The Nobel Sneeze Prize

Posted by Dinky Mind on Thursday, October 29, 2009 in , , ,
The weather these days is changing dramatically - at one time you enjoy the soft cool breeze in the morning, and after a few hours, you wish for a chilled room where you could nestle yourself against the frosty wall! After having a quick face-wash in this dry weather, you start feeling cold again. And then suddenly you feel a sultry wave of debilitating heat passing through you and you again run to some AC-ed room! Grrrr... Octobers are meant to be like that!

Now coming to the real story. Silly me actually loves to wash face, hands and feet with cold water! So I usually do ablution with cold water. And it's fun! So, after Fajr prayers, I went to have a quick shower. That quick shower wasn't that warm. And that actually resulted in me sneezing the whole morning. =(

I actually sneeze a lot - as in, I always sneeze in a series of minimum 3 sneezes. Hehe. People think I'm nuts, and my silly sneezes actually prove my nutty-ness to them =( The whole way to the university I sneezed a lot. Had a half pack of tissue papers crumbled up in my lap as I completed my 15-minute drive from home to university! In class I tried to control my short, killing, serial sneezes! I did succeed a few times but aathishoo-ed the remaining time =( Thankfully I don't sneeze that loudly so the pin-drop-silenced class didn't get that much disturbed! =D

Did I ever tell you I'm allergic to dust too? Well then, you now know about it too! If I roll down my car's windows, I start sneezing. And when I turn on the AC in the car, I start sneezing again! Nazuk me, I know! =/ So when I got back home, I was sneezing again, but with a lesser frequency.

Me: Know what, I sneezed like a mad person today! They were just unstoppable!
Momma: And how do mad people sneeze?
Me: *performs the first series of three sneezes in a row*
Momma: But isn't that normal of you?
Me: Bahhh!!! You don't want me to repeat the whole morning madness now =(

And when Bushi returned from school...

Me: *aatishoo*
Bushi: Bless you!
Me: *aaaaatishooooo*
Bushi: Buhless youh!
Me: (with the thrid sneeze welling up) *aaaaaTHISHoooo*
Bushi: *grits teeth* BLESS YOU multiplied by infinity! *runs away*


Momma honored me with the Nobel Sneeze Prize - a hot mug of Ovaltine! =D And I became a happy yappy kid again! =D

Cheerio folks =D

PS: One of my friends always argues that somebody misses you when you're sneezing, and not when you're getting hiccups! Though I don't believe it, but still whoever you are please don't miss me that badly! Sadly, it's equally painful for me =$


A Scary Fact!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Monday, October 26, 2009 in , ,
I must tell you this thing. Whenever I brush my teeth before going to bed, the next day I always wake up late! I mean it ALWAYS happens!!! I just don't get it why!

In the morning today, I did wake up when Momma's alarm rang around 5:30 or 6 am. But I didn't hear my alarm ring at 7 am? Why so? =( Although I irrefutably remember about setting the alarm last night. It must have rung for sure! I wonder why did I not notice =( Finally Momma had to come and wake me up at 7:45 am =( I had to skip brushing teeth =( Just had to gargle hard with the mouthwash! :/ I remember my dentist Uncle once said that it's not necessary to brush teeth in the morning, but it's essential to brush them at night, before going to bed! Don't think of me as a dirty person. I really love brushing teeth and here's the proof too!

I love brushing my teeth at night. Get a shower and brush your hair with it and it really gives you a cool, soothing feeling when you're going to bed for a peaceful slumber. But if this keeps on happening like that, I think I'd be needing to give up my habit of brushing teeth at night then =(

Cheerio folks =(


Mere Hair

Posted by Dinky Mind on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 in , ,
I am... well, not sick, but tired of my waist-long hair now. It's hard to handle them in this heat. Its been 2-3 months now that I'm after my Momma to get me a haircut, or at least hair trimming. And all my requests go futile as soon as some event pops up and my Momma goes like, "You should be thankful about your long hair. Many girls don't have them. Look at your cousin, Miss TBD and Miss DFQ and your friend Miss HPD. Now don't argue with me and get ready for the dinner party!"

I once fought with her. "You either get me a haircut or a hair straightener!" And she chose the latter! =( A few days back, I started whining again about my hair loss and ganday baal. "All the energy I get from my tiny intake of food goes straight to my hair. I certainly don't like it when people look at me and say: *mimics* 'Kitni kamzor ho gai ho'. And then nobody pays attention to my so-called long, cool hair!" Guess what, the next day Momma bought for me a hair cream, a dozen pomogranates and a carton of Nesvita! Darrrnnnn! She can spend thousands on other things that I don't want and can't spend a few hundreds on a haircut. =(

I tie my hair in a pony tail (folded, so that my hair don't sneak out of the scarf). 2 days back, during the class, I felt my pony tail getting loose. I left the class and went to tie it up again. While I was about to tie the last knot, the band broke, and all my hair fell on my face. Grrrrr! I tried to tie my hair in a bun, but failed. I recalled how Momma does it so perfectly and tried again. Succeeded enough to walk back to the class and ask my fellow friends for an extra hair band so I could tie my hair properly and tightly!!!! Nobody had it, but thanks to Rabia, she fixed my broken band and finally I went to tie my annoying hair again! Bahhhh!!!!

