Haul idle-period

Of late, my daily routine’s been something like this - wake up, eat, surf the net, eat, walk around the house looking for something to do, surf the net, eat and finally, sleep!

Of late, my daily routine’s been something like this - wake up, eat, surf the net, eat, walk around the house looking for something to do, surf the net, eat and finally, sleep!

On the odd weekend ‘walk around the house…’ gets replaced by ‘walk around the house with a friend looking for something to do’. The getting-into-college celebrations are over and I have fed over five mouths with expensive food. Nothing eventful seems to be in the pipeline till college starts and my sanity is now at the mercy of those random spontaneous plans which are made every now and then, if made at all.

But I did watch Delhi Belly recently and it made up for all the accumulated lethargy and boredom of the week; a brilliant Indian comedy I have seen in a very long time, not glamourised and not a far cry from reality (at least behaviour-wise). It’s nice to know there’s been progress in terms of social acceptance of the ways of the youth. (Can I consider a career as a film critic?)

Come to think of it, this little time we have till college starts may be our last long haul idle-period. Not that we won't have idle-periods in college (who are you kidding?)
