They never had a special meaning to me - I have worked before but friday night was no different than any weekday night. In iitk, Friday night monday night sunday night - wat's the difference - we were in lab all the time.
It's only in seattle that friday night has started having a very special meaning to me. Some thumb rules of friday night:
- At 8 pm we have no idea what we are gonna do that night
- We eventually eat out (people count not less than 8)
- We watch a movie that more than half of us (to be conservative) have seen and are highly recommending (people count no less than 10) (unless of course on very rare occasions we goto theatre too).
- We never start the movie before 12 am.
I had lunch outside with few office folks (a full-blown buffet) but decided to succumb to have dinner at Indo-chinese place here and well I don't regret it at all inspite of the long wait and noisy surrounding.
And today we watched "Andaaz apna apna" something which we all had seen - some of us has seen it 10 days ago. I remember watching this movie few months ago in downtown at A's place and today A himself insisted that we watch that movie again.
And though during the movie I, G3, Skyler had our share of naps (skyler even snored) we all woke up for the climax. And well eventually I realize that it is not the food, nor the movie that defines the friday night entertainment. The fact that we all are together and having fun in company of people where we can be whomever we are, say things before thinking, command our whims, laugh at our own silly jokes, just lie on the couch with the legs on the table, be part of the conversation without saying any word, or sabotage the conversation with just our point of view, poke fun at a person without any guilt nor fear, or have their attention and concern when we have a scratch in our car - defines our friday night entertainment ...
