I asked, "If you were stuck with no electricity for two days one summer, how would you get your daily intake of ice cream?"
Ian said... "Simple! Merely take a hike to the nearest dairy farm, on the way stopping off to get some ice from a deli with a generator. Upon arrival milk a cow into a jug. Allow the milk to settle and the cream to rise. Siphon it off and churn it into the ice vigorously (this step will take roughly half an hour). Add sugar, which will probably have to be stolen from the farmhouse, and any other flavors you can get your paws on (look hard, farmers keep lots of good ingredients in their houses). Then sit back, relax and enjoy your now melted delicacy!"
Mark said... "I'd eat dina. She eats so much ice cream on a regular basis that she has turned into 99% ice cream, so eating her is just like eating a klondike bar."
Is this Doni?... "I would go to the local walmart (if I were a hick) or shopright (if I were a classier hick) and buy ice and milk (unless I had just recently milked the cow...then it would only be ice). Then I would take out a summer cookbook and churn (is that the right word?) my own ice-cream. Of course I would have to get cookies (chocolate only) to crush and add to the ice cream :). To tell you the truth, I would really go to pathmark or 7-11, buy a carton everyday and eat the whole thing before it melts. Wasting ice-cream is like a crime or something."
Nukes said... "There's got to be a prayer for ice cream... "
There were more responses (duh), but I liked those best. And Steve, if yours were a tad less inappropriate, I woulda posted it too. :)

So, Yeah...I've Got Nothing

I am going to list some of the weird things that have happened these past few days:

A girl in my class yelled at me for doodling in o's and e's. I think she's just jealous because I can color in the lines better than she can...but I almost cried.

I left the cleaners things at the cleaners.

We had no electricity from Wednesday afternoon until Friday morning.

Well...alright, so the list isn't all that long, but those are only some. Sometimes after weird weeks, I get a line in my head that I can't shake. It goes like this, In the middle of the night Miss Clavel turned on her light and said, "something is not right!" Madeleine is the best.

Just So You Know...

I went on a shidduch* date recently. The guy, while interesting, was totally not for me. My mother just told me this morning that she spoke to the shadchan* who told her that when he called, he let her know that he didn't think I was for him and he got the sense that I felt the same way. My mother, of course, told me that I have to be a little more polite. So now I pose the question: How poised would you be if the first time you met someone they were to tell you that your Zeide* was their mohel*? Seriously! I can smile like a doofus for anyone, I can make pleasant conversation if I try, but hold my own when faced with that? I told my mother that he said that and equated it to a, "I was in staying at your mother's house the first time I got my period!" But I really was polite...

***My Glossary of Jewish Terms***
shidduch: when used as an adj., shidduch date means a date with a stranger someone set you up with
shadchun: matchmaker (usage note: this does not only apply to professional matchmakers, but can even be applied to a friend who set you up with someone)
Zeide: Grandfather in Yiddish
mohel: a person who performs circumcisions

Pictures from DC

On the first day of the conference, Steve made a list of "Quotes." Here they are (although I warn you that some are real and some are fabricated, so read with caution):
"Why is there no mechitza between us? This conference is very anti-Semitic." -Steve
"Oh, I'm so immature...I love Oral Roberts!" -Dina
"Don't make me lick you!" -Steve
"How would you like it if I tied you down and spit in your mouth?" -Dina
"Mmm...warm spittle!" -Dina
"That was uplifting. Wanna f&c*?" -Some random guy to some random girl after a speech
"You're a monkey. A fat monkey." -Steve

And now I have some pictures that are arranged, for your convenience, in a totally random order. AND they're mostly from the last night we were we all look tired and washed out. My apologies. :)

The typical but still purty cool hookah picture. This is from the last night there.
Say hi to Steve who's showing off his tongue's dexterity.
Steve and one of his roommates...they look friendly and nice.
Steve and one of his roommates...Steve looks like a chipmunk. I love this picture. :)
Tzips came to visit me because she's interning in DC this summer. The girl on the right is Alexis. Alexis goes to Tulane. We met her because Steve was asking all the Tulane people, "Do you know the Kosher Eucharist?" Most of them gave him funny looks. But not Alexis! She knows Michael and thought it was funny that we do, too! So here we are...
I just think this picture's hot.
This is Zach. Zach is friends with Alexis because he goes to Tulane as well. He came over to talk to Alexis while Tzippy and I were talking to her and Tzippy gave him a compliment (on his accent, perhaps?) and his response was, "flattery gets you everywhere." So I took a look at his beard and figured, "why the spindleshanks not?" And so I told him that I love beards and that he can join our Bring Beards Back campaign and be our Louisiana rep. Well, just being a rep wasn't good enough and he wanted to be our mascot.
Meet our new mascot:

Steve, what is this?

