Moving Sucks!

Moving Sucks Big Time! Especially when you own as much crap as I do. Even more especially when you are only moving 3 blocks from where you started. You keep thinking you aren't really moving cause its only a 3 minute walk, but oh no, you still gotta collect a ton of boxes, pack up all your stuff, hire movers, take off a day of work, sit on your butt for 10 hours waiting for the movers to arrive, fall asleep waiting, get pissed and go to party, get tipsy, wake up at 2 am to puke, then give in and call a different mover to come the next day. Thats right folks, my movers really were too good to be true. Heres my yesterday: I woke up at 6 am to finish packing, called at 8 am to confirm my 10 am move, was told they'd be there between 12 and 1, 1 came and went, tried to call them but they wouldn't answer my calls, fell asleep at 3, woke up at 4, called from my roommates phone, they answer on the second ring, berate them for not answering my calls, am told the truck just broke down, not given a reason for why the newly broken down truck at 4 pm affected my 10 am move, told they'll be there at 8, I said 8 is too late, they said fine then 7, waited until 8:30, called another mover I found on Craig's List and set up my move for tonight at 6:30, went to Lamb's going away party, drank too many Mike's Hard Lemonades, came home, passed out, woke up to puke (more out of my annoying day then the alcohol), woke up for work, wrote on my blog. Will let you know how tonight goes. Okay, must get lunch. Peace out bros!

So we have this Washington Heights website where everyone posts announcements on one of the Message Boards. There is boards for apartments, events, classifieds, etc. So for some strange reason this random chick posted on Maalot Everything, the catch-all for random posts, a GREAT DATE PLACE!!! The whole post consists of her fired up description of this random Starbucks in Jersey City that we should all shlep our coffee dates to. A)theres a Starbucks on my corner, make that every corner in the city, B)who the hell wants to go to Jersey, period, and C) does she own part of the franchise? She describes it as if its some enchanted palace. She even suggests hopping on the PATH train with your date to get there. Thats pushing it way too far in my book. I'm going to get to the bottom of this! Who is this woman and why is she trying to get us to this faraway place. Are there cameras there to record the Shidduch Date Phenomenon? There must be an ulterior motive involved. Anyone else freaked out by the post? Let me know. In the meantime, I'm happy picking up my Caramel Machiatto, or my Light Coffee Frappachino, or my Orange Herbal Tea in my neighborhood Starbucks. Want to join me?

My First Reader

Had lunch yesterday with someone who mentioned they checked out my blog. Excellent, I officially have one reader. Zehava, I hope thats not too much pressure. I expect you to tune in daily. Maybe I'll even keep it updated. If you're lucky.

Blow Shofar?


Enter the National Jewish Outreach Program's First-Ever Great Shofar Blast-Off!

Are you the best shofar blower in the America?

As anyone who has tried knows, blowing the shofar is no easy task. Who is the Greatest American Shofar Blower? Who produces the clearest sound? The longest note? The most traditionally accurate blast?

The National Jewish Outreach Program wants to find out, and is inviting shofar-blowers from across the country to enter National Jewish Outreach Program's first-ever "Great Shofar Blast-Off!"

Contest will be held in Herald Square (in front of Macy's) on September 22.

All entries must be postmarked by August 31st.

Contestants must submit a Video or DVD. Audio tape entries will not be accepted.

Rules and Entry Forms can be found on our website at http://www.NJOP.org

Grand Prize is a Trip for Two to Israel!

So if there is someone that blows the shofar every year in your shul, if you are the shofar blower every year at the local hospital or nursing home, or if there is anyone else you think deserves the recognition, please let them know about our upcoming contest. The rules and more information can be found on our website at http://www.njop.org/html/shofar.html. If you have any additional questions feel free to email shofar@njop.org. Please forward to any Rabbi or person in other communities that you think would appreciate the info. Good Luck!!!

Japanese IQ Test

Japanese IQ Test
This is mad hard. I cheated, and even then it was hard:
Click on the link (It will come up in Japanese writing.) T
HEN Click on the BLUE circle. Apparently, this is an IQ test given to job applicants in Japan. "Everybody has to cross the river".
The following rules apply:
* Only 2 people on the raft at a time.
* The father cannot stay with any of the daughters without their mother's presence.
* The mother cannot stay with any of the sons without their father's presence.
* The thief (striped shirt) cannot stay with any family member if the Policeman (in the cap) is not there.
* Only the Father, Mother and the Policeman know how to operate the raft.
To start, click on the BIG BLUE CIRCLE on the right side of the screen. To move the people, click on them. To move the raft, click on the pole on the opposite side of the river. HAVE FUN!!!!
