A Preview of Ze Yet to Come

Sooo….I was supposed to post about the House Cup today, and the Battle of the Sexes that happened today.

But I’m too tired. I was going to do it anyways, buuuut

Then I got into a heated debate with Kamil, because he hugely insulted and offended me.

So I’m in a bad mood.

So…tomorrow? Yeah, tomorrow.

SOrry. Blame Kamil.

*poof*

Ze “Carnival of Cocoas” & A Rant on Mah Umbrella

So it pooouuured today, and it was wonderful. (Haha, Spring still isn’t here yet!)

Although yesterday was fantabulously wonderous!! It was raining, I had my fab ombre umbrella spinning round and round, while singing, and shimmying my way up and down the terrace. Singing loudly, of course. And, let me impress y’all with my multitasking skills, I was also texting my bro, Kamil.

Anyhoo, my umbrella died today =( After using it yesterday, I left it open in the shade on the terrace, and thought I’d just fold it up in the morning before heading out to school in case it rained today (which it did. A lot.).

Buut because I slept in today, I completely forgot and left it there. Ooh, what did Mother Nature do to my happy and bright umbrella in eight hours? Nothing. It wasn’t Mother Nature that did it. It was simply Mother.

My mom hastily wrapped up my umbrella, possibly while blindfolded, and broke four metal rods that kept the umbrella in shape. I came home to find it completely retarded and the closest thing resembling a star. I tinkered with it for around fifteen minutes and fixed it for the most part, but there’s still one rod that won’t bend the right way. It’s a small abnormality, but it still functions.

But it bothers me the most, that out of all the practical things I get from my trip to Budapest, Hungary, my mom still manages to meddle to the point where she ruins even an umbrella. And it’s not like you can get decent umbrellas here either.

Grr. If everyone’s got a fatal flaw, my mother’s is her Over Efficiency. And I hate it with a passion. A burning passion. Think Heathcliff’s love for Catherine. (#WH)

So anywaaays…It rained a lot, and the sunny days are gone for a while. It’s all cold and drizzle like at the moment.

The perfect time to search up some recipes for warming you from the inside out drinks!

And hence the title. A Carnavil of Cocoas. Sounds so brilliant ❤

But the credit doesn’t go to me, it goes to the owner of this coffee infused and obsessed recipe blog I found on my quest, Sugarbeanbakers.blogspot.com!

Proving I have the Best Timing

Now, as many of you may know, I am a Timelord. I can time travel, and yes, I do own my very own TARDIS. But that’s not what I’m here to discuss today. What I will be discussing is telling a story of my amazing Timelord Timing.

Yesterday, I went out shopping with Hadia, my mom, dad and Rida. We went to check out this sale at Mothercare for baby stuff, and during all this, I was texting Kamil. We were just talking and all, the usual stuff, I was teasing him about being superman, he was talking about how much shit I’ll have to put up with next year, that sort  of stuff. Then, we, as in my family, decided to go to Subway (it was predecided and the true reason I had come along =3 ).

We enter the store, and bam! There’s Kamil, standing in line, right in front of us. He even texted me there and then, inside the store, “funny world”. Oh, you have no idea.

And this was the first weekend after the play, so I didn’t want my parents to be reminded of that, and Kamil, being awesomely paranoid, pretended not to know me. It worked, and boy was that great. (I would’ve gotten into a loot more trouble.)

It was also a total plus that my dad didn’t recognize him either. I told Kamil that it must have been the Clark Kent effect. (During the play he wasn’t wearing his glasses, but today he was.) So my dad didn’t recognize him cuz of that. It’s the only rational explanation.

Either way, it was super funny to me, and I barely kept a straight face in the store at the time. I don’t even know why, I just found it hilarious.

So yeah, that’s what went down yesterday. Besides which, I spent the entire day reading Fairytail. Yes, reading. I started the manga. I don’t know why I’m even reading it. The animation pains me. I blame Zaid. And he knows it too. Huzzah.

Oops, I gotta poof now.

Laterr!

MovieReview (not really)- The Incredibles (2004)

images (6)

Just throwing it out there that I have FINALLY watched The Incredibles. Yay. Yes, I am goddamn sixteen and I JUST saw the Incredibles in the year 2014, ten whole years after it came out. I just…never saw it as a child. I don’t know why, I just never did.

[My parents have never been keen on us kids watching Western movies, and they rarely took us out out to watch them. So unless they were aired on Cartoon Network, I most likely haven’t seen it, or if I have, I moved here and watched it either online, or on dvd. Go Asia!]

I LURVVE Edna ❤ She is totally hilarious. I wish I could see what kind of super hero SHE was, back in the day….

So yeah. I saw it. And I absolutely loved it! I wish I’d seen it sooner. But it was amazing ❤ I’m not gonna review it properly, but just say it makes it to my TimelessMovies list. Done and done.

Totally a classical super hero movie ❤

 

 

RandomTip- Dealing with Hairspray

Hairspray would be a girl’s best friend. If it was easy to get out the next day, and NOT make your hair super stiff to the point where you can’t run your fingers through it, let alone brush it….And that is why it’s a frienemy.

But that’s not important right now. Have you ever curled your hair, then sealed it all off with a load of hairspray, or perhaps used it to keep down flyaways, or just to keep it all in place (for loads of dancing, or a fancy evening out, or whateverrr)?

