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 . . .

Beware of getting scabies mites from fountain pens.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

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.  ;)
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

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.

Use google, use this domain, find your answers again and again.

I'll pray for you all tonight after kissing an icon and lighting a candle.

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

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!  :P Another contact in New York, Deo gratias!

You're here and you didn't tell me?!  :o
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.  :P

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

And you didn't want to introduce your parents to a swarthy gentleman from the internet?

From Smells and Bells to Pews and Brews (The Hipster Takeover)
Will There Be Gay People in the Church Triumphant?

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!   
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

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.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

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.

No, colored saliva is NOT normal.

It's only within the first hour after smoking.
