We've moved from NHS (Navy Housing Scheme) to Askari IV. 6 years ago we shifted from NORE-I (Naval Officers' Residential Estate I) to NHS. Though NHS isn't bad, I still miss my 10 years in NORE-I. I cried badly when we had to move to NHS. I miss those big parks and squirrels and all the lovely birds of NOR. And when we shifted in NHS, there wasn't a single bird!!! Why? Because there weren't any trees. NHS is still a dull place. The best thing about it is our house. I love my things and I love my house (it's still ours, Alhamdolillah). I still remember the first day we moved to NORE-I and NHS, and now Askari. I like our Askari home. Haven't found any flaw yet, just that I don't like the cupboard handles and...well, that's it. Askari is a very well-established colony, NHS isn't. I miss my NHS house :(

Cheerio folks :(

After a long gap, I played a lot of Table Tennis matches yesterday. Won many and lost two. So, the moment I reached home, I just threw myself in the bed and curled up in the blanket to give some rest to my aching body. Phew! It was a bad day. I felt so weak that once it seemed to me I would never be able to get up from my bed, but Alhamdolillah I'm still alive! So, i got into bed at 5:30 pm Thursday evening and got out at 6:oo am Friday morning!!! And I slept for almost 12 hours!!! Woohooo ;-)

Cheerio folks =)

P.S.: I'm again sleepy :(

...when it was raining heavily




Western Monsoons

Posted by Dinky Mind on Tuesday, December 05, 2006 in
Yesterday and day before yesterday it rained quite heavily here in Karachi. On Sunday, it started raining at around 2 pm and did not stop till Monday evening! On Monday morning, mom suggested I shouldn't go to the university, but I had to go since I had a quiz and had to give a presentation. The teachers did not come, so no quiz and no presentation. But, we all had a hell lot of fun in the chilling wind. Yup people, I'm one of those crazy peoples who loves to play in the rain and enjoy the most in the chilly wind. Due to some serious restrictions, I couldn't even dare to take a promenade in that wonderful rain :'( I missed it, but besides that, I enjoyed the wind. It was just too awesome-ish! Although my hands and feet were freezing, but I still stayed in the galleries for long. Winter rains are fun. I pray it rains today as well, but I know it wouldn't. At 4:30 pm, we finally headed towards our buses and vans. It was so much fun to take that long route to the bus, splashing water, and getting beaten by the heavy pellets of rain. Oh my my, I had a lot of fun, and I can never forget it.

Anyways, our bus started moving at 4:45 pm and I reached home at 6 pm! We had to take longer routes in order to avoid traffic jams and rain flooded streets. It was as if we were travelling from Hyderabad to Karachi rather than from Karsaz Road to Clifton! On our way, I slid the window and tried to inhale all the chilly wind, but after some time I couldn't. Well, I am a human and I feel cold too! Anyways, when I reached home, half of the house was covered in darkness. Partial power failure! Fortunately there was power in my room. I took a burning-water shower to stop myself trewmbling from all that cold. Blood drained from my feet and they were about to freeze. My hands got a little life when I heated them on a tiny candle flame. Had a tiny piece of Aaloo ka paratha (yummm yummm) because I had had enough of heavy food at the university. And then, the best of winters... I slept at 7:30 pm and woke up at 6:30 am this morning! Ah, wonderful!!! =)

Cheerio folks ;)


25 ways to confuse your professors

Posted by Dinky Mind on Wednesday, November 29, 2006 in
1. Brush your teeth during class. While doing so, raise your hand as if you have a question, and mumble your question incoherently while brushing, spewing toothpaste all over the place. If your professor objects to your actions, go on a tirade about proper oral hygiene.

2. Sit way at the back of the room, up against the wall, to get as far away from your professor as possible. While he/she is lecturing, shout out things like, "What!?" and "Speak up! You're mumbling!" If your professor advises you to sit closer to the front, tell him/her you can't because you're scouting the room for "assassins."

3. If you have an early morning class, get there before anyone else, and bring a pillow, some blankets, an air mattress, and an alarm clock. Wear your pajamas. Lie down on the air mattress with the pillow and the blankets and act like you're asleep. Have the alarm set for about two minutes into class. When it goes off, preferably very loudly, hit the "snooze" button and go back to sleep. Keep doing so for the duration of the class.

4. Dispute everything your professor says, no matter how simple. Try to get him/her to "prove" everything to you. Rant and rave about what a big liar your professor is. Yell at students who are taking notes, saying, "Stop writing down all these lies!"

5. Show up to class about ten minutes late. Ride into the room on a bicycle, yell, "Look out!", and crash into the blackboard. Get up, take a seat, and act like nothing happened. Do this every day.

6. Keep "accidentally" setting fires at your desk. Burn notebooks, papers, or whatever you have handy. Whenever you start a fire, no matter how small it is, start yelling, "Fire! Fire!" and run out of the room in a panic. Don't return for the rest of class.

7. Hide somewhere inside the classroom. Wait for your professor to take attendance. Don't come out when he/she calls your name. Halfway through class, jump out and yell, "Just kidding! I'm here! Fooled you again!" Sit down and be quiet for the rest of class.

