Blah...

I killed a bird yesterday. The stupid bird just flew into my windshield, as I was driving along the Abu Dhabi/Dubai highway. I saw it coming from the left, and it just hit my windshield with such force, I really thought my windshield would crack!

I was shocked for about 3 minutes, not really realising what had happened. Poor birdie. R.I.P...

That was yesterday morning, the start of what looks like is going to be a very rough week. Work, work, and more work....enough work to last me a lifetime...I've come to the realisation that I hate meetings. Not just because most of them are simply completely useless and a complete waste of time, but also because meetings usually mean that I have to stay an extra 5 hours at work just to try to catch up on the workload. And that was in fact the case yesterday.

And to top things off, I have a horrible back ache that's making me miserable, you know, the kind of back ache that makes you hurt when you take a deep breath...and that woke me up at 5AM this morning. I feel like I'm 70 years old!

And that was just Sunday! I wonder what the rest of the week has in store for me...

WoW... you know, while we were driving in Syria, a hawk just decided to plunge into our windshield. It didn't die but it almost had us killed... and I realize now that windshields are really, really strong.

Listen Sis....I feel bad enough already, I don't need you to emphasize the fact that I killed a bird ok? :p

And my back still hurts. I am sure the 4 hours of sleep do not help either.

KJ, a hawk!!! I would have definitely freaked and started screaming!

Tough luck on the back....tis stress.
