Naief and I went on a play date Thursday afternoon. It's the first time, since learning to walk, that Naief has been to Buzzi Beez (i think that's how it's spelled).... anyway...
We got there around 12, which, depending on how you look at it, can be the worst time to go or the best time to go. There were only two other families there. One husband and wife and their little girl and a housemaid w/ two children. Naief and I played for a good while... going from room to room. I think his favorite had to be the soft play area and the Lego area... he loved sitting at the small tables while trying to fit those little Lego pieces together! :)
One thing I noticed while we were playing was the music in the background. They had the songs w/ lyrics to all the little tunes that play on Naief's musical toys. I was overjoyed... really. I can remember half the words to songs and sometimes can only remember choruses, while I can't remember the lyrics to others.... so... off I go to the front desk to ask about this CD.
I told the girl that I really liked the CD and did they sell it... her answer to me was a straight, "no". Then I inquired as to the name of the CD so that I could order online. She promptly spoke to another Filipino girl there and I was told that per the manager they aren't allowed to give out that information.
I'm like, "what?!!". ..... "why?"
Her response to me was that they weren't allowed.
It totally miffed me. Why in the world would they not give out the freakin name to the CD? Do they think I'm gonna run off and build myself a play house for all the children of Bahrain to come and have singalongs? Are they afraid that I might spread the word that I have the CD and no one will want to go to Buzzi Beez??? Knowing that that's why everyone goes there - the music...
For goodness sake... they don't own the license to this music, why in the hell do they think they can tell someone 'no' when asked about the name of a CD?!!!
Really... I went down the hall afterwards, saw the CD case playing the songs and almost opened it up to get the name.... I would have if it wasn't the kind of CD player that shuts off when it's opened... or I would have if I didn't fear being kicked out and maybe my pass for coming being revoked permanently (ok, maybe that's a bit much... but crap, you'd think that this CD was an uber sensitive CD that only certain ppl was privy to seeing!!). It's not fair. I'm pissed.
I told Hashim. He told me that we'll go and he'll get the name for me.... :) So... let's see if it works.
I WANT THE NAME OF THIS CD!!!!!
I looked on the net to see if I could find something and didn't come up w/ the results that I was hoping for. If we don't get the name, I'll have to come up w/ some other solution.
