My company sent me to a 2.5 days course. I got to sit next to a Tyra Banks look-alike. My initial reaction: Who's this clown? I just hate newbies, I can't help it. Anyways, I just acted courteous, and tried to curb any of the many sarcastic comments I had flooding my brain. And this is what I get...
First day of the course-
Tyra Banks look-alike: OMG you are so nice!
Tyra Banks look-alike: No seriously
Hanan: you don't really know me
Tyra Banks look-alike: No, I saw your pics on the intranet and I knew that I had to meet this girl..you seemed so nice.. your pics are so pretty mashallah
Hanan: errr thanks?
One week after the course, Tyra Banks look-alike ads me on BlackBerry Messenger.
Tyra Banks look-alike: Hanan, what's your favorite color?
Hanan: I don't know ... (color)
Tyra Banks look-alike: (color) nice :) I wanna know 3 of your favorite colors. What are the other 2?
Hanan (seriously confused): color 2 & color 3
Tyra Banks look-alike: Hanan is a very nice name. But when I chat to you it feels more like Hanno or maybe Alhanan. Duno. What do your friends call you? Any special nicknames?
Hanan (seriously scared): No one calls me anything. It's just Hanan.
Tyra Banks look alike: May I call you henno or Hanno?
Hanan: hey g2g
Hanan changes her status to unavailable.

Obviously I care, for some reason beyond my understanding, I care. Otherwise I wouldn't be spending most of my time playing, pausing, rewinding all our conversations in my head.
I don't want to impress you. I don't want to be you. I don't want to be your friend. I don't want your acknowledgment. Yet, I am so freaking obsessed, that I am blogging about it.
Of all the things I want to tell you, I want to tell you this: For a so called nonconformist, you surely do judge!
