How a flu took away my weekend.

Wednesday - On my way back from uni, I sat next to a girl who was sneezing like crazy. Oh that was a hell of a sneeze! I think that was what infected me.

Friday - I was happy that I did not fall sick and told my sister how I've survived this winter without catching a single flu and she was totally certain that I'll have it now that I've bragged about not having caught the flu.
Friday night, guess what? I had sore throat.

Saturday - The sore throat was still here and the nose was running like a damned open tap.

Sunday - The sore throat was gone, running nose remained plus I had a bad cough and fever.

Monday - The fever was still here and the bad cough remained.

Tuesday - I only had the cough.

Wednesday, today - I almost went to uni with a 5-day greasy hair. But I couldn't do this to myself, so I washed the damned hair.

On the overall I hated being sick, all I did during those days were playing poker and watching dumb Disney channel ado TV shows and I missed so much classes...

Anyway, I guess I'm recovering great. Take care dudettes and dudes and don't catch the flu! It's awful.

Tribute - Tenacious D

My crush of this month is here dudettes and dudes and the song is Tribute by Tenacious D, the awesome (to say the least) band with Jack Black and Kyle Gass as lead vocalist and lead guitarist.

Tribute is totally fun to listen to and the little story behind "the best song in the world" is awesome.  It's about Jack and Kyle encountering a demon who asks them to sing "the best song in the world" or he'll eat their souls. It's the kind of story you'll usually get from drunk or stoned (or both) dudes but then it's so well narrated (with the demon's voice imitation) that it actually makes this song epic!

Here goes the lyrics taken from

This is the greatest and best song in the world... Tribute.

Long time ago me and my brother Kyle here,
we was hitchhikin' down a long and lonesome road.
All of a sudden, there shined a shiny demon... in the middle... of the road.
And he said:
"Play the best song in the world, or I'll eat your soul." (soul)
Well me and Kyle, we looked at each other,
and we each said... "Okay."
And we played the first thing that came to our heads,
Just so happened to be,
The Best Song in the World, it was The Best Song in the World.

Look into my eyes and it's easy to see
One and one make two, two and one make three,
It was destiny.
Once every hundred-thousand years or so,
When the sun doth shine and the moon doth glow
And the grass doth grow...

Needless to say, the beast was stunned.
Whip-crack went his Whoopy tail,
And the beast was done.
He asked us: "(snort) Be you angels?"
And we said, "Nay. We are but men."
Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh-ah-ah,
Ohhh, whoah, ah-whoah-oh!

This is not The Greatest Song in the World, no.
This is just a tribute.
Couldn't remember The Greatest Song in the World, no, no.
This is a tribute, oh, to The Greatest Song in the World,
All right! It was The Greatest Song in the World,
All right! It was the best muthafuckin' song the greatest song in the world.
[2-part skat]
And the peculiar thing is this my friends:
the song we sang on that fateful night it didn't actually sound
anything like this song.
This is just a tribute! You gotta believe it!
And I wish you were there! Just a matter of opinion.
Ah, fuck! Good God, God lovin',
So surprised to find you can't stop it.
All right! All right!

Do listen to this song, dudettes and dudes, if you haven't! Even if you don't like it, at least it'll cheer you up!

Road Trip

Yesterday Jev and I along with my sister toured the island with Jev's colleagues and friends. We had a great moment visiting several places, namely Grand Bassin, a "chalet" near Chamarel, Le Morne plage, Alexandra Falls and several viewpoints. I'll leave you dudettes and dudes with pictures of the trip. Cheers!

Smelly people

Yesterday, in the bus, I came across not 1, not 2, but 3 stinky persons. I know it's horrible of me to be writing about it, but I gotta let it out. The smell is still stuck in my head. Yeah, it was that horrible. You see, I know we're almost in summer and people tend to sweat and all. But I swear the smell was not that of sweat. It was the sort of smell my elder cousin emanates when he has not bathed for a week. And so I had to open all possible windows and hold my breath for a long long time. It was even worst when the person sitting next to me had to raise her arm to ring the bell. I would have totally preferred it if she had asked me to ring it for her...

Argh dudettes and dudes, I don't think a small bath is too much to ask for.

Brand new week

Been procrastinating, to update this blog and not "in real life". Things have been hectic around uni lately. The kind of hectic that I love. There's nothing more blissful than some good old positive stress. We've got 2 assignments to submit on week 11 and we will be interviewing HR managers and employees next week. This is exciting! You know, I'll get the opportunity to pretend that I'm a serious and totally sense-of-humour-less person, which I'm obviously not. Ha! You guys know me, I can never keep a straight face long enough.

Ah well, dudettes and dudes, I'll leave you guys with a couple of pictures, taken on Saturday at Plaza, Rose Hill where Jev and I played an awesome match of... wait for it... scrabble! And yeah I lost! 
Have a great week ahead dudettes and dudes. Don't we have a public holiday anytime soon? Argh!

Loving Friday

There's a reason why most people love Friday; it's all about the few hours of freedom that it promises to us. Friday announces the weekend, Saturday is the weekend and a day off from anything that has been keeping you busy during the week and Sunday is well, the time to rest and get ready to face Monday. So that must be why my favourite day remains Friday, even though I've got classes tomorrow.

Anyway, today, Friday, I got a few gifts that cheered me up. First it's Avon's glimmerstick eye liner. The colour is "majestic plum", that is dark purple and I love it. Next is Maybelline's black nail varnish and I totally love it!
On another note, yesterday evening, I spent some quality moment with my pets. The cat stayed perched on a coconut tree and the dogs were super excited by I don't know what. 
On the whole we all had fun, for the dogs I could tell by all the playful bites that they gave me. Ah dogs! Can't live without them!

So long dudettes and dudes! Have a wonderful Friday night.

And the week has just started...

I'm in my PMS week, so things are looking pretty tough lately. But hell I'm keeping the spirit and cheering myself up as much as I can and this usually works. The weather is kind of gloomy today and I'm glad I've got no classes. 

On Saturday Jev and I dined at Chez Manuel along with Kevina, Leenakshi, Kervin and Yash. We had an awesome time and the food was great. You know, the kind of taste that stays on your mind even days later. I can't wait to dine or lunch Chez Manuel yet another time. 

On another note, this week will be quite a hectic one with some assignments to submit and some companies to visit but I kind of like it. :)

I'm off to clean my desk dudettes and dudes. Have an excellent week and be awesome!

Thank you universe

Thank you universe for making my 8 a.m class become a 9 a.m one today. That was sheer luck! I however had to undergo a terrible moment of panic in the traffic jams while riding with Jev as the clock ticked 8 and we were still stuck in Port Louis. Lucky that Jev had to attend Gmauritius today, so I did not have to take the bus. Too bad that the lecturer did not inform us of the change in time beforehand though. This could have helped avoid some stress.

Ah anyway! I'm happy that everything went quite well. I'm back home and relaxing with a cup of green tea. Gonna watch some culinary reality show in a few. Take care dudettes and dudes! Be awesome.
