i'm in no hurry, you go run and tell your friends

my sister recently put up a facebook status congratulating me on getting darcy. only she worded it in a way that, well... had people congratulating me on being pregnant. except for most of my cousins who, as i just found out this morning, were just telling anyone with ears that i was expecting. (yay gossipy family?) anyway, i know that everyone wants me to have a baby (because it is obviously their business), but it's getting a little ridiculous how quickly they will jump to that conclusion. besides calling me pregnant (as if stating that i am will make it true), any time my sisters mention anything about me on facebook i start getting people congratulating me. even when the wording does not imply that i am. (for example, congratulating me on getting into the phd program was obviously code for having a baby. i mean, duh.)

and, i just have to say, that i am not the kind of person that will announce huge, life-changing events like that through my sisters' facebook statuses. and i can't really decide if the fact that they think i am is more insulting to me or them. on the one hand, i would like to think that i could find a classier way to announce things, maybe including lace and chocolate pearls, and i would like for them to think that, too. but on the other hand, do they really think that i care that little about them that i wouldn't tell them if i had news, and instead would let them find out through facebook? i mean, really.

in other news, i finished this year's nanovel the night before last. yes, once i crossed the fifty word mark i just rushed an ending along the lines of: ginny gets taken. ron erases lockhart's memory. harry fights a big snake and voldemort's memory. they are all okay, and gryffindor wins. the end. (not my plot, but you get the point.) and yes, that seems really weird after ninety some pages filled with word-padding sentences like "she said to him out loud, with her voice spoken loudly, as she looked over to her right because that's where he was standing and not on her left because there was no one on her left, there was just empty space, because he was standing to her right." but i figure if i ever want to go back to this one then i'll have the bare bones of the story and i can fatten it up with real sentences and plot points that don't consist of pages deciding whether the visiting uncle should sleep on the couch or take the brother's room. yeah, it's pretty bad, but at least i can say i wrote fifty thousand words in a month again.

    I actually did want to comment on did you find out that everyone in ksa was gossiping about you..and who thought you wete pregnant aside from noura, zizo, and mehaf?

  2. mehaf told me. and she didn't think i was pregnant, she was just asking if i was because she heard someone say it, and before she passed on the news she wanted to know if it was correct or not. (surprising kind of considering the people she grew up arouns.) and then ayat yelled at khadija (who heard from kholoud) and called her the biggest gossip of the family.
