Today's thoughts/ Al Het

I got to work around 6:30 this morning. I had a bunch of stuff I knew I needed to catch up on. It's 7:10 and I've done everything I can.

My throat hurts like mad. Yesterday it wasn't even hurting. Is this my punishment for not going in yesterday afternoon after I started to feel better? I feel and look like crap today.

One thing can't get me down: It was almost *chilly* this morning. Like, could-that-be-a-breath-of-fall chilly. Fall is my favorite time of year and I'm really excited for non-muggy, clear, fresh air.

Kol Nidre is Friday night, Yom Kippur is Saturday. My mom's Sunday School class wrote their own version of the Al Het* which is the prayer where you confess all your sins-- but not really applicable to third graders. They wrote things like "We have sinned against you by throwing things at our sisters so they would break on their foreheads" and other really specific things... I think I'm going to write my own as well. Obviously the sins listed are more applicable to me than to third graders, but still, some are not. I need to add some "We have sinned against you by lying to ourselves" "We have sinned against you by not doing better things with our boredom" and the like.

*I requested a Wikipedia page on this.

One rubber ducky, please.

I'm just drinking lots of water. I stupidly gave away all my cough drops.

Are you going to *write* the Wikipedia page? Because that would be cool. I want to write one on something that's a stub right now but then I'm lazy.

I haven't actually written any, I'm still not confident enough yet. I edit them often though. Maybe if this one isn't written for awhile I'll do it.

Sounds like a good idea. I should write myself an Al Het too.

Does your synagogues do the Al Het where the sins are in alphabetical order?
