Our World is too Freaking Small.

The other day, I ranted a bit about the JIB awards. I'm far from the only blogger who has ranted about them, and some even said I sounded "bitter."

What's interesting is that Trep and Jewlicious even commented on my posting about it. Someone else commented to me that - "Hey, all the big blogs read you!", which, when I thought I about it, was rather flattering.

Granted, LGF and Fundamentally Freund from Arutz Sheva haven't commented or acknowledged my existence, I doubt they read me blog or have ever heard of me.

However, I didn't anticipate my son's phone call from school:

Son: Abba, remember you said something about that Freund blogger, that you weren't even going to bother competing with him for that [JIB] award?

Jameel (rather surprised): When did I say that?

Son: Well, you posted in on your blog the other day.

Jameel: Er, right...I guess.

Son: Well, I thought you wanted to know that I know his son.

Jameel: Who's son?

Son: Freund's son. He's in my class in yeshiva. I went over to him and asked him today if his father is the Freund blogger on Arutz Sheva.

Jameel: WHAT?! How did you figure that out?

Son: Don't worry, I didn't tell him about your blog. Gotta get back to class. bye.

Our world is shrinking smaller daily.




Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

...and now your cover is blown, at least for Freund and his son :-P

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Steg: I still doubt he reads this blog...so I've got nothing to worry about ;-)

Gavriel said...

So you are going to send your son back with instructions to tell him about your blog, right?

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Gavriel: Haven't really thought about it, though I don't really have a problem with him knowing about me.

It could have been a meaningless question to Freund's son, and he may not even report back to dad...

I guess it depends how my son relayed the question to him.

Wow - almost "outed" by your own son!

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

WBM: My son knows enough not to out me ;-)

Then again, Freund wouldn't out me publically anyway. And if he does know who I am...its not the end of the world.

Sounds like it is time to set up a dummy blog, something like:

Jameel's Pleasure Palace

Just think of the possibilities.

Yesterday in the school hall where I work, saw the fundraiser with someone I guessed was a donor. The fundraiser started introducing us, and the donor said: "she writes"

Tovya @ Zion Report said...

I agree with Gavriel, tell your son to tell Freund's son... I think it would be pretty amuzing really.

And all I could think of was uh... get a burlap sack and invite the boy over for a playdate... Yeah. Show that Freud dude you're serious. Naw'ah mean? Naw' ahm sayin?

Don't hold your breath, I don't think Mr. Freund quite understands the concept of Blogging. He never replies to his commenters (and we've left him some good stuff) and I've also never seen him comment on anyone else either- Batya can you correct me here?

I think someone must have told the dear folks at A7 to be like all the other cool kids and "do" a blog...With an automatic readership of thousands :-S

With all apologies, I am sorry it has taken me so long to get to your blog. I have been through your last 5 or 6 postings and I ma quickly hooked. I shall add you to my list of try to reads every day.
