Ok, it is official. I am sick of being sick. Today I managed to cough myself into such a frenzy that I wound up with a (CAUTION: IT IS ABOUT TO GET GORY) bloody nose. (Actually, I have had four since then and more are sure to come.) In addition, I managed to get blood on the sleeve of my sweater - which is a pain, because I happen to REALLY like the sweater (I only stole it from Sammy recently.)
I spent the morning 'cooking up a storm' in preparation for tonight - as I waited for the onions to carmelize I concoted an apple crumble in my 'hand-me'down' pie dish. It just so happens that both the soup and crumble came out superbly (the soup due to Sammy's expert seasoning abilities and the crumble due to Mommy's self-less donation of a 'pastry-cutter' to the cause.)
I bussed to and from work for the second day in a row, plenty happened but nothing worth mentioning except for one outstanding acheivement and one adventure;
Acheivement of the day - I went down to the post office by myself for the very first time with close to 40 envelopes and I managed to take care of everything, without incident or loss of life.
Adventure - allow me to keep it short. I 'made friends' with yet another one of the guys at the bagel store. Somehow, I came away with a 5bagels for 10shekel deal. So, I got breakfast for tomorrow. Why not?
Sammy came over and is sleeping over. We ate fishies in our onion soup (we pretended that the onions were shreiking eels - or at least I did.) We watched 'Little Women' - which I felt was superbly well-done. I also felt that it was quite apropos, seeing as we are sisters and well - it is interesting how each of the characters in the movie/book really represents all of us, but truthfully - in each of us a different trait is more dominant.
On the walk from the bus-stop to the apartment I found 50 shekel lying on the ground. Being that we 'learned all about hashavat aveidah' last year, I have done a full run through of my notes and have come to the conclusion that I can keep it. So, I am 50 shekel richer and I know it came straight from The Big Guy Upstairs.
Oh yeah, now I'm going to get nasty and cynical - because due to a 'heated discussion' that I just had. You know what - never mind. I need to sleep. In the morning I will regret writing what I so desperately want to and so - in the ttempt to forestall or avoid more unpleasantness than must already be suffered through I shall bid you adieu.
