Fire
 
Just left home. Khalifa on fire. About half way up smoke is pumping out.

Anyone know anything? Looks really serious

I just proposed to my mrs.

I got her pregnant.

A local last night gave me 10,000 dhs because I helped his kid up after a trip.

Is anyone going to fall for anything?

How is the price of tea and coffee a realistic indicator. Mohammad H from Sharjah spends 20% of his income on Lipton Yellow Label

A load of my fellow workers went into the arab operated offices with request forms for mosquito repellent impregnated fake trees and pot plants this morning.

I suppose we should worry the local staff read them and didn't bat an eyelid. Later on I may have to explain to my managers the concepts of 'joke' and 'sense of humour' (which apparently there isn't a companion for in the local lingo)

I remember a year when Chris Tarrant was presenting the morning show on Capital Radio......... simple idea, but worked brilliantly - he just kept on reading out the time between records........... one hour fast.......... I was on the way to meet Deanetta at LHR......... fell for it completely......... :o