Zach's a pimp and we all look happy.

Here's one of my favorite pictures because it's just so bad. :)

Steve took this one. Maybe he took it to remember how unflavorful the food was.

I waited about an hour for my parents to pick me up from Newark, so I took some boring pictures of nothingnesses.

All done.

G'bye Till Tuesday

My flight to DC leaves at 6:10 tomorrow morning and then it's all Israel and politics all day.

What I look forward to:
1. Making fun of all the people just there to hook up with members of the opposite sex.
2. Meeting those smart, damn hot Jewish guys in suits (added points) who can debate me into the ground.
3. Spending three days with Steve.

What I don't look forward to:
1. Listening to politicians pat themselves on the back for days.
2. Guys I'm not interested in hitting on me. (C'mon, it always works like that.)
3. DC heat.

I know it'll be hard to go a few days without the challenge of getting into the QOTD annals present, but I'm sure you'll all carry on fine. Plus, I'm bringing a camera. Oooh, fun!

Two-hundred something hot Jewish guys...I'm coming.

"I love it that the most amount of Jews all week on my buddylist are right before Shabbos...They want to get the last amount of electricity before it stops."

I Saw a Mother Deer and Two Bambies 10 Feet Away from My Kitchen

My mother just called me and my brother into the kitchen so that we could see this gorgeous deer. She was just standing right outside the kitchen doors staring in at us.

Last night, I spoke to someone over the phone who told me that he hates where I live.

"It's in the middle of nowhere--it's not close to anything," the Long Island boy argued.

I live forty minutes north of the city. If you want to go anywhere--the city, more inland, to Jersey, Connecticut, South, North, West, East--I'm central. But I guess to those who live on the island, there's never any need to stretch past the city. All I know is that I'd never trade living next door to a woods (okay, so my house is the last on a dead end) for the convenience of public transportation. It just doesn't equal up for me.

The Man and The Bike

Going home today, on our way up York, Miryam and I drove past a man riding a bike. This bike, though, was no ordinary bike. This was the absolute most pimped-out bike either of us had ever seen. At first glance it looked like a motorcycle. Upon closer study, however, it could be observed that this was a regular peddle-bike. However the seat was an actual chair--set low. There were packages attached to either side of the back wheel and above it, and a front piece covering the area above the front wheel. And he had a radio playing.
We only caught a fleeting picture of him. But then, any ordinary picture would not do his creativity justice.

photo credits: Miryam (I was driving...on the FDR.)

The Raging Bull is Randy!

For those of you who don't know a thing about Betas, here's an interesting tidbit: the males make nests of sticky bubbles for the females to lay their eggs in. When the males are horny, they blow lots and lots of sticky bubbles in hopes that the females see how well they can provide for young'uns and choose them to procreate with.
I have three male Betas (in their own bowls, of course) and when they're horny I know about it because they have tons of bubbles. Well, either our little Raging Bull has more testosterone (in a fish?) than the rest, or he is seriously, seriously randy because I have never seen any of my Betas with this much bubble!

(I know this was terribly corny, but I couldn't help it.)

Quotes of the Day

We're Pretending We're in Eighth Grade Again
"Do you have any enemies?"

Ever the Optimist
"I really like the game minesweeper. I feel like my computer's life depends on my finding all the mines."

Daisy Miller

"That'll be $48.75."
I looked across the counter at the too-thin clerk and passed my credit card into his bony hand. Just six books for only one class. I silently thanked God that the response the man downstairs had to my request, "and if you have any in hardcover, I'd like that please," had been a simple, "we don't."
The clerk put my receipt into a green Shakespeare & Co. bag along with my purchase, and handed it to me saying, "next in line, please!"
I took my bag and ran outside. Bookstores make me high sometimes. I once spent close to two hours in Shakespeare trying to figure out how they had the nerve to put Cooking the Carb-Free Way! in the same corner as Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I'm pretty sure they went through an entire Coldplay album while I was in there that time.
Later today, I went into the bookstore again to purchase books for my second class. I was in and out of there as quickly as I was the first time. Again they had no hardcovers of the books I needed, and again it cost me 40-something dollars.
For tomorrow, I have to read Henry James' Daisy Miller and the first act of The Merchant of Venice. Wish me luck.


