Me - President and Troy


Bsd
I know this seems super super self-loving, but my friend took these pictures and made me promise to put them up. Now, here's the challenge: You guys write about them. Do my thing. Go for it. Enjoy.

I want your leathers but you're too tiny...
you look like gypsy pirate (in a good sense-I always wanted to be a pirate)...orange and brown look good on you...

The Real Shliach said...

LE7 said...

YOU BEAT ME! I WANTED TO SAY GYPSY PIRATE! SERIOUS!!

sarabonne said...

At this point I grin evilly, jump out the back window and take off on me stolen boat, the "Pixie" along with me band of fortune tellers(thats the cover-once theyre in the fortune-telling tent we mekarev 'em)

LE7 said...

I love the contrasting patterns and how they're tied together with a running color theme. Reminds me of this outfit me friend wore to her lchaim.

*goes to find picture*

The colors aren't the same, but I think the idea is...

The Real Shliach said...

OK, just answer me one question. How long did it take to get dressed in all that, and how long did it take to put the ensemble together? I'm prepared to be shocked.

Cheerio said...

ok this was a few months ago, so let me see if i can remember... i think, including hair, makeup, jewelry selection, and of course, clothes, it was between 20/30 minutes.
(if you were there, and remember differently, feel free to correct me).

menuch said...

ash!!beauteefull! its a hard look to pull off, all the diff. patterns and colors, but pull it off you did! (and very well, i may add).

Anonymous said...

Notice the way the grey contrasts with the yellow to evoke emotions similar to Beethoven's 96.5 selection....oh wait, are we talking about the car or Cheerio?

Cheerio said...

:P

there. now be happy with blah blah blah

EOW

The Real Shliach said...

blah. Spending more than three minutes getting dressed...

LE7 said...

Well, I wish, but girls take longer.

The Real Shliach said...

ten times as long?

LE7 said...

I'd say I take 15. So 5 times as long, unless I don't have any clean clothes, then were talking hours...

Anonymous said...

I actually take 5 min to get dressed. It helps to have kids fighting on the outside of the bathroom door. Oh, and four of those minutes are spent trying to maneuver around a stack of toys and someone's (who shall remain nameless) parked toddler car.

but of course, i don't look nearly as .....dressed....as Cheerio

EOW

Cheerio said...

this is how i know i've been depressed - or, to use a less charged word, down - i wear my pajamas all day. even outside, sometimes.

Anonymous said...

the ratty ones?

`EOW

Cheerio said...

i'm single. i don't own any non-ratty pjs.

The Real Shliach said...

Ha! I have no ratty pjs! I wear sweat pants and shirt!

EndOfWorld said...

i'm married-i don't either. anyway, now I'm really getting offline. maybe.

Cheerio said...

TRS- dude, those are ratty. i wear basically the same thing.
EOW- you're bursting my bubble of illusions about married life. You'd better get offline before i ask you some awkward question...

Anonymous said...

ask away. i think there's a cloud of mystery surrounding marriage that should be popped.

EOW

LE7 said...

Hey I wear the same thing as TRS! Except I also put on a sweatshirt and a skirt since I'm a tznius maidel. Anywho.

The Real Shliach said...

Yes, but mine look great.

The Real Shliach said...

No, I wear a sweatshirt too.
Nu, EOW, pop it.

Cheerio said...

yeah, i wear a sweatshirt sometimes too

Anonymous said...

ask.

EOW

LE7 said...

So do you fight a lot the first year? Hmmm? Is this true?

Anonymous said...

i would prefer to call them misunderstandings. a fight would involve flinging dishes and police break-ups. We only had shomrim come in....

Anyway, eventually, you learn to accept and respect the other person...yes, even their habit of staying up late and them complaining of being tired the next day (that's me)

EOW

LE7 said...

Hmmm... the box is open and I've got nothin'.

Anonymous said...

btw. everyone talks about how great shana rishona is, how they wish they could be like that again, blah blah blah.

life gets so much smoother, easier, and fun as time goes on. it was great while it happened, but it's also great to move on to the next year.

`eow

The Real Shliach said...

How about food? Where does that come in?

Cheerio said...

is life over when you get married? can you still do new things you want to do?

Anonymous said...

food fight?

`eow

LE7 said...

Yeah is life over?

Anonymous said...

cheerio: life ends, you stay home all day mooning over a guy...i'm not supposed to tell you this, but you sign a secret pact swearing to never do anything fun again....

without the other person, of course.

why do you think life ends when you get married?

`eow

The Real Shliach said...

You throw food at your husband? I was once by a shabbos table where they did that for fun, and my mashpia said it wasn't tznius.

Anonymous said...

throw food at my husband? why the heck would i waste good food that way?


`eow

The Real Shliach said...

Actually, it was just a thing of sugar. It was quite cute.

Cheerio said...

