Halloween!

Today is going to be a wonderful day! 15 degrees and sunny. Quite the difference from winter-like conditions a few days ago. Haha that's good, but I still don't have a costume. I don't feel like going out at ALL! Does that mean I'm an old fart? No maybe it means that I want to spend some precious moments with my loved ones. I've invited my girlfriend over to help me greet the children coming at the door saying "Trick or Treat!"

I wonder how my cat is going to react to all the people coming in and out! Ha ha ha.

This Halloween, like last, my mom prepared a basket of "Ghouls" to house the candies. Lucky kids haha

I am going to try and convince her not to put any Mars Bars inside them, because they contain milk powder. I for one will not have kidney stones on my conscience. Those things suck. And I don't want any myself. It takes a long time for the effects of melamine poisoning to take place. There's been reports of an epidemic in children's kidney stones in the U.S.A.

Beware Candy with Milk Powder!!



This is very dangerous, potential melamine in our food stream!! Today they found EGGS with melaminejust DON'T EAT CANDY!!!

Melamine is an organic base and a trimer of cyanamide, with a 1,3,5-triazine skeleton. Like cyanamide, it contains 66% nitrogen by mass and, if mixed with resins, has fire retardant properties due to its release of nitrogen gas when burned or charred, and has several other industrial uses. Melamine is also a metabolite of cyromazine, a pesticide. It is formed in the body of mammals who have ingested cyromazine.[2] It has been reported that cyromazine can also be converted to melamine in plants.[3][4]
Melamine combines with cyanuric acid to form melamine cyanurate, which has been implicated in the Chinese protein export contaminations.

BP has seen its latest quarterly profits more than double, buoyed by record high oil prices.




Oil prices hit an all-time high of $147 a barrel in July, but have since fallen back sharply to about $62 this week.
Reporting its results for the three months from July to September, BP's replacement cost profit totalled $10bn (£6.4bn), up 148% from a year earlier.

BP said high prices had "obviously helped our absolute result", despite the recent sharp fall.BP chief executive Tony Hayward said that oil prices could decline further as the world enters a recession."I believe that BP is well-positioned to cope with such volatility," he said."We think the current turmoil may in fact create opportunities for us and we will look at those very closely." source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7694508.stm

I take issue with these bastards who go around raping countries with the full approval of their governments, allowing them to be mercenary pirates. The most astounding issue is that de-regulated inflation of the oil prices became THE issue since 2001.
What can make a company accountable to any government in this post 9-11 post GulfWarII era?  

Well the Mechanisms are in place, now apply them! Try these bastards on the platform of :
Economic Terrorism!  

But you'll never see that happening.  The heads of these companies and the boards are filled with friends of government ministers and kick-back taking government-leaders and policy-makers. (So what if I don't have the right facts to back me up?
Well, luckily the precedents are there: Who lies to the public more: Corporations or Politicians? And where do we really need to draw the line? In 2004 Shell had been involved in a Scandal involving making up completely FICTIONAL Oil Reserves Numbers that 2-3 years after this report about Crude Oil Price/Barrel was published in 2002, has become a reality of inflated sky-rocketing gas prices.  Wikipedia on Oil Reserves Estimates

Meanwhile, in other rape news:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7675234.stm
Cuba claims massive oil reserves
Cuba currently produces 60,000 barrels of oil a day 
The state-owned Cuban oil company says the country may have more than 20bn barrels of oil in its offshore fields - more than double the previous estimate.Now tell me, isn't this just an open invitation to foreign investors (read Rich Unscrupulous Bastards) looking to re-invest the money they just took out of (Developing Nations) and place it in Cuba's hands?  I don't forsee a war soon, but seriously Cubans? Do you HAVE to proclaim your OIL WEALTH NOW? What were you waiting for? 

NOW THAT CASTRO IS GONE IT'S TIME TO PARTY IN A CUM-GUZZLING CAPITALIST WAY THAT ONLY RAUL KNOWS HOW??! 

*HEY AMERICANT'S COME AND GET IT!! IT'S TRICK OR TREAT BABY! OH YEAH! HALLOWEEN'S COME EARLY! NOW YOU HAVE AN EXCUSE FOR THE OIL INDUSTRY, I MEAN, OIL MERCENARIES, I MEAN, AMERICAN ARMY, TO GET OUT OF THE IRAQ FIASCO AND ALMOST GUARANTEE THAT THE DEMOCRATS MAKE AMAZING HEADWAY IN THE REALM OF GEO-POLITICS!

