New Claim to Fame

I am pleased to announce a new claim to fame: this site has been banned in Abu Dhabi.

My husband has just returned home from working in the UAE for the better part of the last two months.  Everything there is censored–TV shows, movies (which are shown with subtitles in Arabic), and websites.  So when Steve went to check in on what I’d been doing in his absence (it was all innocent, I promise), imagine his surprise when he was denied access.

I can’t even begin to imagine what I’ve written that would scare the UAE censors, but I guess I’ll consider it a badge of honor.
