After flying 3+ hours from Sydney, Australia to Auckland, New Zealand, then driving over an hour to the city of Hamilton, we checked into a motel that was straight out of 1972. And not like, “Oh, let’s be quirky and get some kitschy 70s furniture.” No… this couch hasn’t moved since the 70s. And I’m pretty … More The Awesome Waitomo Glowworm Caves in New Zealand
I promise… I will be going through our New Zealand pictures and remaining Australia pictures and will get more posts up soon… But right now, I only have the strength and brain capacity to give jet lag the middle finger. Actually, since I look completely… well… jet lagged, I’ll have Beyoncé give the finger for me. … More F You, Jet lag!
WE’RE HOME! However, in addition to being welcomed home by my parents’ love and them having our house cleaned and stocking our fridge… We were also greeted with our (previously) broken car air conditioner in 90+ temps, a corrupted Internet modem (which we have to wait two days to have fixed), an error message on … More Welcome Home?
We will be back from New Zealand soon… To tide you over for our return (and inevitable jetlag)… Here is The Moo in the middle of Lane Cove in Sydney giving a special performance: More to come, (from Burbank) Jessica
When Husband and I first found out we’d be heading to Sydney, Australia for two and a half months, one of my concerns was that I wouldn’t know anyone. Sure, neither would he, but he would be in an office environment where he would HAVE to interact with people. And as much as I love … More CMU in AU (Carnegie Mellon in Australia)
By the time you are reading this… Husband, The Moo and I have already left Australia and have landed in New Zealand. It’s hard to believe that our 2 1/2 months in Sydney, Australia has come to end. We’ll be on the north island of New Zealand for about 9 days and then… back to good ‘ol … More Goodbye, Australia; Hello, New Zealand
It’s Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year) across the world… well, it starts and ends at different times depending on where you live. But it lasts for two days, so I’m pretty sure that right now, as this is posted, no matter where you are on this planet (can’t speak intergalactically), it is Rosh Hashanah. It’s … More Happy Rosh Hashanah
This isn’t the first time I’ve been out of the country for an American national holiday. Back in 2000, I feel like I might have been in London for Labor Day. In 2009, I was in Mexico with my family for Independence Day, and this year, I’ve been here in Australia for the 4th of … More Remembering 9/11 From Australia
Ok… yes… my parents left a few weeks ago and I’m still posting about all of the cool stuff we did. But in my defense, we did a LOT of cool stuff! It was so much fun to spend the day together checking out Featherdale Wildlife Park and Scenic World in the Blue Mountains. Once … More Featherdale Wildlife Park and Scenic World
It’s been 4 years since I worked on The Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day telethon… Well, technically 5 years since my last show without Jerry. And even though I’m still in Sydney, being that today is Labor Day in the US, it feels strange to not be awake for 24+ hours. The first year I … More My Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon Memories
