A friend of my mother's just got back from one of those mind, body and soul cleansing trecks in the forest/desert/mountains.
The ones where they sit around and do yoga and meditate all day.

I've never been good at any of that spiritual shit.
"Focus, and store all your energy in the space between your back and your assss... Hummmm..."

Not for me.

I love the big city life.
The Pollution.
The Corruption.
The gritty grime of it all! (Gritty grime is now a phrase.)

I cannot possibly sleep on a matt thingie in the middle of middle-of-no-where India and quit speaking and spend a week "finding myself."
What does that even mean; finding yourself.

I know where I am. I'm right here, writing this post.
In fact, I know where everyone who's reading this is right now: Sitting at your computer. In your house, office, or a net cafe, reading this post.

I should start charging for this.
I'd open my house to complete strangers, they'd sit by the pool and eat icecream and I'd point at each one and "find them."
I'd make millions.

Although I have to say I'm pretty jealous of the people who are all spiritual and shit.
It supposedly allows you to be very carefree.
I guess I'll never know.

I'm a city girl to Ubergirl but about two years ago I went to a meditation retreat with no speaking. It was good for me. Borring but interesting and I got to know myself better. I really did. No distractions helped me discover more about the way I think.
What about the elections in Kuwait? Women getting to vote!

Your blog is hilarious in an honest and reflective way, sensitive in it’s way of dealing with delicate issues in a personal style. Please continue to entertain and enlighten all of us who are curious about Saudi life from a more personal and less politicized perspective. Keep up the good work!
PS: Gotta compliment you English! (as I assume you are not a native…;-))

"Finding yourself" is something people do who have too much money and too much time on their hands.

The rest of us know exactly where we are, we are getting up early to go to work, getting back from work late, and paying the bills we cannot afford.

It might not be that bad to loose myelf, as long as my boss and the bills got lost as well.
