New Johnny Rockets Branch

Posted by Mark

Johnny Rockets Kuwait City

Yesterday I had lunch at the newly opened Johnny Rockets branch right across the street from Al-Oustoura and Salhiya Complex in Kuwait City. I have to say its the best designed branch so far.. they actually have movable tables and chairs! Finally you can visit Johnny Rockets if you are a group larger then 4. When you go there though make sure you visit the bathroom beforehand since they don’t have a bathroom in the restaurant and you need to walk over to one of the neighboring malls if you want to use one. If you want to know how to find the place, go to the Sheraton roundabout in Kuwait City, then take the exit towards JW Marriott Hotel which would put Sheraton and KFC on your left hand side. Then take your first right which would take you to the front entrance of Salhiya Complex. You should see Valet Parking guys waiting there plus Al-Oustoura and Chopard on your left hand side. This would put Johnny Rockets on your right hand side but you won’t be able to see it but its there. Park your car (preferably in the underground parking over there). Then, if you are standing right in-front of Al-Oustoura start walking away from it and you should hit Johnny Rockets after like 25 meters or something. Here is the area on google maps. [Map]

A Camera Made for Pictures Shot in the Dark

A point-and-shoot with 3200 ISO, sounds promising. If I see some cool sample shots at the high ISO’s I might just get one for myself.. although I am not a Fuji fan.. [Link]

The race is on

Posted by Mark

There is a 50 meter running race thats been organized by a few of us here at my agency. I don’t know who’s idea it was but its a silly idea that everyone went a long with for the fuck of it. We will be 6 guys of various sizes and fitness competing in this race. I think I am the most unfit one between them all but I am the tallest between them. Back in elementary and middle school I used to be the fastest 50 meter runner (I have the cups and medals to prove it!) so I have experience or something. The location of the race is unknown but the timing is sometime today. I still think I am fast like I was when I was a kid so I believe I should kick everyones ass… or at-least try my best not to come out last. It should be fun.

Update: At the start of our lunch break we all headed down to the underground parking across the street. We decided we would race from one walk to the other wall on the opposite side. I fucking came last two times out of two races! I guess its a good thing, I used to think I was still as fast as I used to be and now I know I am not. It was an awakening.

Slow Rescue

fire fire

We usually hear a lot of fire engine sirens outside my office since there is a fire-station 3 buildings away. Today though the sirens sounded really close so I looked outside the window and there were 3 fire trucks outside our office building and a little white smoke coming out of the building across the street. Everyone in my office gathered around the windows excited that they were going to watch the firemen put out the fire live in front of us. 15 minutes later (no bullshit) the firefighters were still downstairs not doing anything. Actually thats not true, there were 2 guys putting on their firemen overalls and boots.. shouldn’t they do that before they get to the fire?

Finally a larger ladder truck arrives and parks in front of the building. 10 minutes later the firemen are still running hoses and setting things up, the little white smoke coming out of the window by now had turned into thick black smoke coming out of many windows and the roof. Many of the employees who had gathered around the windows hoping to see some firefighting action had left out of boredom, it had been 25 minutes since the firemen arrived and not one drop of water had been sprayed onto the fire. 30 minutes after they arrived two firefighters got on the ladder and started spraying through the window. 10 minutes later the fire was put out and they left.

I don’t know if this is normal or what they did was right or wrong but I just find the fact that it took them 30 minutes to start spraying water on a fire that is 2 buildings away from their fire-station a bit too long. Yeah the fire was put out very quickly but after how much damage was done?

Lebanese on The Apprentice

Posted by Mark

Seems there is a Lebanese guy on the show The Apprentice this season. Tarek Saab, a 27-year-old Maronite Catholic and the son of a Lebanese father and an American mother, lived in war-torn Lebanon as a child before he and his family came to the U.S. and moved into public housing projects in New Bedford, Mass.
