‘Les grandes personnes ne comprennent jamais rien toutes seules, et c’est fatigant, pour les enfants, de toujours leur donner des explications.’

– Le Petit Prince, Antoine De St-Exupéry

I know this is an unusual post, but I just felt like adding something a little bit more personal than usual. This is dedicated to my little angel Nour, who always gives sense to my life when everything seems blurred or dark. Nour, I adore you. Nour checks the blog every morning when she wakes up, and I’m sure she will recognize herself in this post. We are the ones who should be called ‘with special needs’. We need special people like her around us to show us what life really is about.

6-come-back

I woke up sick today, for the first day back to work after 4 beautiful days of vacation! Very motivating… My throat is killing me 🙁 I took the classical mix of honey and lemon and tea, in the hope of getting rid of the pain A.S.A.P. Please let me know if you have other express-solutions. As for yesterday’s alien rumour, it turns out that what (very intelligent) people mistook for aliens were actually chinese lanterns launched at my colleague’s brother’s wedding (what a small world!). Someone got it right in the comments 😉 Have a beautiful day 🙂

Well, it seems that all my trials of changing the water bottle at work are doomed for eternity. It’s unfair that they make them so heavy and thus impossible to carry. We girls always end up calling each other for support. I’m going to get a stock of 0.5L bottles w khalass. With this, I wish you all a lovely sunny week-end! 🙂

This is what happens when you spend too much time working. Lesson: Never forget yourself while working! This story proves my hypothetical statement that office jobs are against human nature. My darlings, I’m literally falling asleep as I’m posting this, but I couldn’t stay  longer without seeing you! I have a lot to tell you, after a good night’s sleep. See you tomorrow! 🙂

Until last year, I didn’t know copywriting was actually a job. Cases like this menu show how CRUCIAL it is to have all kinds of text written by professionals! I was very tempted to laugh about this sentence, it can really be interpreted in cynical ways, but I’m positive that’s not how they meant it. I think they meant that they love vegetarians as much as they love eating chicken. But it still wouldn’t make sense. If you know who wrote this, please, slap them for me. With this, I wish you a beautiful bright day! 🙂 hasta mañana

Philippe! 🙂 I (still) think your music is absolutely fantabulous! 😛 And I invite you all to get his wonderful album “Sunday Afternoon.” You can find it in Virgin. It’s amazing!! And you can have a sneak peak by clicking here. (My favourites are tracks 1, 5 & 6). I am looking forward to listen to him playing again, he is playing every Wednesday and Sunday at the Jazz Lounge. And now, I wish you all  a jazzy day! 🙂 See you around…

To be continued tomorrow…

 

Hello my darlings, I’ve been very slow in posting I’m sorry! but i need to catch up on a LOT of work + I’m preparing some X-filed surprises that I will tell you about hopefully soon!!! Ramadan Kareem to all concerned, didn’t have a chance to ‘3ayyedkon’ before. So this is the first part of the revelation, we’ll see tomorrow how the story unfolds 😛 Until then, have a lovely day! 🙂 (and to those of you who are not in Leb, the car on the wall of the mall is really there, it’s an ad, very creative one!)

I was able to catch another SCOOP of the book in Virgin in the Comics (BD = bandes dessinées) section! Terrible photo quality, but I had to do it very fast 😛 Here you are (but don’t tell anyone! 😛 ) I’m still receiving messages/e-mails about where the book can be found: it can be found in Virgin Megastore (Downtown, ABC Ashrafieh, City Mall Airport) and Libraire Antoine across Leb.

Feels like I haven’t posted in ages… I missed you so much and you were on my mind all the time! As you can see, stuff were happening in my life in the past few days 😛 Most importantly, about the book: I trustfully gave it to the printing press who should return it to me multiplied by 500… I really DO hope they don’t mess it up *fingers and toes crossed*…. Besides that, had to catch up on a lot of work that I had been proudly ditching… and right now, I’m just taking a 5 min break to tell you hello, and to hope you enjoyed your weekend, and to wish you a great week-to-come! See you soon 🙂
