2006 revisited

Check out

Looking back at 2006 in a different light.

Best Arabic movie: Aw2at Faragh
Best English movie: Crash
Newcomer of the year: Jannat
Album of the year: Elissa (although not as good as her last).
Most played song: Rob Thomas - Lonely No More
Best outing: Casper and Gambinis terrace

Soccer: Italy won the World Cup (GO CANNAVARO); Ahly kicked ass in Japan and Tunisia, Egypt won the African Cup of Nations, and Chelsea is on fire. Its been a great year for my teams begad.

Things I’d never done before:
Visited Brussels
Sat in a stadium and screamed my lungs out
Started blogging
Owned an Ipod
Had so7our (in Ramadan) at a cafe with friends
Became good friends with complete strangers compliments of the blogging world
Planned weddings and engagement parties and failed to show up to the actual event
Read Harry Potter (so to make up for lost time read them back to back)
Got published
Taught a class (she aced her exam )

On the political arena there’s been so much going on I can’t pinpoint an event that was more important than all others. We’ve had a very unsetteling year in the region. We’ve had local elections, Hizbollah in Lebanon, mass killings in Palestine and Iraq and the year capped off with the execution of Saddam.

What the hell... I'm tagging anybody who reads this and cracks half a smile.
