    LOL, Shticky! I got 3 and 4 right immediately. I goofed on the others though.

    Most ppl are also born with crooked teeth

    Most people I know were born with no teeth.

    So now what? Should this now be the “Good Husband’s Guide” since now in most marriages the wives work also?

    I wouldn’t want my husband to have a ribbon in his hair when I come home from work.

    in reply to: who do u think has 2 names in cr and wat r they? #780262

    Oh, you meant 2 SNs? And here I thought you were asking who we think has 2 real names, such as Sara Leah or Moshe Dovid, and I couldn’t understand how you expected anyone to be able to guess that.

    Anyone who comes anywhere near you will be able to smell that it’s parve cheese.

    “You can that again. :-)”

    Obviously everyone can make a mistake every once in a while (as avident from your post)…

    You’re right. I deserved that. 🙂

    FYI, there are spellcheckers which can check the spelling of everything you post.

    in reply to: CONGRATS!!!! #776794

    Don’t forget a change of pants. That’s a must for every kindergartner.

    in reply to: Do you know your IQ? #1054329

    others are better with spelling and grammer

    You can that again. 🙂

    in reply to: Business travel #776522

    In a former job, I had to go on quite a few business trips. I didn’t need a minyan, but for me the biggest challenge was traveling with my male boss. We flew together and stayed in the same hotel and I was never comfortable with it. It was one of the reasons I quit my job.

    Health, I believe cum laude is a psychiatrist.

    in reply to: Yibum & Chalitza Today #776375

    To: Mother in Israel. Marrying your (former) brother-in-law is quite common and 100% Halachicly permissible.

    I didn’t know it was common, but I had no doubt that it was halachically permissible.

    in reply to: Do you know your IQ? #1054311

    Ronsr, I don’t think you have to worry much about bragging. 😉

    in reply to: Need remedy for crazy pregnancy hormones during last weeks…. #777661

    Not to be discouraging, but don’t think it’s much better those first few weeks after birth. Just take one day at a time.

    in reply to: Yibum & Chalitza Today #776372

    I know someone who did a sort-of reverse yibum. A young woman who was expecting her first child had some kind of complication which left her comatose for a few months until she was niftar. The baby was delivered safely via C-section. After the woman was niftar, her sister married the widower.

    in reply to: an ear for music anyone?!? #776078

    I play the guitar and the piano too. We have a few other musicians in the house who play other instruments though. My daughter plays the oboe, my son plays the saxophone, another daughter plays the violin, another son plays the clarinet, and the 2-year-old plays the pots and pans. The 1-month-old is the vocalist.

    in reply to: from south to east #776261

    Yup. Do you still have family there?

    in reply to: from south to east #776258

    mother in israel’s husband is from the les – anyone else?

    My aunt and uncle also live there. They made our shidduch. And I have quite a few cousins and other relatives there. Definitely more than a minyan. 🙂

    Interesting how not one man here seems to disagree with the theory. I guess that should say something.

    in reply to: Would You Date a Guy Who Drives a Mustang? #776825

    I wouldn’t date a guy who drives a Mustang. My husband wouldn’t let me.

    in reply to: Older Guys in Shidduchim #775450

    Mods, can you get rid of the apostrophe in the thread title? It makes me cry every time I see it.

    in reply to: Shavuos Night For Girls #775391

    DY–I had a dream last night that I woke up in the morning and logged on to the CR and discovered that you had Joseph written under your screen name. I was really disappointed because I had always enjoyed your posts and it was a big letdown to find out that you were Joseph all along.

    in reply to: Help me dry my tears #790655

    Read up on dysphoric milk ejection reflex & see if it sounds like what you have!

    I read a little and it sounds fascinating! I’m pretty sure that’s not what I have though because I’ve never noticed a connection between my crying and nursing. I don’t notice a feeling of relief when I have a letdown. (I’ve been having pretty painful letdowns, actually.)

    MII- glad to hear you’re doing better! You better get to rest on YOM TOV! No getting up to serve!

    Thanks! I’m afraid my days of sitting through the seuda are long gone, but my husband does help me so I’m not going back and forth to the kitchen too much. And I do hope to rest.

    in reply to: Help me dry my tears #790650

    Thanks for asking. I’m doing better than I was. I still cry but not as much as I was last week. My pneumonia is better BH–I just had a recheck today and my lungs are clear. I’m still extremely tired all the time, but I guess that’s not unexpected. My baby is delicious but she hasn’t read the girls on Shavuos thread so she doesn’t know that it’s pikuach nefesh for me not to sleep through the night.

    in reply to: Older Picky Girls #813954

    What does heicha timtza mean?

    in reply to: Kosher Phones #775147

    You can even get a touch screen phone with popular jewish tunes for ring tones!

    I have a kosher phone which is touch screen and has Jewish tunes for ringtones. My ringtone is Shwekey singing Harachaman.

    in reply to: Older Picky Girls #813938

    I don’t know what a haicha timtza is, but I could tell from the OP that it was joke. Maybe I’ve been reading popa for too long.

    in reply to: Shavuos Night For Girls #775350

    When I was a teenager, I sometimes went to shiurim on Shavuos night. Now that I’m a busy mommy of quite a few, I sleep. I think it’s the most ruchniyus thing for me to do because it gives me koach to take care of my children the following day.

