Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Things to Keep me Awake

Here’s how I’m trying to stay awake.



If you’re freaked out by weird and scary people don’t watch the video just listen to the song. I may warn you though, the song is heavyyyyyyy.
And in the words of AC/DC, for those about to rock, we salute you!
I love the lyrics: Nightwish – Wish I had an Angel (Note that the lyrics page will load a small segment of the song which will play automatically.)

What’s in your Car?

Pandoras box Shayouma gave me an Idea a while back while suggesting I should have an extra dishdasha in my car. Today for example I learned that I should keep some money in the car because I forgot my wallet at home, and there was no way I was going to go and get it because there wasn’t enough time.

I’ll update the list below according to what you all contribute.

What else?

The Experiment: You are my specimens!

Question: What is your strongest sense? What do you notice the most when you experience things with your senses. Vote on the right please! Thank you.

One or the Other The idea wasn’t to get a lot of people to drop by really. It was centered around the idea of saying something totally obscene and misleading [link removed] and finding out how people would react to it. Turns you all have good sportsmanship. Give yourselves a pat on the back! I have also noticed that also a lot more people participated in the polls. Why, I can’t be sure. Maybe people prefer to participate in the polls more than leave a comment. However thank you to all who contributed. Welcome singles, forever free.

Now, on to more pressing matters. Last week there were a few people (Joud, Mark, and Chikapappi) who posted about their traffic violations and how ridicules some of their fines have become. Mine are a bit over 350 KD.  I have however a strategy that has been working for a while, that might help you as well to avoid the cameras.

flagged After a little conversation my brother and I were having he gave me the idea to literally flag the cameras in my car’s GPS system. Being the loyal citizen that I am, I have gone around and flagged A LOT of cameras, I didn’t count how many, but here is a picture. Keep in mind that this picture is not complete and this is only part of Kuwait. Click on a picture for a better view.

juice I have also been enjoying immensely my carrot and orange cocktail juice.  However, this time I gulped the whole thing down before getting into my work clothes.

P.S. I changed my clothes in the car while driving on the fifth ring road. What a rush!
