hello, world 2 people that read me!

i’ve been away from blogging crafting and drawing as i’ve recently added yet another ‘nowhere’ job to my already impressive collection….

this time in the props department of the local national theater of all places…

so there is this guy, a ‘stage worker’ as we call them (the guys that adjust and maneuver the stage decorations or set or whatever it’s called)

so he was walking towards me with a coffee in his hand

and looked at me with this ‘i work long hours and i’m so underpaid but oh well, whatever, you know’ facial expression
and said ‘mother mother’ and sighed heavily

i was eager to continue the conversation by answering with the same facial expression of my own, further more contributing to it with my own heavy sigh (i’m so good at heavy sighing!)

but instead i was like, what?

so he stopped and explaned that at home they say ‘mother mother’ instead of ‘mother f*cker’ near his kids for the obvious reasons.

so, he said, kids go ‘mother mother’, ‘mother mother’, ‘mother mother’ all day long basically (by saying this he added another funny facial expression which i don’t know how to describe
and a distinctive chicken-like neck and head movement)

with a heavy hebrew accent it sounds more like ‘moZeR moZeR’

aren’t u laughing yet? boy, do i know how to ruin an anecdote….. ūüôā

oh, and by ‘mother mother’ he was referring¬†to the whole usual ‘crappy day at work’ situation, just in case it wasn’t clear from my¬†narrative.

disclosure: only the ‘mother mother’/’mother f*cker’ part of the dialog happened in english.

strange, really, how selectively we choose to be affected by the US of A culture. or should i call it a ‘globalization effect’?

p.s. hope u all doing well and hope to resume crafting sometime soon

and here’s¬†another fascinating image from my new workplace for your viewing pleasure

p.p.s. ¬† on a random note, did u notice that the minions in ‘decpicable me’ speak italian? ¬†the way they scream ‘gelato!’ when they see an ice cream van? well, i did notice…not sure if i should be a little offended for the italians… ¬† it’s a beautiful language u know…

tough, tolerance challenging times are coming in our part of the globe

so! winter is coming, as they say….

no drawings to show you yet, no exciting craft projects, just slowly working my way through a “mending” pile of second hand clothing i bought over the last year…all in desperate need of sizing down.

just couldn’t resist to tell you something amusing (questionably) that happened today. i went to a nurse to have my blood tested, and the blood-taking nurse was funny. or maybe not, maybe it’s just that she was an extreme extravert chatting away and waving her arms about and talking to her kids on the phone while working, whatever. one of the many things she said was how this justin bieber kid spat on people apparently or something. and that before that or after, or maybe on numerous occasions (she wasn’t sure and couldn’t care less about the details) he’d said that he hates jews.
-after i saw him spitting on people on the internet -she said- i told my daughters to through his posters away! it’s one thing hating jews i don’t care about that – everybody hates us. but spitting on people – unexceptable!

that’s it…

just a little something there to think about.

take care

and don’t spit on people

(unless they spat on you first)
