hey jjblue dont bother us with facts.
but seriously folks, i think i might be seeing purimholics on this thread. its a most terrible condition. some symptoms include having unexplained urges to dress like a flowerpot, dance on tables, and consume woodford by the vat. also not uncommon, to cry uncontrollably about how wonderful of a person whoevers shoulder youve buried your head in. but compulsive purim posting in the beginning of shvat is a dead giveaway.

Ok I'll admit it, I really like Purim. But I only got into Purim while thinking about "honesty".

In other news:

I got a new phone in the mail yesterday(play the scary organ music)

and it was able to connect to the wifi without connecting it to the cell network (play more scary organ music)

and it did not have Covenant Eyes installed (play more scary organ music, extra scary)

I immediately factory reset the phone to prevent myself from using it (It's a work phone so I wasn't able to hook up the phone myself after it was factory reset)

Then today a co-worker said, "hey I can get the phone running even before you connect it" and he did. (OH NO)

I was feeling weak but... BH I made it to the store to get it connected downloaded CE without any falls (or even slips)

I have no doubt in my mind that the chizuk that I get from participating in this forum helped me get through the nissayon.

L'maaseh, yes. The Chozek has actually been quite helpful as well

I just overheard a co-worker discussing Purim with his wife

his wife is probably a shaloch manos addict. ive known some women who start fantasizing about it from isru chag succos. the saddest part of all of it is how the family of an addict is affected. all the girls have to be pineapples, and all the boys wine bottles. then they have to march around the neighborhood tied at the neck by ribbon and wrapped in cellophane till the shoulders. this husband needs your help, intervention at early stages saves lives. approach him and offer help. tell him about the wonderful spouses anonymous programs that can be found on the website.
much hatzlacha!

Sounds like a bad case of PPSD (Post Purim Stress Disorder)

All you need is to realize that we are more PRE-Purim then POST-Purim to lift you up as Gevura
