Fasts don't seem to ever be

First new post in... over a year. How about that? I'm testing the new post editor and it just popped up a notice that "Draft saved 1 августа 2017 at 17:37:01" guessing the month is how August is written in Russian?

The new LiveJournal post maker / editor is quite... white. Pale, even. So it goes. I was just remarking to a friend that in the time since Chaim was born, I've only posted less than a dozen times if that. I suppose it has something to do with how Facebook has taken over our social media lives. I pop in here from time to time to see what is new on my friends feed. I used to check it a few times a day because that's how often it would be updated. Now I can go a few days and be able to see all the new posts in a few minutes... mostly from one of my friends in England.

Reading old entries is fascinating. This one in particular seems quite whiny. Hmm. Creating links in the new version of the editor also presents you with Russian text. How about that.

So — we are still living in Kew Gardens right now. I don't want to be living here anymore. We are looking at Florida and Oregon as far as places to live, though G-d knows I would relocate to Seattle if a job offer came along and we could afford to live there. That would also be quite amazing.

making up songs

I often make up songs. They often take music from actual songs and then have made up lyrics that usually make me laugh. This is important as I am usually the only person who hears said songs. For awhile I have been singing "She Do Babby Things" to the tune of "Why Can't We Be Friends?"

What's a babby? Glad you asked. It's the word that Fred the Butcher from Coronation Street used instead of baby.

Anyhow it goes something like this :

She do babby things
She do babby things
She do babby things
She do babby things
Yes she do babby things like crawl up on a guy
and she do not do things like eat cream cheese on rye

Over one year later...

There was a time when I couldn't fathom going even a full day without checking Livejournal. Now it's more like weeks, sometimes a few months... and then I wonder why there are so few new posts despite how many friends I have on here. Only a few real life friends post regularly, and a few friends I made because of Livejournal -- and some of them are troopers that post both here and on Facebook. Mark and Tim, I am specifically thinking of you. :)

The last time I wrote in here, we were trying to get pregnant.

Now? Malka Lilah just turned six months. So we have that going for us, which is good.

I'm going to hit pause on this update as I need to do a workout... at four forty in the morning after a little less than three hours of sleep. Family portrait happening at Le Target Boutique tonight. Here's to the coffee it will take to get me there... and Shakeology.

Insanity start date!

In the next two weeks there will be THREE big holidays that all involve a lot of eating -- if you're anything like me you'll want to pick yourself up afterward and get moving! That is why I am going to start doing the Insanity sixty day workout on Monday, September 30th!

I would really love some "I'm right there with you, mate!" sort of help -- that is, if anyone wants to start Insanity at the same time, let me know! We can encourage each other and make progress notes. I also have the hookup to get it at a good price... let me know!


every time

I think every time I have posted in my journal this year I have written about how long it has been since I have last written. Uck. Maybe 2013 will be the year I return to more regular posting.

At this point in time I have a two year old son (Chaim Yosef Davidescu, if you didn't know his full name) and we are, true story, thinking about a second, Hashem willing. I suppose we shall see if / when it happens.

I have been working at Weill Cornell Medical College for just a bit over a year now and am grateful to both G-d and my co-worker who told me about the opening -- not just because the job is fantastic but because it got me out of what was a less than pleasant working environment for me. Higher pay and lower insurance cost really sealed the deal -- and I have already gotten a raise since I started working here that was three times larger than any raise I ever got at my previous job.

There were many things for which I am thankful at my previous job, mind you. That job came at the perfect time in my life. Prior to that I had been doing freelance work for one person and working from home -- that lasted nearly five full years before he simply ran out of money shortly after I moved back to New York and he just couldn't afford to pay me anymore. I wish he had given me a little notice instead of just telling me out of the blue that it was over. Either way, I was very fortunate to find my previous job and even more fortunate to find the job where I am now. I go home happy and not feeling stressed out over things that happened over the course of the day.

Indeed I continue adding userpics

This was going to be entry #3000 until I realized that it was going to be entry #3000 and then it became that much more important to make it about that rather than what this is going to be.

Sometimes I have an idea or thought that keeps coming back to me for no apparent reason, but there it is and I have to wonder why the thought crosses my mind. I told my wife this recent one and she stared at me as though I had a second head.

Here is the thought :

What if there were a parallel universe in which everything were exactly the same as our universe except that instead of having a show called Cagney and Lacey, theirs was called Cagnor and Larsig, who were men instead of women?
