Title: What does everyone look like?
Post by: Marat on October 28, 2006, 02:02:40 PM
I've seen on other forums they occasionally have picture threads where everyone can see what the posters look like. Some I know want to be anonymous for whatever reasons and that is fine. If anyone is willing to share a pic, post it. I'll go first. I took this recently showing of my new bible I got from amazon.

Come on everyone. I'd like to see what you look in in reality. I have certain pics in my mind now and wanna see if I got it right.

Well, we had a thread for this but it seems a few server upgrades has(have?) removed most of the images.

Thanks

Here you go. The pic on there doesn't do it justice. It is the most beautiful Bible I've ever seen.

Me and one of my cats, Sketch, who thinks that he's a parrot and that I'm Long John Silver.
Actually, Sketch is a very pious cat. See the Icon of St. Paraskevi in the background? Sketch wont eat his dinner unless her lamp is lit first. I think he developed this habit because I would always light the lamp on coming home before feeding them when they were kittens.
Sketch's brother, Charcoal, on the other hand is heterodox I think- he'll eat no matter what. Or perhaps he's just a glutton.

Thanks for posting Ozgeorge. It is too funny about your cat and lighting a candle. I love cats too. In fact, Marat is the name of my cat. I named myself after him on this site. He lets me hold him like a baby, like in this picture.

Too cute!
One of the reasons my Godchildren love to come to the Monastery where I worship is because of it's 23 cats, 6 donkeys, 4 goats, and 8 hens and 1 rooster (named appropriately "Peter"!). My Godchildren have each seemed to have befriended a particular cat. The Abbot lets my Godchildren help feed the donkeys after liturgy. Then we go into the refectory for "trapeza" (a shared meal). When we come out, my three Godchildren will each be met by "their" cat, and usually, the kids have smuggled some scraps out of the refectory to feed them.

Ah yes, I had an old cat who was very pious, but he had to move on to staretskats heaven.  My dog otoh, he's definitly a faithful Jew.  It's never a pretty picture when Christmas comes around.  Speaking about pictures that aren't pretty, I guess I can go ahead and post mine.

Well, I'm sure there are more ways than one to do it, but this is how I did it. I signed up for an account with photobucket so I can upload pics there and get a web address for them. After you do that and upload a pic there, copy and paste the bottom line beneath the pic where it starts with [img]. If you copy and paste it, just paste it on the message section like you would for a normal post and the formatting will be done for you automatically. If not, and you just have a web address, then click the button above the message window directly under the one for italics and it will give you the format. Just insert the photo web address in the middle.

I hope some of this makes sense. If not, message me and if you send a pic I'll do it and send you back the link to put in to post a picture.

That's Madingley Hall, an Elizabethan manor house near Cambridge, England. I was a student at Cambridge University in the summer of 2004. The university owns the place, and I and the rest of my group were at a farewell dinner there. Good memories. . .

You look like a magician in this picture, especially with the cat.

Or just hit the picture button up above the text window when you post (it is below the Italics button)

I thought you kinda looked like Ray Romano (from Everybody Loves Raymond). 

I hope that by participation in this thread I am not required to post a photo of myself ... 'cause that just isn't going to happen.
You know, I really DO get compared to Ray quite a lot.  :)  I noticed though (and this isn't directed at you Carole) that some of the folks here running their mouths are also the ones not brave enough to post their picture.  Go figure. ::)

Sure thing OrthoDoc,

In Chinese it reads, "Nicholas, Former Deacon" at most Orthodox forums I post as "尼古拉前执事", but OCnet is not able to allow Chinese characters for user names, so I used the PinYin (latinized) version of the name here.

Thank you again Mina. This picture was not even planned. As we were walking through the part we came upon a bicycle and on a whim, the photographer had us take a few shots there.  As we finished, the bicycle owner came over a hill and heartily approved of us using his bicycle for taking the photos. It, along with the photo I use for my avatar here at OCnet (and most other places) are my favorites of the photos that we took that day.

The first one was taken a few years ago at Baltimore's famous Sidebar Tavern, which has become a mecca of sorts for touring punk rock bands to play in.  Folks have come to think of it as Baltimore's CBGBs, which is weird to those of us who used to play there all the time when it first started having gigs.

The second one is me at age 6 or so.

I can't stand ATL and NYC is nice but way too expensive.  Visited Ga. Tech. in 1995 and didn't like the place; I felt like I was more of a mark down there than in the worse neighborhoods of my own native city.   ???

Hah, well, Norwich switched over from BDUs to ACUs last year (Army sends everything over for free), so they decided to use it to identify which company the person was in. Usually it's a letter, but I'm in Cavalry, so it's a pair of sabres. IMO, we shouldnt be wearing the flag or combat patch, but oh well.

I can assure you that Atlanta today looks NOTHING like Atlanta in 1995. (Presbytera Mari can back me up on this.) The construction boom experienced before/during/after the Olympics has completely transformed the city. It's really pretty now.

