At long last

Yes, friends, I’ve forgotten about blogging, I’m sorry.

I went to a bookstore! A bookstore! Amazing places. A couple of quick points:

1) Sale tables should always be visited… I found three Hunter S Thompson titles on a “buy two get one free” deal. Score.

2) America is everywhere… In Iraq we have, among many things, a coffee shop in our little food court area (another post about our accessibility to Pizza Hut and Subway while at war is probably warranted). This coffee shop, Seattle’s Best (another post about whether or not it is in fact Seattle’s Best is probably warranted), spits out passable brew despite the circumstances. Now, not being an avid coffee consumer, scoring a genuine American overpriced cup of Joe hadn’t been on the priority list, but, while in a bookstore, I figured I’d mosey on over and slap $8 for a cup.

Lo’ and behold, what is their coffee brand of choice? Seattle’s Best. Nice. I travel halfway around the world to buy the same cup of coffee. Geez.

That’s it. Sorry for the brevity this time folks, but I is on the vacation, so har!

By the way, I love you all!
