Extraordinary, Curious Tuesday and a mini-list

I always make lists..because they just put me at ease! Among the list of my favorite things:

  1. Eating a mango with all my five senses. YUM!
  2. Driving fast on quiet morning with the windows down, listening to my favorite driving songs.
  3. Being goofy with my cousins.
  4. My cousins
  5. Laughing. and smiling.
I forgot to mention that the fourteenth marked 6 months at my job, time flies by..it really does!


Day 15: My boss tweeted that I was profound!

Day 16: I actually had a blog post written about me! And the book signed addressed to the "future minister of development"!!! YES, that would be me! It was such an ego boost....that someone could see that in me...that my aspirations are not so entirely beyond what I can achieve.. or what people see in me.

Day 17: I was about to crash into a car with my cousin's son beside me and I got away with it. Swerved the car last minute! My cousins and I drove along the 6th of October bridge just so the Alexandrian (where they have no bridges) would enjoy it and we saw the Nile. And back. I just had a mango :)

I have been losing followers. And we are losing a friend now, she needs your prayers, our 20 year old friend suddenly went into a coma, internal bleeding..her brain...brain tumor. Life support...they're waiting for her heart to stop.

On another note, my mum got me 10 LE leggings...(a bit less than $2!) And I need to check me some blogs. It's just that fasting and I haven't been getting along that well. No coffee, no food and no water until 6:30 pm and going to work and the gym while fasting...I don't really respond to stimuli under such circumstances...you see.

Yes, I see. I see a beautiful city that I am in love with. I see the blessed person that I am (aren't we all?) I see a brighter tomorrow. I see you. I see me. I see. I. See. (with everything I am)

Have you seen Gala's curious Tuesday? I love it!

Love & marriage, love & marriage, go together like a horse & carriage…
1. How do you feel about marriage as a concept? Idealistic, very, very much so...maybe if we don't set such high expectations, things would be different.
2. Do you think you’ll ever want to get married? Maybe someday (the break up has cultivated a cynic within me..oh our would've been 3rd anniversary is here..) I originally wanted to get married ASAP, but now I feel like I have a long way to go, when it comes to getting to know me.
3. If you did get married, would you want a big blow-out celebration or would you keep it low-key? A HUGE WEDDING! A HUGE, HUGE WEDDING!! And it would be quirky and special and bright and lovely!

I love your list. I think everyone should eat with all five senses all the time. Food is such a gift!
I got a blog post written about me too, it's such a great feeling!

That is SO nice what your boss said about you! And you know what? All of it is true! I feel like I know you, but I really don't. However I can tell the kind of person you are, and she described it perfectly. I feel that we would be great friends! Don't worry about losing followers - they come and go, but your core readers will always stay. Don't make the mistake in thinking you're doing something wrong...keep blogging these wonderful things!

Eating mango with your five senses? That is the most beautiful thing I've heard all day!

UnKown said...

whos. who.. love is the horse and marriage is the carriage..

what about the 10 LE legging.. thats a really random thought

Nice post..

Gracie said...

What a great list! You seem to be sparkling with happiness! (I hope your friend is alright)

I think profound is such a great word. And to be described as that would definitely be an ego boost!

You are truly Profound!
I haven't been blogging very much either. It's so hard to think about computers when I'm fasting. I work, ride bikes, and do stuff that get me so dehydrated, I just want to sit and stare. lol
1. I just wish people didn't take it as a joke.
2. Oh man, I don't know. I love marriage, but I'm scared. I don't want to devote my all to someone, and get heartbroken. At the same time, I believe in true love. So, it's hard.
3.I want a small wedding by a body of water. :)
Have a good weekend.





LOVE!

I am not a bit surprised that so many other recognize your intelligence and general fabulosity!

Six months on the job--and already considered profound--well done.
