Why I Disappeared from the Internet for Two Random Days

Lately, I begin a lot of posts with some variation of "why I haven't been around." Not a good sign! But my terrible-horrible-no good-very bad semester is coming to a close, so I should be able to post on this guy more often.



But my excuse for this week is a good one! From Tuesday night to Thursday night we were celebrating Shavuos, a Jewish holiday. It's a holiday celebrating the Jews receiving the Torah at Mount Sinai a long time ago.


It's also a holiday celebrating cheese--although I can't remember why (if you do, inform me, please!)

We eat a lot of cheesecake on Shavuos. S and I bought a 14-slice cheesecake sampler with all different flavors just for the two of us. It was sick.

It was taunting me from the fridge, so if you live in my apartment building, you will find a cheesecake sampler with a sign saying "free" on the table in the lobby.


So that's Shavuos in a nutshell--Torah and cheesecake.

And finally....I have something exciting to show you next week!

Can anyone guess what it is?

  4. googled it--the laws of kashrut were given with the torah so the meat they had previously slaughtered and any dishes/pots/pans were considered no longer kosher so they ate dairy.
