Did your sponsors get warned in advance?

My Baptism ended up passing muster. And my sponsor in way took shine to me cause of it. He was involved in prison ministry and had adopted more than a few kids with very troubled backgrounds. So the fact I was above ground, sober, and not beating the tar out of someone made me a success.

During my time as a catechumen I only got into one physical altercation, so again not so bad.



and since being received? have you kept up the good record?

I tried not murdering someome tonight for nearly killing someone with their car. Progress, not perfection as they say in one of the cults I linger about.

I guess more heartbreaking to members of this forum the motorist did manage to blow by me and hit the fawn trying to cross the road. The reason I had stopped in the in climate weather.

Too bad it wasn't a buck. It would've brought some pleasure to me to see the guy in an ambulance.

So James, what's next? If you grow into a real boy, you might have enough room to get the Rudder etched into your body.

Ever read Kafka's In the Penal Colony?

I'd go with Salvonic on the other arm.  Then Syriac across the chest.  Maybe Latin on the upper back.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I'm scared to ask what this new tattoo is supposed to prevent him from doing.
Maybe it is what will happen that we can look at.

How many yiayias and other actual Greeks will meet him and slap him upside the head for taking it so lightly, the Prayer?

They won't. If there is one tired and old cliche that I've yet to see, it's the tired and old cliched odox woman who knows no boundaries.

One woman came close to this description at one parish I attended. Most converts let her bully them and the Priest would intervene. The first time she came at me with that nonsense I made it clear in a glance this would go nowhere and I wasn't her Balkan forever adolescent alcoholic to berate.

After that is was just overly zealous hugs and kisses.

This odox trope is some apology for patriarchy so the women feel vested as it were.

In my ecclesiastical travels, I've only come across one woman who fit the internet description of a "yiayia".  She was an old Russian lady who berated me on Pascha for using the light of my cellphone to help me walk in a packed and pewless church shortly before midnight without trampling upon babies or the feet of the scantily clad Georgian women who showed up just to hear the troparion and then go clubbing.  By far, most Orthodox "old people" are either very nice or mind their own business.

Strange. Every one of the parishes I've spent years at, Greek and Russian alike, has had them. Almost all are indeed lovely ladies, but they're not shy about setting people straight when the need arises.

But what would I know.

When I went to the Joy of All Who Sorrow and snapped a picture of St. John's holy body before leaving some old lady yelled at me. But apart from that, that's the only "yaiyai" experience I've encountered, and my home parish is full of old people. Most of them are either really loving and ecstatic at the fact that a young person is even attending at all, and others are just silent and mind their own business.

I read this as a positive confession. It's kind of a step 5 fail, though.

Some commercials are far from crap, though. Like this one.

People with sense use it, or should. Any other player I've used was, by comparison, a total resource hog.

Have you ever been homesick to a place you couldn't possibly call home, but somehow feels more so than you actual home?

or am I just rambling...

Sleep?

Not enough.

Have you ever been homesick to a place you couldn't possibly call home, but somehow feels more so than you actual home?

Yes.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Yes, but then I got married. Cure for all that.

Ha. funny thing is that I am actually homesick to my wife's home country. so maybe it worked the other way around for me... instead of curing it, it did cause it... hmmm stuff to think about.

I thought I'd go through my Ancient Faith podcast library again over Lent. Had to reconsider the idea when I ran it through Winamp and found out it's 533 hours long. :o I may have overdone it with the following...

Winamp? People still use it? I thought it would be long dead by now.
Does it still whip the llamas' er... butt?
God bless!

People with sense use it, or should. Any other player I've used was, by comparison, a total resource hog.

Nope. :P It doesn't come with useless add-ons, either. The first non-AOL version is due for release later this year. ;)

Tonight, my first Greek Salutations:

Damn, girl, you wanna be my πρεσβυτέρα? 

Oh, wait, no, no, no.  I'm sorry.  I'm married.


Anyway, besides the lust and the organ music drowing out the choir, not bad.

Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

When they re-launched the forum in October 2002 I failed to re-register on the first day (10.3.02), and didn't do so until the next day (10.4.02). Because of this delay I lost my chance to make the first page of the 'Members' section as shown according to date joined. I am not an original, first-day member! I am a lowly 10-4er. :( I have long lived with this shame, looking to and fro, wondering who was whispering cruel jokes as I passed, who treated me poorly because they knew I was vulnerable to abuse, who snickered with their friends when I dared to post--and indeed, I wondered, and still do, who it is that will some day ban me from the forum (admittedly a fitting end to a lazy new-comer like myself.) I should just crawl back in my hole!

Um

Hmm

Anyway

Here, this will brighten your day. Afterwards download it and put it on repeat.

Ok. :)
