serial fiction through live journal?

well I have been thinking of ways to do a set of serial fiction. doing it through live journal seems like not a bad idea. i mean, I already pay for it and it lets me put up things with date stamp, and it does accept comments which is always nice in the world of serial fiction. hmm. should I?

random blatherings.

Well.... it's four fifty four... i've never so much wanted to sit down to the text of Gemora as I do now. Absence makes the heart grow fonder? that and the fact that I got the new french editions makes me happy. I don't want my children to be like those barely-able to speak / understand english kids in Brooklyn who know nothing but things related to judaism - hence why I'm getting the shas with french commentary.... make them know french if they want to use it. the old joke is : what do you call someone who knows three languages? tri-lingual. two languages? bilingual. one language? american. that won't fly in the davidescu household. hell, i think i might even help Julia learn french just so we can speak it exclusively to our future children so they'll be bilingual from early on, just like I was with Romanian. oh that's a really pleasant thought. i came up with a rule since we went to the ohlel and got so many lubavitcher books : ratio of at least 5 non-lubavitcher books to every one. which means i have a lot of non-lubavitcher books yet to get. that will come with time of course. damnit i can't not write. maria rilke, letters to a young poet, it says it all - and it is free online.
