Just wanted to let you know that we had friends and family in from out of town this weekend and had to entertain. Passover starts tonight and there are seders tonight and tomorrow. I'm getting out of tonight's seder to the horror of my family because I teach a night class on Mondays and refuse to cancel it just to sit in nauseated, irritated agony with 250 old people in the rec room of my grandparents' temple eating kosher prison food. I hate Passover. And last night, I lost my temper with my family, their friends and pretty much everyone who came in contact with me because I hate Passover that much. So give me a couple days to finish the story of Le Spam.

Try not to let them get you down. You know what's right for you and your life.

Passover is my absolute favorite holiday, and it breaks my heart that you hate it. I want to bring you with me to a seder so you can see how much fun it can be and how good the food can taste.

Sorry to hear that. I just got a bunch of pre passover clean up beer from my neighbor yesterday. I keep a couple and give em back at the end of Passover.
check out the robot Seder. Maybe it will brighten your mood.

There was an article on NPR yesterday about making your own gefilte fish...and it actually didn't look nasty...but I suppose it might be too out there for the old folks

Aww, you should come to Austin and attend a Passover Seder with me and my friends. We have really good food and LOTS of flourless chocolate cake! Lots. Of. Cake.

I'm sorry you hate Passover. I have had the fortune of celebrating it with friends in the past and found it all very delightful. I'm making macaroons tomorrow. I will keep good thoughts for you tomorrow while I'm making and eating them and hope everything turns out for the best.

Nothing seems quite as dull as kosher Passover food. Too bad they didn't have tabasco sauce back when it started.
