Okay. So in 24 hours (give or take), I will be sharing with you all some really exciting news... but in the meantime! Can we talk about this video and the completed unexpected (to me) talent in these girls, er... youth?! Well, you'll probably have to discuss amongst yourselves, or exclaim in your head with multiple and enthusiastic pseudo-expletives and exclamation points (@#$Q!!!!!!) thusly.
That's all. As you were.
Oh. ps. They have a Twitter... you know what to do!

So the sun is making a serious 'college try'... and this song is so happy and catchy - and this version is just the most fun thing I've seen all week - so! Enjoy!
In other "trying so hard I can't hardly stand it" news... I'm going to be in a play this month! On the 29th, specifically. And I'm pretty nervous about memorizing my lines. To help, I recorded myself on my phone so I could listen and learn (thanks for that, 2012).
Um... have you ever listened to yourself? Like outside of your own head? Turns out that I sound like an NPR reporter. Lakshmi Singh - call me (maybe...)!
But yeah, if you're in OC circa 29 June 2012, holler at your girl. It won't be profesh, I'll probably blush AND sound like I'm presenting on This American Life - but I'll keep it real!

So I received a very loving email from my aunt the other day... informing me that I've been a little lax in updating this little niche of interwebs. Mea Culpa. To be perfectly honest, I feel as though I'm not really seeing anything I love enough to put up here - and simultaneously, the work I'm doing is somehow too precious to me to share in whatever tiny snippets I could share here. It's nothing confidential... I'm just usually too tired from my long days to pull my thoughts together in any meaningful kind of way! But I'll try.
In somewhat related news, I went to Coachella this year! I had really been looking forward to going - I even made plans to attend before I left Israel nearly a year ago! Here are some pictures... and some anecdotes about my time in the desert..... [yes. it's like that.]
Beautiful balloon sculpture [I didn't name it...]
I took this peaceful picture mere moments before I lost my phone.
If you know me, you know that this is not unusual - but let's see what else I got before the weekend got truly interesting....
The fine folks at H&M set up tent (of sorts) in which they provided water, air conditioning, a myriad beauty products with which to freshen up [because temperatures averaged 105] and a few really awesome waterbed/reclining lounges.
Also? A kissing booth/Instamatic fundraiser for AIDS research. Awesome.
Picnic blanket & multi-purpose shawl (the Bedouins know what is up!), chilling in the Mohave tent.
Now friends... you should know that my vanity factor is pretty high. So why would I include such a photo as this?
I literally passed out not 2 hours later from heat exhaustion. In fact, I missed 2 whole nights of Coachella. I know. But let this be a cautionary tale.
I will tell you what the nice nurse told me as she was hooking up my second bag of saline solution (I'll spare you the deets - but it was NOT pretty):: in extreme heat, for every 2 or 3 bottles of water you drink, have a bottle of gatorade or some other such "sports" drink.
