And knowing is half the battle

So things have been sort of nuts around here with the Holidays and general craziness. Of course by holiday I mean the New Moon release in theaters. I will have more on that in another post.

But today I want to talk about something I don't normally talk about nearly enough.


Now I have no beef to our kosher brethren, in fact I love the culture. I have talked about that on here even. I make latkes on Hanukkah, I watch fiddler on the roof at least once a year and I love Barbara Streisand. Does this qualify me for anything great? I doubt it. But , I just thought I would lay a little bit of ground work here.

I was driving the other day and passed this sign a couple times that day. It struck me as odd and got me thinking.
I am not sure what is going on there. I mean generally speaking isn't Mexico a predominately Catholic country? I mean it is the national religion. (yes I looked it up)

Are there a lot of Jews in Mexico?

So much so that they need a place to worship? And advertise?

I mean I have heard of Messianic Jews (Jews that were born and raised Jewish but converted to Christianity) but this was something I hadn't yet seen.

And so I dub this the Mexianic Jew.

Hey what do I care? Last I checked we have freedom of religion. Worship Elvis for all I care (and yes we do have a church of Elvis in this fine city of roses in which I live).

I just felt I needed to share with the class.

Talk amongst yourselves.

Oh don't act like you've never done this!!!

So last week I got a new purse because the one that I had been using was just too big and I suspected I was toting around far more stuff than I really needed.

So I emptied it out. Normally this isn't really cause for a write up and pictures. (I have a boring life, but not THAT boring) But this I thought spoke volumes of the silly happenings in my life.

This is what I found.....

  • 11 tubes of lipstick (because you just never know)
  • 4 cosmetic bags with misc. things like lotion and perfume samples
  • 3 books (when 1 is never enough)
  • 2 contact cases
  • 1 package of Kleenex
  • 1 checkbook
  • 1 wallet
  • 2 emery boards
  • 4 packs of Tylenol
  • 1 Tupperware container of medicated lotion
  • 6 pens
  • 4 packets of Hydroxycut
  • 1 mini video camera (you never know when someone goes all Rodney King and you need a video camera)
  • 1 package of Tums
  • 2 pair of plastic potty training pants
  • 1 mini Edward doll
I know that everyone has done this but the combination of all this stuff made me laugh.
Seriously I have the most bizarre life :)

Who liknks to me? Ask me how....just kidding. Just click here.
