On this last day of Ramadan, I am blogging from my bed, to change from my desk which resulted in my boss discovering the blog, reading it and promptly blocking it! that'll teach me
So I am in bed, horizontal and relaxed albeit a little uninspired.
I am not sure how you're spending the last few hours of Ramadan but I know ALL are hoping to hear the good news that Eid is tomorrow, so that crescent better show it's face!
Third Eid in a row I am going to spend in the office and I am not very happy about it, I should be at home with my family eating Baklawa and hiding in my room when neighbours come to wish us Eid Moubarak, I say they come but in truth they race you to it in an attempt at collecting the hasanat the good deeds first, so they all come at once and invade your space whilst all you want to do is enjoy a coffee with cake quietly with the family. There is plenty of time in the day to go around to see people and wish them a MARVELLOUS Eid Moubark, just let me have my morning first.
Oh well at least I won't have to deal with this in the office tomorrow.
Let's just hope it's Eid, 'cos this chick can't take it anymore.
Eid Moubarak to all
Aaaaaaaaaaahh, le petit dejeuner le jour de l'aid. Avec toute la petite famille réunie. The best ever!ReplyDelete

If I said YES, how far and how fast do you think you're gonna run ;)
say YES! go on you know you want to! anyway, you run kilothons so you should be able to run after him hahaha.ReplyDelete
Saode: don't you have some sleeping to do or something? what kilothons are you talking about? lolReplyDelete
Ah Ya dz-chick...they 're fooling you around the kidies...maalich machi koul youm el eid!
PS: raditini dx-cheikh...krib enweliw x-files!
PS2: I meant instead of Boualem Titiche and his zorna-ghayta, you can put the soundtrack of OOh Brother where Art thou...>
FIRST: am gonna change this email, cus dima yafda7 fiya. loolReplyDelete
2nd: age is not a big deal :P, i think i can take care of a women like u.
3rd: i will run 100m for u. ( that is all i can do right now ) :P
@Dz-cheikh: sorry about x, it was before iftar :)ReplyDelete
Les petits se foutent de ma gueule! maaliche!
@Soltan 1991: 100m is a good start, more training required, I am a runner you should know as Saode said, I run some kind of athon!
So you're not scared? you're ready for it? ;)
Dz chick: i will keep runing till i catch u, waraki w ezaman tawil kima ygolouha lmsarwa. :PReplyDelete
Soltan: to catch me, you'll need a time machine :) MWAHReplyDelete
Dz chick: time machine?? all i will need is a rose on my right hand and a nice smile and u will be caught. :) lolReplyDelete
Time machine to catch me when I was your age :)ReplyDelete
But since you're so sure of yourself...a rose and a smile will sufice ;)
to catch u when u were at my age?? why would i need to marry a 20yr old girl?? rahoum ghir houma hna but none of them is smart and wise like u, i proposed bcus i see the women in u, nd i do like women in their 30s, lol so dnt blame me for wanting u :PReplyDelete
ur just too good and too smart mashallah ( matedihach fi rouhk bezzaf ) :P
kilothons, you know those 3.5km that you run under 35 min :PReplyDelete
anyhow, to be continued ... now i can sleep ;) .
Don't worry manedihach fi rouhi as you say! my head didn't inflate yet!ReplyDelete
It's amazing how a 20 year old knows what he wants and sees what the 30 and 40 something fail to see! :)
I am going to sleep on it Soltan ;)
dnt worry sooner or later they will see what they r missing, that time it will be too late for them anyway. good night and sweet dreams future wife lol mwahh :DReplyDelete
@ Soltan: you're still a little prince...you need to grow up to become a real soltan! I dont think a rose in your right hand and a nice smile will make our gracious dz-chick inflate and deflate...kiwwwwww...rak hab tetzawej? lazamlek sabat brillant!ReplyDelete
@DZ-Chick: don't inflate too much or it will happen to you what happened to the frog who wanted to become...
Don't worry for the x..I knew it was before iftar...
