Late and in a hurry: Ramadan Gaddafi!

Just so you know what all my inlaws are laughing about every year, and of course they could not resist calling us up cheekily wishing us Ramadan Gaddafi.. That dates back on my very first Ramadan and my hapless attempt to delight my father in law with an authentic Arabic Ramadan greeting.. well, and delighted he was...

Our place here is pretty much a mess right now since we'll be going home to Saudi Arabia soon. As usual we've shipped things we did not deem too important first so our suitcases will have space enough to store all the books and antics we've bought - and as usual we're just discovering that our judgement as to what is important and what not cannot really be trusted. I just wait for the day when we face our day of travel with nothing to wear..

Inmidst all that, my dear husband once again insisted on getting me to the doctor to check if I'm Ramadan-fit. Now I do appreciate his concerns for my health but hey, the mere fact that I do not exactly look like one of Gaddafi's female bodyguards doesn't mean I will drop dead any time soon. Unfortunately the doctor told him I was fit to fast but that he should take care I eat properly before dawn. Oh, don't wonder - my husband takes my doctor visits Saudi style, read Mr. Responsible will be present every single moment, watch over the undress cabin with Argus eyes and of course discuss every detail with the doctor at great length.
The downside here is not that I am fit to fast - the downside is the 'proper meal before dawn'. My husband now expects me to eat something to the amount of a stuffed cow in the morning before I'm even halfways awake..

(Yessss, habibi!! I'm nagging!!!..)

Oh well I just hate to travel, and all the hectic that comes along with it! No matter how much I long for our home the mere thought of packing, planes and other discomforts is gruesome to me. The cats are with me on this one and I guess we will have a hard time to pluck the furries from under the bed or where ever they may hide. They're already giving us very suspicious looks..

By the way, according to the Austrian ORF a Danish airplane that was set to start from Vienna airport had to be evacuated by the police. The reason: passengers felt threatened by a foreign looking young man because he was reading an Arabic newspaper..... After the plane was thoroughly searched by the police it could take off, albeit two hours late and minus the unhappy reader of the suspicious newspaper who was expelled from the flight by the Danish pilot. It turned out he was a harmless student.
Now I wonder if I should offer my husband my niqab so other passengers might not feel threatened by his suspicious looking Arab nose. Or maybe we should get ourself some Micky Mouse comics for camouflage.

Finally, I just read another blog in which some people comment on my blog. Very nice and caring people, indeed, calling me a poor lost soul in bitterness but they do wish me to find real happiness one day. Heartwarming, isn't it? There even was a real fortune teller predicting trouble for my marriage. I wonder all the time how this guy could possibly know that my husband just never learns to put the toilet paper back in its box, in spite of knowing that the cats need scarcely three minutes to roll it all up and spread it all over the place. Tarot cards? A crystal ball? Eerie...

Well, so much for now. I'm tempted to write 'I might not be blogging for a few days' but looking at the various dates of my entries I guess it would be a bit off the mark.

So I just say I'll be back soon - provided I'm not too busy building that balsa raft and crossing the ocean..

Ramadan karim!

Ah no, I don't think much of those comments, I should get used to them by now. Guess that day it just caught me on a wrong foot with all the stress of those days.

Hey, Konrad - Euskirchen is doch so gut wie nebenan.. ;)

Meow, anonymous - yes we also take the cats with us, but only when we stay longer than four weeks.

Abu Sinan, lol! Take care, they might think you must be extra dangerous for taking so much effort to have a plastic surgeon turning you into something Germanic looking..
