Saturday’s Snapshot (surat al-sabat): لقطة السبت

Okay, sure, things have been a little slow over here these days.  There’s been nothing here but ostriches and while ostriches are always appropriate, sort of like champagne, I can understand that looking at the lady ostriches settling into the dust might be a little bit dull after a while.

I did have a column in The National last week, about forks, so you could click over and read that if you’ve got nothing else to do.  And I am guest editing on the yeahwrite site, (last week and this) where there is a give-away featuring the book that I’m in–and what do you mean, you didn’t know I had an essay in the number-one-with-a-bullet-new-release-on-amazon?  You could click right over there and order yourself a copy of You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth–hell, order two, maybe three–because it’s wicked funny and you might want to share. Or have a copy in every room. Whichever.

There are posts coming – about Liam and his sudden, not entirely pleasant, decision to have become a surly teen-ager pretty much overnight; and about this new house we live in, in the equivalent of the Abu Dhabi suburbs, where almost every day a new thing goes wrong, causing us to engage fully and substantially with what you might call the “fix-it” culture of the Emirates. Or make that the lack of a fix-it culture of the Emirates.

In any case. More posts coming soon (I know, I know, your life has been incomplete, a dull void of nothingness, because mannahattamamma hasn’t written anything new).  In the meantime, another animal picture from Kenya. This one has a little more, shall we say, bite to it.  You’re welcome.

    Fill my nothingness void, please! I have missed you. And this photo feeds my Discovery Channel addiction.

      Safari makes me want to sell all my possessions and go live in the bush, start another career as a guide. All those animals, all that sky and space. It’s amazing. An upside for living in a place with no theater, no symphony, no good movie theater, and a staggering number of not-very-good-overpriced restaurants.

    You shot that photo? We never got anywhere that close.

    Great job on Lipstick. Did I tell you that? I just lent my copy to a friend.

      Oh thank you for the kind Lipstick words! Totally riding on coattails on that one – that Leslie Marinelli is a hella editor. And yes, we were *that* close to the ostriches. And lions. Stunning. I am addicted to safari, which I’m not sure is an entirely good thing #bankrupt
