My lousy blood circulation. I got some medication for it that helps. But it's an absolute horror - to lay or bow down and to get up in the morning - wouldn't wish that on anyone.

Yes, I know what you mean. I've always had very low blood pressure and understand exactly what you mean. I nearly faint sometimes. :rolleyes:

Get well Maria. :hug:


:o :o I have no expectations whatsoever any more. :o :scared: :unsure:
Hopefully another great Fed-Rafa megafinal. :) And I love them both really. :D

Don't say that Maria. Just seeing him is expectation enough for me. :D

And about loving them both, you're lying :devil: . You only love Roger but wouldn't admit it for the sake of Adam. :haha:

Having any fun these days? You need to get yourself a woman;) I know what my excuse is for being here( the family watch tv together and i am not a tv watcher) but..... yours? :D

Cuz I go to sleep by 9-10pm most nights. I need my beauty rest :lol: Actually I need about 7-8 hours a night to function. Anyway I have to go- the eldest is running a 102 degree fever and everything that goes with it. Plus I just had to put acid on the youngest's plantar wart. Podiatrist here we come. Who said this mother wants to be in her boys lives forever? Not me, believe me;) Later :wavey: Be good.

Right now, economics is the only reason :lol: He has a very nice bedroom. Has a bathroom all for himself. Full time cook, cleaning and laundry maid. Of course, he doesn't pay any rent or electricity and water bills. Or property tax, etc etc etc.

Also, in Chinese tradition, parents usually live with one of the grown-up children. My mom is living with my brother and his family. My in-laws are living with my hubby's brother and his wife. ;)

I wish my parents wanted me to go away. :p I was all set to go to Grand Valley for college, and then my mom threatened that if I went there, I'd have to pay for all of it by myself. I think she's trying to prepare herself for the Empty Nest syndrome, because I'm the youngest of 4. ;)

Oh my mother is moving in with me whenever I get my own pad. :lol:

She's cooking my dinner I couldnt live without her food. :tape: Yeah I dont mind Olive Garden's or Red Lobster's but they cant top off my mom. ;)

I went for much too long without her food during my four years in college. That was more than enough time to have missed some of those traditional dishes, especially during some special ocassions. Her bbq ribs rival any bbq must of copied from her recipe. :p

Lee
05-26-2006, 05:35 AM
And honestly, I think I will miss him very much if he's away. I can count with one hand the number of nights he's not under the same roof as I do in the last 10 years. And he was with either of his grandparent(s).

So now I'm glad I will be spending more time with him for the next 2 1/2 months.

Nour, that's a pretty name.

at 23 (24 in 4 days :scared: ) still in college i still live with my parents...i would'nt hate it so much if they were good people like Mando.

I think im going to have to move out soon, to save my sanity... maybe before school is even finished and i hate that cause id have to quit but the upside would be moving to L.A to persue my destiny :) :bigclap:

I can't remember who's 9 like Nour. Maybe Sam, Sue's younger kid or is he 10 too? :scratch:

Damn those memory holes. :mad:

:o Sorry for cursing. I've been doing it a lot lately. Maybe it comes with the holes. :rolleyes: :)

mandoura
05-26-2006, 10:39 PM
Nour, that's a pretty name.

Thanks. I like it too and, most importantly, she loves it. It means Light in Arabic, as in I've seen the light, not the opposite of heavy. It's pronounced like moon not pour or sour. This is the French spelling. :)

at 23 (24 in 4 days :scared: ) still in college i still live with my parents...i would'nt hate it so much if they were good people like Mando.

So, it's settled then. :)

The usual stuff:p Friday off and I have been a whirlwind. I seem to think that if I can get everything done in one day then I have the rest of the weekend off for fun. Sam had his first tennis lesson today and he had a blast. Nate has been home for 2 days sick sick sick. Poor guy but he is a trooper. Surviving on popsicles,creamsicles and ice cream although he had fresh corn for dinner. Yesterday he drank only root beer. Hope he feels better tomorrow. We have 2 Bar Mitzvahs to attend along with evening parties. We were planning to split up as a family but I might be splitting up by staying home. Oh well. Gotta go :wavey:

No you havent'. No, I don't have pets. I live with my parents. My mother is allergic to cats, my father hate dogs, my kids are dying for a dog and I love dogs & cats equally. My brother has an adorable Golden Retriever. His name is Dongol. His mother, Goldie, died 13 days after giving birth to a litter of 11 beautiful puppies. She ate rat poison :sad: . She was the most pleasant and adorable dog anyone could wish for. My sister-in-law, her maid, my son and myself took turns feeding the puppies and saved every one of them. My brother and his wife kept only Dongol and gave away the other puppies.

This was almost 3 years ago. Dongol still remembers me and my son. When we're at my brother's, he leaves everybody and keeps following my son and me around. That's why I think he still remembers us. :)

Dog's are loyal to the core theres no holding grudges for leaving them behind or moving on. I am sure my german shepherd would still remember even after almost 9 years of seperation. Unfortunately when we moved back to the U.S we couldnt get him a passport in time. I hope I do get to see him before he dies. He's turning twelve in December, and the last news I had of him was that he was in very bad shape.

:kiss: Thanks Randy. I will take note and add both to my list. I remind you of your promise: You will tell me what is going to happen if I ask you (that's, of course, if I actually get to read them :lol: ) .

