Sleazy Guys+Bad Music=People Banned from Hillel

Last night, we had a party at Hillel that was loads of fun. There was chulent, shesh besh, hookah, good conversation, and the likes. Just because I'm in a vegging out mood and I happen to be on my computer, I will replay some of the more fun points from last night.
I played Shesh Besh with Mark (who calls it Sheesh Beesh because he does the Arabic and I do the Hebrew).
My friends Eli and Pam came and Eli proposed to me over my chulent. Yes, that's right, you read it the way it was. Eli proposed to me.
I was telling some people that I was proposed to and Ben gave me a "counter-offer" with an added bonus of, "if you marry me, I'll let you have as many babies as you want." Definitely something to think about. :)
Brian and some others joined us since they were at the student government's party on the first floor of the building. He was too late for chulent, but someone managed to scrape what was stuck to the sides of the pot for him into a bowl saying, "we give the scraps to the goyim." So the point of that is that that line is funny and to see how many times in a row I can employ the word "that."

Now I will replay the sucky parts.
I don't know who brought them (Tova--I'm looking at you!), but these two guys hijacked the speakers with their iPods and played what had to have been the worst music I've ever heard. When I went over to nicely ask for their iPods to pick something good, they didn't let me. When I tried intimidation, they did not even yeild to me. In conclusion, I hate them and they're never allowed back to Hillel because they have sucky taste in music and because they showed no respect toward EVERYONE ELSE in the room who wanted to hear good music.
That was the only sucky part.

And now, dum da dum, I will express gratitude toward those deserving it.
Thanks to Steve for bringing his hookah (he had a messy time with it, let's just say...).
Thanks to Doni for lending his hookah even though he was not in attendance for those who were hookahing.
Thanks to Randy for coming in early to take the chulent into school for me.
Thanks to Ian, Ben, and Nedenah for accompanying me to my car with the crock pot and Doni's hookah so that I wouldn't have to carry everything myself.
And thanks to my mother for not minding that I keep using up her chulent ingredients. :)

Shabbat Shalom all!

All right, I think I found about twenty words in there that I have no idea what you're talking about. :p

I own a crock pot and know what a hooka is at least. :)

HAHA! I used to include glossaries with some of my posts. I guess this one should be no different.

Hillel: The Jewish student union on campus.
chulent: A stew of beans, barley, potatoes, onions, and meat traditionally eaten by Ashkenazic Jews (Jews of European descent) on the Sabbath. Mine had no meat because I'm a vegetarian.
shesh besh: backgammon.
goyim: gentiles. Sometimes "goy" (singular) or "goyim" (plural) is used derogatorily, but not always. That is why it was so funny. :)
Shabbat Shalom: A peaceful Sabbath (which Jews observe on Saturday).

first, i want to apologize for not having the taste buds for chulent. i happen to know you are an excellent cook, but it's not in my blood, or my genes. also, i don't like potatoes, amoung other ingredients used in chulent.

second, the two guys, stan and paul, are russian. their bad taste in music should not be held against them, but communist russia. also, stan is jewish, i'm not sure about paul. meaning that, you can ban their music, but will have to try and show them good music. also, check out what dima's been trying to make me listen to. in runs similar to their taste.

I'm glad you cracked down on the iPod abuse. Just tonight I took control of the iPod at a party and fixed what can only be considered awful music. I played:

1. Passing me by - Pharchyde
2. Matisyahu - Chop em' down (can you believe my non-jewish friends were down?)
3. Buena Vista Social Club - Chan Chan
4. The Roots - Seed 2.0
5. K-OS - Heaven Only Knows

At which point i left the iPod. If this music is considered bad, i dont' want to be good ;-)

Hope everybody had a good shabbos and some good cholent!!!

Damn! I missed out on the fun stuff. =(

I learned one thing. Chulent tates better with Osem lemon, not chocolate cake. The light lemony taste and soft texture is very refreshing.

Laktes would make a good side dish. maybe I can bring some in next time.

Thanks for providing some measure of entertainment. *tips hat*
