Lital and Adi - in the LA TIMES??

YEP!  And, on Adi's B-day no less.

Click here to read the entire article.  It is about the Pixies kicking off a mini-tour.

Here is the key quote:

Although many credit "Doolittle" as being the vehicle that really launched the careers of the Pixies (and subsequent solo projects by Black Francis/Frank Black and Kim Deal), the album didn't spend much time on the U.S. pop charts. Not to be overlooked is the video above created by one of the first YouTube phenoms, Tasha and Dishka of Israel, whose lip-synched tribute to the Doolittle hit "Hey" has been seen more than 27 million times.

A Facebook fan page has been completed for Ramona High 20 year High School Reunion.  WOW.  Just Wow...I don't know how I feel about that LOL. It already has 80 people on there.  I hope it wont be in Riverside.  At this point I don't even know if I will be able to attend.

Happy B-day Adi!

I know it's a bit early.

But, it will be Adi's B-day! 

I had sent a gift to her - late - unfortunately, but at least I know it will get there. 

Happy B-day Dishka and I hope this year is even better than last year!

So, what we will do this year is post some prominent Adi clips!

Hindsight moments

One of my researching for the aliyahs drawbacks is that I occasionally give myself those DAMNIT moments where I wish I knew about this before the vacation!

Today I think is the worst damnit moment I have had.

I found this OUTSTANDING BLOG that helps one to budget in Israel.

Click here:

One of his tips was to find bed and breakfasts instead of hotels....and he referenced this website.

So, I am checking this website out - yes English subtitles and OMG!!!! I wish I WISH I knew about this.  Damn it!  Some of these places are so gorgeous!  DAMNIT..it would have made our outstanding vacation even more so...it would have taken it to 11 on the scale!   Oh well...some great information when I do end up doing the aliyah!

A dream

I get into work this morning and Grumpy tells me that she spoke to Denise last night.  And the dream involved me.  Michelle told me the long story short is that I should NOT go to Israel - that something bad will happen to me.

I dont know the details of the dream, but I am surprised because I have not spoken to Denise in a while. 

I will, of course, NOT stop my move to Israel.  It is the only time I felt like I was home since my mother was alive. 

I yearn to be there - and I will be there!

NEW CLASSES

YAY...just about 2 weeks ago I started 2 new classes.

This sunday should have 2 more and 2 weeks another 2 classes.

I sure do need them!  Gotta pay the credit cards off! ASAP!!  Need them paid off to either do another trip to Israel or for the aliyah!

Aliyah info

Yeah it's been a while since I have had a serious update on the aliyah stuff.  But, nothing has changed much.  I have all the bureaucratic docs done!  They just need to be scanned and uploaded to Nefesh B' Nefesh. 

I wont put the house up for sale until the spa is done.  At least operational.  Though I do plan to install a gazebo and misters for the back yard (that will help raise the value - and it wont cost alot to do).

I have been researching ALOT of Israeli blogs.  Even found some hilarious frum (religious blogs).  I had no idea that frum girls (some of them) frown on guys complimenting their dress.  Anyway, I think I would love to settle either near Haifa or near Tel Aviv - still pretty much rule Jerusalem out given the traffic mess there.

I think alot of my spare funiture I will just give to Tink to help her rebuild - since there is no practical reason for me to take it with me to Israel.   It seems sort of odd that in a year I can be there...and so looking forward to being home - and starting a new adventure.

Music Videos

Kaskade - Steppin' Out

Still one of my most favorite songs EVAH - and yes reminds me of Israel.

Lily Allen - The Fear

This song reminds me of Lital for some reason.   It is actually the anti-Lital and Adi song - in reality.

EBTG - Tracey in my room

AWESOME SONG!!!

The spa

IS ABOUT DONE!!! Can you freaking believe it.  All I need is the electrician to do the final breaker set up and install and then it is time to test the jets! WHOOOOOO!!! 

Only bummer part is it is about 110 degrees - and there is no gazebo covering - so no way in hell will I be using the spa until the weather cooperates!

A new roommate

I have a friend staying with me for a while.  Jennifer (Tink for short) she used to live in Colorado but suffered a few life changing experiences so for now she is staying with me.   It will be just a temporary stay while she rebuilds a bit, saves some money up and will get a place of her own down here.  In the meantime, she has her own room and my cats have to deal with her cats!  LOL....there is a fight EVERY NIGHT so far without fail! LOL

She came here last Thursday and we have gotten along great (the cats - well thats another story).  I hope that within 6 months or so she will be able to be in a much stronger position to be back on her own.

I sort of look at this in two ways - 1 - I feel the need to get used to a roommate since there is always that possiblity once I make the aliyah. 2 - she is a friend in need - and it's not like I am using all the rooms of my house.  It's just too bad that it has to be under the circumstances she is in.

But, in the end she will be better off and she is safe.

Harry Potter

I saw it last Thursday - the second day it came out.  It was really good.  Not as dark as I thought it would be; but very well done and VERY LONG.  I highly recommend it.  I will probably need to see it at least one more time because it was the kind of flick that you need to see at least twice to make sure you got everything.  I am pretty sure I missed somethings!

The next two movies are going to be great.  This kinda reminded me of the Empire Strikes Back - getting ready for the Final Battle against the Empire so to speak. LOL

Overall about 8.5 out of 10!
