I personally love when Switch-Up week rolls around on Dancing with the Stars. I like to see how excited everyone is to work with someone new, even though they have to pretend to sort of hate it. Although last night a few people flat-out admitted that they were having a better time with their new partner. I’m looking at you Paula! Then performance night arrives and they can’t help but be TICKED if their original person is getting better scores. Everyone likes to put on a good face, but TV does not lie. And neither does my DVR when I rewind to make sure that was a definite eye roll. Let’s break down the dances, shall we?
My friend Lara recently finished watching all five seasons of Alias. She was immediately sucked into the epic love story of special agent Sydney Bristow and her hotter than crap handler Michael Vaughn. Who cares that she caught this train roughly a decade after the rest of us? I choose to celebrate that she now understands what I’ve been talking about for the last 13 years.
In 2008, I traveled to Israel and visited Caesarea Phillipi, which is believed to be the site of the Transfiguration. This is me in front of the gates of hell. And that is the reason why the temperatures at Caesarea Phillipi resemble the surface of the sun.
Our tour guide Ruti was an interesting character. We were convinced that she was definitely scoring some kickback shekels from the many random vendors we visited between here and the Holy City. This particular day she had our driver take us to the middle of nowhere to eat lunch. We learned to accept these non-scheduled stops as super fun adventures. What wonderful treats will the side of the dusty road of Israel bring us today?
Nine times out of 10, it was either falafel and schnitzel. La’CHIEM!
