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

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

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.

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...  Cheesy

 Angry Angry Angry


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.  Tongue

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

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?

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?

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.

Met probably one of the few cassock-ed Roman priests in the Bronx today as I was walking around campus before move-in. Talked to him for about half an hour and then he gave me a ride to the Bronx zoo!  Tongue Another contact in New York, Deo gratias!

You're here and you didn't tell me?!  Shocked
I don't move in until Sunday (why do Catholic universities always schedule things on Sundays?) and I'm showing my parents around until then.  Tongue

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.  Tongue

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.

I can still post the tutorial for these here... Wink



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.

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. Tongue

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.

No, colored saliva is NOT normal.

It's only within the first hour after smoking.
