Been working for quite enough time in a place where I meet the high society of the country. Really a great experience, I like it and I think it’s very interesting to get to know so many different families from different origins, flavors, tastes and styles they go for.


That is all great… But then.


I meet the high society tails. Or people how hang around them trying to be them. Then coming want to live like them but don’t want to pay like them.


I see women who buy a purse for good € 1000 and then go to show it off in front of people who can’t afford € 20 purse. A woman ordering a dinner for € 500 and want to match it with a €1500 which her friend got just few weeks before her… After bargaining for hours she would agree on the € 500 with cheaper and less items.


The thing is. Not just at work, BIC, Friends, Family… Everywhere around here I see people as such.


You don’t have the money why try to pretend to be one of the ones who has? Why do you want to order cake that someone from the rich people ordered but you get angry when asked from you to pay as much as they paid? A wedding cake that coast someone else € 3000 will cost you € 3000 as well… You will not get it cheaper because your family name is not as wealthy as the one before you!


Why do you try to hurt people who can’t afford what you can?


I can’t afford many things… And well I think it’s stupidity pay € 1000 on a purse… But. I still can sit with my head high with high society and with all my respect with the more unfortunate in wealth part of society. I will be comfortable in an Opera or a ballet in an opera house, just as I will feel comfortable in a Whitesnake, an Iron Maiden’s concerts or even in Circus Mundus Absurdus’ show in a hockey arena…


I can be myself with an Orthodox priest in church, with a Jewish family on a dinner table, with religious Muslim man in his house… I can be myself with old, young, men and women. Maybe that’s why today I can say I am not some wanna be… I am not a tail to anyone… and for sure I Love me the way I am… I do not need to buy a € 1000 purse to belong or for someone to respect me.


So why do you need a €1000 purse and pretend to be rich when you don’t dare to live as the rich people you pretend to belong to do?

At last I have presentable nails… thanks to a great talented friend of mine… Phoebe!!! That girl is just talented! 😀

So it’s raining in Cyprus… I mean dogs and cats… crazy beautiful rain! At last some rain that this country needs!

But all that was great… till I was driving back home and while on the back road or the road from Dekelia and Vrysulles I see a police car… the problem wasn’t that I was speeding as I wasn’t… the problem was what I saw… the police man sitting next to his partner that seemed was a man too… was on his phone… the police man was driving and talking in his mobile… now it’s illegal in this country to drive and talk on your mobile… for god sake it’s getting to be illegal to drive and eat or drink at the same time!!! So this man of law… in a military police car… and having another police man next to him in the car… both wearing their police uniform… and the one behind the driving wheel was holding his phone high on his ear and blabbing while driving in this heavy rain in a twisted road!!!

Ladies and gents… I give you Cyprus police!

People trying to sell you something… you have those??? Ever met one??? I’m sure you have been in one or more situations where you had to deal with one!

Now what bothers me is not they are trying to make a living… not that they are doing their jobs… but the manipulation they use!

Example… a woman (we all know how stupid most get when they go shopping)… so this woman walks into a cosmetic shop… 100s of names… 1000s of products… but she knows what she want… she wants the gosh new pink nail polish… but… as soon as she gets in

this woman tells her; do you know about our products from the dead sea?

She answers; yes and I have few at home… and tries to walk away…

but… the sales woman goes but you haven’t for sure tired our new skin pealing product, it would help with any problems with your dry skin… as I see you have a very dry skin madam…

the woman goes; oh ok I could try it… give me just one…

so the sales woman goes; but you can’t waste the offer we are having just for this weekend!!! If you buy 2 you will have the third for free… they will be enough for you for 3 years!

So the woman ends up walking with 3 of the skin peal that she didn’t even need in the first place!

Then you have the doctors… yeh sail people as I see them (specially here in Cyprus)… I go to a doctor saying dear doctor have you heard of this natural clinical process called colon cleansing?

Doctor; oh yeh… what about it?

