Jewgirliva = Jewgirl Trivia

DivaJood has tagged me for the eleven things you don't know about me meemish. This is going to be tough. What haven't we discussed, really? We schlep down Schwartz Lane so often, dishing menses, family, Graves', writing, life, love (lack thereof), naybahs, and so much more. I can't say no to Jood though, she's far too fabulous. And, yes, I am tagging others, so yas best be ready. If you haven't read her meem, you should, it's delightful.


1. Clothes Shop: At the minee, I'm not shopping for clothes because I'm too busy getting my sphere-on. However, all that's changing. Slowly, of course. Anyway, I'm whoring myself to any shoe shop that will have me. Though, I am going for comfort fit, I'm pleased to announce that I still have a degree of taste in that department.

2. Furniture Shop: Please, are you new? Say it with me. What is Schwartzy's love when it comes to furn and tchoch? Come on, you know.... V-I-N-T-A-G-E. Specifically, Eames chairs, armoirs and end/side tables, 40s-30s couches and kitchen tables, 60s lamps and 20s-30s mirrors, statues of women and campy tchoch, 70s and depression glass.

3. Sweet: I'm not doing dairy and I'm low gluten. However, thanks to my sister, Ker, I have discovered Uncle Eddie's vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and eat three a week. They are off the mothah' fuckin' hook delicious.
4. City: Well, let's see. My heart is in New York. My body is in Los Angeles. My brain often wanders to Machu Picchu.

5. Drink: Evolution Apple Juice, Fiji Water and ginger-fuckin-ale.

6. Music: Everything, seriously. Eminem, Billie Holiday, Alicia Keys, Yo-Yo Ma, Joni Mitchell, Regina Carter, KD Lang. The list is so long, oy.

7. TV Series: Monk, Sex and the City, Mad Men, True Blood, Dexter, Little Britain, South Park, Brothers & Sisters, Grey's Anatomy, Testees, Six Feet Under, Arrested Development, Rescue Me. Again, I could go on for days, yo.

8. Film: Young Frankenstein, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, The Goodbye Girl, Nothing in Common, The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover, What Dreams May Come, Like Water for Chocolate, American History X, Requiem for a Dream, etc. etc. etc.

9. Workout: I'm walking a lot and doing a lot of stretchy-floory-yoga-ish exercises. I aspire to get back to running.

10: Pastries: Got any gluten free vegan ones that don't taste like the crack of a sweaty, puckered, ruptured anus?

11. Coffee: LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE FOR IT. Okay, this is where things get serious. I percolate squeezed beans from Pete's coffee and top it off with soy vanilla foam or mocha mix and I feel like I'm in heaven. Or, or, or, I will schlep my ass to Pete's or Urth for a vanilla soy double cappuccino on a Saturday and it is bliss in a cup.

I am tagging the following folks to pony up their 11 list using the same questions divajood answered and requested her tag-ees to post. That's fair, right? You betchya.

Cup of Coffey (I owe ya an email, honey)
Pulp Friction (She'll figure out a way to polify it)
DCup (I'm not sure if she'll go poli or not, but I'm curious to find out)
JDC - (He'll find a way to give this a poli-spin)
Helen Wheels (She'll find a poli spin)

Here's to vintage furniture and all things old. Good luck with that yoga--I keep telling myself I'm going to give it a whirl, but have yet to do so.

You know, I've only seen two of these? Sex and the City and Six Feet Under. I'm lacking.

I'm a fan of Mad Men, but I actually remember those days, and salute the writers and clothes people for getting things so right.

Film: Young Frankenstein, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, The Goodbye Girl, Nothing in Common, The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover, What Dreams May Come, Like Water for Chocolate, American History X, Requiem for a Dream, etc. etc. etc.

I've seen most/some of the ones you mentioned, but would include "Gods Must Be Angry" and "The President's Analyst" where the most evil group in America was the AT&T phone company. Nothing has changed.

Oh my - how I loved this.

The one,the only - Jewgirl in action.

Puckered, ruptured anus. OY.

DCup said...

Oh no! I already did this one, but thanks for the tag, sugar!

I did mine with a twist. I wrote it as if I were 13 again (1978). No politics, but lots of nostalgia.

JEWGIRL: I get MONK on HallmarkChannelEspanol. I saw all of MadMen but I was disappointed that they never used the expression "Stew Zoo." South Park, of course. Grey's Anatomy is on WBespanol but I don't like medical shows. I was too neurotic to watch Six Feet Under. I've never heard of the other shows.

I list a few of my new TV friends on the catch-all part of my most recent post at HELL.

Shit, and I got you a pound of ground beef for your Halloween pillowsack.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

I'll be getting to this in a day or so my sweet. I love that you love Little Britain. I discovered it about 4 years ago and I'm crazy for it.

Madam Z said...

I must be seriously old-fashioned. I cannot imagine anything "vegan" being "off the mothah' fuckin' hook delicious." Nor can I imagine any soy product turning coffee into "bliss in a cup." Maybe I should expand my horizons.

About movies, I am delighted to see you mention "The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover." It played here for only a short time, and I've never talked to anyone else who saw it. Although horrifying, it was one of the most artful, creative, compelling movies I've ever seen.

Can I sit on your vintage furniture while we curl up with Requiem for a Dream? Please?

I loved your 'ginger-fuckin-ale'!
