I've always wanted to go to burning man...and in less than a month, I WILL!
thanks for putting our joy and affirmed civil rights in the proper context, my dears. woot woot WOOT for the good guys!!! 
I was kind of all over the place in junior high-- hadn't yet found dar williams/indigo girls/ani, which pretty much defined high school; but I was already super-into tori amos. she was the ultimate conduit for my pubescent angst! I was also heavily into REM and the red hot chili peppers, which did...
I haven't watched the show at all (despite the fact that people keep giving me links to download it for free), because I just do not care for reality TV, period. It's stupid, and watching it makes us all stupider, IMHO. I'm honestly not sure if there's really any difference in how exploitative and...
not that I wouldn't luuuv for this to be true, but perez hilton quoting the national enquirer? yeah, I'm not buying the wedding gifts just yet. we'll have to keep our ears perked for some reliable confirmation tho! they'd make awesome film projects together, I'm sure (like when tracy & alice...
thanks for your thoughtful response erika, and I am 100% in agreement w/ you about the importance of disagreement and open debate in Judaism-- I would've walked away a long time ago if not for that. we should all have our own interpretations about the symbols, rituals, and prayers we engage with,...
d'oh! I fell prey to the accidental-new-comment-instead-of-reply-to-comment again! see my reply to your reply above.
she said, "it (the hamsa) really has very little to do with Judiasm." I take issue with this statement. I'm sorry you are troubled by my disagreement with this, but the fact is, it does trouble me when someone who is just beginning a conversion process makes such a broad statement about what is and...
I wasn't claiming ownership of the symbol, Moon. I was saying that there is a Jewish version of it, because Erika said in her post that it wasn't really a Jewish thing; so I tried to give more background about the Jewish version. I have no problem sharing symbols, and I agree w/ you in that I didn'...
dude, you know I totally support your spiritual journey (and everyone's right to follow their own path) toward Judaism-- but the way you talk about the hamsa is quite presumptuous, because you don't know about the Jewish version. Yes, there is an Arabic version, just as so many objects and...
no prob, bob. I'm usually at shabbat morning services, so come find me or ask around for me (jenny aisenberg, but the a is silent). I'll be out of town for the last week of august right up till rosh hashanna, but other than that, I'm around! and, I mean, you can talk to other people at kolot too ;p...
moon, you cannot make me choose between buffy and xena. I refuse to see them in competition with each other. if they met in real life, they would probably try to kill each other for a hot second, but when they realized they were A) equally matched, B) on the same side (fightin' evil!), and C)...
dude, when are you gonna come check out kolot chayeinu?! I would never presume to say that it's absolutely the best place for you to rock your conversion, but...I have strong gut feelings that you'd love it. we've had this convo a couple times already, if you recall-- I run the 20's and 30's group...
well done constance, well done ACLU, well done...bear atwood. I know, I know, it's not important...but it's still hilarious. I'm getting a pretty vivid visual of this dude in all his hairy, beary glory! ;p
...I don't even care about soccer. or any sport. at all. but I fucking love this paul fellow. octopuses in general are pretty friggin awesome (so says the oatmeal!): http://theoatmeal.com/story/octopus
WIN
friggin' awesome, ladies. way to keep my work day interesting
dude, you were like having yourself a little improv game at the end there, when he was trying to make an example out of how to talk to a lady w/ you...soooo freaking funny!!! but general awesomeness aside, I really appreciated what he said about going to buy the book from your local queer bookstore...
kel, I am 100% with you as usual. it's just like we were talking about w/ that "what if rosie the riveter were a working class gay environmentalist" piece-- we lefties should be organizing ourselves around shared values, not identity politics. and, I mean, I think that many of us do! at least in...
thank goodness you found a respectable belt for your white house ensemble, grace (and of COURSE you found it at dupont circle...) maybe you'll catch michelle's eye!
nice recap of the year in youth pride, jules. glad to see the combination of nerd camp pox and japanese iron chef hasn't left you completely delirious ;p
