I guess I can leave her for hecma.  He seems to be more into tattoos than I.  He owes me big though!   :D

You had me worried for a moment...
As I stated before, Carrie Underwood is more my type.  Nice wholesome looking girls.  ;)
Do I still post here?

Ahh...that's better.  And she can sing, too!

You know, I've always wondered what (or if, rather) young women who get tattoos think they're going to look like when they're 50, or 60, or 70, etc....But...by then, maybe they just won't give a damn. :-\

When did we start discussing nephilim? 
"Do not tempt the Mor thy Mod."

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.

Isn't this thread about Orthonorm dating nephilim??

Wholesome in what sense?  Wonderbread wholesome?  The kind that kills lab mice?   ;D  Also, if I'm old and I get to hang out with old tattooed rocker biddies, sign me up!

Well, the tattoos would make for interesting topics of discussion and distract you from other issues....you know, like sagging body parts, bald patches, methane, bad teeth, just to name a few.  Go for it, dude!

Wonderbread.  Not so named for no reason at all, you know...Besides, it only killed the dumb lab mice (the ones who ate it with Oscar Meyer bologna and no mustard--it was really the lack of mustard that did them in).  I ate it all throughout my childhood, and bounced no end of balls made from it, and hey....I'm still here.  Well...sort of, anyway  ;D

The lesson here is that mustard is the key to a life full of vigor.  Although you can be full of mustard, just don't cut it.

A lesson well-learned, good sir.

Cheese, on the other hand, is eminently worth cutting.  In fact, it is highly desirable to do so--frequently and with gusto.

Jason: I think you are ignoring one important thing... I didn't even know you were pregnant!

Jane: How is that an excuse? Would you have treated me differently otherwise? Or Susan?

Jason: Oh whatever, Susan has nothing to do with this. And you know how I feel about you!

Jane: Yeah. You feel things for me. Just not love.

Jason: Please Jane, let's not do this again.

Jane: And to think I almost went to Texas!

Jason: That would have worked out fine. Sebastian is doing well there. And anyway, I'm ok with you wanting to stay here in Nevada.

Jane: Are you?

Jason: Of course. You don't believe me?

Jane: I think you need to work on your lying. Every time you kiss me, every time you speak her name, I can see it in your eyes. It's not me you want.

Jason: WHAT?

Jane: I think this is the end Jason.

Jason: Wait! What are you saying?

Jane: The baby isn't yours Jason.

Jason: [stares at Jane, confused]

Jane: Joe is the baby daddy.

Jason: JOE!!!!! JOE????? How could it be Joe? Since the accident he hasn't even been able to--

Jane: He had some of his sperm frozen before the accident. And when it was clear that he loved me and you didn't, well...

Jason: This is... how could you do this to me? After all we've been through?

Jane: I'm leaving you Jason.

Jason: What? No! You can't!

Jane: I've also emptied your bank accounts, as a sort of "going away gift" for me. And if you breathe a word of this to the cops I'll tell them about what happened to poor little Scotty.

Jason: You wouldn't!

Jane: I would. ...   Well, goodbye Jason. The sex was great, but you just aren't worthy of me. Have fun with Susan.

Jason:  [on the verge of tears]

Jane: Oh, and Susan used to be a man.

Pascha in September?  What's up with that??

September is an interesting month.  "Sept" being the root for "seven", traditionally attributed as God's number, sinceHe rested on the seventh day.  But with Roman emperors adding months here and there, it is now the ninth month.  3 for the Trinity and 3 for the days that Christ was entombed.  3X3=9.  Perfect storm of blessings!

Have you discussed this with your priest, or even better, your bishop?  They might be interested.

Maybe a fixed date feast like Christmas, but what calendar are you using?  In AD 6500, Orthodox will probably fighting over hundreds of different calendars.  Hopefully not.   ;)

This thread gets better and better.  I credit Asteriktos.  Glory be to his name.

Indeed!  And the feast (you know, the one in Sept. in like AD 6,500 or something) he is too humble to name is the Feast of the Beheading of the Most Wholly Asterisk.

Nah, man.  It's gotta be "I credit Asteriktos (PBUH)".

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.

I liked this thread before Trisagion and Co. got a hold of it. Now it's just really bizarre.

A girl whom I've had an argument with keeps sending me messages and tries to contact me. I don't feel like talking to her any time soon (or ever again, for that matter) but ignoring her makes me feel bad, too.

What to do?

explain you are busy and apologise for your lack of contact. then don't say much after that.

Man up and in no uncertain terms say that you're not interested and won't be.

Am I employed by Trisagion & Co., LLP?  I need to see your liability certificates.  Besides, I haven't seen a paycheck yet.

The work is pro bono.  The reward is in the work.  Here's your bonus:

Wow!!  A compliment from William about the company's work is even greater than "ultimate". ;)
