There we go... again...
I'm going to the hospital tomorrow. Hopefully this time they really will release me after 3-4 days and not week and half.
Wish me good luck ;-)

I am just getting around to the cards part, so, if you'd like one, comment here with your address, comments are screened. If I had your address, assume I've lost it, because I just might have.
If you're interested in sending me a card (I love X-mas and New Year cards, and there almost no one is celebrating it), here is my address:

I can be found there: )

And now, for the wishlist:

Step One
- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use - or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free - do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf - to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not - it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

If wishes were horses… )

Also, I've been saving your wishlists, but you can also post me the link in comments, to make sure I didn't miss any. Also, if you have someone on your flist you think deserves gifts (apart from, well, all of them, cuz flists are awesome), link their wishlist to me, maybe I can do something?

You know, guys, maybe it sounds strange, but I don't remember nothing from out first six or so years in Israel. I perfectly remember first fifteen and a half years in Ukraine and I don't remember anything from my high-school and army service in Israel. It just blank, one big white spot.

The only thing that I ever asked from Him is to live in the country where I feel myself comfortable. Is it too much?

Starting from tomorrow I’m in the hospital for the next 3 days or so. After it I’ll be home for 10 days (more or less). So if anybody needs me – e-mail or SMS me. See you! ;-)

PLEASE, somebody, explain to me, how any sensible human being can get to any age above 10 years old without reading any of the "Sherlock Holmes" books? (Not to mention remembering them by the heart?)

Don't remember, when I posted photos of my cats for the last time. Looks like very long time ago. So, there they are:

Matvey-Mordekhay (Moty) )

Mru McTabby (Masya) )

Finally, two month after we went to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie, I decided to write about it.

It was a great New Year gift (in our Holy Land the screening started on December 31st).

To tell the truth, I was a little afraid of this movie: I’m an avid fan of the books and of the old Soviet series, and, knowing what Guy Ritchie and RDJ can came up with…I was scared.

An I was right to be scared: I REALLY don’t need another fandom in my life ;-) But it is too late. I loved the movie. Blast, I LOVE the movie. And one of the things that I really loved about the movie: both Holmes and Watson were young in it; maybe not in years, but in their hearts. Somehow all movies and series picture them as middle-aged (if not older) men. But, for G-d’s sake, in A Study in Scarlet they both are not even thirty.

The most curious thing: my mind had really quickly “made its mind” about how both the new movie and the old Soviet series can co-exist together – it’s just parallel universes. ;-)

And here are some pictures to compare: Sherlock Holmes (2009) vs. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson (1979-1986) )

Main theme from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson

Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it"

**********************************************************************

1) I hate to be outside of my home. If I had an opportunity I would never go outside. Just sit there surrounded by my computer, collection, books, DVDs, cats, etc... (Maybe I’ll go outside one a month or so to see a movie and to pick up from post office a parcel with more books and films.)
2) I love cats!.. No, it’s more like I LOVE CATS!!!
3) I’m crazy in love with two most beautiful places in the word. Unfortunately now I’m not in either of them. http://black-dragon.livejournal.com/87028.html And it’s the only places that I’m ready (and love) to be outside.
4) I love to gift people even with something small, just to see their faces.
5) Since fifth grade or so proud owner of the nickname ‘The Great Inquisitor’. Received, in the most part, for my inability to feel and/or express feelings.
6) I’m graphomaniac, who is unable to write normal sentence (no to speak of story), but love to do it. Therefore causing to my lovely betas [livejournal.com profile] elefwin and [livejournal.com profile] destinyawakened a lot of grief…
7) I love to learn languages, but can’t stop myself from doing the stupidest mistakes in any of the ones that I already know.
