6 Days a Week We Wait for Shabbos...

1. I woke up before my alarm went off for the first time in many, many years. I guess there IS something to be said for getting an average of more than 5 hours of sleep per night.

2. When we put "Shabbat morning services - 10:30 am" in our weekly email newsletter, that generally means, "Get here around 11, we won't have a minyan until 11:30 anyway." Wonder of wonder, miracles of miracles, we began with a minyan at 10:35ish, and finished on time at 12:30!

3. ...And headed straight to a student-run lunch and learn on the parsha. Maybe this place isn't completely devoid of Jewish potential.

4. In between some lovely catnaps, I finished a book! I'm not sure I can remember the last time I had time to read a book for pleasure (so to answer your question Aunt Vanessa, yes, I'm reading). It was so nice. And with the advent of the Chippim book club (ahem, let's get on this), I look forward to reading much more frequently.

5. Took a great late afternoon walk to Yoni and Mandy's.

6. While they went out motzei Shab I babysat...and conveniently got to watch the game on their TV (having an away game at Mississippi State significantly lowers my ability to hear said game from my apartment).

7. I had forgotten that babysitting results in being paid. Thanks, Yoni and Mandy, for supporting my sushi addiction. My budget is grateful.


  1. 1. I second the book club, and am so so excited for you to telocommunicate in.
    2. Gave two walking tours to excellent reviews... and...
    3. ...though it was hard, gave the $50 tip the second group gave me to the Museum instead of the buy-me-lunch fund. Sacrifice is a virtue.
    4. I also finished a book. Blindness by Jose Saramago. Amazing, recommend it to everyone.
    5. Finally got around to painting the bathroom! E is very happy. I am very sore.
    6. Made stovetop popcorn again. So cheap and yummy!
    7. Sitting on the couch, drinking a dark Czech beer found in random bodega on Queens Boulevard (aka "The Boulevard of Death"), laughing at E being super serious about baseball. Life is good :)

  2. My Super 7 can be found here:
    Love you, Navers!

  3. Finally found my way to your blog! Saw that you are in a race for 20 followers...I am #20! Where do I go to collect my prize?
