Of whiskys and dosas

Decided to have a laaazy lunch at a friend's place yesterday. "Laaazy"....the jury is still out on that one.

Objective:
To spend a lazy Sunday afternoon

Time line:
2pm to 10.30 pm

Team:
R: the host, a.k.a "chic londa" with a loved up bachelor pad and as calm as a dead fish. Suffers from a mild form of OCD

M: Unassuming, patient, sleepy guest. Loves Silk Smitha. Sings like a canary be it Altaf Raja or Kumar Shanu songs

L: M's better half. Hyper, wannabe chef, sucker for etiquette & palm reader. Suffers from OCD

S: my (much)better half. The only non drinker in the group. Cleanliness freak

Me: I do justice to the food. Stupid when normal. Ludicrous when drunk

Methodology:
1 kg mutton keema, 1 kg chicken rassa, 1 kg mutton biriyani, 1 lt dosa batter, 10-15 lts of beer, gin, whiskey and a 32' LCD.
Discussions ranged from Hindu mythology, palmistry, real estate/hospitality sector, to how would we would like to "do" Silk Smitha.

Conclusion:
1) I get real pissed when am woken up by sprinkling water on my face
2) M can sleep peacefully with a plate in one hand and the TV remote in the other
3) Beer does not leave stains on the tablecloth
4) I am not the "only" idiot in the room
5) R will never again invite us over. EVER

MTV had a campaign " oru whisky oru masal dosa , mind it"
sunday afternoons are designed for a good sleep ..
just imagine that little bit sun rays coming through the curtain , falling on your face and a boring black and white movie playing .. who wouldnt sleep with a remote in one hand and a plate in the other ..

ha ha. sounds like a load of fun. of course since i have an OCD about cleanliness, not sure if I could be as gracious as your host R was!!

Seems like a funday! But didn't your wife kill you for wasting a weekend sitting at home? Mine definitely would :P

My brother used to tell me, the non-drinker has the most fun watching others in booze nights. (I guess that was to keep me away)

Now, I know better :)

Yea, R was an awesome host. I may have pushed a few out of the balcony if they behaved the same at my place.

Rakesh:
Wasting? How did you come to that? We went over to R's house so technically we went out...he he. Yea, non-drinkers have all the fun.
