Free Iraqi

I want to call your attention to a blog that I have been reading for awhile.
Ali is a man is an Iraqi gentleman, who lives in Baghdad. His insight, commentary and perspectives paint a balanced picture of what is really happening in the Iraq. Ali commentary comes from an honest place within himself. His posts are not biased or influenced by the American or World Media. He glories in the gift of free speech.
He speaks of the cultures and beliefs that divide his country.
He speaks about the Sunni insurgency from the perspective of a free Iraqi.
He speaks of the American Military presence from the balanced perspective of a "Freed" Iraqi.
He speaks of the formulation of the new government without the bias of a preferred party, belief system, or foreigners influence.
He was "out" for bit and is now back in the blogosphere.
We are glad you are back, and above all, safe, Ali. Please continue to teach us what your world is about...
And thank you.

The Rules of Drunk Dialing

I stole this off my daughter's (the hairdresser) blog at My Space:

The 20 Rules of Drunk Dialing

1. Only drunk dial when you are drunk. Everything else is false advertisement.

2. It is okay to call someone 27 times in one night. If you don't remember it, it didn't happen.
3. If you are going to drunk dial a family member, say something nice. Ex. "Mom I'm in McDonald's and they're playing our song. I love you" (
4. Dirty talk while drunk dialing is always preferred. Who doesn't want to hear your best raspy, phone sex voice at 3 in the A.M. asking to bend them over something.
5. Voicemails are always better. This way your friend can let their friends have fun at your expense for days, even weeks to come.
6. Drunk texting is alright... If you are prepared to read what you wrote the next day when you are sober.
7. It is definitely a good idea to call all of your exes and remind them that you were the best lover they've ever had and everything they know, they learned from you. This way you can sleep well at night.
8. You can also call this same ex and let him/her know, that you know, that he/she still loves you. Then explain to him/her that I would still love me too!
9. If you are a frequent dialer, never get mad if someone dials you. Be happy they thought of you in this special time.
10. It is always a good idea to sing on someone's answering machine or voicemail. Especially a show tune.
11. Drunk dialing should be fun and light hearted or dirty and sex-crazed...Never angry.
12. Most likely you will never drunk dial your best friends. They are usually the ones taking your phone away and reminding you that "you have a problem".

13. If you deleted a number sober, it was probably for a good reason. Do not try to retrieve this number. Nothing good can come from it.
14. Always call someone you know. Finding random numbers in phone books is bad and usually leads to angry dialing.
15. If your cell phone dies, remember everything happens for a reason. Never borrow a friend's phone to do your dialing.
16. Drunk dialing to foreign country is usually too costly to be a good idea. But if you really feel like if you don't call this person you'll just die, break rule 15 and use a friend's phone.
17. Drunk dialing may lead to drunk muffin stuffing.... Be prepared.
18. When dialing remember that "hanging out" at 3 A.M. usually doesn't involve cards, it's probably going to be more like cheap lube and handcuffs. So be prepared when you really do want to play X-box when your drunk..... "you want me to do what with your box? Play with it?"
19. Don't drunk dial in the pool, tub, or rainstorm. It only ends upwith you blow drying your phone when your far too drunk to be using electronics and you won't be able to drunk dial anymore that night.
20. Never, I repeat, never drunk dial your boss, preacher, grandpa, or friend's parents. If you are that hard up to call someone, there is an 800 number on Budweiser boxes. The person on the other line always sounds cute, plus I think they are used to drunks.

There are some things I don't need to know about my kids.

I have been trying to upload my pictures of our trip...can't seem to hit it when it's actually working. Dang. I am anxious to show them to you all. I guess I could use Flickr or Frappr and make an album. thinking Clance'...
