Excuse me, but do I know you?

We briefly interrupt all the cleaning and shopping to bring you the following message from the head of the Our Shiputzim writing department:

Apparently, bletiquette (that would be “blog etiquette”) dictates that I apologize in advance and explain that posting is probably going to be fairly light over the coming week or so.

However, I like to think of this blog as an escape from real life.

And so, instead of boring you with a long and tedious litany of tasks still left on the Shiputzim family’s pre-Pesach checklist, I’ll take this opportunity to ask you an unrelated question:

Do you know me in real life?

I mean, this blog is semi-anonymous at best, and if you’re acquainted with the Shiputzim family, you should be able to figure out who I am within a post or two.

Thus, a small request: If you know me in real life, please email me at OurShiputzim at gmail dot com.

Think of it as a win-win situation.

I’ll get to satisfy my curiosity about how many of my real life acquaintances read this blog, and you’ll get to feel less like an anonymous stalker…


We now return you back to your regularly scheduled panicking


  1. There are a couple (ok, more than just two) people who reply "I read it on your blog" when I tell them something. They're lurkers and people I've known for ages.

    The downside is, that instead of calling me, they read my blog, and I never get to hear from them unless I call.

  2. Batya - I'm aware that some of my friends and relatives read this blog. But this post was addressed to those who haven't yet told me that they read my blog - for instance, people from our neighborhood who stumbled upon the blog and then figured out that it belongs to me...

  3. don't know if I know you or not.. if you think I do, you can email me (israeli.jew at gmail dot com) or comment here and then I will email you back

  4. I know you!!!
    "I like to think of this blog as an escape from real life.". I like to think of this blog as an escape from cleaning!

  5. Nice try, MAG. Now get back to work...
    P.S. יישר כוח on the microwave!
