Personal Service Annoucement

Since I’ve gotten about 9 queries on the subject in 24 hours, I’m going to make an official post and then not say another word on the subject.

Evaluation of weekend at SerandEz:

Food: Good. Especially dessert.

Accommodations: Cozy. ‘Nuff said.

Company: Entertaining. (Nobody told me it was supposed to be interactive entertainment.)

Couch Cushion Count: Sufficient.

Service: Excellent.

Computer Access: Competitive. (Before and after Shobbos. Not during.)

Conversation: Seriously obsessed with dating. (About 4-5 hours of dating discussion over the course of two meals and one afternoon. Singles never seem to tire of it.)

Number of times asked “What are you looking for?”: Once, by the woman who gave me the ride out. (She even had someone in mind. What on earth could I have possibly said to set her off?)

Not recommended for those who like to get their Shobbos bagel, but on the flip side, 3 am adds flavor to any snack.

Would you go back?: Can you spell garlic Parmesan pretzel? (Spell check tells me I can’t.)

And this post, Corner Point, is an example of omphaloskepsis, as is this line.

    Sorry, me. That’s the opholoskeptic (??) part of it.
    In summary, I spent this past Shobbos by SerandEz. They have a small apt, many guests (mostly blogsphere denizens), a high couch-to-floorspace ratio, good food, a cute kid, and brief periods of sleep scheduled in the wee hours of morning.

  2. SaraK – I think I called you guys “entertaining.” And yes, you did. ๐Ÿ˜› But you lot were nothing compared to the Shobbos day folk.
    *sigh* If only I had something to say on the subject.

  3. Uh oh…

    LOL on the “cozy”.

    Sufficient = 11, apparently. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Computer Access: Competitive.

    This is why one person is smart enough to have his own…

    Conversation: Seriously obsessed with dating.

    Well I never…!

    Not recommended for those who like to get their Shobbos bagel, but on the flip side, 3 am adds flavor to any snack.

    AMEN on both counts.

    LOL

    Aww…! You forgot one thing though: Magic table. (Wow, anyone reading this thinks we’re on some serious crack.)

  5. The Magic Table rocks, as does the cute kid. And the couch cushions are good for extra warmth when it’s FREEZING cuz the a/c is on! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Both food and company were excellent, as usual. I think we all need to learn to talk about something besides dating, though. And get more sleep!

    Dessert was great, especially the getting of it. I still can’t believe we did that. ๐Ÿ˜€

    And hellooooo, the Pretzel Store is on my Top 10 List of reasons why I’d ever possibly consider moving to Queens…not going to happen, but if it did, those pretzels would be up there on the list.

    –speak for yourself, I for one feel that there was a severe lack of topic coverage regarding the current geopolitical zeitgeist and its impact on oil prices…oh, and sports–definitely not enough sports talk.

    –sure would have been nice if someone had advanced a different topic…just sayin’ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    This is why one person is smart enough to have his ownโ€ฆ

    ::sigh::
    ‘Tis true, would that we were all so wise…alas

  7. The magic table??? Seriously? You guys need to GET OUT more!
    No I’m kidding, it’s cool and perfect for a packed SerandEz weekend (which is more often than not).
    As a brief passerby over shabbos I can attest to the fact that shabbos day contained many many hours on the topic of dating; But it’s always entertaining to hear new stories that shock you more than the last.
    LONG LIVE TWIST AND ROLL CAFE AND THEIR YUMMY PIZZA!

  8. sure would have been nice if someone had advanced a different topicโ€ฆjust sayinโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hmm… someone I know likes to suggest that people shouldn’t complain without coming up with and trying alternatives… :::COUGHCOUGHCOUGH::: ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. I think I’m even more confused as to what that absurd word means after this usage of it. It’s beginning to make me think of elephants with blood poisoning…

    But you forgot some checklist questions–

    Times asked about the minutest details about family:

    Number of exotic air freshener scents sniffed:

    Odd names dubbed:

    Minutes (gosh, it was only minutes??) spent at boring speech:

    Go ahead
    ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. sure would have been nice if someone had advanced a different topicโ€ฆjust sayinโ€™

    Seriously. Next time, do it yourself if you’re bored.

    And the so-called “magic table” is NOT A SERANDEZ INVENTION! You people really do need to get out more.

  11. Oh, and–

    Times slammed car door on CP:

    (Thanks, Ezzie :-D)

    Times hood went on to protect wavy-gone-straightened hair (you’ve seen proof, B4S!!):

    Number of car rides spent in car seat:

  12. Dating stories are always interesting to listen to, but geopolitics and oil I can also talk about. Why didn’t you bring it up?

    Ezzie, stop crowing. Best card was Britney Spears, of course. The chicken was a fluke.

    Corner Point, see the last line of the first paragraph of the wikipedia entry.

  13. SaraK – I think I called you guys โ€œentertaining.โ€ And yes, you did. ๐Ÿ˜› But you lot were nothing compared to the Shobbos day folk.
    *sigh* If only I had something to say on the subject.

    Glad I wasn’t there on Shabbas day, then. Ezzie, you should have had a dvar Torah to change the subject off of dating.

  14. It was all Corner Point’s fault. She brought up dating by every meal. I didn’t slam the door in her face often enough. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Anyway, I’m not objecting, just observing. If it wasn’t interesting, I would have fallen asleep.

  15. Ezzie, you should have had a dvar Torah to change the subject off of dating.

    :::sigh::: Pirkei Avos Project, Week 2: Still not started.
