Can I Get An AMEN?!

Damn straight! I'm going to start charging Obsessco for my services!!! And you too (the readers) while I'm at it!!! I accept payment in the form of Lady Gaga CDs/Merchandise/Lipstick.

Just kidding....I love doing this. Blogging is one of those simple pleasures in life that provides so much independence and reward. Our readers are a great part of the reward that comes with this undertaking, and so just a quick thank you to everyone who follows us and stops by....WE LOVE YOU!!!

Waiting for my paycheck,


PS - What's your simple pleasure in life? That one thing that doesn't require much time or money?

From Germany with Love

Travel Journal: Day One

I know I said I was going to be gone for a while but it seems that my insomnia is back and I have Wifi. Okay so my day started at 6:30 where I woke up so early that I managed to squeeze some Prison break before have to change J even though I only slept a couple of hours… So okay il mohim we get to the airport and guess what? Thanks to the fine management at Kuwait 4 planes were shoved into the same gate it was CRAZY. Did I mention im afraid of take off? The plane ride wasn’t bad since I slept most of it off. Blah blah blah we land we get luggage, we go to the hotel, all the typical stuff. THEN the real day began J

The weather is AMAZING the sad thing is my parent are fans of walking L yes, exercise, L but the weather was so nice I didn’t mind. So we get to this historical village and we walk around and what do we get ourselves into? A Gay Carnival Food thing! Oh yes rainbow flags everywhere! Literal rainbow flags!

Ilmohim I'll make this short, my weird findings of the day: they have a MAGGI store like an actual restaurant just for that!

My waitress was this Afghani girl who reminded me so much of that girl on National Geographics so naturally I took a picture of her for you guys .

I found this really cool Graffiti/artsy thing inside one of the tunnels and a house with a stair that I have yet to figure out the purpose of.

Fact: I Hate Asking For Help.

Yes, the above title is true. Asking for help, along with apologizing, are the two things I would rather die than do. However, since my fiery persona only exists online, I find myself committing both sins often. Too often for my liking.
Back to the topic at hand, I'm starting university in the fall and will be spending copious amounts of time around people....people that I don't understand. The thing is growing up in Canada taught me many things, but it didn't teach me some essential skills for life here. I can't speak "Kuwaiti" that well, and my grasp of this dialect is as weak Ke$ha singing live (Still love her though). Add that to my completely oblivious nature in regards to social protocol, and you have an outcast in the making. All jokes aside. I turn to you, my loyal followers and always welcome guests, for some social advice in regards as to what I can be doing to decrease the awkward factor as I transition into life as a disciple of the beast that is KU.

I will be extending this notion into a blogging series, where as I go through my days as a Freshman I'll be blogging about my experiences and seeking help from you, my cyberspace friends. I'm actually growing excited at the concept of starting out on the next part of my young life.

Shuddering at the thought,


It's That Time Again...

I know that the different school systems in Kuwait (public, private, etc.) run on different schedules, but I think it's safe to say we've all had our fair bit of lazy indulgence. That said, it dawned on me that we're rapidly approaching the PNR of our cherished summer vacation: the point of no return. This means two things to yours truly:
  • I need to throw away my calendar, and cherish my last three months of freedom before university life.
  • It's time to start chipping away at the goals I've outlined for myself during this blistering heat (Yeah...I'm complaining about the heat. Deal with it.)

My goals for this summer are of the simple variety, and list is as follows:
  1. Get into the best shape possible. I recently stumbled across this blog, a Rock'N'Roll approach to dieting and fitness, penned by the former (and supposedly) current love of the magnificent Lady Gaga. I find it a great read when I need to get myself into an iron mindset for the gym.
  2. Brush up on my French. Growing up in Canada meant I was subjected to endless hours of French grammar and vocabulary lessons. While I don't claim fluency, I can manage myself on the streets of Paris if I were to ever find myself there, stranded. Which is random, but it could happen.
  3. Read five novels before the end of August (Magazines don't count). The S. of Canada would have never even needed to make this a goal. In my life before Kuwait, reading was my number one priority after school. However, people grow up and feelings fade.....and here were are, with me having to carve out time time read. To help accomplish this one, I'm going to be checking out the book store Obsessco mentioned here.
Tell me my brothers in arms and pain (This heat is bullshit! Yeah, I went there.), what are your goals/plans/hopes for this summer? Leave a comment and try to inspire me, or you know, whatever.

