Tell Me A Lie

Tell me a lie
When promises kept
Are meant to be broken
To disentangle from a web
So intricately woven
Is so impossible a task
It is better left unspoken
And woe to who
Breaks promises meant to be unbroken
As it becomes ever harder
To disentangle from the web of lies
That is your life.

P.S: There are times when we don't want to hear the truth.

The Big Countdown

Well... dunno about anyone else - but for Anjum and I (lol - sounds like a film), it's time for the good ole 3... 2... 1... yep, 3 more exams to go - Stats, French and History. Can hardly wait - can you? I can just sense the freedom =D

All Wound Up

Yes... so... twas my cousins birthday today, henceforth reason for yet another enriching family gathering *cringe*... and as always someone has to wind me up so I feel like chucking my plate full of half-eaten goodies at them. How fun. Ever felt like it's only ever you? Man, it sucks. But like, I'm not the only one... and I feel sorry for my cousin too - poor thing gets double the crap I get... but hey, they wouldn't be your family if they didn't anger/depress/upset/annoy/confuse you senseless.

In other news... went for some "retail therapy" (as my mum likes to call it - as opposed to shopping which is so much easier to say but no, she has to be extra) today. Was alright-ish... got a(nother) skirt and two t-shirts and it's really at times like these when I wish I was earning for myself because I just know that my mum is going to use the cost of it all against me when I *cough* piss her off. Life would be a million times easier if I didn't have to depend on anyone... *sigh*

So, I'm all wound up - can you tell?

People say i'm not ok...


I start of with ...
Quote of the day : #Have You seen my childhooooood......
.......People say im not okkkkkkkkkkk#

Brownie points to whoever can tell me who sang that song. Anyone guess?...Brownie points are gettin scarce, you know you want yours.......noo...?.....i'll tell you..my dear ol' friend Mika'il Jameel, known to most people as Micheal Jackson, Wacko Jacko, didnt no how wacko he'd turn out to be when he was writing the lyrics to that song eh!!
Yeh so the brother (revert to islam inshallahhhhh) is now officially free. They were showing his whole after-trial blab on tv, which my brother was watching so intentley yesterday, and then popped up that song, over, and over, and over again. I was in hysterics, like major fits. The brother didnt know how right he was! And it is therefore, todays quote of the day!!

In other news, me and my dearest papa, just had this funny convo:

Paps : Look what i found *shows newspapaer*
Jumz : *Looks..blah*...oh yeh....(newspaper title-'More Lawyers are earning over 1 milion pounds now' -my dad wants be ta be a profesional liar..cuff lawyer )...I dont wanna be a millionaaireeeeeeeeeee
Paps : Why not?
Jumz: Bein' a millionaire is boring..hahahahhahahahaaaa
Paps : You children dont understand the value of money
Jumz : hah, *quick anjum, change the subject!!* you only buy those big broadsheet papers to look all buisinessy dont you....
Paps : No, i buy them coz im indian...they were free...

So much for value of money eh.
Hah, my dad is cute.
I bet your thinking,'everyone is cute to cricketgal'....hah...not true...calling people cute is a way of showin ma affection ( you hear that hafsaaaaaaa!! )and stop backbiting about me in your head!!!

Oh yeh, i had a maths exam too today. But no one cares about that.

Inciting Religious Hatred Blablabla...

So...ummm... was flicking through the Independant today when my mother dear bought it home after work. I came across this in the Editorial and Opinion section, under letters to the editor. Just for some backgorund info (so you can actually understand it)... as most of us should know, there's a bill going through Parliament that says, in short, that you can't diss another persons religion. This also includes witches (wiccan), satanists, pagans etc etc... so this geeza writes in:

"In the 2001 census, 390,127 declared themselves as followers of the Jedi religion. Does this mean that a critical review of a Star Wars film (surely the Jedi equivalent of the Bible or the Qur'an) would fall foul of the religious hatred laws?" Mark Coton, Okehampton, Devon.

I just had to share that with you =D

My Grand Adventure

Alright... Kalsoom wins - I couldn't stay offline, but I had the sudden urge to blog... and this is why...

So like... my opticians phoned on Friday before my exam to tell me my new specs were ready so I decided that today I would go and pick them up... alongside some stuff my mum wanted and also my happy pills (lol - kidding, my hayfever tablets).

So, this morning... got up, lazed about a bit, showered, got ready, hijabified and abayahfied myself and left.

Mistake number 1: Wearing my new Khusseh. Why? Well, these ones are not open back yet fit comfortably or so I thought... half way to South Harrow my feet start killing. It's too late to go back home and pointless anyway because it's not like it's Anjums wedding or anything that I need to make any fashion statements :P so; I continue walking.

Get my tabs etc.
My feet kill.

Get my specs.
My feet kill.

The back of each shoe is digging right into the back of my feet and also my pinky toes either side. Did I mention it killed?

And then, I begin walking back home. It was so tempting to take my shoes off in the middle of South Harrow and walk home bare-foot. I had had enough already. I turned into the station walkway dying, trying my best not to look anyone in the eye for fear of asking them if they happened to be carrying any foot plasters. I was walking pretty fast, which was bad and no better than walking slowly... and, for the first time in my life I saw this route as the worlds longest trek.

So like, then I turn into my road and think sod it... I just took off my shoes there and then and carried on walking. It was so relieving - for a moment... then I felt something wet on the back of my abayah and got as confused as hell. Don't laugh - but the only time the back of my abayah gets wet is when I step in a puddle... and I'm there thinking "it's a dry day... where the hell would a puddle come from?" So I was just like meh and looked at my Khusseh to see if they were wet or something and noticed two humungous red splodges on the backs of them. The wet stuff was blood. I was just like OK... there's me thinking I would have two inconspicuous bumps on both feet but no... they were bleeding. A lot.

So my trek continues... bare foot and there's some survey guy coming my way and I'm like, "alright Hafsa, you gots two options here... stop and put your shoes on or just walk past like all is normal" Either way I woulda looked like a pleb so I just carried on, handbag and shopping bag on one arm, handbag slipping away profusely and shoes in the other hand. I wish somebody had videoed me... I could send it off to Crimestoppers : "Have you seen this Moslem terrorist?"

So, anyways... I finally get home, run upstairs, empty my hands and go and analyse my feetsies. Wow... modern art or what? They were bleeding like no ones business... so I go clean myself up, disinfect my feet and bladiblah and discover that there aren't any plasters so I'm sitting here with extremely sore backs of feet and pinky toes that are very pink indeed. Somebody get me a plaster. Please.

As always... there is a lesson in this post: If you have big fat feet like Hafsa's, never ever, under any circumstances, try and be remotely stylish and wear Khusseh. Choose the never failing Aunty Jee flex: Chappals. You can't go wrong.

Osama bin London

In other news.....well did any of you watch 'Dont panick, i'm islamic' ?, it came on today at 7pm. haha...mashalah...haah. well twas from loadsa muslims points of veiws ( Lord Ahmad, Salma Yakoob..to name a few )...bout their thoughts on being british muslims, and terorism and all. I thought, it was a real well thought out programme. Aity, sure there was that bit where they showed the suicide bombers and what not, but we expect that dont we, and then there was this other whacked out 'muslim' guy, who decided ta change his islamic identity to a jewish one, coz he wasnt getin no jobs and he thought living in britain and wearing hijab and not drinking was wrong, but then we expected that too.
But actually, i thought it was a decent programme showing the veiws of rational (apart from anti-hijab guy) and educated muslims.

One bit shocked me thoguh. they were on bout british terrorists, and they showed one newsreel...'Approximately 100,000 british muslims have had military terorist training'...me and ma mum started creasin, and i jus turned to ma older bro and was like 'is there sumin you aint tellin me bro'...haha....coz i mean really, is that the most crap you've heard or what.