How does one put a picture up here?

By using the image tags
Code: [Select]
[img] [/img]either side of the url of your picture.
For example, if your picture is located at "http://www.website.com/mypicture.gif" you would type:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://www.website.com/mypicture.gif[/img]
Title: Re: What does everyone look like?
Post by: Marc Hanna on April 14, 2009, 09:17:16 AM
use the insert image button on the reply screen - just to the left of the little planet earth and directly below the italics button.

Then paste the image address between the brackets where the cursor defaults to.  You need to have a picture on the web somewhere - eg facebook.

I not sure if you can upload from your computer or not.

Indeed, it IS "just the priest, the one(s) being baptized and the one or two godparents (of each)."  When you have six people baptized in one service the dance of Isaiah can get pretty crowded, in a good way. :)

No it's not serbian..the priest is wearing Russian or Ukrainian type high collar vestment ...Serbian priests wear Greek style ones..unless there a Russian priest that's part of the Serbian church ???

Or it could be a Serbian priest who just happens to be wearing Reinstall vestments.

Who Knows could be that as well... .Let's chalk it up to one of those mysteries were so fond of...

Which ones are you and your wife in the video, Seraphim?

My wife has a light-blue head scarf on, and I'm in all black. 


And we don't hold on to each other like this. Is this a Serbian tradition?

Not sure, I guess I never really thought about it...


The whole church does that? I've never seen that before. At all the baptism I've ever attended, it's just the priest, the one being baptised and the one or two godparents (as far as I can remember, anyhow).

Indeed, it IS "just the priest, the one(s) being baptized and the one or two godparents (of each)."  When you have six people baptized in one service the dance of Isaiah can get pretty crowded, in a good way. :)



Okay, I went back and watched the video again. Now I understand why there are so many people in the procession!

Just found a couple of wonderful threads where we can see how we all look.   A nice looking bunch of Forum people!

1.  What does everyone look like?

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,10042.0.html

and another one

2.  Post your picture!

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,4533.0.html


And I found on one of the threads that Fr Anastasios has created a Facebook Group for the Forum.   More member photos there.  Not very active... we should post our own Facebook links..

When you post a reply with the "reply" button there is a little plus sign and "Additional options" click on that and you can add an attachment. Or you can use something like photobucket. In which case you upload a photo to photobucket and then use the "img" code to put up a photo.

My husband was home for about 2 weeks, he left a week ago and is back in Afghanistan. Our newest daughter is 4 weeks on Tuesday. Ollie lost the spiders up until recently, but happily (eh...for HIM not the rest of us) they were found today. So the spider chasing has begun anew.

Ah... glory to Jesus Christ. I'll bet it is "beautiful to watch". I know it was "beautiful to read"!  :) It put me in mind of my three (all grown now with kids of their own). The oldest (my daughter Lisa) was fiercely defensive of her young brother and he, in turn, worshiped the ground she walked on. Knowing that your kids love one another so much must be a great comfort to both you and your husband. All the best.

I'm glad you like the name, you are one of the few! :) My grandmother thought it was a horrible name, and that she'd never learn how to spell it, lol.  Not many like the tattoo either, but that's ok. Regarding the pic of me, I look grumpy there, don't I? I almost always look grumpy and standoffish. Here's one of Mary and I where I'm at least half smiling...

It's an interesting story about that icon... It had been in our home (the home I grew up in) for as long as I can remember. I don't know where my parents got it, or even the origin of it. My parents are not even Christians (more agnostic). But that icon was displayed in our living room next to the Holy Bible for as long as I can remember. Even when I accepted Christ at age 19, as a Protestant I never paid attention to that icon. I just assumed it was some Catholic thing. But a few months after I was baptized into the EOTC, my mother came to visit me and gave me that lovely icon as a gift. I was deeply moved by her gesture, because I had intended to ask her if she might leave me that icon in her will. It really is beautiful, but I don't know the origin of it.

I grew up in a very chaotic and troubled household. But I really think the presence of that Icon helped to ward off a lot of evil.

The white garment around my shoulders is called a "Natela," which is what we Ethiopian Christians wear when we go to Church. I am wearing an Ethiopian scarf around my head, but men do not cover our heads when at Church. Outside of Church I usually like to keep my head covered. Not because of baldness or religious belief, but I just feel more comfortable with a hat or scarf on my head.

You know...I think men look better with beards, and you DO look a lot like the man in the upper right photo! :)
Yes, men do look better with beards, more so than women :)

True, but still-- we women need our "beards" in order to sneak into Mt. Athos!  ;) Just kidding!

Can anyone tell me how to post my photo here? My wife was able to send a picture of me to my email, and then I saved it to my Microsoft Word documents. What do I need to do now?

I'm so ignorant about these things. :-[
Thanks.

