Here are some posts from the blog-sphere that caught my eye today:
- Arab bloggers keep eye on governments – and each other .
Mona Eltahawy talks about what Arab bloggers are going through specifically in Egypt, Syria and Saudia Arabia. Pretty good article.
- Rated R- Some Don’t Like It Hot
Who would have thought that our Hareega is a feminist(ish)? Well he is in this post. I kinda agree with him on some level. And by the way, I think the outfit she chose doesn’t even fit her well.
- Quote of the day .
To sum it up “TV is Evil”.
- Jordan and the collapse of the “moderation axis” .
Khalaf Tells us in not so many words that no matter which side Jordan takes it gets screwed.
- How Much Do We Really Need?
Arabian Monkey tales tells us how less is more. She throws some good questions in there.
It is Friday and in the past 6 weeks I have worked more than I have worked in the past 6 months combined. Too much work, too many deadlines, too many people that are sucking me dry and last but not least, 15 more pounds YIKES. I am more stressed about the weight than I am stressed by the giving birth part. The baby is not even a pound , where the hell are those other 14 pounds at? My ASS most probably.
OMG you also won’t believe what happened to me. On Wednesday I got home at 6 pm and I checked our phone messages to find a message from my OB telling me to call them back not specifying why they want me to call them . As soon as I heard the message my heart was in my stomach and I started freaking out. And of course they close at 5 pm so I had to wait till the next day to call them.
Why is the doctors office telling me to call them back? I just had my ultra sound done and a blood test done to make sure everything is OK with the baby and the test results were in. The doctor NEVER calls unless there was something wrong. So due to my hormones and long day at work I started bawling. I thought the worst is going to happen.
I called them the next day and the MOFO’S told me that they had the ultra sound results and everything looks great and that the baby is actually bigger than they thought and gave me a new delivery date which is October 4th. I wanted to go in the phone and kill them because they scared me half to death. And I told her, man you scared the heck out of me when I got the message, she said it is standard procedure in their office to call regardless of the test result.
You should have TOLD ME THAT. MOFO’s.
