I <3 NY (Not)

August 3, 2006  |  Trip 2006

Warning: Long long post, therefore click on the [More] to read the rest of it, I thought it would be better this way so that I don’t clog up the entire page and stuff.

I am supposed to say I heart NY but I can’t simply because I couldn’t get a chance to view the entire city or at least go to my most important place in the entire State! And that is THE APPLE STORE ON 5TH AVENUE! :/ Sadly enough stuff happened on the flight. What exactly? Well let’s give you a cute report.

After I posted my earlier post, and logged out well I sat waiting for a short bit until our flight was called for boarding, bear in mind we were delayed an hour and a half-ish, but while waiting I met an old High School Classmate and we started chatting it up a bit and Dad joined in later on. It’s cool to meet people from the past really. So they call us to board and we head onto our gate, Gate 21!

Coming to you from …

August 2, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Hi, this is Jacqui coming to you from Kuwait Airport. :P

So, a few things to report before I board and stuff, is that I fucking hate the airport, I mean its such a mess that it ticked me off. Imagine arriving and seeing an Airport full of people at only 7AM! And the Business area not even working and stuff. Anywho, after the endless baggage check and stuff we headed to the Dasman Lounge where I am coming to you from LOL! Hehehehe had breakfast, and now I’m anticpating the flight just to sleep on it basically!

Pops is cool, he hooked me up (a phrase that I share with Uncle Haaaas) Hehehe he hooked me up well enough now I can contemplate purchasing the ‘Macbook’ if I want too! But first I need a new battery for the Powerbook for some reason the battery is quickly drained it used to last 3-4 hours I believe now it’s more like 2 hours :/ Weird.

Other thoughts I’d like to share, hmm why do people take 09128309128309 bags when they are travelling? Why I mean? Aren’t you going to buy stuff from there? Then why not take the bare essentials and that’s it! I mean seriously why?

Sigh, you’re going to miss me I know LOL Hehehe I am going to miss me of course! So I guess this ends it for the last post from Kuwait! In a short bit I’ll be boarding the plane and heading off to the land of opportunities (yeah right! LOL) Hehehe I just had to put in some reference to the old American Dream theme!

I’m Leaving on a Jet Plane

August 1, 2006  |  Uncategorized

I’m leaving on a jet plane… Don’t know when I’ll be back again…

So the countdown has started, in like 13 hours I’ll head out to the airport for a month’s vacation from Kuwait’s heat and such. Temperature in NY where I’ll be staying one night will be 37 degrees Celsius and sunny, whereas when I get to Columbia, Missouri it’ll be around 28 degrees Celsius with cloudy skies, but then again that’s only my Mac’s Weather Helper thingy telling me stuff. I am anticipating some rainy weather in Missouri since at this time they get some rain showers.

As you might have observed, I have changed my look for the month being, so that it shows how I will be gone for a month and stuff ;P You know I am a layout addict. So I had to do it.

Enjoy for now, since I am in a weird crazy mood right now. And check out the new Commentator Avatars, you know, if you don’t have a Gravatar registered to the email you use to comment then you won’t get ur personal avatar to show.

It’s so HOT in HERRE!

July 31, 2006  |  Uncategorized

The weather is just unbelievable hot, and I don’t mean it in a good way I mean it in the most mean, bad way ever. It might also be the fact that I am on my desktop which is in fact in the corner of the basement recreation room, the very far corner of the room next to the storage room, and the outter wall of the house. And the heat is being sucked in through that wall and into my corner, but then again so is my bedroom. My bedroom is hot as well, that’s why I can’t wait to see Fee and take over her bedroom or living room, whichever I don’t mind! Another thing I won’t mind is taking over the TV, Comedy Central HERE I COME! High speed internet, God bless you! Sbarro’s – damn I forgot the name of the dish I usually take! damn it! – oh well, Olive Garden here I come, along with many other beautiful choices. Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Circuit City, I enjoy just being there it’s so much fun!

A year ago, I went to the States on the 7th or so of August and came back before the end of the month, this time I’m going longer, and a year ago I actually wrote my travel log, and you guys got to read stuff. But this time I’ll put up more pictures and snap more of them.

Apparently in Mizzou, there is heavy rainfall! And I can’t believe it but I am anticipating the walks in the rain!

I might be unlike most of the “Kuwaiti’s” travelling on vacation to any of the countries abroad, simply because I refuse to over-pack like a huge suitcase. What I’m packing this time is a pair of jeans + one that I’ll wear, 4 shirts, 4 tank tops, 1-2 pajamas, and the rest of the normal stuff. It’s like the lightest packing ever, so I’m putting it off until tomorrow.

