You win some.. you lose some.

Check out

So we lost. It truely was a heartwrenching sensation. For little short of 90 minutes we were the better team.. and the other team was BRAZILIAN. That in itself is an accomplishment.

The boys played their hearts out and made us proud. I'm standing tall, I'm a fan of a great club who can stand their ground.

Fatal error in the first half gives them a 1-0 lead. We practically handed that 17 year old the ball. Did you notice him in the second half, the whole bit about bouncing the ball as he ran down the sideline. Amazing skill!! Boy wants a contract to play in Europe, somebody sign him.

After their goal we kinda went crazy, we had nothing to loose and tried hard. I could swear that the post moved to block Treika's shot. I couldn't believe when the goaly reached ElNahass's rocket.

Then .... in the second half.. Flavio SCOOOOORES. We jump to our feet, it felt like being in the stadium. Fans went wild. We were back in the game. I honestly believed we could win it. Alas, the winds don't always blow in directions favourable to the sailor's ships (arab poetry translated).

We fought well, and live to fight another day.

I want to scream !

I really do. I have a wedding this Friday in Alexandria. So two weeks ago I set out on a mission to find a dress. After going store after store and trying on dress after the other I had given up. There was no time to do something from scratch. One of the stores offers to redo a model in my size.

I was skeptic but given time limitations I said what the hell. I went in for a rehearsel a week later and the dress was tight so we agreed they'd adjust sizes before beading. Then I went to pick it up yesterday.. it was loose where it was tight and tight were it was loose. They completely messed up a perfectly simple model.

Now there is no time to fix it, dress is already beaded so size adjustments are not preferred. I hate them. They did a shoddy job of it and it looks nothing like the original. Now I'm still stuck with nothing to wear. Aaaaaaaarrrrrggggggggh.

Succeed.. or DIE TRYING

Some of my friends found this clip depressive. They viewed it as suicide and hence found it sad. I beg to differ. To me this clip is quite inspirational, a testimony to the power of the dream. Dream big, work on making those dreams come true, succeed or die trying. This little bird sure did. The tears in the eyes.. that is finding Nirvana.

Tell me what you thought.
