Thank you God..
At last a sense of reality came back to me..
I was out in the streets, I just came and heard, no saw them on television... God it felt great..
I make a faint wish that all the violence will stop soon, I know it won't come true, but I say it anyway.
The Simonas are free.
Thank you God for answering all our prayers..


I don't know if anyone remembers this, but a few days ago, while i was dazed because of nicotine-deprivation (I quit recently.. AGAIN. For the 1297th time.) i suddenly had a childhood flashback, you know, the ones where you suddenly remember the name of that faceless kid who crapped himself in kindergarten, like that.
I had a vision, I had a name carved in my brain with burning letters.. it said:
The WEIRDEST cartoon I'll ever see, the one who made this had to be under the influence of some mind-expanding narcotic! check it out! (the link above has the FULL song lyrics for the title theme!) here's another site!

Back in the Saddle

Yay! Today was the first day of the new college year! Just got my lecture schedule, seems ok at first glance, but as usual, the department will manage to screw it up before long..After that went to Karrada to buy various electronic parts for some project (NO IT IS NOT A TIME-BOMB) I don't remember those being that expensive, maybe its BECAUSE of all the others buying them TO MAKE BOMB-TIMERS out of them! Who knows? This is IRAQ!

Well, I am certainly quaking in my boots at the prospect of starting my MSc and all, I don't want to fail, I CANNOT FAIL.. everything i want to do in life depends on this coming year.. Ohhhh.
Anyways, everything to its time.

38. Staying alive after writing this.
39. Not watching AL-Bourtuqala (reference here) again.

Slither slither...

One of the better bands I've heard since ages is VR, otherwise known as Velvet Revolver.. This band is a throwback to the good old 80's Rock, Their official site is one of the best designed sites I've seen around, It takes ages to load but its worth it, definitely...
Somewhere here there's a link to it, Go check it out, Oh Yeah, you have to be 18+ cuz of some explicit material inside the site.. if you can't, go check their album at Alan's Melody in Arasat (Iraqis only)
its worth it and THEN SOME!

peace and all.


I know its too late to write about this, WAY TOO LATE, but hey, I only saw the *&^*% thing five minutes ago!
Around 4AM tonight on Nilesat, there was a Marilyn Monroe movie on MBC2 and since I adore her, I was watching, then came the commercial break, and since I have a chronic phobia of those since the days before the war, when all commercials on tv talked about the same kind of shampoo presented by different girls with varying waistlines that go from "slightly overweight" to "Queen Mary II"
Ok, so I grab the remote and start zapping, then i think: "Hey its been some days since i last saw the news, let's go raise my blood pressure.." so i flip to the nearest iraqi station (i dont trust jazeera or arabia or any other non-iraqi news channel, i dont even trust the iraqi news channels for that matter) a station called Sharqiya (in Arabic: "The Eastern" or "Of the East") and suddenly I am speechless..
Now i've heard this song on the radio before and i've heard my buddies talk about it, but since i was in the kingdom of far far away (not that far) i was blessed with avoiding all iraqi music for three months.. I digress.
What I saw was nothing short of epic, the culmination of 4000 years of civilisation told (or rather WIGGLED) in 3-4 minutes..
A Struggle between human Churchill tanks (of the 6th Guards Tank Brigade) to decide who can shake more flesh on-screen,
THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE. (Historical Refrence: WW II)
Ok, What i saw on the screen was simply: AL-BOURTUQALA! (The Orange, YES it means the fruit.)
This is what ALL music should be like, a senseless, tasteless, shameless, ARTless show of potruding, brimming-over FLESH. Ten Belly dancers each with the shape and mass of an M-1 Abrams Main Battle Tank, wobbling around a singer which looks like a Bradley himself for 3 minutes, all the while he's singing: "Oh thee Orange, What had you to do with that nice guy, Oh how you torture him" over and over again.. the orange under discussion is the Leader Tan.. Sorry, Dancer of the group.. she is dressed in an orange THING that can be classified as clothes..OH THE HORROR, I AM STILL WASHING MY EYES WITH SALT-WATER..

