5775

5775 is a palindrome just like my middle school guidance counselor's name, Ms. Otto (O-t-t-o backwards and forwards; toot inside out). But so what. Any guesses what 5775 stands for? Maybe it's the number of hairs lying on our
floors from our two shedding dogs. They shed an awful lot, and I'm too tired after work to vacuum. I need to pick the hairs off the floor and take them to the attic. That way I can scare away the pesky squirrels who have moved in without paying rent. But that's not why I called this post 5775.


5775 could be the number of pixels coming from the horror movie on my TV set. It's called The Watcher and stars James Spader, Keanu Reaves, and Marisa Tomei. Great cast! It's fourteen years old and only has one star, but I started watching it because a long time ago, I read a book by Dean Koontz and thought this could be it. It isn't. Anyway, since I have no idea how many pixels it takes to show a movie any more than how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, that's not the reason I called this post 5775.

However, I ate an amazing brisket dinner last night and another yummy meal, today. I'm probably doomed after consuming 5775 calories complete with apples dipped in honey. So I guess that's why this post is called 5775. If you don't believe me, just google 5775 and see what you get. Then, make it a great one!

Does that mean you're that much older that the rest of us?

5775 calories is better than 6776

I hope it was a good meal to have so many calories. ;)

Does Race Car count as a palindrome, since it's really two words? :)

We have unmannerly squirrels in our attic too, and they store nuts in my car every single year. The car mechanic expects me. Nothing I can do but tear down the big acorn trees out front, I guess. I've tried everything I can think of... silly squirrels.

Have a good weekend!

L'Shana Tov!

Now I want to watch The Watcher.

We get animals that mess with our chimney. Sometimes they get stuck up there, and scare the crap out of my kids. It is a random noise. If a bird gets caught there's lots of fluttering noises.

I hope that meal was good!

I hope you have a wonderful day! Your post is intriguing!

L'shana tova, Shelly! I'm glad you speak my language. I guess no one else is curious enough to google the number 5775. :)

Binky said...

I Googled it! That's why I wonder if it makes your that much older, or just wiser.

L'Shana Tova Joyce. I know what it is, although I did laugh at your teacher's name inside out.

Isn't that the year number on the Hebrew calendar? Is it time to say "Happy New Year"? If so, then a Blessed and Happy New Year to you! While i know it's the time of the new year around now, i'm not so sure of the customs you keep for it.

Joyce Lansky said...

Bingo! Thanks for the New Year's Greetings. I hope 5775 proves to be a great year for all.

Martha J. M. Orlando said...

Ah! The Hebrew calendar! (Thanks to the smarts of messymimi.) But, I love the humor you created here, Joyce. Blessings and Happy New Year!

5775 is roughly the number of times I will watch any movie with Keanu Reeves! but this was especially good because I also like Spader.
