Really?  You don't celebrate Pascha with us?  :(

Well, I tend to celebrate the major feasts twice, but I only observe the major fasts once.  ;)

You're not in favor of 80 day carb binges.... ??? Twice the amount of fish served in between?

If I could eat fish during Great Lent, I would be so much happier.  But alas, we are not allowed to have fish, not even on Annunciation or Palm Sunday. 

After March is over and I do my liturgical time travel among the rest of the Orthodox, I will do my best not to smell like meat, but that doesn't mean I won't be full of it.

I think it's clear Peyton is suffering from post-concussion symptoms with his Budweiser and Papa Johns endorsements.

That was so amazing when I saw that.  "I'm going to kiss my wife and drink beer. Wait!   I mean... I'm going to drink Budweiser beer specifically.  Lots of Bud Beer."  Then I'm going to watch replys of the "Beef O Brady.com bowl"

How are you going to remake Road House, what a crock of crap. Burn Hollywood burn!

Hollywood is running dry.  It's unwilling to take risks.  Didn't they remake Point Break?  I'm still waiting for a Citizen Kane trilogy.

Maybe a book about a saint's life. :) "St. Nikolai and the Orthodox Mission to Japan" was very good.

I have no idea Seraffa.  It never occurred to me how biodegradable any clerical clothes are.

The one with the white hat is the late Ethiopian Patriarch Abune Paulos.  Sometimes the head archbishop of the Ethiopian Church will wear something like this to differentiate himself from the other bishops of the Synod.

How many stripes are on each end?

I was talking to my priest on this.  He mentioned that it is actually an Ethiopian Orthodox tradition that some of our clergy liked and adopted for their own.  Every Ethiopian monastery has their own stripes and colors.  The one my priest has would have three stripes that stretches the length of the scarf on one side, and then at the end of the scarf, three overlapping stripes at that end.  That's the basic design.  Some can get elaborate, like crosses and icons, etc.

After doing a quick google image search of Ethiopian bishops, here are some photos I found (notice in the first picture the same bishop Mor posted is sitting all the way in the back, upper right corner, with his typical scarf around headgear style):









This is fascinating. How biodegradeable are those hats? Esp. the Chef Hat near Mor?
