Nothing like having a birthday on Erev Yom Kippur. Almost as much fun as having your birthday on Yom Kippur. Ayn ma la’asot (nothing you can do about it)…happens every few years. And I’m not going to stress about it, people, because there are much bigger problems in the Middle East. I don’t want to freak anybody out but if you haven’t heard, there’s a monster on the loose in Jerusalem. In fact, so great is the fear struck in the hearts of the locals, they’ve already named a street after him.
I hope they’re not waiting to fix all the menus first…
And now, my birthday wish, my loyal readers: if you have ever laughed at this blog even once (but hopefully more), I ask that you leave a comment at the bottom. What does this blog mean to you? Is it good for Israel? Is it just funny? Has it helped anyone make aliyah, adjust, or look at Israel in a different way? This feedback (testimonials, references, whatever you want to call it) will be really helpful when I approach people in the future about possible shows, articles, book deals, chumus wrestling, etc. If you’re shy, you can leave an anonymous comment. (See Maya’s comment below for a great example.)
I know a lot of people have visited this site over the last few years and laughed. If all you nice, quiet readers would like to make your first comment ever, here’s your best chance to do so.
So gmar chatima tova and I’m off to look for something fun before the fast.
