i’m trying not to start this post off with a “happy new year!”, but i cant think of anything else to write right about now.


Happy New Year!

so its been a while, but in the time between this post and the last i have:

flown on six different planes.

landed and took off from 4 different airports.

almost stepped into dogshit on several pavements / sidewalks.

learned the layout of IKEA by heart.

i found out that airport security makes your 2 year old kid walk thru the metal detector herself,… no the kid doesnt belong to me, neither did i kidnap anyone elses. her and her sister and her mum were sitting next to me on one of the 6 airplanes.

i also learned that 2 year olds will see their mum on the other side of the metal detector,….. and then decide to run the other way,…. so glad i wasnt the mother especially since they were getting on another plane going on a 12 hour flight ๐Ÿ˜›

i found out how scary i sound when i grind my teeth at night.

i learned to put up curtains.

i ate oysters in a restaraunt in a town inside a medieval fort. how cool is that sentance ? ๐Ÿ˜›

i ran atleast 4 red lights cos i didnt think that there should be traffic lights in those places so i didnt see them.

i learned that gay dudes in clothing shops know what theyre talking about and that i shouldnt be offended when:

i decide to get a new jacket

he asks me what size i am

i say i dont know

then he suggests an extra large

and i start to wonder if i really look that fat.

turns out he was right and i happen to be an extra large in france which isnt really that large since my jeans are a size 34 ( inches i think). i pity the really fat people there cos on the one hand they cant shop in the nicer places, and on the other, theres just soooo much good food to be eaten there!

i learned that i should check to make sure that the cake i’m buying is actually “cake” or a type of icecream cake, cos if you dont know, chances are, a couple of hours later, you’ll be pouring it out of the box and onto a plate in the hope of refreezing it to slavage your dessert.

i found out that fatty duck liver and fish eggs go well together,…. i mean fois gras and salmon roe ๐Ÿ˜›

i learned that a rooster is actually a pretty damn big bird.

and last but definitely the most important thing,……

glitter gets everywhere and is a pain to get rid of. just today i noticed one of my shirts strangely “shimmering” in the sunlight.

as a guy in the middle east, “shimmering” anything is not a good look unless you plan on starting a career in the male sex industry.

thats about it for now, it’ll be the year of the rat in a couple of weeks so i’ll be wishing you guys a happy new year then too ๐Ÿ˜›



  1. Except for the glitter on your shirt bit, the whole thing sounds very adventure-ish.

    How’d it get there in the first place? *narrowed eyes*

  2. Oh, Skunk, France! I am betting it was one of the best vacations of your life. So, let’s see – medieval fortress and oysters – Concarneau? Mont St Michel? I am so envious! And where else? Will there be photos? What a great way to start the new year!

  3. LOL
    Now I am pretty sure that you enjoyed it ๐Ÿ˜€
    Just came back from IKEA ๐Ÿ˜› I have the stool! Will probably go back there to buy the mirrors, since they weren’t on sale I thought I could wait ๐Ÿ˜›

    You forgot les croissants and Marons Glacรฉs! I thought you liked those!

  4. I think that you could post a couple of pictures which reminds me that I should ask Sissi to send me those we took with her camera.

  5. ri: ummm it cmae from a xmas tree honest ๐Ÿ˜›

    xpatr: it definately was a great way to start the year! saddly my phone conked out on me so no pics from me but blue has some that i’ll post.

    blue: yeah i liked those too ๐Ÿ˜€ and get the pics and i’ll post them.

  6. OK so today’s word is Suit
    Some Kuwaitis might use the term
    ุจุฏู„ุฉ ุฑุณู…ูŠุฉ
    which literally means a formal suit.

  7. i hate wearing a monkey badala.

    they just feel wrong ๐Ÿ˜›

  8. It’s ุจุฏู„ุฉ not ุจุฏู‘ุงู„ุฉ!

  9. badla badla badla badla moneky suit ๐Ÿ˜›
