Meet the Twirlies

The Twirlie Gang is a gang of ummmm psychotic women who tend to gang up together to gut poor defenseless males, wops that’s not the definition that I am supposed to share with the masses, but seriously the twirlie gang is a group of crazed females who talk about anything and everything, we started out as four but one of us dropped out due to no longer being available at any time of the day to speak to and now we are 3, the 3 cheerful muskeeters. The three crazed, psycho, erratic females, ones whom you should always beware of ;P hehe Nah I’m kidding, this group consists of yours truly and Sou Sou and Nani Ananyah :P Hehehe

I don’t remember exactly how the name “Twirlie” came up but I do remember that it was Ananyah who named us as such. She recently wrote about how we were always there for her and such, but the truth of the matter is that she was always there for us as well. Currently I am missing my gang members, Sou Sou is busy with University and is being tortured by KU whereas Ananyah has moved out of Aberedeen and to Glasgow and therefore has no internet connection until the 25th, which happens to be the day that I am anticipating a new release of the Macbooks. See I had to do this :/ I had to bring in one mention of Apple.

Characterizations of our group, well there is the geeky talk of course with moi, and there is the everything else but geeky talk with Sou Sou and of course there is everything and geeky talk with Ananyah :P I love those girls so much hehehe we even have some personal jokes between us, I don’t think I want to share any.

The above cartoony characters are my depiction of us, of the group, see we all love each other hence the shirts with hearts, however each shirt has that person’s favorite color, mine is red, Sou’s is pink, and Ananyah’s is Light Blue. Each has the color of skin and hair that I found that closely resembles them, and therefore the portrait of us :P

Why am I writing all of this? Why now? Well no specific reason other than I miss our weird chats, each one of us jumping in with a story, we are multi-taskers, believe me! We can have 3 different conversations at the same time and follow each one hehe ;p And we share a love for soccer that was well demonstrated back during the World Cup days ;P However our taste in different subjects differ. I hope that the 25th witnesses a reunion between us girls ;P

All I want to say right now is that I love you hoes :* (yes I call them that and they are fine with it ;P I’m mean but hey I’m me! ;P)

P.S. Sou-Sou I put your favorite glasses on, well they are supposed to look like your Ray-bans ;P Hehehe I have my braids, which I don’t do unless I am really bored at home, and Nany has her heels!

P.P.S. Girls we need those 3 girls to be buttonized so that we wear them with pride on our blogs :P Hehehe, friendships are becoming weirder and weirder these days LOL! From meeting in the past at school and becoming friends over recess or lunch, to becoming online friends first and real life friends when we meet. And we have to meet up when Ananyah comes to Kuwait okay Sou?!

Review: Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip

September 20, 2006  |  TV

I don’t know how much I can say or what I can say about this new drama TV Show, but I can tell you this. I loved it! I loved every single second of it. I started downloading it last night and watched it just a few minutes ago. It’s got something, it’s got some charm and charisma that will soon establish it as one of NBC’s leading shows. The fact that Matthew Perry is on it shouldn’t discourage you from watching, he is nothing like his character on Friends, Chandler, in fact he plays a writer who is going to save “Studio 60” a show that is similar to “Saturday Night Live” and to tell you the truth his partner in crime, or better yet Bradley Whitford, the actor playing the director along side Matthew Perry is great too. The entire cast seems promising. Amanda Peet’s character the President of NBS is too charming, too charming for her own good, but I just can’t wait and see what’ll happen with this cast. This show is truly one that I won’t miss out on downloading every Tuesday (it airs on Mondays on NBC) yet we get to watch it a day later.

I would rate this a 4.5 out of 5 stars. I hope that this will end up being something more than great to watch.

Chicken Corn Soup Tuesday

September 19, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Another day passes you by, another day spent doing pointless tiny things here and there, right??‚? Yes that’s exactly how I feel, that’s what happened either way. But I had a bit of fun today. Apart from getting paid and closing a certain bank account that pissed me off big time, they seem to be sooo behind times and I just don’t like them anymore, I saw my Uncle again. It’s been a month and a half or almost two months since I’ve last seen him. He came back from the States last night and I got to see him today ;P Next homecoming celebration would be Daddy when he comes back hopefully soon. I would at least have someone to share some duties with, it kinda sucks having a double shift driving routine every day. I have to pick up Lulu at 1 and then Dee and Neece at 2:30 and although I have nothing better to do in my mornings, I prefer having one driving trip a day at least hehe not many going and coming ;P

It was also a nice day since I had chinese food, and I’ve been missing that for a while, nothing beats China Town’s Chicken and Corn Soup and I adore that soup so much! It was fun but it wasn’t worth the 1 hour traffic jam that I got stuck in :/ But in the end I had fun eating chinese food which I haven’t had since before I left for the States.

