Yeah, I don't like this one bit. I hope she knows she's going to need to blog more often so we know she's alive.

I had two students from Afghanistan. Their eyes looked weary. Like an old person's eyes in a child's body is the best way I can describe it.

I felt the same way about the Cambodians when I worked in the refugee camp, they just looked emotionally haggard.

It's got to do something to you. Just like you see people here in their 50's who look 30.
 
Is Tina still in England?

For a little while longer. Then she'll be here in the US for a bit then OFF TO AFGHANISTAN!

(Yes, a number of us have already 1. taken her to task for choosing to go to Afghanistan and 2. accepted the fact - grudgingly - that she's a grown up and can make her own decisions and 3. begged her to stay safe.)
 
Just in case the links don't do it. Here is a quote. Some of the folks talked about in the quote aren't here much anymore. Or sadly at all.

Quote:
So you're new to the PoHo thread?

1) Congratulations!
2) Best of luck to you.

The PoHo thread works in standard thread fashion, but unlike standard threads, the PoHo thread goes on and on and on ad infinitum. At first glance, the posts appear to be complete nonsense with little or no continuity, but upon closer inspection, the thread reveals itself to adhere strictly to an underlying order and pattern. Any random thousand posts can be broken down like so:

Posts 1-20:

PoHos alternately congratulate, insult, demean, mock, or debate the validity of, whoever successfully scored the K.

Posts 21-969:

Consists of several sub-patterns, which may appear in any order, these being:

Greetings
--Multiple pages of PoHos bidding each other good morning or good night.

Children pictures.
--People with children or grandchildren will post pictures of them being adorable, everyone will ooh and aww because all PoHos have adorable children. Uncle Elvis will tear up, I will wield the word 'headlice' like a weapon. People with older children will talk about how their children are older.

Animal pictures.
--People will randomly start posting animal pictures for no reason other than they feel like it. Animal pictures will be either really adorable/really terrifying/of animals whose names can be interpreted as sexual innuendo. Mike the Chin will at some point post pictures of his 8 billion dogs, and everyone will try and figure out how he tells them apart for two pages, and then give up when it becomes apparent that all his dogs look exactly the same.

Tack vs Bbycrts.
--Tim and Jon will have it out for multiple pages at a time. Hilarity ensues.

Australia Bashing.
--Usually occurs at some point during the Tim/Jon showdown. The words "tim tam," "vegemite," and "kangaroo" will be repeated often.

England Bashing.
--Not so much bashing as it is drooling over accents. Generally Shane will then pop in to tell the American PoHos how American they are.

Bermuda Bashing.
--Not so much bashing as it is mistakenly calling it "The Bahamas."

Canada Bashing.
--Is a national pastime.

Hot Guy Pictures.
--Female PoHos drool, male PoHos post a terrifying picture of a nun in retaliation.

Hot Girl Pictures.
--Usually take the form of one of Sally's daughters.

Boobs.
--Discussions lasting way too long ensue.

Sexual Innuendo.
--Pages and pages and pages of it. Uncle Elvis will at some point use the phrase "bite your face off."

Life in Hawaii.
--Damon will post pictures of rainbows or sand, and everyone will discuss how much better it would be to live in a place where the sun shines. Sally and California will give Damon a run for his money in paradise, in the end, they're the only two that win.

Mim's House.
--Heated discussions as to whether or not Mim should get a yak or an emu. Or both.

Obscure References.
--To Dr. Who, Angels and Demons, The Princess Bride, Harry Potter, WWII, ad infinitum.

Uke Jam Rehashes.
--Someone will go to a uke jam, discussions of uke jam ensue. Uncle Elvis will post awesome posters of the ones he runs, and everyone will need copies because that man is a genius.

Buying Ukes.
--Someone will buy/see/sell a uke, discussions ensue.

Punctuation.
--JT makes fun of Stephen. Jon corrects everybody.

Actual Serious Topics.
--PoHos discuss actual serious problems and issues pertaining to our lives. Support is given freely, everyone feels better. Discussion eventually devolves into sexual innuendo. Uncle Elvis wants to bite your face off.

UU
--PoHos mock controversial threads and the people who post in them in the most indirect way possible, to avoid getting in trouble. The words "cult" and "clique" get thrown into circulation. Someone, usually me, will unfailingly suggest we wear capes.

Matt Lindahl
--Will appear. Multiple pages ensue about how we wish we were Matt Lindahl.

Seeso and Zoe
--Will appear. Multiple pages ensue about how we wish we were Seeso and Zoe.

Sam the Eagle
--Will appear, generally after the sexual innuendo or boobs discussion, in an attempt to bring everyone into a family-friendly line. Sam the Eagle will eventually be chased out in a barrage of female anatomy.

PoHo Counts
--At least one post a day will be devoted to posting how many PoHos are reading the thread at the same moment you are. Then several other posts encouraging them to post/take off their invisibility cloaks will ensue. If new non-PoHos are reading the thread, they will be encouraged to post, but they generally don't.

Posts 970-1000:

Someone will realize the K is coming up. Two people usually start sprinting for it. Other people join in. Finally, someone else will attempt to swipe the K. There will be much indignation and Australia-bashing. K will be achieved. Cycle starts all over again.

And there you have it! That's how we work! Welcome to the fold! We're getting capes soon.

It's amazing how many people mentioned in this aren't around here any more. I miss them...
 
Just got the new issue of Alpaca Culture in the mail.

Anything exciting in the world of alpacas? Have they managed to convince you to get a herd of them? There MUST be a craftsperson around Nashville who would buy the wool from you...
 
Freeda hasn't peed yet. Or at least, she hadn't at the time you posted this.

She's busy shipping me new clothes. OMG, you have no idea how many pieces of clothing I've ordered from her. That LuLaRoe stuff is addictive. Meow I'm ordering pieces for my daughters. I have to STOP!
