How to get a Hawt post on wordpress.

July 12, 2009

I have been asking myself that same question for quite some time now.

Is it the avatar?  – no because someone this morning didn’t have one.

Is it the title? Do you need a number in it? A question? A symbol? -no

One particular blogger is a regular Hawt post ( he of the meteorological updates and moustache)- so is it a moustache that gets it? Or is he actually Mr WordPress?

Is it that we ( merely featured pos holders) blog about past news but the Hawt poster blogs new info, as yet unseen on the net? Maybe.

OK- so here is something new,in this age of anti skin cancer sunbathing self tan remedies……. red henna powder, named ‘dam gazal’ ( deer’s blood) in Arabic mixed with turmeric and a drop of water , rubbed over the skin and left for an hour or so before being washed off gives a glorious golden warm tan….but if you rub it on your nails, it turns purple.

Am I Hawt now?? Aha…maybe you aren’t allowed to use coloured fonts……..aha, no I’ve missed again.

Goodnight

July 11, 2009

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

BA flight goes up in smoke

July 11, 2009

 

It seems it isn’t only the Air France jets we have to worry about these days……maybe BA should be offering danger money for flying with them instead of demanding staff take pay cuts? Or was it just that the captain fancied a sly fag before take off? Hundreds of people aboard the British Airways jet were evacuated just before take-off after reports of smoke in the cabin. We reported smoke on an Al Jazeera flight last week and the air steward just winked……..

The Heathrow-bound Boeing 747 had pushed back from the departure gate at Phoenix Airport , US, when the fumes were seen.The pilot promptly decided to evacuate all 298 passengers on board using the emergency slides.

Wheeheee! What a rush- getting to use the emergency slides when there isn’t really an emergency!! Come on now, hands up who really wants to try that? The brother in law of a friend of mine was training to be a Kuwait Airways steward some years ago….tempted beyond description, young A**** couldn’t resist pushing some button to let the slides go when the plane was on the ground and they were practising ( so the story goes). He got into big trouble…and is, by the way, no longer working for Kuwait Airways …….

There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

sex, maths and rock’n’roll

July 10, 2009

”Conservatives say teaching sex education in the public schools will promote promiscuity. With our education system? If we promote promiscuity the same way we promote math or science, they’ve got nothing to worry about.”

 

Breakfast, they say.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The difference between ‘involvement’ and ‘commitment’ is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was ‘involved’ – the pig was ‘committed’.”

Expat Women drinking too much

July 10, 2009

Just found this on a blog called ‘Expat Women”- confessions. I remember having the same problem a few years back when I lived in a wine swilling country…….my advice, come to Kuwait! Mind you I think there are a few too many ethaholics here too.

”I live in Athens, Greece, and I think I am an alcoholic.  I am spending more and more nights drinking.  I find myself choosing unimportant evening social functions (through my job with the foreign service here) over getting home and spending time with my family.  I will literally spend a few hours on Monday morning planning my evening functions for the week, based primarily on which function will be serving the most alcohol and which function is likely to last the longest.  It has been going on for some time now and because of my position in the community, it was not until I saw your website that I felt comfortable and anonymous enough to ask for help.  This was also fuelled by a huge argument I had with my husband last weekend, which ended in him accusing me of being an alcoholic and threatening to take our three children and move home.   I am beside myself, at a total loss and more shocked at how it has come to this. Before this posting, I had never been a big drinker and in fact I counselled two women in our previous posting who were drinking to cover up a miserable marriage.  How could I be so blind as to not see that this interest in socialising is what is happening to me?  I could really use some advice right now.”
