wolf whistle

i just got wolf whistled by 4 girls on my way to work this afternoon, hehe

they made my day (call me silly but it did)

update/clarification: they weren't 4 girls, it was a group of 4 girls

Tagged by LoLo

ya LoLo i have been looking for an English version of that tag for a while now, shokran ya madame :p

1) Are you happy/satisfied with your blog with it's content and look?

The look i couldn't be less satisfied with, i need a new template desperatly. as for the content i am "more than happy" with it (george carlin once said that "more than happy" sounds like a dangerous mental condition, i've been using it since then)

2) Does your family know about your blog?

my mom and dad know i have something called a blog ( i explained to them that it's some form of " online magalet 7a2et". i'd rather if they don't read it though, as for my sis she discovered my blog sometime after the Dahab incident, all she had to do was type dahab, explosion, arrested and kareem and she got me as the first result in her search

i gotta say it feels strange a lil' wee bit that my sis reads this since she knows all about the initials, she knows who are (H), (R), (N), the asshole, she knows everybody probably, and it's definetly wierd having her read you talk about your family problems

3) Do you feel embarrassed to let your friends know about your blog or you just consider it as a private thing?

i believe if my friends were reading it that would bias what i'm writting about, i'd be afraid what they thought or worry about hurting someone's feelings. that's not even mentioning (the asshole) and the 4-5 posts about him. so i appreciate being partially anonymous, the only exceptions are a couple of my friends who won't judge me (2 or 3)

4) Did blogs cause positive changes in your thoughts?

a little bit, it helped me vent a lot of anger at times when u couldn't talk about stuff with anybody

5) Do you only open the blogs of those who comment on your blog or you love to go and discover more by yourself?

i used to discover in the begining, even before i started blogging myself, but for the past 2 months i haven't had the time at all :( and even the ones who comment i sometimes spend a week before checking their blogs.

Where is number 6 ya lolo?

7) Did you try to imagine your fellow bloggers and give them real pictures?

I do, with the ones i read regularly. i have also mentioned that i have a problem following a blog with someone putting his smug pic on his profile yet somehow this only applies to egyptian bloggers (for example T.A.N, Dave Lozo from why not get drunk and blog? or (p_is_for_payj) from (things that make you go "hmmm") have their pics on their blog and i'm fine with them)

8) Admit. Do you think there is a real benefit for blogging?

well, there are if you're a famous blogger, or if you're not then u have something to bitch about, plus it's like this matt dude said at "50 millionblogs... some of them have to be good

9) Do you think that bloggers society is isolated from real world or interacts with events?

of course they do, most blogs are about the real world, reality tv minus the tv

10) Does criticism annoy you or do you feel it's a normal thing?

depends on the form of critisizm, i like smart critisizm even if it's harsh, and i'm against personal attacks

11) Do you fear of some political blogs and avoid them?

no. i fear our government.

12) Did you get shocked by the arrest of some bloggers?

well... the fact that they were bloggers wasn't what got them arrested, it's what got them out

13) Did you think about what will happen to your blog after you die?

it's gonna miss me.

14) What do you like to hear? What's the song you like to put its link in your blog?

links to music on webpages are the devil, some of my favorite bloggers i can't read because whenever i go to their page my p.c freezes and closes all explorer windows, although i could recommend some songs, i usually do HERE

15) Five bloggers to be the next "victims"?

Hmmm... i dunno who hasn't done it yet. mando? raghood? walaa? T.A.N and Arima from Hakaza ana, hathor, TINY, and anybody else who bothers basically.... oooh and Sand-e tab3an and N if she's into tags

p.s it's i don't know that many people not that much people ya LoLo :p

yarab te7eb... aho enta

on my way to work this morning i was approached by a beggar kid (there's been a significant increase in them recently, maybe it's a government policy or something) and all of them automatically go for the young dude in a suit

he passed by me and turned around to follow me, saying the usual stuff (got some spare change? type sayings), what almost stopped me in my tracks was hearing him say (ya rab te7eb) which translates to i hope you fall in love

my first instinct was to go "oh yeah!!! well i hope you fall in love too!!!"

cuz when u think of it, is that really a good thing to wish upon the unsuspecting good doer?
I mean how many times have you fallen in love? and out of all those times how many times did it turn out to be "the one"? see footnote (1)

oh by the way are you still with that one? or did u do something to push him away ( i say him cuz i came to terms with the fact that all of you reading this post are female - with the exception of mando) Is he still out there searching or perhaps even enjoying life with HIS one?

The problem is we have been led to believe that there is a one out there for all of us, hollywood standards, happy endings, AND we began expecting to find them in real life, which let's face it even hollywood itself stopped doing (the breakup for example)

p.s. actually i LOVE my female readers, came to terms is an understatement. i love everything female but u probably knew that

(1) "the one" is a ficticious character blown out of proportion by different forms of media, he is sometimes reffered to as a hero in old tales (rumor has it he lived a long time ago in old syria but these rumors were never verified) in other versions of the tale he is rumored to return at the end of life on this earth.

or something

her face

i need to speak with my ex (the ex)

a lot has happened since our "unexplained" breakup

about 2 years have passed and till now we're not as friends as i'd like us to be

i'm not fishing for an explaination, i'm not eager for a quick "reminder" of the good old times, i'm not trying to get her back, i'm not trying to make her see that i'm better off without her, i'm not trying to impress her, i'm not trying to re-live old romances, i'm not trying to hook up with her hot best friend, i'm not aiming for a sympathy-make out session, i'm not trying to prove to myself that i'm over her, i'm not trying to prove to myself that i still need her, i'm not trying to get her out of my system, i'm not missing her the way a guy misses his ex, i'm not looking for a pat on the back or reassurance.

i just need a familiar face

and her face till now cries out with familiarty
her face screams with all the long moments we spent talking about nothing and everything.
her face -along with her voice- can make me forget or even get over stressful days
although she caused me stress sometimes
i still haven't found someone who made me even half as stable as she did

she shares the factual -shit happens- attitude with me like no one ever has or probably can
she shares the love of life and the acceptance of it's bitchness with me like no one else
she's the one who lives by the motto no regrets, just like me
she's so "truthful" that she'll make you cry
she's so tactful that she'll make you fall in love with her

she can be just as annoying as i can be, a little bit more

where have you been? i miss you, miss you, miss you

we talked yesterday...
we chatted about stuff, like we've been doing for the past 3 days or so
i hope she doesn't freak out when she reads this

i found myself telling her stuff that i would easily share with my close friends
the few of them that remained
and yet i don't know her

and it's not that i said stuff i shouldn't have
or revealed a dark secret
but i was extremly at ease while doing none of the above

she doesn't know me too
the fact that we are strangers makes it so much easier to tell her everything
when we talk... it's like we've been there for a while now

so, should we remain faceless to each other
some sort of therapy? an advanced audio form of blogging?
will it last either way or fade anyway

anyway, i guess only time will tell
wish me luck oh wishing well

p.s i think i need a new mobile phone, any suggestions?

I'm Hitler

i actually took this test about 3 months ago, and the result came out to be Sadaam Hussain (with the phrase "people who don't like you better like chemical weapons" written in the middle of the picture) i wasn't convinced so i decided not to post it

now 3 months have changed and i figured maybe i was biased by some unfortunate asshole-related event or something that ticked me into answering ugly answers

and you thought sadaam was bad huh?

be afraid


p.s which reminds me does anyone know the song "even hitler had a girlfriend"?? you can find it on my small lyrics blog

A man lives to be 112 on a diet of sausages and waffles

even more proof for you healthy eaters

you're gonna die young and miserable
