FRIDAY FEAST- FROM EGYPT




Appetizer
Which snack do you like to get when you go to the movies?
Nothing. And here I prefer to see shows life, belly dancing, fire eaters, and handsome egyptians are better than the last Potter movie if you are a fan (I am not)


Soup
What year did you start using the internet?

in 2006 that's why I am sitting here with an arabic keyboard and type like a snail (for those who still not know I am in Egypt at the red sea.

Salad
What is your first name in Pig Latin? (Here’s how to speak it if you don’t already know!)
In Pig Latin ? Is that the language what the pope uses ? For the moment I rather try to speak baby arabic and one of the words I learned is 'Habibi" which means darling or sweetheart ! So call me Habibi ! (the pig latin page takes ages to load so I leave it to the priests)

Main Course
Name something you are picky about.

Toilets. They absolutely have to be clean ! otherwise I prefer constipation !

Dessert
Fill in the blanks: I haggled for a bracelet yesterday and I will haggel today for earings for at least the half of the asked price ! If I don't write tomorrow I was killed !

I love haggling in a foreign country--fun, fun. Hope you are having a good time, Gattina!

Pig Latin is new to me too :)
I can't haggle. Now I know who to take along in those exotic countries!
You are too charming for those jewelry sellers to get upset about your haggling, but I hope you survive the experience, lol

Just wanted to let you know, I will be away from my usual commenting for 2 weeks. I'll be cruising the Panama Canal and I hope to be able to Blog from there. (But you never know!) Check out www.dackelprincess.com starting Tuesday (Nov 13) for two weeks and you never know what you might find!
See you when I get back.

Looks like you are having an enjoyable time in Egypt. You definitely have to haggle. I hope you will post tomorrow. hahaha.....

I so agree with you about the toilets, Gattina...I'd rather hang on than go to a dirty, smelly loo.

I sooo agree about the toilets even though it can be dangerous to hold on to it like that.... *giggles*

I think I would prefer handsome Egyptians to Harry Potter as well!
