Got tired of that shit pretty quick. Told my father I really didn't care, did not want to go. He let me drop out.

Within a year or so I told him I didn't want to go to synagogue at all anymore. He didn't really put up a fight. We were in a conservative temple but we never kept kosher or anything. I never fasted for Yom Kippur once, didn't even try. I think one year I even encouraged other kids to ditch services to go to the nearby McDonald's.

Neither of my parents were Bar or Bat Mitzvah'd, so, when I quit the business they really couldn't say much. My sister never got Bat Mizvah'd cos she just didn't give a shit. We never went to temple, ever, unless it was for a wedding, funeral or Bar Mitzvah...not for the high holidays, not for any holiday. Like all sorts of hypocritical, conservative Jews, we cared a lot more about the cultural/secular aspects of our identity. I really don't know why I did the g-d thing for so long, considering I went agnostic ages ago. I turned down that free trip to Israel more than once because I didn't feel like being brainwashed over there. No trip is ever free, especially amongst the tribe.

Fucking Hebrew High, holy shit. I'd have laughed my parents out of town if they had suggested that to me.

All this time I thought my location slightly offended you, even though you complimented me on it once.

I just can't justify spending more than 45 minutes or so on a terrible album. That one is like double that, same reason I've never heard St. Anger in full (though the songs I have heard are indeed a riot).

I worry about stupid shit all the time.

I'm putting my vinyl back in the cabinets, sorting them in to three piles: keep (for now), husband's, and trade. I found some Who bootlegs and looked one of them up just for fun. The price online ranges from $49.99 (sold out) to $150.

Yikes.

Not thrilled about giving up four firsts in one offseason and taking on Richardson's deal.
