A very quiet day for a morning that started with a bang. The morning drama was a car accident! I was on my way to work in a taxi when the driver bumped into a car trying to change lanes! After realizing that I was still in one piece, I got out of the car, paid him his fare and took another cab to work. Pretty exciting stuff!

As for the evening plans — it’s tennis for now. We are hoping to watch the semi finals of the Qatar International Tournament that will end tomorrow.

As it is a public holiday today — Friday — hunting for an apartment is quite impossible! So it is just tennis!

My friends from Jordan and elswhere have been keeping in constant touch with me — something that pleases me to no end. I just got a call this morning from my friend Lara (a.k.a Armanieh) and last night my friend Dalia in Duabi called and we chatted for more than half an hour. I miss them terribly!

I also received a glossy 2004 calendar this morning from my friend Heather in Minnesota. It was very thoughtful of her and helped me forget my morning drama.