Yakhaaaaaah 7abou ybassiwk hahaReplyDelete
Go easily with the sweets...tcharek wa samsa wa makrout Al Louz!
nope, ur mistaken ya l3sal, am a soltan and i will always be a soltan :P i dnt do LITTLE prince.... lolReplyDelete
i knw a rose and a smile is not enough FOR U.. u deserve more then that. :) ( am impressed, usualy a rose with a pretty smile from me always work, i need to find other tricks... or maybe u just playing hard to get which u shouldnt do that with a soltan haha )
mm yeah if i find a lady like u i wont mind marrying her, i follow the brain nt the heart ya l3sal... not like u :P u said no to me just bcus of my email....

@dz sheikh: aside meant my races by kilotons
@soltan: well an offer is an offer where is my diamond? ;)
To all Saha eidkoum
Y'diroulek les problèmes! (détournement de mineur hahaha). I'm kiddin' hein.ReplyDelete
P.S: Check ur inbox
dz-chick, can't you see? HE's the diamond :P .ReplyDelete
i'm supporting him in his quest ;) .
ybassiwek...means they will do you tremendous problems!ReplyDelete
Awah you're not Algiers-girl anymore!
PS: I am out regarding the kilothons...didnt catch it yet!
@Dz sheikh: I USED to run races like 5ks and such and they re apparently reffered to s kilotons!ReplyDelete
@S: oh I know what ybassiwek means I think I drew a blank too many baklawat :p
DZ chick: diamond??? i will rip my heart and put it on a ring for u.. will that be enough for u??ReplyDelete
Soad: tell her plzz shes abt to make a big mistake by saying nn to me :P
kilothons is a porte-manteau term derived from kilometre and marathon denoting runs in the order of km (5k, 10k e.t.c) as opposed to a marathon which is fixed to 26 miles and 385 yards.
our now famous dz-chick has been known to partake in such activity, refer to: http://dz-chick.blogspot.com/2011/07/jp-morgan-chase-corporate-challenge.html
Rip your heart out! ouch that's got to hurt! ok just get me the damn rose :)ReplyDelete
@Saode: I might have a job for you ;)
thank you pour les eclaircissements!ReplyDelete
Kech thon alors?
Happy Eid for all of you guys:) Honestly speaking I have to study French and Algerian arabic to keep following you. It's like biblical Babel tower :-)))ReplyDelete
Hello DZ CHEIKH: Yeah starting to train for a small race soon, just to get back into shape post Ramadan!ReplyDelete
After the amount of cakes I had today...hello fat camp!
Thanks Iurlana, I know that's why I try to always respond in English so people follow the flow but certain things are funnier said in Algerian...if you don't understand anything let me know, I can translate.ReplyDelete
DZ chick: sorry i run out of roses, i gave them all today, and for my heart am keeping it, i need it to keep me alive so i can think of u lolReplyDelete
oh right, what's the offer ;p ?ReplyDelete
@Sultan I am flattered and thank u for ur kind offer :) mwahReplyDelete
@Saode have u got any PR experience? U seem tobegood at it...
no experience whatsoever.ReplyDelete
i'm good at it ... from behind a screen lol.
so hanouna of you to think of me though :-) x
I'm afraid I'm with Irulana, a real struggle to keep up with the French/Algerian and the bits in between. I can just about do ok on the french (Je suis canadien) but the DZ arabic... .ReplyDelete
What does 'diroulek' mean? 'dialect'?
btw... so lovely to see that a single lass can pull, even when said person is just past the legal age ;-)
Saode: frombehind the screen is good for me ;) just you carry onReplyDelete
@ Formosa: am sorry about that! Will fix it :)
As for pulling, I always do ;)
Guys let's try to comment on English as much as possible or add footnotes cheers :)
so this is a behind the screen job ;) ? you want me to be your PR executive? is that it?ReplyDelete
i don't understand darja either but am quite happy to lend a slightly esoteric vibe to proceedings. footnotes would be cool though rather than force commenting in english since certain euphemisms can get lost in translation and also encourage laziness on the part of the readers.
