randomness...: April 2007

My opinions, updates on my life, all sorts of "randomness"...

Wanna hear something funny? It's been 9 months since I worked at Chi, and yet I'm still up on their website under "look who's new this summer." Amazing, right?

Shabbas starts in a few minutes, so can't really write...but the 2 second update is some stupid cab driver rear ended me yesterday, so my car's out of commission for a bit, going to this Earth Day thing, the Green Apple Festival on Sunday with Nick Willet (and others), I'm staffing the Shoreshim/JNF Birthright trip May 9th-20th, and this is my favorite new blog.

Shabbat Shalom!

San Francisco was awesome, tons of fun. I'll post more about my trip later. In the meantime, check out the Bonnaroo "Fan Feed" at the bottom of my blog. Still looking for someone to drive down there with me from Chicago, if anyone's game...

I'm down in Miami, getting ready for Pesach with my family and my "extended" family (the kind of family friends that sometimes you forget aren't actually related). Been down here since Friday, and so far it's been great. Gorgeous weather, great company... And I almost didn't make it down here! Missed my flight on Friday (was at the airport 43 minutes before my flight, needed 45 minutes to check my bag, wouldn't let me carry it on...) somehow managed to go standby on a completely different flight (we're talking a flight to a different city here, direct to Ft Lauderdale instead of a layover on my way to Miami) and managed to get on despite the flight being overbooked and everyone checking in... Seriously, I could feel Hashem smiling on me, helping me get down here to be with my family...

While we're getting ready for Pesach, a holiday where we celebrate freedom, it's a perfect time to take a look at the world around us. Josh started this amazing group at U of M, Will Work For Food.
Will Work For Food's Mission Statement:
"Our mission is to better the lives of the millions suffering in Darfur through a simple, yet unique initiative. This initiative is two-fold in order to address the two-part problem facing Darfur: A work portion aimed at raising funds in order to alleviate the short-term problem of suffering, starvation, and disease, as well as an advocacy portion aimed at ending the long-term problem of genocide."

I'm really so impressed with him, he's really done an amazing job with it. Check out his website and check out an article him and his co-chair wrote in the Michigan Daily: Viewpoint: Work for Darfur.

Wishing everyone a Chag Sameach, a Happy Passover!!
