A wonderful wonderful day.
Someone called me and we talked for four hours on the phone.

A long long weekend.
I have realized that I do not like weekends. They give me too much time to think. They give me too much time to think about things that I spend my life running away from.
I love talking. I love partying. I love being in large groups. I love doing things which are fast and violent paced. Things where I have to think fast and give a result. Things where I am not allowed to dwell upon things too long to move off into tracks of thought that I do not like.
Running away. Running away. Running away.
نہ محبت ہے۔ نہ کسی گزری محبت کی یادیں ہیں۔ نہ کسی محبت کی امیدیں۔ نہ کسی کھوئی محبت کی باتیں۔ نہ کسی ادھوری محبت کی امیدیں۔ نہ کوئی آنے والی محبت کی سوچ۔ یعنی کوئی بھی غم جاناں ہی نہیں۔
I talk a lot. Whenever I am with anyone I talk a lot. I love talking. Talking talking talking. I talk and talk and talk. I have been told by everyone I am with that I talk too much. Every friend of mine, every acquaintance tells me that I talk too much. They tell me to shut up. They tell me to stop yapping. On a constant basis.
The worst is that I realize that I am a bit hard and irritating to be with. Actually that is not the worst. The worst is that I cannot control this.
See, I did it again in this post. Maybe if I tried to have some cool exotic style?
What say you?

Today I will present you guys with a list of things I did today but I hope not to do in the next year or so, and even then only so I can blog about it.
1 – Do not go late on the day when Psychotic-Dont-Get-Late-Boss-Above-Boss-Guy comes to work in our department.
2 – Do not smoke two cigarettes back to back and then get so light headed that I fall down in the middle of the office and my colleagues have to pick me up.
3 – Do not take Coffee black no sugar if you are going to feel so disgusted that you throw up in the corner of the hall.
4 – Do not get so frazzled that you try to run to get someone to clean it up, slip on the stuff that you just ejected and nearly missed it.
5 – Do not forget your tie and cufflinks when Psychotic-Dont-Get-Late-Boss-Above-Boss-Guy comes to work in our department.

Today I am going to blog about something that will do a couple of things. It will diminish the level of respect that you guys have for me. It will may you think that I am even more stranger than I am. It will make you feel that there are somethings that we have in common but I am so much more courageous and perfect that I can actually tell them.
It is about taking your pants off while you have your shoes on. I know, you will ask, why would someone do that? But, without answering that, since I dont have any answers I would say that I have had to do that a couple of times. Actually my reason was that I didnt wanna take my shoes off.
It all started because I had to change pants and not my shoes. First I though about how good it is that my pants can be removed from over the shoes. So I just pull them down and pull them over. That is where it started. The pants were getting stuck on the shoes a bit. So I pulled on them. When that didnt work I tried at least ten awkward positions in which to pull the pants as hard as possible. One of them involved me using both my hands to pull the pants, Oh, and yes, I forget, I was also grabbing it with my teeth and pulling it at the same time.
I know, I know, this seems embarrasing but if you ever try this. I assure you, you will go through the same thing.
Eventually I did manage to take my pants off in that way. Just that it ripped into two parts and it was no use any more.
I do not think that I will ever take my pants off with my shoes on.

I have not been having enough sleep for the last two days. I have been sleeping less than I would under any circumstance.
So, I am sleepy and hence slow at work. I am making the strangest of jokes at work that makes everyone laugh like hell. I am sleeping in the office and snorting and snoring. So now, I am so sleepy that I am acting strangely and everyone loves me for being funny and orginal.
What is wrong with people on this planet. Life was so easy before all of us came to this planet. Now, first we all have to live in the same body and have a serious multiple personality disorder and then we have to be funny. And then everyone likes it.
What is wrong with you humans?

آج میرے سامنے سامنے ایک آدمی نے دس منٹ کے اندر اندر اپنے پیسے اور انا کی خاطر اپنی عزت اور ایماد بیچ ڈالا۔مجھ میں کسی بھی قسم کی تاقب نہیں۔
Sunday — 10 Muharram 1426 — 01 Phalguna 1926 — 20 February 2005Today, the 10th of Muharram, is a day of remembrance. It is a day of remembrance of the sacrifice given by Hazrat Imam Hussain.
Let us learn from it that when the time comes we should all be prepared to sacrifice each and everything for the just and right cause.
There is no greater education than learning that there are things greater than oneself.
