Unwinding in style

I don't know if I'm coming or going these days. The hours seem to zip past one another like the trucks on the Doha highway. Whenever I make a momentary glance at the clock, there is always shock and awe... 'Wait a minute, is it already noon' or 'Hey, is it bed time already?'

When they talk about daylight saving time, do they also mean they are saving it for another day? Perhaps that's only if you're 007.

I guess I shouldn't complain. I should be grateful that I don't have to spend my time on a bankrupt airline or mind numbing scam debates. At least I can make the time to do the things I like to do,  some of the time.

I found myself at a wonderfully luxurious spa this afternoon. I opted for a de-stress massage. Call it hallucination, but the massage seemed to have my name on it. It was almost beckoning me to come and unwind.

Five minutes in to the massage and my massuese informed me that my neck and shoulder muscles are too tense. Duh! She reccomended a visit once in three weeks at the very least. Now in a perfect world, I would surely fly off to get a massage every three weeks. But since I don't have a magic carpet or a corporate discount, we will let that one slide.

The skeptic in me likes to believe that the staff tries to get everyone to revisit on some pretext or the other. Only someone with all the time in the world can opt for weekly massages. For me, one in about six or twelve months is a heaven sent. I enjoy the exotic smells, the fresh towels, the resignation to the Gods of bliss. 

So me and my stiff neck will be back but not in a hurry. We are too busy trying to save the day.


  1. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

    Look into my blog post ... enquiry
