On How OG Disappoints his Friends!!!

June 20, 2009

My friends are the best, who really want me to do well in life. I can say this thanks to the countless mails and pings that I have received over the course of last week or so. It was my mistake to tell Mr. KJ that there was a possibility that I could come back to India soon. And as we all know, such news spreads like wild fire.

The first mail was from my friend Mr. AC, who very eloquently explained that he needed a laptop and that he was happy that I would be coming back soon. When I told him that customs only allow a single laptop and that I already had mine, he asked me to risk it.

Then I was “gtalked” by my dear friend Mr. AK who went straight to the point that he had not had any faarinmadhyam (liquor) in a long time and he was expecting atleast a couple of bottles from me.

Mr. KJ was easy on me. He said that he would take liquid cash of 20,000 Rs. Nothing more would be required.

Mr. VR, the eternal optimist made me an offer I could not refuse. In true Mafioso slang, he told me that he wanted a carton of Marlboro lights cigarette and if I refused, only bad things would happen.

The last I had heard of Mr. AM was last year when he had quit his software job to move into photography. He sent me a mail that he needed a camera with a lens that was only manufactured by a single vendor in San Francisco.

Eventually, over the course of the whole week, I totally had orders of:

  • 3 laptops
  • 24 bottles of alcohol
  • 7 cartons of cigarettes
  • 4 cameras
  • 2 video cams
  • 3 Nintendo Vees.
  • A cap (strange request?)
  • An LA Lakers T-shirt
  • 1 Zippo lighter
  • 2 I-pods

And on top of this, I had to promise many people that I would give them a treat!!!

Well, I am going to disappoint all of them as I passed the interview and I would be moving to Sunnyvale pretty soon!!! YAY!!!! (going there next Friday).

And thus, the “akkare” series is going to continue with new improved goof ups of OG….. Don’t know for how long…….but a new adventure in a new place nevertheless………

          OG: OG was was in a lenient mood when he wrote that comment 😛

      • June 21, 2009 11:09 am

        360 degrees? 😛
        it takes a genius to know one 😛
        OG: 😛 hmmmmmm 😛 that is why I cannot find people like me in the world 😉

    • June 21, 2009 7:02 am

      Vimmuuu where is the original Arsenal tee I asked you for ??
      OG: yeah, vimmuuu, that is bad of you 😛
      OG I think you can add another vee in there for me 😉 😀 Ha its been so long since I got a gift..

      Oh ya I wouldn’t mind a laptop as a b’day present either 😉 😛 😛
      OG: okay saar….. one laptop for you 😛
      (am serious 🙂 )
      OG: I am very serious 😛

  7. June 20, 2009 8:25 pm

    LOL!! OG!
    awesome friends!! 😀
    OG: tahnku thanku 😛
    you know who has the best requirement?

    mr KJ 😀
    smart man I say! 😆
    only a teeny weeny sum 😀
    OG: yeah, he is a smart guy 😉
    20K kya hai?
    Peanuts for OG ! 😀
    OG: 500 dollars is a lot of money….
    “OG thinks of all the food he can have with that sun :lol:*

    * 3 laptops (rofl!!) and how will you carry them even if you did get them through customs? 😀
    * 24 bottles of alcohol (whatt???friends are all drunkards? 😆
    * 7 cartons of cigarettes (*sigh*and apparently smokers as well 😀
    * 4 cameras
    * 2 video cams
    * 3 Nintendo Vees.
    * A cap (strange request?)
    * An LA Lakers T-shirt
    * 1 Zippo lighter
    * 2 I-pods

    so OG’s friends are people who drink(and how! 😉 ) chain smokers, budding photographers, maybe videographers too? :D, errr some who URGENTLY need ONE cap for some strange reason, a little childish(all the Nintendo vees 😀 ), LA lakers fan , smokers again*sigh*, and i-pod fans 😀
    OG: in one words, OG’s friends are all “Jangos”……………
    people who love living life 😛 but yes, if you dont know this already, Kerala has the highest alcohol consumption in india…… 😛 so yes, most mallus are expert imbibers 😛
    and BTW, there is nothing childish about video games….. I love playing them… have you tried nintendo Vee… it is awesome……

    Is that about the right description OG? 😀
    OG: about right 😛
    did you say double prayers to god this time round? 😀
    coz unknown to you , he saved you by granting the other YAY! 😀

  8. June 20, 2009 9:21 pm

    Oh my goodness ! That was some list, OG! You do have some very concerned friends 🙂
    OG: 😛 my friends…. what can I say 😛
    You know – I don’t know the fascination with the Zippo lighter – I have heard lots of demands for it too – and I always wonder why??????
    OG: same here…… even I cannot understand how people like zippos and smoking actually…..
    You know OG, here cigarettes are so expensive that people coming from India are requested to bring suitcase loads of them 🙂
    OG: same in america as well…….. even when I came here, I was asked to bring em…..
    One thing is for sure – if you get caught in customs with all this – you will have a fun time explaining it to them 🙂 Maybe – you could take a printout of all this with you – as proof 🙂
    OG: hahahahahahahaha
    So all set to move! Have fun !
    OG: have another week here…. so having fun 😛

  9. June 21, 2009 3:15 am

    Achooo..poor you! Some friends they are. How about relatives? Didn’t they send a list (I don’t mean immediate..ofcourse they have every right to)? I mean the distant ones.
    OG: nope, nothing much from relatives………. 😛 it helps that every tom dick and harry is in faarin 😛
    OG, better you sneak into India. Ha..ha..ha..Cap and T-shirts fine but Cameras, I-pods etc. Hmm….how about they give you some cash for all this or do they think that every morning you get up and shake the Dollar tree in front of your apartment. 😐
    OG: dollar tree… if only I had one….. things would have been so much easier 😛

  10. June 21, 2009 3:20 am

    BTW OG, don’t forget the list of gifts I sent. Don’t have time. I will need those gifts only when we visit SFO. Ha..ha..ha..
