PBA – question: am I supposed to EVER take you seriously?? (no idea if this has already been discussed – probably 🙂 )October 2, 2014 12:49 am at 12:49 am in reply to: #1 on your shidduch list #1187486
randomex – lol ideally, both parties should have this middah 🙂October 2, 2014 12:00 am at 12:00 am in reply to: Name That Tune! #1194269
Also, Randomex, thanx for the tip I’ll try it 🙂 yes I have not been around that long, although I do know a lot of old songs (in relation to my friends, who only know songs from about 2006 onwards 🙂 )October 1, 2014 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm in reply to: Name That Tune! #1194268
No, before the war my grandmother (and I think also my grandfather) was chassidish (don’t ask which chassidus, wouldn’t have a clue.) I think my other grandparents were litvish. However, after the war, my grandmother let go of chassidus, I guess, and we don’t hold anything. Also, I am I guess what people who don’t know better would call “litvish” but we aren’t really, because we still keep minhagim that my grandparents kept in hungary, e.g. mitzvah tanz, no gebrokts (not sure if that’s chassidish or not, but most litvish people I know eat gebrokts on pesach).October 1, 2014 11:48 pm at 11:48 pm in reply to: #1 on your shidduch list #1187481
Definitely patience, or the ability to give in/let it goOctober 1, 2014 12:56 pm at 12:56 pm in reply to: Name That Tune! #1194255

mods i said she didnt have to answer! why was my post deleted??
Because it isn’t an appropriate questionOctober 1, 2014 7:54 am at 7:54 am in reply to: Name That Tune! #1194252
Yeah there’s other songs like that. Track 3 on Chevra 4 is called ‘I’m a Jew’ and some of the lyrics are:
“Sing it loud: I am so proud….I’m a Jew.” I’m not disputing that fact:) It’s just a personal thing. Obviously, everyone in my class is a Jew. Question is, what type of Jew are you? And I’m nothing – just plain Jewish! lol so my username is staying as it is for now 🙂October 1, 2014 5:00 am at 5:00 am in reply to: How do you translate your Hebrew name? #1034335
Randomex – your crash course REALLY helped me. I keep going back to it if I’m unsure about something. Thank you!October 1, 2014 4:47 am at 4:47 am in reply to: Rosh Hashana Poem #1033570

no, its not that my computer doesn’t allow google, I have googled things in the past…..I don’t know why this didnt come up!October 1, 2014 3:44 am at 3:44 am in reply to: How can I know? #1033826
Ok then I obviously completely misunderstood you! Sorry! But then I guess I still don’t get your questionOctober 1, 2014 3:41 am at 3:41 am in reply to: Name That Tune! #1194249
Oh thanks sooo much!! Yes I tried googling, maybe you’re right. Yes I am a Jew. However, my name is not just random, I wanted it to say I’m Jewish specifically, coz I go to a school with many types of girls – chassidish, litvish, sefardi etc. When we were younger everybody used to ask each other, “Are you lebavitch/litvish/sefardi etc.?” I didn’t know, so when I got home, I asked my parents what type we are. They said, “Nothing. We aren’t litvish, we aren’t chassidish, we aren’t sefardi etc. We’re Jewish.” So that was my answer to the question from then on. I am proud to be just plain Jewish 🙂October 1, 2014 3:32 am at 3:32 am in reply to: Limericks! #1221860
I have to admit that it’s true,
What you’re on about I haven’t a clue,

Honestly, I have never thought to think about such a thing. I also heard someone ask once that if something is there and no-one is there to see it, is it still there? I mean I sort of figured that, for example, your bed doesn’t just disappear during the day because you’re not there to see it and then reappear at night……And with this question as well; I mean, I just feel really good inside if I’m happy. I don’t feel the need to know if other people think I’m happy. No-one actually knows, since different people experience happiness in different ways. These abstract questions (to put it nicely) always confuse me.September 29, 2014 1:22 pm at 1:22 pm in reply to: Things Kids Said/Did #1185340
Another one: my nephew came back from a classmate’s bar mitzvah, and my sister was questioning him about the menu. “And what did they serve for dessert?” she asked. “Chocolate mousse,” he answered, then added, “And fruit salad, cake and chocolates.” (I don’t remember the exact foods so I’m making them up, but he mentioned a few.) My sister was impressed. “Wow! So you mean, on top of the chocolate mousse, they had fruit salad, cake and chocolates, as well?”
“No,” my nephew answered, in all seriousness, “the fruit salad, cake and chocolates were on the side, next to the chocolate mousse.”September 29, 2014 1:12 pm at 1:12 pm in reply to: Things Kids Said/Did #1185339
Huh? Pre-registration? Waddya mean by that? And yes, it IS old. But I thought it was worth reminding everybody about 🙂September 29, 2014 8:55 am at 8:55 am in reply to: Funny Bumper Stickers #1163703

