Mahmood’s Den Scapegoat of the Moment > Jasra Jedi

21 Feb, '05

Once again I’ll be on my travels, this time to Germany to attend the Nordic Ski World Championships on a quick consultancy job.

I’ll be back on Feb 26. I’ll be celebrating my birthday in the snow!! They tell me the temperature is about MINUS 20, and it’s been PLUS 30 here at noon!

In the mean time, as is customary in these here parts, it’s time to declare the MtvSM:

Jasra Jedi

Blame ANYTHING that happens to you personally, or at large in the world on her. She’s the cause of every ill that befalls you and the world until Feb 26th, 6AM, when I come back.

    JJ,

    It is your fault for the $&%^ ing snow that keeps falling here. DAMN YOU!!! Have you no RESPECT for the climate?

    It is also YOUR fault the ROSE cuttings I sent to Mahmood haven’t arrived. DAMN YOU AGAIN!!!!

    BAD JEDI you are. May the fleas of a thousand camels rest in your bed!!!!

    Mark,

    At least you got snow! We were promised 4 inches but instead as Jasra Jedi was so lax about the weather,

    The skies over Washington FARTED nary a dusting.

  3. salima44 says:

    Mahmood’s Den Scapegoat of the Moment

    That sounds like Jasra to me. Say one thing and do another. Problem is YOU wanted the snow and we didn’t. Just like a women to do these things…. Not Jedi like at all.. Sith is more like it. Bad Jedi.. BAD….

    Hmm.

    Just like you men to complain. you ask for snow – you get snow – and then you blame me becuase you never specificed where u wanted the friggin snow to fall in the first place. you should actually just be grateful and thankful that you have the ability to log on to a computer and complain about the weather. there are gzillions of people on this earth who dont have the luxury ..

    Take you medicine like the woman you are JASRA. Everything is YOUR fault till the Mahmoodski graces us with his return and lets you off the hook. Me and Steve took our medicine like MEN and now it is YOUR TURN. I took the blame for killing SUPERMAN for crying out loud.

    BTW it is YOUR fault there are gzillions of people on this earth who dont have the luxury to surf the web.

    Now what are you going to do about it???????????????????

    They say Mauna Loa is going to erupt here in the next year so I might as well blame you now and get it out of the way.

    Your still in denial aren’t you? By by the way Jasra the correct spelling is ALGORE (one word) Not Al Gore.

    It is still your fault that AL”internet”GORE, Howard “Scream” Dean and John “ketchup” Kerry Heinz self destructed and imploded on themselves.

    Mahmood, enjoy your stay in Germany and stay warm!

    But it’s a shame you’re leaving just when the weather here has become perrrrfect (cheers JJ)

    Slipped on the ice, and landed on me Tararaboomdieay in front of the neighbours….

    Then the British Govt added a few hundred items to the list of poisonous foods we’ve all got in our blimmin freezers. Reckon I will be living on fish fingers and chip sandwiches for the next few months, by which time I will probably outweigh Mahmood.

    Wind’s coming in from the East now, instead of the North. That means we are swapping Artic weather for Siberian weather (yes, it really does sweep all the way across Europe).

    Jas, until Mahmood absconded and left you in charge, we hadn’t even had any snow at all on the East coast of England. Is this our punishment for banning foxhunting or something? I am beginning to wonder whether you are, in truth, a rather clever little foxhound with a laptop and a rather feisty attitude…..

    Meggie… the snow’s been wonderful in London.. 🙂 (cuz u enjoy the beauty of it falling, but it doesn’t actually amount to anything on the ground, hence no major travel problems)

    hehhehe it’s funny seeing all the new int’l students in awe (for some it’s the first time).
    personally i’d rather have snow than rain… enjoy it while it lasts….

    have a good trip Mahmooood! 🙂

    Mahmood’s Den Scapegoat of the Moment

    Well Reem, up here in Northumberland it amounts to something on the ground, in this case, me flat out on the ground.
    It all reminds me of an episode some time ago, when our R&D facility was host to a group of trainee engineers from Libya. While they were with us, it began to rain. They all, to a man, rushed out the front door to get soaked, and have their photographs taken with water dripping down their faces. They were dancing in it! We were peering at them from the shelter of the office, shouting through the window “Come back in, you’ll catch pneumonia!”.

    Then, there was a rainbow. We never got ’em back in to the office that day….

    And we never saw them back in the office the next day either. Someone at their hotel showed them a brochure about Lindisfarne, and the Farne Island wildlife sanctuaries. So they went there for the day instead. Puffins, seals, cream teas….

    Day after that, they went shopping in the metro centre, to buy presents.

    In short, we never saw them again. We don’t even know if they ever went home to Libya. For all we know, they are still here. Maybe they went out foxhunting yesterday, just for a laugh….

    Steve ”

    I suggest your contracting office negotiate a better contract next time. In the government agency I work for all contractors get the Federal Holidays off. Maybe you will get luck and get a real government job. Good luck.

