Had a kababfest last night. Good times. Even fired up the ole' shisha. I really want to get a proper hookah from home. Anyone coming? Speaking of home...anyone read from Aberdeen? CM brother #2 just moved there and should have a friendly chat with you. It is getting cold and rainy already. Continuing with the non-sequitors, we finished the first season of Lost. Not too bad, I guess. The beginning disc and half and the ending disc and a half were good. Rest were cheesy fillers. However, good old sven got me the season of firefly in anticipation of the movie. Gotta get watching that. Actually, what I really want to watch is Cronenberg's History of Violence. On to the links, Christian soldiers.
I've got friends who used to live in Aberdeen. By all accounts it never really *stops* being cold and rainy. Except when it's cold and snowy. (And they should know, they moved there from Shetland.) Your brother might want to read the hilarious rant about Aberdeen in the opening pages of Christopher Brookmyre's A big boy did it and ran away. I'm told it's all true.
Me and my friends called Ponting George Bush for the whole Ashes series, and before. It's a perfect nickname for facilitating quick-as-that pub gags...And he IS George Bush.
Hey sepoy, how did you miss this juicy story from Mazdak?
Duly noted, Quizman. And this at the vaunted event personally arranged by Ms. Nilofer Bakhtiar [the Pakistani Karen Hughes]! rob: i never made the connection before but now i have more concrete evidence for why i never, ever, liked Ponting sharon: all the rants about scotland, i learned from Irvine Welsh. Brookmyre's looks worth reading.
I got the hubby a stellar sheesha from Islamabad. Remind me next time I head home that you want one, 'k?
On lynching, I think that that back third is from a diff article. That's all that can make sense. This is an intriguing study, though, but the whys of it are not anywhere near to being dis-covered. Personal to Raver: I sent you a friendster msg. I will try to IM you tomorrow.
