A weekend at work!!

Friday at last.........
The weekend beckons........... YAHOOO!!!
Just as I was getting bouyed by such thoughts, something happened.......... Something surely went wrong up there with the stars........ All, I could think was this can't be happening to me!! For there landed a sack of work on my shoulders.............. I would have to turn up at office during the weekend!!
All hell broke loose........ I couldn't believe myself as the clock ticked away towards Saturday.... and I am far from getting my work done.

Now in case you are wondering what sort of work I do, then let me fill you in. I am an IT professional i.e. I earn my bread and butter by writing incoherent (to a layman) stuff to fool a certain section of people, so that they believe that what I've written is exactly what they wanted!! In short, I am a white collar conman!! hehe........ Just playing........
Or should I say an educated person who despite being termed by the Indian society as a privledged guy (thanks to my job!!), is actually a smartly dressed labour who toils away in front of the computer.................. A perfect blue collar labour?? Whoops.... am drifting!! The effect of quite a few sleepless nights and hours of staring at "those incoherent sentences" containg nothing but Dim, If, Else, While, For, and some other stuff...... guess they add that for some special effects or something!! I dunno....... But, somehow I know that those stuff should be there!!

So coming back to my Friday evening. Oh!! how I had planned on the weekend. Let me give you an idea:

1. Sleep till late Saturday morning.
2. Afternoon or evening step out to meet a friend....... the very same I had mentioned in an earlier post...... met her on the train once...... Yes, we've been in touch!! :)
3. Come back..... crash.... chat up with some friend (got a regular chat partner here) or the other over the phone.... I always manage to find someone..... and surprisingly all of them are girls!! Am I the only guy who talks at night???
4. Sunday morning: Who says one should wake up early?? Not me!! Sleep kiddo..... sleep!!
5. Lazy afternoon, might step out for a movie. Rashmi and Kuntal were talking about Water.
6. Evening. Crash and sleep....... Monday blues setting in!!

And so grumbling and mumbling out walked a dejected youngster from the office...... tugging his blue sling bag along with him....... chatted up with his friends at the usual spot for their daily nocturnal gossip!! And they said girls gossip??? :P

Ah!! Saturday morning...... eyes hardly opening... god!! it hurts......... but have to go to office.... monthly meeting!! Now this monthly show at office would always happen on a Saturday!! Uff!!!!
This time it would be hosted by Sailee, another friends of mine................ And so the meeting began, which turned out to be a bridal fashion show, a project update and a blind orchestra........... (I am still amazed by the keyboard player... blind but managing a Roland xp 60 flawlessly!!).............
Meeting over, time to dig into some delicious lunch............... Ah!! The best thing was the dessert - Fruit Salad with ice cream!!

And then the long walk back to my desk............. my terminal........... harldy anyone in the office but me................. Ach!!! This is worse than detention in school days!! Sheesh!!
Don't ask how the rest of the day went............ Left office at 10 in the night....... still far from my goal........... And coming around on Sunday too.................. I don't remember being sadder!!


Sunday morning............ the silence of the morning............ a youngster soundly asleep probably dreaming of his favourite gal ;).................... and then....................
"Trrrrrrrrrrrrrinnnnnnnnnnng Trrrrrrrrrrrrrinnnnnnnnnnng" or sounds to that reverberate across this peaceful atmosphere.......................

"Damn its the alarm!! Who the hell set it at such an inhuman hour!! I need to....... ZZZzzzzzzzz!!!!" That was at 10:00 a.m.
And so afternoon crept in.......... And finally groggily yours truly steps off the bed........ And then a call.................

"Movie chalta hai kya?? "....
"Kaunsi??"....
"Abbe, Water!! kal hi to baat hui thi!!"....
"Haan kya?? To chal! Kitne baje ki hai??"....
"1:45"....
"Done, I'll be there at Adlabs by 1:30"...
"Maine Rashmi ko bhi bol diya hai, woh aa rahi hai."
"Cool!!"
click!!

The very thought of catching a movie galvanised me into action. At least something was happening that made it seem like a weekend!! And so, in trooped three friends to catch "Water". The movie was great... so were the comments..... more so about the movie later... may be some other post!!

4:00 ........... movie over.......... Kuntal very much in the mood to fool around.... Rashmi waiting to get back home...... A mum really cannot stay away from her kid after all!! :)
And me, well..... I was heading back to office...................Another few hours or work........ Garnished with some orkutting and some chatting!! The side effects of being a software professional!!

A weekend spent in the arms of my beloved blue chair............
Ah!! I just wish......................


Btw, about my regular chat friend........... well actually happens to be one of my closest!! More about this person later....... Very interesting personality you see!!
And, I'm about to get a whack on my ears!! :)
Till then..........
Ciao.........
