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.

Riddle of the Week 7


This weeks riddle is an easier one - so it's worth only 8 points:

One black, one white
One for him, one for her
One when hot, one when cold
Six are we - all but one, not to be.


What are they?





2 bonus points if anyone can tell me the name of the street I just moved to.

Wishing everyone a good fast . . .

The fast days. Black- 9 Av; white- Y"K. Him- Tzom Gedalya; her- Taanit Esther. Hot- 17 Tamuz; cold- 10 Tevet.

And the one missing, I'd assume, is taanit b'chorot- which, if you're not a b'chor- is "not to be".
This may not be correct- I'm chancing it- but my previous comment (hey, cool, I got here first!) definitely is.

Actually, I think "all but one not to be" means that all of them except for Yom Kippur will be cancelled when Moshiach comes (now!)

If you want to tell us what street you moved to go ahead otherwise who cares.

le7: Right on!

Just checking in.... Hang in there...

le7- My thoughts exactly.
Or maybe he just wanted us to say mazal tov to him on his move. If so, Mottel: Mazal tov on your move!

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

Mazel Tov on your move. Now award the points already.

chanie said...

MBM- No kidding!

Mottel said...

Ok 8 points go to Chanie for getting it! With an additional 1 point going to Anon for getting that prat right (channie got it wrong in her second comment)

-LE7: Wow! Take a chill! I don't see how E's middle name or any of the other random "filler" questions that I ask are any more relevant. It's a stupid question that I put in there to attract those that are unable to actually take legitimate shot at the riddles . . . It happens to be moving is something on my mind, and was thus easy to ask!

-Snag Jr: Stop by again.

Lookign Forward: If you share thoughts with LE7, then what does it matter if I get a mazal tov or not? It's pointless in any event . . .

-Modeh: So there's your answer.

chanie said...

Cool! :) Too bad I got it wrong the second time tho... :( But it was still a good guess....

Hm...now I have 23 points. What should I do with them?

Altie said...

give some to me. he never gives me any.

chanie said...

No...I'm saving them up! Lol.
You'll earn some when you are able to brilliantly crack his riddles.

Altie said...

thats not fair. i have to solve them, AND get here first! thats like an impossible feat.

Mottel said...

-Altie: you need to answer a riddle to get points. If you ask really nicely, I'll give you a few.
Follow me on Twitter and you'll know the second a post goes up!

chanie said...

Hey, I'm not always first...but twice I got the answer right. (I'm still bummed that I didn't get the coffee one, but more because I hate not succeeding than because I'm itching for points.)

Altie said...

i dont like twitter.
