Week 163 below.

(Twitter is so unwieldy & fakakt that I'm finding it harder to write & interact with it, hence why I didn't even realize I didn't start this until now). 164.02/ #ChochmatNashim thread for #Nitzavim 5782 & the first #Vayelech of 5783 (this year has two) which was the first time I converted the thread into a PDF. @ChochmatNashim. #Vayeilech #Vayelekh.

Week 162 below. 163.02/ Shavua tov. I checked the Met game Motzei Shabbas and see Carrasco has yet again had a terrible outing. He's been through a lot, medically, but it's getting embarrassing. (His nickname is "cookie" and I found this great gif that illustrates his athletic results)

Week 157 below. 158.02/ My daughter asked me about the stories of demons in the Talmud whether they were real or not (note: today's Daf has the famous story of Shlomo & Ashmodai). It's a long answer but I mentioned that some natural phenomena really appear demonic. See:

153D.01/ The utter incompetents running Twitter have bolloxed the way threads work and week 153 was chopped up in the unrolling process. I'm going to repost the whole thing in an attempt to salvage what I wrote. These will be indicated by the "D" designation. 153D.05/ So far the threading is still broken. It's another example of some unqualified "owner" not understanding his product, business and (in many ways) the world that they share with others. A pathetic and tragic waste.

Week 153 below. 154.02/ Finally took the kids to #SpiderVerse They said they wanted to see it as soon as possible so to avoid spoilers. They worked hard at that and the ending caught them enough by surprise that I'd say mission accomplished. (PS good film, worth seeing in the theater)

Week 152 below. 153.04/ The number of goofy mistakes being made - especially by the #Mets - in this afternoon's game defies fiction. Who would have the imagination to craft such boneheaded mistakes? (See the 1st inning bases loaded double-play to the latest error by Walker) #NYMvHOU #LGM

Week 149 (ish) below. 150.02/ I'm finally back into Twitter on my laptop. It's been weeks, but I was able to navigate the hurdles. Even though it's official "week 151", I'll use the remainders of this truncated thread to log my posts from weeks 149-150 and then start 151. Whew.