EOW - everyone says - live while you're single, cuz once you have kids, you never do anything ever again.
TRS - aww, man! i am so glad we don't share mashpias....

sarabonne said...

I have a question, do you sleep anymore? you know, now that theres kids n all

LE7 said...

My friends husband pushes her into the snow. There was a few weeks where she would leave shul and where ever they were eating for Shabbos 20 minutes before him...

The Real Shliach said...

Snow. Cold. Miserable.

sarabonne said...

Yeah? wait till it ices over...won't that be fun!

The Real Shliach said...

I know. I hate the winter.

Cheerio said...

it has - and it is!

sarabonne said...

I know, we went "skating" or you did and I couldnt cuz I have snowboots....

LE7 said...

You guys haven't seen anything. Come to Wisconsin.

Do you not sleep EOW?

sarabonne said...

I know, its the one thing that terrifies me-funnily enough...

sarabonne said...

(I was referring to not sleeping by the ay) as for winter, you should all just move to oregon, Im telling you!

LE7 said...

Me too, the thought of waking up every 3 hours for months....

sarabonne said...

*shudder.
Im not gonna think about it...I'm gonna think about happy things...like when they get married...

Cheerio said...

oregon? california, baby...

The Real Shliach said...

Sara: You know my relatives in Oregon?

sarabonne said...

You have relative there? Holy cow, who? Mishuloven? Or wilhelm, or chaiton...

sarabonne said...

nu boychick, spit it out...

The Real Shliach said...

You know who I am? Gezheh I'm not. No, their name is Glauber. Frum, not Lubav.
Plus I'm really close with AY and Fruma in Salem...

sarabonne said...

Gezheh? Translation please...
and I know the Glaubers, I went white water rafting with them this past summer
Fruma and AY I don't know

sarabonne said...

The Real Shliach said...

Nice. Yeah, Harry is my uncle, work the rest out yourself.

You should get to know them.

sarabonne said...

we'll see, Im not going home anytime soon...

The Real Shliach said...

Passover? Btw, gezheh refers to those of vintage lubav lineage.

sarabonne said...

Passover-nope, I'm a bit BT for a reason
oooh, vintage. yichus. I've got a friend with that

The Real Shliach said...

Oh well.

You probably have lots of friends with it. The classy ones are the kind who don't shove it in your face.

sarabonne said...

You speak from experience?

The Real Shliach said...

Yeah.

sarabonne said...

well if it ever happens to me, I'll be sure to throw a grandiose hissy fit.

The Real Shliach said...

If what ever happens to you?

sarabonne said...

If someone pulls the yichus card on me(don't worry, in truth I would probably nod politely and change the subject or....make up my own yichus...)

The Real Shliach said...

How would they do it?

sarabonne said...

How should I know, it hasn't happened yet-I suppose I have classy friends

The Real Shliach said...

It would only really happen in a shidduch situation. Not to be harsh, but that's not happening either.
Still, I could see someone casually dropping names. When my friends do that I casually talk about their ancestor's urine. Because that's all it really means.

sarabonne said...

If yichus is a priority, I probably wouldn't date him anyways so it works out.
Funny about the urine-have they learned yet?

The Real Shliach said...

Exactly. You don't want to marry a snob.

Yes. They don't care.

sarabonne said...

shame, shame. Why don't you become a great Rav so your kids will have yichus and make everyone else miserbale!-that was joke

The Real Shliach said...

Why? I think it's a great idea.

sarabonne said...

lol, but I thought yichus was worth urine in your eyes...
You should still strive to be a great Rav though.

The Real Shliach said...

Other people's yichus is urine in mine eyes.

sarabonne said...

ah, but your own is gold. Lovely how perspective changes things.

The Real Shliach said...

Exactly. But don't worry, I'm not likely to ever have any.

sarabonne said...

Ah, but I was hoping to tell my grandkids about how I used to blog comment with The Real Shliach! Oh well, perhaps I'll make something up instead

The Real Shliach said...

Oh, I'll have that yichus! But it'll be "the infamous TRS". not the type of thing people want their kids to marry into...

sarabonne said...

"beauty is in the eyes of the beholder." (or something similar)
besides, this way you can ensure you don't have any snobs in the family. It can be a good thing

The Real Shliach said...

Of course it's a good thing. It involves me, therefore it's a good thing.

sarabonne said...

Of course. Silly of me to think otherwise.

The Real Shliach said...

Are you a rabbit?

sarabonne said...

"silly rabbit, tricks are for kids."
I prefer Life.

The Real Shliach said...

At this age I prefer savory for breakfast...

sarabonne said...

ah, the post-Life-Fried egg stage?

The Real Shliach said...

Well, actually, eggs are not a bad brekkie...

sarabonne said...

Or lunch. Or dinner (with pastrami of course.)

The Real Shliach said...

Isn't that too much sodium or cholestrol or something?

sarabonne said...

