6/ I am still wearing this #Purim costume in 2022, Heath Miller from the #Steelers (it's how I answer the door during the day, exchanging mishloach manot)
13/ For the love of HaKadosh Barukh Hu: please label your handmade #Purim mishloach-manot to tell us if they're pareve, milchik etc. And if it's loose store-bought food, please label the hechsher. I hate throwing food out, I want to enjoy your gift!
14/ I sympathize with those who don't like #Purim; they sound like me about the dissolution and nonsense that has transformed Simchat Torah: the noise, chaos, the unrestrained drinking. It's sad b/c the allowance to do melakhah allows flexibility to craft your own best holiday
15/ We were able to have my parents with us for #Purim2022, a great treasure given the rigors and dangers of the pandemic. After a lovely se'uda I put on a few of the @natebargatze specials so we could close out the holiday with comedy. #Purim Sameach everyone!
16/ #Purim

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

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

Daylight Saving Time: "LOL, no"

2/ Naturally, everyone on this list I think is worth reading/following. They make twitter a more educated, welcoming and/or funnier place.

I also want to ask people add pronouns to your bio, b/c I left some people off who didn’t have ‘em & that’s the LAST thing I wanna do today
3/ First, a special thanks to the mutuals who I followed because I was learning so much from and then were gracious to follow:

All very much worth reading.

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:

83.03/ For #PurimKatan I've introduced a new custom: I give out mini ("fun size") candy bars for half-mishloach manot. This year I tested it out with my kids and wouldn't you know it, they approved. Next year, the world!
