I'm more about a pizza right now.
But we had Sophie and Sam over for the seders. Every time a kid asked a question, they got a little plastic frog with a suction cup thing that you push down and then in a minute or so it jumps up. Sam eventually put his hand up and said "Unkie, I have a question... when do we eat?"

ROFL!! best kinda pizza to make (not sure if it's REALLY kosher for passover) but the pizza sauce or homemade pizza/sketti sauce on mazos and then put cheese/whatever toppings, and either zap it or put it in the oven to melt! Waaala! pizza!

Stefanie makes some kick-butt passover lasagna with matzot instead of noodles.

I went to my first seder in 20 years, which was nice. It was a fairly informal one, but it was nice to get a little Hebrew practice in.

I haven't written about it on LJ-land before, but I jokingly say I was raised "honorary Jewish", as my parents' best friends are a fairly large Jewish family. Because I lived in a tiny rural town, our families made a big point of making sure my brother and I got as culturally broad an upbringing as possible, and that included a pretty heavy exposure to Judaism through that family. After countless visits for Hanukkah, three bat mitzvahs, one bar mitzvah, a passover seder, etc, I actually have a fairly strong bank of childhood "sense memory" of these things.

So, paradoxically, I get these warm and happy feelings when I'm invited over for a seder or get a chance to practice my Hebrew in a way where nobody's going to laugh at me.

Hehehe. I even have a surname that passes. Oddly enough, there's an extra silent vowel that seems to suddenly turn you gentile.

I'm actually eating better than I do the rest of the year, since I've been doing a lot of cooking. (Also, skipping class and thus not being on campus for extended periods of time on Yom Tov helps with that.) Also, I have a New Testament paper due on the 15th, which means tomorrow at sundown. Not sure how it will get done. I've lost 3 working days due to Passover...

We were listening to a radio account of conditions on the lifeboat before the rescue. The provisions were described as being like compressed cardboard with a little vanilla flavoring. My wife asked me "Do all lifeboats carry matzo?
