My views, observations, questions about everything in this world ....and that country they call Egypt.

It's A Good Life If You Don't Weaken

Here are some excerpts out of the last few days...

1. I waited for someone, online, but they never showed up!

2. Someone said they would email me 'akeed' (= for sure) the next day but they never did!

3. I met birthday girl in another gathering and we didn't even say hi this time! Don't you just hate it when you find out you didn't say hi to a person in the group and it's obviously too late to say hi now?

4. I promised someone I would call them after work but I never did!

5. I sent a message to someone I don't know!

6. My best friend broke up with his gf. He looked fine, but I can tell deep inside there is an emotional storm. Us guys don't show our emotions very much, even to our closest friends. They looked very happy together. The problem had to do with long distance and pressure from her parents!

7. If you're gonna break up with a guy, don't send an email to his friend asking him to take care of your ex!

8. I was in my work building when this girl, with an unusual smile, looked at me and walked past me. I turned my head around to see what's going on (ok... to check her out) and at that exact moment she looked back and smiled!

9. Someone called me 'such a sweetheart' for no apparent reason!

10. I met this guy for the first time, he was so down to earth and innocent. I polluted him with some of my ideas. I showed him how everything isn't so rosey. I felt bad afterwords!

11. I haven't started my to do list yet... time is running out!

12. Sam gave me an official World Cup bracelet for the German team as a present!

13. I can't find a good flip phone with a camera... does anyone have suggestions?

14. I talked politics with an old man and we bordered on religion. I was surprised to find that we agree on a lot of things!

15. For maybe the one hundredth time, I come to the conclusion that I cannot sing!

16. I was right in predicting the winner of Rockstar Supernova. In fact, I picked the top 2 right!

17. Had an uncomfortable elevator ride... one woman's husband left her for a younger girl. I used to know that guy, he seemed nice!

18. I keep getting emails (103 in the last month) directed to someone by the name of 'Rania Fahim' though my name is nowhere close. I never knew anyone by that name either. Rania, if you are out there, stop using my email!

"...this girl, with an unusual smile"

OK, I've got to see it for myself. What's unusual about it?
Quickly get that "flip phone with a camera" & post the picture here!

BTW, I have an old Motorola V600, it works fairly well.

felfela,
I don't know, I think that previous encounter was better. At least I got to touch someone... that makes me sound like a creep doesn't it? :)

lexcen, oh only if we could!

maat,
Anyone can make music, they just never try :).
Actually I am a sagitarius... how'd you guess?

still breathing,
1. She fell asleep!
2. Talk is cheap!
3. It was weird. I am the king of awkward moments.
4. I am guilty too.
5. It was interesting.
6. If the breakup isn't hard then either the relationship wasn't serious or the couple are extremely understanding.
8. Why is she a bitch?????
9. She
10. 26 maybe
11. yep yep... I'm on it.
12. I'm wondering if I should open it or keep it packed and sell it in a couple of years!! That's evil though, selling a present.
14. Are you saying my ideas are childish???
15. Too egotistical maybe. But why are you calling me dumb?
16. Got lucky.
17. Really?? I don't see a lot of them.
18. They are not persnal emails, they're subscribtions and such...

chris,
Well, you know how there is a regular smile? The smile you put on when you get introduced to someone. This wasn't it. It was a big smile with a look and tilt of the head. I don't know how to describe it. It was just not a smile you'd give to a random stranger. Yes, I am implying that she saw something she liked and was giving me a signal :). But again, maybe I had my zipper open or something like that.

crazy girl,
The Razor is flat but it's big. I think I'll break it.

blackland,
I don't see anything new on your blog. What's going on man?

hey i just discovered your blog from SM land. Although i d seen your posts, i actually thought you were non-egyptian until i read something in the alcohol post- you know the one!

Well, a refreshing blog, if i may say so. i wish i had clicked on the link before.

#3 definitely annoying

as for #1 in the hug post- respect to you and try if you can to make him feel like he's one of the guys if there is such a phenomenon at your work place. I am sure he picked up on your compassion- it's often surprising how little things tht we do can have a big impact on people.

الطفلة التى مرقت من جوارى
و ابتسمت،
وجهى ...
هل ذكرها بشئ؟

لكننى لم أبتسم
فأنا مشغولة
ارتب النهاية على النحو الذى
لا يدين أحداً.

I know that the girl in no "8" isnt exactly a child, and that the lines may seem irrelevant, bas i dont know y the scene reminded me of these lines:)

Hey there,

1) It's the most depressing thing when you wait for someone that doesn't show up. Not only disappointing, but you also feel empty inside and like a jack ass for wasting time :)

2&4) Promises like those are overrated; that sh*t should be spontaneous

3) Hate it! but... it's never too late to say HI. In fact, it's a lot better when you do, even if it's late

8. Did you get to see her again?

9. There's always a reason

12. Snore... Germany's team. Italy was so much hotter

13. Definitely the Nokia 6131

14. I love it when there's more to people than you'd expected

15. oh, stop that. When I sing, people tell me I suck. That's why I sing when I'm alone in the car, and sometimes in the shower, lol
