Sunday Bloody Sunday

Never let your hands shake while administering Tabasco. My Bloody Mary turned out to be a Bloody Bloody Bloody Mary! Added so much Tabasco, I burnt my lips. Switched to Vodka and Sprite thereafter. Needed the cooling effect so badly, I lost count after 3 drinks. No matter, since everyone, including BH, were in high spirits as well. Two wine drinkers consumed a bottle each, a solitary beer drinker generously left 4 bottles for the kabadiwalla, and a turkey was demolished as well. Have sailed to office today on extremely choppy seas.

Hi,what's up?
These days I'm doing an internship with some newspaper. And I'm getting nightmares of getting fired after not turning up with a hard news story!

Hey, that's great! What paper? And I'm SURE you'll do a fab job.

deepika said...

No! I'm like a tube light. Things just miss out before my eyes! It's TOI, Surat.
What about you? Which company are you working with, and as what?

@deepika: Give it some time - you may become a flashlight soon! As for me, I got back to advertising, missed my freedom and quit over a month ago, BUT, since I like my boss, have agreed to wait till my replacement is found - and it's taking simply ages. Longimg to work from home in my nightie!

I don't want to become any flashlight. I just want to write few pieces and earn my bread.
Yes, you surely must be missing your freedom. Hope your longing end soon!

@Deepika: No don't say that. Have you seen them LED flashlights you get these days? They're really good. I wouldn't mind being one of those.

@Rupa: How u been Ru? I was going to tell you this arrangement you made with your boss of staying till you find a replacement was a very bad idea. I did it once and saala I regretted it like hell! Took me forever to find someone! Anyway hope you and BH are having a nice Christmas. Did you manage to attend that carol singing thing I had mailed you about? Hi to Bun.

@SWB: Hey, hope you had a fab X'mas! Didn't get an email from you at all- sad because I would have enjoyed the carols. BTW, I have been working hard trying to find my replacement myself, or else I'll be here till I die. Ze boss eyes me reproachfully when I hand him names and contact details. God, yearning to be free!
