New Rabbits Are Out… Welcome!

Please welcome with me…

The fourth generation of rabbits in our extremely small farm… Please welcome with me… Snow-white.

Benjamin Franklin!

Writer, Inventor, Scientist, Humorist, Statesman, Man of courage, charm, and wit… Those words were on the back cover of a book I found by chance today in the university library while searching for travel books about Jordan. The above words were enough to arise my curiosity, they describe a prominent historical figure. Can you think of a person which those words might describe? Do you believe that it is easy to have all of those characteristics in one person?! .
“The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin”, this is the title of the book which is sitting on my left leg now. It is not a full book, it is a kind of abridged version of the original one. It is stated in the front cover of this book that it is meant: “..for readers whom English is a second language…”.
Though I am having an English exam tomorrow morning, I couldn’t help my self to put the book down. I have almost finished most of it not only because it is very intersting and exciting but also and most importantly, because it has small pages and its vocabulary is very simplified.
Sentences I liked:

“A hard-working man could stand before kings. I was hard-working. I not only stood before kings in later life but I once sat down to dinner with the King of Denmark.

Last but not least, here is the photo of this great multi-talented man.

*. I don’t know about my Biostatistics Exam! It seems that I have made few mistakes (note: (few) not (a few)!). My grade won’t be more than 28! God knows!.
*. More and more rabbits are coming from the ground. The first mother rabbit has had all of her children out. In a new development, the black one’s children have started coming out today! In contrary to their black mother, George says that he saw 5 all white rabbits coming from that hole. I am not sure whether he is exaggerating or not but the thing that I am sure of is that one of her children is the (most white) rabbit I’ve seen since not a short time. It is very beautiful, “Snow-white”, I believe that such a name will perfectly fit him.
*. Tomorrow is the banquet for the sake of my secret benefactor!
*. Finally, I wish my self much luck in tomorrows easy-hard exam. To be more accurate, I should say, today’s exam, it has just overcame 12 PM… I must go sleep now. I wish my self nice dreams too [ 🙂 ]. See ye.

A World Wonder… Petra

Hi! It is a week exactly since my last blog, and it is exactly the (biostatistics) lab again. The computer lab today is not like the last time, it is different in the number of students present and one could simply predict the reason which is the 1st exam of this subject which will take place tomorrow. Any way, this week was the most beautiful week from not a short period of time.

The contest to choose the new world wondrs was so harsh and difficult( as difficult as my exam tomorrow afternoon) I really didn’t expect that jordan will be able to make it in such a world event. Having there thoughts in my mind, i went to bed at 11’oclock saturday evening not expecting to be one of the winners. Sunday morning while walking to meet the bus for the university I met up with ro7i bin 3aid;
– “Good morning!”., I said.\
I immediately started to inquire about the results of the comeptiotion which were announced after 12 the night before. I even didn’t give him the chance to respond to my “|Good morning”.
– “What happened to Petra” I said in the most eager and enthusiastic way.
_” We WON!”. And my feelings were if you have told me the news that I have won some very big money in the lottery! Very happy and puzzled at the idea that we can compete, and most imprtantly WIN, at something on the wrold level.

Done with the news about Petra. Going back to thursday, getting back home from the university and seeing the expressions on my brother’s face, expressions of one who is going to tell you a very big happy news. I immediately get deliverd the news (wirelessly!) that our birthed rabbits have finally come out from their hole. In order to make it more enthusiastic for me to hear the news. I waited a very long 30 years, sorry, 30 minutes (It was 30 years to me! With some exageration). Eating lunch then setting off to the garden(Well, it is not really a garden like what most people would think about this word! Unless you are from karak then you will surely know what a garden in karak mean. ) .

Reaching the inner room where the rabbits are kept, I had to remove some barrials where I found that tiny, fluffy, beautiful small creature there, creeping and hiding like a mouse. What I liked much about this tiny rabbit was his black and white colors. Which was mixed in a way similar to those of a casual cow. Later that day, I am not sure, may be it was friday, I found out that this rabbit is one of 3 tiny rabbits born with him. By the way, yesterday evening, I was astonished by my M telling me that my father is reportedly to have seen a small rabbit rouming around in the garden!. I went down to discover after a through investigation and with the urgent help from my mother that one of those 3 rabbits have ran out of his house and he/she (I don’t know which of them know! Those of you having or having had rabbits know that it is not a simple way to find the gender of a rabbit. The rabbit was able to hide in the rocks piled at the corner of the house, as a result, we weren’t able to catch him and bring him back to his home! He slept the night over there and to this moment I don’t know what hadd happened to him.
