January 20th, outsourced

As you read this, I am probably in the wilds of Oman. OK, or Muscat, on my way to the wilds. I don't have much for you, but what I do have, enjoy!

Have you ever wanted to read the classics with the genders reversed, so all the men are on the hunt for wives instead of the other way around? Here you go.

It's been twenty years since the fall of the Soviet Union. This makes me feel old, and happy.

I haven't actually taken it yet because I'm afraid of Season 2 spoilers, but here's a Downton Abbey personality quiz for you.

This is how they serve ice cream in Dubai. OF COURSE.

This is a gallery of the best street art of 2011. Some are funny, some are clever, some are beautiful, and some are downright disturbing. My personal favorite is the building painted to look like its teeth are falling out.

Have fun out in the wilderness. Loved the ice cream antics and the street art. I couldn't choose a favorite. How do they DO that??

The ice cream-- Wow. I don't think Americans could do that.

The street art-- Wow. Just, wow.

I know you're off having a blast, but when you get back, I'm dying to hear any response to the Farahani debate... either from you, or reactions that you've seen/heard.