8. Wrap yourself in bandages and come to class in a wheelchair. Throughout class, cry a lot and moan things like, "Why me?" and "Please kill me!" Get up during class, like you're going to miraculously start walking. Instead, fall down, cry out in pain, and wait for someone to help you back up. When class is over, say, "I feel better now," leap up, and run home.

9. Come to class with a jar full of angry hornets. Five minutes into class, release the hornets, scream, and run away.

10. Bring a vacuum to class. Halfway through class, stand up and start using it. If your professor objects, explain that you "can't stand sitting in this pigsty any longer." Keep vacuuming, grumbling angrily.

11. Bring a small cactus to class with you. Raise your hand, and when you're called on, say that the cactus has a question. Turn and look at the cactus, as if you're waiting for it to say something. After a few moments, shrug, and wait for your professor to move on. Do this once a day, and become increasingly irritated with the cactus every time, sighing heavily and giving it evil looks when it fails to "speak." When you leave the room after class, start yelling at the cactus, "I can't believe you embarrassed me AGAIN...."

12. Every time your professor stutters, do a shot. If he/she objects, explain that drinking games make the class more interesting.

13. When your professor gives you a syllabus, take it home, correct it, give it a grade, and return it to the professor. Demand extra credit.

14. Come to class every day wearing scary Halloween masks. Try to get your professor to guess who you are. Shoot him/her with a water pistol, scream, and run around the room knocking things over. Say, "Pretty scary, huh?"

15. Get the whole class to show up a few minutes early, and throw a surprise party for your professor. Insist that you can't start class until he/she has a piece of cake. Keep asking people when the strippers are going to arrive.

16. Instead of taking notes, do an abstract painting during every class. Call the paintings things like, "Professor Acting Like Mr. Know-It-All" or "Idiot Who Doesn't Know What The Hell He's Talking About." Give the paintings to your professor as gifts.

17. Wait for your professor to mention a date, and then yell out, "Bingo!" Apologize, and explain that you got confused.

18. Carve a bust of your professor out of cheese. Tie a ribbon around it, and present it to him/her at the beginning of class. Demand extra credit.

19. Write your professor a note that says, "I'm going to be about 15 minutes late. Go ahead and start without me." Wait outside the building until the time when class is supposed to begin. Tie the note to a rock, and throw it through the window.

20. Write down everything that your professor says, word for word. Think up a melody, and turn the words into a song. Bring a guitar to class and perform the song for the class. Explain to your professor that he/she is "very inspiring."

21. Get a monkey, and bring it to class with you. Tell your professor that you've hired the monkey to take notes for you. Sit back and relax during class, letting the monkey scribble on a piece of paper. When it comes time to write a paper or take a test, write down things like, "I wish I had a banana" and "I miss my tire swing." Assuming you get a bad grade, angrily fire the monkey in front of your professor.

22. When you have to write a paper, get it done early and mail it to your professor's house. From then on, don't hand anything in, and blame it on the sluggishness of the U.S. Postal Service.

23. Tell your professor that you'd like to interview him/her for a writing class. Get him/her to tell you his/her life story. Act interested, and write down everything he/she says. Fabricate a few romantic interludes and turn your efforts into a trashy romance novel. Make copies for the entire class, and your professor. Demand extra credit.

24. Draw hearts and flowers on the backs of your papers and tests. Next to them, write things like, "You're the best, even though you suck" and "You're the worst professor in the world, but I still love you."

25. Start asking questions in a fake foreign language. Act like your professor is stupid for not being able to understand you. Get other people in the class to start speaking the fake language too, and have frequent discussions during class. Act like you're really interested in what you're discussing. If your professor tries to interrupt or stop you, act annoyed and motion for him/her to quiet down.

Cookies Deactivated

Posted by Dinky Mind on Tuesday, November 14, 2006 in
When I plan to update my blog from home, Blogger Uncle says "I can't" because I have eaten their cookies! :'(

Then, Genius Me decided to bring the CD here, at the university, and update my blog from here. But this same Stooopid Me forgot to bring the CD here. According to my time table, Tuesdays are busy. In the morning I decided to slide the CD in my bag, but thought I wouldn't get time today so I put it back on the desk. See, Dinky Mind's so rusted!

I need cookies at home, so I could give them to Blogger Uncle, so I would be granted access to Blogland.


Cheerio folks =)

Winter, I miss you!!!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Friday, November 10, 2006 in
It's almost mid november and no sign of winters!!! It's true, people are feeling cold these days, but that's because of fever, not winter. Although I like summers more than winters ( the sun AND the wind), but this time of the year I am waiting for chilly days. I am waiting to curl up in bed and sleep for a day or two! I'm so sleep-deprived these days, and I just can't wait for winter nights to spend in my comfy blanky.




