Last Suppers

So here's the story folks: My life is over. OK, not really. Just saying that this is my final post for a while (probably). See, tomorrow night I stop talking to the kallah, and seeing as this beautiful 21st century that we're living in has so many forms of communication, I'm cutting it all out. No blog, no twitter, not even responding to comments on other people's sites. Sure, I'll respond to emails and whatnot, but otherwise? I'm off for a week. And after that? Who's gonna have time after that? So consider this my final post for a while.

Meanwhile, in other news, I had my pre-aufruf aufruf this week in shul. T'was quite cute-I got chamishi, had a ton of sunkists thrown at me, was embarrassed by everyone singing "Mazel Tov" to me, and was even more embarrassed by the kiddush when I got dragged into a dance-type thingamajiggie. The question of what to call this assemblage came up, and it was decided that a pre-aufruf aufruf would more gloriously rejoice in the name "rufruf". I'm glad you agree.

Is that it from TRS? I would hope not, but you know, all good things must come to an end. Perhaps I'll transition to a once or twice a week format, or maybe just give up the ghost. Famous last words, of course, almost like my post from October 15, 2007, when I said:

The great day shall soon arrive. Very soon I move into Yeshiva. Well, not actually Yeshiva, because there's no room here, but rather to a house. What this means in terms of the blog is that I'll probably have less opportunity to write, but hopefully they'll be as insightful as ever. Right.


Did that happen? Of course not. I remember writing a similar post last year when I went to MoTown, but I can't seem to find it, which is just as well, because as y'all well know, I had great mesiras nefesh last year to provide constant TRS goodness. While searching for that post I came across another, which begs for another this year, and how can I disappoint? I guess I won't even go so far as to quote one of five greatest presidents:

You won't have Nixon to kick around anymore, because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference.

So there you go.

Mazel tov and all that. The blogsphere will be missing something while you are gone.

Mushkie said...

MAZAL TOV!!! I would loooove to be there but minor economic constraints apply, and my eftpos card doesn't work online, so I can't buy you anything either...but all the stuff one is supposed to say, and may your wedding be in Yerushalayim with Moshiach!

Mottel said...

Famous last words indeed - once a blogger, always a blogger. Mazel Tov and good luck, rest up and . . . we'll see you again on the other side.

Altie said...

You know, I think I'm actually gonna miss you. I do hope you continue blogging, just cuz its so much fun to argue with you.

Mazal tov, can't wait to see the pictures, I'm not gonna be there. All the best.

le7 said...

He'll probably blog but I doubt there will be as much time to argue with you as you'd like... unless you feel like sponsoring our internet.

Altie said...

Well since I didn't get you a present, and I'm not coming to the wedding, I guess it would be a smal sacrifice to make.

Who do I make the check out to, and where can I send it?

Mottel said...

LE7: I'd keep in mind while commenting that b'pashtus all comments left here end up in TRS's inbox . . .

le7 said...

Altie: I was joking.

Mottel: I know, we're allowed to talk until 7 something tonight. After that, I retreat to only facebook.

le7 said...

Altie: But money is always welcome...

Altie said...

:) I'd rather give a gift.

Can I write you guys a poem?

btw u living in Ch after the wedding?

le7 said...

Yes we are. But we're not going to be there until a month after the wedding.

Altie said...

well then where am i supposed to send a check?

The Real Shliach said...

Qtap+Mushkie+Mottel+Altie: Thanks! These last 2+ years have been great, and hopefully they'll things will just get better and better!

le7: Alas I have nowhere sacred online... (unless you count ESPN of course :)

הצעיר שלמה בן רפאל לבית שריקי ס"ט said...

"My life is over"- Just starting man. Savor it..

Yossi said...

good luck (or take luck...) and "Bloggers zegenin zich nisht!"

Mottel said...

Not to encourage shtusim the week before your chasuna, but you could always do what I did - just blocker her for the week.

sarabonne said...

So it begins. Mazel tov, hatzlacha, (insert Yiddish good wishes), and like Mottel said, once a blogger, always a blogger. You can't quit that easy!

The Real Shliach said...

Shriki: I'm trying...

Yossi: :)

Mottel: And on twitter and blogs also?

Sara: Oh!

Altie said...

You should have a countdown on your blog.

2 hours and 15 minutes left.

and x amount of time till wedding.

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

Mazel Tov. Unfortunately it looks like I won't be able to make the woofwoof but Mazel Tov and all the best. I second Altie, where do I send a gift. (Too broke for 50 dollar salt shakers sorry)

le7 said...

Modeh - I took off the $50 salt shakers... now they're $12.99 lol.

At random times the thought pops into my head, "I can't wait for the trs-le7 wedding!!"

RE: trs' blogging future

He won't be able to keep away. He'll be back. Mark my words.

Cheerio said...

trs is one of the founding blog members! he aint going nowhere, its in his blood.
mazel tov!!!
can't believe we finally made it to this week!

Mottel said...

-Cheerio: One of the founding blog members? Come again?

Nemo said...

This whole one week thing, particularly the way TRS is doing it, is bullshit. Amen selah.

Hope to make the ufruf, but I do have class on Friday afternoon. Bible class, in fact. We'll be discussing the peace treaty with the Gibeonites in Joshua 9.

e said...

Mottel: nobody respects old-school gezhe nowadays, eh?

Nemo: what's so bullshit about it?

Cheerio said...

i should give you your due, mottel.
yours was the first blog i ever read, way back in my seminary days...

Mushkie said...

WOW
I stand in awe of all you long-term bloggers. And I'm trying to work out how to send a present without using the net. Does not appear possible.

Mottel said...

-Cheerio: I hope, then, that I haven't created a monster . . . ;)

Cheerio said...

i leave that up to my readers to determine, mottel!
