Where do superheroes buy their magic spandex costumes?


Jewish date:  18 Kislew 5771 (evening) (Parashath Wayyeshev).

Today’s quasi-holidays:  National Opt-Out Day, Use Even If Seal Is Broken Day, Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day.

I am alive and well, currently in Ra‘ananah, Israel.  I have been here for a week and am living under a name which transliterates as ’Aharon Shelomoh ’Edhelman.  And I have been very busy and very tired.  Making ‘aliyyah (moving to Israel) is a frightfully complicated processes.  Much of what I have done is doing things which need to get done as soon as possible:  getting an identity document, signing up with a health organization, getting a bank account, and telling the Ministry of Absorption so they deposit money in said account for the next few months.  There has also been a lot of looking for and buying various things necessary that were not taken in my suitcases, such as hangers, food, and kitchen utensils.  (Yet I still do not have a hotplate.  Or a cell phone.)  I have also started studying in ’ulpan (Hebrew classes); I tested as fairly advanced and have been bored by the grammar review and find exercises requiring impromptu acting much more interesting.

Given how tired I am, I will proceed straight to today’s tonight's weird thing, courtesy of Barry:  The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company, which bills itself as “Online purveyors of high quality crimefighting merchandise”.  Enjoy, share the weirdness, and, please, someone send me something that lets me fly.
