  • Finally a fast connection from Coffee Day on alta7lyah street. I miss posting crap here and there. I don't think anything new has happened ever since my last post. I guess I've been reading a few books by Turky Al-Hamad and Ghazy Al-Qusaiby. I read Reeh Aljanah by Turky Alhamad, and it's sure something. I'm also in the process of reading Alsyasah bain alHalal we alHaram by the same author. Salma by Gazy Alqussaiby is a good novel. That's about it.
    My mother place where I usually hang out is at Dunkin' Donuts next to KSU (King Saud University). I like that place because of the usuals who attend almost on a daily basis. Usually they're students, professors, medical doctors, and a few other cases of people who have all the time in the world on their hands, such as myself. The weather here is nice. Haven't witnessed such weather in years. It rained one night, that was sure something. Yeah..like I said, damn, Riyadh turned into a big ass shopping mall. I have a lot of pics to post..maybe later..
    I guess that's about it. Coffee..balout..Playstation...coffee..coffee...etc etc..................

    Zero Expectations...

  • I tell people right before they go back to Saudi Arabia every year to go back with no expectations. Which is true. Like I said before, things hardly change around here.
    I had a blast in New York, specifically speaking, Saturday night. I won't go into details. I almost missed my Saudi flight the next day, though. The flight was supposed to take off at 10 p.m. but the retards ended up departing an hour early without further notice. I was running through JFK airport from one terminal to another trying to find our beloved airline. Got my boarding pass and ran to the gate. I was second to the last people to get on. The last was a guy and his wife and baby. He was pissed at the flight attendant in regards to the early departure. I was like, whatever, as long as I got on, no problem. The flight wasn't bad at all. 11 hours to Jeddah, waited for a half hour then an hour and something to Riyadh. I had told my dad about the "original" arrival time, but now that I was in RIyadh an hour early, I knew my dad wasn't going to be there. So, I waited till him and my 2 brothers showed up 40 minutes later.
    Riyadh hasn't changed..well, a lot more lights, and shopping centers..that's about it, I guess. My mom was happy to see me of course. That was last night. Later on that night, I went to my old hangout place, Dunkin' Donuts. Found the gang there as usual. Today was pretty much the same thing..playing catch up with old friends. That's about it. I don't even know why I'm posting this, I guess I'm just testing the connection here.
    Happy Eid and kel 3am we intum b5air gabel alza7mah.
