    Question Who are you? Reveal yourself

    Not sure if there's already a thread like this...to be honest, search bars frighten me, so if there is, feel free to lock and delete mods

    Just thought we could all share some brief info about who we are and share a pic or 2 if wanted....

    Wat ya'll think?

    There is a thread for pictures, although I don't think it directly goes into telling about yourself.

    Pics of oneself!

    And my post...
    Me...
    James

    Is it just me or do you hear the sound of tweets too? What about facing a book?

    My name is "v" [though everyone calls me "V" (but, it's actually pronounced "vee"). lol] I know how to say "please" and "thank you" in 20 or 30 languages, can get by without a translator in 3 or 4, and speak sign language [and cat], daily. My first language is English...

    This post caught my eye because I'm a Persiaholic. I loveloveLOVE the Persian people, Persian food, the Persian people, Persian music, Persian children, Persian actors and comedians, Persian art, the Persian people, Persian poetry, Persian humor, the Persian people, Farsi...and, did I mention the Persian people? There's even more [including, but of course, Persian cats (and the Persian people)]. Oh, how I WISH I were fluent in Farsi, touleh-sag a man. ;-)

    Not surprisingly, I would guess, I've spent a lot of time, recently, trying to pass my love of "all things Persian" to other Americans, at this critical juncture. One of the ways in which I've hoped to achieve this end is through a "cartoon" which is linked to one of the absolute BEST "ambassadors for Persians" I've ever found.

    One of the first things I noticed when with Persians is that they reminded me very much of Italians [whom I also tend to adore] -- except, they giggle! Often! Even the men!!! It is the most breathtakingly endearing phenomenon. If Americans could sit down with Persians for just one night of hok'm and shishpesh, we would never "fear" nor "hate" them, again. It would be impossible!

    I won't repeat it in the body of this message, because the url is in my sig, but I really hope everyone who sees this will go to my blog and look at the second cartoon [the Persian cat], then click to be transported -- in more ways than one. This guy is so "typically Persian," to me, that I could eat him like kashk bottomjan. And he "explains" Persians better than anyone else I've ever seen. Run, don't walk! lol

    HEILLY mamnoun for being a pretty good "ambassador," yourself, Mahsima! Very glad to see you in this group. Hodofus, minoo!

    Consider yourselves lucky! Unfortunately, far too many of us Americans still "agree with" our government. But we've never had to deal with the kind of unmistakeable in-house oppression Iranians have, so many of us still believe our government has our best interests at heart. That's changing, thank God.

    You did, indeed. See how much Americans and Persians actually have in common?! lolol I just get so sad whenever I hear one of us saying we should "nuke 'em all." We know not what we do [nor to whom we are so willing to do it]. If the PEOPLE of the world ever got together, the jig would be up for governments, everywhere. That's why we need to become acquainted, asap.

    Thank YOU! BTW, I make and eat kasht e bottomjoun [thanks for the spelling] almost every week -- but my favorite "old-standby" is gormeh sabzi without the gormeh [because I'm a vegetarian]. Am *very* upset, right now, because, all of a sudden, there doesn't seem to be a dried lime in the entire state of Florida. I need a minimum of 20/week just to survive! lol

    I know you're an Ellen fan, but. Are you also a fan of Maz Jobrani? I hope you looked at that clip! But am guessing you've seen it, before [even though that's kind of like people thinking my brother knows (and likes) everyone who's deaf just because -- hey! he's deaf, you're deaf...how can this not be a match made in heaven! lolol].

    Thanks so much for your lovely reply, Mahsima. All the best! v
