So I lost my chance...

..... I just heard on the news that Shakira is gonna get married..... I will crawl back under my rock until I find a new love.... Fernando de la Rua, the former president of Argentina, says his son Antonio and the 'Hips Don't Lie' singer - who have been dating for five years - have discussed tying the knot but haven't set a date.
He is quoted as saying: "They prefer to wait. Kids today would rather live as a couple they don't believe that marriage is necessary to be happy."
Fernando has also revealed that he is very fond of his future daughter-in-law.
He added: "Shakira is a very good woman, she is very loving to her parents and with her in-laws as well.
"She is a lover of peace who is concerned about those less fortunate than herself."
Meanwhile, Shakira has admitted she doesn't understand her sex symbol status.
The 28-year-old star insists she is very shy and quiet in real life, the opposite of her sultry pop persona.
She recently said: "My videos represent the artist in me very well, not the woman I am.
"When they watch my videos, people think I'm a very sexually aggressive person, but I am completely the opposite. I'm not as self-confident as it seems when I'm on the stage. I have lots of insecurities. I am actually very shy."

Mathematics, arithmetic and humor

Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy

Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime

A man will pay $20 for a $10 item he needs.
A woman will pay $10 for a $20 item that she doesn't need.

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.

Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.

A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs and cackling, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.

I'm Back

Whoa, I have just noticed something, the last time I posted was over a month ago (April 22nd)..

I guess I got carried away with all the hectic things life does to us. First I went on a vacation, I will talk about that later in another post, but I came back and I totally forgot about my baby, iKuwait has been running since December 2006, thats a good 6 months (thanks to our loyal readers), what was I saying, oh yeah, iKuwait 6 months bla bla bla bla ...

Point is I'm back baby, and I won't neglect iKuwait, but I do need your support cause now Joud is gone and she won;t be back till mid July.

Miss you all my bloggeteers....

Kinky London bridge

yesterday i was having a conversation with a friend about summer plans, then one thing led to another and the topic jumped to travelling, london, and finally the song london bridge by fergie:

"How come everytime you come around,
My London, London bridge, wanna go down like,
London, London, London, wanna go down like,
London, London, London, we goin’ down like…"

when i first heard the song i wondered what she meant with london bridge, and even asked some friends if they knew, but it remained a mystery and eventually i forgot about it... until now. i decided to solve this enigma and satisfy my mild curiosity once and for all. this investigation took a whole 30 sec of web research and here goes:

Fergie Reveals Sexy Meaning Behind Her "London Bridge" Song

The number 23... really ?

earlier number 23 at its best i was idly watching showtime - which sucks so bad now but that's beside the point - and one of the movie channels was running a bit about the movie the number 23 starring jim carrey.

is it just me or does this sound like a really stupid idea ? they showed some bits of the movie and they were all about how numbers in carrey's life always add up to 23 (social security #, birthday etc). i don't know, it just sounds silly to me. surprisingly, it got a good score on imdb. but that doesn't always mean the movie's good - i mean lord of the rings and star wars are up there too, so how accurate can this thing be ?

on a side note - if the number 23 had a sequel, what would it be called ?

* i just realized, the digits in my birth date (day + month + year) add up to 23.. oooooh... spooooooky

End of the road

yesterday a friend of mine told me that boyz II men were going to perform in dubai soon. her voice was full of nostalgia - for let's face it, the boyz were an integral part of us growing up in the early 90's. she asked wether i wanted to go see them perform; i told her to go listen to 1 of their songs right now and see how much they suck. then apologized for insulting our childhood.

i don't know how we used to listen to this - along with other similar lovey dovey r&b drama. i tried to make a "school days cd" a couple of months back, and couldn't bring myself to re-listen to jodeci, shai, swv, color me badd, silk.... the only ones which still sound good are pm dawn, en vogue, tlc

funny how tastes change, musical and other
