Emptiness

This weekend we tried to be ‘cool’ and watch Mission Impossible 4… but secretly we were happy when we didn’t get the tickets and gleefully settled for Ladies vs Ricky Behl. I don’t know if the movie was really entertaining, or it’s just the fact that I am suffering from the trauma of watching a lot of bad films lately, but the truth is I quite enjoyed it.
Conclusion: I am NOT cool.

This weekend I tried to be ‘intellectual’ and read The Argumentative Indian. Instead, I spent the whole of Sunday curled up with Dilbert and the Way of the Weasel, laughing like I haven’t laughed in a long time.
Conclusion: I am NOT intellectual.

This weekend I argued with my dad because he refused to be supportive, logical and understanding. Instead, he proved that I am a sulking 3-year old with an attitude problem.
Conclusion: I am adopted.

This weekend I went back to my college photographs, trying to convince myself that I have grown up. Instead, I cried.
Conclusion: I have NOT grown up.

This weekend I decided NOT to get depressed over Christmas and New Year. Instead, I kept wishing that I could get away.
Conclusion: India-Australia Boxing Day match better be something special.

This weekend was empty… like most others

HaHa ... That reminded me that I came back from leaves after 2 weeks of frolic determined that now I will make a difference to the way I work and the work itself since I stand rejuvenated ... After just 1 day of work yesterday I am drained and skipped work today ... Conclusion - Work is irrevocably damaging to the spirit ......

All in disagreement with the conclusions raise your hands. (Long pause) Let the records show that no hands were raised. The council unanimously agrees with your conclusions. Meeting adjourned.

@mohit
couldnt agree more... work is indeed irrevocably damaging to spirit. i know people say that the world is going to come to an end in 2012. but it would be nice to have a guarantee though. Then I can put in my papers tomorrow and make so much better use of the next year...

carpe diem
it's sad really, when in the toughest of times, even your family chooses to be rational.

@neil
