Bring Your Own Bag

The Environment Society of Oman (ESO) will officially launch its anti-plastic bag / Bring Your Own Bag campaign tomorrow (Monday January, 10) at the Al Fair in MQ. There will be a stand outside the shop manned by volunteers from the ESO selling reusuable canvas shopping bags and hopefully recruiting new members from 9am till 8pm. If you want to do your bit for the environment come by and buy a bag. They're available in two sizes and prices are quite reasonable. Don't just buy it and forget it. Buy it and take it with you everytime you go shopping. Next time you're out shopping you can say "no thanks" to plastic bags.

My car situation

I haven't been writing about my car accident because my wife is convinced that I'm gonna be thrown in jail for the stuff I write on this blog. If it was up to her she'd delete half of it. Anyhow, I finally finished the runaround for getting my car fixed and now I wait for a couple weeks or a month till the car actually gets fixed. As expected, the police blamed the accident on me and hence didn't even try to locate the bastard who had crashed into me. Simple logic: it's your fault so why do we have to find him. How convenient. The wife-imposed gag order prevents me from venting any public anger about it on this blog.

How come no one thought of this before?

Philips and Remington have both come out with beard trimmers that have built-in vacuums that suck the trimmed hairs in. It's not one of those "how come no one's thought of this before" products because just about anyone who uses a trimmer has been wishing for this since forever. Still, better late than never. I'll probably buy one the next time I'm out shopping at Carrefour.

Possible solution to the book situation

Big up to my man Alex who has come through for me one more time. Apparently there's a company in Oman that get your stuff for you for about 1 rial per book. You order from your own Amazon account and put their UK address for the delivery. The company has the stuff shipped from their UK to Oman once a week. Cool solution. I hope they're still around and never go out of business. 1 rial per book is an excellent deal, especially if you go for the free UK delivery option. The website is:

I won't be able to check out their service for a while. We're going away for Eid and I'm hoping to buy a whole lotta books on this trip.
