Sunday — 04 Jamadi ul Awwal 1426 — 22 Jyaistha 1927 — 12 June 2005

It would seem that I have actually come down to Sunday to Sunday blogging. Khair, well and good. It is as it is. It will be as it will be. And it shall stand as it shall stand. And I shall shut up blabbering as I shall shut up blabbering.

A couple of things for you guys to enjoy over the week and question my sanity and lack of brain power.

Yesterday was one of the most interesting days of my life. Two of my friends who I hang out with just got into jobs or new jobs two weeks ago. We keep meeting up over the weekends. Yesterday we all met up for food at about 5 at Boating Basin. Which for the uninitiated in the city of Karachi is an area facing an inlet of the sea and it has a lot of cheap yet good restaurants catering to many different cuisines. My God that was a long sentence.

We kept eating, smoking, talking, haggling, squabbling, drinking, arguing, laughing, sniggering, telephoning and smiling for 5 hours until 10. After working more than twelve hours every day of the week yesterday was the most interesting hang out session in a very very long time. I remember that two of us had the strangest argument when we were very drunk one day. To this day I maintain that we were talking about different things and the other guy says that we were talking about the same thing. The discussion that we had yesterday were ever more strange.

I smoked a total of 12 Dunhill lights. I drank a total of 1.75 Litres of Pakola. I ate a total of 3 Shawerma specials. For anyone who has been to Qasr e Nakheel, this must seem very very extraordinary.

Khair, it was thoroughly enjoyable. I am sure that psychologists should study the effects of long working hours on young males who then get together to hang out. And in that case I am sure we would have been a very very interesting case.

And now that I have told you what I have been doing during the week. I will further illuminate your life with a thing that I do at times. Becoming two rich English women having tea together. This is as opposed to my usual multiple personality thing with me and Jalal. This is Gertrude and Petunia. When the psychosis is heightened then Esmeralda also joins in. Such as was the case yesterday.

Gertrude : Oh, Petunia darling, how do you do?
Petunia : Gertrude angel, fine thank you.
Gertrude : You brought along a friend, how capital, now we can have tee for three. Har har dee har har … tee for three … har har.
Petunia : Har har dee har har, how awsomely edible your jokes do become Gertrude. This is my friend Esmeralda Hoppingdollop from Herefortendorshofortstreepshire.
Gertrude : You dont mean from Tenementelentaly House?
Esmeralda : The very same.
Gertrude : Oh how interesting! I have heard stories about that. Lady Darclays used to tell me such horror stories about it.
Petunia : Oh Gertrude you angel, you have finally managed to get that wonderful tea, Lady Earl Gray for us?
Gertrude : Yes Petunia, I had a favour pending from Lady Hardcock for referring her to that wonderful French Cook Monseiur Jacques Pompeidou.
Esmeralda : You dont say! Does this mean that Jacques has left Lord Heatherwelldon’s service.
Gertrude : I am afraid so.
Petunia : Oh, do say, noone really did like Lord Heatherwelldon. Remember how he misbehaved with Laetitia Charmichealengelano.
Esmeralda : A gentleman would never call a womans bosoms too large for her clothing under any circumstances!
Gertrude : Completely agreed.
Petunia : Oh, how capital! SCONES!
