I was informed over the weekend that my readership has increased by 20%! I now no longer have 5 readers. I have 6! You can expect that my writing will be 20% better, with tighter editing, more prescient commentary, cleverer pictures, and more satisfying links. Welcome, Sarah, into the tight-knit community of Blueprint Blue readers, 6 disparate individuals spread out over 5 cities in 3 states in 3 time zones.
Despite my immigrant status (naturalized citizen for 30 years or so), I came to work today. I'd rather be on Wilshire Blvd., waving my meticulously sewn Egyptian/Swedish/American flag, offering complete strangers my unique opinions on borders (messy, unnecessary), nationalism (messy, usually unnecessary), television (how about that Big Love?), basketball (Kobe... wow), and early-80s British pop (High Land Hard Rain or Two Wheels Good - which album is better? Does it even matter? Yes, it does. I vote for Wheels.)
