To the denizens who want more from me than a well timed quip in a ridiculous thread on this board.

Best of luck.

Hope to have proper xmas greetings and all that finished before the old calendar xmas is over.

Hang in there!
I second it!

My last night of work before the holiday. You guys have no idea how excited I am. My wrists are even more excited. Of course getting off the computer when I'm not working would help, but that requires an iron will that I don't possess..

Lucky duck.  I have two and a half more days!

I don't have a problem with tattoos on other people, I've just never been able to think of anything I wanted on my body permanently.

There is nothing I can think of that will look attractive on me when I'm 70, wrinkly, and gravity has taken its toll.  :laugh:

Getting my new tattoo in about an hour and a half. So excited!

Why I am not suprised that it was about St. Olav? :P

Just a random post, Kiwis (people from New Zealand) are so weird. But I love them, I have a couple of Kiwi mates and they are the wildest, most crazy people I've ever seen. They make Aussies, Americans, and even Scandinavians seem...well boring.

I honestly can't stand the accent.  It's not quite Ozzie, it's not quite Pom, either of which would be fine.  Perhaps it's just the Kiwis I've heard.

I was at the RC National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on Monday. There were very beautiful mosaics and many statues and icons of Our Lady.

They had a Maronite and a Ruthenian chapel. I wondered if they ever have eastern Divine Liturgies in them.

When we were leaving we saw a church with golden onion domes in the distance. I thought it might be an Orthodox church. It turned out to be the Ukrainian Catholic National Shrine of the Holy Family.

I'm sorry, I havent' seen any of the other art there, but everytime I think of that building, I think of this. I generally try to be as charitable as possible in viewing western art as a western expression of faith in Christ, but I really don't care too much for this particular image. I'm sure they have some very beautiful imagery there, I'm just not familiar with it.

And FWIW, these are our Fathers too, you know.

I agree with you on that particular mosaic. Christ having half of His chest bared was a little too macho for my tastes, lol.

Especially if it is red curry.  Yellow curry is a bit too strong for my tastes.  Still like it, but not nearly so much as red.

The kind I eat is Korean, although I've had Japanese ramen before, which is also good.

My ex says cops came to her house to arrest me for a hit and run, which I will firstly say I do not recall. She may be making it up to freak me out (wouldnt be new), but I am conscerned. I was hit in the back by a car on wednesday and maybe when I was hit I was knocked into the car in front of me and didnt notice, it happened really fast. I spoke to the lady that hit me, all was well, no cops called. But I didnt even consider that she knocked me into the car in front of me. What to do???

I spoke to the lady that hit me, all was well, no cops called. But I didnt even consider that she knocked me into the car in front of me. What to do???

First - Did you stay at the scene of the accident long enough to get insurance and contact info from the woman who hit you?
Second - Did any person who may have been in front of you stay as well?
Third - Is there any damage to the front of your car?
Fourth - Is your ex crazy?  (I mean, yeah, obviously she is, but I am wondering if she is crazier than normal?)

Where I am going with this is, IF you stayed at the scene long enough to get info from the other motorist AND IF no one stayed who might have been in front of you, the likelihood of them being hit is slim.  Even if you did, they weren't concerned enough about it to have stayed at the scene of the accident so you should not be guilty of anything.

This may be negated if there is damage to the front of your car.  If not then this just adds to the unlikelihood of the event.
If your ex-GF is crazier than the amount usually exhibited by ex-GF's then this makes the claim even more likely.

That is Thor pictured (it's from the game Age of Mythology).  That and the hammer (Mjollnir).  I am pretty sure that Odin traded his eye to the Well of Urd for knowledge.  Oh well, either way this is more detailed info about pagan gods than a Christian has any business knowing... ;)

why would they be coming to her house and not yours?

do you get the name and number of the lady that hit you?  Did the car in front of you stop and talk too?  If not, then they were hit and ran.

This isnt' the same girl who says she likes your ax, is it?

Unfortunately, having to deal with a goofy ex, the cops can't tell you if they have a warrent unless you come in, and often not even then.

You people can't even tell a warp matrix flux capacitor from a self-sealing stem bolt, and yet you have the nerve to call yourself Trek fans? You disgust me.  And btw, this is a self-sealing stem bolt:

The irony of it all! I find a place online where I can watch the 1965 TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas, and it keeps getting interrupted by... commercials.

My ex says cops came to her house to arrest me for a hit and run, which I will firstly say I do not recall. She may be making it up to freak me out (wouldnt be new), but I am conscerned. I was hit in the back by a car on wednesday and maybe when I was hit I was knocked into the car in front of me and didnt notice, it happened really fast. I spoke to the lady that hit me, all was well, no cops called. But I didnt even consider that she knocked me into the car in front of me. What to do???

First - Did you stay at the scene of the accident long enough to get insurance and contact info from the woman who hit you?
Second - Did any person who may have been in front of you stay as well?
Third - Is there any damage to the front of your car?
Fourth - Is your ex crazy?  (I mean, yeah, obviously she is, but I am wondering if she is crazier than normal?)

Where I am going with this is, IF you stayed at the scene long enough to get info from the other motorist AND IF no one stayed who might have been in front of you, the likelihood of them being hit is slim.  Even if you did, they weren't concerned enough about it to have stayed at the scene of the accident so you should not be guilty of anything.

This may be negated if there is damage to the front of your car.  If not then this just adds to the unlikelihood of the event.
If your ex-GF is crazier than the amount usually exhibited by ex-GF's then this makes the claim even more likely.  

First - yes, Second - she did, but the light was red at the time, Third - Nope, Fourth - Eh, no but can be mean.

I got out of the car to talk to the lady who hit me, so if I hit the lady in front, should she not have came to talk to me???
Forgive my sins.

why would they be coming to her house and not yours?

do you get the name and number of the lady that hit you?  Did the car in front of you stop and talk too?  If not, then they were hit and ran.

This isnt' the same girl who says she likes your ax, is it?

Unfortunately, having to deal with a goofy ex, the cops can't tell you if they have a warrent unless you come in, and often not even then.

I used to live with her. I got the info from the lady who hit me in the back, the lady in front never even got out of her car, so I didnt think I even hit her.

Everyone likes my axe. ;)

Yes.  If she had been hit she should have gotten out to retrieve insurance and contact information.
