    Cat's Christmas Carol

    **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** ****

    So what if it’s not snowing, so what if it’s still hot
    And there is no Santa and I don’t know what not,
    I still insist it’s Christmas, and I demand my tree
    I’ll hang the pretty baubles on it for all to see

    For I am now in Doha, and Doha’s in Qatar
    It doesn’t snow here, or hasn’t so far…
    But really who cares? And there’s no cause for tears
    The guys all look like Santas with their white thobs and beards

    And all the sand around, it really looks like snow
    But if you’re not in Doha I guess you’ll never know
    That 4x4 Landcruiser can be a sleigh in need…
    If Santa’s in a hurry, he simply flies in it!

      hahaha! Too cute. Nice spin on Christmas in the desert babe. :)

      Plus... I was just thinking the same last night when I saw a man in white dishdash with a red and white checkered ghitrab and long beard. The Arab version of Santa! lol

      Thanks thanks :^)

      That was written in about 10 minutes time, after watching the traffic outside for a while, hehe.

      I didn't find a nice pic to go with it, so suggestions welcome!

      I think Xmas is so fashion!!!

      btw, I saw santa today.. he was coming outta the masjid after prayers.

      I'm not sure it was him though, cuz i was driving.. so no one quote me or anything. thanks.

      Yeah I was almost killed by a flying Santa in a 4x4 today. Not the best experience. So if he is now in Oman (quoting Kaza), I can sigh with relief.

      Hey Princess :^) I love Xmas in Qatar! The carol was addressed at break neck drivers who I don't particularly enjoy driving alongside with.

      And thanks! I intend to have a very merry Xmas! =^..^=

      Just could not believe my eyes, when I opened your profile & read: Zemfira, Kino... :)

      Funny poem, really I started with it, but then I saw those magic words :)

      Happy Holidays, Qatar Cat!

    • At 25/12/2005, 23:45, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Thanks everyone!
      @ Life - yeah I can imagine, seen all those postcards from Oz and NZ, with Santas surfing! have a blast!

      @McA - please tell me the name - I'd love that! :^)

      @Warda - well, nothing compares to the mountain goat, but still a wonderful effort! Although it's not fish, it's lamb, turkey and wine! :^)

      @Sheela & Degoat - thanks guys! Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to you too!

      @Northern Colour - wow, I like Splin too! But not all of it. I think Zemfira rocks! Got her on my iPod now and I am addicted!


    • At 26/12/2005, 08:01, Blogger Wardat_il'7leej said…

    • At 26/12/2005, 09:59, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Halarious ... this pic would go well with the Christmas poem.

      "Got headache from too much Whiskas!" Try "Baileys" next year ... no headaches ;)
