I was just thinking (yes I know that's very dangerous) how about the title
Archbishop of port, all left hand passing beverages and custodian of the cheese board.  Just a thought.

Well, it appears that I am behind in registering my votes!

vai for LTB, Red Deacon, and for Nektarios

Additionally, I think my enthusiastic friend FatGreek means phimi, not 'femme', which made me wonder initially just what out mutual seminarian friend was disclosing....

Speaking of phimoi, I would like to comment that twice now I, as Patriarch of Beer, have wandered into a room while some (all of legal drinking age) were enjoying my thronal beverage.

Imagine my surprise when no one in the room greeted me with my phimi, although one colorful Deacon did perform an Eis polla. As I was about to beat one person in the room with my staff, it was brought to my attention that by phimi does not yet exist.

Therefore, I think we should work on it. And, I insist that it be noted I have potatoes... ;)

This post was attempted literally 30 seconds before the board went down Mon eve:

From the Bazaar,
To the Members of the Holy Synod of Spirits

Peace, in the name of the Great Distiller, who was presented into the Tavern!

So the voting tally for LTB's application:
+GIC: yes
+GEORGE: yes
+SERB1389: yes
+CHRIS: yes
+SS99: yes

And, in a semi-partial-somewhat-kinda-formal request, Red Deacon is petitioning for election to the Archbishopric of Port.

I will enter a yes vote for myself.

So the voting tally for Red Deacon's application:

+GEORGE: yes
+CHRIS: yes
non-entered:
+GIC
+SERB1389
+SS99

As stated earlier, the other elected members will have to wait for the Synod to deliberate who/how many more voting members there shall be on the Holy Synod.

From the Bazaar,

To the members of the Holy Synod of Spirits, especially +SERB1389,

Let us rejoice in The Great Distiller Who is Presented into the Tavern!

In a synodal letter dealing with the deposition of the Former Archbishop of Stoli, George, the Archbishop of Schlivo, Patriarch of All Vodka was placed under the protection of the Metropolitan of Metaxa and All Brandy.  To wit:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php?topic=7917.msg103423#msg103423

[quote author="The Bishop of Bourbon"]
By decree of the Holy Synod, on account of the recent unfortunate developments, the Autonomy of the Archbishopric of Stolichnaya and Patriarchate of All Vodka is hereby revoked and the Bishop of Schlivo is hereby made the Locum Tenens of the See of Stolichnaya and invested with the rights and privileges therein entailed and shall be commemorated as the Bishop of Schlivo and Archbishop of All Vodka, but shall recognize the Archbishop of Metaxa and Patriarch of All Brandy as his head and shall maintain obedience the Bishop of Bourbon, Supreme Pontiff of All Alcohol.
[/quote]

It should also be noted that the Title "Patriarch of All Similar-Clear Alchohols" is a very specific one: The Archbishop of Ouzo is Patriarch of all clear Alchohols similar to it; a very great responsibility indeed.  I believe this specific definition came about in a meeting of the Intoxicousa Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate sometime in the 17th Century; I may end up asking the Chartophylax to find the reference.

I hope that this is helpful in the process of growth and understanding between the members of this great and holy Synod.

May the Great Distiller bless us all.  In His service, I remain faithfully yours,

+GEORGE
Metropolitan of Metaxa and All Brandy, Patriarch of All Fruit-Based Alchohols, Ecumenical Patriarch
Chief Secretariat of the Holy Synod of Spirits

Actually (and this is a total aside from it being my Thronal Beverage) Metaxa is actually quite good for colds; brandies do a good job of warming the insides and clearing a bit of the congestion.

From the Bazaar,
to the Plentitude of the Faithful over the age of 21 in the US of A, and to all the faithful in the world abroad,
To the Holy Synod of Spirits, and its President, His Inebriatedness the Bishop of Bourbon and Supreme Pontiff,
To the reverened Distillery Metropolitans, Distribution Despotas, Pricing Presbyters, Imbibing Deacons,
Instructors and students at the Bartending Universities of the Holy Ecumenoi and the Patriarchate of All Fruit-Based Alchohols,

The Great Distiller is presented into the Tavern for our salvation!

