The Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia


There might be an opportunity to work in KSA next year to help make their government more creative! That's quite some project.

I just watched the Kingdom with Jamie Foxx and all i'll say is - BLIMEY! IT'S A BIT BLOOMING DANGEROUS OUT THERE.

As an incentive work are offering us a 50% increase in pay and all our income would be tax free. Hmmmm tempting tempting. Operation Night Brace could be completed in the blink of an eye and we'd end up with a nice deposit for a house.

I mentioned it to Amy and she was not happy.

I mentioned it to Mum and she was not happy.

Amy was worried that i wanted to run away from her and find someone else (without debt).

Mum was worried that i'd get blown up.

I think it would be a bit like 'Deadliest Catch' if you have ever watched that show. A big chunk of time doing something potentially dangerous for a massive cash incentive.

If i did it then Amy and I would end up apart for almost as long as we have been together and i don't think many relationships could survive that.

It was an interesting thought for a few days but ultimately not worth the sacrifices that would have to be made. But if the pay increase was 100% who knows?!?!?!?!?! ;)

what sacrifices? you have to give up drink, live under a totalitarian monarchy and count the coin... you'd be MAD not to...

And KSA is hardly dangerous...

Dear gareth,
Just think about that junior school teacher who was imprisoned in the Sudan for allowing a boy in her class to name the class teddy bear Mohammed.
You are capable of causing far greater offence without even knowing it.
Amy's right!! Inshahalla!!
