Chad gadya

You win some, you lose some.  I'm not doing so poorly this year, but I struck out on one count: this year is the first one ever in which I have no Seder to go to for Passover.  Kind of a bummer, I must admit.

There aren't many Jews in Cornstate, and the ones I've run into so far are, frankly, not my cup of tea.  I learned last year that going to a Seder with people I don't know and don't much care for isn't really fun.  Since I haven't met anyone I trust to do a Seder the way I'd enjoy it, and since just about anyone who might host or attend a Seder lives at least forty-five minutes down the road from me in one direction or another, and since today was a huge snowstorm anyway, I bagged the effort.  Better alone than in bad company, right?

Sigh.  Guess I'll just have to party by myself this year.


  1. Yo, dude, why IS this night different from all other nights?

  2. How about inviting some friends and sharing the tradition a bit? (I've been to Seders at friends' houses and it was lovely to be included in their tradition.)

  3. That sucks! Here, let me give you the link I promised about how to make pan sauces (aka "fond") and I hope that will make up for things:
