A Passion For Chocolate

Why are all my posts lately about chocolate? I must go to some chocoholic rehab.

Yet Another Blog

I felt sorry for my friend who had made a blog a week ago and was trying hard to write posts to get to the lucky number 12, which is when he'd be allowed to enter Qwaider Planet.

He has been begging me to advertise his blog on mine for some time, and now I am going to do so out of the pure goodness of my heart. (hehe)

Surprisingly, his name is also Khaled but he writes it Khalid, and he is the first in my class, and I am the second. All the rest of the class are masha6eeb. (hehe #2)

Now lets cut the nonsense, visit the guys blog and leave him a comment. Let him get his two seconds of fame. (hehe #3)

His blog is called 'The Blog Name Goes Here'. But it will never defeat the ultimate creativity of a name 'Not Another Blog'. (hehe #4)

Argh, just visit it. Eft. (no, not hehe #5)

Toot Tone: The Next Invention

Hilarious, you must see this.

By the way, if you want to download this, you should see my guide on doing so.

I bet I made you hungry already.

Today my mum was in a good mood and decided to make my favorite, pancakes. For those of you who don't already know what pancakes are, please find the nearest high place and throw your self off.

For those of you who do, thank god for knowing so. Anyway, back to my story.

Pancakes are served with toppings, that range from jam to honey to bananas, even butter maybe, or sometimes even pineapples.

Of course, you don't know Khaled, who drinks things worse than 2ater.

I put anything deep fried and smothered in chocolate (quote from fairy godmother in Shrek 2).

That is, I spread my pancake with Nutella, sprinkle some sugar, add some chopped bananas and sprinkle a bit of cinnamon. Ah, bliss.

I will bet you anything anyone with diabetes who ate this would drop dead on the spot. No offense to anyone who does have diabetes. But, er, you got the point.

Even my little brother/devil tried to make his own pancake, but I don't think he succeeded in doing so.

Career's Day

Today at school, a day named Careers Day was held.

Basically, what this day is about is that the school invites a few people to come and talk to the class. Not just any ordinary people, these are people who have jobs that will interest the students.

For example, today there were many employees who had come to our school. These included a lawyer, a pilot, a basketball player, an aircraft manufacturer, and some more.

Since all the students can choose whom they want to see independently, I chose to see the pilot and the lawyer. Nothing personal, I just seemed interested.

First up was the pilot, who was actually a pilot in the Jordanian Air Force. His presentation was rather nice, along with a few pictures to go with on the projector.

Sad thing that the videos he had brought hadn't worked. All in all, the pilot was good.

Next up was the lawyer, who didn't really wow me as much as the pilot. His voice was too low and he kept talking about the different courts, and reading to us the speech you must say before swearing to be blah, blah and blah.

I missed out on the basketball player, who turned out to be one in a famous Jordanian team. I'll get more information on him later.

I Got 91%

I got 91.25% this month, which is a great improvement for me, since I've been aiming to stay above 90% till the end of my school years.

My parents weren't really over the moon when they heard the mark, but at least they were okay with it.

Ah, well. Back to circle theorems.

A Piece Of Schake

I mean school, sorry.

Anyway, right now I'm doing some Math homework.

Of course, no circle theorem homework is interesting, and I say this with the strongest sarcasm, without a bit of music.

So, what better than the great, Lord Of The Rings soundtrack, that I downloaded one day from, err, sources... *cough* torrents *cough*.

It was a hefty 400 something megabytes, but because it is the best movie in the history of movies, I put it to download a few nights and it was done. LOTR I, II and III's soundtrack was on my hard drive.

Add to that The Perfect Hot Chocolate Drink ©, read this post for more about it, and you have have perfection.

I hope I'll be posting more often when I finish our mid-term exams.

When you believe that what others do is none of your business, remember this 7adeeth:

One's responsibility in his society is like a village that took their places on a ship, so that some where on the deck, and some where below deck.

When ever the group below deck wanted water, they had to ask the ones on top of them. Then they thought to themselves, why not make a hole in the ship, so we do not bother the other group, and get our water.

