Little Houdini

When I bought our pet tortoise, it came with a little card with some information about the species and how to care for them.

Under traits, it said: “docile.”

Well, this little dude is everything but docile. Complete escape artist. He has ran away more times than I can count sine we got him like three months ago. As a matter of fact, I just came back from the backyard unsuccessfully looking for him.

I have fortified the backyard and closed every escape route I could think off. Still this dudes disappears almost every time we leave him in the yard unsupervised.

At least I was smart enough to write my phone number on a piece of tape and stick it to his back. Hopefully I’ll get a text and he will return home soon.

Not the way I wanna go

Funny thing is as soon as anyone shows the mildest sign of illness, everyone freaks out thinking COVID19!

Ok maybe my symptoms are not mild, I’ve been living in the toilet for the past seven hours, but I cannot laugh as this reminds me too much of Zombie movies. Any signs of being sick? They are turning into a Zombie. Shot in the head!

The ‘rona

Mind blowing how the world has changed so much in only a few months. I never though I’d go to the bank wearing a mask.

I wonder if my daughter’s generation is going to tell stories of the great 2020 pandemic to their grand children. But then, as young as she is, is she even going to remember any of it?

Fifty shades of brown

Wife and daughter are playing I spy with my little eye.

Wife: I spy with my little eye, something that’s brown!

Daughter: is it… daddy?!

Is it just me?

There is a global pandemic going on, and people still act like nothing is happening.

Is it just me or has the entire world or at least the USA has gone mad?

Why is the stock market still on the bull run? Why are real estate prices sky rocketing? Just a couple of weeks ago we offered %18 over the listed price of a house we liked, and we still did not get it! I mean let that sink in, highest unemployment rate in the history of the nation; we offered to pay an additional fifth over what the seller was asking, and someone still outbid us!

I really don’t understand what’s going on anymore. If I learned anything during my MBA, a crash is coming, and it’s not going to be pretty.

So for now children, hang on to your jobs, buckle down, and brace yourselves! Recession is coming.

Helly Luv

I admit I do not listen to Kurdish music too often. That being said, Helly Luv is one of the best Kurdish artists I have ever seen.

Revolution is probably one of the best pieces of modern-day Kurdish entertainment art ever created. It paints a clear picture of who us Kurds are, and the type of challenges we face back home. It seems her message is specially targeted towards the entire English speaking world and Kurds who grew up outside of Kurdistan.
