Things I Miss and Other Negative Late-Night Thoughts (its only 12:30 but it feels later)

1) No sundays: I said it once and ill say it again, fridays just dont cut it. Stay up late blogging on a saturday night and youll miss davening and morning seder.

2) Lack of snow: Well as of yet us North Americans have been deprieved of winters most important aspect. Imagine that, the year without a winter.

3) No American Football on sunday afternoon. While I'm sitting in shuir learning the wisdom of G-d, many of my fellow Americans have the privilege of enjoying a nice afternoon of beer and football, well I damn well miss that. Well I guess you could say we have this thing called Kadur Regel and all, but it just doesn't quite measure up to the entertainment level of some good ole steroid juiced All-American pigskin chasing. I'm sure many of you will blast my insensitive and US-centric remarks against the worlds favorite game. But guess what? USA, USA, USA....

4) What about Subways?? I know this sounds strange and all, but my New York blood simply can't tolerate living without the musicians in the 42nd street subways (although the musicians in the tunnel under the road between binyane ha-uma and the central bus station in J-town do a nice imitation of the real thing), that indescribable subway smell, the noise of a subway coming down the tunnel, that beeping noise before the doors close, and of course the announcement on the 6 train 68th street, "this is 68th street, Hunter College".

5) Too much edible and non-edible Chicken (we already discussed this one)

6) Those chiloni chicks have this rather divine way of forgetting to put on various articles of clothing when they leave the house. I suppose this an affect of all that Chummus, I hope someone will be kind enough to remind me if I fall victim to such malnutrition. Ok, so I had to add this one in to sound a little frum, you can put this one in the "Things I love about the Holy/not-always-so-Holy Land plot of land" post when I eventually get around to.

7) Israelis like speaking English, perhaps i can learn it by talking to the walls? (people tend to do that at the western wall)

8) I cant IM anyone because I'm sleeping long before y'all come online.

9)........(Jews like complaining)

thanks for answering my questions so quickly! i'm very impressed. what do y'alls (yes, i did just write "y'alls") do for shabbas though? do you have to get placed or does chabad and/or hillel provide meals? or are all of you ny-ers and just go home for shabbas?

dear stranger,

Since I'm a gentile, observing ahabbas is not necessarily a concern of mine.

but what I do know (if memory serves my correctly) is that there are chabbads that do take people in for shabbas.

Most of us are NY-ers so we usually go home for shabbas. Those that are from out of state observe shabbas at the dorms or in their apartments, etc.

Moshe, if you miss all these things (which in a stange way I can uunderstand) may I propose a suggestion?

COME BACK TO NEW YORK!

on behalf of the Punks of Zion and Hillel, I would like to say that we miss our littlest Punk.

(Funny this should be coming from me considering the fact that physically I am the shortest Punk.)

dear stranger,

at queens college and brooklyn college, most of the students live in the area around the school. so one a month, i know, they do a hillel dinner.

since hunter is in the city, and few people live anywhere near it, hunter hillel does not do that (although we should totally organize a shabbaton or something - with MAN HUNT!!!).

most of us stay home for shab. or, go to friends. if you're in the dorms, shab kind of sucks. actually, it really sucks.

but you shouldn't count on being in the dorms, unless you already got in. it's really hard, and you have to bascially sell your soul or blackmail pamala birthright.
