Oh don't be silly.  Everyone knows that honkies didn't do anything for the world (the vast majority of modern technology being excepted).  All they did was enslave people and colonize their countries.  That's what my teachers told me and I'm standing by it!
Hyperdox Herman needs to weigh in on this.

How stressful can saying "Yes dear, that is an excellent choice," be?
Getting a reception venue that everyone will like and hiring catering, DJs, and other staff is a pain! lol. I'm doing half the planning

Is she still RC?
Yea, but we are having an Orthodox wedding, which she is perfectly fine with. That was the only thing related to the wedding I requested, and she was fine with it, thankfully. It'll just be funny as me and my best man will probably be the only Orthodox people in the wedding (other than te priest). lol

Dear lord... why did you remind us of that?
Achronos is the Lord?  No wonder he's got a certain razzamatazz about his replies.
No, no, of course not. I'm just trying to break all 10+ commandments from the OT each week, so I had to get my "Lord's name in vain" one in. Btw, those nasty PMs you've been sending me must stop! They will not be tolerated!*


*(Gabriel has not been sending me nasty PMs, I just needed to do the "bearing false witness" commandment for the week)

I thank God for the opportunity.  :)

So I'm officially fluent in 4 languages (Norwegian, English, Icelandic, and Spanish) and semi-fluent in German and Dutch.

Trying to figure what language to learn next, maybe Arabic or Russian?

There's always Navajo, which is mutually intelligible with other Western Apache languages.  Or Romanian, which will give you a chance to read some of their most illumined Holy Fathers, who I am sure Augustin can provide you with links to the works of.  Or Blackfoot, and help to keep a very endangered language alive.  Or there's Aragonese and Leonese.  Or Irish.

I have a feeling I couldn't find anyone to communicate with in Navajo or Blackfoot. lol

Is Irish the same language as Celtic? Because that sounds interesting.

There is no one Cletic language, it's a family of languages. The Celtic peoples living today speak either Irish (sometimes called Gaelic), Welsh, Breton, Manx, Cornish (both nearly dead), or Scots Gaelic (also nearly dead). The Scots spoken in the Lowland is Germanic and its debated whether it's really a separate language at all and not just a dialectic of English.

Personally I'd learn Hebrew or Koine. As a Rabbi once said, "Reading the Scriptures in translation is like kissing your bride through the veil."

Or a Southeast Asian language because it's such a boon to the resume in some parts of the country.

Thai would be good, or Laotian, so that you can understood the Souphanousinphones when they start yelling at each other.
