ይህን ልዩ የበዓል ፕሮግራም ስፖንሰር (ንጉሡ ነው ወይስ ሰራዊቱ “ሰ” በነገራችን ላይ?) አድርጎ ያቀረበላችሁ ቃሊቲ ብረታ ብረት ፋብሪካ ነው:: ለምን? እኔንጃ!
- እንዲያው ምን ባደርግ ነው አሜሪካ አሜሪካ መሽተት የምችለው? And I mean that in the most literal sense. Don’t go thinking about skunks now; I would like to believe of myself as a metro-sexual, although it does not seem that way. Rather, I am talking about that smell/close family of smells that we detect on and associate with ከውጭ ከመጣ ሰው ጋር:: ይባስ ብሎ ባለፈው ሹራቤ ላይ mercaptoethanol ተረጨብኝ::
- I have come to see that a dishwasher is the epitome of “all sound and fury, signifying nothing”. ሲጮህና ሲንኳኳ ከርሞ ታጥቦ የተሰጠውን ዕቃ እንኳ ማጽዳት አይችልም:: On the other hand, I can’t fail but be impressed by scrubbing bubbles: now that is superpowers. ደግሞ “ሸፋዳ” የሚለውን ቃል እዚህ ጽሁፍ ውስጥ መጠቀም ካለብን I guess the onus has got to fall on automatic sliding doors. Curb your enthusiasm, will ya? I am just passing by.
- I have lost some weight and I plan to take full advantage of it. ቤት ስሄድ ሆድ ለማባባት ወፍሬ ስመለስ ደግሞ to confound expectations
- Things I want to say when I am in ኢትዮጵያ: “ሴቶቻችሁ እንዴት ቆንጆ ሆነዋል ባክህ?!”; point to a random G+several floors and “አሁን ይህን ለመሰራት ምን ያህል ብር ይፈጅ ይሆን?”
- It ain’t fun, going legit. Microsoft deactivated my Office, is asking me to pay 99.99. How can I be sure that all proceeds go to the Bill and Melinda foundation?
- Speaking of Bill, fucking Dish kept breaking up. Hardly watched 30 minutes of Bill Maher’s comeback episode
- Sometimes it’s nice to go where everybody knows your name; and pronounce it right.
- My brother says to me “A ና F ለመስጠት ከሆነ ባትመጣ ይሻላል” Goes on to mention how Makerere’s scientists managed to change waste matter to fuel. አዬ! Makerere 3rd in Africa, እኛ ፩፮ኛ, እንዴት ታወዳድረናለህ? This despite the comments made by the president of our university when he got wind of the rankings: “THEን ፩፮ ጊዜ ልቾ በሉት! ከአንድ አስከ አስርማ አናጣም!” All things considered, my heart is so full of hope for the future and my eyes full of sleep at present. Weariness.
- Weariness keeping me from reading as much as I would like to. Seminal publications on Science, The Economist, Playboy,… I wish I spent much less time wandering aimlessly across the internet.
- I have become/continued to be so error-prone. ሰው ከስህተቱ ይማራል ይባላል ስህተት ከኔ ሊማር ምንም አልቀረውም::
- I still can’t wrap my head around how geek glasses came to be all the rage. Makes one a believer in the human capacity to change (to the starting point) I am wearing glasses with the thickest frames since 11th grade. I lost my old one to the water.
- My boy getting mad poonanny; a dedication for him:
ቆይ ግን አስቴር ካቡ ላይ “…እሸው የኔ ጌታ…” ነው የምትለው?
German beers drunk. Now ready to tumble into bed. Coming as it did at the end of the week on which I finished Stalingrad, I just know it is not going to end well for the Germans.
We will see tomorrow.