If you have photo's already posted on facebook, myspace, Orthodoxcircle, blog.......etc. Then all you have to do is Put a link in between this:

Not beard related, exactly, but speaking of women passing as men... ;) The saint that my daughter was named after, Athanasia, tricked people into believing that she was a male monk. Athanasia had seperated from her husband so that they could both pursue monasticism. At one point Athanasia met her former husband, and she had changed so much that the guy didn't even recognize his own former wife. He lived with her for 12 years after that without realising who she was. So says the hagiography in the book The Lives of the Spiritual Mothers, anyway.

I don't seem to be able to get the image thing to work.

When I tried directly accessing the link that you used, I didn't get anything either. Did you grab the link from your address bar in the browser, or right-click on the image and get the link that way (e.g. by copying it from "properties")? I usually use the latter method.

EDIT--Nevermind, I see that it's working now :)

Me and one of my cats, Sketch, who thinks that he's a parrot and that I'm Long John Silver.
Actually, Sketch is a very pious cat. See the Icon of St. Paraskevi in the background? Sketch wont eat his dinner unless her lamp is lit first. I think he developed this habit because I would always light the lamp on coming home before feeding them when they were kittens.
Sketch's brother, Charcoal, on the other hand is heterodox I think- he'll eat no matter what. Or perhaps he's just a glutton.

Sorry, I couldnt resist [including George's post since] ... this is that was indeed a most humerous post!

Pardon me, while I open up my urban dictionary. Don't be a hater.  :-\

I am not a hater, I am just a desperate small-town Deep South USA state-run university teacher where my students (like 99% of them) do not distinguish "accept" from "except," "John's" from "Johns's," "I do" from "I does," "he does" from "he do," etc. I know, as long as the US spends more than all the other countries of the world combined on its military budget, it does not really matter... but it still causes me pain.  

Demetrios, Heorhij's view has nothing to do with hate, and everything to do with proper, clear expression. Sometimes it takes those who have learned English as a second or even third language to point out the modern problems in spoken and written language of so-called native speakers of English.

Heorhij, I feel the same way as you do on the sloppiness of English expression, spelling, grammar and usage of the past generation. Could you imagine such liberties being taken with languages like German, for instance? This slackness is not confined to America, it's also infected the English language in countries like (gasp!) Great Britain. Even the BBC, until recently a paragon of public English expression, has stooped to howlers such as "There's many people who have ..." (should be "there are many people who have ..."), "The amount of services ..." (should be number of services), and, one of my pet peeves, "woman journalist/doctor/politician ...", when it should be "female". Do we hear "man doctor", or "man journalist"? No, we do not. So why "woman", where it should be "female"? Oyyyy!!  >:( >:( >:(

Funny you say that.  Some ladies have commented on my eyelashes and told me those should belong to a lady.  That usually puts me at an awkward position, wondering if I should take that as a compliment on how awesome my lashes are, or perhaps there's some sort of abnormal bodily mismatch in my looks.

Then others  say, "You look like you have mascara on."  Ummm...thank you?

Men will almost always have fuller and thicker eyelashes than women, much to the latter's "disgust". From my observations, even little boys tend to have "better" eyelashes than little girls. Must be a genetic thing.

That is true, not too mention that men generally have better hair and legs too. So unfair! It's all in the testosterone apparently.

Is it testosterone or male pattern baldness, a genetic condition all its own?  I know men in their seventies who still have full heads of hair, and I know men in their twenties who are almost completely bald.  Testosterone itself cannot be the cause of this.

Excess testosterone is converted to DHT. Some men have hair follicles that are particularly sensitive to DHT. The DHT clogs up the follicles until the hair is chocked off and can no longer grow.

I finish my contract here in Japan in another year and five months and my girlfriend and I have talked about getting married and moving to Hawaii.  I've never been but she's been 5 times and says it's really nice.  We both love warm weather and the fact that there are so many Japanese folks living in Hawaii and plus the fact that it's geographically in between the U.S. and Japan makes it appealing to us- as my girlfriend is Japanese.  When we first started to talk about moving to Hawaii I checked to see if there were indeed Orthodox churches there and was quite pleased to find there are!

The eyebrow/eyelash thing on men is because they sweat a lot more, supposedly. I'm jealous of them too.

You have black hair?
That's nice.
You look more aryan (persian with black hair,brown eyes, and beige skin) than most nazis do. (haha dumb nazis aren't even aryans. the true aryans are the persians like Darius the great Black hair, brown eyes, beige skin. hahahahahaha the nazis don't even look aryan hahaha. knowing this the master race theory goes up in flames.)
I love my black hair if only it were wavy like my Dad's.
yeah I used to want to look German light hair and stuff.
Now I just want to be from the south of Europe like Greece,Italy, Spain.

Thank you everyone for sharing.

I noticed you are from Australia. Well a rather unflattering photo of me would have been when I encountered about a dozen Aussies on a bender of mine.

Before midnight, the Aussies had moved a lot of the tables and chairs in the pub we were in out of the way.

I was then asked for my belt. With enough alcohol any suggestion seems sensible, so I complied.

