Yay, first one to comment!

a baby or twelve? have them as in have them or have them as in adopt them? Blonde's not so nice -no offence- I mean, you've got all these horrible jokes told about blondes..

What do you mean you can't tell a joke?

Ms.Baker said...


Ah, dark chocolate, kids, the sea, أفاا , and guys with a sense of humor...

Yup, I can definitely relate to those :)

Allah ya36eech il-babies soon inshallah :) bes I will wish you only 3-4 not 12, otherwise you will have to go grey, not blonde....and bankrupt too, LOL!

MsB, who is full of admiration for you :)

صمت القصور – مفيدة التلاتلي

A wonderful movie :)

Bu 6ubar said...

lets see..
Pursue painting and Japan's on me. No. 5 of things you can't do and things you say are very true. And the "him" should link your readers to my picture instead of that loser Ferrel.

Hello Scarlo,
'Have' as in conceive and deliver :)..
I don't think adoption is an option here.

And my jokes never come out funny..

I translated the lyrics of a Brazilian song, and turns out that 'Madrugada' = dawn..or shurooq.

Just thought I'd pass by, sound intellectual, and pass the knowledge.

I'll now leave quietly.

Shurouq said...

Madrugada al magrooda
How about that for a nick name?
