Thanks Man!

At the recent GA in Nashville, our duly empowered Jewlicious Agents distributed Thanksgiving postcards to all the Super-Jews in attendance. The front was a nice graphic reminding folks of our upcoming Festival (Feb. 29th, Long Beach, California!) and the back included a list of things we here at Jewlicious are thankful for. OK well, the fact is that we slapped this thing together uh… rather quickly, rushed it over by FedEx to Nashville, inadvertently sent it to a Kinkos like a zillion miles away from the Gaylord Opryland, whatever. Suffice it to say that with all the attendant craziness, the final list of stuff we were thankful for was less than a representative list. This would explain the inclusion of things like Arak Limonada and Shakshuka (ahem), as well as Slivovitz and I think Geffilte fish. What other list has both Amy Winehouse and Rambam? I don’t know… I may have been drunk. Deepthroat was definitely suffering from acute GA induced malnutrition. Rabbi Yo… well, I’m pretty sure he was sober and well fed. In a moment of clarity someone sent me this cutsie, saccharine list in my email which I clearly hardly never read:

“I’m thankful I met Estie at Jewlicious last year”
-Estie’s fiancé

“I’m thankful I learned how to choose the best kiddush wine at Jewlicious Festival.”
-Eric

“I’m thankful that my son went to Jewlicious Festival and learned how to make the beautiful challah bread we’re eating tonight.”
-Justin’s mom

“I’m thankful Jewlicious Festival is only three months from now! I’m already counting down the days.”

Happy Thanksgiving from Jewlicious

OK, kinda corny I know. Think you can do better? Go on then. Let us know what or who inspired Jewlicious thankfulness in you this year. Leave it in the comments section which will act as a Forward 50 type listing for the rest of us… and uh Happy Thanksgiving from this Israeli/Canadian/Moroccan Jew.

  • Always thankful to read the posts and (most of) the comments here at Jewlicious. Keep up the great work and Happy Thanksgiving.

  • I’m thankful to have a great program, Itza Mitzva, in Chicago born out of fighting with ck. And to have traveled to Israel this year to work on said program with jewlicious bloggers.

  • I am thankful for your publishing Dov Charney’s email address just recently.

    I contacted him and we have been on a short date that went very well, and are trying to arrange our schedules to make a second date, which if he can make it, he will have a very good date!

  • I am thankful for the Jewlicious automatic spammers audi, barcelona, italy, etc., who by their “comments” direct me to previous posts I never would have read. It’s fun in a woo woo, random kind of way!

    Oh, and I’m thankful for all of you real people, too! Happy Thanksgiving!

  • I’m thankful to Laura Solomon our able designer who on a moments notice jumped into action to make this card. Meanwhile I was already on my way out of town to Santa Monica – Eli who was there at the GA, and unreachable, had high hopes we would get the cards there. Not so simple. The Kinkos we sent it to ended up being closed on Sunday! Local Kinkos would not print this in time. The one in downtown Nashville said they could do it! Thanks Roosevelt (manager of the store).

    So I am also so thankful to ck and Eli for coming up with a coherent list, Eli for pushing us to get this out.

    But most of all, I am thankful for all the love here on Jewlicious.com and the opportunity to publish and be read.

    Thank you all, thank you Hashem, and Go Lions!

  • Uh, ck, I made up those quotes. Not to be printed/published. We were supposed to go to people and ask them what they were thankful for about Jewlicious. Oops…
