Can I do it?

I have a goal for the next week.

I recent comment by someone other than my regular visitors got me thinking. During the next week, I need to see if I can attract anyone besides Air Time, Still Wonderin' (who incidentally is trying to pull a MoChassid variation) & OrthoMom (where have you been? I thought we were a clique??) to my blog. Wack-jobs like Vos Iz Neias don't count.

Ready, set, go!

I might not always comment but I've become a regular visitor since I discovered your blog several days ago.
Some of us like to "comment from a distance"...

Hey thanks! I didn't know you three were accepting new membership! I'm honored, truly. What is it, suddenly I'm allowed to join now that you know I'm not middle-aged?;)

TP: and I've been reading yours for a while too. Great stuff. and I know what you mean by "commenting from a distance", I've been doing it forever-usually cuz I have nothing smart to add.

 
At 2:41 PM, Blogger Just Passing Through said...

Mom, of course you're in. We're not exclusive yet. (don't take that the wrong way, lol)
Middle aged?? What IS that line anyhow?

like the blog :)))))

Well last week you were shocked to hear I was younger than 40. So now I'm interesting, huh? Your'e SO ageist! And I don't know what the line is, but being under thirty, I am definitely NOT over it!

 
At 3:01 PM, Blogger Just Passing Through said...

Hello Buttercup. (I always wanted to say that!)

Mom, under 30? Then you're definitely in! :-) What do you say guys?

(ageist-is that a real word??)

 
At 3:02 PM, Blogger orthomom said...

Yup. It's a real word. As in "ageism is the new racism".

 
At 3:11 PM, Blogger Just Passing Through said...

and here it is. I thought you were pulling my leg so I looked it up.

age·ism also ag·ism
n. Discrimination based on age, especially prejudice against the elderly

 
At 3:20 PM, Blogger orthomom said...

See? Real word. You're SO sexist!

 
At 3:26 PM, Blogger Just Passing Through said...

Well, here I can get away with it. If this conversation were in person, I'd probably be the biggest pushover. I'm such a wimp.

Air? I can use some help here...

 
At 3:36 PM, Blogger orthomom said...

Calling in the troops?

 
At 3:52 PM, Blogger Just Passing Through said...

Like I said, I'm a wimp. Although it seems that AirTime is too busy fighting with DovBear.

 
At 3:59 PM, Blogger torontopearl said...

If we're talking age here, then I admit I'm a senior citizen-- 43 -- but my young kids, my sense of immature self and my FBC (frum but cool) lifestyle keep me young and hoppin'.
Am I still allowed to visit?

 
At 4:43 PM, Blogger Just Passing Through said...

Pearl:

FBC. I like.

Yes. You're a Chrontonian so you're allowed to visit. What are of Chrono are you in? What shul?

 
At 7:51 PM, Blogger torontopearl said...

Aside from your use, never heard the term "Chrontonian" -- I've been called many things, but not that. What are its origins?

I'm a "northerner-- Thornhill, a BAYT person and another shul, too, up in this neck of the woods. That's all you'll get from me. You can play Jewish Geography with me, though. I know lots of names, even if I don't know the people!

 
At 10:35 PM, Blogger Air Time said...

I had to go to a meeting that took all afternoon, so I missed some quality blog time.

Admittedly I was the one who thought orthomom was over 40. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

 
At 10:35 PM, Blogger Just Passing Through said...

When someone asks you where you live and you reply "Toronto", doesn't it sound like "Chrono". Say "Chrono" ('ch' like cheese) and you'll see :-)

BAYT and another shul, huh? How many other shuls are there already up there? Lubavitch? Would you believe I remember the BAYT when they were davening in the house across the street? (never mind that I remember when the city ended at Steels)

By the way, what is the plan to get a hundred comments? Tell the world that you believe in God, but that there are no miracles anymore? That the world is rational and anyone who thinks otherwise is a moron?

Sorry, that is so yesterday.

 
At 10:42 PM, Blogger orthomom said...

I'M NOT FORTY!!! (Not that there's anything wrong with that).

 
At 10:42 PM, Blogger torontopearl said...

Well, next time you're "just passing through" Toronto, visit Thornhill and you'll see what's happening to it. If you don't travel up north Bathurst Street for a month, you miss a whole new subdivision going in!
Yes, lots of bigger shuls, lots of smaller minyanim, too.
But I'm a fairly recent immigrant to Thornhill...I was once so sure I'd never live in this part of town, but I conformed!

 
At 10:44 PM, Blogger orthomom said...

Ya know, I'm half Canadian too. One of my parents is Canadian. I still have lots of family there and visit a few times a year. (I'm still not 40, though).

Hey, that will get you 250 comments at least.

mom: so you're a half-canadian, multi-armed mother under 40. wow. I think we're narrowimg it down. You may live on my block.

Air: welcome back from soaking your sorrows of losing the game in the local pub. glad to have you back.

Pearl: I was just there Pesach, but I was "down south" and didn't get out much.

Godol: I could have Shifra post. That'll do it.

As it stands, you've officially broken this blog's comment record! The irony overwhelms me.

 
At 12:04 AM, Blogger orthomom said...

I just helped you tie my record! 25 comments! (But to be fair to myself, I don't have a little clique like you do.)

 
At 12:20 AM, Blogger Just Passing Through said...

Well, now you do!

 
At 1:03 AM, Blogger orthomom said...

Can you e-mail me? I need to ask you s/t.

 
At 2:48 PM, Blogger Air Time said...

How do you have -1 person linking to you in Yahoo

 
At 11:26 AM, Blogger tuesdaywishes said...

I'll join in. I'm in Toronto, and since I pronounce it with a "T", I'm obviously fairly new here.

 
At 11:35 AM, Blogger Just Passing Through said...

I could be wrong after all. Do you notice people pronouncing it Ch'rono? Take the time and listen.

 
At 8:22 AM, Blogger job opportunitya said...