My; I am looking for someone who does it in Cyprus.

Doctor; why???

Me; well I have this problem with blotting and problem with going to the toilet…

Doctor; no… no…. you need an operation…

Me in my head; f*#% you, you sales man… I will not buy this product I don’t need from you (meaning the op)… but out loud I say; well I will see about that so I walk away without continuing this subject!

Now why some people think they could read or know what exactly you need??? Why not having a job means I’m miserable?? Because I’m not… why not having the money to spend around like a spoiled brat means I am going to hang myself??? I have enough cloth (I mean so many)… I have my bills paid… I have enough money to have a coffee or a night out with my friends regularly… I still go out with my husband and enjoy dinners and still have enough to pay my girls dance school and my gas for the car… so why is is people think they have the answers for no questions that haven’t even been asked???

No I don’t want your help as this is not the issue I have… and for my issue (when ever one strikes) I have my great psychotherapist!!! So no thank you for what ever you are selling!

So I think it’s time for me to tell you what happened to me on Thursday 2nd of August…

I was on my way back from an appointment with my therapist in Larnaca and I was driving on the highway at about 120km/h when a guy in a red Toyota MR2 ‘or MR-S as some call it’ see me and tries to race me!!!! As usual me I can refuse a challenge… I took him over and then slowed down for a curve that sometimes has police after it… So the guy takes me over ‘or that what I thought’… He keeps with my speed right next to my car so I look at him! He points to me to stop on the safe lane! I showed him my ring ‘meaning I’m married and not interested’… Would that stop him?? No he keeps harassing me and tries to force me to stop! But me I never did and never would… But as my sweet bad luck there has been a truck on fire on the high way and all traffic stopped and big flames from far a way reaching the sky! And smart Nora what she does??? Of course she has to stop and not just that get out of the car to take some pictures! Yes the guy was still in front of me! He gets out of his car and just comes and sits in my car! Yes just got in my car! I asked him to get out but he didn’t and as I didn’t know him and didn’t know what he might do I kept calm and just played along! So this is what happened:

He; You’re a good driver!

Me; Thank you! So are you!

He; Can I have your number?

Me; No! I’m a married woman!

He; So what? He doesn’t need to know!

Me; But I tell my husband everything! So he will know!

He; Will you tell him about me?

Me; Of course I will!

He; No you won’t!

Me; Ok I won’t!

He; So give me your number!

Me; NO!

He grabs my phone from my hands and tries to unlock it with no luck! I thought he’ll give up and leave! But no he takes the cover of my phone and tells me if I don’t give him my number he won’t give it back! Instead of just telling him to keep it I freaked out and gave him my number… He gives back my phone cover and tells me again not to tell my husband and I told that I won’t tell him… BUT before he leaves, he points to my thigh and says; That’s not nice!! Meaning the cellulite in my thigh!! I just answered back; Well I’m a woman and I have some fat on me! So what? He smiled and then he left! ‘F**king S**t! The a** want to sleep with me and calls me FAT???’

I was so relived and drove to my Tony’s Taverna and the first thing I did is told Stelios exactly what and how it happened! From the beginning of the race till the end of the thigh pointing!!! I was so pissed off! I was laughing as well! It was funny and sad some how! And while I was talking to Stelios the guy calls and I give the phone to Stelios and tell him to answer! He goes like????? What am I suppose to say? I told him just say hi! 😛 He answered in such a formal way and the guy hangs up straight a way! “Such a chicken!’ 😛

2days later he calls and I’m at work… I answer…

Me; Hello!

He; Is this Nora?

Me; Oh yes! How are you?

He; I’m ok! Where are you?

Me; I’m at work!

He; Why did you tell your husband?

Me; I told you I tell him everything!

He; What did he say?

Me; Not much! He trusts me and knows I could handle myself!

He; I want to see you!

Me; I’m a happily married woman! So the answer is no!

He; So what? I really want to see you!

