It's during times like these that I feel like I should be a pot smoker.
Because then I'd have stuff to fill the day with and remain entertained by watching my hand move.
Day 80 of the Uni Senior Lecturer Strike.
80 days of no higher learning for Mel.
I cannot begin to tell you how frustrating this is.
And it's not like I blame the lecturers for their legal and worthy cause, so they have really
bad PR, big deal!
The effing Ministry of Finance is so near-sighted it makes me want to go to the Knesset Guy Fawkes style!
I won't claim to be the greatest mind of my generation, but I know a few people who are and their futures and careers are being locked by the idea that Privitisation and a near-sighted Neo-Liberal financial system for the Public Educational institution will make better consumers of us all.
Fuck that shit!
I mean when the International Airport Workers threatened to strike, it took the Effing Gov less than 24 hours to figure out a solution, temporary though it may, for the workers, because Fuck Forbid that the Duty Free close down and lower the market's revenue!
I'm really, really mad about this whole thing!
And I had a really fun day with morin
who drove with me to Rehovot, so that I could have company while I delivered a package for Daddy to the Weissman Institute.
That was fun.
And I got a hair cut.
I look like Mia Farrow ;D
