Dear Blog: I Still Love You (and Facebook too).
Dear Blog:
I'm sorry for yet another stint of neglect on my part. I have been cheating on you. I'm not proud of my actions but I feel I must put it out there and let you decide where you think we should go from here. I was surfing the net and had been hearing about a site that many folks have enjoyed. I thought it'd be harmless just to go take a looksy and see what the hype was all about. Well from that day foreward I've been hooked. I've made so many reconnects with friends and we leave eachother lil comments daily that just make me smile when sometimes i really need the pick-me-up. It's not that you don't do it for me anymore, I just like the variety. I know, I've been gone awhile, but i think if you still want me, i can find a happy balance btwn you both. Now, don't be jealous, there's really nothing to be jealous about. Here, if you don't believe me, this is what I've been doing:

Islamic term of the day is Niyyah. Niyyah is one's intention made to do an act, for example my niyyah (intenetion) is to share information with all my FB friends

Time Travelling: Jamaica 1977, Bob Marley's matches got dampened in the rain and he can't get his splif lit. I tell him, "Don't worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright." He smiles and reaches for a pen and paper. Glad that worked out for him.
May 11 at 7:11am

Time travelling: 16th Century, on a beach in what will be Virginia, chillin' with my indigenous sisters and brothers and we get to talking about travelling. I warn them about transparent-skinned men that will soon arrive from the sea bearing disease ridden gifts and speaking with forked tongues. My people laughed and warned me to stop eating the shrooms growing under the dying oak tree. What-r-ya-gonna-do?

"Words of the Day Wednesday!" Here's a strange one: "PomPom" (as in pompom girls or cheerleaders): adornment - a decoration of color or interest that is added to relieve plainness...Not to be mistaken with "PumPum": Jamaican term for the female sexual organ...or is it? Hmm
May 13 at 9:11am

Words of the Day Wednesday: Effect vs. Affect: generally speaking (but this is English and that means there r rule breakers) "effect" is the noun and "affect" is the verb, ie. "I was negatively affected by her comment. The effect of this was disastrous for her."
May 13 at 9:24am

My husband says I'm nuts because I talk to myself
May 13 at 9:35am

The reason that I talk to myself is that I enjoy hearing a good conversationalist, and I appreciate an attentive listener.
May 13 at 9:36am

It's alright to talk to yourself. It's even alright to answer yourself. It only becomes a problem if you're talking to yourself and you go "Huh? What did you say?"
May 13 at 9:39am

My Cheerios ARE healthy! They just aren't allowed to say so on the box, that's all. FDA meanies...
May 13 at 2:24pm

"Words of the Day Wednesday": SHARI'AH: literally means ‘way to water’ – the source of all life – and signifies the way to God, as given by God. It is the Way which encompasses the totality of man’s life. ;the divine code of Muslim conduct.

"Good evening. Welcome to JetBlue Airlines flight 321 destination Oakland, California. My name is Hussain AbuBakr bin Saleh and I will be your pilot for this flight. So relax and enjoy the ride. We should be taking off as soon as Homeland Security and the FBI have removed my name from the "No Fly" List..

"This is my life Thursday":Got all of 2 hours sleep last night before time to get up, eat suhur (early morning meal before starting a fast) and pray. Now Zombie Mom will attempt to feed kiddies and sleepdrive Chief (my 6 yr old) to school.
May 14 at 5:46am

"TIMLT":Droping Chief at the school and a big red, over compensating truck man in a hurry nearly crashed into me! "What the f***! This is a f***ing school you a**hole! These r f***ing little kids you dumbf***!" @least I only thought most of that and didn't verbalise it (still bad i know). The window was up so he didn't hear me at all. And my face is covered so he couldn't read my lips. But I had on my ANGRY EYES

Welcome to "For The Record Friday": for the record, i am a Muslim. i am not oppressed on most days. right now my 3yr old won't leave me alone, so today i am. when i'm out i dress in hijab (loose fitting clothes and head covering). i also wear a veil (cause i just loooove to hear the snickers from passersby). Oh and i'm always trying to be funny, but it comes out cynical instead. And i love Calvin and Hobbes

For The Record Friday: It is not grammatically (nor politically) correct to call a Muslim a "suicide bomber" to his or her face. If one were a suicide bomber, then you couldn't possibly be talking to him because he's dead. Just thought i'd share

For The Record Friday: i may need a FB intervention real soon

Who Said It Saturday: "One may ask: 'How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?' The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: There are just and there are unjust laws. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws."

WhatnotWednesday: Ok, so why is an Orange named after its color? An apple isn't called a red or a green or a yellow. Yeah, I hear you, an apple has more than one color. Then what about bananas? They're tipically yellow. Why don't we call them yellows? Maybe whoever named the fruit(assuming Allah left that up to us)named all the fruit and then got to the Orange and was like: oh heck, what color is it? Lets go w/that.

I'm a "stay at home" Wife & Mom (childcare provider, dietary specialist, teacher, housekeeper, schoolbus driver, hairstylist, secretary & nurse). Now some folks might say that i don't have a job. But tell me, how much do folks get paid to do just the childcare part of my multifaceted occupation? I need a better union

KnowledgeOfTheDay: Hadith(saying of the Last Prophet, saw): "The example of a good friend in comparison with a bad one, is like that of the musk seller and the blacksmith's bellows (or furnace); from the first you would either buy musk or enjoy its good smell while the bellows would either burn your clothes or your house, or you get a bad nasty smell thereof."