Now, if the group above deck allow them, they will all perish. But, if they stop them, they will survive, all of them.

The Digestive System

Argh, school projects are tiring.

Especially when you have to draw the digestive system.

Then put Christmas lights through the back to show where food goes.

But at least the final product is good and ready.

We did mess up the house a bit though.

From London To Jordan

Around four years ago, when I was in grade five, I thought up the idea of going to live in Jordan.

You see, our family always went in the summer holidays to Jordan as a way of going on vacation as well as seeing our extended family. The only thing was that we liked it. The problem with that was the life in Jordan was not the same.

I had seen life in Jordan as relaxing and calm. This was because I was visiting it in the summer, when there was no school. No wonder I felt so great at the time.

So my family took the final decision to move to Jordan. Of course it wasn't fully based on my idea, but I was the one that took the first steps.

Everything was sorted out. We had chosen a school based on our uncles opinions, which we later found out to be quite bad, and my father and mother had chosen their jobs.

Of course, everyone who tries to settle into a new country will know its not an easy job.

Neither was school.

But it all settles down, and you finally get to like the place you're in.

I mean, for one thing, the sun that you take for granted that shines on Jordan almost 300 days a year. Sunshine is one factor that helps fight depression, and it does not shine a lot on other countries out of the middle east.

If I was to say all the great things about the country I'm in, I wouldn't finish.

So next time you're in a prayer, remember to thank god for the country you are in.

Happy BAJO day.

Cigarette Packets

Today I was walking on the street that leads to the nearby corner shop, holding my five piasters that I found on the ground, that will buy my a packet of crisps that will fill up my stomach.

But today we come a bit late, and see the aftermaths of the maja3at of smokers. Except this day we saw a weird site. A whole pile of empty cigarettes in front of the shop lie on the ground.

They're all the same color and the same type. I wonder who smoked all these.

Brainiac: Science Abuse

One of the greatest shows we have missed out on must be Brainiac: Science Abuse, or usually known as Brainiac for short.

This British show is an entertainment show where scientists perform experiments that wouldn't be done in your ordinary chemistry lab.

What makes the show so exciting is that it isn't another science lesson, but a rather interesting show that usually involves explosions.

These involve blowing up a car full of eight gallons of petrol, dropping a few grams of caesium into a bathtub, or blowing up a safe with a Challenger II tank.

Sometimes they take in Physics to the mix, such as potential energy which is when a lump of concrete is swung from a side to land just below another scientists face.

It is aired in Britian on Sky One, and if you want to get it here in Jordan, you can on Showtime. Jump over to Discovery Channel who sometimes air the show.

And if you're like me and don't have the money to pay for Showtime, just download the videos from Youtube.

How They Reflect The News

Eight Jewish students where gunned down at a college in Jerusalem, and the BBC news wants to show that to you.

Thousands of people have attended the funerals in Jerusalem of eight students killed by a Palestinian gunman at a Jewish religious college on Thursday.

People at the Mercaz Harav seminary openly wept as a rabbi recited prayers over the bodies of the victims.

Whereas when hundreds of innocent children where left to bleed-to-death in their homes, this wasn't the case.

What do you think?

Drinking 2a6er

My aunt Wesam once sent in a comment, on the hot chocolate post some time ago.

She says that she always imagines me drinking 2a6er (a concentrated sugar solution, poured on sweets), and she has no idea why she imagines that.

I guess its because of the amount of calories I take in everyday, or maybe its my love of chocolate...

Hot chocolate with Kitkat. Ah, bliss.

...or maybe its because I put three teaspoons in my tea.

Mmm, I love tea. Never liked coffee though.

Who knows?

Pictures Of Gaza

I hope you've all heard what has been happening in Gaza, for those who haven't, read this. Many protests have happened around the world, as well as in Jordan, which was yesterday.

Here are some pictures from the city under fire, Gaza.

Remember to include the citizens of Gaza in your prayers.
