Next time do the Iraqi thing and throw your shoe at the president. Given the state of the country it is clear that the Iraqi way is not always the best, but it is always more entertaining.
I read in the news that Muntadhar al-Zaidi, the Iraqi journalist who threw his shoe at the then US President George Bush, is being released from prison this week. Perhaps Rep. Joe Wilson can hire him as a consultant to teach him proper Iraqi shoe throwing technique. President Obama would do well to take lessons from former US president on Iraqi shoe ducking. It doesn’t matter what you think of the former president, George Bush, you have to acknowledge that his ducking instincts where sharp in the face of the Iraqi shoe.
I like your comments and your style.
Do you think Obama has enough ducking skills or he needs a visit to Houston to see Bush!?
This may show that Zaidi way of expression is globalized!
Never throw in a shoe where a towel can be thrown in. And only throw in a towel if it is one you are quite sure you will never use again.
And at the risk of having a shoe thrown back at me, I really like the last part of your blog description without the first sentence. Because somehow I just have a great deal of trouble reconciling a lost woman with the straight-talking flamenco dancer who writes this blog.
Shoes for Iraq,
No shoe throwing involved 🙂 Perhaps you can suggest a more suitable tag line for my blog. I am open for suggestions.
I like "Elen Ghulam's blog" as a byline, which is very close to your existing byline.
Shoes for Iraq,
Thank you for your suggestion. I changed the byline. I sorta didn't like the byline either. Let me know if you have other suggestions.
It looks fine now, more "you". I like the way your header pictures alternate too.
