9:11 am - FYI
For those of you whom I usually talk to via messenger service or MU*S, the reason I have not been on for... well, weeks is because some beautiful little girl spilled water all over the keyboard. I'll get a new one when I have time. Really.

Here is a link to the poignant Jon Stewart monologue on the first "Daily Show" after 9/11. My favorite excerpt, and I've taped it up on the wall next to my office for all to see:

The reason I don't despair is because this attack happened. It's not a dream. But the aftermath of it, the recovery is a dream realized. And that is Martin Luther King's dream. Whatever barriers we've put up are gone even if it's momentary. We're judging people by not the color of their skin but the content of their character. You know, all this talk about "These guys are criminal masterminds. They've gotten together and their extraordinary guile... and their wit and their skill." It's a lie. Any fool can blow something up. Any fool can destroy. But to see these guys, these firefighters, these policemen and people from all over the country, literally, with buckets rebuilding. That's extraordinary. That's why we've already won. It's light. It's democracy. We've already won. They can't shut that down. They live in chaos and chaos... it can't sustain itself. It never could. It's too easy and it's too unsatisfying.

The view from my apartment was the World Trade Center and now it's gone. They attacked it. This symbol of American ingenuity and strength and labor and imagination and commerce and it is gone. But you know what the view is now? The Statue of Liberty. The view from the south of Manhattan is now the Statue of Liberty. You can't beat that.

7:41 am - Code Monkeys!
Ever since the show Code Monkeys on G4 came out, Josh and I have been glued to it. It's so funny I've nearly cried at times. Even better, it was inspired by a song (that became the theme song in part). We finally got the actual song and it's just... perfect. The lyrics are wonderful and the song is catchy as all hell. This goes out to all my coder friends out there!

11:14 am - Clearing the Confusion
Confusion is never a pleasant state to be in, but what happens then the clearing of it leaves you with the answer you already knew to be true? One you have known for a very long time to be true, but also know that the time is wrong to act upon it or even share it with anyone else? Is it best to sit and wait for the best time to present itself? I refuse to ignore truth any longer, for that has never helped me. But now what?

Your Score: Cousin Itt!

Our test has determined that you possess
28% Hellbentness, 34% Sanguinity, and 46% Creeps!
Well done!

Our little hirsute inamorata of Proto-Gothicness... Cousin Itt is arguably the most enigmatic of the many Addams Family members. The three-foot-tall mass of hair normally sported sunglasses, gloves and a small derby on top of Itt's... on Itt's top.

Cousin Itt is the "wild child" of the Addams clan. He is rarely at home, and spends much of his time on extended road trips and excursions across the country. He is a lover, not a fighter, and has an undeniable charm that makes him a hit with the ladies (the ones that aren't terrified beyond all reason by his appearance, that is). Cousin Itt is something of a social rebel, even for an Addams, and enjoys jazz music, sports cars, and life in the fast lane.

Cousin Itt has his own miniature room within the Addams mansion, where he stays when he is not off galivanting with the women (gossip abounds as to his abilities with the ladies!!). He has the distinguishment of being the only Addams to actually hold a job in the past 200 years. He has been employed as an opera singer, an actor, a zoo director, a zoo attraction, a magician and more.

This clearly indicates I should go by my Hebrew name from now on. Obviously.

I have clearly spent too much time around my husband:

Your Score: Older Futhark

You scored

Language of the Norse, Older Futhark! Thirty symbols, all told. And no hardier, more warrior-like tongue has ever graced the longships of the Viki or left the Celts and Saxons in such quivering fear. There's only one drawback, that being you died 800 years ago.

I am salivating over this house. Perfect size, perfect number of bedrooms, already has a garden set up, love the exterior, gorgeous view (like every house in Tzfat since it's a mountain city) and the price is unbelievable. I waaaaaaant it! I am already imagining precisely how I would redecorate and it makes me tingle all over.

1:02 am - I feel honored!

Your Score: Katherine Hepburn

You scored 19% grit, 28% wit, 38% flair, and 26% class!

You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.

I'm concerned about a friend who seemed to be in great emotional distress recently. They will have to be moved up near the top of my nightly prayers.

Well, the number of heartbreaks is wrong, but otherwise it's pretty on target.

Your Birthdate: February 11

You may watch someone from afar before you finally decide to make your move.
It takes a long time for you to develop an attraction to someone.
Generally, you prefer to pick who you love. Anyone who tries to rush you is in for some heartache.

Number of True Loves You'll Have: 1

Number of Times You'll Have Your Heart Broken: 1

You are most compatible with people born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, and 29th of the month.

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

You are more logical than emotional, more concerned about others than concerned about self, more religious than atheist, more dependent than loner, more lazy than workaholic, more traditional than rebel, more artistic mind than engineering mind, more idealist than cynical, more leader than follower, and more extroverted than introverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are religious (90%), romantic (86%), intellectual (80%), adventurous (75%).

Punk Rock67%
Young Professional65%
Life Experience

Your political views would best be described as Libertarian, whom you agree with around 47% of the time.
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Middle Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 31% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated PG-13.
By the way, your hottness rank is 52%, hotter than 75% of other test takers.

2:30 am - Tears of Joy
I am sitting here, looking up pictures for my vision board, and find that the only ones I really care to look at are those of Israel. More specifically, Tzfat and the Jewish Quarter in the Old City in Jerusalem. Tears are streaming down my face and my smile could not get any wider as I am overwhelmed by gratitude. I am so thankful to G-d that He allowed me to visit the one place that has ever truly felt like home, to find myself. I am equally grateful that I will live there someday soon, with my family. My daughter will grow up in the holiest place on this planet. She will have memories of being a young child and walking with her Ima to the market, whichever of those two places we end up in. If it is the Old City, she will have the privilege and joy of going to the Kotel (Western Wall) every Shabbat, at the very least, and meeting different people from all around the world. If we end up in Tzfat, she will go to the Kotel less frequently, but will live in the only city I have ever been in that is equal parts art and spirituality. She will grow up playing along the mountainside and dashing up and down stairs within narrow passageways. There will be only an all-consuming happiness.

This is why I am crying... and it feels so good to shed tears of joy. G-d bless all of you and G-d bless Israel. Baruch Hashem.
