Separated at Birth

April 22, 2009

A good friend of mine is looking for a hospital. She’s very pregnant, and it’s time to do the rounds, see which place is clean, which has the atmosphere you want, how many people they allow in the room, if they permit doulas and so on.
¬†It’s also a chance for the hospitals to market themselves [...]

Feeling guilty, until the next page

April 16, 2009

I’d really like to have a beer with Sayed Kashua. So do a lot of people in Israel, trust me. Kashua is the guy we could show to our friends, here and abroad, and say “Look, my best buddy is an Arab. See? We get along great, we even get drunk together. So I’m not [...]

The bubble on the Yarkon

April 5, 2009

Every time I tell someone I was born in Tel Aviv, my wife rolls her eyes. I guess she’s right in a way. The hospital I was born in was in fact in Tel Aviv, “Asuta” hospital, on Jabotinsky St. But my folks lived in Ra’anana at the time, 20 minutes away. So, basically that’s [...]

half & half music

April 4, 2009

There’s no such thing.
But I was listening to this song on the radio a few days ago, and it’s half in English, half in Hebrew. Don’t know why. Good tune though, by “Habanot Nechama” (the Nechama Girls). Pretty much a one hit wonder, so far (you’ll see why that’s funny when you listen to the [...]
