"I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5 lb. perch in my lake."

George W. Bush answering a German newspaper reporter who asked him to name the best moment of his five years as President.

Law of Probability and My Messy Room

I don't like to share this with many, but only between you and me.

I like things tidy and neat. As I was folding yet another shirt today, I asked myself, "Why is it, that it is easier to dirty a room than to clean it?"

Because, my dear, we are victims of a law of probability. You see, there are more chances, more places, more spaces for something to be outside of its place, than the small likelihood that it would be in its right place.

The world is increasing in entropy (randomness) and I must learn to live with it!

Heavy Sigh

Okay, so I high-jacked this off 'his' web space. I doubt he would mind, considering:

A) I am the person he his referring to.
B) He took my idea.
C) He doesn't know about this blog ;)
D) It made me feel so good that I had to share.

...And then came the day where my sense of perception shifted to some new level ... even though I was playing the song for the first time, I could swear i was anticipating like every word in it, there were even times when i let myself play on some of the words ... OK, maybe a lot of them. They weren't just expressive enough, you see ... To this point, I must at least got you wondering what was so catchy about this song. Was it the singer, the writer, the producer maybe . I tell you it was a listener, the listener ... a listener who once said that she looks so much like the girl in the song, and I believe without the least doubt that there is no way something so heavenly would be described with earthly words, but to my mind it added another piece to a beautiful puzzle i have been putting together for quite some time. Could you imagine a talking Charlie Chaplin with a dolby surround, a Monaliza giving you the blink, a 3D Tom&Jerry, I say it had the same effect ... I finally got the perfect stimuli to blow some soul into that still masterpiece hanging on the back of my head... Learn the words, boys and girls, I might need you in the chorus for my next big party ;)

Are you a nurse?

I respect nurses, I really do. The world needs nurses as much as we need doctors, technicians, etc.

However, if another person asks me if I am a nurse, I am going to say something really, really, really mean.

Long distance relationships and Newton's Law

So this summer is the 'make it or break it' into med. school. So I whimpered 'no' to an offer to visit Lebanon in hopes of concentrating on the lovely test that I adore oh so much.

I am waisting time, guiltily, but amusingt myself with the correlation that I see with the physical sciences and relationships...for example:

All objects have some sort of attraction to each other...we exert an attractive force on Earth and it does the same to us...only the Earth's mass is much larger than ours, so our force is negligible. The farther two objects get from each other, the less the attractive force...

And that brings me to us, humans, the father we seperate from each other...the harder it is to maintain that attractive force...those who are in long distance relationships are at a disadvantage than their nearby counterparts...thank God for globalization!

Let's Get Off Our High Horse!

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad advance to open communication with the U.S. is an invitation that the U.S. should accept. Opposition of diplomacy with Iran stems from fear that it will hinder international community involvement. Some believe that by speaking to Iran, the U.S. is contradicting its claim that this regime is 'evil'. Because we, the U.S., have branded this country as such, talking to them will show volatility to our enemies and friends, but that is a shifty foundation for a weak argument.

The benefits to diplomacy far outweigh throwing down the gauntlet. First and foremost, we do not have the resources for another burdening war. We have already spent over $100 billion on Iraq. Also, we cannot prove to the international community the justification of military action unless we have used all possible political maneuvering. The belief that by speaking to the enemy, we are endorsing their ideology is nonsensical. The U.S. has communicated with Iran not too long ago during the onset of the war on terror. So why can't we talk once again?

Cannot Be Said Better

I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple,
pray in your church.
For you and I are sons of one religion,
and it is the spirit.
Gibran Khalil Gibran

Ode to Heart Ache

In my eyes, you will never see
The torment and agony

Laugh and giggle,
Pretending to be
A woman who is not me

If I were to show you inside
It would be an utter surprise

But, you see, I put on a good show
For you never really did know.

Yet I

The World's Oldest Profession

Prostitutition is a legal profession in Germany. In fact, prostitutes not only get health care benefits, but also pay taxes as well. Unfortunately, competition from eastern European women who offer their services at a cheaper rate are deflating the price of 'love'.

Native prostitutes are now changing careers to be elderly caregivers. Other prostitutes in the country will not give up their avocation, claiming, "No way, I am making too much money here to switch careers."

Consequently, the upcoming World Cup is a lucrative event for these scarlet women, a chance to cash in on their trade.

No comment.

After my fellow bloggers brought to my attention Albright's statement about the concessions the U.S. is willing to make regarding the killing of half a million civillian lives in Iraq, I have decided to take back my statement.

Madelein Albright, I no longer heart you!

Although most people believe that it is what you do that defines you..lately I am realizing that it is the things I don't do that define me.

I Heart Madeleine Albright

I like her.

Not only because I liked the way she handled herself in the interview (i.e. very direct, good eye contact) but also two statements:

1. She not only openly expresses her concern about our country's place in the international arena, but also has the guts to tell our President to his face.

2. She says, "There is a special place in hell for women who do not help each other."

Bedeh Beirut

I wish I could click my heels and be in my country.


Hey Zeina!

This is X. I am calling you because I desperately need you...remember? I only call you whenever you are of use.

Call me back!
