The "Jude Law and Sienna Miller" story

Ok I know I said I won't write about movie star gossip but this is just cracking me up.

For those who don't know who those people are, well aparrently you've been living under a rock. In the past months there wasn't a movie where Jude Law wasn't in. He is bette know for his parts in "The road to perdition" for which he was nominated for an oscar for best supporting actor and "cold mountain".
Anyway he and Sienna (who is also an actress) met on the se of "Alfie", and immediately fell in love. They announced their engagement last Christmas.

So far nothing is funny. But, he cheated, with his kid's nanny...

The Mirror says it all.
"The Sunday Mirror revealed how Daisy was sacked after one of Jude's children told their mum Sadie Frost - his former wife - they had found their dad in bed with the nanny. Jude seduced Daisy in New Orleans in March and the nanny was first questioned about their month-long affair by Sadie's PA in June. Daisy denied it to Sadie in a call.

But she was soon told she was no longer needed as Sadie had decided someone older should take over, following a misunderstanding about weekend arrangements.

Daisy was employed last August to look after Rafferty, eight, Iris, four, and two-year-old Rudy. She claimed her affair with Jude began the day after she arrived with one of his children in America, where he was filming the movie All The King's Men. Sienna had just flown back to Britain after visiting him. Daisy's diary of the affair included details of sex on a pool table - just like a scene from Jude's film Alfie.

Jude first seduced Daisy when they returned to his house in New Orleans after a concert.

In her diary, she wrote how Jude asked her to visit him in bed if she "felt lonely". She added: "We kissed and kissed for what seemed like ages. I was thinking 'I cannot believe this. Jude Law is snogging me'.

"The next thing I know, we are dragging each other upstairs to his bedroom, kissing and then, in the bedroom, ripping off each other's clothes."

At dawn one of Jude's children caught the couple in bed. Repeated efforts to contact a spokesman for Jude went unanswered yesterday."

The fact that's it funny because he's an idiot. You should see how Sienna looks and how Daisy (the nanny) looks. This only proves that men bey7ebo yeramramo.

There are rumors now that Sienna is cosing up to Orlando Bloom. You go girl. Show that man that no matter how cute, adorable and super handsome he is that he can be dumped and left broken hearted.

Eddie Grant

Nile fm has a show that's called "Club Mercedes". It's a dance music program. And although I'm no fan of dance music I listen to it every week.
Why? Because of Eddie it's presenter. He has the sexiest voice I've ever heard. You know, this deep, manly voice. And he has a british accent.

Call me superficial, but english accents turn me on. Yeah I'm like those dumb american girls in "love actually" that sit amazed when the english guy says straw.
I don't know but I can sit for 2 hours listening to dumb songs just to listen to a glimpse of his voice after every couple of tracks.

I'm in desperate need of a boyfriend, right?
It would be better if he was english, thought

All hail.... Physics?!

Since I was a little kid, I loved math and physics. Never knew why but never had any trouble studying them and getting full marks.
That's why probably I ended up in engineering (which turned out to be a disaster, but that's not the subject).

Inever understood why I loved maths. Especially algebra. I LOVED to study it. I'd stay up from almost 11pm till almost 3 or 4 am solving maths. I have my favourite music on, I'm in my comfortable chair and I just solve and solve.

The most amazing thing about maths is how it rationalize your thinking. You have to analyze the problem, then decide which rule to begin with. As you progress in your solving you might use other rules, maybe they're ones you learned a few days ago or maybe they're ones you learned years ago. You never forget a rule. The problem starts to be solved and you see how beautiful it is to reach the answer, to let it unfold using nothing but your brain.

I remember when a problem was too hard to solve, or when I just couldn't get it's idea. I would go to sleep and dream about the answer. Yes I swear I dreamt not just once about my maths homework. Which rule to use, which step did I do wrong.
I would get up, run to my books, scribble the answer and get back to sleep.
I loved maths because it made me feel special, strong and capable of solving my problems.

But physics. That's another story. Physics is the science that explains everything, and because I'm an extremely nosy and curious person; I loved it.
I'm not afraid of flying because I know the rules of physics with which planes fly. I love my car because I know how she moves, and what happens when I shift the gear. I love my cell phone because, although I don'rt know much about electronics, I understand the concept.

I love physics because it explains how the world goes round. How we move and how we do everything in our lives.

I never loved chemisty because it delt with tiny things that did not interest me. And I never loved biology coz it had too many complicated Latin words and my memory in names is zero.

As a matter of fact if I wasn't a believer in God, I would have worshiped physics.

The sunflower story

One of the things that always got my attention was greek mythology.
How they had an explenation for evetything they saw. And how they had a god for every little detail in their lives. How they have been able to humanize their gods, make them love, hate, lust, betray,...

But the story that I loved the most was the sunflower story.

So there was the god of the sun, helios, he rode his golden carriage every day carrying the sun. He made his trip acreoss the sky from dawn untill sunset. He was, like most greek gods, very handsome, very glorius and very easy to fall in love with.
And that's what happened to this girl (can't remember her name). She fell in love with the sun god. She used to sit everyday watching him as he made his trip, from sun rise till sun down. Everyday, without trying to get his attention, without him knowing that there was a mortal down there madly in love with him.
But the other gods were watching. Zeus in particular. Who was a no stranger to love. He took pity on her. And decided that she will never loose sight of her lover.
So he turned her into a sunflower. Watching the sun everyday from sun rise till sun set, moving with its lover. And when night falls, she closes herself waiting for the next day till she sees her eternal love.

