I'm over here from Livejournal. Which I loved dearly, but with the whole unholy union between it and Facebook.... yeah.

I'm a Reform convert to Judaism, HOWEVER according to a LOT of people I'm more observant than I need to be. Its really not so much that I feel I have to be, rather it just feels natural to me to BE more observant. I converted Reform for 2 reasons. My husband is Reform (also a convert) AND I'm more comfortable with the Reform philosophy about women rabbis and homosexual marriage and such. We keep some form of Kosher at home- 2 sets of plates, but the kitchen isn't kashered to Orthodox standards. Yet. Someday it might be, who knows.

I am a stay at home mom. Which means I am in turn: a dairy cow, nurse, cook, seamstress, maid, laundress, shrink....

I love dinosaurs....

I was an English major in college and still am a promiscious reader. However, my grammar and spelling blow. I can proof-read my own stuff but can't explain why something is wrong. If you start talking about "participles" and "helping verbs" and I start looking like a deer in headlights. If you ask me to diagram a sentence, I will probably burst into tears.

Me and my little guy on a Friday night.

A dress I made, I'm 3 days pregnant in this photo... HEE!!

My poor husband has to put up with me and my Lucille Ball like cavorting and misadventures. Poor guy. But I love him!

I love to use $5 words. Some of my favorites include: excommunication, defenestration, tenacity, hematoma, and circumnavigation.

Some quotes I find amusing:

"Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for government, supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the massses not from some farcical aquatic ceremony" -MOnty python and the Holy Grail

"God the almighty and all knowing has misplaced a cup?" "apparently" - Spamalot

"Ah Hello, its nice to see you all here, Now as the more perceptive of you have realized, this is Hell. And I am the Devil, good evening. But you can call me Toby if you like. WE like to keep things informal here as well as infernal" - Rowan Atkinson.

"what in fact is an evil giraffe? how do they.... "I will eat all the leaves on this tree, I will eat more leaves than I should. And then other Giraffes may die. ah Ha ha ha! I am an evil herbivore " - Eddie Izzard

"I like the old fahioned flowers, violets are for me, have them made in diamonds by the man at Tiffany" -Eartha Kitt

"There are shops in Paris where nothing is for sale. No matter how hard you beg. I think people get lonely, their apartments get full and rather than rent a storage space, they rent a boutique. Tthen they sit in the middle of it, gloating over their fine taste" - David Sedaris, When You Are Engulfed in Flames.

"Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before. "
Mae West

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.
Groucho Marx

" Listen, you might want to pack a few of your things together before going to bed. The former Archbishop of Turkey will be coming tonight... and they might put some candy in your shoes, they might stuff you in a sack and take you to Spain, or they might just pretend to kick you. We don't know for sure, but we want you to be prepared. " - David Sedaris. Dress Your Family in Courderoy and Denim.

"I am an extraordinarily patient person, provided I get my own way in the end" - Margaret Thatcher

"But I want to tell all of my friends that i'm building a home for future bastards" -Judy Dench, Mrs Henderson Presents.
