No10: Defining ‘victory’ amidst ruins

Some more thought in to yesterday’s small rant. I believe there’s something which needs clarification, and it’s that I don’t want anyone to believe I believe in the myth that…

No 9: Stupid God Damn War

Sorry, but I can’t remember which entry this is…and once more, I have no spellcheck, so I’ll sound like a relative illiterate at diffrent points. Things are a little tense…

No 8: Sabra & Shatila

There is still some ‘off fighting’ in the South of Lebanon, but nothing major and nothing to fear, inshallah. Quite honestly, I don’t believe that either Hizbullah or Israel anticipated…

No 7: Update on ceasefire

Last night was a god damn mess in this Country. At approximately 7 pm, Israel started bombing the shit out of Hezbollah ‘owned’ areas. They didn’t stop until 8 am…

No 6: Bombings

We were seated in the Forum today, with approximately 900 individuals to be evacuated. The day was good… Until somewhere between 2:30 and 2:45 pm when we heard the bombs….

No 5: Photos so far…

No. 4: Mascara plans foiled

Am safe and in Lebanon; will tell you about my two drunk helicopter pilots later, inshallah. What’s below is a little out of sequence; I wrote this while in Frankfurt…

No. 3: Leaving for Lebanon in 45 min

Right. So, as we were landing in Cyprus at sunset yesterday evening, saw this beautiful island in it’s glory. Pulled out my camera a little too late, but did manage…

Evacuation does not = Beauty

I am sitting in the Airport, traumatised (and without spell check, so forgive my errors). Since some idiots tried to bomb something or else, I AM GOING TO SUFFER. I…

Update no. 1: Itinerary

What a hellish 18 hours past. I didn’t get much sleep last night; as soon as the excitement wore off, the fear kicked in. Mama tried to change my mind,…

Leaving for Cyprus and then on to Lebanon

Negotiations began at 4 pm today and I just received this moments ago from work (this is when work gets fun!): “You are confirmed for departure this Thursday August 10…

Merde A La Puissance Treize!

Congratulations to Italy, the team that didn’t deserve to win. For the duration of the first 45 minutes, I fully expected Italy to win because they dominated the field, holding…

"Allez Les Bleus!"

.1. Zizou scored via penalty kick against Portugal today. Cristiano goes home, and I’ll be surprised if Figo sees the 2010 World Cup. It was a clean game, as futbol…

I shake my fist at the DAMNED penalty kick

I have always found the penalty kick to be the most disturbing aspect of a futbol match. When placed within the context of the World Cup it’s morally reprehensible. There’s…

World Cup Football and Memories of Gaza

My very first memory of futbol was as a baby of less than four years. My father played on a local team and my mom and I would watch and…

World Cup no. 2 (True Story no. 1)

In the summer of 1994, friends and I rented a cabin and left the city during the semi finals of the World Cup (I WAS FORCED!). With us at the…

Last year, I started a new tradition for my dearest girlfriends. On the first Saturday of December, I have the Annual Girls’ Holiday Dinner. Here we are: Missing was E,…

I patty-caked my boss

Two points of note: .1. I was both the only female, and the youngest manager within the team. .2. When I don’t want to forget something, I scribble it on…

Belly dance to this

Two of the sexiest belly dance tunes that you simply must download are: Daret Al Ayam (by: Ro-Je) & Zenia (by: Petrol Bomb Samosa) Holy WOW. You can find both…

Wild cows don’t graze in Nova Scotia (nor do they come from Europe)

My parents had intended to name me ‘Nuha’. Unfortunately for them, the time of my birth proved that my mother had been carrying nothing more than a set of eyes…

Memories of his Melancholy Whores

Am currently on a Gabriel Garcia Marquez bonanza. I am re-reading three of his works at the same time and wanted to share two things with you The first is…

As mentioned earlier, I’ll blog a month-by-month Libra girl / (insert that month’s sign) boy compatibility. My first blog entry in this weirdness was Libra / Libra compatibility. What follows…
