50 First Reactions

// June 12th, 2009 // Blog

A meme I borrowed from Biscuit In A Basket:

1. Beer: I wonder why Brits & Americans drink so much of it? Does it actually taste good? It looks the same going in as it does coming out. Then again, the same could be said of apple juice…

2. Food: I have a deep, complicated, love-hate relationship with it.

3. Relationships: Simple is best. Which is why the one I mentioned above is proving dangerous to my health.

4. Your Crush: None of your business. Unless you are my crush. Still.

5. Power Rangers: I never liked them.

6. Life: is the name of the game, and I want to play the game with you. No, not you. The guy behind you. Move out of the way!

7. The President: Not a job I'd like – of any country.

8. Yummy: mummy. I so want to be one of those. Not just a mummy, but a yummy mummy (inshā’Allāh).

9. Cars: Top Gear. Aston Martin… mmm.

10. Movies: “You know what happens to a toad when it's struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else”. That has to be one of the worst scripted lines, ever.

11. Halloween: Not really a Brit thing.

12. Sex: is a biological process. Get over it.

13. Religion: My handle is 'iMuslim' – you figure it out.

14. Hate: Being useless.

15. Fear: God.

16. Marriage: I'd rather not talk about it.

17. Blondes: are cute. I would totally go blonde – 'cept I'd look like a straw-haired freakazoid.

18. Slippers: I don't wear them, as I have laminate wood flooring, and I'd like to keep my neck in its unbroken state.

19. Shoes: Not really my thing. I can't walk in heels, and all the prettiest shoes always have killer heels attached.

20. Asians: is too broad a term; so many diverse ethnicities are covered by it.

21. Pastime: This word is meaningless to the unemployed. Life becomes the only pastime.

22. One night stand:'s are destructive on so many levels.

23. My cell Phone: is relatively old, but it does the job.

24. Smoke: if you think cancer is fun!

25. Fantasy: Tall, dark & handsome. Actually, tall, light and handsome. Either will do.

26. College: I always think of sixth-form (A-levels), never university. College was probably the last time I was truly optimistic about my academic future (read: naive).

27. High school life: I would love to relive it, knowing everything I know now. Otherwise, it's too embarrassing to think about.

28. Pajamas: My new day wear.

29. Stars: Twinkly.

30. Center: You mean, centre?

31. Alcohol: See No. 13.

32. The word love: is overused. English sucks that way; we need more words for love, in all its variety.

33. Friends: I love them << See!

34. Money: I really need a job. Agh.

35. Heartache: It's tough, but when you've been through it a few times, you realize it's not the end of the world. Life goes on.

36. Time: is slipping by.

37. Divorce: I don't know how I'd survive it, but I guess I should remind myself of the answer to No. 35.

38. Dogs: They really smell. I mean, REALLY. They're cute n' all, but… the smell. The owners smell. The house smells. How do people tolerate it? I am so a cat person.

39. Undies: In a way, they make no sense; but how would we live without them?

40. Parents: are underappreciated. We should all try harder.

41. Babies: should come with a manual.

42. Ex: tra…? Umm, I don't really know.

43. Song: in my heart, and a skip in my step.

44. Color: It's amazing how it can affect your mood.

45. Weddings: B-O-R-I-N-G. The Mendhi/Hen-night is so much more fun; everything else should be done as quickly and cheaply as possible.

46. Pizza: One of the few foodstuffs that tastes as good cold, as it does hot, and can be eaten at any time. Leftover pizza for breakfast… mmMMmm.

47. Hangout: My front living room… the only place I can truly 'chill'.

48. Rest: It's a cliché, but I do believe that true rest will only come after death. There's always something to do, something to worry about. I'm not even a 'worry wart', per se. It's just the reality of life.

49. Goal: To die with God pleased with me, inshā’Allāh.

50. Inspiration: Just look around you; how can you not be inspired?

Your turn, if you so wish.

  2. Anon says:

    ^ I did!

    You have too much free time on your hands…lol.

  3. The Ruler says:

    I just went through it all. Took me a while, but I still did. Reading half a post and not reading the other half is very dissatisfying, IMO.

    Oh, now I feel like doing this too. *_*

  4. The Ruler says:

    For some funny reason, I can’t see my comment. O_O Not even the fact that it’s being moderated or whatever.

  5. nadia says:

    I read em all! Because I havent been to your blog for a while. Yeah… I miss your ramblings. :P

    Amin for #49! And for #8 too! *wink*

    “You know what happens to a toad when it’s struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else”. That has to be one of the worst scripted lines, ever.

  6. mummyjaan says:

    Oh, I read them all. Children should come with a manual AND a warning in advance :). But they’re so worth it, the darned rascals.
