One of my mates triggered a topic which seems to have created more than a slight distration.
So we're talking about each of our last songs- the song that you'd like them to play at your funeral!!; I know, quite a topic eh! its amazing how the human brain continues to remain constructive after almost 24 hrs of doing what we do.
So these are some of the brighter suggestions that were tossed about:
- My Way (the robbie williams version)
- U cant touch this (MC Hammer)
- knockin on Heaven's door (Guns N Roses)
- Leaving on a jet plane (John Denver)
- Home (Michael Bublé)
There were many others and they all made for good laugh. So for the millions who follow my blog, why dont you come back with your "last song".
BTW this one is mine:

I just love the enthusiam people have here, epescially to get to the mosque on time. Its like how my side of the town gets on game nights. Offcourse the fundamental difference over there being that we throw away our cars to catch the game at the local pub, but I swear if you were to compare the two photos you wouldn't be able to tell them apart.
While on this subject, I spent close to a months earnings last year on myself. No not by doing what you're thinking, but instead on parking tickets, getting papped each time I'd do over 120K, and by doing a lot of other stuff that you shouldn't do with your wheels. So when I see a sight like this, it does seem unfair that none of these gusy would get the same pie. Imagine if these cars were to get fined, bet you could feed an entire African nation for that amount.
Moral of the story: "number of mosques" X "number of traffic violation tickets" = percentage hike in salary of government employees.
The guys at RTA should pick up on my theory.

So yeah hoo haa, we landed on the moon, but then didnt we send a drone to Mars some time back. Huh! guess that was not so big a deal. Its amazing how every year, whenever this topic comes up people still question the moon landing. I actually come from the school of thought that it was indeed one giant leap for man kind that fateful day, so as you can see, I'm a believer. But everyone seems to be questioning the whole idea now so I have a few questions of my own:
1) There were 3 guys who achieved this historic feat- Neil, Buzz and "the other guy". How many of us actually know the name of "the other guy". How ironic that every group picture of the trio that I've come across features Neil and Buzz seated looking comfy and "the other guy" making the background scene; I mean come on seriously.......
I think its only fair to dedicate this the 40th year of the moon landing to "the other guy".
2) Who decided that Neil would make the first step anyways? Was he captaining this mission? Lets say he were, in which case the rules of engagement especially when concerning the "third kind" calls for the captain to hold ground and get the boys out first.
Here's my theory:
(a) the toilet on the capsule was clogged!!!! and Neil was a big boy with the smallest bladder or (b) the three of them must have fought for it and the first two made the list, coz as we've been told, one had to stay back to keep the engine running!!!!!!
Can you believe that, we send man to the moon, the moon, once again- THE MOON, but dont have an auto pilot/ anchors ahoy sort of a mechanism onboard. Wow, I would never get onto that flight. Seriosuly, I think its just too far, too much, too long for my liking. I'm a sucker for good airline food, and pills to substitue a pasta or steak dont go down well with me; but may be, just may be the onboard entertianment system must have been good coz that brings me to
(c) the onboard movie was still playing and so "the other guy" decided to stay on till the end, and hence the anonimity.
I'm happy for the moon landing, I really am. I think man shud forget the moon, and mars coz thats familiar territory; lets go to Venus guys!!!!

And then there is Gods next best creation after Eve- the wonders of CABLE TV. So here is poor me, sleepless in Dubai (if I may) quite deprived of the 3 letter activity for some time now, hung over my only late night companion, and she never dissapoints me. Yes ladies, they're playing LOVE ACTUALLY, only thing missing now is..........
Yeah nothing strange about that, but raised my curiosity, when I walked in to see a number of single mommies and daddies chatting it up when the kiddies were doing their business!!!!
Networking of a different kind, I say.
