My cable package now includes the FX channel which is about to show the new seasons of Dexter and NCIS. Woo-hoo!
Further on the trashy tv tip, We watched the first episode of Dirty, Sexy Money last night. It looks good and will probably fall into the category of “T.V I talk to my Mum about”.
Donald Sutherland plays one of the main characters in the above programme. The man is 72 and looks fantastic. I’ve googled ‘Donald Sutherland plastic surgery’ and nothing incriminating came up, so I will presume it’s natural. Time has given him such an interesting face. I’m tired of watching actresses whose faces don’t move. Such butchery makes me feel nauseous and sabotages any attempt at emoting.
Aging is an inevitable process, so I wish we could embrace it’s beauty rather then railing against it. Why fear getting older?
When asked if she was frightened about becoming 40, Elle MacPherson (yes, wisdom comes from all sources on this blog) stated, “Well the alternative is not turning 40 (i.e dying), and that’s far more frightening.” Indeed.
Sad news from the States, being nice about Muslims is not a vote winner – all candidates.
Gossip folks! No, this doesn’t involve any celebrities. To think, people see gossip as a female foible.
Help wanted – I want to add some items to my blog’s sidebar (new comments, recent posts, e.t.c). Anyone out there with WordPress savvy? Done! Jazak Allahu Khayran and hijab flutter to iMuslim
Finally, I wrote this as a comment on Umar Lee’s blog, but I wanted to repost it here:
What it comes down to is that the Ummah is flowing with haterade and we can see this oh so clearly on the Muslim blogosphere.
It takes many forms. Outright insults, to digs in the guise of piety or enjoying the good. Some people cannot praise anything, without first insulting something else.
I’m sure everyone here reading this, knows already knows that we are meant to make 70 excuses for our brothers and sisters.
Words have power and that includes the power to hurt.
Blog constructively people. If you have a problem with what someone has written, either email them so you can relay your concerns in private or when you write your comment take care to critique the words and not the person. Alternatively, let it go. Is it really that important?
Do not write a ton of insults, or just as bad, write a thinly veiled denunciation on your own blog which is obviously about them. The Islamiblogosphere is small and everyone will know who you are talking about.
I address this advice to myself before anyone else.
I’ve seen and read a lot of hurt feelings on the interwebs and so much of it comes down to people not extending each other basic courtesy. Be nice folks.
