Date Sarah Carr

September 14, 2011


It is nothing short of criminal that I should come out of blog retirement after a goddamn revolution (well, almost…you know) to write about anything other than police brutality, the vileness of SCAF, etc., but the fact remains I’m just no good at stuff like that, even though I care. I was actually about to resume frivo-blogging when January […]

Sexual harassment: fuck “selmeya”

June 20, 2011


I have to confess, I do not quite see the point of writing this post. So many people have written extensively on the subject of sexual harassment: surveys have been conducted, campaigns and marches undertaken, and even a seemingly-precedent-setting sentence handed down to a harasser. Nevertheless every woman in Egypt still needs to look at […]

Am I ever going to blog again?

April 28, 2009

I’ve never seen a single James Bond or Indiana Jones movie.3. I don’t like Pink Floyd or U2 and I’m not ashamed.4. I enjoy crocheting. I […]

Things fall apart

January 29, 2009


I recently borrowed some “Friends” DVDs from a male friend, who was in disbelief for a few seconds that I was actually asking to borrow them and not ridiculing him. I immediately started watching them back to back, as is my wont, and it struck me: now that I’m 25, I realize my life actually […]
