It's Getting Hot in Here ...

I'm watching television and on the show, it's snowing. Why can't it be snowing here? Instead, it's 80 degrees in Tuvia's house because a mouse chewed through some wires, shorting something, and burning out the motor. We are old school. We are primitive. We are ... air conditioner-less! Good thing we're not going to be here over Shabbos and most of Sunday!

In other hot and spicy news, I'm here to let my faithful readers know that a blog post about my journey to Orthodoxy has been posted over at the Frum From Rebirth blog. Now, don't get your panties in a twist by the post -- it's a very quick look at the past six years of my life, and there are lots of spots that I could write book chapters of detail about. Just read it for what it is, a frame in the movie of my life.

So read, enjoy, and have a good Shabbos!

My air-conditioner runs 24/7. Usually on 64 degrees. Bad for the environment? Absolutely. Good for my mental and perspirational health? Absolutely.

Can't wait to read the guest entry.

But I'm really here because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your image. Rather apocalyptic, don't you think? Can I use it, too? -- I'd like it for my office door.

This is crazy, but I swear you used to post on the Indie Jews group on LiveJournal ages ago. That is where I first heard of you.

Then as the years kind of went on I kept noticing the occasional viral video on YouTube or something written by you somewhere. I guess because unlike a lot of us bloggers you weren't ever afraid of disclosing your photo and you have a pretty recognizable face.

I never realized you blossomed into this JBlogosphere icon. That's really cool.

Just wanted to say mazal tov and I think it's great how you share your spiritual journey with the world.

80 degrees isn't hot, that is what you call tropical.

@Kate I'm all about mental stability. Luckily, the A/C man came today and fixed the problem! For a chunk o'change :\

@KosherAcademic You are obsessed with my image, and that makes me happy. Thanks for posting it on Facebook, heh.

@Gili Whoa, that IS crazy. You made me smile with your comment, you know. It's been so long since I actively LJ'd, but that community was where I met a long-term boyfriend (no longer a bf, but still) and where I really acquainted myself with a lot of hip indie Jewish stuff :) How'd you find my blog here, btw?

@Jack It was hot. When you're in a box-like room and there's no A/C and the temperature creeps from 78 to 79 to 80 to 81 in a span of maybe a half hour? That's HOT HOT HEAT.

Saw a photo of you with your name and then I Googled it, at which point this blog was only a click away.

Anachnu garim b'olam katan! :)

I keep finding all these cool Jewish bloggers, and I want to share my blog but I am too ashamed of it.

Oh well.
