Let’s Talk: Let’s take an action

I guess keda it is just about the right time to take action in regards to what happened in Down Town during the Eid, I brain stormed keda shwaya, and i came up with a couple of ideas:

1- we can organzie “Wa2fa banati” , el wa2fa teb2a samta, we all dressed in black.

2- Presentation about el entehakat starting the events of 25 May, we can present it either @ studio 206, or neqabet el sa7afeyeen.

What do you think???

So, now if you please, whoever is willing to help with the presentation, let me know and leave ur email so we can discuss our schedule.

As for the stand, ladies please let me know if interested or not, as I would like to know if it is gonna be a big thing or…this will help in deciding the place w keda.

Beautiful morning

It sure is, a wonderful morning in Cairo, a little breezy, but me wants more, greedy ba2a :).  I have the energy of 2 very healthy horses who are looking forward to run in the desert…endlessly.  Seriously, I slept around 8 consecutive hours last night, which is great, didn’t happen in the last 45 days….fa I feel so energized this morning, feels like me awi, at a point keda, I thought I lost the energetic vivid me, bas apparently I was too drained and exhausted.  Anywayz, glad am back 😀

Cookies, cookies, cookies “as in ka7k”, cookies talk everywhere, it is the focus of attention these days…madame khashab, la2 Sedra, forget it Les Dames w khalas, can’t say i don’t like the talk, as it is a bit mouth watering”am starving and it is still 10″, bas it is too much, kaman the funny thing ba2a, eno inorder to buy the cookies aslan you have to spend hours and hours in queues to get what u want, mmmm we can exclude Mme Khashab from the queues thing, bas still it is too “much ado about a little thing” can’t say nothing though ;).

The night we attended the concert, the guys were playing  a piece keda that touched me awi in a very strange way, I opened my purse to check the tilte of the piece on the CD, and it hit me when I read it “Zafet el Shahid”…it is so beautiful. Just a little thought while  listening to it.

“The Unbearable Lightness of Being” by Kundera is my Eid book, the title tab3an caught me, not only that but while googling it, I found the following lines in the Wikipedia:

“According to Kundera, “being” is full of “unbearable lightness” because each of us has only one life to live: “Einmal ist Keinmal” (“once is never”, i.e., “what happened once might as well have never happened at all”). Therefore, each life is ultimately insignificant; every decision ultimately does not matter. Since decisions do not matter, they are “light”: they do not tie us down. But at the same time, the insignificance of our decisions – our lives, or being – is unbearable. Hence, “the unbearable lightness of being.”

Interesting…ha??  more on when I get done with it.

I go ba2a,

3 hours after midnight

She’s a girl
Rising from a shell
Running to spring
It is her time it is her time
Watch her run with ribbons undone

She’s a rose in a lily’s cloak
She can hide her charms
It is her right there will be time
To chase the sun with ribbons undone

She runs like a fire does
Just picking up daises
Comes in for a landing
A pure flash of lightening
Past alice blue blossoms
You follow her laughter
And then she’ll surprise you
Arms filled with lavender

“Tori Amos’s Ribbons Undone”:


Oh my…..am extremely exhausted, both physically and mentally.  I barely sleep. Am involved in an important project keda…fa am literally losing my mind.  The good news is..am off next Sunday, which means eno I only have 4 working days before the 3eed vacation…I have a whole week off….don’t have any plans yet…but one thing I know for sure…my phone will be off and am gonna relaaaaaaaaaaaaaax. 


Re-read Bahaa Taher’s “Noqtet el Nour”…God, I refer to this novel whenever I feel a bit down keda or not in the mood….it says a lot.

Now almost half way thru 7anan El Sheikh’s “7ekayti Shar7 Ytool”….Berry recommended it, and here I am recommending it….it is such a beautiful read…too warm, sincere, and full of details.
