So I thought I would post a post with good news for a change. One where I was NOT ranting and raving about some unspeakable outrage perpetrated against me by someone. I KNOW, right?!? Exciting change of pace for me!
But then I was blocked from Blogger for the last three days. I would try to go to my homepage and it would give me this big error message I assume was about why it didn't want me to write a nice post for you guys, but it was all in Arabic except for the words "Blogger Help Group", but then I wasn't going to go join some 12 step blogging program and have them ask me to stand up in front of the crowd and explain my problem, "Hi. I'm Michel. I'm unable to log onto blogger for some reason that can never be known because it is all in Arabic and I can't read Arabic, well, technically I can read the letters and the numbers, but I don't know what they MEAN unless it says some sort of greeting or is calling me a crazy lady (Which I don't think it was, but I gotta admit I didn't look that closely to really check b/c that is a LOTTA work)" and then have some jackass ask me why I didn't ask someone at the Embassy who does speak arabic (your neighbor perhaps, who speaks it fluently) translate it for me - because then I would have to go into the whole why I'm so lazy thing and that tends to take FOREVER and then people are not so willing to help me when they know that most of my problem is simply because I was too lazy to do anything and had decided to just wait it out because I was sure that eventually, our blogging standoff would come to an end. (Someone check! That might have been the biggest run-on sentence EVER!)
But I was right. I ignored it and my blogging embargo was ended.
SO, I'm here to tell you some good news (following a small rant that was none of my doing). . . I found ALL the babies homes. It is amazing what one bawl-baby diplomat can accomplish. I should actually think about using this skill in my official meetings. The Sudanese will be so uncomfortable that I am crying in their office that they might actually sign all the peace agreements just to get me to leave! Admit it!! It's BRILLIANT!!! (Seriously, I'm going to try it - I managed to get one man to take all 3 dingos so they wouldn't be alone!!! You know what they say, "If it ain't broke! Don't fix it!" )
So this morning I went out to say goodbye to the babies (which I have been doing for the last 3 days, frankly because I cannot seem to tell when the people say they are coming to pick them up, and I don't want to be caught off guard and not have snuggled them before they left me) and little Stinky's eyes have opened. Both he and Squeaker are now able to kinda walk - although they keep falling over because their bellies are so big that I think it unbalances them. They honestly might be the fattest babies in all of Sudan. The guards seem to think they are amazingly big....So here are your last pics of the babies!
Stinky, eating (again) -- He totally takes after me!
So, goodbye sweet Pippy, Riley and Jinglebells....Goodbye sweet Stinky and Squeaker....Goodbye Smelly Pirate Whore Mommy Dog! I think I may miss you most of all!!
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