rako mdayrin fiha hala lol...soltan ya soltan...I will call you Mcdreamy mena w jay...ma3andakch sahbak kima enta ynahi kalbo w y7oto fi khatem....ReplyDelete
Saode: yes I want to put you in charge of PR, I don't pay very well...in fact I don't pay! :PReplyDelete
Dz chick: good. seems like u did like my offer... let me knw when u ready, so i can come with gateaux (cakes) nd flowers.ReplyDelete
anonymous: hahah loool MCdreamy huh? u didnt see me yet, ( u will see me on my wedding day with Dz chick lol ) i've been told am way better then him on everything (specially looks, ''trying to impress DZ chick so she say yes''.) :P
lol ih 3andi sahbi kifi mais howa 3andou ch7al men galb mechi wahd bark! he will give u one today and grow 10 tomorrow ( ana ka3ba wahda. makch kifi ):P
Soltan: my experience with men is they're all talk and no action and am action before talk, we're just not compatible (me and men that is) ahhh well...So which kind are you? :)ReplyDelete
get over urself hada lah, m sure kayen khir minak :D...awah madanitch wahed min kahl rass (algerien) ychabah fi mcdreamy especially the hair (ahhhhhhh his hair)....ReplyDelete
manich anonymous ana haniya...
dz-chick wakila raki conference call m3a rohak...yadra soltane mlih twil, kifash mdayer haha...hope u r girl...xxx
u r well i meant :)ReplyDelete
Hi Haniya: what did we just say? lolReplyDelete
Try to comment in English as much as you possibly can, we have non arabic, non french speakers who can't follow the flow of the comments.
So in response to your comment: no a not in an auto conference call, I was talking to my future-barely legal furture husband Soltan.
I am doing GREAT :) hope you're good and well miss. xx
haniya: ana manich kahl erass, ana byad. :P fiya 1.82cm. 3rid mechi smin bezaf, byad w 3andi cha3ri rtab mais mechi twil kima nte3 Mcdreamy. nd i dnt look like algerians. :PReplyDelete
Dz chick: i like action thats why i proposed to u, cus i can see that ur an action girl :D, i dnt like drama. so i do what i wanna do.
Formosa: "diroulek" mean they do to you...ReplyDelete
what's in it for me then?ReplyDelete
Absolutely nothing :)ReplyDelete
surely, as a bankA you can see that this is not a very attractive proposition for me.ReplyDelete
am not an altruist, and based on that ... am out!
seeing as you're both action-driven individuals, when can we expect to see some action between you and quote barely legal unquote soltan?
Pffff people do nothing for nothing these days! there was no such position in any case! economy is bad Saode! there is no work!ReplyDelete
I am no cougar! ;)
embrace your inner feline spirit lol.ReplyDelete
DZ chick: hahahah i dnt see a yes or no, ur totally ignoring me, :/ReplyDelete
dnt worry i was just joking abt the wedding nd the proposal, it was a joke nd it seems u thought i rlly wanted to marry u, so u pulled urself out of the conversation ( typical algerian ). am not crazy to get married at 20yrs. so breath :P
Soltan: I don't know what to say, I am heart broken :PReplyDelete
Bloody hell, I should hope I knew you were joking I thought that was quite clear! wasn't ignoring you baby I simply had no more retorts!
I am going to ignore that "typical Algerian" dig, I am nice like that...;)
DZ chick: :D i kind like the sound of baby :PReplyDelete
i bet it sounds so good when u say face to face :P hahah
speechless and disappointed! you guys were joking? ;"(ReplyDelete
Aha :) yes baby!ReplyDelete
saode: it wasnt a joke, :P but when i felt shes gonna say nn to me i made it a joke, i didnt want her to break my heart by saying NO to me :'(. ( i never cried for a women, shes a heart breaker.) :P )ReplyDelete
Dz chick: baby hadi not from ur heart. :(
Awww Soltan - it's from the heart baby...night night xReplyDelete
sweet dreams, dnt forget to dream of me like am gonna dream of uReplyDelete
What is it here guys? a "Tronic-Love Story" or what?ReplyDelete
@Formosa: We will help you learn the Algerian colloquial language.
