Ha ha, now after hitting the post button I remember what else contributed to today's "gray" score. I went to the tape store after tutoring my prince.
I had intended to buy Ahmad Al Mansoori's new tape and found there were other new tapes as well. - new tapes that managed to escape my knowledge. One of the tapes had a new Al Safi song on it...
Needless to say I let out dhs. 100 ($27) on tapes and CDs. It actually all totalled dhs. 110 but the guy let me off on the 10 when I said I had to go to the car and get the 10 cuz I had only brought out a hundred (even I didn't imagine I'd spend more than that!)
So yeah today definitely earned its Gray.
