Netflix is too good. Why would anyone leave the house if they have it?  Huh  Smiley

This weekend was both good and a headache (family visited, which is usually either good/bad or bad/bad. Glad it was the former). They insisted on buying us more furniture, and after saying "No thanks" 3921 times, we caved and spent a lot of the weekend assembling furniture.

My mother and sister came with Mr. Ismi and I to DL this Sunday.  Shocked I think my sister (an atheist) was going to off herself during the memorial service. She turned to me and said, "THERE'S MORE?!" My mother liked it and crossed herself every time everyone else did, but I remembered quickly to give her the book with the DL in English so that she could see the Creed and realize that it was different. I didn't want an "AND THE SON" moment happening. Haha.

They wanted to get the antidoron but were too scared so they just left the church really quickly, prompting the people around us to say, "Aren't they coming to coffee hour?!"

I didn't know if it was okay for me to ask Father for a few pieces for them. Probably was but I didn't.

Kind of looking forward to going back to a normal work week, but this week isn't going to be exactly normal either...


How was everyone's weekend?

High of 97F -> 62F in 48 hours.

IsmiLiora, sounds like you had... an interesting weekend! Love the "There's more?" thing, lol. It's always cool to observe non-Orthodox family members in Orthodox contexts...

My weekend... I forced my priest, on his birthday, to drive out to pick me up at 7am and take me to church. I got no homework done. I got no reading done. And I ate too much junk stuff. It was great!  Grin

I love how "let us complete our prayer to the Lord" is nowhere near the end of the liturgy -- messes with the minds of visitors every time.

Biro -- it just started raining here, too! As long as it's not a hurricane, it's nice to just sit on the couch with a good book sometimes. Very cozy.

Orthonorm -- your answer was very anti-climactic, but I like the 62F, so if we could have that here in the South, I would greatly appreciate it.

Asteriktos -- Sounds like every weekend I had in college! (And yes, my pastor had to drive me to church a few times too, so I'm talking about all of it.) I still got a degree and did quite well, so as long as you bounce back, some procrastination can be fun. Hope you are working right now, though! Wink Writing papers at 5 AM on Monday was the worst part of it.

Akimori Makoto - YES, she heard that part because Father said that in English, and she thought it was over. I told her that his homilies were only 2 hours long and she almost passed out. She believed me for a second. Grin

What part of the South are you in? Here in Memphis we had a high of 74, and it's currently 64 right now as I'm typing this post.

Eh, I'm kind of straddling the border between north and south. Definitely a few hours south of the Mason Dixon, but it's culturally a mix because a lot of Northern transplants live here.

Yes, I am being deliberately vague. Smiley

It was in the mid 80s, but the humidity is the WORST! I have been sweating profusely this entire weekend. Putting a desk together + sweating + no central air = lovely Ismi. But after the rain, the weather is now back to the mid 70s. Whew.

How is the humidity over there?

Humidity is not bad at all down here.  It rained a lot yesterday so that cooled everything off, and today was very windy.  It's actually beginning to feel like Fall (or Autumn) and we're loving it!  Cool

I was making joke about Atlanta, not really guessing.  I was there in 1992ish and remember all the New York license plates.  I have a pretty good guess where you area at.

Just hope it's not going to rain tomorrow when I help my friend move (everyone is moving nowadays). I think I'm too excited about going to Ikea...

I have a headache.

Here, on this esteemed forum, I make a fool of myself defending Ukraine and quibbling over the use of "the" before it.  I am a Ukrainian patriot.

On Facebook, I speak up against the KP, and am sticking up for world Orthodoxy versus strictly Ukrainian.  I am a Ukrainian traitor.

I don't know what I am, other than in tears.

It doesn't snow here. Just sun, sun, sun and a corresponding amount of surfers. Truly hell on earth.

LOL. I actually normally like hot weather, but it's been so muggy here for the past three months that I can't stand it anymore!

Don't like snow, though. I will come visit you and bask in the sun and frolic with the surfers in a few months.  Sound good?

It is already starting to warm up here.

If by "frolic with the surfers", you mean "assassinate the surfers", then yes, by all means.

I like snow. I was glad when my father used to tell me to go outside and shovel at 4:00 in the morning.  Grin
Can I adopt you?

Thanks, but I think my Mom would say no.   Wink

Now don't get hasty. He didn't say his price, yet. Cheesy

If we're talking about shoveling sidewalks here, that usually runs about $5. Wink

I went for a half a carton of generic menthols. Mom pulled the wool over their eyes.

On Weather:

Hate summer, especially our summer.

Will take 60s and gray for a while over 90s and bright.

Ideally it would be 60 and bright.

Never found a winter I would exchange for a summer here.

My parents would have offered to adopt you, straight up. My sister was so lazy that I usually did the shoveling. Me, with my chronic fatigue. Needless to say, I took twice as long to do it.

75 is my ideal temp. I like the mid-80s, but not if it's too humid. The humidity kills me. My friend and I have a plot to convince our families to move West in a few years. We want to live in Arizona, New Mexico, or Nevada and enjoy the desert and dry heat.

Why are you, AM, and I just responding back and forth and not in chat?

Her Majesty's Attorney General (my employer) does not approve of me chatting or otherwise social-networking.

I've just noticed my posting ratio goes up during bouts of legal research.

You two should be in the chat, though!

I am working on a long file. May be able to go in for a minute, as a client is sending more work at midnight. WHY IS THIS MY LIFE.

Okay, hold on. I can go in for half an hour. See you there if anyone else will be in...

Does anyone else get somewhat depressed when you see an Orthodox website that hasn't been updated in a long time (e.g. you go to a section labeled "calendar" and it's for 2009)? Or when you call a parish in November and the person on the answering machine/voicemail greets you with an explanation of when their Paschal services are? I mean, seriously, we spend lots of time and money on comparatively trivial stuff, but ignore things that would be simple and cheap (or even free) to take care of...

Every parish should have someone specifically appointed to trouble shoot this kind of stuff and to come up with ways to improve the missionary and evangelistic activity of the parish.

Yah. I've eaten many different kinds of birds, and I've eaten alligator. Not a whole lot of difference.

Me, too. What makes me a little more sad is if it is a church that is nearby, and I know that people still go there, because I drive past sometimes, and when I look up their website and click on 'News'... they haven't put anything since a banquet in 2008!  Huh Someone in the office? Hello? Smiley

I just had gator last week. Kind of rubbery, but not too bad. It was fried, but then again, I had fried frogs legs once and wanted to vomit. No, thank you.

So, I went to Ikea today for the first time in probably 10 years. (Crazy that I was a hormonal teenager 10 years ago, not age 6 or 7 or anything.) I went crazy and purchased a lot of stuff at the food market, since we didn't have much time to stop for Lingonberry jam and Swedish meatballs, my fav. I have missed out on the frozen food aisles and the foodstuffs in general. I don't remember seeing THAT much of a selection.

Oh yeah, and I lifted lots of heavy furniture, too. But the jam made it all worth it.
