'twas the night before Purim...

yep, Purim is definitely tomorrow night.

the haman men are hanging from the chandelier (although most of them missing arms and legs already, since a certain uncle has graced us with his presence and started the feeding frenzy)

sister2, brother2, and myself are doing last minute costume preparation. although in my case, i started working on my costume at three this afternoon. i was toying with a few ideas, but as a backup, i was just going to leave my uniform on, since i have clinical Purim morning. but at a fabric shop this afternoon, an idea came to me, and at ten thirty pm, my costume was finished.

my dad is practicing his Megillah writing skills, but somehow i doubt he'll finish by tomorrow night. maybe next year...

my mother is working on the shul's chagiga for tomorrow night. am i surprised that people can be so unaccommodating? the deadline was Thursday. and then Thursday night. and then Friday morning. and then Friday afternoon. and then motzai shabbos. and still people are calling to make reservations, or have not yet paid.

brother1 is in yeshiva, but he came home today to collect some odds and ends for his costume. wonder if he'll grace us with his presence this year...

Oh, in my house, eating from the chandelier is punishable by death (or at least no dessert at the seudah).
They've been mighty "heavy handed" in my house when handling the Tupperware container holding the Haman men though... ever since they discovered that broken ones may be consumed BEFORE Purim....
Wishing you and your family a joyous one!
