100th post

With this post I will celebrate my 100th posting on my blog. I think a great business idea would be to offer people a hard cover bound book of all the blogs they have published, I know the plan will make money since most bloggers are a bit narcissistic and would love to have a book about themselves written by themselves. I know exactly what I would do with it too!, I would give it to some one as a gift on their birthday and watch their faces fall when they realize that it was a book about the other by the author containing his mindless ramblings :)
Anyways, I guess I should mention that my younger sister will be getting married this coming Thursday and that both her and my future brother-in-law are really excited. Another arranged marriage in the family, nothing exciting about it in my view. Exciting would be them eloping and getting married in Taif (think of Vegas but without the Casinos) But they both seem happy so I am happy for them, being the brides elder brother it becomes my task to take the groom aside and threaten him with bodily harm if he ever does anything to my sister that would hurt her, but I get the feeling that this is just elicit laughs from everyone in the family. So maybe I will just challenge him to a wii tennis match and consider my duty completed.
I ran 10 miles with the Riyadh Road Runners yesterday. It was a pretty good run I think, the weather was amazing and brunch afterwards was also good pretty good. I made good time I think, I completed the whole thing in 1 hour & 38 minutes, slightly better than 6 miles per hour which is my goal for the marathon. I also registered for the Dubai marathon yesterday, I had promised myself that if I got to November 31st without injuries I would register for the marathon, so true to my word I registered and without fail I woke up today with every muscle on my body sore. I think my body knows that by registering I will put it through a lot of punishment in training so it's getting back at me even before I start training seriously. Damn mind and body connection..
I really am glad I found the Riyadh Road Runners, gives me something to look forward to every two weeks :)

I know the concept is straightforward, but can you explain the concept of arranged marriages to someone who is ignant like me.

It's both straight forward and complex at the same time. Basically, the parents get together and decide that their progeny would be a good match. The progeny can either agree or refuse, depending on the kind of culture they come from. It's sort of like a blind date but with more permanent consequences.

Congrats on your 100th post. But I think you could've reached this number like two years ago if you haven't been a slacker on blogging! :P

Kidding aside, congrats to your younger sister's wedding! Don't get your butt kicked on the Wii tennis :)

Yeah, I know, but a slacker is what I am, through and through. I won't get my ass kicked on the wii tennis, I have pro ratings with a wicked serve.
