Willkommen nach Frankfurt!

After about ten or eleven hours of travel, from Saudi Arabia to Bahrain then back to Saudi Arabia to connect to another flight (for real) I am in Frankfurt Germany.  Oh yeah, but first I met this awesome girl from Tel Aviv who is now my Facebook friend (social media for the win!) who got lost along with me in the airport, through a series of horrible directions from airport workers…  We finally made it to our fork in the road.  She was gate 13, I, gate 15.  Since she was going to Isreal, a known terrorist-ridden country with hundreds of years of historic terrorism, suicide bombings, religious cleansing she had her very own special security screening system to go through.

Oh and since I’m from America, coming from Saudi Arabia, I got my own round of fun.  Taken to my own private room, they gave me the full one over.  When all was said and done, I made it to my gate and here I sit.  For the next several hours…

But don’t worry for me too much.  I got a great cappuccino, an authentic german pretzel (which was meh) and a couple of hours of T-Mobile Internet for the small cost of $22 (hella expensive).

Oh did I mention they are jamming, like blasting, Beyonce and David Guetta.  That’s pretty fabulous haha.

A Day at the Beach

I spent the day at Ra’s Tannura today, right on Saudi Arabia’s coastline.  The weather was, as usual, wonderful and the views, stunning.  Whenever someone from my family gives my parents a hard time for moving to Saudi Arabia, I’ll just have them show this picture.

Yeah, I’ll take Saudi Arabia over Houston, any day.  Can you believe I’m actually saying that?  I freaking LOVE Saudi Arabia!

Packing My Bags, I’m Ready to Go!

In just an hour and thirty minutes the bus will pick me up to bring me to the airport in St Louis.  From there I’ll fly to Washington DC, then to Paris France!  I’ll meet up with the family in Paris for Christmas, travel around the country to various friends’ for celebration, fun and catching up.   Then I’ll be off to Bahrain for New Years!  Really excited about that.  After Bahrain I’ll be jetting off to Saudi Arabia, exploring around the country, making photos, having an awesome time.

I am all sorts of excited about the trip and hope to keep you all informed of my adventures here and on my Twitter. Wanna help?  Leave me some suggested sites to visit in the comments!

Misguided Midget Asshole with dreams of ruling the world

That is a quote from the movie The Last Dragon.

Why do I have this quote? Just saw a few minutes of the movie yesterday on some cable network (TNT?). Did you know that Bush is the shortest president in nearly twenty-four years? Did you know that the last, and only, president as tall as John Kerry was Abraham Lincoln? Just something interesting I scooped up today.

Bush is our Misguided Midget Asshole…

Misguided because he attacked Iraq when he should have attacked Afganistan (if anyone). He put all his sights on the Middle East while ignoring current allies and foes in Europe and Asia (respectively). We have allies furious at us and enemies with weapons that could kill thousands of us.

Midget because, well he is too short to take seriously. I mean, he is average, but I want a president that towers over his people, to show strength. Weak argument I know haha but:

In his 1982 book Too Small, Too Tall psychologist John Gillis presents [these] results: in the 21 presidential elections from 1904 to 1984, the taller candidate won 80 percent of the time. What’s more, he says, in the whole history of the Republic, only two presidents–Harrison and James Madison (5’4″)–were appreciably shorter than the average height in their day.

An asshole because he focuses on his partisan agenda where big money companies take precedence over his constiuents. He focuses issues where he has money at stake, while ignoring the rest of America. Nota bene!
