I don't know why I read Edward Scissorhands in that.

Oh, and for those who remember my recent adventures with the photo booth - I'm happy to report that I managed to use the thing today. Mission "get a photo that makes me look so miserable I want to die right now" successfully accomplished.

(seriously, they won't allow you to smile or to show any expression on your face. they want you to look miserable. ok, DVLA, you want miserable, you got miserable. hope that makes you happy...)

(got to renew my driving licence. DVLA are the guys in charge of that. they have very strict standards for the photos.)

(also: wow, did I really change so much in the last ten years? the pic on my old driving licence looks like this bright-eyed youngster...)

My passport photo makes me look like I suffered a stroke. I was trying really hard to have a neutral face that I was frowning a bit... my driver's license, while it's renewed every 5 years, I looked way better in the last frowny photo, but am sad they wouldn't let me reuse it!

blogging done, laundry done, now I'm off to the supermarket.

tomorrow we're supposed to be getting a heatwave, so today is my chance to enjoy being able to actually think straight, be creative, make sensible decisions at the supermarket... once we get above 25C it's bye bye brain.

laters, folks.

wrote this poem a while ago, felt like bringing it out of the cobwebs today.

so far, so good, but...

today is hot here (by British standards, obviously - to Florida folk this probably counts as winter weather) (26C=78.8F, 20C=68F, just to help the Celsius-challenged among you) but there's a bit of a breeze and humidity isn't high.

tomorrow is expected to be only a teensy bit hotter (going up to 27C=80.6F) but humidity is expected to go up, and then to stay up for the rest of the week. which means bye bye to my brain for a while... I'd better make the most of it today, while it's still functioning :)

(actually I've even improved one of the widgets whilst I was at it, so silver linings...)

and once again the way back machine saves my bacon.

(because this way I can see what widgets I had on my blog before that oops moment earlier.)

You can see my old website www.quityourjobday.com there. Go back a few years though, some Japanese porn company bought the domain after I dropped it.

Oops.

was idly looking at possible alternative themes for my blog on wordpress, but brain not in gear and accidentally clicked on a button that I shouldn't have and now I have to redo all my widgets...

(for a brief moment my home page was populated by cute animals, but I've got rid of them.)

oops.

+Caroline Lobban me too - not good at coping with the heat, not without air con, and here people don't do air con much because we don't get real heat very often.

Being real on social media since 2007
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 networking 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 to create visual art.

In terms of the technical side, I'm a pretty clueless beginner with a simple point & shoot camera. 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.)

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

p.s. I don't do 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.
