"In fairness, the Jews ARE terrible."


"Hey Facebook friends, it's been fun watching you guys argue about whether the Jews should be able to exist in public all week. Can y'all go back to posting pictures of cats now?"


"To play devil's advocate, the Jews ARE terrible."


"AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH"


Edit: I worry my sarcasm is unclear. This is not a dialogue- all four of these messages are posts I considered making and resisted.

I am sorry you are dealing with that :-(.

By the way, it's looking like I'm going to be touring the Helsinki synagogue on the Thursday of WorldCon. I don't know if you want to skip out on con stuff for that, or if you'd rather go earlier in the week (before I show up in Helsinki), but I figured I'd mention in case you wanted to make a group outing of it.

Ah, yeah. I've seen some discussion of that, none of which seems to created any really useful dialogue, unfortunately.

Tours are at 10 and 2; I was aiming for 10, on the theory that would be less disruptive of WorldConning than trying to go over in the middle of the day. The synagogue requests you submit a copy of your passport to them in advance--more information here: http://www.jchelsinki.fi/en/visit. I have not actually e-mailed them yet, since I'm still waiting for the friend I'm traveling with to get me a copy of her passport, heh.

I also got the message that they were closed until 7/31. I wasn't going to worry too much if I hadn't heard back from them until Wednesday or so; I imagine they have a lot of accumulated email to process

And I just heard back from them, and so did the two other people I invited along. So it looks like there will be at least five of us for 10 a.m. on Thursday (please feel free to invite others if you think of them!). The other couple are staying at the Sokos Hotel Torni, which is a couple blocks from the synagogue (I think? someone tell me if my understanding of Helsinki geography is wrong, heh), so I figured we'd meet in the hotel lobby around 9:30ish and head over from there? Does that work for you?

My e-mail is ambyrglow@gmail.com, by the way, if you want to take this off DW.

In fairness, (certain) people on your facebook feed are (possessed of) terrible (opinions).

*Hugs*. Here's to pictures of cats.

Ugh. HOW IS THAT A DEBATE.

(I mean. What do I know? Queer but not Jewish and I haven't followed this thing closely. But it certainly seems like really clear-cut anti-Semitism from Chicago Pride.)

Er, did I say something wrong? Sorry. The ugh wasn't aimed at your queer Jewish FB friends if that wasn't clear?

Haha, no, don't worry :D I actually automatically assumed you were kidding, and then was like "wait, generalisations inform me that Americans don't do dry wit! Argh!" But that's almost certainly cos I've spent the weekend with my family and it makes me neurotic!
