Updates on Nat

Post by Mark

She called me up at around 1AM telling me one of the cab drivers she was talking to earlier in the day called her and told her that drivers found a diversion around one of the roads they bombed yesterday. He told her if she wants he could take her to Syria for $500. I told her it was her decission to make and that I was half asleep and wanted to go back to sleep. She told me she was going to do it and the driver was going to come pick her up at 11AM, he is coming from Syria to pick her up.

So a few minutes ago I message her asking her what she is doing and if she is packed yet since it was nearly 10AM and I know she leaves things till the last minute. She messages me telling me she is at the Syrian border which pissed me off. I called her up and told her this is no time to joke around but she tells me she IS at the Syrian border. Turns out the driver picked her up at 8AM and when I called her up she had just crossed the Lebanese border and about to enter Syria.

Her cellphone signal was weak so I couldn’t talk to her much but I will post updates when I get them.

update: she crossed the Syrian border

update 2: Nat messaged me at 1:40PM telling me she was at the airport and to call her. I call her up and she sounded a bit freaked. She told me the airport is over crowded and she can barely move. She told me she couldn’t even find a trolley to put her bag on. She was also feeling dizzy since she had been in the car since 8AM and there was no AC so her head was spinning everytime she stood up. Her flight is at 9PM and she can’t find a magazine stand or anything nearby. She is resting now before she goes looking for the Jazeera Airways stand.

Strange Station

Post by Mark

Today morning on my way to work I was searching the radio frequencies when I landed on 100.5 FM. It was playing like an old black and white movie or something, really strange. What station is this? I recorded a bit with my phone so you can here hear it. [Video]

update: Turns out its the KTV sound channel [Link]

Nats Great Escape

Post by Mark

So Nats got a flight on Jazeera Airways tomorrow that leaves from Damascus. Since morning she has been trying to find a cab that will take her to Syria and she finally called me 15 minutes ago telling me she got one and tomorrow 5AM she will leave her house. Seemed like a good plan until 5 minutes ago Israel bombed her escape route. Now she is trying to find out if there is another route she can take.

Puppets Who Kill

Post by Mark

Puppets who kill

Puppets Who Kill has to be the strangest TV show I have watched in a while. The show is a combination of puppetry and real people and the story is about these four homicidal puppets living in a halfway house with a clueless human social worker. I only watched one episode so far and it was extremely funny and even had a sex scene between a puppet and a real person which I found… weird. The whole show is just “different” like that. If you can get a hold of it from Amazon or Torrents then do so.

What about us?

CNN Biased

The screenshot above is from the CNN main page. The area which I have highlighted in yellow is where they mention an Israeli woman and her grandson got killed and they have it as an important point. Yet they don’t mention the fact that over 60 people in Lebanon (including 2 Kuwaitis) have also been killed. I don’t mind CNN being biased but they shouldn’t make it that obvious…
