101| progress interrruptus…

28 04 2010

Starting here, moving along here, finding direction here, and making progress here…

———————–

I did not flinch when she asked me this…

I calmly reacted by telling her…

“Fyne-ness, I am not a player anymore”

She sort of smiled, and right there and then, she seemed to make a mental note that she had believed what I was saying.

I waited for her to ask again, and realized that she was going to be shy about the whole thing.

I did not wait for her, and quickly (and surely) gave her another smooch full on softest lips ever. (Giko, smooch… LOLS)

She smooched me back till her cell phone ring tone went off. I was calm and eased away from her giving her the space she did not ask for, and then remembered that I had not hollered at Hommie since I had told him I was going to do so earlier…

I quickly reached for my cell and was sending him a text message informing him that I would see him later on tonight. I did not give him an apology or even bother saying where I would see him, but I would just call him in the next 30. Just as I had hit send, Fyne sneaked up behind me and gave me a reverse-hug and asked me,

“Basiks, I thought you was not a playa”

“Who was that you was texting huh”

I realized that she was going to trip about drama that I had no interest in explaining now, so I just turned around and smooched her one more time before I told her that I had to head out!

She did not seem amused, but played it cool like she was Meryl Streep in the Devil wears Prada…

I strolled off like a man is supposed to and called Hommie and told him I’d be with him at DaJoint in the next 30. Fyne called me immediately after I had hung up asking me if she could drop me anywhere, as she had a ride (dope ride too) and then maybe she would see where I hang out (aka Hommie’s Digs)

I obliged her, but didn’t want to let her in on my ish right then as I was indeed being a man about things!

She dropped me off about 10 minutes before Hommie’s Digs!

I found Hommie playing FIFA 2008 on the PS-3 and he was 4-0 down with him playing as Uganda against Spain!! (playa please)

So, I reached in his fridge and grabbed him a cold Pillie can and tossed him one and grabbed one for myself too.

We both cracked them open and took a long swig on each before he asked me what took me so damn long and where I had been…

I waited a bit, while taking another swig of the cold pint in the can, and sat down and told him that we could get in faster than he knew. I then re-iterated the fact that we are still focusing on a plan. I told him that I was derailed by a fine fine young lady who has the hots for me.

He smiled and said I was obviously gwan jeopardize the plan if there was a rich fine chic involved….

“hommie..”

“she’s the Boss’ only daughter”

TBC

The next day, we was chilling out when we get a call from the new boss’s fine secretary about a scheduled meeting to discuss finances on the round table…

We showed up about 20 minutes early and went through our plan before hand…

When Mr. Boss Man suggested we talk to him separately, we new something fishy was goings on!!

Turns out, the position only required one person….

And Playa’s previous experience he racked up when doing his internship at the regional development bank totally obliterated my 5 months gig selling software as a commissioned salesperson!

The plan was still on or so I thought till the day I was heading to check out Fyne for our regular mid-week chillout at The_Meating_Place and who do I see giving her a peck on the left cheek…

PLAYA!

You see, you can never take your homeboi for granted…

Espeshlee when he is a laid back unassuming chap around women!

Sometimes, the trust you have between yourselves is tested…

And that test makes you seem a little unsure about your relationship!

But anyways, nuff with the deepness in the dinghy post!

The bank heist plan was resurrected when Playa emailed me the daily cash log system audit plans and notified me about how certain transactions are carefully being tracked by a few senior managers in the bank and working with other senior managers in the regional and other upcountry branches….

We hatched a plan to beat these crooked Bankers and provide evidence to the father of the hot Ms. Fyne what was goings on…

We worked together with the software security firm that had a squeaky clean reputation and got details of the relatively small amounts of money that were being siphoned off of almost every transaction in the bank..

After we had this, we quickly made copies of the proof of the highly sophisticated thefts and made the journey upcountry to a town in the north east of the capital and sent two copies of the evidence to the most ruthless auditor in town, and another two copies to the Bank’s Board chairperson and secretary

A month later, when I was feeding Fyne her favourite chocolate layered cake in the privacy of the Hotel Olympiakos, she told me that bank where her dad worked were in some serious malpractice scandal, and that they were looking for “the source”

The source was being tasked to provide more info and receive a reward that will be used as an incentive in the whistle blower’s act!

Unknown to me however, Playa and Ms Fyne were an underground item and were just using me as the meat between the sandwich till I got too frustrated to go on!

It seems respect is hard to find when your hommie does what you ask, and even worse does what you don’t ask!

Kudos EdSulah for asking whether i am still in the game!

and Mr. Slish for jumping the broom and walking down the aisle all at once…

101| it finds a smooth direction

18 12 2009

If you are just joining, start where 101| it starts and then 101| it moves on from…

So we met at that cute little digs near her home. She had pulled it off coz she was quite close to her old school mate who runs the place. We had been there twice since she found my detailed resume on her Dad’s printer..