Pez is my friend, the real Pez not Fez from 70’s Show, I can’t wait until this week’s episode of Weeds is done downloading, and I also can’t wait for Studio 60 Sunset Blvd to finish downloading as well. I need something nice to eat for dinner, craving a cheese sandwich, its easier.

I miss my F9 and F10 and F11 and F12 buttons on my Powerbook, you know how if I wanna know the exact date or what month it is I just press F12 and I go to my Calendar Widget, or F9 and have all my open windows shown to me, why can’t Windows have this? Why? Why?

P.S. Today was a projected date in which Macbooks and Macbook Pros would get an update but nothing was witnessed, so all bets are placed on the Special Event at the Photokina convention next week on Monday. I’m crossing my fingers for an update. AppleInsider reports that the entire Macbook line will get updated in time before the holidays, meaning sometime between now and before Thanksgiving in November. And therefore, I will wait until then, I guess Daddy is happier now that I am going to wait after all, I just hope I don’t touch the saved cash that I already have that is reserved for the Macbook :r

*sigh*

21st Century Renaissance Man

September 19, 2006  |  Deep Thoughts

Sitting here searching for a nice topic to write about gave me a weird idea or made me think about something I studied back in High School. Many of you might not know this but my favorite class in High School was History since I loved learning history about the different civilizations that came before us. (But I loathe the Kuwait History or the US History that schools force us to learn, Kuwait History in college and US History in High School, simply because there is not much history there to truly appreciate the knowledge being forced into your heads.) But what I wanted to mention today was the term “Renaissance Man” sometimes its written with lower-case letters and sometimes not. A quick search in Dictionary.com gave me the following definition to share with you:

a cultured man of the Renaissance who was knowledgeable, educated, or proficient in a wide range of fields.

This of course got me to thinking, knowing that Leonardo da Vinci was known as a “Renaissance Man” or a “well-rounded man” I thought about how he was called that because he was educated in many different fields and areas. He was known to many as a painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, mathematician and philosopher. He focused on four main themes: painting, architecture, the elements of mechanics and human anatomy. [Link] What I am trying to say is simply that his knowledge spanned many different areas which allowed him to be called a “renaissance man”.

In this day and age, we are faced with many new developments, one of the major ones is the technological developments and future communications revolution. There are many different and new fields out there that didn’t exist back then, so what I am thinking is that the term itself is now perhaps changing to suit this new century, no longer do arts mix that highly with sciences but then again arts have progressed and are now used as an even stronger voice of the people.

This of course all might be my crazy talk before I go to bed, and it might not be. This also might be the result of taking 2 panadols and chocolate but then again I never had any side effects there. I just have deep thoughts now. I find that the future “Renaissance Man” is one that is well versed in the technological advances made in fields such as music, science, and computers? But I think I should quit writing now because I might have lost you somewhere along the road.

Sorry again.

History Repeats Itself

September 18, 2006  |  My Life

You know how in History class the first thing your teacher would say is that “History repeats itsel”? Well it’s true, because apart from all the wars that were fought were fought for the same reasons or apart from the fact that many things happened at the same time a few hundred years later, I have personally discovered how history repeated itself for me. The proof is the following post, written last year on this same date, it said the following:

  1. I’d like to change the template of this blog because it’s been more than 1 month since I have changed, actually ever since May :/ So I’ve gotten bored of it, I need an inspiration.
  2. I’d like to have the iPod Nano for personal reasons In other words (just because I want to!) and apparently Uncle Dearest has found only one Black one, but a 2GB model, and so he purchased it for himself :/
  3. I’d like to find something inspirational to write about or something just to write about and my mind draws up blanks everytime.
  4. I love my Powerbook, and my Desktop, and my Tablet PC  Well I love my little family of Gadgets ;P And I hope they love me too
  5. — Excerpt from “Wish List” written 18th Sept ’05

So as you can see, I wanted a new template, and knowing myself a day later or so I would’ve put it up. And here we are with a new template or new theme (the difference lies in that the template is the structure itself, theme to me is the theme of template, as in this theme is called ‘Addictions’ get it?) Next item was me wanting an iPod nano, well I still want one of the new ones but that doesn’t mean I’ll get it anytime soon unless anyone cares to gift it to me :P Then comes the bit about wanting something inspirational to write about, read the previous post and you’ll see the connection. Then my gadgets love but of course my Powerbook is dead right now, and my Desktop needs some extra RAM and my Tablet PC well is too cramped for my fingers. And that my friends is how History repeats itself.

