Another day at work.... I am awfully tired, didn't get much sleep last night, or today actually.... went to bed at 5:30 AM, stayed up reading till 6:30, slept for 3 hours and woke up at 9:30, got dressed then went to work........

So far, my job is quite interesting, I got to do a looooooot of things, including loads of paper work which reminds me why I simply love my pc........ I did some nice work, they are all pretty satisfied now, hope it lasts till I am done!!

It's a completely different summer this year, instead of staying in bed all day, watching tv or sitting to the laptop all night, I am on a very tight schedule, trying to do anything for fun but so far I haven't been very lucky!!!

I got to go to the computer malls, was looking for a new HDD, I was totally out of space, I found some portables but they are pretty expensive for my budget so I got a normal 120GB internal laptop HDD and a cover, now I have a nice free 120GB connected through USB for USD85!

It's an amazing feeling to look at the status bar and see all this white space waiting to be filled!

As a treat, I got a copy of Vista, installed it and I am now using it.... Of course I had some stupid time retrieving my bookmarks and offline contents etc. because I wanted to put a clean copy, no upgrading..... It's worth it after all!

I got the new Harry Potter too... Everyone who dares to say it's for kids is looking for a fight with me, this is no child's book or at least not only for children! Didn't read much of it yet, only about 115 pages, I am reading another book with it and again, it's the lack of time!

Emotionally, it's all shit right now, I am confused and I can't comprehend a lot of the stuff going around me.... It's like a death trap, whenever I think I am done, I survived, I am sucked back into troubles!!! I want to scream MERCYYYYYYYYYYYY some times..... But as everything else, it will calm down again in a while, and it will get even worse for the millionth time.... What can we say, it's life, and I am living it to the bone!

I don't know when I'll be able to write again, will try to go out soon and write about it but till then, I have to go do some work "I am on my coffee break" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Shins, New Slang!

Gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth.
Only, i don't know how they got out, dear.
Turn me back into the pet that i was when we met.
I was happier then with no mind-set.

And if you'd 'a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i'd 'a jumped from my tree
And i'd a danced like the king of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would 'a fared well.

New slang when you notice the stripes, the dirt in your fries.
Hope it's right when you die, old and bony.
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall,Never should have called
But my head's to the wall and i'm lonely.

And if you'd 'a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i'd 'a jumped from my tree
And i'd a danced like the kind of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would 'a fared well.

God speed all the bakers at dawn may they all cut their thumbs,
And bleed into their buns 'till they melt away.

I'm looking in on the good life i might be doomed never to find.
Without a trust or flaming fields am i too dumb to refine?
And if you'd 'a took to me like
Well i'd a danced like the queen of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would 'a fared well.

A new job!

Not much going on the last few days, the exams are still there, they were okay, not my usual perfect but okay.... I have an oral exam in about 8 hours but I can't get myself out of bed to grab a book, I am bored and tired.

Things are calm in here, specially in my head... The usual rage and anger and complicated passionate feelings are withdrawing.... It feels like my head was inside a giant mixer with a thousand hand pushing the "ON" button, but one by one, they turned off the mixer to leave me at the bottom of it, still got some headache from the spinning but other than that, the silence is incredibly comforting... I need this time out to retain my "sanity", get back on track and hopefully gain back the weight I lost... I can say that I am happy, remembering things from the last year is not as painful as it was in the previous couple of months... I am glad I managed to cope with the changes around me, the changes in my head....

On another matter, my vacation should start by the 22nd of this month, I pretty much can't wait because this has been one hell of a school year... I will be a forth year med student, quite a change since I was that little cheerful energetic girl back at high school but it is expected, nothing stays the same, we are always changing...

A while ago I raised the subject with my parents, I will be working this summer, for a million reasons starting from not wanting to stay home sleeping all day and sitting on my laptop all night till I got some backache of a 90 year old man working in mining , to seeking a fraction of financial Independence...
So as I said, I talked to the old folks about it and my father immediately said that he wants me to work for him"he has an imp. & exp. company and another software, web designing one", I agreed because I know that he is in desperate need for an assistant and I happen to know most of what it takes, having worked for him before on part time bases.

I am not really comfortable with the situation, working for my father, specially when my younger brother will be training there too to prepare himself for entering the faculty of engineering and the whole business.

I still don't know how it is going to be, so I guess the only thing I have to do is to give it a try, a couple of weeks won't harm, to see how it will end up like... If it doesn't work out, good thing I already made it clear to them that I will leave and look for a job anywhere else for I won't accept wasting the whole summer doing something I am not satisfied with...

There is nothing else to do now, I'll just wait and see... But for now, I'd better get out of bed and go study for a while till I leave for the exam!

There are things and things..

