On the warm note, if one more person tells me that this is a really cold winter therefore global warming isn't real, I think my head really will explode.

On the Blu-Ray note, Blu-Ray is derived from blue-violet laser (so sayeth Wikipedia so it could be completely wrong) so, why Blu-Ray? Why not Blue-Ray? Our we on a campaign to remove vowels from our written language, like Arabic? R we plp?
I can't believe this but, I miss Napster. With Torrents, it's almost always ' download entire discography'. I just want one song. Everything else the artist wrote is crap and I just want one song! And I don't want to spend six hours downloading an entire discography for it.
Also, Love Me Dead, great song. And not the band I was talking about with only one good song.

Of course, given my family, I've been watching this stuff in Iran very closely. This is how I've decided the world is ending. All of our news, CNN, BBC, everybody is reporting, as fact, everything people post on Twitter. Our news is coming from people who are proud of the fact they're called "tweets." I mean, it's great that they're doing their part to help these people but, seriously, Twitter. I mean, CNN is showing their direct quotes, netspeak and all, Farsi netspeak even (like '7tir' meaning HaftirI) I hate Twitter.
I'm also upset about how many people are saying "Neda Revolution." Yes, what happened was tragic, yes we caught it on video, but I think naming this after her downplays or almost ignores the fact that she's not the first to die, hundreds of others may have died, are ready to die. She may be the symbol of that sacrifice but that's taking it to far. Yeah, maybe that's insensitive, but this more about the election, women's rights, their economy, the youth movement, tyranny, a lot of things. Which is completely ignoring the fact that it's not a revolution, a riots, maybe a revolt, but we're still a ways off from revolution. The last Iranian revolution took two years, these protesters are tiring out after two weeks.
Make no mistake, I'm certainly not on the government's side, I'm just getting tired of the way people are reacting to this, it's almost yellow journalism. They want to make it as bad, as serious, as possible.

Dale, all the cards are great but man, that Hello Kitty card ::I a not worthy::
Maria, I love you and your beautiful handwriting, legible but with style, the cards as well, were beautiful and tasteful. And, you made it with almost a week to spare. Shove somebody off their high horse.
I' not sure if you check this anymore, but I also got a letter fro Jenna....written on see through paper. I mean, I know we've written to each other often enough to get creative, but if you write to me on tissue paper, I'm sending you a giant coconut POSTAGE DUE! Better yet, Durian, postage due.... At least she had the decency to use the cool new art stamp they came out with (Albert Bierstadt)
I'll send out formal thank you cards later, I just know it's nice to know your mail didn't get lost along the way

Sorry about the book thing, I'm trying to get Solomon to take them, but he wouldn't until I offered them to my friends first. So, a chance at a present and getting Solomon off my back in one quick post. Although I'm certainly starting to miss Solomon on my back...
Carues and Emm, quick question, I know you like on the other side of the country from the Québécoise. But how much French can you pick up?