“Time Capsule” is truly a great plugin, I should post up the link to it soon for those of you who are WordPressers, I love reading previous posts.

The Transition is Complete

September 18, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Sooner or later you’ll run out of titles for your posts, sooner or later you’ll even run out of material, but here at Jacqui’s you won’t experience that anytime soon, instead you’ll experience craziness and chaos.

I am pleased to announce to you that every editting bit has been completed of both my Site, Blog, and Feeds pages. I believe I can rest easier now knowing that nothing is messed up. You may mention a thing or two that would need tweaking otherwise I believe I am set. I think I have also found the theme that’ll stick with me for a long while, perhaps until next year if not later. I do appologize to those of you who feel a bit disturbed about that “skin” showing in the image I have above but I find that I love it. It embraces the Jacqui that I portray. The working blouse with the boxers almost look like something I would do, I don’t have a job yet and so most of my time is spent at home-ish. But enough about that. I need a new thing to do now.

Turning a new leaf, or starting a new page in your life sometimes is hard, but also sometimes it isn’t. One of the reasons of why lately I’ve been feeling down and such is because I am experiencing a dilemma with an acquaintence of mine, I would call her a friend but I believe she doesn’t deserve the term much anymore. I am a nice person, really I am but I think that I am too nice to people around me that eventually I become the doormat for them to walk all over me. But that will be the old me, I shall make it my mission to no longer be that friendly anymore. That itself is my new leaf.

I need more laughter in my life, I need more laughter in my blog, I need to go crazy one day and just write craziness that’ll help soften the mood of Jacqui, it’ll help me look at something calmer. Hehe, I laugh easily and get mad easily, I believe it has to do with my zodiac sign the Sagittarius, such a mighty sign this one. Seriously, we are like the party people and the cool fun people to hang out with :P

I don’t think I am making much sense, I don’t think that the post is going to make sense when anyone reads it but good luck with that.

Next project: Redesigning Daddy’s Blog.

P.S. I miss Macaroni (the name Daddy gave my Powerbook), and my Acer Tablet’s keyboard is so tiny that it gets annoying typing on it sometimes, 10.6inch screen is a bit annoying at times as well, but oh well, here’s to hoping the Macbooks get an update within the next 10 days and I place in my order.

Hello New Addictions

September 17, 2006  |  Blog News

A day or actually three days late but I finally got the chance to complete the template and put it up. It is beautiful, I am loving it, and you all will have to love it, no words of complaint because I will really smash your heads with my hammer :@

But seriously, today or better yet tomorrow which is Sept 17, Sunday happens to be the day of my saying goodbye to my previous template code named “Jet Plane” which was made to show the time period in which I was abroad on my semi-vacation visiting my sister and basically working to move her from one apartment to another. It was a beautiful time but I can now really say good bye to it. So let’s dim the lights on that template.

dimlights.jpg

And let us welcome my new theme which is called Addictions. Why Addictions? Well I basically feel that my readers are reading my addictions, I’m reading my own addictions as well, I write mostly about my favorites and the things that I am addicted to, and therefore I want to share my addictions with you. Initially, the images that I set out to use were not the ones used in the final product but I am glad that I have chosen this instead. I get that the main image might be a little too provacative but that’s my choice, and if you don’t like it then what can I do? or better yet what can you do? You might notice more changes done, but honestly it’s the same template as before, just changed the colors a tiny bit and font is now “Arial” I am not sure if it’ll stay that way or change but we’ll see. As for the box that used to house the “date and time” it has now been reduced to a line. It is beautiful all in all and I am proud of it.

Thanks goes to of course the youngest graphics designer (I dont care if there are younger she’s the youngest now and here) Neece My Sister #4, and of course thanks goes to Maria Carla Boscono ads that were shown in Elle Italia and were scanned by young users in the Foto Decadent Livejournal Community [Link].

I am glad that this is over and done with and I am also honored to announce that I have taken down the Evil and Angelic Ducks from my main page www.Rubduckie.com and instead replaced it with the similar graphic with links to my Mail Site, Blog, and Feeds.

Do enjoy and leave lovely constructive criticism, I take back the threat :P
