I finally decided to post a picture of Bryan and I...decked out in our Purim finery. Hebrew tip of the day - Smurf in Hebrew is "dardas", so Bryan is Dardas-abba and I am Dardasit. The picture was taken in the quad at my medical school, where for reasons I have yet to understand there is a small statue of a tree that looks exactly like the Smurf tree. Maybe the Smurfs had mystical healing powers? Posted by Hello

Noa --

Why you looking so blue? :-(

And ain't Bryan a bit tall to be a Smurf? I think he may be an impostor!

Merry Purim!

Fun Joel

Actually, Bryan is only a few inches taller than me. He's standing on a ladder in that pic, but you can't tell because his feet are cut off. rather flattering for Bryan. I, on the other hand, look like I have an enormous bum in that picture, and I DON'T, so I guess that pic is way unflattering for me. Oh well.

The picture's adorable! I thought he was very tall too until I read your comment explaining his height. You make a beautiful if not a bit "blue" couple! Mazal Tov again!

OT - I had my wisdom teeth out just on the other side of that quad.

Cute picture.
I had trouble posting a comment on your previous post - yes you were right to be peeved and maybe a bit of misinformation, or telling your vendors to say "Noa has something exclusive to her" might go a long way. At least the weddings are in different places.

Oh, so now when my mother asks me what he looks like (she has about five times now) I can tell her: blue. With a big white beard.

One thing though -- it is "I finally decided to post a picture of Bryan and me (or myself)" not Bryan and I. Just 'cos you're an Israeli now don't mean I'm gonna let it go.

Well, I just happened to stumble on to this blog by accident - I was looking for a place to get married in Jerusalem.
Anyway, as I myself am a student in this fine institution, concerning the "smurf tree" -
the true story is quite as comical.
The tree is a statue in memory of 4 students from Hadassah med school who were killed in a car accident a few years ago.
Sorry to spoil the otherwise funny picture.

Of course what I meant to say was the true story was "NOT quite as comical".
