There's a few expats here who play Halo  from time to time. Haven't played either one in a while, and its good to play in groups of 3-4 again.|
Sometimes our cook (Ranjit) plays with us. Its somewhat surreal, because if he gets killed, it's always "oh, that's all right, sir" and if he gets a kill on you (rarely) "Oh, I'm sorry, sir..."
Which brings up another suirrealness.. The staff all seem to like to append "sir" or "mam" to the end of our names all the time "Saramam" "Mattsir" etc. It even goes to the extreme that when a plate of food is left for one of us who comes home late, the label on the plate says "Saramam" or whatever..
