We're Moving...Blog and All

We've sold our apartment...finally. Not the price we'd anticpated...but the
important thing is that it's sold and our family will soon be reunited, God willing.
I've immensely enjoyed this outlet to my frustrations, joys and "situational
comedy that is my life." It's far from over, of course. But due to all the stress
of showing buyers my place, forcing kids to study at squirt-gunpoint, renewing
passports that expired TWO FREAKIN' YEARS AGO, and all the other
fun that an expatriate can have, I'm not writing here so much anymore. Also
due to the opening of a  portal to the dark side of Yahoo!, I opted to open a
Gmail account and I'm having some problems logging in here as much. (Mainly
due to my inability to remember all 674 passwords to accounts all over the
internets...I digress.)

So, God willing,  أنشاء الله to those who read Arabic, we'll be starting over in the
USofA next month some time. I don't know how long it will take before I have
internet service there, but I'll have a new and improved blog site to go along
with my new and improved address and new and improved outlook on life....
you know, since I'll have access to my spouse again. So stay tuned and I'll post
a new URL as soon as I get one. And do check back in...I'm 100% certain that
we should have all kinds of new funnies. How could we not? I'm going to be
travelling from Egypt to Texas by myself with 5 kids, 12 suitcases, 6 carryons
and a partridge in a pear tree. But one question from customs at any stop along
the way, and that partridge'll be stuffed with pears and handed over to the agent
as a culinary bribe!

Speaking of culinary bribes: I FINALLY convinced Randa that we should leave
"Randa's house" and move to Texas. I had to tell her that I'd take her to McDonalds.
See? Bribery DOES work.

Tell her Aunt Beep will take her to the GOOD McDonalds.....we have a new one nearby with a kick-butt playground (that is actually clean still and doesn't have a "ball pit" a/k/a cesspool). It also has good happy meal toys. I'll take her to Chick-fil-A too.....even better in my opinion. And the zoo and the museum and and and....hurry!!

Well, we'll have to wait on the Chick-Fil-A thing. She doesn't know what that is yet. She does know McDonald's though after being told NO for the last 8 years.

Anyway, we're working on it. See you on the 19th...God willing.

Teach them all the old McDonald's ad so they can sing it (loudly) on the plane all the way to Texas:

McDonald's is our kind of place:
Hamburgers in your face,
Pickles up your nose,
French fries between your toes,
And don't forget those chocolate shakes,
They come from polluted lakes,
McDonald's is our kind of place.

What the hell??? I go and announce I'm moving and then two cheeseballs start commenting for directions for iPhone usage and yahoo crap in Chinese??? What's this world coming to? Soooo, I must sadly turn off the comments now to keep people from abusing my site. Once I get all my crap unpacked now that we're in TX, I'll get back to blogging, until then....there's always T.V. Guide.
