You guys have me in tears.  :D

Just got my kilt refitted, pondering my level of self-worth/decency.
Antonis has just been added to my dreams.  Spoiler alert:  He's a hottie.


That is exactly what I look like. Uncanny. Truly uncanny.
You sound like a professional who knows what he's talking about.  That's because you are.

Really ZZ?  Really?  No one wants to see you frolicking naked through the pasture.  >:(

Fine. I'll put a sweater on.



A top on with nothing on bottom? You realize that that's no less tempting for some guys, right?  >:( ;D :P

ZZ loves to photobomb:

Are you sure that's all it was?  Or was there also a certain amount of "If you don't have enough to share with everyone..."?

Here I am, employing my children in a shameless begging campaign earlier today. And I have to say that the first person to respond was an Orthodox Priest from Knoxville, TN who is a huge Tennessee fan. He said he would purchase the media guide for us and send it soon. A tremendously kind and gracious gesture from a fan of one of BAMA's biggest rivals! Thank you Father Patrick!!!  :)

Gebre, I think I have a man crush on you.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

Kids do grow way too fast, and it's exciting and sad all at the same time. :) But I was noticing the fence behind you guys, which I assume is a 6' privacy fence- am I right? If so- your family is blessed with height! :P

You can adopt me if you want  :laugh: I'm only 5"3 and according to my medical records I haven't grown a bit in about 2 years now. Be advised however that I may consume a lot of coffee, I'm grumpy during Summer, and I'll probably never give you grandchildren.

Ouch, you cut me to the heart. Not your implication, because it is quite true that I was working up to that, but rather the fact that you would dismiss me so quickly. I have needs, Justin.  NEEDS.

I did not intend to dismiss you, it's just that two young bucks like us need to be honest about our expectations. Getting into a relationship with me is kind of like getting a vasectomy: it's probably going to be painful, and you really have to be committed for the long term. If you aren't absolutely sure, then it shouldn't happen.

That's very nice, but just so we're clear, I will not be your 'safety' in case it doesn't work out with Mr. Phrem.
Ouch, you cut me to the heart. Not your implication, because it is quite true that I was working up to that, but rather the fact that you would dismiss me so quickly. I have needs, Justin.  NEEDS.

I did not intend to dismiss you, it's just that two young bucks like us need to be honest about our expectations.

Who's doing your vasectomies over there, bro?  And how is s/he doing them?

The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

And what is the penance you will receive afterwards?
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Out here in PA, we just tie it up with piano wire.  We don't need any of your fancy NY doctoring. Next thing you know, we'll be hearing about how scared you are to do your own cataract surgeries too.  ::)
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

Sounds good to me. I been needing to get one of those.
Until I see the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come, I will not believe.
