B started a blog!

Well he started it months ago, but now he's actually posted a post for two days in a row!

Here's one on how he became an atheist

In other news, I got the bill for that cancer genetic testing thing, and had to ask my dad for the money he promised (way back before I was engaged) he would give me for it- since while my principles are strong, the bill was for more money than I have in my bank account right now. :( Apparently my crappy health insurance has a $500 is up with that?

Meanwhile my dad wrote back saying he would be happy to send the money in a shana tova card, and that he wants to call and when would be a good time. I sent back an email telling him i'm free pretty much all the time except during the 5 hours a week I have scheduled teaching-related duties, like teaching, and office hours. That was yesterday, and he has yet to call. When/if he does call, it'll be the first time talking on the phone since I got engaged.

I was just thinking the other day that rosh hashana and my birthday are the two times a year my parents have ever called me in the past (even before I was engaged/dating B, I was the one who always called them), and that it would be weird if they didn't call this year for rosh hashana. But I guess at least my dad will be calling. Still haven't had any contact with my mother since I called to tell her I was engaged and her response was *total silence* then "I have nothing to say, you know how I feel." Lovely.


  1. when I click on the link to B's blog, Google shows me this:

    "Content Warning

    The blog that you are about to view may contain content only suitable for adults."

    and asks If I understand and wish to continue. What's up with that?

  2. I don't know. I think one of his posts uses the word "Fuck" a lot, so google put up that warning

  3. oh, I thought it was because of atheism :)

  4. You really never heard of insurance deductibles before? 500 is actually not so bad

  5. I've heard of it before, it just sucks that I have one that is so high. It's not like I just have $500 sitting around waiting for me to have a medical emergency. That's a month's rent for me!

  6. Hey Eden, just remember (and I should remember this too) not to read your own ideas into what your parents have to say. Don't read too much into it. They do still love us. Our challenge is to see beyond the bullshit and not let our religious or political views ruin our lives.

  7. So more important question, did you find a wedding dress yet?

  8. I don't have a goodle account so here's the question I wanted to leave on B's site:

    Did the overwhelming beauty of much of Isaiah and the other prophets, especially those chapters dealing with universal brotherhood, make any impression?
