Alice in Jeddah-land

February 20, 2011

In no way whatsoever, am I trying to be rude or disrespectful. If I could take a picture, I would- but obviously I can’t so you get to read about it.

My Saturday morning was as typical as it gets, I was well-rested, energized with not much to do as per usual during the weekend, so it was quite normal.

What I’m trying to say is, I wasn’t seeing things because I really had to spend an hour and a half today with a lady who was a cross between Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

Yes, I liked the movie and adored the book as a child. I was not hallucinating, I am not on any medication, and I am rather healthy hamdila.

Do you know how you meet people who look like birds, turtles, fish or Tim Burton characters in this case. The challenge for me was, I didn’t know where to quite place her. Mad Hatter or Red Queen?

Point is, I think Tim Burton gets his inspiration from real people. Bless him.
