You've know you've lived in London too long when...

1 . You don't even bother looking out of the window when you get up in the morning to check what the day is like. You know it is overcast.
2. You believe that Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday are all good nights for drinking. Sunday day is also entirely reasonable.
3. You can't remember what 'customer service' means.
4. After a big night out you find yourself looking for a Curry house and not a 24 hour McDonalds.
5. You start to accept queuing as a way of life.
6. More than three hours sunlight on summer days seems excessive.
7. You always call soccer 'football' ...and you have a team...and it's not Manchester United.
8. You don't think twice about buying a packaged sandwich.
9. A sunny lunchtime means searching for a patch of grass and stripping off practically down to your underwear.
10. You expect men to actually cut, comb and style their hair (using hair products). And to wear decent clothes. Jeans and a t-shirt are no longer socially acceptable.
11. You think 40 quid for a haircut is quite reasonable.
12. You finish every sentence with "Cheers" or "In'it", and start every conversation with Hiya.
13. You only just realise you have lost your sunglasses - you left them in Greece 2 summers ago.
14. You start thinking English cuisine isn't all that bad after all, I mean, it's hard to beat a full English breakfast.
15. You are on to your 6th umbrella and your second overcoat.
16. You buy a disposable baby BBQ from Argos.
17. You realise your sunscreen is the stuff you originally brought from home with you.
18. A day at the beach means wearing the warmest clothes you own while standing on golf ball-size pebbles and the thought of swimming doesn't even enter your head.
19. You actually say, "Sor'ed" or "it's all gone a bit pear shaped".
20. Wearing a suit in a pub is relatively normal attire. 21. You have given up complaining about the Victorian-like banking services offered in the UK.
22. You have given up explaining why you are half an hour late to work as no-one notices or even cares. In fact - you may even join the one hour gossip session around the coffee machine before booting up your computer.
23. Coming to work with a hangover is entirely accepted and indeed expected at least once a week.

Clocktower, Deira, Dubai - Eid Eve Posted by Hello

Happy Eid to whoever's reading this - Its Eid tomorrow in most of the Middle East & on the day after in the rest of the world. Wish you all a wonderful & blessed Eid.

Had dinner at Zara's (not as cool as the name sounds, trust me) with NB, SH, FN and NEHTA. Saw those log legged freaks dressed in all white again, in their pirate ship, parading on ricca rd.

Spoke to Princess today to wish her - she's much better now which is good to hear. Might be leaving for the US in a couple of days. :(

Burnley 1 - Liverpool 0

Tuesday 18 January 2005 19:45 , FA Cup 3rd Round

Watched the game at Opera. All Alone. FN & SH went to take a walk on Ricca. Before the game SH sed Liverpool lose to shite teams. I told him to fuck off cuz he doesn't know shit about football anyway. Told him Liverpool will destroy burnley/

So there I am, watching the game, Liverpool are playing the reserve team apart from Hyppia and Pongolle and Nunez i think, and it looked like Burnley was some premiership side and Liv looked like the 3rd div side! honestly they were playin so shite it was embarassing - true the pitch was in bad shape but burnley were playin on it too! They couldn't pass, coudn't keep posession, it was probably the worst I've ever seen a liverpool side play.

Rafa did introduce Baros in the second half which they had started a little better - but a bit too late and then Mr. Traore scores one hell of an own goal - looked funny sittin all alone in the dugout later tryin to hide his face with the hood of his jacket.

So, 1-0 to burnley, out of the FA Cup, Rafa says he's not TOO bothered and thinks he made the right decision in playing the youngsters, Stevie G out with injury might miss game against the saints, Kewell still out too, Alonzo's gonna be a while himself. Haven't heard anymore on Aimar either.

And here's the worst part. With 2 minutes to go in the game, FN & SH come to opera to find me starin at the TV, they cudn't stop laughin with the score line. Embarassing end to an otherwise okay day.

Rafa : Morientes will improve

Rafael Benitez has assured Liverpool fans that Fernando Morientes will prove an excellent signing once he's had time to settle into life in the Premiership following his transfer from Real Madrid to Anfield.

Morientes made his Liverpool debut in the 1-0 defeat against Manchester United, a game that unfortunately ended his remarkable run of scoring on each of his professional debuts. With Liverpool creating very few clear-cut opportunities during the match, Morientes was substituted after 75 minutes, clearly showing the effects of having spent most of the season on the bench in Spain. "It was difficult in his first game but he never stopped trying," claimed the manager after the match. "It was his first game and he needs to get fit. He said he was very tired when he came off but he knows now how he must play in the Premiership and will get better with more training. The important thing was that he never stopped trying."

Damn this thing's sure easy to set up! Too bad you aint got much control over the design, so wot I is gonna do is work on me own design and see if I can jazz up this blog a little, since it does let you touch the html up.

Anywayz, nothin elze is new. Dubai Shopping Festival's on, lots of things happenin, just yesterday there was a big parade of freaks with long legs dressed in white wearin white masks - scary shit. Also had 'roboman' with them - gives me the creeps.

Liverpool have lost to Man Utd at home thanks to a Jerzy Dudek special. Morientes & Pellegrino makin their debuts in the 1-0 game - both lacked match fitness and was evident from their performances.

Arsenal have lost to Bolton which puts Chelsea 10 points in front - Wenger concedes that the title is Chelsea's unless they fuck it up which I doubt they will with their huge multimillion pound squad. WHY CAN'T WE GET A ABRAMOVICH AT ANFIELD!!! Life's so unfair!

Thats it for now. My chick still hasn't left for her month long US visit - Last communication was on MSN on sat. She'll probably leave after Eid now, which is on Thursday. Another one away from the family - used to it now actually. Will miss the fun. Adious, and Eid Mubarak!

[On Dangerous Drugs]

Ali G: Which drugs is class A?
Professor: Class A are mainly the heroin and cocaine types of drugs.

Ali G: Does class A guarantee that they is better quality?
Professor: [annoyed] No. Nothing to do with quality, you can have absolute crap.

Ali G: For real, which is the acid that actually make you fly?
Professor: No acid makes you fly but can make you think you fly.

Ali G: Cuz me mate Dave said said he took this type and he flew all around the room and his mum told him to get some ciggies from the shop, and he flew there down Egham street and flew back and he was back in five seconds or whatever but he'd forgotten the ciggies.

Professor: Well, there's the answer, isn't it? you think you can fly but your feet never leave the ground, and if you're not careful you may trip up and hurt yourself. Posted by Hello