Me; You want to come and have a coffee with me and my husband?

He; No, I just want to see you!

Cheryl walks in and talks to me…

He; Ok I’ll leave you for your work, but I’ll call you later! Ok?

Me; You can call when ever you want it doesn’t matter for me!

He; You’re not going to tell your husband I called?

Me; Of course I will!

He; Please don’t!

Me; You know I will tell him!

He; Ok bye!!

Me; Bye!

And yes I did tell my husband later on that day! He did try to call few more times but I just keep rejecting his calls and it seems he got my message!

Ps; Men do not tell or show a woman in any way that you think they have a bit of extra kilos on their body if you want to get to their pants!!! If I was single and a man that I did like points at my cellulite and says that’s not nice… He would have had to forget ever getting anything from me!!!

10. Mick Jagger & Jerry HallE

stimated settlement: $15 to $25 million

The Rolling Stones rocker and Texas supermodel met in 1977 and had two children together before marrying in a traditional Hindi wedding ceremony in Bali, Indonesia, in 1990. Hall filed for divorce in 1999 after learning that Jagger had fathered another woman’s child. Jagger, worth an estimated $325 million at the time, successfully challenged the legality of the Balinese wedding and received an annulment. Hall walked away with between $15 and $25 million, a fraction of Jagger’s estate.

9. Lionel & Diane Richie

Estimated settlement: $20 million

Richie, then 36 and married, met the 18-year-old backup dancer at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. Richie, divorced from his first wife in 1993, married Diane by 1996. The Richies became tabloid favorites when Diane filed for divorce in 2004 and detailed their lavish lifestyle in her alimony petition. Among her claims: a monthly clothing allowance of $15,000; $50,000 a month for manicures, massages and other personal services; and a plastic surgery budget of $20,000 a year.

8. Michael & Diandra Douglas

Estimated settlement: $45 million

Douglas met 19-year-old Georgetown co-ed Diandra Luker in 1977 at a Jimmy Carter inauguration party. They married six weeks later. During the course of the marriage, Douglas became one of Hollywood’s top earning actors, starring in classics like Fatal Attraction, Wall Street and Basic Instinct. Amid rumors of the actor’s infidelities and alcohol abuse, the couple split in 1998. Diandra was awarded an estimated $45 million, plus homes in Beverly Hills and Majorca.

7. James Cameron & Linda Hamilton

Estimated settlement: $50 million

The Titanic director married the Terminator actress in July 1997. They had one daughter together before the marriage tanked 18 months later. Cameron received some $100 million from Paramount for Titanic (which grossed $1.8 billion). Hamilton received half of that, an estimated $50 million, in the divorce settlement.

6. Paul McCartney & Heather Mills

Settlement pending: Possibly more than $60 million

In 2002, the former Beatle wed Mills, a model-activist 30 years his junior. McCartney reportedly shunned Mills’ offer of a prenuptial agreement. By 2006, the pair, who have one child together, split acrimoniously. She accused him of assault; he locked her out of their London home. Rumors of a settlement suggest Mills may get in excess of $60 million–McCartney’s worth is an estimated $700 million.

5. Kevin Costner & Cindy Silva

Estimated settlement: $80 million

The pair, who met at California State University, wed in 1978. During their 16-year marriage, Costner became one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors, scoring seven Oscars for Dances with Wolves and starring in iconic films like Bull Durham and Field of Dreams. Costner pocketed $50 million in 1991 alone. Because Silva was married to Costner during his peak earning years, she was awarded $80 million, a substantial piece of his net worth.

4. Harrison Ford & Melissa Mathison

Estimated settlement: $85 million

The couple met in 1977 at a dinner with casting director Fred Roos (American Graffiti) and wed in 1983. Six years later, Ford became one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors when he banked $7 million for Presumed Innocent. By 1995, he was making $20 million a film. The couple divorced in 2004. In addition to her divorce settlement, Mathison negotiated a piece of Ford’s future earnings from films he made while married, including DVD sales of the Indiana Jones trilogy and The Fugitive.

