Lazy Bum

February 3, 2007  |  Uncategorized

I’m still a lazy bum but I think I deserve to be for a while, however tomorrow I have to catch up with alot of things that I have put off, yes yes its what you emailed me about, and you know who you are hehe.  I also would like to organize a few things but because it was the weekend I wanted to relax as much as possible to speed up my recovery, I currently only have a cough left and an annoying nose but the fever left a while back.

, the Dell Desktop I was looking at was the Dell Dimension E520 but I am reluctant, I want an HP Desktop but something great and nicely priced as well, I think I’ll pass by the InfoConnect show tomorrow or the day after, yes it starts on the 3rd to the 9th of February.  Lets hope its better than last year.

I just bought my sister Your Battlefield a domain, www.PureMassacre.com and I moved her there along with creating her header and stuff, it’s cool and I am hoping she’ll enjoy WordPress better than blogger.  So Yazeed, I converted Sou, Swair, My sis, Princess, and a couple more friends to WordPress hehe I can’t remember who exactly but yeah! I rock and you don’t :P

Ninjas & Desktops

February 2, 2007  |  Uncategorized

What a beautiful start to a weekend, what a beautiful start! I spent most of the day asleep since I had lack of sleep in my head, although I don’t know what head has to do with it but oh well. Yesterday was crazy, habla is obsessed with me and I don’t know why, she comes up to me at lunch to give me a weird compliment that basically was “Jacquiiiii I want to tell you something!” and I’m like “What?” and she goes like “The way you look in casual clothes is tempting, wearing flat/sporty shoes is nicer than heels on you” and I’m like “Ummm Thanks :neutral: ” I was wearing an Aeropostale T-shirt on top of a long white shirt, with a training sweatshirt top, jeans and flat (Hush Puppy) shoes. Its basically my normal uniform for college, and the type of clothes that I love to wear so I was totally myself in them, so loose and relaxed and almost a tomboy-ish :P So yeah that’s my habla intake for the day.

Anyways, today the net went haywire on me, kept on disconnecting every few minutes and drove me nuts I don’t know why so I went out to Jarir Bookstore and bought a new Wireless ADSL 2+ Router, Linksys to be exact and I opted for the newest model, the Wireless-N Model which is quite nice, I love the setup configuration for it, so beautiful and easy. But it is costly. However that’s not the only thing I bought. I left Jarir and next to it was a Pet Store, they had baby turtles, baby Chicks, and Fish. I bought a pair of baby turtles because they were beautiful, plus they aren’t like fish (who are ugly in my eyes). And I am happy with my purchase of a router and turtles! I named them Fati (after a girl with me in class, she raises turtles and adores them heehehe) and Katkot (Lilo called the shy one that ehehe). Here are a few pics of them, check my flickr for more:

Look at my gorgeous babies. The one peaking its head is Fati and the other is Katkot.

The one closest to you guys is Fati and the one all the way to the other side is Katkot.

And after that I would like to tag everyone who reads this to paste a recent picture of their desktop.  This is the one on my MacBook Lucien.

My Desktop

So go ahead and screenshot your desktops, mine has my most used icons in my desktop bar and my Adium on my desktop as well.
Oh and one last thing I am thinking of updating my Desktop and I saw a Dell Desktop on ClicknBuy.com.kw for 360KD with the 19inch LCD which sounds like a good deal but I am unsure about Dell itself :(

Ow My Head

January 30, 2007  |  Uncategorized

My head is killing me or will kill me, I would like to at least have more than a few hours of sleep, sadly enough that is not to be done, I am however going to bed immediately after I write this post.   I have a quiz tomorrow and I need to study for it and I can only function in the morning when it comes to studying.

