Ravi Kapoor; "So you've met Jordan."

As you can probably see from the other night's post, Jordan and I didn't exactly have the smoothest trip up here, and he didn't think the one bed in our room was terribly amusing.  I sort of get where he's coming from; he's probably doing the work of two as a contractor for his old employer and hasn't taken a vacation since that transition.

We got stuff worked out with the folks at the other inn, though, and while the place may not be the most luxurious hotel room I've ever stayed in, it's like my dad always says:  If you're spending enough time in your room to care about the amenities, you're doing vacation wrong.  Honeymoons accepted, of course.

Speaking of those, this vacation wasn't originally supposed to be a honeymoon, but it was going to be me and my fiancee Kareena, who I'm sure even Jordan would about would make much better company, especially if I could get her into a bikini!  I think we really could have used it, too - our parents have had things arranged since practically before mine came to the U.S., and we really didn't get to spend any time together until she started medical school at Columbia.  I sometimes think she's trying to figure a way out of this without offending our parents - we like each other well enough, and I know I certainly get excited whenever she's around, but what does it say when a woman tells her husband-to-be not to come with her to Mumbai for her grandmother's last days?  She says it's not to burden me with an expensive flight and an unknown time away from my job, but I want to be there for her, and think that maybe it would have brought us closer.

Hopefully that's not too selfish a thought.  It at least explains why I'm here in Maine with my roommate rather than a beautiful girl.  And speaking of THAT, I think I'll try and see if I can get him to join me for some of the local seafood now.  He's been holed up in the room coding god knows what all day, and he might as well get some benefit from a couple weeks in New England!

I think it's wonderful how close you two are as roommates. Friendship is so important. If only there were a way you could be even closer....
