The week that was

Annnnnddddddd....the weekend's here - eeeehaw :-D! Significant accomplishments for the week:
  • Finished the Da Vinci Quest successfully. The eternal optimist that I am, now I am waiting to receive my cryptex in the mail :-P!
  • Managed to work on a couple of days inspite of sorely lacking on sleep. The milestones and goals actually accomplished on those days are minor technical details which shall not be gone into.
  • At long last, got out of my "got to eat every single edible thing in sight" phase (I think). Hurrah!
  • Watched the movie "Meet the Fockers" - I am going to write to the movie producers regarding compensation for the mental trauma I had to undergo resultantly. Better still, I would like to have them shot.
  • Voluntarily ran around the park as a part of the fitness class routine. Sure, I sounded like a leaking-tyre with all the huffing and puffing after that. But - I RAN.
  • Done with reading Dorothy Parker's short stories. They are all slices of life and most of them have an underlying tinge of sadness to them. A good read - still, should pick up a total masala book next.
  • Watched three Balayya videos. I have now shifted loyalties from Vijaykanth to Balayya as the ultimate stunt-master. Here are the videos if you would like to see them. Statutory warning: watch at your own risk!
If you plan to watch them, for your own mental and physical well-being, do take adequate breaks between videos and do not dwell on them for too long. And yes, laws of physics are still valid for the rest of the world.
  • Wanted to use rocketpost to post on my blog. And it crashed successfully on my very first attempt. Some explosive writing here, huh ;-)!

And so life goes on! Have a jolly, merry weekend folks :-)!

Arch,
:) Yes you can do a lot more if you r not blogging huh? ;)

The Quest.. darn I was busy and couldnt get to the last puzzle until the evening. :( So though I finished, I am sure I wont be in the first 10,000.
I wont even take the trouble of looking at the videos ;)

>>At long last, got out of my "got to eat every single edible thing in sight" phase (I think).

Work, Work Out, some reading, a mid week movie..Hmmmmm, except for the the 'Quest'.... that pretty much sounds like 'My Week' :)....!. Have a blast over the weekend!.

Prabhu said...

Me clean bowled by the videos.
Avadhaara purushan - Balayya.
Engal Annan - Balayya.
Manavaadu - Balayya!

Archana Bahuguna said...

Jogging and all that :-), Good. Keep it up! I went on jogging last summer for 2-3 weeks and at that time I thought I would be continuing forever but since then its been on the to-do list of everyday :-(.
Have a great weekend!

Prabhu said...

Meet the Fockers - like every other sequel this one was also a damp squib! I havent seen a good sequel in years.
Got to eat every single thing :: huffing/puffing, we see the connection :)

Archana said...

Prasanna - thank you :-)! Weekend almost gone now though :-(!

Saranya - ah, I see somebody is hinting sth! Shilpa was kind enough to send me an email reminder on the last day and I immediately followed up :-D! What dieting? I love food too much to diet - now you know where the problem lies ;-)!

T - what a coincidence - one of my Telugu friends was verbally describing this very same video (include Sonali Bhendre's "my hero" look - lol) and you post the link here. Thank you :-)!

Rahul - good to know I am normal :-D!

Prabhu - lol :-)! Have you shifted loyalties too now?

Archana - jogging and me are usually poles apart too. That's why voluntarily running in fitness class was a big deal :-) - "continuing forever" - sounds like one of my usual (but never followed up) plans ;-)!

Prabhu - lol :-)! I saw the connection too - thats why had to take steps ...

Shilpa said...

I'm waiting for the quest results too.
Hopefully one of us shd get it :-P

I am still recovering after-the-semester. Shd get back to TP soon. heheheh.
