I had a nice post planned about what I have been doing for the past 6 months which culminated on saturday.
i am a sick, sick, sick man.
so, hang on tight, gentle readers. I will be back.
ps. farangi can chime in with an entry anytime. that slacker. feel free to bash him in the comments.
farangi. isnt that like a star trek culture?
Sven, you have just reached pomo nirvana. When you can correctly unify Star Trek, the Arabic word (I think it's Arabic--Sepoy?) for foreigner, Chapati Mystery and a gun-toting, bible quoting, muscle-car driving writer/lawyer from Ohio, you've done your duty to mankind. You may now retire. There is nothing left for you. That was your thesis, man.
farangi, foreigner, not in arabic. but yes in urdu, hindi, hindustani- whatever you call it. in common parlance, refers to the 'white man'. (in arabic you could use ajnabi (stranger/foreigner) or a'jamee (non-arab)). by the way, i enjoyed the speech at re-orientations. the audience enjoyed the line about sindhi having 50-something letters. nice job.
hope you feel better. sorry i missed hearing the speech; just hearing about sindhi's many weirdo letters gets me excited. which invites other, harsher comments.
Hope you get better soon, sepoy. :(
farangi: your nom de plume is an arabization of "Franks" as those pesky crusaders called themselves - and the Arabs adopted it to mean the whole kit'n'caboodle "West". All white men look alike being a solid theory to this day. Sharon & haroon: thanks for the warm and fuzzy. I am back [coughing will continue intermittently; drowsiness is a side-benefit] wanderer: you were there and you didn't say hi? i am hurt.
Feel better soon. I suggest massive amounts of miso soup, which can, I'm convinced, cure almost anything up to and including death.
