So, screw the NCTE. I know, I can be a sore loser. BUT. How prestigious is it anyway? And plus, I'm entitled to be annoyed. Rrrr.


So this weekend was good, yeah? Slept 15 hours between Friday night and Saturday morning. That was cool, and needed. Studied 3 chapters of Hebrew language on Saturday.

Spoke to my dear Julia Umansky on Saturday night, several times, who was, uh, gone. Haha. But I love her immensely.

Called Israel at 1 in the morning Sunday. Spoke to Shoshana, Gideon, and briefly to David and Rona. Left a message for Eldar. It was really cool. I'm so glad I did it.

Had my last bite of food Sunday at about ehhhh 4-ish, drove over to Zachy's. His dad was cantor for Kol Nidre at Bnai David Judea. It was excellent, as always. Met up with Yoni. Stayed at Zach's, had our usual deep conversations, yeah. Went to Bnai David Judea from about 8:45 to 3:15 on Monday for services. Yeah, long, but was it worth it? Of course.

The more I go to Orthodox synagogues, the more I really appreciate and like them. Oh, and during Yizkor (which made me cry...when we were saying the prayer for the dead Israeli soldiers), one of the elderly gentlemen collapsed. That was interesting.

Yitzi and Tzvi joined me for the remainder of the service, along with most of Zach's family, and Yoni...who did Birkat Kohanim with me. I haven't done it in years. I'm glad I did it.

Walked back to Zach's, rested briefly, then went with their family to Bnai Akiva, and did Neilah and Maariv. Broke fast with a bottle of water at quarter to 8. Had dinner with Zach's family, then went home.

Hah, I really do talk about Zach a lot on here, I realised, and he ain't even got an LJ. But hey, I love the dude ridiculously, seeing as he's my best friend. Whatever.

UHHHH so. I really really wish I'd transferred to Massachusetts. I can't stand Uni. Everyone is two-faced. Maybe the only people I'd trust with little if no reservations currently would be Yitzi, Addie, and Hannah. Yeah, ouch.

My friend Julia Mayer in New York was saying it was immature of me to really mitigate the importance of my "school friends" in the wake of making the best friends of my life on Nesiya. Maybe it is. But Leah and Julia Umansky and I are in the same situation. The same crap. So, maybe it's not. Maybe everyone really does suck. Hah.

Homecoming...should I even bother going? Would I be missed if I didn't go? No, I'm not being pessimistic, I'm being honest. If I did go, I think I'd follow Addie's advice and take Rachel (from Milken). I think I'd even take Zach with me. We'd be the Holy Trinity. Although Julia U. completes the Holy Trinity. I miss her a crapload.

Yes, I'm rambling. Sorry.

Why dost thou taunt me with a blank comment, O Addie-san?

Wed, Oct. 4th, 2006 05:51 am (UTC)

heeeeey you know where i stand on homecoming :P

Thu, Oct. 5th, 2006 01:37 am (UTC)


A certain somebody from Uni doesn't want to come though...I did ask her.

Thu, Oct. 5th, 2006 02:22 am (UTC)

ah well ... it was wortha shot.

Thu, Oct. 5th, 2006 02:27 am (UTC)


Now, how will this work though...
Do I need to be brought as a date by somebody? Where is it? Does it cost money? Etc....??

Thu, Oct. 5th, 2006 02:41 am (UTC)

yeah, you need to be brought as a "date." i think the tickets are like 35/45 something like that? and since i'm not taking rachel i can take you.

but we'll have to find dates for harry and zach .... but since my friends are all lame and don't have dates either, they could probably take them. and harry's gf? hmm? am i forgetting anybody? i think i have .... 6 dateless friends .... and a "dateless" (as in non-pali date) date who could take people.

i would so love to see us push the grinding and freaking off the dance floor ...

Thu, Oct. 5th, 2006 02:42 am (UTC)

o and where? i actually have no clue. i'm getting my "contract" tomorrow so i should be able to find out details then. so i'll pick up a couple extra contracts.

for the contract, you just need like some basic info and then parent signature or something.

Thu, Oct. 5th, 2006 02:48 am (UTC)

Well...have you asked Harry if he wants to come?

I haven't asked Zach about homecoming...I've only emailed him about the Halloween party.

Thu, Oct. 5th, 2006 06:18 am (UTC)

right! i should do that, huh?

Wed, Oct. 4th, 2006 02:18 pm (UTC)

fuck homecoming.
it's all about monster massive.

Thu, Oct. 5th, 2006 01:34 am (UTC)

Ew, you Monster Massive kids, you remind me of Valencia.

oh god, stfu.

there is absolutely no point in going to homecoming. see a bunch of nigguhs having sex on the dancefloor?
i'd rather sit at home and puke.

I feel the same way about homecoming. Of the Pali cadre, Julian's really the only one who's interested. And now, my only viable date comes straight from a Rodney Dangerfield monologue or something.

Thu, Oct. 5th, 2006 01:36 am (UTC)

Hah! That date must be awesome.

Anyway, if I do go to Pali's homecoming, I'll let you know in advance, because it means you have to go too.

Oh yeah, and mail me my Ziggy Stardust CD, dude! GAH.
