The Buzz

A new section where I write stuff buzzed; well, whenever I'm actually sober enough to type and remember to write this stuff down anyway.

Had a blast today. Went out with my local crew. We haven't hung out for years it seems like. Gonna play some cricket tomorrow and then I'm getting my buzz on with a completely different set of people.

Hopefully...... Till monday's weekend update.

Baah

Baah is right.

I lied about the future being bright. It wasn't. I'm still stuck at work (1:51 am on a Sat morning) and no idea when I can get home.


I'm hungry, tired and not to mention a bit sleepy. And life goes on.

TGIF

You know, I wasn't really looking forward to today - hectic schedule and all. But so far the day has gone by pretty smoothly and it can't be that bad going ahead either.

Still, looking forward to the weekend. Gonna chill tomorrow with some friends, have dinner and take a few snaps.

Sunday will be spent having lunch with some people and helping my parents play catch-up on 24 season 2.
