About meAndrogynous gender blind creature, a mother of two and a possesor of something like 7000 books.

Vaguly Jewish in upbringing I grew up in a Kibbutz in the Negev Desert of Israel... Raising pigs... This made me realise from a very young age that life and humanity is full of contradiction and doesn't really make sense most of the time.

So far in life I managed to work as a librarian, medical plastic process line manager, pig herder, apple picker, wine waitress, party entertainer, archaeologist, belly dancer and tarot reader...

After graduating from university doing a degree in "useless stuff" (Unless there are still people talking Akkadian around... no? DAMN!) I settled into motherhood which I find uplifting and inspiring... also - it gives me a great excuse to play Lego and computer games and leaves me plenty of time to...ummm... read books...


Lamasu has a severe alergy to FALTZANUT (that is Hebrew for Verbal Flatualance) and tends to use dots everywhere she can... like that... see what I mean.........?

About my libraryI am begining to catalogue my entire library... This may take some time... TIME WHICH I DON'T HAVE!!!

Review Policy: I have a very free style often badly spelled with rude lack of regard to grammar. You might consider it more akin to MINDSPILL rather than a REVIEW.

Since I often review literature that is very homoerotic (that is gay porn for those of you who are not too sensitive ^_~) I chose not to share it directly on this website. In those cases I provide a direct link to my Live Journal post. Be advised that those reviews will contain graphic descriptions and strong language... I am yet to discover a way to discuss explicitly sexual fiction in refined manner without making it seem like a comedy.

Ahh yes, reading The Rubaiyyat and sipping absinthe sounds like a lovely way to pass the time! Your doll is a lucky fellow. :)

Awesome photo!

Fixed. Thanks for the response.

Could you please clarify if this is actually the game or just the manual?

I;m trying to decide if that record needs to be combined with this:

Hi Zehavit_Lamasu,

I see you have Meir Shalev as favorite author, and so do I! I have a question: in the list of books on Shalev's author page are several titles in Hebrew. I don't read Hebrew, but I take it you do. Would you be able to link these Hebrew titles to the English titles, so that the list is better organised?

By the way, what is Akkadian?



A Friend

(Carol Elaine Faivre-Scott)

Each of us has a hidden place
Somewhere deep within ourselves;
A place where we go to get away,
To think things through,
To be alone, to be ourselves.

This unique place, where we confront our deepest feelings,
Becomes a storehouse of all our hopes,
All our needs, all our dreams,
And even our unspoken fears.
It encompasses the essence of who we are and what we want to be.

But now and then, whether by chance or design,
Someone discovers a way into that place we thought was ours alone.
And we allow that person to see, to feel and to share
All the reason, all the uncertainty
And all the emotion we've stored up there.

That person adds new perspective to our hidden realm,
Then quietly settles down in his own corner of our special place,
Where a bit of himself will stay forever.
And we call that person a friend.
I'm pretty new to the yaoi genre myself. Some of it's horrible, some of it okay. I know what you mean about book piles! My husband built me two new LONG shelves and they're already overfull and I still have piles in various places. Have to tell you that your Sweet Admiration blog had me cracking up! My son also loves the Lego Indiana Jones so I could totally relate and since I had just read the book myself the segues between the two topics were great! I just got him the Lego Batman for PS2 so that is his newest thing now.
Hi! I just wanted to say I really enjoyed your review on "Sleeping with Money". I rarely follow the review links off of LT but after reading your profile here I was curious :-) I think I got here from the "Sweet Admiration" book page. Turns out we have quite a few, and varied, books in common. I always find it interesting when people have the such a diverse library. I also agreed with your opinion on "Wicked Gentlemen", loved that story! I'll definitely be checking out your other LJ reviews and I'm so glad you are sharing your links here!!
Thanks for the accept, Zehavit - good to meet you here! And I do wish Maria McCann would write another. As Meat Loves Salt was amazing.


I like your taste in books and topics, so I've friended you here and at livejournal. Hope you don't mind.
Hey are there any tips you can five me on using this website. Its realy awesome and I love it but at the same time really confusing.Like how to put tags on you page and etc....
And I really like your web page.
Oh, dear!

Please accept my profuse apologies. I have been so busy writing I'm ashamed to say I haven't visited Library Thing in months. So when I discovered your note there relating to your review of my western, Calico, I was (an am) embarrassed that you might have thought I was being rude for not answering immediately. I do hope you'll excuse me.

And I do hope, as you indicated, that you will be reading more of my books. "The Dream Ender", #11 in my Dick Hardetty Mystery series, has been released since we last talked.

Again, my apologies. A writer simply cannot afford to ignore a reader.

Best regards,

I have been bitten by a cataloguing demon which has taken my little reading list account and compelled me to start entering my entire library. It has worked my fingers to the bone all afternoon and intends to continue!

Plix send help ... and new wrists.


Hi Zehavit,
We share three books , and the same dot mania ... you know what I mean ???
Spooky ...
Ah, STINGER. I love that magazine!
Hello, Lamasu:

Please excuse the long delay in sending this, but I wanted to thank you for reviewing my western/romance/adventure novel, "Calico". Your comments and criticisms were well taken, and your candor appreciated. I'm glad you did like certain elements, and will do my best to take your points to heart.

I'd never written a western before, and did it largely with an eye to a market sadly teens and young adults, who have precious few positive role models in fiction.

I don't know if you've had a chance to read any of my ten-soon-to-be-eleven book mystery Dick Hardesty Mystery series, four of which have been finalists for a Lambda Literary Award, but I would sincerely hope you might give them a try. I think you might find many of your objections to "Calico" not applicable in this series.

Again, thank you. It is far better to be mentioned with something less than great enthusiasm than not to be mentioned at all.

Best Regards,

DINGDINGDING CORRECT!! Award yourself one of our FAAABULOUS prizes! :)

Lovely to see you here!
Welcome welcome welcome! :D.

I knew you'd get here sooner or later ... glad you've arrived!
Seeing as you and I both have a taste for Chris Hunt, and that you possess what looks like the entire GMP back catalogue... you must be Zehavit ;) Kudos if you can guess who I am on LJ!
