Prideful Purgatory

Yankel: So, you know what kind of hell a haughty person gets?
Berel: No, what kind?
Yankel: Well, he gets up there, and he's all prepared for them to give it to him -
Berel: Why? He's a stuck-up good-for-nothing - he thinks that he's perfect!
Yankel: Yeah, yeah. But he also knows what a great potential he had. True, his perfection is mind-blowingly awesome, but he still knows that they'll get him because of the even greater heights he could have reached.
Berel: So what's his hell?
Yankel: They tell him, "Nah, you couldn't have done it..."

If that's all the gehinnom I'll get, I think I can handle it.

If you were REALLY haughty then you wouldn't think this post applied to you... :-)

Never heard of a Self-Aware Baal Gaavah?
(It's what happens when you habitually leave early from mussar seder.)

Lakewood Blog Roundup, Take II

I only included those blogs that seem to still have at least some little bit of life in them. Please feel free to add your Lakewood blog in the comments.

http://chainikhocker.blogspot.com/
http://slaviestudio.blogspot.com/
http://yudelstake.blogspot.com/
http://espastnisht.blogspot.com/
http://www.davidonthelake.blogspot.com/
http://megapixelnj.blogspot.com/
http://hayom.blogspot.com/
http://www.lakewoodhockers.blogspot.com/
http://bdl.freehostia.com/
http://ishimshitos.blogspot.com/

Internet historians may find it interesting that five of these blogs were in the original (very popular) Lakewood Blog Roundup post, back in December, 2006.

Of course, standard disclaimers apply to all links aside from the one to eSefer.
