On to the (bad) news..
On the 27th, there has ben a terrible, horrific accident (links to pictures of ruined cars)on the Cairo ring road, it was ugly. A huge truck (with faulty breaks) crashed into cars, taxi cabs, mini bus(es), a bus (or more) and another truck. At least 40 people were injured, and (at least) 8 people died. I am, again, not trying to promote the wrong image of my home country...This is an ode to everyone who had died, those injured and a "what were you thinking?" to those at fault. May your souls rest in peace. May we all find peace. And security. And harmony.

i wish i could control my temper more too. i can be pretty hotheaded sometimes.

that's awful about the accident. it's so sad the tragedies that people suffer through. my heart goes out to them all.

thank you so much for your SWEET comment on my blog today! it made me smile. :) for the record, my boyfriend gets all the credit for my hair. he's my stylist, and he's incredible. he's the one who had the foresight to chop at all off, and i'm so glad he did! :) annnyway, thank you again for reading and commenting! i really appreciate it. :)

Miss B said...

Thank you, doll, for your kind comment the other day -- very sweet, indeed.

Your words and thoughts about that ugly crash are...just so.

You are lovely.

(I love sushi, too, but don't tell my pet fishes that; they would be very sad to hear it.)

Be well...
