Egyptian Sandmonkey in the Christian science Monitor
It was brought to my attention that my blog was mentioned in the Christian Science Monitor, which made me super excited because it meant that the story by Charles Levinson- from the arabist- was finally published. Eager to find any soundbites from my 1 hour interview with him, I read the article and found..well..nothing of it at all. Grrrrrrrr. Damn you Charles for raising my expectations. Damn you to hell! Ok. Allright. Ok, I am much calmer now. I've calmed down. I was just kidding by the way: there is no reason for me to get mad at him at all. I mean, after all, none of the other bloggers he interviewed made it on the article either, with the noteable exception of Alaa, who lets face it, is the most fearless amongst us. However, My blog was the first one mentiond of in the egyptian blogs list, so that's cool. What also drew me as interesting was that the 3 blogs mentioned were mine, Big Pharaoh's and Baheyya's. I am guessing that this probably didn't make Baheyya very happy, since I heard through the grapevine that she doesn't like me or Big Pharaoh all that much for some unknown reason, which sucks cause I like her blog. Oh well. Anyway... There was an interesting bonus to that article: we found out that that's where the spam comment involving Alaa on my blog came from. I am wondering if that's legal for the spammers to do. Come on CS Monitor. File a lawsuit for copyright infringment and lock those annoying bastards who spam our comments sections. I bet there is some money to make there for you, so get on it!
