Shaking things up…

Everyone is having a rather longer weekend… some people with lives traveled and enjoyed some change of scenery, while some others are too lazy to make plans… I am one of the lazy ones; so I had the time to sit and think of the 10 random things Arima asked for…

But first...

The Rules

  • - Post 10 random things about yourself
  • - Choose 5 people to tag and a reason you chose each person
  • - Leave them each a comment directing them to your blog so they know they are it
  • - You can’t tag the person who tagged you (you’ll have to make new friends)
  • - As a courtesy to the person who tagged you, please let them know when you have posted so they can have the sheer delight and extra work load of reading your answers)

My 10 Random Facts

1. I am a Pepsi addict; seriously, I tried quitting, I tried substituting for all other kinds of drinks, nothing worked… I don’t think my bones will age gracefully, do I hear hip replacement at the age of 50!!

2. I am lucky/unlucky for being able to lose/gain weight so easily… either way I suffer financially with the continuous wardrobe changes!!

3. Up until I was 18 or something, I never listened to Arabic songs (except the oldies my dad played in the car during long road trips, when my walkman was busted or simply ran out of battery)… and when I finally did, it was strictly nothing but Fayrouz until a couple of years ago!!

4. I do not pay much attention to most of my properties; one look at my car, laptop and my cell phone, you’d see I am guilty of abuse!! I watch out for other people’s properties thought, I promise!

5. My hands tend to get all hot and sweaty, especially when I am nervous, until they sweat off all the heat and I am left with freezing palms.

6. For someone who has that much perfumes, I am not big on them; I am more of a natural fragrance girl… vanilla is on the top of my list along with berries, country apple, lime and coconut, and light jasmine fragrance… Bath and Body Works stuff are simply the best and The Body Shop is overrated!

7. As articulate as I can be at times, I find it extremely hard to say the words I mean the most; words that reflect sincere authentic emotions just make me stutter… I think I have emotional paralysis… it got a lot worse thanks to my x.

8. As much as I don’t seem to react properly to advice, I actually listen! When it’s good advice from people whom I value their opinion, it usually keeps haunting me until I do by it!!

9.I have authentic phobia from insects and spiders, I MEAN IT. Idiots who thought it was funny to wave a dead insect in front of me or throw an ant under my shirt scarred me for life that now I see a cockroach and I can start crying hysterically! I am way beyond fixing, so don’t try; it will only scar me some more.

10. Up until I had my kids, I always wanted to die young, I never wanted to turn 50… now that I have them, I wanna wait around until they’re all grown up and not needing me, and then I wanna die before I start getting helpless and sick… I have seen how people can age; it scares the shit out of me to be in that place one day.

The people I tag (in alphabetical order)

  • 1. Deeeeeee; A sweet girl who knows how to speak her mind, and has an opinion about almost everything :o)
  • 2. Embee; Love the sense of humor and the sarcasm; I just never get a chance to comment enough!
  • 3. Gun Barrel Klashnikov; He’s bound to say something that is good arguing material; I just love that (hehe)… Everyone here knows about your Godfather obsession though, so different facts please :p
  • 4. Nora; One of the sweetest most kind hearted people I have ever dealt with, God bless her :o)
  • 5. Ragin Raven; His blog is always a good read, and he likes Edgar Allan Poe; does it get any darker!!

Come on people, don’t be shy!


Embee said...

Thanks hun! I'll work on it ASAP. Although TE Data have been screwing up my connection and I've been relying on the neighbors' wifi's for the past 2 days. Btw, major thumbs up for your self expression. Words just flow man..

insomniac said...

Thank you very much!

Looking forward to read yours, God bless your neighbor's wifi, hehe


Яαgιи Яαvєи said...

I wish I had your neighbor Em.. where do you live? :P

Insomniac.. thank you. :)
However.. I won't throw any dark substance into my "5 things". It's not like I am murderer on the run or anything.
Maybe I am.. hmm...


I'll get working on it.


Embee said...

Out of 16 networks to browse through from my room, at least 10 are unencrypted. Google Earth shot of the location ?

insomniac said...


10 things, not 5!!!


now once everyone figures where u live, u'll find groups of bloggers with their laptops parked around your building! i call a premium spot tho :))

Anonymous said...

Thats a bit disappointing.
I kept waiting for something kinky...
you're sure there's nothing more you want to share?

Lasto-adri *Blue* said...

I really share 5 and 10 so hard with you.. (apart from having kids part, i'm not even married)

but yeah.. its pathetic to live old till you are in need of other people..
and it is pathetic how i sometimes feel ashamed of my hands... :(

insomniac said...


should i have mentioned kinky stuff?!!

i didn't know!! i am not even sure i can think of 10 kinky things!!!!!

lasto adri *blue*,

first time here, no?? WELCOME :))

yeah, no. 5 is just the most annoying thing ever!! and if u share no. 10, word of advice: do not have kids :D

Nora said...

I'll start thinking now...

TE Data sucks!!! I spent 2 hours on the phone with them today.. they are complete idoits... and then I had to go down to their office.. which pissed me off even more!! Uggghhh... sorry everybody.. had to get that out of my system..
Anyway, my internet is working.. ur more then welcome to come and use my internet.. ;)

insomniac said...

Nora, you obviously didn't get it... we're envying embee here for her neighbor's wifi

FOCUS Nora :)))

Anonymous said...

Thanks :) made for very fun reading...I also have a similar addicition to chewing gum that should probably have been mentioned in my list- it's very specific though, it must be sugar-free spearmint

insomniac said...

i am not big on chewing gum generally... but when i do, it has to be cinnamon flavor :)

Embee said...

Done! Although it wasn't as easy as I initially thought it would be :P

Nora said...

Hey babe...
Sorry it took forever.. but I did it!


Sherif said...

Simple .. direct .. and honest

Typical in that most girls get scared from insects easily ..

Haven't seen any brave so far ..

Emotionally paralysed .. time would take care of that .. so .. until then ..

I agree with you on aging .. no one likes to live until he or she is helpless and sick .. still ..nobody where this point lies on the line of age ..

After all .. you're not completely revealed .. I mean still strange ..

insomniac said...

thanks sherif :)

i know it's a girly thing, fearing insects, but i don't think it's due to girly reasons; i was shocked and traumatized a number of times :))

as for my emotional paralysis, time IS taking very good care of it alright, it's getting much worse!!

ur right about aging... my biggest fear is to have brain dysfunctionality due to age! my nana Allah yer7amha had a stroke and she lost her ability to move and speak and at a later stage they assumed she lost her ability to recognize us! it hurt to see her that way... guess what, among all her grandchildren, ana aktar wa7da zayaha fe kol 7aga, so mesh be3eed i'd share the same ending!! oh well, Allah yer7amha

hehe, u expect me to be revealed in 10 points!!! how simple do u think i am???!!!!
