    "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

    Friday, May 16, 2008  
    Just got back from my second night walk through my ‘’private forest’’.
    I’m beginning to warm to the concept.
    At least it’s close and I save time too (I don’t have to catch a taxi back home) and it takes twenty minutes, which is the recommended time you should walk daily, so it’s shorter than my walks down to Jounieh but still kosher.
    It’s psychologically easier too – at the end of a long day, the thought of having to walk all the way down the mountain is a bit daunting so it’s much easier to contemplate just going for a walk ‘’around the block’’ so to speak.

    On the political front, the war that raged for a couple of days has subsided (for now).
    An Arab League delegation visiting Beirut yesterday secured an agreement from the warring parties that ‘’things would return to the state they were in prior to the events that occurred after May 5, 2008’’
    Far enough, that’s understandable because the state we ‘’were in prior to the events that occurred after May 5th 2008’’ (i.e. eleven days ago) were so f***ing great that we all have to hop into a time machine to take us back to that golden era, that Camelot.
    Weren’t those the very same conditions that lead to the actual fighting?
    What a waste of a time machine.
    If I had a time machine I’d go back in time to Victorian London but the Arab league wants me to go back in time to last Monday week.
    As if that would make any difference anyway.

    People say that I repeat myself (especially when I talk) but I maintain that I’m just ‘’on message’’.