Posted by Dinky Mind on Thursday, November 09, 2006 in
Its 12:09 now. I'm done with my Office Automation's exam (don't ask how it went), and now when I should be studying Statistics for tomorrow, I'm wasting time. I have brought the books and notes to study AT the university, but I am so easily delaying my work. I won't get a minute's time to study at home, but this idiot me is not in a mood of accepting this stark reality. Aaaargggghhhh. What's the problem with me??



Posted by Dinky Mind on Friday, November 03, 2006 in
Please wait...


Bells of hell are chiming!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Tuesday, October 31, 2006 in
Oh well, again!!!! As always, exams are near, and I am not prepared! I'm so darn busy in this series of Office's assignments. I just hate them. And to our displeasure, the same teacher is teaching Office now who taught us Programming in the last semester. She just loves to see us under pressure and all tied up in work! I don't know what's her problem. She fires a torpedo of real lengthy assignments exactly when the exams are near! Now, our mid terms are starting from coming Monday, and we've to submit 2 stooopid, ultra-legthy assignments by coming Friday! Is this sanity? Arrrghhhh!!! And, not to forget, we've to submit this *!#%$^$ project of ours before our final exams. Can't have 2 seconds of relaxation in this semester either!

And now, coming to the nightmare of my life. Finance! The teacher has been changed and this new teacher is trying his best to teach "How To Use A SIMPLE Calculator"!!!! Yes, you read it correct. He says, "In life, we face problems. What if one day you discover you don't have a calculator, a scientific or a financial calculator? What are you going to do?" Now that's a million dollar question!!! In this world of technology he's taking us back to simple calculator. I'm afraid by the end of the semester we would have learned to use an Abacus!


That's all for today. I hope I manage to get good grades, though it seems difficult! Ah, I need your prayers, loads of 'em.



A 20,000 worth eidi

Posted by Dinky Mind on Monday, October 30, 2006 in
Well, yes! I got my eidi a day before chand raat (makes 28th roza). The story goes like this:

My dad asked his friend (who's in Saudia) to get a cell phone (any camera-wala cell phone). This uncle friend was arriving Pakistan on 18th October. I asked Dad to specify the model. I wanted Nokia 3230. Dad didn't agree. After 2 days (October 12th), I again asked him to message his friend and kindly specify the model. He, tired of my whinings, messaged him. After a few minutes the reply came! Dad read the reply quite slowly, and a million questions started running around my head the moment message came. I thought if he'd bought anything less than a 3230 or any other cell phone that I don't want/like.

Dad read: "I have already..."
Me: (all sad) *oh my my, so he has ALREADY bought something?!?!*
Dad: "...bought Nokia..."
Me: *please don't test my patience. Say it once, i'd accept it, even if it's any ajeeb-sa model*
Dad: "N70!"
Me: *electrocuted* " A WHATTTTTT?"
Dad: "N70. That's what he has written"
Me: *jumps around the whole house* Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

I wanted to have 3230, I was about to get it before Ramadan. But then I came to know that software problems are becoming common in this model, and so it had been swapped away from the market. And now, tada, me has got an awesome-ish cell phone.

I just can't recall for how long I just wished to have an awesome-ish cell phone, but now, Alhamdolillah, I've got one. Yay =)

Stay jealous!!! :p

Oh, (belated) Happy Eid to all of my readers :p

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.

Celebrating 2 decades of joy!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Thursday, August 24, 2006 in

Yes folks, today I’ve turned 20! Yay =)

It all started last night when my parents wished me first!!! Then one of my best friends sent me a picture message followed by a really nice SMS. Then Jaj called on the landline. We talked for about 15 minutes. We were talking when I received SMS from [V] and Asma and then Asma called. So I got on the phone with her. Talked to her for again 15 minutes. When I was on the phone with Asma, my brother, bhabhi and Abeer wished me. Then one of my A Levels friend, Ahsen Ehsan messaged and wished me. Then I got on the phone with Biya, Anny bhai and Aashoo! At around 1 am, Gul wished me. And at around 2, Evil Acro wished me (naheen tweat doun gee :P) Then my best friend, who wished me earlier, called and sang to me the Birthday song! Awww, so nice of you, LDD!

And now, you can check my Orkut and find out how many people have wished me!!! The list includes:
Mujahid Bhai,
Raheel Lakhani,
Raheel Anwar,
Asma (with a real cute scrap),
Bilal Bhai,
Rimel Arif,
…and the list goes on!!!

Oh my my, I am so excited naa!!!



Posted by Dinky Mind on Sunday, August 20, 2006 in
According to Macmillan English Dictionary, a Mosquito is “a small flying insect that bites the skin of people and animals in order to feed on their blood.” But according to me, a Mosquito is more than an insect and an infuriating piece of filth! At the moment, you might not completely agree to my definition of a Mosquito, but I am sure when you’d finish reading this post, you would call a Mosquito by even worse names, which I am avoiding to type here!

