  • I'm sniffly and snuffly and icky. Fortunately, I have the world's greatest husband to make up for the ickiness.
  • Point in fact, he drove 45 minutes each way to get me Kosher Krispy Kremes when Pesach ended Tuesday night. He rocks.
  • My dad's cat, Pokane (Poe-Kah-Nee) died yesterday. It's very sad and my dad is taking it very hard.
  • My idiot brother who loathes me with an unnatural passion is going to the Middle East on Thursday. Because he wants to. And I'm not supposed to care because me caring about him would just piss him off. Damn him.
  • Our friend Ellen's eldest daughter is officially engaged and we are going to her vort (engagement party) tonight. Yay. Except I've never been to a vort. Sigh.

Current Mood: sniffly

Walt & I also had Krispy Kremes on Motzaei Pesach. He called after Maariv and asked what sort of chametz I wanted -- for some reason I'd been thinking of doughnuts half the afternoon. So off he went to Krispy Kreme. Yay husband!

How can your brother loathe you? You seem un-loatheable.

I thought engagement parties were a thing of the Jewish past.

My brother isn't the nicest of people. He detests my mother and me with (as I said) an absolutely unnatural passion. I don't know what his deal is. I'm trying not to care either. He hasn't spoken to me since 1995. And really, he hasn't spoken civilly to me since like 1990. Thanks for saying I seem unloathable. :) I'm sure I have many loathable qualities, but I try to keep them to a minimum.

Engagement parties are definitely not a thing of the Jewish past in the Orthodox world. I don't know many Conservative or Reform Jews that have them, though.
