Hand up.

I'm not allowed on Amazon or eBay after midnight.


I spent 3 months straight on Ambien and never bought anything or killed anyone in my sleep. I'm kind of disappointed.


I recently bought a book reviewed in the NY Times because of the setting. I read at night, in bed. This book was so unexpectedly suspenseful that I had what must be an anxiety attack and lost a nights sleep. A series of books I've read over and over, in order, are Isaac Bashevis Singer's "The Manor", "The Estate" and "The Family Moskat". They create such a rich world.


On very rare occasions, I've woken to find my undergarments cast off in the hallway between bedroom and bathroom. I can only think I woke up with a very urgent need to get to the bathroom. Anything else is too disturbing to consider.


~Silk - Oh, now I have to go look it up.
Candy - Man. That does suck. Did you try the spy camera, though? Mayve you did.
JO - This book keeps popping up with little alternative realities. Tonight he mentioned "when the US dropped the atomic bomb on Berlin."
Becs - You wear undergarments to bed? Under your pajamas? Hmm.


You need this book


Seriously -- Yiddish with Dick and Jane will help you with all your Yiddish needs.


My teenage daughters (both currently still asleep in bed although it's after midday and I've been up for HOURS) are revolted at the mere suggestion that underwear not be worn under pjs - even when much younger and more malleable, they resisted so vociferously that I was left feeling vaguely sluttish about my own nightwear choices, where I seize the chance to be free of elastic for a few hours.


Sherri - Oh, that book is cute. What is cute in Yiddish?
Big Dot - Well, yeah! I remember I was not allowed to wear undies with pajamas when I was a child because it supposedly led to bladder infections.


you need a copy of leo rosten's "the joys of yiddish".


Magpie - I imagine Leo Rosten must be better than Babelfish. It doesn't even acknowledge Yiddish.
