Ok. I confess I have this terrible addiction..and it's making my blogging life suffer. I'm not sure what to do about it.
I'm addicted to real life...and I feel it's taking too much away from my blogging life.
What is the draw in this thing called real life?
Ok..I concede..wife, children and sustenance are pretty important...
But besides for's quite harmful to spend time with real live people in real live situations..which can be frough with so much angst and problems.
When was the last time you caught a cold from someone online?
Why would I limit my interactions to the few people within 5 feet of me when I can interact with anyone..anywhere?

I'm working real hard to overcome this...compulsion of mine..really...

I got scared from the title which I guess was your intention lol. Real life is a good addiction, and when you catch too many colds then come back to blogger life:).

You must be so wierd. I cannot identify with that at all. I mean, life is nice and all that, but how could a seemingly intelligent person like you fall for it like that?! I must say, DOT, I'm disappointed in you. *[nasty teacher glare]*

let your blogging life suffer... even to death (@ commentors' expense).
i hope the "real life" draw is more than importance...

stop working (to overcome it). relax, take it easy, enjoy life! it's gud to take a shot of some real, strong stuff every so often. the more the better... :)

That was hilarious. That's probably the best addiction you can have.

Well, Dreamer, there are things you can catch online that are worse than colds, too. Hameivin yavin.

And while we're on the subject, I think I'm coming down with a cold right now :( Must be your fault.

just read your comment to dreamer about bas HAmelech..
and had a lump in my throat
I feel that your sentence was a beautiful and simple (maybe not so simple) kiddush Hashem

david - I knew to waht you were referring. Thing is, when I think of a "bas melech" I think of the Mechilta on "Elokei Avi Vaaromimenu" (in Az Yashir)

It says that we are miromem HKB"H through knowing that, as Am Yisroel, we are "Malkah bas Milachim, Ahuvah bas Ahuvim, Kedoshah bas Kedoshim, Tehorah bas Tehorim"
There's no "HA Melech" over there, and the phrasology usually remains as "bas melech".

This comment was not meant to be an argument. I 100% agree with, as TOWIK puts it, your beautiful and simple statement.

vehamaven yavin

thanks...just trying be grammaticaly correct..

Isnt that mechilte referring to the avos...?
and if so why isnt her nick Bas Melachim?

nuu where is she??

david - referring to the avos? That we are the children of the avos? I guess so. Learned that a while ago, so i don't recall exactly.
And I don't think bas-melech ever learned that mechilta.

Oh, my-- should I be flattered at being the topic of conversation on my favorite blog?

Anyway, there was no private joke. Hamaven yavin was directed at everyone, as was the cold (unless, now that you mention it, it really is Dreamer's fault.) LV sneezed first.