Amaizing isn't it? I wonder how they had such vast immagination and creativity.
And how most every myth revolves around love. Love lost, love found.
Simply beautiful

Les feuilles mortes

Jaques Prévert a composé une des plus jolies poèmes de l'amour perdu. Des sentiments d'un amants après avoir accepté le depart de sa bien aimée. Ce poème m'a vraiment touché.

Oh ! je voudrais tant que tu te souviennes
Des jours heureux où nous étions amis.
En ce temps-là la vie était plus belle,
Et le soleil plus brûlant qu'aujourd'hui.
Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle.
Tu vois, je n'ai pas oublié...
Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle,
Les souvenirs et les regrets aussi
Et le vent du nord les emporte
Dans la nuit froide de l'oubli.
Tu vois, je n'ai pas oublié
La chanson que tu me chantais.
C'est une chanson qui nous ressemble.
Toi, tu m'aimais et je t'aimais
Et nous vivions tous deux ensemble,
Toi qui m'aimais, moi qui t'aimais.
Mais la vie sépare ceux qui s'aiment,
Tout doucement, sans faire de bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable
Les pas des amants désunis.
Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle,
Les souvenirs et les regrets aussi
Mais mon amour silencieux et fidèle
Sourit toujours et remercie la vie.
Je t'aimais tant, tu étais si jolie.
Comment veux-tu que je t'oublie ?
En ce temps-là, la vie était plus belle
Et le soleil plus brûlant qu'aujourd'hui.
Tu étais ma plus douce amie
Mais je n'ai que faire des regrets
Et la chanson que tu chantais,
Toujours, toujours je l'entendrai !

Things that make me cry

I was watching a movie today and in the middle of it one of the characters died. At his funeral all the other characters started singing his favorite song. And it made me cry.
And all this made me wonder am I someone who cries easily? And what things make me cry?

I cry when I see my little nephew sad. I cried at my birthday surprise party because I never thought that my friends would care enough to put up one. I cry when I watch a sad romantic movie where someone dies in the end. I cried when my ex boyfriend said that he hoped he would die. I cry when I hurt my mom and when I get mad at my dad. I cried at my sister's wedding and I cried when Sirius Black died in Harry Potter.

My mom used to call me Amina rezk for being a dramaqueen and capable of bringing sadness to myself. I always thought I was just super sensitive, now I know I hide behind my tears. I'm afraid that all the events that happened in my life took away my feelings. I use my tears as a defense mechanism against the world. But I hardly ever cry after a break up, I see it as weakness, surrender and lost feelings that won't return my broken relation back.

Tears of sorrow, of sadness of happiness; I've experienced them all. And I believe that it is our emotions that make us humans, that they separate us from animals and angels alike. And for me the best manifestation of emotions are a tear and a smile

But smiles will be discussed later.

Sharm recovery

Seeing pictures of the aftermath of those bombing in Sharm just breaks my heart.
Bodies in the street, blood everywhere, destruction and pure sadness.

But we must not give up, we must not give those murdururs a chance to think that they are victorious. We must encourage tourism in that little piece of heaven on earth.
So come on get your bikinis and let's spend a few days in sharm. But don't forget your sun protection coz it it HOT there these days.

Another thought that occured to me is to have a benifit concert, with stars from all over the Arab world. You know; Amr Diab, Mohamed Mounir, Nancy Agram, etc.... it's gonna be a chance to raise money for a fund for the victim's families (who have very sob stories about one of those dead was the only providor for a family of 6. So what 5000 pound will do for them?).
And also to send a clear message to the alqua3da and their supportes elly me7aramin 3alena 3eshetna that we are stong with our compassion, our solidarity and our arts. And No one will ever take that away from us.

I'm very excited about this suggestion and I am willing to work on organizing such an event but I hope other people will be excited too and get the stars, the copamies and the government on board.

Harry Potter

I admit that I've been touched by the Harry Potter madness.
Although I'm legally an adult, but I have enjoyed becoming a child again when reading these books.
Come on, how can someone not fall in love with that magical series of books? Where there are real life stories. About life and death, good and evil all wrapped in a magical atmosphere of imagination.

Sometimes I wonder how the author

J.K.Rowling thought of all of this. where di she come up with Hogwarts, Valdemort, Griffindor, the talking portraits, the moving stairs, the unicorns, defence against black magic,..... tons of things that I enjoy and wonder "How the hell did she think of them?"

I read all the books, seen all the movies even played the game
So I can't wait untill I read the newest installation.

I remember that after reading the third one my imagination just went wild I dreamed of flying brooms and moving beds (maybe it had to do with the movie "bedknobs and broomsticks" which is an old Disney movie about magic in England during WWII)
and untill now I remember some of the spells, some of the potions and the quiddich rules (for those who don't know quiddich it's a wizard game played over flying brumes and it has more than one ball and the team is divided into tiny teams each trying to get a certain ball)

I know that I might sound like a geek. But untill you read it and experience travelling with your imagination you won't understand why I'm so fired up about a children's book

First Post

Oh my God!!!!!!
How can you start talking on the world wide web?
With so many events going on in the world, mostly sad and heart breaking; it's hard to start gossiping.
And no I don't mean gossiping about Tom an Katie or Lindsay's eating disorder (thought I'd like to know her diet).

I think that gossiping is having this small talk about anything and anyone in your life. Like the fact that I got my exam results today. I have been loosing sleep and thought only of the worst for the past week, give or take, but I passed. No As but still I am a student in one of Egypt's most difficult engineering universities and passing in Ain Shams= a B in other universities.

It was very crowded, and because I'm a tiny girl I would have never been able to get in. So A. whom I hardly know volunteered to get into the raging crowds and get me my results. Sometimes I feel like noble people still exist. They're rare but they're there, you just have to look harder.

So how is this as a first post? Better ones will come I hope.
