I almost forgot...

...but Rosh Hashanah (and year 5767) began Friday at sundown. I'm not going to services tomorrow, and I'm too whatevered to write something new, so I'll just recopy what I posted for Rosh Hashanah last year.

Continuing on a Jewish vein, I'm going to have a moment of religious thought: to all who read this, please forgive me for any cruel/thoughtless/rude I have done to you during the past year. According to Jewish law, the ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are to be spent in reflection over the past year, including tying up any loose ends and making amends for mistakes made. We're supposed to ask people for forgivness for anything we might have done to them and if they refuse three times, we are forgiven by God because we've made an effort. I don't really believe that God is sitting up there keeping track, but I'd like to know that I've been forgiven for stupid things I've done, rather than letting them fester. I'd like to know if you have forgiven me, but it's not a huge deal, as long as you have.

(Also, to my Muslim friends, happy beginning of Ramadan, I suppose. For Jewish fast days, we wish each other an "easy fast", so I send that sentiment to those of you observing.)
