Wow, every entry has a different font. I should fix that.
I can’t believe it’s October already. It’s finally cooling off the last couple weeks. We did have a few days approaching 80F last week, but it’s cloudy now and I can start wearing sweatshirts.
They apparently serve a mcFalafel at McDonalds in Egypt. Thank you International Tribune.
English Newspapers are expensive here. There are about 5 from the U.K. and one that’s an international version of the NY Times (my favourite paper in the states), but the version here isn’t as good and costs more than twice as much. Oh well. I do have a newfound fondness for British papers. They’re not afraid to put down the people they’re writing about. It’s amusing. Bit more of a cross between gossip papers and impartial journalism.
I have 3 days off this week since I have 2.5 weeks to use before the end of December. By then I’ll have worked in this country for 5 months (Aug – Dec) and for that I get 13 days off. Did I mention that this country is great. actually tomorrow is Reunification Day. Strange that I can remember watching news when the wall was opened. That was a long time ago.
I went to Ikea last weekend. I mostly bought plants and vases. I just need some color for my walls. It’s all white in here.
In the last couple weeks I’ve seen “Thank you for Smoking”, “Parfum”, “Crank”, and “Miami Vice”. There’s an english cinema close by so a few weeks/months after a movie is released in the States they show up here. The selection now is obviously not that great, but it can only get better from here.
I do have to recommend “thank you for Smoking” and possibly Perfume (or is it Parfum). Not for everyone, but I’m still thinking about it after 2 weeks. Even if it seemed a little slow most of the time. It was interesting.
There was a mouse in the English theatre. It didn’t crawl on me though so I don’t really mind. It was probably just looking for popcorn on the floor.
uhhhhh. I guess I’m off to kill the next 3 days with shopping and drinking coffee.
