Me on the left at New Years 2004...  Not much different, my hair is more or less blond now, and a bit longer...
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Hopefully basketball proves better than our football this season.

There are only three pictures that I know of that exist of me on the web, and here is probably the clearest:

I'm the one receiving antidoron from the priest with the bright gold phelonion:


Also, there's this one; I'm way in the back in front of the door in the wall. But the old lady receiving the award is Anastasia Somethingorother, who was a secretary for St. John Maximovich for several years.

Well, some of us like dance in a rolic-ing fashion.   ;)  I was known to do some sweep-the-floor polkas when I was younger as well as some medieval dances that are decidedly not melancholy.  And the home-brewed mead could be pretty good, too.

I have it on the authority of a native Marylander (or "Mer'laner" as they pronouce it here) that it is "Bawl'mer" and "Bawlimoron".  

I fear that as an immigrant to the Land of Crabs and Orioles that I shall never learn to speak "Bawlmorese" but somehow my youngest is.  He says "woo-der" for "water".  I don't know where he gets it...unless it's in the woo-der. ;D

Ebor,

Any chance we can get a video clip of one of those sweep the floor polkas on the board?  :D  If not, I think we'd settle for a recipe for the home brewed mead.  ;D

I know exactly who both of you are!  We're from the same Church, at least I've seen you and your wife there plenty of times.  She sings (or sang) in the choir at Holy Resurrection, I think (I can't remember if you did, though).  Anyway, we had to move for the Army, but maybe we'll run into you around Christmas.

Gregory:

Now that I see your picture I am pretty sure you were still at the church standing outside near the bell tower when I got there for Vespers.  I probably walked right past you in my haste to get inside to ask someone if they knew you!

I just got there for Vespers (which we have in the Chapel) and saw that the Bridal party was still inside the main church taking pictures.  Went inside and asked people if they knew anyone by the name of Gregory who came in from the state of Washington to the wedding.  No one did.

Well, maybe next time.  Glad you liked our church.

Isn't taking pictures inside the store a security no-no?  ;D

On a side note, those cigarette prices are killer! Kinda like buying them in Cook County. Paying that much for a pack of smokes would be reason enough to motivate me to quit if I was a smoker (that and of course all the negative effects it has on your health).

They take pictures all the time and put them up as some sort moral booster.... it's wierd.

With tax GPCs are 4.15, Marlboros are 4.75, and Camels 5.50.... definetly not a cheap habit.  It can actually be kind of depressing working up at the booth there... selling mainly lotto tickets, tobacco etc, but lately I have been working mostly on a regular register, so a little bit of everything.
