Who wants to guess what's on fire?

On this blog, we (my ego and I) preach about love and acceptance. Today is the first day of February, so that being that, I OFFICIALLY declare February to be the 'Month Of Love'. What does this mean, you wonder? Well, it means a lot. It includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Posts discussing the reality of dating (and things of that nature) in the Middle East, Kuwait specifically. 
  • My favorite love songs and why I like them (Yes, feminists have feeling too) (Sometimes).
  • Love songs I find to be ridiculous and just straight up stupid (Bruno Mars, I'm looking at you). 
  • Patriotism, and what it means (It's a form of love, and Kuwait's national holidays are in February, so I'm still with the theme). 
  • Why it is my dream to die alone and husband-less
  • All and any other random philosophical bullshit that I come up with.

Yes folks, I've decided to inject my blog with a healthy dose of tear-inducing estrogen because February is, if nothing else, a month of bullshit and promises. Oh, and love (I always forget that last one). So, I'll do my best to post daily and keep it relevant to Kuwait all while being fun. By fun, I mean ridiculously inappropriate... Or clever... Or both.

Moving onto today's post: The Implications of A Glance

In honor of of all the crazy shit I see on Gulf road and Valentine's day, and being the deluded blogger with a God complex creative genius that I am, I've decided to score the stereotypical Kuwaiti fling using lyrics from various songs I have on my iPod. The themes are love, exchanging numbers, phones, money, driving, highways, stolen glances etc.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you a Kuwaiti love affair from start to finish. 

I apologize in advance Enjoy.

The Implications of A Glance

Christina Aguilera - Genie In A Bottle
Hormones racing at the speed of light
But that don't mean it's gotta be tonight
Baby, baby, baby
(Baby, baby, baby)
 The Arctic Monkeys - I Bet You Look Good
 Stop making the eyes at me, I'll stop making the eyes at u  
What it is that surprises me is that I don't really want u to

Timbaland & Katy Perry - If We Ever Meet Again
Ya habeeby Baby tell me what's your story
I ain't shy, don't you worry
I'm flirtin with my eyes, wanna leave with you tonight

Rihanna Feat. Drake - What's My Name
You just waiting on the traffic jam to finish girl
The things that we could do in twenty minutes girl
Beyonce - Yes
Somewhere between hi and goodbye
I felt so comfortable
I felt like we could BBM talk all night
So I gave my number to you
Lady Gaga - Summerboy
Hey there summer boy
Let’s go for a drive
Take me for a ride

Never gonna close our eyes
Hey there summer boy
I’m a busy girl
Don’t have too much time
Hurry up before I change my mind

Sia - The Co-Dependent
Feels like we are married and I haven't run away, run away, run away
So many years I've carried you in my arms
Yet I stay, yet I stay, yet I stay
And still I come a-running when I hear the telephone,
telephone, telephone 

Ace of Base - All That She Wants
The gentle voice that talks to you won't talk forever
It is a night for passion
But the morning means goodbye

No Doubt - It's My Life
And I've asked myself
How much do you
Commit yourself?
Lady Gaga - Telephone  
Stop callin', stop callin',
I don't wanna think anymore!
I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.
Stop callin', stop callin',
I don't wanna talk anymore!
No Doubt - Don't Speak 
It's all ending
I gotta stop pretending who we are...
You and me I can see us dying...are we? 

Shakira - Don't Bother 
So don't bother,
I'll be fine, I'll be fine, I'll be fine, I'll be fine
Promise you won't ever see me cry
And after all I'm glad that I'm not your type, not your type, not your type, not your type
Promise you won't ever see me cry
2Pac - I Ain't Mad At You
And I can't even trip, 'cause I'm just laughin' at cha
You tryin hard to maintain, then go head
'Cause I ain't mad at cha
I ain't mad at cha


Shuffling her thoughts,


PS - How did you interpret the story? You know where the comments go.


  1. Never seen someone with that much time in their hands.

    Interpretation: Starts with a stare, ends with a broken heart. Need to continue the story with some 'y u cheat on meh' lyrics.

  2. The first part of your comment is lacking in manners. Did you ever consider it's something I've been working on over the course of a few days?

    What does take time? Reading blogs and then leaving inconsiderate comments.

  3. Gulf Road No BBQ Sign? First i thought it's something anti-valentine..with that bbq stand appearing as bed (boy and girl already burnt to ashes..) oh and i wanna add one more song..if i may(don't sue me) 50cents, Candy Shop !

  4. Well it starts with love at first sight, talking, talking, more talking, stop, marriage proposal, less talking, even less talking, more nagging, break up. Rinse and repeat.

    That's how i saw it! and BTW: you overreacted :p

  5. My apologies, lacking manners were never part of my intentions, it's no shock this took days of unproductive hours to make. But it turned out entertaining!

    Reading blogs and leaving inconsiderate comments is actually the least time consuming process. Sorry you saw it that way.

  6. Wahab - You completely captured the demise of their romance. Bravo!

    Kuwaitiful - "...days of unproductive hours..."?

    I'm just going to go ahead and assume this has less to do with how I spend my time and more to do with your general way of phrasing things.

    However, your apology is accepted because it is, after all, the 'Month of Love'. You're always welcome to stop by this blog.


  7. Fahad - So sorry, I just saw this comment.

    'Candy Shop'...? I'll admit to liking that song in grade 6. Come on man, Gulf Road needs CLASSICS. Think, 'I like Big Butts' by Sir Mix-A-Lot. :p
