Super glue !!! did u get high :))

Shurouq said...

Lol Nazzal
7aram 3aleik.. Do I look like a super glue junky to you?

Jelly Belly said...

I have to admit Shurouq the super glue made me laugh too ;)

oh driving to Bahrain...wansa road trip...I wanna tag along...I wish they'll build a bridge between Kuwait and Bahrain and we don't have to go through Saudi (since women can't drive) but I don't think ahal AlBa7rain would be so thrilled with the idea...they are still suffering from jesir almalik Fahad.
ok I went way off topic (as usual) bas I loved your answers ;)

kwtia said...

It's great when your morning read makes you laugh, thanks Shurouq..
And Wannus, nice choice..I've been wanting to read that one, I've only read his plays so far..Do you have a favourite of the stories in the collection?

Papillona ® said...

"How tall are you: Leish el i7raj? I'm 5.1 - 4.2 when it's really cold"

nazzal said...

Shurouq said...

Jelly bint Belly,
Where have you been?
You've been missed :*

The second part of the book is my favorite.. It includes three short stories I think.
And you're welcome, babe :*

Sarah and Sponty,
Ee.. laugh it out, girls. I bet you're one of them tall creatures who find pleasure in other people's agony :'(

Now Nazzal and Jelly..
About the super glue, I knew this answer will backfire somehow..
Damn you, people!

Papillona ® said...

7ayateee!! lol shurouq you're lucky. To you all guys are taller which is a great feeling.

Luckybellybuddha said...

very, very, very cute post.. couldn't stop smiling (& laughing @ one point) while reading.. chin chin.
Oh & the shrinkage bit beats alllllll. :-)

Jewaira said...

Can I call that number? :)

kwtia said...

What's the recurring dream?
If you don't mind me askin' that is..

bo_ghazi said...

I bet everyone called that number you've typed... I didn't........ ok, maybe i did...... maybe.. im not sure :p

Shurouq said...

How many times do I have to tell you Size Doesn't Matter :P

:) Mistletoe,
I'm curious, which part got you laughing?

Hehe Jewaira,
Be my guest :)

It's nighttime and I go for a swim wearing only a watch (ahem)
Water turns warm, thick, and gooey.. like oil.. So I can't swim back to shore.. I'm stuck there
:) That's it.. then I'd wake up

It's not scary or anything..
Oh and I don't wear watches in real life.

Bo Ghazi,
Don't you dare dial that number!
You've been warned :P

Luckybellybuddha said...

.. يااااا آآآآ آآآآ ..
LOL :-)

Luckybellybuddha said...

& I just read khalid's article Shurouq.
first he tries to precariously justify the act of donating so not to upset his likes, then he emphasizes that one should not give much… speechless.
I think one of the guys he consulted should've also taught him the do3a'a of (allahum la taj3al 7ajti 3and bakheel).

Ms.Baker said...

Loved your answers Shurouq :)

I also have Joss Stone and Gorillaz in mine too.

MsB, who loves cheese (and makes) breadsticks too...

Babbler said...

I like the temperature-regulated height, I think you should be proud as you have special paranormal qualities :D

and the random lyric, is really random. It cracked me up!

btw, can someone give me a good breadstick recipe please?

A3sab said...

I'm so tempted to call the number!!!

AyyA said...

Funny that you mention that heaven and hell are a state of mind, because that’s what I believe as well, and you know what? I also believe that heaven and hell start by working on your mind right here in this lifetime.
No wonder I have this thing for you ya 3asal ;)

kwtia said...

I kinda like that dream..nice and odd.. :)

Eve said...

A couple of seconds after starting reading, I broke a nail!!
wa7yatek Shurouq, next time, write something like "I ate a chocolate cake, I met the man of my dreams etc.." :p

Brava Valentia said...

Shurouq said...

You should hear me sing it live.. I kill me

:) MsBaker,
I have to try your breadsticks someday..

I can't cook lil'asaf, but I'm sure MsBaker and Hanan can help you :)

Call it, end the mystery :)

It's mutual, babe :*

I kinda like it too, but it gets irritating at times

LOL Eve,
Sorry.. it'll grow

:) Mother Courage,
Shocking you was not intended.. I apologize
