Insomnia presents.. Things Ahmed does (that everyone else finds strange)


* I have a cup of hot water with 1-2 tablespoon of honey in the mornings instead of coffee, late at night (instead of horlicks) and whenever really; especially if unwell or with stomach problems/reflux.


* I wash my face and hands with lemon juice and water instead of normal soap


* I sprinkle salt on apples after cutting them


* When I have a blocked nose, I put my head over a bowl of hot water and vinegar and inhale the vapours instead of using vicks vaporub, and on the subject of vicks….


* I put a bit of vicks up my nostrils when I’m congested.


* I place a bowl or two of vinegar in a tobacco smelling room and leave it for a few hours to clear the smell. It works, if you like the smell of vinegar..


* I have a Lota/Buta in the bathroom (who doesnt? everyone, oh well)


* Use incense instead of air sprays.. constantly.. the kitchen smells like a bloody souk!


* I use a miswak (a twig toothbrush) a lot… I do look simialr to that with one of them in my mouth.. beating stick for unruly children and constant grimace of disappointment and meanness included..


* in addition to using miswak-infused toothpaste when brushing in the mornings and evenings.


* I use oil based fragrances, instead of normal aftershave, often with odd names

.. There. Mehh, I’m weird.. but then so is most of the world.

Pizza Guy by Touch Sensitive

Flume, Van She, Chet Faker: seems I’m in the wrong country for half the artists I admire.. (Cheers John for the link). Going around delivering tracks and compositions around like pizzas (instead of letting them stagnate on soundcloud, which is what I’ve been doing as of.. the last.. 10 years (bit of shameless self-promotion).

And of course do it all in sunny weather, the UK is currently half underwater.

Oh, and I’m sick.

It seems South London has become very interesting in the time I’ve been away.. I may have to rediscover the very area I was born and raised in after I return :)

Ten Rules for Being Human

Cherie Carter-Scott


1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period.

2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.”

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”

4. Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning lessons does not end. There’s no part of life that doesn’t contain its lessons. If you’re alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.

6. “There” is no better a place than “here.” When your “there” has become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.”

7. Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. Your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

10. You will forget all this.

"100 Skills Every Man Should Know" it says..

A look at a few essential man skills from this list on a DIY website. Well, I thought: I am a man, should I really know these skills?

6. Conquer an off-road obstacle
Like a pebble. Yes, being a man is full of obstacle shoving..

17. Home brew beer
(Seen, so I’ll just consult my local Imam on the subject, pay HM Revenue and Customs a shitload of money I don’t have now or may ever have to produce a commonly found substance that can be easily bought in bulk for the princely some of 10 quid, and oh yea my wasted time and life force slowly ebbing away on account of setting up what could be misconstrued by po-po’s as a meth lab in my own living room.. and I’ll be right on it blud… and this may be the result.)

25. Split firewood
(Why? I have heaters.. and even if I didn’t, I have a lighter mate, thanks.)

34. Fell a tree
(I fell ‘em all the time: I use paper to wipe my arse. Argument is invalid; bitches be trippin’)

58. Build a shelter
(In my living room..)

100. Feeler gauges
(Touchy feely indeed..)

Conclusion: I can’t do any of these, and thus apparently I have failed at being a man.. the last 10 years of manhood (under British law) I have lived have all been a lie.. I am no man: I guess I’ll just have to castrate myself with a teaspoon :S

DIY is not exclusive to men, and women aren’t incapable of doing anything on that list either. Pisses me off when people continue to use played out stereotypes..

IMHO, all a man “should” know how to do is live, and do it by any means necessary.. If he’s alive, then he’s a man.. If not, then.. he was…
