Blogger "Pyramid"

In my recent post entitled "Blogger Jeopardy", commenter Staying Afloat suggested that I begin a new game for the enjoyment of my husband, who doesn't read my blog posts - only the comments.
The way "$25,000 Pyramid" works is that you get a category and your partner (my husband) has to guess the category based on the answers offered that fit the category.
So, we'll start off easy and if this works out, I might make it a regular feature.
Today's category:
THINGS ASSOCIATED WITH A REAL YEKKE

Ready?
Set?
Go forth and comment!

(P.S. Make sure not to mention the category in your responses or it will ruin the game...)

I second the sense of humor.
Honesty,
Sterling character,
and of course, INTEGRITY.

Firm and uncompromising adherence to Torah and Minhagim.

a nice and proper Weltanschauung and being the only one's that have a clue what that means.

being obsessed with being yekkish :-) (sorry, but I just had to...it is the one thing I know of that y'all share)

also, KNOWING why you do EVERY SINGLE THING THAT YOU DO, and also the historical precedents for it, and having BOOKS that document it, and also your grandparents probably also knew how to read...

btw, good Shabbos from sunny (NOT!) Berlin where Shabbos comes in at 3:22 in the afternoon, like nervous bride, and sits down and waits for the guests to arrive...we try to be ready for her here, but it's not easy...she's gonna have to have a long kabbalas panim today...