When I got home, I, very sadly, told the whole story to my Momma. Instead of saying, "Aww, may be if you had shorter hair you could have left them open" and agreeing to get me a haircut, she taught me how to make a perfect bun! ='(

I have now learnt to style my hair in different ways and how to dry and straighten them in no time. =( I have even learnt to tie my hair in buns, and how to put rollers on. =(

Cheerio folks =(

PS: There's one thing I can't argue my Momma on. "After getting a haircut you'd wish for long hair again". That's so true! Mommies always know thier kids better =(

Nice Way To Keep Students Awake.

Posted by Dinky Mind on Thursday, October 15, 2009 in , , , ,
We had our Operations Management class from 12:00 to 1:30 pm. That's peak time when all of us (the students), frustrated by the debilitating heat, feel very low and highly demotivated to study. Our teacher, who's an ex CEO of Philips, teaches us in (kind of) a monotonous tone, or else it seems to us. And to avoid his boring lectures, our shararti classmates often move the class clock's needles forward! =D Once they moved the time around 25 minutes ahead. And we did manage to get an early off that day =D We all happily hopped out of the class, leaving the poor proffy to match his own watch with the class's clock time =D

Today, we didn't even touch the clock. You know it seemed to us a stale idea. And honestly speaking, none of us had the energy to think of a new and improved one. Plus, we had to submit an ass-ignment today and nobody had done it, so the fear of hearing an acerbic lecture and the threat of solving an unwanted quiz discouraged us to even go near the darn clock. We were hoping to get our exam papers back. But we weren't lucky enough and we had to study and complete the darn-ish chapter :/

When around 1 pm, 90% of the class dozed off and 10% had actually started snoring, our CEO proffy asked us to take out a piece of paper. "QUIZZZZZZ????" was the first thought that striked our sleepy minds and made us more indisposed and lugubrious. Nobody was in the "mood" of a quiz. After looking at our distorted faces, he said, "It's kind of a game". He then asked us to open our books, jump to the blukh-blah case study, form groups of 2, nominate ourselves as Manager and make our other friend as our Assistant and....

Yeah, can you guess what he asked us to do? He said, "I want you all to write your names on the paper and count all the E's in the case study and write that number on the sheet, and submit it to me!!!!!" With the speed of light, every team joined their heads in finding out the E's in the case, beacuse he tricked us by saying, "Whoever is going to submit me their answer first will get 2 marks". The kind of 'duffer' class we have, everybody wanted to grab those 2 numbers. It was fun - people started counting loudly, some were striking out E's so their count was the perfect, and the others were admonishing those few who were counting loudly. =D It was a mess and a whole lot of fun too =D

After the proffy made sure all of us were completely awake and all charged up, he then calmly burdened us with another very berry long ass-ignment =(

Cheerio folks =(

PS: I scored 20/20 in QMDM, Alhamdolillah =D Yayyy =D


If You're Not The One.

Posted by Dinky Mind on Tuesday, October 13, 2009 in , , , ,
OMG. I just heard this song and I instantly fell in love with it!!! Awww, it's such a sweet sweet song. Reminds me of This I Swear. It's an equally sweet song.

And here you go with the lyrics:

If You're Not The One by Daniel Bedingfield.

If you’re not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you’re not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all

I'll never know whatthe future brings
But I know you're here with me now
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

If I don’t need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don’t need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you’re not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
If you’re not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

I don’t know why you’re so far away
But I know that this much is true
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with
And I wish that you could be the one I die with
And I pray in you’re the one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

‘Cause I miss you, body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today
‘Cause I love you, whether it’s wrong or right
And though I can’t be with you tonight
You know my heart is by your side

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I could stay in your arms


I feel so refreshed after hearing such songs. Guess what, I don't feel like studying for tmrw's exam! =D So you may expect a cry-baby post tomorrow =P As for now, I'm all la-la-ing =P

Cheerio folks =D

PS: I know it's a berry old song, but I love such melodious songs!

PPS: I was just searching for some lala-word and found a new word, "Lollapalooza", which means "A person or thing that is particularly impressive or attractive". Viola! Polish up your vocab =) Oh, and thank you =P


Food For Thought

Posted by Dinky Mind on Thursday, October 01, 2009 in , , ,

Momma: Dump your books in your own room and get ready for lunch.
Me: What is there in lunch?
Momma: Bottle gourd! (aka Ghiya, louki, kaddoo, sorekai and God knows what else).
Me: *starts making faces* Nahi khaana!
Momma: Hawww. You shouldn't be saying like that. It's a Sunnah to eat louki!
Me: I'm sure there were other better vegetables in the Prophet's era. Isn't eating potatoes a Sunnah????

I don't want to skip lunch. I don't do breakfast or dinner. I'm not a fan of green veggies. I don't want to eat Miss Louki!!! :/ Bahhhh!!! ='( I think I should go fry a few spring rolls!

Cheerio folks =(
