I had a chance to stop by the Red Bull 25 Hour Go-Cart race yesterday. Overall, the event was not as organized as the previous year. Some points for next year, if anyone in charge is reading: 1. Get clean gas, as teams found sand in some of the gas gallons. If sand was put […]

طق يا مطر طق بيتنا يديد مرزمنا حديد listen I am usually a fan of sunny days and hot weather (a couple of winters in the Midwest does that to a person); but the weather in Kuwait has been very monotonous as of late. I have been cheerfully watching the gloomy sky for some days […]

Another random (and somewhat useless) post involving pictures from my Nokia N80 (read:crap). Enjoy the mirabile visu sites of kuwait .. in color no less.

There was a fire yesterday in the building in front of Maki. The majority of the top four floors was in flames before they put it out. With the current trend in skyscrapers in Kuwait; I question the Firefighters ability to control them. Do we even have the resources to battle flames at 30+ floors? […]

What the hell is up with the weather? And for some reason, this song is stuck in my head: Sunrise Sunrise Looks like morning in your eyes But the clock’s held 9:15 for hours update (this is from roughly a year ago): Nibaq and his views on the Desert Fubuki ™:

Some pictures I took on friday: Hashi: Great food .. very small portions. You could probably order three items per person and still leave hungry. Chocolate Bar – Bida’a: We were hungry after Hashi .. much better than Marina, much more relaxed atmosphere (and easier to get to). Puzzle: I haven’t made a puzzle in […]

Is flickr being banned by your ISP? Use the IP address to access the site: If that doesnt work; there is always Mark’s Proxy. In the meantime, I suggest you write a letter to your ISP kindly asking for them to remove flickr from the list of blocked sites. Qualitynet: Zajil: FastTelco: […]

Some pictures I felt the need to share with you; they speak for themselves. Double parked in a handicap spot (It doesn’t get any more ignorant than this): Picture of the menu from ‘The Lounge’ in Marina; yes .. it does say crapaccino:

Compared to Michigan (or anywhere really); gas is very cheap(and 98 octane!): Old habits die hard, all I need now is Nadhim Ghazali, a Duw’a and my farwa: The never ending bridge(again): Wish you were here .. عودك رنان رنة عودك إلي Ùˆ عيدا كمان ضلك عيد يا علي أنتا الدقيق أنتا الزويق سمعنا

Too tired to post .. enjoy the pictures. Pictures:

I have been waiting for the Nokia N80 since its release/introduction back in November. I figured; 3megapixel camera, upnp, WLan, SIP … blah blah. Basically I figured it would be the perfect phone; So, I have finally taken it out of its box and switched all the data over onto it and so on. My […]

I haven’t posted in ages .. and I wouldn’t say that I am back, because I never really left. Anyway, chalk the absence to the usual .. work,friends,work,friends. A couple of people have threatened to shoot me If I didn’t post, apparently my blog is the only thing keeping them from suicide (Yes, you!). Eh, […]
