Geo it seems has a thing for red colored ethernet cables. Yesterday I realized one of the access points at home wasn’t working and when I checked the cable I found it had been bitten through. The ethernet cable I had used for it was red. So I went to the other side of the room to get another red cable that I used to use with my old clamshell ibook and to my surprise that was also bitten through. All the other cables surrounding the red ones (blue, grey and yellow) were not damaged only the 2 red cables in 2 different parts of the room were bitten through. Its very strange but now I know not to use red cables anymore.
My MacBook is in my U Shop We Ship mailbox. My MacBook arrived there today after they had already sent out this weeks shipment. If it was Aramex I would have had to wait until their next scheduled shipment but since this is U Shop We Ship I chose the option “Ship Now” and my package is now going to be shipped today. Can’t wait till I get it.
Ok, so I am like 1 position away from an iPod nano. The Toot design competition is going to end on the 15th and I am currently in like 3rd place. I need to be in 2nd place to get that nano so take a second and go vote for me. In return, Nat will pose naked with the Nano. Sounds like a good deal? Nat doesn’t seem to think so… Ok seriously now if I win the $50 voucher I will probably put it towards the purchase of these Campers shoes I have had my eyes on. If I get the nano Nat will probably take it since her iPod shuffle is busted.
Hmmm maybe its actually better I win the voucher.. (Nat made me delete this).

Some people are now reporting that their MacBooks have started changing color which is really messed up. I mean before I was worried about the overheating problem but now I am worried about this discoloration. Now I am trying to figure out if I should cancel my order or not. So far there have only been 1 set of pictures which 1 person took but its blurry which is always fishy. Will wait a day and see how this progresses and then decide if I should cancel my order and wait a bit. [Link]
This is extremely frustrating. Orignally I was told by Amazon they would ship my MacBook on the 15th of June. I was then told my MacBook would instead ship earlier on the 9th of June and as compensation (don’t ask its amazon) they upgraded my shipping to next day. Now I am being told my MacBook is going to ship on June 20th and as compensation I was given a $30 gift voucher. Amazon is being very nice with me but fuck I want my MacBook!
Today morning we woke up early to take Geo to the dog beach. There were 5 other dogs there today and Geo was the youngest amongst them and also the smallest size wise. All the other dogs were bigger then Geo and they spent most of the time bullying him around. There was this really cool Great Dane that was just 1 year old but like twice the size of Geo. At one point he was running towards me and it’s just the freakiest thing. I wasn’t worried he was going to attack me or anything; I was just worried he was going to run in to me, it would be like getting hit by a truck. He was really cute and I think he gave Geo the hardest time. Geo swam for the first time today but only for a few seconds. Last week he spent most of the time jumping around in the water but today we went deeper and he managed to paddle a bit before he looked like he was starting to drown which at that point I decided to carry him back to the shallow end. I didn’t get a tan since we only spent an hour at the beach but I think by the end of summer I should get some color.
Urgh, according to Amazon my MacBook should ship out today. I preordered the MacBook on May 23rd and have been waiting ever since then. I even have overnight shipping which means once it ships out today it should arrive to my mailbox tomorrow but my order is still open and there is no sign of it shipping. The suspense is killing me!!
Well maybe not famous but my picture is in like two newspapers today. The pictures are from the KREA event and show me accepting one of the awards. So far I am in Kuwait Times and Al-Anbaa newspapers don’t know if I am in any other ones. I will be signing autographs at Virgin Megastore tonight from 6-7PM and you can also have your picture taken with me for a small fee :D
I just got my Body Groom today from U Shop We Ship. It arrived to my mailbox in the States on the 2nd and it got delivered to me today in Kuwait which is the 6th. Thats 4 days to get from the US to Kuwait but it also included a Sunday which is a day off, so its usually should take 3 days.
I am very satisfied so far. The most impressive part is the fact that I paid for my package using Knet while the package was in the US. This also got me a 2% discount which is not much but better then no discount. My MacBook still hasn’t shipped from Amazon since they still don’t have it in stock but I just changed the shipping address to U Shop We Ship. The reason for that is USWS can clear my laptop from customs AND I can pay them the customs fee online with my Knet card. Thats very convenient and I love it. I am now going to start using USWS as my primary US mailbox and keep Aramex as secondary for my magazines. [Link]
FYI: Package arrived today morning at 10AM to Kuwait according to the tracking info. Delivery guy dropped it at my office around 12:30PM.. 2 and a half hours later. Thats something not possible with Aramex.
