So Anna is angry at me for wanting to promote her Art work through my Twitter and Facebook accounts. I would normally drop one of her pictures in here but I will give it a miss this time. I don´t get it! Creative people who want to commercialise their work need publicity – yes?
Talking of which
Korlan has just celebrated her birthday by referring to me as her dearest friend! We went out a few times when I lived in Kazakhstan. Now she is living and working in Israel. My sister used to be married to a guy from Palestine so I know the plight of the people of the Holy Land very well. If I say I despise the way the Israelis treat Palestinians then I am berated as anti-semitic. This is just bollocks. I am anti-fascist. I hate it when anybody uses their Religious beliefs to bully and terrorise, whether it is Christian Crusades and slaughter of Native Americans, Islamic State or Zionists. All bastards as far as I am concerned.
Marjo is sweet and using me as her personal taxi service. Which is fine because she is also introducing me to other people. I will finally get round to purchasing the BBQ set I´ve been planning and get some friends round tomorrow.
Then again Daisy Daffoldil has disappeared. I was there when she let the bottom drop out of her world. Now she appears to have taken time out of reality.
Which takes me back to an interview I had four years ago in Qatar. The new Head of the Secondary school decided she wanted to really get to know her new colleagues. SO she organised a personal interview for each of us, asking us all the same questions of course..
She went for the classic three strngths and three weaknesses question – I´m sure you´ve all heard it!
Being divorced twice and having many failed relationships I couldn´t resist answering my number 1 weakness,
“I´m not very good when it comes to picking women!”
She was not amused.
