I. Am. WONDER WOMAN. December 27, 2015

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with Wonder Woman. I even got a fake Wonder Woman tattoo and put it on my tricep. (Still not willing to get a real one.) I loved the Wonder Woman TV show when I was a kid, though to be honest I can’t remember the plot of a single specific episode.…

We All Get Lit December 6, 2015

It is the holiday season, and as a Jew in a predominantly Christian neighborhood, it can be a little lonely.  My holiday isn’t represented in the local retail stores, at the schools, or, well, pretty much anywhere that I didn’t personally provide the materials for it to be represented.  Our house is the dark, mean…