One of the guys took off his belt as well. This mind you is happening with cheering and jeering like a seen from Mad Max: Beyond the Thunderdome.

He basically made a figure eight with the belts. Another Aussie took off his belt and laid it on the floor. I was told to get on my hands and knees . . . Again enough alcohol and everything makes some sorta sense.

So we both got on our knees hands on either side of the belt laying on the floor. One loop of the figure eight was place around the middle of our heads and we were to attempt to pull other's entire head across the belt. The loser bought the round.

This went on for over an hour with me as the mark having to engage in this game with everyone of them.

Cheers mate!

I am pretty freaked out at how many of the men resemble high school/college crushes and friends.  :o I refuse to identify the former.

And seeing orthonorm's pictures are almost convincing me that past lives exist, because you look ridiculously familiar. I feel like I either know you or I am related to you, but either is probably not the case. There is only one woman in my life who I saw in the same way, and it took me 5 years to figure out that she looked like the 43 year old version of one of my best friends in high school. Perhaps you resemble a relative? I still can't figure it out. (Can I inquire about your ethnic background? I know I'm being nosy.)


Gals and guys alike, I do have to say that Oc.net is a great looking board!  ;D

It's a vermischte misagos a mishpacha! As my Jewish Grandfather would say who wasn't my really my Grandfather and probably never said that. The whole different last name thing didn't really dawn on me till late adolescence.

Mostly Irish. Not Scots-Irish, Lord have mercy! Relatively recently off the boat.

"German". More Austro-Hungarian than Prussian and the "Prussian" being primarily Schwaben, thank God! A bit longer in the States than the Irish folks.

Really though, because a lot of my family got here under political or economic duress, many were orphans, so other than that general sketch I can't be more specific.

Grew up with more than a quarter of my family identifying as Jewish. My Grandfather was one of the folks on the ill fated St. Louis.

Probably just Thom Yorke or Vincent Van Gogh. No beard there, so not so much Van Gogh. As I said, compared to supposed geniuses not in light of my intellect but looks and less than attractive ones at that.

Never forget the 1000th time I heard the Thom Yorke thing, I google the name and one of the first hits had to do with him being in the top 10 unattractive rock musicians of all time.

Set me back in therapy a few years. Oh well.

Having an incredibly alienating personality balances it out.

EDIT: Oh yeah, on the familiarity. I could have dated a family member of yours, if you ain't from Antartica.

Aw, the self-deprecating posts are getting to me!

Orthonorm, thanks for being as forthcoming as you can about your background.  :) It does not, in any way, resemble mine, so you being a distant relative is out. You probably resemble a celebrity, and now it's going to bug me...(and no, not Thom Yorke. One or two of your facial features match up, but there's no way I would see you and think of him. No way!)

I never had anyone compare me to a celebrity before until a few years ago. Two people compared me to the same actress, and when I looked her up on Google, I was like "REALLY?" I mean, she's not ugly, but she has an extremely large forehead and pronounced cheeks. I've been self-conscious ever since.

Actually would love to, er not really. I hate photos of me. The above happened due to bumping into a pixie of French photojournalist who wanted to see the infamous part the city of I live in. She offered to take some pictures, my Grandmother has incessantly hocked me for one for forever, hence those.

Regarding Aussies. Of the English speaking folks I've drank with, you all are great. Can hold your liquor. Take a ribbing with as much pleasure as giving one. And willing to get into a scuffle if the need be. Always got along well when I would bump into Aussie tourists in town. Sarcasm and general snark always welcomed by you all.

Not surprisingly for an island of prisoners, I found out you all use a incredibly vulgar word in American English as a term of affection for friends.

You have that Thom Yorke thing going on a little.

But MUCH more handsomer! From certain angles he is my doppelganger.

You don't play one well. Your lack of shorts, use of black show you to be a shrewd traveler. If only I could see your feet, then we could have a full verdict.

But yes smiling in front of a fountain in front of a museum is absolutely verboten.

Try imgur.com and when you upload it go to the section that says "Message Boards" and copy that link and paste it here.

A poster also told me that if you want to upload it from your own PC, you can go to "preview" and there is an "additional options" toward the bottom left.  Click on that and you can upload it from your own PC.  It does have a size limitation.  I had to crop out part of our picture before I quit getting error messages.

Very true.  I didn't get that one at all.  The Mrs. pointed out where Dave Mustaine has some Biblical references in his lyrics here and there.  We are not metal heads.  We enjoy quite a variety of music.  We just happened to go see them a few months before that picture was taken.

My wife and I just after our Orthodox wedding ceremony, next to the Bronze Horseman, where all Piterskie couples must be photo'd ASAP.
you look like your avatar, just younger.
I can only hope.

set second the motion, btw, that no one here, with the exception of Gebre Menfes Kidus, because his avatar has often been his photo, looks anything like I imagined.

Theoretically yes, each state can set it's own drinking age. In practice 21 is pretty universal. Some states allow 18 yrs to buy beer I believe.

