I love it!

tichels 2010-08-03 004Wow – amazingly fast!  Only one week for my order to arrive from CoverYourHair.com.

I am pretty fussy about headcovering things, but this pretied bandana is about as comfy as they come.  Also, you can’t see here, but it is a lovely turquoise shade.  I don’t wear a lot of turquoise; maybe I should.

The weight is a little thick for this time of year, but my main worry was that it wouldn’t have good “hold” at the hairline.  There’s no front view on the website, so I was very nervous.

But no fear!  It has a very neat border, almost like a plain snood.  Those were extremely popular when I was first married, but you don’t see nearly as many of them now – at least on the street.  And actually, this tichel feels more snug than a snood, which is good, because those used to slip a lot on me.

I don’t know if the snugness will be irritating over time.  I have been wearing it nonstop for about six hours now, however, and so far, so good.  A friend of mine admitted that she hates having anything on her head.  I guess I am more tolerant, as these things go. 

This is a mitzvah that I have grappled with, more than once, because it can be very difficult.  Especially in HOT WEATHER.  Ick.

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
