Welcome. :)

Welcome to my blog. Here I share my successes and failures along my journey to becoming an anthropologist. My most prominent interest anthropologically are the new approaches to handing food security/healthy eating in the US, particularly in urban "food deserts". I enjoy the Anthropology of Tourism as well; combining food and tourism has scholarly promise. My other interests which have converted into anthropological hobbies of sorts include converts to Islam, diaspora of Muslims, and MENA in general. I also have some interest in historical archaeology.

I welcome comments, discussion and even respectful debating. I will however keep discussions to a respectable level. I reserve the right to ban anyone from this forum.

Husbands are wonderful...sigh....

At least mine is. He has his ways but mostly, he is a doll. He is thoughtful. Case in point: he almost always does the dishes and if I cannot do the cooking, he will do his best there as well. He is thoughtful in ways that make me tear up like suprising me with having the laundry done and the living room cleaned.
My honey is patient as well. One of his best qualities btw. In addition, he will befriend anyone no matter what "class" they are...meaning he does not think he is better than anyone.

School is not hard just overwhelming with the volume of work. Still making 'A''s.

I know I am not posting meaningful items. I want to but my time is sooooo limited. I think I will have to soon.

it's wonderful that your husband will help you around the house. many men refuse. my husband will help out w/ dishes or mopping and sweeping, which i think is wonderful. if i don't cook, then we eat takeaway! :)

i'm lucky in that he'll also watch naief... which is a rarity in these parts!

I know what you mean. I'm so busy keeping up my own house that I so totally don't have the time or energy to help my boyfriend at his. It's always a wreck! which is frustrating since I spend so much time over there. Trish

Well Trish, your man is a big boy. :-) He can take things over at his own home!

OK, here is some confusion. I was reading your intro on chez chiara blog. Where I gave you some recommendation over your divorce from "A". But here it seems a different story?

Chiara said...

Usman--I am sure Anthrogeek will reply as soon as she finishes her paper for a grad class.

She was married to a Pakistani, and divorced as you read on my blog.

She then married an American (Christian), and is now divorced from him.

This is an older post when their relationship was happier! :)

Usman said...

Oh, thanks Chiara for clarification. I was jumbling all over this blog and reading different posts without keeping time line in mind...lol. Hope she is having good present.
