New Square Logo

No, not THAT one…

Not THAT one, either…

I have wanted a square logo for my blog for a while, for various sites, blog link-ups, etc.  So I did a square variation on the header at the top of the page. 

new blog logo WHITE

For anyone who’s wondering what the symbols mean, it’s actually pretty self-explanatory.  I just opened up the symbol/webdings/wingdings fonts and picked out a bunch that seemed to represent what goes on around here on a typical “day in the life.”  I ended up with: a family, shouting, parking = shlepping around by car, bicycle (we love bikes), late nights, eating and Jewy-Jewishness.

That said, Fiverr is my new obsession this weekend.  I am on desperate to pay somebody $5 to do something… anything!

Oh – I made a red version, but I don’t like it as much…

Feedback, anyone???

UPDATE:  Based on the single piece of feedback I’ve received, I also created a full-colour version of the “stark” (I like it!) white logo above… I was thinking colourful, but not a rainbow, and I found this lovely background colourway, of which I used only a small section.  Hmm… I like the colour, but the bicycle and moon are a little faded-out in this version. FIXED!

More feedback?  Other than from people sitting behind me on the sofa as I type this…???

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
