Happy New Year!

Happy Rosh Hashanah to everyone!

For those of you who don't know, Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, so happy New Year to all of my friends out in cyber-land!

On Rosh Hashanah, it is customary for Jewish people to contact their friends and loved ones (and even those we dislike) and apologize for any transgressions we may have caused, even inadvertantly throughout the year. Here are some of the responses I recieved from my loving, wonderful friends:


"What did you do?"


and my favorite:

"So you're telling me you're apologizing for being a Jew?"

Yeah...It's been a long night!

Luckily, some really crazy people have been coming in the past week, so I have plenty of stories in draft. Also, next week I will be posting a "Strip Club Dictionary" because I noticed in some of the comments that a few of you were confused with my lingo. Should be funny trying to explain what "titty tape" and "cutting the string" are...

So, until Monday, happy Rosh Hashanah, eat some apples dipped in honey (so the new year will be sweet and fruitful) and take care!

Happy New Year to you too!

Wasn't expecting this- dumbass Aussie like me... They don't move New Years around for us, coz otherwise we can't keep track of it.

Hmmm. Usually I wait until Yom Kippur to atone for my sins...but good thing you're getting a head start!

Re: Anonymous:
The way I was raised we atone on Rosh Hashannah to our friends and family, and then we do the "body of water/bread" thing the next morning. Then we spend the next ten days contemplating and atoning for our own personal sins, all leading to Yom Kippur to fast and atone with God and ask for guidance in the new year.
