    Never mind that I am so fucking old that I used to babysit for Simon. His blog is awesome, even though I don't really get all the references.

This is a great story Ann. I, too, get bladder infections and my doctor gave me a pill to take literally right after sex. It works wonderfully. If needed email me. I had three grandkids here every night to light the candles and open a present. Unfortunately, because I bought presents when I saw them all year when I went to wrap I realized I was uneven so in my effort to even up they got 14. Small however and no huge one except a Wii Shawn White snowboard (not the one that has alcoholic mentions on it, that is the skateboard one). I just couldn't get 6 year old's games marked 10 and up. But why should a 10 year old have alcoholic references on theirs either. Anyway all the good gifts were from grammie and all the not so hot ones were from Hanukkah Harry. So it was a win win for me.

I too get bladder infections! Isn't it interesting, Ann, to see what your readers take home from your Hannukah story? Let's hear from others who get bladder infections after sex!


Fuck Hanukkah. Let's start a religion honoring our dear shit-slinging, painfully honest, commune-loving ANN who has given the gift of laughter when it is not only desperately needed, but least expected. Start the traditions now......i think the word fuck needs to be incorporated into all prayers. Bueller?

The number of days celebrating Hanukkah should be voluntary. ("Nina.Sorry, no present tonight. Tonight's not Hanuakkah. Tomorrow is as is 3 nights from now")I think 5 nights spread over 8 days is sufficient. And you get to eat latkes only once. So you better get it right, whether you like a hot batch of the potato-with-onion-with-flour-and-oil-I-grated-by-hand-oy-my-hands-are-so-tired-with sour cream-on-top kind, or the sweet potato-edamame-zuchinni-beluga caviar-on-top-look-what-I-did-with-my-fancy shmancy-food processor kind.

And no, I don't get bladder infections any more since I started drinking 3 glasses of cranberry juice a day. I'm diabetic now but that was a small price to pay.
