Have you been in a situation which you accidentally made a phone call? If you haven’t, you are so darn lucky because it happened to me many times and many of them were not fun. Here is what happened today:

We were at the Spot restaurant with friends that I asked for one of my friend’s phone number. She kindly spelled it to me and I punched in into my cell phone then I pushed dial so that she will have my phone number on her caller id. We kept talking that I realized my phone was on call for 45 seconds, so making jokes, I said “Hey!.. Look I am on the phone with you for 48 seconds!” This happens a lot; you call someone and you forget that it went onto the voicemail system and your voice gets recorded, so as the times that your phone dials unintentionally because it is under pressure either by your butt in your back pocket or some object on your front pocket. Anyways, but this time it was slightly different. Continuing on making jokes, I held the phone next to my ears and yelled “Hey! Ati’s voicemail.” It was not pleasing rather scary that I was staring at her face and she did not have a phone on her hand, but someone replied “Yes!” Was it ghost or something? I am not really scared of ghosts but I don’t like shocks like this either. I knew I dialed the correct number so it couldn’t have been someone else unless the congestion in the wireless network resulted in a jam and thus my line crossed some other line. But this happened rarely, so it was not that easy to realize it at that moment. All of the sudden, I realized that it is the ghost of her mother speaking with me. Yes! Her mom had her phone that day. But the story does not end here. Persian parents are typically curious, so was her mother. She had heard my voice and not her boyfriend’s voice thus resulting into little bit of confusion. Thankfully things were resolved and the story ended with laughter.

First of all, have a happy and warm 2007. By warm I meant anytime during the year you should be feeling warm and melting. Why do I wish you to melt? I don’t. It is inevitable that global warming is causing the weather to go crazy. No matter where you live, you are used to a certain type of weather and temperature. Cool or warm, you will feel the difference, and at some point, you will be pissed. I live in Los Angeles. It is Winter and it should be cold but it seams that the parents of earth are having too much fun partying and getting drunk that they forgot to control the weather cast. One day you go out in the morning and it is freezing, so you take you jacket with you, and at noon it is so darn hot that you feel like taking of your shirt and pants and jump into a nice cool water swimming pool. That is when you don’t find yourself a pool and get pissed off and start to melt. Another day it might be so freezing that you run home to be in front of fireplace. Later you will find yourself sleep and melting inside a blanket next to the fireplace. So, either way you will melt.

Second of all, I would like to wish you a year full of success and happiness. To you, success might be getting a new job, graduating from school, wining some money in the stock market, changing a relationship, losing your mind (I know someone who loves to lose his mind, that is his way of success), or whatever; I am not going to write two pages and list every single thing I can think of. I need some sleep OK, and this is keeping me up enough. Happiness come from you too. I cannot make you happy, nor anyone else. So, if you are not happy I wish you that you will find a way to make yourself happy.

Lastly, be passionate. This is my favorite wish for everyone. I cannot live without passion. I meant all of us should be passionate about something, right? That is what helps you to move on. It actually directly links to happiness. So, I wish you a new year full of passion.

And the pumpkin, you may wonder, came from my brother’s neighbor, and was broken, and I regret that I found it late, otherwise there would a nice pumpkin pie on the table prepared by me.
