Four people who have no children of their own decided to have a dinner party and discuss people who do.

The day I got to New York, there was a citywide manhunt for a serial killer. So it wasn’t my kind of manhunt (I prefer my men sane), but at least they got the psycho. What else can a person who murders three people with a knife and runs over another one with a car be called? And to top it off he didn’t even know two of the people he had killed.

While most of the political world has had its eye and ears focused on Egypt and the chaos that ensues there, believe it or not, there have been other events capturing the attention of politicians.

I knew my four years of high school French would come in handy one day. Bugarach, a French farming village supposedly located on a ‘sacred mountain’ Pic de Bugarach, is thought to be the best place to get rescued by the aliens, while the rest of humanity goes up in smoke.

Kiev, the city of my childhood, was known for its exceptional courtesy to visitors. I myself would eagerly spend time showing my beloved city to strangers lost in its streets.

And so my 2010 ended with a desperate search for an ashtray. The day started out relatively slow. I had wrapped all the presents, stuffed them under the giant Christmas tree and I sat back on the couch to enjoy the view. For a broken down economy and sagging sales, we had quite a few gifts under the tree.

Christmas is finally here in the United States. This is the most beloved holiday that usually takes off right after Thanksgiving and sticks around till after the New Years. This is the time for gingerbread houses and Christmas trees decked out in their fanciest gear.This is the holiday that brings families together and delivers Seasons Greeting cards from the people they haven’t heard from since last Christmas.
