Turkish Iraqi slaughter

Doesn't anyone realize that the Turks are going to go into northern Iraq as soon as the invasion starts and kill, kill, kill the Iraqi Kurds? The Turks see them as a threat, and given that the Kurds have established their own government up there, it's likely they will fight hard to keep what they already have. But the US media is only giving us the "Oh, save us from Saddam" version of the Iraqi Kurd story ... mostly, anyway. An NPR report about Turkish attempts to propagandize the Turkish populace against the Iraqi Kurds was pretty right on but didn't quite make it to the implications of this effort.

I made it to the second round of interviews, but they're not going to have them until next week. More waiting for me ... and little to do here. But it looks like I'm finally going to get my Stonefly Mary Janes, thanks to my ability to watch Sierra Traders' inventory on almost a minute by minute basis.

I've got a lot of time on my hands today. I've been looking for new LJ icons, which means I've been reading about <a href>Ganesh</a> and surfing heavily. This led to taking a quiz to see what kind of Anime character I am, and I ask, what does "Fan Service" mean?

Your only real purpose is to amuse the perverts.<br>You always seem to fall with your butt in the<br>air, and everyone always knows what colour your<br>panties are.

Cheap ole LJ

Well, it looks like I've run up against my limit in the personal icons department. Should I ditch the disco ball altogether? I'm tempted. Not that I haven't learned lots of cool stuff today.

Tell Her About It

What is a perfect Seattle night?

1. Happy hour at the Comet (they're not serving Spire again, the bastards)
2. Hot pizza at Hot Mama's, looking out the big glass windows and watching the world go by
3. Pedro Almodovar's Tell Her About It at the Egyptian
4. Pinball (I won three games!) at Playland

This place is so perfect for me!
