Orthonorm - HA! I could make those Soviet jokes all day long.

CBGardner, you obviously misunderstand (EDIT: underestimate! I cannot think coherently...ever.) my laziness. I am going to download Winamp right now.

I'd hazard a guess that it was for similar reasons as Paul McCartney.

Being married six hundred times and refusing to age gracefully?
This will be his third marriage, actually. The first ended when his beloved wife of over twenty five years died from cancer. The second ended in divorce.

I really can't blame a man for not wanting to spend the end years of his life alone. My Grandmother is 92, and more than anything she is lonely.

Paul McCartney had a wonderful friend, lover, and companion in his first wife. He was used to having someone to rely on. I don't think it wrong or scandalous for him to seek that out. He has known his current fiance for over four years. Hardly an "overnight" romance.

Furthermore, I think it says a lot that after the bitter divorce he had with his second wife, he still was open enough to the possibility of finding love again. I really think it is a beautiful thing.

So hold your tongue; it is easy at your young age to say "I will only marry once."

You don't know the hand of cards life will deal you.

It's not quite fair to assume I am youthful and idealistic and untouched by loneliness, but you're right that I have spoken unkindly and out of line.

We are getting a lot of turtles where I live. A lot. Nowadays, I see them all the time.

What does it mean?

Are we under invasion?

Just to be clear; I never assumed you were untouched by loneliness, or that you haven't experienced heartache. All I said was that since you are young, you may have an ideal that you will only get married once, but you don't know where life may take you.

At any rate, no harm, no foul. :)

In Thy kingdom remember us, O Lord, when Thou comest in Thy kingdom.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for your reward is great in heaven.

Remember us, O Lord, when Thou comest in Thy kingdom.

Remember us, O Master, when Thou comest in Thy kingdom.

Remember us, O Holy One, when Thou comest in Thy kingdom.

Wow, how long did it take to code THAT?

Love the Beatitudes!


I was just randomly wondering, why aren't there more females posting on the board? I'm not being a Feminazi, I'm just aggressively suggesting that we should close membership until the number of active female members catches up to the active male members. :police:

Okay, well, I can make some assumptions about gender.


For instance, one of my friends told me that I was the only woman alive who did not get all weak-kneed at the sight of Curtis Stone. Therefore, you, with your raging hatred of Curtis Stone, must be a man. 


Don't worry, my guesses are quote logical.  8)

There are quite a few female members. However, they seem to know better than to waste time posting polemics. :)

Ozgeorge has a good point about polemics...even in my every day life, the men tend to really go at it. Even though my female friends and I disagree on some points (sometimes heatedly), we just say, "Oh honey, we'll just have to agree to disagree," end the conversation amicably, walk away, and pray for the other one's soul with an undying fervor.

It's 3:45 in the morning, what am I still doing up...? Must be the potent blend of OC.net, diet sunkist, and Dragon Quest VI.  :p

It's 5:50am, I'm heading to bed. Like my grandma always said: "Early to bed, early to rise..."  ...wait, wut?  Goodnight, sweet forum.

Keep up with the threads, you mean sex. And mix that with the adage about when one assumes, then we might have be able to have a "civil union" in Maine.

^ I actually remember that thread! I use them interchangeably, partly to make feminists mad and partly because I keep forgetting which one is used for which. You're right, you can be one sex and identify as another gender.

Asteriktos, how are you playing Dragon Quest AND Surfing Oc.net at the same time? TALENT!

Nah, not talent, just technology. They released Dragon Quest VI for the Nintendo DS, so last night after every few battles I'd see if there were any new posts.  :-X ;D

For YEARS, I have been looking for this computer game that I played in my math class about 13 years ago. I JUST found it for $0.75 and one-clicked it on Amazon.com. (It's called "Math in the Real World," and it deals with a rock band on tour -- AWESOME math computer game for its time.)

I am such a loser. I cannot believe that I didn't even hesitate to buy the game! But I CANNOT wait to get it in the mail and relive the memories. I am sure that my childhood friends and relatives will be asking for copies once they find out that I have it...

Thought I'd share one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books, Salvation On Sand Mountain by Dennis Covington (and this is not fiction):

"She'd swore she'd never handle rattlesnakes in July again. She'd been bit the previous two Julys. 'I decided I'd just handle fire and drink strychnine that night,' she said. Good idea, I thought. It always pays to be on the safe side."

This castle is the place where the Orthodox monk Otrepev beseeched the Wiśniowiecki clan to prepare an attack on Moscow.(c.1600) By this castle is the church in which Peter Mohyla's sister, Raina (Regina) Mohylanka prayed. Raina Mohylanka lived there at the time of the defeat of Moscow. The Romanian and Moldavan Orthodox churches have postulated her canonisation.  ;D ;D ;D Praise be to Romania!!!

Post #18,000 for me.  I figured I'd put it in a "special place."

I'm glad that someone has finally passed me for forum's top poster (by total posts).  I think it happened a week ago.  Isa - Many years!

Btw: I'm shocked that this thread fell to the second page in Other Topics.  Shameful!

House Of Balloons
Adam was walking around the Garden of Eden feeling very lonely, so God asked Adam, "What is wrong with you?" Adam said he didn't have anyone to talk to. God said he was going to give him a companion and she would be called "woman."

God said, "This person will cook for you and wash your clothes, she will always agree with every decision you make. She will bear your children and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them. She will not nag you, and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you've had a disagreement. She will never have a headache, and will freely give love and compassion whenever needed."

Adam asked God, "What will this woman cost?"

God said, "An arm and a leg."

Adam said, "What can I get for just a rib?"

On the calendar page for my parish's website, they squished together some of the type for today's date, so that instead of reading, "Liturgy," followed by "Coffee Hour & Dance," (the latter I think referred to the children's dance practice group), it read: "Dance Liturgy."  :eek:  :D If you took a second look at it, you could figure out what it really meant. I almost fell off my chair the first time I read it, though.  ;)
