Happy St Patricks Day To You And All

Despite the confusion of my PDA and my Outlook files it is still St Paddy's Day here in Kuwait. I am in exactly the same room I was last time. When was that? Two years ago, three? I think the hotel has changed owners: it is now part of the Swiss International Hotel Group (not Swissotel as I first thought). It's a grand old place, minimally upgraded but functional - free internet, breakfast included and the host company is paying so I have no idea of the rate!

Also, it looks like what I once thought were blood stains in the bathroom last time - they're still there - are probably paint drips.

The toilet paper has a protractor accurate V - if only other hotels were so conscientious!


Anyway I've worked out that I have changed time-zones 9 times already this month, so you can see why this issue in Outlook is bugging me so.

Anyway, I'm popping down to the Starbucks across the road for an Irish Coffee (HA! - Kuwait is dry) or at least a green cake of some description.

Anyway, I'm exhausted but I need to stay awake for another seven hours or my life will be a misery again.

How do I stay sane? you ask.

Who says I do?

Sounds like piss poor planning if you ask me-could you not have at least spent St. Patties day in Dubai?

If I had known I would have had a beer for you.......
