she made me do it
Alright alright.... I'm blogging again. Occasional Bitch has lit a fire under me to get me back into the swing of things, so here we go...

I'm not even going to bother getting into a discussion about this friggin' 5 month trip to Israel. What I will say is that something surprising and perplexing has happened.... I suddenly don't feel like going. And I don't mean like, I was all grumpy so screw it I'm not going to go; I mean I just woke up one day and the desire has left me. I am going to continue to apply for financial aid and proceed to move forward with the idea that this is just some bizarre mood swing and it will pass. I have no idea if actually will or not since I don't understand why I suddenly feel this way. *shrug*

Next, I am going to ask AGAIN since no one replied to me when I asked before and I really need some advice. I need a good file sharing program that isn't riddled with spyware/adware (ie: Kazaa). What do you guys use?

Wow, it's been so long since I last wrote that Blogger has actually made some changes. Finally I can change the font size without great effort and what the hell is this "recover post" button? Hey I got an idea Blogger! How about you just stop swallowing up our posts so we don't need an f'n button to recover them in the first place!

In the news.....
A white supremacist here in Toronto was shot and killed recently. Wow, I'd feel bad if only he wasn't such a Nazi bastard. Good riddance.

A jerk responsible for drowning us in spam has gotten NINE years in jail for his efforts. This pleases me to no end, as I'm sure it does anyone else who hears it.

In food...
Can someone PLEASE explain to me what marketing whiz put the words "sport" and "chocolate" together? Because the fine folks at Ritter have a chocolate bar out called Ritter Sport which is currently getting a lot of advertisement time on my local channels and I watch the commercials in complete bewilderment everytime. What makes it sporty?? The fact that you can snap it in half? HUNH?? Perhaps I am missing something.... or maybe I am just not sporty enough to get it, I dunno.

And yes I am excited about the new Star Wars cereal that's coming out, mostly because you can get a saber spoon. Gah! A SPOON that doubles as a LIGHT SABER!! Does it get any better than that?? (do I need to remind you of a recent post in which I mentioned I am a marketing whore?)

Remember when I was saying that I am looking for something really scary? A movie that actually leaves me terrified to be alone and maybe even scars me emotionally for life? Well, I haven't found a movie that scary yet, but I was playing a game on my computer the other day (Thief 3) and there was a level that scared me so bad that when a zombie jumped out at me I actually screamed outloud. Awesome!!! Eventually I had to stop playing and watch some tv in order to calm down before I went to bed. Damn haunted insane asylums!!

Speaking of scary, Amityville Horror comes out today! Could this be it? Could this be the scary movie I've been looking for?? It LOOKS scary, no? I'll let you know... I'll go see it this weekend.

Like me as a South Park figure? I just had to add a few nerdy touches coz I *am* a she-geek afterall (we won't mention the fact that I have a countdown clock on my Firefox browser that is counting down the days to the opening of the new Star Wars movie next month). Anyway, if you want to make yourself up as a South Park character go here.

Anyway, I'm back to blogging and might even spend the time finishing up that big long post I started to write on Monday (perhaps I should break into parts so I don't bore you guys with one long post?). I thank you all for your words of encouragement, it's very much appreciated. I was really starting to wonder if I'd come back... because like my mood about going to Israel, I also suddenly just didn't feel like blogging anymore. What's gotten into me??

So I guess I'll still be seeing you guys around.... ya didn't quite get rid of me! Thanks for the kick in the ass, Occasional Bitch. (and as a postscript, I'd like to welcome back si after HER extended break from blogging. I missed you! now put your comment system back up!)

Shabbat Shalom!
