I can't plan.
Generally photographers are good planners. But not me. For me, plans are like that right turn you take two seconds after one gives an
indicator for the left!
Saturday morning will be way more hectic than the night. My bike has been threatening a complete shutdown since the past week and it needs a warm hug from Akbar The Great, my mechanic.
Besides sweating in this lovely weather, I have to fetch a print from Mahim and get it framed. It is for a friend who is going to celebrate her birthday in a typical old catholic style house called Greyville, which is green in colour.
I am also trying to squeeze in a date.
Now, I'm terrible at asking women out. My brain froze and I muttered something about a play to a girl I met on Monday.
Thank God for Facebook. Some would say I'm too fast, but a friend suggested that I talk and take the risk or else waiting is just a pointless waste of time.
If she says yes, then Saturday gets very tight, pun intended. Somehow on Saturday, I also have to buy things for my house - handles, knobs and hinges.
Sunday will be spent in recovering from an assumed hangover, reading (and hopefully finishing) Matsuo Basho's The Narrow Road to The Deep North.
I'll follow that with three leisurely long baths, a much needed shave and I need to replenish my wardrobe and shoe rack, which I'm sure will get postponed to a weekday!
A film is a must - any film, maybe with the family or on my laptop basically most of Sunday will be spent avoiding the world!
Oh and this Sunday I have to take photos of my neighbour's one-year old daughter. That is something I can't/won't avoid.
