Here we are, at Sarah Lawrence Admissions Office waiting room, on time for info session, which begins in 24 minutes. They have barely opened up the office and we are the only ones here other than the office opener! I think I have decided to drive to Barnard next instead of taking the train from […]

So, ok, it was a shiny black Toyota. But it just took away my old man. . . to La Guardia, on to Pittsburgh. We will not see him again till Friday morning, in Boston, after all of Mollie’s interviews are over. and I already miss him somch, and it has been a mere three […]

Day 3 of vac! Now at Bryn Mawr, sitting in admissions office waiting for Mollie’s interview. We have been at an info session already and a proloooonged tour, led by a Bryn Mawr senior who is from Nigeria, and whose accent I found quite charming at beginning of tour and which drove me unutterably insane […]

It is hard to believe that this is already the second day of vac! We drove to Philly yesterday. For some reason, during my portion of the drive, I was exceedingly sleepy and could hardly keep my eyes open, even while listening to Dan Savage beautifully, in the way only Dan can, narrate his “American […]

The counting fruit thing is not working out so well. Let’s see. . . Friday was fine, yesterday not great and today . . . I am sequestering myself upstairs, chewing gum, till cb’s students arrive for dinner in about forty minutes. That way, I will not graze. I got so much fruit the other […]

Cancer was the first thing that came to mind – of course – when Catja began to sneeze about 4 days ago. She had sneezed once or twice earlier in the day, and there had been a hairball, and loss of appetite, as in not begging for food constantly, and not even finishing her daily […]

Microbes are being blamed for everything these days, even obesity. Which naturally makes me wonder: is my microbiome normal? The guts of many with obesity are cursed with extremely aberrant mocrobiota. By now the reader is well aware after being bashed on head with it on innumerable occasions, that i do not belong and never […]

If you do not have an account with a store, they want you to sign up so they give you these big sale incentives, like the one at Nordstrom’s yesterday. I usually do not like credit cards because you get millions of bills every month instead of just one and you have to keep track […]

Began day early because i knew it would be another chock full day. I have been wondering for the millionth time in my life why it is that i constantly think about food and about eating it and it is time to eat yet. Although I love life and most things about my own life, […]

The talk is over, Thank aGOD. Was anxious about it for past few weeks, but once I began the talk, i stopped being nervous and made some jokes, some a bit too sardonic, but did get yots of yaffs. Audience probably about 30 residents and med students, some new residents just starting a few weeks […]
