No TWD for me

Sorry friends :-( I spent all weekend baking my cookies for Operation Baking GALS and I needed a break. I'm going to bend the Dorie rules a little bit and bake the rugelach next week instead of the assigned cake. Hope that's okay, TWD Leaders!

I was supposed to be traveling for work, but this trip fell through. I'll be on the road this weekend and late next week.

I look forward to seeing all the other rugelach bakers! You all give me such nachas, I'm kvelling*. In honor of the fact that you're baking a traditionally Jewish dish, I leave you with some hilarious Haikus for Jews (from David Bader).

"Can't you just leave it?"
the new Jewish mother asks --
umbilical cord.


Hava nagila,
hava nagila, hava....
enough already.


Mom, please! There is no
need to put that dinner roll
in your pocketbook.


Lonely mantra of
Jewish mother: "They never
call, they never write."


Scrabble anarchy
after 'putzhead' is placed on
a triple-word score.


Is one Nobel Prize
so much to ask from a child
after all I've done?


*10 brownie points for a translation. Nu? You could learn a little Yiddish for me, after all I've done.


PS - TWD'ers - if you're responding to a comment I left you about a certain project(wink wink) please email me instead of leaving a comment. It's easier for me to keep track of everyone :-) bethberg12@yahoo.com Thanks so much!!

Love your haikus! Sorry, I picked up only "basic Yiddish" from my Jewish friends as I grew up. You're over my head there! (I also picked up a love of rugelach...Yum!)
