Twilight of OC.net, or, How To Philosophize With TheTrisagion

???
Say what?  ???
It was a lame attempt to modify a book title of Nietzsche and make a joke out of it. He says hammer (as a tool, not of destruction, but of testing), rather than TheTrisagion.

What is that about?
A broad leftist plus unions plus immigrants plus minorities
I like broads, whether immigrant or minority.  I prefer more conservative broads, but to be in union with any of them would make my wife a righteous being of fury.

My first shave with shaving soap. I've been using safety razor for some time but it wasn't until now I got a proper shaving soap. It wasn't that extraordinary as I was expecting but it was nice anyway. Not anyhow more complicated or time-consuming than using shaving foam or electric razor. I hope it helps me to reduce the amount of waste and save some money.

Someday I want to try some of those straight razors. It's seems conveniently old-fashioned, cheap and doesn't produce any waste as there is no need to buy new razors.

So I got to the doc this afternoon. I knew I'd get a lecture about my diabetes, and I mostly went because of my back pain. I had been on five meds earlier this year, but had cut that number down to three (Zoloft, Abilify, and Amaryl). After today it'll be pushed up to six meds, with new ones for diabetes (invokana), blood pressure (lisinopril), and cholesterol (simvastatin). Oh, and he suggested using ibuprofen in addition to the Tylenol I am already taking, so I guess that's eight meds total to keep track of. :-\ He also told me that in the next month I had to go to get an eye exam, foot exam, blood test, and x-ray for my back. And my a1c was 13.something. And it took 25 minutes to figure out where my medical records were (they are currently in a different county). This concludes my blog entry for today.

Things can only get better from here :)

Throw all those out and eat 1 bottle of chewable vitamins everyday.  Problem solved.

That's the spirit!

Edit: It appears that I was promoted to the rank of Merarches.
Congratulations on your promotion.  Does this give you more raw power as a mod? ;D

EVERYONE knows that those do nothing and that he must drink 2 quarts of unflavored liquid cod-liver oil daily.  THAT is the solution!

But what about that naked, raw power that comes with it?  That which is befitting of a Merarches.  (What the heck is a Merarches, anyway??)

No offense to Cyrillic meant, but I don't want to see anything to do with him related to being either "naked" or "raw."  I'm ok with power, he is good people.

A. I do not want to see ANY naked raw power, even if it is Cyrillic.
B. Google is your friend!  ;D

The merarchēs sometimes Anglicized as Merarch, was a Byzantine military rank roughly equivalent to a divisional general.

TBH, I try, but have come to realize that I cannot either.  Asteriktos is somewhat unparalleled, especially in his cadence.  He's taken it to a new level.

I almost rear-ended a car the other day trying to read the bumper sticker.  It read "Why do Catholics honor Mary?"  I tried reading the answer, which looked to be about a paragraph, but the font was way to small.  Guess I'll never know... :angel:

That is a pet peeve of mine.  What is the deal with bumper stickers written in 2pt font?  Your supposed to be able to read it from another car, dang it!

The point is that they are designed to promote intimacy and fellowship on the highways.  Sheesh..... ::) ::)

There are so many catholic orders that I never stop discovering new ones. The latest one is the Premonstratensian Order.
