me and my big mouth!

Sky had a really nice post about herself a couple of days ago. I told her that her post was so nice, it should be a tag... Doh!

So, as a punishment, I was the first to be tagged by Sky. I do apologize in advance for all those who will be tormented by this massive wave of TMI* attack!

Here it goes

I am not: getting enough sleep these days
I love: my 8 weeks old babygirl... and my wife too ;)
I hate: having to be nice to people I don't like/respect
I fear: that one day I might do something I regret to a
I hope: I will make my parents proud
I hear: too much noise caused by the neighbors upstairs
I crave: good restaurants
I regret: leaving Kuwait ... sometimes
I cry: in my dreams
I care: for what people may think, can't help it
I always: thank God
I feel alone: on business trips
I listen: more than I talk
I hide: that annoying Ketchup stain on the floor when the boss drops by my office
I drive: at least 4hrs a day
I dance: dabkeh, salsa and the 'El Lemby' dance

I write: for a living
I act: really funny in weddings
I miss: my parents
I learn: a new thing everyday, I think
I feel: sleepy
I know: too little
I sleep: less than I am supposed to be
I wonder: what's tomorrow is gonna be like
I want: to get a new car
I worry: when I drive in dubai streets with my baby in the back seat
I have: to get a new car
I fight: the temptation to keep my mouth shut when I see/hear something that's not right
I need: a new car
I am: a what you see is what you get kindda person
I think: no one deservs to be tagged :)

*TMI: too much information


  • And to think you are the sole reason behind this massive wave of TMI attack!

    Get a new car already! What's it gonna be?

  • I am looking... can't find one I completely like.

    I am open for suggestions :)

    By Blogger moryarti, at April 8, 2006 at 2:51 PM  

  • Any specific requirements?
    Other than that, whatcha ya like and how much ya got?

  • very smart not to tag people.. i can remember the last time all so very well... mind u it was fun though :)

    By Blogger BuJ, at April 8, 2006 at 6:33 PM  

  • about the car.. are u torn between 2 or 3 cars or u seriously dunno where to start?

    By Blogger BuJ, at April 8, 2006 at 6:34 PM  

  • Marwan .. I am indecisive between giving my existing car a makeover or getting a brand new one…

    I saw the Infiniti FX 35 - very nice min outside but the interior was very poor - no value for money what so ever…

    I also liked the new Charger R/T HEMI - monster engine with a really aggro look. Yet, i was worried about fuel consumption with my daily trip to DIC. Also, it was quite plain from inside.

    The only car that truly took my breath away with its character, style and its heaps of features and options was the new BMW 5 Series… but then you have the $ factor :)

  • I know I asked, but I have no idea about cars. Except the BMW 645, which I am absolutely in love with. It's a good thing I don't drive, otherwise I'd be broke.

    How about you get the Pimp My Ride guys to make over your current car?
    I'd love to see X-zibit in the UAE.

    By Blogger sky, at April 8, 2006 at 11:56 PM  

  • A close friend of mine has an M6 - which is a pimped up version of the 645 .. its one of very few in the UAE ... very yummy :P~~~

    oh and btw... he is available ;)

  • Being a petrolhead, it is my sworn duty to help a brother out.

    If you're even a little bit gadgety, buy one of the new BMWs because they are fiddly fun. But they're not cheap, expensive to insure and here's another thing - since the nose is aluminium, even a small accident may be enough to write off the car.

    Infiniti is a good car in my opinion, quick and a good handler, but will depreciate like a rock. Also, the brand does not have the cachet of Lexus.

    Mori, you must be psychic..I'm selling my prado to buy a Charger! The interior is plain, but it IS an E-Class underneath and the engine makes up for a lot. It'll do about 25mpg tops, so not a very cheap car, but style yaney...How much is it retailing for now?

    Merc CLS if you really want everything.

  • He's available with a car like that? How did the status-hungry women of the UAE not get to him yet?!


    I'm sure that car is yummy. I literally stand there and drool when I see one.

  • Moryarti,

    Nice post!

    ok now on to the cars:

    The Charger R/T HEMI is awesome, monster of a car.

    The Infiniti FX 35 is still nice, you've seemed to cross that out.

    What about the Infiniti G35?

    ahh but the gas problem...But hey its not as bad as it is in the states.

    (hah sorry, i always compare, but that wouldn't really help you)

  • I'd go with the helicopter;
    just think about no traffic at all (:

    By Blogger samuraisam, at April 9, 2006 at 12:50 PM  

  • its good to know more about you. and about the car i love lexus, its so smooth ! you could get the LX, its more like a family car.

    By Blogger Brava Valentia, at April 9, 2006 at 1:08 PM  

  • Sam - you wanna bet that even with a chopper, you will end up with someone tailgating you in the sky :P

    Mother courage - my wife drives an RX 330... it is a pleasure to drive with the navigation, rear view camera…etc.. the car is truly amazing

    By Blogger moryarti, at April 9, 2006 at 2:53 PM  

  • I heard available? :D

    Nice post btw, and would have loved to see people being tortured when tagged. :)

    I know absolutely nothing about cars, there got wheels and my try to drive was sad, brother said I 'failed with honor'

    I don't get it why they don't make the steering wheel like the ones in the games, when you turn it 30 degrees the car turn 3o degrees instead of turning the steering wheel over and over. bah.

    By Blogger MJ, at April 9, 2006 at 3:37 PM  

  • mj, you driving a trailer by any chance?

    moryarti, why not buy the ford explorer 2006, you can stuff your old car in it as well :)

    By Blogger archer14, at April 11, 2006 at 10:41 AM  

  • There is only one car, only one 4x4 for the UAE. Toyota Landcruiser, white.

    End of story, end of debate.

    Next subject Dr?

  • I'm a big BMW fan (although my taste in cars is not as expensive as Sky's).

    Nice post though. Who knows, maybe this whole tag-TMI thing will end up helping you make up your mind about the car :)

    By Blogger Dubai Sunshine, at April 11, 2006 at 11:15 PM  

  • the only thing that will help him make up his mind, is if i agree on the car and test drive it myself.....mwaaahahahahah (evil laugh)

    U know just in case one day my lovely car is in the service, i need to have back up!! ans i surely wont be seen in a charger or a white cruiser (although i like them)..

    Umm honey, a BMW 645, or my dream car (bentley continental GT, or the range rover sports edition)... hehehe if we wanted to buy the above we would go broke for like 3 years...

    Morayrti: u know u can always borrow my car to cruise to work!!

  • nice post, i want to buy a car too, provided i sign legal documents for my father that says that i'm going to stop being a :P

    ok i have a lexus, so i suggest go for a lexus. im not sure why but i dont like the RX too much. my brother has the 2006 GS430 and i love it! it's beautifullll (with 100% tints, it kicks ass) :P

    lexus orrrr...i'm (also) in love with BMW645... *drool* i dont like mercs too much but the CLS is one car i love. again. two other choices? ferrari or bentley. so in love with these cars, it's not even funny.

    let us know what u eventually decide.

    By Blogger MD, at April 12, 2006 at 4:22 PM  

  • Thanks ya MD - as a matter of fact, i went to see the GS 430, its almost the same price of a BMW 530i but with much more features. And yes, the value is unbeatable... bas yakhi el wa7ed ykhaf min 3yoon el nas - ethneen brand new luxes ma yestewi ... :)

  • Hi Doonie..

    Thanks for dropping by ..

    My doughter is almost 1 year old now.. and she is driving me nuts with her googli-gla-bla-bla talk :)

    That post was made in April.. too months after that i was on my way to the showroom to get the 5 series, but my wife thought a 645 is nicer... And no one would want to disagree with the lady of the house ... so i bought one.
