Ya3ni the month starts with Wonderora’s Birthday along with labor day….ya3ni agaza…there is a point I love you girl 😉

On the 10th ba2a…we find eno it is 7adouta’s Birthday kaman… “catch dragons in their dens..tell tales..sunshine…flowers “ See…here is the spirit am talking about.

At the end of the month….comes the twins birthday “Nesrina-my sis & Nermeena-moi” on the 28th….well,…it is the end of the month…when everybody is broke…that’s not fair.

*Uncyclopedia thing

Three Things That Are Named After May:

May Parker: Spiderman‘s old aunt, the widow of his Uncle Ben, who was murdered in his first story to teach his nephew that “With great power comes great responsibility”. Nobody bothered to ask Uncle Ben what he thought of this, until Fred Hembeck was commissioned by Jim Shooter’s evil twin to destroy the Marvel Universe. Ben Parker’s ghost convinced him to stop, and he seemed quite resigned to having been dead since before the Marvel Universe properly got started.

Possibly: A synonym for “perhaps” or “will never“. As in “I may get round to the second thing on my to-do list today“.

“The May”: A crazy man in Nashville, TN. Known for spontaneous and reckless acts. Also an excellent instigator and bad influence. Once traveled to Denver, CO., for a date.

Happy Birthday ladies….enjoy your month…and keep up this special spirit..

Bits and Pieces

– M called to check on me…and asked if I would like to join them “him and his friends” in a trip to Ain El Sukhna…fa I thought since I don’t have plans…fa cool I am in…fa he said eno he is gonna arrange with the rest and call back to give me details…w keda.
15 minutes later he called back…and he is like khalas will meet tomorrow @ 10 and will..at this point I interrupted him…and said u know. what..am not going…he was like mute for a few secs…then continued…why?? a few minutes ago…u were like…so enthusiastic..but now!!!! started saying things like…I wana cool off…and take some rest…kaman am not ready to meet new people and stuff…he said eno…he was going to spend the night…bas 3ashan he wants me to go w keda…fa he is gonna go for one day…and drive me back at night…plus eno the people are so cool…blablabla…to be so honest…I didn’t expect him to answer in such a calm way “well he is usually calm..but he would lose his tempers sometimes” for 2 things I do in particular.
a) being so moody “wich is something I can never control..give me a break…am a gemini”
b) turning the cell off for long and for no reason…”I like this one, never tried it with him though..it is that we were once talking about something..and I told him that I turned off my cell for a day or so..and raya7t demaghi…fa he was like..never ever do this with me”
Anywayz….back to the story…fa khalas…we are done…and I sent him a thank you for the invitation “sms”. Been a long time with him not around…

– Few days ago went out shopping with mom @ the stars complex….fa we are done with our shopping spree…and it is time to go home…and since there is nothing to eat at home…fa we ordered some food to go before leaving…anywayz…we put out our order…and went to check one last shop before we go until our food is ready…done with that one last shop…with one last dress…and yes..I said dress :D…shocker!! fa I went up to get our food…and in my way down to mom…I saw “A”…with someone…God only knows if she is his wife, finace “don’t think she is either one..3ashan they were not holding hands…da on the assumption that they are newly weds or engaged…which is like 10% possible..as I tried to see if they have rings or bands in their hands..but I didn’t see any…or maybe the pilattes exercises I practiced on the escalator inorder to find out if they are formally committed or not were not that good..well…were good enough to make the guy behind me laugh. I do a lot of effort just to make a fool of myself..don’t I??

Anywayz…it was good seeing him…I thought of saying hi and stuff…but Egyptian guys don’t usually like being stuck in such situations!!! don’t know why?? I mean…if you were that close “see my fingers?” from the “they lived happily everafter” phase..but it didn’t work out…what’s wrong if you ran into ur ex..somewhere…anywhow….this is not the point…fa I left w khalas.
For me being the person I am….stupid or dumb if i may say…I decided to SMS him today…and that is what I said exactly…”saw u the other day @ the stars complex…but thought it might be inconvenient to stop and say hi…was really nice seeing u though :D”…and what was his reply “……..” nothing…literally nothing.
I mean…a simple hi won’t hurt…for people who shared nice memories “well…not really…there were ugly…real ugly ones”…but even if…we are over with long time ago…and he was the bad guy…he used to blame himself for that…and I was like “don’t”…it is as simple as we are not for each other. I suffered a lot after this whole thing back then….but now I am left out with the memory of him rushing into my office like a tornado confessing that he loves me…I owe him for the most romantic moment in my life. It was simple, honest, sincere, and so from his heart. Now…now what?? I am speechles…

Am not used to keep things inside me..I am happy when I am happy…and I go out and tell the world…I am not happy…I vent, cry, mellow…I go through the same routine.”I get it out”..I tell people I love them, I miss them, I hate them…am like neutral and they are not of any difference to me. I understand people are not into blunt, candid people…and tend to be attracted to vague ones…but why is it so complicated….why is it always like queens of darkness get the crown…and straight forward fairies…help tucking the veil under the crown!!!

– PS:to the writer of the deleted comment
This blog is of a very personal nature, which means that I blog my life in here…just to get things out of my system…so u being entertained or not…is not my issue!!! one more thing…you don’t read people if you want something funny….people are much more valuable than being hillarious.

Updates:
it is midnight…and I couldn’t get myself to sleep..

– Gotta admit that going to work in such circumstances “bombings and stuff” freaks me out…we at work used to make fun of such things..it is not the first time..I know..we’ve been through this before….but….I am scared.

Quest

When I’m stuck with a day that’s gray and lonely
I stick out my chin and grin and say
The sun’ll come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on ’til tomorrow, come what may
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you, tomorrow
You’re always a day away
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you, tomorrow

No doubt I love you…I really do….but why??? is my question…do I love you coz you will probably fill me up with memories, experiences, hopes, thoughts, and ideas..or do I love you coz you are a (-1) day to go!!!!!!

What a day!!!

So…the day started with a heads-up e-mail about this…..couldn’t believe it…I mean…to that extent!!! with the photos and coverage..was like speechless and tearful…for what I saw and read was dreadful. Not only that but to make the day… some idiots decided to enhance the Egyptian spring and liberation festivities and gave an extraordinary fireworks demo. Way to go!!!

Why is it socially odd for a single girl to hang out just on her own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! here is the thing…a couple of days off …we were supposed to camp @ Ras Mohamed, but the trip was cancelled…and the other option was Siwa…and I really was in need for a beach vacation…so ended up staying here…today we had a family day…but by 6pm we were done…didn’t want to spend the evening home…wanted to do something…but with everyone not willing to do anything..fa khalas…I decided to go out to the movies…and enjoy a nice movie night….

Arrived @ the stars complex…with the intent to watch paradise now but didn’t find a single ticket…so I ended up watching the pink panther…and here:
First…the lady who was selling Paradise now tickets…gave me a look keda for asking for only one ticket…and she was like…one ticket??? da lmeen ya3ni…fa I was like…leya…if you can find me one…that would be great…fa she is like…are you on your own?? fa I said yes…she was like looking behind me to check if someone is hiding or so I think…fa said la2..khelset. O-K-k

Second…I am standing infront of the tickets girl “pink panther”…and am like 1 ticket for the pink panther please…she is gazing at me for like 30 seconds…and am like “u heard me?”…fa she is yes…one!!!! fa I cheerfuly confirmed… yes please….ma 3alena
I took the ticket…and decided to get myself some pop-corn…and watch the trailers for new movies…I don’t usually like to do that…but since I have nothing to do…fa why not ya3ni…

Treated myself to some freshly made pop corn….the guy who escorted me to the seat…asked if I want to leave a ticket at the gate for whoever is late ya3ni wala 7aga….fa I said no thanks…I am not waiting for anybody…the guy stumbled and was about to smash his face…mesh moshkela.

Watching the movie…it is nothing big…but I like Steve Martin…and the movie is like flat..but funny…fa I was laughing and keda…during the break decided to go get myself a bottle of water…after I got back the girl sitting next to me….murmered something keda…that I didn’t get at the begining…then I figured out eno she is asking “if am ok or not??” fa I said”yeah”…why?..fa she said eno I am sitting alone laughing w keda…fa she assumed…eno I broke up with my guy..and I went to movies alone…to get away from my mother’s or family questions…or interrogations!!! LOOOL…I mean…come on the girl developed a very clever scenario..fa I told her…NO…but ur story sounded interesting though….I mean i can use it someother time…I told her I just simply came to spend a nice evening out since am off…PERIOD.

A day to remember

Watching every motion
In my foolish lover’s game
On this endless ocean
Finally lovers know no shame

OMG…I swear..it feels like as if I just came out of “TOP GUN” the movie or something….I don’t know..this was awesome…awesome…awesome….just in case if this post sounded incoherent…forget about it and don’t try to get something out of it…as I am so freakingly massively excited and energized.

Ok…I think…I would better go fix a cup of “something” and come back..

Deep breath…now I gotta concentrate…and write this post porperly for the records…it won’t happen again in my lifetime..I guess!!

The day started good…but kinda boring…everyone is off…and am office alone again…it is not that I don’t like it…I do…but was more into a frenzied mood…but it is ok…finished my part of the presentation…attended a “a so they say was cancelled” staff meeting…but someone didn’t want to miss one of his “leading days”…so….let’s throw him a blablabla Fiesta!!

After that, the PM called and asked if I have my BP…and I said y-e-a-h…he didn’t like my “yeah tone” and asked how exactly how it could be interpreted?? fa I said something like…I have it but it is expired!! he said as a PM he wouldn’t have loved to hear that from an outstanding performer…fa I said eno I can figure that out easily..that’s why my tone came out a bit unceratin…as I was thinking…weather I go like No..or yes. “he was in a good casual mood…kinda away from the normal formalities and stuff”. I continued telling him… eno I said yes…as I know lots of guys at the different bases…fa I know how to cover my entrance…”the guy laughed loudly”…and asked me if I am willing to join one to the auditors in a floor-check to one of Bases…and HE will cover my entrance…I nodded positively. “in the way back to his office…he reminded me that I really don’t have to rely on my charms in such issues…as it sometimes doesn’t work :D”..

So, we are there…the lady is doing her audit…I started messing around…greeted the commander and some of the guys…’BORED” was kinda.. bolded, underlined and blinking on my forehead…so it really didn’t take them so much time to figure that out!!!
So they offered me something…actually is was sort of a deal….I found it incredibly hard to believe….I first thought they are playing me…then I found out eno they are not…and they are hell serious…I started to talk all this crap about chickening out and stuff…but one of the guys..said “listen…what we are offering you is a lifetime experience…take it or leave it…but u’d better take it…it is a glorious moment that you gotta cease”.

Oh well, I am up there..I DID IT…..I can’t give more details “as it is part of our deal”…but
Turning and returning
To some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion
As you turn my way and say
Take my breath away

Now..I am back to the office..drowsy and Nauseous..didn’t throw up yet…but it is gonna happen “I finished a cheetos bag and 2 easter bunnies before we leave the bldg this morning”…but who cares 😀

P.S: I don’t eat bunnies…these are mega yummy chocolate truffle center filled bunnies…still have six to go…:PPPP

This morning….and afternoon “updates” ;-)

In the morning:

Since I am in bad need for money “and yes I know it is still April 18th”…fa I decided to go withdraw some cash from the bank before I go to work…and since I realized that my ATM card is expired fa I have to go a spend some time there “3ashan ana fadya”…then go to work an hour or so late.

ye2olak…if you are gonna go to the bank before work…then you really don’t have to set your alarm sometime like 6a.m…and in case you set your alarm 3ala 6…turn it off…and sleep an extra hour…bas I kept myself in bed bel3afya till like 6:45…

