Where do you get to enjoy the holidays?

We’re splitting time between Ta-town and god’s country in the SEK.

Sweet!

My mom is from Independence, we might be cousins or something

Can I still take my kids there to throw a cat in monkey island? They need some “real America” cultural experiences.

Did you try any like bacon substitutes? Do they even exist?

For bacon, they almost always use “beef bacon” and it’s just pretty much just beef jerky. The fancier places will have Turkey bacon, which is better than “beef bacon”, but yeah not the same. I think it’s the fat content or something? You can’t get a good pepperoni pizza on this side of the world. But that said, there’s always pockets of Filipino restaurants that serve pork if you’re willing to go off the map a bit.

Welcome home.  Might be time to consider disclosing what Brent did  :Ugh:

Never. I would lose my leverage.

Also, my kids are very normal about hating shots and freaking the eff out. So when they asked why we got vaccines but we didn’t this spring, I told them it was because scientists were still working on “mosquito bite technology” to administer the kids’ shots with special needles designed like mosquito bites that are super sneaky and don’t hurt. I’ve been laying that groundwork for six months, and every time they get a mosquito bite now they’re like “wow that was a great idea, scientists!”

You don’t know if you still have the antibodies. You do know that the vaccine works and is safe. I was in quarantine for like 5 weeks while my entire family got covid. I got tested 7 times. Negative every time. I still got the vaccine as soon as I could, will get the booster as soon as I can, and will put my little girls in a full Nelson to make them get the vaccine once it’s approved for their age later this year.

Velvet Rope has really been catching on with the kids. #VelvetRope

Do you know what all of the coolest young kids are into?  #fireandice

LO&L. That’s soooo millennial. I mostly hang with zoomers, who love dropping velvet rope references in a computer voice. Im not surprised you’re not familiar with it, since it’s tiktok thing. Just enjoy your flaming hot Cheetos and kardashians, old timer  :lol: :lol:

Hey, BW. Hope it all turns out well. I just got through something similar with my wife and kids. She’s getting her smell and taste back now after about 2 weeks. I cook her foods with a little extra salt and spice, and it seems to help.  Kids just had mild cold symptoms. We feel pretty lucky.

Jordan is Iowa State. They’re so optimistic and a little prickly about their status even though they usually don’t accomplish anything, are funded by their regional partners, and the whole place inexplicably floods a few times a year.

West Virginia is Turkey, I guess. Because we’re not even really sure what you’re doing in our conference don’t you belong somewhere else? And how can you be so big but also so weird and dysfunctional and never quite getting your crap together?

Small but super wealthy due to mineral wealth is sort of most of the Gulf States besides Saudi, but we’ll say the UAE is Oklahoma State.

Iran is Baylor. They’re just successful/powerful enough to hang around (and have their own unique religious vibe despite being awful), but LOL everyone hates them and wants to kick them out and also they were the cause of the huge COVID outbreak in the region because they tried to cover it up. So yeah. That’s Middle Eastern Baylor.

Also, Saudi is Texas. I mean, you all already knew that.

1) Please compare Middle Eastern countries to Big XII teams past, present, and future. Which team is analagous to Jordan? Who is the Nebraska of the Middle East?
2) What's the school situation like for your Lil Cats (assuming some sort of American School for Diplomats Kids or something) and how does the Jordan school compare to the Egypt school?
3) Did you buy any Michael B. Jordan books to put in the book case or just Michael Jordan?
4) Best and weirdest foods specific to Jordan?
5) Where did you meet Bedouins? Were you wandering somewhere?
Okay. Big 12 comparisons. I’ll give it a lazy shot:

1. Egypt constantly refers to itself as “the Mother of the World” and always notes it’s “2,500 years of civilization” or whatever that number is. But it’s a rough ridin' mess and just awful. So, always bringing up the pyramids and still having “sellouts” (overcrowded cities) and also being just shy of a failed state...? Yeah that’s Nebraska. Egypt is definitely the Nebraska of the Middle East.

Current ambassador is career and would almost definitely laugh. The political counselor, however, is the State Department epitome of “Yale, Male, and Pale” and would be appalled (it was his office I did it to).

How insanely pissed would Jordanians get if someone pooped on Petra? Like probably kick you out of the country?

Also do Jordanians view Lebanese as the slippery businessmen of the region or do the Palestinians take this place for them?
Forget the o answer the Petra question.

You don’t eff with Petra. That’s a red line. Netflix almost got banned because there was a historical fiction movie about how some bedouins discovered an ancient artifact that proved the ancient Israelite had actually built Petra AND THERE WERE LARGE ACTUAL PHYSICAL PROTESTS IN THE STREETS (I’m still not sure what the point of these was, but ministers were issuing statement assuring they wouldn’t allow the Zionist plot to steal Petra to succeed and yes that’s a real thing that happened in real life)

So yeah. Don’t eff with Petra.

have you ever met a jordan from jordan?
Ok guys. I’m gonna tell you this in strict secrecy.

I used to work in a very uppity fancy office at the embassy. This office had a “foyer” at the entrance to it, and it was filled with two bookcases of fancy academic books about Jordan (in both languages) that of course no one actually ever read.

Soooooo......

In the weeks before I left, I ordered every cheap book I could find on Amazon about Michael Jordan. Kids books. Biographies. Adult coloring books of shoes. Even some in Arabic (they are NOT spelled the same at all in Arabic). And before I left, I slipped about a dozen of these into the “library”. That was over 6 months ago. No one has noticed and the MJ books are all still there.
