Same Ol' Schtick

Feelin' kinda... meshuggeneh Music: Simple Minds

Yet another blog entry to test more of Tanner's blog features. Gotta keep at it to find those bugs. Gotta keep pushing the envelope. Gotta keep stretching the boundaries. Gotta break 4:40.

I will need a new schtick soon for my blog, if I'm to keep blogging at all. Tanner's got the whole "I wrote this whole thing and you must respect me!" thing. The Normal has the "My very existence is the central rotational axis of this website as exemplified by the fact of my blog appearing on the front page" angle. Jayrock seems to be taking the "I'll flatter my blog with platitudinous sincerity" route. And I can appreciate all of those, truly. But once gamma-testing is over, what's to be my unique, blogarific signature? I mean, I don't even have any cats I could write about.

I think you spelled meshugganah wrong, but let's check with Rosen.

I think you should devote your blog to all mis-spellings, factual and grammatical errors on the site. You'd excel at that!

I took Rosen's original cue on how to spell "Hanukkah" when she said, "...since adapting a foreign word to the english language is an inexact science, you really can spell it any of the ways you mentioned..."

I couldn't say if the same rules apply to Yiddish as they do to Hebrew, however, so yes, we can only hope that the resident ARF Expert on Judaic Etymological Preferences and Practices will chime in.

meshuggeneh! dex spelled it right. it means "crazy" for all you beginners out there. yiddish, the culturally rich language for the poor... it is a fascinating language and i highly recommend the definitive yiddish dictionary/anecdotal reference guide "the joys of yiddish" by leo rosten (recently updated after his death into "the new joys of yiddish"). i'd post the link here if i knew how to do that.

This used to say something funny but then Tanner's sight got hacked and instead it linked to an Indian porn site. Alas!
