Congrats to NannyB, Jillie, and dontcare, and thanks to all for keeping me on the birthday high for much longer than should be right at my age.

A very merry unbirthday to you!

But that’s you. As for me, well, today is my birthday. 29th, to be precise.
I could write about taking stock of my life so far.
I could write about my dreams for the future.
I could just plain write about myself.

But I decided to leave that to you. Here’s the deal: write me something, anything, whatever, about me. It doesn’t have to be true or even remotely based on any kind of fact. It does, however, need to make me feel good somehow, what with this being my birthday and all.
ONLY the comments that make me smile, laugh, or need a cold shower, will go into a draw to win one of three fabulous gift bags. And what is in these gift bags, you ask? There will be some destashed items, such as books, cd’s, dvd’s, handbags, yarn, or whatever the hell else I decide to pass on to a new home. There will also be items handcrafted by yours truly. All items will be in good condition, and come from a smoke-free home, however I do have a cat so if you are allergic I will be unable to send you anything soft and fluffy. I am not currently specifying the exact content of each gift bag, because that will be determined after I have done some creepy stalking of the lucky winners.

I’m giving y’all a week. Comments posted until the end of May ’08 will be included in the draw. Good luck to you, and Happy Birthday to me!

* Be warned that some of the people I hang out with on teh intarwebz have quite impressive pottymouths, and I have no control whatsoever over what they might choose to say here. Read other comments at your own discretion, and please don’t be offended by anybody else here. This is about me, after all, and I can say to a certainty that I’m not offended by any of it.

1 June ’08 – I’ve locked the comments and will be drawing the winners when I don’t have any screaming babies trying to destroy my laptop.

I love teething!


Here’s the deal. I’ve been blogging here for quite a few months now, but really wanted a blog with more advanced features. So here I am.

A short introduction if you’re just picking up from here:

Yael, 28, proud and harried mother of Neta, a 28 month old girl, and Yiftah, a 5 m/o boy, living in Israel, crafting, cooking, changing diapers, managing to put in an occasional five minutes of working, and kvetching about it all.

So, yeah, I love teething.