Summary of yesterday:  Long long ass day! We were told to stay until after 6! But instead we were let out at 6:30, so from 8AM to 6:30PM, interesting long day right?  Oh well! I don’t remember much of the drama that happened then but I think it was a quiet day.  But Daddy came home and it was funny how our first conversation was through the phone!  Oh but I just remembered that we had a final that day! The instructor passed out the papers and once we turned them to start answering the dimwits started whining and complaining “But sirrrr it’s haaaaaaaaaaard!” “But sirrrrrrrrr you didn’t teach us this” “But sirrrrrrrrr you didn’t spoon feed me the answers to this test!” and I sat there in my place filling out the test which was a piece of cake, I finished in 5 minutes because it was basically 3 pages of fill in the blank, matching, and multiple choice.  Once I finished I gave my paper to the Instructor and he told me to “Leave” so I walk out.  What happened afterwards was a bad move on his behalf because the class went back to whining and so to shut them up he said “How can this test be hard when Jacqui finished it in less time and got a full mark!” and this is where everyone blew their fuses, and this is what led to “habla” girl to come up to me during lunch time to ask me to teach her the stuff because she isn’t getting things, which my friend responded to her by saying “Pay her and she’ll teach you” hehe :P So there you go! Now everyone labels me as the nerd :(

Summary of today:  I yelled at the class and made them shut up, now anyone who talks when we are told to “read” the other people look towards me to see what I would do or what my reaction is towards the talking person.  The reason I yelled was that the instructor told us that we had to read pg. 49 and 50 and he stepped out of the class, and immediately every single person started chatting up with their friends! And I was trying to read the pages which had very important information and I couldn’t even understand a word that I was reading! So I blew it! And the Instructor walked in while I was yelling at them and was happy that someone was finally putting them in their places.  The room became quiet and I was happily reading and understanding things and he was going around seeing those who claimed they read, and it turned out they read the WRONG PAGES! So he said “Wala Jacqui did well yelling at you guys!”(roughly translated of course) and so the day went on.

The days are long but in the end I feel as if I accomplished things.  Rome is seriously addictive and I can’t wait for the next episodes, I need to see Octavian and how he looks like all mighty and powerful!

P.S. The Top Ten is for “All Time” and if we count it right then it’s Purgatory leading by a landslide and not Marzouq.  Sorry Zouk hehehe but he got you beat in that one :(

The Oscar Goes To…

January 28, 2007  |  Uncategorized

The Oscar goes to ME! Yes ME! Hehehe.. you must be wondering what the hell I am talking about or if I am delusional or what, but the thing is, I am not delusional. Let me start at the beginning, classes were fine today yet I felt a bit tired near the end of the day since I managed to pervail and stay the whole time there, I feel bad on missing out on new information and stuff and therefore I just can’t help but stay even if I am tired and sick. So, first class we had a few projects to do, one of which was a game one team made up asking us as groups to write two names (female and male) for each of the categories that describe the main value known as “Corporate Loyalty” of the categories were: Most Sociable, The Smartest, Most Active in every excercise and class, Best Dressed for Work Environment, The Quietest, and I forgot the last one.

So, little old me gets what award? I was nominated for most of them, probably 3-4 out of the 6 and in the end I tied with a guy for “The Smartest” hehe ;) and I got the “Best Dressed for Work Environment” because I simply prefer to look professional rather than like any guy’s vision of a Secretary (hint hint nudge nudge wink wink). So all in all I had fun.

Other than that I still feel a bit tired and woozy and I need to sleep some more which I will do in a bit after I talk to my Twirlies but I think that this post requires just one name to end it all right?

Can anyone guess what name can end this post?

No?

Okay Okay, it’s PURGATORY!

Happy Purg? You got free endorsement from me ;p

Just a Reminder

January 28, 2007  |  Uncategorized

Apart from me being terribly sick and unable to get up out of bed, I forced myself to do so since I have a Final today and I had to attend it, whether I feel okay after it or not is left to be decided by fate, if not then I will grab a Medical Excuse and head out to the nearest Doctor to get some meds assigned to me since I am suffering really badly, I have a constant headache that refuses to let up on me.

