Clumps of Doosty OR Straddling the Prime Meridian...

Shabbos was very very nice. My Chayal was Home and I got to spend lots and lots of quality time with him. Shabbos also included an incredibly fun nosh party with Michalie, An entertaining Friday night meal which Tamir joined us for, a game of Rummikub (which I won) against Little Brother, a walk to Nofei Aviv where we saw Woof and the Squeaky One, Shimon Yaffa's Bar Mitzvah and more.

Now for a wrap-up of today...
Woke up at 7:30 and got out of bed at 8. Left the house at 9:50 to catch a 10:00 bus (which never came) the 10:30 bus came at 10:50 and in the interim I walked down to the 417 bus stop but they were not running on any sort of schedule either. At 11:45 as we approached the entrance to Jerusalem we detoured onto the new tunnel road, as per the police's instructions. The driver informed us that due to a rally of the handicapped people the entire city entrance was on lockdown. So the bus drove us out to Har Hotzvim and left us on the side of the highway. Of course, almost no inner-city Jerusalem busses were running either and with traffic everywhere it took almost 45 minutes to get near tachana merkazit (which incidentally was blocked off too.) So, I wound up walking to the office. I only got there an hour and 20 minutes late. Thankfully it was a niiiice quiet day at work because all the bosses were away. Unfortunately, they will be back tomorrow - but one day is better than none I suppose.
