This one's for Allah Sulu

Yesterday, Karen and I caught a movie (The Life of David Gale - a pretty good flick) and then went to grab some food. We went to a local pizza joint and enjoyed their cuisine.

After finishing, I went up to the counter to get a box to take home the remaining pizza...and standing there was Harold. I've kvelled before about the quality of his Purim seudah from last year...and conveniently, I was even wearing a button he approved of:

"Vodka corrupts. Absolut vodka corrupts absolutly." So I gave it to him. :)

Obviously I'm still not hanging around enough Jews... care to translate this for a curious shiksa? ;)

Re:
Aah.

To kvell is to speak glowingly, as in, "My son Harvey was accepted into Harvard. Naturally, as you would expect for one of his genius." :)

A seudah is the festive meal one eats on Purim (and if I were functioning better, I might be able to tell you more). Harold's seudot are legendary, and guests sometimes require legal or medical help afterwards. :)

Pizza: a traditional Jewish food, second only to pot stickers. :) :) :)

Thanks! :)

I'd heard of "kvetch", but not "kvell". And I had no idea what "seudah" was...

Re:
Kvell is Yiddish. Seudah is Hebrew. Vodka is tasty. Your ability to speak in tongues is enhanced by it. :)

Hence why I worship at the altar of allah_sulu. :)

Um.
Well, I meant "worship" in the figurative sense of course. :)

True. He does have Belle, after all. (Or, one could say that she has him...)

And something tells me you're not actually giving up Catholicism for worship of Allah Sulu. Can't for the life of me guess where that comes from...

Re: Um.
Nah, 'cuz I already gave up Catholicism before! Well, not totally. I became a Lutheran before I got married, which is kind of like Catholic Lite. :)

I still observe some of the more Catholic stuff like abstaining from meat on Fridays during Lent. Like today. :)

Heh. I watched a taped Buffy rerun last night where Anya complained about keeping up with the times...she wasn't yet used to Lutherans. :)

I can't decide if I'm scared or if I want to go join them.

Re: Um.
If you join them, you'll be on the Murgatroid next. Be very afraid.

Re: Um.
If you haven't heard me or Storvik sing, then your 'wanting to join them' is valid. If you have heard us sing, then you're outta your freakin' mind.

I can't remember if I've ever heard Storvik sing, although I'm usually drunk during those times...

Re: Um.
...being drunk would enhance your memory of the experience.

Heard Leonard Nimoy sing? He sings better than Storvik. Hrm...should that have gone unsaid?

Ahem.
To be more acurate, a seudah is a festive meal. I do not believe it must be Purim to be a seudah.

In the case of a Purim Seudah, there is much eating, much drinking and much merriment. It is suggested that one should be sufficiently inebriated that he or she is unable to discern the difference between Haman (boo! hiss!) and Mordechai (yay Mordechai!), but not so inebriated that one might transgress the mitzvot (commandments).
