You Asked, I Answered

So, my lovely readers/lurkers/stalkers/friends, this is the moment you've all been waiting for.. The answers to your intruding questions and more questions. I answered each and every single one of them honestly and without holding back. (Thank you N. for the majority of questions :p)

And you know what? I discovered that behind this screen/blog, I'm not as shy as I am in real life. Does this mean I should wear a mask when I go out? Just a thought. Enjoy!

Chika: If you were invited to attend the bloggers meeting, knowing that females will be attending, will you show up?!

I want to meet my blogger friends, so I might. I don't mind if there are guys there either. Unless I decide to stay Anon, in which case I won't. But I will RSVP!

Hasan.b: Who will you vote for in the upcoming elections? The 4 people that you will vote for with their names please!

For now, I'm leaning towards:

Adel Al-Sarawi, Mohammed Al-Mulla, Naji Al-Abdulhadi, Ahmed Al-Mulaifi.

They're all subject to change, except for Al-Sarawi. He gets my vote definitely!

Peaceful Mind: How many times have you fallen in love?

Zero. Which is a bit sad really. But considering that I'm single, it's probably a good thing because I would have been heartbroken had I been in love. I don't believe in the saying "Its better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all" because I've seen friends who were in love and lost their mates, and they were crushed. It sucked big time. So none for me thanks. I DO want to be in love, but I want to be swept off my feet. Literally and metaphorically. Haven't met a person who did that.. yet..

N.: Where's the post about work? Is it so blah that it doesn't deserve a post?

It's coming up. I wrote it, I just always forget to publish it because something more important comes along.

Grey: Why the name 'this lady says'?

I dont know actually. Its the 2nd name I came up with. I can't remember the first name I came up with. 'This Lady Says' was befitting for me because I always have something to say, and because I'm a lady (I think?)..

N.: What's your type of guy?

GORGEOUS! Tall, dark hair, boyish features (no cutie baby or girly faced ones for me). NOT HAIRY. Ew. I dont care if he's thin or chubby, but NOT FAT. It's a matter of perspective, really. The guys I think are hot, are usually ones my friends think are not. So.. I don't know. I dont like huge noses. Crooked or imperfect is fine. Just not a big ass shnoz. And I don't like short or white guys either. I like my men to have a bit of color. No ghostly pale ones thankyouverymuch.(Sorry if I offended anyone)

N.: What is the worst thing that you've done?

I was a bully in Middle School, and probably during High School as well. I wasn't THE bully, but I did bully or make fun of some of the 'nerds' and 'weirdos' at school. And I remember really well that they didnt have any friends, and they always sat alone during lunch breaks. Whenever I remember some of the things I did, and whenever I remember those people, I feel like the worst creature on earth. I wrote about it, but I didnt publish the post. I dont know why.

N.: If social norms and such didn't hold you back, what would be the wildest thing you'd do?

Probably live abroad in a big glam city like New York or London. I would probably have a boy toy or live in boyfriend or some kind of "male" species lying around the house. I would live a jetsetter's life, assuming that I had the money. Hmm.. I dont know if that's wild enough, because I'm a pretty laid back person.

Shoush: Any love/crushes lately? If so, what's the story (in detail :P)?

I crush 600 times per minute. I forget a crush every time I find a new one. I wish I could say that one of them developed into love, but sadly no. I feel like a 12 year old because I still CANNOT get out of the crush phase DAMMIT! Why did you have to remind me??? (To know the types of guys I crush on, refer to N.'s 'type of guy' question above)

eshda3wa: Ever went on a blind date or met with a stranger?

I met with an Internet friend once when I was a teenager. She was really sweet and funny online, but in real life she was a bit weird and she knew a lot of guys - if you know what I mean. And she was not my type.

Dee: Out of curiosity, did you ever watch porn?

You said the magic word, curiosity. I'm not ashamed of saying yes I did, purely out of curiosity. And I was really young too! To say that it grossed/freaked me out would be an understatement. I also wondered why it was that only the women were fully nude, but the men weren't, their privates were always concealed. I still don't know why. I still get the odd funny/dirty email forwards from my funny/dirty friend, and I still freak out all the time. My (future) husband will have to deal with his wife's issues!

N.: Ever wanted to be a guy? if yes, then for what reason?

Yes. For all of the reasons possible. For a more elaborate intellectual answer, read here. And for all the obvious dirty/pervy reasons, read any guy's brain!

N.: Do you consider yourself normal?

Sometimes I think I'm the weirdest person in the world.. until I find someone who thinks the same way I do about a specific silly/weird topic. Then I think I'm not. But overall, I don't think I'm 'the norm' at all. I'm as different as they come.

Big Pearls: Have you ever been in love?

See above for answer.

Oranjina Fadidra: What's your deepest darkest secret that you always try to hide?

I actually don't have one. My life is an open book. I try to be secretive sometimes, but it just doesnt work! Maybe I dont have one because I never did something reaaaally bad either. I'm trying to remember but every secret of mine, there's at least one person that knows about it.

Oh, and if I had one, I would definitely not say it! There's always a chance of my 'identity' being found out..

Four Me: What is your biggest regret?

Oooh plenty! Mostly they're education choices, like "Why didn't I study at that college?" or "Why didn't I study that major instead of this one?".. Probably my biggest regret is being sort of a mean girl in school, and maybe turning down a few guys that could have been 'The One'. I don't know I'm trying to think about THE BIGGEST regret, but I'm not getting any.. Just a few small ones.

g and I: What's your favorite blog?

I'm being absolutely honest. My Blogging Familia (see right) are my favorites. I make it a point to read them before anything else. I didn't have a Blogroll before because I read so many blogs, but now I decided to add one that includes my top faves. The ones I always navigate to first and foremost, and the ones who have read my blog from the beginning..

marzouq: Have you ever flapped (slapped?) someone really really hard?

No. I have zero muscle strength, so even if I tried my hand would fall off. I might have slapped my bro when we used to fight during our pre-teen years but I can't remember.

zed: Are you making money from these ads?

Yes I am, but very very little. My ads are getting better thank God! I get some banks and Wataniya ads and other more appropriate ones than the "Online Dating Singles" ones. And you don't get a check until you reach $100, which I'm still not even close to. But anyway, it doesn't hurt to try! (Just in case I get kicked out of my job)

ms.d: What movie star do people say you resemble?

Angelina Jolie. LOL. I don't know I've been told I look like more than one actress/singer/etc, but I will refrain from saying just so you don't get any false images in your head (and no not all of them are hot). I will say that  I'm always told I resemble some of the more ethnic stars.

ms.d: Do you know how to draw/paint?

Yes I do, its one of my hobbies.

ms.d: Do you eat kidneys/livers/tongues?

Eew! NO. Never. I hate them. I tried but it tasted like blood, so NO.

ms.d: Are you an accountant?

NO. I hate accounting. I DO know how to manage my money, but I choose to spend it hahaha. No really, I do have some savings "7ag il yom il aswad" Hahaha. Translation: For the black day. If you need any help, seriously I can help.

And that's it! I had fun! Really I never knew an 'interview' could be this enjoyable. Sorry I had to make you wait, but I hope it's worth it. Cheers!
