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.

In Which I Write About News Instead of Anything Productive

,

Arggh . . . I start writing a post, procrastinate in the middle, and then delete it by accident afterward.

Anyhow. All that aside, I still haven't written my "Boro Park post", which despite the requests for it, if I ever get around to doing it, I doubt it will be all that interesting.

Anyhow: A few randoms rants that have been bothering me lately . . .

  • Israel has completely lost its mind. Entirely. Olmert must want to take down the country with his failing leadership . . I mean to release Kuntar? Come on! I'll leave the serious rhetoric to those that spend more time on politics.
  • There's been a recent spat over t-shirt that says "Obama my Slave" -and while I don't condone offensive t-shirts, and even more so it seems the whole story is just a ploy by the DIB who makes them to garner publicity - I find it very annoying that society will put up with such atrocious shirts that have the audacity to call the President a 'war criminal', if not with enthusiasm then at at least a bemused smile and tacit approval . . .
  • Does anyone think I should get a new kasket?


Any how . . . getting set for Merkos Shlichus.

Sefirah said...

Spend your money on more useful things, for instance, buying your sister a new pair of shoes.
That would be Ideal.

I like Sefirah's suggestion... Not only do you get to fulfill the Mitzvah of Ahavahs Yisroel, you also get to make you're sister happy, either way you win!

Nemo: It seems that you joke has fueled Anon's (the Amazing Yankel's) Polish sense of humor.

Sefirah: Saw this on Macy's website . . . use it and enjoy -consider the savings my present to you.
99¢ shipping and save 30-50% Use promo code 99cents

ME: No taking sides with your friend -this is purely a Lightstone deal. Nice to see you back again.

Cheerio: Hay, watch it, I plan on wasting my money whenever I want!

Anon: We'll always have Lita.

Anyhow is one word. I have no idea what a kasket is, unless you mean casket.

Mottel said...

Anyhow is word first coined in 1690.
A Kasket is a Russian Flat Cap . . . see my pictures if you want to see mine.

She may be your "Lightstone" sister, but she's my Tzfat sister, so yes her having new shoes is definately of my concern.
Thanks for the welcome back, and about the kasket, why do u want a new one?

Perel said...

Keep the kasket until it wears off, by that time u ll be famous ( euh, i guess famous author?) then u could sell it in an auction, it will make u rich, that way u could buy sefirah all the shoes she wants...

You are hevink trouble to komunikate mit a ketz ver redt Yiddish mit an Ingarisher exsent? Very simple dere iz 2 ways:

1) Take your fevorite ket and sign it up far food shtemps. Itz not hard. Just please to contekt your local politikelly konnekted ashcan, I mean askan, end offer to him 30% of da shtempleach. Den de ket teaches you Lipa Yiddish.

2) You maybe are not liking ketz. So you tell to dem in Ingarisher Yiddish "Shygets Aross". Shygets you say like it looks, and Aross, vell, how I explain it, now is tree weeks so you kent listen to Lipa oder Michoel Schnitzler but from dem you ken get an idea!

3) You maybe iz likink ketz fried and you are not trustink anymore der plant in Postville. Nisht a problem! Take der ketz to a shoichet fin der Mishmeres Hatznius d'Vaad Hafrumyakim d' Boro Park. He schecht der ketz because it meow too loud (but check please Rav Falk's sefer end remember also to wear seamed stalkinks or YOU get schechted) and you ken listen to its lest meows in Ingarish which you never to forget!

Also you ken use de Der Shygetz system to get food shtempelach to buy shoes far your shvester in oichet a biber het (besser fin a kasket) but far det you need to send to me a self addressed envelope mit a postage shtemp end a check made out far kesh to $29.95 end I send to you an EBT kart mit a list of shoe end het stores on 13 Evenue what take EBT far clothink!

(I'm just trying to do what the heiliger Rizhiner's Chassidim did and show Hashem that I don't take these 3 Weeks seriously enough, so He can take them back and turn them into Purim which I do take seriously!)

Though I don't know your sister or her friend, I must side with the idea of you buying her some new shoes!! Shalom bayit!!

Mottel said...

I'll buy her shoes if she gets me a new Lap Top . . . and a Digital SLR.
