Beers, Laughs and WordPress Themes!

Thursday night was a blur – it was May 1st, Labor Day, and I was working hard in office till almost 8 pm. If that wasn’t ironic enough, then try this: I had to attend a press conference the next day and I was supposed to go in complete formal wear and be on my best behavior – so, I got drunk that night, celebrating Labor Day and went to the press conference in an unpressed shirt and carrying a mega-hangover! I know a lot of people will read this and judge me and call me an irresponsible jerk who doesn’t deserve to be employed, but in my defense, I didn’t plan on getting drunk and I don’t have formal wear! I wonder if this argument will hold up in court or if I’ll be thrown in a mental asylum to be evaluated. Hmm… πŸ˜€

Anyway, that night, I met Rags and Panday – two of my closest friends – and we went to this place called Tavern. The place was quite empty when we reached at 8.30 pm and by the time we ordered the second pitcher of cold draught, the place was overflowing and the music drowned our voices. We laughed and laughed and remembered all the strange things that have happened to each one of us, and wished time could stand still…

By the end of the night, this is how we looked:

Rags looked quite sane because all she drank was two mugs, constantly being paranoid about her health cehck-up as part of the Australian Visa thingy! And Panday is a regular fish-tank when it comes to booze, and we both gulped down most of it. I felt so buzzed that I decided to change my wordpress theme!!!

Ok, here’s where logic is thrown out of the window. I was high on alcohol and in that dazed state of mind, I realized that my wordpress theme looked gay-ish. πŸ˜€

I’d better change it!! So, here’s the effect! A new theme that’s here to stay, hopefully as long as my old, faithful Light did.

Akhil and Chucks, if you both are reading this, then we missed you both big time!

Cheers!!! πŸ˜€

  4. Hmmmm so you had your share of weekend fun on Thursday night itself??? The theme is good but the font size if too small. Ahhhh lemme grab my microscope!! πŸ˜€
    And your previous theme wasn’t gayish. but if you consider easy to eyes themes as gayish-then so be it….
    fruity πŸ™‚

  5. This is funny! I mean, no, it’s not funny to be hung over, wearing a rumpled shirt to an important event, but to change your template when you are woozey drunk, and to think your template looked gayish! Well, it’s as good an excuse to change a template, in my book. I wish I had an excuse for why i change mine.

    I like the new theme. It shows off your photos. I really like the pics of you and your friends in the pub. THey remind me of still shots at the beginning of a sit-com about young professionals.

    You’re such an honest writer!

  6. You changed the theme coz you got drunk ? :-O
    ROFL !!
    Yeah, the font size is too small ‘n its too dull.
    I so dont like this theme. Its too “bleh”. 😐
    Your posts are lively and humorous ! So be the theme !

    My previous theme was one falled Fleur de Lys, which was really kinda gay.. and Yeah, u really need a microscope to view the font here, but i like the theme as a whole, its quite modular and suits my purpose… πŸ™‚

    Thanks a lot… I know, it sounds very weird, but it actually happened that way… I broke out of my woozy-ness and said, “I have to change my theme!” Those two looked at me as though I was high on dope…!! πŸ˜€
    I’m glad you like the pics… I generally prefer being behind the lens, but as u could make out, i was too far gone to argue! πŸ˜€

    Maybe… Maybe not.. What do u think? πŸ˜‰

    “Too Bleh”..?? πŸ˜€
    Well, yeah… it’s kinda dracula-ish in a dark way… lets see, maybe i’ll get drunk again and change the theme again!! πŸ˜€

  8. hey pokie. change the theme. this theme doesnt suit u. it suits me. not u at all. tell rags, australian visa health check up is a damn fucking joke. its just a stupid formality. and nothing else. been there, done that. trust the the words of the wise!!! lol.
    and who the hell in sane mind, goes to a press conference in a crumpled shirt? are u mad?

  9. @Vishesh
    confusion is the art of convincing someone half way! πŸ™‚

    i’ll tell her… and yeah, i’m facing a lot of pressure to change the theme! πŸ˜€ lemme see…

  10. You look completely drunk. πŸ˜† Smiling like a madman. Your new theme is good. Who says alcohol ruins things?? πŸ˜‰

  11. @Amit
    Amen, brother! How does that anthem go –
    Booze, dope, rock and roll… blah blah blah… πŸ˜€

  12. your theme is good. coz I am using the same theme for some time now πŸ™‚ lol. and I was not drunk either when I switched it. πŸ™‚

  13. @Xylene
