Blog Updates

I apologize for the lack of updates lately. With nearly everyone we know getting ready for Gulf Wars, I was pounding pavement looking for another part-time job and recovering from a mysterious cold. I have finished (!) my gomlek and made some progress on other projects though, so expect some updates from me over the next few days.

In retrospect, we're kind of relieved to be staying home from Gulf Wars. Of course I wanted to be with my friends and attend the amazing classes which I have repeatedly drooled over (especially the What Your Persona Would Know About Islam class, taught entirely in persona... DRAT!), but it made more sense financially for us to remain another year on the home front, saving up our drachma and vacation time for next year. Besides that, my surgery got rescheduled for next Monday and there was no way I was going to let them reschedule me a fourth time. Nothing to worry about, just a minor procedure.

Obviously I have been doing some aesthetic updates to the blog, more out of boredom than anything else. I know, I know, "But you could have been working on something!" Well, that was the two days I had my mysterious cold and didn't have the energy for much more than weaving. But I did do quite a bit of that. Just not enough to even out the workload on my green striped kaftan. Oh, well.

(If you were curious, the progress bars came from this site.)

Something I have been thinking about lately is starting a Near/Middle Eastern persona blog ring. Anyone interested? Feel free to drop me a comment or an email to emine (at) cox (dot) net.

Well, back to the ol' sewing machine...
