    Hamen....

    I was visiting a potential client today (an attorney, don'tcha know) when his secretary comes around with the aforementioned goodies, which I had never heard of (being non MOT).

    As I'm sitting there in his office, he proceeds to tell me the Purim story and says "I was raised in an Orhodox household....and then I married a non Jewish woman"

    I said (having met this guy 15 minutes before) "that must have gone over big with the parents"

    He laughed.

    Happy Purim.

    "Miss Orchid has attempted to register here at UG, so far without success. "

    We all know how difficult it is to register here.

    BTW What's the phone number for 411 ?

    Re: how about.....

    Miss Orchid has attempted to register here at UG, so far without success.

    perhaps one of our many gallant IT-saavy knights in digital armor would come to the rescue of our demoiselle in distress.

    Re: Making Hamentachen!

    Carl, my brother, from what you told me, Shauna is not ashkenazic, so what would she know from hamentachen?

    but, you bring up a good point. there are a number of subtexts to Purim -- it's not just about Beauty Queen Esther being the heroine who saved the people from Hamen's evil plot.

    among other subtexts, the word "Esther" is a variant on Ishtar, Ashtoreth, and, yes, Easter. in other words, it is not necessarily merely coincidental that Purim falls at the time of the early spring harvest in mediterranean climes, just as it is not mere coincidence that the recently celebrated St. Valentine's day fell on what had been the Feast of Lupercalia.

    what does all of this have to do with Shauna? it's simple. if you look at the pictures that Dawn took of Shauna on her site http://www.wyldorchid.com you will see someone who is undoubtedly the reincarnated Assyrian Goddess of Love -- just like the ones that Esau married, much to his mother Rivkah's consternation {chuckling}.

    Dawn, by contrast, is a bubbalah spelled bubba -- a one-woman Mardi Gras, served up like steaming hot jambalya with savory chilli gumbo. as such, perhaps not strictly kosher, but nonetheless lip-smackingly, mouth-wateringly goooood.
