Let the friendship circle grow...

I was kind of busy at office - it is what most of the people call end of the day but I was here, still working away to glory, and then my cell beeped. Usually when some unknown number flashes @ the tiny screen, i am a bit skeptical thanks to the calls from all these cust. care execs.

The voice was cracking, and when the called identified him as 'Shanu' I was really clueless, but the moment he told ‘nomadicdreamer’ i recognized him, but before actually we started talking, he got another call and i kept the tweety down. After some more hours of head banging with some unruly, ruffian, un-civilized (PS: enough of this name calling, get on the subject, u stupid) network issue, I peeped out of my cube for some fresh air, and called Shanu back.

After the usual hi-how-r-u stuff, we quickly decided to catch up the same day, and by around 9.30, i found myself comfortably stretched on his beanbag, munching some lovely cake made by his granny :-D
believe it or not - the first thing we did after the usual -hi-how-r-u is to start arguing - me a Ferrari fan and he a McLaren fan, and soon, the room was filled with sparks and flames... but still, i believe Schumi is god of speed, Shanu :-D

We didn’t take any time to break ice - there was not much ice to break, blame it on the blog world :-D we hopped from F1 to photoshopping to rides to tech to business to partying and man, i almost lost track of time. and yeah, we also played carIQ on facebook ;). Had to break the meeting and get back on the saddle of Jeevs to reach home, so said good bye promising that we will meet soon again... and I hope to keep that word. Thanks for the wonderful time, Shanu.
