Oh, the innumerable variations on squash! Last night, cb roasted the hand squash, which, it turns out, has a total of ten prongs in sets of two, like two hands together, I guess, not the 8 Imentioned yesterday. Memory did not serve, it seems, and natch, I was too lazy to go downstairs to confirm, […]

A few minutes ago, I looked ahead to the coming week’s calendar and found it – and when I say “it,” I am referring, of course, to evenings and Thursdays — to be blissfully unscheduled. The past two weeks have been pretty much nonstop meetings, events, late nights, and work obligations of the being perpetually […]

Silly Yittoo Post

In previous posts, I have discussed finding myself, as a blogger, in a quandary about what should and should not be posted. One great thing about blog posts is that they emerge like thread from a spool, or maybe more like dental floss, in that each new posting pushes the older ones backward, into the […]

I am definitely not as young as I used to be, when I could stay up very late every day of the week and it wouldn’t faze me. As alluded to in previous posts, it was one of those hit the ground running weeks, which actually , for me, did not draw to an abrupt […]

Sometimes I wonder if it is worth it to go away, because whenever I get back from out of town, the accumulation of work hits me like a ton of brix. I have been drowning in the backlog all week, despite having been gone from the office for a total of only 3 business days. […]

Perception is everything. I am so glad I attended my reunion this time — it is with a sense of relief that I return home. The last of my demons has been faced down – I had such fear of getting a glimpse onto what I had previously viewed as one of the most painful […]

A Resounding Success!

Let me start by saying there will be not cruelty about my former classmates, because they were all at worst civil and at best pretty cool. The ones I will mention by name will be those I really liked seeing. These include: of course, Michael and Tom. Also, Marjorie, Jane, Cindy, Steve Jampol. I did […]

Stay tuned! Today is the day of the big 40th Ardsley Class of 1972 reunion dinner. Of all the events: informal, and, from what I understand, night-long (but I am sure sedate) gathering in Connecticut last night, high school tour and football game today, dinner tonight and picnic tomorrow, the dinner will be the only […]

Generalized Impatience

Patience is a virtue that I do not have. It is tied inextricably to my generalized anxiety and calls for industrial-strength I.V. Valium from time to time, which, of course, I do not ever take. Years ago, in college, my first psychiatrist, Bob Toborowsky, (who may no longer be living – I believe I heard […]

I am listening (cannot watch!) the debate and once again, it is the moderator who is absolutely no help whatsoever to Biden, who is lying lying lying and Mr. Arrogant Pipsqueak who doesn’t know his ass from his elbow. I am absolutely churning with frustration and anxiety. I think Biden is doing much better than […]
