The Christmasy Weekend

I hope Calvin and Hobbes brightens your day!

Calvin and Hobbes! My fav comic.

Let me tell you about more cliché things now shall I? How about Christmas? (Oh, don’t moan, like you didn’t know it was coming!) This year the ‘Mumbai-Christmas’ was different – to put it aptly. Since the last 3 years of my life, I have spent Christmas with well – Christians. You can’t help but be in a merry mood with all the carol singing, standing under mistletoes (I must mention here that those looked really odd when strung at a bachelor’s house with only guys in the party, so you generally avoided them), the rum cakes… you couldn’t help but be merry. This year however, I spent it with Hu! Watched two movies… One I’d rather not talk about (Oh, OK! it was Welcome – that horrific Hindi movie they incorrectly labelled as a ‘comedy’) and the other Bee Movie (which I had already seen earlier).

I also went shopping yesterday and blew up 1700 bucks :p on jeans! W00t! Levies and all that… pretty cool. Came to office after a good 4 day break (i took a leave on Monday) and found 35 scraps on Orkut wishing me ‘Merry Christmas’, some to the point and some I could hardly make any sense of.

The weekend was fab! Met up wid Ku-Shru again and we went about roaming everywhere. It was awesome fun. In-Orbit mall is bigger than I expected it to be! We sat around chatting and having 2 of the cheapest coffees on the menu and then had dinner with em.

You know, this year, the festivities become wayy too virtual for me. I used a JavaScript to scrap everyone on Orkut with the ‘Merry Christmas’ message. It stole the fun out of meeting up with everyone and lip-syncing the carols (I must confess, I don’t know a word of em and by the time they started at Pillai’s place, I would be too high to care). I think this ‘scrap-everyone’ thingy is a tad too automatic for me. For next time, I guess I’ll just stick to sending it manually to people I WANT to.

Did you know that you can copy the text of any windows error message by pressing [Ctrl] + C and paste it by pressing [Ctrl] + V on the keyboard? Impressive eh?

Another 5 days to a new year, my resolutions? Nothing 🙂

I am doing something related to this blog. Let’s see if it materialises. Think of it as a Christmas present to myself 🙂
