Well... I have some bad news..

and some good news too..
but first let me share with you something about my results:

IT'S A DUD!

the guy was jerking my chain after all..
I will bite him when I go back.

God I am relieved!

but the bad news is nobody knows when the results are coming out and that's that!

hehehe!
sorry for making you worry!

I don't know.

Maybe its a false alarm..

One of my friends sent an offline message about my results..
VERY bad.
I am scared as hell.
No one else of my friends knows the results or even heard when they came out.
I sent to everyone telling them to verify if it is correct, even if it is as bad...
I swear I did well.
If its his idea of a joke he will die a horrible death I swear.
You don't even come close to the feeling I got now. its 5 in the morning and you find something like this, everyone in the world is sleeping and you can't call anyone.
Just verify the thing to kill the nagging hope inside.
Put me to sleep for F**K'S SAKE.

don't cry for me just yet, maybe its a false alarm.
I HATE SURPRISES.

Iraqi national committee elections or something..

Yeah so the elections loom ever so close..
So what?
I didnt pay 500$ and jump the border to vote..
if i wanted to vote, i would've gotten in line with all the other people who're gonna get themselves blown-off the earth to elect someone who will not even look down while he's stepping on them! Ahhh... the sound of friends ripping my head off for what I'm saying!
one friend actually told me: "Hey how are you, I miss you, so-and-so, such-and-such, and VOTE! no excuses now! so-and-so...etc.."
EXCUSE ME?
first, I don't like being ordered around (except by members of the faculty who control my fate in college)
and second, I don't like voting..
so SUE ME!
it is a DEMOCRATIC country right?
and while unlike my brethren I don't use this new-fangled invention as an excuse to do whatever I like, I call upon it now to relieve me from voting for people i don't know, and whom won't probably make a difference anyway..

touche!
so rip me a new one, I don't care any more than I do for your elections!
see ya soon in Hellcity!
umm.. I'm planning a surprise for my significant other, I don't know how, but she caught a sniff and now knows...

feminie intuition.

good thing I already know how to clean the dishes, sweep the floor and do most of the household requirements, so that we won't have to argue about distribution of chores.. naturally and without any argument..
I have my household position firmly secured.. so I won't be kicked out in the cold.. Brrr.

salam to all of you back home, pls wait till I come back to tear me a new one, this is my father's laptop after all and I don't want any obscenities sent my way!

My results are out, I don't know anything about them yet I swear.. Oh the chills the chills
gooseflesh all over.
Keep 'em crossed!
and THEN SOME!

5) Who are you going to pass this (stick this!) to? Three people and why?

SoB- Cuz till now no one put a single techno song on his/her list and I love those too!

I would've said Najma or Lady NIW but they havent been active for a long time..so:

Nabil- Cuz he said once he liked Madonna, I don't, and I want to see what other stuff he likes!

and Liana, Cuz she's a new friend, and also cuz I don't want an all-guy list!

Ahhh..

She's ok!
she was prepped 8am yesterday, she came out in post-op in2pm!
everything went smooth..
until I tried to sleep!
turns out the doctors put some tube in her throat for the oxygen and stuff, and that led to laceration of the larynx or something, she was coughing and wheezing all night long..
told you something will happen! hehe
they kicked us out today morning one hour ago, shes ok now but kinda looks like a pirate!
hehehehe!
thanx to all..
AND LET THE TAGGING BEGIN!

Calm in Chaos.

I hate surprises.
Because they often carry me bad stuff.

an example:
I arrive in Jordan, haven't seen my parents for two months, maybe more.
Something is strange, I can't put my finger on it.
after almost a week here, my mother comes to me this morning and tells me:
"Abdullah, I am having an eye operation TOMORROW!"
What? People whats going on? Everytime I called they told me "All is fine, don't worry" and stuff like that..
turns out she developed some kind of fibrosis in the optical nerve which in addition to rendering her incapable of seeing with her left eye, caused some damage to the retina..
AND SHE HASN'T TOLD ME ALL THIS TIME!

why? they said it was Eid and they didnt want to spoil my vacation..
well HELLO.. when did u plan to tell me?
AFTER SHE GOT BACK FROM THE HOSPITAL?

