i've been tagged!!

okay so i've been tagged by The Babysitter and it would be really mean not to respond plus i also think it's kinda cool and interesting... you guys get to learn some RANDOM stuff so why not? (check out The Babysitter's explanation of the meme)

book meme:
They veered off toward the philosophical and debated the 
necessary properties of bashert. They knew that they were 
all looking for their destined match. But were they required 
to believe that there was only one person out there for each 
of them?  The romantic and the fervent among them insisted 
that they were. God matched boys to girls before they were 
born. The more practical girls challenged this notion. What 
about people who died before they got married? Did that mean 
they never had a bashert, because of course God knew that they 
would die young? Or did it mean that somewhere out there, the 
second half of this couple was hopefully searching for a bashert 
who was dead? 
this excerpt is from p. 56 of The Outside World by Tova Mirvis. 
I really liked the book and I have read it more than once. It's 
funny actually that these few lines have to do with something 
i've previously written about- like bashert and height, etc. a total 
"accident" (nothing is really an accident; everything is planned 
by Him). Hope you found it interesting!

next meme coming soon!

wow, very interesting excerpt, makes me want to read more of it. Maybe I'll add that to the list of books to check out.

I remember your post about the bashert and height.

How do you dream?

Which do you prefer?

What would you rather?

What's your favorite method of keeping in touch with friends?

Are you going to watch the Super Bowl today- and why?