What kind of degraded, brainless, glue-sniffing son of a diseased ***** would direct this video, much less AIR IT ON TELEVISION?
Is this really a marker of what's "in" these days?

You know what the real disaster is?
From ALL my friends, AND EVERYONE I TALK TO, Only Me and another kindred spirit spoke against this song.. this applies to my WHOLE COUNTRY! (And if I know anything, THE WHOLE ARAB NATION! - males only, females NOT included, unless they are.... Anyway!)
I HAVE TO BE WRONG HERE, Cuz no way in blue hell can ALL arabic-speaking males be wrong and only two are right, right? (And I'm as straight as a ray of light, me and my friend! We like girls, HONEST!)

ARGH! I'm being brain-washed!

please help.


Chained Alice..

Today I went out for a drive, guess what? THERE IS STILL A SUN OUT THERE!
Seems that Listening to Cantrell's guitar cries has gotten me true blue..
One of the greatest guitarists around is Jerry Cantrell, formerly of Alice in Chains..
Anybody seen their Unplugged Concert? I consider it to be the best after Nirvana's..
most of their songs are grim, lyrical, moody, and very much suitable to anyone wanting escape from his own darkness.
Don't know why but in the last couple of weeks i discovered i pretty much gave up on everything, i only thank God because i think i'm starting to find my way back again.

Them Bones

I believe.....
them bones are me.
Some say we're born into the grave
I feel so alone, gonna end up aBig ole pile a them bones
Dust rise.. right on over my time
Empty fossil of the new scene
I feel so alone, gonna wind up aBig ole pile a them bones
Toll due.
bad dream come true.
I lie dead gone under red sky
I feel so alone.
I feel so alone, gonna end up aBig ole pile a them bones...

I want to be DOOMed...

In this violence drenched hellhole, when you are stuck in traffic for three hours trying to get back home, and suddenly the idiot in front of you suddenly decides to do a U-turn in the middle of the highway for no reason better than he wants to buy a bag of dried bread, a pack of cigarettes, or 5 litres of black-market gasoline, and as a result the jam is further worsened; You suddenly feel the urge to pull something (varies according to the time stuck in traffic and how many people are honking behind you) from under the seat and distenegrate the BAS**RD into several million parts.. Or reach out and stuff your hand down his throat and pull his balls out... Ohhh good..
however, such activites will most certainly land you in Abu-Ghareb (refrence: Sodom&Gemorrah crossed with Shawshank correction facility) and that is not the best of endings for ANY kind of story...
DOOM 3 !


Well well, just when you thought it was safe to go visit ur grandparent's house.... BOOM! a car explodes in the next street taking lives and causing further pain and destruction to this ravaged place.
I should be glad no one from my family got hurt, esp. my elderly grandparents and my baby cousins, well, to tell the truth.. I CANNOT FEEL ANYMORE.
Ok, so they got away today, SO WHAT? they are bound to get it next time around, and I am tired of worrying EVERYTIME this happens, SO, I decided to stop caring who dies and who doesn't.. its like Russian Roulette, but played with FIVE bullets instead of ONE.
Before, if you kept to your house you had a chance of seeing the light of another day, NOW? the only safe place is six feet under..
I don't have shellshock thank you very much, I would really appreciate it if i did.
Wake me up when its over.
Oh yeah, College is three days away! Yay! Managed to beg some fellow students to come pick me up first day cuz I don't fancy taking the idea of spending the hour and a half ride to college alone with nothing but the dumb-ass radio jock screaming in my head..
I'll talk about the radio dudes later.


Yeah Yeah, I'm still alive, so what? Big deal..
Imagine crossing the Iraqi border at 3:20AM with AC/DC's Highway to Hell playing on the Discman... What a great feeling.
Well, went back to college (didnt start yet but i attended my graduation ceremony), nothing else to do these days except wait wait WAIT... Wait for the electricity to come back, wait for dinner to get ready, wait for the grim reaper to come take me meet my maker.. ARGH.
Ooh the things i would LOVE to rant about... Ooh...


