My Ramadan

Finally Ramadan is over and all is back to normal, all these sleepless days now behind i can look forward for some sleep now . Really sleep deprived and two heart attacks and a bitter fight marked my Ramadan. First, Suzanne had to go to work at 8 so she will get up at 6.30. i was given second shift so i came home at 12am and by the time we ate and slept it was 2am then get up at6.30 man ! that is frustrating.
Aunt Natalie had a heat attack , her first, She got admitted in Al Amiri, we thought she wouldn’t make it, but she did, she is fine now , today she is able to walk few metres on her own. Now this has scared Jacob even more, he is worried that if he’d get a heart attack “it’s gonna hurt bad ” .
Got into a mess of a fight, which wasn’t mine anyway , i went to defend a colleauge whom i hate from the bottom of my heart , wouldn’t normally do so ,but had to defend him because it was work related issue, but what the phuck….. some passer by Kuwaiti kids got involved and beat the crap out of my colleague and tried to kick me some [but didn’t get me even once,] security came in and gave same old f##king advice, ‘why you guys fighting call us next time ‘… One of the main boy came after few minuets and showed me the “wait! I’ll be back” sign. Next day the same thing repeated. But both times i gave him such a cold look he must have got worried somewhere, third day he came to us and asked “what was the fight all about”. We explained what danger he was in because we didn’t press charges even when he is caught on camera [ this the coolest lie i have ever told in recent years ] the guy panicked and started to explain how he thought he was defending a Kuwaiti … I said
“hey dude ! we were apprehending a thief what the puck you were thinking.. all are same , no Kuwaiti or Ajnabee is above the law, a thief is a thief”. The guy was full of embarrassment though he wouldn’t say sorry, shook hands wished us Eid Mubarak , thislam, ya thikklafia, Allai salmik, fimalla……… Man i am relieved this is over !!!!! . Was worried to death that anytime i would get banged by 25 Jahrawi’s and that would be my end.
Thank God ! all is over New month new start, a big lesson of life “don’t fight others fights , no matter what, times are a changing .

  1. (Sorry for the random-ness of this post)…Four months ago I posted on many blogs, letting everyone know that we were trying to start a podcast (Rabbit Hole Daily) by people who had emigrated to other countries…I thought it would be interesting to share all of our “misadventures” and news… I had hoped to get a contributor to/from every continent (i.e., a Brazilian in Japan, a Japanese person in France, a French person in Australia, etc.).People leave their respective home-countries for all kinds of reasons; some people marry a “foreigner” and leave their country, some people take a job or do academic research out of their country, some are forced to leave for political reasons, some do it for the adventure. The podcast was designed to welcome all of these points of view. We’ve been working with mixed success to get all types of voices…Podcasts are a great way to get complex stories out that would never make it onto tv or radio, and we’d like to use the medium to create something that’s informative, eclectic, and interesting, all voices and topics welcome (provided they’re well-written)!At any rate, I’m writing to renew my call for contributors and say that we’re still around. We were accepted by itunes, we’ve been publishing consistently, and although we’ve had some technical concerns (people write articles, read them into a mic, then get them to me via internet or skype; getting it all edited evenly has been a challenge), we’ve just received some equipment donations by listeners that will make it possible to produce with ever-better audio quality.Please consider listening to the podcast, and more importantly, contributing articles. (Articles are 2-3 pages, submitted 4-6 times per year, contributors are featured on our “contributor profiles” page, rules for contributing can be found on the “contribute here” portion.) If you know someone who has emigrated from their country of origin and is a good writer, please pass the word!Thanks!
