Mr. Goldish? Your Report, Sir

On at least two separate occasions, Ezzie, partycrasher (check the list of his collaborations here) of the Judeoblogosphere, asked me for a full and updated Checklist Checklist of Bloggy people who I've met. So I told him I would do it once I meet him. Vehameivin yavin (viyhhakeh ‘ad hasof).

Key:
= have met in RL
√! = met in RL before knowing about their blog
√* = met in an unplanned situation in RL, stalker-style
√^ = they "stalked" me!
√? = pretty sure met in RL, but no independent verification
√~ = communicated with by an RL medium, but no physical encounter
√º = sushi with Steg™
X = almost met in RL

Yay! A post! And a shout out! In one!

My blog people I've met list is definitely much shorter than yours. Then again, I'm definitely much shorter than you...

I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad that I live in Chicago. Ever hear of "7 degrees of Steg"? lol

Blogger Ezzie said...

LOL. Is partycrasher a negative term?

Anyways... it was a pleasure meeting you. Now, if only this %^&* phone would stop ringing! Sorry for the rudeness, and may we do it again soon.

Hey, I made your blogroll! But wait - should Ser have an ayin? And she uses a sin, not a samech... ah, the dilemmas. And why is my name first!? Hmmm...

Anyways, invite for future is genuine. Sorry I had to run so quickly, too. On a scale of 1-10, I think I get an 8 in the "rude as a NYer" category. :)

On your next trip in, war or no war, we will meet (there is a nice little sushi bar in Kfar Saba , if you'd like).

Knitter of Shiny Things:

Uhm... no comment?

Neil Harris:

No, in fact i have not heard of "7 degrees of Steg"... i hope those degrees are Celsius, not Fahrenheit ;-) .

Ezzie:

Well, it's not as bad as "collaborator", is it? :-P
Sorry i never added you before. And i couldn't remember how to spell Serach, so i decided to just transliterate it all Yiddish-style... and backwards. There are very few people on my blogroll whose link is actually identical to either their URL, blog name, or screenname.
And hey, if someone's got to be the NYer, it might as well be you ;-) .

Out of Step in Kfar Saba:

Sounds like a plan!

Steg: Huh? You come to us for shabbat, and leave out, "the family" ???

Good thing my wife doesn't read your blog ;-)

8/16/2006 7:34 AM  
Blogger Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

Jameel:

That's exactly the point! David's family participates in his blog, yours does not; therefore, your family, as nice as they are, are not bloggy people :-P .

Maybe i'll just change the "and family" to "and Zahava", though.

What do the parentheses mean around the exclamation point after the check after The LabRab's name?

Mar Gavriel:

That i had heard of some of his relatives before meeting them, but not necessarily read their blogs, and met some of them before realizing who they were exactly.

NYer? Ouch. Ouch. And here, I thought we were on good terms... ;)

We're a confusing bunch to nail down, aren't we? :)

Is there a long waiting list for Sushi with Steg (TM)? If not, sign me up!

8/16/2006 12:38 PM  
Blogger Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

Lab Rab:

yes you are!

M C Aryeh (and not McAryeh as i originally thought):

no waiting list, just email me ;-)

LOL

Hey, nobody wants sushi with Ezzie?! Hmph. What have you been telling, Steg?!

8/16/2006 1:18 PM  
Blogger PsychoToddler said...

Egad what a complicated system. So it looks like you've been stalked as often as you have stalked?

8/16/2006 2:18 PM  
Blogger Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

Ezzie:

Me? Nothing! Nothing, i tell you!
Maybe i should have told them that you have good taste in appetizers, then they'll want to eat with you ;-) .

Psychotoddler:

Yup, looks like it. Although remember it's not quite actual stalking, per se.

8/16/2006 2:22 PM  
Blogger Ezzie said...

Yeah, you should! :) Though they can always ask other bloggers who have eaten by my house about the food here... I make it, and it's good. (That's why I'm no longer 6'0 180.)

Blogger Shifra said...

You know, I think I actually coined "sushi with Steg" I wasn't sure so I checked the archives. You can find it's first reference in the comments of this post http://boroparkpyro.blogspot.com/2006/01/but-he-was-still-trogdor_18.html
Sushi with Steg is a lot of fun, I recommend it!

8/16/2006 7:07 PM  
Blogger Ezzie said...