Hope Mostafa is doing well and you're being a good 'tennis mom'! ;)
I'm busy too, Marat finally won a match. :lol:
With tennis going on I haven't watched much of the World Cup. Finally summer has arrived so I've got better things to do outdoors too. :D

I have a cat/dog allergy too. Long story. But the neigbours at my parents' place had the loveliest dog ever, a hunting dog, a mix of a setter and a husky. She lived 15 quite OK doggy years and died this March. She had a good master who took good care of her but not all the neighbours liked here. :awww: :shrug: Dunno what she did in their gardens but in 'our' garden she never did anything bad. :shrug: She got past every fence though. ;) She liked to nap in 'our' garden in summer and when I was there I liked to go jogging and to the beach with her. Now there's like something missing. :sad:

We're fine; like you, we're enjoying both tennis and the WC. Our household is cheering for the following: Brazil, Italia, Spain, Argentina, Tunisia, Côte d'Ivoire, Portugal and Sweden. :)

:hug: Maria.

I am so happy for Marat. He won in doubles too :banana: . I hope he gets far and defends his points. I also hope he'll take more liking to grass. I want him fit, well and back asap.

As I am not very fonf of grass, I only watch Tennis when one of my favourites is playing. I don't have coverage for Halle but do for Queens. I watched Rafa yesterday and, tell you what, he was amazing on grass too. :eek: :bounce:

I watch the WC more. We are a football country and, as a family, we are lunatics about the sport. :)

It's great that finally you can be outdoors more often. I hate the heat and summer. It traps us inside and make the air conditionner our best friend and I prefer the open-air outdoors. But thankfully, lately the weather here is beautiful. Mildly hot during the days but fantastic in the evenings.

I know what you mean by Now there's like something missing . When my brother's dog died, we were very thankful for her puppies. They helped us get through. But I tell you, until now, we keep remembering her with very fond thoughts.

Mostafa's second tenniss season this year will start on June 26th. He's training well so far. Nour also started training 3 times a week and she's showing great natural talent ( :secret: maybe even more than Mostafa at her age) . She's still at school though. It will be over on June 22nd. So we'll be on the road starting June 25th.

Well, that's my news in a nutshell. Stay well and give my best to your lovely mom :hug:. How is she btw? Still feeding you well? ;)

Randy, I was wondering, have you seen the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy ? It's not exactly African Literature but ... , well, it's quite interesting. It's an old movie, early 80's or something but I enjoyed it when it was released. It's supposed to be a funny movie which I think it was. Yet, it was also quite ... uh, deep. It was quite debatable at the time. :)

i loved those movies when they came out...i believe their were 2.
gosh i was young when they came out(7 or 8)...i distinctly remember never having laughed so hard while watching those movies.

yet they were different than your average comedic movie...i think deep is a suitable definition, i only really realised that now.:scratch: but you do need a hidden depth or deeper meaning to be truly hysterically funny.

Yes Larah, there were officially 2 of them. I think there were more unofficial sequels.

And yes, TGMBC never fails to make me laugh hysterically. :lol:

I am desperately trying to download both movies but to no avail. I had them both on video, gave them to a friend to watch them but never got them back. :(

That was a great movie! Ah the power of an empty glass Coke bottle;)

Randy I am at work but if you like African literature with mystery and comedy I have a great series for you. I need to ask Hubs the exact name but although it is written by an Englishwoman, she writes about a South African woman who runs a detective agency. They are fantastic. I have heard more on tape than actually read but hubs feels they are well written. You get to understand the culture as well as deal with the mystery.

Mando-summer is so busy for you. Hope the kids enjoy their tennis and stay out of trouble;) Buzz me when you see me k?
Best to everyone else here. :wavey:

:lol: just teasing you. And I heard the books on tape. Hubs was judging the first book on tape and he loved it so much as well as the reader that he nominated it for an Audie Award. I can't remember if the CD won though. Which is why I did not remember that the author was a man; all I remember was the reader who was fantastic. You actually thought you were there as part of the scenery. That's how real it was.

I haven't seen this movie, but I'll have to add it to my must-see list. :) Up there with Central Station and City of God. ;) I'll have to imdb.com it and see what it's about. Thanks for the recommendation! :hug:

I finished Weep Not, Child tonight, and then wrote the longest summary ever for it for my class (4 pages in a Word document, single spaced! :eek: ). It was a great book, the ending just leaves me confused and with a lot of questions now. Not about what happened in the book, but about African history. And it makes you think about what's happening in Darfur right now, and how that could ever be resolved. I'm not feeling all that optimistic about the world lately...lol

Yes, of course. When I was a kid/teen, there was a very long list of food I didn't like. Now this list is cut to maybe one tenth.

The problem with those crackers is I seriously don't like the taste at all but cannot help eating them. That's why I am not making sense to me. Maybe I am in denial: I like them but wouldn't admit to myself because I am becoming weird, "loca" as my favorite Doctor taught me. :haha:

Except for Guacamole and a special dip I make with Avocado + Lemon + Mustard + Mayo, I wouldn't come near Avocadoes. I so don't like the taste. :(

And Matt, pistachios are the same for me. I am a cashew/peanut/hazel-nut person. I never buy pistachios, almonds or walnuts. I can't stand them. But when I have pistachios in front of me, I can't keep away and keep cursing while I am eating them. :o
