I am at work and——

Posted on Oct 20, 2009 at 4:49 pm

I’m not working.I haven’t actually worked since we got back.  I sit in my very clean, very sterile office and surf the web. Watch youtube clips.  Giggle over past blog posts.  I’ve seen exactly one patient today.  I know I’m not supposed to love this schedule but I really really do. Heck, I’m still being […]

eating humble pie

I have finally finished the first revision. Anyone who has been following this rather lengthy process already knows that this is actually something like the fourth revision, but it is the first version without Sherlock Holmes.  Hyperion wanted S.H. taken out of the novel, partly for copyright reasons (long, long story- and not particularly interesting) and […]

The Tooth Fairy’s Response

Posted on Sep 9, 2009 at 2:33 pm

Apparently she is a bit verbose. Dear Talia,   I am so happy you live in Modiin now! My husband and I just came on fairy Aliyah on the Fairy B’ Faya flight last week. We came on the wings of an eagle. You humans have to use large metal machines, you poor things, but […]

Blog break

Posted on Sep 6, 2009 at 11:14 am

We’ve just returned from two months in the US. I worked in Atlanta for 6 weeks which I quite enjoyed. Then I worked in the Catskills for two weeks- a period about which I prefer to remain silent.  It’s over, (thank God) and I am now a far worse person for it. At least my bank account […]

The Book Thief

Posted on Jun 17, 2009 at 2:11 pm

I believe The Book Thief deserves its own post. Actually, if I was to post about nothing else for the next year, it would still not be enough.  Every so often I stumble upon an author whose writing so astonishes me that I do not know how to express my admiration.  Markus Zusak obviously loves words and he uses […]

What’s better than having a full day off to write?

Posted on Jun 4, 2009 at 12:54 pm

Answer:  Sitting in my office with no patients on my schedule (Ok- 3 patients in 8 hours) and being paid to write. I am loving this.  Now to stop procrastinating and get back to my revisions. My goal is to have this version finished by the time the contract is signed. Can’t wait to surprise […]

Book review of “Knife”

Posted on Jun 2, 2009 at 8:50 am

My daughters and I spent the weekend wrestling over a copy of  rj_anderson  ‘s  Knife (or Faery Rebels in the US). The experience caused us to enact certain Holy Rules of Book-Stealing which included 1) Breaks from reading that are greater than 10 minutes constitute a surrendering of book to the next taker. 2) Bathroom breaks are allowed as long […]

This access to Livejournal at work is a real problem

Posted on May 17, 2009 at 10:10 am

Because I have no patients today. And so I am staring at the computer and thinking— why not post something? So, in Leah news: 1) My contract is finally moving forward! Huzzah! There was a legal/artistic difference that needed to be got through but I have seen some really interesting possiblities in the proposed revisions […]

so I discovered that I have access to Livejournal at work…

Posted on May 11, 2009 at 10:40 am

But no facebook. So what else can I do if my patients do not show up? Especially one that was alloted half an hour? Perfectly justified, in my opinion. Today is my first day of work for Maccabi in Nes Zionna in the Tipat Chalav which is the Israeli equivalent of a developmental screening and […]