The torment starts every night, when I lazily throw myself on the bed. It’s the time of the day when I expect and desire a few moments of complete serenity. But you all are quite aware of the teasing nature of the Mosqi family. The moment I sit on the bed, the whole Mosqi community attacks me as if I have stolen their buffalo! They make the weirdest of noise in my ears as if warning me not to harm them. I, being a respectful girl, stay quiet, but even at that they hurt me! Sometimes they even show their reverence and kiss my feet. Within a few seconds, my feet turn red - not because of the red shade of lipstick that Mosqi Ladies wear but - because of the way they sting my poor feet. Yikes! It feels like they have got a real sharp needle by which they prick them. I don’t know how to ask those evil Mosqis to get a piece of mind and just think of the fact that I cannot ever get a spare pair of feet for myself.

Just imagine how helpless I feel when I see those Mosqis sitting on my feet, treating on my blood, and when I furiously attempt to land my hand to crush them, it only hurts me! Yes, those ill-mannered creatures manage to make an easy escape and then they dance in the air to boil my blood up even more! I irritably stare at them and make a vow with the whole mankind to crush this nauseating little force tonight. So, I pick up a thin book or even a magazine and run after them in the whole room – search for them behind the curtains and on the bed, near the shelves and inside my cupboard. And folks, you can’t imagine how victorious I feel when I slam the book and kill a few. It feels like a wave of ecstasy has swept over me and I feel a little relieved.

You might be thinking that a sensible way to kill these Mosqis is to use a mosquito coil, mosquito mat, or a mosqi-killer spray. I do have all of them and I have tried them. But all that results in Mosqis becoming more and more narcissistic and then they attack you with even greater strength. If you have tried all these things, you will agree that these things are just a loss of time, money, effort, and most of all patience!

Dear Mosqis, this is my humble request to all of you. I will respect you only if you don’t hurt me. I promise that. But, there’s one more thing I want to say. I would like to tell you that change is a good thing. Try to understand! Why don’t you guys either just change yourselves or change this place. The whole world will welcome you. You see, we don’t like to give you our few droplets of blood. You have infected us beyond limits. Why don’t you find a new neighborhood, a new house, new people? It’s going to be an awesome experience. Trust me!

Today something real scary happened. Now I dont know how to tell you, and even if I gather all the courage to tell you, I won't. Somethings are better kept secret! ;)

For exactly half an hour, I stayed quiet and bit my already tiny nails. I didn't know what to do. And then finally I got a sign of relief! But I was still tensed! Yeah, Dinky Mind is now becoming

Anyways, now everything is fine. And now when I am reminded of those 30 tension-filled minutes, I just smile, thanking God nothing adverse happened!

Take care folks...



Free and Busy!!!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Tuesday, June 27, 2006 in
'Ello everybuddy,

Me is back. Exams are over. Me is free. But me is not free. Cuz I have to do the packing. Jes jes, me is going for Umra on Thursday (day after tmrw) InshAllah. And hey, SD is getting marrrrrrrrrrriiiiiieeeeeeeeeedddddddddd!!! Yayyyyyyyyyyy....

So, today, I washed like a million clothes. At one moment I became so tired and dirty of washing clothes that I decided to spin myself in the machine.

Cleaned my ever-messy room after washing clothes. Hufff....there were like 5 tons of dirt that I wiped off my tables and shelves today. Heavens, I wore that surgical mask or I would have died of dirt allergy!

Cleaned my cupboard...Now I need a real big reward for that, cuz everbody knows cleaning my cupboard is no easy job! I've got this thin (hardly 2 feet wide) cupboard, but it's really high! And it has got a cabinet on top of it. In this cupboard, i carelessly stuff everything that i see lying uselessly in my room. So, during my exams, I had to search my cubby for books, clothes, stationery, shoes, socks, jewelery, perfumes, CDs, and God knows what else. Today, I organized my things and threw them at their respective place; the store room. Well, that's the pnly way I can clean my cubby na!!! ;)

More than half of the stuff of my room is now comfortable lying in the bin, and my bin is now overflowing and is begging me to take off some load!

This clean-up-your-room campaign has really given me a hard time. This is the last time I have cleaned my room, with the hope of not messing it up again...but let's see what happens, cuz my second name is not Organised!

Cheerio folks!!!

p.s.: send me your wishlists!!! I might become wealthy and excited and get you your most desired gifts!! ;P


Exam Update!!!!

And if my exam goes well, I will send Hershey's to all who prayed. *counts coins* Hehe.

Acha na...I've gotta go study now!

Cheerio folks!



Late post

Posted by Dinky Mind on Tuesday, June 20, 2006 in
[The following post was meant to be published on Friday, June 16th.
Therefore, the 'today' in this post means Friday, June 16].

