I sleep nude. I walk around my house nude. I cook nude. I've gone in the middle of the night to get my mail nude.

Well I dunno, I've seen people text each other erotic stuff that is under the umbrella of sexting.

But I've never sent photos of myself...

As far as canonical hours are concerned, the Orthodox usually three-sext: trithektizo sounds cool in Greek. Kind of like Quinisext in Latin...

No.  "I cook nude" and "I've gone in the middle of the night to get my mail nude" is more what I had in mind when making that comment.

Tell me about it. People didn't like my French moustache that appeared from out of nowhere in last night's dream. At least it is better than the dreams about grammar that plagued me the last few weeks.

I have a different perspective based on my life experiences. Men are more sensitive, emotional and caring than women. Sometimes it takes sharing a bottle of red wine to find that out, sometimes not.

I strongly believe that men have deeper and more complex emotions than women. Have felt that way for a long time now.

Now I put on my flame suit..

When folks ask, "Who is Mor Ephrem?",  make sure you say "Doctor Mor Ephrem.  An early church father.  I think."  When they ask "What's a church father?",  flip the Scrabble board and scream, "I WIN," as tiles rain from the sky.

Ah ha!  Just used 'nous' in a scrabble game, and was immediately challenged!

Opponent:  "Not so fast.  What's a 'nous'?"

Me: "Well, for most people, it's the intellect.  However, in my case, it's a thing with which to hang myself."

He dropped the challenge.

New tenants moved in upstairs so I was forced relinquish direct access to the modem/router (because they have some online business or something and otherwise the ethernet cable would have to run all through their apartment).

Wifi reception is so terrible now that it takes me 20 minutes to push out a post. It's like I've gone back a decade.

I used to have a Finnish neighbor, and that's inspired how I picture the Finns here — very tall, muscle-bound, sleeve tattooed and vaguely angry.

In another thread recently,  the assertion was made that the Antiochians are "sulkers."  But I put it to you another way.  At this time of year, with the World Series just around the corner, is it not more appropriate to accuse them of being lollygaggers?  (Warning:  There is some profanity at the end of this clip.)