Thank you so much. Yes, all three of us - Lesya, Maryana, and I - have this habit of smiling most of the time. My students always like it, even if they get less-than-perfect grades from me.:)

Maryana has studied for ~4.5 years at Harvard, in a Ph.D. program at their Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures. She has the "ABD" status ("all but dissertation"). However, right now her Wikipedia job consumes her so much that she does not do anything about her dissertation. Some time ago, it caused some frustration in her mom and me, but we got over it. After all, if she does not complete her Ph.D., she will still have her Master's degree from Harvard, which is already a nice achievement.

Also, her husband, Ryan, a lawyer by profession, is now a Ph.D. student at the UC Berkeley, so Maryana does not want to go back to East Coast.  Looks like they like California very much, even though Maryana is from Ukraine and Ryan is from Texas. :)

You can't tell from the photo, but I'm totally doing the same face as the guy on the bottle. Also, there's a little more than a liter in that bottle, so feel free to fill in a Super Troopers reference there.

I imagine they are husband/wife. I know I would not be comfortable with compliments like that from a brother-in-law.

I married at 18 :) We celebrate 15 years of marriage this New Years Eve. I met my husband when I was 15 and he was 20 actually. About 18 years and (soon to be) 5 kids later, we couldn't be happier :) I think we are 1 of like 3 couple from my husband's former unit that are still married after two deployments. A lot of people say marrying young is doom for a marriage. I think meeting/marrying young can often result in a stronger marriage.

I'm not gonna lie, we have had our ups and downs but the flame is still there. It's been great being married these past five years as I have learned and grown so much more than I could have with out a wife.

We were given a hard time frequently about marrying as young as we did. You "grow up" together and learn together a great deal. I think marrying so young especially helped with the deployments. We were both able to understand//accept that we would not be the same people we were when we reunited. People inevitably change, grow and become different over time. To expect your husband to be the same after being in a war zone is naive. To anticipate coming home to the same woman you left is also naive. You come back to each other as the same person, but that person isn't the same. You get to know each other all over again. This can cause friction, or it can cause you to fall in love all over again. It really is a choice that you can make, rather than seeing it as something that is forced on you.

Suuuure, use him as an excuse for your iPhone mirror pics. ;)

I was looking through some photos of Ukraine for me to post here and I am tres depressed at the difference between how I look then and now. I can't even. I had to put the CD away. (I know it was 4 years ago, but still...)

Mr. Ismi has given approval for me to post a pic of him, but I say no way! I am always paranoid about someone from church knowing that I post here. ;D Plus, I'd have to block out so many people because the best photos are the group shots. So PM me if you're into wedding photos or whatevz and I can send one. Some of you have been nice and PMed photos...I figure I can return the favor!

Yes, I want to see the photos, too!

By the way, not only do my "church" people know I post here, my bishop knows! 

However, I've actually struck up an actual world friendship with one of the posters here, that happens to live about 60 miles from my church.

Because of discussions on this forum, he and his wife traveled to my parish one Sunday....and they've been back a number of times since, even meeting my bishop when he last visited.

The internet can be a great tool!  It is what you make out of it!

So much so, that with just a beard, I get that comment as well, although I really don't take after my father that much.

In my family, I am pretty much hitting my deathbed.

But I tell you I am shocked by how the men my age do behave. I always thought a mid-life crisis was a joke, it ain't. And it seems to hit some around age 35.

Hair plugs, sports cars, anger toward younger women, the whole package.

But this is where my many troubles have spared me others, when your whole life has been an enormous crisis, you don't notice such bumps on the road.

Don't worry Ismi, I doubt I'll see much more than 5.

We are celebrating our wedding anniversary tomorrow - four years. :) 

My hair is a funny story!! It wasn't quite supposed to look like that - as when I went to the hair dresser to get it 'done' - the whole building moved to another city.  (Thanks to Google maps!)  So. . .one of the maids at the Inn we were staying at volunteered to do my hair for me. . .and she did a lovely job.  :)  But it was supposed to be more Edwardian.   I love what she did, though - and wouldn't trade it for the world.  She volunteered on her the only day she had off in weeks, bless her heart!

It's a nice photo. And you are a very handsome young man!

A lot of those around here.
Midlife already?

In my family, I am pretty much hitting my deathbed.

But I tell you I am shocked by how the men my age do behave. I always thought a mid-life crisis was a joke, it ain't. And it seems to hit some around age 35.

Hair plugs, sports cars, anger toward younger women, the whole package.

But this is where my many troubles have spared me others, when your whole life has been an enormous crisis, you don't notice such bumps on the road.

Don't worry Ismi, I doubt I'll see much more than 5.
 


Then there's the quarter life crisis where they just move back in with mom and dad...

