What a day. I just got home from _aqualung_'s mother's funeral. It was a long day (and I'm sure a much longer day for him than for me).

The hardest part was probably K'vurah -- the traditional burial. In Jewish custom, family and friends fill in the grave (incidentally, my Mother hates this custom). But, in all honesty, it's supposed to be the hardest part.

I did finally get to meet mystikbabe at Shiv'ah. It's a shame we didn't get to meet under better circumstances.

And now I'm off again -- this time to see n0thingman be officially seated as one of The Co-op's Board Members.
