The NYT's take on Purim, "They tried to kill us. They failed. Let's eat." Purim in Iran a warning for Jews, rather than a celebration of historical allegory? Interesting read.

Interesting and scary. I can say (on a lighter note) that having grown up in a Jewish household I am firmly of the opinion that all holidays and family gatherings (including funerals) require massive infusions of food. You feel happy? Eat. You feel sad? Eat. Wait, did I say a lighter note?

I am convinced that this is where my "Food is love." mindset comes from.

Because in the Jewish household, food is everything. Happy? Sad? Love? Mourning? Celebration?

Eat!

Things at work have sucked butt for the last two weeks. Thanks to our own personal Haman of course. I have missed you. At least I can catch up on Shabbat. :(

Hey Z, yeah you've been busy it seems! I think "personal Haman" fits Richard pretty well, actually. You should make Richardtaschen instead of Hamentaschen this season. ;-)
