Happy Birthday America!
Here i am stuck at work on fourth of July (a Sunday mind you)! Anyway as great as Israel is - i wish for this weekend i was home - party hopping, going to Lars Anderson park to watch the fire works, and drinking my self (alsmost) silly! So let me know what you American patriots up to! Alas, today i made a date with Avi. You might be wondering who Avi is - well wonder away because i am wondering that myself. A friend of mine gave him my phone number, (what is it with middle aged women and setting people up?) he called and now i am going out for coffee with a stranger. I will report on this later. I also finally went out to a bar at night. On Friday my co-worker Lena took me to DOV (an appropriately named bar to start my social life in Haifa)with a bunch of her Russian programmer friends. It was so wonderful to be out past 10pm (i felt like a High scholar at a college party)- i missed the night time energy. Saturday was more mellow and now i am struggling through the sluggish Sunday.
