    "Top blog/Renato Obeid's World/Today's pick: This rambling weblog is worth reading not so much for its satirical posts but more for its insight into the minutiae of life in Lebanon, including the etiquette of road accidents and how to hire a taxi.” -Jane Perrone, The Guardian

    FROM : Nathaniel Harb (see "comments").
    No indication of where Nathaniel's' writing from but his first name sounds to me like that of some African-American on death row.
    Seriously though, thanks for making the effort to write in and thanks for your appreciation and support Nathaniel.
    Knowing that I have discerning readers like yourself compels me to improve the quality of my writing (starting tomorrow though – inshallah).

    As for quantity (Nathaniel mentions that he'd like to see more of my writing), what you see at the top here is only the tip of the iceberg.
    Whilst that tip might appear frozen at times, there's a lot happening beneath the surface – working to edit and transcribe ten torturous hours of dictaphone tapes (the tapes of wrath), I'm constantly adding to the archives (these "new" entries go straight to the archives as chronology dictates).
    It's a titanic task not made any easier by the latest Windows 98.2 program I've just installed which now enables me to write* in bold, italics and even bold italics.
    What will they think of next?
    So I know have to go thru my entire "oeuvre" and insert bold, italics and even bold italics where appropriate.
    But, the iceberg always wins in the end!
    I hope you enjoy the new two-tone two-typeface renatoobeidsworld as much as I enjoyed two-toning and two-typefacing it (it looks 3D doesn’t it?).
    It really is fun and, besides, it distracts me (albeit temporarily) from actually writing – avoiding writing is every dilettante writers preoccupation.
    Want to write tomorrow's Letter of the Day?
    It's as easy as clicking on the "comments" link (below left) and adding your comment!

    *I'd previously been able to write these on the computer but not able to transfer them to my fancy-shmancy site which wasn’t compatible with the Windows 98.1 I was using.

    Renatoobeidsworld – now in bold, italics and even bold italics!
