    I’d say you’ve hit multiple nails on multiple heads, not the least of which is watching the stereotype of the “why should I pay attention” American come (sadly) true. I remind myself that many expats who are living very high on the haram hog in AD are people who would be living decidedly lower on the hog elsewhere…and that when these fancy-in-their-own-minds people are confronted with intelleckshuls like you (and me), they don’t really know what the hell to do with us (happens in non-expat life too, I’ve noticed). We don’t work in “real” stuff like oil, gas, finance, construction…so…um…better to just ignore us. We’re not so much worker bees as we are…rare birds.
    (PS: love the blog re-design!)

    Hi sweetie! I miss you. Wish you were “home” in Minnesota.
    Keep asking people about themselves, that is how the Midwest raised you to be. I love that you’ve seeing the movie star effect and calling it out, because for many of those people the fact that they are not treated like a movie star at home is a travesty. Keep on your side of the narcissism spectrum. It is much richer place to be.

    Hello Michele-Don’t know if you check these comments too regularly…but wanted to tell you that I’ve been thinking of you. I always appreciated your enthusiasm you exuded here at good old SHS…you have a special way of letting your light shine and sparkle even when the chips may be down, and that isn’t always easy to do!

    THANK YOU! I hope you are doing very, very well!!!! -Sarah G
