Sorry to cause such a big uproar. This is really important to me, and whether or not you see it as stupid or immature is your problem. [Ablative Absolute] I really appreciate all the discussion on the matter. Thanks to those who fought for one side or the other, it helped me realize many things, so thanks. For those of you who want to see more discussion on the topic and the fact that I was being too anal about the whole thing, check out this thread in weirdjews


I am really sticky. I have white stuff all over my shirt, arms, and face.

I don't like to avoid innuendo, but really, it's just peppermint pieces. Deb, my mom and I just finished our pretzel/chocolate/peppermint goodness to hand out to neighbors, friends, etc. Crushing peppermints is exhausting and tiring, especially the ones we had. Mega-durable.


Presents = done. I need to finish a few things, but if they aren't done, it's no huge deal. I'm just glad that I got so many great presents without spending too much money. It's no secret that most of my presents came from the Free Book Bin at work, and many of the others came from the crap that came out otf the storage closet (it was to be donated to Goodwill, I was told that if I wanted it, it was mine, so HA. Embezzlement my butt). I did buy a few presents. There were certain things I wanted to get for people that you don't find dusty in a closet or sitting in a free book bin. But, I spent fairly little money and did well.

I also have one more (late! sorry!) Christmas present for reamens which he's known about for months, and I just forgot to give him. I guess it can wait till he comes back, though.

I also have presents on the piano (where we keep all the presents) for Sara, Indira, and a coupe other people that I didn't get a chance to give yet. Those presents will also be late, and I'm sorry :(

But enough about presents. Tuesday we're having a *latke* party with old-school Abrams friends. The ones we used to hang with 15 years ago. We're making all kinds of latkes including sweet potato, spinach & cheese, and sveeral other interesting flavors. It's a shame that all latkes are disgusting.

I won't be eating any at Chabad's Chanukah party either, but I will be attending tomorrow. I wouldn't go if it was at the Chabad House, but they're doing it at Lake Ella. Plus, we can score some free gelt to give out Tuesday (heehee). I'm wearing my hair straight tomorrow so when my dad introduces me to all the 50 year old Jews he wants me to date, they'll want me (I think the straight hair is hotter than the curly). They still won't be able to have me, of course, but it's nice that they will see that.

I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm not moving in till Wednesday. Le Sigh, and oh well. Atleast I'm moving :)

I used to love Chabad's Hanukkah parties when I was at San Diego State. They used to have a sort of "casino night", gaming for scrip that you could bid on prizes with at the end of the evening. I used that idea - with dreidels & Hanukkah gelt - for a Hanukkah party I threw once.

We called the dreidel game at a point where all agreed, and then used the "coins" to bid on some prizes (I'd had everybody bring something). Some reduced their "cash" by eating it instead, but everybody had a good time. One of them was a Soviet Jewish woman who'd just come to the US - and STARTED speaking English - six months before. She'd never heard of the idea of an auction, but really enjoyed it when it was explained to her. :-)

My own gifts aren't really wrapped, but I'm going to put them in some small cardboard containers to protect them (turquoise bead necklaces, etc.) during the flight. Some are Hanukkah gifts, the others New Year's presents. :-)
