phil and brad and i went to the Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations fall party yesterday where brad works and had a fantastic time. The quote of the evening from a famous Arabic Language scholar (whom some of you know and love):

"After the Iraq war, my inbox became flooded with emails from people at Haliburtin asking me how to say the strangest things in Arabic. So I'd write back and say The Arabic word for bazooka, as far as I know is bazooka."

I love archaeologists, and epigraphers.



Afterwards some of us went back to my place and listened to the Victrola for a while, then we popped on up to Dr. Brad's and played pool until I couldn't keep my eyelids open anymore (about 10:15).
