So I have been tagged again by Hany! Too many of these tag games going around…but luckily – I end up killing them as I have no one else to tag πŸ™‚ I remember getting these types of Fwd’s in the mail…I guess it is now evolving into blogs to match the whole Web 2.0 thing…So anyway, here is more information than you probably ever wanted to know about me:

SECTION 1 – Last 1s?
1. last beverage? Orange Juice
2. last phone call? Hany – but I got his voicemail
3. last instant message? Some guy at work – but socially, Zekri

6. Is there something you want to tell someone?Β yeah – Mohab…I loved hanging out at your house…those were the good old days πŸ™‚
7. Would you kiss anyone on your top friends? This question is stupid – you don’t say “top” friends – you say “best friends” – thats #1 – #2 it should be “Would you kiss anyone of your best friends?” – and yes I would as long as they are male and its on the cheek πŸ˜›

  1. Section 4
    # 7…I doubt πŸ˜€
    # 19…Who is tom!?
    # 21…you better give it back to him
    # 24…i thouhgt i’m the only one who feels the difference!

    nice post πŸ˜‰

  2. Thanks for the comments πŸ™‚

    #7 – I kiss guy friends in Egypt all the time in Egypt…and to any ‘foreigners’ here – don’t get the wrong impression – this is acceptable and normal in Arabic culture πŸ™‚

    #19 – I could tell you…but then I’d have to kill you

    #21 – They’re mine now πŸ˜› I’ve lost touch with the guy (hes in Abu Dhabi I believe)

    #24 – You’re not the only one who notices the difference. The thing I can’t comprehend is how Americans here prefer Coke to Pepsi! Coke is (unfortunately) everywhere here!

  3. Ya these were the days ,laid back and did jack , remeber that german movie u were watching for that film class that was the funniest, anyway hope all is good say hi to the mrs

  4. πŸ˜€ As long as he’s a male and it’s on the cheek?!! πŸ˜€ I can’t stop laughing!

    So, no other types of kissing?! :-D… I’ll just stop here!

  5. Mohab – yeah, those were the days…i never did understand that german movie (even though it had subtitles) there were waaaay too many different characters and they all looked alike! I barely understood the story from reading summaries online…There also this other German movie that turns out it was banned from the US for a period of time because it was considered child pornography!!! (I think its allowed now…I had no clue at the time what the story was even about)

    Hany – I try to always imagine what a foreigner would think about this whole kissing on the cheek thing – so i’m just trying to show that in our culture its acceptable (I don’t assume everyone reading my blog is Arab)

    Alia – You didn’t leave a comment I know, but I just wanted to let you know I love you very very much πŸ™‚ (hmmm, lets see how long it takes for you to see this comment?)

    I am glad you are enjoying my blog…I am not sure of how I could be of help to you exactly. Could you elaborate? Plus to be honest, I do not have much experience in any of the technologies (I work on the Windows team) so my experience is more development in C/C++.