    When we asked Rabbi Miller Z”L from Gateshead Sem to give us some extra classes for Shavuos,He explained to us that it is Pikuah nefesh to a girl not to sleep through the night.

    Can you kindly tell that to my baby? <yawn>

    in reply to: Thanks mod 80 #775465

    DY–Looks normal to me. I use FF too.

    Iconcur, where in the Galil are you?

    in reply to: The Riddle Thread…. #1069653

    “So what is ?? ???? called? “

    my son’s birthday!

    But I think you meant yom hameyuchas.

    in reply to: Pouring Wine/Grape Juice Back Into The Container #860459

    Thanks, DH, I got it now.

    in reply to: Are you in Israel? #776561

    I’m here. Does that make me #2?

    in reply to: Pouring Wine/Grape Juice Back Into The Container #860457

    Actually, one should never drink more than a “m’lo lugmov”

    Can you explain this? I remember the rabbi in camp finishing the whole cup every week by havdalah. He claimed it was to avoid a shaila about bracha achrona. I knew that it wasn’t necessary to drink it all, but why is there a problem if someone does?

    in reply to: AZ's scheme revealed #774917

    You don’t even know if I’m married.

    But we know that your daughter’s teacher mistook her Queen Esther costume for Vashti. (Maybe you were still under the influence when you posted that.)

    in reply to: Young Readers & Posters in the YWN Coffee Room #774742

    You’re not a kid, so why did you leave them?

    Didn’t you see my previous post? I’m only 9.

    But even if I were an adult, I don’t think it would make any difference. There are some things which I feel should not be discussed even in a female-only forum. People there discuss intimate details of their married lives with no qualms just because it’s anonymous. I do understand that some people have a need to get help, but there are professionals for that. Asking advice in these matters from anonymous posters in a forum is not appropriate. I was uncomfortable reading about these issues and felt that it was wrong for it to be as public as it was, so I left. I do miss some aspects of it, but I feel like I’m better off not going there.

    in reply to: Young Readers & Posters in the YWN Coffee Room #774735

    Since IAM’s site was mentioned by name, from what my Mrs tells me, the things discussed on that site really should have a serious password protection, not just a questionare.

    The topics are serious, but some are very not suitable for kids.

    Absolutely. Which is why I left imamother.

    in reply to: Young Readers & Posters in the YWN Coffee Room #774731

    for the ‘imamother’ site, you havta be a Jewish female & married to join their site.. you are asked to fill out a questionnaire at registration so that they can ‘verify’ (?) that you are so. I would imagine it’s not foolproof, but…

    It’s not foolproof at all. Any married man who knows hilchos taharas hamishpacha could answer those questions, and anyone else could use google to figure it out.

    in reply to: Tznius issue – what would you do? #774670

    I chose to do nothing about it because it was very obvious (black pants with white showing through the open zipper) and I knew that she would see it on her own. I saw it before her because she got into the car before he came out to help me, but I knew that as soon as they would both get out together, she would see and tell him.

    in reply to: Who would you rather consult??? #779607

    I think it depends on what the issue is.

    in reply to: Need Help! Tznius ahhh! #775736

    Mod 20 is a lady.

    in reply to: HEADLINES Mod-80 has a sense of humour #774060

    To understand it better, you have to read the thread. Dovid S asked “Whom?” when he should have asked “Who?” (He was asking who said something.) I think that was why Mr. 80 answered “Youm” instead of “You.”

    in reply to: Young Readers & Posters in the YWN Coffee Room #774716

    How did the mods know my age? I just turned 9 this week.

    in reply to: Who are the top 2 people you'd like to meet #773938

    “health- he said that now he knows what type you are (joking).”

    I don’t know what he/you are talking about, I haven’t made any jokes on this thread.

    He meant that he was joking when he said he knows now what type you are.

    in reply to: Ger Disowns Pre-Conversion Family #833062

    so is pacman joseph? mods can you spill the beans pls!

    Look at his subtitle. It’s not a secret. The bigger question is if Master is Joseph too.

    in reply to: Tznius issue – what would you do? #774667

    I had a similar situation to this today. I went out with a friend and her husband came to drive us home. When he got out of the car to help me with the stroller, I saw that his pants zipper was open. There was no way I was going to say anything to him, but I briefly entertained the thought of telling my friend so she could tell her husband. I didn’t end up saying anything because I thought she might be embarrassed if I would point it out to her too.

    in reply to: IS IT OK TOO?? #774221

    Basically you are saying that the only level on which you can connect with a female is physical . Intellectual level? Na. Wit? Who needs it. Hashkafa? Not important.

    Sac, I didn’t write the post but here’s how I understand DY. In real life, the problem with interacting with a female on any level is that it can lead to connection on a physical level as well which is improper. If a male and a female could connect on an intellectual or other level without it potentially leading to physical connection, it would not be as problematic. Here in the CY, men and women can “connect” on an intellectual level without it leading to physical connection due to the fact that we don’t see each other or know what each other look like. This makes the connection somewhat more “kosher” since it eliminates the problems associated with male-female interactions in real life.

    Hope that made some sense.

    in reply to: Anyone? #773407

    Coffee Rooom addiction can do that to you. Do you perhaps feel that you are not being productive during the day because you are constantly in the Coffee Room?

    That would be me.
