Somewhere over the past five years I've developed an obessesion: smoking shisha. I had resolved that this taste for the tibial resulted from the group of happy Muslims that I surround myself with with their Muslim music and Muslimness and such (that's for you, Neha). But then I realized that Ishan, Alex, Cory and I were having emotional lounge sessions around the hookah when some of us were still 17 in Heights 315.

Colby ended 5 months ago so I figure it's about time I join Dang and give you and update on what's been going on with me since then. Many have you have been around for parts of it so apologies for the "I know, I was there" parts of the email but there's a long list of people in the "To:" line. Read More
First, summer came and went pretty fast, with visits from Cory, Alex, and Rishi, and Sandy's extended stay. Ricky Gervais Live in NYC was fantastic, as was the company. And then Hande moved to D.C. once she was sufficiently sure that I would not be there ;). With the exception of some minor altercations with the law, it was a great time. However, the summer was always building up to me moving to Japan on August 1st. I made a list of all the tasks I needed to get done and things I needed to bring with me. I managed to cross about 2 out of 20 of them off before I forgot about said list and found myself on a plane to Tokyo. Sandy can attest that I started packing around 10 or 11PM the night before. Oh, such a globe-trekker I am, such a fearless explorer in these troubled times; but as the Moors once said, "He who does not travel does not know the value of men." Talk amongst yourselves.
