I know, I was just referring to the fact that she said "damn", aside from saying "hell" in her David Letterman YouTube spoof, that was the first time I'd heard her curse, and I'm not so sure she meant to

I like it though, she may just be human after all

Anyone who has attended a these sorts of conferences knows that there are alot of activities, seminars and talks that take place off stage. Moreover they are excellent networking opportunities.

The fact is more connections etc are made off-stage than on it. There's alot more behind the scenes works that goes into these things than the average person realises.

It's great to see Rania with the Browns, from what I understand she is good friends with Sarah and now that she and Gordon are working together I'm sure they'll become even closer.

I know it's just my imagination about Gordon Brown always looks smitten with Rania
They've worked together quite a bit over the last couple of years, even before he became PM.

No Humera, I don't think it is your imagination. There is the body language which can be seen and I think I recall reading an article in the British Times online version by a journalist who said something like Gordon Brown acted like a lovesick schoolboy when he was with Queen Rania.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II ‘cozies up to’ Leonardo DiCaprio at UN
“King Abdullah went out for a smoke during dinner and told the security outside, ‘If my daughter finds out that I’m sitting next to Leo DiCaprio, she’ll never forgive me’,” the New York Post quoted a spy as saying.

International development has always been close to Brown's heart which is why it's not a surprise that he has chosen to continue his work in this area now he in no longer PM.

As for him and Sarah they're absolutely devoted to each other, you only have to see them together to see just how well suited they are. She really brings out the best in him but then in person he's nothing like the dour individual the press has painted him to be.

isn't that hooka though? does that have the same health ramifications as cigarettes? it never ceases to amaze me, the hypocrisy of smoking and people who have been touched by cancer and work for cancer causes...

does QR smoke?...i hope not, it's not an attractive habit IMO

Hookah/Sheesha is not the same as smoking a cigarette. The health ramifications only affect those who smoke it on a very regular basis- just like a cigarette.

I dont think so .. specially now with her heart problems. It is true that the negative impact of water pipe on human health is much larger than cigarettes, but, unfortunately,it is very common and part of M.Eastern customs and traditions.

I think it depends on the kind of sheesha you smoke, these days it's easy to get flavours with a very low tobacco content.
