Seven years ago, we woke up and said, "Do you know what we need? One of those new blog things." And unto us a Carpetblog was born. Crapistan rejoiced.
The early Azerbaijan years were stuffed with material, none of which we could write about without losing our job or getting kicked out of the country, so posts are lame. In hindsight, that was a mistake. We consider the Kyiv year Carpetblog's golden era, in which we established ourselves as the wikipedia of slutty dressing. The Istanbul years have had highlights (2008 was a good blogging year), but are characterized more by a long slow decline.
- An early exercise in crowdsourcing before crowdsourcing was cool, Azerisms
- The Shashlyk lifestyle
- Another insurmountable cultural obstacle presented by Turkish class.
- Does Camel Toe have two meanings?
- Deli Komsu and the Yabanci Militia
Do you have a favorite? Put it in the comments. We have no idea what posts people like.
Our new year's resolution is to maintain -- or improve -- our current practice of posting once a month, whether or not we have anything interesting to say.