@Soltan: Rak Meragteha! *
Meragteha: You are going over the permitted limits!
It seems like everyone is enjoying the end of Ramadan. Happy Eid to all.
Dz CHIKH: meragtha?? what did i do? till now am still good. :DReplyDelete
dz... I'm really trying. but after 3 days in Japan, teaching as well as late dinners, its tough to understand anything.ReplyDelete
But do you realise that Google translate makes absolutely no sense out of any of the Arabic?
I think it is all secret girl talk but - yes please help me ...'learn the Algerian colloquial language'.
ok.. help me with one thing ... "..I am no cougar! ;) " What's the allusion to a cougar? Just someone with sharp claws and a fierce growl?
Algerian is not translatable on any dictionary!ReplyDelete
I will teach u as much as possible but am sure you've picked up a few words no?
A cougar woman by definition is a women of over 40 who exclusively pursues younger men I think there is usually a difference of 10 years or more .... So you see I don't qualify! Phew
Ah, a veil is pulled away from my eyes.ReplyDelete
So... is the age difference for a cougar absolute or relative? just trying to work this out... 20 plus 10...
Still having trouble with some other words, for example how is the number 3 pronounced in the following...
"dz-chick wakila raki conference call m3a rohak" ?
by the way, aren't you at work and didn't you nearly get yourself fired for blogging away the company payroll?ReplyDelete
(for me it is time to sleep....)
Age difference is definitely relative,why d'u ask? :)ReplyDelete
The 3 is hard to pronounce we spell it with a 3 because the 3 looks like the Arabic letter for the sound, it can alsobe written with a double AA
Am blogging from ze smart phone!
the age threshold for cougar is fuzzy(some say 30s others 40s50s), BUT given the age difference you definitely qualify in this case.ReplyDelete
@formosa: check it out on urbandictionary to get a better understanding.
I would only qualify according to your description or that of Urbandisctionary, which remains reative! And of course the fact that I like them older than me!ReplyDelete
Eid Bouteflika! Not Mubarak, nor Ben Ali or Kadafi! :)))))ReplyDelete
DZ chick; i think u should be called a milf not a cougar. cougar is a women on her 40s and 50s nd still looking good, milfs r in their 30s. lol thats what i knw :PReplyDelete
Cannot believe I started this myself, not a milf, not a cougar, prhaps I should be called Dz-Chick!ReplyDelete
Soltan: you were right! you're very cute ;)
Dz chick: i prefer dz chick too. i was right?? did i say am cute?? :PReplyDelete
Not per se...but you did in your own way! it's your bedtime now baby!ReplyDelete
this is getting out of hand ... DZC you're leading him on now tut tut tutReplyDelete
AM NOOOOT! I like him! :PReplyDelete
I am also very bored right now!
do u rlly think i will be able to sleep while thinking of u?? ( i did get the msg by the way!! )ReplyDelete
anyway have fun you guys :)ReplyDelete
Ok let's not start rumours here! lolReplyDelete
"....the fact that I like them older than me."ReplyDelete
That's good and very useful for me to know. :-)
Flirting has gone pandemic :)ReplyDelete
formosa: oh yeah? how so? :)
"how so?" duhhhhhhhhhhh! (normally i hate those american idiosyncracies but .. oh pEERRLEEeaaaaaaaZZZe!)ReplyDelete
Saode I swear to god!!!!!ReplyDelete
that's you being irritated or clueless? ;)ReplyDelete
Are these these the only options? ;PReplyDelete
you're a bit of a tease ya zilla :PReplyDelete
good night ∑
DZ-Chick has gone nuts *(rahate fiha)...we need to put some order here...it's like I am the owner of this blog...ReplyDelete
[saode: I disagree, it is a perfectly valid, wide-eyed, innocent question:-) ]
dz- suppose that you had said the opposite? Something like'. .. cannot bear a man to be anything except lots younger'.
But either way, its all part if the therapy profile.
Keeps looking better with each new thing you add about yourself.
