To all my friends (including neurotic Poilishers, ostentatious Hungarians, kalter Litvaks, constipated Yekkes, hot-headed Moroccans, ignorant Syrians, penny-pinching Persians, provincial Israelis and prost Amerikaners),

May this be a year in which we see only the good in each other.

And remember: If you don't eat right before you begin fasting, you're liable to have a very paradoxical year.

Gmar chatima tova.

Paradox, shmaradox... so long as you start the fast with eggs and potatos and end the fast with a little shnapps you'll be just fine. Have an easy one.

A small shot of Baker's right after kiddush levana sounds perfect. Gmar tov.

TA... No, I find them too filling. I'll just stick with potatoes, eggs and schnapps.

TA,
The chassidisher Russians go with the Poilishers and the misnagdim go with the Litvaks. But if you want to suggest an adjective, feel free.

DB,
LOL. The schnapps on an empty stomach has definitely kicked in.

Don't even suggest that "Russians go with the Poilishers" it an insult. I suggest MAD, because mental is already taken..
