My Family Is The Best

I'm going to have to miss Passover this year, because there is an all-day gamelan rehearsal on the weekend that the East Coast Pony Family seder is being held. (Yes, I've bitched to the gamelan director about this.) The Pony Family is not happy, but they understand why I can't come home.

However, as I've said before, you just cannot keep the Ponies down when something is this important. It's the twenty-first century, we have technology, and by god, we are going to use it!

Therefore, here is the plan for Pony Passover this year: I will go to the gamelan rehearsal in Chicago, and then come straight home, fix me a plate of brisket and wait by the phone. When the East Coast seder is drawing to its singing climax, a speakerphone will be brought into the dining room, and they will give me a call. I will get to participate remotely in the singing by speakerphone.

Have I mentioned how awesome the Pony Family is recently?

Does someone on the MA end of things have a laptop and a Skype account? You could do it with video and without the long-distance charge, too boot. Might let you stay on longer and celebrate more of the Seder with the whole herd of ponies.

Total lamesauce of the director, though. Someone should schedule something that he can't miss on Easter, see how he likes it. And aren't there laws that prevent this kind of BS?

That's a good idea with the Skype. I'll check it out next time I call home.

And aren't there laws that prevent this kind of BS?

Not really -- the gamelan isn't a workplace or anything that could be covered by that kind of law. But it is total lamesauce, the more so since the gamelan director's wife is Jewish, and he really ought to know better. At the very least, I will require Passover food on the snack table during the day.

I was wondering about the Skype option too:)

Well, I'll have to check to see if anyone at the seder has Skype. But that could be a good option.