Can’t be bothered reading the rest of this thread so sorry if this has already been said:
A flea and a fly in a floo
They were stuck, so what could they do?
“Let us flee,” said the fly.
“Let us fly,” said the flea.
So they flew through a flaw in the floo.September 29, 2014 6:10 am at 6:10 am in reply to: Embarrassing Stories #1033411
These are really funny!! Could everyone continue this thread??September 29, 2014 5:42 am at 5:42 am in reply to: Rosh Hashana Poem #1033568
It sounds a bit like Country Yossi’s song:
“Yetzer hara you’re a real mean guy,
You drive me crazy and I’ll tell you why,
You’re alwayss makin’ me do things no good,
You never let me do the things I should….
Oy vey, set me free,
Yetzer hara, stop pickin’ on me” 🙂

That’s so funny and so true! Yes my nephew drew a picture for his friend who was sick, and I told him he would have to wait until his friend came back to preschool to give it to him. He thought for a moment, then said, “Can’t you just put it in your phone and send it to him?”September 29, 2014 5:09 am at 5:09 am in reply to: Cute Quotes #1046970

And also – my niece said to her three-year-old sister, “You’re face is dirty.”
Without missing a beat, she replied, “So don’t look!”
Our family went out one day together with my married siblings. My mother was writing her cell on every kid’s hand, and my nephew wanted to know why. “In case you get lost, so people will know how to bring you home,” my mother answered. To which my nephew replied, “If I get lost, I’ll just tell someone I live in the house next to my neighbor’s.”September 28, 2014 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm in reply to: Things Kids Said/Did #1185333
My mother gave our guest’s young daughter a piece of cake. Her mother prompted her, “So? What do you say?”
“Can I have another one?”
Happened to someone I know – a young girl used to wake up every morning in a really bad mood, and would throw tantrums, cry, and generally be very hard to deal with. One day, when the girl threw a tantrum just after waking up, her mother finally had enough. “That’s it! Tomorrow, you are not going to wake up in a bad mood. I want you to wake up in a happy mood! A jolly mood! A cheerful mood!”
The girl burst into tears and said, “I can’t wake up in so many moods!”September 28, 2014 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm in reply to: Cute Quotes #1046968

Does anyone know these songs?
“Continuing to pray,
Knows she’ll find her way….” I don’t know the rest, at least, I don’t remember it…what is the song called and what are the rest of the lyrics?
Also, “He says do you have a gemara…..”?? And then something about “my gemarakup, my boy” Anyone know??
And last one, something like: “Her only son is serving on the line(???)” Please help! I hate it when I remember one or two lines of a song!!
I cant be bothered reading the whole thread, so I apologize if this one has already been said:

The plane took off on schedule from La Guardia
On a bright clear sunny summers day
What a cheerful trio they appeared to be
to the Hello Kitty convention in L.A.
Bao-Yu was a teenage girl from China
From Japan, Akemi had travelled all the way
And Huan journeyed from Hong Kong, her homeland,
With the clouds below…..they were on the go
To the Hello Kitty convention in LA.
“I’m so glad we’re going to this convention
To find out about Hello Kitty’s taste in bows,
We’ll find out answers to the mysteries of life,
Like why she has no mouth, just eyes and nose.
There will be speeches that will make us really wonder,
Does she have a complex about being fat?
Hello Kitty’s still young at heart is our motto,
And she’s definitely not a kitten, but a cat.”September 22, 2014 8:39 am at 8:39 am in reply to: Song Lyrics #1155251
Anticipation as we make our way
To the hall on this special day
The excitement, we’re feeling in the air,
The special moment’s drawing near.
And we are hoping
Our friends and family
Will be coming for us to see,
Yes, the mitzvah
Of bringing joy is great,
Let’s be on time and not be late.
We will dance to the music as we show our hearts as one,
We will sing with emotion, life and joy and fun,
Join and clap to the beat and feel the rhythm
Oh, so strong,
Capture the meaning of the simcha song.
And we have waited for this to come at last,
Can’t imagine how much time has past,
It’s so clear now, a mitzvah reverie,
This simcha’s truly meant to be.
Keitzad merakdim, lifnei hakallah,
Kallah no’eh bachasuda,
Asher bara sasson ve’simcha
Oid yishama v’yarei yehuda….
Kay im not 100% sure but i think thats basically it 🙂September 22, 2014 8:24 am at 8:24 am in reply to: Everyone Must Answer: Your Favorite Song #1032976
