Oh hey, what’s up with you? I really have nothing. Allow me to demonstrate.

1. I got re-elected to the co-op board. As we have discussed, this is not a good thing. Especially because this year, two people who are suing each other are also on the board. The first meeting of the year was exactly the disaster you are picturing. The managing agent actually walked out of the meeting. The president told me he’s had it and next year, I should be president. The only prudent solution, I think, is to move to the suburbs. Can I live with you?

2. The holidays are coming! This means one thing for me: seasonal candy, cookies, and drinks! I already had some peppermint bark. Also, a pumpkin pie Clif bar. For the nutrition, naturally.

3. Why is it that they release all the cool phones when your contract is about 6-8 months from being done? By that time, T-Mobile will probably be out of business, so I don’t know what I’m waiting for. Oh right, I can’t bring myself to pay $500 for a phone. In the meantime, my iPod has a battery which lasts an hour and is utterly out of space. I should wait for the new phone instead, shouldn’t I? Sigh.

4. Jorge Posada. Sigh again. Why must we get old? On the plus side, there are finally dates for pitchers & catchers to report. Without baseball, and with tennis sporadic, I am stuck watching reruns of Friends in the evening. I think this is why my health has been so bad lately. It has been suggested that I have whooping cough by some and this is not implausible.

5. Pious B and I are looking to travel to Europe (UK? Italy?) for Jesus’ birthday and attached break. The fares are miserable! Goyim, don’t you want to stay home by the hearth with your families? I have seen this on a million TV specials! It has to be true.

6. It’s a gorgeous day today. Before I knew this, I planned to go to Ikea. Am I mad? Yes, surely. If I make it out alive, I am getting a seasonal beverage, I don’t care if it’s 65 degrees.

Have a nice month! I’m pretty sure that’ll be the next time I post.

It’s “it’s been 20 years since 1991” month on JBall as in life and to celebrate, title comes from a song on Pearl Jam’s Ten, an album I wore out in my flannel days. Did you see Pearl Jam’s 20? Oh, please do. Great documentary, great band, a reminder that we’re the first mammals to wear pants.

    Help sponsor our trip. For the price of a cup of coffee, you can help two vivacious, sassy maidens experience a once in a lifetime trip. As part of your sponsorship, you’ll receive daily updates of our exploits and photos of us eating gelato/spotted dick. Open your heart today.

    Ten is still my favorite album of all time.

    That is all. I felt like you should know.

  3. Becca says:

    Yes, pictures of us eating spotted dick! Or the Kosher equivalent! Please give!

    BTW, the price of a cup of coffee would be a Venti Caramel Macchiato. Thanks for your understanding.

    Lydia, I am glad to know that! It really still stands up and sustains a great mood throughout the whole thing. Pretty amazing.

    It was also my very first compact disc purchase.

    I wish I remembered what my first .mp3 purchase was. I could astonish my future great nephews and nieces by remembering my first album (Thriller), my first cassette (Slippery When Wet), my first CD (Ten) and my first .mp3 (?). Alas…

  5. Becca says:

    Very memorable! Mine, CD-wise, were Tears For Fears/Songs From the Big Chair and Erasure/The Circus, which I bought the same day. The first I’d long had on cassette, the other was a new release.

    I bought my first mp3 on iTunes, so it wasn’t hard to look back at my purchases and find it. It was Bob Mould’s Wishing Well, one of my favorite songs of all time and which I also only had on cassette so couldn’t be ripped onto the computer.

    I will gladly contribute the price of 3 venti caramel macchiatos if I get home-made rugelach in return. By March 30th 🙂

    If I had time, I would totally do a rugelach sale! I may have time over the break if we don’t get tickets. :/
