Suffering through, VS. View from the roof terrace of our complex is terrible.



Sorry to hear you're not doing so good, though. Please look after yourself.

Bugger The prep is horrible and far worse than the procedure IMO. Best of luck for an 'all clear' result.

The last one I had was on a Monday too, sucks having to waste a weekend day like that. I hate the prep more then anything, the taste of quantity of it was the worst part of the whole thing.

Are you ready......

Yes, up at Atlantis in the tanks. Can go pet them and play with them for a few thousand dirhams.

Joking aside though, there are wild ones. I've seen them from the golf course in Abu Dhabi and occasionally they come in close to shore. Lots towards Musandam and the peninsula at Khasab though, it's beautiful up there and I've still not been.

I wish I could say snow was a novelty. It's nothing but a pain in the arse. Rain is better in every way.

That's a good health service where the patient can schedule it.

That's twice I've seen a mystery reference to dolphins. Is this to become another obscure but legendary animal like reference like wolfbagging on the Canada forum?

Ugh. The prep is of the sort most foul. Oddly though none of it effected MrBEVS much when he had his. I could not fathom this at all given what I experienced.

You have my sympathy. Double ugh.

I know! Weekends are too valuable to waste on that.

Well when you're paying for it I guess you get a bit more say in it! And it's not cheap.
