Outta Commission!

Much as I am still uninspired, life continues to go on.
First and foremost; the only boy I shared a boob with is back! Yay! This is very exciting because I missed him like hella much. Seeing and having him around 24/7 now never tires. One of my fave girls claims he looks so much like my dad but then again, their blood line is strong. lol. He seems much bigger now (not fat), and very bearded. His beard could almost compete with that of Rick Ross. Much as he has trimmed it for now, the beard is an issue for the parents. My dad actually asked how he could have been allowed to travel with such as beard on top of being Muslim. Like being Muslim isn’t cause for suspicion without the beard making matters worse.
On the day we went to pick him up, the airport was crawling with so much human traffic both in the waiting lounge and outside that I wondered how one of my friends who actually works there deals. I felt so faint in that I absconded to the loos just to catch a breather. And there was a lady preacher in full make up trying to ‘save’ my soul. Really?! OK, not to offend anyone but some people should try to keep their faith and religion to themselves. I am the only Muslim amongst my friends and personally, I never go out of my way to try and convert them to Islam because that is how much I respect them and their religious beliefs and I expect they wouldn’t try to do the same to me. So, why don’t these people ever get it? We are all comfortable with our religious beliefs and I believe those who aren’t know where to go. Do we all look like potentially lost souls who need saving that one must try their shot in the dark? Really?
I usually let this stuff roll off my back but this woman pissed the hell out of me! When I told her I am Muslim and already have a God, she actually asked, ‘Who is that?’ and ‘What is a Mosque?’ Was she for real? I would NEVER EVER disrespect someone like that nor would I pretend to be such an empty headed ignoramus. My mother was right to say they are all thieves in disguise and we should be wary of them.
I’ve spent a few days or rather week out of commission due to poor health. Whenever I have my arm hooked up to an I.V, the thought, ‘I got tracks on my veins like a drug addicts’ runs through my mind all the time. LOL! My left arm was used this time and on the second day of medication, I went to shower and brush my teeth. When I held my toothbrush in my right hand and attempted to brush, I realised how freaking hard it is. I wondered how people go about little stuff like this when their main hand is incapacitated. Damn! I felt really useless without my left hand. I am such a lefty in that I use it to eat when I am using a fork and knife. It has nothing to do with etiquette or table manners. It was really uncomfortable on so many levels. At one point, I had to ask my brother to help pull me up to a sitting position. 

 The medication is done and I am glad to have to use of my arm back. On that note, Imma stop here for now. 

My brother got me a new set of legs and this is me trying to get used to them. 


Ramadan Kareem to all my Muslim friends, readers and family. May God accept all your Fasts, Prayers and Good deeds in this Holy month and may HE have mercy on us all. Ameen.

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
