I one time won a silver menorah.
I’m towards the end but not quite in the middle- (I have a large family). As a teenager I was also the oldest one home. I enjoyed being the oldest.
One part I didnt like- was Yomtov when my married siblings came home, us single ones were the ones who served, cleared, and cleaned and had to watch my nieces and nephews.(My siblings all felt like they were on vacation when they came home.) Now, I cant say I blame them!
The soap touches all your dishes and pots, so it needs to be kosher, although I never heard of sponges that need/have a hechsher.
I love the smell of laundry – My favorite isle in the supermarket is the laundry isle!
I also love the smell of fresh challah being baked! YUM!
My birthday is in Adar. When I was younger I used to celebrates in both Adars- not, I only celebrate in the second Adar- which is officially the real one.( trying to push off my birthday!)
My friend got her Chossen a tie!
I guess I live in a really friendly city, everyone says GS to everyone. Even men to women. (Also, where I live everyone knows everyone, so you know who your saying it to.)February 9, 2011 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm in reply to: which company cholov yisroel milk do you recommend #738164
You can’t get Pride of the Farm milk in NY?!
Even if they pay you, its a favor. It’s not always easy to find a babysitter. And besides, is it really worth it to babysit for the amount you’re getting paid?? Usually not!February 8, 2011 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm in reply to: which company cholov yisroel milk do you recommend #738147
I found that Pride of the Farm stays fresh the longest. I only buy Pride of the Farm.
This thread is hysterical!

Why do you get offended by being called an out-of-towner? I’m proud of the fact that I’m an ‘out-of-towner’!!
you can listen to kol brama,but I think you hear all their commercials and advertizements. I usually listen to mostly music though.
What happens to those not named after anyone? They dont have “part of that person’s neshama” in them?! I thought it was just a zechus for that person your naming after, I never heard it went past that.
The freezer is open!
There’s nothing wrong with wearing jeans, its just not considered yeshivish.
My nieces and nephews all call me by my first name. I always tell them not to call me Aunt ____ . Maybe because all my aunts and uncle were older, I feel like im too young to be called Aunt.
You started a post about stories, but you didnt even post one?!
Well, recently there was a proposal on youtube- it was insane!( Wondering if anyone here knows which one I’m talking abt.)
SJS- there is a thing to propose by water. Many peaple propose there but I forgot the reason for it.
You should definitely ask around in the coffee room!
This doesn’t really have to do with the topic…
My brother went on a date in Manhattan. He ended up paying much more $ for parking than the date itself!!
There are no rules. Start dating again when you think its the right time. Im just curious- if peaple in the coffee room would say 1 yr, would you wait 1 yr??
There’s tonz out there, but a lot of times they completely change crowds. Like when I went to one it was definilty not yeshivish and now it is. The best way to find out what kind of crowd it is, is to find out what kind of counselors they want.
Here is some places you might want to look into:

Invite neighbors over so the kids wont get too bored, and kids love baking.
There’s no general answer- If your teacher wont see you again before shabbos than she says good shabbos even on monday. But if you see someone everyday you usually dont say good shabbos on wednesday.
I think peaple of bored if they post such questions.
Mazel Tov Oomis!-Is it the first?

I remember when my sister was little her best friend was a boy who lived next door. When they both were six, his mother decided they cant be friends anymore. It was so hard for them so they used to hide from his mother and play together. On purim they even managed to give each other shaloch monos!
We joined the do not call list and we almost never get telemarketing calls anymore.
I heard a speech by Dr. phil Rosenthal ( i think that was his name ) all about internet usuage and teens. He is a online cop, and told us all kinds of stories. I think once you hear him, you wont let your kids have a facebook account. He was really good, but scary!
the coffee room!!December 20, 2010 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm in reply to: How Long Have You Been Part of the YWN Coffee Room? #719279

I go to a corner of the office and daven mincha. This is only a problem during the winter, because the rest of the yr. I can daven when I get home.
Similar to Hashem’s son- we put music in the pop up ceiling, And told the teacher it was on over the PA System. She sent one girl to the office to tell them to shut it off, the girl came back saying the system broke and they can’t stop the music. The teacher was very annoyed, but having no choice had to continue teaching with the music on!
I was picking up my nephews from the Lakewood Cheder at 2:00, The yeshiva on the same block leaves for lunch at 2:00 also.

Where I live, there’s trees- a small forest in my back yard, and we had sprint,but we never had service in the house so we had to switch to verizon and now we have service.
My favorite song is Ten Lo!! Im tot. hooked onto his new CD!

One day a cousin of hers was annoying her so she told her cousin- dye, dye, her cousin burst into tears and told her mother- she told me to die!!

–A Gift To The Teacher–
It was the end of the school year, and a kindergarten teacher was receiving gifts from her pupils. The florist’s son handed her a gift. She shook it, held it overhead, and said, “I bet I know what it is. Flowers.” “That’s right!” the boy said, “But, how did you know?” “Oh, just a wild guess,” she said. The next pupil was the sweet shop owner’s daughter. The teacher held her gift overhead, shook it, and said, “I bet I can guess what it is. A box of sweets.” “That’s right, but how did you know?” asked the girl. “Oh, just a wild guess,” said the teacher. The next gift was from the son of the liquor storeowner. The teacher held he package overhead, but it was leaking. She touched a drop off the leakage with her finger and put it to her tongue. “Is it wine?” she asked. “No,” the boy replied, with some excitement. The teacher repeated the process, tasting a larger drop of the leakage. “Is it champagne?” she asked. “No,” the boy replied, with more excitement. The teacher took one more big taste before declaring, “I give up, what is it?” With great glee, the boy replied, “It’s a puppy!” SURPRISE!
Yeshiva Bocher’s First Date —
A Yeshiva Bocher (young man) is about to go on his first date, and is nervous about what to talk about. He asks his Rabbi for advice.
The Rabbi replies: “My son, there are three subjects that always work. These are food, family, and philosophy.”
The boy picks up his date and they go to a hotel lobby to talk. They stare at each other for a long time, as the boy’s nervousness builds.
He remembers his Rabbi’s advice, and chooses the first topic.
He asks the girl: “Do you like spinach?” She says “No,” and the silence returns.
After a few more uncomfortable minutes, the boy thinks of his Rabbi’s suggestion and turns to the second item on the list. He asks, “Do you have a brother?”
Again, the girl says “No” and there is silence once again.
The boy then plays his last card. He thinks of his Rabbi’s advice and asks the girl the following question:
“If you had a brother, would he like spinach?”
Way to go blinky!! Impressed you passed on your first try!
