The Kosher-Vegetarian-Academic Post!

I had written an entire post about going vegetarian this week and visiting the kosher dining hall (finally), but Blogger sucks and just lost my post, which, might I add, was beautifully written. So I'll just say a couple things and maybe elaborate next week: there's a nifty sink for ritual hand-washing, which I think is awesome; the food is good; they give you paper/plastic everything for assured kosher-ness!; one meal is meat, the other is dairy, so as a veggie, this doesn't bode well for me eating there every week; it takes about 15 minutes on a bus to get from here to there, which stinks. I also managed to go to the gym this past week after a random urge to do so. I'm calling my move to vegetarianism (plus a bit o' fish), which started randomly on Monday, as well as my gym excursion spontaneous healthful living.

In other, unrelated, news, I'm going to New York this weekend with Evan for a Yankees game (on Shabbat, argh). We are, however, going to a (conservative) shul in West Hartford tonight, so that has me all sorts of stoked. And now, to tie up the week and before bidding everyone a Shabbat Shalom, I give you some of the juicy goodness that I've been working on over the past week. Prepare for academic drooling (I sent my thoughts to the prof last night, so ... we'll see) behind this link. Yes, it's stuff I've been writing/working on. So enjoy it. I tried to post it here but Blogger is being a total pain in my tuches today.

So be well, and Shabbat shalom!

I hate it when a post disappears like that!
That's one of the reasons I use scribefire . . .
I have several friends in West Hartford.

Remind me when I see you on Monday or Tuesday to tell you about the Willimantic Co-Op. My daughter is a vegetarian and it has been a VERY useful resource for us as we've learned to cook to match her needs.

I got here from Kosher Academic's blog and am just curious: one thing that would be very hard for me about the kosher dorm that you describe is the thought of all of that paper and plastic going into the landfill. But as I type, I am thinking about the water from washing all those dishes. Do you have environmental thoughts about it all?

Mottel: I'll have to look into scribefire. I also have Windows Live Writer, but I always forget about it.

Becca: I will remind you! Though, not having a car, I don't get around much.

GJ: I think about that, yes. It's sort of deciding the lesser of two evils, I guess. But what can you do? I mean, I could bring my own plate or something, or they could provide kashered plates/silverware, but it's just a lot of work. I dunno. Thanks for coming by, though :)
