A new interesting AIM buddy

So I met someone interesting today... the Chief Rabbi of Poland. Now he's on my buddy list. So, instead of hearing the author of "Jew vs. Jew", Samuel Friedman at Ramath Orah this morning, I sat next to one of the most important Jews in eastern Europe in the past 50 years during davening at Old Broadway Shul (though at that point I had no idea he was even a Rabbi). This will make for an interesting conversation piece on Monday in Yiddish class when the professor asks "tzi menchen hobn nayes?" Vel ich enferen, "yo, hob ich nayes: vei ich dem Groyser Rav fun Poyln. Booyakasha!"

I'd do it like this: Rutta Chugga! Rutta Chugga!

Oh dear God!!! I'm horrified.

Happy turducken/tofurkey day

Yay, I'm a citizen.. still and Butler hyjinx

You Passed the US Citizenship Test

Congratulations - you got 10 out of 10 correct!

Adam Baldachin just got engaged. Whoa! That led to interesting discussion in Butler at midnight. This included myself, perhaps jokingly (or perhaps not...) proposing to Anna Schon, who said yes. Either that or if neither of us are engaged in a week to other people, we'll get married.

Anna: I'm not not having sex until then
Me: So you are having sex until then? That's a double negative!
On back-up engagement at age 40 (or a week from now, which ever's more convenient)

Another bold beautiful Barnard woman (or is it womyn) who wished to remain nameless to someone else who probably wants to remain nameless: Hey, you don't get to smack my ass, only I get to smack my ass.

I went to bed at 4 AM and woke up at 6:30 for Koach Rosh Chodesh services. So exhausted and I still have to finish this paper...

Chodesh Tov,

With lack of any other ideas, I think I'm going to reprise my Michael Moore costume tonight. I'm probably going down to the Village. Here's my current away message, a transliterated Yiddish one: Heint is a chogeg fun di catolike mentchen, un epes tragen maseychus, ober nisht c'mo Mordechai un Ester, ober machsheyfus un ruchos. Efsher ich vel zaynen tzu dem Shtetl Greenwich.
-Out of boredom I wrote something in Yiddish about Halloween

"Today is a holiday for the Catholics, and some wear masks, but not such as Mordechai and Esther, but witches and ghosts. I might go to Greenwich Village."

EDIT 11/1/05 12:24 AM: Nope, surprise birthday costume party and then a night of debauchered paper-writing in Butler