I got another *&^*%$ message from one of my friends saying something like "YahooMail will stop being a free service and they will charge like 10$ or something PER MONTH cuz they exceeded the user limit, so if you dont send this message to all the people on your contact list, we will hunt you to the ends of the earth like a rabid dog, shoot you and rid humanity from the likes of you and all spawn that will spring from within your loins.. something close to that anyway."
Don't believe me? well, bear with me here and let me explain what i think about this farce:
lets say this given message's size is not larger than 10kB, OK?
and that YOU have NOT MORE than 50 contacts on the average, OK?
and those contacts in the next layer do not have more than 50 contacts, and so does every layer and so on...
well, if i send to all and THEY send to ALL, this is like the following:
10kB x 50 x 50 x 50 x .... etc... DO THE MATH, PEOPLE!
and for a simple 3-layer message, the 10kb suddenly baloons to something like 1.25 GIGA BYTES OF SPAM!!!
this is crazy, and the people who believe said messages are too!
I mean, i've been recieving such threats from like, a year ago, first: Yahoo was gonna shut down ON CHRISTMAS, and you have to send to all,
then: Yahoo MESSENGER was shutting down on March, and you had to send to all to avoid being deleted..
then again: in July, Yahoo messenger was "re-calibrating" (or something like it) it's membership links, and you had to send to all again to ensure you are SEEN on the server and thus verify you are still an active member..
and NOW: (actually september had two such threats) YahooMAIL has reached its TWO MILLION people membership and will shut you down if you dont send to all, what kind of an idiot would believe such crap? THE UNITED STATES ALONE HAS MORE PEOPLE ON YAHOO-MAIL EXCEEDING TWO MILLION ALREADY! (not to mention CHINA, The EU, Russia, the Middle East, and the rest of the world!)
Actually, Do you know that you are helping shutting down said servers (chat, mail, etc..) by SENDING this kind of message? Yes, imagine what kind of pressure will be put on the server each time this message is sent and forwarded to all... So, in order to relieve pressure, and keep the service running fast, the people at YAHOO! have to get bigger, faster servers, ok? well, BIGGER+FASTER=$$$$ MUCHOS DINEROS $$$
AND THEY HAVE TO CHARGE US FOR IT... Money does NOT grow on trees..
OK, do us all a favor, and make sure you NEVER SEND ANY MESSAGE LIKE THIS AGAIN!

Ohh the horror THE HORROR! Anyways, I would like to thank my parents for bearing with me this whole time, I know I made these two months (more like 3) hell for them and somehow I dont feel a bit guilty about it, but sorry anyway..

If you have 5$ (or its equivalent, and i'm not talking about the boys back home who get pirated DVDs for 1$) and you're either an ALIENS or a PREDATOR fan, WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT GO WATCH AliensVs.Predator..
This movie proved to be much bigger a disappointment than i ever thought possible.. This is a movie for pimple-faced kids who missed the previous greater works of Ridley Scott, James Cameron, and the MASTER, John McTiernan... Ahh
As one insightful (and no-less irritated by this fiasco than me) reviewer wrote on yahoo movies, said: "AVP, however, looks to me like it was tailor-made for fans(or recent fans) of The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. This movie is obviously made for kids ages 8-15, because I believe they are they only ones who will be writing positive reviews of this movie."
Y'know, no matter what I will say here, I will never be able to display a better image than this same guy whom i quoted earlier, either cuz i'm so sleepy (4:20 AM local time) and/or I've ranted about so many things here that i'll never find original words till some time, so what i'll do is re-tell what he wrote: (Actually, COPY-PASTE, but hey, i used a softer word.. so there!)
Ok, here goes:

"Simply an Insult

After just watching the movie...I have this to say.

