What am I gonna wear?

In only a matter of time, I will be exercising my birthright. Not the right to return--I intend to return to New York after a ten-day "return" to Israel. Going through the winter packing list, it occurs to me that I do not own several of the items listed. Long skirts pose a problem, as do bathing suits, which I suppose means I can't claim a religious opposition to going swimming.

In also-important news, I'm just about done, need to physically hand one more paper in after reading it over once more, sometime in the next month, and am thus on a television binge this evening. John Cleese is now on "Will and Grace," and just said, "Thank you, Manuel," to Rosario, an inside joke for those who enjoy both "Fawlty Towers" and "Will and Grace," for those whose drug of choice is television. That, and my classmates are moving into Film Forum this vacation, which just showed "Jules et Jim" and is about to start showing Woody Allen movies like there's no tomorrow. If all goes according to plan, I will get to see the "Dissent and Commentary merged and formed Dysentary" joke on the big screen.

Once sufficient time has been spent in front of sitcoms I've already seen and movie's I've already seen, but not quite as many times, more substantive blogging just might begin.

Congrats on being finished and have a great (and safe) trip!

Phoebe, have so much fun on your birthright trip! You reminded me that when I went, we did a half-water half-land hike in Galilee. At the big waterfall we encountered a group of religious girls hiking too. They proceded to swim in the waterfall, long skirts and all.

Your long skirt is probably for modesty when you visit the Wall.

Sorry that I don't know you, which makes it weird that I'm commenting on your post, but I just Googled the "Thank You Manuel" comment to see if anyone else in this world ever caught that. Hence, your post. I'm glad to know that there's someone else in this world that has seen both "Farty Towels" and Will & Grace.
