Week 114 below. 115.02/ #ShavuaTov everyone & hello to the last day of 5782! I admit that I get a special thrill about skipping "Vayehi Noam" even though doing so implies my upcoming week has many days of isurei melakha. I love yuntif, honest I do, but I am a fan of writing & the internet, too.

Week 113 below. 114.02/ 12:50am #Slichot are great for my path of repentance because there's nothing like staying up super late on Motzei Shabbas at my age for filling me with regret. That's part of teshuva, right?

Week 107 thread below. 108.02/ My kids asked if they can watch TV to help get through the fast. I said after chatzot and as long as it's not laugh-inducing or super fun. They asked for an example & this year it's perfect: the home debut of #DeGrom! It's bashert.

1/ This morning a vituperative troll lobbed attacks in response to the thread below. I responded to him in order to fulfill my own ideas of internet ethics & try to model the behavior I'd like to see normalized. 2/ Since I blocked him, I'll recreate the conversation with screencaps (which is proper netiquette for trolls, anyway). He sent two responses in close succession, the first here: (((Adam K))) @adam071373  Disruptive 59% Replying to @Joshua
