The List

Catching up with movies is probably THE BEST activity I can think of for the upcoming weekend/holiday that will start on Thursday 25th of February till Monday 1st of March :> The initial list "more will be added later" is as follows:

The last two I have seen before, I go back to "as good as it gets" to remember that there must be something(s) nice in the worst people you can ever meet :} and "you've got mail" to remember the age where e-mail was revolutionary, anonymity allowed two people on the opposite sides to unbiasedly see each other, that there are tolerable differences we can live with, and that we can virtually pass over and see the beauty in each other :}

Hello and As-salam(u) 3aleykum,
My name is Jon Nichols and I am working in the UAE in the field of teaching and linguistics. I am currently studying a phenomenon known as Arabish (also known as Chat Arabic). The objective of this study is to examine the discourse of Arabish as it is used in Arabic blogs.
Should you choose to answer my questions below about you and your writing, I can assure you that your responses will be anonymous and cannot be linked back to you in anyway.
By replying to my survey, you agree to allow me to use your data and/or quotations (anonymously) for publication.

Thank you very much for this very important study on the changing face of English and Arabic.

The only 2 reasons that I published your comment is that you are a teacher and the aim from it is for educational purposes! I usually do not publish comments with irrelevant subjects to the blog posts :] I would have preferred an E-mail or if you posted about it in your blog and promoted it. May people who are "anonymously" interested to help you go for it
