Hilarious March 25, 2009

and well done Aafke!

Aafke is a Dutch artist with a great sense of humor (which I am guessing perhaps has lived in Saudi). While surfing her blog Clouddragon yesterday I bumped into this :

“Do you feel the need to harass others?

Do you despise free will?
Do you want to arrest women and stripsearch them on trumped up charges?
Would you enjoy chasing people to their deaths?
Does beating up people to death sound amusing to you?
Do you agree that cats and dogs are created so men can chat up women?
Are you ready to eradicate happiness?
Are you too disgusted by all the loose women walking around?
Are you willing to put it to a halt?”

It is theeeee Muttawa Compatability Quiz, made by Aafke herself and it can be done here: Muttawa Quiz .

Cracked me up this early, gloomy Wednesday morning. Check her site out, she has a lot of really interesting posts mixed with a great sense of humor and some serious common sense.

Me misses the crrzziness of Lebanon

Me misses the crrzziness of Lebanon

I see that it has been some time since I posted. Usually not enough is happening but now I feel too much is spinning around in my head. Not that I am doing much to be honest. I go to work, go home, go food shopping and that’s about it. I don’t feel like seeing anyone these days and I am spending most of my time alone or with my children.

My mum and her husband was here for seven days which was really nice. I took them to a few places but to be honest, I don’t feel there is much to do here. They aren’t into going to shopping malls which is understandable and there aren’t any decent beaches as far as I know. I have heard of one called Algerian beach or something but I haven’t got around to figuring out where it is yet.

Something that amazes me here is how Bahraini women ALWAYS¬† talk on the mobile while driving… It’s like their ears are stuck to the mobile. It is very rare, I think to see a Bahraini woman driving and NOT talking on the mobile. Just a note.

The weather has become hotter. I miss Swedish spring. The smell of grass, trees,the sound of trickling water, the sound of birds, the sight of birds building nests. Uh, I miss nature so much.
