Say 'New York' Seven Times, Quickly

It becomes 'nyork'. xD So, yeah, the whole day I have been telling people that they're just nyork. Which is a new word I have invented. Which means, alternately, really cool [loosely] or really stupid [again, loosely].

This is not an oxymoronic word. I swear. I just happen to use it for both purposes. xD

Mmphmph.

No I am NOT babbling to distract myself from the fact that I'm fasting. My head hurts, but I'm not going to go away from the computer or stop listening to my music, because that wont help, first off, and secondly it is what I am using to occupy my thoughts.

Seriously, fasting is really easy when you're not thinking about it. It's only tough in those moments when you're just sitting there, and you think to yourself 'damn, my stomach needs food' and then you're all set on a downward spiral from there into the pit of hungriness.

Or something.

Anyway, point is, I am, while ostensably doing my LO project, stopping myself from running to the fridge every five minutes to open it and stare blankly at the reams of food that *I can't have* because it's a fast.

So, yeah, shurrup.

*runs away*

Thank you..

It was for the Fast of Esther... OK, how do we explain that one? *ponders* Um.

Okay. Let's start at the top. Does the word 'purim' mean anything to you?

Google says, "(Hebrew: פורים Pûrîm English: "Lots") is a joyous Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of Persian Jews from the plot of the evil Haman to exterminate them, as recorded in the Book of Esther." But I hadn't heard of it before, know.

*nods* Thank goodness for Google, then. xD

Well, the Fast of Esther is the day before Purim, when we fast to remember that the Jews fasted before Esther went to the king to get him to stop the killing of the Jews.

I'm sure you could find a better explination using Google, but... there it is in simplicity. ^^

(Sorry I'm so late replying to this! Have been very busy.)

Okay. That makes sense. Thanks!

Google is full of awesome, but a firsthand source is always the best. :)
