The reason my blog won’t make me rich (a POLL!)

Loyal readers, please take a second to fill out this poll, and then read on to see a sweet little dolly I crocheted!

So here’s the reason this blog won’t make me rich:

…it’s not closely “targeted” enough to acquire a huge and regular readership.  Like this post, for example, which has nothing to do with anything except this little Kokeshi baby doll I just finished crocheting this morning.  Guaranteed to lose readership right there, though I did throw in an amusing glimpse of kosher cheddar and a grater.

DSC03258I think she’s a little better-stuffed than my previous attempt.  I also made her in more realistic colours – though I still think the blue/green one is appealing in a VeggieTales kind of way.

It’s hard to see her hair, but I’m imageactually fairly pleased with the hair, which is the hangy-down type on the far-right model in the “official” picture.  The official ones have doll eyes, but, thanks to this video (and twenty failed attempts), I’m getting pretty good at just sticking on a quick French Knot.  The models also don’t have mouths, but I like my women to have a voice.  ;-)

Here’s a side view:

I assure you, regardless of the poll results, my next (planned) post is the regular parsha riddles!

  1. I saw your blog on the top 25 vote page and was curious. Hope you don't mind me stopping by. :) I couldn't see a poll, but that could be because I just updated firefox and it isn't playing well with any websites right now. Anyway, these dolls are adorable. And I really like the VT inspired colorful girly.

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
