Good luck with the thesis. But don't let it take control of you...

I think it may already be too late for this advice! But thanks anyway.

...and kosher pizza and Chinese food and Oreos and and the Vermicious Knish and fruit almost too beautiful to eat. But yeah, mainly bagels!

OK, maybe I don't need to write that post after all.

Oooh, I'd forgotten the Vermicious Knish. And you forgot the beautiful peppers, unless you classify them as fruit.

There was the curiously aggressive pareve bakery as well, you know, where we got the cake, and it smelled so pareve!

You've been in Israel too long, dear. Parve with one syllable, not pareve with nearly three... But yes, I should indeed include that bakery.

I've been in Israel too long? I knew *THAT* already! Honestly, apart from the convenience of kosher supermarkets, I can't think of a single reason to stay. Compound that with the fact that we'll be homeless at the end of January, and home seems an incredibly attractive prospect.

Aww, badger, are you awfully homesick? You know you're always welcome here, if you need a holiday. And I only wish the offer were of more practical use. Do you need supplies of things like tea and chocolate? Cos I'd better send them to you while you still have an address. *hugs*

(On reflection, I suspect that even if you were hanging around me as much as I'd like, I doubt you're going to pick up the sort of bizarre anglo-Yiddish that I half speak.)

Adam's sending us some tea, and we still have chocolate, and we have Sainsbury's drinking choc. We're just fed up with everything being so damned Israeli. No offence to Israelis or anything. But it would be nice not to be here. hugs.

"Outlaw Torn" is cool. Though my current favourite Metallica song is definitely "Nothing Else Matters" - it was a real epiphany to hear that used in a political rather than a romantic context, and __angela__ has kindly got hold of a copy of the first Masters of Chant album for me with the Gregorian version of that on, so bounce bounce bounce on that front.

Thing about that fuzzy relationships model that does not work for me is, it's crashing a multi-dimensional set of being close to people in different ways onto a single number.

And yay book reviews. Not that I'm, like, impatient or anything.

*hugs*

I'm quite fond of that one too; maybe I should go and listen to it again.

It's amazing how Metallica stuff seems to lend itself to really unexpected instrumental arrangements. I wouldn't have thought of such a thing, but I can see the point.

Ooh, a critique! I wasn't expecting the idea to be taken seriously enough for anyone to comment on it, but yay, with a little arguing it might develop from a cute throwaway idea into a useful concept. Or it might in fact get thrown away, if that's what it deserves, but some thinking about it before getting to that stage could be fun.

I agree with you, actually; my first reaction to the plan was to ask whether you would count mortal enemies as more or less closely related than casual acquaintances. And if you restrict the model only to sets of relationships that are reasonably comparable, you have to start picking out relationships that are 'similar', and then you're not a lot further forward than with no formula at all.

Gosh, how very flattering! This whole appreciative audience thing could definitely go to my head. More book reviews are certainly happening; any in particular that you're after?

*hugs*
Thanks, that's sweet of you.
