Hi Rosh..
I'll use this comment section to clarify myself if you don't mind.. :)

Sorry for the sudden disappearance.. I just had to delete everything that has to do with my gmail account including my gmail account.. I have my valid reasons behind it.. no need to discuss it here in public..

I'm enjoying my stay in Vermont.. Burlington is such a beautiful place.. the lake is just amazing.. I don't wanna leave the place ;)

Might just fly to NYC next weekend.. will see how it goes with regard to my work license first ;)

U take care..

rosh said...

Sorry folks - I've been involved with one of a kind project from hell.....designed by evil lord lucifer! it's taking all my time...that and something on the personal front, has kinda turned my simple life upside down the past few weeks...

thanks to ya'll for stopping by and saying something..always nice to hear a voice/word :)

hope to be back soon enough :)

BuJ said...

be strong buddy! we're behind you!

Jayne said...

I miss you !! (well, your posts.....y'know what I mean!)

Inspire Your Mind said...

Roshy.. upset my dear ?

Just let your steps take you to Saks Fifth Avenue.. you'll feel much better..

Don't forget your friends across the border ;) Saks or no Saks.. this is the question..

rosh said...

aww thanks Mr BuJ. Ms Jayne and Ms IYM :)

am fine (i think?) very very tempted to take off this weekend and go home. in fact am pretty much considering boarding an Emirates flight straight into UAE saturday morning - call it impromptu or plain crazy. feels right plus they are flying the new A380-800 in and out of JFK, that's an added incentive/push :) kinda just waiting for the first set of draft numnbers on this freaking deal, hopefully today or tomorrow -and then am gone for a week or 2 weeks. yipeeee!

BuJassem said...

rosh, JUST DO IT!

Inspire Your Mind said...

Rosh.. steel one of my uncle's cars and bring it with you ;)

rosh said...

what cars does your drive or collect i.e. i just wanna make sure they are worth "stealing" hehhe :)

BuJassem said...

rosh, trust me, her uncle has expensive taste.. just steal the easiest one.. don't "steel" it... do it properly.. hahaha

i bet you can even steal the driver's car and IYM will be happy, desperate times call for desperate measures :P

rosh said...

well in that case IYM may i have your uncle's address please? :)

i ain't doing this stealing thingy...i know of people who know people that were part of the former Al shaab gangsta in deira :) one of 'em is a dxb cop now..am sure, once i give them the green light they can do the necessary and ship to you :)

Inspire Your Mind said...

Uncle lives across the street from BuJ's house in Dubai ;) But he'll be moving out soon..

And yup I don't mind you 'stealing' one of his properties for me.. we're one family afterall and I'm his favorite ;)

I promised him I'll find him a pretty Libanese wife as his second.. so he wouldn't mind if he wakes up one morning minus one car ;)

rosh said...

hahaha! christ, IYM, you are hilarious! :)

I lived in IRAN for 10 years or so. This was during the Shah's regime.
It was an amazing country and an amazing time. The places, the food, the culture.
The hospitality of the Iranian is such that even if he stabbed you he would do it with such sweetness that you would only ask for it to be twisted deeper.
30 years later UAE is today, what they were back then but without a lot of the things.
And on that:
Salaam Agha jaan, Chettorri?
Khoobi?
Mann? Khoonay hasttam.
Ya3ni?
IM BACK!

Hey Rosh.. have you heard of the horrible accident that happened here in Canada few days ago ? the decapitation thingy on one of the public buses ?

I'm scared to death now..

BuJassem said...

was it your fault IYM?
salamat lal jameeee3

rosh said...

Christ! this is shocking! Sask/Manitoba of all places?? This is unbelievable! American movie lunatics have moved into real life Canadian countryside!

I bet, the monster came from Toronto or Vancouver!

You not to worry IYM - Ottawa is the safest place in whole of Canada and the continent :) chillax - and focus on passing that driver's test - I've passed on the word to my people in Deira, who know people that can get the "job" done ;) shall keep you posted lol :)

rosh said...

Ahlan Kaya-g. Where did you live whilst in Iran? I've always wanted to visit. I have more than a few Persian friends in the UAE and must say, all that you've said is very true - the culture, the food, the music, a naturally "royale" air and a bit natural innocent arrogance/pride. Unique, strong and very culturally, Iran. Every year when I head home for Christmas I make plans to visit places, I've never been to -Iran and the Taj Mahal tops the list :)

Rosh,
I just read Marjane Satrapi's 'Persepolis' - the cartoon autobiography the movie's based on. Get your hands on it of you can, absolutely worth it whether you like Iran(ians) or not. But especially if you do.

kaya said...

We lived in Tehran, on the airforce base.
My mother taught English to the cadets.
I still remember so much from back then.
It was a beautiful time. Saw Shiraz,Isfahan, summers on the Caspian sea..... sigh....

BuJassem said...

i'd love to go and live in iran.. aaaaah.. the isfahan bridge.. the lovely blue
