I was incredibly bored and made a drawing. It's the Archbishop of Kawaii and all of Desu-san. He's cute.

Technically, wouldn't the lives of adults be more valuable than children, since adults are capable of doing things, whereas children are totally dependent for the most part?

someone brought me grapes I did not have the heart to turn the person down though I did not want to eat those grapes, now I don't feel so hot, and I am turning as green as those grapes... man this is not going to end well.

Francis is a sissy name (or assisi name... same thing). That's worse than the other popes like John and John Paul and such. Benedict was a step in the right direction, but now this? Are there no cool names in Catholicism?

Nice. You should try making an Orthodox comic book. I don't thing there any yet.  You could try an online one in the beginning and get some feedback...even if it is just for kids and kicks aka pleasure.

Russian scientists have finally admitted that Russians are really Finns with wrong language. I hope that news reach Putin so that he can hand over Russia to president Niinistö. Patriarch Cyril could become metropolitan under Archbishop Leo.

Dear S.C. Johnson,

You have been promising to be more forthright regarding what chemicals are in your products. My can of Glade spray lists the ingredients as: "fragrance, solubilizers, emulsifier, stabilizer, corrosion inhibitor, propellants."  I hope you plan to do a bit better than this in the future.

I'm moving there, just got a job out there.

Yeah I'll be in the downtown area for awhile, until I decide on what to do if I want to live in a township or not.

Yeah, but it's not normal up here to have snow at this time. According to our mental clock, it should be spring right now. We will get even more depressed.

I hate mornings. I always either miss church or am super late. Sure I'll go to compline or an akathist or a vespers sometime during the week but that doesn't count. This is why I had to turn my priest down when he asked me to join the church at Pascha. I feel like I should overcome my sloth and actually regularly attend  before that.

For what it's worth, I want to go (back) to Greece as well. If we win the lottery, we're so moving back for about 2/3 of the year.

Just finished 16 pages of typing. Took me the whole of the weekend, in between keeping up with the necessities of life, and really kept me out of the loop of things.

2/3rds of the year? I am happy with one week every year.

Well, I'd have to decide if I want my son to go to school here in the UK or in Greece, and that would decide where we would spend most of our time. But with the lottery bagged, either wouldn't be a problem. ;)

We don't really get snow in California, save maybe a few mountain peaks in the northernmost regions during winter. Here we just get strong, freezing winds and rainfall during the winter. Specially, in the Bay Area, almost everyday feels like it is autumn due to the overcast weather and wind. We usually only get like 3-4 weeks of hot days in summer, then it goes back to the average autumn-ish weather.

No. I have tried candlepin bowling, which I really liked, and played when I went on vacation to Massachusetts.