We are all upset. But why is this funny? Snorgtees.com has made me smile.

I think it's because it's a talking jug of milk and a talking cow.

Then I think it's because the cow has horns and is a bull.

Then realize, that bulls don't have udders, but cows don't have bulls-horns.

And Cows can't really  be fathers, can they?

Aha. This picture is still very funny!

Well I found out that there's a new science developing: 

Deciphering the stars.  Apparently each star has its own frequency. CakeWalk you're going to love the noise of these stars.

Our sun's music rocks too!


Do try and listen to the sound of the universe! Isn't it awesome!?!?!?!??! My life just took an awe struck turn. In other news: I hope that I've got you on the edge of your seats for my upcoming article "Excrement - Part 2"

Excrement

While I'd love to write a large entry today, I think I'll stick with Medium.  

There's much to be said about taking the Middle Path: The Straight Path: Not the Right or Left Path: The Hidden Path: The Hard Path: The Solitary Path: The Moral Path: The Drawing of Courage Path: Thrice Is a Charm Path: Gibberish Path: The Outlier Path: The Statistical Anomaly Path: Potential Path: Pave Your Own Path: My Path: Rough Path: Eerie Path: zero path: Jungle Path: Desert Path: Forest Path: City Path: Town Path: Village Path: Street Path: Mind Path: Leader's Path: Follower's Path: Educator's Path: Artist's Path: Warrior's Path: Rogue's Path: Noble Path: Scoundrel's Path: Beggar's Path: Jester's Path: Usurper's Path: King's Path.

Since I define all of these paths to each other... let's work with the premise that all of these paths have something in common:  The Middle Path.

What Motivates me?

Well I believe today is my thirteenth day on the blogging circuit.  My friend asked me : "What motivates me?" 

I think that the most empowering thing I ever realised was this: "The Pen is Mightier than the Sword." 

I believe that this is an insufficient answer, but this blog, or journal, whatever you call it, is for consumption! 

What ever I post here, I envisage thousands of people reading it and sharing whatever joys, sorrows, horrors, and amusements that it has to offer.

I feel strongly about sharing fun or cool information, and I feel greatly satisfied by the time I click "Publish Post" and share it with everyone.

77 frames:

When a politician decides to serve his country, in a leadership position, what he is really doing is putting himself under a voluntary "deep cover" project within the 'other' that he is trying to gain confidence from.  

There is no such thing as the "American People" There are only numbers.  Whoever gets to play the part of 'Number One'  in the great theatre that is politics, is simply pandering to the modern tastes of the cyber punk crowd.

What a toothless bunch of cyber punks we've turned out to be!

Frames  
If I chose to wrench my life out of its comfy living style, would I do it for curiosity?  I wonder if any president has ever said "I wonder if they'll let me be president next year?

President of what exactly? Isn't there necessarily a 'class' that is being 'administered' 

I was class president. I was nominated in eighth grade while I was napping on my table.  I was number 3 in my class..naturally smart, well-read, no effort needed.  Number 2 was a rote-memorizer, and Number 1 was a girl called Layal, who sometimes switched places with Number 2.

The real reason that I was constantly number 3 was because I broke the code of my Finals:  There's really no pressure.. If a teacher likes you, she's going to pass you! I became framed from then: If I don't want to run through these loops: Then the system can go to hell! They don't have such a thing as a beating stick anymore! So for my final exams, I would barely study for my Arabic classes..I'd do the memorization, finish the grammar section, and then cruise past the poetry....only to come to the giant section called Composition.

Now here's where I floundered, because A: the questions were so banal and barely understandable to me and, B: There was the question of: I've never BEEN in the situation they're asking me to write about.

For example, "Write about the beauty of the park while on a picnic with your family"

Now this question is so difficult to answer when you're a young renaissance man.  Well: The beauty of the park while I'm on a picnic with my family?

Well. Firstly, you've got to understand that the question that needs to be answered is about something that I've never experienced, until now: Well I didn't have the ability to put up a hyperlink to a photoalbum that I spent time picturing, and appreciating the wonderful qualities of:  Because as a kid, I didn't think of descriptions as a form of coded imagery. 

That was garbage! I thought of descriptions as a method of story telling, and that was it:  I didn't have the vocabulary to discuss the playing of light and sound on the earth, and the symmetrical beauty of the plants, the frolicking laissez-faire attitudes of the ducks on their final practice run down a stretch of river before, finally, launching into their journey south.

The sad thing is that the English department was reticent in giving equally difficult assignments..Because then I'd be able to breeze through the arabic portion.  You see I relied heavily on English in order to translate straight into AraBIC.  But during the Final Exam, you see, I decided to be cool.  One day I said "Fuck it" during a Mid term, and I just left the room 40 minutes early. 

The teacher said "you could've written anything and your mark would have been way higher!"

The next period of examinations was the Final exam.  Then I decided to write a few empty sentences just to secure a 70...And I did it! It was so simple to do! 

But I was still always 3rd.

And In my capacity for student government, I managed to organize the entire 3 sets of classes, negotiated between the head teachers of all the disciplines, and boldly suggested that the classes go on a giant field trip to wonderland in Dubai!

Well we did it!

Then on the way back, the satiated and happy children rebelled on me! They started tormenting me in the bus! I was trying hard to be a good example and they knew that they had me in a Vice Grip.  Other than that, I feel that, maybe, Omar Raggal had way too much sugar and got slightly jealous of my cool hat that I bought, with Indiana Jones Flaps to cover the neck.

And that no matter how HARD he tried...There would be no way that he could ever organise such a huge thing himself.  Because of how hard he tried....things got in his way, just for the sake of it.  Because I tried only as much as was necessary, and allowed things to take their course, then things worked out well...until the end. (There is a darker, under-belly, to this story, that bears mentioning: I have never been the same ever sine, the pressures of being a good boy versus being a bad boy versus being a victim versus being a victimiser really took its toll.  I became much more complex and yet, so very simple, after that affair.

Finally, I must return to my original topic:  I don't believe that the people who volunteer to be politicians have any false impressions: They all know that there's a much higher Common Denominator: Whatever YOU want it to be! 

I organized the logistics to take 100 people on a free organized bus tour: The vagrants in each class had to be convinced not to rebel openly in class for 3 weeks, and I succeeded.

I think those bastards realised oh so late, that they had been beaten by one of their own.  In that way, I feel as if they banded together for the common goal: Teach Dr.Oats a Lesson.

Well, I was out of there, I left that system, and all those people, long behind me.. 

I hope they're well.

Conservatives love dismantling programs. By flipping OAC into grade 12 here in Ontario, by 2002,  with a conservative premiere in power for almost a decade, I would swear that they reduced the average intelligence of the province and turned all the children into `output`: Into human resource fit for turning into cash cows and money-centric insensitives.

So Long, And Thanks for All the Fish

This Halloween, I'll be dressing up. But as what?

I have a few choices: I could choose something horrific, something terrific, something angelic,but I'd prefer something ironic.  

I think my costume: Mexican Space Cowboy from Mars has been over done, though.

Any suggestions?

Down Down...Saddam

I am so disappointed with our voter turnout!  This government has no mandate! No one wants to play the game.  Kids: Remember, without your votes, there will BE no change.

However, not to worry, I am sure, just look into Harper's eyes and go back to sleep..

lull a bye, baby, on a treetop, lull a bye baby, etc...


Talk to you later.

Dastardly

I miss cartoons with morals, where, for example, after vanquishing the enemy, the hero would have a 5 minute segment discussing the right from the wrong, and the morally incorrect decisions that someone in the cartoon made that almost led to catastrophic consequences, only barely saved from the brink of destruction by the strength and wits of the main character.


I miss you guys!

Captain Planet, He's the Hero, Gonna take Pollution Down to Zero!

Thunder, Thunderr, Thunderrrr, Thunder Cats -= HO!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Turtles Power!

and Finally:

By the Power of Grey Skull, I am HE-MAN!

In a tribute to later eras,

50 Thousand Dollars

What would you do if you were offered fifty thousand dollars in 12 weeks? With an initial investment of five thousand? Would you believe it? Would it matter?  It would, because the investment would be in yourself. Isn't that insane? You have to believe in yourself and trust yourself before you can multiply your initial investment of five thousand dollars and multiply it ten-fold.

I have no understanding of whether this is possible during the current economic times, however, I do believe that this concept is strange, weird, and relatively timely, considering some of the things I have asked the universe for. Among other things, I wrote on a piece of paper "Show me the money".  And here it is being shown to me.  I am too scared to waste 5 thousand dollars. 

However, let me create a little snapshot of how much money I have wasted so far since 2003
(Granted I am being dramatical)

n Thousand Dollars x 2 years on Chemical Engineering : Wasted. No Degree
x Thousand Dollars x 2 years on Classical Civilisation: Wasted. No Degree.
y Thousand Dollars per month x 12 months : Wasted. Cigarettes, Take-Out, and Booze.

Comparatively..

Five thousand dollars is a drop in the Ocean.  And the only catch is: I would have to constantly work hard, doing something infuriatingly easy, and get paid to do it, as long as I am willing to put up 10% of the Five Thousand Dollars, and pay an annuity.

WHAT in the NAME of the UNIVERSE should I DO?

What would YOU DO?

facebook users

well I knew an attack was inevitable...but I didn`t know how quickly and from whom.  My page was reported as ABUSIVE by someone on facebook. I don`t quite know the details but I have a niggling suspicion that it was a certain woman from a small town in Turkey,  who has discussed with me the concept of `kurdish` and claims that there is no such thing as kurdistan.  I believe that she is correct in syntax, but I exclaimed with wonderment as to the relevancy of her comment on a posting I made dealing with the areas of majority kurdish settlement.  As usual, there is no reasoning with these people. 

Unfortunately, literally thousands of websites with anything to do with kurd or kurdistan or kurdish have been hacked by hackers, mainly turkish hackers, who crack the passwords, then deface the page, then pull down the website.

Unfortunately, there is nothing to be done about these people as they do not believe in free speech nor do they understand Irony. 

I believe that the most likely candidate as to why the website was reported as abusive was the header line: `shine brighter than the snow capped kurdish mountains`or whatever i wrote.

Well here`s to the end of a good time. May harrassment end soon.  If not, I personally have no power to stop it.

If anyone knows a way to get facebook contacted about this issue I would greatly appreciate it.

Vote "smartly"

Due to its relevancy: Here is a letter I sent to editors of ~20 newspapers in canada.  I have no idea if it was published, but whomever is reading this blog.. I hope it strikes a chord.

Dear Editor,

Stephen Harper is "not his own man" and he should be stopped. Mr. Harper: If you can not take responsibility for a speech you personally delivered in 2003, advocating that Canada join the U.S. in its war against Iraq, then you have no credibility in this election. As far as I'm concerned, this means that you still support the idea of sending our soldiers to die, in wars, for unclear reasons. President Bush seems to have a lot of influence over you, Mr. Harper.

If Harper had sold Canada on that plan, then he would not have had any credibility in this election. Until I heard about the plagiarism, I was happy to remain in denial about Harper's agenda of following American/Australian Right Wing Foreign Policy.

Clearly, if he can not read an original speech about sending Canada to war, then he should not be allowed to have a majority government! He is against positive change, against free speech, and against truly protecting the environment.

It seems that he is driven by ancient motivations of greed and glory. His presence as Prime Minister would further lower the benchmark by which the world will judge Canadians. I think that his leadership is a danger to Canada.

• I urge all Canadians to vote "Smartly", and visit voteforenvironment.ca where you can see which party is most likely to win in your area. It is based on polls taken in your riding.

Sincerely,


Dr. Oats

Hello Again

Today it's a beautiful, wonderful, happy, thanks giving here in Toronto. The weather was glorious. I went to a small, pristine, clean, lake.  There I just sat on a rock and contemplated my hang over.  Haha... the sun was shining in my eye and reflecting off the lake as it was setting. I felt like the future was very very bright.. in my mind's eye.

I am certain that I have never heard anything so ludicrous as what I heard someone tell me today: They have never voted, and never will, because they think that the new party is always worse than the old party.  Total and Complete shroud over a mind that's essentially pleasant.  But how stupid? I asked : Don't you think you'd rather prefer to CHOOSE to whom your money goes? The answer: NO.  HAHAHA well...... Taxes and then some....  A tax on the stupid.  I have a mission: Do not feel contempt for the lesser beings.. But how sad that this is the state of our democracy.

