Blog India: The Update Edition

Current Number of Mosquito Bites: Let’s see, we have a grouping of 3 or 4 on my left foot and one each on the ankle and 2nd toe of the same. On my right foot there is a tiny one right next to the cuticle of my big toe that is incredibly itchy. The sad thing is that y’all thing I’m exaggerating and I haven’t even started in the ones on my hands or arms.

Job to Stop Procrastinating: Putting mosquito repellent in my purse.

Moral of the Mosquito Story: When you’re out with friends, drinking beer next to a group of bushes and trees, and one of them offers you their mosquito repellent, don’t be polite and refuse. Take the darn stuff, spray it everywhere (don’t forget your feet!) and thank her. Itching all night is not fun, especially when the cortisone crème is downstairs.

Random Masters of the Universe Sighting of the Day: I happen to think its cool that Bush knows Skeletor personally.

Status of Unpacking: Why the freak did we bring so much stuff?!

Number of Times We’ve Cooked at Home: Does microwave popcorn count?

Number of Take-Out Menus Gathered and Used: Let’s just say that several of the delivery guys know us by sight on the street.

Weight Loss: Typ0 has lost between 10 and 15 pounds during the last month. Sadly, the only way to tell this was to find a battery for the scale. Long live the India diet!

Weight Gain: Buddha Belly Hubby has gained between 5-10 pounds during the last month. Because life is unfair, this too is completely unnoticeable to anybody except Hubby who has weighed himself about a dozen times in the last 24 hours to see if he has lost any weight.

Attrition Rate: Maid number two was asked not to return after yesterday. (She smelled. Ewww!) Maid number three starts today! We are still on driver number two and he seems to be working out very nicely.

Bad News: Our cable went out for about 30 minutes or so last night.

Good News: “Becker” was on at the time.
