No catchy title, it's hometime

MJ tagged me to do my favorite 25 movies of all time, and considering this blog hasnt had anything going for it in the last couple weeks, why not? The problem is it's really difficult to pick just 25 movies, considering hundreds, maybe even thousands of movies throughout my life. So these are in no particular order, cos you can't really compare comedy to an epic movie. Recently I've found my favorite movies are comedies, I'm not sure why. I think you can tell alot about someone by their choice of movie. Like this one girl I worked with called Mr. Bones 2, the funniest movie she has ever seen. I wrote her off immediately.

So without further ado:

  1. Jurassic Park
  2. Fight Club
  3. Shawshank Redemption
  4. LOTR: Return of the King
  5. Aladdin
  6. Finding Neverland
  7. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
  8. Memento
  9. Anchorman: Legend of Ron Burgundy
  10. Zoolander
  11. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
  12. Spiderman
  13. Monsters Inc.
  14. The Matrix
  15. The Departed
  16. Training Day
  17. LOTR: The Two Towers
  18. Little Miss Sunshine
  19. American History X
  20. Saving Private Ryan
  21. Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind
  22. Gladiator
  23. Brave Heart
  24. Boondock Saints
  25. Home Alone

I'm probably missing out some, I'll come back and comment if I remember more, and replace some.

I would tag Nooj and WIP but they might find this impossible considering how few movies they watch ;P So I'll just tag Trinity and Nafisa if they want it.

Till next time in Waseem world.

No Beyonce Listeners Tolerated

At this juncture in my life I can't really see myself getting married, let alone having kids. I have my moments of thinking it really is for me, and wondering what my kids would be like. I've even picked out names like most people have, even though the kids matched to those names may be restricted just to my imagination.

So given the above, I found it very difficult to come up with 10 things to impart on my unborn/imaginary kids. But a promise is a promise.

  1. Don't get into debt. If you can't afford it, don't buy it except for few notable exceptions like house or a car, but even then don't spend beyond your means.
  2. Noone is better than you, and you are better than noone.
  3. It is important to have dreams, but don't let those dreams cripple you from achieving other things.
  4. It is not in the end of the world to fail, neither is it the end of the world to not achieve your dreams.
  5. Don't resent your parents for things that they aren't able to provide you with.
  6. A person who has never read a proper book is a person with very narrow horizons.
  7. A real friend doesn't just tell you things you want to hear.
  8. Islam isn't a religion, it isn't something we have to do, it's a way of life that makes us better humans.
  9. Life isn't fair but you should look at people worse off than you when deciding what is fair and what isn't (Something I should practise before preaching.)
  10. If you listen to Beyonce, you will not live in my house.
I tag Azzy cos she's always got bags of advice and WIP cos she says noone tags her.

Till next time in Waseem world

Weird Mind of Waseem 3

Have you ever wondered about the people in traffic? Like that guy with the BMW Heaven-ZN, where is he going to? And why does he have to change lane every 20 meters? And that lady in the white Jeep, why does she have to hold up everyone just to let the entire next lane change lane(including BMW Heaven-ZN)? And how come the lane you change to automatically becomes the slower lane? Damn deceptive trucks.

Another thing is have you ever noticed when you stuck in traffic, when you eventually get to work, you're the only one who seems to be late?* Where do the rest of the traffic people go to? Don't they get to work late? I wonder if those traffic people really exist, and if their sole purpose is to cause traffic and make you late. Like if you watched Truman show, as soon as he wants to leave the 'city', everyone comes out to block his way and cause traffic.

Till next time in Waseem world.
