My awesome friend

Sometimes, in my self-righteous rants about peace and the government and what we are or aren’t doing as a nation, I forget that there are real people out there living through all that on a day-to-day basis (by that, I mean being in Iraq).

A friend of mine is one of those real people. He is incredibly real, and I think about him often. And he has a blog:

Mission Reaccomplished

It is also incredibly real, and well-written, and changed my mind about a lot of things I rant over (or at least gave me a new perspective).

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
