hokie carla

back from a walk - 68F outside! but 86% humidity, so still sweaty
9:37 am
hurshy

but it isn't really used in that short form to refer to the actual cabbage, but as an insult for a german person
9:38 am
hokie carla

but isn't the insult capitalized?
9:38 am
hurshy

idk...
9:39 am
hokie carla

and I thought it was for Nazis, not all Germans
9:39 am
MollyL

Hot dog vendors use kr5 for the cabbage product all the time
9:39 am
hokie carla

speaking of nazi, somehow that is on enable even though it should be a proper noun
9:39 am
hurshy

i don't think it's nazis bc i think it was used in the first war also
9:41 am
MollyL

And the cabbage reference is part of the definition here
9:41 am
hurshy

the cabbage product though, is definitely the most disgusting thing i have ever tasted. it's not the cabbage, it's what they DO to it
9:41 am
hokie carla

if you click on the def, the dog condiment is #1, and the slang is #2, plus it says it's capitalized

in general I don't like cabbage, though I've been getting those chopped salad bags that have cabbage in them.

yeah i haven't tasted kimchi, the smell was enough to warn me off. i only ate the kr5 because i was trying to be polite as a guest at someone's home. but i couldn't stomach more than a couple of bites.

aww, that's sweet, thank you. we do like it a lot. we repainted the whole inside and have done some other things.
3:55 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I would love to downsize possessions but my husband is a junk freak- meaning stuff follows him home. Our household has changed as we have a family of Afghan refugees in our third floor apartment. They have a seven year old and a brand new week old baby. Certainly changes the tenor of life. Many cups of tea. In addition to my own grandchild who lives out of state, I am "grandmother" to two Afghan children, and mother figure to their mother. A lot of community support--it takes a village. I prefer it to a retirement community.
3:56 pm
hokie carla

wow. I have definitely downsized possessions but still have a LOT of stuff for my sewing hobby. this house is the perfect size for us but it does need more storage space. if only there was a basement.
4:01 pm
Kaplan the Magne

We have a very active boy from Afghanistan who will be bored to tears for 2 weeks till his English immersion school begins. Not bored, but definitely interested in hanging out in our house. We have a neighborhood that is full of resources. The baby is American born! She will never have to wear a burka!
4:03 pm
Kaplan the Magne

This is all a big change in our lives.
4:03 pm
hokie carla

maybe he'll be enthralled with the baby
4:03 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Oh he is. And with the Spiderman mask and gloves I got him. The neighbors love him.
4:06 pm
hokie carla

how is their english? you all communicate okay?
4:07 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I went in one year from being a grandmother of none, then my daughter had a daughter, and the Afghans came to us for refuge. Next door we have an Australian Ph.D. in arts education, across the street is a bilingual educator, along with our longtime neighbors. We also have a family that lives in Kenya but own a house here that he bought decades ago.
4:08 pm
hokie carla

that's the way it is in NY, a melting pot. at least that's what tv and movies tells me.
4:12 pm
Kaplan the Magne

The dad is functional in English. The mom who is much younger comes from the provinces and was illiterate in her own language. Now is being tutored. The boy is communicating with a combination of English and skilled pantomime. He will be speaking soon. We volunteered for this, and am glad we did it, but it is definitely a change having children around the house again. My youngest is a freelance writer and lives in LA, except she is in Italy now, and who knows what's next. Our oldest is working mostly from home. The granddaughter knows us on FaceTime, and we are spending a few days in the Berkshires with them in August. And Rosh Hashanah.
4:13 pm
Kaplan the Magne

My city was never really a melting pot- it started mostly Irish and Italian working class in triple deckers, but when the subways extended, more people moved in. Now we have yuppies, Haitians, Asians, Brazilians- the gamut.
4:15 pm
Kaplan the Magne

There were always some jewish community for over a 120 years, but a minority.
4:16 pm
hokie carla

my job out of college was at a company that had moved from NYC the year or two before. my dept. was a super melting pot.
4:19 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I grew up in Flushing Queens. It was rather redlined, as Trump Sr. and another guy were responsible for all the postwar development. By postwar, I of course refer only to WWII. But Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn of course are home to many ethnicities. But there are separate neighborhoods. You can go two blocks in any direction and be in a totally different world.
4:21 pm
hokie carla

yeah, I think people who grew up somewhere in NYC don't get how foreign the boroughs and the neighborhoods are to the rest of us.
4:24 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Upper Bronx and Lower Bronx. Lower East Side. Latinx now, a century ago, immigrants from Europe. Hipsters now, poverty then. Everything changes constantly. As Nora Ephron said, once you leave New York it doesn't let you back in easily. Your favorite dry cleaners is now a restaurant, and so on. Staten Island is still a thing unto itself.
4:25 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I was working in a bridal shop in Flushing Queens, when my boyfriend kicked me out in one of those crushing scenes. What was I to do, where was I to go, I was out on my fanny...

Then over the bridge from Flushing to the Sheffield's door. I was there to sell makeup but the father saw more. I had style, I had flair , that's how I became

Now who would have guessed that the girl we described would be exactly what the doctor prescribed?

Ah yes, except you missed the wonderful line of, "I had flair, I was there!, that's how...." It was so tongue in cheek.

Now the father finds her beguiling (watch out CC) and the kids are actually smiling (such joie de vie)

I am watching it repetitively. My daughter has been working a bit with Fran's stylist who is a piece of work in herself.

Kaplan the Magne

No really, I know the whole series by heart.
4:30 pm
Kaplan the Magne

That's the whole point. I know those people.
4:32 pm

Not liking her laugh is like saying soap operas are stupid. Everyone knows it. Fran Drescher is a gifted physical comedian who grew up watching I Love Lucy, my other favorite show. I love Netta.

The thing is, in the 90s Flushing was already Chinatown, and that whole Sylvia culture was gone. To LA or Boca.

If you'd ever been to a Bar Mitzvah in Queens in the 60s though, I'm sure there were zaftig ladies putting rolls into their purses.

In school in Canada, I was taught that the U.S. is a melting pot, and Canada is a mosaic. It sounds like New York is a bit of a mosaic.

Hey! Kaplan! I grew up in Flusing, Queens too! It's been a VERY long time since I lived there, though.
4:47 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Yeah, we were taught the melting pot narrative in grade school back in olden times, but I think mosaic is more accurate. Please go back and tell the rest of the Canadians.

Flushing was mostly Jewish when I was a kid but I had a few Asian-American friends. Now it's almost all Asian-American and the restaurants are MUCH better.

My block was Jewish and Italian. There was one Protestant. I did not know what that was. You were Jewish or Catholic.
