My new birthday is in two days!

Not my old one, my new one.

I’ll be turning 2.

Another reason why you suck

  • Your friends: Hey, we haven't gotten together in a while. Want to do a movie? I think Star Trek is playing downtown. I wanted to see that film, and the theater is convenient for the both of us. How about we meet up there Friday night?
  • My friends: I will be attending a specific movie at a specific theater on Friday. I would like you to occupy the seat next to me, sparing me any awkward interactions with strangers. Meet me out front. I will be arriving approximately 15 minutes before screen time with an excellent chance that I will be late. If I do not immediately spot you I will proceed into the theater without delay, leaving you wondering if you missed me, I blew you off or if I got seated without you. Upon completion of the screening I will be traveling directly home. Alone. If I walked or took public transportation I will be expecting you to drive me. If this is the case you will utilize the shortest, most direct route without intervening stops.

NOTE:  It’s *Way*  too soon to pass judgment on Tunisia.  But, elections will be held later this year, and as of now the largest seat holder (by far) in the assembly is the Islamist Nahda party, with just shy of 3 times as many seats as the next largest party — the Nahda party had previously been banned for terrorist activity.
So, yeah, it  __Is__  easy to lump all these “revolutions” together, just like you said…
P.S.  Tunisia isn’t actually “Arab.”  It’s Berber.  True, the Muslim crusades did pretty much suffocate (to death) the indigenous cultures which it conquered — supplanting the language & identity of the people — but the genetics never changed.  North Africa is still primarily Berber, and has been since… well… always.  In fact, the Berber are often described as some of the closest remaining ancestors to the Cro Magnon…
Time to cry about the “Native Americans” and those darn Europeans, right? 

If it is too soon to pass judgement then it is too soon to pass judgement on any of the new governments in the Middle East. 

No it isn’t.  We can damn well see what direction things are heading in, and they are heading directly towards crazy-scary religious fanatics… again.