So, that’s it for me for today, but one or two words before I leave is that, beware tomorrow you’ll be faced with a new thing, and that well tomorrow will be the last day of my posting from Kuwait, after that I’ll be coming to you from USA.

Oh yeah, something cool and new, is that I am now offering “@ rubduckie.com” emails, for any of you who’d like to have some. It’ll be hosted at Gmail of course and will be similar to your Gmail accounts, giving you 2GB of space and ability to run Gtalk as well. Example of the sign in page would be this!

They’re Back

July 31, 2006  |  Uncategorized

I feel like a bird with his wings clipped now, no more freedom, back to semi-routine. But on the bright side, I am feeling a bit under the weather and this means I can rest and not worry about anything or where my next meal will be (I spent past week eating at Grandma’s). On another bright note, I decided to not take up Uncle’s offer, but instead keep Powerbook for a short bit, if something cool comes out on the 7th of August then I go for it (i.e. Macbook with solutions to the problems its facing now) and pass on Powerbook to Sister No 4, but if not then I hang on for a short bit and order it online when it comes out. That is if I have the patience, which I am hoping I do because 50/50 chance that once I buy it, I get screwed over :P

Otherwise, now I can crawl into my room and rest :(

P.S. Lilo is the life and existance of this house, without her it would be quiet, which I loved, but with her you’ll see the ensuing of chaos. She is the main figure in the cat fights on the iMac.

P.P.S. Happy Birthday Nibaq

P.P.P.S. I saw Little Man and laughed my head off, it’s such a cute movie LOL!

Last day of Freedom

July 29, 2006  |  Uncategorized

Hell it’s my last hours of freedom. In exactly 13 hours, my sisters and mother will be back from Dubai and the house will return to its chaotic state. There will be noise everywhere, there will be fights on who gets to use the iMac (granted it belongs to my sister but I sometimes hate using my desktop that I find myself wandering over here), there will be book fights, well basically everything, even TV FIGHTS! Because God knows a house full of young women and one single remote controlled television calls for a few cat fights? :P

I don’t know how I’ll cope the next few days in going back into a crazy routine but then again I’ve got 3 full days left before I leave to US! That’ll restore the blissful life in my blood then. Yay! I’m still in the contemplating stage of to Macbook or to not Macbook, but most likely there is an 80% chance that I’ll Macbook it after the 7th of August.

I just upgraded to WordPress 2.0.4, and well needless to say while upgrading I came up with the idea that I … Wait why should I tell you my idea, you’ll get to see it in 3 days time. Or hear about it then. Don’t worry all you faithful readers you’ll still get your Jackie/Jacqui fix while I’m abroad but right now it’s more like Jacqui fix! And so I’ll go about writing about daily happenings (as I usually do) every day well except those days where I’ll be too busy to do so.

I just came home from grocerry shopping, YES PURGATORY I WENT AND GROCERRY SHOPPED! At 10pm :/ But still its the thought that counts, granted Father and I haven’t been eating at home for a while now but still we needed a few stuff, I stocked up on Marshemallows, Cookies, Flake (I’m such a nut for Flake!), and I am trying out new cheese today.

The cheese of the day is:

Gouda Cheese

My dinner of the day (that is our evening meal, or mine rather): 2 Turkey Sandwiches with Gouda Cheese and Lettuce and Tomatoes, and Baby Cocktail Sausages, with a drink of Pepsi! Bon Appetite for me!

Jacqui in a Nutshell

July 29, 2006  |  My Life

The following scene from Will & Grace’s episode Alice Doesn’t Lisp Anymore in Season 3. I tried to look for it at YouTube.Com but I couldn’t find it, oh well. So here goes:

Karen is trying to cheer Jack up because he wasn’t actually nominated for the MAC awards for Gay Caberets.

Karen: First, I thought, I’ll get him a hot guy… (Jack goes ‘Hmmm’ with a smile on his face) but then I thought, no. (Jack becomes sad again). My Jack isn’t that shallow. Then I thought, well diamonds ARE a girls best friend, I’ll get him jewellery (Jack goes ‘Hmmm’ with a smile on his face), but then I thought no(Jack becomes sad again), then I thought, I’ll get him some money (Jack goes ‘Hmmm’ with a smile on his face), but then I thought, no (Jack becomes sad again), my Jackie can’t be bought. He works in the business that is show because he loves it (Jack becomes sad again)… HA, I GOT YOU. Here you go honey, the dude, the jewels and the dough!

(Jack gets excited and jumps up and down).

Karen: Honey, you’re simple, you’re shallow, and you’re a common whore. That’s why we’re soul mates.

And that my friends, describes me in a nutshell. Well not completely but you’d get the picture :P
