So this was our day

So we went to watch Ladder 49 today. I bawled my eyes out. I'm such a sucker for any kind of drama. Not to mention I really like Joaquin Pheonix. Whilst wiping the tears from my eyes, I turn to my husband to see if he was sharing the same emotions I was. Big surprise: NO! (note: that was sarcasm). All he could think of was how much weight Joaquin Pheonix had gained. While I struggled to control my emotions in public, my husband was trying to figure out how many big macs it took for the poor man to reach this state of bellyness.


Afterwards we decided to grab some take-away. So off we go to Taza. Which is this new place that opened up a few days ago here in Muscat (chicken. yumm.. love chicken). Anyhow, that was big mistake. In Oman, we get excited over anything that opens up. Heck, there are people here that would attend the opening of an envelope if it were possible! Its sad, but does have a funny side to it. Who am I to talk, we went to the place even though it was opening week.. We stood in line for 15 minutes, when we finally reached the front of the queue, the person at the cashier informed us that there were no more sandwiches left. He even said it with a smile! That must have been the trigger, cause all of a sudden my husband is yelling at him for not making an announcement to the people waiting regarding this matter. We left with not food. Thank God for Hardees next door.

Feeling sleepy.. thoughts not clear.. I should say goodnight..
