The streets of my city smell more strongly of human urine today than they normally do. I am puzzled as to why this is.
I went into a wine store. The expert behind the counter waltzed up to me and asked what I was in the mood for. “Red, and under fifteen dollars. Give me your least shitty wine matching that description, please.”
He chuckled, “How old are you?”
“Well, let me ask you some questions.”
“What does your furniture look like?”
“Where did you buy it?”
“Most of it is stuff I found, or inherited from old roommates. My dining table was a craigslist find.”
“Ah, I see. Well, let me find you something cheap and red then.” He began scanning the shelves.
“Or, I could go for a nice Croatian desert wine, if you have that.”
“What did you just say?”
“Croatian desert wine.”
“Now there’s a curve ball. Wow!”
I laughed nervously. As it turned out, the wine store didn’t have any Balkan wines, so I opted for a bottle of cheap red wine anyway.
Sally Benz at Feministe has a really thought-provoking post up about non-monogamy and the ideals of feminism.
Afghanistan’s Shia Family/Personal Status Law is back in the news. When I get a chance, I’ll write a substantial post about it.
Thanks to facebook, I caught this video about the rebuilding of Bamyan. It makes me want to visit Afghanistan more than ever.
Mischa said my blog is becoming the Political Assassinations Review. I think he’s right.
