H3 Off-road Event

Posted by Mark

H3

There is a Hummer H3 Ride & Drive event on the 26th and 27th of this month. It’s an off-road event where people will be allowed to take the H3 out for a test drive on a professional course. The event is by invite only so I am once again trying to get myself an invite. The Mardi Gras event is tonight btw, hopefully I can take pictures. When I first saw the H3 last April at the showroom I thought it was ugly but now that I see it on the streets the design is growing on me. I think black is my favorite color on it.

Anyway I will try to get more info on this H3 event since I think its being organized by Alghanim Automotive who are my sponsors.

Johnny Rockets Salhiya Warning

Posted by Mark

milkshake

A friend of mine had three of his sisters and one his friends get food poisoning at Johnny Rockets on Friday. They all just had milkshakes and later ended up in the hospital. So its better to stay away from the Salhiya branch milkshakes unless you want to get food poisoning to.

American Inventor

Posted by Mark

I have been watching a new show lately called American Inventor and although I am up to episode 4 so far I am not sure if I like it or hate it. The program is a reality show where people come and present their inventions to 4 judges who decide if their ideas are worth qualifying to the next round. So far the majority of the inventions that have qualified have been really crap and thats what I hate about the show the most. The good thing about the show is that it can be really funny sometimes since some of the inventions people have been presenting are really incredibly stupid. I am going to watch a couple of more episodes and see how things go, hopefully they will get better.

Tip of the day

Dogs can not get salmonella from raw chicken. A dog’s stomach is much more acidic than ours, so they have a lot more protection.

Cute or Evil?

Posted by Mark

Belgian Shepherd

The other morning I was looking for my PSP which was on the charger and I couldn’t find it so I figured Nataly might have taken it to work or something. Then while I was about to leave for work I found my PSP with Geo my dog! It seems he found my PSP tucked into its soft cushion case on the table and mistook it for one of his toys and took it down to his play area where he was busy chewing the case. Luckily the PSP was fine and after wiping Geo’s drool from the case it was also unharmed.

Today morning I had my ipod sitting on my foof pod on my Mac which sits on the floor and I was busy copying songs onto it when all of a sudden I hear a bang and Geo running off. Turns out he was playing with my iPod and it fell onto the floor. No harm done and I continue to copy songs. Finally I was about leave and I took my ipod and I was looking for my foof case and I couldn’t find it. At first I again figured Nat took it because she sometimes uses it for her digital camera but I noticed her camera was still on the table. Then it hit me, it was with Geo, thats why he ran away! So I went downstairs and I was right, Geo was sitting there chewing my foof pod.

Its hard to get angry at Geo because he can be really cute. In the mornings for example he usually wakes me up before my alarm by climbing onto my bed and licking my face so that I could take him down for his morning walk. Its cute but if the last time I took him down at night was 10PM that means he comes and wakes me up at 6:30AM which isn’t cute anymore. It seems he can only hold his bladder for around 8 hours so if I am too lazy to take him down right before I sleep at 12 I usually pay for it by having him wake me up super early in the morning.

Yesterday night I finally realized how much he had grown. When you live with the dog 24 hours a day its hard to notice how much he has developed but yesterday I finally noticed. I was playing with him in his play area when I noticed this small hole in one of the large boxes he has. I had cut out that hole back when I first got Geo so he could pass through it while playing but looking at the hole now I can’t imagine how he fit in it. He can barely fit his head in it now and that made me realize that Geo really has grown since we got him back in February and I can’t wait till he grows even more..

The Fountain

The Fountain

Wow this movie looks like its going to be just fucking amazing. Its by the director Darren Aronofsky’s (Pi, Requiem for a Dream) so you know its going to be weird as hell but from the look of the trailer it looks like its going to be the weirdest shit he’s done so far. I can’t wait till the movie comes out, its just really weird.

Papa Johns

Papa Johns

I tried Papa Johns pizza for the first time yesterday and it was really amazing. What everyone has been saying about Papa Johns is true, they do make the best pizza in Kuwait. I really really liked it a lot and I loved the pizza dips they gave with the pizza. They don’t deliver to Salmiya which sucks because it means I have to drive to Jabriya and pick it up but its worth it. If you want to try them out you can call them on 827272. I had the Little Italy pizza which has mushrooms, oregano, black olives, pepperoni and Italian sausages except I ordered it without the sausages.

Movie Review: Waiting…

Posted by Mark

Waiting Movie

Two days ago I watched the movie Waiting… which stars a few of my favorite actors including Ryan Reynolds (Two Guys and a Girl), Anna Faris (Scary Movie) and Luis Guzm├ín (Pachanga in Carlito’s Way). The movie talks about a group of friends working at a restaurant who are all bored and want something better in their lives, may it be a girl, a promotion or a better career. Its one of those movies thats very entertaining to watch but just doesn’t really have a beginning or an end. It reminded me a lot of the movie Empire Records except those guys were working at a music store and these guys at a restaurant.

This movie in a way is also educational, you learn for example never to piss off your waiter. Seriously, once you see this movie you might never eat at a restaurant again so be warned. Its a funny movie with a lot of silly moments but with a pace that is calm and peaceful like The Station Agent. It was fun to watch and thats why I am giving it a 4 out of 5.
