Classes at the Technion start November 9th, which means I'm going up to Haifa basically the day after I come back from Japan. I've had the apartment since the start of September but I've been at home all this time and up until this weekend I hadn't slept there at all. My Australian roommate (girl) invited me over to join her, her boyfriend, her brother, and her boyfriend's brother for my first Shabbat in Haifa. She also invited our other (hot) (boy) roommate but he was busy. The whole weekend was a blast, including midnight wanderings and aggressive political arguments and afternoon drinking games. And the best part of all is how goddamn sexy my apartment is. It's on the 7th floor, and I've got the room with the cross ventilating windows (Israel is hot), and a view of the sea and the Haifa bay from my bed. I think my favorite single moment from the entire weekend was opening my eyes slowly on Saturday with the view of the sea stretching out vertically (I was on my side.)
Now I'm busy suffering the lactard pains from too much Bailey's and nagging at myself to wake up and make some real Japlans. My trip to Japan with Jeffrey starts in one week exactly and I am not happy with the level of Japlanning I've done and there are plenty of other things I need to take care of before we go. I am really really excited though. :)
Tonight is my last Open Mic night at Subkuch Milega, the Indian restaurant-bar-guesthouse-place-thing I've been going to every week. I'm dressing up a little prettier than usual, and I got Frankie to accompany me on the piano. Hopefully it'll be as special as I'd like it to be, but there's never a guarantee with Subkuch Milega. Some nights just come out weird.
