South plains to south west via south-west

WARNING: This blog was written when the vetti meter was way up in the red-zone. Use caution while reading!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

In an optimist's view: I am catching up on blog-reading, blogging, and other activities for which I didnt have time for so long.

In a pessimist's view: I am killing time, going through a boring time...

In a realist's view: Should plan better next time

Here is what it is in MY VIEW!!!:
If the title gave u a shock or a sense of non-sense, I am sorry to say, it was intended! Level of vettiness (idleness, boredom) knows no bounds when you have paid 3oo odd bucks to fly from Lubbock to San Jose and sit stuck up in an Econolodge's room #222, having nothing better to do than sipping a cuppa coffee and sapping the internet bandwith to the max. Had a chat with almost anyone free, read through some fancy blogs, even read some news... I AM BOREDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD.....

Well, though yesterday could have end up the same way, there was Karthik with me - so spent the day, talking talking and talking abt all the things happened since he left Lubbock last week! Also, saw a bit of Santa Clara while helping him scout companies. I must admit that it was fun. Moreover, for the first time in our lives, we tasted Ethiopian cusine... Well, anytime is funtime for me with K around... Evening was even more bliss with Deepak around and a trip to SARAVANABHAVAN!! You all MUST know what I ate: Kaima Idli, Sambhar Vada, Filter Coffee (ooooooooooooohhhhhhhh), mango lassi... DROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL on folks!!!

The same agenda was planned for today... but...

Fortunately for K and not so for me, he got a mail saying that he is getting an interview with TI this Wednesday. So... no (sc)outings today... and I dont wanna disturb him in his preps... for it is ever more critical... BUT WHAT WILL I DO ??? Walking down the streets alone is not my ball game unless I am very depressed... But driving... oooh yes... however... the rate of car rental (abt 50 bucks) is kinda ticklish... thinking... still thinking... I do have my GPS with me... so... thinking towards it...

However, some enlightening moments on the day so far has been the fact that K is getting some interview calls.. And the next best thing that will happen this evening is the arrival of Dummi Kuppam Vavval.. aka.. Pisthu!!! And then, I am expecting some... "just like old" times...

But till then... mein kya karoon? Time and impulsiveness will tell... Will I tell you that? I dont know... for I dont know when I will be vetti enough to write some more...
