Have you never smelled a mouse?October 1, 2009 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #661750
Hey, I didn’t bring up the smelly laundry.October 1, 2009 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #661751
Sort it every day. If you have wet, smelly stuff, it might be prudent to wash if you have asthmatics or people sensitive. CYLOR.October 1, 2009 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #661752
mepal: you wear your dirty laundry?! yuck!October 1, 2009 9:31 pm at 9:31 pm #661753
Jax, not nice to make choizek of mepal for following that chumra.October 1, 2009 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #661754
mepal: ok…Hashem must be very proud that you go Li’fni L’fnim Mushuras Hadin!(hope that can be read in my english!)October 2, 2009 3:54 am at 3:54 am #661755haifagirlParticipant
Chumra? You mean there’s more than just a very small minority opinion allowing laundry to be done on Chol HaMoed? Please give the source!October 2, 2009 4:06 am at 4:06 am #661756sunflowerMember
just wear the laundry jk. i think that most pple only do laundry for babies or emergencies.October 2, 2009 4:08 am at 4:08 am #661757
haifagirl: regarding what was said about a chumra-it was a joke! sorry if we all confused ya here!October 2, 2009 5:08 am at 5:08 am #661758
haifa, You misunderstood. Jax was referring to mepal’s chumra of wearing dirty laundry of Chol Hamoed.October 2, 2009 12:15 pm at 12:15 pm #661759
It is only mutar to launder money on Chol HaMoed if it is being used to purchase goods and services that are necessary for the chag or used to buy aliyois and kibudim on Shmini Atzeres and Simchas Torah.

To 600kilo: clever, but are you happy being so cynical? There’s a great tape/essay by Rabbi Frand on leitzanus/cynicism. After that, read his essay To Give is Divine, google anything you can about Rabbi Grossman of Migdal HaEmek…your faith in humanity will be restored.October 2, 2009 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #661761
Uh, all year long I hold of that chumra. What’s wrong? I feel so holy.October 2, 2009 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #661762
Great – so your clothes are not only dirty, but they have holes in them too?October 2, 2009 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm #661763
Yes, and that only elevates me even more… You should try it yourself.October 2, 2009 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm #661764

Somewhere it says something about having only 2 sets of clothes, right?
This mepal is suuuure something! I’d say #37 right now, but one day, who knows?October 2, 2009 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #661765
ames: One vochen dress (roll the ‘r’ for the proper effect) and one shabbos dress that I wear on yom tov too.
squeak: #37??October 2, 2009 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #661766
Do you mean #37 of the lammed vuv-nicks?October 2, 2009 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #661767LeiderLeider…Participant
Keep it up! Humor and benign cynicism is what’ll keep us going! It’s what kept the Jewish nation going throughout the ages.
Go for it buddy!October 2, 2009 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm #661768
To Leider squared: I have a pretty good sense of humor myself, but there’s a difference.October 2, 2009 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #661769

Mepal, it’s not tznius to wear holy clothingOctober 6, 2009 1:38 pm at 1:38 pm #661772
Sunflower, huh? I had no access yesterday and will have to check out what you are referring to. Yes, Creedmoor is a mental institution, and because it rhymes with Admou”r and almost became the site of a Chassidish housing development (much of it is vacant) I use the vacant parts as the setting for my satire.
Tzippi, it is your very attitude that leads to concert bans and similar extremism which in turn weaken the authority of rabbonim and promote REAL cynicism and disillusionment within the community.October 6, 2009 1:56 pm at 1:56 pm #661773
kilobear, I think sunflower was referring to the Family First section of the Mishpacha magazine. (they mentioned Creedmoor there)October 6, 2009 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #661774
Oh, and I met Rav Grossman at least once. If I put on a few Creedmoor skits for him (with references changed from US to EY so he’d understand what I was joking about), he’d be falling out of his chair laughing!October 6, 2009 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #661775
600kilo, my apologies. I read your post as symptomatic of the kind of cynicism engendered by useless bans, etc.
(And for the record, I have a very irreverent sense of humor, and am fairly liberal in many ways, i.e. not into a lot of the nonsense referred to myself.)
I will try to stop personal references in these posts. Not a good idea anyway.October 6, 2009 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #661776
Big bad box is back to haunt us!
26?October 6, 2009 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #661777
LOL the whole point of Creedmoor is that the people at the fringes of our communities who lead double lives represent no one but themselves and are just people who cannot control their taavois. And some of it really has no point at all except an attempt at kosher comedy that satirizes real problems by exaggerating them to laughable proportions.
Those who lead double lives might as well follow a phantom rebbe with 150 quintillion personalities who all cheat on welfare and live on the partially vacated grounds of what once was a legendary beis mishegoyim!October 6, 2009 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #661778
Big bad box or big bad bear? Do you mean those boxes that show up as an entire page or are you referring to my boxer’s build?
Ah, yes, I haven’t seen Mishpacha in ages – how is Creedmoor referenced? At one time a certain somewhat controversial Chassidish kehilla wanted to develop Creedmoor for housing but a political battle ensued and the kehilla gave up, finding another location instead.October 6, 2009 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #661779
kilobear, not to fear. I was not referring to you, rather, that grey box you get instead of the recent post (and then you have to change the page number on the URL to one before…)
And there was a whole series of stories in the Mishpacha of different families that took in different stranded souls. I cant remember the details now, but there was a mention of Creedmoor and I gave out a big LOL when I read that!October 6, 2009 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #661780smartcookieMember

easier to buy than to washOctober 6, 2009 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm #661785
mazca – I’m 100% with you. My goal is to have 365 pairs of clothes and only do wash once a year.October 6, 2009 7:35 pm at 7:35 pm #661786
mepel: how’s the smelly clothing working out for you?!
