Am Yisrael Chai-
That one always keeps me laughing!

Not sure if he has specific hours today or what they are…
Eichlers store has several books on self-esteem. Zelig Pliskin has a book “Building Your Self Image”.
I found certain parts of a book by Miriam Adahan called “Awareness: The Key to Acceptance, Respect, Forgiveness, and Growth” (new expanded edition) helpful in understanding some things about myself and others.
I am not so sure my feelings stem completely from this, and there are other areas I need to work on that may cause me to feel this jealousy. I’ve begun reading the Orchos Taddikim so that should be a good start.
Thank you, but no, that’s not exactly what I mean. I am aware of many of my Ma’alos and Chisronos and am grateful that Hashem made me the way I am. Baruch Hashem, I think my self-esteem is ok…although it can’t hurt to check out those books.
As I am working on improving myself in a few areas, at times I feel what I think is jealousy of certain people who naturally have (or seem to naturally have) this quality or characteristic. I am not jealous of them in general and would not want to trade my life for theirs, I just sometimes wish I could be better in these areas, like they are.
Thank you, Mods, for fixing my other post.
I finally had a chance to sit down and read through your posts. Thank you.
Yitayningwut, I think someone else mentioned that to me, I will try to check that out.
Thanks, Mytake, for the suggestion.
Thank you for posting info regarding the “Jealousy” thread. I’m not so much talking about being jealous of other people per se, but rather of certain positive qualities that certain people possess…Thank you, though.
Why don’t you type the Hebrew words with English letters?
Thanks, I read about the additional name yesterday (on this site).
I will take from now till 1.
It’s so nice to see that this thread
Has been revived and is not dead
Here’s to more rhyming
All in good timing
Let the lim’ing continue and spread
Nanuet Mall, Galleria at Crystal Run
Ok, Bpt, I guess we’ll rewind to lunch instead of dinner…your boiled chicken sounds good.
I had a whole wheat sandwhich with tuna, tomato, cheese, lettuce…
So what’s for dinner? (I’m getting hungry…) Or is this too controversial a topic?
I am sorry for any arguments or hard feelings I may have stirred up (can think of 2) in my recent participation.
Anyone ever taste Fuji apples? We eat them raw, and we also use them in compote – they’re so sweet that you don’t need to add sugar when making the compote!
Eclipse, I really feel for you
Know what it’s like to feel sick, too
Coughing’s a pain
Don’t see much gain
But there’s not much else to do…
Except for Daven and the med
And lots of sleep in a cozy bed

Glad Smartcookie revived this thread.
No problem! (What I wrote probably didn’t make much sense anyhow, and now I can use words I couldn’t find in Yiddish)
I’m sorry I used the English letters for the Yiddish. In many colleges there are Yiddish courses. I don’t know whether these courses are of proper Yiddish language, perhaps that depends on the (of course, the course,) college and/or professor…but there are many courses available “out there”. I decided to check out a couple of colleges online and saw that each offers Yiddish classes, and different level Yiddish classes at that. (I don’t know about each semester, but where I took Yiddish, one semester the first level of Yiddish was offered, and I think the next semester the next level of Yiddish was offered). I’m sure there are other courses around, out of college. If you try Google, you’ll come up with other options, as well.
I suppose I should include some Yiddish in this, so…Ich meshaer zayn ich zol areyngeyn a bisl Yiddish arayn dos, heyst es…
Part II of yesterday’s poem:
I think today was better
I tried hard to do and say
Things that would fulfill (?) what
I had not done yesterday.
We are only humans
And grumpy moods may come our way
But we must keep in mind that no matter what
With us they should not stay.
Try not to let those “little” things
Wrattle you up inside and out
It may just be the Satan come to test
If we surpass this or fall right down.
And if we fall, remember
There’s always another chance to try
“Sheva Yipol Tzaddik V’kam”
A fall can be a springboard to go way up high.
Thanks 1Day. I really wanted to get out peacefully and just leave this topic… but I think that there is a mentchlich way of expressing one’s opinion. Even if one doesn’t like something, there is a way to indicate so, and the expressions used are a reflection. I guess I just felt let down with the terms being used…
(By the way, I never said I liked it. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted it.)