My grandmother wants me to live with her, would that count as a quarter life crisis and allow me to live like 152 years?
I suppose having you around for another 114 years wouldn't be so bad, assuming that I'll live to be at least 135. But by that point, there would probably be an anathema against Jasonism (I'm willing to take bets on who from this forum will charge you with heresy at the next pan-orthodox council). On the down side, the futuristic, high-tech Orthodox monarchy will have been restored by that point, so you'll probably spend your time in exile/prison for heresy under the watchful eyes of a team of robowardens. :)

That tele is a honky-tonk machine from 1968. Not a reissue. The pickguard isnt original and the middle pick up was added by my grandfather way back in the day before it was a valuable guitar. Because of his modifications, its not worth near as much as it should be today! :(

My husband and I were fairly familiar with music gear from our teens on. When he got a job at Guitar Center we learned even more. I am just bummed that all the good companies are being sold off and the quality isn't the same. I used to dream of getting a Tobias, my husband wanted a strat. Instead we built my husband his dream franken-castor thru Warmoth. They have an INCREDIBLE chambered Stat body that has the most amazing sustain. I found an almost replacement for my Ernie Ball. I just need to switch out the pick-ups.

Oh, those were thrown away. I went for an eye exam when we were traveling in Europe (still have no idea why that happened) and picked them out. AND they were the glasses that converted into sunglasses. This was when, I believe, these were new, so it took 20 minutes for the tint of the lenses to truly change.

What the heck, why not. Here is a picture of me visiting my grandmother wearing my favorite shirt, which also happens to be the shirt I wore to Pascha. I am highly anticipating seeing a picture of Orthonorm and Nektapolic. I imagine Orthonorm as being really old, possibly on the chubby side, with a huge beard. While on the other hand I imagine Nektapolic as being really tall with blondish brown hair, big green eyes and possibly 5 o'clock shadow.

Orthonorm, Nektapolic, get over here.

More like general laziness. It's waxed and waned depending on what time of the year it is.

Here I am.

The first is a pic of me in a fedora I no longer own, with a phone I no longer use, and in a dorm I no longer live in.

The second is of me hoisting two of my little cousins. Sort of like a big brother to them.

I assume the beard came after the interest in Orthodoxy?

More like general laziness. It's waxed and waned depending on what time of the year it is.

From time to time, I've kept a mustache (my Dad has one--guess I just take after him, heh). I haven't shaved that part since November when my Mom offered to pay me to shave in time for Thanksgiving (it was No-Shave November, but I took her up on the offer). Lately, I've been experimenting with a soul patch.

How well do you grow facial hair? If you can get an even distribution, it'd probably work. If not you'll look like me:

If you can grow it, do it!!!

However, I thought you were really young.  Maybe im mixing you up with another person here.  I couldnt grow anything when I was 16.  At 23, its finally filling in but its still nothing impressive.  Ha!

To answer your question: I think you'd look fine. Take that with a grain of salt. I don't mind facial scruff, but not everyone likes it. Plus, I'm an internet stranger- so what do I know? I do think that if you think you want a beard, you should go for it. It's not like it's a permanent thing, after all. If you grow one and hate it, it's the work of a moment to shave it off. Then at least you'd know one way or the other.

Nah, I'm just joking around, since some people take that stuff very seriously, as though you aren't a real man or really truly Orthodox if you don't grow a beard (if you're a guy).  I think it's perfectly fine to decide it's not for you right now and you'll try it later though.

Not joking now, but just for the record, I don't like beards on girls. Please girls, I know it'd probably be embarrassing, but please shave if you have to. Please?  ;D :angel: :police:

I'll be damned, I did it.

Woah...You do not look a thing like I imagined you looking. I imagined you as being tall, slender with short hair, almost shaved, 5 o'clock shadow, tanned skin and big eyes.

Weren't you the one who remarked that you're shocked when people don't look like their avatars?

Well, I'm not shocked so much as I really wanted you to at least be wearing a chullo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chullo)...I mean, if you're not going to be a llama, it's the next best thing, right?

That's what I was going to say!  I can't tell you how hard it is, not having photoshop at my disposal. I had to find just the right shirt--too snug and the outline of my belly would be apparent, too loose and it'd hang down in a straight line from the peak of the belly, wrong color (too light) and the problem wouldn't be masked as well as it was, but if the color was too dark any hope of giving the illusion of no belly might be lost. Also, having the word "athletic" on the shirt was in the hope that the power of suggestion might be at work (even though I bought that shirt at Dollar General)  ;D

I imagine the alpaca being more contented than giggling. Like perhaps somewhere out of frame, you could see that it is standing next to a diploma from ITT Tech in criminal justice or A/C and refrigerator repair or something. And that look on its face is its way of communicating to you, the viewer, that alpaca-sense of "yay! I did it!"

I don't even know why I'm this insanely stupid today, honestly. I got a decent night's sleep and it's only 9:30.

I imagine the alpaca being more contented than giggling. Like perhaps somewhere out of frame, you could see that it is standing next to a diploma from ITT Tech in criminal justice or A/C and refrigerator repair or something. And that look on its face is its way of communicating to you, the viewer, that alpaca-sense of "yay! I did it!"