In other words of wisdom, I have updated the video bar with some interesting key words, it produced some wonderful choices.  Thanks for watching.  

There's a great book in my posession called "The Silmarillion" and it is J.R.R. Tolkien's massive effort from his early days until his death, to create a parallel mythology to which he attributed his stories of the Hobbit.  

I will give you an excerpt from a letter to his friend Milton Waldman, 1951: 
"Anyway all this stuff* is mainly concerned with Fall, Mortality, and the Machine.  With Fall inevitably, and that motive occurs in several modes.  With Mortality, especially as it affects art and the creative (or as I should say, sub-creative) desire which seems to have no biological function, and to be apart from the satisfactions of plain ordinary biological life, with which, in our world, it is indeed usually at strife.  This desire is at once wedded to a passionate love of the real primary world, and hence filled with the sense of mortality, and yet unsatisfied by it.  It has various opportunities of "Fall". It may become possessive, clinging to the things made as its own, the sub-creator wishes to be the Lord and the God of his private creation.  He will rebel against the laws of the Creator-especially against mortality.  Both of these (alone or together) will lead to the desire for Power, for making the will more quickly effective, - and so to the Machine (or Magic).  By the last I intend all use of external plans or devices (apparatus) instead of developments of the inherent inner powers or talents or even the use of these talents with the corrupted motive of dominating: bulldozing the real world, or coercing other wills. The Machine is our more obvious modern form though more closely related to Magic than is usually recognised.

I have not used 'magic' consistently, and indeed the Elven-queen Galadriel is obliged to remonstrate with the Hobbits on their confused use of the word both for the devices and operations of the Enemy, and for those of the Elves.  I have not, because there is not a word for the latter( since all human stories have suffered the same confusion).  But the Elves are there (in my tales) to demonstrate the difference.  Their magic is Art, delivered from many of its human limitations: more effortless, more quick, more complete (product, and vision in unflawed correspondence).  And its object is Art not Power, sub-creation not domination and tyrannous reforming of Creation.  The 'Elves' are 'immortal', at least as far as this world goes: and hence are concerned rather with the griefs and burdens of deathlessness in time and change, than with death.  The Enemy in successive forms is always 'naturally' concerned with  sheer Domination, and so the Lord of magic and machines; but the problem: that this frightful evil can and does arise from an apparently good root, the desire to benefit the world and others**-speedily and according to the benefactors own plans - is a recurrent motive.


* It is, I suppose, fundamentally concerned with the problem of the relation of Art(and Sub-creation) and Primary Reality."
**Not in the Beginner of Evil: his was a sub-creative Fall, and hence the Elves (the representatives of sub-creation par excellence) were peculiarly his enemies, and the special object of his desire and hate - and open to his deceits.  Their Fall is into possessiveness and (to a less degree) into perversion of their art to power."

What I liked about this man's letter is that his thoughts are a precursor to a lot of the world's fantasy and his philosophies are extremely relevant in this day and age of faeries and gods and fantasies all shrouded as 'religion' and 'politics' and we must realise that lessons must be taken from the venerated people of the past, so that we don't end up with a new, even more naive and ignorant world.  

Tolkien also said 

 " I dislike Allegory - the conscious and intentional allegory - yet any attempt to explain the purport of myth or fairytale must use allegorical language. (And, of course, the more life a story has the more readily will it be susceptible of allegorical interpretations: while the better a deliberate allegory is made the more nearly will it be acceptable just as a story.) Anyway all this stuff*...[continued in first quotation]"

Obviously, do not take things TOO seriously... but ponder! 
This is a quick update for those of you who want to know :

My goal is 10,000$ before I leave this country for a holiday. My mind needs to consume freely and I need to digest it all. The location of my new internship is my house :)  I am so cool :[]

Goooood Morning Ontario

I love to dance, and this morning, when I woke up, I played my new favourite song "Gangsta Nation"-Ice Cube.  I didn't realize how much room my room has for me to dance in! I cleared all the clutter and now I am so happy! The floor is hard-wood square panels composed of 4 rectangular sections stuck together in varying up/down orientations.  I Removed the Rug "RtR" and rolled up the thing.  IT was so wide!

I think the reason it took up so much psychological space, is that the damn thing is not mine! I am always conscious of not ruining it.  It's cut in the middle that connects the two halves and I don't want a broken ancient rug on my hands! 

