Surfacing Briefly

As I noted a week ago today, life is busy and will continue to be busy for a while. We're still in the midst of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, I've got deadlines at work, a publication party to plan, and Guilder to frame for it. I'm swamped.

A few quick notes, though:

• Those of you who saw me feeling ill at shul on Wednesday, I just want to let you know that I'm feeling much better. Thanks to everyone for their offers of assistance.

• Nomi and I went to sleep last night thinking that the Sox had lost the game, thanks to this (now edited) post at Universal Hub: That's All She Wrote. My reaction to the win this morning: the Sox are playing Mets baseball. Or, at least, they're playing the way the Mets did in the 1980s when they would pull it off at the last minute.

• We've managed to catch some new TV. I'm glad to be watching Pushing Daisies again, and I liked the first episode of the American version of Life on Mars. (Maybe growing up in NYC has something to do with that.)

• Thanks to the Brookline TAB article, I was recognized in the Brookline Post Office as I was buying stamps. Maybe that'll help turn my book into a New York Times bestseller.

• The holiday of Sukkot really allows me to see what a cool Jewish community we've got. Nomi and I have been enjoying the hospitality of many families.

• The Carole and Paula in the Magic Garden DVD set is finally out! But I couldn't find my favorite song. ("I'd like to shake your hand, shake hands, I'd like to shake your hand, shake hands and how are you?") Anyone know if it's in any of the episodes they chose for the DVD?

Any questions?

That was the theme song, so presumably it will be in every episode.

Must order....
Apparently it wasn't the theme song, at least not in the episodes I viewed. Nor was it the standard ending song. But I think someone once found it on YouTube...
I remember a different theme song (something about "This is the garden where we..." tell stories, sing songs, etc), unless that's part of the same song. My memories of this show are rather vague.
Flap? Jog my memory, please.

Sherlock is around.
Wow, it sounds like you have quite a lot going on right now. I feel the same way! Looking forward to seeing you guys in a couple weeks.

Shabbat shalom!
Get some rest. If you haven't got your health, you haven't got anything.

That's an...interesting thing to say, given who the Mets pulled it off against (and around here, there's a slightly different interpretation of what happened).

Anyway, given the previous two ALCS that Boston played in, this might be more accurately called 'Red Sox baseball' at this point.
The Mets actually had a habit of coming back from a losing game many times during the 1980s; to be honest, I wasn't even thinking of the 1986 World Series when I noted that.
I really liked "Starbucked" and you recommended it. I request more recommendations. Please.
Um, okay. Try "The Devil in Dover." I can lend it to you if you can't get it from the library.
