Hi there, I'm Rachel. I'm a 21 year old college graduate (I can finally say that!) who majored in computer science and math and I'm hella nerdy. I'm probably the biggest Avatar fan you will ever meet. I blog about my life, Avatar, Dragonlance, books, Jewish things, vegetarian things, and super cute animals (especially bunnies!) I love making new friends, so please message me if you want to talk! ^_^

Wait…this disease Satoko has…could that be what happened to Keiichi in the first arc?

That’s been one of the only parts I couldn’t figure out, but that would make sense…and would explain a lot.

Also, this arc is progressing well so far but I don’t have high hopes it will end well since it is called the “massacre chapter.”

(I’m on the second season episode 9 btw)

Yes, extremely so! This year is especially bad but other years it took over a year to get my prizes, and by then the gift cards (which were for a local comic store) weren’t even good anymore.

So one thing I’ve been sort of looking into is my family history re: Judaism, like, where along the line did my family stop being religious?

So I know, on my mom’s side, my great-grandma (my mom’s mother’s mom) was really religious. I’m not sure what affiliation she had because I don’t think that was really a thing back then? But my mom said that my great-grandma viewed the world in a very strict dichotomy: us and them, as in us (the Jews) and the Gentiles. She didn’t feel a need to see the world in any other way. As for my Bubby (my mom’s mom), when my mom asked her about her wedding and stuff, it seems like she did get married in/go to an Orthodox shul since she says there was a mechitza and everything. And in terms of language, my great-grandma spoke fluent Yiddish and my Bubby spoke Yiddish growing up, and my mom is the first one in the family line who doesn’t speak it (she knows some phrases and stuff though, and I know almost nothing, just a handful of words). And my Bubby kept kosher in the house when my mom was growing up, and my mom and her brothers are really the first generation that stopped keeping kosher, which is really only one generation above me. (My Bubby doesn’t keep kosher anymore). I know a lot less about my mom’s dad’s family but I think they were less religious.

On my dad’s side, I recently asked my grandma (my dad’s mom) if she kept kosher when she was growing up. She said that she did, which sort of surprised me since I never thought of my Grandma as being religious. On the whole my dad’s side is a lot more secular. But my Grandma said what happened was she married my grandpa, who had fought in WWII and saw a bunch of awful things and because of that came back without believing in God anymore and he didn’t want to keep kosher because he thought it was annoying. So that’s when she stopped. And so my dad and his brothers were not really raised religious.

I just thought it was interesting, tracing exactly where in my family people stopped being observant. Since I’m trying to get more in touch with spiritual stuff and everything. I was raised conservative but our household and lifestyle were mostly secular apart from major holidays and some traditions. Like we don’t keep kosher in my house but we have also never had pork in the house. And we still have mezuzot and stuff. Just food for thought, if anyone cares about this kind of thing.

starthefoxhound said: Yeah, that's me. :) I haven't gotten an e-mail about the prizes either. I sent an e-mail asking about it, but I haven't gotten an answer.

Ah okay so I’m not the only one then.

Yeah they’re pretty disorganized, I figure they’ll get around to it eventually. Or not. I have no idea honestly!