And then they showed the bit were Bush is like' you either with us or the terrorists' and all the peopel were lyk....hmmm..'well i aint with you...soooo.....'....but really seeing his face after so long made me wanta spit.

alhamdulilah...any one else watch it-tghere was this cockney imam , he was a jokaaaa....yeh....any one watch it...anyone....anyone at all...???

Just A Note To Say...

... Salaam.

So like, I thought I'd find out how my sisters were doing... hopefully chilling and relaxing if you're exams are over and if not slogging away, going into detailed analyses of which bright spark invented the ideology of doing exams to prove how clever clever people are and how dumb dumb people are. Oh, the fun.

MashaAllah, I came onto Brittistan today and there were loads of fresh posts that really cheered me up. That's what I love about being part of it all.

Nothing much more to report, haven't done any work whatsoever because there's been so much more other utterly pointless stuff to do, but InshaAllah, tomorrow the house'll be free and empty so I won't be as distracted with family and what not - also will try not to use the PC until I'm satisfied with the amount of work I've done. Ciao for now.

Im luvin it!

Hero's Sword
You are the Heros Sword. You are a pleasant gift to
others. Youre noble and reliable to those you
trust. You are friendly to those who are
friendly to you, but someone who rubs you the
wrong way is in for a great deal of pain. You
make a good friend, and a great partner, but sometimes ppl do not see you the way you are, though that bothers you, you try and ignore it.

SPAM *Specially Pressed American Meat*

I'm in a funny mood today. Who wouldn't be, with a giant orchad, less apples sitting on your head. Lucky for me, I have decided that i shall let it grow! Crazy idea, ne? When it already drives me crazy. Ok, i'm babblin', what i actually meant to talk about is SPAM.
No offense me fwendies but it gets real annoying when i get sent FW or chain mail. Its the same email, circulating around the very web, crazy ne? Very. Especially the wons that threaten you with bad luck for the rest of your already semi-miserable life, we don't need that! AND all those web hoaxs, i end up having to check out the information in most of them. E.G:Bill Gates and AOL merger...load of crappiness. And the Bonzai Kitten Crap, that really messed with me, my Bst Friend was gonna write a letter to the newspapers bout it.
Finally, Hackers and email viruses. Bloody hell! We have some really wacked out people living in this world. They need to go to school and get a job. Anyways wats the point in hacking into someone elses account? Only the less experienced would do that. Ok, if you think about it, most firewalls can be breached and we usually have less security on our PCs. Less than thos ein high tech facilities and banks.
We live in a society were doing illegal things is considered mostly cool. If Rules are meant to be broken, why do we even have them, there should be a law that makes breaking laws a crime. Wait a second, breaking a law is a crime but who cares. I myself have broken many rules and still do, even though i know the consequences, but that me, i have lots of faces most people don't see.
the title was stolen from my history book, under Britain in the second world war, Subheading Rationing. That my friends without any appropriate acknowledgements is a copyright infringement. I know bad Kai.
Bye bye.
*ignore me i'm in a funny mood*

He/She was a beautiful Chicky.
P.S: Exact time of death unknown

The Half Mark


Hope you're all doing well, inshaAllah - not too stressed and making the best of the lovely weather while myself and numerous others are cooped up in exam rooms writing til we have kinks in our fingers. So, I'm about half way through my exams and it's nearly the end of a weekful of exams - I can't believe it's already Thursday... the weeks gone so fast. Y'know, people were saying to me a couple of weeks ago that these exams'll be over before I know it. Well... they're not yet over but I gotta admit this week has sped by pretty fast and, though I don't feel a very strong sense of achievement, I still feel like I have accomplished a reasonable amount and haven't over-worked too much - in fact, I'm probably underworking but there we go. So yeah, right now I'm sitting in school next to Anjum and listening to a lovely Nasheed (but we dunno who it's by - lol) and now... I think I'm gonna surf a bit then go back to History revision :(
