The Democratic National Convention is on. I watched a bit of the Fox coverage (they had the missing Utah hiker), CNN (Wolf was hitting on Judy while Jeff looked askance) and MSNBC (Ron Reagan was trying to get girls to flash him. I think). The world would be a terrible place without C-SPAN, I must say.
Anyways, I am in a foul mood today for no reason whatsoever. Ed & Lisa are leaving for S. Carolina. I will miss them dearly. Last night we went to Tizi Melloul and it was amazing. My Chicago readers (I must have a few) will do no wrong by frequenting this fine-dining establishment (designed by Suhail).
Contributing to my malaise this morning was the newsflash that Walmart is evil. This particular addition to the Evil Empire lore is that they are all Republicans. Shocking? No. I don't shop there. And I bet they will be carrying W. (via tsk)
I do shop at Costco and the article sorta triggered a "there are two kinds of people in the world" stream of consciousness where I tried to pick my own structuralist paradigm. Here goes:
Desi = South Asian. but now that the saffronists are anti-both, i have to temper my own loathing of both.
FoB not ABCD I used to frequently use the term Desi casually, until the ABCDs started claiming it as well, pronouncing it with their accent: "Day-see". Because of this, the term lost what made it so useful.
