Of Kite-Runner, Evam, Choco-Truffle and Bessie-Beach!! ;)

Yipppppppeeeeeeeee……yesterday evening I finished reading Khaled Hosseini’s ‘Kite Runner’…If you ask me as to why I am happy and excited?? Well…the book was gifted to me by a dear friend for my birthday in April…so May, June, July and now August…it’s taken me 4 good months to finish off this book!! Now tell me how can I not be happy? 😛
Not that I had not found time to sit and read…but there have been distractions lately that have taken a higher priority than reading…gone are those days when I used to skip my goodnight sleep, breakfast, lunch, afternoon nap, snacks and dinner in order to complete the book in hand (yes you are right, am damn slow at reading)…blame the internet and the close proximity to the Bessie Beach!! 😉

Yipppppppeeeeeeeee……I completed watching the movie ‘Kite Runner’ this early morning. I had downloaded a rip of the movie more than a month ago, but had waited to complete the book before I watched the movie. I actually began watching the movie just after finishing the book yesterday, but then my roomy made me an offer I couldn’t refuse…Bessie Beach!! 😛 And then I was tired by the time I got back…but chatted sensibly about all nonsensical things with a friend of mine in the US before she reminded me that it was quite late back home in India…I didn’t realize that it was already past 12, so said an alvida to her and then slept off!! But the fact that I had left the movie incomplete was playing somewhere in the mind I guess…believe it or not (this am saying to myself), I got up at 5 30 this morning and completed the movie before going back to sleep at 6 45am!! 😀
I next opened my eyes around 11am when a friend woke me up by calling on my cell and she yelled at me for forgetting to pay her internet bill…she reminded that today was the last day to do that…my bill had to be paid too…I stood in the wrong queue for about 45 minutes before I got to know that it was a cash payment queue…now who has cash? (Not me…my answer)…then I stood another 20 mins in the card payment line…sigh!

Yipppppppeeeeeeeee……this noon I had been to a theatre play by a group called Evam…they brought to life a play called “Odd Couple”…I went alone…but met 3 colleagues over there and we had a good time at the play!! 🙂 
Though originally written by Neil Simon, the 8 characters on stage bring it to life…full of emotions, ups and downs…It was all about 2 friends Oscar and Felix who are the odd couple that share an apartment and thats it…they had absolutely nothing else in common…its about how they deal with their lives, how they comfort each other in their own ways, how their friends react meanwhile, how this and how that…It was simply awesome, in places…and brilliant, otherwise…and in Karthik’s (the lead actor who played Oscar) words, “If you missed it, you just missed it!”! 😉

Yipppppppeeeeeeeee……I was longing to have the chocolate pastries from the nearest cake shop in Adyar called Cake World since quite some time…had no company each time…but today I gave an ultimatum to my roomies to accompany me…though they didn’t eat (I can’t believe they said no…shame shame guys), I had my fill on Chocolate Truffle…yummmmmy….and ya, the speech on calories have been postponed to tomorrow!! 😉

Yipppppppeeeeeeeee……my roomy just asked the inevitable question “Bessie Beach now…what say?”…its always cool and fun to go there late this night…chalo…till next time, signing off! 🙂
