First thunderstorm of the year

Nothing like driving through a heavy thunderstorm with Globus and Immediate coming out of the speakers at a rather high volume. Makes me grin in a somewhat feral way.

The Iran elections

Lots and lots of peeps on top of this, just want to point out a few highlights:

- @persiankiwi (Twitter)  is a young Iranian student living in Tehran, trying to keep the rest of the world updated. They hop from proxy dial-up to dial-up, trying to stay connected and ahead of the Iranian government's blockage of most of the internet.
- @austinheap (Twitter) is out of San Fransico, and is keeping a list of viable proxies for Iranians to use. There is also something about DDoSing the Iranian government's servers, I'll let your conscious dictate whether you think that would be helpful or not.
- @StopAhmadi (Twitter) is a Mousavi supporter who has good, current news and occasionally horrible pictures of the beatings the Iranian police are dishing out to their own people.
- nov11110 has a lot of videos up on YouTube from Tehran. Everything's in Arabic.

Much like the Bangladesh protests from a couple of years ago, I find myself watching this very closely. All I can do is pass the information along, so that no-one I know can say they didn't know.

I already know I'm going to hell

...this just makes it even more official, or something. ;-)

Over on ONTD_P is an article about a couple of Cuban-Americans who nearly got attacked by a bunch of McCain supporters. In all of the usual OMGWTF posts, there was a "Jesus tapdancing on a cracker" response. Someone then asked for a picture of that.

December 25th

I don't celebrate the birth of the Christ anymore, so no real holiday greetings, other than to wish you the best for whatever you may celebrate this time of year.

I enjoy the time off, the excuse to visit family, the un-looked for gifts, and the time to sleep away the long cold (for me, anyways) winter days.

May today and every day be everything you need in life.
