shrimp bait and Uma's night out... :D

it’s always a good time when you are with friends and yesterday only proved this statement 100 % authentic. for starters, i know that i still owe you folks the post on the hiking trip. it's been 2 weeks overdue but let us push it back further, shall we?

so Gordon landed his ass on the island this weekend. its nice to have him back. don't want to say it, but i did miss the 'donkey on the rocks' and 'beer chugging' bru of mine. and yes, Degremont needs a plumber to fix the mess that Gordon calls his plant. so they flew him out of deep dark Africa to sunny tropical Africa.

amu (a.k.a. gundi) is flying back tomorrow :( ...guess that she had enough of trying to compete against me for the Mauritian underworld...and so i reclaim my turf. :D
all right, the truth is that she has been sick ever since she got here and by now she's had enough of being dressed up in 3 layers of clothing and a woolen hat while everyone else hung out at the beach. well, so Uma's decided that its time to say "I'm back" to Florida!! gonna miss you amu...

so last night we had the usual let's-all-go-to-Domaine Anna plan. Plan B (i.e. Buddha Beach was scheduled for later). so anyways, this time around it was a curious mix of people. Uma, Gordon and myself (the old timers), Joel (surprise come back), the Germans (Lars, Jorn, Wolfy, Kev & Kestrin) and Jake (the new Fulbrighter in town. he lives in QB - the guava avenue, 'avenue de giuveres'). a great evening with great people and the usual banter. good food. weird conversation. silly games and crazy acts (damn, it makes me nostalgic)...just like the god ol' days.

the evening saw us all witness Gordon's "i am a bisexual" statement. oh yeah, he is gotten a lot weirder since he's been in Tanzania. and of course we all had to play 'spin-the-bottle' or 'truth-or-dare' on the revolving table (lazy-Suzanne) with a half burnt toothpick. that was fun. Lars ended up doing a semi-strip on the bridge over the pond and Kevin asked the waiter out on a date (only to be turned down) while Lars tried to woo him at the same time (try 'give it to me baby' for a pickup the next time you want to ask your waiter out like Lars did. sure to fail). i had to bark and howl at the moon out on the bridge again while Jorn did a sexy look-I’m-rubbing ice cubes all over my body dance. poor Kevin had a rough night with his dares and he had to go back out in public and do a pole dance on the lamp that lit the garden & also ask Kestrin to marry him, only to be turned down a second time around. Joel narrated the 'harigen arsh' story and man it was disgusting. oh yeah, Gordon did a sega dance and chicken hop around the table and Jake asked me to marry him (wonder why i said no to the "the last four months were great & i want to spend the next few months with you. so will you marry me" proposal??)
i tell ya, these guys have no idea of how to ask THE QUESTION!!
well finally we decided that it was time to head out (actually they shut down the place and almost everyone including the waiters had left). so on the way out, on the bridge, Kev and Kestrin both asked me to marry them. well, poor Kev had to face rejection for the third time in the evening. after all who would say no to a hot German chick...definitely not me (is it just me, or did 3 different people ask to marry me in 3 hours...2 of them guys and one hot lady??) :D

so after the eventful evening of trying to figure out why Smurfet is the only female Smurf we all were set to hit Buddha (by the way, the conclusion that we all came to is that Smurfet is a slut and that explains Gordon's title for last evenings post). well WE DON'T KNOW WHY but Buddha was closed for the night. so we all headed back to the German's place. Uma went back to grab her precious sleep and Wolf got upset over the fact that MBC was not showing the Man Utd v/s Chelsea game and he sulked off to bed as well. the rest of us just hung around and talked with beer and rum to keep us company. my new fiancée, Kestrin, finally decided that she was also tired and needed to sleep. so that left us 7 guys out of the porch. don't know how but the conversation soon turned to globalization, racism, cultural segmentation, capitalism, communism, democracy, apartheid, national interests, population, money, free trade and all that is wrong with the world today. we had our very own UN debate on everything. kindda turned heated at times but it was fun. just a 7 guys, from 4 different countries and 4 different fields that included history, philosophy, economics, banking & engineering, discussing on their perspective of the world today over a few drinks at like 4 am, Monday morning. it really makes one appreciate a lot of things once you see things from other's perspective. we all had our differences and our own ideas on what is the best way to deal with them. but the bottom line that i see is that there were 7 guys that night that fought over the same thing. we each wanted the world to be a better place, but we each had our own idea of how to make it so. if only we could all think alike, maybe we would have come to an answer to all the problems. but that's the irony of life. no two people think alike and everyone thinks that his/her belief is the correct one. so as long as human beings continue to think differently the world shall have all these problems, and the day we stop thinking different progress will come to a halt. ironic? i say life...

so we all finally realized that we had been up all night and that we were tired like hell at like 5:30 am. Joel and Jake crashed in the German's spare bedroom, while Gordon, Kev, Jorn and myself we stayed up and watched the Bourne Supremacy cause Gordon had to go to work at 7:00 and i had to get my butt to the Uni to work on my assignment. well, after last night there was no way that i was gonna make it to the Uni and get any work done. so i took the bus home instead. there's nothing like your bed after a long night and 2 hours on the Mauritian buses. i turned off my cell phone and crashed. the next thing i remember it was 4:00 pm.

well guys, i gotta get working on my assignment now. since i didn't make it to the group work, i will have to make up for it by finishing the entire presentation tonight. have a test on Wednesday and then the Presentation is on Friday. have to work on the written part of the assignment as well, but that is in league with the other guys in my group...so that shall be tackled later.

have a great time folks. being able to spend some good times with Gordon, Joel, Uma & the others just reminds me of all the great times we had. wish that you all were here. but thinking of it, i figure out that thanks to globalization and all its discontents the one good thing that has happened is that the world is a much smaller place. so i'll definitely see you all sooner or later.

;D

nachiketa gunda das!!! first of all, you will never rule the underworld, mauritian or otherwise. even in my absence, my underlings (you all know who you are) will continue to dominate "the market". second, i have NEVER heard such terrible marriage proposals in all my life. you guys definitely need some practice ("i want to spend the next few months with you??" what IS that??), so please rent "Mother-in-Law" and other quality Hollywood fare for tips before you pop the question, to Nachi, or anyone else for that matter (and for help on choosing The Perfect Ring, please see anne scharlow for more details). And thirdly.. gunda i am going to miss you!! so now who is going to swat at my head with sugar cane, bhangra during a tsunami warning, make that RIDICULOUS face for the camera, fail to set up my DVD player after hours of trying, and dance with me in KFC?? gone are those days, and that is sad. keep it real, NGD. and always remember-its only ok to smoke weed if you eat your dinner first.
