Independence Days!
Last night I attended a reception dinner hosted by the Moroccan ambassador! Since I work for a multi-national firm I was invited to that event but I was confused! I thought that the reception dinner was to celebrate Morocco's independence day, but I was wrong! Morocco does have an independence day like any other nation but they don't celebrate it as much as they celebrated the event last night!

Without any further ado, the event last night was based on the day the current king sat on the throne! Apparently, Moroccans hold the day the King sat on the throne at a higher regard than that of Morocco's independence!

Don't you just love learning about other cultures? I know I do!

More Darts and Pats!
Here are some more "Darts and Pats!" They are old but still amusing!

Pat...
A “way-to-counter-the-rotation-of-the-earth” pat to the girl who walked around in circles to try to make the room stop spinning one late night.

From your roommate, who admires your logic.


Dart...

A “thanks-for-entertaining-me-with-your-melodrama” dart to the girl outside my apartment window who was yelling and sobbing relentlessly while fighting with her boyfriend on Thursday evening.

From a girl who thinks you should learn how to chill out and act civilized, or at the least wait until you are indoors before you verbally attack your boyfriend.


Dart...

A “grow-a-set-of-balls” dart to the guy who was being screamed at and cried on by his girlfriend outside my apartment window on Thursday evening.

From a girl who heard the entire thing and thinks that you should know better and have more self respect than to put up with such crap.


Dart...

A "where-are-your-standards?" dart to the girl who got mad and yelled at me after I wouldn’t have sex with her after knowing her for two hours.

From a sophomore guy who thinks you need to get your priorities straight.


Dart...

A "you-think-you’re-so-funny" dart to the girl who asked me to pull her finger and then farted on our first date.

From a shocked guy who acted like he was going to the bathroom and then left you at the restaurant — with the bill.


Pat...

A "you-should-always-watch-where-you-are-walking" pat to the bodybuilder that ran into a pole in D-Hall while staring at some lovely ladies.

From your friend that almost fell over laughing while you tried to play it off and is sure you made a great impression.


Dart...

A "you-should-at-least-have-used-your-own-dorm" dart to the drunk freshman who took a dump in our shower and peed in our hall.

From very angry sophomores who didn’t enjoy the mess and feel that it isn’t the housekeepers’ job to take care of your mess because you are incompetent.

Darts and Pats
One thing I really miss from my school in the US other than my friends and the area as a whole would be the section in the school paper called "Darts and Pats!" This is where students submit a "Dart" or something negative about anything on or off campus or a "Pat" which is something positive! I was reading the "Darts and Pats" today and found this one that made me laugh:

Pat...
A "way-to-party-hard" pat to the two girls who passed out on the floor in the middle of the hallway and woke up at 7 a.m. because people were going to church.

From a fellow hallmate who enjoyed seeing two girls passed out in the hall instead of their own beds.

Those girls must have had a great time! :oP

P.A.W.S in Kuwait



Today I got online and visited the PAWS Website and a few questions popped into my head! I was hoping that people out there would be kind enough to answer these questions!

1) Has anyone been to the PAWS Shelter in Wafra?

2) What is it like? (I used to frequent the SPCA shelter in the USA and I was curious about what this one is like)

3) How many volunteers do they have?

4) Do any of the bloggers out there volunteer?


Thanks people!

"My Stupid Mouth"
After coming home last night I decided to watch John Mayer's "Any Giver Thursday" concert on DVD while posting the earlier 2 quizzes ("What Kind of Soul Am I?" and "What Planet Am I From?")! I began surfing the net when the song "My Stupid Mouth" came on and I couldn't help but think the song can be soooo true it's not funny! Because of that I decided to post the lyrics to this song! ENJOY!






My stupid mouth
Has got me in trouble
I said too much again
To a date over dinner yesterday
And I could see
She was offended
She said "well anyway..."
Just dying for a subject change


Oh, it's another social casualty
Score one more for me
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one soon


We bit our lips
She looked out the window
Rolling tiny balls of napkin paper
I played a quick game of chess with the salt and pepper shaker
And I could see clearly, An indelible line was drawn
Between what was good, what JUST slipped out and what went wrong


Oh, the way she feels about me has changed
Thanks for playing, try again.
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one


I'm never speaking up again
It only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery
Than she desert me


Oh I'm never speaking up again
Starting now


One more thing
Why is it my fault?
So maybe I try too hard
But it's all because of this desire
I just wanna be liked
I just wanna be funny
Looks like the jokes on me
So call me captain backfire

Oh another social casualty
Score one more for me
How could i forget mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh whats a boy to do?
I guess i better find one

I'm never speaking up again
It only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery
Than she desert me


Oh I'm never speaking up again
Starting now

What Planet Am I From?




