A colleague of a colleague of a colleague in Istanbul is making a documentary about *sigh* English teachers in Istanbul and has posted his first installment on YouTube.  Inevitably it features an alcoholic man, because so many teachers in Istanbul tend to lean that way. It's an interesting watch, though I'm having a really hard time seeing my 6 years through those eyes. I get the feeling that he made some very different choices than I did. All the background shots, the location shots, are as familiar as my own hand though. I guess I haven't lost the scenic aspects of my life there yet.  [ETA the shot of the steep hilly backstreet at the 9 minute mark is actually the street that was right off the flat I shared with Dixie in Tunel in 2006/7, with that view being exactly what I saw through my windowbox bedroom]


It's monday and I'm having a really, really hard time getting my act together to go to work. I feel utterly depleted though I have no reason to be so.

Lo(l)st!

The dude who made a Lolcat version of Sex and the City and Twilights 1 and 2 has now started a project of Lolling all the seasons of Lost. This is a serious mindfuck. Yay! Click on either picture for link.
