Oh, now I get it...

So every couple years, the apartment next to me gets rented out to Israeli students and/or tourists. I'm not the most culturally literate, but I'm just smart enough to pick out certain phonetics when they're jabbering on their cell phones. That back of the throat thing. Maybe I'm fooling myself.

Anyhow, tonight I thought this year's batch was going wacky when they picked up a bunch of votive candles in bulk and had all their lights out. Someone made a joke about whether they'd started chanting yet....

Well, it's several hours later, and I think I picked out the root cause. I don't know the circumstances, but they seem to have no electricity. My guess is someone didn't pay the tab.

Ah, the chanting idea would have been better for their sake.
No electricity = suck.
And chanting is nice sometimes. Soothing even.

Well, it is the Jewish new year, but around here it isn't celebrated with candles. I'm going to go with the electricity thing.
