Morton hears a moo

When it precipitates, the salt comes out in vast torrents. Of course, if NY, has its way, there will be no more salt food. Aside from the obvious, like how will they serve cold cuts, there remains a deeper issue. Generally, in order to stop something, it's wise to not only stop the result but also the effect. In this case, will NY stop the rain so that the salt will stop pouring? I merely inquire.

In any case, a big Mazal Tov to Yossi and Bat Sheva Shomer on their wedding last night. It was quite the wedding, as these things go, and Yossi danced very nicely. I'd post some photos of myself from the wedding, but none of the websites have posted anything yet, so perhaps I'll post some at a later time. I also had quite the tête-à-têt with Rabbi Chaim Schapiro, among others (as in, I had conversations with others, not that the tête-à-têt was with others, which of course is impossible.

Earlier in the day I bumped into the several times aforementioned Shaya Lowenstein and his bride to be, Mushka Raigorodsky, who informed me their plans to be nuptialized in beautiful Los Angeles, California. Did I just say beautiful? Ha! The only beautiful part of LA, CA, is inside 7215 Waring Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90046. Regardless, I asked the future Lowensteins if they'd be flying me out to their wedding as part of the shadchanus gelt they owe me. I was told to take my wife for a honeymoon in LA. Forget that LA is a terrible place for a honeymoon, and that attending someone you don't know from bean's wedding for six hours is a miserable thing which I would never do to my wife, I still thought my ticket should be sponsored- after all, I made the shidduch, correct (it would be difficult to fly a basement anywhere)? Shaya mentioned that just like I went to my shadchan's wedding, I should go to his. As the Rosh would say, "touché"!

Update

Big Mazal Tov to Zalman Friedman (Big Fan) on his engagement to Brochie Marazov (presumably a future big fan).

Also, here's a couple pics of yours truly at last night's wedding, courtesy of COL.

In this pic you can see me and Chaz looking into each other's eyes. Rather strange.
Only two of the people in this pic are currently married. Email me if you want info about any of the others...

Dovid said...

I can feel that last paragraph bating me for comments, beckoning me to respond...

The Real Shliach said...

Yossi: You must have come late, because I didn't see you.

Dovid: Nu?

Yossi said...

The Real Shliach said...

You can't just list a bunch of men without saying how many goats each one is worth. Sheesh.

dowy said...

i dint think u can claim any credit for shayas engagement being that he stayed in my apartment, which has a very strong sagula.

The Real Shliach said...

Sara: Turkeys?

Dowy: nu, what about you?

Nemo said...

Save for maybe one or two, these guys all look like a bunch of tshukies.

The Real Shliach said...

I'd say it's more 60/40.

Nemo said...

For obvious reasons, you have a bias.

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

what's a thsukie? And the only one I think is worth asking about is the one covering his face.

The Real Shliach said...

CA: It can't be too obvious, because I know not of which you speak.

Modeh: It's a pejorative term for a BT.

Crawling Axe said...

Hmm?

The Real Shliach said...

Oh, whoops. Obviously that was supposed to be directed towards Nemo, not you.
