The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

Great meme Mottel, very interesting. It is amazing what you can learn about a person through their answers.

I am so glad that I tagged you! :D

I love the photo too, what beautiful colours!

RaggedyMom said...

Good answers! I switched to the beta too, and so far it hasn't seemed too different to me.

It is amazing what you learn about people through the Meme.
Feel free to tag me any time.
And I'm glad you liked the picture. G-d willing there'll be many more.

Thanks. Beta does have some nice features but nothing mind blowing that I could see yet.

You are chassidish? Give me a break.

[a] if you are a baal tshuva and did all these aveiros, then I wouldn't advertise my previous behaviour.

[b] if this is a joke. Then it is not fitting for a chassidishe yingerman.

Do you understand English?

Feh, Feh.

Mottel said...

It seems my friend that there is some misunderstanding here.
I have no clue to what you are referring to.
In general you should be dan l'chaf z'chus, and b'frat when one assumes it etc. (As the famous American 'pisgam' goes).
The only thing that I could possibly think that you may be getting at would imply a complete understanding of English on your part. NOT mine.
The Meme was a list of things that a person may have done in his life, and I merely highlighted (IE made bold -as I openly wrote) what I had
done.
To make it easier on you my semi-heimishe friend, I've collected all of the boldded options (ie the ones that I did).
Look over the below list and tell me what is wrong with any of them.
Next time think before you accuse.
A Gut Yom Tov.
