Mubarak is not DEAD

There has been a lot of hype concerning the rumor of Mubarak's death . Bloggers wrote about it , the government issued a denial after denial , even pressing charges against the editor in chief of a newspaper for publishing it and there was even a facebook group discussing it (You know it's big when they have a facebook group for it). A whole lot of bullshit if you ask me. 

You want to know when you will know that Mubarak is dead? When one of the following 3 things happen:

1) You hear gunshots on the streets.

2) The area surrounding Heliopolis will go under military clampdown with martial law declared and a curfew until the power struggle that will ensue ends.*

3) You will find Gamal Mubarak on the street on his ass, with all of his entourage gone, unable to hail a taxi cab for himself .** 

When any of those 3 things happen, let me know. Otherwise, just wait till the man dies like we are all doing. Don't run around spreading false hope. That's just cruel, man!  

*This is why I moved to Zamalek. This way, if the shit hits the fan and the country descends into Chaos, us zamalekites will blow up the bridges and have all of you fuckers fend for yourselves. Muhahaha..

**That is, of course, in case Mubarak dies before entrenching Gamal in Power, which would be proof that God doesn't enjoy watching us being miserable. But then again, there is reality…

Where do we go from here?

You know, I had plans to revive this blog on august first. I was going to update you all about what happened in the previous 3 months and what's I am involved with now. Low and Behold, my Grandmother dies that day, which unleashes a series of unpredictable events which consequences I still haven't even processed till this day. But nevermind all that.

 The question that has faced me ever since I've written my past post has been: Can you go back to blogging again after this post? Is that even possible?

Well, I guess not without an interjectional post, which is what this is.

The Blogging will be lite, and it will take some time to find my voice again, so bear with me.
