Undramatically Unpleasant

So soon, I know. How unlike me.
It's been One of Those Days.
Not particularly pleasant nor excessively horrible. I'd love to complain about it, but you'd all be highly disappointed at the lack of drama involved.
Not dissimilar to a small bowl of undercooked custard.
Mundane unpleasant days have no use at all it seems.

Keeping in the spirit of the day, I'll talk less and do more:

1. Sometimes, you have no choice but to judge a book by its cover.

2. Contrary to popular (read: waiter) belief, the shape of a Charlotte au Fraises does affect its taste.

3. Saudi Arabia is Dubai without the vague possibility of fleeting fun.

4. A crappy car is far better than no car at all.

5. More often than not, Cough will choose to invite good friend Fever to come visit too.

6. Misunderstanding breeds misunderstanding which breeds awkwardness.

7. Wishes sometimes arrive too late, and by then, they are out of season.

8. When receiving an email in error from an important exec, it is wholly unexciting unless the content is salacious and scandalous.

9. When a camera goes missing, it is always socially easier to insinuate that it disappeared into thin air than that it had been secretly pocketed.

10. Taking photographs without the flash is much more flattering.

11. Lobster one night and sea bass the next leaves one feeling gastronomically spoilt.

12. Candylicious is just as impressive as the aquarium facing it, if not more. (If you are not in Dubai, this will be completely lost on you. If so, let them eat cake will replace this learning with another so as not to feel cheated.)