What had occurred between then and now…

The night she called me, she asked me if I remember Ms. Hips from St. Mary’s… I asked her how she knew I hustled my O’Level at the best boy’s school ever, and she continued asking about my conquests as the captain of the school’s rugby team and also how I managed to juggle that while being on the comiittees of sports, untertainment and yes the debate teams…

Before I could even put two and two together, she quickly told me she would call me later in the wee hours and I should leave my cell phone on, so that we could continue her 21 questions (link in)…

I holla’d at Hommie and told him what I thought about getting a possible gig at the bank. Hommie seemed a little tense as we chatted on the phone, and I asked him what was on his mind… He shared with me his fear of being caught, and also being tossed in the slammer….

I shared with him my confidence and assured him that we are way too smart for the slammer. The chaps at the slammer would surely end up being more on the receiving end of an improved management systems analysis if we were ever locked up! I calmly told him that we still have a plan that we are going to see through till the end just like Barcelona did to thrash a certain Man-Utd at the UEFA Champion’s League 2009 final…

He seemed less tense and then just chilled…

Anyways, we agreed to meet up the next morning at his digs, and plan a way forward on how to sneak the gig at the bank.

Fyne called me later that night after I had crashed out and insisted I wake up to “talk”… I asked her for 5 to take a leak, and wash up me face so that I can “maintain” at least 10 to stay awake…

She told me that she really wanted to see me, as she had a few queries that she wanted to ask me one-on-one! I asked if is tomorrow afternoon was working, and she told me she even knows a place that she has a feeling I would settle in so well…

Next morning while having cereal at Hommie’s digs, I asked him if he remembered our plan. He nodded his head just like Dr. Sheldon does when he can not get what sarcastic notions his friends Howard and Leonard are attempting to insinuate on NBC’s Big Bang Theory… I re-iterated the importance of follow-through on whatever plan one has, and carefully checking for any signs…. He relaxed even more when o told him I was meeting the HNIC’s daughter called Fyne…. He almost choked on his weetabix… He had that “5W-question” in his eyes….

I chilled out and told him to break out Grand Theft Auto on the PS-3 and we talk about it tomorrow…

She sent a text message with directions and asked me to come with at least 2 large notes… I replied that I had the directions on point and I would make sure that I find another large note as I already had one in my wallet….

I asked Hommie to maintain his composure just like the dude in GTA, and forget whatever and just read some literature on interview techniques, and dealing with difficult people… He asked me why, and I promised I would let him know only when he catches a few pages on the topics highlighted…

The directions to Fyne’s recommended digs were clear as day, and I was just about to call her that I was almost there when the ride I was in stopped at the junction and I saw her foine-tush walking away from a cute orange coloured Beemer-Mini-Cooper….

I then remembered how much of a stunner she was (read is) I completely forgot about Hommie Whatshisname!!!

Anyways, the place was kewl, and had a mean cheese-burger just like Ozzie’s (hola P’sMomz) and hott fries…. We settled after filling our tummies and then she came out with it directly!

“Basiks, how come your resume is in my dad’s hands?”

“How come you did not share this with me?”

“When were you planning on telling me this?”

In all her huffing and puffing, Fyne was just getting hotter and hotter… I fully understood what Ne-Yo meant when he sang… “when you’re mad!”

I calmed her down and told her that me and my friend Hommie were freelance Business/IT/Development Consultants and were looking for new contracts…

“when were you gwan tell me?”

Geez, I sighed and wondered how we moved from me hitting on her subtly to late night conversations to full-blown boyfriend+girlfriend arguments!!!

I waited quietly for her frustrations to blow over as I realized that all she wanted to know was how come she was not in the loop earlier… I asked the waiter to bring two bottles of water and calmly shared with her how I am still learning who she is and I feel her ish of wanting to know about my ish. I also told her that I think she is a good listener and I will let her in at my pace, and that she shouldn’t worry…

I then suggested we take a drive to a nice spot I knew… She smiled and handed me the keys to the Coop! on the way there, she told me she has a place she likes going to as well, when she wants to shut people out. It was more than a coincidence when we ended up directing each other to the same digs. Up right, turn left at the end and drive straight past the huge water tank, and then walk a short distance past the high wall fence and voila….

The view had never changed and we ended up sitting in silence just wondering what was on each other’s mind…. As it were, we both spoke at the same time and both hesitated waiting for the other to go first.

She told me she was surprised that someone other than herself knew this “special” digs… I was so smitten at this point by Fyne that I almost grabbed her and smooched her right there…. I was taken aback when I found myself doing just that. She responded by kissing me back and when we broke off, she looked deep in my eyes and asked me…

“basiks dawg, are you a playa”

101| It moves on…

11 12 2009

continued from 101| it starts

—–

So, I opened her email and it read “ so you think you have game huh”

In response to my “Are you as interesting as you are” one liner, she did seem like th type that likes to be woo-ed!

Wait, who am I kidding here, which hottie does not like to be woo-ed!!

So I set about planning how to make this Ms. Fyne Ness the future Mrs. Fyne Ness Basiks!

I replied her email and told her that I would be out of town with no access to the internet, and left my digits in the mail, and asked her to text me when I cross her mind!

