Geo is fine

geo belgian shepherd

I have gotten a few emails from a few people who were wondering how Geo (my dog) is doing and how come I haven’t been posting about him.

Well Geo is fine, he is around a year and a half old now. He is still extremely playful and hyper and is still on the BARF diet. The reason I haven’t been posting much about him is because not many people are interested in reading about another persons dog.

I do want another dog though and it would have to be either a Saint Bernard or an Irish Wolfhound. Problem is I need a backyard with a garden which I currently don’t have meaning no second dog for now…

Fan death

Posted by Mark

Fan death is an urban legend that originated in South Korea, but has since spread to other countries in the Far East. The belief is that an electric fan, if left running overnight in a closed room, can result in the death (by suffocation, poisoning, or hypothermia) of those inside. This belief also extends to air conditioners and the fans in cars. When the air conditioner or fan is on in a car, some people are apt to leave their car windows open a crack to avoid “fan death.” Fans manufactured and sold in Korea are equipped with a timer switch that turns them off after a set number of minutes, which users are frequently urged to set when going to sleep with a fan on.

Javelin spears long jumper

Posted by Mark

I heard about this on the news yesterday and I just watched it on YouTube. Really freaky…

French long jumper Salim Sdiri was speared by a javelin in a freak accident at the Rome Golden League meeting on Friday. Sdiri was hit by the javelin which had been launched by Finland’s Tero Pitkamaki at the other side of the arena at the Olympic Stadium. [News]

Bugatti Perfume

bugatti perfume

They are selling the limited edition Bugatti Perfume at The Avenues for a price of only KD975. The picture above is of the gold plated, 400 piece limited edition version but the one at The Avenues is the chrome plated edition with 4,000 pieces world wide. So one more time in case you think I mistyped, its KD975 for a bottle of perfume thats Nine, Seven and Five!

Sonos Live

I’ve had my eye on the Sonos digital music system for awhile now but I never bought it because I simply don’t listen to music at home. Today while I was at Alghanim Electronics I saw the device in person for the first time and it actually looks as pretty as in the pictures.

I don’t know how long they’ve been selling it for since I don’t frequent Alghanim, but the Sonos was priced pretty expensive at KD436. The newer and larger bundle on Amazon costs only KD288.

Finally, Internet!

Posted by Mark

I haven’t had Internet since yesterday morning and it sucked! Last week I upgraded my connection with Qualitynet and I was on 2MB downstram and 512KB upstream set up. It was a very fast connection but it kept getting disconnected.

Well it seems the problem lies with my phone line. According to an engineer who called me up from Qualitynet, my line can handle something around 2.4MB down but only 288KB up so he had to downgrade my account down to 256kb up and 640kb down. It sucks since I got used to the 2MB connection but at least my connection is stable now. Tomorrow they are sending someone over to check the lines in my building and see if there is a way to solve it. I hope there is.

I just watched the trailer to 1-18-08 and it looks like its going to be one hell of a movie. I have no clue what its about but based on the trailer I would say War of the Worlds meets Armageddon meets Godzilla meets Blair Witch Project. [Trailer]

Oh and you can visit the website but it will just confuse you more. [Link]

Review: BR31 Crunchy Shakes

Posted by Mark

crunchy shake

Baskin Robbins have a new milkshake called the Crunchy Shake. What makes it different from the regular shakes is that they blend a waffle cone with it so that while you are sipping your drink you get to taste the tiny bits of waffles. In theory it sounds good but my experience wasn’t.

First you get to choose three different flavors of ice cream for your shake. That is the fun part since you have a large variety to choose from but I went with the safe route and just chose chocolate mousse for my drink. The employee then took my scoops, dropped them into a blender with milk and a large waffle cone and then turned it on.

The flavor of the drink wasn’t that bad, the waffle cone bits actually do make a difference. The problem I had with my drink was that it was too liquidi, it was as if the employee put too much milk and not enough ice cream. That ruined the shake for me and after drinking half of the cup it just became really gross. I don’t know if this is how the shake was meant to be but I didn’t like it. Final score is a 2 out of 5.
