This place is dead tonight. Everyone praying their 3 hour long nightly prayer rule or something? Lord be with you, pious hearts!

I haven't started yet...   Cry

I got mine in, just barely, on the 'correct day.' Apparently that is important to me. I have to pray evening prayers, for example, on the evening intended, and not for instance starting at 12:10am, because then it'd be on the wrong day or at the wrong time. Such silly nitpicks bother me, yet entirely ignoring a prayer I had intended to pray, but which isn't part of the daily practice, well I'm fine with that. Somehow I imagine God would prefer things the other way around.  Undecided police

Perhaps this is how many go about things, and perhaps it is proper. I usually just go from midnight to midnight these days though. But then I am on the wrong calendar, so is it really any worse to be on the wrong clock?  Tongue. All truly holy Christians live according to Athos time anyway!

A drop of 'faith in humanity' fell into my bucket this morning.
Upon leaving my apartment I found a note taped to my door.


Hello,

My name is Steve, I moved in upstairs recently. I apologize if noise was being made last night. If I am ever being too loud, please don't hesitate to let me know via text. I would like to be a good, quiet neighbor but not sure how loud things are.
Steve.

A motorist was driving along the freeway late at night. There were no other cars about, so he put his foot down and was doing 'km/h when he was pulled over by a traffic cop.

The cop got off his bike, strolled across and said: "Look sir, this is the end of my shift for the day and I just want to get home for supper. I don't want to do all the paperwork involved in arresting you, so if you can give me just one good excuse for speeding I'll forget about it."

"Certainly, officer," said the motorist. "You see, last week my wife ran off with a traffic cop and when I saw your blue light in my rear-view mirror I thought for one dreadful moment you were trying to catch me to give her back."

The cop put away his note-book and said: "Have a safe drive home."

A motorist was driving along the freeway late at night. There were no other cars about, so he put his foot down and was doing 'km/h when he was pulled over by a traffic cop.

The cop got off his bike, strolled across and said: "Look sir, this is the end of my shift for the day and I just want to get home for supper. I don't want to do all the paperwork involved in arresting you, so if you can give me just one good excuse for speeding I'll forget about it."

"Certainly, officer," said the motorist. "You see, last week my wife ran off with a traffic cop and when I saw your blue light in my rear-view mirror I thought for one dreadful moment you were trying to catch me to give her back."

The cop put away his note-book and said: "Have a safe drive home."



Is this a Canadian joke? Do Canadians call highways freeways? I'm stuck on the "km/h".

Girl cant tell a multi-national joke...

Its actually South African...

South Africa has cops?

One would assume SA has cops -- it's too far south for  Copts, anyway...

But oftentimes the cops in South Africa are black.