Well, I know I have. Not much, or often, or even at all, if I can help it. It’s just a total pain, and a much worse one trying to wash it out!

But for the annual school play, I wasn’t allowed to follow my own rules, and hence had to put up with stage make up (sooo much more than I actually would ever wear anywhere) and curling my hair (apparently, it was a crime back in the sixteenth century to have had dead straight hair =Y ).

Aaaand they put hair spray in my hair. The next day, I took a shower, and it still didn’t come out! (I didn’t shampoo that day, because I had the day prior, but either way, my hair was all tangled up.)

Sooo I experimented a bit, and found a simple way to get hairspray out of your hair. Just put some oil in your hair, sleep with it in after your night of partying, and just wash your hair in the morning. Your hair will feel so amazingly healthy afterwards, you won’t even realize you had to endure icky hairspray in it for as many hours as you did!

It worked great with me, and even after I put the oil into my hair- oils like olive oil, or coconut oil- I was able to greatly detangle/untangle my hair since it had become super smooth, and greasy, and, well, oily.

Anyways, hope this helps with keeping your hair healthy and yet still being able to do some fancier hair stuff every now and then =)

Buh bye now!

Arthur’s Theme Song Lyrics

I loved this cartoon when I was a kid back in the States, Arthur, on PBS Kids. And one day last week I had the song “Library Card” song and that’s when I went on a search to listen to it.

Arthur-pbs-kids

(Having fun isn’t hard when you have a library card!!)

Which I did, here, on the actual PBS Kids website. You can listen to these songs from the show, like Lucky Pencils, the Crazy School Bus, and the UFO Song. And of course…The theme song!!

(Although it did have some errors in it, so I typed my own lyrics out. That I got by typing out what was said when I listened to the song. About three times, so as not to mess it up..)

And so, Imma post the lyrics for the theme song. Which, now that I listen to the song, is suuuper motivational, and perfectly perfect for raising kids. And when I sang the song for Ayesha (who hadn’t really watched the show as a kid) said it really explained the way I turned out =P

Arthur

The Arthur Theme Song

Every day when your walking down the street,
And everybody that you meet
Has an original point of view. 

And I say Hey- Hey!
What a wonderful kind of day
If we could learn to work and play, 
And get along with each other.

You gotta listen to your heart, 
Listen to the beat, 
Listen to the rhythm, 
The rhythm of the street.
Open up your eyes,
Open up your ears.
Get together and make things better
By working together.

It’s a simple message, 
and it comes from the heart.
Oh, believe in yourself,
for that’s the place to start.

And I say Hey- Hey! 
What a wonderful kind of day,
if we could learn to work and play,
and get along with each other!

You gotta listen to your heart, 
Listen to the beat, 
Listen to the rhythm, 
The rhythm of the street.
Open up your eyes,
Open up your ears.
Get together and make things better
By working together.

It’s a simple message, 
and it comes from the heart.
Oh, believe in yourself,
for that’s the place to start.

And I say Hey- Hey! 
What a wonderful kind of day,
if we could learn to work and play,
and get a long with each other!- Hey!

What a wonderful kind of day,
if we could learn to work and play,
and get along with each other!- Hey!

What a wonderful kind of day- Hey!
What a wonderful kind of day- Hey!

Well, that’s it, and I hope you enjoyed it. And found it awesome. If only kids listened to this kind of stuff once they could understand the lyrics better…instead of raps and other kinds of loud music all the time =/

Wouldn’t that be a change for the better?

Permanent Nicknames

I have many nicknames. To list even all of them would be a tidious task. And yet here are but a few.

Frostie, Wattson, Dr. Grey I. Wattson, Ze, The Mint Chutney, Maud, Maudlal, Sunny, Sunny Bro, 003, Bee to the Live, Beelive Buddy, Bashir Sahab, and many others besides.

And yet I realize now, that if I do move back to Chicago, a vast majority of these nicknames will be lost to me, since the people I will then interact with in my daily life won’t be calling me by them anymore. Stuff that have to do with my actual name might still be there, but other things like the Bee to the Live, or Maud won’t and those will only be used if I explain the jokes behind them to my new friends. So, I will be loosing a small part of me…But to me, it’s a BIG part of me.

I can only hope that my weirdness shall be accepted by at least a few, and some nick names will be sustained. Like my middle name being Irish. Like my nicknames Wattson, and Frostie. If those things are sustained, I’ll be fine.

And pshaw, it’s not like you can’t call me The Mint Chutney. I’m a super hero for crying out loud. It ain’t a nick name. It’s an identity.

And with that, I poof. I feel better about it. Even if no one is calling me Maud, or Ze, or Sunny Bro, I always will be. It’s on the inside, in my heart. Like my Beelive rings are when I’m too lazy to put them on =P Beelive!

Cuz all I got to do is beliiieeve in me, Pokemon!! (Pokemon Master Quest Theme Song)

[I also changed my fb alternate name from Wattson to Frostie for the moment. Not sure if it’s a permanent change, or change just for the heck of it. I just want to be recognized as Frostie more. Since I am. And what with this Olaf thing going around too…I’m the first magical snowman, got it?!]
