fast day, mmmm....

Ah, a fast day. The Fast of Gedaliah to be precise, which is funny because that's my hebrew name. Yep, while everyone else gets all sorts of fun stuff they share a name with, I share the name with some guy who got killed thus leading to the total Babylonian exile and a fast being in honor of the person who got killed.

Rosh Hashanah was a barrel of laughs. I just wish that there had been more actually observant people and not just people who drove there and did all kinds of things like using the sliding doors and the like. If my mother and I could stay there and refrain from "all manners of work" (well, my mother gave into temptation and used the coffee maker and turned the lights on and off, perhaps just to bother me) but for the most part we were good. The food was so good that I think I gained a few pounds. But worry not, for today is a fast day.