I went home and sat down and paid attention to all the steps that we needed to follow through in order to have Hommie’s Bank Account grow ten-fold!! Step 5 was wait at least 10 seconds before you do anything as the new system had a 5 second time-lag before any command could be initialized and then executed! The entire system was semi-patient because if it flopped, it would shut down for an hour and the entire IT department would hone in onto that one error, and would surely find out our ish within those 10 seconds…

Anyways, she called me later that night saying that I crossed her mind twice, earlier on but did not have any airtime on her phone… She had just stolen her Dad’s post-paid line and explained to me that after hustling with all his other children, her dad doesn’t fight with them anymore, but just regulates their calls by putting a 10 minute timer for non-regular calls, so she was going to find a way of having my digits being input as a regular called number!

So, we set aside the day and the time to grow Hommie’s bank Account to Friday afternoon at 15.34hours and be clear by 15.38 hours…. Leaving us exactly 240 seconds to pull off our biggest bank heist ever…..

Me and Ms. Ness chatted a lot more than we thought we could once our tense natures subsided.. She told me that she would not tell me where I lived, but show me only and only when I cross her mind again… I flinched a bit on the phone and she noticed ( oba how?) and I explained to her how I think she is a pretty thing and I think she must be fed up of a tonne of losers saying that… she sighed on the phone…

Me and Hommie then plotted for a few things;

nice new synchronized watches-CHECK;  

Money for taxi-CHECK;

Cool new shades-CHECK;

Clean clothes freshly ironed aka pressed-CHECK;

pack of cigarettes for the lousy security guards-CHECK;

Money for taxi to leave-CHECK;

You see, me and Hommie had planned to only set the plan in such a way that the dimez are multiplied onto our account, but not withdrawn… In such a way that we do print-outs of Hommie’s bank statements before and after and then go straight to the Managing Director MD/ Chief Executive Officer CEO / Head Ni99a In Charge HNIC/ BossOfDaBosses BODB/ SayMyNameTypeDudes SMNTD/ Don’tMessWithMePlayas you get the drift!

Anyways, Hommie and I walked to the entrance, went straight to that cute lady at enquiries and flashed her my biggest smile and asked her how much it would cost to have a print out of my Hommie’s latest bank statement! She gave us the charge and we didn’t flinch, but asked her to do so up to that specific time ( 15.20 hours Friday afternoon) We then went to the AT-Machines and input his card and did the gimmick as he had been taught. Meanwhile our insideman was catching on our drift and said he would beep Hommi’s phone on confirmation!

60 seconds later, InsideMan flashed the line and we finished our bizness… Left the ATMachine, and waited another 5 minutes before we went and input Hommie’s card again… This time he printed the statement!

It read 4,500,000/=UGX….

We walked straight to the MD/CEO/HNIC’s office and told his foine-ass secretary/ admin assistant/ his keeper/ coffee and biscuits maker/ you get the drift that we had an appointment!

In our best English accent ever, we sweet-talked her into letting us see him!

She gave in and we politely thanked him for seeing us and we told him that Hommie’s account had grown ten-fold in less than 20 minutes…

He asked for proof, and we showed it to him!

He did not believe us…

We attempted to walk out and he called us back and asked us to have a seat!

He then called our InsideMan who happened to be the most trusted insideman ever… He confirmed the mishap and he asked us to wait a while as he called his Head-Legal to come in to his office and write down the statements which we signed…

My heart was in my mouth as Hommie calmed me the heck down…

We signed the statement and MD promised that we would have that money removed off of Hommie’s account! And we would get a finder’s fee for pointing out the mishap and not sneaking the dimez as many others would have done!

Whence everybody left HNIC’s office, he asked us for the truth and we did not flinch at all… He sensed something was amiss, and he asked that we email him our resumes…

Later that evening, Ms. Ness called me saying her Dad asked her to pick up some stuff off of the printer and she saw what looked like a resume with my name on it…

101|it starts|

4 12 2009

So I saw her standing bending over the railing with a tush that fitted so perfectly in my hands. I pretended not to notice as I was listening to my friend explain to me exactly three more steps to get the number of zeros to move from 4 to 5 on the new bank account as the purchase of the local bank by the bigger international bank had caused some drama in allocation of new moneys on his account and he new a system to make it better…

She was looking away at the time and I was praying that her attention gets caught this way… She was light skinned and her hair was just a little bit messy as the wind had gone through it a few times…

So, step four needed two people to press the ENTER key at the exact same second and we would have the amount reading 450,000 to 4,500,000 in less than 5seconds..

She got something in her hair and I asked my friend for a second as I quickly approached her with a lame excuse that something is in her hair… before she could say squat, I removed it and quickly walked away, but not before I carefully noticed that she was a stunner; the ones that do not need to pretend that they are hott; the ones who are hott without trying and get bored by the fact that almost every dude comes up to them and says that they are hott; geez… I could go on

So I walked away leaving her without giving her the chance to say thank you!

3 minutes later, ok just a short while later, I walked backwards and stepped up to her and asked her what the lamest line she has been hit on with… She tried to hide the smile, and right there and then, we clicked…

We switched email addresses (yes King, doing it Rogue-Style) and I sent her a one liner the very next day…

I checked after 3 days and found a similar one-liner and realised that she was attempting to show me her game…
