Queen of the Nile

Friends hoping to see Lola LebCan dripping with gold scarabs and chanting hieroglyphic curses when she arrived back from Egypt at Christmas were sorely disappointed. Rather than see any of the great wonders of Al Masr, the PR princess (now a PR consultant queen) previously barricaded herself upon a leafy island in the Nile, during her extended work sojourn in the land of the Pharoahs.

"You can just about see the pyramids from my apartment window, at least when it's not smoggy. And with a strong telescope," she excused herself at the time.

This time, all has changed. Now best friends with the Sphinx ("the pyramids are amazing!"), Lola has even adopted an Egyptian Arabic twang. Over iced McQahwahs in some ghastly mall cafe, she explains why:

"The problem is that if they hear you speaking in a Lebanese accent, they automatically assume you're a porn star."

The question is not so much which is better, but which is less worse :(

I take back the retarded comment. First read through I got the impression of a very flighty woman whom I had never heard of.

Sorry Lola

PR in the Middle East ... I bow before you my queen.

Dont be. The archives are there. Read the SD archives, from the very first post, and catch up with SD. It's really interesting I bet.
B T W I love the stereotypes that SD identifies. And even better are the nicks for them like "Sheikhmobile" and "Jumeira Jane"
Lola LebCan is just another nick i suppose.

Why do you need to know Lola to understand this post? Are you guys retarded? It's just a nice little story about a friend of SD's who said something funny.

Is it just me or are Arab women really pretty? Man, they are so damn seductive! It's not just lebanese; in fact, local women covered completely look so damn seductive too!

I need to get married and get a friggin' life!

Excellent, was wondering when Lola was going to creep up again. She is the master of delegation, so goodness knows how she will be a consultant?!
