some things about pakistan are less culture shocky than italy. for example, since there is a major dvd and cd pirating industry here, it's really easy to keep updated on movies, music and tv from home. when i go back to the states from italy, i am always dizzy and confused about all of the stuff i've missed.
the beauty of the cable at t's and f's house is that i can watch my beloved american idol, albeit 3 weeks behind. but i get to make fun of the awful singers and cheer on the great ones, all the same, so i'm happy. my two favorites as of this week are latoya london and george huff. i hope they haven't already been eliminated!
though, i have to say, mmc and jc, AI is just not the same without you guys!
