FML really does crack me up! I even have the application on my phone. FML Concept is as follows: An anecdote always starts with "Today" and ends with "FML"
Here are some of the funny FML's:
Today, I got back from Ireland after a 4 hour "random" bag and body search, right after security checked my passport coincidently. I'm half Iranian, but born and raised in england. I got fired from my job for being 4 hours late to work. So now I'm an unemployed "terrorist." FML
Today, my boyfriend and I went to an amusement park. Although roller coasters scare me to death, my boyfriend convinced me to ride one with him. Right after the ride ended, I puked my guts out in front of everyone. My boyfriend decided this would be a great opportunity to tell me we're over. FML
Today, my crush came over to talk to me. I tried to act cool by spinning my pencil and doing tricks with it while we talked. It impressed him, until I lost control. The flying pencil ended up jabbing him in the face. FML
Today, I let my friend borrow my cell phone. He logged onto my facebook application and posted a status saying, "I think I might be gay." When I found out, it was full of a bunch of comments including one from my former high school teacher saying, "I'm not surprised." FML wahahahah
Today, it's my birthday and my sweet boyfriend waited until it was midnight to dump me. He continued to explain how he was with me not because he loved me but because he felt sorry for me. FML
Today, someone posted a Tweet that said, "I miss her, and she'll never know." I replied back, "No one cares." Turns out he was talking about his mother who died a year earlier. FML
Today, I was on Facebook trying to look at the boy I like's profile. Instead of typing his name into the search box, I typed it as my status and pressed enter. I was on my phone so I couldn't delete it. FML
Today, on my first day as a taxi driver, I took a man 200 miles away from my area, feeling happy about the price of the fare. He ran away without paying, leaving nothing but a bag of dirty clothes. FML
Today, my husband was playing Pokemon in bed. He hid the screen from himself and guessed the name of every pokemon encounter based on the sound of their cry. He got all 65 encounters right. This happens every night. FML
Today, my boyfriend's family isn't talking to me. Why? Because at a barbecue, my sister asked really loudly why my boyfriend's aunt looks so manly. I had to take her aside and explain that she used to be his uncle.Apparently it's a taboo subject. FML
Today, I got the hiccups during the funeral of my close friend. The family kicked me out for being disruptive.FML
Today, my friend put up the pictures from her birthday party yesterday. I'm conveniently cropped out of every single one. FML
Today, my boyfriend took me to a movie. Once we got to our seat he was leaning in to kiss me but then sneezed in my mouth. FML
Today, I came home from university and met my brother's girlfriend for the first time. I told my mom she seems really nice and cute. My mom replies, "Yes, she's like the daughter I never had." Did I mention I am her daughter? FML
Today, my friend decided to take a random picture of me and distort it with special effects. Well, the first one she chose was 'Alien'... my face didn't change a bit. FML
Today, my boss thought it would be funny to fake fire me. After ten minutes of begging, crying and pleading for my job back, he told me it was a joke. He recorded the whole thing and send it to every one he knows. FML
Today, I found out that my boyfriend is married to another woman. I decided I'd better let his wife know about his actions, but she didn't believe me because I was "too ugly" for him to have an affair with. FML
My mom bought a Barney costume for my sister's son and wants me to wear it on his birthday in 9 days, in front of family, close friends and a lot of females. Emphasis on A LOT.

