I thought the last week would never get over. I always had a sneaking feeling that my memory’s not all that sharp since way back in college. And as I broke my back studying for The Exam, I found out I had been right all along. Ah, my memory let me down more than once and I’d kick it if only it were tangible. So that was that and now I am free to once again become lazy and spend all my time effortlessly doing things that come naturally to me.
Although all that exercise in cramming did make me realize that I could use such drastic aim in life once in a while. It was nice having a goal, for a change and doing just about everything to achieve it. While I have no problem whatsoever with pointless existance (like before), something tells me I am going to look at things differently henceforth. And that doesnt necessarily mean through TV.
Went for a picnic with the girls yesterday. They sang non-stop all the way till the picnic spot and also all the way back. For about three whole hours. It was unbelievable. I think a good measure of how old one actually is can be realized when you no longer know the songs that the rest of these early 20′s something are yelling on top of their voices. And the fact that while they can dance without a break, you start gasping & wheezing for breath before too long.
There’s a rule that says: Nobody cares if you cant DANCE well. Just get up and dance.
Well, there was one kid who just kept on saying again and again that she couldnt dance at all. Inspite of me going and showing her all the moves, she just kept on refusing to dance. So, in the end, I told her to practice for one year because come next picnic, she will be the first one to inaugurate the dance floor.
It was tiring but it was fun. I’m glad we all have one year to recuperate till the next time.
The game finally went international, thank god. Watching Roadies 5.0 was a blast, what with the gruesome Lady Boys act or the frog eating task. My stomach just churned involuntarily. Thai kickboxing was fun, with the kids beating the hell out of each other. Finally some real Roadies action. The Varun jokes scrolling at the end of the screen was hilarious! What wont they think of next. For once when Raghu lamented about setting the crap-eating task, he looked human for a change. I liked it.
I’m doing an Eagles right now and taking it all easy. I’m finally free. To become lazy all over again. Wont take much time at the rate at which I am going.
