My Problem with Pakistan: From Sesame Street to Twitter

  Dear Pakistan, Can you stop being so f-ing dramatic? Ack – what? That’s an inappropriate way to start a conversation? I apologize. I’m sorry. Allow me to (re)introduce myself – my name is Khan.

This just in: Brian Williams is a huge fan of obituaries, owns two American cars, and thinks Jon Stewart is a necessary branch of government. Good evening, I’m Samia Khan.

I’m so 3008, You so 2000 and Late… Hanging with the Black Eyed Peas

Will.i.am. Fergie. Two guys whose name you probably don’t know. Collectively, known as the Black Eyed Peas. For laziness-sake, I’ll refer to them in this post as “BEP.” As I mentioned on Facebook and Twitter, I covered KIIS-FM’s Wango Tango concert on Saturday the 9th on behalf of TV Guide Network… However, I will not …