I couldn't help myself...

Quote of the Day

"Let's play Ring-Around-the-Rosie!"

But Really I Want to Have a Baby

Friday night, I was sitting outside my cousins' house holding baby Yehuda on my stomach/chest. He was sleeping and I was pretending that I had a baby. My father and brother started up the driveway with my uncle after shul and loud enough for me to hear, my father says to my uncle, "Dina wants to have a baby. We have to be careful who she hangs out with because one day she might come home with a baby."

If you've never had to meet my father, allow me to explain. Most of my weirdness--I get from him, so you can only imagine...

But still, what he said was TOTALLY uncalled for. I mean, if I were ever to even consider coming home pregnant, they'd know because I'd start hanging out with uber-tall guys with serious brains, curly, dark hair and twins in their genes. So there!

Quote of the Day

Upon Finding Out His Soulmate's Married
"hmmmmmm... I wonder if I can marry into their marriage. It's much easier than finding my own."

You Are Deb

I got an e-mail from H. Randall Agadi III tonight titled, "that's u, goober!" It contained just this:

However, I'd like to state for the record that I am not Deb. I'm not even Deb-like. So like all those other rumors Randy's started about me, this one too is untrue.'s a little update (even thought I doubt anyone's seen this yet because I just posted it about five minutes ago): I just took this quiz and as it turns out...I AM Deb. I think my "peanut butter sandwich" answer gave it away.
Only, they tell me, "You are Deb and you could drink whole milk if you wanted." I can't believe Randy left that out of his e-mail. I know his favorite line in the whole movie is, "Like...numchuck skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills. Girls like guys with skills!" but the greatest line was really, "I see you're drinking 1%. Is that because you think you're fat? Because you're not. You could be drinking whole milk if you wanted."

Well, Fine...So My English is a Bit Funny
"A shower about now. Sounds like the name of an album from a rock group who takes itself too seriously."


All I have to say is that someone called me a foodie today. Me--a foodie! I almost passed out from happiness (and I think he was kidding around anyway). The day will come, my friend, when that adjective will be aptly used to describe me.

Quote of the Day

Even My Coptic Christian Friend Can't Escape Our Trends
"I think he just wants some O-girl ass. See! This is what happens when I read your blogs!"

Ew, Ew, and Ew Again

Well! There was a dead bird on my lawn.

I went upstairs to wash myself up and get dressed. I came back down and went back to my work at the kitchen table (there was a pincher bug on my chair and those freak the everything out of me, so I had to come inside). Of course, I needed a little distraction, so I looked to my left and out the doors of my kitchen to see scattered feathers and grossness all over the lawn. As soon as I'm done crying and throwing up, I am going to exact revenge on the stupid lawn-mower man who desecrated the body. I know he saw the bird because I was sitting here when he drove past it the first time on his mower thing and he looked down to take a look at it.

I hate when people are destructive. Really, the bird was dead already--did this guy really need to mutilate it?

Just Around the Corner from School...

I didn't have my camera with me when I came eye to eye with a deer about 30 or so feet away from me this morning, but I did have it with me in the city!

I saw these chimneys and couldn't resist. Mary Poppins, anyone?

And these are... Tom, Dick, Harry, and Little Bo Peep. Welcome to New York.

Ellipses Are In

I just wrote a post about reading my new book for Punks, and Steve goes and buries it under his post two second later. As the only person I know to use "78 semi-colons in one paper," Steve did not surprise me with the number of ellipses in his newest post. I give Steve grammatical assistance sometimes with his posts on Punks, but this time I wish I had counted the number of ellipses I took out before I had taken them out because about halfway or so through the post, I had to stop.
I asked him if periods scare him, since he tends to shy away from them and use ellipses where periods would do just fine, and he responded, "I love ellipses. They are so dotty...And besides, periods are so small I want people to know I'm done with that sentence, so I kinda beat it into them."
I won't argue with that.

