No need, I'll give you the synopsis- Cordnoy faces all the bad guys, wittily beating them with his sharp lines and lomdus, and gets all the girls that he turns away because he's on GYE, and lives happily ever after with his Rebbetzin as he gives shiurim in Shmiras Haloshon to men and she does to women. Then, he starts a Yeshiva for weak boys who become future poskim.

I haven't read it in a while but I think that's an accurate synopsis.

Cords, am I right?

You turned them away???

If I read cord's thread from the beginning I fear I'd be sucked into some netherworld..

And here I thought that was your excuse.

You got some readin' to do; it might help with some of your posts. It doesn't need to be my thread; it can be chullent's, pidaini's or liz's as well.

I always cringe when I read my thread from the beginning.
What works for me: 1) Honesty 2) Meetings 3) 12-step 4) Listening to my Sponsor 5) Not doing what I want to do 6) Inviting the God of my understanding into my life

Happy and kosher Pesach to all my friends here. May Hashem grant us (yes including myself)  true freedom from our chametz -ego which prevents us from being honest with others and  (of course) honest with our selves.

And remember. If the Pesach food starts to get to you
