A few minutes ago, I answered a Tweet on TweetDeck sent by an American expatriate in Dubai regarding Skype CSV – FSV transfer. While I was sending it, in the News column I have on TweetDeck, a flash popped up about a building collapsing in Dubai.
Before the Gulf War it can honestly be said I never heard of Dubai. I was still stuck on the Ottoman Empire and Lawrence of Arabia. Now here I am communication with someone there while almost simultaneously reading relatively local news about her home country.
While this is fascinating, in truth the laundry isn’t getting done, I haven’t finished a conversation with my family about a new car and it is past noon an I haven’t had a meal yet.
Granted, it is Sunday.
On a normal day, I would now be at work doing this or, more importantly, that. Still, shouldn’t Sunday’s be a day to chill from the cloud? Perhaps but it won’t happen here any time soon!
