Why are people driving white Camrys so evil? There was one trying (unsuccessfully I might add) to overtake me on the 5th this morning in bumper-to-bumper traffic. He was gettin his groove on - trying to squeeze a 3rd lane between me and the Kuwaiti female student in a Pathfinder next to me. I am reasonably certain that ALL Kuwaiti female students in this country drive Pathfinders for some reason. I don't know why. Perhaps it is 99kd/month installment as advertised on 99.7 - Radio Babtain. Pathfinder drivers, unlike white Camry drivers, are usually good, courteous drivers. Maxima drivers are THE worst. Most of them have little..... brains.
I went to the SAS last night for a dinner function. The security was high: for some reason, it seemed to be Old Security Dude night (guess the younger ones were down in Um Al Haiman chasing Saudis). There were about 5 of the oldsters at the SAS checkpoint. Needless to say... I did NOT feel like flirting. One of the old dudes told me that he was going to give me a ticket because he couldn't see my front license plate. I just told him to give me his number and get it over with. His compatriot, other old dude, kept saying, "no, no. He doesn't understand." Personally, I am sure that I was the only one who didn't understand. Enough to make you want to start permanently shaking your head back and forth. Oi vey.
Sheel ow meshi: gotta have one today. It has been too long.
Most of my American friends are asking me if I fear the terrorists. I fear all forms of terrorists (especially the bad drivers), but am I nervous about recent events in Kuwait? No, not really. I was nervous in some parts of DC. I saw 2 shoot-outs right next to me. I was on my way to a nightclub once and I saw police shooting at bad guys; the bad guys crashed and the shooting started. It was next to me at a light - kind of like a movie. Then I thought, 'oh Sh... I better get out of here, it isn't a movie.' Do I feel weird about working somewhere with a lot of other Americans? Yes, because most of the Americans here are weird.
I'm happy that the Kuwaiti forces are catching these guys. My friends friend was killed in the Fisherman's Diwaniya off the Gulf Road in the 80's when someone drove into it (I believe with a bomb - is that right?). He was just drinking tea and smoking sheesha. At least Kuwait is taking these situations seriously. They have probably prevented a lot of deaths.
Oh, what am I doing for Eid, you ask? Sitting on my bigfatass in front of the TV, that's what.