I am afraid.
But I will be calm tomorrow.
been there, done that!
(this is actually the SECOND TIME they did this kind of thing to me, first was around '98.. I was awake in the hospital for three days. some complications occured, she almost died because some stupid doctor forgot to check if the saline thing they put in your arm was sterilized, It wasnt, and I didnt want to sleep in case something happened.. so there!)

I will be with her for tomorrow, spend the night in the hospital so I wont be able to post till after tomorrow.

I don't want to think what could happen.

I will deliver the good news after tomorrow.

Cheers.
And please NO MORE F**KING SURPRISES!

THEN SOME!

And then again...

I got round to the sleeping trick:
just ram as many Advils down your throat as you can without having to pump out your stomach 15 minutes later, put "An evening with John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess" on your MD-player, and start counting imaginary cars loaded with T.N.T passing over your head..
that's the only way you'll feel at home here, where fighting consists of "staring at someone while putting on an angry expression" ah... La-La land at last.

Not that I take Advil without reason.. I caught a cold bug two days ago, perfect timing, the start of my vay-kay, and i have a broken water tap in my face...

I did something gooooood some 90 mins ago.. I'm not in liberty to tell.. just that I feel goooooooood... I knew that I would.. so good.. so good.. I've got you..
oh well back to the subject:

what was the subject anyway? when was the last time I had a worthy subject?
E.T. phone home.
they put the thing on TV last week.. memories of chocolate and boogers mixed together.
not good ones I admit.

oh, I found out a couple of niiiiiice sites while surfing here, go check the links at ..DUH.. the links section.
pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease.

I need to sleep.
did you know after so much insomnia, your brain matter starts to liquefy? did I write that right?
wright. rite. whatever.

see ya.
Sleepy Sheepy
a.k.a. 13

Too quiet to sleep.

This was like YESTERDAY.
I am not on Iraqi soil right now.
GOOOOOOD.
tried to sleep. tossed and turned all night BECAUSE IT'S SO F**KING QUIET.
Jordanians are so docile. they don't shoot each other.
Strange.

What about the elections?
WHAT DO I CARE?
I don't in all sincerity, believe that my vote will make a difference, or that 26 million votes will make a difference for that matter..
say what you want, but being on the inside gives you a view so much different than that painted by television or politicians.

I need to smoke. been trying to quit since 5 minutes ago.
yeah.
easiest thing in the world to quit smoking.
I quit five or six times already..

see ya later.
hope I cap some zzzz's
and then someeeeeeee...

Ahhhhh..... finally over, and Forgive me father, for I have sinned:

so GIMME SOME!
TODAY MARKED THE END OF THE FIRST SEMESTER EXAMS... big deal. one more to go..
hmmm... so tired so tired..
so like, whats it been like?
tiring.

this morning there was a big explosion down the street from the university.. some windows broke and fell, luckily we werent in class yet, wasnt exam time yet!

on another account, i found out that there is indeed a little guy carrying an AK-47 and an RPG-7 dying to kill people inside all of us.. the reason for this revelation?

a little game called GTA: San Andreas!
I know I was supposed to study and all that crap all this time, but hey, how many times in anybody's life time can you work as an ambulance driver AND a p*mp?
nice.
first sub-missions I completed!

PLAY THIS GAME NOW.
GET IT AND START P*MPING AWAY!

and THEN SOME!
see ya soon.

Oooh!

