I hope you’re all having (or about to have) a great weekend! I’m not, because my air conditioner just broke down for the 50th time this summer AND I WANT TO SCREAM. $#$#@#$!@!@#$#$#$$#&^**^^*%*(#$%#$%!!!!!!!!! Nope, that didn’t help. I still want to scream.     Fortunately, I am leaving for Art in Action on Tuesday, and …

Lunar Eclipse

  The photos of the interesting part are kind of crappy, but anyway, this was exciting. I don’t think I’ve ever watched a full eclipse before. And you guys know how much I like spheres these days.

Blah, Blah, Blobs

For the past couple of weeks, I haven’t had as much motivation for torching as usual. The days are becoming hotter, as they always seem to do around this time of year – those weeks when summer suddenly drops down on you out of nowhere, and you walk around thinking, “Was it really this hot …

Blowing Out Candles

Today’s my birthday.   Today is also Holocaust Day. (Holocaust Day is marked on the Hebrew calendar, so the dates coincide only once every 22 years, if I am not mistaken. As far as my birthday is concerned, things could have been worse – once I had a friend who was born on February 29.) …

Home Again

I had a great time in Germany and Austria. A big thanks goes out to Audrey and Cornelia for making my visit so wonderful! It was great to meet so many new people, learn about the countries and language and taste some local cuisine. You can see some photos from my trip on Flickr. I …

It’s been over a month ot life in Suburbia now, and so far, I can say that life is pretty good. I’m almost over the traumas of moving and things are calm and quiet now. I had sort of a love-hate relationship with my old apartment – in the last couple of years it felt …

Happy 2011!

I wish you all a wonderful year! I hope 2011 is a good one! I wanted to show you some stuff I am starting the new year off with. Okay, to be honest, I started the year off dealing with a plumbing disaster of catastrophic proportions, but I will spare you the details of that. …
