So it’s 4PM on Wednesday, and I’ve been relegated to the upstairs of our apartment for four hours.
Tick tock tick tock tick tock.
The bug man came and sprayed the downstairs because we’ve had ants lately. Not like “Invasion of the Ant Army” or anything like that, but enough to where we had to call the apartment office and tell them, “Yo, we’re not slobs over here at 1483 Belvoir – there’s no reason for us to have ants. HELP!” So they did. But that means that I can’t be downstairs for four hours still. Something about two headed ant-babies.

My friend Devan sent over this survey about an hour ago. It’s meant to be completed about the person who sent it, rather than about the person who is completing it. I think I’ll do that during my four hour stay upstairs.

This weekend, Robert and I are going to North Point Church in Toledo, Ohio to present our trip to Iraq to the church there. I’ve known the Senior Pastor there since I was in high school and am really excited about the opportunity to speak at his church. You can come along if you’d like! Just give us a buzz (you’ll have to get up pretty early on Sunday, though). We’ve seen some great things happen with our giving lately – people giving who we don’t even know in places we’ve never even been! It’s great when that happens because it means that word of our work is spreading – people are talking… 😉 Oh! and speaking of talking! Michael Totten is back in Kurdistan and writing about his experiences there. Keep in mind that he’s not in our city (yet), and he’s writing from his perspective. If you read something there you have a question about, feel free to ask Robert or I.

In other Kurdish news, I learned how to count to ten this week in Kurdish. Wanna hear? Listen:
(Angie speaking outloud in Kurdish) Oh wait, that’s right. You can’t hear me. Here, I’ll write it for you Latini, because I learned that, too. It’s kind of a middle script between Kurdish and English.
(Angie searching for the Latini script on her keyboard). Hmmm… it’s not there either. Well, I guess I could just write it how it sounds in english script, but I don’t think Bob will care for that, too much. Oh well, here goes. yuk, say, do, chwar (that r is kind of a “arah”), pange, shush, hout, husht, no, duh, and zero is suffer. And I learned their alphabet, but like I said, I can’t really share that because there’s no way to do that without just sharing it phonetically in english, only they have different sounds than we do so halfway through I’d be saying, “and then there’s the sound somewhere between swallowing, gurgling, gagging, a “k”, and an “r”.

I think that will be enough for now. Probably there is something else I SHOULD be doing, so I guess I’ll find that and get to it. Have a nice three hours!
