Ever tried to stay awake for a couple of days? or maybe more? Can you really do that?!
But what if you got no other choice? Insomnia ladies and gents..

I have been suffering from insomnia and it is NOT fun at all ! Here's some info about it.

*Definition : Chronic inability to fall asleep or remain asleep for an adequate length of time.

*Insomnia can cause problems during the day, such as sleepiness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and irritability.
*Insomnia is not defined by the number of hours you sleep every night. The amount of sleep a person needs varies. While most people need between 7 and 8 hours of sleep a night, some people do well with less, and some need more.
*Insomnia can be treated by medications or good sleeping habits, but medication(sleeping pills) may become useless in a couple of weeks.
Here are some tips I got from a friend of mine called google:
*Try to go to sleep at the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning.
*Try not to take naps during the day because naps may make you less sleepy at night.
*Avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol late in the day.
*Get regular exercise. Try not to exercise close to bedtime because it may stimulate you and make it hard to fall asleep.
*Don't eat a heavy meal late in the day. A light snack before bedtime, however, may help you sleep.
*Make your sleeping place comfortable. Be sure that it is dark, quiet, and not too warm or too cold. If light is a problem, try a sleeping mask. If noise is a problem, try earplugs, a fan, or a "white noise" machine to cover up the sounds.
*Follow a routine to help relax and wind down before sleep, such as reading a book, reading Qur'an, or taking a bath.
*If you can't fall asleep and don't feel drowsy, get up and read or do something that is not overly stimulating until you feel sleepy.
*If you have trouble lying awake worrying about things, try making a to-do list before you go to bed. This may help you to "let go" of those worries overnight.
So ladies and gents, it IS something serious and it will ruin your day .. week and maybe month ! try to follow the above tips or go see a doctor.
Tell us your own sleeping habits too!

Sad, Sad Person.


MAN DATES GAL ON INTERNET FOR SIX MONTHS -- AND IT TURNS OUT SHE'S HIS MOTHER!
'She sent me poems she had written and told me about her dreams and desires'

By Grace Green

MARSEILLES, France -- Skirt-chasing playboy Daniel Anceneaux spent weeks talking with a sensual woman on the Internet before arranging a romantic rendezvous at a remote beach -- and discovering that his on-line sweetie of six months was his own mother!

"I walked out on that dark beach thinking I was going to hook up with the girl of my dreams," the rattled bachelor later admitted. "And there she was, wearing white shorts and a pink tank top, just like she'd said she would.

"But when I got close, she turned around -- and we both got the shock of our lives. I mean, I didn't know what to say. All I could think was, 'Oh my God! it's Mama!' "

But the worst was yet to come. Just as the mortified mother and son realized the error of their ways, a patrolman passed by and cited them for visiting a restricted beach after dark.

"Danny and I were so flustered, we blurted out the whole story to the cop," recalled matronly mom Nicole, 52. "The policeman wrote a report, a local TV station got hold of it -- and the next thing we knew, our picture and our story was all over the 6 o'clock news. "People started pointing and laughing at us on the street -- and they haven't stopped laughing since."

The girl-crazy X-ray technician said he began flirting with normally straitlaced Nicole -- who lives six miles away in a Marseilles suburb -- while scouring the Internet for young ladies to put a little pizzazz in his life.

"Mom called herself Sweet Juliette and I called myself The Prince of Pleasure, and unfortunately, neither one of us had any idea who the other was," said flabbergasted Daniel.

"The conversations even got a little racy a couple of times.

"But I really started to fall for her, because there seemed to be a sensitive side that you don't see in many girls.

"She sent me poems she had written and told me about her dreams and desires, and it was really very romantic.

"The truth is, I got to see a side of my mom I'd never seen before. I'm grateful for that."

When starry-eyed Daniel asked Sweet Juliette to send him a picture, Nicole e-mailed him a photo of a curvy, half-clad cutie she'd scanned from a men's magazine.

"The girl in the picture was so beautiful, I begged Juliette to meet me on the beach -- and Mom said yes," he recalled. "Mom says she was falling for me, too, and she just wanted to meet me, even though she knew I'd be disappointed when I saw her.

"As for me, I figured I was going to find the girl of my dreams.

"I guess that's about as wrong as I've ever been."

Daniel admits he and his mother could do little but stammer and stutter around each other for days after their cyberspace exploits came to light. And his father Paul -- Nicole's husband of 27 years -- wasn't too happy when the story hit the news and his beer-drinking buddies made him the butt of their jokes.

"Dad was ticked for a while and he forbid Mom to talk to anybody on the Internet ever again," said embarrassed Daniel.

Men! Hide Your Women! The Dykes on Bikes Are In Town!


SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Lesbian motorcycle enthusiasts in San Francisco have won their fight to trademark the name "Dykes on Bikes," a lawyer for their group said on Thursday.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office had denied applications by the San Francisco Women's Motorcycle Contingent to trademark "Dykes on Bikes," arguing the phrase would be perceived as disparaging to lesbians.

But the National Center for Lesbian Rights and the Brooke Oliver Law Group said the word "dyke" is no longer viewed as derogatory.

"Within the lesbian community that term has been reclaimed as a very positive term that denotes strength and pride and empowerment," said Shannon Minter, a lawyer for the National Center for Lesbian Rights.

The San Francisco Women's Motorcycle Contingent sought the trademark after a woman in Wisconsin not affiliated with group attempted to use the phrase for a clothing line.

