Conan's prayer to Crom. Why doesn't the Hallmark store sell this on plaques and fridge magnets?

Sadly, it seems that our practical joke flew over most of our population's head. Unlike the Aussies, who apparently export all of their trash "beer" (read: Foster's), there are legions of Americans who actually drink Bud Light (why is beyond me).
My brother-in-law went to a pub in rural Ireland, and he said that almost everyone was drinking Budweiser.
Perhaps it was the 'other' Czech brewed Budweiser?  http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m3469/is_26_55/ai_n8592333/

No little gum freshens breath longer than Big Red.




So kiss a little longer, hold hands a little longer, hold tight a little longer; Longer with Big Red.
That Big Red freshness lasts right through it. Your fresh breath goes on and on while you chew it. Say goodbye a little longer; make it last a little longer. Give your breath long lasting freshness with Big Red.

What's Spring Break? ;) :(
There's no such thing as Spring Break for the workin' man.  :D  BTW, who's the man in your current avatar?
So, teachers don't work?  I mean, I won't pretend I haven't gotten that impression sometimes, but...

LOL!  I didn't mean to say or imply that at all.  I meant that teachers still sometimes go in to work, still have to get their lesson plans in order, they might meet with the principle or other admins; there's a whole host of things they have to do during spring break...

Haha. I decided that this spring break I really do need relax. I will be doing minimal school work.  :)
Minimal is the right word. When I say I've taken a holiday off, I really mean I've worked for less than an hour. As I've said before, many think teaching is a 9-3 job; it's actually an August-May job, followed by our May-August job, planning for next year.

Agreed. Then add to this the fact that many teachers teach summer school and/or night classes to provide themsleves with a better wage (I do both).

Now a word was secretly brought to me,
And my ear received a whisper of it.
In disquieting thoughts from the visions of the night,
When deep sleep falls on men,
(The Book of Job 4:12-13)

Today one should drink 40 glasses of wine for the martyrs of Sevastia.

Depends on who made the Ţuică (Romanian plum brandy).  I had three glasses of some not-so-good stuff once and thought my lungs were going to catch on fire, plus I lost all sense of taste for a few hours.  :D

I just bought some Serbian plumb brandy last week.  That stuff will tear your head off!

My home will be transferred to the newly-created Parish whose patron-Saint (St. Gregory Peradze) is also the patron-Saint of the Mission I attend in the city I study. That's strange.

LOL.  I remember my first taste, in Belgrade.  I first thought, "this isn't that strong." Then......

Signs you might be Russian Orthodox:

• On Wednesdays and Fridays you eat Japanese food.

• You’re used to skipping breakfast on Sundays.

• You can automatically subtract 13 days from today’s date.

• On your first encounter with long words, you pronounce them stressing the ‘next to the next to last’ syllable.

• You wonder why the Pope crosses himself backwards when you see him on TV.

• You wear comfortable shoes to church, because you know you’ll be standing a long, long time.

• To you, a ‘topless’ gal is one without a headscarf.

• You get great deals on Christmas trees and Easter candy.

• You spend time figuring out the best way to remove smoke stains from your ceiling.

• When you see a shopping-mall Santa, your first instinct is to hold out your hands to get his blessing.

How many Russian Orthodox does it take to change a light bulb?
None. Orthodoxy never changes, and, in addition to burning candles like the Roman Catholics, uses oil-burning lamps. ‘Electricity is for those Gregorian calendar-using, liberal ecumenist jurisdictions.’

Just got back from the oral surgeon. Blah. What an experience. I didn't even get the satisfaction of feeling good during the procedure. And now I have this stupid gauze in my mouth for the next day or so, and am stuck eating nothing but things like Jello and pudding. Ok, the pudding part isn't so bad.
