It's only been two days after the start of my mid-year's break, and boredom is already invading my already tragic lifestyl. I realise that the more and more you plan ahead for something, it's more probable that something won't go as planned, Murphy was a moron, but he was right about this.
There was a plan that went back to September of the gang going to Dubai for mid-year's and that didn't work out. There was another plan that we go stay in a friend's farm for a couple of days right after the end of term-finals and I didn't go (Not feeling well, ok ?). There was a plan to go play football today, and my friend just called me and told me that the field we were to reserve is fully booked.
I get back to school on the 14th (or the 17th). That's a good two weeks away and I have absolutely nothing going on. I have an ongrowing book list , but I can't seem to get started with any of it. The only thing that I'm living on these days is a new series called Sleeper Cell. I. Here is a mini-synopsis off of Wikipedia
The writers gave up the classic stereotype of a terrorist as a Middle Eastern looking dark man and have presented a national mix in the "cell", Americans (including African Americans), Arabs, Frenchmen, among others.
I've watched 4 episodes so far out of 10 episodes from the first season. Michael Ealy's in it, so that's a plus. It discusses the lives of members of a terrorist Muslim cell that operates in America, the topic gripped me to see what kind of misconceptions would appear in it. There's a very nicely presented struggle in Ealy's character between his love for his faith and his love for his country. It was also quite unusual to integrate a gay Muslim Arab in the character of Salim. I've been watching it as soon as each download finishes, and I'll probably post something when I'm done watching it.
On other TV news, PRISON BREAK FANS REJOICE ! The winter premiere and the continuation of the second season from the hit show has aired ! I still haven't watched it yet, I'll hopefully will tonight if I can fit sometime to download it between Sleeper Cell's episodes and India Arie's albums.
Next ? Gaming ... Still waiting for the insane Wii prices to drop so I can get one, I haven't played it and I'm still very excited about it, until then, I've recharged the PSP and reloaded the games I never finished. Speaking of prices, does anybody have any idea how much a Zune costs here in Oman ? and where I can have a pre-purchase one-on-one with it ? I've been struck by the iPod curse, and I'm pretty sure this time it's really dead (It's been faking it since I got it).
Books, Music, Movies, TV and Games ... Yep, I think I'm covered for two weeks, that's if I remember doing any of those things. Know that saying, all good things come to an end ? ... What about bad things ? ..