Thanks Hummingbird. I think I’m going to have to put the whole notary idea on hold for now…I’m beginning review classes for exams I need to take in order to be licensed in the field in which I work…
Thinking of MBC?
way to go
Didn’t know they’re called bobcats…or that they’re so popular…but I guess that was obvious…
Doodle Jump, I have a fan that has a button that rattles around in it’s little button place while the fan is on. Sure, it’s a certain steady noise in the room – but it usually keeps me up! I would get up in the middle of the night trying to tape that thing so it just wouldn’t move! I really like going to sleep to the sound of rain…
Try listening to music, drinking warm milk, reading a book you don’t find interesting…sometimes concentrating on the fact that one can’t fall asleep is what keeps one awake.
Yeah!! Or how when it’s really cold, and you’re shoveling the snow, first your toes and your fingers get numb because your body takes heat away from “less” important parts of the body so that other “more” vital parts of the body can stay warm…
Or how Hashem gave people such chachma that they study science and predict major snowstorms!
Thank you mods!
Re Chicago’s organized operation snowstorm system (don’t know if this is true, just remarking on P.B.A.’s post): I think most places that are used to getting big snowstorms are prepared for such conditions…I think in Canada they have these snow machines (for getting rid of the snow) that go on the sidewalks. Someone mentioned to me recently that he saw one in the U.S. for the first time…
Yossi Z., ich hub genemen a course in kaledzh oyf yiddish…
The Goq, I suppose that is one of the negative effects of such threads/emails/texts – the emotion is missing.
I’m not sure I fully understand why it sounds so bad, but I am sorry you feel this way. I’ll try to be careful next time… Does anyone else feel slighted? In either case-
Mods, can you please revise my first post earlier (2nd post in this thread) so that all it says is:
Wow, another snowstorm…and it’s only the very beginning of February!
How’s that, The Goq?
We used to have a Colorforms of dwarfs and I’m pretty sure there were these little (colorform) carts that we could fill with (colorform) diamonds…maybe it differed from the book.
Why didn’t Dopey sing? (is that from the story too?)
Did they mine for diamonds? Because if the did, then, according to some people who think that only the not wealthy people ate this (so not true, by the way!!) I’m guessing they didn’t eat P’chah.
Oomis: My statement in that it looks alive was upon observation of its jello-like characteristics. However, I do not recall saying deragatory exclamations such as “yuck” “eew” or the like. As I said before, it is food, perhaps not to you, but to others. One of my relatives felt lettuce/greens are animal food. Did that cause him to say negative things about it??? No!
The Goq (and anyone else feeling miffed): No hard feelings intended in my above post. I think Chicago is a very nice place, and feel bad for any hardships our fellow Jewish brethren may endure due to snowstorms and other events there. However, I expressed my gradtitude in that I don’t live there because I do not have to be terribly concerned (at least for the present moment) with:
a)shoveling lots of snow again
b)how certain relatives who are returning from overseas in the next day or two will be getting home
c)how I’m going to get to work(s)
But this doesn’t take away from my empathy…
On the bright side, fresh snow is really beautiful…And can be quite enjoyable…
I’m sorry you killed two things with one polish. (couldn’t come up with something better, it’s kind of late at night) That is truly annoying. There are ways to get nail polish out of boots, though, maybe try Googling it.
Today wasn’t such a great day
Though it started out all right
I accomplished some things, oh sure
But not much about which to write.
Feel I wasted lots of time
Didn’t do what I thought I would
Procrastination got the better of me
And pushed off more than I should.
So today did not seem to turn out so well
It’s gone, can’t back it bring
But tomorrow holds fresh new chances
With which I can do anything.
I probably should’ve stuck this in the poetry thread. oh well. Sorry, Eclipse!
I’m the mayor of New York York York York…sorry, it’s in my head 🙂

I realized that I did not note that I am “new” to the CR. So…
Hi, I’m relatively new….I’ve been reading some threads here and there for quite some time, though did not join until fairly recently.
Goodnight to all!
Wow, another snowstorm…and it’s only the very beginning of February!

Late for dinner
Popcorn, I can more imagine the likes in the sentence as follows:
“I was, like, walking down, like, the avenue, and I, like, saw Shaindy, like, across the (like?) street, and she was, like, wearing that great outfit, and I like wish I know where she, like, bought it” – you were pretty lenient with the number of likes!
It’s amazing how ridiculous people can sound. Sometimes, when I catch myself using some of these words, I stop and rephrase.
I remember, several year ago, when I was in a car with a few people and a man was talking – he kept using the expression “you know” after every few words, and it was almost painful to listen!
Dos vet farvaylerish tzu leyenen! Ich bin shoyn lakhen.

Monday, a new week at work
The “to do” pile is berserk
There’s numbers to crunch
No time to munch
Somewhere must be a perk.
Busy season is once again here
Newcomers to the field, beware!
Say ‘bye to your bed
Or quit while still ahead
Enjoy the tense atomsphere!

My grandfather used to really like p’chah/gala…us “youngsters” kind of stayed away from it. But it is food, and although you may truly not like it, I don’t think it warrants such negative comments. I think the worst I’ve said about it is, jokingly, that it looks alive.
