AC said...

Whoa, that way more responses than I expected!

Nanduji... very sorry :( Short trip, slam bam weekend travel...

@pnoasnidtiinvie: Nothing, really! Just hung out with friends for a night, and then it was back home...

@Ag: Work hasn't allowed me to blog regular... irrespective of what 'star people' has said above!

AC said...

@Srividya: Well, given that they've lasted almost a month (and survived two short falls) without incident, I guess you're right!

@Karma, Soundarya, Meera: Thank you, thank you :)
