Felt lucky as a I pumped my car with gas last night, with no wait, no lines, no odd-even rationing, and any gas station to choose from. The petrol shortage in New York and New Jersey following Hurricane Sandy is making me consider how it's probably our future anyway if we don't collectively do something... Continue Reading →
Saw this on my way in from the parking garage at Jerusalem's Technology Park. G-g-ghosts? In Malcha? Really, really hoping it's a company car.
Aright, I know in Israel they are really into putting car seats in the front, but c'mon... #FAIL.
This morning, my husband dropped me off in front of my office and right before I opened the door to the car, I give him a quick kiss as is the morning routine.

The goal there was to get through the move and then get back and forth from the new home. I thought I'd see what leasing... Continue Reading →
My commute has become significantly more interesting. Not much longer, thankfully, but definitely more interesting. It now involves driving through a few kilometers of the West Bank; I can hear some of you cursing me out while some of you are cheering me on. I'll choose to ignore both reactions for now. I don't think... Continue Reading →
On Thursday, we gained control of one of the most dangerous Israeli weapons in the rather wide arsenal. No, we don't have shwarma breath... We got a car. Or, at least, we're babysitting one for a coworker for the next month until we begin leasing one of our very own from my company. Either way,... Continue Reading →
