WL Meet-up - Chennai's Day Out



This it folks....the day we were waiting for....
We waited, we sweated....and then we met....
Chennai Meet has officially begun

The destination was Pizza Hut....nice place...nice chicks around...food had to be great..its pizza's for lord's sake :P
Kingsley was the first one there...standing dumbfounded....guess he searched inside for us....hope he didnt gt hold of some other gal thinking her to be aarthi :P
lols...so when we reached, john was already there...i was meeting him for the first time.....he's pleasant company...talks way too less and very much matured.
Jeez am J

okays we went in and chatted...the waiter was eyeing us with suspicion....hehe...and we kept on chatting. Aarthi and Kings started in Tamil and everything went over my head...i could only mumble ser seri from time to time. Gulshan rang up...said she was on her way!! she found an auto but had to run after it :P
She arrived bout 20 mins later...all in pink and yay!! we were 4 of us then.....

We chatted about ourselves.....i dun wanna get into details...but yes people...it was fun....we had a rollicking time....thoorika arrived late after we finished our pizza's hehe...

Over to Gulshan

I never knew apart from writers it will introduce me to some great friends too…when I came to know via Stephen that he has met a few writer’s from Lounge, I used to wonder if I will ever be able to meet anyone of them…coz the only guy I knew from Chennai in Lounge was Kings and till then we were as good as strangers….but finally Her Highness (Artz..she looks like one) descended from heaven, read Delhi (bad comparison :D) to earth, read Chennai….met her Prince Charming (FL…he is doesn look like though :P) and decided to meet some poor mortals like us….lol….


To cut the story short….it was WL’s first anniversary and some brilliant person(i-don’t-know-who) decided to keep a meet in Chennai…yes u read it right..here..in Chennai..the one in Tamil Nadu..Gosh I was so excited so happy and so down in fever ….my mom said no..even before I told her Sunday’s program..she made sure that I am on my bed, in my room, at the most if I can go anywhere it was within the four walls of my home ….poor me…but then I decided in the morning itself…I have to go..so I jumped out of bed, hopped and played around, fought with my brother and mom finally irritated..shooed me out from home :D :D

I was late but was finally there….after a lot of hungama of course..the place was new for all of us..so everyone was confused ….FL ko pakdo :P….but when I met them it was awesome…superb…too good…I don’t have words to describe…not even for a second I felt that I was meeting some new people…it was like as if we knew each other….we started with introduction and some leg pulling and reminders to FL that he wasn’t on date :P….then Kings ordered…oh I forgot to tell that we were in PizzaHut …which poor people had to select coz of me …because I said no to Mocha…sorry guys :(….


Kings was a calm and composed person of course the most mature and the “Gentlemen” type of guy…he was just as what I imagined him through his blog writings :)..felt great to meet him…

Artz was a great friend…a charming personality…she is literature graduate and handling some Building stuff business….wow..how do you even link it dear…anyways was fun all the time…cracking jokes and hi5’ing all the time….she was the second most mature person…above all I was wondering how she was juggling all the work and these frequent meetings at the same time..She was kind of a lost friend found :)

Freelancer a.k.a Mridu was really irritated because of me...he was even going to throw me out of the auto : ( heartless :D :D ….i kept pulling his leg all the time... and he kept cursing me because I didn’t leave him alone with Artz even on way :D :D…on a serious note…he was a great guy..fun to be with…think we can be great friends…and yeah..he is last in the list of maturity :P :P lol

Thoorika..she was late…very late…atleast she made me feel that I am not the only late lateef :P…she was kind of silent but smart….calm and composed ..her signature words being “Khalo” and “chalo” :D :D….I don’t think I heard anything else from her mouth whole day long…nice girl though..she dint step in water but as it was supposed to be…we got drenched way back home :D :D

Arv was supposed join us..but couldn’t because of his some commitments…anyways hoping to see him next time :) We spoke to Prats, Ste and other Bangalore people also :) They too met and it seems and enjoyed a lot :)

After PizzaHut it was beach..Kings couldn’t join us…but then we four were there…had fun….I made them all walk miles for Arun’s Icecream..hehehe..hope they aren’t cursing me….I was supposed to leave back at 3.30 or max by four…but then I didn’t wanted to leave and by the time we parted it was already 6.30….we all decided to meet next weekend for movie..Bidding goodbye to FL and Artz me and Thoorika left for home..and thus ended the tiring and happy day :)

I was sure of catching fever..but wow I was able to go to office today and write this post :)..i think happiness took over tiredness and fever was shown way to home :D :D I am too excited to meet these people and all of them again this coming weekend…hope it ll be even more fun and we ll bond even better :)

Love you loads guys…thanks for bearing me throughout the day :)

Heena


over to artz--


On Sunday, we experienced what we have always talked about – TWL is a family. Since you know about almost everything after reading Heena, I would just sum it up in a few words.

It is always good when you meet the one whom you know in this virtual world. Few months back I got a chance to meet Sandeep, my big bro! J

This Sunday I woke up wit a lot of excitement. I was going to meet some more members of my virtual family – Kings, Heena, Fl, Thoorz, Arv…

Sadly, Arv could not make it because of other commitments he had. Me, FL, Kings, Thoorz and Heena kept chatting… not even for a second did we realize that we were meeting for the first time. It seemed as if we knew each other since years.

Now I would just want to say a few things to all of you whom I met –

Heena - You rock! I just could not believe that you are just 19!! Your sense of humour just amazes me all the time! J You have an intense persona… very matured and I just loved your company. It was great meeting you and I hope our bond grows real strong!

Kings – Start talking da! I mean… he looks really matured, very focused sort of a person. Thank you for bearing with us throughout the Pizza Hut torture sessions. Lolz!

Thoorika – She has that killing cute smile on her face. She is so polite, so quiet… There is that warmth you feel around this girl. I just love your ‘KHAO’ and ‘CHALO’. The next time we meet I should see you TALKING!!

FL – Do I really have to say anything about you? Don’t you guys know it all? He is a jester, a sweetheart, a wonderful human being with a heart of gold. You rock!

The awesome beach time we enjoyed will be cherished by me always. Thanks to you Mr.Freelancer! :P

Thank you all for making it to the TWL Chennai meet. The feeling that you all have left me with can’t be described… it was wonderful. I love you guys…you are just fantastic



FL speak-

okays...me back again....John had to leave soon....pity arun, arv and dr.kumar coudn't make it. They would have loved the beach...Someone teach heena how to sit in an auto...she keeps falling off. We went to the beach and did some rifle shooting...i was showing off my nearly impossible to learn tricks :P
It was a day to remember.....a day where john nearly turned into a waiter, a day where aarthi nearly became smart....a day when thoorika nearly became Valentino Rossi...a day when Heena nearly became the next P.T Usha after showing off her sprinting skills behind an auto...and a day when i nearly revealed my true identity as BOND :P
Mostly it was a day of the Lounge....a lounge that sprung back to life.....rose like a phoenix from the ashes and now turned into a peacock...
huh? i am going bonkers i guess...too much beach water in my head

IT WAS A DAY WHEN THE LOUNGE WENT BEYOND THE INTERNET
We READ, We WRITE, We definitely LOUNGE

P.S| couldn't get John's and Thoorika's views today....don't mind folks...they would post it in their behalf soon. Moreover Sunday we are going for a movie :P
