I did my first surgery in 2007!!!! to be exact... at 10:40ish am this morning... and then went to work! I have four stitches on my neck, on the side to be exact. NOTHING major though! I went to the doctor not knowing the exact procedure. I was laying down on my tummy and my head to the right, then they covered my head with a green garment that has a hole in it! I went EEEEK!! What is going on??? He was operating on the left side of my lower neck.. I heard him asking the nurse for scissors and blades and my eyes popped! WHATS GOING ON! Is it a good thing that sometimes doctors wont explain the procedure or what? I don't care.. he is an awesome doctor anyway...
Anyways... I ended up with four stitches :-) YES! I don't know why I am smiling. I kept remembering how happy Bart Simpson was when he had stitches and never knew why! I still don't know why! LOL! ITS INSANE I KNOW!!!
Happy New Year to my loyal readers :-)
My surgery wasnt major! They removed a black mole I had and loved!!! I went in, the area got cleansed, then it was numbed with anesthetic, afterwards he placed a green drape over my neck/face.... The mole was removed by excision and stitches. I was done after 20-25 minutes and four stitches ;-)

Mine? I will try to give in more to Karma to take its course and learn to rise above even more than I usually do!
Buddhism rocks... I like it as a philosophy and way of living! The teachings of it and understanding what it is about will definitely help improving the quality of life which will eventually lead us to live in harmony! Am I making sense?
I need some more me time... yeah I do spend me time now, but will definitely need more of that. I need to focus on myself... I need to believe that a small change in me is a good start and will make a difference... big or small... its still a good difference. I am sure there are more people thinking the same way :-)
All I need is to put in some time and effort to make it work, to make it happen. Its not easy but its doable! I will try not to treat wrong with wrong, but rather rise above!!! Specially when it conflicts with my beliefs.

What would you add to the list?
So at 5:50PM she arrived and I have picked out a purple cake (that was the Bree within me, because we have a purple lounge/room in our house and I like to coordinate colors and stuff...!!) but just in case she would not like it, I brought in some mini cakes from Opera (YUMMMMM) in other flavors heehee ;-)
At 6:00PM, Queenails staff came in. I tried "Her Majesty, the Queen" this time... another amazing experience... out of this world! I swear! I couldnt even go out for dinner with my friend because I was in a relaxed, stay at home, mood! heehee
I cant tell you how much I love their service :-) Those two hours of pampering were so worth it.. and my friend LOVED it too :-) YAAY

I went to the soft opening of MUNCH (The new deli restaurant) at Dar Al Awadi and had a blast! Axis of Evil were there for a quick walk in meet and greet. They are so fun to be around and so friendly!! I pumped into some good old friends, some co-workers, and my cousin joined it I had so much fun with her ;-)
Ohh and I had some pictures taken with the Axis of Evil people (YAAAAY). The food was great. I tried their cupcakes too, which were amazing! Loved it all. I will see if I can post some pics here ;-)
Too bad they are here for ONE night only for their comedy stand up, and all tickets are sold out already.... I heard they are selling them in the black market now for KD 60 (originally sold at AUK for KD 20)!!!
UPDATE: Two pictures were added, one with the cupcakes me and my cousin ate (obviously LOL) and the other are the Axis of Evil guys with Chef Al Sharhan (whos is an AMAZING cook) and some of the staff ;-) Enjoy!

Dont confuse the title with the video above...
I meant they are in Kuwait, and will be performing in AUK tomorrow night, but will have a meet and greet at Dar Al Awadi in the afternoon! COOL!
Maz Jobrani makes me laugh! heehee
Another remark I heard last week that I walk fast, oh and I walk like a horse heehee... not the way a horse walks but when they get their eyes sides covered so they can only look straight! heehee! I hardly make eye contact.. Specially in the elevator (well that to avoid the laughing in the elevator)
And guess what? A lady showed up at work asking for donation to this little girl suffering from Lukemia, keeping in mind that we are on the 20th floor and that we have seen this same lady more than three times for that exact same story in the past year or two! She would not care when anyone tell her that shes not allowed on the floor!
Oh thats just a random post... with me blabbering! Its SUNDAY! YAAAAY! Happy Week Everyone :-P

Benazir Bhutto 6%
Hillary Clinton 26%
Osama Bin Laden 6%
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad 0%
George W. Bush 40%
Dick Cheney 20%
BUT! Yes there is always a BUT.. some of my friends told me that they voted but did not show and/or their votes has been changed, as a matter of fact one of my friends voted Mahmoud Ahmadinejad but it doesn't show, so I dont know how accurate this poll is!