You Are From Saturn



You're steady, organizes, and determined to achieve your dreams.
You tend to play it conservative, going by the rules (at least the practical ones).
You'll likely reach the top. And when you do, you'll be honorable and responsible.
Focus on happiness. Don't let your goals distract you from fun!
Don't be too set in your ways, and you'll be more of a success than you ever dreamed of.

What Kind of Soul Am I?




You Are a Dreaming Soul





Your vivid emotions and imagination takes you awy from this world
So much so that you tend to live in your head most of the time
You have great dreams and ambitions that could be the envy of all...
But for you, following through with your dreams is a bit difficult

You are charming, endearing, and people tend to love you.
Forgiving and tolerant, you see the world through rose colored glasses.
Underneath it all, you have a ton of passion that you hide from others.
Always hopeful, you tend to expect positive outcomes in your life.

Souls you are most compatible with: Newborn Soul, Prophet Soul, and Traveler Soul

Attitude
Since Tequila69 wrote a post called "Insight" I decided to take a quiz called "How's Your Attitude?" Here are my results:






How Your Attitude Ranks
Your Attitude is Better than 85% of the Population


If you scored...

80-100: You've got a winner attitude. You're always optimistic and cheery. Your personality will get you far in life.

60-79: You have a good attitude. While a realist, you do see the positive side of most things. People love to be around you.

40 - 59: You have a positive attitude... Sometimes. You prefer to see the world through clear glasses, not rose colored ones.

20 - 39: You have an average attitude. You take the good and bad in life as they come. Though sometimes you could use a little more good.

0-19: You have a negative attitude. You tend to see the dark side of every situation. Free ice cream? No thanks, it will just make you fat!

Why? I Just don't Get It!
Can't we all get along people? I don't understand why this is going on? Why do people have to act in such a manner?

Just in case you don't know what this is, well these are a few pictures taken from a local newspaper showing how Iraqi citizens and a few Iraqi law officers were protesting against Kuwaiti Border Patrol after Kuwait put steel bars on Kuwaiti soil to show the Kuwaiti-Iraqi border to comply with the UN decision 833!

EQ Test
Your EQ is
133

50 or less: Thanks for answering honestly. Now get yourself a shrink, quick!
51-70: When it comes to understanding human emotions, you'd have better luck understanding Chinese.
71-90: You've got more emotional intelligence than the average frat boy. Barely.
91-110: You're average. It's easy to predict how you'll react to things. But anyone could have guessed that.
111-130: You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.
131-150: You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.
150+: Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.

Apologies and Respect
This post goes out to everyone out there, whether I know you or not! I'm sending out apologies to everyone out there on behalf of myself and others!

Why apologize? Well since there are all these attacks attributed to terrorism I think that someone has to apologize for something! I feel like there are soo many people out there who are acting violently due to things that happened to them and they just feel angry! This post goes out to them! More importantly apologies should be sent out to the people and the countries that have been affected by these bombings!

I also wanna apologize to Tata Botata and Purg for the dialogue in my blog and comments in other blogs! I have lots of respect for you guys and I apologize if I have done anything wrong!

!!! SORRY PEOPLE !!!

Mazaj Izbala!



Woke up today and felt like today was going to be one long, boring, never-ending day and that I wasn't in my usual cheerful, perky, "top of the mornin' to ya" kinda mood!

Showtime OR Orbit
I'm working on my room and now that I got the TV and the entertainment system I need to get hooked up with a form of satellite entertainment! So which one should I get, Showtime or Orbit?

Showtime: KD19.500 with every channel they offer and ART! This has more channels than Orbit. (KD17.990 with just Showtime alone and no ART)

Orbit: KD12.500 With all their channels, and Arabsat! Has my favorite channel (America Plus) since it gets all the new shows better than Showtime! (KD 15.000 one time payment for the Phillips decoder!)

What should I do? What should I get? Help me people! :oP

Seems like I'm indecisive right? :oP

Movies
Since I posted about KandE Kidz I might as well post about movies that you can watch that were filmed at a rave/club.





This is AWESOME British movie about Rave Culture and a night out with a group of friends!





A romantic movie that takes part at a rave! If my memory serves me correctly this movie is kinda like "Run Lola Run" in the sense that you get to see different peoples perspectives as the movie goes on!