These past 2-3 days were like hell for me! We had to submit our C's
final project today before 4:30 pm. We first had to get our program
registered with the teacher and then create/modify it. I had an idea, I
got it registered. Later, when I started to translate that idea into C,
I started having problems. It was becoming complex like anything. Went
to the teacher, got it changed with another idea. This one was kind of
kiddish, but I was short of time and low on energy, so I preferred an
easy one.
Started making it. Things were going fine. As I moved further, I
started having a few idiotic errors in it. The program refused to run!
I went numb!!!! Darn! I would want to slam my fist against the screen
and make it run, but I would just end up slapping my forehead and try
searching for those errors. Yesterday was a bad day!
I wasted whole of my Thursday in programming. I thought it would run on
my PC, but it didn't. Turbo C was not running any program on my
machine. That just boiled my blood up. All worst things had to happen
yesterday! Anyways, downloaded TC from web. But after I downloaded, I
realised it's ver 2.01; something I didn't need! Again I wanted to slam
my fist on the desk, but i refrained and cursed myself for wasting time
on downloading an unnecessary thing. Asked a friend to help me out. He
sent me TC via Yahoo! and I downloaded it. But as I told you earlier,
yesterday was a bad day, even that TC did not run programs on my
machine, though it was ver 3, something relevent!
My plan for getting the code printed at the university, on Thursday,
failed! I spent my whole day sitting in the lab and editing the
program. Didn't even get time to eat anything. Just lived on my Nestle
water! Before going home, exhausted, I mailed the code to Acro. Upon
reaching home, I logged on, and found the modified code in the mailbox.
Thanks Acro! But as I said earlier, yesterday was a bad day, my
internet account expired! And there I sat staring at the inactive
screen. Got myself a new balance and started doing my work. Started
downloading SmartDraw. Downloaded it. Started installing it. But darn,
it was taking so much time na. Dunno why!!!! Imagine it was taking 2
minutes to install 1%. And since yesterday was a bad day, the
installation prompted an error at 78% and the installation
I felt like crying at my helplessness. But hey, i'm not a pessimist.
Started installing again. This time, it took less time. The program
finally installed. But, as again, yesterday was a bad day, I didn't
know how to use it!!! Anyways, with my caffeine-drugged body, I lazily
went to bed. Got up in the morning, went to uni. And from 8:30 am to
1:15 pm, I sat there making the program, and writing the summary, and
mailing the code to my teacher. One important thing was left:
Flowcharts!!!! I made a rough flowchart on paper, got it checked by a
friend, and he, dubious of my mental sanity, straight away cancelled
it. Wow! That was a treat for today! Anyways, made another flowchart.
This time I imported the idea from a friend, who herself got it made by
one of her contacts. Again got it checked it by my friend. He
identified a few mistakes and modified it. Atlast, he finally asked,
"Do you really not know how to make flowcharts?". And I kept silent.
Then he made my 7-paged flowchart. Thanks a tragazillion!!!! Had he not
been there, I would have made a wrong flowchart and gotten a zero in
it! Well, I don't know what I'm going to get in this project, but
atleast I'm sure I'd get something better than others (wishful
thinking...hehehe). Submitted the assignment at round 3 pm (remember
deadline was 4:30 pm the same evening?). Yeah, yeah, I know I'm
Awight people, me relieved today, and me happy today. Will see ya later. Do pray.


Had my MacroEconomics' paper today. Bad news: Im not getting an A in it.

"Are you sane? I mean, why don't you take food?"
"Why are you after your life? Go, and eat something."
"Don't show me your face until you think you've had your food-o-meter full."
"Tell me the name of that genius who insisted you on coming to the uni."
[Me: "Remember we've got 2 quizzes today?]
"And you came here for quizzes???"

Yes readers, these are what people around me saying about me!

Let me clarify you all one thing. I "do" take food and I do take rest. What is my fault if headache and fever want to become my friends? Do you think I like having fever and cough? Who does? I do take medicines and I do take care of myself. The world hasn't stopped producing Disprins!

I've got Eco and Statistics' quiz today. And I plan to go home at 12:30 pm, if someone picks me from here. And yeah, I'm feeling better now!!! So, my dear friends, stop worrying! I heard someone say, "Fever and aches are good for a person". [Now don't start arguing cuz I myself don't know 'how' it's good! ]

Awight folks, pray for my quizzes.

Cheerio =)

A man comes running to the doctor shouting and screaming in pain " Please doctor, you've got to help me. I've been stung by a bee."

DOCTOR: " Don't worry; I'll put some cream on it."

MAN: " You will never find that bee. It must be miles away by now."

DOCTOR: " No, you don't understand! I'll put some cream on the place you were stung."

MAN: " Oh! It happened in the garden where I was sitting under a tree."

DOCTOR (in anger): " No, no, you IDIOT! I mean on which part of your body did that bee sting?"

MAN (still screaming in pain): " On my finger! The bee stung me on my finger and it really hurts."

DOCTOR (banging his fist, abusing and shouting):" Which one?"

MAN (innocently): " How am I to know? All bees look the same to me."

The joy of winning!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Friday, May 19, 2006 in
Recently, I read on Acro's blog how he lost all 5 matches of Table Tennis. So, I decided to resume my game. Moreover, Rabia is constantly buggin me to have our tournament matches, but I keep on making excuses that I am not well, and I've got classes and quizzes etc., when actually I am not prepared for the match!

The scenario is: Rabia Khan and I are the two girls in the whole univeristy who play a lot better than other girls. And so, we know, we're going to be playing against each other in the final! And I have to play a match (that's gonna be the semi-final; directly) with Sara Abdula. She beat Khushi in the first round(?). Rabia Khan beat Naureen Sajid. Now, I'll beat Sara Abdula (InshAllah). And Rabia Khan will beat Shamayl Ather Usmani (well, Rabia is a pretty good player).