8:00 am in front of the bank…and there are like 20 people waiting at the gate…fa am like!! don’t they open at 8??? fa a nice lady said no 8:30…”handed me a paper and pencil” then said werite ur name and # 3ashan takhdy dorek. Fa I did…and since there was like half an hour fa I strolled around shwaya…till it was like 8:20..then back to the gate…there..found the bank dude who started to give out #s and stuff…had mine and walked away…since the door is closed anywayz..fa what’s the point in being squeezed between angry people…seriously..people looked so grumpy..although it was real early for such a mood…I mean…u might find 2 or 3 people who woke up on the other side of the bed…bas no…apparently…they all rolled off their beds…anyways…a couple of minutes keda…then a lady quarrel started..over eih ba2a…1 or 3…yes…one is saying that she is here first and she thought that since she wants to see a CS representative…fa no need for #s…and the other said something like…eno…mesh moshkelti..”ento magetoosh benok abl keda”!! fa it was really stupid…fa I tried to calm the elder lady…and told her…eno there are 4 counters..and the four of them work at the same time…fa 1 or 3 it won’t make any difference…she is gonna step in at the very beggining..she liked the idea “I think”…and then finally they opened the gates, got the money, and shoot off to work.
Moral of the story: The guy who invented the ATM is a sweet pie…and the idiot who forgot to renew her card must get it renewed….in her lifetime.

Yesterday…I submitted a leave slip for an hour and half…fa I reached Maadi around 9:15…and the rule goes like…buddy…you are not expected to show up in the office 15 minutes early!!! Fa I stopped by the baker…and treated myself to a choco-doughnut…and a coffee…then hit the bldg. back.

So…we are in the office….W “a custodian is cleaning the office”….now she started to open the window…M turned on the AC…
W: Have you seen this??
M: what??
W: The AC operates when you open the window.
M: begad, warini keda
W: “turned her back to M..to close the window”…he turned off the AC
W: Shofto…
R…didn’t notice that M is using his Remote Control…and believed that the AC is somehow connected to the window “LOL…for the record..R is working in her MBA”
R: eih da…let’s call the bldg&equip maint dept?? da mass…
W: da el gehaz keda yenfeger
Nerro – laughing hillariously to an extent that R thought am very irresponible and inconsiderate.
M: la2…besor3a…we might conisder evacuating the office.
R: “in the phone” H…we need help…”and told him the story…apparently he asked her to try it again”
R: bas momken atkahrab “at this point…i was like under the desk laughing…it was hillarious”
M: don’t be afraid…it won’t…bas you know…the wires are all connected..there is nothing wrong…it happens ya3ni..
R – started to move the window back and forth…and M is turning the AC on on off with his RC.
Here W was freaked out big time…and was between the two thoughts…either el AC 3aleh 3afreet…aw eno hayenfeger…fa she liked the idea of calling for help to get away with her life 😀
Nerro: trying to hold up shwaya….and decided to tell Rasha that…she is being played…and I am really shocked…as I always thought she is a hell of a smart ass.

I don’t know if you guyz are as curious as myself…bas am really interested to know who is reading my blog…of course…I know some people for sure coz we are friends, and some others come from side bar links and stuff…but there are some direct hits from Egypt and different countries…that I would like to know who are they :D…would be nice if you guyz dropped a line to suffice my high sense of curiousity…it is a Gemini thing…hane3mel eih??

Baby, in the afternoon 🙂
Last week Moon offered taking me to the Ceramic Café, or let me put it this way…I knew where it is but since she offered taking me…fa I thought why not meet up and get to know her…fa we met after work…..it was like a bloggers get together “3aldaya2 keda” Moon, Rain, Nesrina, and myself ……it was really nice….like when people are so spontaneous and themselves keda…Moon also showed us “the mug she painted”…wanted to paint one…bas was so exhausted to an unbelievable extent…so I said I need to come have breakfast here in the weekend and play shwaya ana kaman..Girls…I really enjoyed the outing…and I am glad I got to know you for real :))
P.S: the cafe is Real Good…

Here and there…..

