From here & there (pictures of today's morning)

Thursday the 23rd of Dec. 2004


**The cat that shared breakfast with me & my sister...



** Waved goodbye to the cat after we left, the cute thing kept looking at us till we moved away...



**Books heaven @ Al-Muthana complex to look for "THE" book...



*After trying to find it on my own, I asked one of the workers & here it was @@ right on the floor next to me 10 seconds ago!, I crossed by it but really didn't see it since it is a crowded place ;p...



**Finally got it, The Five People You Meet In Heaven recommended by Misguided who really made me look for it all around to get it,, will review it as soon as am done with it...



Of course my day didn't end with that @@, had a busy full schedule in the afternoon till early night time.. Now its time to relax & get ready for a big day tomorrow where I would be spending most of my time on the PC to work...

I finished reading it in a day and a half, it was such an easy read and comfortable one as well, that I think you will enjoy it alot.. It's touching though

oooh I love the kitten...it reminded me of Bu S3ayed (my cat) when he was a baby.
aah Muthana...I used to go there all the time for Birkenstock and the bookstore.
You know I wish they have Barnes and Noble or Borders (they are huge chain of book stores in the states with a nice coffee shop) do you think having stores like that in Kuwait would be successful?

> That cat looks like the cat which often comes to our house.
> I love the bookstore at Almuthana, but they don't have good collection of Space books :(

Don't forget to feed a hungry cat when ever you can :}.

Jackie,

With your opinion too am even more excited to read it, the bad news is I cant right now since I have to give all my time for work :(

Q80-Chill Girl said...

LOL Bo S3ayed! Why this name :D… Oo Yes it was a very cute cat although it looked tired the poor thing.
I remember my brother going to Al=Muthana a lot for this remote-controlled car that he & his friends used to races against each other with.
About the big book/ coffee shop idea in Kuwait, I think it might work since it’s a new idea although virgin mega store had a coffee shop inside but I NEVER saw a Kuwaiti read a book in public & enjoy a coffee cup there :}, I sometimes escape to a coffee shop in the free trade zone to read a book away from the silly looks & ideas that gather around u thinking you are bragging. Although it might sound like a big failure since Kuwaiti people aren’t much of readers but I would love to have it here & think it will by time grow its own community provided that it would have a massive collection of books to suit all interests.

Maryam,

Yes it is very nice there, am sorry about the space books thing I think it could be because of the lack of interests Kuwaiti readers have about this issue! Maybe… but hey you can always rely on our dearest network "the internet"

Q8CG, I did on Friday :)

The Truth said...

I really hope you like it....I am amazed that you actually went out and got it like you said you would..(I guess I shouldn't be)... I think te Borders idea will fail miserably..Just because most people in Kuwait won't be spending time reading...

We are a Roudy and Noisy bunch...A video game arcade would work but not a bookstore..

Q80-Chill Girl said...

P72,

I've always said that ur a good guy :}

Q80-Chill Girl said...

Misguided,

your probably right :( it might not work but i really wish it was avilable here & that ppl wont look to public book readers as freaks

The Truth said...

I thought you told me once that i shouldn't try to please everybody....

I hope you don't care what others think...Especially people in the street who really don't know you..

It is really funny how we are very concious about how total strangers percieve us...(I couldn't care less)...

Q80-Chill Girl said...

Dear Misguided :}

WELL ur right :} i think its impossible to please every one, am not shy of reading in public because of the look people give me rather than the fact that thoes ppl are a part of us, hence there is something wrong in the comunity because there is nothing wrong with reading in public,, the catch is IF we have such a place to read ppl might accept it more & more .. I tend to do what I believe is right regardless of other ppl's oppinions but sometimes you realize that you live among thoes ppl instead of fighting their believes the traditional way drag them into what u think to be right & then let them compare & decide. And you are right :) i shouldn't care less about the ppl in the stret who know NOTHING about who I really am.
