Hey everyone, I've been assaulted over the past few weeks by the pincer movement of sinus infection and the Armenian New Year Celebration (and as for the latter, it is a DOOSIE). Trapped in the house, wrapped in blankets, forbidden to shower for fear of chilling aftereffects, and yet called to the table every hour for vodka shots with numerous known and unknown family members, our intrepid hero finished Dostoevsky's "The Brothers Karamazov" (incredible, highly recommended), Life of Pi (another great and much quicker read), and fought (or encouraged?) bitterness and apathy by playing hours of ancient sega games on his laptop. We're past the storm now, and what's more, NANCY CHANDLER, that unstoppable weed-picker and soil-digger, flies in this evening. We'll begin a whirlwind tour of Armenia, complete with cross-country skiing and tables, tables laden with bountiful hospitality. Many stories to be told next week, I'm sure. Stay tuned...
