Photographer’s Assistant

So remember, when I wrote about my cousin’s photography business here? This past Sunday I got to assist her. She had the same client for the wedding and the valima (a reception), and since the valima was in New Jersey (and very close to where I live), she asked me to go as her assistant. It …

John McCain’s Hypocrisy

Even though I don’t usually watch Rachel Maddow’s show, I do watch it here and there because my brother prefers the shows on MSNBC (while I like CNN more). The only show on MSNBC I like is Keith Olbermann’s. Earlier this week, she had a piece on John McCain’s contradictions on basically EVERY policy. While I think …

Rutgers vs. Syracuse Football Game

This past Saturday, I attended the Rutgers vs. Syracuse football game, courtesy of winning two tickets through NJ.com’s (online version of a local newspaper) twitter account. I graduated from Rutgers last May, and had not gone to any of the games so far in the season, so this game was also my first game as …

Eid-ul-Adha 2010

Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating! It’s very weird — it’s our first Eid ever without Faraz (who moved to Canada in July) and also our first Eid in our new house. We invited our local family (around 45-50 people) for breakfast/brunch, so that should be a lot of fun! Hope everyone has a great day …

Aurora Moments Photography

A good photographer makes a world of a difference, don’t you think? My cousin, Samia, recently started a photography business of her own, called Aurora Moments Photography. She’s based in New York (but does events in New Jersey and other local areas as well). I’m not just saying this because she’s my cousin, but she …

MSNBC Suspends Keith Olbermann

So as you may (or may not have) heard, MSNBC ‘indefinitely’ suspended Keith Olbermann earlier today in light of the news that Olbermann donated to three democratic candidates in the midterm election. Olbermann, who acknowledged the contributions, made the maximum legal donations of $2,400 to each of the three candidates. According to POLITICO: NBC has a rule …

Election Day Reminder

Hopefully you are aware that tomorrow is Election Day! If you know me personally, you have gotten an email reminder as well, but again this is just a friendly reminder (as always) for you to vote tomorrow.  I don’t care who you vote for, just don’t forget to vote and remind your friends and family …

Empire Today, Follow Up

As a quick follow up to my blog post last night about our horrible experience with Empire Today, I wanted to post real quick that I just received a call from Empire Today. The woman, Rebecca, said she had read my blog post from last night and was calling to apologize. I think it’s great that Empire …

Empire Today

I started writing this October 11th, and finally got around to finishing it today. — This blog post is Part Two of a series of blog posts I’m working on this week on the horrible customer service I’ve encountered lately. Read Part One by clicking here. — You know what I have very little patience with? Bad …

Blinds To Go

This LONG blog post is Part One of a series of blog posts I’m working on this week on the horrible customer service I’ve encountered lately. — If your business promises a service, I expect nothing less. For some reason, businesses aren’t getting the memo lately that if you are promised a service, consumers actually expect it. …