Off to douse myself in some cool blue Windex,

i was very close to becoming one of those bloggers that complain about the heat in Kuwait, BUT god has blessed me and gave me a plane ticket out of this hell. Since i dont know how much internet i'm going to have in Germany im afraid this blog is on hold for three weeks.

so i leave you with the only two German words i know: Guten Tag!

Expectations vs. Reality

so far this has been my summer, hopefully that will change VERY soon.. i hope.


Im going to gush about this movie more than review it, DEAL WITH IT!

one word: Awesome-Epicness im aware that's two words but this movie defies any rules, it's simply one of the best movies i've ever watched and considering i watch as many movies as i eat i'll say i am a pretty good judge. it fulfills the requirement for any great movie:

1. Good actors
Leonardo DiCaprio's is a good actor im not going to dwell on this, but Joseph Gorden-Levitt who also did "G. I. Joe" and "500 days of summer" which wasnt as well known but did get a couple of oscar nomination. In this movie he was AMAZING, and Ellen Page who did "Juno" was also in it and she did really well.

2. Good Script
The details that went into the story made it so good and believable its almost like reading a book because you could see all the emotions and the history and it was beautiful. Although there are some holes in the story and the ending is sort of confusing but if you dont focus too much you wont notice them.

3. Graphics/Directing
im gonna get in touch with my British side and sum this in two words"Bloody Brilliant." (the same guy who directed the dark night by the way)

So yeah i think this is by far one of the best movies yet and while it doesnt have robots, vampires, aliens, toys, or comic book characters in iron suits its worth watching so get your tickets and pay attention because its really intense and complicated i kept literally jumping off my seat and scaring my friends. '

here's the interview from the writer/director:

Ronald McDonald: Child Molester

Aside from my general hatred of McDonalds and everything it stands for, ever since i was a child i always found Ronald creepy and it never made sense to me why they chose him as there "mascot". When i was a kid and my mom used to put me on the bench with the sculpture of him sitting down i used to cry till they let me get up. Growing up now i realize he look a little like a child molester you might find on one of Oprah's expose episodes. Clowns are creepy by just being clowns but Ronald takes to a whole new level with the creepy red hair and that line going through his eyes and that awful yellow jumpsuit. He's probably why i have a slight dislike to Ron Weasley in Harry Potter. I mean is it just me or is he really creepy?

Pointless... But Entertaining

1. The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV were Fred and Wilma Flintstone.

2.Every day more money is printed for Monopoly than the US Treasury

3.Men can read smaller print than women can; women can hear better.

4.Coca-Cola was originally green.

5.It is impossible to lick your elbow.

6.The world's youngest parents were 8 and 9 and lived in China in 1910.
7. 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321

At least 75% of people who read this will try to lick their elbow!

A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words

This sums up the entire world cup :) There can be only one winner and unfortunately for Holland and Germany that winner is Spain. I was hoping for Argentina but Spain is cool too i guess..

Pirate /Ninja Debate Who's Cooler?

what do u guys think? it's the never ending debate who is cooler ninjas or pirates??


  • they have awesome hats
  • they get "booty"
  • they're always drunk and entertaining (think Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean)
  • No one notices their emo flag because they are so cool
  • they're outlaws :)
  • Ninjas are silent
  • Chuck Norris. Yes, the ninjas claim Chuck Norris. Sorry, pirates.
  • Ninjas have better comic books. I hate to say it, but nearly every superhero has some sort of ninja training. (teenage mutant ninja turtles)
  • they disappear like smoke
  • they have awesome weapons
  • they are generally cleaner than pirates
I generally think a ninja is awesome-r that than a pirate ..

Current Irritation: Call of Duty

My big brother loves this game, i on the other hand want to break the CD, throw it in the trash, and pretend it mysteriously disappeared. Every time he plays the game i have to stop my downloads because i "lag" him so i have to sit for hours waiting for him to finish so i can watch youtube and download stuff. I honestly tried to understand why all the boys ages 7 to 30 play during friday lunch. All i could see was them killing other "soldiers" and praising each other on their artistic kills, is this what we stooped to? And back when i played play station (the golden age of pokemon) u get three lives tops then you die, but from what i gather the number of time you die in this game is infinite! not only that, but you get a "kill cam" to see how you died. So to show my utter annoyance i drew a very retarded cartoon for you dear readers.

