Readjusting is dumb.

Okay, why is it that I envisioned being back in America as like a big soy-sausage-and-Starbucks-fueled party?

Apparently, that was wrong. It is this place where you don't have a job or a place to live and people all speak English even more fluently than you do.

It sucks! Although yes, the lattes are better. They just are.

I'm in California right now, where the lattes are even better than the lattes in Philadelphia, which are just regular.

Oh and it's cold! I didn't know it was allowed to be cold ever anymore. It's May. But I am just shivering all the time. Thank goodness it was up to 80 today. In the sun, I felt fine.

I can't break a sweat in the gym because there's (so much) air-conditioning.

My sister says that I should go easy on myself cause I just got back from Africa. But that does get old. I'm ready for progress. K thanx.

Back in the U.S.S.A.

Okay, okay, I'm back!

We got back Monday morning--we were on the first ever non-stop commercial flight from Joburg to JFK. It was a really smooth and easy flight. When we arrived the NYC fire department hosed down the plane in celebration (or maybe we were on fire).

It is really weird to be here. I guess we just moved to a new place so that is normal. I've noticed people are kind of mean in America and do not say hello. I'm overstimulated by all the people and hullabaloo. I'm starting to get over my jetlag though 9:30 seems like a reasonable bedtime (and maybe it is).

I still need to post seder photos and a few others, so this space will remain operative for the time being. Don't change the channel.

Give me a call if you want to hang out. I don't have a phone, though. So maybe email.
