I'm sick. Please forgive any mishaps and incoherence.

I turned 28 this week, hurray for me!

I'm currently using my mother's guest account on her desktop because my laptop finally bit the dust. The screen had been kind of wonky the past few months, but now her network card is dead and it's like she's in a coma.

Right, yes, her. Ursula the laptop served me very well these past four or so years.

Ugh, I'm finding it hard to concentrate, forgive me. Sore throat.

I have much to tell, really I do, but the words are stuck. Been blocked for a while now.

Maybe later this week. I hope.

Blah, fever.

But we celebrated anyway.

My birthday is actually this coming Monday, but life being what it is, it was celebrated today and much fun was had.

My siblings got me exactly what I wanted. The "Hawaii Five-0" first season box set! Which, omg, yay!

This is especially good, because I've gotten my parents to watch the show and it will bu much easier to watch the episodes through the DVD machine, rather than hooking up my computer to the big tv screen every time we want to watch an episode.

So much fun.

Speaking of my parents, they got me a tablet.

A tablet.

With a touch screen.

It's 7" of goodness, on which I'll be able to read e-books, fanfiction, watch television and take my computerised life with me wherever I go.

I honestly can't believe they got me a tablet. It's currently charging and it doesn't have a name (I name all my computers), but tomorrow once I've played with it for a while I'll know what's what with this little machine.

I have H50 and a tablet!

I can't believe I have these things now!

I am 26 today!

It's my Birthday.

And I'm actually excited about this age. Who would have thought it :)

Yesterday I had a brunch with friends, then sushi and pizza with family and this evening I'm having a shin-dig with a different circle of friends!

I'm having a really good time.

I'm impressed by my excitedness and contentment.

I didn't write about my birthday, which was awesome! Let me just say that Simon and Garfunkel tribute duos are a whole lot of fun. 400+ stodgy audience members who don't sing along to the "La la lai" part of "The Boxer" suck.
Seriously, I was singing the loudest there and was the youngest adult by far.

My mother and I sang a duet during "Homeward Bound", because no one else was singing.

But it was lovely. We had a picnic in the park, it was the entire fam - siblings, sibs-in-law, the "babies" (none of them are by now), parental units and little ole' me.

25 years.

Geez Luiz.

I got prezzies too :) none of which are of great interest. Though I shall talk about some of them at a later date as they are fandom related... I think. Pictures of the abstract TARDIS cake forthcoming.

My mother made a cake as well... it was eaten. Quickly and with relish.

It was a good weekend.

Ack!

My paper on Slash and Porn is due on Sunday and it is not done! It's been a few busy days and I'm really going to be pushing the coming couple of days. OMG!
OMG!
OMG!
Going to write now. Will probably write a whole bunch tomorrow and do the final push Wednesday to send it off for proof reading and hopefully to make sure I don't sound like a total idiot!
AHHHHHHHHHHHH

Relax.
Mel.
You can do this. You write about this stuff all the time.

*deep breaths*

*hyper ventilates*

*sigh*

Going to write.

Wow!

Waking up to all those birthday wishes on my previous posts (DW/LJ) have already made my day!

Thank you all for commenting, emailing and sending e-cards (you know who you are ;-)

And so much thanks for the generosity of paid time.

Actual information about my birthday, what I did last night, a TARDIS cake that was bluer on the inside and where the fam is taking me this evening, a little later.

Oh! And Happy Birthday [personal profile] st_aurafina, us Taurean Twins must stick together!

I'm in bed now, two hours into my Birthday.

I'm 25.

I'll tell you how my day is going to be tomorrow.

Here I go...

Happy Birthday Ianto!

You'll always be my hero




... and Wedding Fairy.

It's been a good day indeed!

Phone calls upon phone calls, even an e-card from my little Nevvie.

Well... that's all.

Saturday is the family celebration, we're having a Picnic somewhere just outside Jerusalem at a new archaeological excavation site (the name I don't recall).
That'll be fun.

Friday [Southern!Girl] is taking me out and we will probably meet up a bunch of friends after that.
That too will be fun.

Tonight [livejournal.com profile] tamara_russo is taking me out. Dunno where yet, but it'll be very fun as well, no doubt.

I know, I don't know much.
But life is more fun when it's mysterious, isn't it.

First things first: Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] queenmab21!!!!!
A quarter of a century is nothing to sniff at.

Second, it feels like Saturday again.
The one thing about these holidays is the whole messing up my days of the week thing going on. This has probably been one of the more eventful and weird holidays in a while.
Also the fact that the country went into a total warp during this time... I try to think what it was like last year and really the energies last year were way calmer.
This year people just went crazy.

I didn't write about Akko and everything that went on there. The Jewligans and the ethnic/religious sectarianism that absolutely blew up over Yom Kippur no less - in which this sort of thing is such a huge cultural no-no!
I mean the man (non-Jewish, as Akko is a mixed city) who drove the car when he shouldn't have, it's not something that should have created riots that went on for three days!
There's something wrong when religiosity, on a day in which contemplating our relationship with GD and Humanity is paramount, is used to invoke violence.
But really, I don't think I have anything intelligent to add to the issue, I mean, it shouldn't have been done.
The riots, the uber-over-reaction to someone who broke a cultural tradition, which strictly speaking isn't even their own - not driving on the Day of Atonement isn't written in law, it's more a common-practice, it's just something that's agreed publicly not to be done on this day.
It's taken far too seriously by some factions as every year you hear about kids throwing stones at Ambulances in certain neighborhoods.

It always occurs to me that people who are confidant in their ideas and ideals really don't feel the need to force them down other people's throats. It's one thing to be passionate about them and try and persuade people to see things your way... but to go so far and to, I don't know, try to force people into something they don't believe in.
And I'm aware that this goes both ways, no need to remind me of that one.
It reminds me of the motto's one hears around the country when the voices that aren't consensus speak out:
"Consider the feelings of the public"
The public is almost always the conservative and religious public.
It seems that it is often forgotten that "other" people are "the public" as well.

I'm in a park that provides WiFi.
For free.

Very far out I say.

But alas, I will not be live-blogging my Nevvie's party seeing as I'd actually like to participate in the celebratory picnic.

The weather is beautiful, breezy and cool, a wee bit cloudy but rain doesn't seem immanent.

We staked out a perimeter with ribbons and balloons and so far it seems to be holding out against the breeze.

The biggest problem is that under the trees that also make up a part of the perimeter are palm trees. And they are ripe.
Good smell since they're not rotting just yet.
They still manage to attract a fairly large amount of wasps.

Any way, I see the Birthday boy running towards me, so I'm logging off.

Happy 4th Shaul!!!!!

I woke up at an unspeakable hour this morning... looking at the time I'm updating it is still unspeakable.

I went with my uncle (to be known as Uncle D), Granny and Daddy to the air port to see him off, I'm staying in the Rainbow Nation for a few more days and staying with my other uncle (Uncle P) and his family, both are Daddies little brothers (is it still all right to call 50+ year old men "little"?)

In any event, yesterday being the last day of Daddy's holiday I got kind of weepy and annoying, I hope I didn't make things more difficult for him seeing as today is my birthday (yes, yes, many happy returns) I didn't want him to feel guilty.
Uncle P is taking out for a drive today to places called Kalks Bay (very pretty beach place), maybe Cape Point (where the two oceans meet) and it being the first clear day since I've arrived (remember I spoke of the mist and not being able to see a hundred meters ahead? It stayed that way from Friday until yesterday afternoon) I'll most likely be going up Table Mountain, which is my clearest memory of SA from when I was nine years old.

Will try and update again before I get home, but I make no promises.

[livejournal.com profile] morin for the WIN!!!

Two tests down, five to go.
Yes, I'm groaning in despair, but all will be well, I have plenty of time to study for them all in fact. The two exams I had this week went really well (at least I'm feeling confidant) and I'm having a really fun time just vegging on the campus grounds after the exams with my peeps.

But I have something to look forward to, not only the end of exams, but also the fact that I'm going to South Africa for the first time since I was nine years old.
GD that's a long time, I mean I've seen my extended family since, but certainly not as much as in the first decade of life.
My Granny is turning 90 (tfu-tfu-tfu and spins around three times while knocking on wood) and Daddy (her son) and Mummy thought it would be a good idea for me to represent the Israeli contingent of her very far flung family.
Not only would it be excellent to see Granny (who I haven't seen in two years), it will be really great to get back in touch with my cousins with whom I'm not so close, seeing as the last time I saw them was at least five years ago if not more.

It's more than a month away and I'll not be in Israel for my B-Day (I'm only a few days after Granny), but I'll be sure to mention it at the time, if I have access to Internet, which shouldn't be a problem... maybe I'll take Frida with me.

Another good thing about being away on the specific dates is that I'll be missing weeks between Independance Day and the Nakba Commemoration Day, which are sure to be, um, quite charged.
60 years may not seem like a long time compared with countries with triple digits, but you know, thing are intense...

Anyway, that's what I had to say - more tests, going over-seas, intense national atmosphere and hopefully by the time I come back and am 23 things will be back to "normal", though I doubt it.

You deserve a week carnival anyway!

It looks like I'm getting a week's worth of birthday madness.

I got a Devil of a comic book, which was IMO, way better than a Fairy Tale of a comic book.

The pendant I've been wanting since September.

And tonight I'm having a get together.

Much fun and and satisfaction :)

In addition, the genocide in Darfur must be stopped.

I bet you're asking yourselves, other than spend too much time on the Internet, what have I been up to?

Or not.

In any event you're going to find out.

Monday was my birthday and I woke up to a huge balloon bouquet my mother arranged for me.
Daddy came home early so we all went to the three of us (Mummy, Daddy and child - me) went to a movie, Next, very enjoyable, plot holes which really couldn't be filled with any power of the imagination... a tad surreal.
We then went to "Black" a very fancy and pretentious burger restaurant, they had the best veggie burger I've ever had.
Oh, and I met up with [livejournal.com profile] tamara_russo :).

Then came home, Robbie was there, and had chocolate cake (I blew out the candle first).
Tuesday Mummy and I went bra shopping (three new ones baby) and then continued to do nothing.

Wednesday - spent too much time on the Internet (see above).

Today - Mummy and I went out for lunch and am meeting with Tami and Netalie for supper at "Edison" this evening.

Good times.

In addition, the genocide in Darfur must be stopped.

וכמו כן, צריך לעצור את רצח העם בדרפור.

Thank You!

[livejournal.com profile] morin for giving me a great birthday present!!!

To any of you wondering who this is... it's melody_kitty... only now I'm eumelia - which is "melody" in Greek.

About a week ago I talked about changing my user name and as you can see. I did.

I'm very pleased with it :D

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on me...an adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.

*KABOOM!*
