A pic of your admins!

Friends,

Here is a pic of your admins!  From left to right you have Bobby (Robert), Mor Ephrem (Phil), and Anastasios (Dustin).



Sincerely,

anastasios

Look at Bobby completely beardless! Can we have his kind as the administrator of an Orthodox board?  :P

Bobby looks like he is in high school. Mor Ephrem looks sharp as does Anastasios. Which icons are you guys holding?

cool pic, though I'm afraid i'm gona have to agree, bobby looks very young! He looks like he's a Jr or Sr. in Highschool.  sorry Bobby :)
All 3 of you look really sharp though!
And I love the icons you're holding too.

Nicholas is right except Bobby is holding St. Photios the Great.

Bobby is young but high school is a little too young!  He is in college.

Oh sh*t.  It's you!

<radio silence>  Agent +¼5+¬, what the hell are you doing here posing as an Indian?!  How could you have squandered and wasted so much precious time in this forum when we thought you were doing something constructive all along?  The enemy has no computer-coded military secrets hidden in this website, we can assure you.  Prepare a burlap bag to place your two friends in and report immediately to mukhabaraat headquarters.  Yalla!

And how you were able to pull off this disguise we'll never know.  Your Arabic-style hair gives you away.  We'll deal with your incompetent and sloppy tactics through the standard disciplinary measures upon your arrival.  The Tamils with whom the senior director maintains contact would have seen through you a mile away.  You're a disgrace!</radio silence>

Haha!  Actually, I had a great time.  The problem with me and photographs is that I cannot smile on command for a photo because it never comes out well.  If you want me to smile, you've gotta get me to laugh, and then you've gotta move quickly to take the shot, or else the smile will soon go (that, or your joke has to be really good!).  

However, my non-official, "holier than Dustin and Bobby" answer is that found on the icon of Saint Ephrem on the cover of a book* of his poems: "Seriousness mixed with laughter destroys souls easily."  Those guys can laugh and smile and have a good time; I, on the other hand, am serious about the faith.  :P  

Thanks, everyone, for the compliments.  I must admit, though, that Samer's post puzzles me.  Maybe that's just because I haven't been exactly with it this weekend, what with having too much fun, and studying for exams and writing papers and what not.  Care to explain, Samer?  :)

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

Nik,

Good point. Couldn't they all ban us, though?

Phil,

Come on, everybody knows you're a joker.  :psychdelic:

They could, but Phil does not know how to do anything technical, and Bobby only pops in from time to time to say something tasteless then leaves for a couple weeks thus he never sees what people post unless it can promote a snarky comment. :P ;) :cheeky:

Mor, I'm afraid you've destroyed the momentum of the joke.

[crackle]Ok agent, that's enough.  If you break radio silence again, then consider yourself in hot oil.  Report back and get your sack ready.[/static]

Bobby, that's a tasteless pic.  Really offensive, and I'm Orthodox, not RC.  It's something I might expect on a Christian-hating site, but certainly not here.  How old are you again?

Obviously Anastasios has been spending too much time living next to nanuck of the north.   He's getting a little to pale.  Come back south Anastasios, we'll let you back in.

There's something about Anastasios' expression that I can't quite put my finger on.  That smile reminds me of "The Fonz".  8)
