Toyota FJ Cruiser in Kuwait

Post by Mark

Toyota FJ Cruiser

While leaving home today to come in to work I saw a 2007 yellow Toyota FJ Cruiser parked at one of the second hand car dealers in Salmiya (next to Mr Baker, near Kababji and Shaab Park). I thought these cars were coming out in 2007…

Update: Here is a picture of the FJ I took on my way back home [Picture]

Update 2: I called the guy on 5629429, he is asking KD13,000 for it.

Another fucked up crash picture

Post by Mark

Two weeks ago I posted pictures of a “fucked up crash” that happened on the Gulf Road. Well my pictures were taken after the road had been cleared and the cars put aside. Today while browsing the Q8speed website I found a picture which was taken very soon after the crash happened. Might be too graphic for some people. [Link]

Buy World Cup Tickets

Post by Mark

I knew they were going to be expensive but I didn’t know they were going to be THAT expensive. I am not even talking about the $21,000 ticket for a skybox seat in the final game I am talking about ticket prices to regular games for example the cheapest ticket to the Argentine Vs Netherland game is like $1,400! I need to start making more money… [Link]

Laundry Guide to Common Care Symbols

Post by Mark

This is a guide to laundry hieroglyphics. I always found them difficult to understand, for example I used to think the Do Not Bleach icon meant Do Not Iron, now I know I was wrong. [Link]

The whole city in a single notebook

Post by Mark

Moleskine City

I have been using Moleskines ever since I first saw one with Nibaq. I usually buy the plain pocket sized notebook and its actually the only version I have ever bought since I never needed anything else until I saw the Moleskine City notebook. The Moleskine City notebook is made for travelling and they come in various city editions. I want the Montreal and New York editions but they don’t come out till 2007 so for now I am probably going to order the Amsterdam one. I think these notebooks would be cooler if shared amongst friends. So I could travel to Amsterdam, mark my notes down and then pass the notebook to my friend when he travels to Amsterdam. That way he could get some tips from me and then fill in his own notes. It could be really useful. [Link]

Geo learned a new trick

Post by Mark

geo fence

Today Geo learned a new trick.. a trick I would rather he hadn’t learned. Geo today figured out how to open the doors around the house. The whole house is dog safe (ie nothing for Geo to grab a hold of and chew) except for the art room where I have all my magazines and tons of other stuff lying around unprotected on the shelves. Now that he knows how to open the door I need to start locking it from the outside. Hopefully he won’t figure out how to pick locks anytime soon. I think this weekend I am going to shoot a video of Geo doing some tricks, he has gotten really good at them.
