Stealing a Tree;Starting a War

Yes, you read that right.

Last night were the Mosquers held by the MSA, and I was super eager to go, yet because it was late (like 6 to 9 pm kinda late) and Hibah didn’t have permission to stay, I couldn’t go. I heard it was amazing, and emotional, and funny, and everything.

But one prize the sisters collectively walked away with was The Better Side of the Lounge.

So, I suggested that we steal the tree that the brothers are so proud of and move it to the girls’ side as our prize. Everyone laughed and no one really took me seriously, but I was, of course, a hundred percent serious. And then Kholoud walked in at the most perfect time, and she helped me steal the tree and move it to our side.

So I stole a tree this morning. And it was wonderful.

To celebrate this triumph even more, the two of us went to Imanie’s office to borrow some tape so we could label the tree with a sign that said “The Best Side of the Lounge”. It was a proud moment.

I left the lounge for my consecutive classes then. But it only gets better. Because the boys were obviously not thrilled about his developement and stole it back. However, Nooriyah caught them on camera and posted on the MSA fb page ratting them out to us. Kholoud and I started fighting in the comments and so the war began.

(I texted about this to Abdallah, but he couldn’t guess what I’d done. So I finally got ot tell him at like 3:30 pm and he died laughing.)

It was the beginning of my legacy as an MSA freshie xD

However, pretty quickly the great Adil/AQ gave his blessings for us to keep the tree, and the boys backed down saying it was out of respect for him.

Later on in the day, I come to the lounge to see that the tree has been decorated with a hijab and it looked hilariously fabulous. It was gorgeous.

YET HERE I AM AT 6 PM GETTING THIS TEXT- that notifies me the boys have stolen our tree back and left a smaller tree in its place as a replacement, attempting a truce.

Bullshit.

When Kholoud and I heard of this, we got really annoyed and started plotting their demise. But we’d already left campus so we started another fb war.

It is currently ongoing. We’ll see how this ends.

Will we get our beloved tree? Will the boys suddenly decrease in number in the MSA? Only time will tell.

A Fantastic Comic Site- SatW

So I’ve been prowling the net for a website which displays cute, and interesting comics that need not be professional, detailed as much as something like the DC ones, or even with much of a plot.

And now, after so so SO long, I have finally come across a site worthy of mentioning, because it’s just SO impressive and perfectly what I was looking for!

I introduce to you, and I do hope you’ll enjoy it, the satwcomic.com ! It’s Scandinavia and the World comics =)

The characters are countries, and they all have stereotypes attached to them- America is blonde and buff, meddling in everyone’s affairs, with very little knowledge on the European countries. Sweden is a typical nerdy character, with his hair slicked to one side, wearing glasses and a collared shirt at all times. Denmark is happy go lucky, has cute floppy hair, and is rarely ever seen without a bottle of beer in his hands. Finland is a mute, menacing man in a ski-hat (the kind that covers your ears?), and always carrying a knife.

^[left to right- America, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Yes, it is a thing, and a totally normal one at that, for Norway to be carrying a fish around everywhere.][And no, America is fair skinned, but in some comics he’s got a spray on tan that doesn’t look real one bit.]

The countries wear shirts with their flags on them, and trust me, sometimes even that inspires a short story, like this. It’s hilarious!

The stories are sometimes just random, inspired by real-life occurrences, or even historically enlightening! Myths and the Scandinavian’s perception of other countries is a constant theme in these sketches, and I love it. It’s fun, interesting, and funny.

^This is a panel that cracks me up everyyyy time xD That’s America as a child, and here, England is his father =3 How cute is that? (Canada is America’s brother.) This is what happens when England ignores America when he was showing him all sorts of things as a kid…The tea got what it had coming to it =/

The drawing style itself catches my eye. Possibly cuz it resembles mine so much. The character’s are,  usually lanky chibis like the power puff girls. Although that’s hardly fair, since this artwork is amazing, not over the top, but the simplicity gives it dignity and it has an admirable effect. It’s fantastic, and I spent all of yesterday stalking that site. I’ve read nearly all the comics that have been posted in the past three years…It’s adorable and I love it ❤

I’d definitely recommend visiting this site every now and then to see what the Nordics are up to =) It’s worth it ^_^

Anyhoo, that’s all that there is towards this tiny post that I should have written yesterday….B-but, I was reaaaally absorbed in reading the comics then >.<