3. Steven Spielberg & Amy Irving

Estimated settlement: $100 million

The couple met when Irving auditioned for Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977). They married in 1985, after Spielberg had already struck it big with his first Indiana Jones flick and ET. They divorced after nearly four years of marriage. Irving successfully contested their prenuptial agreement (reportedly scribbled on a napkin) because she did not have legal representation and was awarded $100 million, roughly half of Spielberg’s fortune at the time. Today, he is worth $3 billion.

2. Neil Diamond & Marcia Murphey

Estimated settlement: $150 million

The crooner married Murphey, a television production assistant, in 1969, before he released his first gold record, Touching You, Touching Me. By the late ’70s, Diamond was one of the most successful musicians in showbiz, grossing upward of $14 million annually. After 25 years of marriage, Murphey filed for divorce in 1994, citing irreconcilable differences. She walked away with half of Diamond’s fortune–she’s “worth every penny,” he later said.

1. Michael & Juanita Jordan

Settlement pending: Possibly more than $150 million

The legendary basketball star married Juanita Vanoy, a Chicago bank officer, in 1989. He had already signed an eight-year, $25 million contract with the Chicago Bulls. He also was earning another $30 million a year from Nike and other endorsement deals. She filed for divorce last year. Over the course of the marriage, Jordan earned more than $350 million. Should Juanita press for half of his assets, she could get more than $150 million in the settlement, making the Jordan divorce the most expensive in entertainment history.

I was watching the E!Entertainment news today with my hubby. For a shocking view that made us both upset! So here is the story; Comedian Eddie Griffin crashed a Ferrari! But the big deal was that it wasn’t any Ferrari! It was a $1.5 million Ferrari Enzo! Only 400 Ferrari Enzos were ever produced, all between 2002 and 2004.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it! I was almost crying for the Enzo! This is what happened:

· The 38-year-old actor-comedian was taking part in a promotional charity race at the Irwindale Speedway.

· He drove too fast around a curve.

· Video footage shows the Enzo screeching before it ricocheted off the barrier with heavy damage to its front.

· Griffin walked away completely unscratched, but probably a little shaken! Shaken? Is that all? I really have to say this I love your acting, but that was just simply put… BAD DRIVING!!

The Enzo is owned by “Redline” executive producer Daniel Sadek. He commented: “I’m glad Eddie came out of the crash OK, but my dream car got destroyed, I went to my trailer for about 15 minutes and I thought, there are people dying every day. A lot of worse things are happening in the world.” ISN’T THAT SWEET OF HIM? Because I would have broken the man’s legs and arms to make sure he’ll never drive again, not caring who the man is!

I think I heard one too many of wife jokes! Here are few I could remember! They still make me laugh even if I am a woman and wife! 😀

Ø My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met.

Ø A good wife always forgives her husband when she's wrong.

Ø I haven't spoken to my wife in 18 months - I don't like to interrupt her.

Ø A man said his credit card was stolen but he decided not to report it since the thief was spending much less than his wife did.

Ø Man is incomplete until he is married. Then he is finished.

Ø A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?" The father replied, "I don't know son, I'm still paying."

Ø Young Son: Is it true, Dad, that in some parts of
Africa a Man doesn't know his wife until he marries her? Dad: That happens in every country, son.

Ø Then there was a man who said, "I never knew what real happiness was until I got married; then it was too late.

Ø A man placed an ad in the classifieds: "Wife wanted." The next day he received a hundred letters. They all said the same: "You can have mine."

Ø A man placed an ad in the classifieds: "Wife wanted." The next day he received a hundred letters. They all said the same: "You can have mine."

Ø Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.

Ø It's not true that married men live longer than single men. It only seems longer.

Ø A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

Ø The most effective way to remember your wife's birthday is to forget it once.
