The man who plots the stumbling blocks in the lives of the likes of me

A new record this year: of slightly more than a hundred hamantashn made this evening by my mother and myself, only three unfolded and bubbled out while baking. We ate the evidence anyway. And also some non-evidence. In addition to the traditional flavors of apricot, poppy seed, and prune, this year we tried a raspberry filling, which produces an effect not unpleasantly like a jam donut.

Having just heard Momus' "I Was a Maoist Intellectual" for the first time, I thought maybe I was over-reading the line about the hotel doorman as a shout-out to Murnau's Der letzte Mann (1924), but then I saw that his second most recent album is heavily inspired by Pasolini, so I stopped worrying.

My headache levels were within endurable limits today, which is why I suppose I found out that my credit card information has been hacked.

Have a friend looking for a good hamantashn recipe. Hers came out crumbly this year.

Glad you had a (mostly) good holiday!

Yay hamantashn!

I hope the credit card stuff is easily dealt with, grr.

I hear you on the credit card AAAUGH. I had to change my credit card number twice last year, once because the credit card company spontaneously sent me a new card due to an unspecified leak, once because of fraudulent transactions necessitating a number change. It was incredibly annoying.

I hope you have a fun Purim!

Oh no! /o\ I hope at least it's easily sorted - and I hope the hamantashn go down well!

You're so admirable! My hamantaschen efforts went all awry this year because I accidentally used the bread flour my roommate had left out from soda bread instead of regular flour .... I may try again on the weekend.

PS /How/ did you find out you’d been hacked? I should probably check my own...

I have a batch of s'morementashen dough to roll and deal with tonight, but we didn't make any traditional ones this year. I feel like I ought to, and yet. So much like work. So I salute your industriousness and wish your family a chag Purim sameach!

I'm happy about the hamantashn, glad that your headache is less, and upset about your credit card being hacked. I've got a long-standing plan to meet with a friend, who says she can help me freeze my credit, to protect me from similar hacks. (I've been baffled by the process.)

You have to be less good at making hamantashn, otherwise you won't have much evidence to eat!

*very* sorry to hear about the credit card. Really one of the random, throw-of-the-dice monsters of our current age.

A hundred hamantashn! That's indeed impressive; I'm too lazy to bake in general, so I'll just admire yours from afar.

Thanks for sharing the song! It's a wonderful listen.
