My sister, Vilja, has been pressuring me to post on the blog for a while now. I've been avoiding it, because my life isn't super interesting these days. it is a lovely life, just not action packed. And who wants to read about that? I would rather read about adventures.
With my job, I now have health insurance. So i finally went to the doctor and the dentist for the first time in three years and got a clean bill of health. I am a complete supporter of affordable health care available to all. it felt good to go get to know my doctor (even with her raised eyebrows at my response to her "are you sexually active?" question and double checking my age. In case you are wondering, that would be a no. and yes, i am 29. don't rub it in). Preventative care, i'm for it.
Oh! World Cup! If you aren't following it, you are crazy, and that is all i have to say about that.
I have a new roommate, Laura la segunda. She is a friend of my sister meri's, and she is a delight to talk with. She's good about reminding what Rabbi Shmuley says about relationships. I'm trying to get her to stay by encouraging a relationship between her and my friend Josh, and I think my devious plan is working! Bwahahaha! It is only encouraging my jewish grandmother matchmaking tendencies.
BP oil spill in the Gulf? Disgusting on so many levels. I think this is even more evidence of the need to seek alternative sources of energy and increase regulation. And, a federal judge with investments in numerous companies that do off-shore drilling has NO RIGHT to determine that the government moratorium on off-shore drilling is illegal. Conflict of interest?
I've been to the beach 3 times so far-- Jones Beach with mormons, Brighton beach for the sunset with a fella I'm digging, and close to Long Beach with a batch of lovely lady friends from grad school. No tan however, since this summer I'm wearing 70 spf-- i turn 30 in September and have no desire for wrinkles or sun spots.
My sister Liina is having another baby in August!! Another niece! And many other people I love are having babies. i am so excited. I love the little ones. My sister Liina also became a US citizen last week, so props to her!
that is all for now. More interesting things... well, later.
