Sorry don't know about Doha apartments , Kev or Jimmy will help ya I'm sure. Click on their usernames or avi's and then the PM function;this allowa you to send a private message to them.They are very helpful though Kevin's newly arrived but LJ been round the block a few times in Doha-he'll help.
Good luck

Aah well, you are both in and out of luck. In luck with things to do: come on here and bitch, moan, complain and have a go at anyone and everyone. Slag off famous people, dead and alive, insult posters and their partners, kids, cats and dogs, be racist, tell bad jokes and generally be offensive to as many posters as possible. Oh, and don't ever, ever, ever provide anything that could be perceived as helpful.

Out of luck on the friends; see above!

I'm being sensible and losing weight before I leave the Uk. See my profile pic and you'll see why I'm trying to shift some of the excess. Hopefully weight watchers online isn't blocked out there.

You're in luck..

There is plenty of space in the BE crap quiz team... You'll be glad to hear that intelligence is not a pre-requisite (we found it too restricting a standard to keep up), but a love for alcohol-based beverages and gossip is definitely a plus..

Thank f**K for that. I also have a love for alcohol- although am a complete lightweight so can be quite entertaining as well! And as for gossip- I'm a woman- it's second nature

Depending when you arrive in September, you'll be able to break yourself in gently, as far as the alcohol goes...
