Back - huh - stronger than ever!

Anyone know where the title comes from? 10 points to the first person to identify it correctly (and my utmost respect, natch).

Chicago was a blast - what a great trip home it was! Ricky was great in his play, and I had a chance to meet his girlfriend. I also had some wonderful quality time with my brother, Adam. Nice talks, lots of laughs, and some yummy breakfasts out about the town.

Well, I am back at work today, catching up on emails, correspondence, and the like. Although my morning became quite hectic, I had a chance to "make a Jew" today - one of my students converted to Judaism. She is a wonderful woman who has worked hard, and has really embraced her Judaism both internally and externally. I am so proud of her. She will be getting married in April, so I look forward to working with her and fiance for a few more weeks. The icing on the cake was that Lindsay, my sister, got to sit on the Beit Din with me and helped with the process. Yay for Lindsay!

Last week's snowfall continues to confuse those who have the job of cleaning up after it. It is still SO hard to get around the city. Everything is slow and delayed, and nothing starts on time. Thus, with this as inspiration, here's your quote for the day:

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.
(Albert Einstein)

I did in fact "make a Jew!"

She came out a little crispy, so I think I shall cook her less next time.
