It is Sunday morning and I am home, sipping my coffee “Najjar brand 3ashan we are going local, remember!!” Someone would say ya Narnoura Najjar is originally Lebanese not Egyptian!! and my answer would be a) w malhom el Lebanese ba2a, a7san nas (tal3eeb 7awageb ;). b) yes it is, however on the pack they stated that it is made in Egypt under the technical supervision of Najjar Association (Lebanon). Kaman we are supporting Arab as well as Egyptian purchases, cool ya3ni.
Back to my day off 😀 (which is definitely a happy thought); it is tough times at work, and I’ve been super stressed the past few weeks. Apparently the upcoming weeks until probably the end of March won’t be any better (sweeeeeet!!). That’s why I decided to enjoy a long weekend and totally unplug. I needed it the most; the thing is I have no problem what_so_ever with work overload, usually what stresses me out are the people. I cannot go on and on about this issue in particular cause it is sorta unethical yet I believe I will be able to carry on isa after this break. I know it is normal and I should be grateful that I still have a job, given the current situation.
Off with the topic. I will probably spend the day reading. Currently on the last Quarter of Ibrahim 3abdel Meguid’s “3atabat el bahga” which I read solely for the title’s sake :D. Aslan I lost faith in this writer long ago, and last summer after reading his tyoor el 3anbar..I was like, that’s it buddy. Let’s call it quits. you are SO not allowed into my bookcase, and I MEAN it. Yet, after hearing from so many people that this one is good as well as the alluring title ta3an, I was like, what the heck, give him ore more chance..don’t we all need a second chance??
I was planning to go pamper bondo2a “my car”, yet I am so lazy to go out and monitor people around giving bondo2ty a bride’s shower, I am even too lazy to talk today. The mood might change by the end of the day though…you never know.
Will go for Tuesdays with Morrie after my current read just to get with reading it, not that am excited about the read. People were recommending Mitch Albom’s books like crazy, and I was like apparently he is not to be missed. I started with his Five People you Meet in Heaven and was turned off big time; the book is not really bad on the contrary it is good. An easy and quick read that’s neither hasty nor intense. I just have a big issue with any book that gives you this feeling of “the moral of the story is….”. it is explicitly highlighted, which is something that I didn’t admire awi ya3ni.
Note to you: Any book recommendations for me? been a while since I read something the swept me off my feet!!
I’ve also started a Thursday movie ritual :D. Seriously; almost every Thursday I would go hit the movie theaters to watch a movie. I am not much of a movie person and I figured out that I might have missed some good ones cause I simply can’t get myself to sit on a chair for 2+ hours staring at the same screen. And since I now can declare myself a frequent movie goer 😉 I may recommend Both Mikano and the Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Both movies are not to be missed. Mikano is quite different for the Egyptian Market, yet falls under the same umbrella of Asef Lel Ez3ag if I may say. As for Benjamin Buttion you gotta watch it yourself cause it is brilliant. Just to be honest it is a little long, slow paced, and would leave you with a faint miasma of dejection though.
I will go enjoy my day off, and you have a wonderful one at work ;p