But this post is to show you guys the changes for those of you who don’t visit one or both of my sites.  :???:

Jacqui’s Blog

 My main blog, The Couch.

 

Jacqui’s Feeds

And now I’m off to work, ciao.

I Hate Flu

January 27, 2007  |  Lesson of Week, Sick

I hate the flu, I loathe it, hell I even despise it. It is ruining my life and I am not one that prefers medicine or doctors and such, so whenever I get sick, its panadol for a tiny bit and that’s it, I depend on the natural courses of life to heal me. I take Vitamin C daily, which is Fresh Orange Juice for breakfast everyday but I stopped taking Panadol. Today however was a different day, because by midday I was about to collapse from the heat that was hitting me.

Before the end of the day I started feeling that it was extra hot when I wasn’t wearing that much, it’s just that my high necked sleeveless shirt under my suit jacket was getting to me, so by the time I went to pick up my sisters from Grandma’s house to take them home (oh and by the way I dropped them at school today as well) and by that time my head was feeling so heavy that I felt that I might collapse. I reached, sat with Grandma for a bit then left and barely made it home in time. I headed to my bed because if I didn’t sleep I would’ve collapsed. And that is about it why I hate the flu.

Many issues have developed with “habla” girl,which make me feel as if I am talking to a wall or as if I am associating with a dumbo freak but I am learning to not give it any attention or any importance in life. For example, a few days before the “habla” situation she goes to me “Jacquiiiiiiii (substituted for my real name) you have a white haaaaaaaair!” and I turn to look at her and say “I’ve got 3, so?” trying to embarrass me. Then the situation with “habla” happened trying to hint that my coat is “manly-like” hence why she went and gave it to a guy in the other class. But what happened this week was? Today, I was waiting to order and she was in front of me, she finished and moved to my side whereas I moved forward, I ordered, and in front of the guys she goes “Jacquiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii what is this red thing on your face near your chin??” and I go like ” Nothing why” she’s like “Nooo there’s something red here..” and I’m thinking “Wtf is wrong with this hoe!?” In the end I gave her a major skip and went on to order.

It’s funny how one week she gives me attitude but the week after when we start the Systems course, which I excell in she becomes all chummy like and starts to love calling my name to ask for my help (which I offer because the instructor asked me nicely to help him explain to the dumbasses who don’t get anything). Until last Wednesday when she didn’t want to call me by my name claiming that “she overused it and was afraid I would get mad” so she instead called me “Yaaa… Come Help me” and I answered back that “I have a name, use it, I love my name so use it please.” So all in all, I have weirdos in my class but most are starting to fear and respect me!

So Respect Jacqui or you’ll get a kick in ya bum! But I am still loving the whole experience, it is sooo enlightening!

Passing You By

January 26, 2007  |  Blog News

What weekend? How can I call this a weekend where I was sick for most of it, coughing, sneezing, and more. But at least I rested for a bit, I caught up with my tv shows and other aspects of my life. I also edited my template, well both templates for my feeds and my normal site.

Some changes you might be able to notice are that both the “Archives” and the “Contact” pages work now. I removed the Archives from the sidebar since they were getting too crowded and put them all in their own page which makes it much much more easier to navigate. I also activated the Contact Form Plugin which now actually works and sends me the emails which you guys can send to me. Just be sure to not abuse this, you can either use the plugin or email me at jacqui [at] couchavenue [dot] com.

I upgraded to WordPress 2.1 which rocks ass! I mean seriously nothing is as good as this! And the new changes that were made are amazing however you might get lost after a short bit of using it. What more do you want me to say? Actually I have nothing else in mind. I think I should go read the 3 chapters I have a test on, and read the material that is required from my Banking Class.

Oh yeah, yesterday I headed out to Jarir and purchased a new external HD 80GB which I named “Exotique”, its so that my sisters use that to give their friends the series I download rather than beg me to make DVDS. I also got an Arabic Typing Tutor program which will help me type Arabic as fast as I type English, and a couple of Archies and 1 novel. Fun right?
