I’ve renting an apartment from a woman who decided to sell the house I’m in a few months ago. After several months of delays and me hoping the new owners would like to continue having me on as a tenant, the house has finally been sold and the answer is ‘no’. So I’m going to be hunting for a new apartment for end of October. I’m hoping this will not interfere with the comic, but its possible that it will.

Saudi Arabia National Day 2017

Date: September 23, 2017

The 23rd of September is celebrated in Saudi Arabia as National Day, commemorating the country’s unification by King Abdul Aziz Al Saud in 1932.

Today’s Doodle showcases the kingdom’s rich cultural heritage through the lens of national dress. The white ‘thobe’ and black ‘abaya’ symbolize everyday Saudi life. But venture out a bit further and you’ll find treasures and color galore...

Ceremonial attire in Hijaz in Western Saudi Arabia is white. Women embellish their robes with gold thread (zari), splashes of color adorn the men’s headpieces and belts.

Al Ardha, the traditional Saudi sword dance, originates from Najd in central Saudi Arabia, and is performed by men in long embroidered overcoats called ‘dagla’. Women here decorate their clothes with colorful patchwork and beadwork, and wear tasseled face veils.

People in the Southern regions of Jizan and Asir complement their geometrically patterned, multi-colored robes with bright floral headpieces.

Weaving the kingdom’s history and customs into the threads of traditional dress is indeed a beautiful medium to preserve Saudi heritage for generations to come.

Wishing Saudis everywhere a happy National Day!

Glassware can get pretty expensive especially if you’re in college and always getting sht faced and breaking your glasses. Start just using your empty beer bottles and turning them into your new glasses. Look dope, easy to make and cheap! Follow these 5 easy steps.

Step 1 – Grab a beer bottle preferably with thick glass such as corona bottles. Tie a string just above the label on the empty bottle

Step 2 – Keep the string tied and soak it in lighter fluid.

Step 3 – Put the string back on the bottle and hold it horizontally. Light the sting rotating the bottle so the flame spreads. You should hear the bottle crack slightly in about 10 seconds.
