Should I send you a fountain pen so you can cross out that almost? ;)

I tried to use one before, but I could not.

sigh.

left handed? 

Fountain pens are a hobby-obsession of mine....so i like sharing them with others.

A left hander can easily use a fountain pen. I can.

Waiting for that post still . . .

Good for Halloween along with a witch costume.

Is lace only for Halloween?

I'm thinking about making a big binder of different akathists... the amount of ink toner required gives me some pause but I think this would be a cool project.
only on oc.net...  :D

 >:( >:( >:(


I will pray for you, "TheTrisagion"

Not to toot my own horn too much, but I do have some nice-looking cursive so maybe I will write it out instead (anyone willing to donate a nice fountain pen for this worthy cause is welcome to do so)
At least someone will be.  :P

I wasn't hatin', I was merely observing that such a comment would not typically be found at most corners of the globe.  ;)

There's a wonderful solution, a fountain pen as easy to use as a ballpoint, the Pilot Varsity disposable. I highly recommend.

It's been answered a number of times by more than a few people. People just don't like the answers. And are usually too new to know much about odox, this site, much less me.

Speaking of which, where do you live exactly?

More obfuscation. I, for one, would like the answer. From you, not someone else. And I am certainly not "too new to know much about odox". What are you afraid of?

Not pointing out how others make ridiculous assumptions about others when they don't like what they post.

And getting bitten by a spider when one is on my neck. Nearly happened yesterday.

Posting a straight answer would have been faster, simpler, and courageous. Your refusal to do so shows you're afraid of something. As for the near-miss with the spider, what does that have to do with answering the question?

My question wasn't where Tri lives, and you know it. My question is the same as Tri's: whether you are odox or not. I'm sure he'd like you to answer it, too.

No need to Google to find out my religious affiliation, a look under my username will tell you. OTOH, what are you? "Sola Gratia" and "outside" tell us nothing meaningful.

I have no idea where Tri lives, so I can't answer "your" question. OTOH, Tri and I have asked a simple question of you, which you refuse to answer.

Those nails look more like spider webs than black lace. Are they more for people involved in the goth look?

BTW, Is Halloween popular in the UK or is it only a USA thing?

I would not be surprised if JoAnn's had some kind of similar fingernails for Halloween. They are getting in more merchandise every year.

Spider webs would look like this:



Halloween has always been popular in the UK, just not so much in the outwardly obvious ways. Few pumpkins, little trick-or-treating. There's plenty of the horror movie element, as well as dress-up parties (mostly for adults), but with some luck you can see some old Celtic New Year customs kept, from bonfires to dumb suppers.

Yeah, I don't know why Catholic universities do that.  Maybe it ensures that the students are awake enough to get to church at some point.  :P

It's been a while since we had a new thread on one of our pet topics at oc.net. Let's brainstorm a bit and see what we can come up with. Some ideas we could try:

Bagels: Bland Breakfast Food or Jewish Conspiracy?
Breaking News: Pope Francis Issues Considered Opinion on Ice Cream
From Smells and Bells to Pews and Brews (The Hipster Takeover)

It's been a while since we had a new thread on one of our pet topics at oc.net. Let's brainstorm a bit and see what we can come up with. Some ideas we could try:

Bagels: Bland Breakfast Food or Jewish Conspiracy?

Just brilliant. :laugh:

Breaking News: Pope Francis Issues Considered Opinion on Ex-Catholic Gay Hipsters Using Birth Control at Ecumenical Jewish Ice Cream Socials for Orthodox Triumphaholics. Also masturbation and ladypriests, and possibly rape and the masons.

There. Should last for a few pages. Can't have thread drift if all the bases are covered.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

He's such a great Pope!

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

I can still post the tutorial for these here... ;)



Good for Halloween along with a witch costume.

Is lace only for Halloween?

Those nails look more like spider webs than black lace. Are they more for people involved in the goth look?

BTW, Is Halloween popular in the UK or is it only a USA thing?

I would not be surprised if JoAnn's had some kind of similar fingernails for Halloween. They are getting in more merchandise every year.

Spider webs would look like this:



Halloween has always been popular in the UK, just not so much in the outwardly obvious ways. Few pumpkins, little trick-or-treating. There's plenty of the horror movie element, as well as dress-up parties (mostly for adults), but with some luck you can see some old Celtic New Year customs kept, from bonfires to dumb suppers.

Actually, I like those spider web nails much better than the black lace.
There is more light. When I was taking art classes, the professor emphasized the important role that light plays in compositions. This is especially true in advertising. Too much darkness or color can confuse the reader and make the message less clear.
Glory to Jesus Christ!
Glory to Him forever!

We stayed on Market street(technically on Denison Parkway, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuttttttt yeah) We just went to Seneca Lake, but did the entire lake in a day. but we had to pass up some wineries that we didnt want to go to.

Awesome! I love Market Street. Keuka is my favorite Finger Lake, but I haven't been to Seneca in a long time. The entire lake in a day is impressive- it's not small. :P

Well, this isn't good. Is it normal for my saliva to be brownish-yellow? Is it a result of cigar smoking? I didn't think one of those little Punch cigarillos a day would/could have such an affect. Perhaps cessation from smoking would be a good idea.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.

No, colored saliva is NOT normal.

No, colored saliva is NOT normal.

It's only within the first hour after smoking.

And what does that tell you?