I am a huge fan of the Alien series, and a pretty big fan of Predator. For an indicator of how long I have been a fan of the series, I will tell you first off that I saw Aliens when it came out on video tape in the late 80s and saw Alien 3 in theatres, I obviously saw Alien after its mid-70's release, and it scared me like few movies have ever been able to do since. I saw Predator later, and very much regard it as a good movie, in that it told a well thought-out story, had excellent characters, and an original plot, not to mention a great villain. Both of these series of movies were obviously adult-oriented. AVP, however, looks to me like it was tailor-made for fans(or recent fans) of The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. This movie is obviously made for kids ages 8-15, because I believe they are they only ones who will be writing positive reviews of this movie.

I believe a making a good movie means telling a good story, and telling it well. This movie has neither a good story, or, as it seems, a good story teller. What made Alien and Aliens stand out as excellent movies was the fact that Ridley Scott and James Cameron are superb story tellers, which means they make movies that resonate with the audience. The characters in the movie(AVP) are, at best, instantly forgettable, and the dialogue is stupid, unoriginal, and gives no indication any of the characters have a personality. Anderson makes a very feeble attempt to get you to care a little about Lex and Sebastian by giving them each(and a few other characters) painfully boring monologues about "My dad died on a mountain, blah blah here, cliché line here, meaningless dribble there", and letting them have(a few) more than 4 lines to read. What happened to good movies with memorable characters, good plot, and good dialogue? Are those times past us now? Since when does a single monologue pass as character development?

I have no idea of the names of any of the other characters whatsoever, except Charles Bishop Weyland. Which brings me to that point. Lance's character was horribly dry, unemotional, and when he dies, I didn't care, or even notice really. Not only that, the movie tells you nothing of his character, except you assume he is rich beyond all comprehension, and he does something with robots. Which to me, seems like just a passing, muttered excuse to have Lance Hendrickson in the movie. There is nothing even remotely clever about his wasted role, and no discernable relation to Bishop, the android of Aliens, is made. It is only assumed, and definitely not explored or even attempted to explore. It also completely disregards the fact that in Alien 3, a man (also played by Hendrickson) claimed he was the designer of the Bishop just makes no sense, and it just kind of tries to spoon feed you that for some reason, this is the real creator, and not the guy in Alien 3, and doesn't ever even try to tell you why its right.

There are many many many wasted scenes, but one that particularly comes to mind is the sacrificial chamber scene. The scientists seemed to already know they were in danger when the eggs arose, although they should not have had any clue whatsoever about what the eggs were. They showed no curiosity, and immediately drew weapons. They then were easily facehugged, and quickly spawned aliens faster than in any earlier Alien film. Literally within minutes of being impregnated there was an embryo bursting from the victims chest...which begs the question, why the hell would you bring weapons to a remote location in Antarctica, and not bring exploration or excavation equipment of any kind? I donÂ’t think automatic rifles(with laser sights) and 45 cal. automatic pistols are common equipment for an archaeological expedition. Makes no sense...and some of you may end up accusing me of nitpicking, and you're damn right, I expected a brilliant movie to rank with the works of James Cameron, Ridley Scott and John McTiernan because thatÂ’s what was promised, and yes those movies are what I judge this one by. There was not a single scene in any of those movies that was blatantly unexplained, or was not logical in terms of the story. There was so very much that was illogical and wrong with this movie.

As for the Predators...of the three, two were brutally slaughtered very quickly, it seemed as if they had no chance at all. The Predator in the original movie was a fast, agile hunter that used clever tactics and stealth to quickly bring down an entire special forces unit, one at a time, in the heavy jungles of South America, by hand, alone. There were 3 of them in this movie, and it seems that the single predator in the first movie could have killed, not only all of the people in this movie by itself, but all three of the Predators in this movie by itself. These predators were slow, easily sneaked up upon, and had no seeming idea of what was going on, but just seemed to kill because thatÂ’s what they felt like doing...or...something. In the original Predator, it was coming AFTER Arnold and his team, and there wasnÂ’t anything they could do about it. In this movie, the Predators just kinda...well...acted like guys in suits. The Original Predator could leap 20 feet in the air from tree to tree, these could kinda wobble around and run kinda. The Original Predator was like a ghost, these were just dead. And things just went from cheesy to outright goofy when Lex and the 'hero' Predator(who, without hesitation, murdered about 4 people a few minutes earlier) became friends and teamed up against the Queen...I thought they might even kiss at one point. And they even had a slo-mo running from danger scene reminiscent of...any movie where a big dude and his hot chick co-star triumphantly defeat whatever it was they're supposed to defeat, and are running from an inevitable explosion.

