Sometimes you feel as if you've run out of things to say. I have written two posts about the grocery store, for God's sake, and nothing else is inspiring me. There's a dust storm today, fine. Yesterday I flung myself out of a taxi when the driver started bitching about a fare before we had even arrived at my destination, and some old dude's jaw dropped as he stood on the street corner and watched me. And I am reading student papers and trying to shake the tics and flubs of nonnative English from the writer part of my brain. This is a difficult task. None of this is especially new. There is much to write about Egypt, of course, but none of it's in this here head. I'm sure we'll go somewhere for spring break, though, and at the very least there will be a picture.
Anyway, if you're looking for some entertainment, Bryan sent this link a while ago:

He sent it to me because of #85 and #21.
Because I LOVE THE WIRE. Except that whole newspaper thing in the final season was pretty one-note. But other than that, I LOVE THE WIRE. It's Shakespeare. No kidding.
I wonder if "making fun of themselves" is on that list.
Anyway, if it's not your cup of tea, and you can just tell by the title of the blog that it isn't, don't torture yourself by going there, and please refrain from sassing me. But if you're in the mood to giggle self-interestedly, by all means, go.

Sounds like you're having what we used to call a "not-Egypt-day". Prescription for me used to be some nice jazz, maybe old Ella Fitzgerald, a good murder mystery with a tricky plot, a pot of tea and a plate of cookies. I've dropped in to your blog a few times and enjoy it. Hope things pick up for you.

Sounds like the Doctor has a good idea--plus a little get-away is probably good timing--guess that's why they call it "spring break".
I'm going to insist we have spring break at our office.

Hi Mandingo and J-J, it's K'Mina--I'm kind of embarrassed that the first time I'm commenting on your blog happens to be about a TV show, but hey, it's not really surprising, plus it's one that you turned me onto in the first place. I just have to tell you Zac's main reaction to the finale of the Wire: "WHAT?! SNOOP'S A GIRL??" He had no idea this whole time. Loved the last season. The newspaper thing was kind of 2-D, but I loved the rest of it. Poor l'il Duquan. Damn it. Miss you guys, got your wonderous letter, it made my week, will write soon!