Another AWESOME movie about raving! I would say that if you wanna watch a movie about clubbing then this and Human Traffic are the best but if you don't get the British dialect then go watch this!





Finally this movie was an OK attempt at a movie but the Rave scene was great! This movie also a "Run Lola Run" kinda movie!

What do you think?
Here are a few pics of raver kids (A.K.A Candy Kids, Candi Kids, Kandy Kids, Kandi Kids, or even the most commonly used KandE Kids). I just want to know what you guys think of those people portrayed in these pics!














So.... what do you think of these "Kidz"?

What New "Toy" Should I get?
I'm finally going to get a TV and a Theater System for my room! I've been wanting to get one since March but procrastinated and put it off but I can't anymore! I do have one issue though and that issue concerns the TV set! I'm not sure which one to choose! I'm looking at 2 different LG TVs:

1) LG RT 29FB90RB (Without the DVD player shown)



2) Lafinion 72 (Without the stand/table shown)



Both TVs have the same features except their looks and that the first one has that mini stand and better speakers! The Home Theater System I'll be getting is shown below:




Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

BLOG ISSUES
Has anyone noticed how there are flaws, issues, bugs in their blogs? I know I have noticed a few on mine and a some random happenings on other people's blogs!

Issues I Have:

1) I added the whole FlickR java window on the right and it worked great for the first few times but all of a sudden it quit working! Help! Please!?!

2) I have noticed that JC's comment that he posted has automatically been moved from the "Weird Toys" post to the "I've Been TAGGED" post! Why is that?

3) My blog looks extremely different depending on which browser I am using! :oP

4) My Shout Box went berserk the first time I put it up! I think I fixed it now!

Random Happenings:

1) I posted a comment on JC's blog once and it disappeared without a trace! I'm thinking it got moved to a different posting like what happened with his comment on my posting!

2) I was "blog hopping" and landed on Blasha's and Firefox would sometimes show her site with the white background as shown on IE every time I use IE! WHY?

Any insight people? Enlighten me!

I've Been TAGGED!
I've been tagged by Reema and JC! Thanks you guys, that just shows me you love me! ;o)



1. What does "love" mean to you?

Having someone with you who helps you out through thick and thin and brightens your day just by thinking about them!

2. What does "marriage" mean to you?

Just like most people said commitment, but I'll add on trust, compassion, passion, friendship, love, enjoyment, and a sacred bond between two people who love one another dearly, growing old together and cuddling!

3. Do you believe in "love at first sight" ?

FOR SURE

4. How many children would you like?

I'd like to have at least a boy and a girl so that makes 2, but no more than 2 boys and 2 girls!

5. If given the opportunity, what is that one song you would sing for me on wedding day?

Jimmy Buffet's "Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw!" HEHEHE I KEED I KEED!! My real answer would be Eric Clampton's "Wonderful Tonight!" or better yet "It's Your Love" by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.
For those who don't listen to English music and prefer Arabic then I would go for "Int 7abeebi" by Abdulkareem Abdullah - انت حبيبي

6. What is your favorite holiday destination?

Hmmmm.... Seychelles I'd say, cause I can't say anything else since I haven't been to Bali, Bahamas, Caribbeans and so on!

7. What are three qualities you would look for in woman?

- Respectful
- Kind-hearted
- Confidant/Proud

8. What are the three qualities and three bad habits that you have?

Qualities:
- Good listener
- Helpful
- Open-minded

Bad Habits:
- Addicted to computers (or anything with a square screen)
- If I have any money in my pocket/wallet I usually end up spending it
- Sometimes I'd be talking and get excited and let something slip out! OOPS! Don't worry it's not a secret that slips out I can keep those but I would be talking to someone who wasn't invited to a future event then that person begins to wonder why he/she wasn't invited! Get my drift?

9. Did you have any previous relationships?

The one I'm in now is my first! *BLUSH*

10. Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
Married, house/appt and kid(s), driving my BMW to work with a big smile on my face and out of my cubicle and into an office (hopefully a corner office with a view of the sea)!

Now who do I dare tag next?:

Hmmmm... sorry Zaydoun, Tata Botata, iDip, and ***Diamon***... TAG YOU'RE IT :o)

My Trip
Well, I'm sorry I couldn't post this earlier but that's what happens when someone comes back from a business trip and was in charge of preparing all the documentations to be sent out to those who attended! Anyways, here goes.....

