John Scalzi in Buttercream Frosting

Posted by Simcha 2:57 AM, under | No comments

I'm really glad that Twitter has started sending me emails with highlights from the week because otherwise I might have missed out on this...



And here's the video explaining how exactly John Scalzi came to be covered in buttercream frosting by a group of roller derby woman on Neil Gaiman's lawn (man, this makes my life seems so dull)




And speaking of John Scalzi, today I received Old Man's War in the mail, which I ordered right after finishing Redshirts. It was such an enjoyable book that I'm eager to try out more of his stuff.  So I know what I'm going to be doing this weekend (unfortunately neither Neil Gaiman nor buttercream frosting will be involved).

Shanah Tovah- Happy New Year!

Posted by Simcha 10:59 AM, under | 1 comment



Wishing all of you a happy, healthy and sweet new year. (even if you're not Jewish ;) )

Apparently this image, of a bored looking angel,  is from a vintage Rosh Hashanah card. It seemed appropriate for the blog somehow. 

And here's a Rosha Hashana video that never fails to crack me up, of Jewish yeshiva boys break dancing.

Enjoy and have a good one!