I don't even know why I'm this insanely stupid today, honestly. I got a decent night's sleep and it's only 9:30.

No, I see what you're saying. It does look content, with an undercurrent of alpaca pride. In the interest of full disclosure, this is the full picture:

That brown alpaca does have a pretty balla expression on its face... While we're analyzing alpaca expressions.

So my children wanted my wife to braid my hair. First they told me I looked like Snoop Dog, then they told me I looked like Willie Nelson. Although Snoop and Willie certainly have one thing in common, I don't have much in common with either one of them. Although I most definitely prefer Willie's music to Snoop's.  ;)

 I saw a ghost on a CW battlefield once.. Two of them actually.

I mistaken for a Ghost once. I was coming home from a re enactment. Three days in the field and you look and smell pretty realistic.

I decided to stop by the Balls Bluff battlefield which I was passing on the road. It is not built up at all, just woods.

There is a small cemetery on it with a stone wall around it. I was there in uniform looking around. It was somewhat dark due to all the Tree overhang.

A car pulled up and some tourists piled out and came around the stone wall into the cemetery. They took one look at me and backed up LOL.

I had to shout at them that I was not a Ghost and calm them down..     ;D

Another time there was a big maneuver ( to give our officers practice) waaaay out in the woods in PA, unadvertised to the Public. About  three thousand on each side.

I was detached from the main force commanding a small group of what are known as "Berdan's" Sharpshooters who wear green uniforms and were being used to scout ahead.

We came to a narrow paved road that had a small car parked on the side with two people inside. There was lots of woods around. We were resting, I dont think they saw us.

All of a sudden, rabbits started streaming out of the woods, then deer running for their life and hoping over the road. A few minutes later Federal Cavalry came jumping through. Ten horses, twenty , a hundred. Then infantry came tumbling out and were crossing the road, hundreds of guys.

They had seen enough. They threw the car into reverse and sped away down the road backwards. I can imagine the conversation: " I don't really know what's going on but I'm not going to wait around to find out"

Another time there was a big maneuver ( to give our officers practice) waaaay out in the woods in PA, unadvertised to the Public. About  three thousand on each side.

I was detached from the main force commanding a small group of what are known as "Berdan's" Sharpshooters who wear green uniforms and were being used to scout ahead.

We came to a narrow paved road that had a small car parked on the side with two people inside. There was lots of woods around. We were resting, I dont think they saw us.

All of a sudden, rabbits started streaming out of the woods, then deer running for their life and hoping over the road. A few minutes later Federal Cavalry came jumping through. Ten horses, twenty , a hundred. Then infantry came tumbling out and were crossing the road, hundreds of guys.

They had seen enough. They threw the car into reverse and sped away down the road backwards. I can imagine the conversation: " I don't really know what's going on but I'm not going to wait around to find out"

Cleanshaven, looking like a classy Creamsicle at my school's ball:

Dancing with a married woman? You playa you! You got game! Woo!  ;D
I think that's a purity ring.

Another girl, with whom I sadly didn't have the pleasure of dancing that night, used to wear a purity ring, but had to take it off because of a nickel allergy. So if anybody asks what the opposite of an STD is, it's that. True story.

LOL. Nice!

You should check out the research into the behavior or girls who wear purity rings, take vows of chastity, perpetual virginity, etc.

It just confirms my general strategy for raising a girl.

Sounds about right for this girl. She dated a couple of my friends, leading to copious amounts of weird high school drama. No idea how she plays into the statistics orthonorm referenced though.

She and her current boyfriend of a few months will be attending the same small Christian college in upstate New York together. I wish them the best.

I love this shirt. Fortunately for me, the dress I have to wear is decidedly not ugly. No poofy sleeves or strangely placed bows or anything! The heels are stupid high and I'm stupid tall and it's outdoors, so I'm pretty much just hoping I can make my way down the aisle (picture a new baby colt taking its first awkward steps) without falling on my face. Or passing out while standing still in one place, as I have been known to do.  ;D Scary!

Thanks. Which one? I'm sure our lurcher thinks she's the cutest and she definitely thinks she's a girl (not a dog)!

Thanks Gebre, you are a good friend, and you helped me calm down. Soccer is going well for me, I will actually be in your neck of the woods for a game in a few weeks.

I apologize to Zeal and Gabriel, I shouldn't have got so fiery, I had a bad day yesterday, but that isn't an excuse I'm sorry. I don't mean to look selfobsessed, I just use this site like Facebook, and I shouldn't. Please forgive me.

In an attempt to answer this question I present here two more people (my grandparents), to help get closer to the goal of knowing what "everyone" looks like  :P ;D

Yeah, if you want to avoid ever being mistaken for a man by a meat-eater, let me know. You have a lot to work with.

You could make quite a lovely woman or a handsome man.

