When life hands u a lemon, ask for the Tequila and the Salt

Sometimes it takes two, sometimes three and sometimes itz more....
I’m speaking 'bout the no. Of drinks it takes to hit people.
Here I'm deliberately avoiding any mention of those who would get sufficed with a few of what I call 'Ink-Filler shots' - S is one such girl - just give her one small Smirnoff+orange juice and she would conk off in no time.

These days Ladies Night is when the pubs rake in their moolah - the ladies seem to be happy with their highly-diluted-fruit-juice-type-of-drinks and the guys, with just looking at the ladies.

But whatever happened to me last night??? Generally it is while downing my third drink I feel like singing 'Aaj kal paav zameen par nahi padthe mere'...
but end of three drinks and a Flaming Shot n 3 Marlboro lights, I still find my feet firmly on the ground.
So ladies night is not when you are in a mood for real dhaaru n sutta (are the Hyd'badi gals listening???)

In other news, the Half Marathon and the 10K run was a huge success at Hyd, obviously 10K having more participants than the former. Statistics (which I dont bother to verify) would definitely attribute this to none other than Ms.Mirza, who was very much present at the run - no, not as a participant but as an ornament on the dais where other Tollywood stars and the much-booed Salman Khan (couldn’t they come up with a better role model???) were present....

The sun-rise (which seemed like the Halo of the Buddha) and the parachutes landing on the grounds made my waking, at an unearthly hour of 4.30am, really worthwhile.


(Warning: I'm no good when it comes to clicking pictures and these photos are testimony of that fact.)

I guessed it was Diya Mirza u were talking abt but I stand corrected going thru ur comments tab. Abt the pics well......look who's fishing now ;)

RT said...

I guessed Diya mirza too..:)
But anyway, the fire shot reminds me of my antics once when everyone persuaded me to try a flaming lamborgini (i know i am missing an 'h' somewhere, but what the heck) and finally it tasted nothing different from benadryl...:)

Sujit said...

Swathi said...

@raul

pallavi said...

thats a nice way to put it... it takes me 5 pegs to get a sheepish smile on my face.. LOL

Swathi said...

@Shradha
yaa she din't even walk till the parking lot... so much for the media hype...

@ff
ah! so hyd'badi gals have such a repu is it? or is it jus a case of coincidence?

@Rohan
oh no, Sania Mirza is the official Hyd'badi beti :)

@RT
now now i think too much hype is being given to Diya Mirza -whoz only claim to fame was her 4-6 minute cameo in 'Parineeta'..
lol@ benadryl - yaa most of the alcoholic stuff esp. red wine taste like these cough syrups - no wonder I ghet good sleep whenever I take any of those :)

@Sujit
well I wasnt walking with the parachute :) lol .. oh yaa the parachutes on display were really colorful

@the Monk

@Vicky

-itz jus that feeling of light headedness n then I put a stop.

Swathi said...

@Pallavi

Weary Hag said...
