Shabbat Across America/Canada


Tonight's Shabbat Across America and Canada. It will be it's 15th anniversary. It's designed to provide every North American Jew with a 'taste' of Shabbat. It's kind of a way for people to learn more about it. It's run by the National Jewish Outreach Program. Usually, there's at least someone at each table who's willing to answer questions and/or help provide some discussion. I've been to a couple of them. It's a nice idea, and I'm for it. Although, it does get tiring.:icontinoplz:We're not going to it this year. It's also National Pound Cake Day. 

Also, tonight Mom's going to use the duck sauce with some chicken. I haven't had duck sauce in so long! For some reason, it's hard to get over here. Even at the Chinese restaurants. She's making sesame and ginger couscous, and broccoli too. We also got a banana creme pie! Yay!:la:The challah we usually get looks a little dry this time. We also got some soda bread. I love that stuff! Wish it was out all year round. 

Wrote more of chapter 13. I'm setting up more of the history of their world. It's kind of fun.:iconfrancisplz:(Yet, parts of it are very sad.) Also, developing one of the characters more in the story. He's sounding a bit more mysterious than I thought he would be.:iconchibiaustriaplz: 

Worked more on writing and translating the horoscope article in You Maga. Finally got to my horoscope sign. Which is, apparently, Venus. It's the 7th sign. 

Played some more Mozart. It was slightly better than last time. Again, played one of the hardest tunes in that book. I hate how those tend to stay in the upper note range. I can play them. It's just somewhat annoying, and sometimes hurts my ears.:iconwtfukplz:

Kiina was really good this time. The chief played more of a role. Sad, but interesting story. About how the victim died, and managed to be preserved for 15 years in the ground. It's because of grave wax. That's also what happened to kid in France and has been preserved for 80 years. (I think it was in France.) It's pretty nasty stuff, though.:iconchibichinaplz:At least the process of how it happens. Next episode's the finale. Kind of sad. The characters are fun to watch and the stories are fascinating. They're based on real events and stories. It's like, the truth is stranger than fiction.

Worked a little on another character's sheet. He's been more fun to figure out than I thought. I'm about halfway through his sheet. 

Started drawing another character's face. Decided on his expression and drew it out. Will probably edit that tomorrow. Then, I'll get his hair down, and edit the whole thing. And, I'll be done with the first sheet of characters.:iconchibicanadaplz:

Also, worked a little on building descriptions. Really fun getting a better pic of the building in my head. Still working on the same building. The details of it have been fun, too.:iconhappychinaplz:

Played a little of the Sims 2. Hong Kong now has 2 best friends. Taiwan's apparently having problems with getting them. Yet, she's so social? Weird.:iconusaplz:She was promoted to intern. Which, I guess, will be better than a nurse. At least better pay. Working on Hong Kong to get promoted. He probably will once he comes back home. It's all very interesting. Things are different with each family.:iconchibigilbert2plz:

deviantART fave: CUP COLLAB I did not make this! Another entry for the Hetalia version. This time it's Ukraine in Vodka. It's their most popular drink. Kind of cute.

A live performance of Sakuranbo or Cherry by Ai Otsuka. It still sounds great!

A nice uplifting song called Dandelion by Rip Slyme:
