Happy birthday to Cap'n bodhifox!

Hello to new reader streamfern!

State of the 'Song
My back is still unhappy with me. Not like it was Saturday - but yesterday's minimal physical activity made it twingy. Yeah, I'll call the doctor.

Elayna is...
In the Jewish Quarter of the Old City.
After breakfast, return to the Old City. Walk through the Jewish Quarter, which was reconstructed after the city was unified at the conclusion of the Six-Day War in 1967. A special point of interest is the "Cardo", meaning the "heart" of this ancient Byzantine City. View the unearthed main Roman thoroughfare and ancient marketplace lined with columns, once again a vibrant shopping street. See the "Broad Wall" which was part of the fortifications of Jerusalem during the First Temple Period. Proceed through the broad stone stairway down to the Western Wall, a remnant of the Second Temple. Visit the underground Rabbinical Tunnels, the incredible excavation of the labyrinth of tunnels, arches, and passageways remained untouched for centuries

She's been Gchatting with me during my morning, her afternoon. <3 She's tired and food-cranky, but enjoying Israel. Says she wants to be home, but not in the sense of not wanting to be there - she wants to have been, with all of the memories, but she'd like to be curled up watching Doctor Who on our couch.

Blogathon is a Month Away!
So if you're making things for my auctions, please do keep that in mind! And yes, I'm still accepting donations.

So the shawl I thought I could squeak a fourth repeat of the main pattern out of? Nope. Ripped back to the lifeline. On the plus side, I'm already back to half of the edging done.

Loving This.

Daily Science
Two separate collaborations involving Indiana University scientists have reported new results suggesting unexpected differences between neutrinos and their antiparticle brethren. These results could set the stage for what one IU physicist calls a "radical modification of our understanding of particle physics."

Highly interrupted sleep last night + Adam being home and thus harder to write = me probably just crashing after work. I have Peer Supe tonight, but crampy exhausted girl may bow out.

I appreciate the link to the Avatar discussion. I had been thinking about taking L to see it, as the kids are somewhat into the books.

Also, the awesome "Pretty" link is really amazing - wow - but I'm totally not getting the Dragonette video. Trashing a high school is... lovable?

The "Pretty" video is one hell of a rant, but does it really make sense to blast at a kid for asking the wrong question? (Yes, I know it's a hypothetical kid.)

I don't know what kind of food cranky Elayna is, but I know the restuarants of Jerusalem pretty well and can direct her to some good ones.

The best best one is called The Village Green, and it's in the center of town. It's vegetarian, and they make the absolute best cheese lasagna in the world. No matter what I ate there, I always felt good inside.

The lead singer for Dragonette, Martina Sorbara, is a really great artist in her own right. Before she and her husband started this group, she was a singer/songwriter in Toronto who put out a fabulous album called The Cure For Bad Deeds. Unfortunately, she has tried to downplay that time in her life, calling it Tampon Rock, but I think she's doing her talent a disservice.

Thanks, Little Sister.
