Lazy Saturday!!!

I was waiting for an unplanned weekend from long and seems like it’s here :) Friday ended quite early unlike my usual Fridays. I dozed off at around 12 only. So early? Right!! This was majorly because my mental stress level was at its all time low: P (Timeframe – last one year) and also coz of sleep’s which I had accumulated over the weeks. So I had good night’s sleep which got over at 9 in the morning with a cup of tea. Post Morning and Afternoon passed listening some beautiful numbers from APKGK, Wake Up Sid and Dostana. After a long I was devoting some time specifically to music and to tell you I literally realized I was deprived of music from last 2-3 months...But never mind I felt real good lazing out, eating all the junk food, reading a bit with some soft Indi music playing around my ears. It was Heaven!!! :) And then it was the time for a rare and precious afternoon nap. My Precious: P.

Evening went to Basho’s with school friends. Nice secluded place, cool ambiance, chilled out crowd and good food. It’s majorly famous for the Sheesha aka Hukka. Though Hukka has never been my cup of it, may be coz I was not knowing the proper way of smoking it. But people around me are literally crazy after this damm thing, so out of choice I was forced to give it one more try. My all earlier tries had been futile but today finally with my consistent tries and diligent efforts I was able to inhale this flavoured charcoal through my lungs without coughing out aloud :). It was kind of proud moment for me, as now I was on same level with everyone on the table: P. Dinner went on well. Food at the place was good, can be considered when we talk about places with good food quality in Pune. We wrapped up the eve with the delicious Ice-cream at the Natural’s. I really wonder how they manage to keep it so natural and pure. Natural’s ice-cream is one of those rare good things to eat which we don’t get in Indore as if now.

Reached back home at 12. Had few good chat sessions with my friends staying in West continents. And now writing this EOD blog to give a perfect ending to Lazy, Calm and Cool Saturday!!! :)

P.S. – Feeling great, writing blog on consecutive days that too after I almost stopped writing. Credit goes to my friend Mr IIM who has recently started writing on 365 basis. He has always been the source of inspiration to me. One complete blog due on you my friend, someday :)

P.P.S – Achievement of the day: Learned smoking Hukka!! :D But still Hukka hits me more than Alcohol: P

P.P.P.S – Bought 2 States, hope it’s a good read. Hoping to start it tomorrow after finishing Everything you Desire which M trying to read from last 3-4 months :P (M not such a bad reader, but was somehow not able to read lately)

Mood: Calm

The CALL!!!

How does it feels when you are waiting for a CALL (not like the call from GOD for enlightenment: P) and your cell phone is not ringing only?? I believe you genuinely become quite anxious and get totally restless. Same thing is happening with me from last 10-12 days. Last to last Saturday I was told I will get a CALL in the middle of next week. It was going to be one decisive call and was definitely more than important for me. Being a total techi, I was like middle of next week means spot on Wednesday. Somehow I managed to keep my anxiety to a normal human level till Wednesday but could not control it beyond that. Whole day I was intact with my cell phone and was checking the network in every 5 minutes. Usually I get at least 2-3 calls daily from unknown numbers by the executives of this and that bank selling their investment plans or giving me a lifetime free credit card, but today was the ironical day; I didn’t get any call from any unknown number :(. My wrist watch beeped 6.00 PM highlighting official EOD. I somehow consoled myself by giving the excuse that Okay with the standard IST mid of next week can stretch up to the end of next week as well. I waited for the CALL on the Thursday too but today the nervousness was on a bit lower scale as I was leaving for home and was looking forward to a good trip :) But somehow at the back of my mind it was there, the prolonged eagerness for the CALL was there :). Alas!!! No call on Thursday too:|. Anyways Friday started, I had one of the best journeys of my life time the other night. I was all excited and all fired up, and somehow was quite a bit casual about the call now. Around 5 P.M. I stepped into my new CAR and the moment I started the ignition I saw this unknown number singing ‘One Love’ for me. With a bit of nervousness I picked up the call…and Yes it was the CALL which I was waiting for :)

Please!!!!!!!Don’t tell me!!!!!! The CALL leads me to another call :( The person on the other line, that day, informed me that I will be getting one another call on some day at some time. I was like… Nahii!!!!!! Enough of the patience, I am not calm and composed type of guy who can take this new surprises and new shocks just like that :(. But to be honest, I didn’t really have any other option then to linger on whatever is happening…. So I again waited for the next CALL :)

Next call came… though some 45 minutes late to what was communicated to me but that was quite in sync with the typical IST thing, so I didn’t bother much ;). Call went on decently. I was just hoping this call should not take me to another waiting stage. Just before the call was about to end, the guy, informed me “Okay. The same person will get back to you.” I was again like… No ways!! Not again :( One more waiting stage :(

I feel like I am a Thread who is forcefully pushed to waiting state and can be invoked back again by some external interrupt only :(. The second call was on Tuesday and its Friday again… No new CALL yet!! My wait is turning out to be an eternal wait:| But now I am quite Okay and not all that anxious about it, in fact I am feeling quite optimistic and hoping for some good positive outcome of this entire dramatic wait for the CALL!!! :)

I believe waiting is no fun for anyone until and unless you are doing it for your beloved ;). Top it all if it’s about a CALL then getting restless and anxious is so human :)

Hope it results in something good!!!

P.S. - M quite happy writing after a gap of almost two months. It’s so fun to write your thoughts :)
