L'Shana Tova (is that right?) As you know last week we ate our way through the High Holidays with our loving and varying-degrees-of-Jewish family.

Boo to Mouse and Mom: i am fasting tomorrow for the first time ever. That is all. And there is challah being baked in my apartment. An interesting combination.
The Mouse: me too! i did it last year and will attempt to do it again!

The Boo:that is a big part of it. .. I ate at like 5PM yesterday, then went to the movies and that was it for eating. May have juice if i feel i will pass out or something.

The Mouse: well the holiday starts at sundown last night. so technically that's when you should stop eating. (nice--"stop eating", not "start fasting". Belly half empty, not half full.)

The Mouse: it occurs to me that we might be too hungry to be funny or interesting enough for live blogging.
The Boo: I am having a carrot juice.

Fasting is really not as hard as I thought. Helps if you don't eat late dinner. I love white fish salad and hate chopped liver. Homemade challah rocks. Pickled salmon is too intense for me, and I always thought I'd eat pickled hat rack if someone offered it. Lastly, we are really lucky to have the choice of whether or not to eat a meal. That really came home to me during the break-fast and that, I guess, is the point.
Boo. And Mouse.
