Hello tweeps of 2011 .. is 2010 over already! phew!
As usual the main indicator of any new year is …
more drama in Lebanese politics! NO! that’s everyday!
the new year always starts with the Predictions!
We predict that nothing new will happen this year!
@trellalb will continue to curse politics
@mich1mich will run #Michcafe as wonderful as ever
@footnem & @krikOrianM will take more great photos
@funkyOzzi will add more wonderful Lebanese blogs to LebanonAggregator.com
@_Archangelus_ will remain anonymous
@naeema will make even more great designs
@Danyawad will run #Pubdany (Happy Hour every tuesday@midnight)
@figo29 will still tweet & blog football!
@LeGustav will continue to have the most drooling sweets in beirut!
and everyone else will contribute to the twitter & blog community just as wonderfully & creatively as they did in 2010.
Another new year indicator! the stars! (horoscopes, not hollywood)
Astrologers decided to finally come out of the closet with “Ophiuchus” (i don’t know who wants to be that anyway!) & so,the twittosphere decides to unanimously dethrone the new horoscope and stick to the old calendar!
On anther note, the cure to procrastination is still unsolved.
Until then Beirut Tweets remains…
In the Days of winter, we’d like to think its due to the extra red-wine being abused to warm up and compensate for the lack of electricity to heat the houses, nights are long and cold, and therefore invite people to spend time entertaining each other “fo2 2a63it il kahraba” (over the power-cut). In the past few days this phenomena translated into twitter to bring you: “Zajjaliyat twitter-ian Nights” featuring: @Danyawad (D) @Emiliehasrouty (E) @BeirutBilArabeh (B) with further participation from the wonderful tweeple in the Audience.
(B) سحَّبت من عمر الزمن خيطان / لونهن من لون شفافها الحمرا / وطرّزت فيهن قبة الفستان / الرح تحترق من تلجة الجمرة / ـ وقلتلها لبسيهن والشمس حدّة / فزعان تكوي الورد المندّي / قالت ما فيها الشمس تكوي شمس / وعن إذنك فساتين ما بدّي / وليلة شربت السحر وتغـّيرت / ودخلت غرفتها من ورا الأحلام / وقرّبت صوب المخدة وصرت / رش الغفا بعيونها تتنام نامت وحلمت حالها حدي / وصارت تطبع جمر عا خدي / وشوخفت يفلت من عيونا الحلم / وتوعى الصبح وتقول ما بدّي ولما عْرِفِتْ ما في أمل يحلا / عنقودها، فتشت عا أحلى / لـِم عرفت العصفور منها طار / من غير وعي من عيونها الكحلى / ـ نزلت دمعة اليا ريت / تسقي الزرار بعروة المريول / وصارت من بعد ما تركتها وفلّيت / تركض ورايي، حافية وتقول /
So if you want these warm nights to continue, pop the Red-Wine bottles at #Pubdany at 10:30 (beirut time) 😉
