this seems pretty primal
He who dares not offend cannot be honest.
GOTD: Most of the English TV that I get here often has Arabic commercials. There has been one on over here for Coke that has a song that plays through the commercial that is in Arabic and I'm assuming, is singing about how Coke makes your life wonderful.
Someone at work actually has that song as their ringtone! Really? You are so addicted to that crap that you have downloaded the commercial jingle as a rigntone?
Give me a break.

Gripe of the Day: Belly flopping off the wagon during the holidays and through tax season. And now suffering the results of that with irregular sleep patterns, freaking cold complete with blooming cold sores, weak hair, rash on palms, and the return of the 15 pounds I lost.

Keep calm and carry on.
GOTD: OK, the variety of English channels over here in Egypt is, well, not vast. Movies repeated the same time the next day, etc. Out of desperation, I watched an episode of "The Doctors". They were talking about depression and they brought in an outside "expert" to offer some tips. Their outside "expert" was none other than the chief medical officer of Pfizer, you know, the makers of Zoloft.
And of course none of the advice talked about exercise, nutrition, talking to a consular/minister/etc. I talked about how your medical professional could "help" you with medication.
Having the medical officer for Prizer come into talk about treating depression is like having a nutritionist from McDonalds some in to talk about how to lose weight.

GOTD: My office constantly has food related events which I do not participate in because there is literally nothing I will eat (birthday cake, cookies, muffins, donuts, etc). I generally understand this is the way it is, but its frustrating to always have to sit out. On the rare occasion we have an event involving meat and veggies (a cookout in the summer, chili cook-off, etc), there ALWAYS has to be a vegetarian option.
Who cares if we exclude someone who wants to eat healthy instead of birthday cake, but if we don't have veggie burgers at the cookout we being insensitive and exclusive.
And then we all complain when our health care costs go up.
