Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


"Vacation, all I ever wanted ..."

Woo-hoo! Krys has booked our trip to Egypt! We'll be leaving on 7 November for two weeks! We haven't taken a vacation since 1999, and I think we're due. Two weeks without the children - can we handle the separation? I know I can!

Of course, as Krys often says, she'll believe we're on vacation when we step off the plane. But for now, all systems are go!

Congrats! Sounds fun!

Will you try to learn a few simple Arabic phrases before you leave?

And who will look after the kids? I ask because I know just any old sitter won't do with your special girls.

Yes, we're going to learn some Arabic. We learned some Spanish before we went to Venezuela in 1999, but it didn't help very much. Let's hope the Arabic goes over better!

My mom is going to watch the children - for some reason she agreed to do it! She's hoping to convince my sister to come out for a week and then try to get my dad to come out. He doesn't need to work much anymore, so I don't know why she just doesn't make him come for the full two weeks. Her power is slipping!

That sounds like an awesome trip. Here's the one Egyptian phrase I know: "Malesh."

It's sort of the equivalent of, "Whatever," and said when you can be bothered to worry about something.

"There's no toilet paper at this hotel. Ah well, malesh."

Whoa, that's pretty awesome. Not New Zealand awesome, but pretty damn close! :D

Rub it in, why don't you, Nik. Bastard.

I like that phrase, "malesh." I may have to use it.

(It probably really means "death to Muhammad" and Chris wants me to get killed. We'll see.)

FYI: I plan to carry toilet paper in my purse, so hopefully we'll never need to use "malesh" in that context!
