Hmm. Long time no see. Got quite a few rants to get out of my system.
Tuesday:Day of the soccer fans’ highly awaited match between Ahly and Barcelona. Needless to say when you have someplace to be, chances are you will have a long night at the office. We wrapped up at around 8:30 making it too late for the stadium and mission impossible to find a cafe with empty seating. Would like to thank Zizo for valiant efforts that day. I am much obliged for picking up – driving cafe to cafe – finding seating -watching match – drop of at car. I really am. I might as well add that Zizo is a devoted Zamalek fan and hence found my misery quite entertaining. To the team “7ara2to dammena” that was the worst soccer I’d seen in YEARS. What happened to the boys we cheered in Japan?? Ma 3alina. Got home at an unearthly hour.
Wednesday:Was double booked, had to be in 2 places at the same time and somehow ended up in the place I’d rather not be of the two. Life is grand that way. I totally blame the MBA, what kinda insane dude gives a 4 hour lecture on a Wednesday. Aaaaaaaargh. Funny thing is, he was hopeless, didn’t get a word. Must find good book on the topic.
Thursday:Went door to door trying to find a bank that can issue an Internet card within a week. Apparently I’m way too impatient for banks in Cairo and the fastest I could get it done was 10 days. Yalla, lets hope that is enough time to buy and ship desired item to friends in the States prior to their flight home. Prayers very welcome. Tried to shop that day – conclusion: I need a raise!!!
Friday was uneventful but my car (you all remember my car 😉 ) needed to go for it’s agency overhaul (maintenance etc.) So basically that simple task took from 7 am Saturday to near 3 pm; that’s almost 8 hours to have the car checked and the air condition recharged. I just love the VW people!!! For all you skeptics out there it isn’t the first time, they are always this slow and this inconsiderate!!!!
Kefaya 3alikom keda.
Update: They’ve located my missing exam and I scored an A- 🙂 (apparently I was better off with it lost)
Song of the day: Mika – Stuck in the Middle
