Life update

Well, since both pghwob and lilostitch have expressed their concern that I haven't been updating my LJ much lately, I thought I'd sit down and write something for a change.

Life has pretty much been work lately. The POS project that I've been working on got delayed -- we were supposed to go live on September 20th, but pushed the date back to October 10th. Now the six day weeks are over with, which is good for my sanity, but not so good for my paycheck. Ah well. I knew the overtime wasn't going to last forever.

In recent news, Rosh Hashana is upon us. I spent Friday night and Saturday day in Synagogue, and by "Synagogue" I mean one of the classrooms at the local UU church. The congregation that my friend Adam introduced me to last year has moved from the Friends Meeting House to the UU church. It's a little weird to be going to services in a church, but hey -- unlike basically everyone else, their services are free, and they're liberal enough that the sermons tend to talk about things like politics and tolerance.

Last night was the big Rosh Hashana dinner at my parents' house. This year it was not just me and my parents, but Gayle, Lynne, my Great Aunts and Uncle, and one of my mothers' cousins as well. True to form, my mother managed to accidentally poison me with "oh, I'm sure it's vegan" food (um, nope, not vegan), and the night ended with Gayle in tears and Lynne complaining about my Dad. I just stood out in the middle of the street and smoked.

And speaking of smoking, I had set October 1st in my brain (and on my quitmeter) as my target date for quitting smoking. Unfortunately, I had set that date thinking that the POS project would be done by then, and, as I stated above, that's no longer the case. Now I'm wondering whether it's wise to try to quit again while I'm in the midst of this farschtinkeneh project. I still haven't decided.

I find it inexplicably hilarious that one of your tags is "jew"

Well, at least you didn't catch the typo.

I have since corrected the reference to "the sex day weeks."

I saw that, actually, and thought "what kind of job do they have HER working?!" I found it funny enough to not point out ;)

Shanah Tova!

I miss hanging out with you. I can't wait until you're done with this POS stuff. You haven't seen me in my "new waitrer threads". (You're not the only one who hasn't posted in a while. I'm a week and a half behind.)

I did the Shul thing Friday night and Sunday morning. The rain scared me off Saturday. I wimped out - not wanting to ruin my suit biking in the rain (which ended a little after nine). Sunday was better since Conservatives don't blow Shofar on Shabbat. My folks are in London visiting my uncle and other assorted family, so we didb't do anything worth noting

I miss hanging out with you too. My schedule's just been completely upside down lately. But as soon as this project is over, I should have my life back again.

The place I went blew the shofar, and had some lengthy explanation for why, the gist of which really boiled down to "cause we wanna."
