wheres the underground?

in musical terms,….

such a large part of life and society here is kept underground, i’m wondering if there is a musical underground here.

granted there are no venues to be underground in,…..

but still πŸ˜›


this is going to be one of those randomness posts so bear with me πŸ˜›

the great steak and potatoe company:

i just discovered these guys! holy crap their fries are good!!
no really they’re really damn motherfucking good!!!
sharq mall and salem mubarak street next to subways.


or you’ll forever burn in the low fat fryer that is hell,….

french fries / chips/ jibs :P:

i asked the dude at the shawarma shop for fries,…..
he goes huh?
i realise that ok he may not understand french fries, so my mistake.
i ask for chips.
which is actually quite a bizarre word for them to understand over fries considering the proliferation of american culture, cos chips is really more of a british word for fries.
he still goes huh?
i ask for chips again but this time pronounce it jibs.
he goes ok large or small,….
i kept picturing myself at the supermarket trying to decide on large or small bag of gibblets…..groosed out at the thought of a LARGE bag of chicken guts i decided on a small.

fries and the greater meaning of life:

fries,….more than religion, yoga, a common enemy, or the global pursuit of happiness,….fries are the perfect analogous thingy to life as we know it.
moods change depending on whether or not you get the fries just like you like em.
too hot, crispy, well done, over done, salty,……
or too little salt, cold, underdone, soggy, squishy,…..
some like em long an thin, others fat an short
with the skins a la wedges, or fully circumsized like the majority of fast food joints
dipped in ketchup, mayo, mustard, or naked
covered in cheese, chilli, or some ungodly concoction designed by the chef to get rid of soon to expire stuff,…..
yes ‘special sauce’ always makes me suspect.
i prefer mine naked,…. sometimes with a tad of cheese.
too much gives you zits and cellulite,….
not enough and you want more,….
but you’ll always want more until you’ve had too much,….
especially if theyre as good as great steaks ones πŸ˜›

true equality for women in the muslim world:

chatting with a bunch of guys the other day, i asked them about the women running in the elections here.
you know how sometimes people say something and you go hmmm,… we’re from different worlds but we’re not all the different really?
this wasnt one of those times…..
in a nutshell, they reckon that a woman will never be able to run anything properly other than a household…..
and yes since i know the majority of people reading this are women and kuwaiti, those are your husbands, brothers and fathers talking when there arent any women around.
since theyre traders i decided to speak their language……
what about global investment house, al noor ( i think) and markaz ( pretty sure),…theyre founded and run by women, and two of them are the most important institutions running ?
they basically put it down to the people those women knew, which i believe is bollocks.
but someone once said never argue with fools cos people from a distance cant tell who is who.

i’ve been visiting companies the past few weeks, and the people i’ve been the most impressed with are the arab women who have answered my questions about their respective companies. the guys were either clueless PR people who wouldnt admit to being PR people and were busy pretending they knew everything, or theyre daddies got them a job there and they really didnt know anything nor did they express a desire to know anything abouttheir own companies.

women ought to run this country,…. things would be much smoother, and there’d be less posturing about who swung the bigger dick.

dunno about handbags tho πŸ˜›

(ducks to avoid the flying handbags cos of the last comment :P)

finance is somewhere i think women have an edge over guys,….
cos after the math is learned, all you really need is the stomach to move when others are scared running.
men being social hunters are more likely to follow the pack and do likewise.

when you can buy his ass many times over, then you’ll get your equality.

sad but true,… so get to work πŸ˜›

i think theres more but this is getting long and i’m late for an appointment πŸ˜›

ps i dont mind PR people if they look for someone that can answer my questions πŸ˜›



  1. i went :
    hmmmmmmmmm & ummmmmmmm
    & grrrrrrr …..
    alot while reading ur post .

    ok loved the jibs story, happened to me more than once …. lol
    we have a special dictionary in kuwait.

    second thing:
    so french fries, are like hair to us, u know good hair day .. good french fries day πŸ˜‰ if its the case then i totally understand πŸ™‚

    when it comes to women not being able to run anything but their households! thats is mean and stupid.
    and no, the men who said that are shallow they do not represent our dads, brothers .. cuz i for one know how my family feels bout this, most of them are planning to vote for women, because they think women deserve a chance, and becasue they think their worthy.

    im not saying al lwomen are, generalizing isnt fair in both cases.

    so the only thing left to say,
    just wait and see .
    actions are stronger than words πŸ™‚

    oh and skunk: i know its non of my biz, but i really want to know what appointment ur running late to? ;p tc

  2. LoL!

    Will try that out for sure..

    All hail fries I know what you mean… I love fries as well! I tried Burger King fries the other day, they were pretty nice. Havent tried cheese and fries together though it sounds fab..

  3. lol no3ik.

    yeah their words surprised me too, and these guys are a pretty decent cross section of the community. they run from the very wealthy to the just doing alright, and we’re all joined by the market. they also range in ages from myself being the youngest up to one guy in his mid 60’s.

    surprisingly, it was the older dude who was the only one that agreed with me, but then hes the only one that studied outside, and hes seen alot here change over time.

    its quite funny when the old dude is the most liberal πŸ˜›

    personally, all things being equal i’d vote for a woman too, if i could vote πŸ˜›

    oh and i went to watch the game at the great steak shop πŸ˜›

    JB: next time youre in sharq or salmiya go there πŸ˜› you wont regret it πŸ˜›

    and the cheese on the fries just makes you feel like a glutton, and yeah i know its some crappy synthetic cheese,…lol but it tastes sooooo damn good πŸ˜›

  4. Oh i dont mind junk food… I dont have to worry about my weight or zits (frantically reaches out to touch wood somewhere almost falling out of my wooden chair :-I)so yea, I indulge. and junk food rocks… there was this nice line I apply to daily life-

    All the good things in life are either illegal, fattening or married to someone else πŸ˜‰

  5. “I dont have to worry about my weight or zits”

    pfffft,… so youre one of those people !


    i indulge anyways πŸ˜› zits and an extra couple laps in the pool are a small price to pay πŸ˜›

  6. Well its not a good thing not having to worry about my weight, I’m pretty much as skinny as my display pic which sometimes sucks.. wish I had that hair though πŸ˜›

  7. lol thatd be cool hair ro have:P,.. like an extra pair of hands πŸ˜›

    yeah skinny comes with its own list of problems, but still much nicer in this weather than the alternative.

    having said that,…. skinny guys in dishdashas arent as funny as trully humungous guys in dishdashas,…. they always make me laugh πŸ˜›

    i could stand to lose a few pounds,… went thru a looooong protracted lazy patch last year πŸ˜› but getting back to my fighting weight,…..

    ever so slowly ,……

  8. Your posts are getting longer.

    I have a headache 😦

    I know I should be doing my paper work πŸ˜›

    Just baked an apple pie πŸ˜€

  9. venues, giblets, grossed out, squishy, bollocks, posturing, swung, humongous, protracted?

    I never heard of a music underground in Kuwait!

    I can’t believe you didn’t take me to that restaurant 😦

    Yeah I always think of French fries as chips!

    I like mine with mayonnaise and ketchup. Never tried them with cheese, actually never saw you eat them with cheese!!!

    Now I feel like going to McDonald’s and buy some πŸ˜›

    Women should be ruling the world but they’re too busy plucking their eyebrows. And Kuwaiti women are not ready to run the country cause they’re too stupid.

    What appointment?

  10. I didn’t have fries for ages 😦

  11. squishy, soft and easy squeezed
