i think the syndication feature of my bloggity blog blah blah isn't working, because i wrote a thing and it's not updating to here. but heyyy, i wrote a thing. you can find it here. if you're so inclined.

in other news, this is funny.


the year of giving, month 12.

well, this is the end. i decided to write this final year of giving blog post on livejournal, for no better reason other than that i'm ocd and i want all this shit to be in the same place.

so there was a huge forest fire earlier this month in my parents' hometown of haifa, israel. and it was devastating and more than 40 people died and it's just terrible terrible. so for my last month of giving, i'm going back to my roots and donating money to help with fire relief efforts.

and that's it! the year of giving is over!

now i have to come up with another new year's resolution for next year. maybe i'll continue this project. the only annoying thing about this year's resolution is all the mail i'm getting now from every organization i've donated to. i think i even got a letter from the jewish national fund, which is the organization that plants trees. TREES. they're sending me PAPER! i hate the world.

anyway, let's see what happens. in the meantime, read all about lindsay lohan and other things (as if there is anything else to read about) in my new and improved (slightly) blog on wordpress.

is anyone out there?

i've been publishing to my new blog for like a week, but i miss livejournal. isn't that sad? nobody's commenting on my shit, and then i'm like "i'm no longer relevant!" even though that's not true. maybe it is.

i got a onesie for hanukkah. it has sports equipment on it.

cool vs. not cool.

cool: having your a cappella group asked to do a gig for a company holiday party.

cool: everyone gets paid a very handsome fee.

not cool: having to wear any of these.

um.

cool: wearing this instead.

these are the things i have done recently.

  1. i rode around the city on a trolley, while drinking champagne and wine and other things. and eating almonds.

  2. i danced with a boy to the song "i wish (i was a little bit taller)" by skee-lo. i remembered all the words, even though the song came out when i was a junior in high school. a scrillion years ago.

  3. i ate a big mac! i think it might have made me gain 4 pounds overnight, but i wouldn't swear to it.

  4. i taught myself to play several katy perry songs, one bruno mars song, and one lady gaga song on the piano. by ear. it was embarrassing.

  5. i ran 2.5 miles on the treadmill in my gorilla shoes. i was supposed to run 3 miles, but i was getting a blister on the bottom of my foot and just couldn't hang anymore. if i had different shoes on, i totally could've done 3 miles.

  6. baked muffins. then ate some. that's what she said.

  7. i won a $10 itunes gift card because i knew how many hills are in san francisco. (43)

  8. i ate at burger bar, and had a fancy tiny milkshake.

  9. i bought some levi's jeans.

  10. i went to the doctor so she could look at this bump i had on my wrist. turns out it's nothing, a galskjdfklasdj cyst, and she gave me a wrist brace to wear for an unrelated matter. and she gave me a flu shot.

  11. i was asked to perform for a company's christmas party, where we will dress up like elves and get paid cash money.

  12. i took lots of pictures.

  13. i wore a bow tie.

remember i'm in an a cappella group? on saturday we have a holiday concert! it's at fiddler's green near fisherman's wharf; doors open at 5 p.m., and we start singing around 6. then we'll all drink irish coffees and be merry.

we're going to sing mostly christmas stuff: some traditional, some not traditional, and one song that sounds like steel drums. so yeah, if you're into that sort of thing, i'd love to see you there; and if you can't make it or aren't into that sort of thing, we're going to have another concert in the spring. maybe you can learn to love it by then.

once upon a time, i was a blogger.

now i'm a faker. but it's not for lack of want, but for lack of anything to say. and for lack of motivation.

in any case, hi. look. here i am. thanksgiving weekend went well. nablopomo didn't happen. but i did it last year and the year before that and the year before that, so... i guess i fail in 2010. whatevs.

you know what's not failing? my fake 10k training! i'm up to 2.5 miles. clearly the best part about any sort of exercise is the "buying gear" part. so i went to sports basement and spent money and "bought gear" and was like "it's for my health!" so that made it better.

i bought fancy little cold-weather running clothes. these tight black pants with a little zippered pocket at the butt for my key. and gloves. and this other shirt thing. i'm basically these guys. but what i sound like is this guy. (why is that a ringtone? why was that the first thing that came up when i googled "old man coughing"? why do i sound like an old man coughing?) anyway, i sound like an old man coughing. i snort and cough and go "chhhhhhhhuuuuuaaaaaughhh." it's so gross, i hope none of you has to ever go running with me.

this weekend i go up to 3 miles. i'm so nervous.

the year of giving, month 11.

omg my year of giving is almost over. i can't believe almost a year has gone by since this happened.

my mailbox is inundated with everyone begging me to re-donate. the spca sends me stickers basically every day. who knows, maybe i'll do it again next year? there are so many worthy organizations to give to.

this month, i'm giving to the crohn's and colitis foundation of america, because my best friend's sister has colitis and had to be in the hospital and it's pretty treacherous. she's better now, and it's her birthday, so mins, happy birthday and i hope this donation helps them find a cure or better treatments or whatever.

today i ate a muffuletta.

there might be a lesbian joke in there somewhere. anyway, what's a muffuletta you may ask? it's only THE BEST sandwich in the world. the bread! the salt! the olives! the salami!

i'm dying. i can't even talk about it, so here is my journey eating the muffuletta, in pictures:
