You know you are a girlie girl when you see a link to a site on a lot of people's webpages and never bother to check it out because you assume (ohh so wrongly) that it is all about sports. I'm talking about the site Little Green Footballs. I had the mistaken idea that it was a site devoted to Irish soccer. Now, I do like soccer --it is the only team sport that I enjoy watching --but I don't like it enough to go to a website about it. Little Green Footballs is NOT about soccer, nor is it about the Irish, nor is there anything little about it. It is quite simply a must-read. I'm so glad that my mouse accidentally clicked the wrong link and lead me there. I'm turning in my hair-ribbons and donning an LGF jersey. Quite simply, the site rocks.

- Name: Yael K
- Location: Tel Aviv, Israel
I am not typical. I am not your typical Aliyah candidate: I'm very secular, did not grow up in a zionist household, and have no family living in Israel. I'm not what people typically think of when they hear "Jewish": I have blond hair, blue eyes, and fair skin. I am not your typical American: I speak 2 1/2 languages, used to vote democratic (and I'm originally from the South!), and the last thing I want is a house in the suburbs.
So what am I? In many ways, I'm a little bundle of contradictions. Stubborn yet not overly-opinionated (at least on most issues). Shy and reserved when I first meet someone but outgoing and bubbly once you get to know me. Practical but also fun-loving and spontaneous (in a practical kind of way, lol).
I believe that I am a kind and caring person (hey, don't we all?). I am passionate about life and fiercely protective of those I love. And I'm crazy about my
3 5 6 cats. And the 40 or so I care for on the street.
