Woke up this morning a little emotionally spent after Vidya’s send off at the office and knowing how this is going to affect the other two members of the ‘Powerpuff Girls’. And me!
I sat chatting with both Kannanchettan and Arun and seperately with Kristen the great buck howard movie . I was content to just be lazy and stay in my room but by 12 pm I was getting restless and so I showered and headed out. Had a triple sec coffee at CCD and started reading Hearts In Atlantis by Stephen King. It’s going good so far. I also had a brownie over there, listening to saxophone versions of popular older hit songs from the 80s and soundless F1 trials.
I then headed out to Penta Menaka & bought some dvds at Cinema Paradiso. There was a family in there who took up most of the space in the tiny store. While I was browsing through their latest collections, a group of annoying, stupid & moronic guys came in. They must have been in college and they were loud and dumb, going through some dvd titles and reading them stupidly! They were in for about 10 minutes and the stares from the other patrons & the store’s staff made them vamoose!
I bought copies of I Am Legend, Lars And The Real Girl, Knocked Up and some concert dvds of Shania Twain, Sarah McLachlan, Jewel, Metallica & Dream Theatre. Awesome list if you ask me. Oh, you weren’t asking? Well, I wasn’t telling you!
I then felt hungry and a quick look at the clock let me know that it was 2.25 pm and so I went over to Oberois and had a plate of mixed noodles, garlic pork along with some MGM Apple Kiz vodka. It tastes better and better with every sip. As I sipped, ate and read my book, I also listened to the conversations around me, particularly one at the next table as a guy was relating an incident he had with the cops a couple of nights back to his two companions. It seems that the fine Kerala police are harassing the good citizens of Cochin for the heinous crime of……..driving home from work after putting in some extra hours. Not drunk driving folks, just driving home late, around 10 pm in fact! no traffic violations, no nothing. Its been going on a bit lately.
