>I Think I Found My New Favorite Book Series…

December 20, 2006 § 8 Comments

On my lunch break, I ran over to Moishe’s Bake Shop to purchase sufganiyot (jelly donuts) for Tara’s Hanukah party. How great is it to live in a cty where I can ask for sufganiyot and they not only know what I’m talking about, but wish me a happy hannukah on my way out?! Jewish cities rule!
I didn’t want to use this picture of sufganiyot because it’s from Martha Stewart (could you be more waspy??), but it’s an accurate representation and as we have all learned, far too clearly, I does not own a digital camera.

The best thing that happened today is I sold the “Bridge To Terabithia” book to a book dealer in Georgia, so I got to personally deliver it to FedEx. It was like seeing my baby off at the ferry. It was hard to see her go but I know somewhere in Georgia, some young child is not going to understand the magnitude of the Christmas present they are about to receive…. And that’s how I sleep at night.

During the White Elephant part of Tara’s party, I got this amazing young adult book, which was regifted by Emily, who I’ve met before. (Emily basically brought all the junk from her house that she didn’t want.) The book is written for me. And I quote:
“The Phatom reared, silver power against the white fury of snow…. Sam walked toward the hidden home of the wild horses. She was one of them now.”
If this woman (or ghost writer) can get published, I feel pretty good about my chances. Maybe I’ll start a collection of frightening young adult horse books. It turns out that the one I got is number 24 in a huge series. What if I tried to read all of them?

    >Making latkes is hard! Is there some secret prayer you’re supposed to recite to help the potato stick together?

  • Gili says:

    >p.s. disney is making a movie of “a bridge to terabithia” and they’re using the special effects people from “lord of the rings”. the dealer in atlanta called and said the book is going to an english major, not a kid. i’m glad for that. that person is going to be sooo happy. i’m such a nerd.

    >Polarchip – In my experience, it’s not oil that makes latkes stick together – It’s squeezing the liquid out of the shredded potatoes and using the right amount of matzo meal or flour, and egg. But that’s just me.Gili – I love Bridge to Terabithia (though I refuse to see the movie that’s coming out because I think it will make me angry, as adaptations of much-beloved childrne’s books usually do). BTW, I am jealous of you for living in a city where there are so many other Jews. That makes me miss NY and want to move back.

    >Fun fact about Martha Stewart!!Despite her WASP goddess status, she is actually Polish and was probably Catholic once. Her name was Martha Kostyra.Who knew??I mean we all knew Cher was Armenian, much as she pretended to be First Nations…but the Martha thing was news to me.
