Aftermath of loooooong day!
Ok so after the eventful morning of my day, I came back home.. I was still full from brunch, so ended up eating yogurt and salad during lunch.
Later in the day we went to a funeral services, got back home and ate some Baskin Robbins (YUMM!) and had some friends over... soon after I took my friend to the airport and let me tell you this! The place was a JUNGLE! I have the worst headache ever! The smell (mix of body odors, smoke, perfumes...etc) and the crowd, the noise, and then out of nowhere I heard some loud cheers and LOUD ululation! Apparently a bride and groom just arrived and people from all over the place were taking pictures with them or congratulating them, like they were some sort of celebrities! I was laughing so hard (which added to my headache!)
So.... as I was heading back home, again I get frustrated with the rage on the road! I keep seeing those guys driving on a steady pace with cars next to them, and when I look in the mirror I know why! I see girls who look like those dancers from "Al Bortaqala Video Clip" Very looong hair, tons of make up with their lips pouting, and lotsa bling bling...
Anyway... enough blabbering and whining! I will write a better post -hopefully- tomorrow :-)
