Some days...

Some days you just need a call from your best friends. They aren't the happiest days, and yet they are some of the best. They make you laugh, they make you think, and most of all they don't let you take yourself too seriously.
We all need someone like this. We need the friend who has your back unconditionally. Who knows all your secrets. Who would sit next to you in jail and say, "Dang, that was fun!" Who tells you when the dress looks stupid, or when the hair-do is fabulous.

In my latest manuscript, my main character has two of those friends. One is a co-worker, the other has been her friend for years. Neither is afraid to tell it to her like it is, and call her on all her, um, stuff.

NY C is one of mine, and I can't wait to see her in the next few months. Who's yours?

I was funnier five years ago...

I've been reading through some old blog posts lately, and realized something very important. I was a lot funnier five years ago. I'm not sure why, exactly. I can honestly say I'm very happy with my life these days. Maybe I'm under more stress? Maybe I just have a lot on my plate? Maybe facebook posts have killed my blog? Who knows.
But in honor of the blog the way it used to be, I thought I'd share a couple random thoughts I've had in the last couple of days:
-It doesn't seem to matter what time of year you're driving. Bugs go kamikaze any time of year. It was so bad recently that I could barely see through my windshield. What I did see appeared to be thousands of hail-sized bugs aiming straight for me on a suicide path.
-Wedding registries are weird. They are the opportunity to ask for things from people you'd never have the guts to ask for in person. I'd never ask anyone to get me some of this stuff for my birthday, but apparently because I'm getting married, it's okay?

So it's your turn now, what's your random thought for the week?

It's not a wedding unless...

According to books I've read, and my family, it's not a Jewish wedding without lots of music and dancing.
Now, according to the newest viral video, it's not a wedding without Jewish (themed) music. Feel free to discuss amongst yourselves...
