Schvitz? Don’t Mind if I Do, Thanks December 24, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — stefanella @ 1:49 pm

Self exaltation is a lovely thing.

This here link takes you to my article in today’s San Francisco Chronicle.

Mwahaahaahaahaa..I am simply Shameless in my self promotion. Hee hee. Blush Blush. As usual.

After you read the article with great rapture and you have finished reflecting…

Wish yourself and your family A Merry Merry Christmalicious (if it’s your thang).

My 5-year-old is running around our Tel Aviv flat singing: “We Wish you a Merry Christmas”…Where in tarnation did he get that tune in the Holy Land Central vacuum of virtual non-existent Christmas cheer?

On Cartoon Network dot com. Go on over. You’ll see what I mean when you watch the front page video which shows, by the way, that Joe Barbera – creator of The Flintstones, Tom & Jerry, Scooby Doo, etc. – has passed. What a legend.

Enjoy, mes petits choux…

    Kol hakavod! But “Mwahaahaahaahaa” sounds like the cartoon villian’s evil laugh. Do you have something you want to tell us?

  4. Stefanella Says:

    All in good time, my dear…

    Congrats in being published in San Francisco Chronicle!

    As to motivation of Israeli youth -Hanan Greenberg wrote in YNET that the number of new IDF recruits requesting to serve in combat units passed the 70 percent mark !(The highest demand was for the Golani Brigade)

    That’s pretty encouraging

    Thanks for the congrats…I beg to differ on whether choosing a combat unit is encouraging..I view that issue in a different light..slf

  7. Liza Says:

    Well, I think it can be seen as encouraging (if we are being optimistic here – indulge me for a moment) if it shows that maybe today’s Israeli youth have an awareness of needs that are greater than just their own, that they are prepared to put their lives on the line for their country in times of need. The fact that we need it is something else entirely.

  8. Stefanella Says:

    i dunno. unfortunately, in my opinion, military rank is tied up with perceptions of prestige; combat carries that. At 18 I don’t think it’s about selflessness. Think back to when you were 18..
