Jerry Buddyweiser – No More!! Hmm…

HE CAME, HE SAW, HE was CONQUERED.
No. I am not talking about Julius Caesar here…But about our Jerry Buddy-weiser! πŸ˜‰

I am now feeling sad to say that, “He’s no longer amidst us”! May his soul rest in peace! Amen! πŸ™‚

Let me talk a few words about the one who aspired to be my roommate sans my wish and permission.
Knowingly or unknowingly, he had come into my room a month ago and tried hard to be a part of my life….The first time I saw him, he ran under my bed faster than a cheetah would…I didn’t mind his I-don’t-like-the-way-you-look run, but I distinctly remember having sprung up on my feet and up on the bed…yes, I was happy and excited beyond limits to get a new roomie!! πŸ˜‰

I named him Jerry…and though he was not considered one among us, he had no hard feelings and made the most of our absence in our flat. While my roommates and me share the flat, he made the kitchen and one of the bathrooms his own. Ofcourse, we wouldn’t use the bathroom in a stranger’s presence, for that matter in anybody’s presence…no way, and I bet he very well knew that fact…weirdo! πŸ˜€

Three weeks passed by and he grew bigger eating the leftovers of what we cooked…and sometimes he even ate the ingredients! It was ok if he shared the monthly grocery bill, but no…Jerry didn’t share saala…but he did eat, and ate till he bloated as if he had never heard about the zero-sized Bebo…I must confess, that our frequencies never matched – nor did the wavelengths!Β πŸ˜‰

The day before I went to Mangalore, I decided to treat him with food specially available for his kind in the market…Mortein Rat Cake…and kept two pieces of it…one in his kitchen and one in his bathroom. Both were untouched the next morning. He didn’t seem to have come…may be he was angry over the fact that I didn’t invite him or probably he had a booze party somewhere else. Hic! πŸ˜€

Last Wednesday when I returned, I asked my roomies as to what happened to those cakes…they said, “Probably Jerry ate that one, but we didn’t find him”!! I thought he ate it and had gone wandering…but I saw him the next day (Thursday) in his bathroom. He must have come along with me to Mangalore, I presumed. πŸ˜›

Sunday, I decided to treat him again. So took the second packet of cake, cut it into two halves and placed them in his two haunts…Today morning, I found the half kept under the kitchen sink all gone…so I went to check his bathroom…and what I saw, made me all sad…he was gone…not from his bathroom, but from our lives.

He had passed away, probably due to congestion in his wind pipe…one piece of cake per night was advisable, but our Jerry was a glutton. He was so late to realize that and sadly, Jerry is now “late” forever.
I jumped again, ran out all excited to wake up my sleeping roomie. When he blabbered something in his sleep, I just left him there. Left a note for him, asking him to take care of the final rites of our most recent roomie.

I came back home from office late in the evening and was devastated to see that the body of Jerry was still lying exactly where I saw him in the morning. He deserved much better. I took a deep breath and decided to give him what he deserved, a fitting burial in the garbage pile near my flat. But before that I needed to make his life with us memorable. So I took a photograph of the body his soul had left behind. πŸ™‚

So my dear friends, you can offer your condolences – flowers, candles, rat-cake, et al – at his PORTRAIT HERE!! πŸ™‚

Condolences in cheque and cash, can be addressed directly to my address – yes, I stay offline too. They will fund the non-profitable Jerry foundation, which is now set up for the welfare of his ever loving roommates! πŸ˜€

Rapchik Rants!! ;)

image010

There are somethings in life that are very important to know..and on the other hand, there are my posts…All I do is rant, ramble and anything not even remotely close to rocket science!! πŸ˜›

Well…as a matter of fact, I had been busy all this week to think of something to write…now my friends will never believe that I can get busy, especially with work that is…but they will also not believe that I need some free time to think of something crazy to write…else as you have seen, I write condolence like posts like the one I wrote about Saurav ‘Dada’ Ganguly…some were even kind even to mourn..err…comment!! πŸ˜€

Anyways…all said and done, today I decided that I will post something or the other and fill some server space with my junk..!!!Β  Well…let me update you about the going ons in my life, assuming from my vacuum like top floor that you guys are interested to read it…

1. In the building that I live in, there are 2 flats and a terrace on my floor…apart from the 2BHK flat that I live in, the other flat is a PG (Paying Guest) for gurrrlls…8 of them altogether…Now thats all ok..nothing much happens as the owner of the PG I heard is a very rugged person (still not sure if that one is a male or a female…sigh!)…anyways, coming to the point…Every morning as I get up quite early around 8, I have this habit of picking up the newspaper…and the first thing I get to see on opening the door are the under-garments of the gurrls hanging on the first string facing my flt in the open terrace…what a way to start the morning…sheesh…now you can guess how I know there are 8 gurrls in there!! I hate myself!! πŸ˜‰

2. Jerry in the last 2 weeks has grown big…saala…what he eats everything that we leave in the kitchen at night…even water bottles are not spared….He (or is it she?) doesnt come out of the kitchen, mainly because 1) we close the kitchen door when we are not using it and 2) we are always outside the kitchen making more noise than any other kid in the neighbourhood! Today I was singing aloud a customized song “Here’s the party tonight”…as an invitee to Jerry…Mortein rat kill, is the delicacy tonight for our uninvited dear dost!! RIP! Hmmph!!

3. How about having a set of parents who go morning to evening (say on a holiday) like – Get up you idiot, its 6am…Be on the table by 7 30am, else no breakfast…No using cell phone at home in the morning…No watching TV….No surfing the net…Ah! you read books in daytime, what a waste of time…Its 11 30 am, come for lunch…hey no singing in the house at noon…No sleeping, its just 2pm…OMG, its 3pm go take a nap…Hello its 4pm, time for tea…No internet now…Want to watch TV? gimme the remote….No listening to music after sunset…its 8pm, dinner time…ok surf the net, but only till 9 30pm…its 10pm, go to bed – phew…I may be exaggerating, but I have a friend who’s parents use 80% if not all of the commands that I have stated…daily and religiously!! My friend, god knows how was born and bought up…a total opposite of the parents…all credits and hats off for still managing to survive in that environment!! Phew!!

4. I am not writing CAT this year…no worries, as anyways IIM is not suitable for someone like me…I can’t deal with pressure as I am of the happy go lucky types…someone would someday be grateful that I decided not to write CAT and inturn helped someone who deserved to get into IIMs one competitor less!!! Why am I not writing? Well, my cousin is getting married on Nov 16th at Mangalore, and my CAT center is Bangalore…the distance (360 kms) and time wont allow me to be at both places on the same day! And CAT happens every year, not that marriage!! πŸ˜€

5. I am travelling by train tomorrow night…a direct one to Mangalore…16 hours journey from here…and I have no hopes of a PYT (pretty young thing) being even in the vicinity of my berth…I dunno whats wrong with me, but almost since a year whenever I train travel (usually 4 rides a month between Chennai and Bangalore) no PYT seems to be visible on the railway chart near my name!! Its always someone who is like 60+ and if its a woman, she seems to be no less than 65+!! Sigh!!
But I can’t hide the excitement of train travelling….being an optimist, am expecting some YT at least…P is no longer the criteria….Beggars can’t be the choosers, can they?? 😦

Well…lets see what happens…

So my dear friends, I will be off the Blogging circuit till next wednesday!!Β  Miss me, and not my posts (they are worth less…not that I am)!! πŸ˜†
