Oh and...

The French tend to translate their movies into French and even the
titles of the movies, so sometimes when reading the title you really
cannot make which movie it really is! Anyway I saw the translation of
Eagle Eye yesterday, and the translation was... *drums beating*
"L'oeil du mal"

Wlek shou khas? Don't they even at least watch the movie before
translating the title that probably took I donno how much for the
original people to come up with!


Ok rta7et nafsiyan :P But the crepe here rocks!

Yes Paris - No Poop

5 days and I did not step in poop in Paris. Why? Because I rock! Okay okay I've been careful and all. So I have today and tomorrow to make without stepping in poop. Do you think I'll make it?
The temperature is still the same, between 0 degrees and 5! But I don't longer feel that cold, so I think my body is immune sorta! Who would've thought!
That's paris for me! Cold and poopy! Ok ok am kidding, it's much more than that, it's a nice place, really, pretty good for taking photographs at night if you have a good cam that is, or at least a tripod. Either ways, I like it cause it has an amazing wide variety of things to do and places to eat in.
Funniest thing is, I looked up a toy store online, that is pretty close by, so I picked the gift to buy for my nephew, I went there, and it was a soirée privée, meaning you can only get to the store if you have an invitation! Argh! French w 7araketoun. So I left ... like a person who was not able to get a gift for her nephew! But I bought a white coat pour moi!

Paris, who would've thought I would feel this way.

This time felt different, this time is different.

While I was in the taxi on my way to the hotel, I looked outside... I
felt nothing. All I was thinking about was getting to the hotel, going
online and resting.

Last time?
Last time I tried to eat Paris with my eyes. As soon as I got to the
hotel, I dropped my things in my room and got out till the last metro
took me back.

This time?
This time, I went to the hotel, found that internet is not free, cried
a bit and held the "Don't try to cheer me up, I am disturbed already"
something like that T-shirt, I held it close, and cried. I want to go
back to Lebanon. 7 more days and I will be back.

The shower booth is so freakin small, I kept bumping into it. BLEH.

And I drank a 3 Euros bottle of water, barely half a liter (well it
was from the mini bar) I was too thirsty and no way I was gonna get
out in the cold to buy water!

Paris, who would've thought I would feel this way.

My brother

*looks both ways*
*okay no one's there, I can write from the heart...*

Just when you think you're having a bad day or a bad week, not necessarily bad, but sort of not amusing and not fun and not cheery "yey w yay"... but "ouf w leish"... something quite interesting happens, like someone you've know for 27 years and 10 months and 28 days, tells you that your opinion matters to him, that he sees himself in you, that your eyes carry the same dreams his eyes used to carry...

Moreover, you get to know someone you used to greatly admire, but you forgot you admire over the years, things make people part; bad things, life, work, family, location, but then again, one word, one blink can bring back two persons to that exact same point they both left at, however both equipped with more. More knowledge, more ambition and more dreams.

I like this day. I thought it sucked, but the things that matter most finally brought itself to the surface.

No no! No! You are not having a worse day than mine!

You know you're having a bad day when while happily eating your
custard you feel something between your teeth, you see, custard is
supposed to be "meyi3", and why is there something plastiky in your
month? So you bring your fingers towards your lips, you bring out
whatever is in you mouth with your tongue towards your lips, suddenly
your fingers meet... a cockroach's leg.

I am surprised I did not puke!

I hate you all!

Kylie - Part VI "Crème de la crème"

... more than just eyes, she saw much more, and she felt much more. It was no longer just a look, it's a simple commitment, signed on by just looking at each other.*

Kylie was not experiencing an extra-terrestrial phenomenon or a miracle, it was simple Human Feelings 101. You've felt it, I've felt it. It's called love. People who fall in love with each other don't always have to say and spell things, they just see it and receive it.

*- "So what are our plans for tonight?" Asked Kylie.
- "I see..." He murmured. "So now it's become 'our'?" He demanded.
She smiled.
- "Yes." With an emphasis on the letter s. "Yes, what are OUR plans for tonight?" She said it while continuing to smile.
- "Am thinking we chill at my place, order some food and watch that DVD you've been nagging about for the past month. Whatcha say?", he enthousiastically asked her.
- "Sure thing! I like!" She confirmed.*

Ah... the simple things in life are sometimes what the doctor prescribes. Can you think of anything better and more relaxing than putting your feet up on the stool, eating pepperoni pizza and watching a good movie? I personally can't.

*Kylie was in her Sculpting course. She wanted to do something for herself, something different that her job line, she wanted to be as far away from where her clients might go, her colleagues might be interested in attending and her bosses dropping by! She decided to learn how to sculpt. Twice a week, pretty fun at the beginning, but grew to become rather difficult at later stages. However, she persevered, no quitting this time.

- "What time do you think you'll finish?" Nicely asked by Kylie.
- "Am not sure babe." He negatively replied.
- "Oh okay... well have a good night dear. We'll talk later." Kylie sadly answered.
- "Take care dear." He said.

While Kylie was coming out of her class, all pissed off at her lousy perfomance today, because she's pretty much stressed out from work, a lot of tasks, a lot of projects and deadlines concurring with each other. As soon as she got out of her class, there he was, like a dream, in his suit, no tie, the tie stayed in the car. He was standing there waiting for her and starring at the door from which she got out, waiting for her, his eyes did not wander, his eyes waited too.

She walked in fast pace towards him and gave him the most credible hug she's ever given. She hugged him and kissed him on the cheek.

- "You're here!" She screamed. "You're so cute baby"
He gave her his famous grin and said, "Am here babe."
He took her tools from her.
- "Let's take a walk"
- "Yey! Okay!" She answered excitingly.*

Sometimes Kylie behaves like kids, not in a bad way, but in a real sincere way. And she did when she saw him because she did not expect him to be there. She knew he had obligations and he was extremely tired. So the idea of him surprising her did not even cross her mind, thus her reaction was purely real. She was happy. How often do you feel really happy? And not calculated implicated concluded happyness? Yeah? Think about it. We've been taught to think happy and not feel happy, or at least this is my impression of things nowadays.

*- "You know..." She thought outloud. "Since I've been spending time with you, I just feel like everyone else doesn't compare to you, I just want to be with you and do even sillier things with you that really only feel like the best moments in my life. How can I have and experience such real moments with you, and then go and try to with other persons? How can I choose others over you? You are "crème de la crème". She babbled.
He kissed her. "Stop babbling babe, let's go grab something to eat!"
- "Oh you moron, you can't know when a compliment hits you in the face..." She stopped.
- "Yeah baby, just walk, you can't even get the come back expression right!" He laughed at her while pulling her towards him and placing him arm on her back without letting go of her arm.

She laughed. "You suck!" She pretended to say it with agony.
So he starred at her, and kept starring at her, they stopped walking. The noise around them disappeared. She looked at him and couldn't believe that such a moment can actually exist. She was there. Living it. So he leaned over with his big eyes, and she felt a bit dizzy. He leaned even more, with his pink lips he ... *

Am sort of hungry, so I will go have a soup!

Let life be the judge

Many times you feel like life is closing its doors on you, throwing tomatoes at you, creating multiple and various obstacles in front of you, tries to make you fall, magically creates a wall, tries to divert your route, and what do you do? you keep trying, because you think and know, were brought up to believe that you can and should do it.

But shouldn't you trust life? Don't you think that it's doing all this for a reason? And maybe you should just quit and stop whatever you're doing, maybe all you have to do is look to your right.
