The Sisters. The Lebanese Kardashians. The Epitome of Silliness. The Reason You Want to Slit Your Wrists. #YouAreNotAlone

I don’t know how many brain cells I have, but I am sure that almost 100,000,000 brain cells have been killed yesterday. I did the mistake of watching The Sisters. Why? Because I was bored and I really had some time on my hands. We all heard so much about it and I couldn’t have missed it.

I find it really weird that it is timed so close to Women’s Day. How ironic that these women represent our society. 3 of the most self-centered, personality lacking, no-cultured, low IQ-ed, spoiled rich girls of the Lebanese community.

While women all over the world have struggled to make a place for themselves, to celebrate respect and women achievements, Alice, Nadine and Farah portray a version of women that wrecks all the efforts of great female figures. Sorry ‎Margaret Thatcher, ‎Malala Yousafzai, Audrey Hepburn, Benazir Bhutto, Maya Angelo, Bronte Sister, and the list goes on.

How are we supposed to be respected and appreciated while we see 3 plastic women, showered with money and free clothes (I didn’t know that) share with us their daily meaningless stupid lives. I don’t care whether they go to the gym, and how they fight and how they shop and takes photo-shoots.

But anyways, let’s meet the lovely cast:

  • Alice: the eldest sister, bossy and pushy and has this annoying way of speaking. Also scary on close-ups.

  • Nadine: Also self-centered and silly, but has a bit of sense of humor.

Dancing with the Stars Episode 2 Review. The drama continues. Carla still says the darnedest things!

I had to go out to a birthday celebration last night (Thank you Mavis, I enjoyed it), and was bombarded with messages and notes asking about my comments on Dancing with the Stars. So, I stayed up late last night to watch the re-run and give it to you. As usual the show didn’t disappoint me. The drama continued, and here are my highlights:

1. Kif we2feen sha3rato la mike Boladian? Ana baddi. Mike

2. Reine Ashkar, with a Samba that looked more like oriental dancing than anything else. Which reminds I don’t even know who she is. What does she do again?

3. Anthony and Chole’s beautiful dance.

4. Darren was even more handsome last night. Was it that bowtie? Or the slight tan? I have no idea. But that man is too cute. dareen 2 Continue reading

5 men I was supposed to marry in 2014!

At the risk of sounding extremely redundant, the life of a single late 20s girl becomes completely concentrated around finding a husband, until she actually gets married or dies for that matter.

So if you are a single girl and you haven’t married yet or died, men will be shoved in your face or you will be displayed for men. It is of course worse for a Druze girl; because automatically all non-Druze men will either run away from you or treat you like a temporary breeze of fun.

While eligible Druze men are a gem, a rare phenomenon, a shooting star you are probably doomed. So when your friends push you onto someone, they expect you to jump at the opportunity. If you don’t go for it, then you’re a negative person who isn’t grabbing life by the horns and you also don’t appreciate your friend’s help.

So you see, we are forced into meeting these men under the headline of “I am ready to get married, if you like me, take me!” Regardless if you we want to get married or not.

Being your average Druze girl next door, I had my fair share of set-ups; mostly during 2014. I think because to everyone, I am starting to become more desperate the closer I get to 30. The age of the devil.

I am taking this space to share with you the list of top 5 highlight dates, maybe next time you want to set me up, you will pity me and spare me.

  1. Marwan, The Garbage enthusiast:
  • I am sure it is not entirely his fault. But it so happened that our conversation started about a certain “Garbage Dump” in Lebanon and him taking part in that cause. Let me point out that it was prior to lunch so you should know the effect of that conversation on my mood. I feel bad about saying that, maybe it was worse for him. But honestly, I can’t remember anything else of that 2 hour conversation. The garbage thing was just too much for me to handle.

  1. Sami, The Interrogator:
  • The thing is, you might feel like I am exaggerating with this tag. But I am not. We sat for coffee, and then he started his questions. Why aren’t you married yet? How many kids do you want? Do you want to quit your job to take care of the family? When do you want to get married? Does the wedding have to happen in your hometown? Do you know how to cook and are you willing to learn the “mjadre”? I wanted to stab him in the face and ask him do you know that you are an idiot and are you willing to shut up? AND trust me he wasn’t as good looking as this guy:

  1. Tarek, The Grandpa:
  • He turned out to be 50, and has no idea what a young spirit is. Need I say more? And yes I stopped speaking to that friend I can assure you.

Dancing with the Stars, returns! And so does my over-dramatic Review!

11034315_559336237539762_357519084932268442_n

Dancing with the Stars is back on MTV and I enjoyed last night’s first episode of the first season. Absolutely love MTV’s production quality and creativity.

It included a great lineup of celebrities, cute couples, nice music and I especially enjoyed the graphics and editing.

I spent quite some time with a few statuses on Facebook and Twitter. But I would also like to share a few highlights from last night’s episode, for everyone who has missed it:

1. Rony Fahed. This guy is too cute! With Grey hair and they way he can shake that waist! And and he’s not dumb! Imagine that. Might replace that Elie Stephan crush. But still too early to tell.

Roni

2. Carla couldn’t count four 5s and said 30 instead of 20. Next time she should be allowed to count on her fingers or use a calculator. Leish la2.

3. Wissam and how he makes all of Carla’s jokes less lame and less cliché every single time. This guy is not only Charismatic but also witty and in control. I absolutely love him and his hosting skills.

Post Snow-Weekend Rant: Ridiculous Shit Lebanese Did on the Snow Slopes.

So the snow season is great this year, thankfully, and half the Lebanese population hit the ski slopes over the weekend. While many enjoyed playing their favorite winter sports, others spent it with the families.

Mountains-Snow-Ski-Board-People

But, a lovely chunk of the Lebanese Society had different purposes in mind, and they weren’t afraid to show us all over the social media. Here it is folks, the highlights:

1. The lovely rich, airheads and wannabes of the Fashionable Lebanese scene or as they would like to refer to themselves: The Fashionistas. Full make-up, cleavage still showing from under a million layers of fake fur, taking selfies and duck face pictures with the girls.

2. The unattractive Lebanese loaded and pretending-to-be-loaded macho-man with cigar in mouth, taking endless photos biting that thing wile sipping whiskey, and worse off posting those photos online as if that is the most natural thing on earth.

3. The poor people who fell, hit a pole, bumped into other people, and decided to post pictures of the First aid carrying them out, their broken leg and all the pain that they endured. Thank you for sharing.

Post Valentine Rant: 7 most annoying Valentine habits

0c191618db7a51e1298c6784d11be8ec

Now that Valentine is over, thank God, I would like to take a few moments to share with you some thoughts on the most annoying things that took place over the weekend. Many would say that I am being cynical because I don’t believe in love or aren’t in love. I can assure you I am in love every single day. But love isn’t about all those manifestations. It is supposed to be sweet and touching. Here are the top 7 annoying manifestations of Valentine on social media:

  1. You are not allowed to post a million pictures with you and your loved one. We really don’t want to see you in all poses on this lovely occasion. We see you every day and this occasion shouldn’t be any special. One picture is enough, two max if one of you proposed!
  1. Say no to Teddy Bears, especially if they are red. Teddy Bears are so 90s and you’re not allowed to gift them if you over 21 years old; let alone over 30.
  1. I know that red is the theme of the occasion, but please don’t dress yourself in red from head to toe and worse, dress your hubby. I hate red to start with, and my eyes are bleeding as I scroll down my newsfeed. Spare us please.
