02:58 pm - Shaliach Mitzvah fulfilled
There's no longer anything holding me to this life. I've fulfilled all of my pledged charitable contributions. So there.

Edit: Since wikipedia doesn't have an entry for "shaliach mitvah" I feel like I should define it.

There's an idea that you won't die while in the process of carrying out a Mitzvah. To that end, people who are traveling are often given a dollar for charity. The idea is the the recipient, now being the process of giving charity, is protected by the dollar.

In DC this weekend, my homegirl Nechama gave me such a dollar to bring back to Boston with me. Little did she know I was already protected by not having paid off my blogathon debt. Anyway, I added the mitzvah dollar to my blogathon payoff and now I'm entirely without mitzvah to protect me. So now is not the time for me to cross the street without looking both ways.

So sorry, you're totally "mitzvah" ize as far as I am concerned.

You are my main and most recent reference for gainful employment in our chosen field. Without you around to say nice things about me and my work habits, I won't get a good paying job. Without a good paying job, I can't support my four kids with the things they need to lead a full and rich life.

Your network of friends has also provide my husband with employment in the past. In other words, you are our patron, our benefactor, our fairy god mother.

So if being in the process of doing a good deed, is the ultimate protection, by my reasoning, you're safe for a very long time. I wouldn't get worried until Mr Lanna and I each have 5 years of continuous employment with no unplanned breaks.
