I've got a lot of tidbits and things to sound off on. Sorry for the chaos, but you'll soon see how my mind works.
A dialogue between myself and a gentlemen I checked into the clinic earlier as I'm walking towards the cafe for my lunch:
Man: Hey my mom used to always wear those scarves, but you don't see it much nowadays.
Me: *a bit confused* Oh really? Where's your mom from?
Me: *surprised* Alexandria, Egypt?
Man: Uh, Alexandria, Minnesota.
Man: Why, where are you from?
Me: Here, but I'm Muslim.
Me: So uhm, have a nice day!
Why the news makes me laugh sometimes:
1.) Not that this story really is something to laugh about because someone actually died, but when I was watching the news it illicited a very loud snort. One man shot another man after they "exchanged argumentative text messages."
First we date via myspace, then we send fightin' wurds by text.
When I think of two men fighting via text messaging brings to mind the image of two gay men slap fighting.
But thats just me. Its sad because the other man died (inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon) so just remember kids before you send that next text telling someone you're gonna kick their a$$ you might just have to put your money where your fingers are.
2.) Heath Ledger has died (see above dua) and in retaliation to losing the limelight Britney Spears went out again with the same "Muslim" papparazzo who had just appeared on a gossip show talking about his relationship with her.
And then the Feds, realizing that Britney's antics are no longer distracting the world media from our freefalling economy, decided to drop an interest rate the largest single amount in 25 years.
And it did nothing.
3.) When talking about afore-mentioned economic crisis the news played a 2 second clip of Pres Bush talking about something that must not have mattered because they didn't introduce him or play him for very long.
Also no one is quite sure when he arrived home again.
Some random things I've noticed about Masjids lately:
1.) You will never see creative parking like that at masjids during jummah time. All streetspace/parking lots within walking distance suddenly become little pieces of the Middle East where triple parking is perfectly normal. Someday it will be the Muslims who invent how to park cars on top of eachother and utilize it.
2.) The sisters enterance will never be obvious. At a new masjid sisters will circle the building three times before being directed to the door hidden behind a bush. Make time for it.
3.) Above rule will change during jummah. Good luck finding where the sisters have been moved to in order to make room for the extra men.
And finally something random about me:
I will automatically be drawn to something red. Its my new favorite color and my husband is the one who picked up on it before I did.
Good job habibi. Keep being so good at guessing what I like. It will pay out in the long run.
