You're welcome!  Smiley

Yes.  Positively sin-inducing.  I wouldn't have it otherwise. 

Yeah, you knew exactly the pic I meant, didn't you?

Ladies can do that all day if they want, but it's still not going to get rid of the loose skin in the triceps area.

Geez, your vitamin-infused fruit smoothie's ready, Mr. LaLanne.

And people wonder why some of the most beautiful women you're ever gonna meet are insecure.  Go rent Shallow Hal and watch the scene where Hal tells off Rosemary's father at the dinner table.  Your Rosemary's father.  Wink

What do ya mean? I like loose underarm skin. I'm trying to get these ladies to stop thinking that there is a magic pill/exercise solution to all these cosmetic things they mis-think is wrong with them. That's what this girl is doing isn't it, "exercising"? Who is she? A famous fitness instructor? I see no jelly. I am not jelly, and she is not jelly of me, so I don't really know about all the jelly stuff. Maybe she likes to eat it? That's good.

Cool.  I'm with that.

LOL!  You're trolling, right?  She's blowing a kiss to her fans to say "Thank you!".  That's why Kelly posted it.  It was a clever way of saying "thanks" for my compliment on her effective use of these images, especially since the one I referenced also had Beyoncé in it.


Who is she? A famous fitness instructor? I see no jelly. I am not jelly, and she is not jelly of me, so I don't really know about all the jelly stuff. Maybe she likes to eat it? That's good.

Stop, man.  Just stop.

Really, you don't know?

Have you googled "I don't think you're ready for this jelly"?

I knew who she was, I was just joking (though I've never listened to more than a few minutes of her). I did indeed have to google for the 'jelly' part though, and the urban dictionary came to my rescue.  angel

So when is the big switch, Nephi?  Cool

I wait for you, Justin.  

If EO people switch do they have to give up their Byzantine Empire swag? Like could I at least keep my favorite things? I'd especially like to keep the demon-skin throw rug, the 6th century spear from the battles in Italy, my coin collection (I could condense it and get rid of the display case), at least three or four of the flags, and most especially my 13th century copy of the Code of Justinian? Also, I don't have to get like Indian or Ethiopian things do I? I only ask because I'm proud to be an American and don't much care for stuff from foreign cultures. No offense intended!

Sorry Nephi!!!

To be honest, I have no answer on the name change issue.  It would be interesting though if we have a Coptic priest named Photius, even though I know of no one in this instance.

It is a must that you have to have pictures of Haile Selassie with the Ethiopian royal flag, as a refutation of the heresy of the code of Justinian and the Byzantine imperial emblem.

On the flip side, what if Abouna Dioscoros or Abba Sawiros becomes EO?

There are other saints named Dioscorus and Severus  Wink...

Perhaps Abouna Jacob Baradeus or Abouna Philoxenus to be really clear...lol

Personally, I think Metropolitan Thomas Mor Leomoreproblemos would have the most trouble.  He could always become a Nektary or a Varlaam.

Alright, so what's the line between Confession as "changing Churches" and as "just the sacrament?" IOW, does it have to be done with the specific intent to change Churches?

Presumably, the convert-to-be would be discussing these matters with a priest such that the first Confession is the one that also functions as the means of conversion.  AFAIK, there's no special prayer or other distinctive element.  You would confess and then receive Communion.  You would probably sign some paperwork listing you as a member of the parish.  Maybe they'd bring you a slice of cake or some sweets?  Perhaps tell you about projects that require your money prayers?  Tongue

It's usually not that difficult.
