Bless me!!

I just saw the Pope!! I'm excited. He is staying around the corner and though they kept us a block away he drove by in the Popemobile and I actually saw him. Yes, I waved. And then, the Popemobile came around the block in front of my building and was loaded onto a truck. so I took my picture with it! Very cool for a Jewish girl!!

pandering pronunciation lesson

I try not to be political in the blog but this one is too hard to pass up.
If any of you suffered through the Compassion Forum about religion in Politics tonight, you might not have noticed but Hillary in her attempt to woo Jewish voters was talking about all her " rabbi friends" who sent her quotes from the Bible for the holiday of "pure-am."
However, it's pronounced "(Poor-im) as in Purim!" Oy vey is all I can say!

kvetch kvetch kvetch

Well, I just spent what seemed like hours on the phone with one of those impossible travel sites where once you make your reservation it takes forever and infinite patience in case, god forbid, you have to make a change or question something. You go through the intermidable voice message list, get a real person from India who insists on calling you by your first name and then is unable to figure out how to get you to the Supervisor without putting you on hold for minutes or cutting you off! I HATE THIS!! This time I hung up and they actually called me back, which was nice except it accomplished nothing because the new and cheaper price that was available was NOT for me since it was more than 24 hours from my initial purchase.
I know I know...too much information. But I liked it so much better in the old days when there were just people on the phone who seemed to actually know what they were doing.