I basically take this movie as an insult, a spit in the face, of all serious fans like myself. The end is obviously open for a sequel...I say, bring back Ridley Scott or James Cameron for the love of all that is holy...because they are the only ones that could save this franchise now. I only wish they could have had a triumphant end, and not silly garbage like this.

Yeah brother, give it to them! That's the spirit I like and encourage here at good ol' GET SOME!

THE DAILYSHOW with Jon Stewart..


talk about freedom of the press! Man I was watching this dude cooking Good Ole' G. W. on a steady fire and all the time there was like a voice in my head saying "OFF WITH HIS HEAD! (Stew not G.W.)" Man that dude got some really BIG brass ones! I mean, to rant at Howdy-Dowdy "Bushie" (that's what Laura's calling him, HIS DAUGHTERS SAID SO! I swear I didn't make that up) is one thing, but to go on CNN LIVE and rant at him, that is something else, something that requires the aforementioned BRASS ONES. I dunno, maybe its me, maybe cuz I come from a country (IRAQ: former "AXIS-OF-EVIL" active member and current goody-goody state with oh-so-bad neighbors) where having the mere notion that the esteemed head-of-state (holy, immortal, and forever young) would actually connect with the people (us, mortals, common crap) by sharing with them the experience of using the toilet, would have you thrown away from the sun for good! (and NOT in the 3DoorsDown fluffy tear-jerker album way!)

"So who do you think is better?" You ask? Well my friends, let me enlighten you a little, BOTH THE "BEFORE" AND "AFTER" STORIES OF IRAQ ARE TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN.. AND A TRICK ONE AT THAT, ONE WHICH HAS HEADS ON BOTH FACES.. Oh well, I was ranting about CNN and somehow I got here! To end a short story LONG, I say this: SALUTE TO CNN and SALUTE FOR Mr. JON STEWART of the DAILYSHOW.. KEEP ON ROCKIN' IN THE FREE WORLD!

this is what i call freedom! HAH!

FRUIT-CAKE!! (NOT ME! I was Actually Chocolate on Chocolate)

Cake Personality Test
Hey, I saw got this from a friend who had nothing better to do and I decided to share with u the priceless experience of discovering yourself more deeply (PRICELESS cuz if anyone actually paid for this crap he/she would be legally insane!)
No cheating. Take this cake personality test, then you could send
this via email (if you like, which i doubt you will!)
If you were buying a cake and you had your choice of the
following which would you choose?
         1. Fairy cakes
         2. Brownies
         3. Lemon Meringue
         4. Vanilla with Chocolate Icing
         5. Strawberry Cheese Cake
         6. Chocolate on Chocolate
         7. Ice Cream
         8. Carrot Cake
         9. All of the above
OK - Now that you've made your choice, this is what research
says about you!
NO.... you can't change your mind once you scroll down!
1. Fairy cakes ... Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all warm and
fuzzy things. A little nutty on occasion. Sometimes you need an ice
cream at the  end of the day. Others perceive you as being child-like and
immature at times.

2. Brownies... You are adventurous, love new ideas, are a
champion of underdogs and a slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up,
you're quick to defend. A strong personality. You have a unique sense
of humour and direction. You tend to be very loyal.

3. Lemon Meringue... Smooth, sexy, & good with your hands, you
are an excellent after-dinner speaker and a good teacher. But don't
try to do more than one thing at a time! A bit of a diva at times, but you
have a close circle of good friends.

