Dearest board, I haven't been here for a long while but I'd still like to do the semi-annually(?)-holidays-announcement/reminder to Buffistas with religious affiliates.
As you know, I live in Jerusalem (the one and only, of Israel/Palestine/whatever you name it), and spend most of my time in it. And I know this board has religious people on it, or people with religious families and friends.
So if any of you of any faith would like something from here - the Old City, or anywhere else - for Christmas or any other occasion, it's really easy for me to get it and send it overseas. Just remember that I will need some guidance and information (most of what I know about Christianity came from popular culture TV). I'm also OK with rubbing objects against graves/approximated graves/holy-ish locations, if that is a thing.
Profile addy is good, because the chances of me keeping up with Natter are not great and I'll be in the Old City on the 30th.
Y'all be good, people. <3
FYI for anyone who uses Pinboard for your bookmarks: it appears the site is no longer being maintained. Recommend you back them up somewhere.
It's getting on toward that holiday/winter card-sending, warm fuzzy card-receiving season...
Who would like to exchange a holiday card or two (or five, or ten) this year?
If you'd like to sign up, please fill out this Google doc by Monday, 11/27 (please use SHIFT+ENTER to create line breaks in the address section):
Simple guidelines posted at the top of the form -- same ones as always.
This is one of my favorite holiday traditions!
Just popping in for a reminder to sign up for the holiday card exchange if you'd like to join in.
Looking at Monday, 11/27 to have all the names in.
I should get your names to you within about 48 hours.
Oops, I meant 11/28, apparently.
One more reminder if you'd like to join in for holiday cards... link in previous post.
If anyone in Canada or Australia is willing to buy me a Barbie sized Luisa doll from
Encanto and ship it to me before Christmas, please email me at my profile addy. They don’t appear to make it in the US and I can’t get any of the Australian or Canadian stores to ship it to me. ltc is confident that Santa can get her one.
Update: I should be able to run the match program tonight, so keep an eye on your email tomorrow for your holiday card send-ee info.
Hello Buffistas! If any American Buffistas happen to be going out on Record Store Day, and would be willing to help me out. I'm looking for the vinyl release of Prefab Sprout's Steve McQueen. If anyone spies it in their shop, I'll happily cover the price and shipping to me in Canada.
Any Buffista, disabled or allied, is totally welcome to attend PDA's virtual ADA event for the Act's 33rd birthday. Oral historian and author Fred Pelka will discuss his chronicle of the modern disability rights movement "What We Have Done" Wednesday July 26 at 9EET/6PT
(Added bonus: making me look like a leader at work with the "draft-dodging peace freaks". Thank you in advance)
For Buffistas not visiting Natter, please check my profile for the link to a Zoom gathering of community love of JZ this Sunday, August 20, 9am PST/12 PST.
