These two people are some old once-or-twice removed cousins of mine. They are brother and sister. They were very weird, so I'm told. Does this look like an appropriate pose between siblings, or am I the weird one for thinking it's weird?
2. My Birthday Cake
My birthday cake was rich chocolate mousse with dark chocolate flowers all round its top. I bought it and even had them write "Happy Birthday Leah" on top. Then we brought it home and immediately cut it up. I couldn't stop eating it today, and it's nearly demolished. I feel a great deal of remorse.
3. I've Lost My Coffee Mojo
I'm a coffee snob. I need it strong and tasty, or not at all. I scorn and actually revile people who try to serve me weak coffee, whether it's the guy at the breakfast cart outside Hedgie's school, or my mother. Last week I had lunch with a dear old friend. After lunch, she offered us tea, saying "I don't know how to make coffee." I think she put a voodoo conjuration or malediction on me, because ever since then I can't make a good pot of coffee. How am I going to get my mojo back?
My cleaning lady brought me four red roses for my birthday. For some reason, I felt a need to hide the dozen red roses Sarge had gotten me. Why? I didn't want her to feel redundant. I guess.
5. Doctor Morbius: Is He My New Severus Snape?
Well, is he?

7. The Gaza Problem: Should I Say What I Think?
No. Absolutely not. I don't want to hear any comments on this topic. For a Jew to post on this, it's like posting a photo of yourself and asking readers to tell you whether or not you look fat.
8. "Milk" the movie
A post specifically for bitching: I hate the very idea of this movie. There's a wonderful documentary on Milk, and when they make a movie like this with an actor, people tend to get confused and superimpose the real guy on the crappy actor, elevating the actor to a status way above his actual existence, and further emphasizing our loathsome Hollywood worship problem. Milk was worthwhile; Sean Penn is worthless.
So...which is the worst of these none-too-appealing topics?...No don't answer that...
