Happy Purim

just me

(I don’t even know what this facial expression is for…)

Hoping your day was leopard-iffic!!!

Feline-tastic!

I came this close to not having a costume at all.  I could barely pull myself up out of the winter blahs to shlep to Value Village, and once I was there, barely had the energy to wander the aisles for inspiration.

I am glad I did!  As Elisheva pointed, this is SO venahafoch hu (upside-down)… “you hate animal prints!”

Well, I don’t HATE them, but I sure did have fun mixing them all up like this.  And you can’t quite see here, but I’m cradling a baby leopard; he was part of the costume.  I’m a Leopard Mommy.

I also had a pair of fabulous gold leopard-ted's Purim 035spotted earrings, which you can’t quite see here.  Sara (crooked-halo angel that she is) helpfully pointed out that the earrings should probably be in the MASK ears, not my own… thank you, Sara!!!

The whole point is FEELING FABULOUS and really, truly, mostly, I did.

Here’s what we ate… including a repeat of Maggie Glezer’s AWESOME onion-poppy Purim Ring.  It’s like pletzl… inside the world’s biggest twister bagel.  Like I said… awesome!!!

  2. I must really be costume deficient if you can put together such a head-to-toe affair so effortlessly! One of these days I will get around to doing an ima costume. And what an adorable (wait, I mean scary) crocodile and elegant Ester in the next post.

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
