I made it to Monte Carlo for the International TV Festival leading up to the Golden Nymph Awards. Today was the gigantic back-to-back press day. I actually slept seven hours last night and survived today on very little food (vegan options are close to impossible here), but I think the drinks that flow here accounted for most of my calories, so we are good.
Here are the top five cool things and the top five not-so-cool things that happened today.
1. Sustenance. A proper vegan meal has been acquired by yours truly (with a few modifications) at our hotel: panini with olive tapenade, avocado, tomato and fresh basil. French fries (er…pomme frites: whatever). Read the rest of this entry →
Time Magazine put a picture of a mother breastfeeding her 3-year-old son on their latest cover, and the whole world started talking. Several news and media sources contacted me to get my opinion on the matter, and here’s what I had to say:
Oh GrubStreet. How I love thee. You are part of New York magazine, which was sort of second to the Torah in my house growing up. (Sometimes first, but that’s not the point.) You are funky, fun, slightly irreverent, and really the epitome of a special kind of New York hip, something I aspire to very much.
However… on this one point you are mistaken: my blog is NOT–I repeat–NOT Kveller.com with its myriad recipes for kugels and articles about body image after having 3 kids (I know Wikipedia was not working yesterday but plenty of other websites could tell you I only cranked out 2!). My blog is www.kveller.com/mayim-bialik. I don’t post kugel recipes (at least not until I find a vegan one I like), and I have only had 2 kids. But I guess I covered that already. And I don’t know if I’m “super-relig,” but I will let you be the judge of that I suppose.
Thank you, GrubStreet for the shout-out. I hope now that you have fallen for Kveller.com in all of its awesomeness you will check out my personal blog which also will be awesome. I promise.
And if you will only think I am cool if I have another kid and post a kugel recipe, give me 9 months and check back in with me. I will make you love me for just being me. Just you watch!
