Gone back to purple now. Also fun, but more in laws friendly.

Coffee and... Contemplation may come later. I need to try and finish the blog post I started last night.

I know nothing more than what's in the article - hadn't even heard of Meitu - but thought I'd better pass the word round so you can all make informed decisions.
 
Whatever it is, get rid of it.
It's time to uninstall Meitu, the photo app masses of users downloaded over the past week to make their selfies look wacky. This app was found today to be

Ah, yes, things used to be so much simpler in the good old days...

Today I'm wearing... Green nails! I've never tried green before. It's a fun colour!

(Rimmel Britpop. It was half price at the pharmacy so I thought why not!)

FWIW, Rimmel has held promotion tours here in Northern California at the beginning of the school year for some time now.

The local focus is Walmart.

Took another pic before taking this off - it's been fun, but we're going to see my in laws this afternoon and I don't want to give them a heart attack.

(I said it's green but it's clearly turquoise - in different light it looks either blue or green!)

Found a cool toy on my phone...

(Mirror tool, and if you blow on the screen it goes icy. Then you can clear some of the ice coating with your finger.) (Not sure if it's a standard Android thing or if it's Huawei I should thank for this, but cute anyway.) (And yes, I am going to to sleep now.)

One of the things I love about going through my g+ notifications on my phone is how when I see a spammy one I can just swipe it away.

Somehow that feels a lot more satisfying than the desktop equivalent. Not sure why, but if any UI people are listening...

Oooooooooh, this one took me only 18 minutes instead of 54. Maybe I haven't totally lost my touch after all!

I've never played one with the extra clues and no filled in numbers before. That looks cool.

Introduction
Shalom. greetings. aloha. hi. nice of you to pop round. put your feet up. coffee? there's biscuits in that tin over there, help yourself.

Who am I?

My name is Meirav. I'm human. My penguin's name is Quentin. I enjoy meeting fellow humans online. I like good intelligent discussion, as well as a good healthy dose of frivolity. I'm fascinated by human nature. I love words and languages. I'm bilingual - grew up in Israel speaking both Hebrew and English. I write. I blog. I have a tendency to speak my mind, sometimes a bit bluntly. (That means if I pay you a compliment, you can know it's for real.) I'm married. I live in England. I'm Jewish. I'm a fallible and imperfect follower of Jesus. I like cats, though currently I don't have any pets. I love chocolate. I'm an introvert, which means I need lots of solitude and quiet and time to hear myself think, and I don't do well in crowds and/or noise, which is part of why I find online social media so valuable. I love reading. I don't currently own a TV. I have a strong aversion to order and structure, and a deep need for a certain level of chaos in my environment. I am annoyingly pedantic and tend to take words very literally. I like buying pretty stationery. I like purple, and pink. and I like randomly listing stuff :)

I keep rewriting the bit about photography here, because it's been evolving so much. I started out (in 2010) just pointing at things and snapping, but this whole thing grew on me and now I'd say I am someone who uses a camera (and sometimes also software) to create visual art.

I'm not a pro in any sense of the word. I'm a self-taught amateur with a simple point & shoot camera (and a mobile phone). But I get a huge kick out of taking shots of stuff that I see and sharing some of them with the rest of the world. I'm fascinated by shapes and textures and colours, and I love chopping a random rectangle out of the world around me and presenting just that bit, without context - it's the aesthetics I'm into, not the documentary value. Sometimes I mess around with a photo and turn it into an image that is not attempting to be realistic. Digital photo editing tools allow me to take a piece of photography and use it as art material. One of my friends said that what I do is painting without paint. I like that.

If I've added you, that could be because you said something intelligent in a comment somewhere/your posts look interesting/your profile looks like you might be fun to get to know/I think I know you from somewhere/someone I respect recommended you/a whole load of other reasons. It doesn't mean I expect you to add me back, nor does it mean I necessarily want to be your bestest friend forever and ever. If you want to add me and read my posts, that's cool! Most of my posts are public, and comments are very welcome (as long as they're on topic and courteous, obviously). If you interact with me on my posts, I might get to discover what a fab person you are and add you back. (Though it's perfectly ok to just read quietly and not say anything, if that's what you're comfortable with.) (Also: if you need to respond privately, see this post.)

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to getting to know you more.

p.s. I don't do video or voice Hangouts. I much prefer typing to people than doing that face-to-face live conversation thing where you have to think up answers on the spot and you can't edit and rephrase or delete that totally stupid rash comment - it's bad enough having to do that offline, I don't come to G+ for more of the same. I'm a socially awkward penguin. That's just the way it is.

Newsflash:
Yes, I have a wall. Yes, you can write on it.
