JBlog Resurrector

14 Sep

I'm sorry.

There’s some great stuff out there on old defunct blogs. I’ve been saying for a while- mostly to myself- that someone who’s been active in the Jblogosphere since early on (I’m looking at you Baal Habos) should really make a collection of all the best posts so newcomers can read them. Maybe a few people can get together and bring up posts they generally agree are important/funny/historic etc, and post the results in one megablog.

Regardless of whether anything actually happens, I think I’m gonna start posting some of them here. (If you find anything you like, please send it in via email or comment.) Here’s a cute one from the now defunct MOChassid:

Like Father, Like Son

For the nine-plus years that I have been going to my shul one thing has been very constant. Every Shabbos afternoon, one of the old-timers sits directly across from the Rebbe during Seudah Shlishis and immediately falls asleep when the Rebbe starts to talk. Not sometimes. Not most times. Every week, mamash.

This week his son, who lives in Israel, came for Shabbos. His son sat next to his father during Seudah Shlishis. As soon as the Rebbe opened his mouth to speak, the two of them nodded out. A double-bobble-head-doll effect.

It was a beautiful thing.

    🙂 I’m super busy. And worn out. But I’m still reading you.

      I hear that, it can really wear you out. Well, if you remember any good ones, or ones that you wrote, and feel like posting them here, please let me know.

    Pretty much story of my dad in shul… only to be woken when the rest of the congregation stands up. Then repeat. A beautiful thing indeed!

    My grandfather is the exact same way. Since I was a kid, I remember, as soon as the Rabbi starts talking, he’s out.

    My mom does that, but then she yells at me if I don’t remember what the rabbi was saying. “Pay attention! We don’t come to schul for you to dick around!” My mom is a delightful mix of strange, and “HOLY CRAP!!!”
