If you want deep, this ain't it

Random thoughts from this past week:

1. We went to see our architect a few days ago to go over certain aspects of our sketches. As we were waiting for the couple before us to leave, I noticed a middle-aged Indian man speaking to another architect. His hair was slicked back with oil, which is very normal. But, it got me thinking, the reason they use oil on their hair is to make it healtheir, shinier, etc, right? But, if they have the oil on their hair ALL the time, when do they find out if the oil actually did its job and achieved its mission? I mean this guy must be 50 and he still goes out with oiled hair, how much longer is he going to wait?

2. I want to say congratulations to G & A on their wedding. I had an exhausting week because of them: 4 parties plus a sabahiya! But, I have to say, I have never seen Bustan look better. The ballroom was gorgeous and the attention to detail was admirable. Mabrook Mabrook!!

3. Congratulations to S as well who just informed me she is pregnant with her third baby.. These days I get excited when anyone tells me they are pregnant because I'm alreay compiling a list of all the kids that will be in the same age group as our baby, hehe.

4. Its so hot. Why is it so hot? How much hotter will it get by the time june comes around.

5. I'm going to be 30 in June. OHMYGOSH!!! Thats two months away. I wanna be 24 again. But still pregnant. 24 and pregnant. My mom had me when she was 19/20. I feel like a dinosaur now. When our child is in school, he/she will think I'm uncool cause I'm so old!! Mux says the kid will think we are uncool even if we were much younger cause thats how kids are (dunno if that was meant to make me feel better).

6. Should have told M-Pac to id3ee in 3umra that our kids think we are cool even though we are old.

7. Mux and I met a nice woman at the reception yesterday who told us she has been sending our blog to her friends all around the world.. *blush*

8. Did I tell you guys I got a raise at work? After working for almost 6 years in the government, I finally got my first raise! Heck, even coming back with my Master's degree made absolutely no difference to them. Oh well, better late than never. Ok I'm so gonna look for another job at the end of this year.

9. I hope my boss isn't reading this.

10. Do you guys check Pink sushi's blog? There is a link for her blog on our sidebar. She is so talented. I love her pictures. She is so artistic. I wanna be artistic!! But its too late for me now. Thus I'm putting all my efforts into making Mux more artistic and a better photographer (basically all I do is encourage him to buy that camera of his). Told him he can practice taking my pics till he becomes even better. I like posing, hehe. We were in Araimi Complex yesterday and two of the mannequins really scared him and he took pics of them. They will probably show up on our blog soon.

The end.
