Lazing around

Bismillah Arrahman AlRaheem: In the Name of Allah The Most Beneficient The Most Merciful
____________________________________________________________

Greetings everyone,

10:36 am in Bostonia, weather is nice and temperature is 23 degrees Celsius (yes I insist on the metric system whenever I can even though I've been here for 3 years).

There's a high possibility I'm going to the Museum of Science today (finally), meeting up with my good friend Abu Tarab and his younger brother.

I was recently tagged by the lovely MYSTIQUE (http://mystiquesa.blogspot.com/), so I have to answer a series of questions..

Well, here goes:

1) if you could have dinner with any three people (except Mohammed, Jesus, Martin Luther King Jr, Ghandi) then who would they be?(don't say Mother Teresa either)
1- Steve Jobs
2- Ernesto "Che" Guevara
3- Lord Belfour (and I won't tell you what I'm going to do to him after dinner)


1a) what would you eat?
Italian, Indian or Seafood


1b) what restaurant would it be?
Probably something with a view of the Sea/Ocean


2) if you could force everyone in the world to read one book (except for the Quran or the Bible) what would it be?
The books I intend to write in the future, the Harry Potter Series, Blink


3) is there a tv show you'd cancel dinner with your best friend for if you knew that a new episode was going to be airing once only? what is it?
Lots of TV shows that I've watched have had that effect on me, however if there was a way to tape it and watch it later I would do that. Otherwise, I'd invite me friend to watch it and eat with me as we watch it :) (Yes, I want the best of both worlds)


4) if someone told you that you could only have one hobby/favorite pass time for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
Travel


5) which song is on the soundtrack of your life?
Many, most lately: "Just Be, DJ Tiesto", "Red to Black, Fort Minor feat. KENNA", "Unwell, Matchbox 20"


6) how old were you when you had your first crush? who was it?
I think I was in third grade, it was my best friend's sister (one of our neighbors) :)


7) if you could read the thoughts of any one person, who would it be?
Typically it would be a spouse/lover type of person, but I wouldn't because if I loved them that much, I would respect their telling me and hiding from me what they want etc. Thus, I would like to read the thoughts of the people wreaking havoc in the world today (not to point any fingers).


8) if you could block your thoughts from only one person, who would it be?
Anyone I love, sometimes the things I think about wouldn't portray me in a positive light to them.


9) if you could choose between life on earth forever or going to heaven, which would you choose?
Is there anything better than heaven? I'd say Heaven because I could choose not to have stupid people cause so much death.


10) when you die, what will your contribution to the world be?
My writing, My business ideas (if they go through In Sha Allah), my actions...

And I choose to tag:

Sunshine, Omar, and anyone else that reads this pretty much :)

hehe, well I've been bastardizing other people's blogs with my tags :P, I just do it here, before I wear out my welcome, that is.

OK, here goes it:
1) if you could have dinner with any three people (except Mohammed, Jesus, Martin Luther King Jr, Ghandi) then who would they be?(don't say Mother Teresa either)

1- الشفاء بنت عبد الله بن عبد شمس
Who was the Minister of Finance under the reign of the Caliph Omar Bin Al Khattab. (and yes, she was a woman) When I have dinner with her, may God be pleased with her, I want to write down every word she says and save it for this wretched generation to read and weep. I'd be like:"SEEEEE? It's not Islam, IT'S YOU!
2- Abdul Aziz Bin Abdul Rahman Al-Saud and his first few sons. (I would be their political advisor) because coming from the future, I know that there'll be a million glitches that could have been avoided had certain tiny steps been taken back then. I would also discuss further means of homogenizing Saudi society, not to the extent where the individual peoples lose their uniqeness, but just so that future generations will truly be able to sense our celebrated unity. (like the colors of a rainbow)
AND 3- Britney Spears. Homegirl needs a good talking to.. and a makeover. Get yourself together, girrrrl.

1a) what would you eat?
Nothing! We're too busy saving the world.

1b) what restaurant would it be?
Anywhere with nice big, round-tables.

2) if you could force everyone in the world to read one book (except for the Quran or the Bible) what would it be?

ANYTHING intended to raise local awairness. God knows, we're rather lacking in that department.

3) is there a tv show you'd cancel dinner with your best friend for if you knew that a new episode was going to be airing once only? what is it?
YES. Lost. Nip/Tuck.
6ash ma 6ash (hey! no one's even allowed to make phone calls at our house when it's 6ash ma 6ash time, let alone go out!! Damn right)

4) if someone told you that you could only have one hobby/favorite pass time for the rest of your life, what would you pick?

Getting my groove on.. mhmm, dancin'.

5) which song is on the soundtrack of your life?
Well, I'd say "Fix You" By: Cold Play. ( I know, how very cliche) it's just so fitting in ANY soundtrack.

6) how old were you when you had your first crush? who was it?

I've had crushes since I can remember. Now I just limit them to 5 a day. Ma3 kil 9alat :-D

7) if you could read the thoughts of any one person, who would it be?
My cousins in Qaseem. For reasons I will refrain from disclosing.

8) if you could block your thoughts from only one person, who would it be?
The man I'm going to marry (homeboy does NOT need to know about my 1 crush per prayer deal..nuh uh)

9) if you could choose between life on earth forever or going to heaven, which would you choose?
Hello! HEAVEN.

10) when you die, what will your contribution to the world be?
OK, see #1, THAT will be my contribution to the world. Having layed the foundation of our nation with its leaders, given women bigger roles by virtue of what has been passed on to us by the prophet (PBUH) and his companions, and of course having revived a failed popstar from the dead.
That's alot for one girl, I'd say :-D