There are things and things..
There are things that ruin your day just because they are here..
And things you want them to be far.. There..
Who am I?
I am who I am and I have my reasons, and I don't have a reason to be grateful to you or anyone else. All I want is to stay alone & safe and may the whole world go as one package straight to hell.
I am who others spat in my face a thousand time until that filthy, nice feeling started growing and piling in my tight chest..
There are things and things..
Now tell me..
Have you ever tried breaking the red light at a checkpoint without being (DON'T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?) or some president of some country?
Have you ever tried stealing a cigarette from your sleeping father's pocket?
To spit in the cup of tea every time they serve it to you so that no one else could drink from it?
To taste your bleeding blood after a fist fight with someone older and bigger than you?
Have you ever dreamt of throwing the hot soup in the face of that cousin of yours who doesn't even know your name but telling you how sweet it would be if you got up and made him some tea?
Have you ever tried sticking your tongue out for a giant saw?
Here I am now, begging you. Leave it all to that part of you who have had it.
in the face of that officer at the checkpoint.
And your father.
And those you meet in that cafe near your house.
And the cousins you don't know : stop JUDGING me.
There are stuff and stuff..
Here is your poor face saying that you will be the prey for things you don't know, I know you don't give a fuck but please don't worry.
I already did way worse.
Come closer sweetie.
Come closer without any real grantees or promises of any kind.
I won't protect you, won't love you, won't be around if you need me, and you'll know why you should be grateful for that.
You will learn how to feel the pain when I jump over that wall that surrounds all what you fear and hate.
For I won't jump to the outside.. I will jump to the inside, where thousands of things make you say :
I can't take this. I can't take that. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What is being crazy?
It doesn't matter.
Who am I really?

You can worry now.
For together we will drink madness drop by drop.

A very random post,

I went out yesterday with my cousin after my oral exam... It was the greatest fun I had in a reeeeeeally long time, I love going out with her, it is so much fun probably because we are both crazy and simply don't care :P and we were shopping so that simply doubled the fun :D

another subject,

"In the beginning, we were all fish, okay?! swimming around in the water... And one day, a couple of fish had a retard baby, and the retard baby fish was different so he got to live... So the retard fish goes on to make some more retard babies... And one day, the retard baby crawled out of the water with its mutant fish hands and it had butt sex with a squirrel or something... and it made this retard frog-squirrel... And then this had a retard baby which was a monkey-fish-frog... And then this monkey-fish-frog had butt sex with this monkey and had a mutant retard baby that screwed another monkey and that made YOU........ So there you go, you are the offspring of 5 monkeys having butt sex with a fish-squirrel, congratulations!!

One last thing, I saw this today, very good art, very good direction, though I have a thing for materialization of woman's beauty in a picture of her face or figure but I have to admit I liked it!

Dody's first painting, she did it last night!

Friday, June 1, 2007



I just came across this picture on, and the comment goes like this:

BAGHDAD, IRAQ - MAY 24: An Iraqi boy climbs boards a boat to cross the Tigris River on May 24, 2007 in Baghdad, Iraq. A number of Iraqis have turned to use boats to cross the banks of the Tigris River after the bombing of at least four bridges in Baghdad.

Remember how we all after this series of bombing bridges and building walls, we all started throwing accusations of them being sectarian acts by some one with interest in separating Baghdad into Sunni and Shiite areas restricted for each other!! I remember I myself started making fun of how stupid I think it is, how obvious the way things are going.... And of course as Arabs we all invented the usual conspiracy theory involving Israel and the Mossad etc. etc., you know, the way we always do....

Now watching these pictures were like a shock to me, I suddenly realised that we were all wrong!!

The thing happening behind the scenes which I am about to revile now is going to be a surprise to all of you, so please hold on tight to your seats, sit down if you are reading while you are standing, prepare for the shock:

IT'S THE BOAT DRIVERS"or whatever you want to call them"!!

picture this with me, a group of those boat owners gather in a meeting to search their current situation.... The business is really bad these days, you know people are more worried about their asses than taking a trip in the Tigris, beside, they'd rather spend their money on buying fuel than taking a boat with their chicks!!

What is the solution?! what can we do?! we can't earn our living like this specially when we can't go fishing because you know how it is with 30 years of throwing deadly chemicals and wastes into the river, by now all the fish are probably looking like TMNT "teenage mutant ninja turtles" so fishing them is not an option!

P.S from the writer ..... I know it sounds dump, a fisherman knowing about TMNT but bare with me here, you got the point, that's the important thing!!

Now back to our fishermen, a long silent pause domains until a voice comes from among them..... I have an idea!!!

*What idea? tell us please!!
*It's kindda cranky, I am not sure if you would agree to it...
*just tell us anything, we are desperate here, can't you see?! We would go for anything, just talk!
*......... Blow up the bridges.
*You heard me, lets blow up the bridges, people won't find a way to cross the river and they will have to come back to us!! We would be the only way for them to get to their jobs and houses...
Everyone will be crawling to get in the line for a ride!!
*C'mon, think about it. It's a really good idea, no one will ever suspect the poor guys who spent their lives sailing in the river!!
*It sounds like a good idea to me!
*yeah, me too!
*But guys....
* Oh shut up, no buts, we need to feed the family " said in a dangerous mob way", and I will do anything to prove my loyalty to the family.
*So are you with us or not?!
*........... I am sorry, but this is against my morals, I can't help but think of all the people who would get killed in such a massacre!
*Okay soft boy, I am afraid we can't leave any witnesses behind.... KILL HIM!!!

"sound of a fight and someone getting slayed eventually"

I will leave the rest for your imagination, I think you know how it must have gone, just some explosives, easy to attach them to the bases of the bridges using their boats, no one will suspect why they were roaming around the area, after all, it's their job!!

Now, I bet if you get some of those CSI people with their weird devices, they will find traces of saliva, sorry chemical stuff used for making home made explosives on their hands, urine and hair maybe even disect one of them and search for it in his lungs!!

you can find some more pictures that support my accusations here!
Notice the devilish looks in their eyes, you know what they say, once a murderer, forever a murderer.

I guess they underestimated how genius I am or just never thought I'd see those pictures!!

P.S I was simply joking above but I am happy that at least one party got benefit from these massacres!
