just another day

Ok, finaly I found something to talk about!
I wake up at 06:00 am, had my breakfast and got ready for going to work, my Lionking came to pick me up later, but we discovered that the streets are empty, very samll number of cars, and this is realy strange especially we still in the middle of the week! what's going on, he said maybe we went out earlier than every day. but when we reached the main street that leads to my work, O-Oh, it was blocked, we tried to go from another way, it was blocked as well.
the problem is that I don't care if I arrive at 07:00 0r 09:00 but what I care for is that my Lionking should reach his work before 08:00 am .
We trid but in vain. We both live in two different neighborhoods in Rasafa side, our works are in al-Karkh, it is like going to Basra or Mosul not the other side of Baghdad. So we returned back to the first point, which is Rasafa, then we passed through Adhamiyah and reached his work.
We decided to go to his work is better than returning back home because it is closer to my work and it will not take to much time to go.
we face this kind of closing road almost one day per week, we need one hour or sometimes more to go to work, this is ridiculous, can you imagin we are losing two three hours of our day everyday just to go and return from work, aaah, I think we need a small helicopter is better than a car that got stuck in the traffic every ten minits.
going with my fiance to his work is a nice thing, it is like sharing every little thing with your partner, I met his golleagues, the majority were girls, hummmm! but they were nice and the type of girls who talk a lot and like to gossip!
but I had fun, I find his personality in the office and with other people, I saw him working and taking his place in that corner where takes control of every thing, we talked, laughed had hot nescafee made by one of the girls their, I liked to be their. but everthing has an end, I had to call the office and tell them about the closed roads, but they said the roads are opened now and everything is ok.
So, I said goodbye to the girls hopping to meet them again, and my Lionking drove me back to the office.
the reason of closing the roads is the visit of the Iranian former president Rafsenjani, (is that even a name?) to Baghdad, I do not know why he is visiting Iraq now, and why the government is happy with this visit, and why they close the roads for him? ok I know I don't like to speak about politics so I will stop.
From another part, I was thinking about asking you a question. I read in one of the newspapers several weeks ago, a cute article about TV channels and people, the main idea of the article is "what would you do if all the satellite and local channels will stop for one month, and there will be no TV at all? and why?", can you answer my question? as I want to write a report about that for my own, thank you in advance.



Oh god,this morning was horrible bcoz f the traffic,i didnt find empty roads but closed roads with hundreds of cars,no way out.i will write abt that too in the next post.many employees and students went back home,i struggled to reach the highway to abu ghraib,a mockery.the ppl didnt welcome rafsenjani"as i noticed",me too.
as for the satellite channels and tv, i wouldnt care but miss the DRs show.i dont watch tv alot as using the net but i like the show.

Sorry you have so much trouble with traffic and roadblocks Micho. At least you got to spend more time with Lionking.

I know some things about Rafsenjani from some of my Iranian friends. He is one of the richest men in Iran and widely viewed as very corrupt. He is currently chairman of the group who will choose the next supreme leader of Iran. I think that Rafsenjani wants to be the next supreme leader. I wouldn't be surprised if he visited Iraq to talk about some business deals.

If I couldn't watch TV for a month, I would go to the public library and get a lot of DVD movies to watch. Well, I already do that sometimes. :) Also, I think I would read more of my books. There are about 100 channels on my TV, but most of them I never watch anyway. ;)

Baghdad Dentist
This streets are very busy, it is realy difficult for everyone to go to work especialy if he lives far from his work.
this problem will never solved untill they remove the T walls and reopen all the streets.
I will publish a new french post as soon as I can :)

you know what, I don't watch tv that much, but i like to watch Opera, the doctors and songs :).

Marsho, you know what, I have not time for reading or even to watch TV, but I watch the doctors or opera while I'm having tea, after my lunch .

Rafsenjani is the one who turtured the Iraqi War prisoners at that time, during the Iraqi-Iranian war..that's why all Iraqi's hate him..
