Kid 1: We really look like each other.
Kid 2: Yeah, we both have earrings!
“(As for the “f,” “v” is close enough.)”
Which is why people call themselves “rifki”
Yeah whenever people say Shabbosim it really irks me!! (And I’m so not into dikduk, it’s mad.) I do say talleism though…
apushatayid – LOL!!!!!!!!!

golfer – lol 🙂
Rebyidd23 – ikr?? ;P
still can’t believe no-one noticed the spelling of the thread title…
British youth use the word “like” as well.
Syag – “I got to, “But let’s say you were a single girl, and you signed a contract not to get engaged until the year was over. “
i never said, implied, or hinted to such a statement.it’s both a ridiculous statement, and insulting to think i would say that. if the rest of the answer is based on that premise than please reread the posts.”
Really? Because to me, it sounded like you were supportive of such an agreement, by what you said here:
“We do have a school here (maybe two) that had a policy that any single girl who wanted a job had to sign that she was committed to finishing the year. The girls had a choice, never did anyone think it was a request not to date or get married. It was a request to be committed to the children in your charge. take it or leave it, in august. We should have more of that but too many people in the other schools seem to believe that committing to the year means we don’t want them dating.”
I did read the last sentence in this post, but I’m not quite sure how one gets engaged without dating. And if one gets engaged, and married, how that wouldn’t result in them not finishing the year, unless they stay local, in which case there is no issue. As I said, whether or not the husband will decide to stay local til the end of the year is completely up to him – not the girl he dates. Also, you said that they had a choice, but you seemed to imply in other posts that if they got married and consequently left that would mean they were not committed.
“i stopped reading the thread because there was alot of that reflexive – “take what you think you heard and disagree”, or “assume the chareidi lifestyle is being attacked so jump all over it” attitude”
In a thread like this that’s bound to happen. 🙂 I try not to “take what I think I heard” but maybe my interpretations of your posts was off, and I apologize.
“i reopened it now cuz i saw you name :)”
Wow – I’m touched!! 🙂 🙂
And to all the people saying about husbands staying in local kollels…that is the husband’s call, not the wife’s. That has nothing to do with girls “in the freezer”.
Syag – I’m not saying your points are not valid. But let’s say you were a single girl, and you signed a contract not to get engaged until the year was over. The year passes, and it’s summer time, and you don’t get a shidduch that summer. Then you signed for another year, and again, summer passes without a shidduch. You know your parents have turned down many offers during the year because you refused to think about getting engaged until summer, and offers are starting to become less frequent. Would you still be absolutely committed to staying the entire year, no matter what happens? I’m sorry, but I really doubt it. Especially if you know an older single or two, or your siblings had a hard time in shidduchim. And maybe I’m just selfish, but I think it’s downright irresponsible to just push off a shidduch because of teaching, as important as teaching is. And how disturbing it actually is for children is debatable. I wasn’t a child that long ago and I don’t think that one or even two teachers leaving in a year is that unsettling, especially if children are given plenty of warning before the wedding. (To be fair though, different children handle change differently, so maybe I am wrong about this.) As for people taking teacher’s jobs just because there is nothing else to do….well that’s another story and I agree with you completely on that one.
British posters? What is a lodger?
Good point! why is it that violet is a name but purple is “ridiculous” ?
why is this thread under recipes?
Rebyidd I am starting to wonder if you’re a girl. I mean, what guy is obsessed with unicorns and superpowers and starts threads about tznius? (Then again, what girl would describe a lizard as “cute”?)
Suggest shidduchim for others (okay, and yourself…) – i actually thought this was the thread title for a second, since the “shidduchim” thread is right on top of the “suggest subtitles for others” thread 🙂
tana – depends who. I play Monopoly on Shabbos, but many of my cousins and friends don’t.
NE – am i allowed to smile at this time of year? 🙂
NLNSH – I was waiting for you to come back! 🙂 (Guess who?)
Another idea is if its older kids – like fifth, sixth and seventh graders – you can teach them the “Cup dance” (check Maccabeats Dror Yikra). It’s really fun. I once taught it to a group of fifth graders and they were obsessed – we spent an hour on it and they were doing it the whole week! Sounds weird but if you know it, it really is hard to stop once you start:)
A Talent Show is also a fun idea
Waterfun – sprinklers, hoses, water balloons water fights etc. Most kids love it and can play with water for hours in the summer. You can do twists – like playing limbo with a hose, or Red Rover through a sprinkler, or putting a sprinkler under a trampoline. I don’t know where you live, though, and what water restrictions are like.
Or you’ll remember when u don’t need it anymore. Like when you lose something, search EVERYWHERE, finally buy a new one, and then find it the next day.
Most annoying feeling EVER.
well then why is this topic under “kosher establishments”?
I think its a good thing, it means we all have lives 🙂
Can i play if I know someone IRL? 🙂
Well, I know someone that if I told you what their first name was, you would understand why they call themselves by their second name. 🙂
basically she figured out that she knows me IRL:) but not really blowing my cover since she only told me, no-one else 🙂
LOL foncooosed 🙂 but like u said not really…. 🙂
i just wrote back hi and that i was waiting for u to pipe up with that thread 🙂 or something like that
it got thru for about one minute. I tried to reply and then it was deleted, oh well 🙂 lolz
oh well, at least i saw ur thread before it was deleted 🙂
also – I don’t know how many people remember this song since its not so new, but in the song “The Dove” (Shloime Dachs):
“The sun breaks through the clouds/
The mother dove is proud/
Her heart is filled with joy/
As she looks with affection at her boy, so pure and white/
Against the black of night”
But if the sun is breaking through the clouds, doesn’t that suggest that it’s day?
Stratego and othello
Monopoly (although many people don’t play it on shabbos), and definitely articulate!
wisey – no its: Everybody does it! Except me. Therefore, I must be nobody. Nobody’s perfect 😉
Rebyidd you were never accused of such a crime

29??? (mods leave this one for 29 please)
why is everybody up???!!!
rebyidd – who was that addressed to?
anyone know what the words to shaindel antelis’ “A Sister’s Love”? In the last stanza, it says, “I’ll take some tea for two/ And something-something-something/ Grab your shoes, let’s take a walk…” (what is the something-something-something)
rebyidd, I believe you may have found your match (something I didn’t think possible until now!)
Bookworm – I’m a bit confused with your last one. What thread did u base it on?
ca – LOL
