I’ve been searching for new sneakers recently but was disappointed with my usual brand’s new collection. So, I decided to give Nike iD a shot. For those of you who don’t know what Nike iD is, its basically a website for Nike that allows you to choose from a collection of sneakers and then you could customize the colors anyway you want. I managed to create 2 sneakers (pictured above) which I liked but I couldn’t buy because it turns out they require a US visa card for payment. Hopefully once U Shop We Ship launch their virtual Visa card I will order them. The prices are very decent also, a pair of the sneakers above which are customized by me cost only $60. Try it out.

I think I finally found a replacement for TextEdit and its called WriteRoom. This is how the creators describe it:
For Mac users who enjoy the simplicity of a typewriter, but live in the digital world. WriteRoom is a full screen, distraction free, writing environment. Unlike standard word processors that focus on features, WriteRoom is just about you and your text.
You set the software to full screen and thats it, you are suddenly in a different place. You could also change the background color to blue and the text to white and pretend you are Doogie Howser. Whatever colors you go with, the most important thing is this software is free! [Link]
Cool pictures of the Brazilian soccer players in their locker room. The site the pictures are hosted on looks like a gay site though. [Link]

Me: I would like to place an order
Hardees: Is this Mark?

Hardees: Roast beef N Chedder combo with crispy fries, Chili hot dog sandwich and a cookie?
Hardees: Total is KD2.350 and he will be there in 35 minutes
Me: Thanks bye
There was a fire again in one of the trash bins behind my building. This time though there was this one Egyptian worker trying to put the fire out. First he came with a fire extinguisher and it didn’t really do much. Then he went and got a shovel and started throwing sand at it which excited some of the kids who joined in by throwing rocks at the fire. 20 minutes later the guy was able to put out the fire surprisingly, I think he must have been the reason the fire started since there is no other explanation to why he spent 20 minutes throwing sand into a fire in this hot weather. 10 minutes after the fire was put out the fire trucks arrived, fashionably late as usual..

I was flipping through some blogs when I landed on Flippa X’s post on Burger Boutique. The post opened up my appetite and 30 minutes later I was at Burger Boutique having dinner. I thought that was pretty interesting because I don’t do that with magazines. I never read a food article in a magazine and then acted upon it. With blogs I have done it a bunch of times already. Although this might sound strange but I think the reason is I find blogs more credible then magazines, or should I say more real..
