Procrastination
Today, I was publicly condemned in the Israeli Roleplaying Society's forum, and was proclaimed to be "FARSH" (Hebrew slang picked up from Arabic, to those unfamiliar with the term). I deserved it, too. It is because I have been procrastinating about a phone call to this really nice guy for almost three months now. I do suck, he's got a point...

Procrastination's the name of the game, as my friend gaal reminds me occasionally (unless he's too lazy to do that).

But I do not procrastinate solely regarding trivialities. Oh, no! I procrastinate about the following things:
1. The Ben-Yehuda Project.
2. My homepage, which is an outdated mess.
3. Adapting a certain book into a libretto. (Hmm, adapting should be 'to', but that somehow didn't sound right here).
4. Starting my swan-song role-playing campaign in Israel.
5. Putting some effort into one of my half-written stories, which may have the blessed side-effect of putting some life into my ancient creative works page.
6. Writing an article about anti-intellectualism in Israel.
7. Writing an article about the Israeli public education system.
8. Learning to play the piano.
9. Translating a science-fiction story for the ISFSF&F site, a long-overdue promise to jspoons.
10. Probably several other things regarding which I'm procrastinating so hard I can't even remember them. :(

Current Mood: guilty
Current Music: Rachmaninov - Piano concerto No. 1 (Ashkenazy)

Why swan-song? Are you going anywhere else? Is Israel going anywhere else? Is roleplaying going anywhere else?

Khatul, worried

It's the swans, of course, and they are going the way of the dodo :)

Yes.

I'm going to attend St. John's College, in Annapolis, Maryland, in the United States of America. Israel is going to hell, it seems to me. Roleplaying is here to stay, I think.

Eh? Why hasn't anyone told me?

One good reason Israel can't go to hell is that hell - or, at least, Gey-ben-Hinnom aka Gehenna - is already located IN Israel, and a thing cannot contain itself.

Annapolis is somewhere far away - even further removed from the centre of the universe than Ofakim and Yerocham, which must make it a miserable place indeed. I trust you to enrich it with true metropolitan spirit.

When, what and why are you going to study there?

PS: and roleplaying is, indeed, here to stay. Hurray, session tomorrow! Dark Sun, here I come again...
