Things I keep learning about myself

See every single day is a new experience for me…. You see I am wonderful joy ride, and since I am so interesting there is always something new about me that I keep discovering …..Note to the world: I am not a self absorbed narcissist!

So here is a list of things that I can actually recall about myself at the moment and is now on display:

  1. I hate to wait: I have always hated this.. since as long as I can remember! I hate waiting for a car to come if I am free early, I hate waiting for the bus to come, for the person who is suppose to pick me to finally show up, for something exciting to happen, for a plan to finalize for a get together, or a secret finally to be revealed, for things to take their due course….. Anything and everything that could possibly come in this category!  I simply hate waiting!
  2. I hate ice-creams: This has been a pretty recent change in me. I have just stopped liking ice-creams! I hate them now! And I even hate it further when people push you to have it or give you that “How – in-the-world-is-something-like-this-possible! ”
  3. I love animals, as long as they don’t come close/try to jump/rub themselves around my legs:This is a phenomenon restricted to animals that I have not become comfortable with, which

    Well, I couldn't find a better image to suit this post!

    basically means that I can touch their fur and all, but they are not allowed to come, which basically means that it includes all animals excluding my turtle.

  4. I get scared of a particular task that I do after a long time:Take an example of this! I sat on a plane after a long time, and I was scared shit. Every jerk of the plane was taken as a way to validate my thought that this plane will crash, even after we hit the runway, I was sure that at least the tyre would burst! But on the return flight, I was so so chilled! No tensions nothing! And the other day when I took the pedestrian bridge, I was sure one of the steel plates would fall off, although I have taken a pedestrian bridge a gazillion times! But on the way back I wasn’t!
  5. I really don’t care much for taking a shower:Ya, I am lazy! So I might just skip it for a day or two!  Continue reading

I confess it.. I am a party throwing-holic

This fact was brought to my attention by a friend, who knew me  when I was a kid, and with whom I again became acquainted a year ago… Hey Noman …that I have always been obsessed with throwing parties. Now, I don’t know if the word obsessed is particularly flattering for my condition or not, but I do know, that yes I like (meant in the most mildest sense ever) to throw parties. I just love the idea of having friends over and sitting and talking to them. And since I am the only one who likes to cook and try new recipes, I have never in my life have had any issue with being the host.

So last night while working I decided, that I need a final party and blow my steam night before I plunge myself into my thesis year, and since I wont be allowed to go out for a party, I might as well bring the party over to my place.

There is also one more reason for doing this! See my tradition of having lunch

at my place every Eid has been shattered due to a friend getting married …Hello Sara! Obviously she can’t make it on that day since now she has other priorities.. so time to shift the tradition a bit! But well I came  up with that reason later on! Still, it’s a good one! So new tradition.. dinner/ lunch/whatever at my place every first Saturday of the new year! So this year it come down to the 1st of January 2011, which is a Saturday..Isn’t that great!
