LOL and OMG and I can’t believe I’m not there

23 Jul

If the mister had not had the idea to move to the UAE then this blog post would not exist. And if the internet did not exist then I bet you would never have seen what you are about to see.

But we did move to the UAE and there is an internet, and so, I am able to bring you, more or less live from the Date Festival, this gi-normous date:

From miscblogphotos

update: the mister apologises that he cannot provide photos from inside the date, but the date is only open in the evenings, and he is there in the afternoon. He has tasted prize-winning dates, date cake and coffee and reports they are all delicious.

(I agree, it is a bit undergraduate here at the moment, come back tomorrow and we will be our normal sophisticated selves)

    I must admit that I googled the date festival post haste.
    Undergraduate indeed.

    Heh heh heh. That is indeed a very large date.

    (Sorry to go all Beavis and Butthead).

    Date jokes aside, at first glance I thought it was a double-ended boobie!

    Was it your date night?

    I can’t say I understand a word of this.

      yes, this might be Australian-specific

    why did I immediately think of Roy & HG ?

    Thank you for your enlightening report.

      my pleasure…and yes I was thinking only of Roy and HG. I tried to find something on youtube to help enlighten the coffee lady, but couldn’t find anything.

    It is indeed Aus specific, but bloody funny nonetheless. I’m sorry you’re missing it, but not sorry you’re not there (if you get my drift)…
