sorry about my language. I meant silly of course. this was taken in college, got to prepare, every day a little like Purim. I felt inspired to go to a Sorority Rush information meeting dressed like this. I got fashion sense, right?

dating in the bay

ohhh. after being back here for a year, I'm finally understanding why things don't manifest when dating people who say,"I just ate some wheat, I'm not feeling well, I'll call you in a few days" (which turns into weeks) great. points to my friend, yes, his name is Snooky who picked me up at the farmers market, and was bold enough to ask me what I do with fennel. we exchanged cards. he actually did call and I am enjoying spending time with him

would God want to live here?

I just came from the Jewish home for the Aged and saw their new sterile, cold synagouge. what was the architect thinking? not a place where I would want to praise the creator,. Concrete. not very warm and inviting.

Natural beauty

moving around so often, I don't have many beauty products. my motto is if you can eat it, use it. I like to condition my hair with applc cider vinegar, coconut oil also makes things soft and is a good moisturizer. For toothpaste, I recommend using baking soda, or Dr. Bronners peppermint soap.

see this movie!

I saw my first movie in a theatre in years-ok, I did see 2 Jewish documentaries in the past 2 years. This one is a gem. Once is a musical and I'm listening to the soundtrack over and over. I even went to see it on a sunny afternoon. /
