I post here often enough to where I should try and not be so anonymous.  I don't feel particularly comfortable posting permanent images of myself up, and I don't feel comfortable at all posting up images of other people, so I'll do this:

You look older than what I envisioned.

We go grey early.  My dad was all grey by 30, so at least I beat him on that. I did get carded yesterday though, so that was flattering.

That' so unfair.  I've only got a few white strands here and there.  ;D  The very first ones showed up in my late teens.  Maybe by the time I'm 40 I'll be all snowy-headed and classy.

thanks for rubbing it in, I don't mind grey hair at all though.  My sister however, that's another issue.  When she was in 7th grade she found one, bawled her eyes out, locked herself in her room, and when my poor unsuspecting dad came home from work tore into him and his genes like a harpy pestering poor old King Phineus.

To this day I've never seen another grey hair on her head.  It must be a miracle, kind of like how my mom stopped aging and having birthday's at 45.  The women in my family are truly blessed.

Nothing wrong with baldness though. Bald suits some people rather fine.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

I want to be like Dominika when I grow up.
What?

It's a compliment, though I don't blame you for being suspicious.  ;)

There is nothing for free in this world (except Christ), even good words.

Maybe he's born with it?

I keep expecting to see a short product description or two, accompanied by prices. 
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
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...

"A religion true to its nature must be concerned about man's social conditions. Religion operates not only on the vertical plane but also on the horizontal. It seeks not only to integrate men with God but to integrate men with men and each man with himself.  Any religion that professes to be concerned with the souls of men and is not concerned with the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them, and the social conditions that cripple them is a dry-as-dust religion."
