book hunting with a candle... :)

yea thts a crazy thing sailesh and i did tonight. Well apart from walking all the way from ragigudda to my home that is, but yeah this time thr was no rain...
Today(by which i mean 22nd Feb, as i see time is almost 1am) was quite an eventful day, which means i may go on a rant on quite a few stuff , so ne readers out thr, you have been warned! :D

Morning passed away in checking mails,meeting 'n misc daily tasks...but noon was the best part. went to indi joe for lunch, this was the second time i was going there in as many weeks. Like many others, 've gone bonkers o'er the sumptuous lunch buffet they offer. The best part of the buffet apart from the yummy salads,pizza,chicken wings, is ofcourse the dessert section...fruits,pastries,ice creams 'n most imp Chocolate fountain! 'n yea since its a buffet it means its "unlimited"! :)
'm only glad that my office is not nearby, otherwise considering tht i can nvr say no to choc desserts, nor resist the temptation of such yummy calorie dripping food, i may had to get used to seeing a new me a lot sooner, 'coz its happening even now but @ a slower pace... :)

Well after that we went to Bagmane Tech Park, to have a look @ our new facility, which we are supposed to move into on April 8th. To say i was disappointed, would be quite an understatement. Almost all the people in our team felt a li'l let down. Some ppl seeing the i-flex 'n other wonderful buildings in the tech park, were rightly disappointed with the simple, old plain rectangular building. And it didn't even have a lake view. For me the most saddening thing was the look of our new cubicles! 'm not even sure if i want to air my exact impressions and what i think of it. It may be pushing it a bit far, tht too on a public blog. Apart from it, i had some minor gripes, which are just me. One of it was why do ppl use brown 'n some other color combo for buildings? Is it like a new fashion fad? i mean you see the UB city, and you can't help but wonder how did they arrive at such a horrible combination, brown 'n blue?!
Apart from this, the new cubicle layout (which is best suited to a services company btw), means, thr are no window cubicles! So, you can imagine how hard it will be to move from my current cubicle to one of those... :(

Anyways enuf of griping abt the new facility. Let me move onto the good things after that.Coming back from there, Ravi dropped me to ragigudda, btw traffic totally sucks, it will take min 1hr to reach ragigudda frm cv raman nagar, i.e if u r lucky.
neways i cudn't not goto CH after getting down @ ragigudda. So sailesh 'n myself went, 'n had a nice cake fudge. Vitta joined us after he finished his call with XXXXX :) After which we went to his dance class and had some/lots of fun looking at their dance practice. :)

we were supposed tol walk down to banshankari and plan got changed later to walk all the way till my home, as we had done once. On our way, happened to see this book shop with 85% discount. Infact what caught my eye was tht thr was no power 'n the shop keeper had just 2 candles. i thought it wud be fun to hunt for books with a candle and so we went in. And for almost 30-40 mins or, had absolute fun. we wud 've painted a eerie picture moving through that dark place with huge racks filled with books, holding a tiny candle... :D We kept coming across this 'queen of the damned' book by anne rice, and we had some silly conversation, regarding how it was a sign... :D then later me saying i wud prob come in his nightmare, holding a candle....'n so on... :D Well we finally ended up buying 5 books for 240, the 5 being - 'Dracula', 'Forrest gump', 'Children of Dune', 'Cider house rules' 'n ofcourse 'Queen of the damned' :D Not a bad job only with a :)

think this post has gone too long already, so won't go on further. After having matke paani puri in front of big bazaar, finally reached home at 9:50. Thats it, ur agony comes to an end, pat yourself on the back, for making through to this point... :D

@ranjitkm: yea true, but its my opinion 'n ppl do say tht my tastes generally differ frm normal junta so...may be its not so bad :)
