We all knew that Judd Apatow was talented, but seriously, this is brilliant.  I imagine that years will go by and this will still be considered funny.  You don’t need to be a Jew to get it, all you need is a sense of humor.  Bravo to the American Jewish World Service organization for this classic.  Beyond going viral, will it help generate much needed money for your important cause?  I’m keeping the faith.

    This list of Jewish “words” was sent to me by a friend, who received it from her Dad.  I don’t know who came up with them, but they are hilarious so I thought I would share.  Whoever came up with these gets a round of applause from me.  Brilliant.

    I have been doing a little dating lately and it’s been good.  I am currently on Match.Com and am meeting some really lovely men.  I talk a lot about how interesting it is to date at age 44.  Today I’d like to focus on what it’s like to date in the body of a 44 year old real... read on

    My mother’s sister passed away yesterday.  She had been ill, and even though we knew we would lose her, she had hung on for so long we thought it was possible she would be okay.  My mother is one of eight children and my aunt Sarah was the youngest.

    I loved Sarah.  She was not... read on

    Last night I had dinner with my friend Rachel.  She is an ordinary girl who has led an extraordinary life, and I want to be just like her when I grow up.  She is brutally honest, yet kind.  She cuts to the chase and never lets me feel bad about myself.

    It’s great how getting... read on

  • Mel Gibson Is A Pig But He’s Not A Rapist

    I think Mel Gibson is a pig.  I think he probably hates Jews and he probably was abusive to his girlfriend.  I have not seen a movie of his in years and don’t imagine that I would see another one.  That said, I will go see Hangover 2 and I would have seen it with or without him in... read on

    I am heading back to Match.Com.  Chances are I will not meet my Beshert online.  I will keep trying, but my hopes are realistic.  That said, someone really great wrote me today on Match and I’m excited about the possibility of having a date with him.

    He sent me a note saying he... read on