Please do.  It is important to pander to ethnic/national stereotypes when visiting a foreign land.  I would never visit EUland without my cowboy hat, boots, and six-shooter lest they loose their impression of Americans.  My great-grandma visited here from Germany once and saw that Die Indianer didn't wear feathers anymore and was saddened by it.  I have never forgiven the Chippewa for that.

I guess I'm out of it, it's been four years since I lived full-time in the US.  During my last stint you could find such clothing in the US but it'd be considered hipster / metro whereas in my impression is such is far more mainstream here in Europe.

Please do.  It is important to pander to ethnic/national stereotypes when visiting a foreign land.  I would never visit EUland without my cowboy hat, boots, and six-shooter lest they loose their impression of Americans.  My great-grandma visited here from Germany once and saw that Die Indianer didn't wear feathers anymore and was saddened by it.  I have never forgiven the Chippewa for that.

It's funny that a fair number of Europeans are shocked such isn't the case in America.

I have desperately tried to held that kind of view but after reading political forum of OC.net for some time I'm starting believe that my stereotypes about Americans are 100% true.

I'm shocked.  I thought they'd be 110% true.

What's wrong with his trousers?

Well the legs are a little too short, they aren't skinny enough and somehow they are awfully boring. I'm not exactly sure why since I have other that kind of jeans and they are perfectly fine by me. I'd throw/sell/give them away but I don't like giving away theoretically fine clothes so I just stick with using them while my gay outfit is dirty.

Sorry brother, but the skinny jeans need to go.  I saw the thumbnail and was thinking, wow she's kinda cute...but then I noticed...Alpo...Alpo's a he!!!!   Then I opened it up and noticed the beard.

I don't know what you are all talking about.   There's nothing wrong with Alpo's jeans.  They are way better than the oversized ones kids wear that keep falling off because they are some 10 sizes too large for them.

I'm not used to the long hair, but, otherwise, I think he looks fine.

Oversized jeans deserve ridicule as well.  If someone posts a pic wearing them that is post-dated later than 1998 I will ask them their opinion of being on the DL...and I don't mean the Liturgy...

Liza has a heart of gold, hasn't she? - Very natural, but a bit formal - would be used by careful speakers.

Otherwise, more colloquially, Liza's got a heart of gold, doesn't she?

However, English being what it is, there are regional and personal preferences. Nothing really "unnatural" about any of the sentences.

Interesting - hasn't she seems odd to me since tag questions usually repeat the auxiliary verb, which in this case is does.  The tricky thing with teaching English is that usage changes a lot faster than what grammarians say is proper.  And when I try to ask people they usually say they think is correct rather than what they normally say.  So I have a hard time balancing what to use in the classroom.             

Who cares?  Does a compliment for someone Godly on this forum bother you to the point that you have to resort to this kind of triviality to wreck the feeling of the moment?

I thought I had made it clear that I made no objection about the comment itself, rather I was curious about usage.  I guess I should have split this off and started a thread in the English board.

american english cracks me up!
here in the uk the average person (not just a posh person) would say:
'liza has a heart of gold, hasn't she?'
so vamrat wins the english competition
 ;)

and the londoner would say:
liza's go' 'n 'eart o' gold innit?'
so lbk was close, but anyone dropping their 't's and 'h's so much would be from the london area,
and in order to live in london, you have to say 'innit' all the time.
it is short for 'isn't it' and is used at the end of any question, irrrespective of which verb should actually be used in negation.

You're missing the point, Andriu. Mabsoota looks like that lady, that lady is pretty, therefore Mabsoota is a pretty lady. Quod erat demonstrandum! :police:

Didn't you make the news one time before, like last year, wearing a Sabres jersey? Or was that someone else?  :)

Being very tall is not the best thing in the world either. Besides, I think short looks better on women anyway  ;)

'a 'n't she?

The magic word you're looking for is " inni' " (isn't it). This can also be used as a full stop, colon, semi-colon, while the word "yeah" takes the place of the comma.

Nice pics.

I always wonder why Marxists want to look sophisticated. The attire doesn't seem commensurate with the ideal. Glad you outgrew that phase.  ;)

The problem is, Marx was a tool.  He aspired to one of us bogtrottters.  But he failed.  Drink a lot of gin and listen to The Dubliners and you'll understand.  It took me ten minutes to write this.  See?

The magic word you're looking for is " inni' " (isn't it). This can also be used as a full stop, colon, semi-colon, while the word "yeah" takes the place of the comma.

That's only a south eastern thing (and a pretty modern one - old people usually use 'aint it'). Where I grew up it would have been 'a'n't she? or (or possibly dunt she?) Inni' isn't used at all (the equivalent would be inti' and you certainly can't use that in any place where isn't it isn't appropriate.

Of course, where I grew up you might well hear 'dunt tha?' (don't you) or 'sithee' (see you) as thee and thou are still used in everyday speech. There really is no such thing as an English accent so if (as in the post that sparked this topic) someone asks what would sound most natural to a native Englishman, my reply would have to be to ask, 'from where?'
