going well.
Things are going well, I think. My Hebrew comprehension is increasing, partially thanks to the fact that I use the interlinear siddur, and partially through the classes that I take during the day. Mostly thanks to Hashem, of course.

Shabbos was fantastic. Great meal on Friday night, and an even better meal Shabbos lunch. I read the book "Self-Improvement? I'm Jewish!" by Rabbi Abraham Twerski, PhD. Really great book. Another to add to my list of books I would suggest to read. How important it is to look inside and find patterns of self-defeating behavior.

Funny thing : Sandra sent my Harry Potter watch in the mail last week but wanted it to be a surprise. Last week at some point I arbitrarily asked her if my watch was still working. She said she wasn't sure where it was. I persisted, thinking that perhaps she had lost it, and go figure - I ruined the surprise. D'oh! The bad thing is that I'm leaving tomorrow, so if it doesn't come in today's mail, I won't get it until I get back from Cleveland. Double D'oh! For the record, since D'oh is now in the Oxford English Dictionary, I have no problem using it. Well, I mean, I make up words sometimes and have no problem using them - why should I have a problem with an expression that has been in use on a television show for over 14 years? Yeah.

Today is the 10th yartzeit for my grandmother on my mother's side. I'm putting out granola bars for a kiddish type of thing for her. May her neshama have an aliyah.

la musique: : Ben Folds Five - Kate

Re: hi...

Ben Folds Five is amazing. It's too bad they broke up. But that's okay. I forgive.

Love, love the Pearl Jam. Just bought the "Save You" single. Wisely or not so wisely plunked down seventy dollars for the Japan tour. But then, it works out to $12 per show, or $6 per disc which as it includes shipping is quite good, methinks. I won't be getting the whole North American tour on CD for reasons relating to me not being well to do or even having a job at the moment. Heh.

I actually have a username on Synergy but it's been so long since I've used it that, well, it's probably expired and I've *blush* forgotten it.

I hope to see them at least once this tour. If possible. But again - money.

Re: hi...

well i have to join the 10C when i get some dosh...hopefully next month i will join. i really wanted to buy the badges that had each of their faces on them and the caption said 'name each working day after a member of the band and wear them on their day so then you can say "oh look-i have to go the doctors on stone-day"' but they are all sold out! but last night i had a dream and it all became so obvious that all my dreams of seeing PJ live will never come true because i'll never get close to the stage like ive imagined and dreamed...that really got me.

im 'bambi girl' on synergy if you ever come back again.

Interlinear siddurim

partially thanks to the fact that I use the interlinear siddur

Those things drive me batty. Completely. I can't follow them at all. So it's good to hear someone describe a positive experience with them, because Artscroll sure has a lot invested in that new system of theirs.

(fyi, I found your journal by way of a comment you left in beaniekins' journal. Do you mind if I add you to my friends list?)

Re: Interlinear siddurim

Please do indeed add me. Me using the interlinear feels like I'm davening in hebrew with someone whispering the translation in english in my ear.
