it’s time for the perculator

08:14AM 

ok,it is time to write.i am negelecting everything over playing “starwars galaxies – am empire devided”.this game is such an addiction,i just can’t stop playing.

I WANT MY LIFE BACK! ha…

btw, has anyone ever neglected the real life over the computer life ?

inquiring mind would like to know
so whats been going on in zum’s world.a lot and then again nothing.my move was a big chaos ,fiasko.i am such an procrastinator,i pack my stuff an hour before i move.and then it takes me days to do finish up.everytime i move -it takes me atleast one week to get all my crap together,and once in a new place i decorate the place maybe 6 mos later.yah weird.thanks for the backporch storage room i have ,it’s packed with all my stuff.

i am really upset at the ‘harris teeter store chain’ – it is an better grocery store,whom send me coupons and free starshmucks coffee.anyway,last time i was there,i always grind my coffee freshly,some fuck before me must have had some “almond flavored coffee”-now my coffee tastes like freaqqin almonds.not even the freshly cinnamon i put in my coffee can take the almond flavour away.

i took the stray cat that was hanging around in my old apartment-i took him into an cat carrier into my car and brought him over here.let him sniff around in the new place,but then he wanted to go outside.soooo mr straycat *mr .man* – i named him that is one helluva housecat now!

my cats are slightly pissed ,specially ’slimm the siamese.well ‘mr man’ comes in every morning and loves me to death,he comes in ,eats,purr’s want to sit on my lap,and then he parks himself on the big chair and sleeps all day.

yea there is sme hissing going on,but i tell him not to do that in my house,and he is getting better at this.my,he is one smart feline,very respectfull of my furniture – unlike MY CATS.they are PUNKS!they already pissed on my new 2 chairs! i yelled at all of them,because i don’t know which one did it!
i am beginning to love ‘mr man’…

of course i am stil not working,but i added my finances up,and by the end of this month i have to be at some work/job.my rent i paid ahead for april,so it wont be due til the 1st of may.right now i am pretty much broke,my fridge is sort of empty.i don’t eat much, but bananas and drink nasty almond tasting coffee and smoke for three.

i am just enjoying to play my rpg game of starwars,to be what i can’t be in real life,and it so sucks you in.this is an world of it’s own.like thye matrix…it totally takes over you,and you can only play and play and play til exhaustion.i am an addict i admit.

i met lots of cool ppls on there as well,the europeans and canadians are the coolest.one guy is from austria,so i can speak bavarian with him-the dialects -bavarian and austrian are similar.and these people are just smarter than these american kiddos on there,whom are all “imperials”!
i think i have mentioned it before – i am a “rebel”.
i don’t work for ‘darth vader’ ,because he wants to destroy all us ‘rebels’.actually right now -rebels are stronger than imperials.or better yet in the majority.i wrote in my profile on starwars :

The reason i don’t like imperials is simple – they are all Republicans and use cheap TUSSY deodorant’s!

other than that life is life,passing me by somehow.because i am an pc gamer addict and don’t do anything else but just that.i don’t know how to snap out of it.and i cant imagine going to work and not playing this game as much as i am doing right now! i will have seizures!

anyhow,so much for zum’s life..nothing much happen’d.all stays the same…

this ‘700 club’, adela, nation of islam

08:51AM yesterday i had as few erans to run.i went to the unemployment office to get an huge print out of companys that are hiring in this region incl some job search sites.while i was sittign in there waiting for my turn to be called ,i have noticed an older muslim woman,who wore an hijab and matching dress.she looked poor,but in peace with herself.she noticed me too.my turn came and i went and talked to that lady there,whom was trying to tell me on how to use a computer for the “internet”.i politly interrupted her and told her that i have ‘access to the internet’..lol,poor thing.

anyways,once i left the building,this muslim lady was like right next to my car and made handsigns to get my attention.my first thought of me was like ‘oh no she needs a freaqqin ride’,so i hestitated at first,but then rolled down the passenger window,and she asked me in broken english (she saw my blue islamic prayer beads and the ‘all seeing blue eye’ hanging of my car backview mirror.’ sister could you please help me to give me a ride to the bustop.then i saw she had grocery bags,and she wasn’t that old but just looked old.so i said yes i give you a ride.i asked here where she was living at,and it was way out of my way,but i told ‘adela’ – i take you home.adela is from ‘yemen’,spoke lots of arabic to me,and to my surprise i understood so much.i couldn’t believe it!

and mashallah we had an conversation going.english and arabic,it sounded rather funny on my part i guess.the grocerys she had came from an nearby foodbank where she has gotten the food from.she told me she has 2 daughters,18 and 16,one is in college and the other one stil in highschool.he husband is in kenia/africa – and married to 2 other women.she was very proud to tell me that he had 2 other wifes and 6 kids with them.i smiled and told her i don’t think i would want to be a wife,and have 2 or 3 more more wifes running around.but she told me she taught these wifes everything and loves them very much.i smiled and thought to myself – it is a good system to those whom understand the culture.for the westerner it is hard to comprehend to live in such an arrangement.(well maybe mormons would understand,hehe)

i had some things to do,but in our convo while driving,it came out that adela was in need of an job.so i thought of this ‘greek restaurant’ i know off,but the owners are from lebanon and palestine.so i took her there.her english isn’t to well,so the son of the owner,her and me we talked.he spoke arabic too,to ME and of course adela.and i understood most of it again!he spoke an very clean arabic,not with an slang and very precise,not to fast either.he needed an cook,but adela asked if he serves ‘haram’ meat – which he does.and she asked if she could wear her hijab,and he said -no,she has to wear an lil hat,like an baseball hat.and jeans! well adela is a muslima,and she cant wear these things.but she was very nice to him regardless.then she asked if she could have a lil bit of food,because she has diabetes,and he said ‘look at the menue’ and order… now this is wrong!i said to him – i don’t think she has much money on her,so he just shook his head…like he was saying ‘oh well- no food then.this is so wrong.as arabic people he should have given her a bite to eat!

well,he said he doesn’t think she wold be ok for the kitchen,because she has to work very fast and that she can NOT sepak arabic in front of the american customers! what a dam sell-out!and adeal asked him if was muslim – and he said -NO,he is a christian,his whole family is christian,and i asked him if was american citizen and he nodded is head proudly.i told him – i would never become american citizen-because i will never place my hand to my heart and pledge the allgegiance to an flag.as a matter of fact – i wouldn’t put my hand on my heart for any piece of cloth! it is just wrong in my opinion .

i am an ‘alien with an greencard’ – which isn’t really green,but meaning i am a foreigner in this country and always will be!i careless tho.

so i took adela to another place,an guy from ’syria’ and his cook was ‘turkish’ – an restaurant that makes PIZZA’s!anyway’s we went there and he was really nice.some american stood there dumbfounded because they spoke arabic,and he wrote adela’s name in arabic on a lil paper and her phone number ,and come to find out – he needs someone who does prep cooking,like cutting veggies and meat.adela would be working in the back of the kitchen,the turkish guy also speaks a lil arabic,so adela will be able to understand the food orders.and hehe,she then said to me,go get some food ( i was hungry by then),and i looked at her in surprise,she snapped her fingers and said that allah has been good to her,because he brought ME along ,and i helped her to find an job and then she asked the guy for a bit food – and they fixed an whole pizza fresh for us.that was just really nice.and so we munched on this pizza.adela ate with her hands,incl the salad,which for westerners is ‘nasty’ but i know in morocco we do the same thing…or use bread to pick up the food pieces.so by today – she should have this job,because her daughter she sais would help her to fill out the application.

while we ate,there was this channel on with this so called ‘christian 700 club’! i wanted to throw a WMD at this guy who gave a speech on how JUSTIFIED it was to kill the hamas leader and that israel should disarm every palestinian and justt nuke the place!then some homeland propaganda bullshit.it made me so sick – if that fuck would be a christian wtf would he say something like that!!!i am going to write an email to this sickening tv channel and that old fuck whom is none but an infidel piece of shit!

i then took adela home.i had to leave,because i had to be somewhere at 2pm,but she invided me to come and she will cook for me. YAY,of course i will come and eat some  good ole arab homecooked meals,hehe.

after my 2 pm trip,i was on an intersection in an more black neighborhood.and i saw these “nation of islam guys” giving out their newspaper “the final call’ – to all the black people that xactlyck people’.he was totally surprised and had to search for an explantion and then told me,that he thinks the whites are evil and ill mannered.and i said;you are muslim,right?’ he nodded his head.so i said; doesn’t the koran teach you not to hate and judge people by color? he said ;yes BUT the white ppls and we african americans in the usa,slavery etc.so i interrupted him and said – stay on the islamic fact of this subject and not african american history of slavery.he then looked at me and said ;you are right; i and my brothers we have to learn to overlook color.exactly i said,because muslims come in all shape forms and skin colors.

but i couldn’t resist to tell him that minister farrakhan IMHO is an criminal whom helped to kill malcolm x,once he came back from mecca and saw the light that islam is an religion of alll races and colors.and once he changed his radical islamic point of views -he was murdered by the nation of islam,including back then the young ‘farrakhan’ whom created his leadership by pushing,killing malcolm x.the guy denied all of that.so i suggestes some readign material to him.

well i made my point to the guy,i always wanted to confront these guys,and he then thanked me for bringing this ’subject’ up to him and asked me if i see another ‘NOI brother’ to do the same,and ask HIM the same questions.

which i will do.
the end,

An Open Letter from Michael Moore to George “I’m a War President!” Bush

An Open Letter from Michael Moore to George “I’m a War President!” Bush 

Dear Mr. Bush,

Thank you for providing the illegible Xeroxed partial payroll sheets (or whatever they were) yesterday covering a few of your days in the National Guard. Now we know that, not only didn’t you complete your tour of duty, you were actually paid for work you never did. Did you cash those checks? Wouldn’t that be, um, illegal?

