Toolset Lunch

So today’s lunch was inspired by OTGS’ Toolset: a simple Pasta e Fagioli

That’s the Italian cuisine for you: simple ingredients that make for a great dish. And we love having all the tools and ingredients at our fingertips, don’t we!

I picked 70gr of my favorite pasta from the cupboard,  put that in salted boiling water for 8 minutes. Drained the water and added a couple of tablespoons of Ragù we made on Monday. Then a couple of tablespoons of baked beans (also prepared in batch last week). Stir for 5 minutes to get the right temperature, and voilà!

Honestly, how hard can it be to make a good meal and enjoy it. All in under 20 minutes. And I had the time to clean the dishes and write this blog too!

Where Are They? Fairuz

For some reason whenever I hear this song I have the feeling I’m in a very morbid Doctor Who episode. Here’s my rough translation …

وينن وينن Where are they now?
وين صواتن وين وجوهن وينن Where are their voices, their faces? Where are they?
صار في وادي بيني وبينن There’s a valley between me and them, where are they?
وينن
ركبوا عربيات الوقت وهربوا للنسيان They rode the chariots of time and ran away to oblivion
وتركوا ضحكات ولادن منسية ع الحيطان and left the laughs of their children forgotten on the walls
تركولي المفاتيح they left me the keys
تركوا صوت الريح they left me the sound of the wind
وراحوا ما تركوا عنوان but they did not leave an address
وينن
عشاق الطرقات أفترقوا لا حكى لا مواعيد the lovers of the road left each other without speaking or appointments
أنا وحدى صوت الشوارع أنا طير القرميد I’m alone am the sound of the streets, I am the bird in the brick roofs
هربت بهالليل من مربط هالخيل I ran away in the night from the horse barn
وأنا قنديل الحزن الوحيد I am the lonely lamp of sorrow…

Spamming in Lebanon

I just received an email from BLOM Bank Lebanon spamvertizing some new service they are offering (not even bothering to check what it is).

I tried to send a complaint through their site and got a website debug error. Very professional indeed! That’s the quality assurance you get from the largest bank in Lebanon. Yay!
