I close my eyes to get away, still all I see is you

Do you ever look at your desk and all the paper on it and not even know where to begin?!

Nuts to this, I’m taking a bathroom break.

***

And we’re back!

I hate it when I see a co-worker in the bathroom. This all started when I lived in Banff. I don’t like it when people hear me pee. At least, people I don’t really know.

“Hey.”

“Hey! How’s it going.”

“Pretty good, I’m about to take a dump!”

“Awesome! I just took a big pee! I’ll see ya later.”

“Cool.”

Oh if only it went down like this…

Instead I say hello and procees to wait for the woman to leave before I drop a bomb. Sorry to ruin it for you dudes, but girls do poop!

WINSTON SUMO BARK BARK:

You are hereby charged with takin’ a big ‘ol pooh on the living room rug! Like…ALL OVER the rug. Note to everyone: do not put your face near my rug until I buy a new one!

You also proceeded to then look at Steve and I and take a huge pee on your new pillow bed! However, I was sure you’d do this, so I bought an inexpensive one I could wash. HAHA! You thought you had me there, little dude, DIDN’T YOU?!

You also won’t stop barking at other dogs when I take you for walkies! Damnit! It’s a good thing you’re so handsome…

Help Save Nazanin

Please take a moment to read this story. I saw it on the news tonight.

On January 3, 2006, 18-year-old Nazanin was sentenced to death for murder by court in Iran after she reportedly admitted fatally stabbing one of three men who attempted to rape her and her 16-year-old niece in a park in Karaj (a suburb of Tehran) in March 2005. She was seventeen at the time. Her sentence is subject to review by the Court of Appeal, and if upheld, to confirmation by the Supreme Court.

According to reports in the Iranian newspaper E’temaad, Nazanin told the court that three men had approached her and her niece, forced them to the ground and attempted to rape them. Seeking to defend her niece and herself, Nazanin stabbed one man in the hand with a knife that she possessed. As the men continued their attack, she stabbed another of the men in the chest, which eventually caused his death. She reportedly told the court “I wanted to defend myself and my niece. I did not want to kill that boy. At the heat of the moment I did not know what to do because no one came to our help”. She was nevertheless sentenced to the maximum punishment possible under the law, death by hanging.

Urgent action is needed to help save a young life whose only crime was an attempt to defend herself. Nazanin and many like her are caught between two undesirable options. On one hand, Iranian Penal Code severely limits the possibility of using ‘self-defense’ as a legitimate defence to aggression. On the other hand, if Nazanin had allowed the rape to take place, she could still be imprisoned, flogged or stoned for having sex outside of marriage unless four male witnesses to the actual rape would testify on her behalf.

Moreover, Iran is a signatory to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and is therefore under obligation NOT to impose the death penalty on those under the age of 18. Nevertheless, Amnesty International has recorded 18 executions of child offenders in Iran since 1990. In 2005 alone, at least eight executions of child offenders were recorded. Nazanin was 17 years old at the time of commission of the offense and therefore Iran is in breach.
