DM, actually

by Mash Ghasem on

my parents live in the US. My mother has been critical of all my social activities since I was a teenager.

But whenever the movement picks up she becomes a committed supporter of the cause! Specially if I'm going to deliver a speech in a meeting or read a poem or something. She comes and sits in the front row, and becomes such an enthusiastic activists.

And then we go home after the big public meeting and the complaining begins:" So vat hapend, vy are deze mullahs stil in Tehran, vat are u doing now. Vy don't you get rid of dem now, vy iz eet taking so long,...."

She is such an extrovert (in her 80's) if she had the vaguest idea she's being filmed she'll start putting on make up and...Come to think of it I should write a script on her. You never know, it could be theraputic after all!

When I say steak......

by Souri on

As we do speak French (not English) at home, we have less "language harassment"  (I have pretty a correct accent in French)

But when we have Iranian guests and I speak Persian, I pronounce it : Estake....then the kids laugh at me. Then, they repeat it each time they want me to make an steak for them :)

Thanks Mehrdad for posting.

I used to tell my daughter that I was tempted to do a blog regarding her and call it "shit my teen-aged daughter says". I mean how many times we start telling something that happened to us to our teen-agers and they interrupt us by saying:"I am not interested. I want to listen to this song. This is my favorite song". Or they complain that we mix he and she. Or my daughter asks me to have a badass song blasting from radio when I drop her off at school, etc.

Between all the three videos, I still like the one"shit that Persian girls say the best.

on IC. JJ and Framarz to begin with. Hey guys how about it? I could almost imagine JJ's lines: " I buy you all dis clothes and you don't like them, vy?"

On a personal note, I'm so tempted to film my mom and post it here (she's in her eighties and still kicking in the sand box, for an octegenarian). 


Mashty geraami, I will, without shades or wig...

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

Just need one more trip back home, one more......

Then I'll be all over this site for all to see, although it would not be necessarily a pretty sight, for some at least.....

RG, you have no excuses now

by Mash Ghasem on

All you need is some shades and a wig, for disguise. Ask your kids to film you, ordering them around and....No acting needed, just be yourself. Smoking Pipe is optional. Do we have a Brady Bunch now?


not funny at all, too close to home....

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

 The other week, I found my eldest son, telling my youngest, who wanted to watch sponge bob instead of doing his homework:

"yoo maast doo yor homevork , yoo mast vork verrry hard, yoo mast get a pi hech di, yoo mast bicam a doktor..."

"Personal business must yield to collective interest."
