I saw this on someone else’s blog, and couldn’t help being curious. Now that I know sort of writing style this anonymous algorithm has determined I use, I’m more curious than ever to know how it arrived at this determination.

I write like
H. P. Lovecraft

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

If I had to guess, it would be because the blog content I used for it to create this analysis was from my previous birthday/biking related entry, which has a few Arabic words that I wrote their English transliterations out. I mean, “shish tawooq” isn’t quite as much of a mouth-twister as “Cthulhu” but perhaps that’s where they got the idea.

I do enjoy his writing style and books though, so I’m going to choose to take that as a compliment.

My birthday two weekends ago turned out well; a few Cycling-Jordan  friends came out to see “Inception” with me, and then some EGT and choir friends came to the bar for dinner and some drinks afterward. Came back home by 11, read a little bit of the fifth book in the “Dune” series, and went to bed. A relatively quiet birthday but it was a good, relaxing day.

My third Ramadan is going to be starting in only a few days now. In the two years I’ve been here, it’s moved up the calendar almost a month, as lunar holidays tend to do. Unlike Western or Jewish lunar holidays though, the Islamic calendar is never “reset” back so that you can rely on holidays falling in a certain Gregorian month – it’s always moving. In another half-decade, Ramadan will be falling in the spring months instead of in the blazing summer. If I were a fasting Muslim that was abstaining from even drinking water during the holy month, I’d definitely be looking forward to that part of the lunar cycle!
