Another One of those days..

Alas it rained on me. Good lord it rained on me and the rain washed away all my former cheer.

I had a beautiful night on Tuesday witnessing McCain being kicked in the balls and Obama becoming the first US black president. This was sweet, sweeter than the lemon crunch cake I've become so fond of. That night was full of crazy happyness and sunshine beamed to the safety of T.V set. Had I been out celebrating with the masses, I might have even lost my virginity just to make a "white-black " baby on this historical moment.

The next day would find me away from home. No, I was not going to join the non-stop parting of the democrats, but rather participate in some user experience survey for an upcoming gift website. For those of you who are tired of sheep being thrown at or receiving a Mojito(it's not a gay drink) without actually feeling it go down your throat on face book, this is exciting news. The site/app actually allows you to buy and send your friends real gifts which they can redeem on their cards(credit/debit) and spend at any bar or restaurant. Cool those who've run away from face book can jump back in to enjoy such services. It's still in it's beta stage but should be rather useful.

As usual, I got lost(someone please donate a GPS navigation system) and was with some incident because out of the blue it started drizzling and I half walked-run in the rain to get the survey place. It was still raining after my session and I had to get back home quickly. After all, what harm can a little rain do to me? Some ka woman I met selling umbrella's wanted me to take one at 10bucks ≈ 20K, I told her off with words that would make my blog censored when she tried to "force" me to buy. By the way It was a normal ordinary umbrella and I was not that desperate.

That "small" rain must have done some kinda damage because I virtually slept the whole night and whole day. I only got out of bed a few hours ago with a slight headache and the muscle "fire" still in my legs. Maybe am just unfit or weak but I've not felt this crappy since I greedily enjoyed direct-from-tank beer smuggled/stolen from the "cold room" at Uganda Breweries in Port Bell, Kampala(another story).

Hopefully this Friday, things can get back to normal. I'll steal an umbrella and get a long rest over the weekend.

What are you cats getting down to over the weekend?

dude i thought its bliss when it rains on you, i actually have beef that am stuck in office while someone out there is getting rained on right now

that upcoming gift site, seems cool, just wondering how it will operate over here in our ugandan bars or shop seeing that credit/debit cards are a rarity here.

oh and there's a circus on here, thats wat am doin this sato, damn i posted in yo comments section

The Emrys said...

oh and i dedicate these boots and socks to you if you are still feeling cold from your drizzle escapades

nevender said...

Dang!! Someone took the socks.

Emi, I am laughing. You would have lost your virginity for Obama? And then she might probably be white and then get a baby who is black and 46 years later, the making of the second African American US president.
Dad? Ugandan!! Haha..jokes

Hope you are warmer by now. It rains every day here.

Lemon crunch cake...Some

Dude, u need to taste coffee chunks...they taste like heaven.

Cheri said...

For real now, this "first black pres" thing is getting to me. No offence to u Emi...the world's media makes it look like he got the ticket solely based upont he colour of his skin. It's beginning to irk me.

And he is bi-racial...I think the whites feel jealous because a huge part of him is white as well.

But all said and done...I have lived to see the day that America elects a minority leader.

Going to New Vision office for the first time this weekend to pick an Obama T-shirt. It's the sort of thing I would never have thought I would do.

apr9 said...

Thou shall not steal....use kavera.

Cheri said...

Ugandan girl said...

UBL well that must have been fun...and funny...lol..as for the umbrella well that happened to me once i just left it and anyway the rain had stopped so there was no point and the ka umbrella didnt look strong enough...
As for the weekend i have spent it in a little town called Melksham and its late now so am off to bed have to head back to the city tomorrow...have a great week xx.

Emry's Circus, wow sounds a blast I've missed. I always wanted to attend one.I wish it was Fat Joe's rain. The gift site should be working for you guys too soon, by the time I left Ug, crane bank plus mob other had debit cards and you could swipe em at certain places. Was shocked to find out you could also swipe yo visa card @ punchline in kabs..

Nev, The Obama win has placed most black men in high esteem. more white women are eager to have their babies -I was caught on this one.

Cheri, I sample yo recommendation, true the media has turned it into a racial issue. but guess it might sell more than the failing economic crisis and cover up that Us can also fall.I'll see about that mojito when site/app goes beyond the beta stage.

eddsla, apr9 thanks!! but kaveera? I might get arrested for polluting

Ntikita, you sd have got it before Obama won to show more solidarity. Hope you got T-shirt because am sure mob pple must have targeted for the same stuff. If I get mob Obama T-shirts, Is there good market in Ug?

Lulu, -Yeah am still unscratched.

Sleek, I still have my contacts @ UBL but going for the whole factory might be disastrous. I'd have liked that rugby...beach plot. never done any of those while i was still there -Mob work

Ug gal, Wht's good in Melksham? It does sound like a small paradise
