Something to consider:

Getting my money back

Posted in Iramville at 12:41 am by Iram

I went to the Office of Student Activities today to get reimbursements for all of the money I spent on behalf of the MSA during Ramadan. I had about 8 receipts, and three of them were credit card receipts, meaning that they were from those detached credit card machines that are not hooked up to the cash register so they don’t actually show all of the items I purchased, only the total. The other five receipts were fine, but the office couldn’t accept my three credit card receipts because they need to see the itemized list of everything I spent money on. Why, I ask? Because they want to make sure they’re not reimbursing me for alcohol….for the MUSLIM Student’s Association.

But it gets better. One of these credit card receipts is from a place called Hot Breads, and I got an itemized invoice from them so that I can retry to get my money back. I had purchased cake from this store, and the invoice lists all of the different flavors of cake I had selected, one of which was called “Irish Coffee”. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Irish Coffee an alcoholic beverage? So isn’t my itemized list more incriminating than my credit card receipt?

In trouble

Posted in Iramville at 11:50 pm by Iram

I have managed to get myself into trouble again. This is the last week of class, and I have to write a ten page paper, a thirty page paper, two five page papers, and take three exams. How do I get myself into messes like this??? If anybody sees me walking around aimlessly in a zombie-like state, this is why.

After Thanksgiving Sales

Posted in Iramville at 3:54 am by Iram

After wasting more than half of my day standing in lines at stores that have run out of just about everything that made me want to wake up early in the morning anyway, I have decided that we need a new bill to be proposed to Congress: The No Shopper Left Behind Act.

In the process of talking about Disney movies, I said to my friend:

“I also have a copy of Pokeahotass”

Oops….

What not to do on Thanksgiving

Posted in Iramville at 1:19 am by Iram

When baking rolls, make sure they don’t touch the element at the top of the oven. It creates a very unpleasant smell, which is then quite difficult to get rid of before the guests start to arrive.

The Age of Reason

Posted in Randumb at 7:51 am by Iram

You will do me the justice to remember, that I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies to another this right, makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.

Fruit snacks…

Posted in Randumb at 3:34 pm by Iram

After spending my entire night staring at differential equations in preparation of the big exam, I am now staring at the empty box of Care Bears shaped fruit snacks on my bed. Did I actually finish that entire box in one night? I must admit, fruit snacks are an amazing study tool, especially when you’re running on minimal sleep. They’re pure sugar, which goes straight to your brain and wakes it up without the addictiveness of caffeine. There’s only one problem: I think my tongue has turned permanently blue.

I want a voodoo globe so that I can make the world spin around really fast and freak everybody out.
