a grim moment

Neda Agha-Soltan, 26 year old Iranian civilian, was killed in Tehran just days ago. A rather gory youtube video of her death has been circulated on the internet and the woman is being held as a martyr and symbol of the riots going on in Iran against Ahmadenijad and the Ayatollah. The government will not allow her family to mourn her publicly and they have suppressed any public memorial efforts in the country, but her name is being spread on the internet like wildfire in brush.

It's always upsetting to me to see innocent blood shed like this. The woman was an innocent bystander, someone just trying to take part in freedoms that should be granted to every individual, and now she's just a memory, albeit a very fervent one. This is the reason I love being a part of the Western hemisphere, having the ability to blog as I like, wear what I like, listen to what I like; and it is also the reason why I regret not having as powerful a voice as I would like. People in this country can be so passionate about things, many of them insignificant in the grand scheme of things, and yet issues like the political strife, economic suffering, and antidevelopment schemes embedded in the very fabric of so many nations' culture, to wholly unnoticed. Women are life. Women exude and produce and create life even in the dryest, dankest, most dejected nooks of this planet. Why should we NOT be allowed to speak? Why do they try so hard to suppress us? I think the fact that regardless, we persevere, continue and succeed speaks volumes for itself, despite the silence that is so often forced upon us.

A woman called Hana posted a comment on Mr. Karroubi’s Web site: “I am alive but my sister was killed. She wanted the wind to blow into her hair; she wanted to be free; she wanted to hold her head high up and say: I am Iranian. My sister died because there is no life left; my sister died because there is no end to tyranny.”

Stay, Neda —

Look at this city

At the shaken foundations of palaces,

The height of Tehran’s maple trees,

They call us “dust,” and if so

Let us sully the air for the oppressor

Don’t go, Neda

Megan Fox looks like the type of girl you could have a tumble in the hay with, drink a couple of beers, watch a movie, and then not worry about those pesky 'Do you still love me?' phone calls. Or at least in real life. I love women like that. I aspire to be one. Yay independent sexy, lol.

Movie was pretty good, even though I went to a hood theater, and had to drag myself from bed this morning b/c I thought it brilliant to see the very late show. Just had a VERY large coffee with an espresso shot, and now face a day with nothing to do and annoying work tasks. I think that unemployment is looking better every day.

father's day

pardon the demented faces. i'm SO tired. got insufficient sleep last night (again). went to brunch with my dad then got roped into driving to long island, but he DID buy me 2 coach pouches from a nifty little thrift shop in amazing condition. the leather is so heavy and coarse and i finally have a 'ladylike' purse. my daddy's shopping habits rival my own. of course, he's financially capable of carrying on such nonsense...so thanks for picking up the tab, pops. i DID pay for brunch...(totally excuses it). so i just climbed, very wrinkled and very sleepy, out of his car and into pj's. going to do some house marathoning/video gaming and cook for the week. yay. i'm SO fun.

enjoy your father's day everyone! love your dads, men, brothers, pretty much anyone with sperm gets a free pass today.

parking lot

just saw HANGOVER. holy f*&%ing crap. i nearly wet my pants. HILARIOUS. GO SEE IT NOW.

oh, IN OTHER NEWS, this weekend i spent 5 hours in the emergency room;
learned that one should never do one's nails and then run out of the house with shoes on FOR ANY REASON;
doing yoga for 1.5 hours, dancing for another 5 hours, walking around manhattan in 5 inch stilettos, and then riding a local train alone to the bronx while scantily clad do NOT a happy Saturday morning make;
tonsillitis can strike when LEAST expected;
and shopping in the 'special people' neighborhood can make even the rainiest days worthwhile.