    I am surprised you dont work with lots of Muslims. In the government agency I work for, the percentage of Muslim workers is about 15-20% and the percentage of foreign born workers is about 50%.

    Re: Mahmood’s Den Scapegoat of the Moment

    Always an excuse, eh, Jasra. The Father Of My Nation, General & President George Washington, is lying DEAD in his grave and all you have to offer are excuses. That doesn’t make him any less dead now, does it? And you freely admit you did JFK, too! Where does it end, Jasra? Where? What about McKinley? Did you do him in, too? Perhaps we are but glimpsing the edge of a vast Jasranian conspiracy.

    Now I read that the ice in the arctic is thinning and the glaciers are petering out. Didja think we wouldn’t notice that? Didja really think we wouldn’t figure out who did it, MISS JASRA JEDI THE GLACIER KILLER!

    J’accuse!

    Re(3): Mahmood’s Den Scapegoat of the Moment

    The gummint and my company have different sets of holidays that don’t quite match. There’s always one or two federal holidays my company doesn’t match each year. It’s not so bad. It breaks things up a little and gets me out of the same office.

    I certainly hope I never get a real government job. Once I train up here, I’m headed back to the commercial world where they have bigger paychecks, nicer offices, and prettier girls.

    That sounds like about the same composition of people here. There’s a few Muslims wandering around the office here. There’s a guy from Somalia I work with who’s probably Muslim but then again I’m thinking his girlfriend is his real religion because he seems to be on his cell phone talking to her all the time.

    I think you just work for the wrong people. I have a huge office, a great paycheck, and the women here are just great, although as a good Muslim I always keep my eyes averted so I hardly notice. Job security is the big reason people work for the government.

  20. [deleted]0.95776700 1099323586.392 says:

    Re(5): Mahmood’s Den Scapegoat of the Moment

    It’s a matter of perception, I suppose. You have more job security working as a government employee but that translates somehow into a duller workplace. In the commercial world, any day you go in to work the big trap door under your desk can spring open and send you tumbling down the chute into the street with all your dazed friends. So it’s more exciting but higher risk.

    A lot of us computer geeks were flying high in Texas in the back half of the 1990s before the dotcom bubble popped and the job market cratered. Most of us took a hit in pay. Moving to Washington is another hit in pay, it being a much more expensive town than Dallas. I seem to have enough money to buy Big Fun Toys, but it still seems like I’m working at a discount compared to the go-go years not so long ago. The market price of labor affects you more directly in the commercial world. No matter how much you make, you’re not happy if it is less than before.

    The only real job security you have in the commercial world is your marketable job skills. I much prefer promoting myself by developing new skills than depending on the judgement of some bureaucrat to promote me. That way you can deal with your boss from a position of strength, which makes for more cordial relations.

    Washington, DC is no place for girl-watching. It’s Mutt City. There are pockets of pretty girls here and there but in the main it offers little inspiration to the single man. It’s like they passed some sort of law forbidding hot chicks from entering the city limits. I blame Clinton.

    You need to go to North Dallas to see swarms of pretty girls dressed up and made up. It’s like the prettiest girl from every tiny town in Texas got on the bus to Dallas. The center of the Pretty Girl Universe is at La Madeleine’s cafe in North Park Mall in Dallas where you can enjoy an ice tea and see a model pretty girl go by at least once per minute.

    Steve writes “It’s a matter of perception, I suppose. You have more job security working as a government employee but that translates somehow into a duller workplace.”

    My workplace is anything but dull. Things are always exciting here and we are on the cutting edge of everything. Again, guess it depends on where you work.

    Steve writes “Washington, DC is no place for girl-watching. It’s Mutt City. There are pockets of pretty girls here and there but in the main it offers little inspiration to the single man. It’s like they passed some sort of law forbidding hot chicks from entering the city limits. I blame Clinton. ”

    I guess it depends on what you like. I prefer ethnic girls, so I think the DC area is the best. I couldnt see the same types and amounts of women anywhere in the USA outside of this area.

    See, personal preference again. I would find that all rather boring. I would much rather look at a nice Indian, Ethiopian or Arab girl than the “typical” American girl. But I guess that is how my whole life is, I dont like following the norms. What is typical anymore is disappearing, which is a good thing for all involved.

    JJ – are you in your mid-40’s by any chance? Or probably late 30’s. I enjoy the company of mature women & marilyn manson. My performance, depends again what you’d be referring to, is bleak. I’m hoping you could tweak that up for me. And, how dare you say, that men have small brains: “Eve was created from Adam, likewise, woman came from man & man came from a dog or an ape. An ape or a dog came from dust. 😀

    I went to feed some walnuts to the squirrels outside my home AND THEY WERE GONE! Jasra scared them away! I looked around the corner, up in the trees, behind the bushes, everywhere. I think Jasra took them and DID SOMETHING to them.

    I was expecting a snow day today, maybe three inches of snow which would have stopped Washington dead, prompting my boss to call me to stay home. Last night’s weather report promised terrible weather and worse commuting but when I awoke IT WAS SUNNY AND THE FREEWAY WAS BONE DRY! I had no trouble driving to work, dammit.

