DH tracking

I'm not. You know why I'm not? Because there's nothing to track. It's been delivered to what I assume are FedEx's headquarters in Brooklyn, and it's sitting. And I will know no more about it until I get it sometime tomorrow.

I expect to get it early in the morning, but if I don't, I'll probably just go to synagogue, and then to lunch with friends on our block. Even if I do get it, and so skip shul, I will put it down around 11:30 or so and go on to our friends'.

What's cute is that the kids next door are already bugging me to tell them who dies. If they could, they'd go to a midnight party. So would I. Ah, well.

I do understand why they're doing it this way - honestly, Friday night is, for the vast, vast majority of people, the best night for this.

But it doesn't mean I don't feel a tad left out.


Am I allowed to remind you that we have Shabbos and that by itself is something better than any book? Or do I sound too much like a right wing nut?

You're absolutely right, of course. I wouldn't trade Shabbat for anything. That's what's stopping me from violating it in this way - not just because it's a mitzvah, but also because losing Shabbat would be dreadful all by itself.

But sometimes I'm a small child who doesn't want to be left out. Which is why I go nuts in December. I'm not proud of it, but there it is.