If you're a person who plays the game PLEASE tell me whats so damn fascinating about it? and does anyone have the same problem?

YAAY Another Dan Brown Movie

Dan Brown's latest book featuring Dr. Robert Langdon, "The Lost Symbol" is going to be turned into a movie released in 2012 :) I'm DESPERATELY hope they don't butcher it like the last one. I mean "The Da Vince Code" wasnt as amazing as the book but it did get most of the plot right. Dont get me started on "Angels and Demons" though it butchered the book so bad i kept yelling at the screen, everything from the character's background to not explaining who the Illuminati are made me so angry especially when they took out the ending. I mean i think they took it off because of the Vatican and stuff but come on when has that ever stopped them? I really really have high hopes for this one cause this book is just as awesome. This one is more about Masons and takes place in D.C as opposed to the first 2 that are mostly about the church and Illuminati Rome and Paris. I read the book over spring break and its really good but kind of disgusting when it comes to the villain so i recommend it as a summer read cause Robert Langdon is like the nerdy James Bond he gets a new girl each book ;p

what do you guys think?

Mark Your Calendars

Two movie that i cant wait to see "Despicable Me" and "Inception" both are coming out next week and the trailers look promising!

The kids is SO adorable i want to eat her! :D

This movie looks EPIC i was just watching an interview with the actors and director and its so amazing that most of it isnt even green screen so i pretty psyched for this.

Behold, this my bed the same bed that i've been trying to sleep in for the past 4 hours. Till I finally realized there is no way that i might be sleeping anytime soon :( and yes that is a teddy bear you see and no im not a baby im just traumatized by "chucky" and afraid if i throw it'll attack me at nigh so dont judge.

So since it's five i have been forced to make my own breakfast the very effective yet oh so delicious cornflakes ala Obsessco where i cleaverly add icecream and whipped cream to my cornflakes :) and drinking the elixer of life coffee (this where i REALLY woke up)and since i'm as sober as i can be being the wonderful student that i am, I shall read book and entertain you with my mindlesss chatter :)

And now i leave you with a simple question for the Day:

Comment with your answer for the question no matter situation you're in and any easy breakfast recipes would be welcomed :)

The Thinking process

This exactly how my thinking process goes :

LORELAI: Because my brain is a wild jungle full of scary gibberish. “I’m writing a letter. I can’t write a letter. “Why can’t I write a letter? I’m wearing a green dress. “I wish I was wearing my blue dress. “My blue dress is at the cleaners. “‘The Germans wore gray. You wore blue. ”Casablanca’. “‘Casablanca’ is such a good movie. “‘Casablanca.’ The white house. Bush. “Why don’t I drive a hybrid car? I should drive a hybrid car. “I should really take my bicycle to work. “Bicycle. Unicycle. Unitard. Hockey puck. Rattlesnake. Monkey, monkey, underpants.”

God i LOVE Gilmore Girls :)

Summer Read: Thirteen Reasons Why

Okay if you're into the kinda weird yet fascinating genre like me, you are going to love this book. It starts with a guy going to his front porch afterschool to see a wrapped parcel addressed to him with no return address. He opens it to find Thirteen cassette tapes are from his classmate who killed herself a couple of before. In the the first tape she explains that if you get the box that means your one of the Thirteen Reasons why she killed herself. With it comes a map of the places she mentions and instructions to send them to the next person on the tapes. The book is SO good that you finish it in one sitting, I recommend it :)

Summer Traditions

I always believe in summer traditions like coming up with an "artistic" experiment every summer that destroys something around the house. That was achieved with the microwave/shoe experiment. Tradition 2: Spend a week and a half looking exactly like the guy in the cartoon in my movie pjs except i have a phone, ipod, laptop, camera, microwave popcorn, and icecream, everything i need right next to me. I watch my favorite canceled tv shows.
Three seasons of Gilmore Girls in no particular order, a show that taught me the importance of coffee and many amazing combacks. This show couldnt be anymore perfect and while my mother refers to it as the "hathra" show it will always be my secret comfort :)
Three seasons of Veronica Mars because that's all they every produced -.- I command you to watch it because it's awesome.

Then after this i watch random episodes from: Greys Anatomy, How I met your mother, Malcolm in the Middle, My name is Earl, and some cartoons.

after this tradition is over. I choose a new tv show to watch this summer it seems to be Brothers and Sisters i only watched 5 episode but it looks great :)

any suggestions?
