Marzouq Lost

Post by Mark

I was waiting for Marzouq to post about this but he hasn’t still so I am going to post about it first… although it is HIS story.

Today I got an email from Marzouq and he sounded really pissed and depressed. He was vague in his email but it was something about losing a really important bid. I was like fuck, what was he bidding for? I figured something related to work, maybe he was trying to get the rights to Google Kuwait or some fast food chain or something. Anyway a few hours later he gives me a call.

We are talking and he tells me about this charity auction that took place in the US and how they were auctioning off a variety of items like electronics, snowmobiles etc.. I was thinking he probably tried bidding on a limited edition motorbike and he lost. Then he tells me that one of the items they were auctioning off was the chance to appear on an episode of 24 next season! Whoever won the auction would have a role on the show in season 7 and would also get to meet the whole cast and then leave with the episode script autographed by everyone. So I was like ok what happened??

Turns out he had a friend at the auction who was bidding in his place. He told his friend to bid max up to $10,000. Turns out though he had a tough competitor, some wife of a millionaire who according to Marzouqs friend came up to him and told him she wanted to have Jack Bauers babies. She kept bidding against him until past his $10,000 limit. In the end he increased his max bid till he hit around $16,000 but she kept bidding until in the end she won the auction for $21,000.

Its such an insane thing, imagine, a blogger from Kuwait would have been on 24. I would have been really jealous if he had won, but it sucks he didn’t. I know how much it would have meant to him being on the show. Anyway I think he is going to be pissed now because I posted about HIS experience before he did!

This reminds me of when King Abdullah appeared on Startrek.

update: Here is a link to Marzouqs post with more details! [Link]

Termignoni Exhaust Pipes

termignoni

Marzouq just posted about the great service he has been having with Tristar so I figured I would post about what happened with me. Last Saturday I passed by and ordered Termignoni carbon racing silencers for my motorbike and I was told I would receive them in 2 to 3 weeks. Yesterday I got a phone call telling me to pass by and pick up my silencers since they had arrived! I called the Tristar garage today morning so that tomorrow they can pass by and pick up my bike so they can install the silencers. Really great service. Also I found out that anyone can join their bike club not only people who purchased bikes from them, so if you are a biker and are looking for weekly activities give them a call.

Jujus Cupcake

juju

Today I got a long rectangular box with a dozen cupcakes from a new place that opened up in Fanar called Juju’s Cupcake. All the cupcakes looked stunning and within seconds they disappeared. Everyone just wanted one. I don’t have any idea on the prices and although the box has a website address, jujuscupcake.com, the website is still not up. If you are interested though you can call them on 5722999.

Dexter

Dexter

Just finished watching the first season of Dexter and it was really cool. The best part has to be the fact that the main actor is Michael Hall who played the gay brother on my favorite TV show, Six Feet Under. In Dexter he plays a Miami police forensics expert during the day but at night he is a serial killer who goes around killing criminals who he believes have escaped justice. Its such an incredible and very strange show, I so can’t wait for the second season.

Something went on in the back seat

Post by Mark

cat fur

The other day I posted about how I took the roof off the Wrangler and how cats were coming in and napping inside. Well today I went down to the car to find a ton of fur on the back seat. Seems either two cats were fighting or humping in the back seat…

Paraphilia

Post by Mark

A friend sent me a link to the wikipedia entry for the word “Paraphilia” with a simple instruction “You gotta check the list at the end”. So I scrolled down and I didn’t know what I was looking for until I found the strangest thing. Its the “List of paraphilias” with some really strange entries, here are some of my favorites:

Acousticophilia: sexual arousal from certain sounds
Aquaphilia: arousal from water and/or in watery environments, including bathtubs or swimming pools
Coprophilia: sexual attraction to (or pleasure from) feces
Emetophilia: sexual attraction to vomit
Gynophagia: sexual attraction toward eating woman (eating as in food)
Nasophilia: sexual attraction to the sight, touch of human noses
Retifism: sexual arousal from shoes
Sitophilia: sexual arousal from food
Spectrophilia: sexual attraction to ghosts

For the full and very enjoyable list click [Here]