4. Vanilla with Chocolate Icing ... Fun-loving, sassy, humorous.
Not very grounded in life, very indecisive and lack motivation.
Everyone enjoys being around you, but you are a practical joker. Others should
be cautious in annoying you, however, you are a friend for life.

5. Strawberry Cheese Cake... Romantic, warm, loving. You care
about other people and can be counted on in a crisis. You tend to
melt. You can be overly-emotional and annoying at times.

6. Chocolate on Chocolate ... Sexy, always ready to give and
receive. Very creative, adventurous, ambitious and passionate. You
have a cold exterior but are warm on the inside. Not afraid to take chances.
Will not settle for anything average in life.

7. Ice Cream... You like sports, but you prefer to watch rather than
participate. You don't like to give up the remote control. You're
straight to the point and no-nonsense and attract like-minded people. You tend
to be self-centred and high maintenance.

8. Carrot Cake... You are a very open, loving person, who likes to
laugh. People enjoy your company because you make things fun without trying.
You are very warm-hearted and a good listener, yet distinctly quirky at
times. You have many loyal friends.

9. All of the above........... You're just a greedy git... !
Like it? Yeah, didn't think you would! thanx for wasting valuable time on my site reading this!

I am scared. REALLY scared. What comes after college? Where will I find work amongst all the bombings and assasinations? Seems the only way is OUT, But is OUT really better? People keep saying that tomorrow will be better, well, YEAH SURE, if tomorrow was 15 years from now! .... This is a problem of a whole generation, we were born in the middle of a war, we grew up during another one, and finally, we graduated months after a third one ended! Peace is an alien word to us!

Ask a kid in the street to draw something on a paper, I GUARANTEE, REGARDLESS of gender, the first thing that comes out is either a tank, a soldier, or a missile.. This is way more deep than just changing regimes or "KEEPING THE FREE WORLD SAFE" (Yeah whatever), War has become a WAY OF LIFE. Among all the killing and maiming, something was lost, that thing, I found out some time ago, is the ability to see ahead, see past just tomorrow and the day after it, think AND plan our lives..

Anyways, I've got two more years to waste before thinking about this again, but something tells me this issue is gonna be like the ghost of christmas past, present, and future all rolled into one, haunting my A$$ off day and night.

Well, To see the future more clearly, you have to get a new pair of glasses, Right?

You REALLY need to wash your mouth WITH BATTERY ACID.

Like I need someone to call me a MO**ER-F***ER as a GREETING! When will that kind of people learn that saying words of that caliber only show others how afraid and unsecure they feel? Well, I got a friend like this and each time I try to tell him he goes ballistic and throws more words at me! Anybody suffer from this too? Anybody know a way to solve this? Send me, I'm all clicks.
(Oh and UnderTakeR, I WAS talking about u!)

the HO' -lympics!

Yeah that's right, this ain't got nothing to do with the olympics, which I admit (regardess of my dislike for all non-contact sports) were good.. No people, this rant has to do with the farce-parade that was called Mtv VMA '04! God! Who dresses these people? to think like someone would actually walk the streets wearing what ANYONE there was wearing! (Honorable exceptions include Bruce Willis and Sean -P.Diddy- Combs)
What are these guys thinking?
I was even ashamed to see Christina Aguilera, MY Christina Aguilera, drag Nelly by his willy, or when Jet came around to receive their bauble, I mean, who am I to tell people NOT to get stoned AND I consider Jet to be a return to the good old days of Aerosmith and RollingStones, but please, next time take whatever you take to get HIGH, AFTER the ceremony, not DURING!
the funniest sight had to be when MM (Marilyn Manson for those not in the know) came with some chic to present some band, she was PETRIFIED of him! And the band he presented turned out to be some Demis Roussos Wannabes dressed in bedsheets the color of the rainbow... PATHETIC, as if THE DARKNESS were not enough!
Well, that's what happens when an 80's metal fan watches Mtv... I can't do this to myself anymore... Nurse, my medicine please... NURRRRSSSSEE.... ARGH!
g2g, things to do, people to eat..

