No offense to perennial favorite Sefirat Ha-Homer, but my pick for numerical Omer-counting obsession this year is the “Movie Lover’s Omer Counter” over at BangItOut. (They also have a “Sports’-Lovers Omer Counter,” but I’m more interested in and amused by the movie-based counter…)

Today is apparently Fifteen Minutes days, which is Two Towers weeks and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest days to the Omer. Be sure to scroll back to previous patchworks, including #13, which was Friday the 13th days, which is One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest weeks and the Sixth Sense of the Omer. And given that I love #16, too. (“Jake Ryan? But he’s a senior…”)
Best. Omer Counter. Ever. But I still forgot. Stupid Omer math.
