-Speaking of rage. If I’m not careful I’m going to turn into a Muslim version of Vanessa Williams’ character on “Ugly Betty.” Devious, the kind of woman you love to hate, fabulous but not a good way to be in the long run.
Sometimes I wish I could be sweet more than just some of the time…*does a cat hiss loudly*
-Just in case it slipped past you. Read this article about the $50 billion of bailout money going to employee bonuses. Can I get a bail out on my student loans? What about the sub prime lending victims who are losing their homes? If this isn’t injustice I don’t know what is…the rich get richer and the poor become jobless and eventually homeless. Allah save me us. Ameen.
-At work we played this game where we all submitted a little known fact about ourselves and then tried to guess which fact matched the participants. I pronounce myself the official winner! I admitted to them (and now to you) that I was once a contestant on MTV’s Singled Out. I think someone’s going to revoke my Viva La Feminista pass…(Don’t you go looking for archives now)!
-I have one more week before my temp assignment ends. I’ve been here two and a half months but it feels like a year. I’ll miss it mostly because I’ve gotten used to the routine. At the same time, I’m excited to begin my new position, insha’allah. It’ll be quite a switch to move from a prestigious business school to Adult Corrections.
-I am trying to create a Hijabi B-girl look for my days off. It doesn’t seem difficult to do on a budget. We’ll see what I come up with…
-Is it just me or did Seal do a fabulous job with this Sam Cooke song. Wow!
