OK, can't keep pouting.

Suppers:
 
Hmm... where to begin?
 
Sunday - pizza at parents
Monday - hmm... what was Monday?  Oh, yeah... supper pout failure - matzah brei & macaroni-tuna casserole (which Elisheva made)
Tuesday - Ted was off - Ted-made stir-fry!  (I was out tutoring & had stir-fry waiting for me when I got home)
Wednesday - quiche night - tinned spinach w/fried onion, nuked veggies on the side
Thursday - Purim - tonight!  Umm... oh, yeah, Shake n' Bake chicken
 
Camera still broken.  Lame-o "estimate" from Nikon people says it's too expensive to fix but they'll give us an upgrade to a new camera for $120.  Same deal they gave us last time.  Aargh.  Meanwhile, for Purim, I had Ted buy a disposable camera.  There are NO choices here, that's the lousy part.  Either buy an inexpensive film camera and spend a ton on developing lousy pictures, spend $100-120 for a digital camera and have it break in 6 months, or waste $10-12 on processing-included disposables.  Ten of them would pay for a digital camera.
 
Mind if I swear?
 
Damn.
Damn.
Damn.
 
I hate this situation.  I feel broken.
 
Mary asked a while ago what Naomi wanted for her birthday - I wonder if I can say she wants her picture taken???  But I think perhaps that window of opportunity has already passed (her birthday having come & gone a month ago and all).
 
Taanis Esther today - must eat lunch before the fasting kids come home.  What a switch from all those years when I was fasting & had to feed them... weird!

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
