So my Russian professor requires 12 hours of Russian cultural activity outside the classroom. And apparently going to Orthodox services counts. (Never mind that my parish is Antiochian and mostly converts).

Taking advantage of my religion for college credit, wooooohooo!

Ask if drinking vodka till you are blind drunk or burning your girlfriend's passport so she can't leave the country counts as well.

I think the participation in the above in Russia is a slightly higher than participating in a service at a parish.

Makes me wonder if identify one's home culture as Russian would count.

I'd be rolling in that credit!

The Anglican Low Churchman's Proper View of Maniples

"Ritualists may be evil, but they are cunning. While some pieces of ritualist paraphernalia have an obvious function, others have no clear use or purpose, so that the loyal churchman must resort to guesswork to determine their part in the ritualist masterplan. Such items include the “maniple,” illustrated above. Barely visible underneath the priest’s other vestments, this decorated band of cloth is held in high esteem by the ritualists, who believe its presence to be crucial in the performance of their mystical incantations.

The maniple’s name derives from the Latin word mane, meaning “early in the morning.” The ritualists claim that it is a stylized handkerchief, derived from the cloths that the priests of the early church would use to wipe their faces. This is clearly a lie, since ritualists in fact never use their maniples for this purpose. Various explanations have been ventured as to the true purpose of the maniple: does its elaborate embroidery contain coded messages from the ritualist’s true masters at the Vatican, or does it conceal a loop of piano wire that the priest can use to garrotte an adversary?"

It comes from manus ("hand"), not mane - manipulus means "a handful" or "sheaf"...

17 is one of my favorite prime numbers.  As a board game fan it offers little, certainly; there are no 17-sided dice.  Except in the computer world, of course, where even such bizarre things are possible.  Like an orchid-hazelnut hybrid.  Can you even imagine, since there are already twice as many orchids as there are birds?   Why do none of those birds seem to have feathers that are mauve,by the way?  Where does such a color even come from?  Probably from the same place that single socks disappear into, right?  And how many of those have you experienced?  If 17, I'd not be surprised.  After all, it's one of my favorite prime numbers.

Hmm, let's see if it can make this a little less annoyed sounding...

Some people consider Black Friday the beginning of the Christmas season. Others say it is the beginning of the fast. But as an American cultural whatever those things do not loom as large as another phenomenon: being told, asked, pleaded with, and/or bullied to "put the Christ back in Christmas". Tonight my Christmas season began.

I wish I was kidding, but I'm not.  I have these circular spots of dry skin on my hands: no amount of any sort of moisturizer will heal them, even if the rest of my hands is normal, and the dry spots are breaking open, bleeding from time to time.  I decided to post it here hoping that bragging about stigmata would make it go away just in case it was a sign of my own holiness.

I have to check google. I hope to get a snow day. I think in Cincinnati that means if a flake manages to last longer than 10 seconds on the ground before melting.

If I do, I am going to watch that .gif all day.

You and Shiny can't have every thread, norm. Fr. George has a post goal to hit and I'm trying to do my part!

How's the weather down there, by the way?

I have to check google. I hope to get a snow day. I think in Cincinnati that means if a flake manages to last longer than 10 seconds on the ground before melting.

If I do, I am going to watch that .gif all day.

Isn't not like I am transgendered or gender dysmorphic or anything. I just swear that .gif is simply who I think I was born to be.

I have no idea who it is. I can't wait to find out. She is probably a Disney / Nickelodeon product. I do have some 14 year old girl trapped inside of me somewhere. And she isn't scared, she is just really vivacious.

And like way cute.

Snow days are awesome so I'll light a candle for you. I have one with three tiers called "Smell My Nuts" because the scents are hazelnut and the like. It was a gift. I hope that counts.

We're getting freezing rain.

Northeast of I-71 is supposed to the worst, so it makes sense you have bad weather. I am sure I will be able to go to work, which makes this very late.

The one time they did shut down due to weather I showed up and worked without know it had been.

The backs of my hands...the wounds have to start somewhere, I guess.  

I've watched many seasons of Monsters Inside Me (parasites) and Dr. G: Medical Examiner (celebrity coroner extraordinaire), so I strongly believe that I am something of an expert in this area. My diagnosis is indeterminate, and I would like to refer you to your PCP for further evaluation. Please let us know what happens!

Oh! Consider it! And watch this to get the reference or this friendship is over.

I watched it, so let's be friends.  :P

I never saw that movie, I ought to track it down and watch it.  

 :o

Consider that your homework. You can rent it on Amazon for $2.99. I'll send you some quarters.

That is bizarre. I was definitely expecting palms. Are they relatively located in the same place?

That is a bummer! I hope you got paid at least.

Evidently, using Madiba to refer to Mandela is the hip thing.

Noah yelled it out in a strange moment after his post-game interview.

Goofs.

Also apparently available on Netflix for streaming to TV, or at least that's what the website indicates...  Been a while since I watched that one...
