My visa came through! Finally! So was in Dubai. Back now. Had to get a sponsor (a kafeel) felt like the “hired help” awy!Funny thing is my sponsor is a woman and a European who is also a SWF and apparently that’s good enough for the UAE government. Go figure!
Reading “Muhajababes”. I’m not sure I like it, almost done though. The concept itself is quite clever and the title is right on the money. Reading the book I felt like I was reading a documentary film. One with a chaotic plotline and a weak narrarator. She would have done much better with a camera than with a paper and pencil. It’s always interesting to see yourself through the eyes of the other. See Cairo reduced to Amr Khaled, Ahly vs. Zamalek, Hejab vs. Feminism and finally 7araket Kefaya. Upon relaying that view to friends, they agreed with her! I’m not sure I do!
Finally watched The Prestige (see post below about The Illusionist in which commentors told me to go see The Prestige). Good movie, superb ending BUT I still like The Illusionist more! Go figure!
Watched “No Reservations” this Saturday.. all I can say is BLAND!
There wasn’t a single decent movie this Eid!
Finally: If you were an Idlemind fan… a moment in silence in tribute to a great band that is no more.
