I got a new haircut today.
It does not look good. Not at all.
I hate the guy who did this to me.
I want to take the tv in his shop that will not stop blaring retarded music and hit it on the head of the moronic hairdresser who forgot what style I told him and made me into what can be called a 17 year old boytoy!
My crush of the week is Albie Selznick. Who by the way is just too hot to not have millions of pictures and fan websites all over the net. But he doesnt. What is wrong with humans?

Oh dear lord!
I had quite the fever last night. Which means that I was reasonably delirious for quite a long period of time. Which in other words means long, strange, morbid and shocking articles in Urdu and English. I read the two articled today.
I think I scared myself.
And about the vicious lies and heretical falsehoods being spread by Umar. I am not pregnant! He lies. He lies, He lies, He lies.

Oh man, I am so so so so sick today. I have a horribly sore throat. I have a fever. My whole body is aching. Hmmmm, is there anything left? Oh, yes, I also have an upset stomach, brain, eye, nose and gray matter.
I spent the whole day lying in bed and groaning. I love groaning. It makes it so much more classique. Lying in bed groaning, telling everyone that the wind is about to take you away. Well, then again, maybe it is not classique, maybe it is morbid.
But I have a 101.3 degree fever and I am sure I am reasonably delirious and I can say all this.
Oh and to top it all. I indulged in my favourite activity while I am sick. I indulged in my favourite activity.
Partition of India: Legend and Reality
This is a very interesting book. It gives a new interpretation of the events leading to the partition of India in 1947. The writer is a former Advocate General of Maharashtra state in India. He has used evidence released by the British Government in the 70s and 80s regarding the events in British India between 1942 and 1947 to give his own view of the events and actors of that time.
He has stated that the Congress led by Gandhi, Nehru and Patel made huge errors of judgement. They wanted the Congress to dominate India even at the expense of crushing the opposition. He states that this attitude led Jinnah to demand partition.
I liked this book, quite a lot, because it presents a point of view that I have held for at least the last four years. And this too to the horror of all the Pakistanis that I have had the chance of sharing it with.
For those of you who do not agree with what I have just written, I would suggest a reading of the book.

Today I had to go to a funeral. It has been a long long time since I last went to one. Frankly, I wasn’t prepared for it.
The part where I had to give a shoulder to the funeral bier (کندھا دینا) and carry it to a mosque and then to the graveyard was very emotionally and mentally challenging. I was carrying a person. A completely person with all the accompanying things. Then when I was throwing dust on the grave I had a strange feeling that it was my own. Can’t tell you how creepy it was. But it was a hell lot more scary than watching Oprah.
Life is so so fleeting. Here now, gone suddently. Very very fleeting. Better make the best of what we have. Spent every moment so there are no regrets later on in life.
