Funny: Yarmulke. Sad: The Jewish Drawer

In watching and enjoying the oeuvre of Jewish Hollywood juggernaut Judd Apatow -- the "40-Year-Old-Virgin," "Knocked Up," "Bridesmaids" -- I have noticed that the romantic connection of a Jewish man to a woman who isn’t Jewish is a kind of recurring motif.

Mea culpa, al chet and all that. Among my other shortcomings, I’ve been one lame blogger lately, posting nary a word for a whole week. And my sole flimsy excuse is the fact that I am, like other Jews, just now emerging from a month-long orgy of holidays.

Especially since most (unlike me) work for companies and organizations that remain open on said holidays and who, when not doing the aforementioned malachot-refraining and synagogue-attending, have had to scramble to build a sukkah, do laundry, cook and so forth.
