Okay, Okay ...

I suck at my promises, what can I say. I should start ever "I'm going on a hiatus" post with gigantic, bold, italics "bli neder" (that's what we say when we make a promise but don't necessarily know whether keeping it is a definite). I'll put off any posts for a while that might ruffle feathers, because I don't have the energy or oomph to deal with that right now. Instead, I thought I'd link to some good Passover posts from folks around the intertubes.

First, I have to mention this book I picked up at the airport. It's probably the most appropriate book to be reading during the chag. Why? It's called "Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal" and it's by Christopher Moore. I assumed it was new because I bought it at one of those Hudson News stands at the airport (my desired reading never came in through Inter-Library Loan, unfortunately, and I recently discovered that's because it's "Too New" to be ILL'd, curses!), but it actually came out many years ago. Here's the synopsis from
The birth of Jesus has been well chronicled, as have his glorious teachings, acts, and divine sacrifice after his thirtieth birthday. But no one knows about the early life of the Son of God, the missing years -- except Biff, the Messiah's best bud, who has been resurrected to tell the story in this divinely hilarious yet heartfelt work "reminiscent of Vonnegut and Douglas Adams" (Philadelphia Inquirer).
There's more there, but you get the drift. Talk about awesome ...

Okay, basically that's it. Moadim l'simcha!