Boys always beat us in the game. But, today was an awesome-ish day! I was practising with Umair, when Jehangir and Usman came upstairs to play. Since there were only 3 bats, we could play singles only. Although I am worst at playing singles, but thanks to Nav., who would always encourage me to atleast try and play. Well, well, well. I started having a match with Umair. It was going all smooth, when a time came when I took the lead and the score jumped to 18-12. And then I beat him at ...uh, well, I don't remember! Probably 15 or 16. And hey, I was so glad that I beat someone better than me! [I have beaten two other guys - Hasan Ashraf and Majid. They play well too].

Since there's this rule of "Winner to stay", I had to stay on the table and play my next match, though I wanted to go out and have some fresh air. Anyways, Jehangir came to play. When the game began I was ahead of him by a couple of points, but somehow, he would drag his score and make it somewhat sound like 8 all, etc. Just because he's a left-handed player, I was facing quite a lot of difficulties. Anyways, I tried and then a point came when I was almost winning the game by 19-17. Then he took one point and I took one too. The score climed to Game-18. I was damn sure, he'd tie it up, cuz I have a habit of losing points easily when I am winning an easy game. Today's game wasn't easy though. I ended the match with a beautiful smash and then I went into the state of utter hapiness and incredulity! I pronounced my happiness to Jaj (shamayl) who became quite impressed by my game! Hehehe....

Then came Usman...oops, I knew I couldn't beat him, cuz he has improved his game a lot, and I was feeling tired and was all drenched in sweat. Well, I tried. But heck, I lost the game at 16. It was all because he's got quite a strong back-hand game. And when he hits a back-hand smash, I just stand aside and watch. Lolz. But I shouldn't forget one thing. There was a day when I almost beat this guy. I mean, he cheated so he won. I lost that game at 19.

So, this was my success story. Pray I win the semi-final and final match too.. Beating Rabia Khan would be a difficult job, but surely not impossible. Your paryers and my preparation might result in my victory. So, pweaseeeee pray for meeee!!!!

Cheerio folks!



The day begins!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Tuesday, May 16, 2006 in
Today, I woke up at 5:15 am (without any alarm...wohoo). Prayed Fajr! And made loadsaaa loadsaaa prayers for my upcoming quiz and for my french exam results! Refreshed myself and watched CNN at 6 am with a piece of yummy cake Biya brought on Mother's Day. Came downstairs and from that time till now (7:02 am), I've been searching for my lost sock!!!!! I've just got one sock and the other one is missing. I could have worn it, but the thing is I have two feet, not one! Two other pairs are dirty. And now I don't know what to do. My brothers are not going school today. I'm also planning on skipping my university today (just because of my sock?) Hehehe.

Anyways, Im going total crazy right now, cuz I'm worried about my sock and I am happy that I don't have to attend any french classes now (I hated Tuesdays). I am worried cuz my bus will be here in 15 minutes and I am not at all prepared but I am happy cuz I am well prepared for my quiz!

Arrrright people, you gotta pray for me.

Will meet ya after the uni.

10 Things To Do At School When Bored!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Sunday, May 07, 2006 in
1. Take off your socks, and make hand puppets. When asked a question throw
your hand up and answer through your socks. Have one puppet accuse the other of
having the wrong answer, and let them argue.

2. Take spare gum out from under your desk and mold a statue of one of your
classmates. Try to sell it to them.

3. Mimic your classmate's facial expressions. If they notice, keep doing it
until they get mad. If they get mad, keep doing it until they make a scene. If
they make a scene, raise your hand and complain that he/she is distracting you.

4. March into the classroom yelling, "Hut, two three, four." Take role call in
your best General voice. If they don't answer say, "I saaaid, (Name of
classmate)" Keep doing so until answered.

5. Bring in a fishing pole and try to "catch" your teacher. Keep saying things
like, "The last one got away," or, "Get the net, It's a big one!"

6. Make up the corniest joke you can and announce it to the teacher. Example:
Do you think that if Mexico and Texas ever got together, they would call it

7. Get out a comb and part your hair down the middle, going all the way down
the back. Borrow a pair of glasses and put them on backwards. Sit in the chair
backwards with your arms behind you, on the desk. If no one notices wait about 5
minutes then scream, "That Stupid Chiropractor!"

8. Get a pair of 3-d glasses. Wobble around while walking and keep yelling,
"Whoah, that looked so real!"

9. Start a debate on (pick a subject such as whose cooler, best color of
shoes, smart or dumb, etc.) Get a representative from each side. Have those two
debate, explaining pros and cons, get the teacher, and say, "All I said was
'those are neat shoes' and then this happened!"

10. Bring in a dog and dress it in your clothes, sit it in your seat, and talk
for it. Hide somewhere in the classroom before your teacher comes in. Try to
pass him off as you, while occasionaly mumbling, "I should have never mixed in
that citric acid."

