The "Noor" craze is driving me crazy. I am sometimes forced to sit through it when we have friends over, so I would be surfing the net or do my nails... because I am enjoying the company, but not really into that show. Few nights back I was just sitting with friends and actually saw some clips of the show... its so damn slow, things that can be done in ONE episode of 24 is done in TWENTY-FOUR episode (if not more) in Noor! Its ridiculous! It got on my nerves... so I have only watched one WHOLE episode of the show, the one where Noor shot Whathisname several times, and he DID NOT DIE!!!! he was in a coma!
So last night, a friend came over and she was watching Noor with us. Given my previous history of mocking such shows and annoying the viewers -which I would hate to be in their shoes LOL- I started asking questions, stupid ones... not realizing how annoying or silly they were to my friend... Keep in mind that I used to mistake Noor for her sister in law (they kinda look alike to me!)
Ansam: So is that Mohanad's mom?
Farah: Yes (looking at me with a smile)
Ansam: But she just called Mohannad's grandpa "uncle"!!!!
Farah: Yeah he is his father's father... (still smiling but her eyes were looking directly at the TV screen)
Ansam: Oh I see
the show was still playing?
Ansam: Why are those two always in that same house? Are they related to them?
Farah: Noor brought them with her from the country... (almost a smile)
Ansam: For what?
Farah: They live with them and help them.... (this point she wasnt smiling)
Ansam: My God! How many people live in that same house? The whole extended family
On another clip....
Ansam: Noor just said she is going to visit Noor???? HOW??
Farah: No its a baby girl named after her
Ansam: Ahhhh... ok!!! hmmm
Then another couples were talking
Ansam: Are they related to Noor/Mohannad?
Farah: Yeah they are cousins
Ansam: So everyone is living in that ONE BIG house... how come those two live alone?
Farah: The husband wanted to move out... he is independent!
Ansam: You know what? I better go sleep, I am just annoying you with my questions
...... and no one said anything like, "No its ok! you can stay! watch it with us!!!"
On another note, I was having Raspberry Frappaccino and sipped way too much on one go I got a brain freeze X-(
It was too windy when I left work around 4:30PM today, I swallowed so much dust... I am glad I was holding on to my skirt, although I am sure I looked funny, just to end it with my friend/coworker driving by me as I was walking and making silly faces
