I’ve been feeling quite old lately especially now that I’m a mom. I always check my hair for any grey hairs. I swear I’ll be so ready to dye my hair purple with the first glimpse of a white hair. When I look in the mirror I see a different person looking back at me. I really appreciate the comments like ‘you don’t look like a mom,’ but it makes me wonder how moms are suppose to look like. I’m thinking saggy tummy, black circles under the eyes and lots of grey hairs. I don’t want to look like that ever!!

I was daydreaming of La Piazza’s Greek salad. It’s been two days in a row. So today I gave them a call but too bad they don’t deliver at all. I didn’t have much of a choice. I got online and checked out Panini’s menu. I decided I’d order something from there for a change. I ordered their Greek salad and halloumi sandwich. I don’t know how lettuce, parsley and mint leaves mixed with olives plus cheese is called Greek. I really regret ordering the Greek salad. It wasn’t even fresh! It can never compete with La Piazza’s Greek salad. I couldn’t even finish eating what I ordered.
The power generator exploded in the basement and I heard there was fire in the building. Some workers left the building.
My younger brother left to Dubai early in the morning I didn’t get to say my goodbyes. I really feel so guilty now because yesterday he turned 22 and I really wanted to do something special for him but I was so lazy so instead we ordered Indian food for dinner.
Anyways, I can’t explain this. I can’t even stick to my original diet anymore! I’ve been trying so hard I just can’t resist Pez lemon flavoured candy and Tic Tac orange mints. I just love tic tacs. I’ve checked the calorie count too and it’s almost 2-3 calories per piece I believe or maybe much less than that. On the other hand, one roll of Pez is about 35 calories, wow!
I can’t believe this. Teri Hatcher is ranked number 10 in FHM’s 100 sexiest women in the world, while Eva Longoria is number 13!!! Even Britney Spears is not included in the list, she was ranked number one in 2004 and now two years later she doesn’t exist! Come on! Spears or Hatcher?? Last year it was Angelina Jolie and this year she’s number 2. Booo! And number one is Scarlet Johansson and this picture is quite funny. Check out J-Lo’s picture on Fat Lane!
I was checking out Digg.com and I found this article about MyDeathSpace.com. I’ll quote this and it explains everything: “MyDeathSpace.com memorializes deceased MySpace users and picks up where a regular obituary leaves off. Click the MySpace Deaths link at the top to view the latest MySpace Deaths!”
This is so so so weird.
Going 20 years back:
20 Years Ago
I was four years old. I remember when I cried when I missed my first kindergarten’s open day.
15 Years Ago
I was somewhere in Aberdeen, Scotland. I remember going out with my brother and some friends of his in this adventure. We walked our way through a football stadium and we end up in a field. Then, we were chased by a dog followed by a farmer with a rifle. We ran for our lives and I climbed up a fence and my jeans got entangled but I quickly got out of it. I suffered terrible bruises.
10 Years Ago
I had so many friends when I was 14. I can’t keep track of them. I was even addicted to so many video games. I wasn’t doing very well in school and my grades were dropping below the average.
5 Years Ago
My happy years ever. I pulled my grades up and got accepted in Uni. There was this pattern I noticed over the years which helped me understand true friendship more: play mates, work mates, class mates, hang out mates, phone mates, and study mates.
3 Years Ago
I went to London for the very first time and I attended so many excellent plays. Started to dream of my future husband and I questioned my existence in life. I felt lonely. I graduated with honours, and got myself a job. I met my husband and my life just started to brighten up. I suddenly felt like a grownup.
I started blogging out of boredom. I gave birth to my joy and we named him Hassan. I fell in love again.
There’s nothing so special about this year or at least not yet.
I checked out the sale at Souq Sharq. I ate at La Piazza with one of my college friends. Dropped her off and I went to Mohalab to buy my sister a gift certificate from SpaTime for her birthday. I got back home and hugged my baby for as long as I can. For dinner, we ordered food and watched Desperate Housewives. I had a terrible backache and my baby was getting quite fussy. So I had to pause everything and I put my baby to sleep and then I dozed off.
Looking at my life, I haven’t done much with it. I’m not sure I will. I might as well watch more episodes tonight.
I have no plans for tomorrow other than going to a weekly family gathering. I feel like going to the cinema afterwards.
I’ll be a year older.