Cheerio! =)


French exam!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Saturday, May 06, 2006 in
Today, I had 2 hours of french. Pretty annoying!! And today I got to know that I've got my final paper right after a week!!! And man, I'm not prepared for even a single word!!! Arghhh!!! In this Level, I missed a lot of classes. I mean just a lotttttttttt of classes. I remember, way back in Level 1, I would consider missing a class a sin! And, not to forgot, I had the best teacher in that Level. Even in this Level, I've got a nice teacher. I won't blame her. The thing is, I am not studying these days. I mean, I really can't do my university and french assignments simultaneously. And then leaving home at 7 am and getting in at 7 pm really annoys me the most. Mommyyyy....I hate that!

So, well, I was talking about my French exam! I am hoping it to be a hell sort of a paper! Why? Because in this Level, we have studied almost all the tenses. Not almost, but really ALL the tenses. Starting from Present, then Past, Future, Conditional, Imperfect...blah blah blah... So, you guys can easily imagine that this Dinky Mind is trying its level best not to explode.

Ok, enough french blahs for today.

But hey, yesterday I noticed something. I typed http://umem.blogspot.com and it worked! So, is blogspot working now??? [Today, it's not] :(

Awight, awight, awight...

Me needa go now...

Cheerio folks!!!

No shelter from the kniving wind,
No solace from the driving snow.
No warmth, no comfort or bright cheer
In heav'n above or earth below.

My soul longs to be far from here,
To be with those who care for me.
Far from the noise of clonflict grim
Where lives are toss'd on Death's dark sea.

An Anagram, as you all know, is a word or phrase made by transposing or rearranging the letters of another word or phrase. The following are exceptionally clever. Someone out there either has way too much time to waste or is deadly at Scrabble.
When you rearrange the letters:

Dormitory .................................. Dirty Room
Evangelist................................. Evil's Agent
Desperation.............................. A Rope Ends It
The Morse Code..................... Here Come Dots
Slot Machines......................... Cash Lost in 'em
Animosity................................ Is No Amity
Mother-in-law..........................Woman Hitler
Snooze Alarms........................ Alas! No More Z's
Alec Guinness......................... Genuine Class
Semolina................................... Is No Meal
The Public Art Galleries......... Large Picture Halls, I Bet
A Decimal Point...................... I'm a Dot in Place
The Earthquakes.................... That Queer Shake
Eleven plus two..................... Twelve plus one
Contradiction......................... Accord not in it

A Snail can sleep for 3 years.

*wishes to become a snail*

I seriously wait for weekends to sleep for a few hours. I hate university life. Leaving home at 7:15 am and returning at 7:15 pm is no justice with me!!! Hate French classes too! And now these evil mid-term exams are near. So I'd be sleep-deprived for another 2 good weeks (or even more).

But after that, I promise, I will become a snail!


TOLET ....021-123-4567

Posted by Dinky Mind on Thursday, March 30, 2006 in
Almost daily you see billboards bearing the word TOLET and a phone number.

(Not long ago) When I was a kid, I would mispronounce this word as TOILET and would often wonder why is there a phone number there. I would think, probably they wrote it so people could dial this number and ask the person where the nearest restroom is! But then, one day, 3 billboards in a row saying TOLET caught my attention and made me think, "Why can't people use their "own" restrooms rather than calling others and using theirs. What is the emergency?"

Now, I have figured out what ToLet is, and why do they write a phone number there. But this thing still amuses me. Tell me honestly how many of you knew that the word on the billboards is TOLET and not TOILET.

Cheerio =)

Chronological Disorder!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Wednesday, February 22, 2006 in
Inconsistency is the most consistent thing I am facing these days!


The truth about lying

Posted by Dinky Mind on Sunday, February 12, 2006 in
There was once a time when, like other kids, I would lie too much. Every minute would consist of a brand new lie.

"You did your homework?"
"Yes, I did."

are one of the ordinary, day-to-day lies. When I joined my O-Levels, I didn't get the right type of company (hehe). So I cultivated the habit of lying too much. Too too much. When other kids would have those Mercedes, I would also keep the latest model of Lexus. Even now if people say, I drive Ferrari, I also go like saying, "So what, I drive an Aston Martin too." But hey, this is not a lie. I really drive Aston Martin [in NFS] :P. People would even visit their cousins in London on a mere weekend. So, I would also go and enjoy my summer vacations in the Cayman Island. =)

But after my O-Levels, when all of us ran to different schools for A-Levels, I became a better kid again. Hehe. But again, as I am not that lucky, I got a few classmates who'd lie. Well, there was just one. He would have his business in almost every continent. Mine was not. He would earn a monthly income in 6-7 figures, that too in Dollars! I was happy on my Rs. 200. He would blah a lot and I, like other people, would stay quiet and make fun after he's gone.

