For many reasons. I’m really looking forward to service tonight which I’m sure will be a humble reminder as to why Easter really exists.
It’s also the first Good Friday I’ve ever had off in my history as a New Yorker. In my California & Texas upbringing, most Christian holidays were days off. In the northeast, most Jewish holidays are days off. I am a proud supporter of all holidays, be they Jewish, Christian, or food-related, especially when it means one takes rest from work/school, etc., but this was just such a nice surprise.
Right now I’ve made a pot of coffee to enjoy all to myself, very slowly, as I plan on accomplishing the following things before 7 pm service tonight.
In no particular order:
- Bleach bomb this apartment. This pigsty needs a deep clean. Especially that bathroom. (Sidenote: When your roomie shaves his face regularly that sink is not a pretty sight for long.)
- Food shopping & menu planning for small Sunday Easter brunch. Deviled eggs anyone?
- Bridal shower Thank You’s and some more wedding planning logistics stuff.
- Snuggle with cat/catch up on some fun reading
Hope you’ve enjoyed your Passover or are planning on enjoying your Easter weekend! Looks like tomorrow is Garlic Day btw…
subtitle: movies kyle never wants to watch, again or ever
this is just a shortlist. it is in no way complete. it’s also in no particular order.
- Love Actually
- Pitch Perfect
- When Harry Met Sally
- The Preacher’s Wife
- Wallflower at the Orgy by Nora Ephron, a collection of her articles and short stories from the ’70s when she was still relatively new. Her strong voice & self-deprecating sense of humor is still there, though the cover of the book + the word ‘orgy’ on the title has meant some interesting sideways glances thrown my way on my commute.
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling (duh). I’m an adult that never read any of the Harry Potter series and only made it to the second movie as a pre-teen (or however old I was when the movies came out). At the relentless urging of a friend, I’m reading through - though let me be clear in that I have not committed to reading all 234976 books in the series - and I’m finding it quite enjoyable. Damnit.
