Friday Fragments//Jum'uah Jottings # 12- I Won't Run, If It Looks Like Love..

Boom! Crackle,pop, went the soaring fireworks into the midnight sky and clinch went the fist of the 9 yr. old. "Isn't it amazing?," she asks. This is the first time she's seen fireworks and, so of course, it's amazing. It's always enlightening and amazing when we discover something new. Just imagine if we always discovered something new, or if that something we discovered was ourselves.

Think of all the packed powder and dusty bursts of inspiration, potential, we each have hidden within us. Think of what we could accomplish if just one us dared to be who we are,completely, all the time. I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.



Friday Fragments//Jumuah Jottings #12

Let us review the part of the summer where I head to the airport to pick up my siblings --who are actually arriving 2 weeks later-- because they've decided to stop off in Granda and San Antonia while I'm stuck in Summer school.

Then, let us review how my mother failed to realize June and July aren't actually the same month. Then let us recall how while standing there I heard "PA: Paging arriving passenger Juan Sanchez from Mexico City. Please return to gate B4 to retrieve your piƱata." Now let us laugh. I'm sure they're holding it next to Jean-Luc Cousteau's cheese wheel.

I went to get a new ID because, my wallet was stolen, which had my social security card in it as well. I found out that to get your ID you have to have your social security card, and to get your social security card, you need your ID. Did I mention that after the 8 hrs it took to find all of that out, my mom texted? She just "hoped my bad day wouldn't get worse" because on a brighter note she found my wallet this morning. It's on her bed.

More Proof My Friends Have Zero Life

So we ate dinner and watched a two and a half hour film about legos on steroids and a whored up Megan Fox err...Transformers. During dinner we met the very fortunate looking waiter Hunter. Even after the 3hrs that is Transformers, Jessie had one thing on her mind. Insert this conversation.

Jessie: Okay I'm thinking he doesn't have a facebook...I'm on page 28 of Hunters
Me: ok you need to stop NOW
Jessie: But, 29 just might be it. You think he changed his hair color? Or even his eye color?


--Why stop there Jess, he might have changed his ethnicity too!

A boy in my class insist he loves me, for I am just like his 'mummy'. At show and tell the last day of school he rose to announce she was a Lesbian-American. Great I thought now the children think I'm a lesbo--not that being lesbian is bad, but, I am not one. I was somewhat depressed after this occurrence but, pulled it together. At least she was a pretty Lesbian, I thought. Luckily I volunteered at the school the summer to which I met his mother. Turns out she's Lebanese-American!

Phew. *dancing ensues*

Over Heard Moments in Ptexan's Life


White girl to Asian guy: So... How often is Chinese New Year?

Genius with bad word choice to a younger sibling: I've been on Twitter way before it was cool. So, basically, what I'm saying is, I've been gayer longer than you have.

My lovely neighbor Geoff:What kind of morning-after breakfast implies 'thanks for the sex, but I'm not gonna call you ever again'?

Inappropriate friend outside the Masjid: God always gives the religious girls good bodies. Look at your boobs PT. You could drown in them! DROWN!
Me: Do you think we should change the subject?
Inappropriate friend outside of masjid: To what Layla's butt. I mean that's reason enough to make me pray AND fast.

--- umm does this mean you will change the subject?

Years later, in the history books, kids won't understand why OxyClean products needed shouting, unless they just weren't very effective. None the less I was tempted to buy everything Billy Mays screamed sold.

A pretty big goal of mine in life is to work for PointinCase.com Either that or meet the girl who's a goof looking for her ball.

Random Text of The Week//Where Do I Find these People?

This is beyond slightly inappropriate but, one of my friends just broke up with his g/f after learning that she was already dating someone else. Also, that someone else may or may not have been his sister. Minor details.

I told him to get even...I know real mature. 10 minutes later she texted to let me know that he tagged himself as her crotch in all of their facebook pictures. Now that's what I call family time!

For anyone else who has been in Walmart lately school supply shopping,grocery shopping, pet shopping or even shop lifting and saw this (pictured right) then you may have done like I and stood angered that you couldn't figure out what the toadballs LYLAS means. None to fear bing helped, it me

And now good people the time has come for me to pack up and ride off into the sunset for D.C. Yes, I'm actually going this time. Actually, I'm already there. As I posted this early, so technically this is my future self. *cue twilight music* Seriously though if you'll be in D.C. or at the ISNA 46th annual convention this year look for me. (Yes, I realize how terribly ignorant that request just was but, my future self has confidence that at least one person will find me!)

Well these days a "K" is a good letter to pick with all the Kaylee's and Kelsey's out there. I have cousins named Tracy, Trevor, and Tyler, so how about the t's. For Islamic names though, I'd go with A's for boys and girls.

You could do Abrar, Asiya, Aalia, Abdullah, Ali, the list goes on....

As for the planes, I think people are so relieved after 8 hours on the tarmac :)

Tagged on her crotch, oh my gosh!!!

I'm still following, but sometimes I wonder what the heck I'm doing on Twitter dear. Sometimes, I have nothing to say, but I'll never stop following you :)

Oh my gosh that white girl asking the Chinese guy about New Year was hilarious. Would have loved to see his response.

Your neighbor Geoff is so funny! Wish I had one like him to liven things up!

Hope you have a great time at the convention. Can't wait for a Friday fragment on that habibty! Love you so much!

DocMariaE said...

The Lebanese-American comment has to be one of the best... no really it's true. Isn't the whole "getting an ID" thing completely asinine? Better yet, when they want a birth certificate... I have no idea where that crap is!!! :) Have a great weekend!

Mrs4444 said...

Wow-Now that's a lot of fragments; I'm glad you got them off your chest.

Want to hear something funny? I just asked Mr.4444, "Is it wrong to say 'Holy cow!' to a Muslim? He said yes, so I started this comment with "Wow," instead. Is that funny?

Sorry-Random thoughts abound on my Twitter page. Better not follow me! :)

The little girl seeing fireworks for the first time-loved that.

Glad you found your wallet! :)

Name suggestions: Kyle, Kendall, Kiah, Kiera, Kailin

HOPELESSBELIEVER said...

LOL, I love your "Friday Fragments" they always make me laugh and smile.
Getting the id thing; well isn't it just absurd? I mean who keeps up with their birth certificate? Ok , ok, maybe I should, but, I haven't. So where do you go to get one? Jeeeezzzzzzzzzzz, they have us all numbered anyway!
I'm glad you found your wallet though, thank God for moms!!!
take care,
Julian :)
