Good Mail Day

I know, I know, I've been remiss in my blogging. But, I've been making lots of krepach for the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashana. If you've ever made kreplach - you'd know that it's big pain in the touches, but it's worth every bite.

I have my grandmother's recipe. She never measures a darn thing, but during one trip to Israel, I actually brought all my measuring cups and spoons and actually got all her famous family favs down on paper. I know it turned out good since last night my brother had FIVE helpings, count 'em FIVE! of kreplach. That felt good.
What was also nice was a little letter that came in the mail about two weeks ago letting me know that some of my artwork will be published in this book, now available on

My soulmate, Lisa, and I had a little personal project going on of sending each other postcards once a month that described something important going on in our life at that moment. There were no rules, just a postcard of whatever we wanted to express. While we absolutely did not begin this project as something for others to see, I think that others will truly relate to the intimacy of our friendship and our messages in the few postcards we shared with the book authors. Go to her blog for more details, she describes it way better than me!

You know You Live in LA When...

ok - I would hate you to think that I'm boasting - but the stars have been out in spades lately! Come on - it's fun hearing about them isn't it? This is all in one week people!

You know you live in LA when...

Gary Sinise is in line behind you for frozen yogurt at your neighborhood joint. He's the guy standing in the middle up there. He's currently starring in CSI New York.

Patti Stranger (of Millionaire Matchmaker) is getting take-out at one of your favorite restaurants. She's wearing no make-up, hair's not "done" and is wearing flip flops. The exact opposite of how she tells her clients to dress. Hmmmm, I guess comfort isn't that over-rated after all?
Nikki Sixx stands next to you on the first day of school, looking a little sad as he hugs his daughter goodbye. She has no apparent tattoos.
You find it interesting that Mare Winningham has the same pediatrician as you. You kinda remember that she was in St. Elmo's Fire, but thought she's was really fun a month ago on Weeds (HBO - great show!).
Speaking of Weeds, that super-cute blonde kid - Hunter Parrish - who plays Nancy's son. Well, yah, he was hanging out with his buddies and his big-ass, hairy dog at the local Concerts in the Park. Yes, he is yummy, and looks WAY better without the pancake makeup. I need the number of whoever does his eyebrows.
