Thank you to everyone who commented and expressed excitement about our impending TV debut. In the process, we also unearthed some new commenters/Loyal Readers: Handmade, a fellow Modiinite; Lisa, "long-time reader, first time commenter;" and Esther, who has been secretly following for months, but now publicly declared her Loyalty. So welcome and enjoy your cashew-covered chocolate matzah delight!
Sadly, it seems our 15 minutes are over before they even started. As I suspected, the producers weren't interested in doing a show based around The Rose's Pile of Rubble. But they are looking for people in Israel who have bought property that actually live in said property. So if YOU are interested in becoming a House Hunter International, you can get in touch with Kristen at kristen NEKUDAH lombardo STRUDEL leopardfilms NEKUDAH com. Be sure to tell her aliyahbyaccident sent you!
In other news, Donny has arrived back at the homestead with presents galore. Everyone got something they wanted: Ariella received her very own hopscotch mat, Yaakov got his very own Leapster, and I did not have to take out the garbage last night.
Meanwhile, Yaakov continues to impress us with his Pesach knowledge. He knows all about the ten makkot, Kriat Yam Suf, and seder rituals. In fact, he's come up with some cool traditions of his own. We were looking through a haggadah and I asked him what we break during "yachatz." He correctly responded "matzah." Wow, I thought, let's try another one.
"And karpas? We dip the vegetables in water, right? And what do we put in the water? Lots and lots of....?"
"Cheese," he promptly responded.
So if you're looking for a truly different kind of night, Yaakov is your guide!
