Things to do on a lazy Saturday

9.00a: Open eyes slightly. Aw gosh! Its only 9.00a and its Saturday. Roll over, snuggle closer to the comforter and go back to sleep.

9.30a: Open eyes again. Aw gosh! Its only 9.30a. Wait a minute! Hey, its Saturday - I don't need to go to work. Jump out of bed.

9.45a: Make chai and take it to the coffee table along with the "marie" biscuts.

10.00a: Turn on TV. Watch Showbiz India. Man, that Tanisha looks so ugly. Uday looks uglier. Hmm, I didn't realize 'Karam' had a nice sounding song. God, is Abhishek really going to marry Ash?

11.00a: Bollywood news and entertainment quota for the week met. Grab 'Emma' and continue reading it. Mmmm, I like Jane Austen novels.

12.15p: Feeling hungry. Maybe I should cook good food *just* for myself.

1.30p: Eating chapathis and self-made dal, raitha & sabzi. I rock or what?

2.00p: Lying down in front of the heater, reading 'Emma'.

2.15p: Aaaah, I feel so warm, comfortable and sleepy. This is how cats must feel when they lie down in front of the fire-place.

2.30p: Now am covered with comforter and window shades are closed. Zzzzzz.

3.30p: Wake up with a start. Continue reading book.

4.00p: Make carrot kheer.

4.30p: Feeling very virtuos while drinking kheer. I know how to pamper myself. Wish I could only play the pampered part and let someone else do the pampering though.

5.00p: Hmm, maybe should take a shower.

5.15p: Finish putting away the washed clothes from last laundry-day which were still in laundry-bag, before going for bath.

6.15p: Wow, that was a refreshing bath. I *love* soaking in the bath tub.

6.30p: Drinking chai, I remember the kutti oil-lamp brought from India. I light it and feel even more virtuous.

6.45p: Feeling a bit homesick. Could do with some company about now.

7.00p: Finish looking at all the pictures from India trip for the nth time.

7.55p: Finish chatting with neighbor and get wireless network set up. Am using his wireless network and the speed (after my pathetic dialup) is just cool :-).

8.00p: Good net connection, good surfing speed - start blogging :-D!

p.s. I still have a couple of more hours to go to bed. But I am very confident that I will do absolutely *nothing* useful whatsoever in that span of time. Every once in a while, I simply love to just LAZE around on a holiday.

Ricky said...

How come you are able to wake up 9am in the morning on a weekend? I cannot imagine, its toooo early for me... :)

Archana said...

T, oh, poor you! Hmm, do smaller consulting companies necessarily imply lesser work :-)? Anyways, good luck to you :-)!

Shilpa, true, true :-D!

Gingko, na, na, not vetti. The word is somberi :-)!

Archana, atta girl! You said it :-)!

Archana said...

Thanu, I just have the free cable. So mebbe India Waves won't show up for me!

Ricky, ah, you don't know that I had a 3-day weekend. So I could afford getting up "early" one day so that I could get a heads up on the process of being lazy ;-)!

Archana Bahuguna said...

Archana said...

That's what the news channels say :-(. I hope not though! He deserves better!

Saranya Kishore said...

No matter how much work ther may be, Saturdays are the best, to laze around, we can worry the night before work week :)

Nice one Arch. Carrot Kheer, still left, I can drop by you know

Archana said...

Heheh, its "have" actually. The thing is, I always reserve the last bit of any vacation to mourn the return to work :-P! But I don't think I will do that today...

Sorry, all carrot kheer khattam. I eat at twice the speed with which I cook :-D!
