as the world turns

people in egypt are revolting ... trying to pull off a tunisia ... personally i don't see it happening ... egypt is too sensitive ... for the west ... for israel ... for other arab countries ... but i pray that it does ... but i don't know ... anyway it's interesting to follow ...
meanwhile here in jeddah people tried to protest on friday ... it was a small protest ... to express unhappiness with the poor infrastructure which allows these floods to happen ... but it failed ... shut down immediately ... ah the rain ... it's beaten me three times in the past month ... first it ruined my engine ... then it forced me to cancel my road trip to makka ... and most recently it forced my friend to postpone his trip here ... he was supposed to come on wednesday ... but it rained that day and i told him he had two choices ... reschedule or cancel ... anyway ... they say another storm is coming ... next week supposedly ... and they say it's going to be worse than the last one ... there's still a lot of water in the streets ... i went for a cruise yesterday and i regretted every second of it ... there's also a lot of potholes ... really starting to hate rain ... i used to love it ...
moving on ... nothing to else to talk about really ... those are pretty much the two main issues going on these days ... in my world anyway ... well there is one more thing ... which brings me to my song ... dedicated to my mama who has not been feeling so well lately ... i actually have the instrumental of this song as a ringtone for my mom ...

Oooh salamthaaa hope she feels better soon :(

My mom's ring tone is Fairuz's allah ma3ak ya hawana, it fits the melancholy of her being away in another country!!

About Egypt...It's really unpredictable..the west or Israel or the other Arab regimes don't have a say in this...it's up to the people now and I don't think that they will quit.
