I just came back from my most-awesome Taglit-Israel Birthright trip with the LA Way kids by way of Israel Experts! Hooray! Before leaving I pondered hard, then harder, about extending my stay for 90 days. Then the answer came as to what day and why I would have to be back before 90 days: Behold! I am opening on the main stage at CSW Pride for the one-and-only Milkshake and Acapella queen herself, KELIS! Don’t get me wrong, I made sure to extend a little bit, with a lovely 6-day schlep over to London afterward to bring the miracle of Shabbat to my French Jew gay friend in London (yes, that will be blogged about later). But Hashem was loud and clear: “You, my little woman Jew, will sing in bedouins; party in Tel Aviv and listen to Rihanna rehearse outside your hotel balcony; you will hike Masada before the sun rises with the moon in the distance, and ride donkeys that you’ll name Unicorn… you will Dead Sea play and bring the miracle of Shabbat to London. But then, you must get no more than 48 hours downtime before you make the gays dance like it’s 5769! You are the chosen one. I have spoken.”
So, if you missed me at pride last year or the WEHO Dyke Marches last year and the year before, here’s your chance to see me, and then Kelis in 2010/5770!
