Off to never-never land...

Well, not actually. Of the 4 days of the extended weekend (I'd applied leave on thursday), 3 days were spent travelling. Thursday and friday to Tirupati and saturday to Mysore. Tirupati visit was for religious purposes - we'd booked for a seva at the Tirumala temple. Get this - we'd booked for the seva on 4th Nov 2005, on 2nd Feb 2001!!!! Talk about advance planning and booking!! I must ask my parents if they've already booked the wedding hall sometime in 2010!!!! :)) (Err.. If so, I'd have inquire about how to get it cancelled!).

Tirumala is a wonderful place! I mean, the infrastructure there and the way they've maintained the whole place so clean in spite of the massive and constantly mobile crowd is indeed commendable! I somehow forgot to take my cam (someone blonk on my head for that!). The seva was at 3:30AM and I'd to get up at 2AM to get ready and reach the temple! And the following day journey in a bus back to Bangalore meant that I had absolutely NO sleep for 2 days!!!! That I slept like a slothful dog that night (almost 12 hours - 6PM to 5-30AM) is another matter altogether! :D

Saturday - a timepass trip to Mysore. The plan was made in a jiffy and just me and 2 of my friends started off at 8AM. The trip was made primarily for enjoying the long drive! On reaching Mysore, we visited Chamundi hills, had lunch and came back! That's it! People would probably think that we'd have been really crazy to do something like that - but then, hey, who cares! We enjoyed the day! :)

After 3 days of travelling, I was hoping to relax at home on sunday. But NO! I have to attend some social gathering! Man, how I hate these gatherings - Its utterly pointless to just go there and put on a smiling face for people you would'nt even have come across in your entire life! Listen to this - I am wearing a t-shirt bearing a bold logo saying "HP-invent". A lady (turned out to be my mom's friend - I found this out later) comes to me and asks "Are you working at Infosys?" - I had no words coming out of my mouth for a while and eventually I managed to get a decent answer out. Man, how I had to force myself not to make any smartass replies!

Anyway, its a new week and have to get back to work - My Inbox in showing 86 unread mails! Phew! Ok then - cya all around!
