Ola people! (Yeah, I say ola now! :) )
Sorry for the long delay in the LA-is-awesome post. (LA is awesome but I still miss home and can't wait to see everyone at Christmas!)
I'm doing good, thanks for asking. I moved into my apartment 3 days back and have been home alone. And will be home alone till tomorrow! I haven't got internet running but like always I've found a stray unsecured wireless connection! And.... I finally made friends!! ( Basically, I'm HORRIBLE at socializing and initiating conversation, but once someone starts talking to me, I can't shut up!) For 2 days, I was friendless and alone. Then I found a long-lost (second) cousin. And now, finally, I have friends! (Rammy, I fail you yet again, but I will get better!)
I've always had horrible luck when ordering drinks, now I've realized that goes double when I order food! So the last three lunches I've had have each cost 7$ (yes, LA is super expensive) and have ALL been wasted because they're inedible. No, seriously! (What can I say, I'm Indian and not too good at adapting to bland, tasteless food!)
Speaking of Indians, I came across the most annoying and painful one the other day. She was supposed to move in with us and then backed out because I told her I cooked egg at home that day. (I'd just had a beer and felt like sharing!) And she bailed!! Said she was shudh Marwadi and shudh Jain or whatever. OK fine, I told her, I wont make eggs again. (See, I adjusted, I CAN compromise), but she said she'll have to talk to her parents (who live in India btw!) and see what they have to say. And this is after I tell her I wont cook eggs in the house again. And the stupid bitch doesnt even call to get back to us. After hours and hours of trying her number, she finally picks our call and tells us her parents didn't want her to move in with us. SO the bitch finds another place WHICH IS JUST BELOW OUR PLACE! Now I have nothing against any religion but one of my really really good friends was the same caste she is and she was OK with us eatingnon vegetarian food and egg everytime she went out with us. I honestly don't get why the hell she's in the US if she's going to have a problem with non vegetarian food being eaten/cooked around her! How that bitch manages, I'd like to see! I can't wait to tilet paper her house!! (Ah, it feels so nice to vent! Damn bitch-in-crime, I miss calling you and bitching!)
On the other hand, we found another girl and hopefully, she'll be moving in tomorrow!!
So... How're you?