@Saode: not teasing...just reciprocating hamless flirtingReplyDelete
@Dz Cheikh: you're playing Moderator not Owner, and what's wrong wih me having a bit of harmless fun...
@formosa: If I had said the opposite, we would not be even having conversation and I wouldn't have realised you were older than me although I had suspected that.
So my profile is looking better huh! that's a positive assessment Doc :P
(short, waiting 4 flight to leave b4 180km/hr typhoon hits airport)ReplyDelete
Yeah, picture is pretty good, not just what u say about self but what gets revealed.
Moi je dis: Atlag'ni manich 9adek !ReplyDelete
Sorry for people who don't understand. What I said wouldn't have the same intensity in english
Whatever I have revealed about myself seems to have struck a chord with u!! How interesting!ReplyDelete
Hope ur safe, that typhoon sounds scaryyy
To anonymous who I assume is dz sheikh, am sure Soltan knows he's a bit below the age limit for me, we re just having a laug!
Dz chick: i smell jealousy in here. :PReplyDelete
jealousy: if ur old enough for dz chick just show urself, am sure u can beat me on age. cus it seems dz chick dnt like younger men, so just show up with a sweet tongue nd u will win. :P
It's not DZ-Cheikh. It's S :-)ReplyDelete
teaaaase! btw, was expecting you to comment on my special choice of word :P (to check whether it is fitting or not)ReplyDelete
@formosa: yeah sure, aren't we all innocent at heart? ;) .
Poor Little Amir he got stuck in his pencils...ReplyDelete
@DZChick: of course it's your own right to enjoy harmless and harmful kidding...not my problem...eventhough I would worry about bent bladi...by the way i guess I am bit older than u ...respect lady!
@S; we got the little prince hhahaha
Ah Ya Dz-Chick...you got confused...now I am sure that you won't recognize my writing if I don't sign...leghram eqayed eslatane!*ReplyDelete
* Love ties up kings and queens!
Saode: Yeah you're the one to talk!! and yes I did notice the use of "zella" your Algerian connection is serving you well.ReplyDelete
Dz Cheikh: Thanks for caring...but as it's all hamrless fun, all is good.
Perhaps I should publish something soon to change the subject from Soltan and Dz-Chick!
Tout a fait dzc...but it's fun to talk about soltan and dzc no!...ReplyDelete
You can either write about Eid, or about Libya...or ...
Something on Lybia would be good! ...or.....???ReplyDelete
sharing the cake!ReplyDelete
what? i'm a tease? teasing whom? it's all in the name of the PR campaign!ReplyDelete
and who's got cake?
I am not sure which cake is Dz Cheikh talking about!ReplyDelete
Are you PR'ing for me?
for maself! i might spin off from here and do my own blog.ReplyDelete
That would be cool, what would write about?ReplyDelete
about myself obviously, got so much to share with the world.ReplyDelete
And we (not the royal we) would love to read all about it, we are all a bit voyeuristicReplyDelete
lol je plaisante. i get more creative in commenting ...ReplyDelete
Me think so too :) send me the tune!ReplyDelete
hahah you mean i better stay here and carry on PR'ing for YOU!ReplyDelete
there's no new tune yet, i'll see if i have some time over the weekend to come up with something.
Precisely! :) I need to write something new over the weekend...I feel my fingers itching!ReplyDelete
lol good nightReplyDelete
Where r u chick? we're still waiting for the new post of September....September I will remember...(Paul Simon's song)...
I am here, having a brilliant weekend...I will post something soooonReplyDelete
I just can not imagine with strong your blog greatly that saved me! Thank you “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” - Mark TwainReplyDelete
150 comments?? How overwhelming!ReplyDelete
This post also marks the full coverage of your entire blog up to date (12/10/2012)in no chronological order.
You have stimulated me over the past few weeks which might result in withdrawal symptoms and potential harassement on your Facebook page and twitter account to supply my dosage!
THANK YOU so very much dear DZ-Chick for this fabulous blog....great discovery, you have even kept me away from books (hhmmmmm thinking of it, you are a dangerous lady)
I am certain you will meet your prince charming, unsure of he will come in an Algerian coating.
