It was nice passing by campus today, and quite a cacophony reverberated across the building – stretching from the food court on the Carnegie side to the Moot Board Room area near Admissions on the Mellon side. All this on top of summer school being in session.
One end has the Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation’s 1st Translation Conference, and I saw Omar manning the table as the Sales Exec selling the books. Their 2 interns, the lovely Nada and Maryam (both Twitter-holics), we’re doing most if not all the work – not to mention that they’ll be headed to London for a while.

He even confessed about spending a good amount of his income on Apple products, and that drove him to near monthly bankruptcy. *sigh* When will people learn to avoid the reality distortion field that Apple creates with its hype?
