Today is our seventh wedding anniversary. I joked, "You're becoming an insomniac like me! See, it's true what they say about people turning into each other when they've been married for so long. It only took you seven years." He snorted and said, "But I don't want to be like you in this area!" When asked what area he would like to be more like me in, he replied, "You know, how you're organized and remember birthdays and stuff." Heh.
We're leaving tomorrow for block leave: a week in Las Vegas. In addition to festivities and fun, we will be working on learning Pashto together. Just another thing to shove in our suitcase...
Don't worry, we're such nerds that we chose our hotel based on who had free wifi.
and a lot of time learning Iran, too! I admire a man who gets into his field and takes it seriously.
I can't wait to hear about your Pashto studies together. Now that's my kind of romance!

Enjoy your block leave. We just got back from ours - a road trip to visit friends & family in SoCal with a quick detour to the Grand Canyon.

FWIW, I really liked "The Arab Mind" for Iraq, not sure if Pataki has written anything on The Muj Mind, but lessons learned in one may apply to another. Also, dealing with tribes--watch The Godfather, over and over and over. There are SO many lessons learned in that movie that really did apply. Leave the gun, take the cannoli, indeed.
