[O.C.T.O.B.E.R. VI-5] Hut Two Three Four

We’re marching, we’re marching…

You really think that?


This is instead a #TBT post of some sort, although the memories aren’t quite as vivid as in some of my previous #TBT posts.

[O.C.T.O.B.E.R. VI-3] Where Do You Go #tunesday

When searching for an idea for a blog post today, I stumbled across the idea of letting music guide my search, since I often inspire my posts from song names or ideas.

I’m probably not the first one to come up with this hashtag, but I present my #Tunesday post idea which I will do each Tuesday during this round of O.C.T.O.B.E.R.

The only rule: the title of the post must be the title of the eighth song that I hear in a certain context. That context may be a single radio station, a Pandora station or shuffle, a personal-MP3 shuffle, or a Spotify shuffle.

The random number generator landed on “Where Do You Go.”

[Tour of Israel Part 3] Day of Museums

Thursday, June 8 / יום חמישי. 14 סיון

I want to detail the adventures, not the meals!

[M.A.P.L.E. VI-16] Walking tacos

On Sunday night, I volunteered for the Late Night Breakfast at Carthage: an event where students get to eat free food of the breakfast-style variety the night before finals begin.

Last semester, I worked at the popular Crepes station, and this time, I worked at the New Place: the Walking Tacos station. Yes… even though I wouldn’t consider that breakfast food.

Nevertheless, the bar spurred my dinner for Monday, as well as a blog post for Tuesday. Ha!

Lucky numbers

On Friday, Dina and I went to Koi for dinner–might as well have a nice Chinese dinner on the weekend before rice becomes forbidden for a week due to Passover. (Well, since our tradition is to avoid קיטניות (kitniot: including maize, rice, peas, lentils, and beans) in addition to חמץ (chametz: leavened).

It was a nice dinner, and at the end, we of course opened fortune cookies. The reading of the full fortune, as well as the lucky numbers, brought back a memory for me.
