Wanted: a sweet family to adopt me

I'm looking for a new home.

If your family fulfills the following criteria please consider me for adoption:

1) Your family doesn't watch Al-Watan TV. Especially not Khalid Al-Abduljaleel and Taw Illail.

2) Your family has a wasta at the traffic department to get me a permit for my tinted car windows.

3) You do not have children between the ages of 0-16 living at home.

4) The food served is delicious.

5) Your laundry room is accessible. (I'd like to be able to do my own laundry.)

6) Your family doesn't discuss celebrity gossip around the dining table.

7) You have an endless supply of Arabic coffee.

8) People answer the phone when it rings.

9) You have highspeed wireless internet.

10) You promise to appreciate my humor.

Bonus points if you're house has a view.

I love my family. I'm not looking to replace them, I'm looking to--errr--supplement them. We're just not a good match (Part of being a Third Culture Kid, I guess.)
