It’s National Day on Sunday and the city ablaze with celebratory lights, streamers, and of course, decorated cars. We’ll go walking on the Corniche on Sunday to watch the festivities, spray silly string, and watch the jets fly in formation with colored smoke creating vaporous UAE images in the sky.

Today, however, I got a personal message from the Crown Prince whoops, from the ruler of Dubai {thanks Matty} wishing me a happy National Day.

Well,I guess the message is personal in the same way I got all those BFF messages from Beyonce and Jay-Z during the Presidential campaign. You know, they never returned my calls? Sheesh.

So. Happy National Day to all, from me and hizzoner.
