So we’re a mega-blog now (according to Jewsweek)? Did I really say that we offer “a glimpse into the future of mainstream Judaism?” Wow. What hubris! That Town Crier dude was right, speaking only for myself, I may indeed have a pole up my rumpuss. I have no idea why we get the attention we do (really, Lisa – no idea, I swear). I mean friggin Esther is a star as far as I’m concerned, but she’s a relatively recent addition. Michael’s writing is always entertaining, and even when he doesn’t write, the mess of his life always gives me a chuckle (anyone in Jerusalem need an experienced and reliable house sitter btw?). Laya always surprises me with the depth and sensitivity she demonstrates on her posts – I mean you look at the blonde hair, then read what she writes and it just doesn’t make sense… I am TheMiddle’s biggest fan, even if I don’t always agree with him – his insight and fastiduousness are always awe inspiring, even if he gets cranky sometimes. Muffti I just kinda feel sorry for and I hope his work on Jewlicious will qualify him for a job as a naked houseboy once he gets his PhD in Philosophy this year. Sorry, that’s Doctor Houseboy … And me? I am SOOOO nobody – a simple Moroccan Jew who knows shit from shinola. So like, who cares what we have to say? Why are you here? I know Lisa eloquently explains the blog thing in general when she stated:
To get a true picture, you have to read what ordinary people on the ground – people who write honestly and who are not being paid for expressing their thoughts and opinions or censored by an editor – are seeing and thinking.
But I don’t know. I never really did. I am just going to assume it’s because of the pretty pictures and occasional flash of cheesecake. Thanks for putting up with me – and I extend that thanks to my fellow posters who I occassionally annoy, my fellow bloggers who I often annoy and you guys who keep coming back. Well, anyways, I am off to celebrate
Buy Nothing Day the Sabbath. Shabat Shalom!
P.S. Thanks for the plug Alli! Come back to us!
