Blog Tag Game for Yalda

This game has been converted to a Persian form & I had been invited by my friend Hanna to participate in the Game.
So I wrote my 5ive BIG NOT-KNOWINGS in Persian & then I decided to put them here to & invite some other friends to join the game.

* I make a story before I sleep every night, if not, I would not be able to sleep.
* Once a troop of "Islamic" police seized me & 20 of my other friends in a Nearby city Damavand for having a "party in which boys & girls were together under a roof" (I'm not joking that was the statement in our court note. They held us prisoner for a night & even of now, I shiver when I remember the humiliation of that night.
* My relationship with the only boyfriend I had was a complete disaster... diverse intentions & different interests... total catastrophe!
* I fell in love with a cartoon Character when I was in high-school.
* Sometimes I dream I'm a sim in Sims II! I love that game!

& now for the other 5 people I have to invite to Blog-tag:
My dear Lynne
Dear Grandpa
Dear Pantra

My Days

This is written in request of a friend:
My life is pretty normal Well... but I guess u do not know what is normal in Iran LOL.
I usually wake up at 6:30 (my alram goes off at 5:45 though) & I leave home at 7:30 or so. I have a half-an-hour ride to reach my work by a taxi. I dont take my car cos I work in a restricted area where cars are not allowed in. I start work at 8. I'm a food inspector in an Orgnizational Company. So I have to go down to the site sometimes but I'm more in the office nowadays. Work times finish at 4 here but I usually have to stay overtime till 6 pm cos I take one day off each week for my classes. The ride back home take usually an hour or so.... bad traffic & all that junk. Anyway, I usually have classes in the evening: My English conversation gatherings, painting classes, gym & some school courses. If I would not have a class I'm usually out with my numerous friends. We go out to movies, cafes, resturants, theaters, bookstores &.... I participate in some different group of friends so it takes a lot of time for me to stay connected to them all. Usually it's 9ish when I get back home. & then I have a few words with my family, I study a bit. I play Sims II & I sleep around 11.
Workday starts from Saturday till Wedensday & we have Thursdays & Fridays off. However, I have classes on Thursdays too so that leave Fridays to be spent by my family & of course study a bit!
Well that's how my life passes me by.

Here Come Yalda

In my personal opinion, Yalda Night (Celeberating the victory of Light over darkness) is the best one-night celeberation of Persian culture.
Some say that Chahar-shanbe-soori (the bon-fire night near Norooz) in March, is the most memorable one, yet for me, Yalda has a very special place... I have such nice memories of the tales been told by fire light, the poems read, the stuff eaten (you know I LOVE snacks) & ... that hardly anything else can replace them.
This year Yalda is Thursday night (Weekend in Iran) so most families gather together & have fun. It should be another memorable night.
Anyhow, it'll be my birthday in 2 weeks too.... My Sister says "You like Winter, cos you were born in winter". Maybe she is right... or maybe simply, winter is the nicest season ever.
