Fajitas - not so traditional

Last night was Eid-ul-Fitr, the festival commemorating the end of Ramadan. You know what this means, right? The gellato shop down the street will finally be open during the day. Rejoice! Most restaurants and other food places are closed during the day for Ramadan because everyone is fasting. Although someone told me the other day that she walked into a cafe that had newspapers up on the windows and found about 50 men inside eating and smoking. Rebels.
We celebrated last night with a few Embassy families by eating a not-quite-so-traditional meal of fajitas and roasted pork.

In other entirely unrelated news I am finally getting around to showing you the lastest felty creation. Remember how Hannah commissioned a Gandalf Macbook cover for a friend? She commissioned one for herself as well.

Rad.
I miss the World's Largest Felt Collection but I'm glad the the last one I did before leaving (she picked it up literally minutes before I walked out the door.) was such an awesome one. Thanks for having the vision, Hannah!

Rad is right. Amazing. I'm thinking of what I'd like to commission when you get back. I have a netbook that could use a cute cover. I just need to narrow down who to have you put on it.

Spock is awesome! Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. Are you my daughter???? Oh yes, you are LaRue's granddaughter. That explains it. Enough said.

Ummmm. That is totally awesome. Can I have one commissioned for my little Padawan Netbook. I'm thinking Princess Leia.
