[personal profile] claidheamhmor has posted this entry about Michael Goldfarb being 'angry' at the Dungeons and Dragons crowd. Strangely, he apologised after a few nasty comments (or it could be a hoax), still this 'apology' was not bad, however the comments afterwards were far more amusing. Especially the one that compared the US Senate to a pack of kobolds.

You know, the Large Hadron Collider was just like any experiment to me until [personal profile] nimnod posted the article about a reporter putting it as the Hardon Collider. Sigh, that is why in addition to the cool stuff of the experiment, when i see or hear any reference to it I now giggle like a 14 year old girl.

Well, my Mom went back to SA on Monday and I realized how much I miss it. It is not too bad when I am on my own, but when Mom visited I almost burst into tears from homesickness.

Since Denmark has at least 4 public holidays in May and two of them are next to each other, I booked my next trip to SA not in July (like I originally planned to come back to) but in May. Cannot wait to see the sun and actually drive a car. I, of course, would love to see all of you if you guys can make it (I know how very hectic everyone's schedule is).

Now, all I have to arrange for are the copies for my Czech visa, grumble, grumble, if one has an EU work permit, some countries still require a visa. At least, there is no fee.  Pictures will be forthcoming after Prague and Vienna since I go there a week before Johannesburg.

Back to head banging to "White stripes".

A Wish!

I can't believe it, but I just watched American Idol with almost no interruptions for 2 hours. Man alive! I think my strategy of any excuse of not cleaning the house has really topped it! I do admit, I have watched it more or less semi-regularly for the past couple of weeks, mainly due to the funny 'reject' videos of all the hopefuls, because I often marvel at people's arrogance and the blind belief that they can really sing.

Since the US is about 5 weeks ahead of Denmark they are showing two shows back to back. One of the most interesting contestants was a girl by the name of Antonella Barba. She looked like the epitome of the dumb pretty sorority sister that is so lovingly immortalized in most US movies. She did however project the image of a very sweet girl. What was so interesting is when I browsed about the show a little after the current episodes in Denmark ended and I found that she was embroiled in a bit of a sex scandal, when semi-nude pictures of her surfaced on the Web. So I clicked the appropriate links to see what was the fuss about and voila! I found pictures that at most, match your usual naughty pictures many a stereotypical 'popular' girls make, nothing overly exciting, just a pretty girl in a few 'naughty' poses. I swear, some tabloid journalists are the worse type of hypocrites out there.

I browsed the site, Wizarding Pop, that had the pictures and they also posted another news article that I felt was worth mentioning. Beth Ditto, the lead singer for the punk band Gossip, had refused to sing in-store for Topshop, the full article here. Why refuse such a money making opportunity?

" It's because they don't cater for girls her size."


She went as so far as to offer to design a range of plus sizes for the shop, an offer that was refused. Personally, as a woman who has just has made it to a very tight size 12 after  a 6+ months foray into the higher sizes, I think her decision to stick to her principles is admirable.  There has been many a shop which do not stock size 12 or 14, much less bigger sizes. Actually, [info]writerwench has a post about being overweight, where a lady by the name of Joy Nash talks about the very same thing.

So I am off to see if I can get to listen to some Gossip and see if my admiration of her recent decision extends to her musical talents.

Signing off for the day,

First seen on [livejournal.com profile] openmindedmale's journal. The questions are from [livejournal.com profile] openmindedmale. You are welcome to ask me to interview you.

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
3. You will update your lj with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

1) When did you realize you were Atheist, and were there any adverse reactions if/when you came out as such?

     I do not think of myself as an atheist, but I was brought up as one. I grew up in the former USSR, atheism was the official stance on religion (both my parents were brought up as atheists as well). I did get some reactions from some of my friends at school in South Africa, who could not consider the possibility of anyone being an atheist. These days, I consider myself more spiritual, but I have never been religious. I do consider myself Jewish, even though it is more in terms of cultural identity rather then a religous one.

2) How come you're living in Copenhagen, and do you prefer it over South Africa?

     I like living in SA, but to work overseas is considered very prestigious and when the opportunity to work on an assignment for my company in Copenhagen came up, I agreed. I enjoy living there for the moment, but do miss friends and family.

3) What languages do you know? (computer ones don't count)

     English, Russian, what I can still remember of Hebrew and still understand a great deal of Ukranian.

4) What's your favorite food?

     Lasagna for a very long time has been a favourite, but Thai cuisine is a close second.

5) Do you have any toys from childhood that you just can't bear to part with?

     I used to have a stuffed lion, which is now back in SA, it has been with me since infancy. Otherwise, no.

Thank goodness for home office days, sometimes they are invaluable:) I wanted to post the huge amount of pics from my recent vacation, but work had other plans for me. Anyhow, there will be posts!

I was a good girl and kept up with my friends list, posting comments and replying to questions, *looks proud*

However, the Wench herself, otherwise known as [personal profile] melancthe posted an interesting post, which mentioned a rather bizarre experiment involving condoms. Entiled "How many condoms at once", and it is not as pervy as it sounds. No really, it is a science experiment where all scientific procedure is observed and the innuendo is cut down to a minimum, well, excluding the potential that is there when talking about the point of the experiment, which investigates how many condoms are possible to put on at once. However (I do so love this word) everything follows scientific procedure to a tee.

And here I thought that my interest in randomness could not get any more bizarre.
