Blogs I read (or don't)

Everyone has a boring old list of blogs they read and stuff, right? Well, in favor of going against the tide and coming up with something more creative, i've decided to turn all my links into a bit of a story. Enjoy!

Some of these are worth nokting, some of these aren't. But overall, if you have nothing better to do (and if you're still on my site, you probably don't), they're worth checking out:


I sat and contemplated how my life in Bahrain was. It was sort of odd how my life went, the chaotic randomness shifting my moodz one day after the next. I felt like I was living in a little den, separated from the great world out there; "I feel like an outkast", I wrote in my journal, "ah, but that was the serendipity that life had given me".

It's just another day, so enough with the drivel and random thoughts going through my head. Even though I felt unsettled, lost, sort of like Ibn Battuta, I was sure that there was asilver lining to this grey cloud called life. Enough with me being concerned about how bad things were going, sitting in this restaurant at the corner of the city, all these crazy ideas in my dome; I need to start thinking about this huge taqo and the cool red glass of strawberry juice full of ice infront of me before I die of hunger. Twenty minutes (and a half eaten slice of oreo cheesecake) later, I was full, I was happy, and I didn't feel blue anymore. As I got up to leave, I spotted some cute little cupcakes by the counter, but as I had already filled myself up, I decided against getting them and loosened my belt.

I wanted to pay with my card as I didn't have any cash on me, but the waitress (who from the expressions on her face, probably thought she was some sort of princess or diva) didn't have a pen for me to sign the slip. I said "eshda3wa 3aad", and she raised her eyebrow, so I said "it's Okay as I went to search for the nearest ATM to reload my wallet with cash.

As I stepped outside into the light of the sun, I saw a cat in the garden chasing a butterfly, totally entangled in the chase, and purring as it missed the butterfly that effortlessly flew away every time. N.eway, I was about to cross the road when some guy swerved off from the fast lane and almost hit me (probably Saudi?), and screamed "get out of my way!" as he drove off. Ah yes, that's just what humanity has become; a monster. This person was just another icon in the diary of man, showing how low we've come. 'Garbage', is what I call this tome in the chronicles of mankind.

Semaj, sorry, I really didn't know how to add you here!

If yours isn't here yet, don't worry, i'm adding them. Slowly.

Want to speed up the process? Or add yours? Contact me:
