Simply ME...

long trips considerations

I have always thought that I don't have any problem with flying hours, or sleeping on planes.. I refuse to deal with any sleeping pills no matter how long the trip is, and sometimes I even find myself getting into a deep sleep before departure and nothing would wake me up.. not even the craziest landing.

But this time it was different.. and not because of the long flying hours and jet lag, or the fogs and all the delay. It was because of the airline itself. Etihad Airways!

The first and last time (hopefully) that I will think of it as an option.
A long stopover with one of the airlines would eventually equal the delay of this particular airline.

And don't get me started with how lousy their service is, they just throw food on the trays even if you're sleeping. They would do anything to wake you up. I remember in the middle of the journey with everyone sleeping, there were like 4 or 5 things thrown at me without being asked if i want to eat or not. Including Ice Cream!!! How strange is that?

Getting stuck in Abu Dhabi's airport is definitely not a nice thing, especially when it's just too small, ugly, and don't have enough chairs for everyone to sit. People would be sleeping on the floors with long queues for everything, using the phone, getting food.. hotel accommodations... anything..
The odd thing was to find in such a country with such an airport the digital screens not working, and the airport staff writing the new flights' schedules on paper boards! And people fighting their way, huge crowds, crying babies, trying to check the new departure times. Which were not even fixed, with changes done almost every hour or so.

It was an experience I'll never forget. One that taught me to book for an airline not the connection time! Having another 9 hours delay on top of the 12 stopover hours was very unbearable, considering the airport itself.

Bye Bye Facebook .. Welcome BLEACH

I have deactivated my Facebook account.. for a while now! Yes.. and this happened exactly after I posted my 'why I love Facebook' post.. weird ha.. I guess this has something to do with the Gemini's nature.

And just today, a friend called to tell me that they had formed a group with the 'D*** F**** must return to Facebook' name.. so Im giving it a second thought! But not now.. maybe later.
I miss the fast way to say hello to everyone .. But that's all about it.

Anyway.. the funny part is that I don't have Facebook anymore.. but I have a replacement.. it didn't take me a long time to get addicted to BLEACH. And now I find it hard to stop, so my attempts for a better ' time organizing' plan is out of control. AGAIN.

My Favorite SONG!!!

From day one, I decided that my relationship with bloggers would be through blogs ONLY!
This is what I wanted, because of many reasons, but the most important is that I don't want more drama.. I have enough of the ' you said... I said... ' stuff. I had enough of the talking about people and the gossiping which thank God is one thing I don't experience here..

But anyway, I guess with all the limitations and restrictions.. and my absence in the past few weeks, or even in the month or two that followed my wedding.. I couldn't avoid this CRAP!

As much as you try to avoid it.. and as much as you try to keep yourself away, you would get dragged eventually in the most ridiculous arguments and the 'I said.. you said' bullshit.

I mean people c'mmon.. who cares? really.. why would I care to be listening to this crap when I have more important things to do, and when Im the least interested in what's happening with bloggers! I have enough friends to worry about.. I have enough people to care about.. why would I be interested to know about bloggers' stories especially the ones whom I've never met!!! why... THINK!!!?!!

The last thing I wanted

I never imagined that it will be the same here..
or a little bit worse! I thought this is one thing I don't have to worry about...
.. I guess I was wrong!

I have never expected that guys here are RUDE! What happens is that It's just the same.. even if in a different continent.. nothing would change, really!

Cars still stop, guys would still open the windows and try to open a conversation.. guys would even come close and say some words in your ear 'hey .. how are you doing'.. 'beautiful'... 'hello...'!!!
They would still WHISTLE!! imagine .. whistle!!!!

I have never thought that I might think about worrying to walk alone after 8 ... here!!!!
I would still have to cross the road and walk on the empty side..

No matter how much you try to avoid this shit.. it would still happen.. no matter where you are!!! And this is one thing that freaked me out when I got here!
So disappointing... and SCARY!