Probably I got a piece of mind from somewhere or what, but I really tried, and even succeeded, in talking truth! For instance, now when I don't do lunch and mom asks me, "Have you had your lunch?", I can't say Yes. She glares and scolds me when I say a NO, but seriously YES doesn't pop out of my mouth. If she asks, "How much did you spend?", I answer honestly and tell exactly how much money I wasted and in what. But now, she doesn't ask me =)

Sometimes I think why people lie. To save themselves or to save others? Whatever the reason is it's not good. And I am trying not to lie as frequenly as I used to. Hehehe....

Cheerio folks =)


The perfect husband

Posted by Dinky Mind on Friday, February 10, 2006 in
There are several men sitting around in the locker room of a golf club. After a round, showering and getting changed for the 19th hole. Suddenly a mobile phone on one of the benches rings. One of the men picks it up, and the following conversation ensues:
(H - Husband, W - Wife)
H - "Hello?"
W - "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"
H - "Yes."
W -"Great! I am at the mall two blocks from where you are. I just saw a beautiful leather coat. It's absolutely gorgeous!! Can I buy it?"
H -"What's the price?"
W - "Only 1,000."
H - "Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much..."
W - "Ahhh, and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2003 models. I saw one I really liked. Its a SLK model. I spoke with the salesman, and he gave me a really good price . and since we need to exchange the BMW that we bought last year..
H - "What price did he quote you?"
W - "Only $65,000..."
H - "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
W - "Great! But before we hang up, something else...
H -"What?"
W - "It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and I stopped by the real estate agent this morning and saw the house we had looked at last year. It's for sale!! Remember? The one with a pool English garden, acre of park area, beach front property."
H - "How much are they asking?"
W - "Only $450,000 -- a magnificent price...and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover..."
H - "Well, then go ahead and buy it, but just bid up to $420,000. OK?"
W - "OK,sweetie...Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!"
H - "Bye...I love you too..."

The man hangs up & closes the phone's flap. The other men are looking at him in astonishment and derision. The husband raises his hand while holding the phone and asks "Does anyone know who this Cellphone belongs to???"

So people! keep ur mobile phones safe :)

[As always, I forgot where I read it]

Life Stinks

Posted by Dinky Mind on Wednesday, February 08, 2006 in
Ah well, no doubt about it...It stinks!


1: When you're feeling happy about something, and your maids run away, and being the only 'girl' available in the house, you have to take the responsibilies. [Girls, don't you just hate that?] Your happiness goes straight down the drain. :-/

2: Now, the shocking news....I can't keep you guys waiting for the not-so-good thing....so here it goes. Got 3.25 GPA. Yeah, yeah. All those who think this is good are just....well, leave it... And those who think I could have done better are very right! Cuz, I DID do better and really I deserved a better grade... in Accounting especially. *gets out of control* You really don't know how much I studied for it. I would spend days and nights just in balancing those ultra idiotic Bank Statements and Balance Sheets. You don't know how much ink I have wasted in those days. I've not had two hours undisturbed sleep since my exams. My horrifying teacher and those horrific grades would haunt me all the night and I would search for a place to hide. I started having eternal headache. Argh!!! Now, as it is all over, the result's here, still my headache is not leaving me easily. Probably because this wave of anger is not receding. And to top it off, I'll have to study Accounting for almost 4 years! Cuz it's all about 2+2= *calculates* oh yeah... = 4! Heck!

And today was the awefulliest moment when I figured out that I got a B in Accounting. Had it been a B of O/A Levels, it would have been okay, cuz B means 80% - 89%. But, as I don't remember, and don't even want to recall the percentage limit of B here in the university, I can't tell you. Heaven's goodness, today I didn't find my teacher's car in the parking, or I would have seriously stoned it! Our teacher would not allow us to use the terms Debtor/Creditor but would insist on using Accounts Recievable/Accounts Payable. I mean, who has got TIME to write such long, almost half-paged words????

But well, the thing that made me (err...not so) glad was that I got an A in Economics. That was confirmed though. And most importantly who can't get an A in an easy course as this. Got a B+ in Applied Math. I'm glad about it. *pronounces with disgust*Got B in all other courses!

3: I want John Grisham's 'Broker'!!!! Do you hear it??? I really really really want to read a goooooood book. Suggest me more pwease. [Reading Arms and the Man by G.B.Shaw. It's about to end, so I need a new book before it ends].

4: Life stinks because I'm having a headache AGAIN...Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Someday, the world will face a shortage of Disprins!

5: And this idiotic mosquito is not leaving me..Heck...It's just one but seriously a pain in the neck! I've made several hopeless attempts in killing it, but that lucky creature always finds a way out of my palms. Errrr. I think I am not trying to kill it. I really can't kill roaches, their kiddy roaches, lizards, their baby lizards and idiotic mosquitoes. Once, I accidently killed a mosquito. I really had no intention of touching it, but the annoyance it was creating for me urged me to try once and kill it. I made a weak attempt and that thing landed lazily on my foot. My hands and foot got drenched in crimson blood. Yuck!!! I know how I washed that filth! *slaps the air to shoo the ill creature away and searches for Mortein*

6: Yikes! It's quarter past 2. But I am not sleepy!!! Does anybody know a good lullaby by a famous singer??

Cheerio folks!!!
