Happy New Year!  
Eid-eh shomah mobarak! =D
(Happy Persian New Year!)

Nowruz (new year) is a perfectly secular holiday, so anyone can celebrate it. Too bad I was such an idiot and let it sneak up on me this year. I really wanted to set up a sofreh-ye haft-sin, which is essentially the equivalent of an Xmas tree for this holiday. Only it's not a tree, it's a table, and it's covered in stuff to promote luck, wealth, health, fertility, and prosperity in the new year. But I totally forgot.

At least my mom got hers set up, and my sister has promised me pictures!

Sheesh. Between the Superbowl, being sick, and Nowruz, it's like homesick++ for me right now.
Current Mood: okayokay

Happy Spring luv!!!

Hey - at least you're not as bad as Barry. He was supposed to propose to me on the first day of Spring, which is today. He thought it was tomorrow so now he must ask my father for my hand in marriage on steak and blowjob day.

Hang on, I thought Steak and Blowjob Day was March 14! One month after Valentine's.