Those stuff you see, forces you to judge some people , no matter how hard you try to justify it for them but deep down you keep wondering, , WHERE DID HE GET THIS FROM? Is there any system that really focuses on how did people get such things relating their annual income and their work nature to their belongings? is he taking a piece of "The Cake" that some people get to taste while others can't?
Lately, I've been busy with work and school , so I decided to dedicate only one day of the week to play soccer with some work mates. I really needed to buy soccer shoes, since I used to play soccer with my jogging shoes which always flies and lands on somebody's head when I kick.
So, I decided to visit one of the Co-op branches and buy crappy shoes for my one day soccer game.
I was shocked. I had to take a picture of what I saw and share it with you guys because I can’t stop thinking about it! PLEASE HELP !
The sign above the car says "Muraqib Al-furou3".
I tried hard not to judge this guy. But yeah let me state what was going through my mind so you can neglect what I have already thought of from your provided jusitifications "If any"
Some people would say:
1-He comes from a rich family: then why wouldn’t his family support him to get a proper job other than Muraqib?
2-He wants to depend on himself: for God sake , open your own business.
3-His work nature forces the government to pay him that much of money to prevent any possibility that he get bribed: I've seen people working in the Oil Sector having accesses on government money and they don’t make the amount that allows them to afford this kind of cars.
4-He did not buy it with cash money , it was a loan: YEAH RIGHT!
Come on, don’t get me wrong. I'm just wondering here.I mean no harm , and I apologize for this guy if he came across this post by any chance.
The question still remains: bribe? money laundry? or I missjudged him? knowing that I still did not completely judge him.
I never understood why some people love to hate. I never understood how can someone live his/her life with so much anger towards anyone. I never understood how a lot of people walk around everyday carrying so much negative energy. I find it extremely difficult to deal with such people; their company is just too depressing. These people; along with another group who just love to pick on everyone around them trying to put them down, are what I'd like to call haters.
If you have any of the "Haters" symptoms then I strongly recommend you go see a shrink. If your life revolves around harassing people and creating so much drama for them then, yes you have a problem, yes it is YOU, and no its not normal. Reality check: The person you hate on does not wake up in the morning thinking of you, unlike you they don't care about you and it's highly unlikely that they know you exist. Also, the person you hate on doesn't have a plan to destroy you. Believe it or not that person wishes you well; a permanent cure! One last thing, the person you hate on has a life beyond you, hard to believe I know since he/she is your only obsession. For the umpteenth time understand this and accept it "We Don't care."
Anyway, I already said that I'm feeling generous today and I will be fair with you haters and mention some of the many great advantages you bring to us. First, you guys are a great source of entertainment. You make us laugh, and that's always good. Second, having you around makes us appreciate the sanity we seem to underestimate most of the time. You also teach us a lesson about the greatness of forgiveness. We don't blame you; no it's all your mommy/daddy issues, all your low/high self esteem issues, and even your own messed up genes. Finally, you make our day when we see that your own sad schemes and plans backfires on you so tragically every time. Didn't you hear that karma is a bitch?
Haters, you do need to understand one thing. Even though you do have all these pluses, we still don't wish to have you in our life; directly or indirectly. We still have hope that you will vanish at some point. It's very clear that life is better without you, even you know it. I understand that you can't help but feel jealous, but I'm sorry shrinks are there for a reason. Get some therapy, seriously you need it!
Even though this post is about you, leave your comments to yourself. My generosity has limits, and I think this is as far as it goes. If you have anything bad to say then I say keep your comments to yourself and get a life instead. As for the rest of us, normal people, feel free to hate on them.

One of my oh-sooo-many-addictions, is CHIPS AND SALSA.
Once I start, I just can't stop. It's seriously addictive.
Now, the second best part about having chips and salsa is the SALSA!! or the dips in general. Normally, I dip the chips in either the salsa dip, or RANCH *drools*. its just so great.
Last week, after a busy long day full of meetings! I chilled by the pool, enjoyed the sunshine and ordered some chips. Nothing better than relaxing and eating.
The side dips for the chips were salsa and GUACAMOLE.
Confession: I HATE AVOCADO. I have no idea why? I just hate it. I always ask the waiters to remove avocado from everything I eat, specially when it comes to Japanese food.
Writing a post about it, clearly, I am having a guacamole love affair. It's soooooo satisfying!!!
It was devastatingly good. Devastating because I will now want this permanently and i'm not sure if I can keep up with the quite high calories in it. Damn.
So you'd like to make great guacamole?

