History repeats itself

First things first.

A million thanks to everyone who prayed and greeted me for getting placed . Thanks folks. Await for the next post on placement stuff

Churning my memory back by 4 months:

It happened in a split second.. and my world came crashing down. I lost my focus in life.
Before you start to panic thinking I've entered depression, lemme put things back in perspective.The 1.9k glasses of mine (where 1.9k = 19 followed by 2 zeroes)? They broke!

They meant the world to me, yeah man. They went crashing down. And I literally lost focus! :P

"I don't mind spending so much for you", my Mom told me when she bought it, "but please be careful". That was the first thing that came to my mind. The entire day went pretty weirdly after that (happened pretty early in the day), when people found it difficult to recognise me without my specs (when the logic's supposed to be working the other way!).

Now, I'll have to shell out 475 bucks to get a new lens and get it fitted onto the 2 kuchis. :( I'm not asking my parents for it, and I feel too guilty to make my Mom pay. It wasn't my fault. It wasn't my friend's fault either. Some things in life just happen. And that means, the memory card reader I was planning to buy with the money I was putting aside for it, will have to wait.

Coming back to the present...

May 24 th.
7AM : I was in bed.

8AM : Yes, still i was in bed.

9AM : I had a terrific dream,I was a psychopath

10AM: My mom desprately tried to wake me up.

10:10AM: She was still trying.

10:30AM : Finally it was Dada on land line,after a vain effort in reaching me through my mobile, which was in silent mode.

Dada : Hello...Evlo nerama unna koopdrathu??

Me: [What a bright girl, S.S.colony la irunthu koopta inga epdi kekum??]..hmmm...

Dada: Ippo than elunthia?

Me: [again was stunned by her accumen]..aama

Dada: Seri seekiram kelambi vaa!

Me: what??

Dada: Inaiiku Lavanya trt tharaa...

Me: [now that revoked all my senses]..enna??

Dada: Seekiram kelambi inga vaa oru 1:30 ku...

Me: Paakalam.. i dunno what my commitments are...

Dada: peria ivaru.. seekiram kelambi vaa.. nan vaikkiren...[Dup...]

Me - started to search my brush...

After a well made chicori less coffee, and 4-5 wonder cakes I sat in front of my TV with "Finding Neverland" in my home theater. Whatae movie!!I skimed through it to see few nice scenes. It was 11:30 by then. I de-ordured myself. Then got some uncomfortable feeling abt who were all coming to the treat. Msged Dada and Pooka... Before they could reply, Lavanya called up and confirmed my presence in the treat. hmmm.. Kudutha vaakayum kudutha porulayum ennaikkum thiruppi thara maatan intha pasu. So had to take bath.Taking bath in a sluggish holiday that too at 12 noon is a curse. Really.

Left my home,fully loaded at 12:30 PM. It was long since I last went to Malligai Book Shop .Was astonished when the cashier asked "Enna pa thambi, romba naal aachu? Neenga keturuntha Na.Muthukumar books innum varala". I was stunned. Were it, general "ennapa thambi", its ok. But this fellow pin pointed what I asked. That was too good. I envied Malligai for having such a nice employee. Bought 5 books, all tamil for Rs.*** [Clue: One of the digits is zero] which left me with stingy,girlish amount in my purse. It was Lavanya's b'day tomorrow and thought of buying her Erich Seagal's Love story. But was not available.

Landed in Dada's home @ 1:35 PM sharp and something made me feel uncomfortable ; Any correct guesses?? Put it in the comments :-) hmmm.... Within next 10 mins we were in Germanus and had a riot of laughter after a long time. Muba was tearing with laughter with usual 'Dada'isms :-) .

After emptying Lavanya's purse, Dada with her 'hey-this-will-be-real-cool' idea bought a
bday cake for Lavs. Reached home buying that and there it happened.....I warned those girly-girls not to do cake-appification like silly kids. It all started when our owner of this 'cool' idea dipped Lavs in the cake. "OH NO NOT AGAIN!!" . I was there as just a spectator watchig all non-sense wherein, Dada, herself appifying cake topped all other non-sense as usual. Ha ha... It was the b'day baby Lavs who told " hey ! avana paaren... onnum panama irukkan..." They tried to soak me with cream, and I tried to escape only to land on my poor innocent little specs lying there and its in no way logical to think that it will bear my whole weight..

Ok, I think it's about time to get back to what this post was about.

See the title?

See the picture? :(

Rimmed glasses, here I come!

PS:Did I mention the plastic lens was supposed to be unbreakable?
