Dolly, hold the phone! Showtime Arabia has added Mork & Mindy to it's afternoon lineup. Have I mentioned how much TV sucks here? It's literally impossible to become a couch potato as there is nothing on television. Not to worry, though. Everything has Arabic subtitles for our convenience. Giddy-up.

Night Two Alone. The Man left for Egypt on Sunday and I won't join him in Cairo until Wednesday. Last weekend was The Man's big "End of the Season/Dubai Mighty Camels' Blow Out Party." I felt a great deal of anticipation all week - cleaning and getting the house and garden ready for all these people that I don't know. I don't know why, but I've always been like that. When I have a party, I want everything to be perfect and it's not on a daily basis (i.e., dirty laundry on the floors, dust on the shelves, scum in the tub, etc.), so that means work, work, work!! It's a lot more work these days, though. Anyhoo... it was a great party. People came, people drank, people ate and left with big smiles. I made a gallon of margaritas with freshly squeezed lime. Yum! You'd think these people hadn't had a real margarita in years. Wait! They haven't! That's one thing we can't get here: a decent margarita.

Last night I couldn't get to sleep. I don't know if it was being alone or the junk food dinner, but I couldn't get to sleep. I watched movies and TV all night and found myself glued to the European E! Britney Spears Special at 1:00 AM. I couldn't tear myself away though my eyelids were heavy as two water balloons. I finally got myself into bed (on his side) and fell asleep. Unfortunately, I foolishly answered the phone at 7:00 AM (thinking it may be him) only to hear Ann the Middle School Secretary asking if I were free to come in. I begrudgingly agreed, slugged into the shower and raced to the school for a day of 8th grade Spanish. At least I had my book and got well into the 7th chapter of The Devil Wears Prada.
