Chick flicks et al.


Don't you think one and a quarter days is consolation for a WEEKEND... I mean, what ever happened to rejoicing on Friday as if it was some sort of a festival...????Friday has lost its charm and so has Saturday mornings...Its annoying to wake up when the rest of the world is tucked away warmly in dreamland!
Anyways, with all that self-pity, began the Saturday evening, and I had become a Zen Buddhist in not expecting any fun. Meeting up for a coffee with a bunch of giddy-heads to discuss the love-life of every person we ever-knew was about enough energy I thought I could muster after a hard days work (phew!) Sudden change of planetary motion and we headed out for a stay over.
This one brought back college hostel memories when staying up till 4 am was the norm, and not a soul would dare wander about during the day. Fighting for pillows and cozying up with warm soup, we began watching 'Raising Helen', debating on how difficult we were as adolescents. Which was followed by more commercial breaks, more channel squabbles and we settled to watch 'Legally Blond’; By now, the continuum of absolutely non-cryptic, laughable and don’t-expect-logic kinda movies were growing on us to the extent that we made a plan to wake up at 7 and go for 'what happens in Vegas' at 'red lounge'(which I assumed no one would be able to wake up for and would be canned eventually). Come 7 am, everyone shocked me with being wide-awake. My only way out to sleep some more was complaining about how I have earned my Sunday and threw a tantrum about not wanting to wake up which failed and I had to whine my way to Red lounge.
Red lounge is one theatre that completely pampers you with uber-comfortable recliners and blankets, in their attempt to make you feel like it was your living room you were watching a movie in (and I must say, they more than succeeded at this)! Popcorn and coke for breakfast, we were all set Americans a run for their money! And 'Vegas' was a total entertainer, made me smile smugly and exclaim aloud 'Ah! Chick Flicks’.
In all, I pronounce chick flicks as the ultimate cure to shrunken weekends! (Note: more effective when watched back-to-back and effects improve with excess dosage)

They say that facts can be compromised for a good fiction but this is a little too much considering that it was YOUR idea to watch the 0730 hrs movie even after hitting the bed at 0400 hrs..

The only way to sum up this post is Liar Liar!! Pants on Fire and in case the lie is BIG burn the PIG!! =D

Hey you!! Dont you crib about saturdays not being saturdays anymore...in some parts of the world, people toil on SUNDAYS, damn it!!!!! Stop being a kvetch & spread the glory of such hard workers!! :)

Looks like you had a gala time, anyway! :) And am surprised your friends managed to wake you up at that time without gettin slapped or kicked in their bellies! :) But come to think of it, had you tried any of those stunts considering (i gather) it was you who suggested a movie, forget the weekend, YOU would have shrunk! :) And i need to have a long conversation with death (sounds funny!)...kind person that! making friends with the not-very-sane sorts as well!Or did you fool her too, as usual with your histrionic skills??!;) :)

Jokes apart, a breezy log this!Good fun! :)
