jumeira jane

lazily wakes up, yawns, stretches, wonders what she'll do with her
morning. she gets out of bed, looks at her reflection in the bathroom
mirror, and decides it's time for another lift.

showered, training clothes on, it's time for the morning jog. she
calls marina mandy and sets up brunch.

she steps into mall of the emirates, different training clothes on,
meets up with mandy, and they head to columbus for brunch. skimmed
milk latte, low carb salad, green tea. a little shopping.

hubby will be home soon. she tries on all she bought, decides to
return half of the stuff, tidies herself up, calls the doc to setup an
appointment, bosses the help to prepare dinner.

had dinner, time to hit the scene. meets with the rest of the girls
for drinks and gossip. hubby too tired to join, but it's ok. kisses.

go home, sleep, prepare for tomorrow. yoga? sushi? yawn. doesn't matter.

Bush Announces Iraq Exit Strategy: 'We'll Go Through Iran'

WASHINGTON, DC-Almost a year after the cessation of major combat and a month after the nation's first free democratic elections, President Bush unveiled the coalition forces' strategy for exiting Iraq.

so the office you work at is fancy. bfd, the people you work with are assholes and your boss is a shithead.

you work hard, you make lots of money. bfd, you don't have time to spend it.

you have a nice car. bfd, you need to drive it between morons and idiots and broken roads.

your trophy wife, hot, sexy, dumb as hell. bfd, you can't talk to her about anything deeper than a shopping orgy.

you're smart. bfd, all you do is a 9 to 5.

you're think you're shit, but you really aren't shit.

caution! danger!

driving along the dubai - abu dhabi highway (a long and boring drive) i noticed a red side in the distance. actually there was a number of them, on both sides of the road. as i got closer i realized that they're warning signs, cautioning me against the high voltage lines running above the street. you should see them, they're quite impressive: written in block capitals, white letters on a red background, with many exclamation marks. 400 kv (400000 volts, scary).

i'm really glad they put these signs up, because they discouraged me from trying to scale the power towers and dangle from the high voltage cables. or, like many people, i like to sling exceptionally good-conducting wires at the cables, since it's really cool to see the
sparks that fly from that. but you know where their value is highest? they remind us of the dangerous radiation present in the area, so as to use the radioactivity protection conical hats (the ultra-cool ones with a tin-foil layer).

thank God for warning signs.