Feels nice when you're done with the hard part of your exams...
sorry for not writing all this time, but, as you may have guessed, I was (and still am) having my final term exams...
so far, its been ok, today was the hardest one, did kinda ok...
one last exam remaining.. that'll be tuesday.
anyways, sorry for being so brief, but like someone long ago once said:
"I'm late, I'm late I'm late I'm late.."

excuse me and all.
see ya tuesdays

oh and although I dont believe in luck, do cross your fingers for me!

smell y'all later.
AND THEN SOME!

Each man gives a story:

check out the ORIGINAL site at www.ahajokes.com, didnt have time to fix a link, will do so later!


Three men were standing in line to get into heaven one day. Apparently it had been a pretty busy day, though, so Peter had to tell the first one, "Heaven's getting pretty close to full today, and I've been asked to admit only people who have had particularly horrible deaths. So what's your story?"

So the first man replies: "Well, for a while I've suspected my wife has been cheating on me, so today I came home early to try to catch her red-handed. As I came into my 25th floor apartment, I could tell something was wrong, but all my searching around didn't reveal where this other guy could have been hiding. Finally, I went out to the balcony, and sure enough, there was this man hanging off the railing, 25 floors above ground! By now I was really mad, so I started beating on him and kicking him, but wouldn't you know it, he wouldn't fall off. So finally I went back into my apartment and got a hammer and starting hammering on his fingers. Of course, he couldn't stand that for long, so he let go and fell -- but even after 25 stories, he fell into the bushes, stunned but okay. I couldn't stand it anymore, so I ran into the kitchen, grabbed the fridge and threw it over the edge where it landed on him, killing him instantly. But all the stress and anger got to me, and I had a heart attack and died there on the balcony."

"That sounds like a pretty bad day to me," said Peter, and let the man in.

The second man comes up and Peter explains to him about heaven being full, and again asks for his story.

"It's been a very strange day. You see, I live on the 26th floor of my apartment building, and every morning I do my exercises out on my balcony. Well, this morning I must have slipped or something, because I fell over the edge. But I got lucky, and caught the railing of the balcony on the floor below me. I knew I couldn't hang on for very long, when suddenly this man burst out onto the balcony. I thought for sure I was saved, when he started beating on me and kicking me. I held on the best I could until he ran into the apartment and grabbed a hammer and started pounding on my hands. Finally I just let go, but again I got lucky and fell into the bushes below, stunned but all right. Just when I was thinking I was going to be okay, this refrigerator comes falling out of the sky and crushes me instantly, and now I'm here."

Once again, Peter had to concede that that sounded like a pretty horrible death.

The third man came to the front of the line, and again Peter explained that heaven was full and asked for his story.

"Picture this," says the third man, "I'm hiding inside a refrigerator..."

Welcome '05!

I'm late as usual, I know...
the world hasnt changed much (till now) and believe it or not, this time I have SOME hope!
yeah yeah whatever..
anyways, here goes:
I started the year in good style, HAVING MY FINAL EXAMS!
today was the first, I did kinda ok, will have good survival rate I hope!
anyways, These things (exams) end on the 18th... so I'll be busy like crazy..
good thing that I studied SOME of the subjects upfront!
hey lemme tell you a joke (silly and OLD, but no matter.. I like to impose my demented genius upon others..)

One day Jungle jim lost his chimp, it ran away and climbed a tree, so he went round to his friend Tom's house and asked him for help returning the monkey...
so the next day Tom came round with handcuffs, a baseball bat, a shotgun and a leashed Chihuahua..

Jim: What are those things for?

Tom: Look here, I'll take the bat and go climb the tree, when I hit the monkey with the bat, it will fall, so you release the Chihuahua, it'll go for the monkey's nuts, the monkey will put his hands down to protect them, then you go and handcuff him..OK?

Jim: Ok, but what do I do with the shotgun?

Tom: If I fall, shoot the Chihuahua!

ho. ho. ho.
I know its not funny but I cant help it.
oh well..
thanx to all first and foremost, for supporting me, correcting me, and being good friends!
Semper Fi.
