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.

Hey, People Actually Read My Stuff?

In years past, when traveling abroad on Merkos Shlichus, I wrote for Chabad.org's Roving Rabbis blog.


This year, on the inaugural post for the new year of posting, LE7 brought my attention to the followng comment.

It's that lovely time of year again!
Oh joy! I remember last year's Roving Rabbis blog and can't wait for this year's edition!

Is that Chanan character going to blog again? And what about the Lightstone dude?

Like "post'ele" - good term. I may borrow/steal it sometime. I used "postina" once.

Of course, we like reading the Lightstone Dude's posts.

le7 said...

And to think, neither of you are on Merkos Shlichus this year...

The Real Shliach said...

A little birdie told me that the comment is lav davka so authentic...

le7 said...

Yeah I had a feeling it was a blogger.

Mottel said...

-Leora: I'm glad you like post'ele! Postina is nice, but conjures images of creamed wheat . . . Post'ele has that geshmake yiddishe ta'am :-) Like s'blog't zich!

-TRS: The brother of the little bridie seems to also is comes from an Extraordinary source . . . But imagine, with out Roving Rabbis we would not know our dear friend, nor each other for that reason . . . i lav hai yoma d'kagarim kama mottel TRS v'E ika b'shuka!

"Sammy Ekol" has left a lot of suspicious comments on Chabad.org

The Real Shliach said...

Mottel: true dat.

Sammy: lol!

e said...

the answer that that question is: one and none respectively. Mottel would be Mottel, but there would be no TRS.

le7 said...

Thus no TRS + le7... what a HORRIBLE thought.

e said...

y'know, i think that probably TRS would have bumped into the blogosphere some other way. But I'm certain that I would never have gotten involved in this business otherwise.

Dovid said...

Im sure sammy ekole is somehow an anagram for Elisheva

The Real Shliach said...

Or e.

Mottel said...

TRS: e? It couldn't be . . . Commenting is a social thing, and we all know e is anti-social!

The Real Shliach said...

Sorry to break it to you, but both those assertions are essentially incorrect.

Mottel said...

TRS: Commenting is a social thing. It may not be as social as a farbrengin or going out for drinks, but it requires one to interact with others - and is what makes a blog a social media. And e claims he's anti-social. Who am I to argue . . . Though I do have photos of him tearing a rug at my chasuna . .. Unlike some other bloggers

The Real Shliach said...

Exactly. e's claims of anti-socialness are bogus.

Dovid said...

I can't say e is or is not anti-social, but I would certainly suspect him of inciting the masses. Remember his christian heretic persona? http://gavhathehunchback.blogspot.com/2009/03/math.html

e said...

trs+mottel: to paraphrase the Zohar, "ees anti-social, v'ees anti-social."

Dovid: yeah, that one and many others.

Dovid said...

Hey I like it, it keeps things interesting. The only problem is your always the prime suspect now, there's no suspense or mystery anymore.

e said...

yep, that's why I stopped. But on Chabad.org, it's kind of like a shlichus to leave comments. Gotta make the site look well read.

le7 said...

Yeah what happened to the TP?

Also Sammy would be a good fake name for me (my English middle name is Samantha...)

I was thinking something like Louisa Bentley... what do you think?

The Real Shliach said...

J's middle name is Bentley...

le7 said...

Aww that's so cute and Southern.

e said...

We gotta think of a gezhe-sounding hebrew equivalent to Bentley for him

e said...

any hebrew equivalent would be good too.

le7 said...

Berel? Boruch?

The Real Shliach said...

Benchke

le7 said...

What's my friend's dad's name? Berke?

The Real Shliach said...

Yes, it is. Hmm, that's a good name too.

Mottel said...

What is TP and who is Bentley?
As to the name - the closest name is Bendit . . .
But for a gezhe twist we need Bentshe (benchke - puh-leez) or Berke.

e said...

yonataon boruch?

Yonatan berke?

Yonatan boruch bendet!!

boruch benedet is an established combo, like dovber, or aryeh leib, because bendet is the translation of boruch. I like it because it has nice rhythm. what do you think?

Mottel said...

E: Yes Boruch Bendet is an Ivri-Teitsh name. But Yonatan? What are you a tzioni? Yoske uder nach besser Yushke! Yushke Boruch Bendet . . .

e said...

tp=tzniut police

bentche=dimunitve of ben tzion

e said...

i think his first name needs to something usable and his middle name needs to be fun. Hence Yoantan boruch bendet.

le7 said...

Yonason Boruch Bendet...

we named J.

Should someone tell him?

e said...

i already emailed him a link to this post.

le7 said...

Good thinking.

e said...

le7 said...

Right I guess so. Good point.

e said...

le7, all this agreemtent. nice.

le7 said...

I'm just a wee bit distracted. I'm rather agreeable when distracted.

Mottel said...

E: Who you defining Betnche for?
I think the A-B-A style of chassidish (yoshke), normal (boruch), chassidish (bendit) works . . . But Yosef works better then yonatan.
-LE7: how about Zhamke - using a french J to make the sound?

No one has told me who this Bentely character is.

le7 said...

I think he would prefer Yonatan.

The Real Shliach said...

J Bentley K

Dovid said...

e wants to be the only one with a one letter name. He just knocked off J and soon he'll go after C.
Pretty good job, he went from J to Yonas(t)on Boruch Bendet.
But e, there's no reason to feel threatened you're the only one with a single letter that is uncapitalized.

Sebastion said...

e you have a string argument. Im sure when the powers of prophecy come upon while standing in the luke-warm water I will hear your voice on high "YONATAN BORUCH BENDET!"
