Ramadan Kareem

Posted by Dinky Mind on Monday, September 25, 2006 in

The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your forehead and the floor. The one who performs Sajda to ALLAH can stand upto anything.

May this month bring you happiness, and may all of your prayers be accepted. Amen.

Please remember me in your prayers.


How to write a term paper

Posted by Dinky Mind on Tuesday, September 19, 2006 in
1. Sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a well lighted place with plenty of freshly sharpened pencils.
2. Read over the assignment carefully, to make certain you understand it.
3. Walk down to the vending machines and buy some coffee to help you concentrate.
4. Stop off at another floor on the way back and visit with your friend from class. If your friend hasn't started the paper yet either, you can both walk to McDonald's and buy a hamburger to help you concentrate. If your friend shows you his paper, typed, double-spaced, and bound in one of those irritating see-thru plastic folders, drop him.
5. When you get back to your room, sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a clean, well lighted place with plenty of freshly sharpened pencils.
6. Read over the assignment again to make absolutely certain you understand it.
7. Check your e-mail; reply to everyone who sent you letters.
8. You know, you haven't written to that kid you met at camp since fourth grade... You'd better write that letter now and get it out of the way so you can concentrate.
9. Go look at your teeth in the bathroom mirror.
10. Listen to one side of your favorite tape and that's it, I mean it, as soon as it's over you are going to start that paper.
11. Listen to the other side.
12. Check your e-mail again.
13. Rearrange all of your CDs into alphabetical order.
14. Phone your friend on the other floor and ask if he's started writing yet. Exchange derogatory remarks about your teacher, the course, the university, the world at large.
15. Sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a clean, well lighted place with plenty of freshly sharpened pencils.
16. Read over the assignment again; roll the words across your tongue; savor its special flavor.
17. Check your e-mail to make sure no-one sent you any urgent messages since the last time you checked.
18. Check the newspaper listings to make sure you aren't missing something truly worthwhile on TV.
NOTE: When you have a paper due in less than 12 hours, anything on TV from Masterpiece Theater to Sgt. Preston of the Yukon is truly worthwhile, with these exceptions: + Pro Bowler's Tour + any movie starring Don Ameche + Star Trek.
19. Catch the last hour of Soul Brother of Kung Fu on channel 26.
20. Phone your friend on the third floor to see if he was watching. Discuss the finer points of the plot.
21. Go look at your tongue in the bathroom mirror.
22. Look through your roommate's book of pictures from home. Ask who everyone is.
23. Sit down and do some serious thinking about your plans for the future.
24. Open your door and check to see if there are any mysterious, trench-coated strangers lurking in the hall.
25. Sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a clean, well lighted place with plenty of freshly sharpened pencils.
26. Read over the assignment one more time, just for the hell of it.
27. Check your e-mail.
28. Scoot your chair across the room to the window and watch the sunrise.
29. Lie face down on the floor and moan.
30. Leap up and write the paper.
31. Type the paper.

Cheerio folks =)

Why don't we often use the word "Please"? I really dislike (and I know others dislike this thing too) when someone asks me for a favor without saying PLEASE.
Does it take a lot of your energy or is this practice against your set of rules?!

Please, increase the use of the word "Please" in your daily conversations. It gives a nice impression.

Cheerio folks =)


Fundamentals of Finance

Posted by Dinky Mind on Thursday, September 07, 2006 in
We were having our second class of Finance today, when our teacher started bombarding his financial vocabulary on his poor students. At first, we, the ultimate illiterates, tried to hear carefully and make sense out of what he was saying, but at one point, half of the class went asleep. Those sleepy students were frequently disturbed by our teacher's erratic intonation. And finally, we all woke up after some time and really really sat attentive and tried listening to him very carefully. He was trying his level best to teach us the types of Financial Markets, when I, utterly confused and ultra sleepy, looked weirdly at Ossy (sitting next to me) and made a twisted face.

Ossy: *whispers* "What happened? Aren't you getting this thing?"
Me: *confused* "It's like he's teaching us in french."
Ossy: *smiles* "But you do know french, don't you?"

Me: *slaps forehead quietly and wonders, "I should have said Hebrew instead of french"*

Pray that I pass this course.

Cheerio folks =(
