Office politics, Jasmine, since 19-whatever certainly not like now certainly not CERTIFIED MAIL computer correctionsI just let slip by as I key this in and why only capital letters oh you captains of industry why break away from current-day reflections or the sun darkor mornings with it painfully bright why mail deliveries right in the heat of dayit’s painful to watch it’s a simple suggestion plain and simple and that’s only the Nixonianly vestigial part of it some something-or-other idea I’m pitching here it’s my gift from Araby goddamn it I’m stealing from myself this morning

Two Things 1. Persepolis: Go out and get this book right now. It's the best way to get a basic overview of Iranian history over the last 50 years--from the point of view of a totally awesome, progressive, rebellious woman. It's autobiographical and really funny, and poignant, even though poignant is a really lame word. Don't worry, this book is not lame. It is educational AND satisfactory!!!
2. Persepolis 2: Get this one at the same time, so you won't have to pay shipping (I hate paying shipping), and anyway the first one is so good that you'll finish it in one or two sittings. This second one is about the author's return to Iran after going to high school in Europe, and all the trouble she gets in. Awesome!!
Ready, set, Persify your bad self!

Hello! I haven't abandoned my blog yet (Yep, Michael, I'm still here, and thanks a bunch Ani! I'm still torturing my perfectionist self over it :)). It's just been a very busy fortnight, with baaaaaaaaaaad news for me.My blog is now my guinea pig. The template's not done yet, so I'm just gonna keep combining different colours and stuff until I find one I can stick with.So yeah, this blog's gonna be like an E-"chameleon".The woes of being a perfectionist.I'm happy with the bold colours. Perhaps it overwhelms the text but wot the hell. It makes me happy just looking at it. And as usual, things, or more specifically, the css code or whatever you call that keeps fuckin' up because I DIY-ed almost half the template. Not surprising.And then Haloscan wouldn't let me transfer Blogger comments unless I copy and paste them one by one (and yes, you can prolly spot some errors I made in copying and pasting 'em), and all haloscan comments will be gone when they're 4 months old.Will post again soon...homework is overwhelming.AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH.
