Finally, after a month, I ventured out into the town and went out just for the pleasure of it. I needed some time away from the monotony of home-office-home that has bogged me down for these last 30 days. Mainly due to my illness, I didn’t feel like going out and even when I was back at work, I would just come back home straight from work, stopping on a couple of occasions for a bowl of hot soup and twice for a quick dinner at a small restaurant near my residence.
So after I woke up and browsed the net for a while, I took a shower and went over to marine drive for some coffee at Barista. I had missed having mocha frappes and I also had a muffin. That felt so good. It was ok weather wise but I didn’t stay there long. I then went to get some dvds and I got a handful of them for a very low price. I am excited about watching The Dark Knight & Hancock in particular. The store was boiling hot due to a power failure in that part of the city for about 2 hours. I sweated and sweated as I browsed through the dvds. Anyway, I left after that and went to get my hair cut.
While waiting for my turn, I made friends & played with a small boy who was about 3 years old. The little critter was tiny and funny. He offered me some of his cheetos which I politely refused as I don’t like them. Then I got my hair cut and feeling fresh I walked to Oberois for some Smirnoff. Ah man, I can’t tell you how much I missed drinking vodka+sprite (or seven up as it was in this case). When you can’t have it due to illness or some other reason, you really miss it. And you crave it. And even someone like me, who only drinks 3 to 4 times in a month. I need it. There was too much blood in my alcohol system!
I ate a plate of mixed noodles for lunch and read parts of Blood Canticle while I was there. Then it was home to lie on my bed and watch Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanomo Bay. Review to follow later.
