Late, But Still Before Yom Kippur

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 forgiveness 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.

(RL update to come later. It's going to be long.)

What's to forgive? :)

Did I ever tell you about my old Cellmate? She wasn't particularly outwardly religious, but she definitely respected Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. One of her things was she would not tell a lie of any kind during the season, and if she had to put a caller off, she would put them on hold, go into her boss's office, make him get up from his desk, then she would tell the caller "He's not at his desk, can he call you back?" It was a thing. :D

Looking forward to the RL update.

I let a lot of people down in the last year, disappearing off into the aether for a while. But I'm back, and I'm hoping I can make up for that.
