Among all the icons was that solitary profile picture of Jacob Bruckhardt, kind of funny.

I wish the Darkness was real.

Of course it is.

But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

It seems I'll work on the Olympic Games as an OFA. That's short for "someone important and his family's handyman" (which can be in a wide range from the Prince of Monaco to some sports chairman from Central Africa). It'll certainly be fun, but maybe I shouldn't have told the committee that I speak German in my interview, since I'll definitely work with some German speaker because of that. I do know German, but I have few actual practice so being supposed to conversate in the language for three weeks straight is a pretty horrifying idea. They will turn me into a Bratwurst! I also told them I'm Orthodox, however, so there's a chance they put me with some Eastern European tycoon since they want us to work for similar people.

I think that most Germans speak some English, so you should be fine.

They do, but these people will probably be expecting a German speaker to follow them. Well, it won't be the end of the world though, as long as I don't mess his agenda he'll have more things to worry about than my abilities.

Undoubtedly. Last week the mayor declared the city is in state of calamity, and I doubt violence against tourists can be anyhow prevented by the police during the games, one of the four areas in the city is in an extremely dangerous location also... Lord, have mercy.

Back in high school, I would frequently use LSD early in the morning. It would lead me to get twenty minutes late to the first class of the day, sit behind my desk and keep quiet, tripping and hoping no one would talk to me. Frankly, I was the worst teacher ever.

I see a significant amount of Russian in my Facebook feed, and I can't read a lick of it. The "auto-translate" feature is helpful but often a poor translation.

The following was contained in a post in my feed about a parishioner talking about her son

Quote
Вот удивил миша, так удивил! Даже меня, привыкшую к нему

FB auto-translated as:
Quote
What a (removed -ZZ)Misha, so surprised!
(emphasis mine) 

Google translate rendered:
Quote
That surprised Misha so surprised !

According the person who posted, she said she would translate as:
Quote
Misha surprised me so much!"

It left me in stitches imagining this women calling her son a (removed -ZZ).

Google Translate for Greek is similarly horrible.  I've come across so many articles titled something like "The Archbishop meets with his girlfriend", accompanied by a photo of a bishop with some portly old man. 
The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.

Actually, Mor's face shineth like the Sun.

Google Translate for Greek is similarly horrible.  I've come across so many articles titled something like "The Archbishop meets with his girlfriend", accompanied by a photo of a bishop with some portly old man.


Trying to find the cake photos again?

The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.

But has it ever called the Archbishop a (removed -ZZ)?

Hi Bob-

I sold Mor the DVD with director's commentary in both Greek and English, so he's covered.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Today we was in different city and there is one Church, there was little girl, and when the priest seen the girl he say are you baptized and she say no, then he say you cannot go forward in the church, this is the law.

He didn't let her enter the Church because she wasn't baptised? That's weird, I've heard about the non-baptised being actually led out of the nave after the dismissal of the catechumens but only that.

He said "forward in the church," not "enter the church," so I'm not convinced you have developed an accurate picture of what happened.

Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy
