Things I'd rather be doing

1. learn to juggle tomatoes
2. stand in the rain while waiting for my turn to try out for American Idol.
3. run the UN
4. count the popcorns on the ceiling
5. sleep
6. research the sleeping habits of penguins
7. drive a bus
8. win a staring contest with a rock
9. watch my favorite lifetime movie. (You know, the one where the girl falls in love with a great guy only to find out he's abusive and then has to change her identity and flee? you know, that one!)
10. anything but study. almost.
-----------
Two random "newsworthy" events, one brilliant, one... ugh.

Ugh: Now the world eagerly awaits Baby Brangelina. Eagerly? 6 billion people have nothing better to eagerly await? At least ten newspapers with this headline. Ugh.

Brilliant: Stephen Colbert tells it like it is at the DC Press Conference. Mia has a link here. Best part: "Let's review the rules... the president makes decisions... The press secretary announces those decisions, and you people of the press type those decisions down... Put them through spell check and go home. Get to know your family again....Write that novel you got kicking around in your head. You know, the one about the intrepid Washington reporter with the courage to stand up to the administration. You know- fiction!" Moments like those give me inexplicable pride to be an American. Seeing an ordinary man stand up there and say what he did before the most powerful man on earth.. wow. Makes you value freedom of speech. Speaking of which, off to study for First Amendment! Until Tuesday... Adeiu. Sniff :(

Harsh times, huh?

I feel you on that whole juggling tomatoes...come to think of it i'd rather be doing anything other than hitting these books. Happy studying!

Chic Mommy said...

wow, I'm so glad I'm done with my studies. I actually have occasional nightmares that I'm back in class and I haven't read anything and there is a test, and then I wake up and thank God that it wasn't real.

I have to admit, I'm waiting for Brangelina baby too. I have no life.

stabani said...

i rather run the un too :-)

9. watch my favorite lifetime movie. (You know, the one where the girl falls in love with a great guy only to find out he's abusive and then has to change her identity and flee? you know, that one!)

which movie is that again :D

I think I too would rather be doing anyone of those before studying. Maybe even have a number 11. swallowing firey swords, lol!

The baby thing with those two weirdo's.....is TOO MUCH! They're expecting, it a wonderful thing but to have all of these "nuts" waiting with bated breath is insane.

I must of missed my picture on all the front pages when I was pregnant. Where ever could I have been, lol!

Continued luck in your studies!!

I would like to see how Brangelina baby turns out - just out of scientific curiousity though. Genetically it probably got the best of both good look genes (male and female).

Hooray on Colbert. The audition tape for press sec was boring but the rest - especially the glass half full and 32% - was priceless.

Minka said...

Oh, i did not know I was eagerly awaiting...
but it is always good to know;)
I tried a starring contest with a stone...that can be a very long game, I haven´t blinked for 20 years now :)

Aisha said...

Baji, what do you mean?

Mia, yeah :) I get a little odd in my thoughts as exams approach

Chic, ok but you're not EAGERLY awaiting with the channel on E! 24/7 in the sole hope to catch word. I mean we're all a little curious :) But the WORLD! the exxageration made me wince! :)

Stabani, it can be a team effort! ;-)

SayWhat: Where have you been??

Mommyblogr, yeah that's what annoyed me I guess. I mean I'm sure of those 6 billion people in the wrld, some are eagerly awaiting THEIR OWN birth, or of a sister, friend, etc. lol. I mean its great they're having a kid but seriously. The titles are a bit dramatic! lol

Mezba, the video got wayy to long at the end it had potential. yeah the hit on the ratings was very bold of him!

Minka, yes you are now on alert, eagerly await Minka! ;0)

wayfarer said...

when are you done?

mayya said...

oh I could even watch PTV ka khabarnama to evade studying :D
and I've researched on the sleeping habits of penguins, apparently in winters they stand on one leg and sleep so a zoo in japan had instituted mandatory rules for exercise for their penguins :D

mystic-soul said...

agar tum fail hui na aisha..to itni zor ki dant pare gi tum ko....lol

Enyur said...

#9 was that Double Jeopardy with Ashley Judd??? I love that movie!

Wow! 6 billion is a huge number! What are these people doing...makhiyaan maar ray nay until Baby Brangelina arrives? lol!

Anyway...study hard and good luck!

Amani said...

LOL...that'smy fav Lifetime movie, too. Second only to the one where the woman's baby gets stolen and no one will believe her...

Chai Anyone? said...

*LOL* - research the sleeping habits of penguins - *LOL* I have so been there.

BBCD said...

how did the popcorn get there?

*confused as always*

Aisha said...

Wayfarer- monday inshallah:)

Mayya, ah thanks for the insight on the penguins :) I shall cross that off the list, one less than to do! :)

Mystic *gulp* :(

Enyur i dont know if you get lifeitme channel where you are but its a channel which only plays movies about how a woman is either left, gets abused, raped, or loses a baby. its the same three themes in different places and styles, but double jeapordy sounds good, i'll check it out!

Amani- eggxactly! :)

Chai :(

BBCD, um well Kashif and I love making popcorn and sometimes in our joy of throwing them up in the air and catching them in our mouth they get stuck. on the celing. LOL. Um no. Actually "popcorn ceiling" is a texture of ceiling here in the states at least. It looks like popcorn but its not really popcorn. Not sure what it is :)

Champ - Love Hound said...

Aisha Dear! I wonder, is there anything you can'T do. LOL!

God bless you......

Enyur said...

lol, yeah I kind of figured you weren't talking about Double Jeopardy after I read Amani's comment.

And yes, do watch Double Jeopardy it's an awesome movie!! I still love watching it!!

say what? said...

They opened up blogspot again :) So I am here :D

BBCD said...

ahhhh *feels educated*

althought i liked explination version one more.

Tee said...

Oh my GOSH! I have popcorn ceilings, TOO! ... LOL. I don't like them at all but there's no way I'm going to attempt getting rid of it!

As for the Brangelina baby - I hate that whole situation. I'd say I hope they divorce if it weren't for the children... I guess I'd be happy if Jennifer Aniston just had a fantastic, happy, and MORE successful life than stupid Brad. LOL.... Man, the things we get pulled into caring about when people are dying in this world :p

Oh - and I disagree about Stephen Colbert. The VERY BEST part was the part about "checking things in your gut" ... ROFL. That was the best...

"Do you know you have more nerve endings in your gut than you have in your head? You can look it up. I know some of you are going to say "I did look it up, and that's not true." That's 'cause you looked it up in a book.

Next time, look it up in your gut. I did. My gut tells me that's how our nervous system works." -S.C.
