Diary of an Involuntary Expatriate
She spoke senseSleep well
Didn't she just! I nearly fell over backwards with surprise!Alex woke us at 4 in the morning, all bright eyed and bushy tailed.
Whew! Thanks for letting us know. Now we can all sigh a collective sigh of relief. Looking forward to reading the nitty gritty. Rest well, you deserve it.
Letting you all know was the first thing on my 'To Do if I Don't Go To Jail' list. I really appreciated everyone's support.Right now I am just relaxing and trying to calm down before I write about the experience. I am sure you don't pages dripping with vitriol!
Them too! Someone big and powerful moving in mysterious ways must have been on my side. The verdict shocked everybody present.
If you need bail, I'll pay.But it does mean I own you.That's the deal. Fuck the figures.By the by, if you don't need bail, I need a holiday. I think a stay at Fat Hippos might be what is required to, as Mrs IG states, calm me down!Either way, I have a knife!
IG, the fact that you were willing to stump up blood money for me counts now as my debt in your favour so as soon as I am open, I shall send you an invitation. The only things I can offer are good food and accommodation, sport fishing, golf on a course that disgraces many international ones (crodiles counting as a natural hazard) and a crack at the waitresses and neices. Boring, I know.No need to bring a knife, I can issue you a sword on arrival.
I hope you're resting well as I type. You'll find this strange, but I did not sleep well last night, in part due to waking and wondering what had happened to you. I'm relieved.Hip, hip, Hippo!
I am terribly sorry that I may, in part, have been responsible for your nocturnal disquiet. Thank you for resisting the temptation to say, 'I told you so' as you have warned me in the past about being a little more careful in this environment.Oddly enough, noting the time your comment was posted, Alex had already woken us by leaping out of bed full of energy. He did, however, relieve me of dreams disturbingly reminiscent of Reading Goal.
Good news. We were thinking of you!
It is jolly humbling to realise just how many people were thinking of me and I was very grateful.
I have been reading your blog ever since you commented on Ins G's blog. So glad to hear this outcome and can't wait to read all about it. Guess the story will start with a reminder to get the coffee on first. Great news.
Oh it'll be a coffee one, definitely. I have taken my time because I needed to calm down a bit. Now that I can start seeing the funny side, I'll get on with bashing the keys!
A coffee? I tend to read these at work so will shut the door, take phone off hook, bring in food and a jug of coffee and to cap off, read out loud so people think I am having a speaker phone conference with someone.From the little hints you have given, I am wondering if recycled artillery ashtrays have become the valentine’s gift of choice or wedding shower gifts.
It's true, isn't it Nigel? All you teccy guys have to do is learn to talk in your sleep with a set of headphones on and everyone assumes you are working!Ashtrays are officially out legally, considered as they are now after my little fraca as lethal weapons. As far as Valentines gifts go, maybe we could FFE (Free From Explosive) some slightly smaller diameter ammmunition (after all 105 mm would not merely stretch the imagination) and offer those instead? As far as their use as confetti, I would definitley use them to shower the man who cuckolded me and went on to marry my ex wife. But then I would be in trouble again, wouldn't I?
SO, happy and relieved to see this. Yes, i'll be sure to have a pot of tea at the ready when i read all about it.
Tomorrow or the day after at the latest, Megan! I had to produce my passport to prove I was legal so I lost a bit of time looking for it. At least it meant the maid gave the house a thorough cleaning!
I feel like I have been stalking your blog ever since your fight. I'm glad it turned out ok. I can't have my favorite blogger in jail because then life will get boring for me. :)
Mind you, if I was blogging from an African jail, I bet the posts would be even more interesting...
Please feel free to comment, good or bad. I will allow anything that isn't truly offensive to any other commentator. Me? You can slag me without mercy but try and be witty while you are about it.
