It's that time of year

I didn't get a chance to wish everyone a happy new year before it became 5764. Have I mentioned that it's been busy? :) So, to steal from cellio...

We are now in the Ten Days of Repentance, the period of time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur when we go into overdrive to try to repair any damaged relationships we have with each other.

If there is anything which I did over the past year which hurt or upset you, please let me know. If you want to discuss it publically, please leave a comment below; if you'd like to discuss it privately, send me email (address is in my profile).

I will do my best to make amends and make right anything which I have done wrong.

I don't promise that I can. But I do promise that I will try.

You haven't played enough games.
I still have your deluxe Illuminati set, and I'm holding it hostage until you make amends :-)

Hmmm, should have got you one of the "Shalom Y'all" T-shirts I saw in New Orleans.

That much I knew. I also don't have enough hours in the day, or days in the week. :( I tried to move closer, I did I did!

Worse comes to worse, that'll be your housewarming present. :)

Speak for yourself. He's gone at a minimum one evening a week for gaming. His wife would like to see him game less, not more.

Karl did speak for himself. See my reply to Arthur's comment below.

Judaism: 5764, Christianity: 2003.

You guys are kicking our butts. We need to score more in the second half.

And that goes for you too, I'm holding your Buffy game hostage.

I did finally find the missing piece -- what was it again, Werewolf Oz?

Anyway, as I said elsewhere, there's a good chance Rocky Horror will be going to one night a week (Saturday) instead of two come November. If so, I'll have Fridays free again -- or, at least, Rocky-free.

(I don't think this has been officially announced to the cast yet; but I don't think any of them are likely to be reading this. There may be some uproar; me, I have a much lower Rocky-threshhold than many of them (including my wife) so I'm perfectly fine with it.)

Once October is over
I should have a Sunday free so that I can attend. I've wanted to go; it just hasn't been possible yet. Now that the equinox has passed, it's dark early enough that there are no concerns about getting ready on time.

Halloween weekend ought to be a good time to go.

Re: Once October is over
Your idea has merit. November 1 it is, assuming I'm not working 1st thing the next morning. Hmm...and I should soon be working fewer Sundays...

Re: Once October is over
What happens two days later dear? Maybe I want my husband that weekend. Maybe that is NOT a good weekend for you to be going to Rocky.

Quiddich or Armageddon?
Something tells me it'll be a while before the Quaffle is caught.

Muggle thou art as well, Art. Snitch.

I can see why Rowling didn't call it the Golden Snatch. That would have just caused endless trouble.

Re: Quiddich or Armageddon?
Sorry. I had Sneetches in my head from the girl who had stars on her chest at Rocky last weekend.

Re: Quiddich or Armageddon?
I would have thought you had a better reason for thinking of Sneeches.

Sneeches only have one star. I'm guessing this girl had two?

Re: Quiddich or Armageddon?
By the end of the cartoon, when things got chaotic, I believe some Sneeches had multiple stars.

And yes, she had two.

Like Karl, my only complaint is not seeing much of you. Unlike Karl, I place a lot of that blame on myself.
sethcohen
Sep. 30th, 2003 06:27 pm (UTC)
I place no blame
Like myself (and Karen), you (and Vanessa) have had a busy year.
Moving. Getting engaged. Getting married. Being newlywed.
Unlike me, you've started doing Rocky again. This fills up more of your weekends.
Like you, I will soon be working mostly in the mornings. I don't know that this will free up any time to be more social during weekdays, but I can hope.
Karl I can see more of once he finally owns a car. Since I won't drive on Fridays, and he can't (until he has a car) this has been somewhat of a sticking point...

A Sweet New Year to you and Karen! Sorry it's late, but I'm a Gentile, so that's my excuse :-)

We don't see enough of each other, but that is what happens when you're 4 hours away from someone. When we are all less busy, we should fix that *hug*

Less busy?
Thanks for the regards! :)

Yeah, I was already commiserating with Monica about the distance. My limitations on weekend travel options also causes difficulties. I don't expect anything to become less restrictive, so the ball is really in my court to try to sort things out.

Part of the problem recently lies in the fact that work schedules are once again not being offered with much lead time. We'll see if this improves. Certainly after October 19th, we run out of any more big Jewish holidays for the rest of the calendar year.

Despite being a fairly agnostic Jew, I thought this was a wonderful and courageous thing to do on your LJ.

Thanks much. I didn't link to the original person who came up with the formula (although cellio did) so I can't take credit for all of those positive qualities you ascribe to me. But I try. :)

L'shana tova! May the best of the last year be the worst of the next.