Don’t you just hate people who drive below 80km on the left lane and don't budge even if you stick your front bumper up their car's ass?
Don't you just hate those douchebags who speed on the left lane and flicker you nonstop to move, but you refuse since you're on the speed limit?
Don't you just hate it when you're speeding on the left lane, obviously going over 120km, and another car enters your way, forcing you to brake like your life depended on it, ruining the speed-induced intensity and rush you've been gathering since you first put your foot on the pedal?
Don't you just hate it when for some unapparent reason everyone on the way to work isn't going over the speed of 80km, while you're in a hurry to get to a meeting that's in 5 minutes?
Don't you just hate it when you're circling the roundabout and some F@#KER enters, almost crashes into you and looks at you like it was your fault?? I WAS THERE FIRST YOU MOTHERF@%KER!
Don't you just hate people who signal left, but suddenly change their minds and go right?
Don’t you just hate it when people DON'T signal before turning, throwing you off and forcing you to brake real hard?
Don’t you just hate people who think they own the road?
Don’t you just hate those damn buggies doing wheelies on the middle of the road, forcing you to be extra careful not to run into them?
Don’t you just hate it when a car switches 3-4 lanes at once in order to enter an exit, causing you and the people around you to brake for their lives?
Don’t you just hate it when a minimum of 4 cars violently following 1 really crappy car with 2 girls who barely look good enough for my shoe?
Don't you just hate the persistence of a male driver following a female driver, signaling for her number as she tries her absolute best to ignore him and once she says NO he sees it as a sign of approval, thus following her all day long?
Don’t you just hate it when an Indian driver leans on your car (enam 3alaik or 3alaich) and you honk the horn and "respectfully" tell him it's OK, and he replies with a "it's your fault" hand sign?
Don’t you just hate it when you're driving to an important meeting and some douchebag follows you and starts revving his engine wanting to race? KILISH MU WAGTIK!
Don’t you just hate it when your speeding in traffic, turning left and right (tibitwin) and all of a sudden some Indian driver pops out of nowhere and throws your "Fast and Furious" rhythm off?

I recently learned what "Dekoor" is all about. I finally found the right word to describe what the majority of Kuwaities are turning into. I think the plural is "Dekorat"? I'm actually not sure. Anyway, I just wanted to get this off my chest; being a "Dekor" makes you not only pathetic but also a joke.
First of all, for you who aren't familiar with the term "Dekoor" I'll try to explain the best way I can. You know those people, who constantly talk about themselves and what they own and how all this make them so awesome? To clarify, "Dekoor" is the definition of an individual who tries so hard to get people's attention through a number of pathetic attempts such as talking about oneself's materialistic belongings, "Super powers", and even wealth.
How to be a "Dekoor"? The most obvious and popular method in the process of becoming a "Dekoor" is to simply make up stuff about yourself that you think will make you the object of everyone's envy. Whenever you strike a conversation make sure you mention your G5, your brand new limited and very pimped up edition lambo, and of course your vilas in every beach around the world. Extra points will be added if you say that your father owns a resturant or a country club!
If you don't wanna be too obvious then don't worry there are other ways!! If you're a girl then I say go to the nearest unauthentic bags store and load yourself with Hermés bags, and while you're at it get all the colors as well. When you're done, head out to the fakest Jewllery shop and get yourself a very fake Van Cleef and Arples earrings, necklaces, braclets, you know what just get the whole collection, so it goes perfectly with your fake Rolex, and Cartier love bracelet. You're still not yet the perfect "Dekoor", next step is the most crucial step of the process. The next step involves you sitting with your "friends", telling them all about your trips around the world and how much you love going to stores and buying very real and authentic accessories. When that's done, you can officially call yourself a "Dekoor".
If you want to learn more about becoming a "Dekoor", then I suggest you go to places where they're seen often like Salhiya, Raya, and most importanatly Exhibitions! If you want easy access to them, then I highly advise you to just declare your dedication to being a "Dekoor" and then you'll be automatically invited; they do come in big groups.
Finally and just for the record, I'm not saying everyone who drives a lambo is a "Dekoor", nor everyone who's into fashion. I personally love fashion and I'm all in favor of the whole "Dress to impress" thing; all I'm saying is that real people don't care about fake things. So, why be fake?

The exes continually one-up each other."
** update: watched it, loved it. While laughing at the funny parts; I found my friend and I are the only ones laughing.... which felt weird.

