Life Snipits

  • Bought two chocolate bars to eat in honor of getting rid of most of my stressors, but was so hungry polished both of them off with out the time for enjoyment. Did notice however that while both are supposed to be off brand Snickers one was much closer to a Three Musketeer bar.
  • Zambia is awesome. People don't harass you, there are paved roads, and is that a sushi place across from the hostel?!
  • OMG, capsizing on a level 4 rapid is terrorizing.
  • It it weird to miss your own shintbet when away?
  • I love buying strawberries in Adama and then bringing them home. Everyone just stares at them and goes 'what is this' because they're such a rare sight.
  • You know your sweet input is really low when you have a bunch of berries and your teeth ache like a post trick-or-treating candy binge.
  • Wabam! A little fiddling with the TV cable and we suddenly have ETV3. Which apparently plays American movies. Back to back. With no commercial breaks. And they mostly (aside from Sister Act that one time and apparently wed nights it's all crime films) are Disney/Pixar films. Life here just got better. Who needs to rewatch Doctor Who on my laptop when Ratatouille is on?
  • Reading an article from Popular Culture: The International Journal of Media and Culture that mentions Inspector Spacetime and SuperWhoLock. I feel so smart for being a geek right now.
  • I think the one novel I've read more than any other is my own. I keep rereading and rereading it for edits and flaws and refreshing my mind before continuing to work on it.
  • My year of saving plastic bags and candy wrappers has now paid off. I have a crocheted plastic bag doormat and a table with a glued mosaic of candy wrappers. I feel very accomplished.
  • Cold, cold, go away!
  • It's sad watching Ghostbusters with people who don't know what a ghost is.
  • I ate a fish, and didn't mind the head was still attached. Or the spine still in it.
  • I now have an electric kettle! Got along fine for a year without one, but I just wanted it. Something about having an American gadget on my floor just makes me happy. Primus, I'm turning materialistic.
  • Still trying to figure out a good way to clean my yoga mat. Today, I'll hang it between two laundry lines while it rains.
  • Cut my hair today and then handed over the scissors to Dani. Who doesn't understand that curls, well, curl away from the head, and so they must be long pieces that need to be snipped. Thus, I'm pretty sure all of my curls are now living amongst the grass. This will probably be my last haircut here, I rather miss my curls.