    I was all set to celebrate President George Washington’s birthday today when I open the paper this morning and read with horror THAT HE’S DEAD! Jasra did him in. What the heck am I supposed to do with this birthday cake now, huh? Huh? I want some answers, Jasra.

    So JJ where would you like to take me out for the day? I’m bored you’ve already agreed to be my girl until Mahmood returns. I’d like to see the grave yards in Bahrain – won’t you please show me around cutie pie?

    Blimey, first time I ever heard Texas suggested as the place for pretty women. I go there frequently on business and the main impression I have of Texan women is that you can’t get past them, you can’t get around them, you can’t get over them and if any of them should tip over near you then you’re gonna die a horrible squelching death.

    Thank you for your wishes SBG, this is a birthday I will remember for a long long time.. certainly the coldest I have had with -20c and 3 meters of snow in some places, it can’t get colder!

    I must say though, that the German hospitality is surprising, it can surpass even Arab hospitality at times…

  51. mahmood says:

    Re: Mahmood’s Den Scapegoat of the Moment

    Thank you fishy! Although I didn’t have the time to slide, skid and ski on the slopes, I did have immense fun just being there and watching people hurl themselves at speeds of more than 100kps off a ramp 100s of meters off the ground!

    My birthday celebrations were subdued, although I must thank my colleague who organised a cake and a candle at the Oberstdorf Nordic Park 🙂 that was completely unexpected and nice. Thank you both!

    And we were even officially welcomed as the “Bahraini Delegation” at both stadiums on loud speakers and on “Fan TV”, it was hillarious and wonderful at the same time.

    More than anything, this has been the most information gathering packed birthday I have ever had.

  52. mahmood says:

    Re: Mahmood’s Den Scapegoat of the Moment

    not yet! though I hope to be alive at 58! For the moment I’m happy enough with 43.

    no idea what’s happnended to the website.. I know that MySQL,the database engine crapped out, but I haven’t had the time to look into it other than restarting it and fixing a couple of tables. No guarantee that it won’t happen again… so thanks JJ for taking the onus of blame! 🙂

  53. mahmood says:

    Re: Mahmood’s Den Scapegoat of the Moment

    We didn’t have the time to actually ski! Not by a long shot..

    We arrived in Frankfurt in good time, and even found the Stutggart flight, however due to heavy snow there we just sat in the airplaine for a couple of hours before they cancelled the flight. Then we traipsed all over the airprot to revalidate the tickets to train travel and retrieve our bags. In any case we arrived in Stuttgart in the afternoon and we were met by a lovely lady who took real good care of us and drove us to Oberstdorf which would be our home for the next 3 days.

    But apart from visiting television production facilities, talking to producers, directors and cameramen and meeting the Oberstorf Mayer and some of his deputies, the events organisers and the equivalent of Bernie Eccelstone’s snow counterpart, we didn’t have a single minute to ourselves! I kid you not, it was work throughout and even in the 2.5 hours drive back to Stuttgart we were discussing and filling in the blanks of a report that I plan to submit by Wednesday this week…

    Still, the German hospitality, the excellent friends we’ve made and the thrill of Ski Jumps and Cross Country events were brilliant and we not only enjoyed ourselves, but have various ideas on how to adapt the German event management ideas into those we can benefit from in Bahrain.

  54. mahmood says:

    Re: Mahmood’s Den Scapegoat of the Moment

    It wasn’t Xaraya’s fault really… it was a corrupted “sessions” table in the database that screwed things up. I haven’t had time to look at it as after landing at Bahrain airport this morning, going home for a quick shower and change I went to the office to take care of business, but I suspect that the server was restarted for some reason in the middle of some session being written to the table…

    no matter, this is fixed now…

    Thank you for the birthday wishes.. this has been a very eventful and cold birthday indeed!

    Look at that. You go off on a trip and Egypt turns “democratic”. Maybe you should return to Europe and Iran will change. That must be the key. Mahmood goes on a trip and the Middle East changes.

    I will do. It has been a couple of years since I have been to Germany, and then to Aachen, a nice city but not my favourite. Was there for the horses, love the horses.

    Great pictures Mahmood. I can almost smell the “Gluhwein”(literally glowing wine), the “hot drink” most Germans drink at this time. It is spiced wine. Although a Muslim so I cannot drink, I do make the spirits free version. Love the smell on a crisp winters day.

    Happy birthday Mahmood. Being Germany myself I can attest to German hospitality. I must confess, being born in Northern Germany, that the Germans in the Southern part of the country are better at this. The more north you go in Germany the more cold people get. My favourite place in the country is Garmisch, for the people and the skiing.

    thank you malik. I enjoyed myself tremendously in Oberstdorf where the people we met were more than helpful and generous. quite hospitable people really.

    if you want to see a little of what I’ve been up to and where I’ve gone, have a look at my Flickr pages where I just started uploading a selection of the 1,115 photographs I shot!
