1) My Blog is going to have a new name tomorrow! Changing the name is a technical drag and will be annoying for a quick minute as people adjust but I’m very happy about the change. Please allow me to officially invite you to the re-launch of my newly re-named Singles Blog “Keeping the Faith”. I know it’s a pain to change links and change routines so I can’t thank you enough for reading and being supportive of my writing and my journey. I am going to keep the faith that you come with me to Keep the Faith. You will be able to locate the blog at jewishjournal.com, everyjew.com, and jewishjournal.com/keepingthefaith beginning tomorrow.
2) If you heard a whooping and a hollering last night around 9:50 it was me. I was watching More to Love, Tuesday nights on FOX at 9 pm, when I heard something unbelievable. They actually said, OUT LOUD, that Tali is Jewish and Luke has lots to think about if he is going to marry her. I think it’s so important that the dialogue is happening and I’m so excited for the finale next week. It is going to be great. I get frustrated when shows, both scripted and reality, dance around the issue of people being Jewish. I’m not sure why it bugs me so much but it does. I have been blogging to the creator, Mr. Mike Fleiss, about this for weeks because all they talked about was how they were “culturally different” and religion was never specifically mentioned so when I saw the preview for next week I was thrilled to see it was being tackled head on.
Now, while I think marriage is hard for a young couple who want kids and are of different faiths, they are a great couple. Melissa is a dimwit and playing a game and has weird views on taking care of kids while Tali is adorable and loves him and I hope she is not disappointed in the end. To my darling Mike Fleiss, I am no longer breaking up with you. In fact, to be clear, I love you. Note to self: when Mike and I have lunch next week (Mike I’m free for lunch next week. Call me.) I need to give him a hug and say bravo.
3) My son starts 8th grade today. He goes to a middle school which has grades 6/7/8 so this year he and his friends will be Kings and they will have a glorious year of being the big shots as members of the graduating class. Next year they will face a whole new reality when they are on the bottom of the totem pole as high school freshmen. I can hardly believe that my baby is now only one year away from high school and two years away from borrowing the car! I could not possibly love him more or be more proud. He is a wonderful child, son, student and human being. I wish him and his buddies well on this very special day.
