Unusual applications

Here are some unusual application of my work. Please let me know of others!

Jewish calendar

A request: please avoid scheduling events on Shabbat, Rosh Hasanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Chanukkah, Purim, and Passover. Holiday dates for the next five years. I am a member of Sukkat Shalom, the Edinburgh Liberal Jewish Community, Jews for Justice for Palestinians, and Scottish Jews for a Just Peace.

Personal

I am the father of Adam and Leora.
Leora and Adam at one month Leora and Adam at five years Leora and Adam at eight years


You e-mailed asking for my opinion, and I wanted to give a really thorough, well-thought-out, articulate response, so I starred your e-mail, and over time it became a mascot for my illogical but oppressive sense of dread in the face of slightly annoying tasks. That little yellow star became a shining testament to the burden of modernity! Every day, it dared me to write a response worthy of the time I've made you wait, and every day I thought, Ugh, no. But today! Today I will respond! Rejoice, my patient friend! (I'm actually really busy, though, so this is going to be a vague, half-assed response that I could have easily written in the minute after I first read your e-mail, five months ago.) Sorry! — Susanna Wolf, Sorry for the Delayed Response, The New Yorker, 16 March 2017
