Pizza Italia

Was talking to a friend of mine and he was surprised to hear the Pizza Italia is still open. So incase you guys didn’t know, Pizza Italia IS still open. I know of 2 branches, one in Bayan next to McDonalds, and one in Hawalli nearly opposite Mouhalab Mall. There phone numbers are 538-7798 and 266-7711. They deliver, the Large sized pizza with everything on it (called the God Father) is for only KD1.500

Mind Block

Post by Mark

I have been sitting infront of the computer now for 1 hour just trying to think of something and nothing is coming out. I think I have blown a fuse because of the overload with work. Since the creative director left the agency, my responsibilities have trippled, I am growing white hair and I never have time to think anymore. Awhile ago I found out they want me to come in on Friday even, which I won’t do ofcourse. Friday is MY fucking day off, its bad enough we don’t have a 2 day weekend and I am not gonna give them my Friday, even if its only this one time, I will not give it up. I need a mother fucking long vacation…

Update: Just asked for a raise… it won’t happen..

World Trade Center Survivors

Post by Mark

An article on WIRED brings to light the sad truth about the people who survived the World Trade Center attacks. The majority of the survivors were the ones who ignored officials’ orders to stay put… “According to the engineers, use of elevators in the early phase of the evacuation, along with the decision to not stay put, saved roughly 2,500 lives.” [Link]

Kuwait in The Onion!

Post by Mark

We are in The Onion!

KUWAIT CITY—In light of the country’s recent decision to allow women to vote and hold public office, observers around the world have noted that Kuwait appears to have discovered the fairer sex. “The boys in Kuwait are really taking notice of how much the girls have changed over the country’s long political winter,” said Fouad Ajami, an expert in Arab affairs. “They’re no longer shyly avoiding women they’re not related to or clumsily shooting them for not wearing veils in public.” Ajami added that he was not entirely surprised by Kuwait’s discovery, given its long history of teasing women, calling them names, and stoning them to death for being unclean.

The New Pajero

Post by Mark

new pajero

Some shots of the new Mitsubishi pickup truck have appeared online. Mitsubishi usually bases the design of the Pajero on the pickup truck so we could be looking at the new Pajero SUV in these pictures. I think the front looks a lot like the Murano. [Link]

Marina FM Logo

marina fm

Is THIS the Marina FM logo? There was a huge pitch for it by like every agency in Kuwait plus one from Bahrain. I sent in 3 logos and 2 of them made the final cut but in the end another agency won, I think it was Memec. But I was expecting the winning logo to be something really cool, this one is just sad (no offence to the designer). [Link]

Smallest, Coolest Apartments

Post by Mark

This site makes me really jealous. They have a contest where they try to find the “smallest, coolest apartments”. Some of the stuff is really good and it depresses me to see them do so much with such little space while I can’t figure out what to do with my huge place. I am terrible when it comes to interior design, I should probably just steal some ideas from them and get it over with… [Link]
