    Interesting how you answered “54. Do you have an addictive personality?” I really thought it was asking: “Is your personality addictive?” as in, do people get addicted to YOU? Kind of funny to think that and then read you’re answer.

  10. can’t believe i read it all!! good one though, it would also be interesting to see you “drink” argeeleh , sounds to me like an addiction :D

  11. Tsk, tsk. You forgot number 28.

  12. sami

    loser :p

  13. Hal

    I dont hate your jingly Swatch bracelet! I think it’s tres cool and kitschy. :)

    And how come your favourite dessert is not ice cream? I feel so betrayed.

  14. hehe, “drinking” is a direct translation from the Arabic.. “neshrab argeeleheh”… :)

    Sami you loser, if you were introduced to me in any other way other than the way we did get introduced you would have hated me. I mean, you hated Omar, and he’s the Angel Assi :P

    Hal, haha, well that’s just cause you’re cool. Most people are not :)
