Delhi-Agra Trip. Day 4: Sunday

Yippee, it's back to Calcutta today! Much as Delhi-Agra has been enjoyable, I'm missing my place, the cats, home cooked food, and everything in general.
Day is pretty uneventful. We drive to Gurgaon, where Guppy loses the bet that we spot any public transport vehicle. Now he owes us 1 grand. Methinks we won't get it anytime soon.
We drop by Gora's place. He's wearing a T-shirt that says 'Buffon!' I shall refrain from saying anything further. He explains that it's not Buffoon, as many people think, but Buffon is a football team.
Then it's to City Centre, a huge mall in Gurgaon. Ma drives everyone crazy with her window shopping. My shoulders are aching from carrying my bag around. I help Ma pick out a pair of shoes, and then it's time to drive to the airport.
The usual hugs and goodbye kisses. It's been fun. I'll miss Guppy. But it's going to be nice getting back to Calcutta.
Delhi Airport is horrible. Our own airport is so much better organised. They need to take a leaf out of our book.
I make friends with a girl from SXC 3rd year Mathematics on the plane. Turns out we know loads of common people The time goes by- chatting with her. There's a most uncouth man snoring at the back. All the passengers on the plane are miffed. Irritating.
And now the plane's landing.
I'm back home! :)

Dud!!
Buffon is indeed not buffoon.
It's the Italian and Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.
UFF!!!
you football ignorant girls!!
dont know anything!!!!

Joe B R said...

Who said Buffon is a football team????
Which idiosyncratic lunatic could have possibly said that???????????
How on earth will football flourish in this godforsaken country if people start naming a goalkeeper as a goddamn TEAM!!!!
There is a HUGE HUGE difference.
Oh MY GOD, I cannot believe what ive just read today, cannot believe it.

^*^Clouds^*^ said...

Welcome back.

*hugs*

Doubletake, Doublethink. said...

hey, buffon is actually ONE person, not an entire team. but it sounds like a nice trip, what with the amount of pictures you unleashed on facebook. and you actually got un-lost after getting lost. i'm proud of you. :)

oh. turns out someone already pointed out the buffon thing. everyone, in fact.

Astraeus said...

Elendil said...

Gaaaaaah! GIRLS!! BUFFON is probably the GREATEST GOALKEEPER IN THE WORLD! Gaaaah! *joins with Abhijan in rightous anger* :P

WHO said Buffon is a football team indeed! Whoever said it is a buFFOON. Gaaah!

My god. The thing one hears!

*shocked* *appalled*

Ps: I've linked you to my blog :P

Joe B R said...

ha ha ha ha hah!!!!
I thought i was the only one mad about it, now pragsi appears to have taken over from where i left. BUFFON in indeed is the best in the word atleast now.

but the previous post calls for protocal :)
Gaaaah!!

Neelakantan said...

Let me add my Gahs also.

Buffon is Not repeat NOT a footbal TEAM.

He is one of the greatest goalkeepers ever.

(sorry Not THE best in my list)

Fishy! said...

@ Joe BR: Uff. Stop it already. I never said I was a whiz at football. And maybe Gora didn't say Buffon was a football team, he might have said it was the goalkeeper's name- I'm not sure. I tend to tune out when people start talking about football.

@ little boxes: Yeah, well, somehow I thought I wouldn't look good in harem pants. :)

@ Shreya: Yes, I so did!

@ Astraeus: Thank you!

@ Elendil: Goody. I linked you to mine ages ago.

Fishy! said...

@ Neelakantan: Uff. This comment thingy is turning into an epic!

Neelakantan said...

That is what happens when people mess with football.

BTW, Surprised to see someone using my full name :P

Joe B R said...

Neelakantan said...

Hey, She'll have a post with a hundred comments. It'll be something very few bloggers achieve. :P

Joe B R said...

so we're basically doing tuna a favour.
the moment ppl check her blog and see 100 comments, imagine the rishpect they have for the author!!
off course i hope they dont read the comments then

there tuna, cheer up!!:)

Neelakantan said...

Well, We'll just have to hope that they don't read the comments. That will depend on the person who's reading the blog.

Joe B R said...

then sorry tuna, we can only offer you a tuna sandwhich as consolation.
:)

Neelakantan said...

We'll take you to Subway and stuff you. :)

Joe B R said...

yeah no problem, she seems to love the chicken teriyaki sub. so she can have that and a bonus tuna sub.
but first things first-
to the 100 mark!!

i love it when we are evil, absolutely adore it.

P:S be careful if she tries to take it out on you once you guys get back to uni. im off course well protected from that danger.
:)

Neelakantan said...

I'll just have to trust in her innate goodness(?)

But yes to the 100

Joe B R said...

Sends shivers down my spine, body's aching all the time.
Goodbye, ev'rybody, I've got to go,

Joe B R said...

MAMA! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Oooh!
I dont wanna die, sometimes i wish id never been born at all...

thunderbolt and lightning, very very frightening me.
galileo! GALILEO!
galileo! GALILEO Figaro.....

Neelakantan said...

Magnifico-o-o-o.
I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me.
He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go.

Joe B R said...

Bismillah, no we will not let you go-Let Me Go!!
Bismillah, no we will not let you go-Let Me Go!!
no, we will not let you go, let him go!
we will not let you go-let him go!
will not let you go-let him go
Oh mammamia, mammamia, mammamia let me go.

Neelakantan said...

Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye.
So you think you can love me and leave me to die.
Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

Joe B R said...

Ooh yeah! Oooh Yeah!

Nothing really matters, anyone can see,
nothing really matters, nothing really matters-to me.....

Neelakantan said...

Into this house we're born
Into this world we're thrown

An actor out alone

Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire

neelu, back to work then mate, exams and everything done so back to real work now.

moonlight drive

Lets swim to the moon uh huh
lets ride through the tide.
penetrate the evening that the
city sleeps to hide

lets swim out tonight love,
it's our turn to try
parked beside the ocean on our moonlight drive.

Neelakantan said...

We're back in business.

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Surrender to the waiting worlds
That lap against our side

Nothin' left open
And no time to decide
We've stepped into a river
On our moonlight drive

JoƩ B R said...

been a-fuckin-ges man! back to business then matey? hell had i not had nothing better to do than browse so far back into the blog i wouldnt have remembered.

anyway, here goes--

Let's swim to the moon
Let's climb through the tide
You reach your hand to hold me
But i can't be your guide

Easy, i to love you
As i watch you glide
Falling through wet forests
On our moonlight drive
Moonlight drive
Moonlight drive
