L'Shanah Tovah!


As I usually do at this time of year, I will be heading to Fort Lauderdale to visit with my father for the High Holidays. Dan and I will be enjoying sunny Florida, where it's 90 degrees, sticky and humid. It's actually a terrible time to be leaving Virginia, with the elections and all. But the Jewish holidays have been around for far longer than Virginia's off-year gubernatorial elections, so I'm off to see my 96 year old dad.

This year, I have a brand new iPod to play with. It will keep me connected to Virginia, the blogs, and my email. And I finally broke down and signed up for Twitter, which is now on my sidebar. I'm not sure how much I'll actually tweet, since my reason for going to Florida is to visit with my dad, not micro-blog. But look for brief, dyspeptic complaints about the airport, at least. And probably comments about some of my weirder relatives.


When you are part of a family of New York Jews, Pittsburgh Polish Catholics and Florida evangelicals, every holiday is fraught.


I'll be back next week!

Bwana,

Do I detect a bit of schaedenfreude? I actually got it as a reward for a job promotion. I originally wanted a netbook. I've never owned a laptop and got tired of not being connected when I travel. But with a netbook, I still had to have a cellphone. The iPhone was a much better deal and Mark Warner/Tim Kaine had nothing to do with it.

Just a little luck at work and finding the best deal.)

Of course not...I could never experience something I can barely spell! I leave schadenfreude to Lowell...you know he's getting testy over at Blueva when he starts dabbling in obscenties to describe the political developments...