In Other news:  There is a strong chance that this election will become the vanguard of a new generation of activists: Lazy and bored.  

The movement is in your living room! I think that it is important to note: Most people in north america aren't people, they're "Interpeople" and their thoughts are directed by the websites they visit.  This is, in my opinion, slightly better than TV, but on the flipside, they're isolated, and prone to being stuck in their own world far too long to see rationally. Imagine all the scenarios, if you could, and think of the horror!! THE HORROR!!!  These social sites are places like pitstops on the internet.  Some people love pit-stops, and this internet happens to be a free place, where there is no emotional obligation to buy drink or stuff.  However....The internet2.0 will be coming soon.  If you noticed, I have some widgets attached to my website.  Do you know why? So I'll be ready.

Widgets are essential in the new internet.  They are targeted advertisements that can potentiall cost 0$ to make and very little time and effort.  Just a little imagination.  Consider this an invitation, to my gangsta nation.  I plan to rise in the ranks somehow, but where and when. And for what? 

I mean: I have nothing stopping me from doing what I want, except for fear of unknown evils that I may bring upon myself.  Strangely, after writing this past sentence, I realize how stupid this sounds. 

Well, That's a strange introduction:  Chemical Engineers and Classical Civilisationists UNITE! To form a union of engineering change in modern society! I go so far to presume that>>>>I am a Renaissance Man....

Now to become a Renaissance Super Man..!!

Hello everyone. 

I hope you are well. I am pleased to announce that I have awarded the positions #1 simultaneously to 2 people. I hope that makes you pleased. I disagree with any backwards behaviour, so #0 also works.

Slightly Used, a poem by me

Hahaha, Well today I joined a group thinking it was what I thought it was.  "Dope Poets Society" is a group of toronto artist/musicians, and I thought that the facebook group belonged to the same group.  Well it weren't the case, it was a poetry group.  So i wrote a poem on the spot with no effort.

Slightly used,

Abused and refused.

Would you be amused?

I think that this poo

can smile back at you

only if you stand

closer to my hand :)

Vote "Smartly"

Dear Editor,

Stephen Harper is "not his own man" and he should be stopped. Mr. Harper: If you can not take responsibility for a speech you personally delivered in 2003, advocating that Canada join the U.S. in its war against Iraq, then you have no credibility in this election. As far as I'm concerned, this means that you still support the idea of sending our soldiers to die, in wars, for unclear reasons. President Bush seems to have a lot of influence over you, Mr. Harper.

If Harper had sold Canada on that plan, then he would not have had any credibility in this election. Until I heard about the plagiarism, I was happy to remain in denial about Harper's agenda of following American/Australian Right Wing Foreign Policy.

Clearly, if he can not read an original speech about sending Canada to war, then he should not be allowed to have a majority government! He is against positive change, against free speech, and against truly protecting the environment.

It seems that he is driven by ancient motivations of greed and glory. His presence as Prime Minister would further lower the benchmark by which the world will judge Canadians. I think that his leadership is a danger to Canada.

• I urge all Canadians to vote "Smartly", and visit voteforenvironment.ca where you can see which party is most likely to win in your area. It is based on polls taken in your riding.

Sincerely,


Delan Ahmad

Quick update, I am going to find out my career path today. Hooray~!

Tao Te Ching

Tao te ching is pronounced Dao de Jing. How crazy is it that a system to transliterate chinese letters needs a system on its own to pronounce it! Oh well, people do the dumbest things.

What a wonderful experience today! I went up the elevator in the famous peacock building Robarts Library, and Lo! My friends Matija and Irena were waiting at the top, as the door opened. I am not surprised. Based on my life's coincidences, things like that just make me happy to be alive.

The Lay of the Land

If you're reading this, please, tell me about your opinion:

do you like the lay-out?

Steady as she goes!

Thoroughly a fun time! Yesterday was a fantastic series of events. I happen to enjoy a very highly attuned sense of universe-coincidence. Among other things that happened yesterday, perhaps the most unusual was that I ran into an old friend from high-school, whom I've been thinking about since about three weeks ago, and who quit attending my university some years ago. While crossing the street towards my girl friend's office, I realized that I was going the wrong side of the road, and did an about-turn only to be confronted with a face I recognize, on a body that I don't!

Ha!
