I Refused To Do The Eid Blog Entry Because I Am Ill

Yes, I was and am still sick. There is this constant storm inside my head and I am coughing like a choo-choo train non stop these past few weeks. (please, say nothing about medicine or cough syrups)

So my Eid was irreplaceably ruined, but I felt nothing much. Visitors and relatives came and went. Lots of food and drinks were consumed, ya da ya da. That's what the Eid is for; a great time to meet relatives, forgive and forget, the mushy stuff, and most of the times the kids got some money out of everybody.

And I spent the entire time in my room, sleeping - it's hard to keep the storm at bay.   

Anyway, it's the 6th day of the Eid, school had started yesterday and only 49% of the students showed up. It's rather ok with me as nobody was in teaching / studying mood right after the Eid and I spent my time in class talking about the gruesome murders of the cosmetic millionaire and her three buddies a few days before the Eid. She and three other men were beaten to death, burned and then the ashes and bones thrown into a nearby river to destroy the evidence. It's all about greed and a lot of money here.... Tell me if you want to know more.

Anyway I had a couple of salmon blocks for lunch today. I bought from Tesco and before putting them into the oven, I smeared some mustard with honey and herbs and wrapped them up in aluminium foil. I prefer to to this with fish as the product will be the equivalent of a steamed dish. 20 minutes later in 180 degrees Celcius, with some Chinese fish soy sauce - it was a delight. I will do this more often :D

I went to visit my aunt, my mom's youngest sister a couple of hours ago. She is ill and currently cannot continue her work in the hospital as a staff nurse. We chatted a bit but most of the time we talked about a certain relative she wouldn't want to meet, even during the Eid. When an older relative decided to disown someone, she must have been a very very bad girl. In fact, she is and I also wouldn't want the same girl to visit my mom, her older aunt. But the damage was done, the disgraceful young female attended my house when I was out and about. Enough about that already...

On my way back, I stopped at a dvd shop and bought a dvd. 'Bathory'.... oi, wasn't Elizabeth Bathory the evil  noblewoman who drank and bathed in blood of virgins way back in old Europe? As I was pondering this, I hear a loud honking from the street behind me. A car was going AGAINST the one way traffic and was clearly rude about it. I heard the driver cussing and swearing at the rest of the drivers who tried to make way for him. I said it aloud in the middle of the dvd shop; "Stupid and arrogant. I wish you are dead."

The rest of patrons glanced at me and continued browsing.

I wish people would care a lot more....

I am looking forward to see a lot of blood in bathtubs tonight :v Or is it bathtubs of blood? :angel

Hope you feel better soon!

Haven't seen Bathory - let us know if it is worth watching...

Murders over make up? Sounds like a nasty business!

Rock Chef; Thanks :)
'Bathory' is an ok film, and I was rather impressed with the costumes and landscapes. In this movie; they were trying a new angle - Elizabeth Bathory was innocent.

The victim was a cosmetic empire millionaire, she was murdered for her money obviously.

So sorry to hear you have been ill and you did not get to participate in Eid. I like the concept of Eid and how people reach out to each other and forgive and forget. We should have that here and have it once a month. Hope you are totally recovered by now.

I looked up Eid and I now feel a little better having some idea of what the heck you are talking about. That said, I am still not going to feel sorry for you about being sick. Sick happens and besides you were able to head out to the DVD store, so how sick could you be? And besides you are guy and I wouldn't want to disgrace you by thinking you are a whoose or a girly-man. I am glad you are on the mend.
Now for that comment in the DVD store - if I had said that, my daughter would say - "filter dad!!! people are looking at us!"

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

TechnoBabe; I am still coughing on a regular basis. My fault anyway for failing to get treatment or medication. Yes, the world needs to have more forgiveness and tolerance.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Grayquill; Girly-man?! Ha ha ha! I was smiling to this. I go out to the dvd store to buy any movie to distract my evening hours. Glad you looked up about the Eid, some people just guessed about it :)
I am a teacher, I have every right to say my mind, anywhere :P
It's part of improving the mind of the society.
