Back from a one week trip (hence the dead blog – apologies to my regulars).
I decided during my trip this time to avoid wireless spots, avoid checking emails (work and personal) and to basically just shut everything out.
I recharged my batteries: watched decent unedited movies in plush, state of the art theatres; enjoyed ethnic food at a multitude of establishments; stocked up on books and DVDs and enjoyed the casual coffee and a good read at places like “Borders.” (I used to take this stuff for granted when I lived in the West).
I arrive in Kuwait and find out we have Bird Flu cases and all hell is breaking loose (It doesn’t surprise me knowing how lax we are and how ‘wasta’ can facilitate the import of practically any type of bird).
I find out the government intends to resign.
I then encounter 350 emails, 85% of which deal with viagra, breast augmentation and enlarging cobblers.
I’m like…what else is new?