Went to Kuwait Intl. Airport on Saturday and accidentally bumped into my Uncle who made fun of me for wearing a suit to go to Saudi! It wasn't my idea I told him since it was my boss' suggestion! It was at the airport when my boss found out that my tickets was on an Economy seat and he got pissed mostly at the person who booked the tickets but also at me for not telling him! Anyways, I snuck into the first class lounge with my uncle and my boss! *GRIN* Flying out of Kuwait on a calm 50 minute plane ride to Riyadh airport was good since it made me catch up on paperwork. After getting there my boss and I were taken into the VIP section of the airport by someone who looked familiar to me! We sat down and they took care of our passports and baggage! All we did was talk and I showed my boss the paperwork I finished on the plane! (Bonus points for me!) We left the airport and were taken to the hotel and I was amazed at how paranoid people in Riyadh were when it comes to terrorism! All their buildings, as in hotels and governmental sites, are surrounded by blockades and have high security police officers and military guards with tanks at the gates and entrances! We were checked in and I was extremely amazed that the organization that was hosting the meeting was not only paying for the room but for 3 daily meals (room service and coffee shop included) as well as laundry! One thing I was majorly bothered by was that the internet connection in the room was dial-up and you had to pay for every minute used! I didn't use the printing office cause they treated the internet as if it was an internet cafe! I settled in my room and enjoyed some time to myself but then went back to doing paperwork!

Day 2 was ok! I woke up and went downstairs to have breakfast with the boss and after that we waited for the chauffeurs to come and take us to meet the general manager and the operations manager of the hosting firm and discuss what needed to be discussed prior to the meetings that started the day after! From 9 to noon we were there trying to finish everything up then my boss and I went back to the hotel to relax a bit! I had lunch and watched TV while my boss took a nap! My boss had his own room so he wasn't bothered by the TV! :oP 5 o'clock hit and it was my favorite time of day... shopping and a night out to see the town! We went to 2 modern malls called the Faisaliya and the Mamlaka then I asked to be taken to an old souk (Souq Sha3bi) to get gifts for my brothers and friends! (Ni3il :oP) I liked the size of the modern malls and their design along with the stores but I felt that the standard on the malls was more like Al-Fanar or Marina! I was hoping for something like Al-Raya or better! I laughed when my boss and I tried to go to the top floor of the Mamlaka and we were told we can't! "Ladies only!" Apparently that top floor was shops concerning covered ladies (mu7ajabat), lingerie, and all sorts of feminine products! Think of a floor as big as Souq Sharq in length! Damn people!

Day 3... The Mayhem begins! I met each organizations Director of Operations and his entourage! (The meetings concerned 8 organizations till the last day we had a group from The World Bank!) Meetings started at 9:30 and ended at 5! There was a lunch break that was an hour long and a prayer break that was 30 minutes in length! My hand was aching by the end of the meeting cause I couldn't stop from taking notes, it was part of my duties! Once the meetings were concluded we were invited to dinner and we were told to be dressed down! About 2 hours in the hotel I came down to the lobby in jeans and a t-shirt and waited! The others came in dishdashas and business casual wear (slacks and a shirt) I guess since I was the youngest at 25 while everyone was over 45 I was the only one who took sport/casual wear for what it meant literally! We were taken to a private garden (mazra3a or ya5oor or as the Saudi's like to call it istira7a!) The place was amazing! One third of the place was a soccer field with green grass, the second part was cut into 4 parts, a pool, 2 green patches (1 for sheesha and the other for food), while a small part was shared with the last portion to contain a small building (mul7aq) for bathrooms, and housing for the worker! The last section not only was shared with the second section but had a tent that had AC and an outdoor seating area! We decided to sit on the "outdoor seating area" since there was this awesome cool breeze! The weather that night was AMAZING! Dinner was served at 10:30PM and it was saudi rice and meat/chicken depending on where you sat (kabsa s3oodiya or like we say it in Kuwait Machboos Diyay aw Machboos La7am!) After eating I had tea and sheesha before leaving that place at midnight!

Day 4 of the trip (Day 2 of meetings!) also started at 9:30 and ended at 2 for me but some people didn't leave till 5 due to private meetings! During the meetings I wanted to literally cut my right hand off cause I wanted to have an excuse to stop writing! Leaving early was a big PLUS for me! I got back to the hotel and relaxed before having to meet everyone at the lobby at 6:30 to go to the national museum (Al Mat7af Al-Wa6ani) We walked through the main building and was shown a video about Saudi Arabia and it also had a laser show as well! Once we were done with the tour we were taken to another building that used to be part of an old palace and had dinner there! We had dinner with the World Bank Group and there were ongoing discussions about what the World Bank was here to present! To the hotel I went after dinner! I was a little worried that night cause I mis-placed my sun glasses! I didn't know if I left them in the car or on the desk in the lobby of the hotel! I asked the hotel when I got back and thankfully my glasses were at the reception since a hotel employee found it and took it to the lost and found box!

