tooday i briefly checked a romanian orthodox website "razboi intru cuvant" ("war in the word" ) which i maybe do every 2 or 3 months. my god, i think its both funny and depressing. but, i don't think it represents more than a tiny number of hardcore activists. according to what i saw romania is gonna soon be taken over by a homosexual cabal. that's when it's not the jews doing it.
I've been meaning to ask you and Romaios. Is Romania all dark and mist-filled and home to werewolves and such like in the movies?
whats with the justice scales as your avatar?

you know I've tried every levi jeans, 505, 569, 513, 514, etc.

but I always was resistant to 501 because ya know "middle aged balding male" has sort of been attached to it for a long time with that stonewashed look.

but I think it may be the best fitting jean for me.

i just hate the way it feels

I should be doing something but I'm staring paralysed at my computer screen. Even typing seems tiresome.

I should probably translate some Greek to stay in shape but I don't know what to translate.

I really enjoyed some bits of St. John of Damascus' Sacra Parallela. There's plenty of topics in there to choose from. Also, it's quite straightforward Greek.

Isn't that one fragmentary? All-knowing TLG tells me it is.

There is no translation of anything by St. John Chrysostom in Dutch.
The fragment I liked from Sacra Parallela is actually from Chrysostom's In Eutropium. Beautiful stuff!

Good luck in Ellada. Don't forget to eat gyros.
Thank you.  :)

Thursday is the Feast of Ascension, so hopefully, I'll get some pictures.

I saw one of those Polish roadside religious shrine thingies in the Witcher 3 trailer, a little before the 1 minute mark.
