04:55 pm - Waiting for something to happen?
Too much going on to write about. I hate it when that happens.
I loved being there with Harriet. There's something special about going to pray with people you care about instead of sorta alone.
I did the things I intended to do. I asked for the things I want. And I will keep asking until either a) I get them or b) I don't want them anymore.
I think I was doing okay until they brought out (what I think is) a Holocaust Torah. They made a big circuit around and through the seats (all of them. And there were a lot of them) carrying this Torah while the choir sang this wicked creepy version of Ani Ma'amin (I will wait). It had a gothic Gregorian chant vibe going for it. I whispered to myself, "I don't think I can do this again."
Between services they had a class taught by a guy who seemed like he would be right at home teaching kindergarten. I'm not saying the class was bad, it wasn't. It was sorta interesting, but his manner of speaking was definitely down. "Now children, this word can mean all these things. What does it mean to you?"
Like I said, it wasn't all bad, but it's not my first choice for a religious experience.

lizzylizzy who runs the bead store in Lowell graciously offered to help me with a gift for my mother-in-law this week, so yea!
I won the poker tournement that anjillmarie's husband ran this weekend. There were 7 of us, so that means I didn't totally suck. It's different for us because we normally play limit hold-em. The advantage to this was everyone really had to pay attention. The disadvantage is that we moved away from the chip values that were working for us for a more real world set of values. (Normally we play 5, 10, 20 and this time we played 5, 25, 50, 100, 500)
Anyway, it all just means I didn't get to finish the book I was reading. Maybe over this next holiday.
Brian gave away Simon, but we're still getting Toby, this week.
Next week who knows?
Rocker and hoppie want to see Serenity. I don't think I do. All the spoilers I have seen point to me not wanting to go and see what is reported to happen.
I just realized I forgot to read Harry Potter this weekend. Hrm. That's not like me. Maybe I'll read Chapter 12 tomorrow.

I loved Serenity but I agree, you probably do not want to see it.

I think that Torah was recovered out of some Nazi museum stash after the war, or something like that. It's supposedly originally from a town called Kolin (not sure I'm spelling that right). Usually it lives in a glass case in the lobby (it's too damaged to be used), but they bring it out at appropriate moments. I think I was around ten or eleven when they got it.
My mother was also glad to have you there.
As for Serenity, it might piss you off (possibly even for the same reasons it pissed me off), but in my humble opinion it's still worth seeing what they did with a movie budget.
