and it has started to snow….
the previous 2 posts are from our dear friend Rachel in LA. She blogged a test kitchen ShamWow experiment… so we are rebloging these previous posts of hers for you as a follow up. Thanks Rachel!
This is the ULTIMATE test of Male Bonding….red cups and hot tubs. Mara thinks pretty much everything is wrong with this show, I think it is great. I wish I was on it. I totally could win this reality TV show. It is going to be a good season.
infomercials make the year go round
I have never seen so many infomercials in my entire life! Mara has been keeping a House marathon on the tv while we have been working. While I like House I am overwhelmed by influx of infomercials for all these special products that Billy Mays seems to be single handed-ly spearheading and for no real reason but I feel like I not only cannot live without and can’t stop laughing at the utter...
I did not even see Mara today. She is locked up working on her syllabus for next semester. She txted me earlier saying she had a break though and solved a major scheduling dilemma. So I can only assume that is good news. Last night she invited me to tag along for an international feast. We were having Moroccan food with friends of friends of hers visiting. Moroccan food with Greeks & Swedes,...
Mitzvah Tank spotted on Flatbush & 5th.
HELP! It is official, we are addicted to House.
today: pick up bagels, cream cheese & milk. Mara needs to revise her syllabus and while she seems to be long on chopped liver and lox (her parents dropped off their leftovers with her before they departed for Maine on Christmas) but she does not have bagels or cream cheese or milk. classic.
Danny started a blog. He writes: Hey all, I found myself spotting a ton of gay oriented graffiti on advertisements in the subways recently. A lot of it is dumb humour, but a lot of it is slightly offensive. Anyways, I found myself photographing the really bad/funny ones and this slowly became a collection. Something about this homophobic graffiti is really interesting and I am posting the images...
UPDATE: Danny has been found.
we are sending out an APB for Danny. Where are...
Sedaris and Crumpet the Elf: A Holiday Tradition →
This is a Holiday favorite and classic story told by David Sedaris on NPR’s Morning Edition in 1992.
ABC Eyewitness News is ‘Tracking Santa’ on their accuweather forcast. What does that even really mean? Apparently Santa and his sleigh have recently been spotted near Bambari. Maybe I missed something… anyone?
after a delicious dinner with Mara’s BBF Swedes last night. Today I am helping Mara prepare for our Chinese Take-Out Feast. This is, as I might have mentioned earlier, the one tradition Mara is proud to not only make better but take over. So we are cleaning up her apartment as her dining room table has morphed into a desk over the past 2 weeks and Mara keeps mumbling that she is worried that...
Today we are cleaning up Mara’s apartment. Mara’s is hosting Christmas Eve dinner. It is a family tradition she has embraced with open arms. I can’t tell you how happy I am to get in on this one this year. It involves ordering massive amounts of chinese take out.
Great News! I got this from Mara earlier this morning! It is not snowing yet but it isn’t supposed to start till 10 or 11am. happy snow! From: Mara Sprafkin Sent: Friday, December 19, 2008 7:12 AM To: Paul Handler Subject: snow day Paul, f.y.i.: Sam & Jared got engaged last night! Due to today’s impending snow storm, I am declaring it a snow day here at headquarters. Enjoy the...
we got side-swiped this morning with some unexpected complications. well, to clarify, Mara got side-swiped this morning with some unexpected complications. I only had to deal with her rath as I continue to help pull things together. Not to worry for those of you very kind and caring people who read my blog, we are all fine. No one is hurt or injured and nothing is broken. There seems to be some...
since returning home from LA Mara seems to have misplaced 2 of her netflix DVDs. One Mara watched in the airport before boarding plane while we were delayed and is pretty sure she put it with the other missing one. Both are no place to be found. She is having me look high and low and we can’t quite figure what happened. This sucks. I have run out of places to look.

Let it snow
We turned on Pandora and are listening to Christmas music and I just looked out the window and it is snowing! Such a cheerful morning in Mara’s studio. These might be the largest snowflakes I have ever seen. Mara is taking me along with her on a full afternoon of performance art today. First the Met for a Saloon organized by Georgia Sagri and then to the Closing Reception of the Clifford...
today I am providing moral support while Mara tackles the kitchen clean-up that she could not bare to deal with yesterday. Also Whitney is coming to the city for a few days for job interviews and such and Mara is anxiously anticipating her arrival! In the meantime there is a triple header of TLC that Mara THANKFULLY DVRd last night while we were at the Brooklyn Review Reading. So we are watching...
oh geeze…Mara’s college friends were in town last night so she threw a party. We have not been back for even 24 hours and she’s throwing a party. guess who’s gonna have to clean this mess up? This guy.
I am waiting for one of the paramedics to rip off his face and reveal that he is ashton kutcher.
Make that 2 medical emergencies. First a lady up front now a man in the back. We got enough paramedics on this plane for I don’t know what!
and we have gone no where. We pulled away and were on runway when we had to taxi back to the gate for a medical emergency of sorts.
The Burbank (also known as the Bob Hope) airport is always full of C and D list celebs. These are the people that are familiar looking and you know must be ‘famous’ but have no idea what their name is or what movie slash TV show slash band they were or are in. There is a whole handful of those folks here waiting for our delayed flight.
3 hours to kill in the airport. Holla atchya boy!
