7 Quick Takes Friday


— 1 —

Oooo, I’m so so so happy! After my handy study Tanakh (Jewish Bible) fell apart from four years of continous use, I got a new JPS translation English and Hebrew Tanakh!

I am super excited about it. ๐Ÿ™‚ It has no commentary, really, but I do have a Stone Commentary, so this one is strictly for my own individual study and enjoyment. It’s really thick, and I suspect it will fall apart eventually as well. Just imagine, it’s twice the entire Old Testament (Hebrew and English side by side) and it’s relatively small… so the ย thickness makes it like a small brick.

I’m in the process of making a very simple music video using a great song that happens to be a psalm and some photos. Well, one photo. The thing is, I can’t find the song… neither is it on my MP3 player, nor can I remember where I put the CD. If anyone sees my Aaron Razel CDs, please tell them to come home.

My friends have a polkadot frenzy. Never thought covered buttons were so much fun. I want to try it, too, dang it! At least I can contribute towards using these lovely buttons. ๐Ÿ˜€

Next time I’m in Ukraine, I want to do the world’s longest tolley bus line. It’s 88 km long, connecting Yalta and Simerfopol. Here is an article in Hungarian, with photos. Google Translate does a half decent job with it.

Eurogames start today in Budapest. I wish I could be there. I wish I could participate. I also wish I could be in London on the 7th, on Trafalgar Square, to sing along with Harel. ๐Ÿ˜€ I wish I wish.

I am buying a violin. I kinda sorta started to teach one of the kids, so I gotta give them the right instrument. He will take violin at a proper music school next year.
