Finally, I got pictures from two events I had last month; a birthday party for on of my university gang's member, and a beach cleaning operation my faculty's student council organized.
Birthday Party: The gang member, who's name is also Meirav, took us to a dance-bar called The Budha at the closed old Tel Aviv dock. The whole university gang was there, which is cool because we don't get to see each other much these days what with the strike still going on and everybody in their own job.
First off, the gang:
From right to left; birthday girl Meirav, Neta, moi, Guy, Dana and Shai.
And this is Shiran who was taking the group picture:
Olga, who was in the little ladies' room at the time:

Neta, moi and Dana (isn't she hot?)
I'll stop briefing you about the names already and just post the pictures...
Being silly with chips...
When you're drunk enough, you do stuff like this:
We really aught to be studying engineering....so much talent...
Being a responsible adult, I was not drinking the whole evening because I gave Dana and Shiran a lift to the club and back *pats self* good girl. Managed to avoid smoking, too, after 6 months of no smoking, so yay for me.
Beach cleaning: The faculty of life science (zoology, microbiology, virology, botanics, ecology, biotechnology and bioinformatics) being the hub of tree hugging dorks (accept those who continue their studies and become mouse dissectors in Block-10-like labs...) our two representatives at the student council decided to organize a beach cleaning operation in Jaffa at a small beach. Indeed, not many came, but those who did come had a great fun. It's the beginning of bird migrating season and we kept seeing arrowheads and films of cormorants overhead coming like waves. Also, the beach was very quiet and serene like only a beach at a winter's late afternoon can be. I must warn you that I look awful in these pictures so you'll just have to pretend I have a paper bag on my head (bad hair day) Pictures:
We had these big plastic bags and ran around the beach picking trash up, playing "He who finds the first bong/used condom gets a free HIV test on behalf of the faculty" and many other fun games.
And then, me and a couple of guys got into wheel digging, removing dumped wheels from the beach and boy was that a messy, hard work. My back and arms were insanely cramped the next day. Here are some wheel piccies:
Digging them up
Dragging them away
Taking them piece by piece
And then I found some sea cucumbers (a few Holothuria tubulosa)!! Went over to brag them off to the rest of the biology nerds
We put them back right where we found them afterwards, we did.
The whole gang
The day's howl at sunset
And that's the end of the picture post!
