My nonsensical post which you guys like to read :P

My usual weekend routine is something like this-

9 am get up, do all the loo activities
10 am go back to sleep
10.30 am prepare breakfast or eat out
11.30 am sit with a book
Noon fall asleep reading the book
2 pm get up, make some sub-standard lunch
3 pm go to the movies/ play badminton/ go for a swim
6 pm knit or read a book
7 to 7.20 pm study or atleast pretend to study
7.20 pm make dinner or eat out
9 pm sweet dreams

We have a long weekend this time (July 4th US of A's independence day) normally it would be the above routine times 3. But, BUT this time around it's different!!
Why? Because someone is coming home la la la la la la laaaa...
Who? She la la la la la laaa...
FYI, I haven't met her or spoken to her. We have been blog/Gmail/Gtalk friends for maybe 2 months now. I think the reason we clicked was because, both of us lack a few important screws and have husbands who have extra screws!! I usually get close to people who are total nut cases and she is one mega nut...I am SO excited to have her here!! YAAAYYY!!!

Idli, dose, vada batter is ready (she requested idli, dosa)
Small prayer to Ganeshji to make the idli fluffy, dose crispy and vada crunchy done
Vegan cake (her hubby is allergic to eggs) baked
Sheets changed
House vacuumed
1 week old dried sambar globs in the microwave removed
Unsightly stains and hair in the bathrooms removed
Random paper and other rubbish hidden under the bed
Uber colourful bookmark for her, knitted


Control excitement and pin ass to one place can't do!

Have a lovely weekend everyone! I know, for a change, I will!
La la la la la laaaaa.......
