Love, unfiltered.

I went to the Animal Friends League of Kuwait shelter this past Friday. My sister is a regular volunteer there.

In spite of Thursday night being the usual get-very-plastered-and-go-to-bed-naked types, I woke up at 7:30 (ish) and got dressed on time (ish).

Bursting adoration. I don't know else to describe the experience.


All they wanted to do is run. And lick your face. And run. And run.

Every time we opened the door to a kennel to let the dogs come exploding out into the play area, it made me want to take them all home with me. All 50 or so of them.

We romped with almost every one of these dogs.

It was easy to fall in love with Axel, the charmer. My favourite though, was Fluffy. Between us, we invented our own game. It's called Howl-Yo-Ass-Off-While-Running-Around-In-Circles-Like-

Fluffy was part of the reason I decided to go back there next week.

And then naturally, I stood there and watched Fluffy get adopted.

It's all good, I guess.

I'm still going back next Friday. WITH MY CAMERA! :D

Email From The Sister.

This morning, I received the following email from my sister at work:

Sub: The Lone Ranger

Didn't you once have one thick strand hair on the underside of your
chin....on your left side ?

I have it too !

I discovered it while I was rubbing my chin and analyzing alternatives to stabilize the world's economic growth.

Not because I am bored and playing with my body parts for entertainment.

This past weekend was a long one thanks to a public holiday.

By some twist of fate, the ragtag group of misfits that is us, ended up on an island.

Four bottles of moonshine, one crazy tag-along mother, one bigot Kuwaiti woman with red hair, one near cat-fight, some mouthwash flavoured alcohol, one dislocated shoulder, one case of temporary amnesia, two near-drownings, one 'interesting' game of soap football, one runaway buggy, one fall from a horse, nineteen beautiful blankets, one case of missing underwear, two boat rides and one sun-burnt nose later, here we are. Still alive. All of us.

Will wonders never cease?

Big Bang

I'm so proud of my explosion *gleam*

I made it from scratch, using Photoshop CS3, following a tutorial I found online.

What do YOU know?

I got this off one of my favourite websites, Way of The Mind :

The Gullibility Factor test
In this simple, anonymous test, you can assess your own Gullibility Factor (GF) score. Simply answer TRUE or FALSE to the following questions, click SUBMIT, and your score will be instantly calculated and displayed along with an explanation and the correct answers.

Your GF score will tell you whether you're a free-thinking individual, or a total mind slave. Please answer all questions, or your score will be artificially low.

This test was authored by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, primary author at This test is offered for entertainment purposes only.

Shamefully enough, I scored a miserable 70.

Read the explanations on the results page. What you find there will surprise you.
