Ever since Kirstie Alley came on the show “Dancing with the Stars” I have been obsessed with watching it.
I seriously love to see the insane quirkiness of Bruno Tonioli and check out what naughty thing he’ll tell one of the stars, or simply enjoy Len Goodman’s grumpiness highlighted by the lovely and amazing host Tom Bergeron (whom I love and adore), or even listen to Carrie Ann Inaba call a dance “magical” not to forget the talented Brooke Burke Charvet.
This show has grown on me and has made me start watching reality television *horror* seriously I’m horrified that I am enjoying it.
Well the 14th season will start Monday March 19th and the cast has been announced along with the pairings! Something that you should know, William Levy, the Cuban telenovela star, the one who appeared in Jennifer Lopez’s video clip “I’m into You” well he’s taken but not by yours truly by someone else I should say and she warned me that if I oogle him too much she’ll set loose one of her pet monkeys to bite me :P
It’s been a few days now that I’ve been semi-off the grid, you know not as online as I was before. I logged in today to check my Google Reader since I haven’t done so this past weekend and I found 1000+ Google Reader posts to go through! Luckily I got them down to 410 for now but I hope to clear them out today! By the way, it’s Leap Day today!!! Happy Leap Day! We just got an extra day in February to do everything and as Leap Day Williams said in “30 Rock” this past weekend “What happens on Leap Day, stays in Leap Day!” Seriously so we get an extra day and anything that happens just doesn’t count anymore. Not that I want to do anything extra but I’d love to have just one extra day in February it would be totally cool.
So why have I been a bit M.I.A. in the blogging world specifically well it’s because I am undergoing another Project Bedroom Redecoration version 2.0, which kinda means that my bedroom furniture stays but different things will change (aka color, changing the format of the closet, library, etc.)
Yesterday evening I attended a lovely event by the people from Starbucks to discuss the launch of the new “Starbucks Card”, it will be available all around Kuwait starting today Wednesday Feb 22 2012. But I will talk more about the event tomorrow as I am exhausted here is the information you need to know about the card itself based on the press release provided to us:
Starbucks announces the launch of The Starbucks Card
New card offeres customer convenience and free Wi-Fi access in store
KUWAIT-FEB 21 2012: Starbucks stores in Kuwait today celebrated the launch of “The Starbucks Card,” a more convenient way for customers to enjoy the various aromas of coffee, light snacks, and other favorite treats that can be found at Starbucks stores throughout the country.
Available for the first time in Kuwait, “The Starbucks Card,” is the ideal way to make purchases in store. You can simply top up a card to the value of your choice, and then use it to make any purchases at your convenience without the hassle of carrying change in your pockets. “The Starbucks Card” is also the perfect gift for treating your friends and loved ones.
As an additional benefit, anyone using “The Starbucks Card” at stores displaying the Wi-Fi sign can enjoy free Wi-Fi for one hour. To benefit from this great added value, coffee lovers simply have to make a purchase with “The Starbucks Card” and the barista will give them a voucher valid for one hour of free Wi-Fi.
“The Starbucks Card” is valid for 12 months, and it can be topped up as many times as the card holder wishes. You can spend as little or as much of the value as you wish at any time and can check the card balance and validity in store, or by calling the Customer Care Hotline at 1821212.
Thanks to Rawan for the invitation more on the event in the upcoming posts.
I know I’m an Apple freak but last year I got seduced by the Blackberry Playbook and I actually purchased one from Omaha Nebraska while visiting my sister. Unfortunately I got bored of it quickly as it didn’t give me much functionality and hence it was lost in my room until I found it underneath a pile of books.
Well guess what?
Today, right now, the 2.0 Update is available which will magically transfer your Playbook into something else (I keep fearing I will write Playboy but then again I might not tehehe).
It seems that toys are getting smarter nowadays playing with our gadgets simply because well the kids are more spoiled (I blame myself I have spoiled Lujain and my little cousins crazy with those Apple products) and so the toy industry is losing if they don’t join the techie crowd.
So, Mattel is coming up with this “Barbie Photo Fashion” a barbie that comes with an enormous LCD implanted in her abdomen and instead of purchasing a digital camera for the little ones they can shoot pictures with the lens that’s sticking out her back. The pictures can then be customized with frames and more making this really every little girls dream doll.
