94.02/ Health update: still no symptoms from my bout with COVID except for general irritability but it's impossible to know if it's different from my normal state. Isolation is lonely (big, if true) but my overall emotion is fear of making someone else sick. Dread is the worst.
94.03/ I see the #Mets won (this is a fun season so far, especially since I'm not the one getting hit by fastballs in the head) and the #NYR won and are ready for the playoffs. Best of all is post-#NFLDraft Sat. night when I get to see all the gifts my team gave me as a fan. #LGM

91.02/ This is awful, tragic news to read right after Shabbas. How horrible. My deep condolences to the Haskins family.

89.02/ #NachasAlert: my son has a piece (pgs. 2-3) in his high school's Torah journal. The final draft was 3 pages long so this published version was cut down significantly. (Now I get to teach him the academic trick of publishing 'chapters' as articles).

89.03/ This is such a good video, it can be played on an endless loop and it brings a big smile to my face whenever I see it. It's fine while silent but the sound makes it a masterpiece

I'm making the week number three digits because it's getting close to 100 and I want to avoid the double eight weirdness
088.02/ Happy Able To Use The Word Vernal For Once day! #VernalEquinox

088.03/ Sadly, I needed to miss my favorite book sale of all time, the Bryn-Mawr "A Gym Filled With Used Books That You Can Purchase By The Box For A Set Price I Am Not Kidding" Wellsley Book Sale because it was on Purim and Shabbos. Shazbot. Next year?

Thank God #UkraineStillStands
87.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight suspended tonight because - with the mask mandate lifted and no community spread - I'm back to having social functions that I must attend. #SlawCup
87.03/

Me: "How can I get everything done? There are only 24 hours in a day!"

Daylight Saving Time: "LOL, no"

84.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight put off a night because of social obligations. Monday is a legal holiday so we will hopefully have movie night tomorrow night.
84.03/ Couldn't be happier, or prouder, as a #Steelers fan to see they hired Brian Flores to be a senior coach. The team gets top notch talent and they take an anti-racist stand. And, as seen below, it earns respect from players:

Week 79 below.
80.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight continues. This week: "Apollo 13" - a family custom when someone is recovering from having wisdom teeth taken out. And it's pretty great.
80.03/ The #NYR won 7-3, scoring 5 unanswered, and that score is larger than the current 49ers-Packers game. Sports can be weird.

75.02/ Over Shabbos I read my family the #JortsTheCat story & much fun was had by all. I uploaded a PDF of the story with OCR text from images I found on twitter. The pure pics are (1) images of the cats & (2) a "I can't believe it's not Jorts" joke.

75.03/ Had one of those theodicy-inducing funerals this morning. My neighbor, Sari Shalmon zt'l, passed away too young. Her life was dedicated to acts of kindness, teaching Torah and teaching science, and selfless giving. Very sad, hard loss. .ת.נ.צ.ב.ה rpry.org/about/people/1…

71.02/ Dr. Rivka Press Schwartz @Doc_RPS is speaking in my community tonight! Very much looking forward
orthodoxjewishforum.dreamhosters.com/hpedison/
71.02b/ Dr. @Doc_RPS Press Schwartz's talk was excellent and we had a pretty good crowd for a Saturday (night). We all learned quite a lot and I'm proud to have had my children there to listen and absorb. The Q&A was pretty raucous though, but nothing she couldn't handle.

70.02/ So many self-appointed smart guys told me that Garland was doing nothing. They were wrong & caused panic because they are impatient Dunning-Kruger cynics seized by the #Literalist fallacy that if they didn't see DOJ's work, it didn't exist.

70.03/ I’m just one man, but if the supply chain problems are caused by not enough little packets of soy sauce/spicy mustard/duck sauce then I can help out immediately.

I’m also willing to propose they be functionally considered currency instead of bitcryptocoins.

68.02/ This is right in my wheelhouse: scholarship laden pop-culture analysis. This is of #Dune

68.03/ #Dune is an incredibly flawed book that's nonetheless fascinating. Also, as a kid I thought the (pseudo) Arabic was Hebrew. e.g. "Kwisatz Haderach" which I eventually recognized from Midrash (from last week's parsha! God "shortened Eliezer's way"):
