sorry, I don't want you to go fuck yourselves, that was a lie too.

I should ever go without my pills... it makes me want to be mean to everyone. I morph into bilpha... and I vom alot. rock on.

sheryls Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
hee! you know, i always wanted to know if you had a twin named Bilha. (iirc from hebrew school it was bilha - but was it bilpha? i remember bet-yud-lamed-hay, but i could be wrong)
nate... Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
wait.... is zilpha jewish?
sheryls Back · 17 years, 8 months ago

I have no idea - but her name is very biblical.

Bilha (or Bilpha, as the case may be) and Zilpha were Jacob's 2nd and 3rd wives before Rachael, and after Leah (the daughters of Laban).

..holy crap, how do i remember this stuff?

anyway, they were the handmaidens of Rachael and Leah.

Everyone correct me if i'm wrong :D

zil Back · 17 years, 8 months ago

gah... yes... "zilpha" is very biblical... my irish/catholic relatives held a fancy to it. so there is a Zilpha every other generation. we had some troubles when there were only boys for a bit there... and Zilpho just sounds like a pathetic superhero. word.

I try to block out my biblical brainwashing years but when your very name has such signifigance its kind of hard. dude. nuns with rulers.

Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
Weren't Bilha and Zilpha concubines not wives? I can't believe I remember this stuff either.
Jºnªthªn Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
i thought it was "Zilpah"
sheryls Back · 17 years, 8 months ago

that's quite possible too.

The story i remember was:

Laban promised Rachael to Jacob if he would work for 7 years for him. After 7 years, he tricked Jacob by marrying off his older daugher, Leah, to him (heavy veils. you know).. So he said, okay, another 7 years and you can marry Rachael. So he worked for another 7 years, and got married to Zilpha. Same deal. another 7 years, he got Bilha. Finally, after the last 7 years, he got Rachael.

It all could have just been the way they present it to third graders (i mean, how else could Jacob have kids with them if they weren't married? heavens no ;).

and then they had Ruben, Shimon, Levi, Yehuda, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issascar, Z'vulun, Yosef and Benyamin. (eek, excuse the hebrew pronunciations, that's how i remember them - same with the 10 plagues, i can't name them all in english).

eeek - flashbacks.

nitsita Back · 17 years, 8 months ago sister has two albums by a jewish artist whose name I forget right about now, but the albums are called Izachar and Zevulun....

I had trouble choosing between 2 and 4. I don't like large groups. The smaller the group is, the more likely I am to not become wallflowergirl. But it's also true that I have a small group of people I really care about. That I'm truly comfortable with.

I'm not a people person in the broadest sense, but I do get along with most people and seem to do OK when I'm not overcome with shyness.

Janos Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
I used to be really shy and had no friends. But then I came out of my shell so to speak, and now I've got a nice group of friends... but other people sometimes make me nervous... Anyway, I chose 4.

Some people, as individuals, are cool. I dislike public and large crowds of people. It seems when people get in groups their collective IQ drops to room temperature.
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 17 years, 8 months ago
I know I asked it but I find this a hard question to answer. I do like people and I think people really do like me. That being said I find that I don't have real intimacy with many people and that I'm lonely a great deal of the time.
Arbie Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
You're right Gordon, it is a hard question to answer. I have known the feeling of being in a room full of people I knew and being lonely.Ifinally looked real hard at myself and said"hey, I've done some stuff, friends and lovers have come and gone etc(no need to detail here), and more may be around the corner. Or not. I had better figure out how to make my life something that I can be happy to live and happy to look back on whatever happens." I can hope for more and stuff but in the end I am good enough if that is all there is. The difference is your own perception. Are you lonely or merely alone. I tried to enjoy all the time I had to myself, try to see it as a luxury not a curse. And when you get the chance to give of yourself to another person (platonicly or romanticly) it is all the more special.
emilie is CRANKY Back · 17 years, 8 months ago

WORD, gordondon. i know *exactly* what you mean. :)

Erica: movin' to Ohio!! · 17 years, 8 months ago
i hear all the time that people like me....but i don't pick up on it.....
zil Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
... the only place where people seem to genuinely like me is here... in real life I seem to be too blunt and crass to be prefered company.
nate... Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
Yay for blunt and crass!!!!!
zil Back · 17 years, 8 months ago

yay for people with an apretiation for the blunt and crass!!

Doktor Pepski, kommie · 17 years, 8 months ago

your boogidys are haunting my dreams! Get away AHHH!

For the most part though, people really can't be trusted. The vast majority worry about what is imprtant to them, and what you can do for them. Not just being yer friend, I find anyways. Maybe I just know the wrong ones, I don't know.

goovie is married! · 17 years, 8 months ago
i answered "i hate everyone" because it amused me. i actually like a lot of people a great deal, and i like to meet new people and make new friends and talk a lot. but those feelings are tempered by shyness, social anxiety, and introversion. i am a mystery wrapped in an enigma smothered in secret sauce.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
Arbie Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
Oh, you mean you are normal? Except for that secret sauce stuff. Personally, I like my enigmas covered in chocolate sauce. :-)
