Rants of an Eligible Bachelor! :)

21 Nov


Well…I was back on wednesday morning…but then tiredness, body-ache and work too priority before getting back to this online den of mine!! 🙂

It had been a good long weekend…I set out on friday night in a train to Mangalore and as expected found myself amidst a gang of 65+ yr old men and women…I suddenly had this feeling of being on my way to Amarnath, Vaishnodevi, Kashi, Haridwar or some other pilgrimage place…it was just an instant feeling!! 😉
The worst thing about being in the company of the senior citizens in a train is that they switch off the lights when its 10pm and in most cases also switch off the godforsaken fans citing cold as the reason…since they get air from the window peeps, the ones (like me) on the upper berth are gone for a toss. The best thing about being in their company is that I get to eat whatever they offer as well as I get some time for myself (else I would spend that time checking out the PYTs)!! 😀

I checked the chart before boarding the train…there was a 24 F who was supposed to board the train from Palghat in the morning and get down at Cannanore…a 2 hour 30 mins ride for the chick…but sadly when I opened my eyes, it was 11am…all I did was sleep more! Sigh!

As I approached closer to Mangalore, I got down from my berth and looked outside the window and at the Payanur station found a yellow banner reading “Self volunteering for Vasectomy is good for your own Health, your state Kerala and our country India” in white paint…What the…I mean, of all things…I guess since mostly older men travel (they do whenever I do, at least) on this route, this banner was at the right place!! 😉

The wedding and all the rituals went by peacefully…and my dear friends, your friend (ya me…aur kaun) has now become the most eligible one from both his maternal and paternal side.!!! :mrgreen: Being the first grandchild on my mom’s side, I was born eligible…lol…and it took me 25 yrs and almost 7 months to become eligible from my dad’s side (blame my late grand-dad for all that targets he achieved with my grandma…may god bless his soul)!! Phew…

The return journey back to Chennai was no sweeter…though I came via Bangalore and hence boarded 2 trains on 2 consecutive nights, my luck remained the same…just plain, simple and hard!! 😦

Wednesday was busy….I didnt even realise as to how it went by…The only time I took to relax was to get done with the dreaded photo shoot for my office ID card!! It took him 3 shots to kill…err…get my pic right! First click, he said “Sir, is it ok if i click you without your spectacles? They reflect…blah blah”….Second Click, “Sir you have tilted your head to the right…one more pls”…and he adjusted my head by tilting it to my left…and clicked the third successful one…
If you ask me, the problem was with him cos when he clicked he tilted to his right side and always set his object tilted to their left!! Classic case of “Finding faults in others is easy”!! 😀

Today it was terrible…I goofed up at work…Did some financial postings which I wasn’t supposed to do…But I did!! :mrgreen: Sat the whole noon reversing all the mess I had done…and in the evening client call, I explained the mishap and got off the hook! Phew…

At home here, I had planted the rat kill bait for Jerry…seems like he was happy to eat it and go…only to return after 5 days…May be he got admitted to a hospital with tummy ache after eating that!! Damn that product from Mortein…Jerry might now be immune to such baits!! Sheesh!!

Well so far, its all gone good…
Had round dosas now as food…
I simply love my bachelorhood…
Eligibilty now adds a little bit of attitude!! 😉

    @ Nive,

    Hehe…the yellow banner was actually logical…but I looked at it in a funny way, thats it!! 😉
    Ya, as mommy says the goof up should be hereditory!! 😛
    Thanks buddy! 😀

    @ AKB,

    Arre kuch nahi…some sort of campaign…One-ID-One-Identity or something like that…all our ID cards (irrespective of location and country) will look the same with a big face of ours and just the name and emp ID…no other details I guess!! Too much hype for nothing! 🙂
    Thanks buddy!! 😀

    for crying out loud everyone loves bachelor/spinster hood unless they get hitched & then force other singletons to follow the same path. hope you won’t do that.

    a 24F was on your train & all you did was SLEEP???? [:p][:p]

    have patience there are people (like me ) who cannot get a decent pic even with 100 clicks.

    hehheehe @ the poem , name it ‘food for bachelorhood’ [:)]

    Thats a nice title…hehe…
    Thanks buddy!! 😀

    @ Revs,

    Sree.. ur journey was pretty sweet here! My journey the last time around was with a nice little gang of girls!!!!!
    Well.. .this time around… and for probably the first time in my life… I was thinking “Gosh! Why am I here?” WElll.. girls it was.. but none of ur PYTs! It was an entire class of some little primary school.. from some interior village in the some Veerappan infested jungles going on a tour to some place! Didnt even care to ask them where! 🙂
