Serendipity - Dear Diary II

As the movie got over, I turned to Brad and asked him "If you ever lost me in the crowd, would you search for me too in just the same way as Jon?"

He replied "Arre ... I finally get rid of you, and you want me to search for you at the end of it?? I will be too busy celebrating ...."

I slapped his cheeks playfully.... he held my hand, and kissed it instead.

We laughed, snuggled even closer and got back to the movie.

Do you think he loves me?

Dear Diary - 1

Now we can go on....

Dear Diary,
Guess what??? I had a great day today !! As I walked out of class today morning, that really cute guy Brad walked up to me and started discussing assignment 3 and my thoughts on the tangible effects of the Impressionist movement on our culture. As we talked, he suddenly said "This is soo interesting ! Do you wanna talk more over coffee? " Ofcourse I said yes. We went to Java Beans which is this amazing place that serves great coffee. Sat there for some 3 hours talking !! We gel so well together and agree on everything !! Its almost like we were meant to be together for ever !! As we kept talking, we didn't notice how the time flew by and suddenly, it was lunch time and we were hungry, so we went to the Zodiac for lunch. 5-star hotel, dim lighting, polite waiters, and ofcourse, a hunk sitting right opposite me - what more do I need from life ??? The conversation was wonderful - he kept looking into my eyes while he talked, and it was soo cute !!

But then in the middle of this perfect lunch, the weirdest thing happened ! My glasses started hurting ... so I took them off, and kept them next to me at the table, and suddenly I realized that I was making the weirdest facial expressions !! I became very concious of my facial muscles - I could feel each one move and as I became concious about it, I obviously became very stiff. Now I didnt want to look stiff - I wanted to look friendly and cute - so I started making my face muscles move in more exaggerated movements - and my smile became bigger and my eyes crinkled up even more, and I ofcourse became even more conscious. It was BAD - very BAD. Anyways, then I put my glasses back on - to hide my face and then the whole thing was better.

I am meeting him again tomorrow for dinner .... What should I wear? What should I wear?? My pink top maybe...??? Or maybe the blue one?

Will go and ask Saira what she thinks...
Bye for now,
Love
Natasha



MY Diary:
I finally asked that hot chick Natasha out for coffee today. Gave her some lines on some abstract art movement, and then smoothly said "Lets talk this over at coffee" - guess what? It worked.
Took her out to Java Beans, then lunch at Zodiac. She kept talking, I kept agreeing... I tried really hard to look only at her face and her eyes through the conversation - it didnt work though ;))...
In the middle of lunch, she took her glasses off - I think that was to impress me or something - so that was great. But she put them back on real quick - I hope that wasn't cause I said something stupid and she got turned off... :(

My friends think I'm very cool for taking her out .... I suggested some other stuff too - so that just makes it better. I'm meeting her for dinner tomorrow.... lets just hope.

Brad.

Movie Time !!

Mom, sis and I went for a movie a few days ago(28th Jan). It was a last minute decision, at 8.30pm I casually mentioned how it would be nice to watch Rang De Basanti, at 8:40pm we were all dressed up and out of the door.

Since the movie has just been released, its running house full in most of the major theatres... so the plan was to go to this small theatre in our locality, where tickets are 50 Rs, and the place is _never_ house full.

But as the saying goes, "never say never". We reach there to find a nice notice saying "balcony is full", and there is a HUGE line of people standing for stall tickets (even cheaper at 40 Rs). I gamely go and stand in the stall line.... unfortunately within 18 seconds of standing in the line, I realized that the only people in the line not smoking were busy eating paan (and then there was me - I was neither smoking nor chewing paan - was standing and making up such statistics instead).

So there I stand in the line wondering how mom and sis (and I !!) will bear such smoky red people for the 3 hours of the movie, when this really FAT guy, also smoking paan, approaches mom dearest and offers balcony tickets for 100 Rs each. The first thing that strikes me is 100% profit - thats a v cooL deal for him (I seem to be a very statistic oriented person nowadays).

Anyways, mom bargains for 80, I complain about the smoky red people, and say no point of spending 80/100 Rs for sitting with them ! FAT "blackseller" guy refuses to budge from his 100 Rs demand.... Mom agrees, I insist that this is ridiculous... we can go to some nice posh theatre instead (except that they r all too far away, and no tickets avaiable anyways)

Mom asks him "These are good seats right?" He says "Don't worry Madam, I am here only, mera dhanda yahi hai", my sis agrees "Yeah mom, I know him - he is always here", and I am left wondering when did my sis come to this theatre anyways !!!

Anyways, then we are asked (v rudely at that) to STAND IN LINE TO ENTER THE THEATRE ! IF YOU DON'T STAND IN LINE, WE WILL NOT LET YOU ENTER !

Meet a few people from the locality in the line :), wait inside the theatre for 15 minutes(felt like 15 hours with all that small talk though) before the movie starts....

Finally, the movie starts, very very good movie, bad interval when there was a line for samosas as well (as if they are giving them for free), good movie again, and then it was over.

12 midnight, no autos available to go home, mom panicked as usual while we searched, found an auto and finally our 9-12 adventure was over !

Good fun :)