Welcome to the JUNGLE! part 1

Hello my fellow (non-arabic speaking) adventurers:
Since I am a very VERY nice person, I took it upon myself to introduce you to some NICE words used in modern day Iraq to express some rather nice feelings and emotions, I will write the word in english, as close to the arabic spelling as possible, then the meaning in english and wether its a verb or a noun, adj, etc.. and then its use in an ENGLISH sentence, believe me it works! Well then, shall we?
(btw, i cant do RUDE words cuz girls from my class might decide to drop here, so, if u want them, send me an email and i'll mail them to you soon as I'm done with them! )
Shroogi (shru-gee...the "g" is like the first one in GARAGE) :
 NOUN -The closest meaning to this word in english is unrefined-lazy ass-scumbag-who dresses like a traffic light (wow, all that in one word?)
this is used as follows: when seeing someone dressed rather like ANYONE who attended this year's MTV VMA awards (which is also something I WILL rant about in future releases) u go like: "Hey, what are you? Shroogi?"
M'aydi (Mmm-aie-dee) :
NOUN - Same as Shroogi above. 
Also used for the same purpose, in fact, these two words are synonyms.
Ishtah (Ish-tahh) :
VERB - This means something like pi**-off, or f**k-off or go the f**k away... nice word commonly used, even to describe oneself.(in this case replace the I with an A and pronounce Ash-tahh). it is used like: "Guys, I have college early tomorrow, so I have to ashtah" or "Ishtah from here you fool.. or I will ____... " (fill the blank with an every-day four letter word and some other suffixes that are appropriate to the event)
Nachir (Na-chirr) :
ADJECTIVE - This describes someone who is utterly and insanely fearless, like: "Hey did you see that guy who stole that old lady's purse in front of the cops? by God he is nachir.."
Nagari (Na-ga-ree) :
ADJECTIVE - This describes a distinguished theif.. like "Our neighbor stole a bus from the union after the war, what a brave nagari he is.."
Qaffas (Kaf-fas) :
ADJECTIVE - Used to describe a master of trickery, with whom you dont know you've been slipped a mickey even long after he's gone from the scene. something like: "You sold your old 1979 crate-of-a-toyota to that man for 5000$? What a great Qaffas you are, I would be honored if u take me as a student.."
and the great one, left till the end of part 1:
HAWASIM! (Hawa-simm) :
ADJECTIVE, NOUN, EVERYTHING! - The last US-IRAQI farce of a war was dubbed in the beginning by the former head of state saddam hussein as "the battle of hawasim", the real meaning in classic arabic is something like "the end of all", BUT, after the fall of the regime, and the chaos that spread around the country, people started looting everything from buildings to cars to locomotive-engines, everything and anything, INCLUDING the not-so-proverbial KITCHEN SINK (I saw someone lugging a sink around, I swear by God!) So, since the war had that name, and these people did this after the war, they were eventually and unavoidably dubbed "HAWASIM". This word describes someone who would even stop to steal the tooth-pic you have in your mouth after stealing your house, your car, your money, your food AND your clothes! Or someone who made his money from stealing everything from you after the war... this is now considered a MODERN CLASSIC among iraqi people and is one of the priceless additions to the everyday language of Iraq! why? because of its unbelievable versatility! (and the fact that there must be like a million actual HAWASIM people now, its evident from the amount of BMWs and Mercedes's that are in the street now!) it is used in ANYWAY YOU LIKE! from:
"Hey, HAWASIM!" (to call a friend whom you like)
"What? you think I'm HAWASIM?" (to explain where you suddenly got the money to buy 3 BMWs, a yacht and a mansion after you used to sell Kerosene from a Donkey-driven cart)
"How did you manage to finish your BSc graduation project, Abdullah? (that's me)"
and I answer: "HAWASIM!"
ok, thats the end of the first part! wait for the upcoming installments!
smell y'all later!
