Christmas Tree Shopping

Post by Mark

trees

Went Christmas tree shopping tonight. Found a gorgeous Nordmann Fir tree which we ended up getting. The place I went to just got the trees two days ago, he had a couple of cheap Norway Spruce trees but the majority of them where Nordmann Fir. I forgot what the place is called but its up in Al-Rai, on the 4th ring road where all the plant stores are located. He has a couple on display outside but the rest are all inside. Prices range from KD45 and up, depending on the size of the tree.

Kuwaiti Cop Raving

Post by Mark

Someone just sent me this link which shows a Kuwaiti cop dancing with a bottle of whisky in his hand. Notice how many topics involving alcohol this week? It must be a sign. [Video]

update: here is a link to another older video of a girl dressed in a copy uniform and dancing. [Link]

update 2: it seems Iraqi police can do it better (thanks moayad) [Video]

New Years out of town

Post by Mark

Just booked a flight for me and Nat to Beirut. Will be leaving on the 27th and coming back January 1st. I booked with Jazeera Airways and was expecting not to find any places but it seems the current political situation in Lebanon has led to a lot of cancellations. Last time I celebrated New Years in Lebanon was in 2000 so it should be fun.

Agility used to be PWC

I was going to post about this for awhile now but never got around to it. Doesn’t matter though, Brand New has a write up about PWC’s rebranding into Agility. It was done by Siegel+Gale and I heard it cost them 1.5 million dollars. [Link]

Jack Bauer’s Bag

Post by Mark

Jack Bauer Bag

I just ordered two Jack Bauer bags from Amazon. The Jack Bauer bag is the military messenger bag Jack Bauer uses on the show. I was looking for a nice sized bag in which I could dump all my stuff in and was aiming for a Freitag but every time I try to order one from them I can never decide on which color or design. In the end I decided to go for the Jack Bauer bag since it costs just KD7 and figured it would be fun to have. [Link]

bonus: here is a really cool 24 photo [Picture]
