More desktop wallpaper! This is the Erg Chebbi dunes, near the town of Erfoud, in Morocco, just 25 km from the Algerian border. It brings to mind the following story from the Gospel of Ellen: A man was walking with THE LORD looking back over the path of his life. And he noticed that THE ...A minimal wordpress theme by Jared Erickson

Pigeonholed
2012-05-25 20:22:00
I know, I promised to write more once classes ended, and I haven’t done so much of it.  Too much pressure, man – people are waiting to hear what I have to say! I may have mentioned a couple of times my new single status.  I may have also mentioned that I was never particularly ...A minimal wordpress theme by Jared Erickson

Starting Over
2012-05-16 22:13:00
I realized that I have been A Bad Blogger. Actually, I’ve been A Bad Blogger for pretty much all of the entire last year, but now that classes are over I no longer have graduate school to blame for it.  And I realize that if I don’t force myself, my internal monologue may take over ...A minimal wordpress theme by Jared Erickson

So, I’m back. Did ya miss me? I may have just finished my final paper for the semester. It’s not the best thing I’ve ever written, but I had such bad writer’s block trying to squeeze this puppy out that it’s a wonder it got midwifed at all.  The fact that I’m now flirting with ...

This month’s entry comes from the mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, in Meknés, Morocco. I was back in Morocco last week – still a bit jetlagged, and looking forward to a nice weekend! Download in your favorite size here: 2560×1600 |  2048×1536 | 1440×960 |  1440×900 | 1280×853 |  1280×800

Open Letter to Students of Dr ____.
2012-03-05 22:09:00
Dear Student of Dr ___: Congratulations!  You managed to find your way to my office.  I am not Dr ___.  You can tell because she’s about fifteen years older than me, has long hair, and doesn’t cultivate facial hair like me. You proceeded right past Dr ___’s office to get to my door to ask ...

Christianity for Stalkers
2012-02-20 21:47:00
Late last week, I found myself doing that thing I do for my job where I’m in another indistinguishable chain motel in another small town, somewhere in Texas. They start to blend together after a while, and it’s tough to remember whether you’re supposed to turn right or left at the Whataburger to get where ...

Some Days
2012-02-16 02:07:00
Some days are better than others. I’m not talking about The Separation (although it applies there, too). Some days just … suck. Transcript of an actual phone call I had today. Me: Hello, [name of colleague] Colleague: Hi, it’s  [says her own name]. Me: Yes, I can see that from the caller ID. Colleague: Right. ...

It?s Valentine?s Day!
2012-02-14 15:23:00
Even in North Korea and Saudi Arabia is the fact that today is a made-up holiday designed to sell candy, cards, and flowers pretty well known.  I’ve gotten a couple of cautious, “Gee, today must be painful for you” comments from friends who are doing the Dance of the Tiptoer Around The Newly Single Guy. ...

Crossroads
2012-02-06 22:45:00
It’s been a while since I’ve sat down to write a serious blog post, and I have, on more than one occasion, pondered whether this blog has run its course. That I’m assigned hundreds of pages of reading each week for my coursework (this semester I’m averaging between three and four hundred pages per week), ...

The History Nerd?s Guide to Uncharted 3: Drake?s Deception
2012-01-11 22:25:00
Drake's Deception puts players on a trek to find the real lost city of Ubar?believed to be Iraam of the Pillars of antiquity, mentioned in the Qur'an--deep in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al-Khali) in Saudi Arabia. On the way, the story takes a surprisingly accurate voyage through a few Middle Eastern locations. And, being the history nerd and Middle Eastern-ist that I am, I thought to myself, "Wow, someone should put together a resource guide to all the stuff in this game." ... and then I realized that I'm probably one of the best qualified nerds for the job.

I?m on a plane!
2011-12-26 23:36:00
I’m posting this from an airplane just because I can. Does that make me vain and pretentious? Probably, but if you’ve read anything I’ve ever posted, that will come as little surprise to you. My parents decided to take me to Puerto Rico for Christmas. We missed by a day, but no worries there. My ...

?Zis Thing Still On?
2011-12-25 15:53:00
Hey, look, it’s Christmas! It’s been ages since I posted anything of substance. As I suspected, being in school all of the fall semester seriously put a dent in my desire to spend more time being creative and writing anything, what with all of the non-creative reading that goes along with that. So, the fall ...

2012 Calendars Available!
2011-11-24 18:24:00
I’ve jumped on the calendar bandwagon. I did a limited run calendar in 2011 for friends and family as a Christmas gift. This year’s Black Friday sale at my printer was a little more generous, so I printed up a limited number for sale. They’re only $10, plus $5.00 shipping and handling via Priority Mail ...

This month’s theme is called “Vertigo” for no reason other than the obvious. It’s a shot I took in the Bardo Museum in Tunis this summer of this spiral staircase that looked kind of creepy.

Back at Square One
2011-08-17 22:56:00
I had an interesting realization not too long ago that I have, inadvertently, been keeping a secret on this blog. It’s not that it’s an actual secret, you see, it’s just that most of it came to fruition during a hiatus from blogging that started in September and lasted until the Egyptian Revolution. Since I ...

I haven’t blogged since I got back from North Africa — this isn’t news to either of my remaining readers, I’m sure!  Needless to say, I did get back from North Africa, relatively successfully (the only ceramic casualty occurred on a flight from Tunis to Casablanca; ironically the flight from Casa back to New York ...