– Hallelujah…The government is like giving out a Carte blanche for murderers and killers, sweet!!! Isn’t it remarkable, the new generation of criminals has super-alien-powers, that they do everything so brutally and perfectly in like …no time “snap here”…not only that…but they turn out to be loonies and get away with it effortlessly….see where am going here??
on the hypothesis that anyone bought such stories…then his/her brains “bekh”…and since these are the government Officially acknowledged stories…and they are based on the assumption that our brains are totally gone!!! therefore…..????
Apparently….the big guys have noticed the increasing # of stressed out Egyptians…and wanted them just to let it all out…oh…I am touched!!!

– It was interesting when I saw a message in an e-group message board… that the writer psed her message…. with please don’t “dear” or “darling” me in ur replies…as they really don’t know each other or something like this. Honestly, I found that hard to comprehend…maybe from her standpoint she found it rude that people are kinda “crossing” her borders…or maybe she was addressing one person in particular…If we assumed that cuddling/pampering words would offend others..then am a hell of nasty person..I really can’t imagine what would have happened to me if I replied to her…kont hatbahdel!! as I don’t limit my words to dear and darling…I go like…sweets, honey, 7abibti…etc…I don’t know…never thought that might offend people at any level!!! ehhhh…human nature…

– So..we are talking Greek mythology, I love it by the way…it is very stimulating for a daydreamer like myself…so guys were talking “hottest chicks” “sounds erotic..but it wasn’t :D” …then came a question…if you were to choose…would you like to be a nymph or a go goddess?!!! that was a tough one..I mean…being a Goddess is cool ..it is like she has everything without doing that much effort…but then..I realized eno being me…that sounds a bit boring.
Fa I went for a nymph..after all they sound much energetic and vivid….simply they are super cute female creatures…”divinities of lower rank”…but usually nice and have an important role to play, ya3ni they were valued as the protectors of springs, mountains, trees, the sea and rivers, etc…. Immortality is not their issue…coz unlike goddesses…they were fated to die…

On their BIG victories and my Small ones

Cheered…laughed…cursed…and..cried…just to add some taste and odor to your flavorless victories… Voluntarily…can’t deny…now… your victories had some shape… cheerers and audience everywhere…plus or minus one…who the heck cares.

When it is my turn…you came running behind the curtains, blocked the view, impressed my audience with 20 consecutive somersaults…Happy now?!! Hope you are…”that’s just pathetic” said koko the parrot … “you forgot that her small victories adds up to your BIG ones”.

Like a ghost
I follow your steps so true
You don’t have to bribe me or fill me up
Give me a minute to shine with you
I will make you so happy, make you laugh

I’m never gonna say I’m sorry for the essence of my soul
There’s so many ways to change my life
‘Cause I want to…oh
I’m like a clown, I am fun for everyone…

Funday…not really…but sorta ;-)

– I came to find that boss is bekh…already gone…he is in a sort of …mm…am trying to think..what is it…it is coming..yep..emergency leave..yeah..right 😀 I went blank for a sec.

Kaman my 2 beloved “wink” workmates are off…no..they are not…they are “mezawagheen”…”en ghab el boss…” it is not that I don’t skip work w keda…I do…bas I do it bluntly and when the boss is here…as in last Sunday…I didn’t feel like coming to work and screwing up a loooooooong weekend…fa I called and I said eno am not feeling well and stuff…my intuition is he didn’t buy it…”who would ya3ni :)”….bas cool ya3ni…he pretended that he did. How sweet!!

So back to my funday….yeah..it is fun coz am office alone “as in home alone”….listening to loud music….invited colleagues and friends to have breakfast over “btw..Joy is baking upstairs…and will be here shortly” …still….have 2 proposals to finish and submit before the end of this week fa….gotta find sometime to work. Eih………..it is a hard life 😉

– What are pickled onions for:
Most people including my mom thought they are to be eaten only…but that’s not the case with me….since I am trying to learn more and more about photography…so I thought my favouirte pickles would be a good training object.
And my training when…10 or 15 minutes after I woke up…mom was preparing tea and breakfast, and I was around…fa the new sealed pickled onions jar looked so tempting:

Me “trying to open the jar”: Mom…would you open this for me!!!
Mom”awfully astonished”: basal 3al sob7 keda ya Noori??????????!! sweety…it is all yours…we don’t like it…bas don’t eat it delwa2ti…estani bas 7atta lama teshrabi el shay belaban.
Me: I am not gonna eat….you will see bas..open it for me
Mom opened the sealed jar, while I vanished for a few secs.
Mom “tani awfully astonished x2”: Eih da??? what are you doing with your camera !
Me “holding a spoon and chasing one big full multi-layered basalaya: am taking photos
Mom “paused”
Me “taking photos”: eih…do you think am totally nuts??
Mom: well, I always thought you have rob3 dareb…but my shocker is that am positive that the rest talaterba3 is gone now.
After thanking Ms. full vivid multi-layered basalaya….I ate it…you didn’t think I would throw it!!!

-Don’t know what’s with the Belly-dancing hype…I came to find an invitation to a get together thing during the next weekend… with a baladi theme….and the recreation team stated that there would be belly-dancers and stuff..original costumes contest blablabla. fa I called to check…and found out it is a “bona2an 3ala talab el gamahir” type of thing 😀 “only the belly-dancers”…fa they developed the idea…and came up with the baladi theme party!!! w 3agaby.

Here is my basala…it is not the result I wanted…but will keep trying…and show you the final results 😀 Loool…

During the weekend

– I woke up early..not only early..but so damn early…I was really grrrrrrrrring at myself…it is like come on…sleep shwaya you idiot…who on earth would wake up 6ish during the weekend…after all…you would regret it during during the work week…as I really have to wake up @6..hey…hey..just on my defense…Friday morning…I was hell good and convinced myself to sleep one more hour…I rock!!!

-Thursday night…mmm..no… Friday morning..ok..a little before morning..well…while I was sleeping ya3ni…had this feeling…u know when you feel excited about something that is gonna happen next day…but since you are sleeping…you can’t really figure out what is it that you are so excited about….I had this feeling all night…so when I woke up…I was like…eih ba??

Mr. President made our day

Of course, he did…10 people “including myself” had their first letter of reprimand this morning for being 40 minutes late. 3ashan eih??? coz Mr. Presidnent was going somewhere…and instead of using a jet…he decided to use a car…and that was like 7:”something” this morning…a crucial time for employees, college and school students. when all you can think of is rush…rush…rush..

So, were we bugged or something!!! hell no….2 car crashes coz of the sudden turn before Salah Salem tunnel….people swearing…a woman crying and screaming out of her car as she wants to reach her sick father on the other part of the town…”see we were entertained kaman” grrrrrrrr…not to mention stuck students as I believe they won’t mind being late unless they have an important exam..come on…3adi ya3ni…di kolaha 7agat soghayara..soghayara.

Am I pissed??? how come..and if I am…who cares.
Is my problem the first counselling letter in 5 years? is it something to add up to my high sense of indifference or estrangement to the country? is a matter of being disrespected as a citizen in my country?

Crash “where words have enough power to sting”

“Moving at the speed of life, we are bound to collide with each other”

It’s not only about racism; it’s more about anger, frustration, disconnection, and the high sense of alienation …which has been highly stirred after 9/11…

Several stories of lawyers, cops, locksmiths, whites, blacks, Hispanics, rich, middle-class, poor people during the holiday season….skillfully weaved together….connections between them are never confusing.

A thought provoking…yet emotional movie…not to watch with a” then what happens” mindset…just observe, feel, and think.

Interesting enough…there is no such thing like absolute bad or exceptionally good characters…you start to point your fingers at someone…then not so long you realize your tears are crawling down the cheeks for you feel sorry for that same one…whom you just indicted guilty.

I loved:
The scene where the cop “Matt Dillon” and the director’s wife “Newton” were trapped in a burning car, the freaked out wife couldn’t believe that the guy who is struggling to rescue her is the same one who physically molested and emotionally crashed her and her husband’s pride the night before. The look she gave after getting off the car is unforgettable.

The scenes between the locksmith and his extremely cute…adorable…young daughter are immensely touching….

“You think you know who you are?…you have no idea!!”