Day 5 (Last day of the meetings) I was hoping for an easy day but I was wrong! Meetings started at 9:30 and ended at 3 after lunch! I took just as much notes but this time it was in English instead of Arabic! And we still got a 30 minute prayer break! Got back to the hotel and relaxed, had dinner and then went shopping again! I actually asked to go to the best traditional market and I was taken there! I bout a few things and I was surprised cause the places were still open at midnight! After leaving this area I asked the chauffeur to take me to a pharmacy to get medication my dad asked me for! I went to 3 different pharmacies and each one said that they didn't have it! I went to a 4th and the pharmacist told me he didn't have the measurement (40mg) I was looking for and the only ones he had were 10 and 20 mg.

Last Day in Saudi! Went shopping with my boss in the morning at the Faisaliya for about 2 hours before going back to the hotel to check out! We both were packed and ready but I need to purchase a small bag to put my things in since the bag I came in was a tad small for all the things I had to take back! (I came to Saudi with my laptop case and a small suitcase that the pilots use but when I left I had those 2 bags and a smaller suit case as well as the briefcase that was given to me by the host organization that had all the paper work in it! The paperwork filled that bag and I had no place for anything else!) My boss and the Director of Operations at the organization I worked for went to the hospital while I took a different car and went on another pharmaceutical hunt for the medication! I ended up buying the 20mg medication but doubling the amount my dad asked for! He was happy when he saw them! I arrived at the airport about 5 minutes after my boss got there! Talk about crazy drivers! Saudi drivers are insane! They drive like the covered women (mu7ajabat and munaqabat) here! They don't care who has right of way and they speed! The worst are the cab drivers since they don't care if their car gets hit! Every accident I saw there had a taxi cab involved in it! Sitting in the VIP section with 2 bosses can get weird so I decided to walk around the airport! BIG MISTAKE! There was nothing but 2 shops! A gold shop that made me thing I went into Murghab or The Gold Souq in Kuwait (Souq A`thahab) and a store that was as big as a baqala, bodega, or corner shop no matter how you look at it that sells pretty much everything from candy to digital cameras! The plane ride back was horrible! The plane was late due to technical malfunctions on the first plane so they had to get another plane from the hanger that was extremely dirty! You can see the cleaning crew go in with buckets, vacuum cleaners and so on! The crew within the plane were crazy! Running around like chicken with their heads cut off! There were a lot of people who were pissed cause they filled out the Duty Free purchasing request form and the attendants said that they were going to get them the things but by the time we arrived the attendants said that they didn't put the good on the plane! When we got to Kuwait everyone wanted to leave the plane so everyone got up thinking that they would open the door but NOOOO they can't! Apparently the Saudi's say that the ramp does not want to link to the door but we can see that they are having difficulties opening the door! Some guys in the back of the plane mentioned that the attendants not only forgot the duty free trolley but they also forgot the keys to the door! :oP 45 minutes later they open the back of the plane and people started going down the staircase that went from literally the A$$ of the plane to the streets below! We took busses and arrived at a door that was right next to the passport desks! I got past the passport desks (jawazat) and found our bags lined up and ready! I put them on a cart and waited for the bosses to show up and we left!

I was exhausted but at the same time excited cause I was going to see my parents later on that day since they were going to come back from Lebanon, "D" and my friends who were soo happy to see me and who apparently missed me! :o)

Sorry for the long post but I had to do it this way! As for the pictures, well they are still in my phone but I will put them on here sometime this week!

I'm Back People!
Yes, after a 1 week absence I'm back to Kuwait and the blogging world! Last week I was on a business trip to Saudi and if you guys wanna know how it went, then you should comment on this posting! If I have enough comments saying "yes" then I will post about what happened! Other than that I know some of you would ask, "Why didn't you blog when you were there?" Well that's because the hotel didn't offer internet with their rooms and if you wanted to connect to the internet you'd have to use a Dial-Up connection and pay for every minutes!

I just have to say that I miss the world of blogging and I was quite surprised to read some of the things that occurred while I was gone! Especially that blogging was in the newspapers and all! I'm also shocked at to seeing *@@* Nooni leave!

I hope everyone is ready for quizzes now that I'm back! :oP
