Do all men have man crushes on Bear Grylls?  ???

I like his knives.  Otherwise, Les Stroud is a lot better.  I fell asleep many a time watching Survivor Man.  Man vs Wild just doesn't do it for me.

Oh, and my dad pronounces it "Grill-is".  My brother and I laugh frequently about my Bear Grill-is Machete.
Yessss, Mr. Ismi loves Les Stroud, too. In fact, I asked him which one he'd pick (Grylls vs. Stroud) and he said Stroud hands down.

We also watch Dual Survival and Man, Woman, Wild -- the latter not for any survival tips but because those two are a freaky, older version of the two of us. I swear if we did that show, we would totally get divorced. This is why we don't go into the wild and kill turtles together.

Another mispronunciation story: Mr. Ismi used to pronounce his name "Bear Grimms," which always made me think of the Grimm Brothers. Don't know where he saw that "m."

Celtic! Congrats ;D So now you are going to be moving to Norway?

For the second time in the past few weeks, some person (can't say what I really want to call him or her) took my bank card number and bought a bunch of stuff. Thank God I checked my account online, or I never would have known. I called the bank right away and they filed reports and put the money back. I'm getting  a new card in the mail. Crimony, do I have bad luck or what?  :'( I think from now on, I'll just put all my money in a sock.

So, a friend handed us down a feather mattress top a couple of weeks ago, which we intended to use for guests. They said that they were so comfortable that we began to get curious about how it would do on the bed.

....This is the third day in a row that we've overslept by about half an hour or so. It's dangerous, but being bad never felt so good. I hope we're not having more guests any time soon!  :angel:

Would it scare you to know that I have twice that? LOL.

I heard an interview from Muriel Siebert, who is a pretty fascinating woman. I have little to no interest in the corporate, Wall Street world, so I didn't know who she was, but I was reading up on her story for some research. There's a great quote, but I figure I'll wait for the interview to come out before I post it.

Reminded me of one of Connie Hilton's lines from Mad Men. Just the way they said it...

Very weird...after being in a rotten mood for weeks on end, I woke up this morning with a long list of things to do and a stressful appointment later today and I just felt this great peace. More content than I have been for a while.

Thank you, God.

Useful word.  Does the word differentiate as to whether it was a Queen or a Rook that did it?

BTW - this is my "leet" post.  1337 posts.  I was going to say something Mark-Twain-Brilliant with this one.  Oh well.  Got away from me.

Today after the DL and a coffee four hour. I was kicking around the privileged, hippy, college part of town to grab some ice cream.

Was chatting up one of the merchants in one of those "new age" stores.

They literally had an "altar" to some made up goddess by an angry lesbian in 1979 or something. All the while, people are sitting around it with laptops and drinking fair traded, organic coffee or tea or virgin blood or whatever.

Girl invited me to a Samhain ritual tonight.

Ohhhhhh.........

How this Orthodox stuff will get in the way of future possible anecdotes.

See how much I sacrifice?

I am shedding tears for you, doll.

I am having those days (more like months) where I am very close to embracing minimalism (more in the sense of not having a lot of things, rather than the spiritual zen stuff that comes with it) but the closer I get, the more I go shopping or get the urge to purchase something. Anyone ever break the cycle? It's been a struggle for years.

The minimalism stuff isn't, but the first line was. No worries.

I just need someone to come to my house and start throwing stuff out. And shred my credit cards. And then leave before I chase them around the house with a series of weapons.  Anyone up for the job?

ETA: Wait, are you saying that I am posting a hipster post on top of your hipster post? I can't keep up with you sometimes. Scratch that. All the time.

I'll gladly get rid of your stuff. I love it. Since a kid, I've been loath to owning stuff, well we didn't have much, but I still don't like it.

I love cleaning out day at work.

Got another icon today at the parish. It is touching, but it is getting out of control. I had to ask someone not to give me one of my Patron Saint today.

//:=)

But really, there is no way a great story ain't going to come out of going to a Samhain ritual with a girl you just met.

Impossible.

More for sleep than piety that I didn't say yes. Those neo-pagans are probably less dangerous than the battery operated laughing witches I have to endure to my soul.

Great, but if you go through my makeup stash or throw out my childhood books or --

Sigh, see? ;) What's sad is that I already purged half. Not enough.

I wish I was getting tons of icons! I'll give up some clothes for that, no problem.


I would bet that the neo-pagans would be incredibly boring yet amusing at the same time. That's been my (limited) experience.

I would bet that the neo-pagans would be incredibly boring yet amusing at the same time. That's been my (limited) experience.

You're right. Except the real alchemy begins with me, not ends in.

"Life is for enjoyin', not just for workin' and gettin' and workin' and gettin'."

A great line from the mediocre movie, Songcatcher.

2 Kings 2:23-24

And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.

And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
