Abroad and loving it
Cuz it feels so empty without me
Hey folks,

So something happened. The power chord for my computer had a problem with it, so I couldn't really turn on my computer where I write my blog posts. I finally found a place in Prague that fixed the problem quickly and cheaply, but in the meantime I discovered how goddamn addicted I am to my computer. I had the shakes, I sweated uncontrollably, I even called out for my computer during the night. But now everything is fine: I am happily back on my computer, downloading TV, and eventually getting around to finishing my unfinished business of blogging about Berlin and Istanbul.

For now, some quick hits:

-Visitors gallore! Including some dear members of this blogging community! I'm sure they have some things to say about it. It was nice showing my city off a little bit, and even bringing people to places they might not have discovered themselves, like . . .

-BREAKDANCING BATTLE! It was at a hip-hop club called "Face 2 Face," and it was one of the coolest things I've seen on the trip. The breakers were fucking amazing, and who's to say I didn't even go up on the stage and strut a little of my own stuff. Dave was embarrassed for me. Sorry Dave.

-I saw a band called Balkan Beatbox last Tuesday. Their members Balkan, Israeli, Arab, and American, and their sound definitely reflects their varied origins. When they got up there, they shouted "THIS IS NOT A PERFORMANCE! THIS IS A PARTY!" So you can kinda figure that it was a blast. I'm gonna order some of their CDs and shit when I get back to the States.

-Apparently there's been some sort of election held recently? I wasn't aware.
(Holler at Paul Hodes, Jim Webb, John Tester, Patrick Murphy, Deval Patrick, and the dozens of others, not to mention my main man Markos of DailyKos fame).

-I'm seeing the new James Bond movie tonight, but more importantly . . .

-I'm going to Madrid tomorrow! I'm getting more and more psyched as time goes on. I've never been to Spain, but I'm sure Dave will help me break my cherry.

That's it for now! Talk to y'all soon! POST!

Was that wording really necessary, Doug? Seriously. Breaking/popping cherry is just about the most disgusting phrase out there.

In other news, I'm glad to hear from you guys-- this community has been so lonely and quiet as of late!