In accordance with the ancient typikon of the Grand Taverna of the Great Distiller, and the practice of the Holy Synod of Spirits, in conjunction with the canons that guide the consumption of Alchohols everywhere, it is our duty as Chief Secretariat of the Holy Synod of Spirits to announce the ordinations of the servants of the Great Distiller listed below to the episcopacy, to the vacant sees listded, through the ancient custom of the laying on of drinking glasses (in hand) by the servants, the His Inebriatedness the Bishop of Bourbon, His All-Imbibedness the Metropolitan of Metaxa, and His All-Imbibedness the Metropolitan of Mead.

+LUCIFER THE BLACK (heretofore +LTB), Bishop of Stouts and All 40oz Malt Liquor,
With the honoraria due to his throne and position, including the titles: Rider of the 45 Colts, Bearer of the 10 Episcopal Rings, and Keeper of the Ecumenical Bling.

It is in the joy of the Great Distiller that we welcome the new Bishop of Stout and raise a glass of his episcopal drink, hoping that the Great Distiller shows mercy on his liver, and on the livers of us all.

The updated tally for the application of Red Deacon for the throne of Archbishop of Port is such:

+GIC: yes
+GEORGE: yes
+SERB1389 - uncast
+CHRIS: yes
+SS99 - uncast

A new matter is brought up to be discussed: the decision as to who will be given voting seats in the Synod of Spirits.  The Current list of voting members is above, and voting seats below, along with a list of the other thrones that are non-voting at the moment.

Voting Seats:
Bishop of Bourbon, President
Metropolitan of Metaxa, Chief Secretariat
Archbishop of Ouzo
Metropolitan of Mead
Archbishop of Schlivo
Archbishop of Rum (vacant see)
Archbishop of Gin (vacant see)

Non-Voting Seats
Archbishop of Absinthe
Archbishop of Tequila
Archbishop of Scotch
Archbishop of Port
Archbishop of Cordials
Archbishop of Stoli
Bishop of Stouts
Bishop of Oktoberfest

Now, as it would be impossible to grant all the above seats voting priviledge in the Synod, I propose two solutions:

1. Only the fully Autonomous and Semi-Autonomous sees will be represented; thus, the current voting members, plus the Archbishops of Absinthe and Tequila.

2. Whether or not 1 passes, appoint at least a locum tenens for the see of Gin, and possibly a different locum tenens for the see of Rum that is not a current voting member.

If the president of the Synod will accept them, I submit the above two proposals to the current voting members for discussion.

+SS99 votes yes and apologizes for the delay, as you can see it was only the Serbs who had not yet voted, that is because we both work off Serbian time (which is about 12 hours behind the rest of the known universe).

1. Only the fully Autonomous and Semi-Autonomous sees will be represented; thus, the current voting members, plus the Archbishops of Absinthe and Tequila.
Yes and yes.

Your Intoxicatedness:
You need not apologize for delay in response; your answers came in a timely fashion, and as a brotherhood of Bishops we all understand the time constraints put on each and all.

To All:
So the tally for Red Deacon is now updated to 4 yes', with only +SERB1389 needing to vote.

As per the second set of voting, on the two proposals, it is:
+GEORGE and +SS99: yes
All others, uncast.

I hope all have a wonderful day

The Red Deacon is a YES

The two proposals are YES and YES 

Isn't Rum a clear alcohol?  In which case I would find some way to accept this charge, knowing fully well the clear duty that will be put upon my ever to be humble person.

Having gone over the Synodal declarations of the past, and having been made aware of the cannonical adjustments concerning our long beloved drink of Vodka, I hereby relinquish my jurisdictional questioning and concede to the Locum Tenens +SS99 on eparchial rights. 

May you enjoy the purest and most intoxicating Vodka that the Great Distiller graces you with!!
Eis Polla Eti!!!!

P.S.  I will make sure to thrash the underling who forgot to find the correct encyclical for me!  Either that or i'll make him drink a lot, either way he's not gona feel that great in the morning.

The current status of the above proposals is such:

+GIC, +CHRIS: undecided.
Remember, the above proposals cannot pass without the President of the Synod at least assenting to their consideration.

Our Inebraitedness votes in the affirmative for all persons and measures currently before they synod; however, Our Inebriatedness would like to add that though only the fully Autonomous and semi-Autonomous sees have a right to a vote on the Synod, that by unanimous consent other hierarchs of lesser seas can be given such a posistion, and once granted cannot be revoked save for another unanimous vote (minus the person in question, of course).

As a reminder for +CHRIS, the proposals are the following:
