The Hora, the Hora

Remember when Queen Elizabeth said she was having her "annus horribilis"? Sounded kind of dirty, but we knew what she meant. In 1992, not only did Chuck split from Di, Queenie was also forced to pay taxes. The horror, the horror.

In health terms, the previous twelve months have been similarly horrid for me. In addition to numerous colds, flus, coughs and sneezes, I just experienced a three-week bout with pneumonia. Hence, my latest disappearance from bloggerizing. Still, I'm almost fully recovered now, so the inane drivel begins again.

Most recently drivel-wise is a shout out to all of you to go see "Loud and Fast Jews" at YIVO in NYC tonight. Lenny Kaye, Handsome Dick Manitoba, Tommy Ramone and Chris Stein will be talking about the Jewish Origins of Punk. Hmm, sounds like a good idea for a book, doesn't it? I wonder if anyone's written it...

Till next time,

I'm glad you're feeling better. I had the flu for four weeks last year and it was the WORST. Like watching the world from inside an aquarium.

Thanks. But I only wish it had felt like I was in an aquarium. At best, it was like I was in an aquarium that hadn't been cleaned for weeks.

Ewww. :) But I know what you mean. :) Now get yourself some fresh air and some chicken noodle soup.