Watching the press aggressively demand the truth from your press secretary — and refusing to accept the deceit, the dodging, and the cover-up — was a sight to behold, something we really haven’t seen since you took office (to watch or listen to the entire press conference, or to read the full transcript, go here).

More than one reporter pointed out that those pieces of paper your press secretary waved at them yesterday mean nothing. Even if they aren’t forged documents, getting paid does not necessarily mean you showed up to do your duties. As retired Army Col. Dan Smith, a 26-year veteran, told the AP:

“Pay records don’t mean anything except that you’re in or you’re out,” said Smith. “It doesn’t necessarily reflect what duty you’ve actually performed because pay records simply record your unit of assignment and then all of your pay and benefits per pay period.”

Mr. Bush, this issue is not going to go away — and I think yesterday’s actions just dug you into a deeper hole. You’re probably wondering why the heck this story won’t just die. You probably thought that after I brought it up last month and then got slammed by Peter Jennings for uttering the “d” word, the whole matter would just disappear as fast as a bag of blow being thrown out the window of a speeding car on a deserted Maine highway.

But your “desertion” didn’t go away — and here’s the reason why. You have sent countless numbers of our sons and daughters in the National Guard to their deaths in the last 11 months. You did this while misleading their parents and the nation with bogus lies about weapons of mass destruction and scary phony Saddam ties to al Qaeda. You sent them off to a never-ending war so that your benefactors at Halliburton and the oil companies could line their pockets. And then you had the audacity to prance around in a soldier’s uniform on an aircraft carrier proclaiming “Mission Accomplished” — while the cameras from your re-election campaign ad agency rolled.

THAT is what makes this whole business of your being AWOL so despicable, and makes the grief-stricken relatives want to turn away from you in disgust. The reason your skipping-out on your enlistment didn’t matter in the 2000 election was because we were not at war. Being stuck in a deadly, daily quagmire now in 2004 makes your military history-fiction and your fly-boy costume VERY relevant.

You still have not answered the questions surrounding your National Guard “service.” Let me repeat them as simply as I can for you (all of them based on the investigative work of the Associated Press and the Boston Globe):

1. How were you able to jump ahead of 500 other applicants to get into the Texas Air National Guard, thus guaranteeing you would not have to go to Vietnam? What calls did your father (who was then a United States Congressman representing Texas) make on your behalf for you to get this assignment?

2. Why were you grounded (not allowed to fly) after you either failed your physical or failed to take it in July 1972? Was there a reason you were afraid to take the physical? Or, did you take it and not pass it? If so, why didn’t you pass it? Was it the urine test? The records show that, after the Guard spent years and lots of money training you to be a pilot, you never flew for the rest of your time in the Guard. Why?

3. Can you produce one person who can verify that he served with you in the Guard during the year that your Texas commanders said you did not show up? Why have you failed to bring forth anyone who served with you in the Guard while you were in Alabama? Why hasn’t ONE SINGLE PERSON come forward?

4. Can you tell us what you did when you claim to have shown up in Alabama for Guard duty? What were your duties? You were grounded, so what did they have you do instead?

5. Where are the sign-up sheets that would have your name and service number on them for each weekend you showed up? Aaron Brown on CNN told us how, when he was in the reserves, he had to sign in each time he reported, and his guest from the Washington Post said, that’s right, and there would be “four copies of that record” in the files of various agencies. Will you ask those agencies to release those records?

6. If you were in fact paid for that time when you apparently went AWOL, will you authorize the IRS to release your 1972-73 tax returns?

7. How did you get an honorable discharge? What strings were pulled? Who called who?

Look, I’m sorry to have put you through all this. I was just goofing around when I made that comment about wanting to see a debate between the general and the deserter. I had no idea that it would lead to this. And there you were, having to suffer through Tim Russert on Sunday, saying weird things like “I’m a war president!” I guess you believe that, or you want us to believe that. Americans have never voted out a Commander-in-Chief during a war. I guess that’s what you’re hoping for. You need the war.

But we don’t. And our troops in the National Guard don’t either. I know you see the writing on the wall, so why not come clean now? We are a forgiving people, and though you will not be returned to White House, you will find us grateful for a little bit of truth. Answer our questions, apologize to the nation, and bring our kids home.

Yours,

Michael Moore
