Manic Monday

L to R: Aryeh Goldsmith, Ariel Beery, Sara Schwimmer, Paul Berger, and Eli "No Website" Valley

Last night I gathered with the usual suspects at Mo Pitkins for Manic Monday, a joint event hosted by PresenTense Magazine and Save the Assistants. The after-work program, conceived by Lilit and Ariel, intends to combine the audiences of Jewish readers and overworked assistants for a monthly unwinding. I found it ironic that ninty percent of the folks who showed up were, like me, self-employed, and therefore could not relate to the daily strife of those Assistants who need Saving. Still, it's always good to get together with my unemployed friends.

Was that photo taken just after you told me about your latest bowel complaints?

Why do all the young unemployed Jews seem so middle class? Is dad still paying an allowance?

Well, by unemployed I mean self-employed. Sometimes it's the same thing.

Either way, I applaud all the young Jews who do creative things and don't exclusively chase the almighty dollar.

Sorry I missed such a good time. Krucoff's hair looks great!
