And did I have my enough?

Hehehe.. no., not yet.. The next getaway is already on the draftboard being planned :P. This time, the excuse is a friend's marriage. Plan is., a drive down to cochin, bless the couple and hit the road to goa :) Hmm., the last valparai trip has left us longing for another longer road trip. Looks like we are close to it :)

Well., I know.. 'fckin lucky bastard' that I am.. :P

Jazz in the Jungle

That was what the Madras Hash House Harriers decided to label the event. 19th, 29th of November, we crashed at a private estate property in Bakrapet, some 29 km from Tirupathi. The location was awesome. Hills all around., and a road winding in the middle. Thorny, shrubby greenery on the plains and more trees and such on the hills. It was a good view.

The first run on the 19th was through rough terrain. We kept running over hills and ditches that we dont know how many hills we climbed. The trail brought us back to the road to the first water stop. Downed dont-know-how-many mugs of 'sangria'. The second part took us to the top of a mountain from where we could enjoy 'bloody mary' viewing the scenic beauty of the area around. Gosh., sometimes you do wonder 'this is a beautiful world' :P.

The trail was very nice through the bushes and the rocky terrain. I had my legs badly bruised because of the thorns in the way. However, still it was worth it :) Later in the circle i got christened with my hash name after being baptised by beer.. the purest form of liquid a hasher knows.. :P The festivities began soon., with the rock band starting off with the jazz notes.. A bon fire was lit up., all sorts of cooked meat came around. And of course, the barrels of beer was always full :) The party went on till late night. Ended with some 10 of us sitting around the bonfire watching the video of 'The Wall' being played on a huge screen.

The second day's run was planned keeping in mind that noone was sober the previous night. So., yeah everyone was running around with a lousy hangover. But still it was awesome. The way back was quite tiring and no body was in the mood to jump around. But the beers still kept flowing :)

Surely, there is nothing like downing chilled beer, early in the morning.. right after you brush (er. brushing or not is still debatable :P)

On On..


This month's getaway..

Well., the moment i returned from b'lore last month., the next trip was already in the plans :P So., this time I'm off to Bakrapet. We are gonna be camping in the middle of a jungle. We've been assured that the closest communication facility to the outer world is 25km away. And yeah., no chance for mobile phones. The network would be down like it was jammed by a mobile jammer :)

And., after all the running and hopping.. its gonna be a beer filled tribal dance around a bonfire to the jazz tunes of an amature rock band. :) Yipppppppppppeeeeeeeee....

But well, right now I'm still in office.. and my yesterday has not ended yet. Hmm., got to crash.


Still discovering music..

I dont know what the hell., I'm still discovering music. Today., I happened to come across "Simon & Garfunkel". And yeah., I've never heard of them before.. and all mouths around me opened in wonder. Hmm.., a couple of weeks back., the same happened when I first heard "dire straits" and again managed to panic a whole lot of people.

Hmm., I guess I have a pretty long way to go :P


heart broken

Yeah., its my turn now. to look all pale and sad. Fate. I'm in no mood to dump it here. I think I trust my mug of beer better.


Test drive??

"Our village girl gets engaged to a recently-urbanized-village-boy. Our man., decides to know his lady a little better before commiting the knot and plays romantic tunes. Our innocent girl could not see the storm coming and danced well. It was all first love bliss. Sweet talking and emotional dialogues. Our man made sure he got all the details out of the girl. The girl was too dumb to ask questions. Girl innocently says that she wants to help her parents meet out the financial troubles they have in some way. Guy reports to his momma. Momma gets mad. Guy forgets about girl. Girl
cries. Boy's momma shouts at girl saying she is not what she expected out of a 'good village girl'. Girl's momma dissappointed with girl. Now., girl left alone broken hearted. Guy., still licking his candy wiping his fingers on his momma's saree."

Well., I wish I had a gun to shoot these fuckers right between the balls. These morons are a general disgrace to our `male species`. If he wanted to play on his momma's lap., why the fuck look around for a woman to marry.
