how do you do when i'm not around?

i have had a killer headache since last night. it hit really bad out of nowhere and just won't. go. away. it's bad. like bad enough to keep waking me up at night. it's a strange mixture between throbbing headache and medicine head, though i don't have a cold and haven't taken any medicine. anyway, it's really starting to annoy me. i am not a happy camper.

moving on.

you know what i miss about my old house? my ability to people watch. i had some pretty interesting neighbors, from the couple that never took their child out of the house (though the mom would stand with her/him in front of the window occasionally) to the family that would form an assembly to bring their groceries one by one into their house. there was always something interesting going on right outside my window, even if it was just a congregation of squirrels or crows. here, i don't see anyone. it's like our apartment is in a little twilight zone of its own where no one exists besides us. i need to know what is happening in my [old] neighbors' lives. i'm just nosy like that.

also, i have taken to watching the food channel and travel channel all the time. i think i've watched more episodes of diners, drive-ins, and dives and man vs food in the past couple of weeks than most people watch in a lifetime. and all of those competitions like iron chef and chopped and whatever else. anyway, i watch them. all the time. and now they're infiltrating my dreams and i'm not sure how i feel about that. it's one thing when a book or movie will weasel its way into my subconscious, at least those actually have a plot. i don't remember much about my dream last night, but i can say pretty confidently that it wasn't the most thrilling dream i've ever had. though that could be because it was interrupted every three point seven seconds.

    nope...you still have months and months, actually make it years of catching up to do. Hisham and I are food network junkies. i LOVE chopped! i love everything, almost everything on that channel. gsn and food network.. :D

  2. i die for the food network. i love chopped, food network challenge, ace of cakes, and the next food network star. i watch it during Ramadan and it doesn't make me hungry, but helps pass the time quickly

  3. anonymous hippopotamus... yeah when i first started watching it you guys were the first people to pop into my mind. i remember you being obsessed with it.

    r... i have yet to watch food network star, but the rest are all awesome. and yeah i find it amazing that all of that food doesn't make me hungry when i'm fasting.
