My Shopping Splurge

September 29, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Since I couldn’t get something new this month I decided I needed some new jeans and a few new shirts. And I know that Pops would say “Why do you need another jeans” but I can always say, My older pair are tearing up ;P What’s nice about it though is that for the first time I ordered it to be shipped within 3 days and it has almost arrived to my mailbox it’s out for delivery at the moment.

Bits and Pieces

September 28, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Don’t feel like ranting on and on and I know you guys get bored easily so here goes:

– Heroes turns out to be a promising show as well, I didn’t know whether to laugh at the Japanese guy or to get disgusted at the little girl.

– Macaroni is now Lucifer v2, that’s what I named him, and as of now, I almost have all my programs back except well Adobe Creative Suite 2, I need a better copy of the Software.

– Shababik, and 7ailhom Bainhom are the only two shows I watch during Fitour, well afterwards I grab AbdulHussein Abdulretha’s show but just to have a laugh or two, usually its not that hot. But Shababik’s episode today was HILARIOUS! The Persian made my mom nostalgic ;P

– I want a good icon set for my Powerbook, I can’t last using the default ones, and I want one that applies to ALL of the Applications I use.

– Panadol Cold & Flu does its job really nicely, I am no longer experiencing annoying nose syndrome instead it’s been toned down, another day or two on this and I’ll probably be okay to live again.

– Recapping the Shows I’ve watched and liked this week: Studio 60 on Sunset Strip, The Class, Heroes, Gilmore Girls, and Desperate Housewives.

– Tonight is the Season Premiere of One Tree Hill and I can’t wait to download it tomorrow.

– I abuse my babies, Powerbook and Desktop, I seriously do! The amount of Downloading I put my Desktop through is unbelievable, I need extra RAM for it.

I better hit the sack. Ciao!

Hello Macaroni

September 26, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Macaroni is alive, but feels naked and feels very weird, I will be re-partitioning the HD and re-installing the OS since I don’t like how it is right now. The Indian guy partitioned it so that there are 2 partitions, I think there is a way to undo that partition and re-use it by having only one right? If I am not correct tell me so. But it feels like I am back home. I’m glad to see that.

Otherwise, I am still having difficulty breathing and I hate this, I hate flu season! I hate it! But to bring in another bit of news, Daddy is going to back soon. Woah, I missed my keyboard it feels nice to have room to move around in this. When I called grandma early this morning she asked me “Are you sick?” I wisely responded saying “You know I’ve been sick since yesterday hehhehe what did you forget that?” But let me install Adium and run a bit of Messenger-ing for now.

P.S. I’m going to be splurging on some new jeans and a new shirt ;P I just can’t help it, I need to spoil myself even when I’m sick.

Sniff Blah Yekh Booh

September 26, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Routine life is not becoming of me, and I should spice things up every once in a while, hold your horses! I am not suggesting to changing anything in my site itself, I’m just thinking of a way to change something about me. About how I write and who I am and such. I want to be more brief, and to get straight to the point but then there are many out there depending on the few words that I write to pass by the boring mornings and late nights they spend on the computer, and I love to entertain, I really do. So I am suggesting something new, I think I am suggesting that every week I have one or two suggestions from readers on topics I should talk about, I think I’ll chooseevery Monday to be the date that I will grace you with the answer to one of your topics, and you have the rest of the week to basically comment on this post and tell me what topic you’d like me to write about. Something new or old that I never wrote about before. It’ll be challenging and nice and I think I need to challenge myself.

But let’s move on from that, I seem to still have the sniffles and I seem to get tired even more and more easily these days due to the fact that I can’t breathe well anymore. Macaroni has been fixed and tomorrow I pick him up. I used to call him Lucifer, but I believe he has been degraded from that status and is now just plain Macaroni, seriously he is! And then there is the fact that today was thePhotokina event and all it witnessed was an upgrade in Aperture the software used in Photography and well I can’t help but still feel that there is an update if not tomorrow then 2 weeks away, and now that Macaroni is back I think I can wait a bit before acquiring Lucien, my white Macbook.

If Apple does release a revamped Black Macbook (which graced the screens in the latest episode of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) with a Glossy surface I will as sure as hell jump on that bandwagon because if it’s glossy then it’ll retain it’s “Apple-esque” look. To those of you reading and knowing my dilemma and how I want a Macbook, I am currently waiting not because of insufficient funds or an update, but I feel that I want a rev B of the product rather than go with the rev A which is currently in stock. It’s been 4 months or so since it was introduced and it’s not worth it to grab an older model weeks away from the update mission. But that’s enough geek talk.

I hate being sick, but that’s just how it is. I hate Ramadan TV (there you go Extinct-dodo, happy now!?) But that’s something for another post. As for now, this is it for today’s episode in “Just Jacqui” hopefully I’m a bit better by tomorrow.

Hot Bath Heaven

September 24, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Taking a hot bath after a long day or long morning or whatever it is, is so much fun, why you ask? Simply because you get to soak until you wrinkle and that is fun, so much fun. I hope one day that I can design my own bathroom, it will be spacious and have room for everything hell I want it to be huge, I want an old fashioned tub right there in the middle of it, and old fashioned sinks but with all of the latest technology that we’ll have to offer. But since today I wanted to stay brief and offer you only a few lines of my wisdom I believe I should get right to it, I hate slipping and hurting my pinky in the bathroom, I hate that I have to wait a bit longer now, and it might even seem that tomorrow won’t witness updated Macbooks but instead October 11 might witness that. Other than that, I believe I am boycotting all of the Arabic TV Shows this year, I mean I am not even following anything, right now I’m sitting in the living room and the TV is turned off, but I might turn it on Paramount or something like that, I don’t believe anything is good this year. I dislike noise of all sorts, and I dislike CRYING! Crying as if you are about to die that is and well I experienced alot of that this past few days from other members of the household. However, when I tried to catch some shut eye before Fitour I found that after 30 minutes I was woken up by a leakage from my eyes, my eyes were tearing up for no obvious reason, but I believe my sinius problem added to my cold and sore throat leads me to wanting to kill myself. And after all of this, I still find hope that tomorrow will be a better day, except that my pinky will still hurt.

I hate fish by the way, fish as pets and fish as a meal. But I do love my Grandma’s Tashreba (some sort of like Ramadan-ish dish), seriously I believe I’m going to get her to make me some for tomorrow as well, she puts in it Kousa and Carrots and those are my two favorite vegetables aside from Tomatoes, which reminds me, why does Daddy, Mommy and GRANDMA all tell me “I went to the super market today and got you cherry tomatoes (or baby tomatoes)” and I’d be all like thanks hehehe Daddy did it in the States, Mommy and Grandma with a day within each LOL! I think they think I am a tomato addict, oh well.

That’s it for me today, stay tuned for another episode of “That’s Jacqui”.
