Still Raining Outside

I'm getting more & more determined to go to Sharm at the end of August.

M might possibly come with me, but only if she can negotiate it with Mr M. I have made it perfectly clear to her that this is *not* a holiday for doing stuff. It's a holiday for lying around by the pool, and getting a tan.

There are *certain* things I would consider doing. If M does come along, then we might well do some dance work together, but only if there is decent air-con in the room. I will go to dance shows in the evening (ideally, there will be *some* Oriental available, though I suspect it will be mostly Folkloric). I will go to a hamman (I hope) for the Turkish Bath treatment and also normal Western-style pampering. I will go shopping- even in Sharm, which is nothing but a tourist haven, there are bound to be shoe shops and somewhere to buy a galabeya for my imaginary husband, who oddly enough is not much taller than me and has a big chest.

But I don't want to be pressurised into going diving, or visiting ancient ruins, or the desert, or anything. NO! Lounging by the Pool is the deal, the whole deal and nothing but the deal!

LOL!! here we are practically dancing in the streets, ok so I danced down my driveway to check the mail, because its raining.....well drizzling. All except the "OMG THE SKY IS FALLING" crowd who are convinced rain in Arizona is a sign of the end of days :P

You MUST GO for the sake of us all, even if it's just to report back and tell us how gorgeous and unbearably hot it is. I shall be green with envy but in a good way.

It's extra cold, foggy, and windy in my perpetually chilly coastal Pacific neck of the woods. Oh oh oh how I wish I were the 'M' you were talking about!

Oh HELL no. That was not a complaint, I promise! Just an excuse and a wish to go to Sharm with Béa! ;)

(O/T: I'm a little skeered of the weather in our locale next week...!)

HAH. You sure? My in-laws are all very nice. ;)

I'm skeered, too. It was 74 at the beach day before yesterday. Wanna go back! *sigh*

I LOLed at your imaginary husband. I do hope he won't be imaginarily offended.

Smiley might be back there by then. If so, I will put you in touch. Her husband is a dive instructor type, they will know some nice places to go.
