rotzeh – what language is Henglish?
(also, I think it’s “learned” in the US and “learnt” in England/Canada, but I could be totally wrong)May 13, 2015 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm in reply to: silly songs you learnt as a kid #1082427

OMG I had no idea Mod 42 was so hysterical! Goq as usual, love this thread and all ur posts:)May 13, 2015 12:52 pm at 12:52 pm in reply to: Bas mitzvahs #1077515
The Goq – I don’t agree. Some of the bar mitzvos people make are huge. For me, I don’t feel it is appropriate for so much attention to be focused on one young girl; it’s different for a boy. Of course, everybody feels differently, and I definitely hear what you’re saying. But I don’t think that a nice, small family dinner is any less of a celebration than a huge catered meal in a fancy hall. I have really nice memories of friends and family members’ bas mitzvos celebrated in a simple, modest way. I know that my sister took my niece on a really expensive overseas trip, because it was cheaper than having a bas mitzvah party – in the school she goes to, there is a tremendous pressure to make your bas mitzvah party WAAAAYYY nicer (and far more expensive) than the last one. When my sister worked out the cost of such a huge affair (my niece was conveniently born right at the end of the year), she found that a 3-week trip cost less. In my opinion, that is way over the top. Every girl wants to fit in; nobody wants to be the nerd. I don’t believe there should be such a ridiculous pressure to make that whole shebang. It’s not a wedding! And I don’t think it’s very tznius, either.May 13, 2015 11:12 am at 11:12 am in reply to: silly songs you learnt as a kid #1082426
There’s a hole in the bucket, Dear lizaMay 13, 2015 11:08 am at 11:08 am in reply to: Bas mitzvahs #1077511
maran – I don’t think it’s that they don’t celebrate bas mitzvahs, I think it’s that they don’t throw as extravagant a party for a bas mitzvah as they might for a barmi. A lot just have a small party for close family and friends. Personally, I don’t think either a bas mitzvah or a bar mitzvah has to be as over the top as some of the celebrations I have seen. But each to their own, as they say.May 13, 2015 11:02 am at 11:02 am in reply to: silly songs you learnt as a kid #1082425
Another version of Do your ears hang low:
Do your eyeballs droop/ Do they wobble in your soup?
Can you tie them in a hoop?
Can you tie them in a loop?
Can you wear them over you shoulder
Just like a soldier?
Do your eyeballs droop?
Yah we sang that one in school!
I ran around the corner and I ran around the block
And I ran right in to a bakery shop
And I asked for a donut
And I wiped off the grease
And I handed over a five cent piece.
She looked at the nickel and she looked at me,
And she said to me, “Can you plainly see,
There’s a hole in the nickel, there’s a hole right through!”
And I said, “There’s a hole in the donut too!
Thanks for the donut, good-bye!”
I actually thought it was cute. At least compared to half the other rhymes we sang in school….May 11, 2015 2:54 pm at 2:54 pm in reply to: What would you do? #1083453

BTW Rebyidd – are most of your threads just stum random or do I just completely miss the point? (The latter is far more likely I tend to be a bit slow on the uptake 😉 )May 7, 2015 12:50 pm at 12:50 pm in reply to: Woodchucks can chuck wood. #1087543

mentsch1 – Oh. Well good thing I’m not in America.
Seriously. I know that wasn’t the point, but it’s very annoying when adults do that. You think I don’t know what “real struggles” are? I do. I know that life gets harder. Hashem gives everybody hardships according to their stage and personal needs. Trust me, I know adulthood ain’t all peaches and cream. But teenage years aren’t either. Yes of course, on a smaller scale (hopefully), and baruch Hashem my life is beautiful, but I do have challenges, and my life will get harder as I get older. And until I get there, don’t you think it’s hard for me to see other people I know and love going through really hard challenges? I don’t have to tell you everything that goes on in my life. And I appreciate that I haven’t yet gotten to the hardest stage of my life yet. But everyone has challenges, including me. I don’t judge you, so please don’t judge me. I’m sorry if that came out harsh, but please don’t say things like that, it’s hurtful.May 5, 2015 4:56 am at 4:56 am in reply to: If I knew who you were #1075868