I only eat eggs once everyother day or so. BUT I can eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Otherwise its fish or squash or Life. And sometimes a sandwich. or sushi...

Modeh B'Mitksas said...

I have two responses to yichus snobs (we're not talking about friends):
1-Ich bin ah ihr ainekle fin Avroohim

2- (this one only gets trotted out if they get very annoying)
Oh, you have someone x generations back who had legitimate children. I bet he was the last one.

The Real Shliach said...

Sara: sounds healthy.
Modeh: ahh.

Modeh B'Mitksas said...

c'mon. Don't tell me it doesn't stop them talking yichis. (OK I admit sometimes they switch yichus for an incoherent roar and launch themselves at me, but you can't have everything)

sarabonne said...

Oooh, that does sound fun. Perhaps I'll try that AFTER my hissy fit. Or just nod politely and back away.
TRS-I am healthy, I just made salad and am going to blog about it I'm so proud...

The Real Shliach said...

Me too.

sarabonne said...

Back to topic of this blog: Cheerio, darlin you got great style. I like the blue contrast with the orange, it keeps the outfit dynamic and the boots really are quite fabulous.

Anonymous said...

she is my favorite.

who is she? how can i take her out for a date?

The Real Shliach said...

Cheerio-you got an offer!

Cheerio said...

dont sound so surprised, trs.
anon - ...

The Real Shliach said...

what does -... mean?

Cheerio said...

it means i (for once) dont know what to say.

The Real Shliach said...

-...!

(as in, me too)

Anonymous said...

say yes, and we'll take it from there!

The Real Shliach said...

Nu, Cheerio? This is hilarious!

Cheerio said...

this is pretty hilarious.
well, here's the thing: as a rule, I (and most other girls, I assume) don't date people I don't know.
(Aside from that, there's also the fact that I'm not dating, but that's almost irrelevant when compared to the point I'm trying to bring out. Trying to pick up girls on blogs? Doesn't really work when you're ANONYMOUS!)

le7 said...

Yeah it only works if you login with a google account.

The Real Shliach said...

If you logged in as anonymous?

le7 said...

With a working email.

le7 said...

And a profile picture.

The Real Shliach said...

And your name is "anonymous".

le7 said...

Why not? I'm sure there are hippie parents out there who would name their child as such. They probably have Anonymous, Blank, Rubber Bubble Gum and Tweezers...

The Real Shliach said...

But no one who Cheerio would want to marry. Come to think of it, that's actually who she would...!

le7 said...

It would be very Berkley...

The Real Shliach said...

Exactly.

Anonymous said...

"I (and most other girls, I assume) don't date people I don't know."

i would argue the opposite is true - you date someone you don't know in order to get to know them so that you can see if you like them.

i agree with the second half of your statement though. can't blame a guy for trying! (ok, it's hardly trying, i know.)

The Real Shliach said...

for a small fee I can arrange a meeting...

Anonymous said...

if i wanted a matchmaker, do you think i'd ask a girl out (semi)directly?

The Real Shliach said...

Whatever dude. But let me say that your chances of a date without my interference are zero...

Cheerio said...

um, his chances with your interference are still zero.

Cheerio said...

but anonymous dude - kudos for trying.

The Real Shliach said...

Are you kidding me? I charge him a hundred bucks, you entertain him for three hours, and we split the franklin!

Cheerio said...

there's a word for what you suggest and it begins with a p and ends with an imping.

Cheerio said...

Anon - you didn't quite get my point. Girls don't usually date people when they don't know WHO THEY ARE.

The Real Shliach said...

hey listen, it's a tough economy...

Anonymous said...

cheerio - it may not be common, but it isn't unheard of. in fact, it has a name: blind date!

Cheerio said...

c'mon - how many times do girls go out with a guy not knowing ANYTHING? a name, profession, picture... something? nope, doesn't happen.

The Real Shliach said...

And the only way to set this blind date up is through me! Anon, I expect an email within the hour...

sarabonne said...

bwahaha, lol, this is hilarious

The Real Shliach said...

You can say that again.

Anonymous said...

cheerio - a blind date is not blind if you already know the guy/girl! if it's a name, profession and picture you seek, that could be arranged.

(any emails i send will be directed appropriately and without interference. your offer to assist, though redundant, is appreciated.)

The Real Shliach said...

Hey dude, no worries. Just know you have zero chance now...

Cheerio said...

DUDE! no, i'm not going out with you.

sarabonne said...

lol, valiant attempts though, bravo

The Real Shliach said...

Come on Cheerio! This was gonna be my parnasa for the next month!

Anonymous said...

like i said, can't blame a guy for trying. i can take no for an answer!

Anonymous said...

But if creepy anon would like to meet up with me that would be lovely, we could go dancing... on his face.

The Real Shliach said...

oh j, you're so sweet.
