The Siyum

I was working in a Bais Yaakov school for a couple of days. The day of the Siyum HaShas and the day after. OMG, it was bigger than the Oscars, L'Havdil. It was so funny how everyone was all, "Are you going? Am I going? Where can I get tickets?? Do you have one for me? " And there were a gazillion phone calls about it all day. It's actually very nice. If it's sincere. Some people, I think, just wanted to go so they could say they've been there, but whatever. Otherwise, I think it's amazing. I see footage of other ones and it brings me to tears.

The day after, [while we're on the whole Oscars thing,] it was like, "What was she wearing, who was she wearing..." Only here it was, "Who did you see? Where did you go? What time did you get back?" Action, action, action. It's really funny--they even read the Hamodia Daily to catch up. I mean, it's nice that people are frum enough not to want to expose themselves to the pritzus in the Post, although some deal with the bias of the Times, and consider that "Kosher" but that's besides the point. That paper is like 25 pages and it's laughable. Most of it is Associated Press and crappily written articles. I do give them credit for providing the yeshivishe velt with some Kosher reading material. At now they'll partially know what's going on in the world. Well, at least there's no story about Paris Hilton's (WHO???) Sidekick being hacked. (WHAT????) Hehe.

They were talkin in the office, and one woman said, "I sold my tickets online." I gasped. First of all, I was wondering how that was possible. I was imagining people searching eBay and everything. Meanwhile, there's no internet in the office, and that word in itself can get you in Cherem. Then I asked a question. "In-line or online?" She grew defensive and exclaimed, "In-line of course!"

Well, why didn't you just say so??

I don't understand your point about the idiots asking each other who they saw. Should they not have the siyum hashas to prevent this?
