An Obama White Christmas

December 4, 2009

Was just looking at the picture of the Christmas Tree in The Whitehouse..

isn’t it a beautiful tree??
I wonder did they decorate it themselves or did they have a bunch of elves do it for them?
I like the tree..but..a BIG but…the yellow and blue curtains behind really have to go………….terrible.


All I want for Christmas…….

December 4, 2009

As the festive season approaches… do you find yourself writing lists? I do.. every year… presents to buy for people, cards to write, things I need….
Top of my list this year is a pair of Uggs.. last year I bought ‘fakes’……this year I’m hoping for the real deal.
Saw them in Kuwait for 70kd which is pretty good..
Personally, I don’t like the classic sheepskin ones.. I prefer the cardy uggs.. much prettier..

Love and Laughter

It’s been awhile, I’ve been ”afk” but now I’m back.
Hope everyone had a blessed Ramadan, wonderful Eid, Happy Thanksgiving and for those celebrating Christmas, it’s not far off either!
Personally, I had a lovely Eid, ate too much food, laughed with family and am preparing now for Christmas!

two headed bairns

August 21, 2009

A few strange news stories have emerged this week…one of them being this

In Los Angeles, it has been reported that a woman has given birth to a baby with 2 heads……..
After 12 abortions, mom, 42, gives birth to a 2-headed baby, whines: “Why did this have to happen to me?”

well…..need I say more?

The Perfect Housewife

August 21, 2009

I was watching Anthea Turner’s, The Perfect Housewife on MBC 4, yesterday morning.
I was laughing as it started because there is NO-ONE on this earth that can be as pristine clean as her……….
Anyway, she really grilled the two ladies and to be honest.. well, their houses were disgusting.
BUT. She did have a few tips that even I picked up on..
When it comes to ironing, really there has to be some kind of routine..
For example, when it comes to a shirt, there should be some structure/organisation.
So, instead of maybe swirling the shirt round a few times, trying to figure out which part you have ironed and which parts you haven’t. Have an order.
1. Collar
2. Cuffs
3. Seams/Buttons
4. Front
5. Back

Normally it takes me 3-4minutes to iron a shirt properly, with this method it took me just over a minute and a half.
Another handy tip was, don’t spray the starch on the inside, spray it on the outside.

Yummy Yummy! Garlic Mushrooms!

August 21, 2009

This is a simple recipe, great for a starter or light brunch! Heat oil over high heat at 375 degrees.

Prepare batter. Mix up corn starch flour, a little baking powder, little salt, some garlic and butter and blend in a bowl with milk. Carefully dip the mushrooms in flour, then in the batter – coating completely. If batter gets too thick, add more water or milk a little at a time. Fry 6 or 8 mushrooms at a time in hot oil until golden, about 5 minutes. Drain on absorbent paper.

You can add a simple side salad with this and if you forgot to make it, you can keep the mushroom warm in an oven, it might also help to drain out some of oil!

Beyonce’s Sweet Dream

August 19, 2009

Well, every night she rests in her bed and hopes that she gets a chance to see him…………… wonder why she is still making songs like this if she is so happy with Jay Z ?

Strange, right? Even Halo was well…….

Shouldn’t she be singing about marriage bliss? LOL.
Anyway, it’s a pretty decent song…
I just don’t understand why at one point she is saying………….. I don’t wanna wake up and then she sings ‘turn the lights on’ . I mean, it’s a bit .. well, doesn’t make sense…….
Here is it………

Who is Barney Frank?

August 19, 2009

Is he some famous musician? actor? politician?
I only know two Barneys……..

One is really annoying, big and purple…..I’m sure you are familiar with him and the other is Barney from How I met your mother and well he is just downright…. hilarious.
He is one of the top tags on Twitter and I’ve nooo idea who he is. I know a quick google would tell me, but, I can’t be bothered to look…………..

So, someone tell me…….

Who is Mr Barney Frank?

Michelle Obama and her booty shorts!

August 19, 2009

Cute Shorts
On the 18th August, Michelle Obama and family went on Vacation, passing by the Grand Canyon………………it seems her shorts have caused quite a stir…
So bloody what! What is the big deal? Seriously? Leave her alone, her breasts were covered and her butt!
Why the big deal about her shorts?
Who was she harming?
She is showing the american nation that she is normal, a normal black woman who is married to a normal black man.
It didn’t cause a stir when she wore them walking her dog Bo……………. but on holiday with her family in the Grand Canyon it is a problem? Come on.

Doesnt she look fabulous!

Doesn't she look fabulous!
