Sometimes I feel that my life is like Seinfeld. A mix of dark and funny humor. I am dramatic and high energy and my friends’ lives are just bizarre. For instance, my friend just lost a ton of weight on the tuna diet. Basically, he’s eating tuna because that’s all he can afford. I couldn’t even make that up.
If there’s a Law and Order marathon on, I’m watching it. My sister thinks it’s unhealthy. Some faves: Downton Abbey, NCIS, Intelligence, Two Broke Girls, Top Chef, Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations (although he’s really crass).
Growing up in the Bible belt classmates were very concerned about my soul. I was either going to hell or chosen. It never bothered me too much. If I ended up in hell I figured it would be a big Jew party.
During my semester abroad I had a standing date with a group of Australian friends/activists. We went out to pubs and ran around Melbourne climbing buildings (ask me later). I still have friends all over the world.
I’m currently taking a pottery class after work. To my surprise, they tell me I’m a natural. I can cook anything but can’t make brownies out of a box. I also make a mean matzah ball soup. My nephews can’t get enough of it.
