You Just Can't Sugarcoat Crap

Receptionist:  Yes, the dentist will see you very soon

Her voice was melodic, almost as if she was giving out a present to a kid.

I sat down on one of the comfy white chairs in the brilliant white room.  The taste in design was surprisingly exquisite.  Perhaps there's something to this Asnan Clinic after all.  Neon lights were tucked in behind ledges so they stay unseen, and the lights change colors from blue, to green, to red, to violet, etc.  This was all topped off by white iMacs around the room.  They have WindowsXP installed, which sucks, but you can't expect a clinic to work on MacOS sadly.  Ah well.

I was quite relaxed.  The environment was soothing and peaceful.  I even forgot I was at a dentist!

Doctor:  Is Mr. Bojacob here?

Receptionist:  He's sitting over there.

Turning towards me was a doctor with a wide smile on his face.  His white uniform worked quite well with the environment, as I couldn't tell if he was floating or not.  Running behind him was his assistant, a tiny angel that almost has wings on her back.  I smiled wide and forgot all my dentist concerns.  Both walked towards me and I could almost imagine white pigeons flying out of their clothes.

Assistant:  Please follow me.

Me:  m'kay!

And so I followed the angels from heaven to their playhouse.  They couldn't possibly hurt me.

I walked inside and sat down in the white dentist chair.  Everything was white in here too, along with the color-changing neon lights.  I am so lucky...

Drill:  whirrrrrr.... whirrrrr...

I am .. lucky?

Doctor:  Assistant?

Assistant simply stares at my open mouth.  What was that gleam in her eyes?

Doctor:  Assistant!

She snaps out of it

Assistant:  Sorry, yes?

The doctor smiled as if he knew something.

Doctor:  Let us begin.  Hand it to me.

Assistant:  You mean....?

Doctor:  Yes .. the BANJ!

DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN!!!!!

Me:  Oh shit...

Doctor:  YEHAAH!  HERE WE GO!

Me: OH SHIT!

Assistant:  DO IT!  DO IT NOW!!

Doctor:  AAHAHAHAH IN YOU GO MR NEEDLE!!!

Me:  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!

Doctor:  OH MR BOJACOB YOU ARE ALREADY A FAVORITE OF MINE NOW!  LET ME INTRODUCE MY LITTLE FRIEND!!

Me:  oh god no..no not the DRILL NNOOAAAAAARGH!!!!

Drill:  WHIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! GNAWWWGNAWWW

Me:  YAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!

Assistant:  YOU MISSED A SPOT YOU MISSED A SPOT!!

Doctor:  YOUR EYES!!!  THEY ARE SO WELL TRAINED!!  YES!  THIS IS WHAT I'D EXPECT FROM MY SITH APPRENTICE!!

Me:  What?  wtf ... OUUUUUUUUUUCH!!!!!!

A Beautiful Desert?

As the weather improves, so do the skies of our tranquil deserts.  Or my camera is just too good.

Dusk in Kuwait Desert

I just don't remember the sky looking like that, but hey, cameras don't lie yeah?  15 second shutter times can get some pretty unexpected results.

Oh, the moon sure was in a good mood when it produced a large halo last night.  I'm not sure if this picture shows it, but if you look really hard...

Moonlight & Halo

You can see it.

Click on the pictures and just change the image size in Flickr.  My blog width isn't all that much, so I couldn't put up the whole thing.

Photography is getting pretty interesting.  Hm.

Geek Signals

I'm going to Bahrain for a few days, and I just realized something:  My laptop bag is heavier than my normal bag.

Do I need to cut down on the geeking a little?  I don't think this is supposed to happen.

The N3al in Action

I've recently found fmylife.com (on boing boing, I'm not that depressed!)  It's a user generated list of life's greatest misfortunes, in a somewhat humorous way.  I'll admit, it's the best cure when you're feeling blue!

Picks:

Today, I went to McDonald's for lunch and ordered a salad. The man behind the counter looked at me and said "Well, at least you're trying." FML

Today, I told my parents how grateful I am for having them in my life and that not many kids are as lucky as me. My mom texted me after I went out 10 minutes later: "Are you ok? You seemed depressed earlier." FML

Today, my grandmother called. She greeted me by my mother's name. When I told her it was not my mother, she apologized and corrected herself, but this time she addressed me as my sister. When I told her it was not my sister either, she said "Sorry, wrong number" and hung up. FML

Today, I lost 200 dollars while playing poker with my new sunglasses. Turns out you can see the cards in the reflection. FML

Today, my boyfriend's sister called me to wish me congratulations and ask me when I was due. I said I wasn't prenant to which she replied "Yes you are, my brother just told us the good news". Long pause. "Oh wait is this Mary or Morgan?" I'm Morgan. Who's Mary? FML

Ouch...

An iPhone App?

We are two programmers.  We both have OK programming skills.  He called me and said "let's do an iPhone app!"  I replied with "yeah!"

And then there was silence.

What do we do?  I have absolutely no clue what app we should do.

Help?  What do Kuwaitis want?  (or perhaps Arabs in general?)
