Well, this was a busy week for sure (and not just yesterday’s telecom outage that affected PLoS all day!). There was cleaning, and shopping, and cooking, and gathering/borrowing extra tables, chairs, plates and silverware, for that One Big Night of the year at our house – the Passover dinner.
Last year, I was in Belgrade at the time of Passover, but that was an exception – every year for the past dozen years or so we have been hosting friends for dinner on this day. I wrote about the way we usually do it two years ago and this year was similar. The differences: first, we always invite a different group of people, some have been before, others are new, and we think they would mesh well. This time, there were about a dozen of us, including a few bloggers you may know – Abel PharmBoy and his daughter, Anton and Erin Zuiker with their daughters, and Sheril Kirshenbaum, among others.
The second difference – different wines: both The Bride of Coturnix and Abel PharmBoy found some amazingly good Israeli wines (I am sure next Friday Fermentable on Terra Sigilatta will be about them).
Next – we got our story about the placement of the orange on the Seder plate right, at least more right than last time around – it is in support of gays and lesbians, and if you thought it was about women – think again.
Fun was had by all. Abel wrote his post about the evening. And some pictures may come up later.
