Call me old fashioned

but when i want to buy a pair of pants, i prefer that they don't show my crack if i take a deep breath, yet still manage to be so tight that i can't bend my knees.

I hate how the latest fashion trend is even trying to make guys feel fat. Every pair of trousers in Zara requires that you (pardon that innuendo) have no pair to be able to fit in them.. Seriously, no man can survive a full day of activity in them..

they might have made my ass look like a million bucks, but seriously the discomfort that came with it was not worth it.. no matter how much you pleaded mrs. froggy..

Also, I truly believe that H&M's men's section is just an extension of the women's in terms of sizes. I had to go two sizes above my size just to fit into the trousers, and then looked like i was wearing stalkings, which didn't really flatter my figure..

so I say this to you people behind the fashion scene.. you can kiss my straight cut jeans covered ass..

18+

Ever since the inception of my blog, i have tried my very best to keep it PG-13 at the most.. today is a slight variation because today i take a walk on the wild side and leave my comfort zone and share something that was too funny to pass on...
I am still in utter shock that something like this got approved for the yellow pages..

in case the picture is too pixelated for your eyes, it reads:
"No job too big, not job too small
Make sure your next erection is in safe hands"

I scream, for ice-cream

Yesterday I finally answered the crave I have been having a Chocolate-Cookie&Cream-Banana-Royale bowl of ice cream. It was the highlight of my evening.

But what really got me thinking last night was the person who served me the ice-cream. A very nice, polite and young Saudi employee. I have seen it as a recurring trend recently, the Saudis working in stores and at gas stations, and I know it is terrible to generalize, but most of them don't want to be where they are, and they make you feel it as well.

Not this guy though, he was very pleasant, laughed at my jokes and joked back, gave me enough chocolate fudge for a wedding cake and was very polite all the way through. Although I am always proud to see Saudis working, this guy made me even more proud.

Because it is about time, we as Saudis realize that we are not all going to be lawyers and doctors and engineers. Whether is it because of plain misfortune, or because you wasted your life playing, or are just not cut out for studying, none of these things should stand in your way of earning a living.

I am not saying that people with degrees are better and are the only ones who deserve a better life (given the assumption that money=happiness), I am just saying that for our nation to rise, we will need more Saudis to step up to the plate, we need to raise a generation of workers of every class.

This posts comes from the sad feeling I get when I meet up with a few cousins of mine who threw their lives away, and haven't worked hard for a single thing their entire life, and yet still talk about how they DESERVE to be the managers and the successful entrepreneurs they were born to be.

The thing is I don't know who to blame, the society for placing this pressure on our youth? Or the youth who crumble under that pressure?
