Hanukkah and Chili

Done for the day with "Robin Hood" writing and I realize that I haven't posted in a couple of days.  I've been a little busy, you see....

But I did want to wish all of you a belated Happy Hanukkah.  Belated because this is the sixth night, but still, the good wishes count, right?

Really not a lot going on here.  I managed to throw together a pot of chili (vegetarian, so it's kosher, even with the cheese...) and still get to my word quota for the day.  The house smells good and my wife didn't have to cook dinner; both good things.  And now I'm going to get me some beer and some chili and enjoy an evening off.

You are really disciplined! I admire how you've been able to stay on track during this rapid turn-around project.

Happy Hanukkah!

Thanks. Once I established a pace for myself it hasn't been that hard to stay with it. But we'll see if that lasts...

I appreciate the encouragement.

For some reason Magical Words seems to be eating any comments I try to post there.

So, I figured I'd post my comment on your Ideal Writer post here:

Great list! I wonder if there's a correlation to how people act at conventions and wedding receptions?

By the way, love the new cover for The Dark-Eyes' War.


Enjoy the holiday.

Okay, first off, your comments were winding up in the spam filter. I've approved them (at least the three I found) and so they're up at MW now. If you continue to have problems with posts, email me and we'll get the site master to help. Thanks for the comments and welcome back to the site. We missed you. And Happy Holidays to you, too.

Happy Hanukkah!

I hope that humor is not inappropriate for Hanukkah, but my youngest son is now a huge fan of the Hanukkah Zombie and goes around the house singing "Jump back, Jack, I'm Jewish and Undead."

(If this makes no sense, you can watch the song here: http://www.livevideo.com/video/414F60B9105847EAACE3292DAF5D127D/futerama-benders-big-score-son.aspx
The set-up is that the earth has been stolen by scammers and the guys in the song are going to help the humans get it back. It's worth it just to see the Chanukah Zombie's tie fighter.)

(One thing I love about Hanukkah is that it refuses to bow down to a single spelling. ;-)

I've always loved the alternate spellings, too, especially since I'm spelling-challenged. And yes, humor is appropriate at nearly all Jewish holidays (except Yom Kippur). Thanks for the link. Happy holidays to you and yours.

Thank you, David. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!

(My son was so delighted with the Chanukah Zombie, that, at our next rollplaying game, he insisted on playing a Jewish elf.)
