I basically have no knowledge of Portugese whatsoever. What function does the tilde serve over o and a?

Well, not exactly.

Here's the deal. In a previous post, I mentioned that Johnny Rotten's dad was from the same town in Ireland that my dad was from. (That town is called Tuam, in Co. Galway).

Anyway, while having lunch with my pops yesterday, I asked him if he knew the Lydon family. Indeed he did - they basically lived around the corner from the O'Briens (my family). He remembered the name of the road and everything. Apparently my aunt Eleanor used to pal around with one of the Lydon girls (which would have been one of little Johny's aunts).

The plot thickens...

Whadda day

I've been in a much better mood since I left work. I bought a new pair of jeans and a sweater and some socks after work.

Socks are expensive.

Today I also purchased a book entitled The Iranians: Persia, Islam and the Soul of a Nation. After talking to Brian and Damon (Brian mostly) about how the ancient Iranians were the ones who taught the Huns, Turks, and Mongols how to ride horses (a skill that later aided these groups in their successive movements across Central Asia into Europe in the Middle Ages), I've been on a bit of an Iranian history kick. So there.

I shall retire to bed soon.

(PS - I must also be on a Seattle rawk kick. See below.)
