India Jack

My friend Jack and his GF Jo are on a 6month trip to India and has been writing me emails that I find downright funny, sad, and at time enlightening. But mostly funny.

Installment one:

------------------------------------

Dude!

I'm in, like, India and shit.

If New York is 'The City that never Sleeps', then New Delhi is 'The City that never Shuts The Hell Up'.

Been here a while, all is well. No vomitting or anal squirting at all, though some brat on our bus to Udaipur did both in the aisle. Jo had a bout of Not Feel Well, but it passed.

Internet is hard to find and shitty when you do.

Finished our tour of Rajasthan. Rode a camel for 3 days. Yikes. Slept in the desert. Sweet. 4 days in Jodhpur, yes that's where the pants come from.

In Bombay now. Just had a cup of Monsoon Malabar coffee. They make it just down the coast. It was a swanky coffee shop, so a fatty cup cost rupees35 (about 80 cents!). Down in Kerala it'll be more like rupees 10 or 12. It's only about 85 degrees here, so everyone is wearing sweaters. Our cab driver said it was cold and so I told him that where I live it is now about -5 C. and there's 40 inches of snow so far this year. He looked at me like I might bury an axe in his head and then take his daughters.

Heading to Gokarn tonight. Christmas on the beach. We may even get a hotel room


Cheers,

Jack

Whoever....

Whoever came up with the name "Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder" was just downright mean. That'd be like if there was a disease for people that mumbled and they named it "Moomummenners disease".

Bah.




This always happens - I get something cool and people start copying me. Especially Brad Pitt - he pisses me off. (First that whole "dating Angelina Jolie" thing - now this).

Brad, I see you got a black one .. um.. yeah, don't worry thats pretty cool too (sorta).

Introducing .... Yapdog

Well.. not having a car has started to be a minor annoyance. I toyed with idea of getting a junker - but I'm sort of done with junkers. So then I decided to look at cars I like (i.e. M3, etc) but honestly it would be a complete waste. I need a car at most once or twice a week, it'd be a shame to let a nice car rot in the garage most of the time.




Thus - I decided to get a bike. Chances are you've never heard of the brand - it's a MV Agusta Brutale 750. Simply put - very italian and rather ornary.

I've been riding since I was 8 and this will be my 4th street bike, although its my first non-enduro. Nicci and I were heavily in the habit of naming our vehicles (VW = spike, last bike = skiddy, SLK = slik/silky, saab = zap, mini we never got = dink).



With that in mind, hence I christen "Yapdog". Its been pointed out to me that this is a wimpy name for a mean looking bike. Actually, that's the point. Simply put, tough guys can wear pink because after all, they're tough guys.

New Blog Format

Hail Loyal Readers !!! (both of you!)

I've decided to turn this into more of a "regular blog" - as in tell you what I had for breakfast, what I named my goldfish, and other innane boring type things.

What of these lengthy, ranty and sometimes irreverant articles? I'm moving them to my alter ego's blog at iggychaos.blogspot.com.

So - check here if you want to read about the new socks I bought - but check the iggychaos for the articles you've come to know.
