Z is for Ziva David

Ziva David, my favorite ex-Mossad assassin, who kicks butt and I totally named my car after her.
Me and Ziva, my first car.
 Yes, I'm that nerdy.  You should know that by now. :)  NCIS is my favorite television show. 

Ziva is beautiful and she kicks butt!
Ziva begins as a liason for Mossad and no one really trusts her.  Except Gibbs, because he trusts his gut and he witnesses her loyalty when she kills her own brother to protect Gibbs and because he was a traitor to their country.  She changes at NCIS as she develops friendships with Tony, McGee, Abby, and Ducky.  Ziva goes through several painful experiences; her friend and lover is killed by Tony, she is captured and tortured for months, her father is hard for her to communicate with (especially after he didn't save her), and so on.  Ziva never gives up.  The experiences change her, but for the better.  I love her character.  I also love the friendship between Ziva and Tony.  (BTW, I'm totally all for Tiva if they ever allow them to get into a relationship on the show.)  :)

Tiva: Tony + Ziva = AWESOMENESS!
One of my favorite things about her is her struggle to understand English idioms - they are hard!


And that's Z.  The A-Z Blogging Challenge is complete and now I'm ready for a short blogging break! (Though I still will be posting my updated goals tomorrow like always!) Thanks to everyone for joining me and reading about my "Awesome Nerd-ness"!

Thanks and congrats to everyone who finished!  WE DID IT!

    1. Her idioms always make me laugh - one of my favorite parts of her character! Thanks! My car definitely has the same personality as Ziva.

      Thanks Laura!

  3. My car is dark blue. I call it the TARDIS. :-D

    Congrats on finishing both the A to Z Challenge AND Camp NaNo! I ended up finishing my story for Camp at under 30,000 words (27,772, to be precise), so while I didn't make my word count goal, I did make my "real" goal (which was to finish the draft that has been languishing since November).

    In other news: I can't believe April's over. o.O

  4. I used to really like N.C.I.S until they got rid of Sasha Alexander's character...then I stopped watching.

    Looks like I may have missed out, though :)

    Congrats on finishing the A to Z Challenge!

    1. I have to say Mark, I felt the same way initially. My best friend introduced me to NCIS and after Kate died, I didn't want to watch anymore. She made me give it a try, though I claimed I'd never like Ziva more than Kate. I'm happy to admit I was wrong. 3 episodes with Ziva and I was hooked. :) You should try it again!

      Thanks Mark! Congrats to you too on finishing!
