Another please

Last night was ugly.

Went to dinner at a place called 'Little Italy'. The food there is pretty awesome, and your meal plus drinks costs about $15. Italian food. Sun dried tomatoes. Love them.

On the way back to the hotel, after eating, someone got the crazy idea to go to the wine shop. Keep in mind, that the wine shop here is equal to a liquor store. They are on the street, and its basically a storefront where you walk up and everything is sorta displayed there. I need to take a pic of one.

Anyways. We go to the wine shop, someone decided vodka was the choice. I thought we would get a bottle. Instead two people got a bottle each. No bueno.

We went back to the hotel, and sat outside the bar in the lobby. With out fifths of vodka. We went to the bar, and got orange juice, and mixed our own drinks.

Mine was horrible.

Horrible, in that it was really strong. I could barely smell it. Bad.

Between 5 of us, we finished the bottle in about 30 minutes. I don't know why. We weren't in a hurry to get anywhere.

After that, to the club. There is one attached to the hotel, and its VERY westernized. It actually just opened a couple of weeks ago, but I don't really like the club aspect of it, but they have a cool outside balcony thats nice.

I think I like it because it reminds me of Sandy Eggo. Rooftop bar, of sorts.

I was persuaded to dance. Even though I didn't feel like it.

When I got back to the room, I called The Girl. I think she was surprised to hear from me. Maybe because it was inthe wee hours in the morning. Probably. She's in Sandy Eggo right now, I'm kinda jealous she's there and I am not.

She could tell I was a couple of sheets into the wind. It was ok.

This morning, when everyone saw me, they said something that is a common thing I hear. I don't know why. But, they said that they couldn't tell that I had drank a lot. I guess that's kind of unusual? Maybe. But in any case, if we ever hang out you probably won't know the difference between me sober and me a couple of sheets into the wind.


Today, spent most of the day at the pool. Every Sunday, BBQ, free drinks. Big party basically. Relaxing. I love the water.

I have been here for 5 weeks now.

At the end of 8 weeks, vacation with the Girl.

I was going to go back home after that. Instead, I asked to come back here, to India.

Once I am back home, I will have lived in India for 3 months. Kinda crazy to think about.

You probably just slur a little when you drink. I know other people who have the same curse. The best part about running to excess is acting like you have. Maybe it's time for you to try alternate substances- see if you act ridiculous on them.

Dude. "Running" was supposed to be "drinking". Duh, iPhone auto-speller!

No bueno


What made you want to stay for a full three months?

Tabbie - Sometimes I do think its a curse! I am guessing I wouldn't be too ridiculous, just a guess.

TC - I'll still have my little vacay in the middle, save some dinero, good for the resume, doing good things here. To sum it up :)
