I’ve been a Kiva.org lender for a while, and I always try to pick up new countries when they’re available… KivaLens has been giving me trouble, though, so I started writing something myself against the kiva api.
You can find (and contribute code to) the project over on github at: https://github.com/bswopes/kiva-country-collector
$ ./kiva-loans.py -i bswopes

No new countries found. Looking for less used countries.

Strange moment during physical therapy today. I was rubbing my shoulder and the girl asked me what was up. Told her it hurt… blah blah… and I decided to just get on with my exercises so I made what I thought was a dismissive comment; I said “eh, everything hurts” *shrug*.
She didn’t take it as lightly as I meant though.
“That’s so sad.”
Wait, it is?
I’m always in pain… Isn’t everyone?
[EDIT: James informs me that in fact, no, its not supposed to hurt.]
I mentioned finding this article to a few of you, but don’t think I ever posted it… here’s a repost…
