet the members of Tina's (my sis) gang. Very nice and friendly people - all of them!!!

The challenge started when we entered CLub Elevate. They'd hyped up this event of DJ SASHA playing at their club to such an extent that they proved right the old saying - EXPECTATIONS REDUCE JOY.

The music - totally club and trance is great for sometime, OK for a while and then it starts to jangle the nerves. Add to that the fact that you pay a 1500 entry charge - which is NOT a cover. The place is big but it was jam-packed and the floor was only for keeping your feet there - not for dancing. Again - since it was sponsored by SMIRNOFF - Vodka was the only liquid appetizer on offer.
Everybody was pushing everybody else around and picking up an argument wasn't all that tough. We also picked it up with 2 SURDS(the turbanned variety) - unluckily - calmer heads prevailed. At least that ways - we'd have gotten some action.... just kidding - they'd probably have beaten the crap out of us :-)
We dance a bit - till abuot 2AM and then headed home - totally out of synch.
The highlight of the evening/ night was the double scoop of Baskin Robbin chocolate ice cream that I picked up on the way out of the plaza.
Ahhh- to be able to sin !!!!

Reasons to drink ( water & alcohol)

Everybody has theirs - I have mine!!!

  1. When I need to be healthy
  2. When I need to flush the toxins....
  3. When I'm happy!:-)
  4. When I'm sad!:-(
  5. When I'm heart-broken!!! :-((
  6. When a friend is heart-broken (with the friend of course)
  7. When I need to recover from last night!
  8. Because I don't drive
  9. When I need to forget
  10. To un-depress myself. Somehow this never works.
  11. It brings out the raw emotions
  12. When I need to be social.
  13. The world is hazy...
  14. To get to the beat of the music.
  15. I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day."
  16. When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
  17. And God said, "Let there be vodka!" And He saw that it was good. Then God said, "Let there be light!" And then He said, "Whoa - too much light!"
  18. Because it's a good replacement for ass-kissing!
  19. Because I want to
  20. Because it has less calories per pint than typical healthy drinks
  21. Beacuse beauty is only a few drinks away
  22. Because I like the thought of indulging in a bit of epicurean debauchery every once in a while.
  23. Cos' I need to get high... cheaply!
  24. It reduces stress
  25. Increases job satisfaction because if you have a bad job you don't care.

These do not reflect my state of mind. All of them have come into play at one time or another.

I'd love it if you could add some more...

PS : Never write about drinking when you're drinking and upset.
It upsets the hell out of your life - even more!!

The Neal'n'Nikki Thingie

I was really there to see Nikki.
Tanisha is definietely HOT.
Uday looks like a jumped up wimp - with lipstick - his red lips kinda like stand out the whole film!!!

Well - actually Dad managed first day pics for the film and there was no reason not to go.This movie has been made for fanatics.
I mean - at least 60% of it is dedicated to exploring the female anatomy. It would be a little gross - but - the director (his name is Arjun Sablok - does no justice to the name) jhas gone overboard on his focus on - breasts , getting laid & poorly executed lip-locks. The lead duo have no chemistry when they do it - at least not something that's evident.
Reminiscing about Madhuri (Dayavaan ) & Karishma (Raja Hindustaani) - they had spunk put into those moments. These scenes in NNN were pathetically American and that too without the emotions.

The movie was a treat for the male eyes - nothin beyond that.
Oh - I did like the climax though!!!

1st Dec 05 - A new beginning

Day o at NIIT.
I'm in the Higher Education (aka higher ed) Division.
They still have to figure out a project and workstation for me - i'm in no hurry.
The break could be useful.

Travelling is gonna be a bummer though.
