“So, my unsolicited advice to women in the workplace is this. When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.” -Tina Fey, Bossypants

quote of the moment.

Did you ever stop to think about all the people we kill?  They’re always people who tell us to live together in harmony and try to love one another; Jesus, Gandhi, Lincoln, John Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, John Lennon.  They all said; ‘Try to live together peacefully.’  BAM!  Right in the fucking head!  Apparently we’re not ready for that!

Do you ever do this?  Dig up old projects in order to either finish one of them so you could have something completed, or get inspiration for a new one — so you could have something completed.  But in the end you find yourself having spent three hours of digging through pages of unfinished stories or articles, tweaking gigabytes of badly edited photographs or scans of drawings, moving around metres of yarn and fabric.  And when you’ve understood the futility of it all and declare yourself done with that, you realise you’ve no energy left to truly complete something — be it old or new.

I do this all the time.  I’ve been doing this for the past three days or so.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results. — Albert Einstein

on sin, a quote.

A Christian knows: God, Whose name is Love, will not cinder one for excessive drink, a smoked cigarette, or even for a more serious sin.  Which is why one will not consciously sin.  To sin is distasteful for one.  Distasteful to be dishonest with That, Whom one loves, Who loves you.  Who, for you, met His demise on the Cross. — source; translation mine

"After spending several years trying to answer the supposedly incredibly complicated question of how we should eat in order to be maximally healthy, I discovered the answer was shockingly simple: eat real food, not too much of it, and more plants than meat."
from here

It really is that easy.

Roses are reddish,
Violets are blueish.
If it weren’t for Christmas,
We’d all be Jewish.

I wanted to go to a Hanuka celebration held at one of the public halls here.  I woke up when it had already started, though, so I stayed home.  A bit sad.
