No. Not at all. Never. Nope. Nary a chance.

If you happen to drop the name accidentally, however, it won't be held against you.

OF COURSE I know her name. I don't find pictures of random chicks and use them as my avatars. I am not a guy, haha.

Mariangela Demurtas, the Sicilian lead singer of one of my favorite bands, Tristania.

I was watching the "Year of the Rat" music video and she had wavy hair, a flower in her hair, and hoop earrings. I thought, "I want to be her!" Or I want her nose, at the very least. I thought she was Indian at first.


Sorry for ruining your guessing game.  :P

I don't know what reason I would have for typing "girls" into Google, or adding some qualifiers ("Russian girls," "Lebanese girls"). I think that when I type Russian into Google and my automatic search assumes "GIRLS," it's your* fault.

Hey, I know some of these guys are pervs, but don't blame me for this! I'm quite specific with my searches. And I really don't have to do searches any more, I just click on the links in a folder labeled "girls". Emmanuelle Chriqui... Karen Gillan... Michele Lepe... Miranda Otto... What more do I need?  :police:  :P

LOL! 

My Internet Connection at home is rather slow.... therefore, the whole image didn't show up right away.

This is what I saw...and it seemed to me like someone with their eyes closed, making a wish!

Wow. Being baptized in a beer keg?

My priest had a fit when we suggested using a horse trough for an adult baptism.
Neither did he want to use a kiddy pool as do the Greeks.

The first Orthodox baptism I witnessed was in a horse trough. It was at a ROCOR parish with no pews, men and women separated, and all that other "traditional propriety" stuff. :angel:

My first reaction to that pic was that, for those who don't know what's going on, it is definitely close to one of those: "Sense. This picture makes none." things.

What's wrong with that? Before we had a baptismal font built permanently into the narthex of our church--our church building dates back only to 1996, though our parish community is much older than that--a horse trough was all we had for adult baptisms.

The original pic was going to be a bunch of people I've seen in chat, but I couldn't really figure out how to make it work, so I settled for just a couple awkward paintbrushed images.  ;D

Just empty your mind of all thoughts, and then look at the picture.  It will remind you of a Chinese food restaurant.  Unless, of course, you have no imagination and are a fool.
