I rock. Oh yes, I can see the doubt in your eyes, but it is soooo true.

I went to the Clothing Exchange tonight. It is the Baha'i World Centre's response to Goodwill - except it is free. Any clothes (or books, shoes, dishes, etc.) that we don't want - or don't have room for when packing to return home - we can drop them off at the CE so that someone else can use them. This is especially useful for people who come from places which do not have the same climate as Israel. So, I was looking to either supplement my winter stock or find something I might need for the summer that I might just end up staying for. And I did find a few things.

But the queen of all finds was for Mark.

I can't even believe it. I almost didn't look through the piles of men's pants for him; he's not the most typical size, so even finding his size in shops is difficult. But I thought, aw, what the heck, there are only a few pairs as it is. Well. Whehehelll. Second pair of jeans I picked up turned out to be a brand new - all labels on - pair of GAP jeans in Mark's exact size already hemmed to his exact length. Can you believe it? I could barely believe it - I had to check the tag - this really is men's, right?

It is worth mentioning the way pants are typically made for men in Israel: they are low cut in the waist and high cut in the inseam (polite speak for "crotch"). So, if you get the picture ... there must be a lot of uncomfortable men out there. Well, not so with the jeans made by the semi-slave labor of GAP! And to get a solution for free was even better.

Here's a photo of the happy customer. Not the best shot of Mark, but the jeans came out perfectly. :-)

[and when Movable Type is no longer being snotty I will share that photo with you - err, Nae, why can't I upload photos when on a Mac?!]

In any case, to know that I was able to get a good pair of jeans for my rather agonized husband was very gratifying and his overwhelmingly happy response was the perfect icing on the cake!

Tee hee!

mara... when are you guys leaving the BWC?
i LOVE the clothing exchange btw...

Welllllllllllllllllllll. . . . well, Sjo, umm, our departure date as of now is April 30, 2006.

(unless we stay a year to tide Mark's office over)

When is your wedding?

Nae, why can't I upload photos when I'm on a Mac?

I'm not sure. I can upload photos from my Mac.

I do recommend using Firefox 1.5, since that's what I use and there are extensions within Firefox and Movable Type that allow for easier editing, but file uploading should be no different.

What's happening?

Well, nothing. I choose my file and then when I click "upload", nothing happens. Maybe I'll try Firefox and see if that makes a difference.

Hmmm. Unfortunately, in Safari, there's no easy way to tell if you should just wait a bit longer or give up, because you don't know if it's hung or if it's still transmitting. At least with Firefox you get the circular marquee in the upper right hand corner.

You might be running up against the upload limit, although you're supposed to get a warning if you do. I've set it to allow files no bigger than 256kB to upload. There are some excellent technical reasons for this, if you're really interested.

Anyway, how about an iChat later?

Yeah, I need to reduce the size. It worked - to that point - in Firefox.

We're home for the next hour or two, if you'd like to iChat.

Okay, so where are the pictures?

Now I've run into a slight resistance from the recipient of my good fortune. . . . :-)

It may seem type of apparent but if you reside with that slogan you'll transform your chances to succeed in life:

"Just attempt -- you could succeed".

This is getting a bit more subjective, however this is a great blog.keep up the good work.

Real superb info can be found on web site.

Sorry for the huge review, but I'm really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it's the right choice for you.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Sorry for the huge review, but I'm really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it's the right choice for you.

If you're still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you'll know which is right for you.
