whatta weekend...

After a maddening Friday evening at office which robbed me out an evening at LOR, i was home by late night and was looking forward for Saturday – looking forward coz if everything went according to my plans, it will be a super duper day. And boy, did it go like i planned.
I woke up early and after all my morning chores, set out by 8.15 to pick up my friend A who was in b'lore for an official visit. I was damn excited to meet A, and when i reached her place, she was all ready and without much delay, she hopped on my bike and we three - me, A and Jeevs where out in the streets, wandering aimlessly. A was kind of jittery, so I was taking Jeevs really slow, and when i got an open road, I gave A her first taste of adrenaline rush ( I hope u liked it, A). I was feeling hungry, so off we went to 'south Indies', a very fine vegetarian restaurant for a lazy Saturday morning breakfast. After a long breakfast and chat, we where on road again, and we roamed around till 1, and we both never closed our jaws. We had so much to talk between us that the time just flew like an arrow. Thanks for the really nice time with you, A.
After dropping her back, I went to meet my friend P. me and P went to some inroads of Shivajinagar to buy a pair of army boots for me, and for some sundry shopping for P. On the way back, we stopped at Lazio and had a nice steaks lunch. I dropped him back and picked up my dream air rifle. Shez a beauty - a Daws .22caliber. Will post her photo soon. After picking her up, i went to meet Shanu and together we went to attend the Indiblogger meet at Microsoft office.

Man, was the meet fun. we really had a good time (though at times we said we could have better carried some rotten tomatoes ;) ) and after meet, we met some MS guys - and man, they rock :-D especially Sandhya, Deepak and Reza (pardon me if I haven’t got the spelling correct)
Reached home late night and man, every thing went down as i planned. But Sunday was a whole another story. I had plans to go and check out a bullet first, and then take a friend to a camera shop to buy a D40 for him, but at the last moment both plans got changed and i end up at Jubi's place by 10.30. By 11.15, one more fried - Phijo - joined us, and we lazed around till evening. Had a bit of shopping to do, and on the way back dropped in to see one more friend. Man, it was a rocking weekend.

Yo XH. Nice snaps, and reading your blog, it does seem you had the best weekend.

Questions ...the right column of links that you have (blogs you like)...how does one include that?
