Goofy Rosh Hashana stuff

Okay, I can see eating something sweet on Rosh Hashana to have a sweet year.
I've been told that you should avoid sleeping during the daytime on Rosh Hashana to avoid having a sleepy year. I think that's silly.

This is could get really out of hand. That's why I'm asking you, the silly people I know, to give me a list of things I should or should not do to help this coming year be good. Talk amongst yourselves.

Let's see... You're already staying away from work for the holidays; one can only hope that this does not make you unemployed for the coming year.

Spending the time happy and healthy around people you love is probably the best serious suggestion I could make. Whatever you do or eat is probably of lesser importance to how you do it and who you did it with.

Of course, a rousing game of Give Me The Brain couldn't hurt your chances to be even more intelligent in the coming year...

Hehehehe

I have nothing intelligent to add. I am suffering from having given up my brain for gestational purposes, but that was damned funny.

I am allowing my wife to use a portion of my brain while hers is given up to gestational processing. This means that both of us are at reduced capacity, but at least we both are able to maintain certain minimal operating standards (e.g. walking and chewing gum concurrently).

Well, being as my brain was already at a much higher capacity than my husband's, I don't think it would benefit either of us for me to use part of his while pregnant.

Of course, that could just be because he a) is American, b) went to Towson, or c) is a big ol' doof.

I suspect (b) might be the primary cause.

AHA. And where did you go?

Rhode Island College.

But I spent a lot of time in Towson, with Goucher and Towson U students, back in the mid 90s.

Then you may very well know him.

Did he ever go to Rocky Horror?

(And what would Seth's coming year be like if he did that this weekend?)

The Horror! The Horror!
My year would be filled with freaks. And possibly Transylvanians. Not that there's any change with either of those, mind you.

OK, but you can only wear gefilte fish nets.

He says "Yeah, why?" But he doesn't figure he'd know anyone from then who went to Rocky Horror.

And if Seth did that, the coming year would be... uh. Lingerie and incest filled. I'm not certain I'd want to know him, then.

I was in the cast. So he's probably seen me, even if I've never seen him.

Okay. Character?

I was Magenta. But not here, in Calgary.

All of them.

Hmph. Jack of all trades, master of none. I also did Columbia once or twice, but I'm rather fond of my nipples staying in my pajamas.

At different times I've specialized in different parts, and played others occasionally; over time, I've played them all.

I was in for a real surprise one time when I went in to perform. A guy I had gone to high school with showed up to replace the usual Rocky. In gold lame underwear. I hadn't seen him in a few years, and only with clothes on. It was an interesting show.

And if Seth did that, the coming year would be...

...a coming year in more ways than one.
