Yom kippur, logo’s and walking for animals

Ask the Yenta

“Dear Yenta, I’m new to the city. Where can I go for Yom Kippur services – where I don’t have to belong to the temple or pay a high ticket price? Thanks.”

I got your answer!

“Dear Yenta, I’m looking for some ideas for wrap gifts for a cable TV show I’m working on.  My budget is low and I’m trying to think of something different – I’m at a loss for ideas. Can you help me?”

This is fun – especially since everyone in Cali wears flip flops!

Thought this is also fun…custom-design your own monopoly game!  Try contacting the manufacturer to have them do a “theme” board for your show?!?

Okay, now you may think I’m crazy – but this is sooo funny <div”>Twister Dance DVD 

USB hand signs – dorky and cool!

Or just call my go-to guy for all things that need a “logo.”

Old Sneakers

Monday, September 21, 2009

Alright, so I’m still working on Spring Cleaning – even though it’s almost October.  Time to go through my shoes (I’m a girl, I have a lot.) I don’t know why, but I can never seem to let go of my sneakers – and I’m not talking about converse or other street sneakers… I’m talking about the type of real athletic shoes used for sports, going to the gym, etc.  I literally have 5 pairs that I no longer wear regularly.