I love this! As soon as I saw this at one of my friend's facebook page, I just had to post about it. Apparently this is in Kuwait, and I have actually seen something similar in Shuwaikh Co-op. The words are harsh, but I think its just perfect. Some people are so insensitive, and they need a dose of their own medicine. When anyone parks in a handicapped parking zone without thinking of all the other people who actually need it; that's just pure selfishness. I've seen it happen right in front of me in so many occasions, sadly in places of education like my own University, where we have a number of handicapped students. I hope that this will in fact trigger some sensibility into some people. It definitely got to me and I never park there.
I think we need more awareness about the matter, I believe some people still don't get it. What do you think?

- Damn, that was a cool episode. Eyeliner dude is pretty messed up.
- While I didn't understand the timing of this flashback episode going in, especially so late in the final season of the show, I kinda get it now. If we knew what drove Richard before, then we would have just been like "Isabella should just appear now and tell Ricardo what to do."
- Any episode where Jack gets told off is AWESOME! Way to go, Hurley. Way to fuckin' go.
More to come soon from the Island guarded by the Devil.

What makes us awesome?
1) Girls are caring.
It is probably a stereotype that girls tend to be more sensitive than guys, however I personally believe its true. This is exactly why girls do care a lot more than guys. The way we see it; communication and talking about feelings is what makes us girls show you guys that we're there. I'm not saying guys are careless emotionless creatures, even though this applies to many, I'm saying that guys don't know how to express themselves when they do finally care. Therefore we don't see you being caring at all.
2) Girls are more understanding.
Unless the girl is a complete drama queen or a neurotic nagger, then we all know that girls are more understanding. We do get a little bit too emotional at times, but when it all passes we do try to understand. If you're still having difficulties agreeing, then remember all the times you had a fight with a girl you know, and look at the ways she treated the situation. Just because we cry doesn't mean we don't understand. Don't we just forgive at the end?
3) Girls are sweet.
Need I say more? We all know that girls are sweet. I'm not saying this because I'm a girl; guys can be sweet sometimes. However girls are sweet by nature, and that's what attracts you guys to us. You can't resist the way we treat you.
4) Girls are self-centered, but in a good way.
How is that? Well, we take good care of ourselves. Sometimes we over do it, but have you ever wondered why? Of course it's for you. There's a saying that says that women try to look good to impress other women. Maybe there's some truth to that, but in the bigger sense I think it's safe to say that we do it for that special someone we care about.
5) Girls are givers.
You can't deny this one! Yes, we do ask a lot sometimes, and we can get a bit too demanding. BUT when we give, we give it all. At times it even backfires on us.
6) Girls are emotional.
Why is this a good thing? Because if we weren't so emotional we would all be living in an emotional-free world, where people would be treated like robots. Why is this good again? For those of you who still think that emotions makes us weaker or irrational; emotions is what gets you falling in love in the first place. If a guy doesn't get his right dose of love he will more likely be stressed. Having someone that fills up your life with affection relieves your anxiety; it's scientifically proven.
7) Girls are forgiving.
Forgiveness doesn't come cheap. We make you pay for it, but in the end all is forgiven. We may not show you that we forgave you, but we actually do. I came to this conclusion based on my own personal experiences and other girls', so just trust me on this.
8) Girls have good taste.
Girls care about fashion. They care about their looks and the way they smell. This all reflects on their great taste. If a girl takes a special interest in the way she looks, that means she has good taste. You may complain about how much time, money, and effort we put on the way we dress but I know deep down you care as well.
9) Girls are appreciative.
We do appreciate you. We do appreciate everything we have; we just don't know how to show it. Although you may find it hard to believe, but we do thank god everyday for the good things in life. This can be seen in the way we treat people and things around us.
10) Girls are just simply awesome.
What makes us so awesome? The fact that you can't live without us just says it all.
The purpose of this post is to remind you, the guys, of how amazing we are and how it's important for you to appreciate us like we do with you. It is also a friendly reminder to other girls of the greatness that they are.
P.S Guys are awesome too, but if you have a list then bring it on.

It's been a while since I last had dinner there, I normally go for breakfast with my friends or family but rarely dinner. Weather was windy but great nonetheless.
PQ is a place where I want to eat. A friendly restaurant, casual but nice enough to make dinner feel a little special.
