The weekend that was.

Normally I avoid writing the year that was, thanks to my memory which is as good as an indian voter. But the weekend that passed off was a pretty active one so thought of penning it down. Will also help me in drawing up my 2009 year end post.
  • A bachelor party @ GRT granddays.The meal was so sumptuous that i ended up dozing in the lobby. Realized a delicious heavy meal can be a good substitute for alcohol :).No doubt gujjus eat so much, probably to get over the fact they are in a dry state :D.
  • Also realized I am dumb with regards to mechanics.Damn my bike.
  • Received the wedding invite of one of my..wat can i say..crush may be!! Went into a poignant mood n was thinking how it wud have been had my name been there.Well we never think abt how it wud be if Bush won an IQ contest, Manmohan Singh wore a pink bikini or Bappi Lahiri wins gold in an athletic meet. So lemme leave that "how it wud have been" part alone.
  • Another binge shopping spree, I am sure to become bankrupt soon. Will need to fake my balance sheet like Mr.Raju,only then there is a prospect of someone giving their girl to me.
  • Saw a movie and realized I am a very loyal lover, been in love with the same girl for the past 8years,a mean achievement amidst fickle-minded men..The girl is named aishwarya and her dad is Mr.Rai,ofcoz hubby is Mr.Abhishek and haan the movie was guru
  • Saturday was an activity filled day. Post the bachelor party went to a toastmasters club meeting. Was a a very normal one,until I came across anupam. He had a serious speech impairment and for speaking out a single sentence it takes 5 attempts[for framing it word by word] and more than 2 minutes.Yet he went on to speak and completed it amidst loud applauds. The kind of will power he had to overcome his issue, all my troubles and problems looked like a speck in front of that.
  • Then came the most happening event of the day. Thanks to some chennai bloggers, we went to a French folkdance show. As we settled down in the comfort of our chairs the organizer nick took the mic and informed it is not a show but a workshop and everyone inside the hall shud join in for the dance. Initially I planned to run out,but on seeing a few really pretty girls stay put :D.
    It was total fun and some of the dances they taught were named like rigodon, polka, mazurka,farandole...Well who is bothered abt the name of the dance, most of them had guys n girls dancing with different partners :D. The dances reminded some of our kindergarden games and were fun, though energy sapping. After a long time I slept for 8hours that nite. The best add-on of the event was the 2 cute kids of the organizing couple who were running & falling all over the place and providing a different kinda entertainment.
  • Sunday,the same bloggers bunch and went to bookfair. Bought a book by Richard dawkins, was really cheap when compared to the price tag displayed @ posh bookshops. Just that the fair was too crowded and got out in less than 2hours to avoid death by suffocation

    A kind request to folks from Bengaluruu.Me and my theatre group are planning to stage a show o'er there and if you do know any good[read as one who charges the lowest and most nominal rates :P] event management/marketing company which can help in organizing the show/sponsor hunting please do mail me at nautankey@gmail.com. Thank you in advance.

    Adios

You seem to have lot of time on your hand Nattu Nautank ! Das good and healthy. i have only time on my hands nuttin else.

So you are reading God Delusion ! You'd be angry at the end and become a believer. i think believers should be left alone, no point in pounding on them. if some one wants to believe that the earth is flat, that is fine with me. Harmless belief. that shouldn't hurt me. But the problem is these flat earth believers claim that they are right and want you to believe the same.
You'll find yourself disagreeing with Dawkins on many pages. i think this guy should go on a holiday and relax for a cuppal of years. He is becoming a militant. My case is dipperent. god fanatics come pile on me.

not good not good birtharr ! you better take your bike up your room and have a man to man talk. Get to know your bike well. that is a priority.

EEEEKS you bees in love with a marble statue to eight long years ?? Whats wrong wid you ?

Be thankful that your name was not printed on that invitation card. Go have an ice cream, alone, enjoy birthar !

Bedazzled said...

Aishwarya rai.. eeks ,vinod !!!! ..we danced the polka .. wow !! but yeah , it all seemed like "merry go round the mulberry bush" .. but was total fun .. not to mention a lil like a workout i badly badly needed..umm bachelor party !!! way to go ..so rebelez is going to bangalore ..good luck !!!

rauf said...

And And Birtharr ! please don't skip the wedding. Eat well, tell her that the food was terrific even if it sucks. and don't forget to thank her husband and thank the priest.

Nautankey said...

Rauf,
Yup luckily the french dance was free and costed just the time :).

Yeah dawkins is a bit extreme case, read some exceprt form his "selfish gene" but cud not buy as it was too heavy on ym purse,so thought will give him a try as he was available cheaply,thank god! :P

Marble statue is good as it ees dumb :)).Same reason why some men love blonds. Bike is a very rude one, plannign a divorce.

Sure i am not gonna miss the free food,that too when its a star rated reception hall. :D.

Nautankey said...

Parks,
