It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Coronation Day Tag

Edge of Forever tagged me again.  You can read my first set of answers here.  This time I will not be picking anyone.  And GaryChapelHill, I read most of your post last night, but my battery ran out of juice.  You rock.  I was living in the DC metro at the time of the Gay Rights rally.  There was so much hope that finally there would be a shift in the consciousness of this nation...still waiting.  I think it's time for the GLBT community to saddle up again.  Those of us straights who love and support you will be there shoulder to shoulder again.  Sadly, that quilt will be far larger this time.

Okay, 6 new things.

1) I hate eggplant, except when Jamil makes it at the Med Deli

2) If I could be any sea animal I'd be an Orca.  If I could be any land animal I'd either be a dog, bear, eagle, or owl.

3) I used to be able to play forehand in tennis with either hand, and switch mid volley because my backhand sucked.

4) When I was a kid I put 52 green seedless grapes in my mouth without choking (yes, I've always had a big mouth).

5) Grace Slick says that I am the crown of creation.

6) When I was a wee lad I wanted to be an astronaut.  I love what I do now and just don't want to keep my job.  Though the idea of being able to spend any part of the next four years in space sounds really fucking awesome right now.
