At laast, (reminds me of the first slow song on jan the 20th., danced by the first couple, and at last, our President got to meet with the first african american president of the United States. A lot of expectations already? of course, but we need to quit that behaviour and learn to be dependent. It was an amusing week for a lot of people out here but for Mr cool himself, (prez kikwete) he was as calm as always and just retained a sense of equanimity. Am guessing he got exhausted just by people talking about that week. Not the first time but once again Prez Kikwete was in the heezy!
So, after that loong week and after six months of the year, I wont mind reminiscing, anecdoting and badinaging over a bottle of vintage bubbly. Thank God it's friday. I found this okay place to go for a drink, relax once in a while and some weekends, It's called, 'Recession special'. Their food is amazing, too greasy though and that's why it's amazing!, ah! bwana, who cares if add that avoirdupois, I'll blame on 'Recession' special and not my own laziness and cheapness. Talking cheap, save and all those valuable words especially now, I've been pretty creative during this Recession time. I've been able to slow down on my spending, Yea!, microwave a lot, saves time too, watch TV free online and most important choose Obama stocks. Anything to do with his name, is a good investiment. (don't ask me how this works in Tanzania) share your thoughts.
Also, I realized that learning a foreign language saves more than movies. (Am serious people, the vintage isn't in my head yet) why not get ahead of the Geopolitical curve and study Korean? north korean to be exact, if they have two different languages. North Korea is again doing some muscle flexing, albeit much more modest than in the past. What's up with that Kim dude with his pantsuits? and he looks like he's in the grave already. But, mastering the tongue of Mr Kim could well come to regain some cachet. And if not, you still can order some vintage in Pyongyang.....if you can make it there.