Shifra - I agree, it is. You should try "Sushi with Ezzie", though. ;)

I have never met any blog people in RL. Nor almost met any.

I believe that Balabusta in Blue Jeans and I may have come within several feet of each other at some of the rallies.

I would not be able to recognize her.

Some of y'all really should visit the Bay-Area. Yes.
And if you do, an e-mail address is listed in the 'occupation' field in my profile. Drop me a line.

Okay, who's up for Sushi with Shifra and Ezzie? :-)

Back of the Hill:

Blackherring:

oops! nope...
you're חצילים בטעם כבד ;-)

that's not a meme, that's a bloody term paper! :-P

B"H Wait a minute! I could've sworn that I stalked you. Didn't I? No, wait.... That's someone else. Never mind! ;-)

Whatever!!

You have halachicly correct chosen people dendrites, I'm sure you can handle it!

LOL

PS mine is done and posted and I managed to pull it off without mentioning Jesus or Tyler Durden.

People with LJs don't count??

8/17/2006 6:52 PM  
Blogger Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

Ben-Yehudah:

'Stalking' here means something specific, i.e. maneuvering oneself into a situation in which bumping into the blogger is likely. Although since you did stalk me, in a more typical manner of speaking :-P , i'll modify it.

Mar Gavriel:

No they do not. They are not part of the [Blogspot] Judeoblogosphere.

Hey, I put up one LJ guy...

I'm up for sushi with Ezzie & Shifra! Wait... now I'm confused... :/

8/17/2006 10:34 PM  
Blogger Knitter of shiny things said...

You're such a blogspot elitist! And you have some LJers in your blogroll...And there are other bloggers who have non-blogspot blogs.

Sorry that you were not either at the BT Shabbaton or the R Slifkin Book Launch. BTW, I liked your short list of defining factors for LW MO. Here is one factor that has eminated from the Charedi world and helped anyone who opens a Gemara-accurate texts of basic Rishonim such as Rambam, Ritva and Meiri.

8/18/2006 2:52 PM  
Blogger Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

Steve Brizel:

Thanks! I thought it would produce more discussion, but i guess not.

How is accurate texts of basic Rishonim a defining feature of UO? Seems like the kind of thing people who are into textual criticism would produce... and is Mosad Harav Kook actually Chareidi?

8/18/2006 5:54 PM  
Blogger Knitter of shiny things said...

Steg (and Steve Brizel except you've already seen it)- Beyond BT just posted an article by Gil Student about the divide between MO and UO. Of course, he divides MO into MO and "MO-lite"(TM?). My guess MO-lite= LWMO. Because of course, anyone who lets women participate in rituals in the shul and wear pants must be lax in their practice...

Blogger thanbo said...

"stalked"? I'm sorry you feel that way.

8/21/2006 3:39 PM  
Blogger Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

Knitter:

Not necessarily.
Some indications on the Judeoblogosphere indicate that some RWMO people consider LWMO not MO at all, but the same as RWC[onservative], so it sort of falls off the chart at that point.

Thanbo:

it's not REALLY stalking. After all, i don't actually go around stalking bloggy people myself, so i'm not saying that you or anyone else stalked me. "stalking" is shorthand for 'being in a situation where a run-in with the other person is likely, and making the first move'.

You actually met me too, but I never revealed my blog identity. :-)

Hedyot:

Well then YOU DON'T COUNT, buddy. :-P
Or i could start a new category...

8/22/2006 9:01 AM  
Blogger The Hedyot said...

Of course I count! Shabbat lunch a few months ago at your place. Remember? I brought the salad.

8/22/2006 11:42 AM  
Blogger thanbo said...

I invited you to lunch because
a) you're an interesting blogger
b) you're a frum fan, and we are few and far between
c) I thought it would be good to recruit you for Micha's group
d) if you were going to walk in from Boro Park for the shabbaton, why should you have to walk back in the cold?

If that's stalking, so be it.

there's nothing negative in how i'm using the term. which also means that i'm using it with none of the actual connotations or denotations of the word "stalking", which is, as we can see, not such a good idea...

so anyway, inviting me to lunch because i was planning on going to the shabbaton is definitely 'being in a situation where a run-in with the other person is likely, and making the first move'.

Blogger ALG said...

Glad I'm not the only blogger to have "stalked" you. And I didn't take it negatively, although I'm sure you know that for most women, the term "stalker" has a very negative connotation. Or more than a connotation, possibly even a denotation.
