Cousin: I think Mos Def is so good looking.
Younger sister: You must be Mos Blind.

The YS Chronicles
“It’s weird when you’re searching for stuff. That’s when you realise people are such losers, making websites about vegetables and stuff.” (My 12 year old sister whilst doing homework for her Food class at school.)
Which brings me rather loosely onto the subject of mobile phones. I love my phone but it fails in one area, I can’t take pictures in the dark. Samsung have remedied that problem and released the Samsung SGH-X600 with integrated flash and night mode. I’ll wait however until Nokia bring out something similar. I’ve never had a mobile phone that wasn’t a Nokia and I’m not about to start now.

Quality, Value and Crap.
I think I may finally have evidence that suggests that my sister is in fact my sister and not an alien imposter.
She says disappointedly whilst watching Hobby and Craft Day on QVC, “Oooooh, I wish it was Craft Day every day…”
Me too kiddo, me too.

Hasta la vista
Younger sister: Oh I don’t like him (points to Arnie on the screen). Wasn’t he in “The Communicator”?
Everyone falls about laughing for a few minutes.
Me: Yeah I can imagine how that would be scary. “Sarah Connor?” “Yes.” “I have been sent here to kill you but before I do, let’s talk about the options that we are faced with and hopefully reach a informed resolution.”

My room, 10.30 pm, hovering near the computer:
Younger sister: (out of the blue) I learnt a new word today.
Younger sister: Hyperbole
Saima: That’s a new one.
Younger sister: You don’t know?
Saima: Well, I’ve heard of hyperbola in maths.
Younger sister: It’s like exaggeration, like, “I was waiting for ten years” when it was only ten minutes.
Saima: But that’s just exaggeration.
Younger sister: No, no, no, like “I’d walk a thousand miles for you”.
Saima: No, that’s just bullshit.

What’s in a name?
Wednesday 13th 2000 @ 1.45am in my nan’s living room, watching a movie.
Younger sister: (out of the blue) Why don’t people ever call their son Tin.
Saima: Ya what?
Younger sister: Why don’t they ever call their sons Tin.
Saima: Because it’s not a name maybe?
Younger sister: Well, we have Tim, why not Tin?
Saima: Tim is short for Timothy, what would Tin be short for?
Younger sister: Names don’t have to be short for anything.
Saima: Tin is a silly name. It’s an object anyway.
Younger sister: So are other names…..
Saima: But it sounds stupid.
Younger sister: All names are stupid. It’s just because we’ve heard them so much we accept them.
Saima: Yeah, let’s just make up names left, right and centre. We could have Ton instead of Tom.
Younger sister: Exactly.
A character comes into the film called Myron.
Younger sister: What kind of name is that?
Saima: I guess his parents had the same idea as you. Byron just wasn’t good enough.
