two random questions.
1) what are some stores that you like shopping at for clothes? I really like your style, and being super lame like I am, I have no idea where to find such cute clothes.
2) what are your top 5 favorite/most influential books?
1) FFXI is the obvious generic place to get cute clothes. otherwise, its real easy to find decent clothes at thrift stores (try ecothrift or thrift town). modcloth.com, pinkice.com & yesstyle.com are also good online clothes stores.
2) a hundred years of solitude by gabriel garcia marquez, of mice and men by john steinback, a farewell to arms by ernest hemmingway, wasteland by francesca lia block & brave new world by aldous huxley
CNN's breifing on protests in some of the nations in the region:
IRAQ - Unlike other nations, protests here have not targeted the government.Demonstrators are enraged by corruption, the quality of basic services and high unemployment.

Rallies started in Algiers, but spread to other cities as more people joined. Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika announced that he would lift the state of emergency law in what analysts said was an attempt to head off a similar revolt.
DJIBOUTI - Protesters in Djibouti are angry about the economy. The country is home to Camp Lemonnier, the only U.S. military base on the African continent.

JORDAN - Jordan’s economy is struggling as commodity prices rise and youth unemployment is high, as it is in Egypt. Its king has called for swift reform.
KUWAIT - Protests are relatively new, beginning over the weekend. Demonstrators, who want greater rights for longtime residents who are not citizens, attacked security forces late last week.

Witnesses said that several people were arrested, including 20 who remain missing.
TUNISIA - An uprising in Tunisia prompted autocratic President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali to leave the country on January 14, after weeks of demonstrations. Those demonstrations sparked protests around North Africa and the Middle East.
PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES – Hundreds of Palestinians rallied for unity in Ramallah, calling on Hamas, Fatah and other Palestinian political factions to heal their rifts amid arguments over elections scheduled for September in the Palestinian territories. “Division generates corruption,” was one of several slogans written on banners held up by the demonstrators Thursday, who flooded the streets after calls went out on social networking sites, as well as schools and university campuses, for them to attend.
SYRIA – As protests heated up around the region, the Syrian government pulled back from a plan to withdraw some subsidies that keep the cost of living down in the country. President Bashar al-Assad also gave a rare interview to Western media, telling The Wall Street Journal last month that he planned reforms that would allow local elections and included a new media law and more power for private organizations.
