I'm procrastinating and playing Michele's comment game. I *should* be editing a book that's totally overdue. I *want* to be working on the short story I'm writing that I'm a little stuck on...

I'm trying to decide what CDs to buy next. I love Madeleine Peyroux too. Both of her CDs are fantastic.

I'm doing two things right about now:

1 - enjoying this great entry of yours.
2 - wondering about the Hebrew origins of your name. Mine's Hebrew, too. It means "my vineyard." Odd considering I barely drink :)

We all sound like we're procrastinating. Carmi, Keziah was the beautiful second daughter of Job from the book of Job.

Pink Pen, stuck, let me tell you about stuck! So much advice around about it and I'm still stuck.

The Music Whore, great title. Doesn't MP sound like Billy Holiday?

Joely, I popped into your blog too.

Stacy, this whole blog visiting thing Michele and Alison started is addictive.

can you write out a phonetic pronunciation of your name? it's beautiful-- i remember seeing it in a name book once and seeing that it might be related to my sister's name. as she and her husband are currently pondering pregnancy and hoping for a girl i thought this might be nice. here from bitch, phd. when i saw your name i had to visit.

Hi elle
I'll have a go. It's Kez with the e sounding like the e in egg; i as in I and ah as in the ending of Sarah or Deborah. Keziah was the beautiful second daughter of Job in the Biblical Book of Job. It was also my great, great grandmother's name. It was more common in the nineteenth century. I like it.
