My little sister, who loves me very much, wrote this to me today: Repugnant sister, I hate you so much that every day I almost rip my hair out considering you are still alive. Whenever I hear your uninviting name, I hurl as I conceptualize your displeasing face into my memory. When you return to our household, your discourteous appearance makes me weak-kneed. I consistently assume to myself that you will recuperate, but never. All I can verbalize is, stay away from me. Your pulchritudinous sister, Nusa

Sarcasm. To the Nth degree

Hello world. I have a friend (yes, I can hear all of you saying "oh really" and "wow, I didn't know" and "that's really great progress, Asmaa." Shutup.) whom I have named so eloquently, hajface. Hajface is as sarcastic as I am, if not more so. It's funny because I never really thought there would ever be any living human as sarcastic as I, until she showed up. Haj, I know you're queen of sarcasm...but, I still officially have the "Queen of Nerds" title. (please don't ask how it became official, just trust me on this one.) We are the ones who bring entertainment to boring MSA meetings. It is we who can make miserable students smile for a moment before they plunge back into their failure fears. But, I've heard that sarcasm is the cheapest form of humour...humour of the poor man. Yes, I have heard this. Well NO MORE. That's right, you heard me. NO MORE SARCASM FOR ASMAA. I've become the one who works so hard to entertain others, that I myself become bereft of substance. I guess not many people take me seriously anymore. Which is why I'm going to stop being sarcastic. Forever. Ahhh who am I kidding. If I have to be a cheap poor guy, SO BE IT. It's been a pleasure. Thank you and good night.

Random thoughts of the day

They say small things amuse small minds, but I disagree. I am amused by small things. Specifically, bouncy balls and playdough. Come on, who doesn't find bouncy balls to be entertaining? It's amazing fun! And, are some more things that amuse me: I crack myself up.

I remember when I used to think dandelions were really pretty flowers. My sibs and I would pick dandelions for our mom...of course, she feigned pleasure :D I still think dandelions are pretty. I don't care that they're weeds. I STILL LOVE THEM. That's all for today. ahem.

I'm happy, I'm relaxed

You'll either pee on yourself watching this... or you will want to kill yourself.

a haiku

I wrote some quiet words in the dark when all were asleep. And He heard.

Sponge Babies

This is a little less serious than some of my previous posts, but it's extremely cute. I really couldn't help it.

So Many Gems, so Little Time

Another gem: The patience that you develop by establishing salah (prayer) is greater than you think. When Salah becomes a major part of your day - sort of like anchoring your life, everything else seems to fall into place.

Breach of Covenant

The Al-Maghrib class is really interesting. It feels awesome to be around so many Muslims. So many many hijabs... And I'm learning a lot about myself,'s not only tafseer! Here's a gem: Fear and hope in Allah must come in a combination. You must never lose hope in Allah's Mercy, yet not rely so much on this mercy that you commit many sins. I'm learning how bad of a Muslim I actually am.

My job

I started my full-time job today. I quit my full-time job today. [Insert reasons here] InshaAllah it will be replaced by something more useful to me.

I Love to Laugh

It's May. The weather is beautiful. I love it when it rains! I was waiting all of April for showers but they only came in May :D I guess May's flowers will come in June... I just got a full-time job that I'm starting tomorrow, InshaAllah. I have to wake up really early though, which I'm not used too. Good-bye to noon breakfasts. Sigh. But Alhamdulillah! Oh, I was on the subway today and a bunch of guys came on the train and stole an advertisement that was up. They just popped it out of its frame. It was rather humourous...especially because it was a very stupid ad, and I was most glad to have it out of my line of sight. ha ha ha ha I love to laugh.

Smells from the kitchen...

My supervisor wrote this. hehehe Apr 29 2005 9:09PM You know how smells from the kitchen travel easily throughout the office? Ya, well, with this in mind, we ask that the strong smelling foods, particularly fish, are not microwaved for dinner. We all like fish (for food, sport or companionship) and we all need our Omega3 fatty acids but an office should smell like carpets and computers not Carp. Thanks.
