Monday/Saturday/Monday - whatever. Same sh&*! I'm sleepy. I'm bored. I'm REALLY unmotivated.
I had a fun weekend thanks to new friends. As usual (Dr. Phil!!!) my weekend centered around food.
Okay, Wednesday night, the dinner that AB invited me to wasn't private OR romantic - It was me and 6 men. Under normal circumstances, I would think that is fair, but I didn't expect it! I thought me, AB, some boring business conversation followed by flirting over a romantic meal. What I GOT was 2 German guys, 2 of AB's Kuwaiti associates, Pushyman, and a bunch of hoochies in niqab and tonnes of make-up staring at the 6 guys the entire time! The only flirting I got was when I accidentally stepped on AB's foot (very big I might add) under the table. I even wore a SKIRT. I NEVER wear skirts! BBBBBOOOOORING!!!
My Wednesday night discovery is Richoux in Araya mall!!! DAMN - there are some good looking men in there and I will definately go back when I'm not with 6 men; although they were good for bait.
Pushyman is AB's mandoub, I discovered. HA. Poser.
Thursday morning, I woke up early to go to breakfast with Naz at The One. We like it there. Good poached eggs. The One is also having a huge sale and although I need Nothing, I bought Everything.
Then, I met up with Mediagirl who is totally nice and I really really like her and - Girl, welcome to Kuwait! It WILL get better. I promise. Stop crying.
We went to Wasabi for lunch (Ellie is yummy) and then we went shopping and bought More Crap I Don't Need: I did get a nice sweatshirt marked down from 46 kd to 11 kd. Can you believe that? They wanted to charge 46 kd for a sweat shirt that would cost max $20 in the States. Hala February is full of "bargains" like that: Items that are marked up to be marked down.
Why doesn't anyone open Target here? I love Target. When I get off the plane from Kuwait, after seeing my family, I head to Target.
Friday I had to get up early to go to breakfast with a business associate (more food at Johnny Rockets). Did you know that J Rockets serves breakfast now between 7 and 12 at Marina Crescent? I don't think most Westerners have figured that out yet.
Then, more shopping, then to the Balls of Kuwait (there are 3 because Kuwait has more testosterone) - the Kuwait Towers - for coffee in the evening.
Barbecue Boy is VERY upset that I am spending so much time with my friends and not with him. He only called me once yesterday, "Either I come to you right now, or I go to the chalet. Which one?" I'm like, "Damn - go to the chalet. I'm with my girlfriends." BB: "What is WRONG with you these past 2 days?" Me: (Well, duuuuuh) I am hanging with my friends. (Isn't it fun to see a man playing the clingy girlfriend for once?)
Bunny totally dissed me this weekend. He was supposed to come over on Wednesday and then forgot (better because I wouldn't have gone out with AB and found out that we were NOT ALONE), but the fact that he forgot upset me. He didn't call me all weekend; supposedly "sick". Silly rabbit, tricks are made for kids.
I miss my family and I really should go back to the US for a while. My 10-year-old nefew chipped a bone in his foot, sliding down a hill and hitting it on a rock. They took him to the doctor and the doctor asked him, "how did you do that?" My nefew: "A rock." Doctor: "Oh my God! They are sending kids your age to Iraq?!"
