Thanks.

Dovid said...

Mazal tov TRS!

The Real Shliach said...

Thanks.

LE7 said...

Mazal tov. See? I managed to get a 4.0, you passed your test... blogging doesn't have to be detrimental.

The Real Shliach said...

So when guys ask me how to pass tests I tell them to start blogging?

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

Mazal Tov TRS!!

The Real Shliach said...

Thanks.

LE7 said...

Pretty much. That's my advice for getting a 4.0 at this point.

Nemo said...

Who cares that you passed? You have to be really stupid to fail Yeruslavski's test. What's more timely and important: PITTSBURGH STEELERS are going to the SUPERBOWL!!

I guess at least one of my R"H predictions has come true!

Crawling Axe said...

Who cares that you passed? Mashiach is still not here. Look at the bigger picture!


Nah, I am just kidding... Mazal tov. :)

e said...

Hi! Just dropping in to say hi. I hope that soon I, like TRS, will be able to say that I passed Semcha and, like LE7, that I got a 4.0. Let that blessed day come soon, and then I will resume my faithful interaction with y'all here on good old TRS.

LE7 said...

Well good luck e.

The Real Shliach said...

Nemo: go cardinals!
Crawling axe: this is one brick in the beis hamikdash.
e: welcome back. Regarding your reference to good 'ol TRS, go read Nemo's latest.
LE7: he needs it.

Cheerio said...

i know, i know, its way late - but mazel tov!
and e. - dude, you are impressive.

The Real Shliach said...

Thanks.

LE7 said...

Wait e., you're doing both at once?

e said...

indeed I am.

LE7 said...

Very impressive I must say.

The Real Shliach said...

Hardly.

LE7 said...

Hey, keeping a 4.0 is impressive enough...

Cheerio said...

i guess it is trs' moment of glory. let's give it to him, and compliment e on his impressiveness elsewhere.

The Real Shliach said...

I meant that getting a 4.0 is not so hot, and learning 2/3 of melicha in the time it took me to do Bassar B'challav is not so hot either.

e said...

a 4.0 from Toruo is not that hot. If I can keep my GPA in CCNY, that'll a different stroy...

Cheerio said...

dude, sour grapes.

The Real Shliach said...

From me?

LE7 said...

CUNY shouldn't be that hard no? It's not like it's NYU...

Cheerio said...

sounds like it.

Cheerio said...

or should i say read likes it...

e said...

Cuny is not NYU. But it's also very far from Touro.

LE7 said...

Touro is that easy? I was told not to go there since I had a formal secular education but...

The Real Shliach said...

Cheerio: Ouch. I'm actually very proud of Eliezer's journey from gezheh to to educated. Shows that with enough hard work and perseverance even the worst genes can make something of themselves.

Touro: Well, you could just buy a degree from them.

LE7 said...

Oh. Well that is that.

Cheerio said...

ooh, can we go back to counting points? cuz trs just scored like a bajillion with that awesome comment.

LE7 said...

I lost track and I never devised a reward system, so we'd have to start over, but starting over now would put TRS at an advantage and I'm not too keen on that...

e said...

Sure, the mudblood says that it was worth a bajillion points. It seems to me that it was yet another expression of TRS' inferiority complex.

Anyways, everyone knows that the gezhes are the most adept at frying out with class.

Cheerio said...

dude, i'm not even a mudblood. i'm full on muggle. i don't have a drop of gezhe blood. not like some of those people who's family is all fry, but are descended from the maggid/rav/etc etc of somewhere or other.
(why do i feel like the mudblood conversation was an actual conversation i had with someone, and not an internet conversation?)

LE7 said...

I'm more than a muggle. Too bad there isn't a term for that. Maybe half muggle/hippogriff?

The Real Shliach said...

Cheerio: Thanks. I liked it too.

e: Jealous of opportunities you never had?

LE7: Couldn't you be Hagrid or something?

Cheerio said...

someone knows his Harry Potter.

Cheerio said...

how are you on LOTR?

The Real Shliach said...

Put it this way...I got through a third of the Silmarillion before giving up.

Cheerio said...

impressed. my mom read it and told me the cliffnotes version. here's a question: did you read the appendices of LOTR?

The Real Shliach said...

I had a lot of time in 7th grade.

Cheerio said...

now that's great literature...

The Real Shliach said...

You'll have to excuse me from concurring with great enthusiasm. It's been a long time since I was in 7th grade.

Cheerio said...

are you saying you havent read them since 7th grade? duuuude!
are you one of these people i keep coming across who stopped reading non jewish literature in high school?

The Real Shliach said...

I read them again one summer somewhen, and I saw the films, but honestly I don't remember the appendices too well. I mean, I read them, but their content at this time escapes me.

No. In Zal I basically stopped because of a lack of material, and since then I've become selective about what I'll read. Like over Sukkos I went through the first ten Patrick O'Brians.

LE7 said...

My dad likes to think of himself as Hagrid. No joke. :-)

Cheerio said...

LE7 - hagrid's a pretty rockin' dude.
TRS - phew. (also the films were awesome). the appendices had all the stuff like how aragorn and arwen met, etc.
and once again i find myself asking (even though you'll just send me to wikipedia anyway for any actual factual information) who's patrick obrian? and what are the first ten? and what do you like to read? and didnt you sneak books into zal the way i did in highschool and seminary?

The Real Shliach said...

Yeah, go to wiki. He wrote nineteen or twenty incredible books about the sea. I read the first ten (obsessively) over a two week period.

What do I like to read? I've had this conversation before.

No. I was frum back then.

Cheerio said...

about the sea?

The Real Shliach said...

Oh, go look it up on Wiki.
