Whooboy, what a time.
We had a big family gathering at my aunt's house, and we all read the Hagada and had a great meal (with whooping big glasses to boot. Those things were HUGE!)
I really love the family Passover get-together. We always have a great time, with lots of song-singing and acting.

That's not a bad thing at all, and I really have a great time playing with her, but...

You run, jump, toss them around and exhaust them, and as soon as you sit down to rest, they come up and cry "again!". What a horrible fiendish word 'again'! How can they be so energetic when I'm so pooped?! Why don't they rest?!
I'm just not built for this thing...
Incidently, and also lastly, since this post is getting large, my young and afore-mentioned cousin (who is named Gali, by the way) looks almost alarmingly like "Interview with a Vampire"'s Claudia. She has blond hair in curles that are not nearly as long, but in the general shape. She also has blue eyes and, for some reason, FANGS! I think maybe her teeth are still growing or something, but her feral-cutting-sharpish-teeth (-which-I'm-too-lazy-to-look-the-name-of-u
Well, this was a long post, and there's a new pope (which is unrelated, but congradulations nonetheless) so untill next time, adiue~!
Maybe next time...
