I love Coldplay's new song, it's exactly how I've felt the past while... haven't been feeling the Christmas spirit. BUT in 8 sleeps, I'm headed to the airport and flying home to spend Christmas with my family. And I feel a little Christmas creeping in. Last night I finished up my shopping for my secret santa here in the UAE. A few of us girls are getting together this week and doing a gift exchange and dinner... obviously, I can't eat the sweets because I'm still detoxing, BUT the girls are going to enjoy dinner and desserts.
Because of some creative booking, I get to fly direct from Dubai to New York on Wednesday night. This morning I spoke with my principal and it's not an issue that I'm missing Thursday at work (so long as all my end of term marks are submitted before I go). phewf. He did remind me that teachers are expected back January 2nd and of course I'll be back... eventually (even I can't predict volcanic ash or a New York Blizzard)... blizzard, I miss DQ Blizzards. . . stupid detox.
You know what I won't miss when I leave this place? I won't miss the perma-wet bathroom floors, seriously, is it necessary to wet the ENTIRE bathroom floor while using the hand held bidet? SERIOUSLY? I'm pretty sure the toilets at the world cup were cleaner than the one at my school. ICK.
Also, what's with the teacher who wears the same shirt 7 days in a row? Does he have 7 different PINK shirts? Or is it the same shirt again and again? This week he's moved on to a peach shirt. Equally as attractive as the last one.
Somehow I ran out of internet time while drinking my green tea here at Starbucks... as I was rambling along here, forgetting my purpose, boring you in the process...
Moral of the Story: Should have stuck with Coffee.
