F**king off for the Eid
[Editor's Note: Apologies, have had to repost this entry due to proxy issues for certain MENA readers re the word F**k in the URL]
Won't be posting, taking long weekend to work and the like out in the city of Essaouira.
I note, for the record, that as of today the joint venture process is completed and I am officially tied into this thing.
I suppose I shall take this Eid weekend to drown my sorrows (or celebrate as the case may be).
Should have actual items of value when returned next week.
I should add as well I have found out that some charming piece of scum has stolen my identity and is living well on fake accounts in California. I look forward to equally charming conversations with the drooling morons in the various credit agencies as I explain to them I have not lived in the US in years and don't even like having to visit, so clearly I would not be opening up accounts in California.
Added thought. Per Italian colleague, I have a Lord Byran chic.
I have no idea if this is compliment or an insult. Perhaps both? What the fuck does it mean?

You mean the poet Byron or a Byron-hero? Either way, odd.
Congratulations on the jv, finally. There are always silver linings.

(Not sure what the appropriate way would be to commemorate the event - somehow smashing a champagne bottle over the nose seems like a bad idea. Maybe some variation on ribbon-cutting?)

It means your friend is quite literate with their backhanded compliments/opaque slams.

Edited because of some idiots whinging? Bah.
Else, I have no idea which Byron.

Looking forward to the pitter patter of tiny learned feet.
