Out of Here

In few days I will be leaving Amman.

I am going to miss everything.

I am going to miss my family.
I am going to miss my nephews and my nieces, learning and speaking new words.

I am going to miss ALL my friends, those whom I see on daily basis and those whom I meet by coincidence.
I am going to miss hanging out with all of them.
I am going to miss those who live outside Jordan and might come on vacations while I am not here.

I am going to miss those who "kidnapped" me from Queen Alia Airport in front of everybody when I came back from Germany after spending 3 months over there.

I am going to miss my car.

I am going to miss the coffee place where I used to hang out in Jabal Amman.

I am going to miss Abdo, Adel and Ibrahim from Chili House; Al Dahyeh branch.
I am going to miss Ibrahim; the guy who sells chewing gum at Al Rabiyeh traffic lights.
I am going to miss Muhammed; the guy whom I buy smoke from.

I am going to miss every speed bump and every low manhole after which you drive into you start cursing everything.

I am going to miss Al Rumman hill climb which I used to go to every year.

I am going to miss a lot of things.

I am so in to this country and this country is so in to me.

For Starbucks Coffee Drinkers ولكم استحوا

For those who in spite of everything still go to Starbucks because they can not live without that cup of coffee SHAME ON YOU. (شعب اذا ضرب الحذاء بوجهه صاح الحذاء بأي ذنب أضرب)

Whether you are an Arab or not, whether you are a Muslim or not I assume that you are a human being.

Humans do NOT support killing children, humans do NOT support what "isreal" is doing in Palestine and Lebanon.
Humans refuse to stand up for oppression.

Here is what an Israeli person commented on that on a blog:

I only want to comment on the disparity of opinion between Natasha and ABOUD. As an Israeli, I definitely would inflict my distrustful judgment on my culture, social order, and society if, for an instance, Hezbollah, Syria, or Iran opened a coffee shop in any part of the world and generated profits for their agenda or cause. As an American also, I would undeniably fight to close that coffee shop that is operated by an unfriendly entity. It is not bigotry, it is loyalty. In fact, the US closed hundreds of businesses that were operated by citizens of unfriendly nations. It is normal when citizens put their national duties above all impractical, theoretical, and philosophical intellect. Even though I love Starbucks and fully support their fund-raising events to Israel, I think ABOUD was politically correct.

So for those who are against the resistance and keep talking about the "civilized" way of solving this issue, the least thing you can do is to change your coffee place.


فعلا انو شعب اذا ضرب الحذاء بوجهه صاح الحذاء بأي ذنب أضرب

Mecca Street

You know what's amazing in Mecca street?

It has this holy name and it is crowded with night clubs (low class clubs) , not mentioning the prostitutes than you can see along the street.

So it's either that they move all the night clubs from there (may the taxi drivers forgive us for that) or they change the street's name.

According to Merriam-Webster:
Pronunciation: -"pAst
Function: noun
: a paste for cleaning the teeth

From Wikipedia:
Toothpaste is a paste or gel used to clean and improve the aesthetic appearance and health of teeth

Nobady will use it to clean a single tooth??
So... if it used for cleaning teeth, why do they call it toothpaste, why not teethpaste?
