Tuesday.... "was dark & dingy"

How to name your own country.
Originally uploaded by John~C.

Well, after the brawl of our DISTINGUISHED MPs, I decided to do something cheerful. So, I became the 58,164th citizen of the micronation "Lovely". Join me

Lovely is nice & lovely micronation, where the King is a humourist and the national drink is Tea, Can I ask for more? yes a flickr-like flag & a National Anthem.

This micronation is located in Danny Wallace's apartment in Bow (London), just 10 kilometers from Kuwait's Embassy (in case you want to report your dual citizenship).

More about Lovely (official website - Wikipedia - BBC)

Lovely is now on hiatus due to the hectic schedules of HRH King Danny I.

Back to my first home-country, Kuwait.

Ali Jaber Al-Ali (another Ali) has something interesting about journalism in Kuwait. While giving some interesting background info on Kuwaiti dailies, he mentions 4 of the 5 sisters, apart from Al-Qabas.

"If the headline is big enough, it makes the news big enough."
(Orson Welles in "Citizen Kane")

Do you think this is Khalifa Ali Al-Khalifa's motto? since any piece of news could be an 8-columns first page headline.


While I was away:
A new blog on the block (link)
Good looking religious jews? (link) it reminds me of Macy's

I was a Lovely citizen almost a year ago, I forgot the name and password, so I registered again and now I'm No. 58,165.....!!!

on other issues, right now we know how to get away from anything, no wasta no nothing, you only have to have a newspaper, it'll give you higher power than the Amir and goverment.....!!!
