Not too shabby...

Thank the one above I had a pretty good Shabbos. And even a pretty good erev shabbos. Here's me before my haircut.

And another...

And here's after the haircut...

Remember, I only get three haircuts a year...I told the guy to give me a one, but this looks more like a two, which kind of stinks. The peyos are supposed to be a three, as per the instructions of the Rosh, though I guess if I got a two then they should have been a four. Oh well. I guess the barber will have to do some burning, not only for violating the Rosh's will, but also because he didn't give me the cut I wanted.

Once the holy Shabbos began I made my way to the holy confines that are 770 and conversed with several people who want attention, i.e. webjem, tanyachaz, and several who don't, who therefore won't be getting any attention.

Due to my incredible amount of self-control and amazing amount of hiskafia-type powers, I got up at 9:10 and was in 770 by 9:38, allowing me to get an aliyah pretty quickly and Daven with the Minyan. I know, you're impressed. It must be the earliest I've been in 770 for five years or something. Heck, I even did 2/3 of Shnayim Mikrah during kriah, which was preceded by the ceremonial chucking of candy at Ephrayim Baskin, whose Kiddush I attended after the cessation of prayers. Due to my many sins I didn't stay very long, which is pretty sick, and instead went upstairs and chatted with Nemo, SZB, Big Fan, and a few others from my MN days. Also featured, downstairs, was Mottel, and Eliezer Wrightman, who wants me to tell y'all all about his absolutely gorgeous tie, which is mamash morahdik and will no doubt have thousands of Raptors fans/Lubavitch girls swooning as soon as they lay eyes on him. This would also be an appropriate time to mention all the middle-aged women who follow me obsessively, at least that's according to their brother who I mikveh'd with before the whole thing even started.

Oh, and here's an entirely gratuitous picture of part of my family. I hope they don't get mad at me for posting, though I can bet you they will. Well, you have to suffer for art.

Fine, another. That's my brother in law from Denver, if you were wondering.

Two nieces playing...

And one with yours truly...

I must say, I love the kippah. Where'd you pick it up?

viscerally evil said...

wtf? Why is there a " in middle of your name? Was it a misprint? Did they give you a discount?

LE7 said...

Nice haircut and super duper duper cute family if I am qualified to judge.

The Real Shliach said...

e: Jerusalem. With a cobbler.

Visceral evil: Your name says it all.

LE7: But you are. Most definitely.

I would kill you for that if you were my brother and if I were married by the way.

e said...

yeah, you better take it down. That's really bad.

The Real Shliach said...

Yeah, I think I'm going to find a better pic...

EndOfWorld said...

I'm just shocked, that's all

I knew you would say that about your sister. I was going to rephrase it, but my finger hit the 'post'

about the growth...and then the lack of growth. You have to warn people before doing things like that

If I warned them it wouldn't happen.

Easier to change it. e is right.

EndOfWorld said...

The Real Shliach said...

LOL

The Real Shliach said...

It's gone for now...

LE7 said...

Such a loss, I really was enjoying myself by checking out your nieces...

EndOfWorld said...

The Real Shliach said...

Is that a good thing or a bad thing? And I've got another bunch of cute pics coming up...

LE7 said...

EndOfWorld said...

EndOfWorld said...

The Real Shliach said...

EndOfWorld said...

not a bad exchange
i should thank your tznius sister for that

how old are the chicks?

The Real Shliach said...

Batya, the blond, is 3.5, Raiza Miriam is 2.2 or something, and Chaya Mushka is 7 months.

LE7 said...

Stop dangling your delicious nieces in our (virtual) faces! So totally not nice!

The Real Shliach said...

Come to CH-they're always available here.

LE7 said...

Do they need a babysitter?

The Real Shliach said...

Actually...yes. You have one?

LE7 said...

Me. Of course I need to first find a job and move to Crown Heights.

The Real Shliach said...

Sounds like a plan.

Nemo said...

I liked you better with hair.

The Real Shliach said...

Give me a few months...

sarabonne said...

He wants you in hair-you could wear the sheitel
The neices are adorable, I love the babeles facial expression

The Real Shliach said...

Sheitel: I'll take a $4000 kurinsky thank you very much.

Cheerio said...

i have to concur with nemo - i'm a fan of the curly locks.

LE7 said...

Really? I'm a fan of the no locks.

The Real Shliach said...

So depending when you see me...

sarabonne said...

You obviously know more about sheitels then I, $4000? My goodness...well your pocket money mister
I don't mind the locks but seeing as how you only get three haircuts a year, its probably smart to have a close shave.

SZB said...

A. hair always beats no hair.

B. you welcome for the 'harem' coinage.

C. I would expect a more becoming mention.

The Real Shliach said...

Sara: Sources indicate that her new daughter-in-law is getting two of those.
And I'm broke, no worries.

SZB: A. not when you regularly go to mikve it doesn;t.
B. Don't fool yourself, I came up with it a month ago.
C. You have a website to link to?

Crawling Axe said...

Is it really appropriate for a bochur to learn Kehos Chumash? Talk about feeling like a baal teshuva…

What’s next? Avram Fried?

The Real Shliach said...

That's not Kehos, it's Gutnick. And I was doing Shnayim mikrah from it. Happens to be a good print.

Nemo said...

Should all of us conveniently meet up at Buncho Bagels today?

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

What does the rebbe say about super bowl farbrengens?

The Real Shliach said...

Nemo: I'd love to, but I'm back yeshiva already.
Modeh: I'm not sure. Good one.

Nemo said...

A couple years ago Yud Shvat was on the same night as the Superbowl. However, being that real chassidishe people pretend that they're aloof from the Superbowl (while checking the score on their cell phones) the Morristown-come-CH farbrengen went on as usual. Sure enough though, halfway through the farbrengen a guy walks in with the full Dougie's Superbowl special, with subs, wings and fries. Everyone, including the Mashpiyim, started pounding down all the football game delights.

Moral of the story: strict adherence to the Crown Heights Hechsher is bogus.

Nemo said...

With that said, FRIKKING GO STEELERS!

The Real Shliach said...

I forgot before, but CA: I happen to like Avraham Fried.
Nemo: Or strict adherence to hygiene?
Go cardinals!

Crawling Axe said...

I like Avraham Fried too. Plus, he is my rabbi’s brother-in-law. But I was referring to what he said that his music is not for tmimim.

Crawling Axe said...

Nemo, that’s why the real Chassidim are Russian and Israeli. They simply don’t care about the Superbowl. (Now, the World Cup is something entirely different…)
