Legalized chaos!

I've been stuck at home for the past two days... unwilling to leave the security of my home's walls for the ruthless foam jungle out there. You can call me a coward if you like but I learned my lesson exactly a year ago... I actually had to work on National Day, so the morning drive was fine but on my way home is where it all took place!

It usually takes me 12 minutes to get home from work. I pass through a side road off the Sheraton roundabout which I usually cross in under 2 minutes. I got caught in the middle of an all out foam war for a good hour! That's not the bad part... at the end of the jam, two cars were parked horizontally on the road. In my frustration as I was avoiding them to get the EFF outta there, I got my car scratched! I had just gotten my car a month earlier, so I was sooo bummed out! To make matters even worse, a couple of meters away were three cops leaning on their cop cars watching all this unfold! I was thinking to myself ARREST/SHOOT SOMEBODY DAMMIT!

Happy National and Liberation day Kuwait!

Got myself an HD camcorder from the US. My older camcorder is a Sony and records to Digital 8 tapes... I thought it would be good to upgrade to a flash-based model and since we're in the high-def era might as well spend the extra bucks and get an HD camera. This thing is AWESOME! Video records in full 1920x1080 and is crystal clear... as with all Canon's, the colors a brilliant. Definitely a good buy!

This was at the m&ms store in Orlando... they definitely don't have the Middle East version of Illustrator :P

Wartime included!

Before I left for Orlando I stopped by Beirut for a couple of days. I just love that place! The spirit of the city is just incredible. We're very resilient people, with cafe's open 7 days a week, wartime included! ;)

The happiest place on earth!

Just got back last week from Disney World in Orlando... I had a blast! The last time I was down there was in 1997. I was kind of hoping I'd go in 2007 to make it a 10 year thing, but I guess I'll settle for every 13 years :P
