"The Lion, the Wilco and the Wrapping Paper"

Where were we on April 4th? This entry will tell you about a assembloge [sic].

While surfing the web one day...and I am NOT a sports fan...Bad opening too contrived.

I really enjoy online games, particularly flash point-and click ones. I was "poking" around online and came across some flash experiments, as they are called by their creator. After testing out the experiments, I was led to his blog. On one of the posts (and he keeps a very detailed account of his day-to-day life, which is never boring), there was a poem. I wrote an email, "I noticed you had a poem by Yehuda Amichai in your blog." Then the disclaimer, " (I never do this kind of thing but I do have that spontaneity spark) Is there anything you want from Israel? We live in Jerusalem. My husband and I will be in the States next month and actually visiting Chicago."
Shout out to J. Botnick for driving us to movie theater and back.
And you can read Felix's side of the story here:


This one has a photo of He'Brew beer which was started by a past participant of Livnot U'Lehibanot:

Feeling 100 Shekels Lighter

I have made many notes on things I have wanted to write about but they remain...just notes. Today I bring you a tale of woe. I was swindled by a cab driver.
Maybe the details matter, maybe they don't. Maybe you have experienced deception, self -doubt, and the aftermath of trusting the wrong person. Maybe you haven't. Just remember this: Wear sunscreen.
