the popular thing is to go away for Pesach-the standard, of course, is hotels. upstate, Connecticut, anywhere but Brooklyn. the further away the hotel, the better it is. and if you go a hotel with famous speakers and rabbis, or Jewish singers, you're really fulfilling your Simchat Y't.

but if you want to outdo the hotel-goers, pick someplace even further away; Florida, California, someplace where it's so hot that you have to stay inside all day for fear of dehydration or heatstroke. or you can even leave the US and go to Mexico or Cancun.

you can tell who went away for Pesach, because they come back all nice and tanned. stupid brown people. one year I'm going to go to like Idaho for Pesach, and when all the Miami people talk about their nice tans, I'll say "big deal. i had lots of potatoes over Y't."

but then of course I'll just be on par with the rest of the Jewish people all around the world.

I am proud to say that I have not had a single potato all Pesach. (Sweet potatoes don't count.) And I don't particularly WANT to go to a hotel... away, yes, but not to a hotel. The very thought gives me the shivers!!

I'm sure this year in particular you'll hate all the people who go to sunny warm places for pesach and come back tanned, because it's FREEEEEEEZING!! crazy pesach weather! ahhh

how is it even possible that you didn't eat a single potato!?!?!