In Response to My Claims that the "Exorbitant" Credit Card Bill She Was Reading Was All for Food and Clothes

"That's my shomer kiss for you. Coincidentally, that is also my kiss of death. I need to work some differentiation out."

In Dreams Begins Confusion

I had a really bizarre dream last night. I can't remember most of it, but the parts I do remember are so weird.

There was this guy and his baby and like five year-old hanging out in my basement because they were homeless. What? Yeah. But really they weren't homeless, so they were clean, they were just homeless for the night. But they were really homeless, and I told them that they had to look nicer, so I was gonna give the baby a haircut because he had these long, long curls all the way down his back (he was like 2 or so). And his hair was blond. So I went away to find scissors to use, and I couldn't find the nail scissors. Then I come back and I have a scissor but it wasn't the one I wanted and a towel to put on my lap and the floor to catch his hair, and there was some old man there yelling at the homeless man that he had to go find a job and go home. The homeless man didn't know what to do (by the way, he and the five year old also had long hair and were gonna get haircuts from me). So then I said to the other man, "oh, they have a place to live and he even has a job," cause I was afraid he'd call the cops on this guy and get him arrested. Then he went away I think and I was gonna give the baby a haircut, but he was protesting. I can't remember the filler details or the other things that went down, but it was weird. I mean, give a baby a haircut? Where am I from, I wonder sometimes.

And question: "in dreams (plural) begin" or "begins confusion (singular)"--which one is it? Ah!

O-Girls are Just Hotter

My beeeeeeeeeest friend from second through fifth grade just got married tonight. I went through a bajillion outfits from my closet, my mother's, and sister's until we found something good to wear. This is how sexy the outfits I didn't wear made my bed look:

And now, proof that O-girls really are the hottest breed of girls (even though I look pretty boyish in this shot):

Here's a pic of just me and Steve's looooooove, Chaya, with some kind of sexy light thing going on in the background:

What the...?
"You know everytime I see a grammar error the first thing that pops in my head is an image of you pulling your hair and licking an ice cream cone."

I Can't Even Count How Many Times

Let's talk about my Shabbos. Miryam and I stayed at Chaya in Brooklyn and for the umpteenth time in this short little weekend, I will repeat that I love Chaya's mother. She made vegetable soup instead of chicken for me and a billion different kugels and salads.

Friday night, as we were about to go wash, we heard knocking at the front door. Chaya's mother went to answer it and, lo and behold, it was Doni and Prince! Mir and I told them to walk over Friday night, but they finished their meal so fast that they got to us before we even started.

Aside from the delicious food, the meal was just Chaya's Israeli mother and Doni having this conversation repeatedly:
"Doni, you would like some salad?"
"Doni, you would like potato kugel--it's very good?"
"The fish is good. Doni, want to have?"
It was the absolute most ridiculously funny thing I've seen since that time my dad said, "Doni, why don't you have a catch with Joshy?" And he said, "Mmmm...Okay."

Saturday night we did the movie/hookah/beer thing (that means some movied, some hookahed, some beered, some did more than one) at Doni's house with Doni, Shmends, and their friend Aroni. Steve was invited but he never came.

Quotes of the Day

You Know You're Friends When Someone Can Actually Say This...
"Your dorkitude is awesome."

Oh, How Very Nostalgic Four Words Can Make Me
"Come over and play."
-My 20-something year-old friend


There are some people who bruise so easily that they'll wake up in the morning after a peaceful sleep and find random black and blue marks on their bodies. Admittedly, sometimes that happens to me. I bruise so easily, though, that I could just take a step and get a bruise on my arm. Why this is, I don't know. But because of it, I have three hickeys now that aren't even hickeys. There are three little itchy bumps on my torso and thighs. If they are, as I suspect, bug bites, then bug bites are far itchier than mosquito bites. I've scratched them so much that I have hickey-wannabes there.

While showering for Shabbat, I couldn't help but think about how sometimes in our lives, things happen and we don't think twice about them. But then we grow up, look back, and realize that because of those seemingly insignificant episodes, we are who we are.

One day, when I was very little, I got ready to take a bath and discovered tons of purple dots on my thighs. I thought it was quite funny, but my mom was freaked out. She took me to the dermatologist and we were told that I must've put too much pressure on my thighs and made myself bruise. We figured it was because I used to go around the corner to Orchard Hills Park almost everyday after school and play paddle ball. (Mir did you and I ever play a game together?) While walking there and walking home, I used to just let the paddle swing back and forth against my legs. I'm pretty sure my mother made some form of a rule that I could only go if I held the paddle nicely against my side or cradled in my arms.

I didn't realize it at the time, but it must've been then, I think, that I was destined to be a dork.

Vince and Dina Sitting in a Tree...

If Vince Vaughn were Jewish and a twin (or had twin genes), he and I would be married by now. But, alas, this is not so. Until that day, though, I will always have this. Thanks to Esther for finding this site, because I have never been closer to living in la-la land than now.

If you wanna make your own, click here!

Aaaaand, I don't know who these guys are, but they're linked to on the site and they're seriously funny.

Ian's Milkshake

I've known about Ian's famous Milkshake video for months. I think we all have. But just tonight, for the first time ever, I watched it. Alls I have to say is that I'm still passed out from laughter. I don't know how to upload videos, so you'll have to go here (and then click on the right where it says Ian Milkshake) to watch it.

For those of you who don't know Ian, he's our blond, 6'5" goy who knows more about all things Jewish than anyone but Helen (although I'm pretty sure he knows more Yiddish than she does). And you get to watch him shake what he's got.

Quote of the Day

In Defense of the Manual Pencil Sharpener
"Finger exercises. Two words. Uh...two words: finger exercises."

I Like Food

When I was sixteen, my friend Chaya and I were obsessed with taking online quizzes and emailing our results to each other. I had taken every quiz on emode (now called tickle) and so had she. Basically, we both learned that we were cold-hearted, sex-obsessed kids who'd rather break someone's heart in an email and hook up with strangers than find true love. But then, we were sixteen.
I have too much free time on my hands (y'know, when I should be studying math), so I've found myself back on emode taking ridiculous quizzes that are now just about advertisements. Read that, no, still doesn't make sense. Anyway, I was taking a quiz just now to find out how sinful I am (turns out I'm below average), and I just thought question number 21 was great.

21. If I had to choose, I'd rather spend the majority of my free time:
a. Thinking about what I could eat
b. Fantasizing about bigger and better possessions
c. Obsessing about how I was wronged

Obviously, I'm an a kinda person.

Miryam and I were stalked by a van of cops today. The driver had some sort of crush on us and subsequently didn't want to lose sight of us.

I just wrote a post about it, but it's funnier when you just hear the bottom line. So there it is.

It Is Quite Simple

There are some guys I know who complain that girls are unpredictable. So, allow me to explain. We women work like clocks. For about two weeks out of a month we're fine, for about one week we're easily irritated, and for the last week, we're pretty much okay unless megaly ticked. It's simple like that. But guys, guys are unpredictable. I have some friends who turn into the world's second biggest assholes when they're sexually frustrated and others who turn into just as big assholes the minute they're sexually fulfilled(?). That is all.

Ho-Hum Oh So Early!

Eliana and Julie and I went hiking this morning at about 9:30am. It was a blast. Pure blasty fun, it was. I could sit here telling you how hot we are (since we like brought sandwiches and all that) but I'll just post the pictures to prove it (but not the sandwiches)! :)

This is where we went:

Eliana says, "hi."

Julie says, "no talking in the library."

Oh, but Eliana's too smart for us

We're cool.

Eliana and Julie and they look so sweet!

Ooh la la!

It's a's a transcendent's Julie?

I don't know either, but it's funny. :)

Eliana and Julie are really pretty!

Haha! I look short!

We asked this random lady to take our picture:

How adorable, I ask, just how adorable?

Oh, There's Some Sort of Leak

Last night, Eliana, Julie, Miryam, and I watched Napolean Dynamite in my den. The three of them were on the couch and I sat on the floor. I don't remember why, but at some point I moved and discovered a humongous wet spot on my behind. Well, lo and behold, the mildewy smell I was smelling the whole time was coming from right near me (or under). I was actually sitting in a puddle of water that was leaking on my carpet the whole time. How the water got there or where it was coming from, I don't know.

Sometimes my slowness marvels me--other times I just take it in stride.

(Julie and Eliana were hiding under blankets when Mir and I came into the room. It took a while to find them.)
