Would you let a Trojan Horse in?
Here are quite a few people who would! [YouTube]

I guess some people can't learn from the mistakes of others...

So, how about it?
Hello all,

It's been almost two years, I believe, since last we met. How about we pick our books once more and continue the meetings?

Yoav and I just moved into our new home, and I'd love to have the group back together again. Maybe even add some new people.

So - how about it?

Shall we?
So, we've had our break, and now shall we resume our adventures in Greek literature? Say, starting July?

My grandmother died yesterday. I will need a break from our group for a little while. I expect we can resume meeting in March. I'll let you know. Sorry.

Meeting next Sunday, Jan 22nd
I'm sorry, I won't be able to have our Tragedy meeting today, so I must rule in favor of next week (sorry, lopush...).

Meeting cancelled
I regret to announce there will be no meeting today, as I have caught a cold, have a hoarse throat, and am spreading disease!

So I shall sequester myself at home and work on my Greek, and we can meet next Sunday, or in two weeks, whichever you prefer (we know what lopush prefers...:))

Meeting Tonight, delay
We meet tonight, at Amir's office, to begin Sophocles's Oedipus Rex, but this one time I won't be able to make it before 20:15. So let's try to be there at 20:15, and we'll do the introduction and hopefully some of the beginning (perhaps up to the first episode).

Meeting Cancelled; Next Meeting Poll
I'm sorry to say I must cancel tonight's tragedy reading.

Would you like our next session to be next Sunday (Dec 25th; Sonis: Latin week) or the one after that (Jan 1st)? Please let me know what you prefer.

Oedipi Reges!

I finally found Oedipus Rex in Dyonon [insert standard rant about this being supposed to be an academic book store], and bought one for Amir, as he requested.

Taking a chance, I bought two extra copies, assuming at least some of you don't have the text yet. The first two of you to say "moose!" can have these copies (they cost 54NIS apiece).

We meet tonight, at Amir's office, 19:30, as usual, to read the rest of Agamemnon.

Oh me,oh my.
Here's the opening quote from the first chapter of Watership Down:
"Chorus: Why do you cry out thus, unless at some vision of horror?
Cassandra: The house reeks of death and dripping blood.
Chorus: How so? 'Tis but the odour of the altar sacrifice.
Cassandra: The stench is like a breath from the tomb."

And the Hebrew version:

מקהלה: למה זה תצעקי כך, אם לא למראה פלצות?
קסנדרה: מן הבית נודף ריח מוות ונטפי דם.
מקהלה: היתכן? אין זה אלא ריח הקרבן עולה מן המזבח.
קסנדרה: הצחנה היא כמו משב מקבר.

אני לא מאמינה שזכרתי :)
וד"א פרק מספר ארבעים ושמונה נקרא: "דיאה אקס מאכינה" :).

Meeting Thursday
We meet as usual, on Thursday, at 19:30, in Amir's office at Ra'anana, to continue with Agamemnon. We might finish it in this session.

It's time to start thinking abour our next play, Sophocles's Oedipus Rex (Oidippous Tyrannos in the original Greek). I'm obviously no good in procuring copies for us. Would one of you be willing to undertake the task of getting everyone copies, collecting money, etc.?
5:21 pm
So where are we having our next meeting? cinamon offered her living room which is large, lovely and in blissful TA.

לגבי יום שלישי
אני מודיעה בזאת רשמית שימי שלישי לא באים בחשבון מבחינתי. כל יום אחר יתאים.

Just to make sure
We did agree to meet this Tuesday instead of Thursday, did we not?

Current Mood: confused