I can hear the rumbling of the hogs already...or do they name their motorcycles "sows"?

Battles

To float within this barren void, naked and cold. So empty and devoid of all emotions. I welcome that emptiness, I look around me and see infinite nothingness. My only hope lies within that pinpoint light out there in the distance. With determination I fight my way through this viscous emptiness towards it.

Hope. That's what was left behind in the fabled Pandora's Box. All the sorrows visited upon this empty husk, sucking the energy ever so increasingly; lifeless.

Fighting one's own lifelong battles can bring down even the toughest of people. Yet those who put all their belief that there is hope, keep fighting. Promises easily said, can be easily broken. Yet promises given through the blood and tears, are indestructible. There are causes worth fighting for out there. One may not win the war, but may have one a battle. That alone is worth remembering.

These battles I will fight, even if I may not win the war.

Chaotic pt. 2

In my previous blog titled "Chaotic" I asked three simple yet complex questions.

When was the last time you took a good long look within yourself? Exploring oneself is worth the experience. In this society, knowing oneself is pretty important for survival. Most of you out there know what I'm talking about, if you don't know yourself...then this society can grind you down brutally. We live in a schizophrenic society.

Individualism is an important tenet in life, why follow all the codes set down by the majority? Why dress like someone on TV? Why walk and talk like some superstar basketball player? Trend setters aren't there forever...your OWN self is there for a lifetime. Look up the word "Individualism" and see if you can apply it's definition to yourself.

I was inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson, my favorite philosopher, to write this. I'd appreciate some more personal insights into this...are you an individualist?

Chaotic

How does it feel to be an outcast?

How does it feel to be misunderstood?


Ever asked yourself, "Who am I?"

CORRUPTION SETS FREE CON ARTIST!

Ladies and gents...in a previous article titled "Whodunit?" I mentioned about the Egyptian con artist who has conned women for their money; using promises of marriage. Also he has had sexual relationships with several and according to police reports, many pictures of his 'victims' have been found on his PC.

Guess what? He has been set free with no charges against him. Welcome to Kuwait, the land of WASTA and CORRUPT MINDS. This shows how people in this country flaunt thier power over the justice system for their own corrupt schemes.

Where are we heading? When the innocent are grounded face first into the dirt, while TRASH like that get to walk free? What happened to honor and integrity? What happened to HONESTY?

It's fucked up people like that con artist's friends who keep sinking our country lower and lower into despair. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION?

This has pissed me off to no end and why do I have a feeling I'm the only one raging against the corrupt system?

Anyway, here is the article in arabic posted in Al-Watan

If there was any decent support, there would've been a wide scale protest against such corrupt practices...petitions...and people yelling to be heard. Fuck the system.

AFRICAN TRIBE WORSHIPS SALMA HAYEK'S BREASTS!

Quote:
The Mandinka tribe of Gambia, Africa, adheres to a religious practice completely unique to its people -- they worship actress Salma Hayek's breasts!

While most primitive societies tend to pray to animal or ancestral spirits, or to stars and planets as the Mandinkans once did, that all changed in 1995.

Mandinkan farmer Danjuma Kianga remembers, through an interpreter, the moment it happened.

"As a special treat, Chief Tuamanguluka arranged for a movie to be shown here for the first time ever. The movie was Desperado, starring the blessed Salma Hayek as Carolina, a beautiful woman who works for the local drug lord."

When Hayek first appeared on screen, the Mandinkans were blown away by the sight of the 36C-25-37 actress. "Everyone gasped -- men, women, and children," recalls Kianga. "Salma was breathtakingly exquisite. She gave off a force, a light, an energy that came right through the screen and entered our very souls."

After that screening, all any of the Mandinkans could talk about was Salma Hayek -- her looks, her spirit, her energy.

I swear you just can't make this stuff up.

Jay: Thanks for the hilarious email! ;)

Whodunit?

This is quite an interesting article posted in the local papers. Now who's to blame? Let me know what you think of this fiasco which is a very common thing these days on the net.

Blackmailer arrested: Police have arrested an unidentified Egyptian fraudster for stealing money and blackmailing 50 Kuwaiti women, reports Al-Seyassah daily quoting a reliable security source. The same source said police began looking for the man — who spoke in a Kuwaiti dialect and claimed to belong to a wealthy Kuwaiti family — a Kuwaiti woman, whose identity has not been disclosed filed a complaint with the police accusing the man of promising to marry her. The woman said her ‘suitor’ claimed he was running short of money and asked to borrow KD 10,000. He also said all his money was invested in various business ventures. The victim said she took a bank loan and gave the money to the suspect. However, after receiving the money he disappeared. Intensive police investigation led securitymen to an outhouse (mulhaq) in Salmiya where the suspect was holed up.

It has been reported the suspect picked his victims from the Internet chat room and with his sweet talk promised to marry them. He also hired luxurious cars, took his dates to well-known restaurants, showered gifts on them and did the disappearing act after luring them to part with money. Police found on the suspect’s computer love messages, photographs of his victims and pledges written by his victims stating they had sex with him. When some of his victims discovered he was a fraudster, he threatened to blackmail them. One of the suspect’s victims is believed to be a 12-year-old girl, whose photograph was found on the suspect’s computer. During interrogation the suspect admitted to having sex with most of his victims. Police will summon the victims to identify the suspect from a legal lineup.

Talk about desperate women...
