    oh, # 19…i am still doing it till now…considering my age…for a while my son was doing it too, i thought it was genetic, till i found this cream “control-it”, baught it online, apply it on his fingers for few days, i guess less than aweek…works like magic…now his nails r so long and i have to cut them frequently….that cream was magic for me….but never applied it on my fingers…i still bite them all the time..

    u know, when u turn 30…u would wanna be 20’s again…take it from me….it is not cuz of age, but cuz there r so many things u wish u had them earlier to enjoy them for more time…so enjoy ur 3omor dear….it is a blessing…el 3omor kuloh inshalla….
    peace to all…

    1) My first amr diab record was “mn kam sana wanna mayyal”, back in 80s, when I was 4 yrs old. (or younger probably).

    2) I laugh in public, infront of TV and at cinemas. I laughed at some funerals.

    3) I wish I had curly hair. I’ve got soft spot for curly hair. I hate my straight hair. I intentionally used cheap brands hair gel to get rid of its straightness. I hate my hair.

    #11, I am aware of every world event , because of #6 🙂
    #19, I stopped this bad habit just to make mom stop with talking to me about it..
    #24, I love candles .. I buy them like they are going to disappear tomorrow.. they give me a sense of peace and calm..

    Wish I can belly dance and use it as exercise to loose some weight..
    From your notes , I think you are a nice human being that is easy to get along with..
