i love shooks and stinky cheese





We went to the Shook!!! It was our paradise. Our overcrowded, smelly, cheap, hectic, random paradise. It was shook ha'carmel and it was in Tel Aviv and we went with the Ulpan and got to walk around for a couple of hours. Mel and I purchased some scarves, jewelry, sunglasses and BOOTS for 20 bucks that are to-die-for!!! We left the shook and got back to the kibbutz and immediatly started trying on outfits with our new boots to wear that weekend and I put my boots on and the right one feels really tight. I asked Mel if she thought they would stretch out a bit or if it was my sock..and she was like yeah it should be fine. So I walk around our room a little more and realize that its too tight, tighter than the left boot so I look at the bottom and the stupid person at the show store sold me two differnt size boots! That would freakin happen to me!!! So Alex and I are going to TA this Thursday to return them and switch sizes, hopefully I will have no problems because in Israel customer service isnt like taking something back to Target, its always complicated. Dysfuntional is a word I like to sometimes use to describe stores and store owners here in Israel.

We went out Thursday night to Sogo where some reality show "celebs" were hosting a party; it was cool..kinda. It was basically just Mirelle and I on another one of our dates because Shiran was working and Shanie or Naama didnt go with us, but whatever we had fun. We make fun. On Friday we chilled at home, it was nice. Got in the jacuzzi with the little girls and splashed around for a bit, it was raining out so it was cold but so nice in the hot water! This just made me realize that I am not bathing suit ready, dammit! After the jacuzzi we rented "Over Her Dead Body" on tv and watched it with dad and Simi, kinda cheesy, kinda cute. Later that evening Saba, Savta, Yael, Yossi, Danielle and Ohad joined us for dinner, it was Saba's bday celebration, I think he's 77. Anyways, we had an assortment of cheeses that dad brought back from Paris, stinky cheeses and spreadable cheeses- yellow, orange and white cheeses...I was in love. We ate it with french brea

omg - that candy looks to die for.
can't believe you got two different sized boots. but that happens here in america too. don't be too shocked.

'over her dead body' looked really bad. good to know it wasn't all that dumb. maybe i will rent it one of these days.
