Skin Suit! -

Skin suit, how ugly you are when you your hub is material
Everything you do then is immaterial
Live high, skin suit, and heightened you will be
Live free, skin suit, and freed you will be
But stick your face in the ground, skin suit
Back to your ashes will you flee
Live low, skin suit, and lowered will you be
Six feet, skin suit, waits for you and me

Skin suit, where do you hide your beauty?
Muscle blanket, what life pulsates inside you?
Why visit graves, oh wise skin suit, when the only skin there is above ground?
Look in the mirror, skin suit, where are you in there?
Your reputation cannot really be your representation
Like you breathe in air, your soul is there
Like you exhale words, only there are they heard
As long as you can walk, flesh thing, walk in the ways of G-d
Flirtation and flattering are worth like flatulation
Flat-like-the-world-folks fall off the edge fast
Flat pancakes flap and fall down back into pans
Simmering in grease their potential does cease?
Pores blocked no air release
Bigger please!
Let your only limitation be imitation
Acoustic wine
Dine on white curtains and say "He's mine"
Then, dirt body, your skin will shine
Turn yourself just right like the jewel that you are
Catch the light just right and reflect it into the night
Make sparks off your skin and let yourself make eyes' sight bright
At this and that site
First Wedding Catering -

I just came back from catering my first wedding. This morning my friend and chavruta (person I study Gemara with) asked me if I wanted to cater a wedding tonight here in Jerusalem. We would get paid 100 shekel (20 bucks) and be able to take food with us, and both were ingredients in my choosing "yes." We worked from 7PM to 12AM catering the wedding and at the end of the night we took a hefty chunk of food with us and three bottles of drinks. We got paid 150 shekel each instead of 100, which comes to 30 shekel (6 bucks) an hour; not bad and definitely good by Israeli standards, which has a lower minimum wage than does America (about 15-20 shekel, which is 3-4 dollars an hour). I also have a job on Friday (thank G-d) cleaning the house of a rabbi and his before Shabbat, and I get 35 shekel (7 dollars an hour), which is definitely good, and I work for a few hours. Last week I worked 4 hours, which is 120 shekel (or 24 dollars). All of these things are blessings and soon I'm going to check into seeing how to get into the writing world (newspapers, etc...) through an alum from my yeshiva who has a few published works. G-d is good and He's really helping me out, baruch Shemo!

Just thought I'd share that, as it says, "You are known, Hashem, to all Your creations, and of Your kind deeds I will speak."
The International Solidarity Movement - ISM -

A Jew named Adam Shapiro began the International Solidarity Movement, a Jew who is a self-proclaimed atheist and Communist. The ISM is a group that disrespects Israel’s national sovereignty that carries out raid-type missions that compromise Israeli security by putting themselves in the middle of Israeli forces and terrorist operatives. They also risk their own lives and one of them died, Rachel Corrie, when she stood in front of a tractor that ran her over. Her parents went to Israel to show solidarity and they got kidnapped by Palestinian terrorists.

Many countries would have a conniption fit had the ISM set foot in their land, but Israel sits back and allows this kind of thing. The ISM is composed of mentally impoverished and emotionally instable immoral punk rockers that don’t know the first thing about Middle Eastern, Jewish, or Muslim history.

The actions of those Jewish extremists mentioned cannot be seen in a vacuum of the types of assaults, both internal and external, that Israel’s enemies enact on it. It’s enough to have those kinds of enemies with which to contend, but now an idiotic third party of manic depressive college students who divide all of the world’s conflicts into race and class lines but yet still get into college because they checked off the “White” box on their FAFSA forms?! Haha.

I had the luxury of meeting a Mexican guy who wore a keffiyah around his neck at my university. He wildly recalled with a glare in his eyes that he encouraged a young Palestinian boy to throw Molotov cocktails at Israeli soldiers. When I told him that throwing Molotov cocktails at people sets them on fire and it is very hard to put out, he said that he was actually anti-violence.

If the Palestinians knew that the ISM loathes G-d perhaps they would rethink their support.

My bowels make better movements than them. Solidarity, perhaps with evil.
