    This just blew me away. She has no solid structure in terms of home because her career causes her to travel constantly. Instead, she experiences “home” as being part of the Jewish community.

  6. Just been out of it, like this…

    Census Guy: Are you employed?

    Man: Yes. Part of the time.

    Census Guy: Ah, you work Part Time. How many days a week?

    Man: Every day. Just..part of the day…from 9 to 5.

    Census Guy: So you work a full day!

    Man: I wouldn’t say that. There are huge chunks of time..at night..where I’m just asleep. Sometimes for..HOURS. It’s ridiculous!*

  8. Finals week, especially during the Fall semester flu season, is very painful

    "Wait a minute," she said to her Writer Voice, "Why did you wake me up at 2AM?"

    "You have a lot to write. And it’s due tomorrow."

    "But Chanukkah gelt, post-shabbos fuel, and Irish Breakfast tea are not sufficient to keep me writing into the wee hours of morning!"

    "Obviously, they are," said Writer Voice, checking his watch, "It just reached 5:30AM. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have more writing to do."

  9. Amount of pages due Monday: 20. Got 9.

  10. Happy Thanksgivukkah 2013! Never again for another 76,000 years.The only way it could be a more propitious time is if it fell within two shabbatot, and if that happened on top of the overlap with Thanksgiving and tevet rosh chodesh, I just wouldn’t know what haftarah to read anymore. Health to you all!
