I went over to a my friend Sharshar to get some cds he had left for me, he was out of town and had left them at his place. So he told me to go by his house and take them off the maid, here's the conversation that took place. The maid was there with elderly relatives of his, so I rang the intercom and down came the maid talking to me at the building's gate.

Me: Hello
Maid: Hello, how are you?
Me: Fine thanks, I want to thank you for bringing these things down.
Maid: No problem, say hi to Tuta for me.
Me: I will, goodbye.
Maid: Why don't you come up and have something to drink.
Me: Okay
Maid (with a frightened look) : You do know that sharshar isn't here don't you?
Me: Yes.
M (still frozen no movement): ermm...
Me: It's okay I was just kidding, I'll be on my way now
Maid (didn't get the joke) : Salaam

I'm a little evil, I know, but that's how I usually goof around with people who throw around boatmen's invites.

The Greatest Gift

I feel sorry for all fanatics who have locked themselves up in this world and have not enjoyed it and in effect squandered the greatest gift of all given to them by God, life!

A Woman's Forgiveness

Dostoevsky says:

'Never ask a woman for forgiveness, on no account will she forgive you in a simple manner, no, she will degrade you to the level of a floor-cloth, she will find things that never even happened, will take everything, forget nothing, add things of her own and only then forgive'

and he says that this is so with the best of them.

The Siege

This movie was made back in '98 and yet it was so prophetic in how it conveyed the problems that were already apparent even back then.

It appears that somehow the whole world ended up where it didn't want to be.
